December 2023

Aries (March 20 – April 20)

You have a drill sergeant hiding inside your head that seems to be holding you back. In order to come into your own, you have to break the mould set out for you. As you go through life, you adjust your philosophies to your situation and the people who surround you. It’s not like you are going to publish a magazine and send it out to those around you. You might also look to make adjustments around your spending habits, as difficult as it could be for such an impulsive person. Maybe that sergeant’s voice is your voice of reason, trying to knock some sense into you.

THEME OF THE YEAR, You can get it if you put your mind to it, not your horns.

Taurus (April 20 – May 21)

You are probably worrying about things this month partly because of financial concerns. They always say to count your blessings because you might probably have more than you need. What you need just might not all be material things at all. And what you don’t have, you can borrow from a friend, but only if you give it back in due time. Another word of advice for December: don’t focus on the past. Our past experiences form us, but we cannot dwell on those events. You are supposed to have learned from them so you can make better decisions in the future.

THEME OF THE YEAR, Don’t be afraid of revolutionary things. Change will amplify your life.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

Relationships might be a bit confusing and can take up some of your concentration. Your emotions may get the better of you, causing you to be angry and lose your cool. That is why you need to take a moment to plan out what you want to accomplish this month. Having a goal will allow you to focus and direct your energy into more fruitful endeavours. Not everyone is out to get you. Sometimes, people have their own agenda, which doesn’t correlate with yours. Learn to accept that, and then the energy of conflict will turn into that of cooperation.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Don’t be afraid of revolutionary things. Change will amplify your life.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Look for inspiration to come to you from strange and foreign lands. Blending ideas from other parts of the world will motivate you to alter your ego to accept new concepts. It could quite possibly change you for the better. Wisdom doesn’t come from repeating the same old patterns. This month, break free from the shell you have wrapped yourself in. Try not to be shy and talk to a stranger. Who knows, you could make a new friend. Just be cautious when dealing with people on the job. Walk away and take a deep breath to avoid unnecessary confrontations.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Goals are achievable if you work with others to accomplish them.

Did you know:

Neptune tells you what you are disillusioned about and what inspires you?

Leo (July 22 – August 23)

You will have confrontational energy this month if you choose to use it that way. With a more positive outlook, you will have a lot of get up and go, inspiring others to join you on your quest. Who knows where you can go with others? Life is a journey about learning at every step of the way. Self-reflection is good, but don’t stop to stare in the mirror all day. Bringing others to the mirror will help you better understand them and yourself as well. Use that opportunity. It might help with the insecurity you may be feeling and get you out of a bad mood.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Nothing happens without putting some effort into it. People will notice.

Virgo (August 23 – September 23)

Wanting what other people have can make you feel like you are insufficient. Life is not about keeping up with the Joneses. It doesn’t help you and could make you purchase things or get into relationships that don’t benefit you. Go after what is important to you. What you need to work out this month is who you are. It is an inner struggle between who you are to others and who you are to yourself. Think outside the box and avoid limiting yourself based on past behaviours. Life is based on trial and error, and to err is not bad as long as you learn and grow.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Be creative in all facets of life to enhance your life mission.

Libra (September 23 – October 23)

You have the opportunity to morph into something you want to be. However, my advice is to be yourself, but that doesn’t mean you cannot make improvements. You should make an effort to plan things out instead of jumping into things but do make a decision. Watch not to overthink things, as you will never get moving. On another note, let familial bygones be bygones. What has happened, happened. Maybe this is driving the change to get everyone else changing along with you. Use this opportunity to move forward to enhance all aspects of your life.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Your heart will lead you through the transition to your true self.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

While we really cannot predict the future, you will have a better pulse on things than most of us. If there is a time to start planning or just going for what you want in life, this is the time to do it. The combination of will and foresight will be a powerful tool in your tool chest of skills. The only setback will be the freedom to do what you want and when because you are going to devote yourself to your cause. Try not to cut off your nose to spite your face regarding relationships. You will be a bit of a hotshot at work, so make the most of it. Routines will be important.

THEME OF THE YEAR , If you don’t say what you mean, then others will not know what you mean.

Did you know:

there are different astrological systems, but all are based on the relationship of the planets?

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You will have a lot of energy and need to burn it off with exercise. The other option is work. While work isn’t as much fun as exercise [opinions may differ], work would be an excellent way to grow and advance. Don’t think short term. Put 100% effort into all your endeavours because it will pay off in the long run. You desire change, but make it happen in a disciplined manner. Sudden impulsive changes may seem cool in the moment. However, you run the risk of regretting your actions later on. Keep your mouth in neutral and look for opportune moments to put it in gear.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Let it go if something is not worth it. Only go after things of value.

Capricorn (December 21 – January 20)

You seem to be fighting yourself at every turn. Stop to think about why you are doing that. Is there an issue with your self-confidence? You tend to be an organised individual, so most of your matters should be in order. Maybe you’re holding on to old baggage, but those should be more of a lessons-learned scenario than an anchor. Call up some close friends and go for a night out every once in a while. Make sure it is casual and not an organised affair. It will also allow you to bounce ideas off and get things off your chest. You are not made of stone.

THEME OF THE YEAR , You must make personal growth changes to embrace your creative talents.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Not many people are reading books as much as they used to. Aquarians are typically rebels, so pick up a book and start some reading to get away from all the tech going on these days. Also, it will give you the alone time you need. You will find that you will be refreshed. Being refreshed will provide you with the energy to focus on achieving your dreams. If you don’t dream, then you have nothing to strive for. Sure, everyone wants a mansion and yacht but set reasonable goals for yourself and chip away at the stone to carve the future you want.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Home is where the heart is, so a stable home is a foundation for growth.

Pisces (February 18 – March 20)

You will have better control of your boundaries this month. Letting people walk all over you because you don’t want to hurt their feelings will not be part of your mantra. You can’t save everyone, and saving yourself every once in a while is beneficial. This might come as a bit of a surprise to those you work with, but stick to your guns. Stand up for yourself and negotiate new terms if the ones you are working under are unsatisfactory. You’re pretty easygoing, but that shouldn’t mean you are a pushover. Use this month as a training session for these skills.

THEME OF THE YEAR, It is time to realise your dreams and collect the rewards coming your way.
