The year may be ending, but you’re still eager for new experiences and ideas. With the Sagittarius Sun soaring through your horizons-broadening ninth house until December 21, you might end the year by signing up for a weekend workshop or a personal-growth seminar. Staying ahead of the curve is always a plus for your trailblazing sign, and it would be nice to end 2017 with some new skills and perspectives. The Gemini full moon on December 3 could spark a conversation or lead you to the perfect book, TED talk or podcast that inspires you to sign up. If you’re an indie business owner—or thinking of becoming one—the Sagittarius new moon on December 18 marks an auspicious lucky day for a little risk-taking.
With your ruler, energizing Mars, in your interpersonal house all month, it could feel like everyone wants a piece of you. It will be hard to say no to the enticing possibilities, especially since your sign loves nothing more than starting a new project. Consider the ROI before diving in, however. When Mars sails through focused Scorpio and your eighth house of long-term wealth from December 9 to January 26, turn your attention to things that will pay off in a big way.
Joint ventures also fall under the eighth-house domain, and a partnership could heat up. But with Mercury retrograde from December 3 to 22, don’t rush to ink any deals or contracts. A large expense could stress you out, so don’t go crazy with the holiday gifting, especially if you’re tempted to put something on a credit card. Even if you do have the funds, be sure to check your receipts and statements, as Mercury retrograde in this fiscal zone could signal an error.
On December 19, ambitious Saturn makes a big, bold move, vaulting into Capricorn and your tenth house of career until December 17, 2020. The next three years will be MAJOR for your professional ascent if you play your cards right. You’re standing at the precipice, and your task is to create a blueprint that will lead you there. Tread carefully and take calculated steps, Aries. While there may be some hurdles to leap over during this Saturn phase, they’re all designed to make you better, stronger and faster. Don’t cut corners or look for shortcuts.
Follow due process and only work with people who are the best at what they do. You could benefit from working with a mentor now—or by mentoring someone who’s in a more freshman phase of their career. There’s no better way to perfect your own skills than by teaching them to somebody else!
December 2: Jupiter-Neptune trine
Doing ethical business with people you respect IS possible, especially as these two idealistic planets unite. A project meant to change the world could receive funding and support. Apply the Law of Attraction since potent energetic forces are at your disposal today.
December 3: Gemini full moon
Today could bring long-awaited news or a chance to take an idea viral. It’s an excellent day for meetings, networking and brainstorming.
December 16: Sun-Uranus trine
Take the road less traveled…or pave one yourself! Your originality could make a huge splash today. Go bold.
December 18: Sagittarius new moon
Plant the seeds for inspiring and visionary ideas that you’d like to unroll over the next six months. Invest in your education and skills with a class, workshop or online seminar. With the Sun, moon, Mercury, Venus AND Saturn all in Sagittarius today, you’re an unstoppable force of nature. You won’t know the meaning of the word “impossible”!
December 28: Mars-Neptune trine
Driven Mars in your wealth and power zone aligns with healing Neptune. Gather a team of influential people and exploit your clout to promote an artistic and/or world-changing project. Your creativity could draw acclaim, giving you a platform to reach a wider audience. Use whatever resources you’ve got (people, connections, enthusiasm) to your advantage.
December 1: Mars-Uranus opposition
Your impatience with a collaborator reaches full tilt, and you can barely mask your irritation. With hotheaded Mars battling impulsive Uranus, you may be tempted to make a move without checking in with the team. This erratic or tyrannical behavior will cost you, so don’t go there.
December 3-22: Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius
Communicator Mercury in your expansive and visionary ninth house reverses course, causing you to rethink or simplify your grand plans. Take a slower approach, delay launches, think it through more carefully. Watch those off-the-cuff remarks as you could offend the wrong person.
December 3: Sun-Neptune square
Your grand plans may be a little more than you can realistically handle. Or they may not be grounded in enough reality. Be careful whom you trust, as someone may be dangling big promises or playing to your ego. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is, so kick the tires and check under the hood!
December 19, 2017-March 21, 2020: Saturn in Capricorn
Mature Saturn begins a new three-year cycle through your professional tenth house, revamping your career trajectory and preparing you for the big leagues, perhaps with a few tests and challenges designed to make you stronger.
December 21: Sun-Saturn meetup
You could feel a bit pessimistic or daunted about your goals today, thanks to Saturn’s heavy presence. Know that this energy will pass in a couple days. Use it to get really clear and honest with yourself about your professional path and next steps. Tone down your wild streak, and err on the side of being TOO formal so you’re not seen as a loose cannon.
