December Horoscope for Virgo

(August 23rd – September 22nd)


It’s a hectic month for Virgo’s. The good news is you will get recognized in your career. When Saturn moves into your 5th house of fun and pleasure life becomes more serious. Your work is a priority. Relationships are challenging the first week and if you’re single you may meet someone who spices up your life. The rule of thumb is keep it simple and all will be well.

The sign of Virgo is where opposites reveal they are connected. Innocence and sexy are one and the same, good and bad are not so easily divided, and of course I could go on forever. Virgo focuses on the gray not the extremes.  Able to come out of their own needs and desires they have the capacity to serve others. This makes them great nurses and caretakers, but it also makes them wonderful actors and impersonators. Their relationship with chaos is also interesting, either they enjoy uncertainty because it gives them an advantage, or they’re fearful of it and try to be in control. Whichever way you fall know you have endless talent, a great curiosity and the ability to push boundaries in a way that gets things done.

The Full Moon on the 3rd sets off your 10th and 4th houses which rule home and career. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself in the limelight. Others will notice you now and you may be asked to take the lead. However, don’t allow yourself to be seduced into something that you don’t want to do, just because you’re recognized. You need to balance home and career and now is your chance to see how you contribute to why it hasn’t happened. You’re facing the eternal battle between what the world demands of us and what we need to nurture our souls. Hopefully you’ll use whatever experiences you have had to make your life more rewarding. Make sure the part of you that no one sees, the part that gives you the strength and courage to tackle what you do, gets what it needs first. With four planets in Sagittarius in your 4th house, being alone is not going to be easy, if that’s what your soul needs. So be prepared.

On the 3rd Mercury goes retrograde in Sagittarius and the past becomes a part of the moment. Don’t be surprised if friends you haven’t heard from in years suddenly show up or call. If you have wanted to take a trip and postponed it, this might be the time you rebook. It’s all about finishing old business not starting something new. Try not to sign any contracts until after the 23rd when Mercury goes direct. Mercury for the first two weeks of the month will conjunct Saturn, so communication may have a serious side to it. If you have wanted to bring something up but never found the courage, this could be a good time to put it on the table. Getting things resolved is part of the energy.

On December 20th Saturn leaves Sagittarius where it has been for the last 2 1\2 years and it moves into Capricorn. Sadge rules your 4th house of the home and so either you’ve been going through some renovations or perhaps someone is missing from the family, because they’re off doing their thing. Whatever your particular situation, you may discover that things pick up by the end of the year. Your home life should be lighter and easier to relax in. Saturn in Capricorn is going to give you more power. If you have children, it may mean they are growing up and taking on more responsibility. If you’re single it could mean you’re ready for more responsibility in your own life. Perhaps you’re tired of the dating game and finally want to settle down. Saturn has a stabilizing affect on whatever it touches. Whichever way it affects you, it’s there to create a better foundation. So pay attention. 

Pisces rules your house of relationships and Neptune, its ruler, is in its own house. You are particularly idealistic when it comes to relationships in general. You tend to give them more credit than they often deserve.  The danger of that position is getting disappointed. When you expect more than someone can deliver you’re going to be let down. Neptune is in trine to Jupiter in Scorpio for at leas the first two weeks. So your ability to remain lost in  your ideals is strong. Try not to surrender to it completely, especially if you have important decisions to make.

The key to sanity for the holidays is not to try and be perfect. You will have a lot going on, especially in the home. With Mercury retrograde for most of the month nothing will arrive on time and the information you will be given may be incorrect. Don’t expect things to fall into place right away. If you can just go with the flow it will all work out in the end. The key is to adapt when you have to.  Have a wonderful holiday and a very happy New Year.
