December 2018 Monthly Horoscope

Welcome to the December Monthly Horoscope 2018 For All Zodiac Signs!

Theme of the Month: Ready to Soar

Wow! The December 2018 astrology reveals that  the tides are finally shifting!! This is the month that the LONG retrograde focus finally ends! The retrograde influences still linger through most of the month but you will definitely feel the cloak of retrograde energies becoming lighter and finally be removed.

The December horoscope shows that we are nearing the end of our epic series of retrograde personal planets. Until the end of December it is a time for wrapping things up to get ready for major changes that include major unveilings of things worked on and planned carefully, important steps in relationships and business and in all other areas of life, expanded future goals and plans being activated. The more we can clear up in this time before the end of December, the more we can be ready for the new clean slates that are waiting as potentials for us.

Astrology Forecast for December 2018

Life is about to change in major ways. Some of those changes may have had pieces of the puzzle come in already. The upcoming months will bring in many more pieces.

Jupiter finally in Sagittarius brings much opportunity to set dreams aflight. You may feel the welling up already of things ready to burst into creation soon.

​​​​​​​Remember as we start this once-in-a-twelve-year transit of Jupiter in its own sign that the transits can only bring in that which we are a vibrational match for. Using the remaining retrograde energies to go in deep to change your resonance with old paradigms into magnetism for a new matrix will be time well spent.

Mercury is direct early in the month (December 6) and this change in directions coincides with the Sagittarius New Moon at 15°. It will take until December 25 for the post-transit Mercury shadow to completely dissipate but once it is gone we open up into a brilliant and very rare period in January 2019 where EVERY PLANET is moving direct!!!!

There is a date I especially love this month if you have to get something out into the world in a big way, the Solstice, December 21 also has the amazing connection of Venus with Neptune in a beautiful way PLUS the lucky combination of Jupiter and Mercury in the planet of good luck, Sagittarius.

The end of the month really opens us up into the time we have been waiting for, for a very long time!!

The December monthly astrology shows that for the most of the month we are breaking free from the retrograde rhythm and the ‘rules’, cautions, and other things to know still apply.

Venus still has its post-transit shadow period until December 18. Since Venus rules love, beauty/design and money/finances/business there is a lot to know about this transit.

The December astrology also reveals that decisions in money, love, or aesthetics are best to be carefully scrutinized before making.  Even though there is much to watch out for in the retrograde cycles, MUCH MAGIC can roll in and that flow can continue heartily this month bringing us to the time of brilliant launches and radical new chapters.
