Astro Overview for December

The last month of 2018 brings about many ingresses and shifts in the motion of personal planets, which are likely to not pass unnoticed even by those of who who are not necessarily so attuned to subtle cosmic vibrations. Since everything happens so fast and the energetic dynamics is rather peculiar, we may find it difficult to relax and enjoy the holidays. Or maybe not? Let us find out:

Mercury returns to Scorpio: obsessive thoughts

On the first day of the month, Mercury returns to Scorpion, where it maintains a backward transit motion. Hence it is that we experience the tendency of obsessing over thoughts that are not positive or that may give rise to emotional imbalances. It is advisable to focus on those that give us the chance to look inside and learn something new about ourselves. Sometimes, these revelations are not what we expect, but that should not stop us to foray deeper into our souls.

Venus re-enters Scorpio: renewed passion

On the next day, it is Venus who returns in the sign of Scorpio, which it will transit in a direct motion. It is recommended that we do our best to apply the lessons learned during its retrograde period to our everyday lives. Now is a favourable time to strengthen our emotional connection with our life partners and to strike a balance in those business relations where power struggles exist and manifest in a detrimental manner. These take work, but are not impossible to achieve.

Mercury returns to transiting Scorpio directly: a moment of truth with the self

On December 6th, Mercury returns to transiting the sign of Scorpio in a direct motion, meaning that from this date until its ingress into Sagittarius, we are likely to feel more eager to meditate, reflect on what is happening inside, take a closer look at our relationships, and try to find ways to eliminate toxic situations from our lives. It is advisable that we do not steer away from asking ourselves difficult questions. Our inner voice is more likely than ever to reply, at least to some.

Mars conjunct Neptune (Pisces): creative force

Around or on December 7th, Mars will join forces with Neptune in a conjunction in the sign of Pisces, which bestows on us the force of being a force for good, to actively listen those around us, to take a stand and step in when somebody need us, but is too afraid to tell us that. Little by little, a peaceful and empathetic atmosphere is setting in, yet at the same time, we are not afraid to take the initiative and make a difference around us. Now is the time to show our support.

Mercury returns to Sagittarius: adventurous mind

On December 13th, Mercury re-enters the sign of Sagittarius, following an extended stay in the previous sign, which, for many of us, brought about a series of ephiphanies as to our limits and how far we can stretch them. As far as our personalities are grounded in a stable emotional foundation, nothing can really stop us. However, we must remember that some of the ideas we are opening ourselves to these days are not necessarily worthy to be a part of our belief system.

Venus (Scorpio) trine Neptune (Pisces) and Mercury conjunct Jupiter (Sagittarius): tough love and new horizons

Taken as a whole, these two cosmic forces that are expected to leave their mark on December 21st or any of the surrounding days are likely to help us rediscover our path, but not in a brutal manner. Or maybe it is us that lend those we love a helping hand in a time of confusion. Either way, what is clear is that if we do our best to take criticism healthily, we will reap the fruits of our attitude sooner than thought. Such a shift in how we react to feedback will make a difference.

Mercury (Sagittarius) square Neptune (Pisces): a young and restless mind

Christmas Eve welcomes us with a tense astrological aspect between Mercury, which just re-entered the sign of Sagittarius and Neptune, long-run tenant in Pisces. If we are not careful and forget to relax once in a while, all the holiday preparations and social engagements we may have around this day are likely to take their toll on our body and mood. For things to run smoothly, we need to take some time off and delegate tasks. Otherwise, we are at high risk of a breakdown.

As is evident from the paragraphs above, this year’s December is likely to be busy month not only because there are so many things that must be done to enjoy the perfect holidays. We are challenged to stay in control and not lose sight of our objectives. After all, welcoming the New Year with reasonable expectations in mind and achievable goals is the ultimate key to success.
