If there's one celestial body you should keep an eye on in December, Leo, it would be your old friend the moon. Yes, we know you see it every night, but its movements during this month are going to have a powerful effect on you. In particular, the full moon in Cancer on December 22nd is going to be the point of maximum focus and clarity for you. This is a great power to have and one that will serve you better than super strength or being faster than a speeding bullet. That clarity is going to guide you through January 2020 and beyond.
Clarity is going to serve you well when it comes to the people in your life. It doesn't matter if we're talking about a longtime partner, close family members, co-workers you see every day, or that crush you've longed after for ages: you're going to start seeing people very clearly - warts and all - and will need to respond to these visions quickly. Don't worry: you're not going to suddenly discover that everyone you know is a vampiric monster. But you might see people you've long admired in a slightly more human light. Or people that you've ignored for ages (or dismissed outright) are full of qualities that impress you more than you would have expected them to. You're going to be seeing the world with brand new eyes, so don't be startled by the experience. Look for the 8th, the 14th, and the 20th to be prime nodal times in your experiences with people. There will be powerful ley line convergences happening at these times that make human interactions potentially fraught.
Work is going to continue to be a struggle until the middle of the month, at which point any stresses you've been dealing with will start to trickle down slowly. Is there someone that's been a nuisance or rival? They may leave the company, leave your department, or just settle down to the point of being much quieter in your presence. Whatever the reason, just enjoy the peace. Has your workload been especially stressful? You'll either see that abate some or you'll reach a mental point of adjusting to it where it's no longer overwhelming you. All the more reason as December starts to wrap up for you to consider whether or not you want to stay where you are. That last week in December is the perfect time for you to pause and reflect on this. In fact, pencil in some time during that week when you can be alone, sit and stare out the window or watch a burning fire, perhaps have a hot beverage of your choice, and reflect on the year that has passed. You'll particularly want to look at how your job has gone and if it's given you everything you'd like. If you're finding that the answer is no, it's time to make some plans.
Financially you'll want to lay low during this month. This is not the time to make any big purchases for yourself, nor to do any impulse buying. If anything, you want to squirrel away as much money as possible into your savings and retirement. If you don't have a side gig, get one of some sort: sell stuff on Etsy, pick up a bartending gig, start driving for Uber, what have you. You'll want to make sure your numbers are up as you're starting 2020. But please, don't skimp when it comes to holiday gifts for your family. Don't go crazy, but be generous.
December is a time for reflection for most people, but the added benefit of lunar clarity for you, Leo, means you really want to take advantage of that time. Make sure you have that quiet moment mentioned earlier and really take stock of where you are in your life. Make sure this happens by the 28th at the absolute latest. That clarity may shock you, but wouldn't you rather go into 2020 with, well, 20 20 vision? Of course, you would. And once you've evaluated yourself, relax, sit in that easy chair, and enjoy the coming new year.
