Mood of the Moment
This month there’s something for everyone, all elements are well presented – the element of fire bestows energy, enthusiasm and vitality. The element of earth lends realism, patience and consistency, while the element of air lends sociability, curiosity and light-heartedness. And the element of water provides empathy, depth and imagination. Anyone lacking the quality of an element can fall back on it by inviting the respective qualities.
Other than that, although we’ve already left behind the Uranus Pluto square, Uranus provides excitement with Pluto getting in on the act too. This results in aggressive propensities and the tendency toward rash actions during the first half of the month. However, they can be wonderfully intercepted by the wisdom of the heart as well as by clever ideas and wise measures. Unrest during the second half of the month is more related to spiritual matters. The consequences are quarrels, controversies and even manipulation and indoctrination. This time the balance comes about through inner expansion, namely by directing our attention to the big picture and remembering one’s own generosity.
Aries: Give up your lone wolf existence and synergise with others. In December you have good chances for that to succeed. However, you should leave power issues out of it. No need to compete obsessively with others: if everyone contributes their abilities, in the end a better result can come out than you trying to cover all tasks on your own. A willingness to compromise is necessary because every person is different – this is the challenge and at the same time the big bonus of human existence.
Taurus: The situation settles down. Let yourself be cradled by Neptune’s calming waves. Now a lot will work much better if you relinquish yourself confidingly to the big whole instead of trying hard to produce results out of thin air. But do keep your keen eye and don’t let yourself be lulled. As long as you remain human and broad-minded, everything will develop in a positive direction. Larger innovations and radical u-turns are not yet to be expected, therefore, proceed step by step.
Gemini: Try out something new now. Just don’t expect that ideal conditions will come about by your actions. From the 10th onwards it is about a slow and steady build-up. This is not always inspiring and brings your impatience into action. Relaxation exercises, movement in water, but also profound encounters with other people will calm you. Only by the end of the month do new doors open and allow you a better overview – you concern yourself less with individual small building sites, but see them in a larger context.
Cancer: A month with lots of movement requiring flexibility and joy experimenting with different approaches and forms of expression. If you’re fixated on everything having to run as usual or in the way you feel the most comfortable, you’ll only set yourself up for frustration. Instead, approach everything playfully, and with the new moon in Sagittarius dare some little adventures; they give you momentum and optimism. Think less, be a little more courageous and experiment with changes in your day-to-day life.
Leo: You move into December with dynamic and enthusiasm. If you are paying attention during the first half of the month not to understate or exaggerate, remaining as centred as you can, the initial momentum will carry you through the whole month. In the last third of December the energy turns clearly within and now it is a matter of bringing your professional ambitions in harmony with your private life. Enjoy the latter by allowing more silence and contemplation. This will regenerate you and you will benefit from it in your professional life as well.
Virgo: In the first half of the month you tend to attribute too much importance to external circumstances. Stay calm, modest and simple. You needn’t be wiser nor in any way special. Relax, attend to what’s needed and enjoy the small pleasures of life. That’s enough. In the second half of the month this will be so much easier for you and because you are more in tune with yourself, new paths towards others reveal themselves also. Be loving and human without wanting to prove anything to anyone.
Libra: A powerful month, and for starters you have to be able to handle this power. Now your too distinct willingness to compromise takes a backseat and you finally know what you want. But now what? First and foremost it is not a prerogative of others to vehemently demand things and maybe somewhat exaggerate. Use December for your own experiments. From time to time there may be slip-ups, but you’ll notice that you are getting better and better in asserting yourself in an elegant and compassionate manner.
Scorpio: Venus in Scorpio makes it easy for you to open your heart to people and situations. The tendency to look at everything overly critical decreases, and above all you are seeking beauty and harmony and taking pleasure in it. You needn’t prove yourself or show others where it’s at and don’t even have to ‘win’ in conversations. Now it is only about cooperation, the exchange of feelings and shared enjoyment. If you cannot share with anyone, enjoy nature, music, art, and literature by yourself.
Sagittarius: Sagittarius strives for the light and tends to ignore the shadows. Under Saturn that’s no longer possible. The trick is now to clearly perceive the dark sides without letting them pull you down. If you can manage that you will be able to decide in December about new inspiring ways instead of constantly having to watch out for that which isn’t yet up to scratch. At the end of the month it’s about meeting, exchanging and mutual learning. Sounds a little bit like work, but is in fact pure pleasure.
Capricorn: The emphasis is now not so much on action, but first and foremost on thinking, understanding and communicating. What will help you more in December than an application of strength and assertiveness is a clear analysis of the circumstances. On the one hand it’s a matter of comprehending everything accurately, on the other hand also about realising the larger context of things. The latter relaxes you because you will discover that not everything depends on you – which also enables you to allow yourself to be at the receiving end.
Aquarius: A harmonious beginning of the month, opening up new opportunities and avenues during the first third. From the second third onwards, tensions may arise. It is about the feeling that you or others lack in vigor, determination, courage and commitment. For all of this to develop, in particular right motivation is needed. If it is clear to whom or what your commitment applies to and that the goal is worth it, the energy will develop by itself. Then even resistance or disputes can’t throw you off course.
Pisces: In the first third of December the mood may be somewhat muted. But then the sky clears up and harmony suffuses the rest of the month. You might not know where the journey leads to but you feel connected to other people and to life itself. Your heart is free again, full of compassion and confidence. It is a pleasure to talk with others, perhaps to learn from them or to do them some good. Stay in touch with people, because you are less in need for protection than you think.
