Scorpio - December 2018
Hi Scorpio! You will be stepping out in style in December, as Venus spends the days after the 3rd decorating your sign with her loveliness! This is a good time to go for a pre-Christmas make over; you will be more aware of the impression you project via your personal appearance now and might want to make some changes to make your look more sophisticated or mysterious, in line with your charismatic personality. Venus and Neptune combine energies between the 14th and 29th in a magical trine which is fabulous for all things creative and imaginative; you could totally reinvent yourself at a romantic level now, as your idealistic approach to love raises your expectations of what you want from a new partner. Venus and Pluto also join forces after the 22nd, so prepare for some exciting and passionate romantic encounters as the festive season reaches us!
Mercury also lingers in Scorpio for the first twelve days of the month, finally turning direct on the 7th to enable you to communicate your needs again in a way which others understand. If your birthday lies between the 13th and 22nd of November you will feel the pressure of this direction change as he comes to rest on your natal Sun during this period, and you may find it extra hard to communicate your thoughts now. Welcome relief will come from Mercury’s move to your financial sector on the 13th, as your attention is turned instead to correspondence connected to money and your income. This latter half of the month is excellent for wading through accounts and working out a financial plan for 2019. Mercury and Jupiter will be conjunct from the 16th to 26th, and this is an extremely lucky time for finding yourself on the edge of conversations about how you can enhance your income. Listen out for some original and very clever ideas.
Mars and Neptune meet in your house of leisure and pleasure for the first fortnight in December, a rather mixed bag of energies which enhances your desire to experience dramatic and adventurous pastimes, yet at the same time creates a sense of inertia and indecisiveness around you which may actually prevent you from making any decisions at all! Because of this, it won’t be easy to organise your social calendar, you won’t be sure what events to prioritise or if you even want to go out at all! Don’t overload yourself, particularly around the new Moon of the 7th when party invites will reach their height; you will need lots of rest and relaxation now and will be very much focused on spending time on your own interests. You won’t have a lot of energy left over to devote to others.
The Moon’s karmic nodes made an important sign change last month, and your spiritual learning goals for the next eighteen months will centre around your own relationship with psychic energy, on a need to analyse and hypothesise less, and trust your intuition more. You can’t control what’s coming no matter how much you think and plan, so the more you relax and accept that what will happen will happen, the more you will be able to tap into your deeply psychic and sensitive nature. This in turn will guide you to where you need to be next. The full Moon of the 22nd will help you here, as your desire to add meaning to the everyday stuff pushes you to enhance your knowledge of the world. Take up a new learning subject or plan a trip to a new and interesting place. Enjoy your December!
