December 2011 Monthly Horoscope


March 21 – April 20 

Right from the very beginning of the month you’ll be met with challenges in your relationships.  All three of your relationship rulers (Mars, Venus and the Sun) are involved in tense aspects until the 5th, which are likely to manifest as conflicts with friends and loved ones, and even those on the perimeters of your social circles.  Because you’re going through so many internal changes right now, others may have a hard time keeping up.  Your primary relationship will take the brunt of all this tension, and any thoughts you have about taking a break will be amplified around the 10th.  Just be sure you think about the repercussions before you make any serious decisions. Steps you take now and choices you make can have far-reaching consequences.

Moon in Aries:  Dec 3, 4, 5, 6


April 21 – May 21 

This should be a relatively peaceful month for you, with your ruling planet elevated and five planets moving through earth signs. You’ll luck into some great deals starting around the 6th, when the Moon joins Jupiter in your sign. Travel is indicated around the 21st, so if you’re headed home for the holidays this year you can expect it to be a memorable excursion. This is an ideal time for you to repair rifts and to heal old wounds with loved ones. Jupiter turns direct in your sign on the 25th: so no matter how you celebrate this is an especially fortuitous time for you. The Jupiter / Taurus archetype speaks of beauty, bounty and benevolence so be sure to count your blessings and express gratitude for all that you have.

Moon in Taurus: Dec 6, 7, 8


May 22 – June 21

You’ve got so much going on this month that you may need an extra set of hands to just to stay on top of everything you’ve committed yourself to. Your ruler (Mercury) is debilitated by sign now and is also retrograde until the 23rd. This can wreak havoc for you in all areas related to Mercury, such as computers, cell phones, electronic equipment and even your automobile. It’s more important than ever for you to dot your i’s and cross your t’s — especially in any written communications, because careless mistakes can end up costing you both time and money. The total lunar eclipse in your sign on the 10th can shed light on areas that have been confusing or uncertain, particularly in your relationships.

Moon in Gemini: Dec 8, 9, 10, 11


June 22 – July 22 

Health concerns take center stage this month, with a lineup of planets in your health houses and the rulers both retrograde for most of the month. This doesn’t refer to serious illness, but rather minor or short term issues that need to be attended to. The lunar eclipse on the 10th takes place across your health axis, so pay attention to signals your body is sending you at that time. Watch for things like a lack of energy, high stress levels, sleep disturbances, etc. as these can be easily remedied. Venus and Pluto are moving through your relationship sector, and if anything can take your mind off of minor aches and pains, that ought to do it. Simply put: love, lust and romance are at your doorstep, so shift your focus in that direction.

Moon in Cancer: Dec 11, 12, 13


July 23 – August 23 

Romance is just about always in the air for you, and this month will be no different. It’s not always easy or pleasant and you’re not always on the receiving end of a loved one’s affections. But with three planets in your romance sector, a total lunar eclipse taking place across the love and friendship axis and your relationship ruler turning direct this month there will definitely be fireworks. You’ve also got excellent career related transits — with 5 planets in earth signs forming a grand trine across your work, career and financial sectors. Things should run smoothly for you in these areas, but that’s not where your interest lies. A compelling new connection expresses feelings around the 21st: if you’re single, you won’t have to be asked twice.

Moon in Leo: Dec 13, 14, 15


August 24 – September 22 

You’re more interested in keeping the home fires burning this month than you are on socializing or dealing with the public sector. Your ruler and two other planets get cozy in the house of home and family and this is where you feel most comfortable, at least in the early part of the month. Some of that domestic bliss may be shattered around the 10th however, when professional considerations force you out of hibernation — whether that is literally or just figuratively. Your ruler is retrograde until the 13th, so it’s best to hold off on making important decisions until that time. And with Uranus and Jupiter also turning direct, you should find yourself regaining some momentum and preparing to get back into the swing of things later in the month.

Moon in Virgo: Dec 15, 16, 17, 18


September 23 – October 23 

You’re thinking a lot about your past these days, including revisiting old memories and renewing old acquaintances. You may experience a profound sense of deja vu when an old flame reaches out from across the miles or a loved one reminisces about shared childhood experiences. Either way, it’s all about reliving the past as a means of moving toward the future. Written communication plays a big part in this too — whether this includes journaling, blogging, social networking, etc. or just dealing with paperwork that is necessary for your job. Pay attention to details though as Mercury and Jupiter are both retrograde and these two planets rule communications and ideas for you. Both will also go direct this month, but as they can still have lingering influences it’s important to take care.

Moon in Libra: Dec 18, 19, 20


October 24 – November 22 

This month you’re going to be dealing with money — both yours and other people’s.  This shouldn’t be a problem if you do this for a living.  But when it comes to the people you’re involved with — intimately or otherwise — things can get a little sticky.  A lot of emphasis is placed on who owns what and the separation of assets, when it probably should be placed on joint ownership and shared resources.  Be careful you don’t overstep your boundaries.  You may have to do some damage control around the 4th when a loved one becomes indignant over what is perceived as meddling.  The good news is that your ideas have merit, and when presented diplomatically can gain you important allies.

Moon in Scorpio: Dec 20, 21, 22


November 23 – December 21  

You may be feeling uncharacteristically nostalgic this month, particularly with respect relationships and to “the one that got away.”  You’re normally good at looking toward the future and putting the past firmly behind you.  But with both of your relationship rulers retrograde and with Uranus also retrograde in your romance sector this month, past relationships and lost loves will be a major theme.  All three of these planets ultimately turn direct at some point during the month, so it’s likely that this trip down memory lane is more about tying up loose ends than anything else.  But there’s an eclipse across your relationship axis this month too — so don’t be surprised if old flames start coming out of the woodwork and forcing you to revisit the past.

Moon in Sagittarius: Dec 22, 23, 24


December 22 – January 20 

You’re going to be a little less focused on career this month and a little more focused on love — much to the delight of your partner. If you’re single, even better — your transits will likely bring in new love interests, starting early in the month. With Venus and Pluto in your sign and Jupiter in your romance sector, you’re going to see your more ambitious and success-oriented nature softened. You still have strong professional aspirations and you still have the transits to support them. But this area can take care of itself if you let it — and for once in a very long time you just may. Jupiter turns direct on the 25th, so expect any hiccups in your relationship to start clearing up then.

Moon in Capricorn: Dec 24, 25, 26


January 21 – February 18 

You’re figuring out who your friends are this month, which means that you may be in for a rude awakening. With Mercury retrograding through your friendship sector for most of the month, it’s a good time to think about “cleaning house” anyway. But Mars comes along on the 4th and brings with it the potential for an explosive confrontation. Your own standards are so high which makes it easy to be disappointed in others. But there’s the added tension on the 10th with both your ruler turning direct and a total lunar eclipse that brings everything to a head. It’s out with the old and in with the new from that point on, and you ‘ll find that the friendships you’ve gained far out-value those you’ve chosen to let go of.

Moon in Aquarius: Dec 26, 27, 28


February 19 – March 20

You’re not generally the most rational person even under ordinary circumstances. You’re far more likely to be governed by feelings, emotions and natural intuition. But this month you’re going to have to rely on practical considerations, especially regarding matters of the heart. Mars has been moving through your house of relationships for some time now. It’s also in Virgo, a sign it’s not at all comfortable in. But it does force you to analyze and look at things realistically. If you’ve been operating under any illusions about your relationship, a hard aspect to your ruler on the 4th may be the wake up call you’ve needed. By the 13th things should be resolved for the better, even if your relationship has been forever changed.

Moon in Pisces: Dec 28, 29, 30, 31
