Aquarius - December 2018
Hi lovely water-carriers! New friends will be arriving by the dozen in Aquarius world in December, as the new Moon on the 7th brings fabulous fresh start energy to your house of friendships! This is a wonderful time to get yourself out there and make the best of these exciting interactions; some of those new faces may not be around for very long, but rest assured, while they are here they have much to teach and learn from you. Mercury is also back in this area after the 13th and will spend the rest of the month smoothing over any difficult interactions which arose during his retrograde spell at the end of November. His conjunction with Jupiter between the 16th and 27th is marvellous for group activities connected to spiritual or religious development; it’s also a useful link for establishing overseas connections or higher education courses. The full Moon of the 22nd completes December’s lunar cycle in your house of everyday work and routines; watch out for changes taking place around normal working life, as an existing job or working relationship comes to a end.
Lilith continues on her impulsive journey through your sign this month, hence it will be hard to toe the line over festive plans, and you may simply feel like finding a quiet corner and doing totally your own thing. Your fight to be you amid a host of restrictions on your personal life and expression continues, and if you have a birthday during the first week in February, you will be especially sensitive to others’ attempts to contain you, as Chiron hovers over your natal Sun. Romantic encounters at this time are likely to be passionate and possibly a little compulsive, but it is in these kinds of relationships that you will feel most able to truly be yourself. Aquarians by nature like to turn their back on unnecessary tradition, so look forward to some unusual and non-conformational love relationships under Lilith’s influence!
Career plans will receive a welcome helping hand in December from Venus’s arrival in your career sector on the 3rd. You will be more conscious now of the opinion others have of you, and of the power of first impressions, and because of this you may find your personal appearance or skill base under review. Venus and Neptune join together in a highly imaginative trine between the 14th and 29th, which is wonderful for all kinds of creative work. You could also find yourself working for a charitable institution now, or with vulnerable adults and children. Your compassion will be second to none and the world may suddenly seem a sad and lonely place. Your strengths here lie in supporting and nurturing those who need you. This is not an overly practical aspect, however, therefore if there are fine details to attend to, these are best left until early January.
Your ideas will be even quirkier than usual this month, as Uranus returns to your house of communication until early March! This is a highly innovative transit and offers you a chance to make a return to scientific or humanitarian projects which were shelved in the summer due to a lack of funding or commitment. Uranus and the Sun combine energies during the first fortnight of the month, an aspect which is favourable for working on artistic ventures with friends. You will feel that your opinions are validated by those around you and this will further enhance your instinct to create something unique and exciting. Activities with children are also well-favoured at this time as you naturally express your spontaneous side. Have a brilliant month!
