Dec 22 - Jan 19
Click daily, weekly or monthly for your horoscope
For all of us, December is a month of huge change, with Jupiter and Saturn coming together in the same area of your chart at the same time in two decades. As the two most powerful planets in the solar system, one representing where there is an opportunity for expansion and the other where hard work is required, when they come together they represent an unstoppable force. That is the case for everyone, but for you this is set to have a profound impact on your life, waking you to a new reality on 3rd December. This is when Jupiter will be in his first full day in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery, marking the official start of your most expansive and potentially adventurous year in over a decade. However, this is not out of the blue, with Pluto here since 2008, Saturn since 2017 and even Venus starting the month here, fuelling a desire for adventure from the get go. Yet until returning here, Jupiter will be making the most of his final hours in your financial sector, knowing that if he can leave you with an expansive sense of what's possible, you can continue to take your financial power back. That shouldn't be hard, with the Sun in your financial sector until 22nd December and Mercury returning from 9th December to 29th December, with the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game. A Full Moon in your income sector on 12th December will add to this month's financial focus. In the meantime, there are new professional developments this month, but in a way that gives you the best of both worlds. It is Venus' return to your career sector on 20th December that will allow you to get a jump on new developments in the New Year and to work with a more slow and steady force now in play on the job front. However, this isn't enough to get in the way of this month's adventurous developments and what this will lead onto in 2020. This will give you the best of both worlds, creating an auspicious end to this professional year, but without heavy demands.
Week beginning Monday 9th of December 2019
The Moon is having a big impact this week, less in its own right and more in the impact this will have on some very active planets. In saying that, starting the week with the Moon in Taurus is a definite advantage in its own right, giving you an intuitive edge from the get go. However, at the same time that this will put the Moon at a friendly aspect to the major planetary activity assembling in an adventurous part of your chart, this will also put some pressure on Mars in your relationship sector. Any relationship tension this might create will not only be contained to Monday but during Mercury, the planet of communication's final hours in your relationship sector. By Wednesday the Moon will not only be in your income sector but gearing up to oppose the Sun in your financial sector on Thursday as a Full Moon. Again, the Moon will clash with planets on the financial front but dance with those on the job front, either way giving income matters a push.
Monday 9th of December 2019
As he has done since he first returned to your relationship sector over two months ago, for what should have been a 14 to 15 day visit, Mercury will spend his final hours working to give your relationships a voice. Fortunately, with the Moon not only in Taurus but clashing with Mars in your relationship sector, there should be enough emotional and passionate responses to give the planet of communication something to work with in his final hours. Mercury will end the day in your financial sector, where his smart head for money will help you bring this financial year home.
Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac. A sensuous and tactile earth sign, ruled by the planet Venus. She was the Roman Goddess of Love, a beauty with a curvaceous figure, and a beautiful smile just like yours!
The symbol for Taurus is the bull, a magnificent, strong and normally placid beast, that will stand its ground with fortitude. These same qualities can be said of you. Normally placid, but not always!
Most of the time you're agreeable and adorable, but on those very rare occasions when someone pushes you too far, your temper can be explosive. We may have to wave a red flag at a bull for a long time before it charges, then we should get out of its way!
Bull-headed might apply to you, because once you make your mind up, all the persuasion in the world is not going to change it. If you're ever a bull in a china shop, it will most likely be because someone is hurrying you, not understanding that you need to do things at your own steady pace.
It may seem that you do things a little more slowly than others, but you apply yourself more thoroughly. The friend who reads a book and finishes it in a fraction of the time that it takes you, probably won't recall the details a year on, you will.
The mode of Taurus is fixed. In other words you need stability and may actively dislike, or feel uncomfortable with, any big or unexpected changes. You definitely prefer the devil you know to the one that you don't.
Venus gives you a love of luxury and material things. You like money, for the wonderful things it buys and the security it brings. You don't mind working hard if it means you can indulge yourself and your loved-ones. You'll choose quality over quantity every time!
Venus also gives you an appreciation of beauty and form. You have a good eye for art and a good ear for music. Your tastes are discerning and it's likely that you have your own musical, literary or artistic gifts. With that said, we're equally likely to find you working on a farm, or in a garden, florist, kitchen, bakery, accounts department or bank.
Taurus is the sign that rules our personal possessions. You can be possessive about those things which belong to you, and why shouldn't you if they're yours! Taurus rules farming, not just the bulls that inhabit it, and the foods that grow in the soil to sustain us.
You're a tactile person who delights in sensual pleasures. This makes you a lover of good food, and you probably know exactly the wine you'd like with it, and which dessert would be best to follow. You incline towards a sweet tooth, perhaps this is why the Venus figure is often depicted as slightly plump or well-rounded.
You get along best with the other earth signs, Virgo and Capricorn and with the water signs, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. Much of this will depend on the sign Venus was in at the time of your birth. It's never far from the Sun. If you're not sure and you'd like to be, one of our astrologers will be pleased to take your call.
