December, the month of over indulgence and festive fun, won’t be all sweetness and light for all of us. It may be the season of good will to all, but Mars didn’t get the memo and is spreading rage and fiery anger all over the signs.
Thankfully, Venus is on hand with some Christmas cheer and will gift most of us some harmony and general good vibes.
The effect of Venus will also bring some emotions to the surface and some of us will feel vulnerable and unsettled. We can rely on our partners most of all this month, with our friends offering support when we need it. Out work lives will be full of change and upheavals, though some of this will be minor and some will not be nearly as bad as we at first think it is. It’s important to take our time with all that’s going on and to take a step back and see the bigger picture.

Aries 3/21 – 4/19
With Venus on your side this month and Mars working against you, the best course of action for you on the whole is to take your time and be patient. In your work life this means keeping your head down and getting on with things, but most importantly this month, don’t worry about being late and not getting things done on time. It’s better to not finish things right now than to finish them badly. Venus will offer support in your personal life, which could cause confusion for you. Those close to you may seem to be attentive one minute and distant the next, but keep going through this and you’ll find nothing significant is going on under the surface.
Taurus 4/20 – 5/20
The strengthening of Venus and The Moon in your house this month, based on their positions and relation to each other, will bring about a feeling of team work and sharing through December. At work, don’t put pressure on colleagues or anyone working beneath you, but instead try to foster an atmosphere of sharing the load and working together. You’ll get much more done this way and you’ll be working in a better environment. In your personal life it’s all about sharing the love, supporting and helping each other, and sometimes just being together. Venus is strongest here and will encourage you to be active in your relationships and wider connections.
Gemini 5/21 – 6/21
The Moon’s influence will be especially strong in your house this month, and this will mean you are led by your emotions in everything you do. There’s a strong sense of karma for you in December and you may have to accept that what happens right now is a result of what you’ve done in the past weeks and months. Someone at work will let you down or disappoint you this month and your emotions are so fragile this is likely to upset you. Try to focus on your own concerns rather than what this person is doing. It won’t affect you if you don’t let it. In your personal life you’ll have the opportunity to get to know someone a lot deeper. This could actually be someone you’re already close to, but didn’t know as well as you thought.
Cancer 6/22 – 7/22
Mars and Saturn are working in tandem to bring you down this month. Luckily the position of The Moon in your house means that some of this negative energy at least will be squashed. In your work life you’re going to need to be aware and alert and to look beneath the obvious. Things aren’t always what they seem and if you can dig a little deeper into events and situations, you can stay ahead of the game. In your personal life you’ll be working on the flip side of this. Here you should be careful about letting too much of the true you and what you’re thinking out in the open. Be a little guarded and don’t wear your heart on your sleeve. Your trusted friends will know anyway, but with everyone else, don’t display your feelings just yet.
Leo 7/23 – 8/22
The planets will pretty much cancel each other out in your house this month, with only Pluto having any real influence. Pluto is going to gift you lots of personal freedom, which is great, Right? Well, yes, but you’re also going to be pretty much left on your own with this, so be careful what you do with it. In your work life this means you’re going to have to up your game and really put the effort in. The rewards are there, but it’s up to you to reach for them and make things happen. In your home life there’s less you can really do to change things and make things happen, and here you’ll be better off going with the flow and adapting to what’s going on.
Virgo 8/23 – 9/22
Mercury is really going to do its best to bring you down this month. You’ll get some support from Venus, but your tendency to feel like a failure and to suffer from low self-worth will be hard to overcome. You’ll need to stay motivated at work and you can gain some strength here from those around you who will spur you on to keep being a better version of you. Your personal life is going to be pretty much ruled by your libido this month, as this is one area you don’t have any doubts about! Try to spend some time thinking about where you’d like to be in your life and how you can make moves for this to become a reality.
Libra 9/23 – 10/22
Venus is active in most of the signs this month and for you this will mean some emotional instability. You’ll feel like your work life is precarious and your home life is unsettled. At work this will be mostly down to your desire to have more than you have right now. Ambition is good, but right now it’s causing you to feel vulnerable and you may need to limit your expectations and your goals. This will only be temporary, but it could be the difference between a calm December and a fraught one. At home you’ll feel like things are changing too fast and it’s making you uncomfortable. Try to take a step back and see the bigger picture. These changes are small, but necessary.
Scorpio 10/23 – 11/21
Mars is feeling especially angry this month and wants to rage its fiery temper in your house. Luckily Venus is strong and with The Moon in support, can counter the red planet’s anger. For you this means you’ll be presented with a lot of opportunities, but not all of them will be good for you so be careful about what you choose to do. In your work life, don’t be afraid to say no and to tell someone you disagree with them. You need to put your own interests first here. In your personal life you can pretty much go with your gut when it comes to making decisions. Sometimes too much information can be confusing and your heart already knows the answer.
Sagittarius 11/22 – 12/21
Venus is in a good mood with everyone this month and for you she’s especially strong in her positivity. Only Mercury will try to dampen this and bring some dark clouds. In your work life this could potentially cause a volatile situation. There could be some vying for attention and for the prize of achieving more. The best advice is to ignore the competition and do what you do best. Get on with your work and don’t worry about what anyone else is doing. If you don’t succeed in being first this time, you will next time around. Your home life could be quite confusing, but you should trust your feelings and take your time to react. Your decisions this month can always be changed later on.
Capricorn 12/22 – 1/19
Mars will be working hard to exploit your weaknesses and bring you down this month, but you have The Moon and Saturn on your side so you can feel confident in your champions. There’s likely to be a major change or occurrence in your work life in December. This could be a change in your role, a promotion, a change of career entirely, or it could be a change happening around you. Whatever is going on, you need to focus on your own position and what this means for you. Don’t be afraid to think big. Your love life looks pretty similar and here you should be bold. A leap into the unknown can be daunting, but can also bring great things to your life.
Aquarius 1/20 – 2/18
As with most signs this month, Mars is on the war path and creating havoc wherever it can. But you have a positive situation in Saturn who will receive a boost in energy from Uranus, making this a well-supported force for good. The best course of action for you, especially at work, is to take your time and don’t react hastily to anything. In all things work related, in fact, you should slow down and take a more measured approach. Your personal life will pan out a little differently and here it’s hard to say what will happen, but you should be ready for anything. Surprising events can catch you off guard if you’re not careful so stay alert and ready to handle anything.
Pisces 2/19 – 3/20
Jupiter and Mercury will pretty much cancel each other out in December, but Venus is strong in your house, as she is throughout the signs, and this is where most of your energy will be focussed. You may at first think that the drama going on around you at work is nothing to do with you. However, you can’t stay out of this as it’s affecting everyone and you shouldn’t be afraid to step in and say what you think. You’ll be a good negotiator and it could even be down to you to sort this mess out completely. In your personal life all looks like being rosy. Venus is bringing light to this area of your life and it’s a good time to make plans and look forward. The only fly in your soup could potentially be your family, so be prepared to deal with them with determination.
