Starting the month with the out-of-control spiral of a Mars-Uranus conjunction on December 1 isn?t ideal, but when the universe speaks, you have little choice but to listen. You can?t control big world events, but you can keep your own little world as safe as possible. Mars makes a comfortable stop in its home sign of Scorpio on the ninth, so your passionate longings aren?t a secret. What do you truly desire? And what?s stopping you from just reaching out and taking it? When the sun makes an inferior conjunction to retrograde Mercury on December 12, you get more insight into the past. Now that you can clearly see what you?ve passed in the rearview mirror, is there anything you?d like to go back and fix? It?s never too late. A progressive Sun-Uranus trine on the sixteenth challenges your commitment to convention, but you aren?t opposed to some personal growth. There?s always a way to change your opinion and save face. Venus follows the sun into Capricorn on December 24, reminding you that you still have some unfinished business to attend to. Now that your procrastination tactics aren?t working anymore, you?ll have to deal with the unavoidable.
