The future revealed: your essential guide to DECEMBER
December in the stars. By Peter Watson
23 November – 21 December
Refuse to be harassed by family or friends insisting that you do things their way. But don’t push forward ideas of your own which, with the Sun challenging Neptune on 5 December, could prove overambitious. You and those around you must find a collaborative way of completing whatever it is you need to do together. lucky day 1st – once you speak your mind everyone rallies around you.
22 December – 20 January
An intensely personal matter may seem confusing and frustrating. But in the second half of December a light will be shone onto some relevant factors to which you haven’t previously had access. As a result, you will be armed with new information, which will mean that a solution presents itself, when it’s needed most. lucky day 16th – rules being challenged achieve the desired outcome.
21 January – 19 February
Developments within a somewhat testing area should flourish with Venus reaching a high point of your chart early in the month. This is not to say, however, that you can take chances financially or in terms of your reputation. Opportunities may seem heaven-sent but you need to approach them with rational thinking at all times. lucky day 6th – clouds hovering over a sensitive issue disappear.
20 February – 20 March
It may be tempting to toughen your approach to certain friends or colleagues but you won’t want to rupture meaningful relationships. Therefore, rather than make off-the-cuff comments when you feel under attack, remain in a neutral space. You’ll stand a better chance of defending yourself while earning the respect of those involved. lucky day 12th – influential people offer back-up, out of the blue.
21 March – 20 April
Having avoided an unusual journey or get-together, you should reconsider the situation. New thinking will reassure you that there’s much to be gained from embarking on a venture that promises more than you first imagined. One particular person will quickly let you know how right you are to take what initially seemed a daring step. lucky day 21st – applause given to your latest achievements is timely.
21 April – 21 May
Recent concerns about a close relationship should soon fade as Mercury resumes its forwards direction. Even so, you must take care not to appear irritating or intimidating as you explore a topic that will continue to be controversial. It’s important to listen carefully to what you’re being told and offer thoughtful, considerate responses. lucky day 2nd – a romantic gesture or approach warms your soul.
22 May – 21 June
22 June – 23 July
24 July – 23 August
You should suddenly find the energy and enthusiasm for a joint project previously considered unsuitable for you. Be wary, however, of friends or workmates trying to persuade you to disregard budgets, deadlines and other practicalities. Positive thinking is not enough at a time like this, as you may well discover late in December. lucky day 15th – by pursuing a dream you prove cynics wrong. For some while you must have felt the need to be more attentive towards a close relationship. Unless you act swiftly you’ll find that more damage has been caused than you ever thought likely or possible. Put shyness or awkwardness to one side and broach the issue, even though you know it will prove challenging. lucky day 22nd – admiration from afar boosts your self-confidence. Although work and family commitments will make extra demands on you, don’t deprive yourself of the kind of diversions that lift your spirits. Around 12 December especially, take seriously suggestions made by someone who realises how much you would benefit from indulging in a carefree, light-hearted episode. lucky day 3rd – your creative touch and inspiration save the day.
24 August – 23 September
Discussions as to whether a joint scheme can be approached with total optimism might confound you. And certainly Neptune’s sharp link to Uranus in mid-December could bring matters to a head. You and whoever else may be concerned will need to thrash out every little detail before signing off the plan and making a start. lucky day 20th – you trust an ally and a long drawn-out battle is won.
24 September – 23 October
At last you can confront a situation causing you to question your worth and resources. Having given the matter the attention that it warrants, you should see that you have far more to offer the world than your harshest critics may have been suggesting. It’s not about being delusional – it’s about knowing your true self. lucky day 5th – hidden talents are revealed when they’re needed most.
24 October – 22 November
While you’re busy juggling your personal life and practicalities others may feel deprived of your support. The answer isn’t to swamp them with affection but to be mindful of your tendency to assume that those around you can fend for themselves. That isn’t always the case – although nobody likes to spell it out to you. lucky day 7th – cash-flow problems ease in a totally unexpected way.
