Welcome to the December Monthly Horoscope 2017 For All Zodiac Signs!
Mercury Watch December 2017
Mercury begins December moving at a good clip, but soon slows down in preparation for a retrograde journey in January. How can you prepare for the possible snarl-ups and miscommunications to come?
Seasons December 2017
Sagittarius begins the month of December with a bright, fiery mood generated by this Mutable Fire sign. Cheerful Sagittarius is the sign most associated with hope and faith. In the season of Sagittarius we consume the last of the perishables we have harvested before hunkering down for a serious winter mood in Capricorn. In Sagittarius we feast and grow fat, so that we have enough to carry us through the dark of the year. We are generous to our neighbors, because they will huddle with us round the fire and help us keep the spark alive. This year Sagittarius runs until December 21.
The first day of Capricorn is also the winter solstice, the day when the “sun stands” still (that’s what “solstice” means) in its yearly journey north and south of the equator. On the winter solstice the sun reaches the southernmost point in its path, warming the southern hemisphere and creating summer there, while its absence cools the northern hemisphere and creates winter there. Capricorn nights are long in the north and the winter solstice is the longest, darkest one. Thus does Capricorn remind us to take a serious look at life and prepare to achieve under the difficult conditions of winter.
Lunations December 2017
Each lunation (new or full moon) has a feeling-state that human beings will be prone to under it, a general mood.
New Moon in 19º Sagittarius: Friday, December 11, 2017
An otherwise friendly and cheery placement for the Moon, this Sagittarius lunation has to deal with ouchy vibes from Chiron and big reactivity from Jupiter. One possibility is overworking, getting stressed out, critical and reactive, then collapsing in a heap from sheer exhaustion. Prevent this from being your story by pacing yourself. The sextile to Mars helps. After all, it’s the dark of the year—it’s simply not reasonable to expect too much of yourself. Keep your activity level in balance—and your mood will stay in balance too.
Full Moon in 3º Cancer: Friday, December 25, 2017
The Full Moon in Cancer already overflows with the milk of human kindness, and the trines to Neptune and Juno only add to the waters of compassion. The sheer warm-heartedness of this Moon reminds me of Christmas morning in The Christmas Carol, where Scrooge (that grumpy Capricorn) wakes up from his dreams of remorse to find it’s not too late to alter the lives of those around him for the better. As this Moon actually happens on Christmas morning, you don’t have to be a Christmas celebrator to enjoy the feeling of loving human connections. Look around you for ways to better the lives of those you love.
December’s Full Moon is sometimes called the Cold Moon.
