The Future Looks Bright
Time to go after those dreams.
You already know there’s a lot going down in December, but there’s some interesting planetary movement that’s going to impact your life outside of the holidays.
On the 6th, Mercury, the planet of action, goes direct so expect those gifts that have been back ordered since practically forever to finally make an appearance.
Then, you’ll start to feel a strong urge to kick back and enjoy some eggnog around the 7th with the new moon in Sagittarius. On the 12th, Mercury moves into Sagittarius, giving you a lighter-than-usual energy. Suddenly, any obstacles or limits you were stressing over just don’t seem like a BFD anymore.
The month rounds out with a full moon in Cancer, stirring up some warm-fuzzy vibes for you. Here’s what else is in store, according to Donna Page, a professional astrologer with a graduate degree in counseling psychology.
MARCH 21–APRIL 19
You just want to be free to be you, Aries, and that’s especially true around the 7th with the new moon. You’ll get back in touch with your inner beliefs and what makes you tick. Keep a close eye on your spending this month. Sure, you want to buy epic gifts for everyone, but a girl’s got to pay her rent, too.
The full moon on the 22nd makes you rethink the balance between the sh*t you have to do, and what you actually need to do for yourself. Are you taking time out in your busy schedule to do you? Don’t forget yourself while you’re running around for everyone else.
APRIL 20–MAY 20
You’re about friendships this month, Taurus. You’ll want to expand your social circle thanks to Venus being in a sector of your chart about connecting with people. Mercury is also hanging out in the same sector, making you want to have deep convos with your new pals.
To round things out in the buddy department, Mars is in a sector of your chart about friendships, making you want to put even more effort and energy into your relationships. The full moon energy on the 22nd will make you want to travel and learn something new in the process. Don’t hesitate to start planning your next big adventure now.
MAY 21–JUNE 20
Venus, the planet of love and money, is sparking some deep thoughts for you this month, Gem. You’ll crave diving into something that you feel passionate about. Maybe it’s traveling to a new country to do volunteer work, or really getting involved in your job.
Things will also flow for you with your everyday life—you finally feel like you’ve found a routine you can stick with. On the 12th, Mercury moves into your house of other people, giving you even more texts and emails to answer than usual. Can a girl get a break here? Don’t be afraid to take a personal timeout when you need it.
JUNE 21–JULY 22
You’re all about doing what you need to in order to stay healthy this month, Cancer. The new moon on the 7th is in a sector of your chart about health, work, and routine, giving you a push to focus on your overall well-being and balance.
You’ll also feel the urge to expand your horizons and do something you really believe in. If you want to make a change, you can do it. With Mars, the planet of action, connected to the new moon, you’ll feel like you can conquer the world. So don’t hold back—get out there.
JULY 23–AUGUST 22
You’ve got your childhood on the brain at the beginning of the month, thanks to Venus in a sector of your chart about home, family, and subconscious. You’ll be thinking back to special moments you had while growing up and may even get back in touch with old buddies.
The new moon on the 7th makes you want to just have fun and party. Sure, there are things to worry about, but you’ll deal with it another time. Around the 22nd, you’ll start to mull over your goals for the new year. A big one: finding a balance between your downtime and party time.
AUGUST 23–SEPTEMBER 22
Venus, the planet of love and money, is traveling through your house of communication, travel, and siblings. You’ll find yourself taking short trips to learn more and reading to try to expand your horizons. You’ll also spend some solid time connecting with your siblings or people you think of like family. Girls weekend, anyone?
BTW: This is the month for you to dream big. If you think it, it can happen. Somebody out there may put down your dreams, but channel that into something good—take that criticism and use it to motivate you.
It’s time for some power shopping, Libra. Venus, the planet of love and money, is in your second house of finances, making it a great time to find deals that are too good to pass up.
You’ll also find yourself embracing your inner beauty and just giving yourself some overall love. When Mercury goes directly on the 6th, you’ll find things really start to move for you. Those plans you made way back when? They’re actually happening now.
OCTOBER 23–NOVEMBER 21
Venus and Mercury are in your sign, Scorpio, stirring up a lot of energy around focusing on what you want and putting yourself first. You’ll find yourself zeroing in on your needs and doing what’s right for you—not what someone else says you should do. The new moon on the 7th makes you want to break free of financial limitations. Sometimes you’ve just got to splurge on yourself. You’re worth it.
NOVEMBER 22–DECEMBER 21
It’s a new start for you around the 7th with the new moon, Sag, and you’ll be feeling super-optimistic about the future. After all, there’s zero reasons why things won’t work out the way you want.
Mars is in your house of home and family, making you wonder where you’re going to end up when you’re older. Don’t stress over it too much—these things have a way of just working themselves out.

You’ll just want to go take some time to rejuvenate and dream a little.
Mars, the planet of action, is in a sector of your chart about writing and communication, making this the perfect time to start that journal you’ve been thinking about for eons. Let it flow and use your intuition—you’ll be surprised how much you get out of it.

You’ve been working hard, Aquarius, and this month you’ll finally be recognized for it. But it’s not all work and no play: The new moon on the 7th is vibrating your house of friendship, making it a good month to get out, party, and meet new people.
You’ll also find yourself thinking over your undeveloped talents. Maybe it’s time to pull out your guitar again and do some open mic nights, just for kicks. It’ll leave you feeling fulfilled in new ways.
FEBRUARY 19–MARCH 20
This is your month, Pisces, and it’s time to grab it by the balls. The new moon on the 7th makes you ready to step into the spotlight. You know what you want to be recognized for in your life and career—and you’re ready to do something about it.
Around the 22nd, you’ll feel the urge to get help from your friends to make your dreams a reality. Embrace it. They’re there to help see your vision through.
