December Monthly Horoscope December 2018 ~ Making Resolutions
December 01 2018
As the twelfth month begins, our minds are drawn like moths to a flame, to contemplate issues that both disturb and fascinate us. Retrograde Mercury backs into investigative Scorpio at 3:11 a.m. on Saturday, reigniting old theories and suspicions about what truths lie beneath the surface.
Mercury stations direct on December 6th, with Uranus in Aries the only planet remaining in retrograde until early January. 2018 has brought alot of introspection and insight into ourselves and now we can feel and think more clearer and move towards our goals for the upcoming year.
The New Moon on Friday December 7, 2018 falls at 15° Sagittarius. The New Moon December 2018 astrology is influenced by the conjunction of Mars and Neptune at 13° Pisces. The New Moon in Sagittarius raises our aspirations and aims us towards greater spiritual heights, a detail that can be overlooked amid so much consumer marketing that precedes the year-end festive period in many countries.
The long-lived Uranus–Neptune semi-square is rejuvenated again in the last month of 2018, perfecting for the fourth time on December 15. This consciousness-raising aspect, in effect from mid 2017 until mid 2019, is the first crisis point in the Uranus–Neptune synodic cycle that began in 1993, when the two planets aligned in Capricorn.
The full moon on Saturday December 22, 2018 at 0° Cancer makes a helpful aspect to Uranus. This Full Moon period has a slightly restrained quality, with the masculine facets of the Sun and Saturn in Capricorn opposing the Cancer Moon’s feminine, intuitive energy.
