Monthly Horoscopes December 2018

Aries (March 21st - April 19th)

The end of the calendar year sees you focus on anything that lifts your spirits. It is time to see the bigger picture rather than the minutiae. In many ways you are in your element right now as you can go into Aries pioneering mode. You may need to take some time out to meditate or ponder the imponderables in life. However, the planets are aligned in a positive array in the 9th House of your Solar Chart beckoning you to explore new territory. Your journey may be physical into foreign lands, intellectual into areas of higher learning or spiritual through orthodox or unconventional religious organisations. This month see you on your own personal “road to Damascus”.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)

Life has been a bit topsy turvy since May this year, particularly when it comes to love and money. Nothing changes in December or perhaps everything still continues to change. Uranus, the planet of surprises, continues to influence your Zodiac Sign. The trick is to take nothing for granted. You may prefer to stay in your usual routine but that is not the way forward at the moment. You are being encouraged, if not challenged, to change the way that you view your relationship with your significant other and with money. Embrace new ways of thinking and you are likely to appreciate the results.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)

Rewards come to you this month through partnerships. This could be through your marriage, legal, de-facto or others. Alternatively, it could be through business associates or contracts. You can broaden your own vistas through co-operation and plentiful communication with partners. Rather than focusing on your own singular needs or desires, you need to turn your attention to your affiliations with others. You have positive planets aligned in the 7th House of your Solar Chart meaning that it is through compromise that you are likely to succeed now. Remaining flexible, positive and enthusiastic brings you the right kind of appreciation.

Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)

Your own health and wellbeing is highlighted this month. Anyone with strong Cancer is likely to be emotional. Strong feelings can be seated in your stomach. So it is time to attend to any physical symptom or worry that has been niggling at the back of your mind. This may mean a medical check-up, a tweak to your diet, letting go of a hurt feeling or perhaps a change of lifestyle. The choice is yours. You live with the consequence of your own choices and this month you have the chance to focus on changing your choices. It is never too late.

Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)

The planet Jupiter has moved into your fellow Fire Sign Sagittarius and is shining positive rays on the 5th House of your Solar Chart heralding a month of heightened creativity. Creativity is defined as “the use of imagination or original ideas to create something.” So the question is: What are you going to create? You may spend December having fun, taking some time out to pursue playful activities. On the other hand, you may actively start a creation. The choice is yours. Either way you are able to enjoy the lighter side of life this month. Children may also feature strongly.

Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)

Whether or not it is actually Springtime, you are in “spring cleaning” mode. The planets are aligned in a way that gives you gust of energy for cleaning and clearing spaces in your living quarters, creating room for enjoyable pastimes. It is time for fun in your home. Family members may visit from faraway lands, or you may simply enjoy streamlining for the immediate household members. The aim of December is to declutter. Most Virgos like cleanliness and tidiness. However, this month you outdo yourself. If you are not happy in your home then you may decide to move somewhere more spacious.

Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)

Your ruling planet Venus is finally moving in the right direction heralding a time of improved relationships. The balance of your life is gradually being restored after some topsy turvy, if not downright tough, times. You are ready to become more sociable, to branch out and have some fun. Instead of looking after everyone else in your life, you can now accessorize and socialise. December is likely to see you out and about in the café society, frequenting the local fashion shops, enjoying an artistic outing or celebrating a friend’s happy occasion. Connecting with your local community is the key.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)

Your ruling planet Mars is combining with the planet of illusion this month meaning that you need to slow down and contemplate life a little more. You may feel confused if you try to force yourself into action. It is possible that you are saying farewell to a man, or letting go of a project dear to your heart. On the other hand, you may be tired after a busy year. Whatever your personal scenario it is time for compassion for yourself and others. You need to renew your inner world and the outer world may have to wait a while. Create quiet times during December.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)

Sagittarians rule during December. The lucky planet Jupiter is also your ruling planet and has moved into your Sign. This portends for a happy and rewarding month at the very least. It is the right time to put your own health and happiness on the top of your personal agenda. You can teach, travel, study, spruik your wares and/or stand on your own soapbox if you like. Your natural optimism is likely to attract attention and rewards. If you would like a makeover then now is the time. Otherwise you can simply put your best foot forward and enjoy the rewards that come your way.

Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)

The serious planet Saturn continues to wend its way through your Zodiac Sign bidding you to face your fears and limitations and build on your strengths. It is possible that a long-term duty or project demands your attention. Even as one project or responsibility ends, another is likely to begin. This is your time of structure, organisation and work. The good news is that you are a commanding presence, likely to become an authority in your field, or to increase your authority. The South Node, a point of karma in astrology, has entered your Sign and with the Lord of Karma is delivering some messages from the past.

Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)

If you are feeling a little more light-hearted in December it may be because the South Node, a karmic point in astrology, has finally left your Zodiac Sign and headed into neighbouring Capricorn. Also, the lucky planet Jupiter has entered Sagittarius which is a cheerier influence on Aquarius. Good-natured Jupiter is parading through the 11th House of your Solar Chart beckoning you to socialise, seek like-minded friends and to pursue your hopes, dreams and wishes. This is your month to enjoy a busy and social calendar. Groups, clubs and associations – either your own or children’s - are likely to feature more prominently this month.

Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)

Your self-image is changing. December sees you seeking a more spiritual or physically satisfying path to health and happiness. If you feel tired then use it is a barometer to take a different direction. There is a strong focus on your career path. Perhaps your profession is demanding much of you in December. The positive planet Jupiter, considered by ancient astrologers to be your planetary ruler, is high in your chart indicating that you receive recognition and rewards through your chosen profession. If you are planning a change then it needs to be one that encourages your growth and education in your chosen field.

Monthly Horoscopes November 2018

Aries (March 21st - April 19th)

Your allegiances change this month as you question your involvement with a group of friends, a club or a cause. You are accustomed to meeting any challenges head-on. Therefore, leadership skills and independent activities are your strengths, but group politics not so much. Personal friends and family may respect your forthright, honest nature. However, this month relationships with acquaintances, associates and social groups are influenced by the feisty planet Mars, also your planetary ruler. This means that conflict needs to be resolved in as calm a manner as possible. This is not the time to ram home your point of view.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)

The Cosmic sky is alight with messages for Taurus. Everything is calling on you to pay attention to your closest relationship. Primarily your spouse (if you are married). Your nearest and dearest needs your support. You, too, may feel the need to focus on your partnership. Matters of importance may need to be discussed. An Ex may feature this month. Be careful not to fall into old relationship traps. With so much activity in your stars, this can be a loving and rewarding month, during which your connections grow and strengthen through love. Sensual pleasures, generous monetary transactions and enjoyable outings abound.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)

Once again your ruling planet, Mercury, is going Retrograde on November 17 (AEDT) prompting delays and misunderstandings in communication. This will affect everyone. For you it will be activated in the 7th House of your Solar Chart – the house of marital and business partnerships. Therefore, it is vital that you think twice before making permanent decisions regarding marital or business contracts. You need to do your research, plan and perhaps start negotiating terms, but wait until Mercury goes Direct on December 7 before finalising matters. November is also a good time to make sure that your health in heading in the right direction.

Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)

You may be pleased to know that you are able to put yourself first. You can involve others but if you want to indulge in solitude or solitary playtime then the planets are aligned in your favour. You simply have to take some time out to discover what it is that you would love to do and then book it in. If you are a creative crab then you can spend time on an artistic project. If you have always wanted to be more creative then now is the time to start a design class, take up a musical instrument or join a local arts group.

Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)

Your family is calling. Loved ones want your attention. There could be many reasons why. Your job is to pay attention. You could celebrate family events, redecorate your home or host home-based activities. Whatever your personal situation the planets are aligned in the private sector of your Solar Chart calling on you to ensure that your personal life is all that you would like it to be. The Nodes of Destiny are soon to move out of Leo heralding your last chance to tune into compelling thoughts and feelings that have been around for a while. Your “aha” moments may increase before the end of the month.

Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)

Events close to home are highlighted this month. This is not necessarily your immediate family or household but more your neighbourhood or siblings if you have any. Your in-laws may also feature more than usual. Your mind is likely to be more active than usual so focus your attention on positive plans, get organised early for those end-of-year events and ensure that you don’t take on board too much. You need to make sure that your analytical mind is kept busy on positives and not on worries. The trick is to be organised, relaxed and have priorities rather than strive for perfection in yourself and others.

Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)

November’s planets are aligned in the 2nd House of your Solar Chart indicating good fortune when it comes to your personal finances. Money matters are likely to be positive and you are well able to pay your bills, plan some fun activities and indulge in a little retail therapy. Your main lesson this month is to ensure that your self-esteem is strong. If not now is the time to make the most of any opportunities to boost your own self-worth. Two positive planets give you the wind beneath your winds to soar about personal doubts and problems, as long as you stay focussed on your own resources – your material resources and your own strengths.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)

The positive planet Jupiter is playing its last hoorah in your Zodiac Sign calling on you to make the most of the opportunities that have arisen in the last year or so. If you haven’t done so before then now is the time to face any doubts and fears, and gather your resources to achieve success – whatever success means to you. The fortunate planet Venus is also in Scorpio emphasising the positives that can be gained after a little reflection on your priorities. All areas of life are affected but love and money are likely to be the most go-ahead for you right now.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)

The lucky planet Jupiter is moving into your Zodiac Sign this month, a very fortunate event indeed. Jupiter is your ruling planet and so you are really coming into your own power. Everything that you have worked towards is likely to come to fruition now. Doors open. You need to be aware of what are worthwhile chances and what are not. Hopefully you have been resourceful in the last few years and have been working towards a goal, something that Sagittarians usually do. Now you can reap the rewards. You need to be wary of self-doubt, excess and grandiosity. It is more likely that your sunny nature succeeds at whatever captivates your heart and drives your passion.

Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)

There is a time for reaping and a time for sowing, or so the saying goes. Whether you are a domestic or mountain goat now is your time to sow because the industrious planet Saturn is in your Sign. Serious Saturn also rules your Zodiac Sign emphasising the message that what you focus on now will reap rewards further down the track. This is not a time for shirking responsibilities. Fortunately, you are a grand master at understanding about delayed satisfaction, sometimes bemused by other people’s need for instant gratification. So, the planetary message is stay focussed, keep going and you stand to reap rewards.

Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)

If you haven’t done so already you need to do one final purge of anything that is no longer useful. This is not a time to be stubborn. The Nodes of Destiny are soon to leave your Zodiac Sign and so you can make the most of the final few degrees by letting go of all that is holding you back. Think of the Leos in your life and for a brief time emulate their behaviour. You can shine in your own right once you have focussed on your purpose and let go of any self-limiting beliefs. This month your profession may be the area that needs your attention.

Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)

November sees you focussed on your career and your status in the world. Young people may feature or you may make a change in your life direction. This is not so much a social month as rather one where you act to further your own career goals, or status as a parent. It is also possible that an authority figure or a parental one features more prominently right now. You have some decisions to make but they are likely to be positive ones that promote your own health and happiness when it comes to your role as parent and professional.
