December 2017 Monthly Horoscope for Taurus
The majority of planets are forecasted to be in the upper half of your chart this month, dear Taurus. All of the planets will be in the upper half of your chart starting on the 9th. On the 14th, the Moon will also be in the southern hemisphere and will remain here until the 27th of this month. These positions will manifest as growth in your career sector and successful achievements. You will be more concerned with your objectives in your professional life and social life, as this hemisphere is all about your outward focus. Your personal and emotional life will take a back seat this month, which is a welcomed change for you!
On the 9th, Mars moves into your 7th house of partnerships. This relates to one-on-one relationships of all kinds, such as business, romantic, friendships, and even enemy relationships. Mars in this house will make you feel more dominant and controlling of others, but not necessarily in a negative way. Mars encourages you to take charge when it comes to making decisions here, as a leader, and maybe even an aggressor. If you find yourself getting too feisty, take a step back before you create competition or hostility between you and your partners. You may feel impatient in the workplace, encouraging others to pick up the slack and get projects done on your deadlines. In your personal life, you will be more controlling at home, with family and loved ones. This is not the time to resolve arguments or disagreements, as you will find a way to win no matter what! Regardless, you can use Mars' energy for good this month, to take action where no one else can. This alignment also teaches you how to compromise, even if it may be in hindsight.
Since last month, Jupiter has been in your 7th house as well, and will remain here until next year. You will expand your social circle, and these individuals may bring with them material abundance to share! You will have pleasant company over the next year, and it is a great time to have fun with friends and new acquaintances. If you are thinking about marriage or deeper commitments to loved ones, Jupiter's luck will ensure that you have a bountiful and harmonious connection with your partner. You may be entering into new money soon, whether it is through inheritance, financial mergers, or a bonus in your income. Enjoy this alignment, lovely Taurus, for it will bring you great luck and success for an entire year! On the other hand, your financial planet, Mercury, will be in retrograde in Sagittarius from the 3rd to the 23rd of this month. Even though you will be coming into money very soon, retrograde periods are notoriously challenging, given unexpected payments, bills, and expenses. It is wise not to spend a lot of money right now, even though you have the propensity to overspend in this alignment. Try to do any holiday shopping earlier in the month, or preferably have it done by the end of November.
Venus will be in your 8th house starting on the 1st, and will remain here until the 25th of this month. If you are a single Taurus, you may not be so interested in dating during December, as this alignment encourages you to think about the bigger picture of partnership. You will be more attracted to those who are financially secure and who are also emotionally balanced. If you are in a relationship, your partner may see a surge of cash flow or become financial independent over the course of the month. You will definitely channel your deeper, sexier side, as this house rules extremely masculine and feminine energy. You and your partner are sure to connect more intimately, but not on a superficial level at all. You will both see each other's souls during this aspect. This aspect truly cuts to the core of the matter! You will be a deep, soulful person this month, and Venus will encourage you to be your most authentic self. You may also merge finances with your partner, as it is a good time to make long-term commitments and set goals for the future. Venus enters your 9th house of expansion, philosophy, and higher learning on the 25th of this month. You will see new and beautiful ways to learn about something you have a passion for. Venus encourages you to find that inner peace inside of yourself to get in touch with what you truly care about. You may also feel more independent from your partner during the last week of December, and you will encourage them to also explore what is important to them outside of your relationship. Venus is loving and the 9th house is all about freedom. You will enjoy this alignment until mid-January!
On the 20th, Saturn enters his natural home in Capricorn, your 9th house of expansion. You will feel more in touch with how your work relates to your deeper desires in life. Saturn's reign in your 10th house will remain for the next 2.5 years, so your professional path will definitely be an ongoing trend for a while! You will be very focused on achieving your long term goals and accomplishments, but may realize that your career has limitations. This house is all about growing outside of your comfort zone. If you are looking for a new job, this time will serve as learning about greater responsibilities within your chosen field. Saturn may push you out of one job sector and into another, as you desire higher learning and new knowledge at this time. The latter part of December will merely get the ball rolling for this new path in life, and it may also manifest outside of your profession.
Overall, your career path is forging ahead into new beginnings. You are quite accomplishment and goal focused this month, and this will continue to be a trend for you until next year. The Universe wants you to enjoy your freedom, success, and social partnerships, lovely Taurus!
