EH December Horoscope by Alex Trenoweth
And the prize for being the most impatient goes to… you! Things just aren’t happening fast enough for you and this is making you well, a little crazy. Do try to remember this as you make impossible demands on the very people who are trying to help you. In fact you run the risk of being misunderstood by those most nearest and dearest to you. In particular your very bad up-and-coming habit of ignoring the finer details of situations are likely to cause some serious quarrels and mistakes. The new Moon on the 11th is a very good time to put your metaphorical house back in order and clear the air with those you have driven insane with your carelessness. Fortunately, you have the capacity to bounce back from chaos easily—but all the same, choose your words carefully (“I’m sorry” might be a good place to start). The Full Moon on Christmas day should reveal some promising news in your career.
Well, if it appears there might be a conspiracy going on, you’re probably on the right track. The thing is, folks realize how stubborn you can be and thus they feel the need to resort to all manner of sneaky tricks to get you to do things their way. Of course it’s no fun when there are things going on behind your back but what choice do you leave people with when you insist on digging in your heels? Immoveable, impossible, obstinate you! You leave others with little choice but to resort to dirty tricks! When in doubt, the sensible thing is to go where the fun is! The New Moon on the 11th is a good time to update your financial matters and to re-think some investments. The Full Moon on Christmas day brings business dealings—particularly if they involve overseas accounts—to the top of your agenda.
Dear me—and pardon me for asking—do you ever shut up? No? Well try! Normally your chatter is rather pleasant and innocuous but these days, it has the capacity to really upset the family—and don’t even pretend you don’t know what this refers to. As the holidays are coming up, it might not be a bad day to take a few deep breaths before you make any critical comments or give an unsolicited opinion. The New Moon on the 11th is an excellent time to reflect on your relationships. If they are not working out for you, simply stop investing in them. And stop trying to talk your way into or out of them. The Full Moon on Christmas day brings very deep issues to the fore so mind your manners at the dinner table and remember that some things are better left unsaid.
Remember that big box of stuff you keep meaning to sort out? Or all those clothes you promised you take to the charity shops? Or that fiddly paint job you’ve been putting off? Well this is the month to get those jobs done. After all they’ve been on your to do list for a very long time. The New Moon on the 11th brings organizational matters to the forefront of your time and energy so before it gets to the blowout stage, clear the decks as much as you can so you can get on with fresh projects. The full moon on Christmas day falls in the realm of your relationships. Stressful? Just a touch–so try not to take things so seriously. It’s supposed to be a happy occasion after all.
To you the world is like one big playpen and you are a big toddler. And this month, more than ever, you’re in the mood for some serious fun. There’s so much fun to be had—and so many tantrums to be thrown. Seriously Leo, calm down and you won’t find yourself in the centre of so many dramas. One area of your life that will attract the soap operas is your finances: there really isn’t a need to discuss your money issues with all and sundry. In fact, to be honest, you should probably keep business proposals to yourself until the New Moon on the 11th. The Full Moon on Christmas day looks set to wreak havoc on your careful plans—so try not to get too over-excited when things don’t turn out the way you had anticipated.
If there is one thing that gets on your nerves, it’s disorder of any sort—and this goes for the emotional kinds as well. And yet, all kinds of nervous and unpredictable emotional drama seems to find its way to your doorstep over and over again this month. What to do? Well do as you would do with any other type of chaos: spend a little time putting things back in order. Spend some time with the friend who is grieving over that crazy relationship. Have the tissues ready for your overwhelmed boss and/or the kid who is disappointed things aren’t going the way they wanted. The new moon on the 11th provides an opportunity to clear the proverbial slate and the Full Moon on Christmas day brings you a shift into happier, less dramatic times.
You’re at your charming best but what to do about other people? Just when you think you understand someone, they go and pull the rug from under you. And so contrary! You say one thing and he says completely the opposite. In this type of scenario, you have a choice: either quietly and stoically put up with it or walk away. It really is that simple. But if you choose to be quiet, have a think about what purpose this serves. Yes, it avoids stressful confrontations but what about you and your feelings? It’s time you made other people think about how you’re feeling for a change. The New Moon on the 11th is a good time to get into the habit of saying what’s really on your mind whilst the Full Moon on Christmas day brings some much needed stability to your emotional life.
This month is a decidedly chilled out one for you. And isn’t about time you took things a little easier? Long, quiet sessions listening to great music, time spent meditating or pursuing creative interests can help give you a break from the stresses and strains of life. If the thought of being alone with your own thoughts fills you with dread then it is a sure sign that you have been burning the candle at both ends for far too long. Understand your limits and stop pretending you don’t have the same limits as everyone else. You really are human you know! The New Moon on the 11th is a great opportunity to sort through your financial dealings in preparation for the full moon on Christmas day that will bring news of further business and career opportunities.
Try to smile Sagittarius. There are worse things in the world than being the centre of everyone’s attention. If problems in the career are getting you down then perhaps it’s time to put a new perspective into operation. Yes, working with fiddly details are really no one’s idea of fun (except for Virgos) so all you need to do is just put your head down and get on with things as best as you can. And if it really is too much–well, there’s nothing wrong with asking for a little help. You’ll be surprised at how many people have been waiting for the signal from you that they can be of service to you. The New Moon on the 11th will provide you with lots of opportunities for a personal “re-boot” whilst the Full Moon on Christmas day opens up a time to count your blessings.
You seldom have time for activities that you might disparagingly call “naval gazing” but that is exactly what you are being invited to do. Drop the business dealings, stop tidying things up and put the cheque book away. There are just some things that can’t be bought, exchanged or sold—and amongst these things is your sanity. Do take time out of your busy schedule and focus on what is really important before the hectic rush into the holidays. If you choose to ignore advice on looking after yourself then the New Moon on the 11th could very well provide you with ample opportunities to take a back seat to all the seasonal craziness. The Full Moon on Christmas day adds strain to an already stressful day but a little thinking ahead can alleviate an awful lot of the tension.
This is not the best month for letting your mouth run ahead of your brain. As much as you dislike being told what to do, saying what’s on your mind is going to get you into trouble. Whilst the short-term damage may seem quite insignificant, the longer term damage can lead to spoiled friendships and resentment from others. And speaking of friends, the New Moon on the 11th is an excellent time to see what everyone has been up to these past few weeks. The Full Moon on Christmas day is good time to enjoy some peace and quiet, away from all the usual chaos of holiday cheer. Bah humbug?
Things have been cooking on the career front for some time but the problem is that you just haven’t had the faith to believe that. This month however, you will have confirmation from the right people that all is well. And you will be pleasantly surprised by how highly you are regarded. The new moon on the 11th clears the necessary space for you to have the confidence to reach out and connect with those who have the power to put you where you want to be. The Full Moon on Christmas day brings pleasant surprises from friends you thought you had lost contact with.
