December 2014 Astrology Forecast

The day-by-day astrology forecast for December 2014

December 1: Many folks wake up feeling good. Lunar trines to Mercury and the Sun animate early birds, quicken the senses and build self-confidence. Ambitions can put a daring gleam in the eye. Plans are realistic, timing is good. Resolve is strengthened via a mid-afternoon sextile angle between Mars and Saturn. Try to address pressing concerns as well as long range needs before then. The late afternoon hours see the Aries Moon sparking another energetic upsurge. Unfortunately, the same energies can also set things to spinning chaotically off course. Let go and flow with the currents, but proceed cautiously. In the end, changes turn out to be for the better.

December 2: Once again we are treated to splendid morning influences as the Aries Moon, Venus and Jupiter form a brilliant, brightening alignment overhead. This fire sign Grand Trine boosts spirits and raises optimism. It also fosters loving relationships. Spread your optimism around liberally. Lay it on thick with smiles, generosity and encouraging words. Challenges arrive later in the day. The Moon is testing feisty Mars and impulsive words and actions can quickly cause trouble. Watch your tongue. Slow down during the evening commute. More restful trends arrive well before midnight, making sleep welcome.

December 3: The waxing Moon enters Taurus just after midnight, providing a calming effect that lasts throughout the day. A soothing late morning lunar angle with Neptune inspires good dreaming, pleasing reveries and artistic productivity. Take note of all bright ideas, storing away some for future reference if it's not possible to act upon them now. As dusk falls the Moon is reaching another auspicious aspect, this time with crafty Pluto. The alignment favors savvy investors, bargain hunting shoppers and also investigators seeking to understand life's secret meaning. Be a keen observer. A gut hunch may be instructive. Partnerships can blossom unexpectedly with the increased sensitivity and awareness.

December 4: Indomitable and irresistible good cheer permeates all that is said or done today. Almost everyone takes a turn at being an optimist. Positive outlooks are a product of Venus' trine with Jupiter and the Sun's trine to Uranus. Hearts are open and affectionate. Minds are incredibly agile, and attitudes may change in the blink of an eye. Meetings are boisterous fun. Team spirit is bolstered this evening when fiery Mars arrives in Aquarius, the sign of sister and brotherhood. The physical and mental demands of this active and serendipitous time can take a toll, especially this evening. Save some strength for tomorrow. Don't burn your candle at both ends.

December 5: The nearly full, waxing Moon enters versatile Gemini shortly before daybreak. Luna promptly lights a fuse under this highly energized day. We're off and running! Mental Mercury is in a fabulous trine alignment with psychic Uranus. Hunches flash into minds with the clear brilliance of lightning bolts and may come in bunches. There is some added risk of a miscalculation during the early afternoon. Take a little extra time to double-check documents, meeting times and other arrangements. Be attentive to handbags, briefcases, wallets and other irreplaceable items. Tonight's atmosphere is electrifying. Join with adventurous friends and other like-minded folks for uproarious good times under the plentiful moonlight.
Moon in Taurus v/c 1:45AM-5:28AM Moon enters Gemini, Mercury trine Uranus.

December 6: Because excitement levels are elevated by the early morning Full "Cold" Moon in Gemini, a truly restful night may be hard to come by. Early risers can't help but notice the madcap energy. Try to relax. The Moon is exactly full at 7:27AM EST, so the ensuing daylight hours unfold with a little less pressure and urgency. However, the "buzz" definitely lingers. Being on the go, tending to household chores, holiday shopping, and staying in touch with friends and relatives is rather effortless and even enjoyable. A celebratory atmosphere dominates tonight. Theatrical performances put adoring audiences in stitches. Don't be a wallflower. Join in the party and have fun!

December 7: After yesterday's laughs and high drama, this morning is extremely quiet. The Moon tests Venus before dawn and then is void of course in Gemini until shortly after midday. Relax your senses, let your mind wander into soft focus. It's a perfect time to take a breather. After noon is different. The Moon arrives in Cancer, motivating a new round of activities, particularly those relating to home, family and the closest of friends. Conversation tends to be plain spoken and honest. Notes of romanticism are felt tonight when the Moon is aligned with Neptune. Idealism also gets a boost. See the best in others and magical things can happen.
Moon in Gemini v/c 4:52AM-12:34PM Moon enters Cancer.

December 8: Tensions increase worldwide over the coming week. Uranus and Pluto are again nearing an exact square, testing personal values, societal rules and the dictates of religious and political leaders. The chaotic forces in play evoke deep responses. Today's Cancer Moon is at odds with both warring stars, notably during the noon hour. Loyalties can be sorely tested. Taking unilateral action and entering uncharted territory may be necessary. On a more personal note, lay off spicy foods as stomachs are also sensitized. Philosophical Jupiter begins a lengthy retrograde this afternoon. Bosses can be expected to reverse position on at least one significant policy issue. Breathe, be patient and let things develop. More changes are on the way.

December 9: Calm skies prevail. The waning Cancer Moon is gliding into a satisfying trine aspect with Saturn. The angle dominates the day and helps those taking care of business do a good job. As always when Saturn is in play, slow and steady is the preferred approach. Diligence is truly satisfying, as are loyal ties. Decisions are well thought out. A celestial respite this evening offers a chance to unwind gracefully. The Moon slips into playful Leo late tonight. Children of all ages feel renewed as midnight nears.
Moon in Cancer v/c 7:14PM-10:14PM Moon enters Leo.

December 10: The early morning going can be frustrating. If possible, allow extra time for the morning commute. The Leo Moon is testing excitable Mars and progress is rarely as swift as one might like under these auspices. Be careful with sharp tools and around machinery. Venus settles into earthy Capricorn just before midday, leading holiday shoppers to think about buying practical, better quality gifts. The late afternoon and evening hours see more exhilarating trends develop. After work, social gatherings are a whirlwind of fun. Don't be timid, drop what you're doing, change plans and join the fun. Spontaneity rules!
Moon in Leo, Venus enters Capricorn.

December 11: Good vibes bubble up throughout this fast-moving, scintillating day. Playful, childlike innocence is reclaimed. Enormous hopes and big ideas permeate hearts and minds. Lavish praise and compliments flow liberally. The fiery Leo Moon, aligned with optimistic Jupiter, is also in harmony with the Sagittarius Sun and Mercury. Business meetings and planning sessions follow a positive track. The world seems rosy, as though anything is possible. Creativity is inspired. Travel is facilitated. Be brave and follow your heart. Evening conversations are long-winded but educational, if you listen carefully.
Moon in Leo.

December 12: Try to maintain a balanced, fair-minded view of ideas and events. Mixed signals from the Cosmos could lead to some precarious moments if care is not taken. An early morning trine between mental Mercury and Jupiter can lead some folks to over estimate potential gains or under estimate the time and energy required to finish a job. At the same time a lunar square with Saturn is a reminder that anything of quality requires time to incubate and be perfected before it is fashioned into something of lasting value. By late morning the Moon reaches Virgo where she finds balance with loving Venus in Capricorn. The two stars confer an enjoyably productive afternoon. Relationships with co-workers are especially good. Relax this evening. Get cozy. Let your imagination outrun your worries. That may be easily accomplished by watching a film, listening to music or gazing into the heavens above.
Moon in Leo v/c 7:48AM-10:19AM Moon enters Virgo, Mercury trine Jupiter.

December 13: Get busy with seasonal preparations. The Virgo Moon abides by the notion that everything has its proper, most efficient to use place. Put your house in order. Dust, clean and polish. Catch up on errands, chores and paperwork. An intuition boosting lunar trine to Pluto is a good omen for bargain hunters. Do your homework, comparison shop before buying any costly presents or personal items. Curiosity is also piqued. Motives could become clearer or a secret may be revealed. With another exact Uranus/Pluto square just two days away, having alternative plans ready for surprise scenarios can transform an apparent setback into cause for celebration.

December 14: Luckily, the stresses of the Last Quarter Virgo Moon are over and done with during the early morning. For early birds, managing a multitude of responsibilities can be daunting. As the morning progresses, fantastically upbeat celestial influences lift all spirits. Whether you choose to stay in and relax at home, go out to shop or attend a gathering, moods are exuberant. Even souls facing extraordinary challenges are well aware of their blessings. For those who have much, this is a fabulous time to share with those less fortunate. Be sure to hold clear intentions this afternoon when the Moon is at odds with mental Mercury. The offer of advice or a helping hand could be rebuffed if not extended with sensitivity to another's pride.

December 15: Earth shaking events are once again likely to be making headlines. The sixth Uranus/Pluto square of the past few years is exact during the wee hours of the morning. The aspect highlights the disparity between a small number of wealthy power brokers and the billions of less well off inhabitants of Planet Earth. Because of chaotic events, changing weather patterns, lost fortunes and various forms of ideological extremism, this historically destabilizing alignment also serves to hasten evolutionary leaps of consciousness, technological advances and shifting political allegiances. Today's Libra Moon favors walking a more peaceful path, offering tokens of affection and forging new alliances. Nighttime tensions may necessitate a shift in strategy, especially if a partner is being unreasonable.

December 16: Midnight tensions gradually ease through the remaining morning hours. Sleep may have been fitful for some folks, due to relationship and financial uncertainties. Remember, we can only control our own behavior. Make the best of situations not of your own making or choosing. This will become progressively easier as the day plays out. By nightfall the Libra Moon is nearing a cheerful sextile to Jupiter. Moods improve. Silver linings at last appear. Frank talk with good pals is refreshing. Positive thinking takes on a pragmatic element late tonight as mental Mercury arrives in results oriented Capricorn.
Moon in Libra, Mercury enters Capricorn.

December 17: The day's sluggish start is due to the waning Moon's void of course status. By late morning a shift occurs. Focus and intensity return with the Moon's entry into Scorpio. Senses sharpen, energy picks up. Magical thinking is fashionably elegant after noon. A lunar trine alignment with Neptune encourages dreamers, mystics and artists. These two stars also encourage kind and charitable acts. Many folks will enjoy a romantic escape or after work get together. A candlelit dinner is in order! Some lucky night owls will find blissful, loving vibrations continuing unabated long past midnight.
Moon in Libra v/c 12:40AM-9:52AM Moon enters Scorpio.

December 18: The predawn hours have some vexing moments. The Scorpio Moon tests Mars, hindering progress and possibly throwing early risers off course. A restorative mid-morning lunar sextile to Pluto sets things back onto a more productive and steady track. This is a good period for a confab with trusted advisors and co-workers. Momentum gradually slows as the day progresses. We are late in the lunar cycle and with the waning Moon's darkening comes lower energy levels and time for reflection. Concentrate on tasks already in motion and let new projects lie until more supportive trends return.
Moon in Scorpio.

December 19: The working week closes with the Scorpio Moon in a conjunction with Saturn. The Ringed Planet soon (this coming Tuesday, the 23rd) spins on into Sagittarius so this particular alignment will not repeat for some time. With Saturn justifiably called the planet of endings, it is a particularly fitting reminder to finish as much work as possible while on a more emotional level, forgive, forget and move on. Consolidate and simplify so as to be better prepared for this coming weekend's surprising developments. Just after dark, the Moon enters Sagittarius and an eerie calm descends. Memories are poignant reminders of times and people gone by as midnight bells toll.
Moon in Scorpio, v/c 4:11PM-4:55PM Moon enters Sagittarius.

December 20: Loving Venus gets top billing in today's forecast. The Goddess of Love, Beauty and Affection is conjunct Pluto and in square to Uranus. Relations are volatile and may feel quite strained. The emotional tapestry is rich with soaring highs, as well as great uncertainties. No matter how deeply and truly one loves, risks are involved. While love can be a consuming passion, if you feel insecure don't put yourself in a risky spot. Talking with friends can be helpful. Seeing awkward or hostile situations in a more impersonal and reasoned light is a key step in avoiding them entirely. Holiday parties are in full swing tonight. Dress up for the occasion and have fun!

December 21: Today begins with an early morning trine between the Sagittarius Moon and optimistic Jupiter. This is a fine omen, one of good things to come. However, the Moon then begins a lengthy void of course period, lasting until well after sunset. It is during the early evening that Uranus, the planet of surprises, resumes forward motion. The direction shift may occasion epiphanies, one or more major geophysical events and perhaps a notable political uprising. A few minutes later, at 6:03PM EST, the Sun enters Capricorn and winter officially begins. For Sun worshippers, the tide soon turns as the daily minutes of sunlight now begin to grow. Be sure to get a few minutes of sun on your face and welcome the returning light. Finally this evening, there's a New Moon in Capricorn, marking the start of a new activity cycle. Set your intentions for the coming fortnight. Happy Solstice!

December 22: Five of the ten planets are ensconced in Capricorn today. Four of the five are in a testing angle with Uranus, the planet of revolutionary movements and individual liberties. It may dawn on some folks that the end of a certain life chapter is at hand. Others will find themselves wholeheartedly devoted to their work and the life they have created. In either case, emotional attachments are intensely felt. The drive to succeed is paramount. Keep this in mind while navigating today's tasks. Respect the path you have chosen and show the same respect for other peoples' choices, even if they leave you scratching your head in wonder. Direct, heart to heart talk strengthens ties tonight.
Moon in Capricorn v/c 10:17PM-12:00AM.

December 23: The Moon in Capricorn travels void of course for almost the entire day. As is typical, we can expect wavering powers of concentration and sagging energy levels. The atmosphere is a "go with the flow, one foot after the other" at best. Save major decisions and big ticket expenditures for another day. Another reason for pause is Saturn's change of signs. Having been in Scorpio for more than two years, the Lord of Karma enters Sagittarius shortly before noon. Here Saturn initiates an examination of beliefs and whether the path we are walking truthfully reflects those beliefs. The next few days promise to be a time of interesting encounters leading to self-discovery and shifting attitudes.
Moon in Capricorn v/c 12:00AM-9:52PM Moon enters Aquarius, Saturn enters Sagittarius.

December 24: Quite often the planets line up in such ways as to present simultaneous, conflicting options. Today the visionary Aquarius Moon forms a sextile to Uranus, the planet of pure intuition. For some, the future may be as easy to read as a wide open freeway. In stark contrast, Mercury, the planet of rational thinking, is at odds with Uranus. It's perfectly natural to question one's direction, intuitive guidance, specific rules, authority figures and just about anything else. Which route you travel depends on where you focus attention. Listening to the small voice within and following its guidance takes practice and sometimes, steel nerves. I suggest you stay mellow, follow your gut hunches and leave the second-guessing to others.
Moon in Aquarius, Mercury square Uranus.

December 25: To those of you celebrating Christmas, Happy Holiday! Visions of the perfect gift and other goodies loom large this morning as the Aquarius Moon opposes extravagantly generous Jupiter. Little ones positively jump for joy and old timers can't help but smile. Happiness is rampant. A void of course Moon period takes hold before noon and lasts until late tonight. As a result, most get togethers are relaxed affairs but stay alert and do whatever you can to avoid polarizing misunderstandings. Fatigue sets in early tonight as the Moon, newly arrived in sensitive Pisces, is also square to somber Saturn. Don't overdo it, and be sure to get adequate rest.
Moon in Aquarius v/c 10:11AM-11:07PM Moon enters Pisces, Mercury conjunct Pluto.

December 26: Dawn feels mellow due to the Pisces Moon's conjunction with mystical, "soft focus" Neptune. Greet the new morning with quiet appreciation of life's miracles. The hours continue to have an otherworldly feel as both stars are also harmonizing with the Capricorn Sun. A lazy, meandering day off is delicious enjoyment but more motivated sorts will find thrills out in Nature, at art galleries and museums, hanging out with loved ones or creating new masterpieces in the kitchen. More than one heart will be mended and made stronger today by way of kindness or a thoughtful word.
Moon in Pisces, Sun sextile Neptune.

December 27: The morning hours are best for taking care of chores and attending to personal matters. It's a fine time to purchase clothing or items that beautify the home. These hours also foster fondness and affection. Let your sweetheart or good friend know how much you really care! A small token of your appreciation could provide a huge boost to a flagging spirit. By noon the Pisces Moon is flying void of course. Imaginations run wild but physical bodies may feel lethargic. If circumstances allow, indulge in your whims and fancies, but avoid heavy lifting. Be content with an improvisational approach; just make it up, free and easy as your go along.
Moon in Pisces 10:44AM-12:00AM.

December 28: This morning the Aries Moon can spur impulsive risk taking. Some go it alone impulses may actually be healthy, a much needed ego boost. As noon approaches the Moon nears the volatile First Quarter phase, squaring the Capricorn Sun. That independent streak may suddenly turn into a liability. Naysayers have valid concerns and the Moon's approaching nighttime conjunction with accident prone Uranus is an excellent reason to proceed with caution. Look before you leap, spend a bundle, or set off to climb any craggy mountain peaks. Feelings are on a razor's edge until midnight. Give yourself as well as partners permission to have a change of mind as Uranus is also notoriously fickle.
Moon in Pisces v/c 12:00AM-1:35AM Moon enters Aries, First Quarter Moon in Aries 1:31PM.

December 29: The week gets off to a swift start. A high octane sextile between the Aries Moon and Mars dispels any leftover holiday sluggishness. This morning could be the time a decision that has been weighing in the balance is finally made. If you, dear reader, are facing a momentous choice, be sure to include past experiences in your calculations. The afternoon continues to feel busy. The stars support multi-tasking, but also shine special emphasis on the art of communication. Be in touch with friends, family and business associates. Cheerful good news is likely to brighten many conversations. Tonight features a relaxing void of course Moon period, a perfect omen for a suit your self slowdown.
Moon in Aries v/c 7:46PM-12:00AM.

December 30: Winter's deep stillness is apparent during the nighttime and early morning hours. As dawn breaks the Moon slips into earthy Taurus. Kind and gentle trends carry us through this day. A mid-afternoon lunar sextile to Neptune is comforting. The alignment adds spiritual awareness to even the most mundane activities. Those who champion a cause feel elevated by their commitment. Artistic souls also do inspired work. Lunar harmony with the Capricorn Sun dominates today's later hours. The trine angle between astrology's "lights" integrates the inner and outer parts of ourselves and is good for business and relationships. Appreciate what you have. Be grateful, and generous in sharing your bounty, however large or small.
Moon in Aries v/c 12:00AM-5:56AM Moon enters Taurus.

December 31: Another year has passed and the time has come to bid 2014 adieu. But first, there are today's astrological indicators to consider. This final day of the year sees the waxing Moon cruising through Taurus, one of the most sensual signs of the Zodiac. Dark chocolate or milk, everyone has a favorite. The key today is in savoring those people, places, tastes and experiences that bring maximum sensory pleasure and comfort. Partake of favorite foods. Listen to your favorite music. Hang out with your favorite people. Doing so will better help you tune out this evening's impassioned differences of opinion. As midnight nears, hearts grow calmer and cool reason returns, just in time to usher in 2015 and say Happy New Year!
