December 2023 Horoscopes are here!

*FOR ALL SIGNS: Mercury retrogrades on December 12th at eight degrees Capricorn and will stay retrograde until January 2nd, which will be at twenty-two degrees Sagittarius. Thus, for the whole month, do your best to avoid miscommunications and address whatever unresolved workplace projects are outstanding so that you can enter 2024 with as clean of a slate as possible. This also means playing it safe while traveling on New Year’s Eve.

Aries (Spring Equinox-approx. April 21st): As December 2023 begins, you may find an abundance of energy present to help you achieve your goals, so it would be wise to have your list of goals for the month ready. A challenge may be present when it comes to personal communication in the workplace, but this can be mitigated by taking extra time to be clear when dealing with coworkers. Romantic relationships may be wrought with challenges, too, but this will be short-lived. Tension may generally be present the first few days, but this will fade quickly. As the month continues, the workplace may become the focal point for the last two weeks, as wrapping up projects and dealing with misunderstandings may take center stage. This may present challenges to other areas of life, but the silver lining is that if you do the work, you could enter 2024 with a clean and healed slate. 

Taurus (Approx. April 21st to approx. May 21st): Emotionally, December 2023 may begin with its share of challenges, but these will fade within the first few days. Like Aries, the workplace may take center stage, but unlike the rams, the Taurus emphasizes laying a foundation for the future. Prosperity and expansion remain two major themes throughout the month but be careful to keep the expansion to positive areas of life rather than the waistline. As December matures, your career and occupation may take precedence, and while some of this has to do with wrapping up projects by the end of the calendar year, some may also address laying the groundwork for 2024. The last week of the month may be full of pleasure to an excess, a danger to avoid. Watch for unexpected financial and health blessings coming your way to usher in the New Year. 

 

Gemini (Approx. May 21st to Summer Solstice): Even though tension may be in the air when it comes to speaking your truth and traveling, you may find a sense of optimism and creativity is also present. Regarding your romantic relationships, you may find that your decisions now have far-lasting consequences. The more tender you are now when interacting with your paramours, the better off you may be to begin 2024. As December advances, most of the tension in the air will dissipate, but remember that Mercury retrograde is coming up, so the more you remain adaptable and humble, the more you can resolve before the New Year. Spiritual challenges may remain the entire month, but these are all part of your maturation process and can be dealt with with patience and deferred gratification.

 

 

 

Cancer (Summer Solstice to approx. July 21st): Tension may be the theme of the beginning of December, so if you were hoping for a gentle start, you may be disappointed. Challenges may be present regarding your inner healing, romantic relationships, workplace communication, and figuring out your spiritual direction. However, your creativity, intuition, financial abundance, and good health are in your favor. As December continues, many of the challenges fade, but one life area that may still need to be dealt with is the career and occupation. Communication problems may be frequent, and there may be a sense of urgency to wrap up projects before the calendar’s end. Your daily life may interfere with where you’re going in a broad sense, but not all interferences are bad, as you may learn. Enjoyment may be found in getting to the root of repetitive patterns in relationships if you take the time to research.

 

 

 

Leo (Approx. July 21st to approx. August 21st): Like Aries, you may find excess energy at your disposal as December 2023 begins, and with this may come increased optimism and creativity. Romantic relationships are also rolling along smoothly at this time, and with this may come money and access to the finer things in life. Regarding finances and food, it would be wise to play things conservatively until 2024 arrives. As December continues, you may discover the extra energy has dissipated to be replaced by challenges in your romantic relationships. These problems may be due to ego clashes, so compromising when appropriate would be smart. Your daily life may still be full of unexpected situations that challenge your emotional control, and you may be more prone to excess than normal, so while you’re looking ahead to 2024, keep your focus on daily life if possible.  

 

 

 

Libra (Autumnal Equinox to approx. October 21st): Romantic relationships may continue to be a major focal point for the beginning of December, and I encourage you to ride this wave as much as possible because this will dissipate shortly after the end of the first week. Your creativity may be stronger than normal, too, and if you apply yourself, you may discover that your projects turn out better than desired. As December matures, the good times change to challenges that have to do with your career, occupation, and overall direction of life. Travel may be enjoyable towards the latter part of the month, but to offset this, you may find it is time to eat a piece of humble pie or at least be honest with yourself about some uncomfortable truths about your personality. With some work, you may find you are in a position to create spiritual growth.

Scorpio (Approx. October 21st to approx. November 21st): When it comes to your daily life, you may find the best way to proceed as December begins is by playing things conservatively and cautiously. Your career may be rolling along nicely at the beginning of the month, but your personal life may require many minor adjustments through mid-December. As the month continues, you may get tested on your ability to deal with daily life, health, and money, but if you handle these subjects well, it might just free up your energy and attention to focus on the big picture of life rather than the small details. Money may flow easily to you through your business the later in the month it gets, and your romantic life may show a spark of passion and intensity. 

 

Sagittarius (Approx. November 21st to Winter Solstice): Happy birthday Sagittarians! This is your month to let your hair down and celebrate. Optimism, extra energy, wanderlust, creativity, and good fortune may all be found in abundance, so if you stay alert, you may capitalize on many good things that might otherwise be missed. Romantic relationships may be rolling along nicely and smoothly, but the later they get in the month, the more they may require adjustments. As December marches, adjustments may become the norm rather than the exception. This may be particularly true in your career and romantic relationships. Impulsiveness may be a temptation to deal with throughout the month, as is the desire to be blunt rather than tactful. It would also be smart to be careful when traveling.

Capricorn (Winter Solstice to approx. January 21st): Personal communication and adaptability in the workplace may be major themes that usher in December 2023, and if handled carefully, you may maneuver yourself into a solid position to welcome January 2024. Dealing with money and work may be smart for the beginning of the month, and paying attention to your diet would also be good to keep in mind. As the month progresses, you may find that almost everything, and I do mean almost everything, comes together and rolls along smoothly. The only challenges left as January 2024 looms have to do with internal healing, particularly concerning your ego and sense of self. Do your best to avoid head injuries, and be careful with your sweet tooth. 

 

Aquarius (Approx. January 21st to approx. February 21st): Your daily life may continue to present challenges, which might also be true of money and health as December 2023 begins. Your emotions may be tense at the beginning of the month, but this will only last a few days. Traveling might be a good remedy around the beginning of the month, so if you get the chance, you may want to indulge. As December advances, things may become generally challenged, with special emphasis on your daily life, romantic relationships, and money through business. A subtle danger to note is that of getting in your way, and this can be remedied through humility and being open to new and different ways to do things. This is part of your ongoing internal healing process and can help you open up to new, positive experiences towards the middle of 2024. 

 

Pisces (Approx. February 21st to Spring Equinox): On the surface, things might be rolling along nicely and smoothly as December 2023 begins, but if you dig deeper, you will find challenges and problems that have to do with spirituality and travel. Communication may also be challenged, but specifically, as it pertains to speaking your truth. Money may easily come to you through your daily grind, and expansion opportunities can be found around every corner. Once the middle of the month rolls around, a sense of even better things may come for you in early 2024. Dangers while traveling, spiritual quandaries, and issues with honesty may be the only problems left to deal with in late December, but if these are handled well, January 2024 may bring a whole new positive world full of potential waiting to be developed.
