Your December 2016 Horoscope with Astrologer, Maya White

December 2016

Aries – (March 19 – April 18) Your energy is bright and focused now, Aries. Maintain efficiency and get as much done as possible before month’s end. Mars must pass through the treacherous waters of Neptune on December 31st, so you want to be well positioned on high ground. Remain open to opportunity, but don’t second guess your decisions! You’re in a good place. Keep it that way, and plan on making the New Year even better.

Taurus– (April 19 – May 19) Good fortune is shining on you, Taurus. You must move past that wall of fear, but the results will be worth any trepidation. The stars are asking, urging, that you make the commitment. Do it sooner rather than later, though; Mercury stations retrograde on December 19th, and you want your paperwork all zipped up before then. Make time for a special Holiday season; many gifts are coming your way, and love is in the air.

Gemini– (May 20 – June 19) December finds you deep in thought. Partnerships are highlighted early in the month, but the Gemini full moon on the 13thputs the ball back in your court. It really IS about you. And Pluto invites you to dig into what you NEED. Because of Mercury retrograde, this is a month to think, but not the time to take action. The winds of change are blowing; they will take you safely to your next harbor at the right time.

Cancer(June 20 – July 21) You are called to participate fully in this holiday season. Pace yourself because the planets have you sitting like a hinge in the Cosmic doorway. Everybody is looking to you for assistance while you’re wondering when the work fairy will come to help with your many tasks. The good news is: the fairy does come! Christmas and Hanukkah fall on the same day, and there is magic in the air – receive it.

Leo– (July 22 – August 21) Jupiter and Uranus are a dynamic pair, and this month they ignite your information sector. Pay attention to your hunches and inspirations because there is true greatness in ideas that come your way. Even Mercury retrograde (after the 19th)helps you tune into your intuition. Don’t get bogged down in details now. You need some dream time – days by the ocean with a notebook and only yourself to please.

Virgo– (August 22 – September 21) Something mysterious is afoot, and you may even feel that you’re being treated unfairly as Mars enters Pisces, your 7thhouse on December 19th. This is the same day that Mercury stations retrograde. Mars and Neptune working together form a wild shadow brew – a concoction of intrigue tinged with quaint overtones of aversion. And you, Virgo, must get to the truth. Keep digging; it’s not about you.

Libra– (September 22 – October 21) The fortunate planets are twinkling in your air space, Libra. Jupiter now shines as a bright Morning Star, Venus lights up the evening. Responsibility lies in the choices you make; you get to choose between something that is predictable, and the other option, which is magnetic and exciting. Go with the sure bet because although the stars are bright and shiny, things get complicated by New Year’s Eve.

Scorpio – (October 22 – November 20) You are called to make an important decision that overrides your logic and digs right into your heart. Yes, Scorpio is an intuitive water sign, but your logical mind is a Saturn ruled entity and you like the luxury of thinking things through. However, this is no time to let fear creep into your energy field. Surrender to the big picture and fill the cup of hope for your future. Move decisively and trust your instincts.

Sagittarius– (November 21– December 20) Time is a priceless commodity. As the Sun filters through your sign this month, think about how you can leverage your precious time in the coming days. You need breathing room and space to fulfill your wanderer’s destiny without sacrifice. The New Year brings you the deliverance of being CEO of your own life. It’s a divine gift; use this power wisely, Sag.

Capricorn– (December 21 – January 19) Stay on the high road, Cap. With Pluto and Mercury spinning like a binary star in your sign, December is a wild ride. The secret to success is – don’t get distracted like the rest of the world. You are a brand of wisdom and it’s the perfect time to monetize your stability. Stand tall and proud; Jupiter and Uranus can teach you some new tricks, and everybody will love what you bring to the Holiday table.

Aquarius – (January 20 – February 17) Eat, drink, and be merry as both Venus and Mars, the personal planets, embrace your sign this month. Mercury and Pluto are nagging at your unconscious, leaving you feeling unsettled, but really, there is not a darn thing you can do to even influence what Pluto is digging up. It’s time to make people wonder why you’re so happy. Surrender to joy and receive the blessings of this Holiday season.

Pisces – (February 18 – March 18) December presents a litmus test of the New Year ahead for you. Just pay attention, and let people show you who they really are. Look past any sleight of hand and remember those old tricks that you learned about long ago. IF the magic is real – you’ll know by mid-April. I know it seems like a long time to wait, but Venus has a grand plan for you.
