After a brief astrological hiatus, chatty Mercury follows the Sun into outspoken Sagittarius on December 10, at which point you can count on blithely blurting out whatever's on your mind without a thought. Consequences? What consequences?!
On December 13, the new Moon rises in Sagittarius; that same day, Uranus turns direct. A spirit of initiative will run rampant, sowing the seeds of new ideas and providing support to launch new ventures.
Sagittarius enjoys one more day of excitement on December 16, when Venus moves into the sign of the Archer -- a pairing that fosters a strong merger between friendship and love. And just in time for the holidays, you can expect an increase in social activity!
It's at this point that Venus gets busy! On December 16, just after moving into Sagittarius, the planet of love immediately forms a dreamy square with Neptune; on December 19, Venus enjoys a flirtatious tryst with unconventional Uranus. Venus then snags one last hurrah on December 23 with an indulgent opposition to Jupiter.
Amid all this Venusian action, the Sun finally withdraws from Sagittarius and makes its yearly transition into Capricorn on December 21. This move always marks a time of renewal, as you shed any extra baggage and prepare yourself to start afresh in the coming new year.
Then, on December 26, troublesome winds begin to blow. It starts with a disruptive square between the Sun and Uranus; that same day, Mars shifts into Aquarius. This is a potentially argumentative time, but it'll also leave you full of bright ideas and ready to break down barriers!
The challenges continue into December 27, as Saturn and Pluto stir up the pot by magnifying problems with a bleak mentality. Finally, December draws to a close with the Sun shining a spotlight on Pluto, offering the impression that anything -- and everything -- you try will be blocked in some way.
December may not end as positively as desired, but this too shall pass -- and you'll soon be on your way in a brand-new year!
