Finish Up Those Turkey Leftovers—December Horoscopes Are Here

This month, we’re transitioning from freewheeling Sagittarius to focused Capricorn. Sagittarius is the sign of expansion, whether it’s your physical location or way of thinking. This season has a way of putting you in situations that stretch your comfort zone, and the holidays are all too often one of them. If you aren’t sure what to do, channel Sagittarius and have an open, honest talk about what you want out of your vacation days! Once Capricorn season starts on the 21st, it gets much easier to stand up for what you want and make concrete plans. Be clear about your expectations, and your parties and gatherings will go off without a hitch.

Mercury has been retrograde since November 16th, and it kicks off this month by backtracking into sensitive Scorpio on the 1st. Alluring Venus also moves into Scorpio on the 2nd, so together, these planets will help you tune into feelings that usually sit just beneath the surface. Listen closely, because you’ll get some major insight into your relationships once Mercury is direct again on the 6th. Plus, the confident Sagittarius new moon the next day gives you the chutzpah you need in order to go after a goal that might have made you blush six months ago.

Once Mercury moves into Sagittarius on the 12th, the conversation will be much more free-flowing. Everyone’s outspoken and ready to share their opinion, but remember to listen too!. The holiday season really gets underway when the full moon lights up warm-hearted Cancer on the 22nd, encouraging you to cozy up to the people you love most. It sets the stage for two weeks of winter bliss, before energetic Mars into Aries on New Year’s Eve kicks off 2019 with a major rebellious streak. Enjoy the peace while it lasts, and get ready for an exciting year to come.
