During this December it’s a matter of summing up – namely in terms of attitudes and perspectives. This means that we should take a close look at our approach towards life, our ideas about life, and indeed our entire philosophy of life and see whether they are still sound, says Sitara.

Mood of the Moment
In keeping with the last month of the year, during this December it’s a matter of summing up – namely in terms of attitudes and perspectives. This means that we should take a close look at our approach towards life, our ideas about life, and indeed our entire philosophy of life and see whether they are still sound. If that is not the case, we have now almost a year with Jupiter in Sagittarius to find out what best suits us.
At the same time, it is also necessary to examine our communication patterns. Does communication function satisfactorily? Do others understand us correctly? Do we understand them correctly? If not, then it’s worth looking for opportunities to make changes. After all, communication will accompany us until the end of our days.
A third topic which we ought to think through more carefully now, is the issue of siblings and relatives. Here, too, it is necessary to sum up and clearly determine what we really want, what we think is possible and what we are prepared to do, for matters to continue in a desirable direction. At the end of the month you can make a decision that will carry you for a good long while.
As far as our ability to act is concerned, we mainly have positive influences in December. It is better now to allow a certain fuzziness and to follow a soft course. Anyone who wants to do everything uncompromisingly as planned will be unnecessarily frustrated. It is best to imagine being in a warm southern country (or in India!) and then settling ones’ affairs in a relaxed and casual manner.
Aries: With Mars in Pisces, it’s about letting go. Let go of what? Anything that makes you tight, hard or impatient. Stroll through life in December in a rather Mediterranean way, even though the weather and often stressful pre-Xmas time do not invite it. Just do it differently than everyone else – Uranus, who always likes to step out of line, gives you backing. A more leisurely pace is not a panacea, but more Laissez-fair opens up a wealth of opportunities for you to enjoy life differently, as well as finding new ways of meeting people.
Taurus: Venus in your countersign Scorpio invites you to be more courageous facing uncertain situations. You don’t have to deliver a bravura performance, but a little more willingness to take risks will give wings to your creativity. If everything always remains the same, you don’t need new solutions; but in new situations also something new will come to mind and your life will turn more colourful. Relax into the unknown and trust your pronounced skill to make the most of every situation.
Gemini: The first third of the month is all about dealing with the emotional side of life. Emotions can have an enormous amount of power – over you and your environment. Those who are controlled by them do not need defence, but rather compassion – yet without getting sucked into them. From mid-December the perspective widens; now it’s about larger contexts, social, political, spiritual. Don’t get stuck in personal matters, find out what really counts.
Cancer: Up to Full Moon it is about raising yourself above personal concerns and taking care of what benefits also those who don’t belong to your immediate surroundings: the environment, human beings, animals – perhaps materially, perhaps spiritually. Find your own form, one that gives you joy. The Full Moon emphasizes your great strengths: heart warmth, empathy, devotion. Stand by yourself, but also appreciate the sober view of others.
Leo: If you are too impulsively rushing forward, your wishful thinking could now put a spoke in your wheels. First of all, get clear about what you actually want to achieve and why it is important to you. Then look around and find out whether it is in line with the spirit of the whole. And if you are convinced of that, then take action and put your ideas into practice – even if they are unusual, indeed, precisely then! Now you can achieve a lot for yourself and others and do a great deal of good.
Virgo: Your considerations can bear fruit this month, because you have really included a lot of factors in your analyses. On top of that, you realistically assess your prospects. You know, “I have limits, but whatever I do, I do it as best I can.” In the second half of December, in view of your ideals you could be overcome by self-doubts. Don’t allow that, because ideals merely exist to orientate yourself on them. Nobody is ever able to achieve them to perfection.
Libra: The start into December is coupled with turbulences, but those contain great creative potential. Be inventive and try out new ways to solve old problems. From the middle of the month on it will become quieter. Relax into what you are and what you can do and don’t let yourself be put under pressure. Then everything will run wonderfully. If, on the other hand, you try to do justice to the requirements of others, you will bend over backwards and the result can never be as beautiful as the expression that is your very own.
Scorpio: If possible, don’t make any important decisions in the first week of December, as new information may be added in the course of the month that will influence your actions. But by the middle of the month at the latest, everything will be running smoothly. Only over Christmas could there be tensions, caused by your too high expectations or the expectations of others give you a hard time. Relax, because it’s only a short-lived influence. That which really matters will win the day.
Sagittarius: In December, there’s still a strong tendency to overestimate your means, although this is gradually weakening. Conversations with others help you to a realistic view, and with this view you can bring your many good ideas into play even more effectively. In the second half of the month, don’t hesitate to clear up any mistakes or misunderstandings immediately so that they don’t gain too much influence in the first place. Orientate yourself towards a positive future, and not to nostalgic ideas and expectations.
Capricorn: A month with many small positive twists and turns. Especially in matters of the heart, creativity, and work you can be optimistic. In the last third of December, the polarity between reason on the one hand and emotion on the other becomes again more noticeable. Don’t choose either one or the other. Instead, decide for what influences the situation most positively and for the emotions that enrich all participants – you (absolutely!) included.
Aquarius: Don’t make any final decisions in the first third of the month. There is still too much to consider and you could unnecessarily offend others. Already in the second third of the month you have free rein and can give your creativity unlimited space – especially if it’s in the service of your ideals. Also, in the last third there are supporting constellations, which above all come into full use in co-operation with others. At the end of December, pay attention to a sober assessment.
Pisces: Predominantly positive influences support you in December. These are mainly those that help you to move flowingly through the month. In the last third, your relationships also become real resources, not least because you meet others openly and lovingly. Nevertheless, look for a corrective – preferably in the form of a rather unsentimental, rational person who will also impound your pink glasses, which is particularly important if you have to make long-term decisions.
