Following is a general overview of how the
planetary trends for December/January 2016 apply to each sun sign.
If you know your rising
sign (Ascendant), read that, too,
for additional insights.
You may have been feeling unsettled, of late, and
are now keen to put certain elements of the past behind you and move on
with your life. While change is often a good thing, be sure that you
would be doing so for the right reasons, such as to pursue a new
employment opportunity, for example, and not simply for a desire to
escape responsibilities or for a greater sense of personal freedom.
Indeed, there may well be a new career development early in the new
year, one in which your past experience could stand you in good stead
for a prime assignment. Meanwhile, over the Holidays, take extra care
while traveling to festive events. Also, remain mindful of how your
current overly assertive nature may impact those around you.
It's time to clear out your closets, literally and
metaphorically, of anything that you've outgrown or no longer need that
would hold you back from realizing a bold new objective amongst your
New Year resolutions. This would also include thought processes and
emotional response patterns that no longer serve your highest good.
Indeed, a new worldview is emerging, born of past experiences and
perhaps of recent revelations that cause you now to consider broadening
your horizons. You may also contemplate tackling a creative project
that has been on the back burner for some time.
A new partnership or alliance may result from
social activities during the Holiday season, that might have a bearing
on the direction your career or a professional undertaking may take in
the new year. For those available, romance in the workplace is also a
possibility. A metamorphosis or renaissance of sorts could shortly
occur, precipitated by some recent soul searching, or even a few home
truths of which you become aware. It all adds up to a substantial
amount of emotional and personal growth taking place, boosting your
sense of self worth and self esteem, from which your ambitions and
standing in the workplace can benefit.
A new work or professional opportunity could
appear quite unexpectedly, or perhaps a current arrangement or
assignment might evolve into something more substantial. Remain
flexible now, to take advantage of changes taking place around you.
However, it might be wise to not initiate change just for the sake of
novelty, on a whim, or an emotional impulse. Be mindful of the
far-reaching consequences of any actions or decisions you take now.
People may be more inclined to listen to what you have to say, giving
your words, along with your credibility, more weight. It will do your
stock in trade no harm, either, as your value in your professional
field of endeavor rises.
Keep a tight rein on finances over the holiday
season, as it will be all too easy to go overboard having fun with
friends and family. If possible, set yourself a strict budget and stick
to it. You may be glad you did. Also, take extra care while traveling,
even though you may be in a hurry or on a schedule, as erratic behavior
could get you into hot water. Likewise, comments made in haste without
due forethought could come back to haunt you. Nonetheless, this is
likely to be a highly stimulating period, with the prospect of much
enjoyment and pleasure in the company of friends and family. A new
employment opportunity could come your way early in the new year, with
the prospect of a higher salary. If so, do your due diligence before
making a decision.
There could be some progressive changes taking
place within your domestic environment during this period, when
activities around the home are likely to increase. While your finances
may begin to show signs of improvement, money can also quickly slip
through your fingers unless you stick to a practical budget. Allow
yourself more time to pursue creative activities, as this will not only
provide an outlet for your inspired thought, but may also give you a
much needed sense of accomplishment. While friends and significant
others can be a source of inspiration, it is important that you make up
your own mind in regard to key decisions.
There's a limit to how much you can put yourself
about during the Holidays, so know where to draw the line when
committing to activities. Indeed, you may choose to opt for a
relatively quiet time close to home. Even so, it won't stop you
reaching out to friends and loved ones for some uplifting social
interaction. Pay attention to your health and well-being, even if it
means spending a little more on your own needs. Indeed, treat yourself
to a soothing massage, or a visit to a day spa to lift your spirits!
You may decide to hunker down and do more work from home in the new
year. There could also be some kind of restriction on when and how your
A great deal of your activities take place behind
the scenes in December, but you will, nonetheless, be kept fairly busy.
You may be working on a very tight budget, that necessitates you to get
more creative, and perhaps more discerning, with your spending, and how
you utilize your precious resources. Both communications and local
travel increase as the new year dawns, so you may need to keep your
notes and files well organized, and your schedule flexible, in order to
stay on top of your game. Go easy on yourself, and don't drive yourself
too hard; with Mars in your sign and solar first house during January,
you might be inspired to tackle more than you can comfortably handle.
Be aware of your limitations, and pace yourself accordingly.
You're in your element as the Holidays approach,
though you may also be rather busy, too. Nonetheless, you'll make
time for some fun and festive activities with friends, even if it does
tax your schedule, and your staying power. You could be rewarded for
your recent efforts with some extra cash in your pocket, perhaps a
bonus, raise, or a new source of income. One way or another you stand
to gain financially during this period. You may receive some form of
appreciation or acknowledgement from your employer for a job well done,
or at least feel like you deserve it! After all, you're a highly
responsible person, and take great pride in all you do, both at work
and in your personal life. And the stars now align in your favor.
You may feel like you've earned a little quiet
time over the Holidays, but your friends and family might have other
ideas, involving you in a number of exciting and enjoyable activities.
Even so, be sure to get adequate rest and down time, in which to
indulge yourself in some simple pleasures. As the new year dawns you
may be inspired to set a bold new objective, one that would bring you
great personal satisfaction to attain. Indeed, broadening your horizons
is something you may now be keen to do. It may be possible this year to
make a long held dream come true.
While you're likely to be much in demand over the
Holiday season, you might feel like just getting away from your usual
routine and surroundings, if only to gain a little perspective on your
life. Indeed, it may be time to contemplate the future, and to
seriously consider some new objective or goal. However, don't be too
hasty to implement change just for the sake of it; take the time to
consider your options carefully before making any irrevocable
decisions. Revisit your hopes and dreams of yesteryear to see if any of
them could become a reality in the near future. Your fortunes appear
poised to take a turn for the better; keep faith in your ability to
A new professional undertaking or responsibility
could be taking up a lot more of your times these days, so it may
require more effort to accommodate festive activities into your busy
schedule, but do so you will. Besides, some light-hearted distractions
could prove to be the perfect counterbalance to offset the weight of
your duties or obligations. You may have a new goal or ambition in mind
for the new year, but are not yet sure how you might attain it. Never
fear! The help or resources you need will arrive in a timely, if
unexpected, manner. Your kind and selfless actions may inspire those
around you to do more for others.
