Get ready for some crazy zany holiday antics happening this December! The Full Moon in Gemini on the third is urging us to speak the truth about something we have been talking from both sides of our mouths about for some time now, but on that same day Mercury (planet of communication) goes retrograde and urges us to keep a lid on it because someone will without a doubt be offended somehow. The best way to deal with these conflicting energies is to live by the Golden Rule and pick your battles carefully. That’s what I’m going to do! That Mercury Retrograde goes from the 3rd to the 22nd so tread lightly through that time and let us not forget a great rule of thumb is to consider ten days before and after a retrograde. Dang! You still have to live your life. So knowledge is key in order to work with the cosmic flow so you don’t find yourself discouraged from getting knocked down by it. Have back up plans. Mercury Retrogrades can be a beautiful time for reunions and catching and making up with others that we were on the outs with for a bit. On the 18th there is a New moon in Sagittarius, which is a great time to have some light-hearted fun with new friends who just wanna laugh and cut up a bit.
King of Cups is coming in for most signs. This makes me think that maybe we need to be especially sensitive with how we are speaking and walking our Truths. Not that one should extinguish their personalities so others are more comfortable and tolerant, but more so that we are civil and compassionate of others stories as well. It would be wise to be especially vigilant during emotionally charged discussions.
As always, consider your Moon and Rising sign in addition to your Sun. What comes through for each sign is general. If you wish to have a more personalized reading, please hit my name in the sidebar which should take you to my Etsy shop or message me on my FB page Tarot By Tonyana.
Let’s hop into the December Scopes!
SAGITTARIUS ( November 22- December 21)
Week 1: Since Mercury is retrograde in your sign, it will affect you more than others. Therefore hold off an a big purchase. Instead, it may be wise to start accumulating money for things that are important to you. Make it a game of how much you can save for a year.
Week 2: It is totally okay to treat yourself to something that will take the edge off of this week. You need to put up that Do Not Disturb sign and get away from the hustle and bustle for a bit. Someone intriguing will enter your circle, but they won’t be around forever, so enjoy it while it lasts.
Week 3: You bend over backwards to spend time with someone who is only around for the holidays, early January, at latest. Work seems to demand more and more. Compare where you are in your career with where you were last year at this time to gain a more grateful perspective. Some may find their Christmas bonus to be a bit skimpy. Have an attitude of gratitude, there are many who never get any kind of bonus at all. If you stick around, you will find that everything you believe is lacking will be made up and then some by next year!
Week 4: It may be wise to let an opportunity pass you by, since the timing isn’t altogether right. Progress may be delayed a bit. It is okay to consider a new project and partners to get things off the ground, just hold off on big moves this week. You may find that you have a cooler head later about it.
CAPRICORN (December 22- January 19)
Week 1: Do realize that most of what you hear through the grapevine this week is severely distorted. Lies may be told in an effort to manipulate your decision about something. The way you do your job may get a complete makeover. Just use common sense and take all these “new innovative” ways with a grain of salt. Even though a new system may be forced upon you, try your best to stay professional about your disdain.
Week 2: Some will accuse you of being unreliable, but you protest that you are merely just trying to be more spontaneous and open to opportunity. You may experience twinges of pain for no real reason at all and “catch headaches” and other maladies from others. It may be especially hard to sleep because you feel caught up in dreams and nightmares that don’t even feel like they are yours. This may all be because your empathy skills are gaining much ground, very fast.
Week 3: You may decide to contribute a bit to a fundraiser of some kind. Those who attend church may put a little extra in the tithing plate. It is almost like the more you demonstrate that you care for others by putting your money where your mouth is, the more Truths are revealed to you. Colors are becoming especially vibrant. You start seeing the world in a completely different way.
Week 4: There is a warning to stay vigilant about sun block. Maybe it is your body chemistry or maybe certain meds are making you especially sensitive, but it is best to be careful not to catch a ton of rays. Put lil reminders around to reapply sun block or to wear a cap and long sleeves, etc. I just get the sense that if you make yourself vulnerable, you will burn. I may be being too literal with the sunblock thing. It could simply mean not to put yourself in precarious situations and make yourself a target somehow. Think before you leap. I also get the sense that someone is watching every move you make and arriving to conclusions based on your actions… or inactions.
AQUARIUS (January 20- February 18)
Week 1: You have some brilliant ideas, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that you are the one to actually execute these things. Some of you are becoming quite the pinnacle of the community. You have so much going on out there in the world, don’t forget to nurture your relationship too. They just want to see you happy, but want to be by your side… not some afterthought.
Week 2: Some of you really need to curb the tendency to celebrate with food all the time. Maybe treat yourself to some live music instead of a dinner out once in a while. I feel like this change will really liven up your romantic life too. So get out there and socialize. If you haven’t a main squeeze, you are likely to find one this week. Just realize that things started now may turn out to be temporary. Besides all that, getting to know new people without a lot of expectations riding on it can be mighty refreshing. Reunite with an old friend or loved one. You really ought not put it off for very much longer.
Week 3: Someone is stressing you the hell out! Their horrible mood just puts your spirits in a funk. You try so hard to remain professional while they shoot down all your awesome ideas.
Week 4: You may find that people are willing to pay for your expertise and will seek you out. Go ahead and treat yourself to a lot of nice things since you can expect the Universe to keep supplying you with clients and income. Also, look into doing a bit of investing. It may be wise to talk to a financial adviser about hot stocks and where else to invest. Others may invest in a safety deposit box. I feel like quality is of utmost importance. Get more physically active.
PISCES (February 19- March 20)
Week 1: Someone who likely lives a distance away wants to reconnect and may invite you to visit with them. It sounds enticing enough, but you would be wise to take a raincheck for now. In fact, maybe put travel plans on hold till next month.
Week 2: Time to dig into some of that rainy day money. Don’t kick yourself or your partner. Sometimes things just happen no matter how diligent we are. Don’t allow a hiccup to discourage you.
Week 3: Make sure to go around and replace all the batteries in the smoke detectors and do responsible things like that to make yourself feel safe. A Sagittarius type will have you questioning whether they really have your best interest at heart or not. They may wind up being bad for business because they take your head out of the game. Definitely don’t get wrapped up in any contracts with this individual.
Week 4: Some of you may decide to take up a new class or a new learning facility. This is fine and good as long as it is a certification type thing that doesn’t require a lot of time. Also, you may decide to board an animal or do a bit of pet-sitting. You find that your personal beliefs and “path” may be changing a bit because now you see things from a totally new perspective.
ARIES ( March 21- April 19)
Week 1: Someone is keeping something from you and it gets you entertaining worst case scenario options. It really isn’t as bad as it seems. In fact, when the truth comes to light you will seem awful silly for thinking the worst. Money isn’t going as well as you thought, so you would be wise to budget a bit better. Maybe not splurge so much on gifts this year. It is okay to buy for those that you have an understanding with, but there are others who feel a bit awkward when they haven’t something to give you in return. Maybe instead of gifts, try reaching out with a message or plan an outing together instead.
Week 2: Some of you may be doing quite crafty things this week. You will work especially hard on a sentimental gift to give to your romantic partner. Also, bring some fresh flowers into your home. Be cautious of poinsettias and the like if you have little ones or critters. Although beautiful flowers, they can be quite deadly.
Week 3: Money is back to being a nice steady flow. Actually, it is coming in quicker and more bountifully than expected. So now that finances aren’t so much a concern, your attention turns to something else to worry about.
Week 4: It is saying again for you not to be a big spender. Small gestures of appreciation are perfectly fine. Also, allow others to treat you this time.
TAURUS (April 20- May 20)
Week 1: Many Bulls will be taking on seasonal work this month to make some extra scratch. While you are chasing that dollar, make sure you keep up with the things that need doing around your home. It will seem like a balancing act. Remember that your headspace is so much calmer when your home is tidy.
Week 2: Your life seems to be mighty overwhelming this week. It may help to research different cultures and countries that speak to you on a spiritual level. You just seem to have a lot on your plate right now. If you can’t actually travel far away, you can at least daydream about it.
Week 3: You would be wise to get a leg up on getting some financial paperwork in order. Try to stay the course in work matters. A bit of extra money received will make it much easier. Someone will offer you a great deal. By pointing another to a lucrative idea, you will profit too… sort of like a finder’s fee.
Week 4: Now you are going to have to start thinking about how you can keep a steady flow of income going into the next year and beyond. You may hate me for saying so, but you really ought to make paying off debt more of a priority. Wearing pretty things may improve your appearance, but having your shit together will give you more confidence, and that’s sexy baby!
GEMINI (May 21- June 20)
Week 1: Your love life could be better, but you have faith that everything will work itself out in due time. Absolutely correct! The two of you will be cooing away at each other in no time. And those who are singled, that is likely to change soon enough.
Week 2: This week promises to be a very positive one. You wholeheartedly feel like someone has your back. And you also have this strange feeling like everyone actually has your best interest at heart. How lovely!
Week 3: Things get a bit rocky socially when you discover that someone you are thick as thieves with doesn’t necessarily hold the strong opinions you do. These differences are no big deal unless you make a mountain out of a molehill. If you hold onto resentment from this misunderstanding, it may make you vulnerable to a virus that is going around. So get over it and be happy. Don’t literally let someone else’s opinions make you sick.
Week 4: Some of you may be experiencing a nasty side effect of some medication, while others may visit with a doctor and be told that surgery may be something to consider. It may behoove you to get a second opinion on both counts. Something happened a while back that you never completely recovered from. The timing is right for some healing to take place, but you need to know you are in good hands. Your ambition and work may be an obstacle to your taking a time out.
CANCER (June 21- July 22)
Week 1: You may go to a holiday function where you are actually encouraged to sing Christmas Carols! No one can give you grief about catching the spirit now, because it is socially acceptable in December. Get with other people who love to watch cheesy holiday movies and have no shame in your game.
Week 2: It would be in bad form to reject a favor from someone because later you may kick yourself for not taking the offer when you had the chance. You may not accept it because you hate to feel indebted in any way. What makes you think there are strings attached?
Week 3: Make sure you are entirely truthful, because this week, more than any other, you are likely to get caught. Even a little white lie told to spare feelings can land you in hot water. Much of this energy will involve your work life. Be very adaptable and fair when discussing things around the water cooler. Also, make sure that you don’t make assumptions about others.
Week 4: An ex may reach out in hopes of connecting in some way. This may be very confusing for you since your attention has been on another for quite some time now. Take your mind off romantic stuff and get lost in work so you can come back to what is being asked of you with a clear head. For those who are single looking to mingle, you may meet an especially wealthy partner this week. There is a warning to be careful, there’s a lot you don’t know about this individual.
LEO ( July 23- August 22)
Week 1: An Aries personality who is confident (maybe to a fault) will take up much of your mind space this week. You like them, maybe even love them, you just can’t get over how they can seem so damn self-centered sometimes. They are losing their patience with you.
Week 2: The timing simply isn’t right and you may find that Mercury Retrograde is kicking your butt. While you are waiting for things to get going, distract yourself by cleaning and organizing. Don’t try to force things. If you push your weight around, you will get dealt with.
Week 3: You may be waiting patiently for packages to make it on time. While others of you may be distributing those goods to people who are relying on you to get the order exactly right. There is talk about quotas having to be met at work. What you put out is being measured and discussed by others. There is nothing that irks you more than someone breathing down your neck.
Week 4: Finally! All your efforts have added up to something. Money can be very rewarding right now. Good for you!
VIRGO (August 23- September 22)
Week 1: Sometimes you feel like your emotional state is sabotaging your life. Often you feel like such an outsider and find it hard to keep the pace with others. This week try to be more of a team player and help others to get ahead. Your time in the sun will come later on this month.
Week 2: Some of you may be researching other avenues for bringing in money. While others of you may be doing a bit of flirting, it would be unwise to jump into anything. The object of your affection really isn’t interested in any type of commitment.
Week 3: Rapport with children is easy and fun. I feel like you learn something from a child about rolling with the punches of life and not getting discouraged. Time spent with kids will help you focus on what is really important.
Week 4: Instead of getting all stressed out, you decide instead to ride the wave of life. Take a moment to really consider how 2017 was for you. How much progress have you made with becoming the person you always wanted to be? More importantly, do you love yourself? Who do you know loves you? Do some sort of creative project to commemorate 2017 and ring in 2018. Make a pact with yourself that next year, you won’t waste a single day.
LIBRA (September 23- October 22)
Week 1: You had it on easy street last month, in December you may find yourself having to be more vigilant about healthy boundaries. This month will have you so busy, it will be hard to keep track of where you are supposed to be and when. You have really come far in the last year. Make sure you don’t allow yourself to be taken advantage of. If you look back 10 years ago, you may be amazed at the progress you have made.
Week 2: You have grown so much spiritually that those with deep emotional wounds are naturally drawn to you. While you are taking in everyone’s problems, don’t neglect an exercise routine. In fact, insist that if they want to unload their issues on you they will have to tell you along a walking trail. They really would be lost without you and there are so many others that would agree. There’s no doubt that you are a light in people’s lives, but is it mutual? If all anyone does is bring you down, it may be time to reconsider the company you keep. Some peeps are just going through a tough patch while others are eternal “victims.” Since it is Mercury Retrograde it may be unwise to kick anyone to the curb just yet (they will invariably come back!) — instead, just reassess the situation a bit.
Week 3: Some of you may have procrastinated so long that you are taking a gamble on Amazon Prime and the like to finally get your shopping completed. It sounds quick enough and usually is, but this time it will likely be met with snags. Let this be a lesson to you! After you get that out of the way, make time to wind down and meditate so you don’t stay in stress mode.
Week 4: You may find yourself saying quick prayers and checking into Self a lot this week. There is lots of anxiety because of information coming in so thick and fast. Many of you will be researching a spiritual path that you weren’t raised with.
SCORPIO (October 23- November 21)
Week 1: Many of you are only now thinking about gifts and getting into the holiday spirit. You kind of just want to have a dinner and celebration of some sort minus the gifts. Oh wait, that was last month… Thanksgiving! Chances are, others feel the same way and maybe you can get them on board with a tradition that is more your speed.
Week 2: Plan in advance for delays, hiccups, and plan b, c, and d going into effect. Be careful, because a physical injury is likely if you aren’t aware of your surroundings. Emotionally, you may have to check out every once in a while in order to not do anything too rash. Go for a walk, get some fresh air, chill out. You expect others to be on your level, but that is highly unlikely. It doesn’t mean that you have to be around these people your entire life. At least accept their existence and make it appear that you are tolerating them just fine.
Week 3: You may have rallied a few other sweet souls together and decided to make charity and volunteerism a part of your holiday tradition. This will change your whole outlook about this time of year. Some of you wish that a special someone would show up too. An otherwise elusive family member will become an awesome ally and a bit of a sidekick.
Week 4: There may have been plans for a New Year’s Eve Bash that you are seriously considering backing out of. You are fairly certain that the one you really want to ring in the New Year with will not be in attendance anyway, so you feel okay with staying in. It is irritating to be in such a position where someone isn’t falling all over themselves to get to you. If you did see the person your heart beats for, you would probably want to wring their neck first anyways, so maybe it is better this way. Relationship stuff can be pretty tough this week, coupled or not.
