You’re looking like the sexy secret agent of the zodiac these days, Aquarius! On the one hand, you’re dazzling everyone with your charisma and ambition, now that energetic Mars is in your sign. His cosmic lover Venus joins him on the 7th, making December the perfect time to flirt, have fun, and find love.
The 1st is especially sweet as your optimism goes through the roof, thanks to a happy meeting between Mars and Jupiter, the two most vivacious planets in the solar system. The 6th isn’t looking too shabby either, with spontaneous Uranus encouraging you to reach out to someone and plan an unscheduled dinner date or even a job interview.
This is a great time for pulling off a glamorous makeover, as Venus is the planet of beauty. Whether it’s just getting a new hairstyle or going for more dramatic touchups (like Botox, fillers and plastic surgery) you can really jazz up your looks. You’re going to want to look hot, as the full moon on the 13th falls in your house of romance. This could be a major turning point as you may have some serious decisions to make. If a love affair hasn’t been worth the trouble it has caused, you could be highly motivated to leave. Mars is amping up your self-esteem, letting you know that you don’t have to settle for table scraps.
One of the issues at this lunation is that there seems to be a disconnect between what your goals and values are and those of your lover. It’s critical to make sure that you’re on the same page when it comes to values and long term plans. But if all is well in your romance, this full moon could be one heck of a sultry, sexy event. Singles, you could meet someone new in the weeks ahead. Couples might finally conceive after trying for a while, and attached Aquarians can see their relationship become juicier and closer.
Just watch out for issues with your friends at this time. It’s odd, because overall your pals should be a terrific source of fun all month long, what with the mighty Sun and Saturn in your house of camaraderie. Friends could introduce you to new people, tip you off about job openings, or invite you into a club or organization that they’re part of. But around the time of the full moon they may act strangely. Perhaps they’re jealous of your more exciting love life, or they don’t approve of your taste in lovers. Whatever. Let it pass and make your own decisions about how to run your life. A friend with benefits, by the way, is not a smart move right now. Just sayin’.
However, keep those lines of communication open with the tribe as well as industry contacts as they could prove to be valuable. The 3rd, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, and 24th are all super days for enjoying the company of pals and rubbing elbows with movers and shakers. Put a gold star next to the 10th, when two of the most authoritative orbs in the solar system, the Sun and Saturn, meet up in this part of your chart. Be dressed to impress, have your portfolio or resume polished up, and have an elevator pitch at the ready. And believe it or not, New Year’s Eve could also put you in a good place to meet people who can positively impact your career and earnings.
Despite the look-at-me kind of vibe that’s going on, you will be secretly going within, as a number of planets are in your twelfth house of releasing, healing and closure. At the top of the month Pluto, Mercury and Venus are here, and there will be a new moon in this part of your chart on the 29th. It’s time to trim the dead wood from your life, which isn’t always easy. Pampering and nurturing yourself are also a twelfth house activity and it can be hard to find the time or money for self-care over the holidays.
The cosmos will force you to slow down, though, when Mercury retrogrades on the 19th. The Sun enters this part of the sky two days later on the 21st, and I have to say I’ve rarely seen such good auspices for becoming more emotionally and spiritually healthy than this. I’m not telling you to head to mountain in Nepal and chant, but if you can start incorporating techniques into your daily routine that will help you remain centered and more serene, you’re working with the energy of the cosmos. Meditation, prayer, mindfulness practices, reading a book about Taoism or Buddhism—all of these things can help you release the dramas of the past and the present so that you can move on to a happier place.
You’ll be the center of attention though on Christmas, as Venus in your sign forms three delicious aspects with other planets. Your sense of adventure is growing, new people from other cultures or points of view will be around and you could make a lot of new friends on the 24th and 25th.
The last week of the month could surprisingly bring a job offer, raise, or an idea that could put more money in your pocket in the year ahead. Don’t assume that everyone is off from work and that no business is being done. New Year’s Eve looks traditional for you, and if there’s one resolution you’re going to make it’s to find more security in 2017, in love, finances and your mind set.
