December 1 finds you dealing with a trying Mars-Uranus opposition that threatens to cause a lot of havoc. Your steadiness is appreciated and admired, but even you may not be able to keep calm during this mess. Mars makes a home-base stop in willful Scorpio on the ninth, and conflicted, intense energy is a result as your emotions kick into high gear. You?re used to being guided by logic, but applying some passion to your actions can?t hurt. December 19 is when you feel a huge energy shift, because that?s when your disciplined ruling planet, Saturn, moves into your sign for the first time in several years. You?re ambitious almost to a fault, and you may find your loved ones asking you to slow down and pay attention to them and other important things in your life. The challenge here is not to get so focused on your goals that you lose sight of why you?re trying to reach them in the first place. The sun also takes up residence in your sign on the twenty-first, and then Venus follows soon after that on the twenty-fourth. Your duties and responsibilities are clearly calling, but balance is the key to life.
