There is no better boat than a horoscope to help a man cross over the sea of life.

Aries

Aries

21 March – 19 April

After the cosmic eclipse dust has settled, you’ll know something you didn’t know before. What you learn gives you an enviable edge over your competition, but whether you use it to your advantage in your professional or personal life is up to you. Be on the lookout for an exciting piece of gossip in the form of an enlightening article, television show or social media post. Eclipses have a way of diverting plans, and this month is no exception. For that reason, December’s full Moon recommends you prepare an option B. Rams negotiating a lucrative deal should be especially cautious before signing on the dotted line. Read the fine print – twice! No matter how desperate you are to get started, do your due diligence and avoid false promises. Neptune helps you let go of an ex, past relationship or an unhealthy attachment. It’s time to move towards the new year, feeling more supported, content and secure.

Aries

Taurus

20 April – 20 May

December’s full Moon examines your finances under a cosmic microscope. Reality bites if you’ve been sticking your head in the sand, hoping things will miraculously improve on their own. On the other hand, getting serious about your moneyscape empowers you to make an impressive improvement. Wrap up the year knowing that every small saving contributes to greater financial security in 2022. Saturn and rebellious Uranus see you at loggerheads with your boss, team leader or parent. You know your point of view is the right one in your heart of hearts, but rocking the boat isn’t wise. Choose your battles, Taurus. If you can’t afford to lose the argument, fight for what you believe in, but if it’s not do-or-die, simply walk away. Save your energy for more positive discussions. Your Christmas stars remind you of the law of attraction – the vibe you project is what you’ll get back.

Gemini

Gemini

21 May – 20 June

Twins are held accountable by a professional partner, bestie or sweetheart. Yet, this person’s goal isn’t to belittle, condescend or strip you of confidence. They simply want you to be the best you can be, and they’re willing to serve you up a dose of cold, hard truth to help you grow. Listen and learn, dear Gemini, because December’s eclipse can make epic changes, provided you’re willing to put this reality check to good use. Mars pokes at a sensitive relationship concern, causing a clash of words that reopens an old emotional wound. Still, the issue disappears as fast as it arose, so avoid spitting out verbal venom that you can’t retract once things are back to being lovey-dovey. Singles forge a passionate connection with a hot-blooded Aries or Scorpio, Sun, Moon or Ascendant sign. This one spells trouble, so enter at your own risk! December closes a karmic chapter for Twins that have done it tough in 2021, with bluer skies forecast for the second half of the month. 

Cancer

Cancer

21 June – 22 July

Neglecting your health? Then December’s stars ask that you step up your wellness game, Cancer. This includes your mental and emotional health, too, so think about strengthening your resilience in these areas. Meeting in a support group, either in person or on a social media platform, provides the perfect solution to a puzzling problem. There, you can chat with like-minded individuals that understand where your head is at. But most importantly, surrounding yourself with people who relate to your situation proves emotionally cathartic for you. Christmas Day brings a small victory concerning money or a shared personal possession. The score settles in your favour, as a weighty burden is lifted from your shoulders. Tying up this loose end couldn’t have come at a better time. Because when the Sun lights up your relationship zone on December 22nd, you’ll be ready to move onwards and upwards, either with your sweetheart or with a new love by your side.

Leo

Leo

23 July – 22 August

With Neptune no longer reversing through your sex zone, it’s time to abandon bedroom inhibitions and let your inner sex goddess roar! Find the freedom to explore your wildest fantasies, Leo. Blissed out couples add some spice to their love-making repertoire while singles spread their sexual wings. Just make sure you’re safe, consensual and on the same passion page. When it comes to lending money, December isn’t a good month to be overly generous. Neptune creates confusion around payback details, making it likely you’ll part with your hard-earned cash permanently. Can’t say no? In that case, only lend what you can afford to lose. See it as an act of charity rather than a loan. Some Leos team up with a business partner, manager or investor with a unique point of difference or a quirky trait. This can work to your advantage, provided you’re crystal clear on the Ts&Cs of your arrangement. The cosmos delivers an unexpected yet lovely surprise on Christmas Day.

Virgo

Virgo

23 August – 22 September

Impending change becomes a reality as the new Moon eclipse rocks your home sphere. Thinking about leaving the family nest? This month sees you embracing an independent lifestyle – and loving it! On December 19th, Venus rewinds in your love zone, tempting you to go back over old ground. Still, do you really want to go there? A much better idea would be to commit to moving onwards and upwards. Happy couples deepen their connection by blocking past demons and resisting temptation. If you have to, fight tooth-and-nail to protect what’s yours. Legal contracts, leases or agreements come to a satisfying close this month as Jupiter bestows you with a stroke of luck. On top of that, Neptune’s change of pace advances negotiations and official procedures. Whip up some festive cheer with a creative approach to this year’s Christmas decorations – the magic is in the details.

Libra

Libra

23 September – 22 October

Blame December’s eclipse for a communication mishap. Chinese whispers have distorted your original message, but instead of trying to clear the air, leave things as they are. Pick up the conversation at the end of the month, after the eclipse runs out of steam. The situation is salvageable, provided you don’t allow your emotions to get the better of you. For now, patience is your best option. December’s full Moon entices you on a holiday or an interstate trip to visit someone close. Be on the lookout for a special discount that sounds too good to be true – it’ll turn out to be the real deal. Spruce up your sanctuary when Venus reverses through your home zone – a talented online designer has just the look you’re after. Pop over to her IG page or website for interior inspo. Christmas Day brings you closer to your wife, grandmother, mother, daughter or sister. Verbalise just how much they mean to you in a beautifully handwritten card.

 

Scorpio

Scorpio

23 October – 21 November

Jupiter’s motto is ‘more is more’, so when the planet of plenty visits your love zone, expect an influx of romantic gestures and declarations of adoration. Still, the stars don’t dictate whether the love is for or from you, so if you want more love in your life, dish out what you want in return. Bravely ask someone out or open up about your feelings – they’re likely to be reciprocated this month. The same goes for Taken Scorpios. Don’t assume your partner knows how you feel about them. A little reassurance goes a long way towards building trust, understanding and intimacy. From December 22nd, the Sun supports communication. Open your mouth, and the right words will simply flow out. Money matters are December’s sore spot, thanks to the new Moon eclipse. Overspending is almost guaranteed, but you can always tighten your belt next month. Christmas Day surrounds you with chatty friends and family. While you’ll enjoy the thrill, the relaxation that follows the madness is even better.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius

22 November – 21 December

Yours is the sign that hosts December’s eclipse, Sagittarius; all cosmic eyes are on you! This endows you with raw personal power, capable of extreme good – and not so good. But first, let’s focus on the positives. Archers that desire change simply click their fingers to manifest a new and improved path. Redirect a life goal, change your career or instigate a relationship shift that may involve a healthy ending or a brand-new love-up chapter. Put simply, if you want something different, this eclipse has your name on it. However, clinging to something that’s past its use-by-date isn’t wise. The tighter you try to hold on to your comfort zone, the more it will slip through your fingers. Your challenge is to go with the flow and trust that the Universe has your back. Christmas sees you spending big bucks, but you really couldn’t care less, as long as you’re creating beautiful memories with all the bells and whistles.

Capricorn

Capricorn

22 December – 19 January

Happy solar return, Capricorn! The Sun warms up your sign from December 22nd into the new year. A recent tough run has dished up more twists and turns than all the zodiac signs put together, yet December sees you more uplifted, supported and self-assured. It’s time for you to step out of the shadows and embrace the spotlight. Not one to shout your own praises from the rooftops, now, you can confidently share your gifts. This is especially true in your work relationship with a female coworker or team leader, so don’t be humble about your professional strengths. Loving Venus teams up with passionate Pluto twice in your sign, heating up an already intense connection. Singles uplevel their crush, while couples clash over jealousy. Don’t let the green-eyed monster get the better of you, Capricorn. You’re better than that. Christmas Day brings a sense of relief and a good reason to be optimistic about the year ahead.

Aquarius

Aquarius

20 January – 18 February

Both your planetary rulers make a rare and exciting alignment on Christmas Eve. Saturn and Uranus’ link pokes your inner rebel, causing you to push back against something or someone that’s forcing you to go one way when you want to go another. This month, you know exactly what you want, and even more importantly, who you are. Stick to your guns, Aquarius. You’re an enigma to others, but when it comes to your beliefs, you know exactly what you stand for. Refuse to be coerced, guilt-tripped or pushed around! December’s eclipse highlights friendships but be careful that a newbie is all that she seems. Remember that trust must be earned and cannot be fast-tracked. That said, a beautiful new connection is on the horizon. This person comes through your networking circles or is introduced by a mutual friend. La Luna inspires love with a capital L. Single? Get ready to embrace all that you’ve tried so hard to manifest over the past year. Couples enjoy a romantic night of Christmas celebrations that turns out to be hilarious fun!

Pisces

Pisces

19 February – 20 March

Venus’ rewind reevaluates a special project or long-held aspiration. It’s time to rework your plans to fit in with updated goals, especially when it comes to money matters. And remember to investigate potential pitfalls before investing your hard-earned cash. Now that Neptune has ditched its retrograde spend a few days grieving your losses, and then pick yourself up, dust yourself off and prepare for a kick-ass future. Take back control over your life’s direction, knowing that everything begins and ends with you, Pisces. Your thoughts are powerful, and your feelings matter. An insensitive comment may hurt your feelings, but you’ll soon realise that there’s nothing more to the remark than a temporary case of foot in mouth disease. Let it go. By month’s end, Jupiter’s journey through your sign is like having a guardian angel guide you into the new year.
