Taurus - December 2018
Hello Taurus! Love will feel like a very serious business in December, as Venus connects with sombre Saturn during the days of the 7th to 25th! If there is romance to be discussed, rest assured the conversation will quickly turn to commitment and responsibility. This can be a wonderful thing if you have reached that inevitable stage of a long term relationship. However, there could also be a pervading feeling of burden or guilt as this aspect exerts its influence on existing partnerships. Pluto also links up with Venus after the 22nd in a passionate union which will take you into deep and meaningful conversations with your loved one about some very important spiritual issues. If you meet someone during the Christmas break, your connection with them will be instantaneous and you will probably feel a strong emotional attraction to one another. Venus’s trine with Neptune during the last fortnight of the month is also wonderful for finding love with or through a good friend.
The Moon is new in your house of transformation and regeneration on the 7th, a fabulous aspect for mental and physical healing, of both yourself and others. This is a time when establishing a genuine, emotional link with people will be important to you, you will find it much harder than usual to deal with those who are false or unable to share intimately. Conflict from Mars indicates that group activities could be a chore now, as you opt instead for one to one interactions which allow you to establish those strong bonds you so desire. Mercury is also making a fuss here after the 13th, enhancing your interest in subjects connected with science, spiritual matters and those controversial kinds of topics which others tend to avoid in everyday conversations! Mercury and Jupiter combine energies from the 16th to 27th, a marvellous fortnight for working on your psychic development.
Chiron turns direct again in your house of friendships on the 9th, offering you a chance to forgive those who have hurt you and move on to a stronger and healthier relationship in your future. Neptune’s conjunction with Mars between the 1st and 17th also adds compassionate and healing energy to interactions with friends; you may decide to join a new club or society at this time which involves psychic, religious or dramatic work. There will be something mysterious and very glamorous about new people arriving in your circle of acquaintances under the influence of this aspect. Tread carefully around them until you get to know them better, as there may be unseen facets to their personality which eventually make them less appealing than they first appear! Unleashing anger in friendships could also be problematic as Mars connects with Chiron after the 23rd; you will be easily irritated by others during this phase but will find it hard to express yourself.
December’s full Moon illuminates your communication sector on the 22nd, a time when you will finally see the bigger picture in a confusing personal matter. Family members or colleagues have not been forthcoming with the facts and this has left you feeling anxious and uncertain, but you will find out what is troubling them now and the way forward will suddenly seem obvious. Changes to your local community are more likely around this time; you may lose a neighbour or be witness to significant restructuring in your neighbourhood. You could feel a little over sensitive when expressing your opinions in the weeks leading up to this date, particularly between the 1st and 7th as Mercury continues his retrograde journey through your house of partners. Enjoy your month!
