While December will keep you busy in many areas during December, Cancer, there is one area in particular where things will get especially interesting: love. Why now? There's a lot of activity in the stars this month, all of it directed towards you. The work of Venus, in particular, is very strong and very focused in your direction. This is a wonderful bounty, but also means that things could become very emotionally overwhelming. It's worth being prepared for that so you aren't completely overtaken by the forces heading your way. Gird yourself and prepare to ride the waves of the heart.
With Venus travelling from house to house this year, her wake leaves many people feeling emotionally exhausted. This is because the connections you have in your life are vibrating strongly. The ‘love' we referred to earlier doesn't just mean romantic love: it refers to the connection you have with anyone on this planet. This can include friends, co-workers, or even strangers you see every day in your neighborhood. Every single bond that you have - no matter how thin - is going to be pulsing in December and the power of those pulses is going to remind you that those people are there and that they are important. You may, in fact, find that a number of people are going to pop out of the woodwork convinced that they are an important part of your life, even if that's not the case. This would be that ‘overwhelmed' part that we mentioned. Make sure you set the boundaries you want, allowing yourself to be available, but taking time for yourself as well.
That love is going to extend (in its own odd way) into your work life as well. No, you're not going to start an affair at the office, but people are going to start saying how they really think of you, and the vast majority of those opinions are going to be positive. This might be a lot to take in, but do take it all in. Use this time to triangulate your position at your job and see if you're where you'd like to be. You might find the answer is no, even with this love fest going on. That's okay: if ever there's a time to think about moving on from a job, it's when things are going really well.
Financially you'll want to lay low during December, spending as little as you can get by with. This is a time to avoid major purchases if you can help it. And certainly, no large scale impulse buys for you. If you can, save every extra penny that comes your way. You may want to consider a second job or a side gig of some sort. The important thing is to increase the amount you're putting away, even by a little bit. This is going to serve you well when January rolls around. But please, with all this thriftiness, don't skimp on presents for the holidays (if that's your thing).
This could be a very overwhelming month for you, Cancer. While everyone uses December to pause and reflect, it's going to be downright mandatory for you. You're going to want to pick a day for you to truly have an abundance of ‘you' time. If you need a date, we recommend the 23rd. This should be completely quiet: no phones or other electronics. Get yourself to a comfortable spot and stare out the window. Even better, if you have a working fireplace, get that roaring fire going. Pour yourself your adult beverage of choice and then sit and stare. You've had a lot going on this year and you deserve to take a load off. Think about everything you've accomplished and become in the past twelve months. Then turn your gaze toward the future and think about what you'd like to be. 2020 is a good time for maximum change. You might find that you want to take part in a lot of it yourself. Start your planning and get ready to move first thing on January 1st. There's a lot of love for you from the stars, Cancer. Take it and run with it.
