December 2017 Monthly Horoscope for Aries
Saturn has been in Sagittarius, your 9th house, on and off since 2014. This has been a time of expansion and learning, but also one of discipline. You learned how to be adventurous with restrictions, and also how to be free without escaping responsibilities of daily life. You have come to terms with what has held you back in the past, and are now able to recognize how to let yourself be free while living in this world of limitations. The theme for this aspect for you has been learning how to live with integrity. These learning experiences will change on December 20th, when Saturn moves into your 10th house of work and professional accomplishments. This indicates an upcoming career shift. You may see more demands and higher expectations of you at your job, or you may choose to take your work more seriously. While this can be a challenging time, because you are such a go-getter, this is generally a positive aspect for you, Aries. It is important that you set the stage for the long-term. Saturn in this house is usually indicative of long-term goals, as he will be here for the next 2.5 years! You may see more demands in your job, but it will likely lead to a path that is perfect for you. Whether this leads to a promotion or a new career path, Saturn has not been here in over 28 years, and he wants you to take this alignment seriously!
On the 1st, Venus enters your 9th house of expansion, philosophy, and travel. You will find yourself in the company of people this month who are cultured and open-minded intellectuals. It is easy for you to relate to these individuals, as Venus allows you to see the harmony in their ideals. You may be inspired to travel to beautiful places, or even find the beauty in your surroundings. You might also feel attracted to people who speak different languages or who are from other countries. If you are in a relationship, you will value your freedom and independence, and see this as an important part of intimacy. Venus encourages you to find a balance between loving your partner while you are with them and away from them. You might also feel inspired to learn a new language this month, as the beauty of communication never ceases to capture Venus in Sagittarius!
Starting on the 3rd, you may want to rethink travel plans or big investments. Because Mercury is in retrograde in Sagittarius, it is not a great time to begin new things. There is also a full moon in Gemini on this date, which means you definitely need to take a step back! Instead of taking action, use this time to reflect on your daily routine and habits. It is a great day to reorganize the home and your workspace. Small steps will pave the way for bigger events to come during December! Have patience, eager Aries.
On the 9th, Mars enters Scorpio, your 8th house of regeneration, transformation, and joint finances. This alignment may make you feel highly aggressive and sexual this month. Use your physical energy towards something useful, like working out, tending to house chores, and healthy sex. However, you may feel possessive and jealous within your romantic relationships. These emotional extremes are useful because this house is all about death and rebirth. Let go of the old energies that no longer serve you in order to make room what is yet to come. The Universe encourages you to power through this struggle, dear Aries! In addition, you may receive money from family members through inheritance or as a gift.
On the 10th of this month, Mercury in your 9th house trines Uranus in your 1st house. This is a powerful aspect, and you may feel a surge of energy and passion for social change. Uranus has been in your 1st house since 2011, and will remain here until next year. Mercury in the 9th house indicates your struggle with reconciling old beliefs with newly realized truths. Uranus in your sign represents fire, uprising, revolution, and great change. The Sun also trines Uranus on the 16th, and Venus trines Uranus on the 20th. These Trine aspects are positive yet present us with challenges. The planets encourage you to work with this trine aspect to make a necessary shift in your life. What do you need to let go of? What occupies your mind the most? What are you most passionate about, dear Aries? You are a natural leader and warrior! The Universe is counting on you to be the change you want to see in your life and in the world.
The New Moon in Sagittarius will encourage you to expand your horizons on the 18th. This is an excellent day for meditation, reflection, and spending time alone in nature. You can also set goals for the new year today. It is the perfect time to wipe the slate clean and begin anew! On the 20th, the Sun enters Capricorn, your 10th house. You may feel extra confident today in the workplace, and everyone is sure to notice. For the next few weeks, trust your judgment when it comes to finances, career path, and projects. This alignment makes you at the top of your game in your professional sector. On the 25th, Venus also enters your 10th house of work, social status and professional life. You will be focused more on your career rather than romance at this time. This is the beginning of a successful period until mid-January! People will be more attracted to you, but may want to get close to you for your money or success. Be mindful of who you let in towards the end of the month, as you are in quite a powerful position. This month is filled with transformation, change, and excitement for you. Enjoy the wild ride, dear Aries!
