DECEMBER 2017

Gemini Sun
Gemini Rising

You can expect the unexpected in your career sector early December, with Mars challenging Uranus as they both change signs: Mars moving into Libra, and Uranus retracing his steps back into Pisces.

Activity will shift to your love life or creative affairs during the seven weeks Mars tours your 5th House of romance and creativity. If you’re single and looking you’ve a window of opportunity to mingle between now and late January, but be wary of making any lasting commitment during Mercury’s retrograde period–unless of course you’re considering rekindling a romance with an old flame.

 

Alternatively, a hobby or passion project of yours could really take off during this time, or you could find yourself busy with your child’s activities, if you have one.

 

Broadcasting and creative endeavors could serve to give your career a boost, too. Publicity efforts could also benefit you at this time, or even your contacts with people internationally.

 

Your ruler, Mercury, stations retrograde in Sagittarius at the full moon December 3rd. A joint project or venture you’re finalizing right now may need to be reworked over the coming week.

 

New readers will want to grab a copy of the Mercury Retrograde Survival Guide for helpful tips for navigating Mercury retrograde cycles with grace (and a minimum of fuss). You can download a free excerpt to help you learn what to do (and what not to do) right here.

 

A solo project you’ve been working on could be coming to a close near this time, too.

Mercury conjoins Saturn on the 6th, a challenging day for you , dear Gemini, when you may be required to put much hard work. This isn’t a good day to make any long term commitments, though, so keep it noncommittal if anything comes up. Delay until mid January when Mercury will be in a stronger position, if at all possible.

 

Mercury trine Uranus as he retrogrades back into Scorpio on the 10th, giving you the opportunity to revisit the work you’ve been doing day-to-day as well as your routines and identify areas where you can make improvements to your performance.Use the days between now and the 22nd to conduct your review, then implement your changes once Mercury returns to direct motion in January.

 

Alternatively, if you’ve been facing a health concern and receive a diagnosis during the retrograde period, it would be wise to seek out a second opinion, especially once the retrograde is over and Mercury regains his former strength. It’s possible there is information yet to come to light, or something about your situation which is in a state of flux which could be interfering with your ability to get an accurate diagnosis at this time.

“If you begin a partnership in the wake of this new moon it could become a long term arrangement with the potential to trigger unexpected transformation in your public & professional life, enrich you through your relationships to your partners, and bring you authority and influence at the office.”

Communication problems such as language barriers or signal quality could make it difficult to work effectively on a joint project near the 10th, when Venus in your workaday sector challenges Neptune in your 9th House of international affairs and long distance communication.

 

Your ruler, Mercury, conjoins the sun on the 12th of December, a a day when you could find your work and your ideas in the spotlight or up for review.

 

Three days later, on the 15th, he meets up with Venus–also in your workaday sector–and news from a female coworker or a partner on a work project could come to you.

 

The sun enters Sagittarius on the 16th, marking the beginning of a four week stay in your partnership sector. He shoots a friendly greeting to Uranus in your 10th House of career and achievement as he does so, so watch for unexpected developments in your career sector which lead could to partnership opportunities. Just be sure to wait to accept any potential offers until after your ruler turns direct, later in January 2018. The delay will benefit you. Gather information in the meantime.

The new moon December 18th activates your 7th House of partnership. If you do begin a partnership in the wake of this new moon–anytime in the next ten days, though preferably after Christmas–it could become a long term arrangement with the potential to trigger unexpected transformation in your public & professional life, enrich you through your relationships to your partners, and bring you authority and influence at the office.

 

This is an opportunity to begin a new phase in an existing relationship as well, especially if you took the time to review it for ways to improve between December 3rd – 10th. Institute your changes now, and you’ll set yourself up for positive transformation in really unexpected ways.

 

Venus, currently in your workaday sector, sends a friendly beam to Uranus on the 20th, bringing valuable opportunities to your career sector quite suddenly.

 

On the 21st the sun conjoins Saturn, a day that could be very physically draining or demanding. Be sure to take care of your self and your physical body.

 

That same day Venus joins the sun, Saturn and Pluto in Sagittarius for the next three and a half weeks, bringing harmony, cooperation and business to your partnership sector.

 

And on the 22nd your ruler, Mercury, finally stations direct after three weeks retrograde, slowing down activity and progress in your work and partnership sectors. Watch for these two areas of life to pick up speed in the coming weeks.

Venus conjoins Saturn on Christmas day, a meeting with the potential to cast a somber mood over the holiday. We may appreciate a more traditional celebration this year, and feel less inclined to extravagant gift giving.

 

Finally on the 28th, Mars sends out a friendly greeting to Neptune in your 9th House of international affairs, and you could find yourself on camera or giving an artistic performance for an international audience.
