December Horoscope Forecast
Mars and Neptune come together for the first half of the December horoscope. This can be a pleasant conjunction but not so when square the Sun. The December 7 full moon amplifies this challenging configuration and is easily the most significant influence this monthly horoscope.
Friday December 7
The New Moon at 15° Sagittarius is square the Mars Neptune conjunction at 13° Pisces. So the new moon has a sinister influence. Major themes of the December 7 new moon include anger, fear, deception, confusion, immorality and perversion. At 16° Sagittarius, a fixed star in Hercules Constellation will cause irritation from women and a ruthless drive to gain power. You may experience tests of character from your competitors or enemies. Events or other people may cause confusion and disappointment, which may force you to battle against the odds. This may have a weakening effect on your vitality, making you feel paranoid and delusional.
A tendency to over idealize others can leave you open to deception and scandal. Seeing only the best in people increased the likelihood of coming disillusioned. Your good intentions to help others can easily be taken advantage of. If you are very sensitive and scare easily then you need to take precautions. Keep yourself grounded in the real world as much as possible. Stay above-board in all of your dealings. Avoid negative environments where violence, crime and drugs are prevalent. Take a defensive approach. It might be safer to submit to authority, seek a compromise or retreat. The keys to avoiding loss and disappointment from the December 2018 horoscope are honesty and integrity.
Monday December 17
Mars sextile Pluto is the next most important influence this December horoscope after the Mars Neptune alignment and the moon phases. Lasting at least one week, it gives a tremendous surge of energy to achieve your objectives and your passionate desires. This goal-directed energy is intense yet well-regulated, giving endurance and stamina. Once you have decided on a course of action, you will keep going with determination until you reach your objective. This aspect favors tackling hard projects that seemed too difficult to achieve earlier. There will be no procrastinating and you can stay focused with ease. Something deep inside is driving you, a primal kind of survival instinct. So this energy is excellent for taking the lead and making a strong impression on superiors.
You will be projecting you physicality and sexuality strongly, and will appear most attractive in this state. Your sexual energy is provocative with a hint of mystery or danger, yet non-threatening enough to land your prey. Your mate may have some trouble keeping up with your physical stamina and you may have to ease up a little if so. Though generally not an aggressive influence, you will stand up and fight if threatened or provoked. A keen instinct and surge of adrenal portend victory in battle. You can also project yourself strongly in the spiritual, or psychic arena.
Saturday December 22
The Full Moon at 00° Cancer sextile Uranus portends excitement, positive change and pleasant surprises. This is a welcome change to the last two moon phases that were both square Mars. So the December horoscope full moon makes it easy to quickly change direction, away from the anger and hostility of recent weeks. It joins fixed star Betelgeuse in Orion, associated with great power, honor and wealth. So follow your intuition and be open-minded about any unexpected opportunities that arise. New people or even a new attitude could lead to pleasant surprises with your career, finances or love life this Christmas. Venus trine Neptune is another strong influence on the full moon and is a good omen for romance.
