December 2017 Monthly Horoscope for Sagittarius
With several planets in your house, you are the center of attention in the skies this month! The Sun has been in your 1st house since the 22nd of last month, and he will remain here until December 21st. Happy birthday, dear Sagittarius! Your health is destined to be excellent most of the month, so you can celebrate until your heart's content! You will be drawn to expensive wines, champagne, gourmet food, and chocolate during December. Despite this, you will definitely be more focused on personal appearance, as the Sun in your house makes you a little more vain than usual, so you might be watching your figure over the next few weeks as well. You will be extremely attractive to others, inside and out, and have a seemingly magnetic personality overall. You may receive a lot of attention from others romantically interested in you, but these interactions are not predicted to pan out long-term. Still, enjoy yourself, let go, and have fun, sassy Sagittarius!
Saturn has also been in your sign in the 1st house since 2014. You have probably grown and expanded your identity in some ways, but you also have been feeling quite conflicted. While you assert your independence, you also struggle with responsibility. Saturn is the planet of commitments, restrictions, and duties. This is quite the clash against your sign of being your fiery and free-spirited self. Over the past few years, you may have felt anxiety, depression, guilt, shame, or self-loathing. You are constantly conflicted between your ideals, your identity, and your tasks. Saturn in this house may have taken away your confidence, inhibiting you to have a strong sense of self. While there are many uncomfortable, and possibly negative, aspects of this alignment, it is necessary to help you grow and work out these inner issues so that you can create yourself anew. Saturn still remains one of our greatest teachers in the zodiac!
On the 20th, Saturn will move into your 2nd house. You can get excited now! This disciplinary father planet enters the house of money here, ruled by Taurus, and this alignment will remain until 2020. You will notice a strong desire to do the work necessary to make financial gains, and you will slowly apply yourself to set up these long-term goals. You will feel logical and practical, as Saturn in the 2nd house will encourage you to live a financially secure and comfortable lifestyle. You may even be a master planner over the next few years, making sure that you pay attention to fine details within the grander scheme of your life. While Saturn will also make you question your expenses, know that you deserve to buy yourself nice things sometimes! Overall, this aspect will make you feel more confident in your judgment, and it will bring a new perspective on wealth that will influence you to be more conservative. Saturn in this house will bring you into shorter term career goals, as you are expected to jump into a budding career over the next few years. This alignment will certainly be a welcomed change for you, lovely Sagittarius! You deserve it after all you have suffered through.
On the 9th, Mars enters your 12th house of the subconscious, ruled by Pisces. You might feel conflicted in terms of expressing yourself this month. You put your energy into helping others because you are trying to avoid your own problems. Mars is an extremely active planet, so you will do everything in your power to mask what lies beneath the surface. You may feel more passive-aggressive this month, in an attempt to dissuade others from finding out what you are feeling. You are predicted to feel more sensitive, although, you will also try to hide your sensitivity. You are a great friend and support to others, always offering guidance and love when people need it the most. The alignment will force you to confront your need to please others, and also open you up to the possibility of letting your guard down. It is important for you to believe in yourself and let those who love you help you, too! Don't be afraid of your emotions, and try to let your friends and family in on what is bothering you. You will always be independent, Sagittarius, but it is okay to be vulnerable sometimes!
Mercury enters your house in retrograde on the 3rd until the 23rd this month. This will further complicate the position of Mars, as the retrograde will make you question how you present yourself to others. It is okay not to be right all the time, and it is necessary to change your mind when you are feeling conflicted sometimes! Mercury encourages you here to loosen up, and not worry so much about what others think of you. Every sign will be a little off in their expression and communication this month, thanks to Mercury's influence. Trust in the process, and let yourself be as free as you truly are!
Venus will also be in your house this month. You will attract others with your natural charm and beautiful personality. This will feel effortless and completely natural. You will enjoy feeling physically attractive, and will appreciate this in others. Your appreciation for art and expression will soar this month, as you can truly see the beauty in everything. Your love life will be quite important to you, and you will try to find a new romantic partner, or commit even more to your current loved one, this month. There is little that can go wrong with this alignment, so you can certainly enjoy romance, beauty, and love connections during December, dear Sagittarius! Overall, because the planets are so concentrated in the beginning of your chart, you will do a lot of work on yourself and the personal aspects of your life this month. These alignments will help you build your identity and physical necessities to make way for greater things to come.
