Astrology by SlutBox: December Horoscopes
What's in the stars for you this month, Babe? Read on for your exclusive December horoscope from our resident Rosestrologist.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Plenty of raw energy is available to you this month, Aries, but it will be up to you to refine it, and define how it affects you and those around you. Jupiter reaches the midpoint of your house of relationships this month. Jupiter offers the energy of expansion and good fortune, but with the potential for pushing a lil too hard (not to mention loss of perspective). Keep this in mind around the 27th of the month, as old, unwelcome relationship patterns may crop up. So maybe re-think smooching your ex on NYE. Just a thought.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
As December kicks off, Neptune (the planet of delusion and confused thinking) forms a harsh angle to willful Mars and materialistic Venus in Scorpio. This is the astrological recipe for passion but not necessarily the kind you might be hoping for. Look out for drama between the morning of the 8th and noon on the 10th when the Moon transits through Scorpio. It’s not all so bad - retrograde Saturn is in your third house of communication helping you to find a new way of getting your point across. Just remember, you attract more flies with honey than vinegar.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Mercury, the ruler of your Sun sign, is retrograde in the 7th house of relationships, and communication with your S/O is not what it could be. There is lots of talk, talk, talk but not enough understanding. Luckily, Saturn casts an aspect on Mercury which will help you get to the root of the situation. I have a New Year’s resolution for you, Psychic Twin. Between now and Spring, focus your energy on a plan to manifest your talents, build your self-esteem and to bring in that dough. Saturn is retrograde in your 2nd house right now, but a solid plan over the next 3 months will help bring your fortune into focus.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Your Sun sign is the site for Saturn’s retrograde transit, Moon Child. The next several months will involve personal inventory taking to decide which beliefs, patterns and people in your life are keepers, and which are last year’s news. Want a little romance? Your houses of love and relationships are highlighted this month. Just watch out for uncertainty or confusion, especially around the 12th to the 14th. The winter holidays approach (your fave!) and the Full Moon in Cancer this month happens the day after Christmas. Celebrate by staying with family (blood or chosen), taking care of others, eating good food and revelling with friends. And maybe pack some mistletoe.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
The theme of the month? Expanded thinking and communication, as Jupiter continues through your 3rd house. Not only is this a good period to bust out of any limited thinking, the Sun, Mars and Venus’ transit of your 5th house is likely to inspire some creativity. And with Venus in the mix, you know romance is in the air (especially mid-month and beyond). Feelin’ under the weather? The Asteroid Chiron in the last degrees of your 6th house provides the opportunity to expand your knowledge of healing, or to consider a healing practice. If you’ve been putting off seeing your Doc or trying a new treatment like acupuncture or reiki, now’s the time, Lionheart.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Got your money on your mind? December is all about reigning in spending and saving habits (or lack thereof) that might be steering you down the wrong path. The beginning of the month is chock full of inspiration to help you develop new creative talents and skills. Even though you revel in order, no is the time for spontaneity and creativity, Virgo. Your thoughts and words carry lots of passion this month. Don’t be afraid to let others see it. Later this month, with Mercury in retrograde crossing wires and fogging up communication, try to practice patience - especially with family members. Even if things don’t go exactly according to plan.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Philosophical Jupiter is reaching the halfway mark in your Sun sign where it will spend another 10 months. Jupiter rules your 3rd house of communication and the mind and helps you articulate whatever’s in your heart. Mercury in retrograde in your communication house might have you tongue tied (or at least cloudy-headed) for a bit, but once Mars enters the 3rd house on the 26th, you’ll find it a little easier to spit things out. Looking to shake up your relationship with the fam? The last week of the month could hold an opportunity for a breakthrough. There is an old issue or two to lay to rest so you can restore some much needed peace and harmony within yourself.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
The transit of Mars and Venus through your Sun sign is already well underway as the month begins. By now, you’ve probably noticed your intensity heightened and your passion piqued. (An intense Scorp? Shocking, I know). Right now, Neptune is sharply aspecting both Mars and Venus, making things feel a little foggy. If you practice tolerance and understanding (and try not to take yourself too seriously) this could be a fabulous month for you. Manifest joy this holiday season, and you might be pleasantly surprised at just how magical this winter is for you.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Happy birthday visionary, mischievous December Sagittariuses! Jupiter, the ruler of your Sun, is now arriving at the midpoint of your House of Friends. This is your time to mix n’ mingle and inspire your buds with your ‘big picture’ view of life. Just remember to keep at least one foot on the ground, as long as Saturn is retrograde. On the 25th, fiery energetic Mars moves into Sag, ratcheting up your intensity, so be aware of your impact on those around you. There is a Full Moon in your 8th house of transformation on the 26th - you are in store for a powerful shift in the last week of the month, Sag.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Happy birthday December Caps! In the first week of the month, benevolent, expansive Jupiter transits the heart of your 10th house of career, picking up great support from the Sun and Neptune. Creative opportunities are abundant. If you have artistic or healing talents this is a great time to expand them, or consider turning them into a career. Whatever your career dreams and aspirations might be, don’t put any limits on them not. Just allow them to percolate and let the magic manifest. Saturn’s retrograde transit to your 7th house puts relationship rebuilding in the spotlight through March. Expect to get some perspective on all this around the 27th.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
New talents and interests are beginning to percolate now, Aquarius. Your 6th house - the house of health and healing as well as job and life direction - is highlighted this month. Some uncertainties about your job may surface - try to look within for answers. Saturn retrograde in your 6th house will ask you to consider these areas of your life more deeply. The rest of the world might be embarking on a health kick come New Years, but your journey starts now. Use this period to problem solve health issues, focus on a new diet or embrace some new exercise like dance or yoga - no juice cleanse required.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Themes of freedom and creativity abound, but perhaps not according to your exact standards or ideal. Not to worry, Saturn’s retrograde passage in your 5th house of creativity will ultimately bring you what you are looking for as you get closer to Spring. There is magic afoot for you, Pisces, and healing energies and opportunities all around you. Use your sensitivity for healing and magic rather than sweating the small stuff you have no control over. Jupiter in Libra in your 8th house offers a choice to expand your intuition or get lose in the drama so choose carefully.
