December Horoscopes 2019

Hello, I’m Jodie Forrest, and YOU are about to hear your Horoscope / Sun sign’s / Stardate for this month. We’ll call it your “Stardate”—can you tell that I was a Trekkie?
Your Stardate / horoscope has something I've added just for you I've added your Theme Song for the Month... Enjoy your Stardate.

Aries: March 20 – April 20  Welcome to the Month of Itchy Feet ! Or an itchy brain, accompanied by a strong distaste for Shoulds, Oughts and S’posed Tos, and the sound of breaking rules . . . That’s all well and good, Aries. You need some adventures and some room to stretch your wings and do something that’s out of the ordinary for you, or out of the ordinary for everybody. Trust those impulses. At the same time, be aware that you have two possible pitfalls. One, keep your temper; sometimes the extra energy of such a time can make us prone to irritability, particularly if we’re not sending and following that energy where it wants to do. Two, pace yourself. If you dive so deeply into a project that you forget to eat, sleep or commune with your significant other, sooner or later your treating yourself like a machine will catch up with you. Also on the table for you this month are opportunities for heartfelt, meaningful and transformative dialog with your mate. Don’t miss those chances because of spending too many hours charging full speed ahead. The closer your S.O. feels to you, the more secure he or she will feel about the hours you want to spend absorbed in something besides the relationship. Demi Lovato, Confident.

Taurus: April 21 until May 21 You have a temporary reprieve in the urgency of your recent need to be completely yourself, but that doesn’t mean that the imperative has disappeared; it will be around approximately another seven years. Maybe you could use the current reprieve to look carefully at what, psychologically speaking, may have been making your independence difficult or complicated to declare. Perhaps it’s fear of isolation or even abandonment, or of being misunderstood in some fundamental way. Well, benevolent Jupiter’s presence in the sector of your chart related to the deepest forms of intimacy, and to psychological self-awareness, can help you assuage those fears. So can Mercury, Lord of communication, and Venus, Lady of relationships, heading into your sector of friends and partners. Explaining yourself should be easier than usual this month and into early January. So can receiving and processing important information from your S.O., particularly if you speak one-on-one--dealing with groups may need more clarity, directness and maintenance of boundaries than usual. Kelly Clarkson, Breakaway.

Gemini: May 21 – June 21  First, you need to spend as much time this month as possible imagining that you're someone else, specifically, one of your most significant others. What's your lover's or your friend's or your partner's point of view, and how thoroughly can you understand it? The deeper the comprehension that you have of your friend's feelings and motivations, the easier it will be to reach a compromise. Fortunately, you're more than usually curious about and tolerant of other people just now, and you'll enjoy learning about them. However, you, too, Gemini, are only human, and sometimes the more subjective we are about someone, the more complicated it can be to communicate with him or her. If you don't feel as if you have a useful set of mediation skills in this particular instance, then you might look for a positive, upbeat person who does, and ask for feedback from him or her about how to conduct this important conversation, by the 22nd if possible. Don't let an authority figure who's either stressed, has control issues, or has no actual authority over you talk you out of settling whatever you need to settle. Sonic Youth, Disconnection Notice.

Cancer: June 21 – July 23  Permit me to enact, sort of, two of the voices in your inner conversations. The first one, who may be related to your past, says "I could have dealt with a certain situation more skillfully. I didn't do it well enough. Therefore I am completely incompetent." The second voice, who may be related to you today, says "I wish I could have done better with X, but there could be some relevant factors that weren't under my control." Such as? you might ask. "I'd had no training for it yet," says the second voice; or "other people's incompetence got in the way," or "no one could have done it with the kind of equipment I had." The second voice might add, "I think you could use this event to teach you what you need to learn next. In fact, you might even run that question past some knowledgeable people you can trust." Listen to the second voice, Cancer, no matter what. Anyone, friend, lover or new flame, who tries to shout it down in favor of the first voice is not someone you need or want in your life. I know you're a gentle soul, but it's fine to stand up to someone who, consciously or unconsciously, might not have your best interests at heart. Rascal Flatts, Stand.

Leo: July 23 – August 23  Hey, Leo, you could have an intensively creative month, a romantic one, one chockful of appreciating the arts in whatever form appeals to you, or a month that's just plain fun.

Whichever kind or kinds you choose, remember that deciding to acquire skills you may not have is a better choice beating yourself up for lacking them. Sail through December while allowing as little as possible to get under your skin, and take as much time off over the holiday as you can. Yours is not to win or lose, it's to have a stellar, heart-satisfying month, whether you spend it lost in some new music by your favorite band, telling ghost stories at your tweens' slumber party, dancing with your main squeeze or on the road somewhere. Avoid people who are passive-aggressive, overly needy, or drama queens / kings, and I suspect you'll have a pleasant month. Happy, Pharrell Williams.

Virgo: August 23 – September 23  Some quiet, unstructured time or some time spent alone in December would be good for you, on the one hand, although some time with relatives whom you would have chosen to be your relatives, regardless of bloodlines, would be good for you, too.

How about a bit of both? Look at old photos, eat until you’re comfortably full, go on an excursion together, whatever makes you feel close to your “roots” in a pleasant way. Meanwhile, a significant other may be irritable or stressed, possibly because he or she doesn’t have all the facts about an annoying situation. No one has the right to run your life, even for only a few days. Enlighten this person without either letting him or her run the show or claim to be more helpless than is actually the case. You may get grumbling if you put your foot down now, but you’ll avoid a stickier situation later. Mercury, Lord of Communication, and Venus, Lady of Relationships (and Tact) can help you be as silver-tongued a devil as you need to be. Some compromise between what’s fun at the moment and what’s more practical in the long run is at hand. Heart, Even It Up

Libra: September 23 – October 23 What you could use, my dear, is a long, rambling, solve-the-world’s-problems sort of conversation. Your brain needs a treat once in a while; you’re an Air sign. You haven't had enough interesting dialogs lately, nor have you learned or done enough that's new to you. I know you probably have responsibilities at home and some possibly ill-defined challenges at work. Your partner may be acting contrary and as if he or she needs a bit of space. That’s actually a great time to go have one of those philosophical conversations, when you both need a small break. It doesn’t have to be anything drastic. How about a girls’ night out followed by a breakfast out, too?
A camping trip? Visiting a museum that you and your best friend have been wanting to see, or taking in a lecture? I’m not talking about avoidance or escapism, just a refreshing change of scene complete with something to wonder about. Think of it as an intellectual mini-adventure. Junior Senior, Move Your Feet.

Scorpio: October 23 – November 22 The good news: this December, you're primed for pleasant times with friends or with family, or in pursuit of your art, or maybe even all three. The bad news: you could still have a crisis of confidence about whether you deserve it, your finances, or your competence. Here’s the short version of the remainder of your December forecast: you do deserve it, so go enjoy yourself and see what might evolve from your having fun. The long version starts with a question: what part of you is feeling down on yourself? Consider that for a while. When you think you might know where that insecurity is coming from, ask yourself: how old do I feel when I'm doubting myself? Wait for the answer to surface. If none appears, try asking yourself again tomorrow, and add When have I felt inadequate, underinformed, or as if I might have overshot my mark? When have fear, anger or mixed messages accompanied those feelings? If you could talk it over with someone who knew you when you were younger, then you might gain some helpful perspective. Or, again, you could just relax and restore yourself over the break. Fiona Apple, Extraordinary Machine

Sagittarius: November 22 - December 21 It’s a month of overlapping new beginnings for you, Sadge.

Your birthday marks the personal start of another year. Jupiter’s ingress into Sagittarius last month began about a year of your ruling planet’s inspiring and invigorating visit to your Sun sign, an event that happens every 12 years, so it’s an important year for personal renewal. Chances for it will arise, some of them legitimate, others the real-world version of vaporware: empty, at least for you. As the song says, don’t underestimate yourself. Still, investigate those offers before you decide to say Yes or No. Mercury enters Sagittarius on December 12th, marking both the full end of its current retrogradation, and a chance to exercise your smarts for a little over the next three weeks from that date—learn or teach something, write or read something. What? Follow your curiosity! And there’s a new Moon in your sign on the 15th, triggering the other beginnings and helping you figure out how you feel about them. That’s a great day for a small personal ritual: letting go of what’s come to an end for you, and inviting in what’s new and beneficial, both for the upcoming year and the next 12 of them. Some people do an annual life-review and ritual on the Solstice; if you’re one of them, you might make your list on the 15th regardless. Dr. John, You Might Be Surprised

Capricorn: December 22 - January 22 Communicate clearly, my friend, and ask others to do so as well. That applies to your family, your significant other, your colleagues, or in a group context. Leaving things at all fuzzy could lead to disagreements that might have been avoided if you and others had spoken their minds. However, the first person with whom you need to communicate clearly is yourself. Be sure you’re not mistaking wishful thinking, magical thinking, or your assumptions for what’s actually happening in and around you. It’s complicated, because you’re capable of writing some uplifting and enchanting poetry, prose, non-fiction or lesson plans at the moment—and you will be for about seven more years, so there’s no need to feel rushed. I suspect you may also be feeling stressed, apprehensive, challenged or annoyed about something at the moment.
Pay attention to what’s going on whenever you feel irritated or anxious, and to any dreams with that theme.  Maybe you need an apology. Maybe somebody else needs one. Again, aim for clarity, and don’t hesitate to ask for feedback while you’re assessing what could be rubbing you the wrong way. Matt and Kim, Let’s Go.

Aquarius: January 20 – February 18  Yes, you can! Some recent events may have been a bit hard on your self-esteem. You’ll be  unusually sensitized in that area for a few more years, so you may not be taking all the relevant circumstances into account. Now is not the time to give up. Now is the time to keep going, to make your own voice heard. It’s also a good time to remember that you don’t have to do everything alone. People quite willing to help you may be in a career or public setting, in groups to which you more or less belong, or both. Keep your eyes peeled. They might be visionaries. They could be smart, detail-oriented, or have useful information. They may be perceptive enough to call you on your own self-doubt—gently, we hope. Even if you get some tough love, listen. It’s another perspective, not an order. U2, Walk On.

Pisces: February 18 – March 20  Opportunity is likely knocking, Pisces. In your career, perhaps, or in chances to travel or learn, or even to reinvent yourself. That’s the good news. At least before the 12th, however, you’d do well to get specific information about these opportunities before you commit to anything. There are two things to avoid this month: one, remaining underinformed; and two, chickening out. Tip: the more clear you are about what you passionately want in your future, the easier it will be to sort through whatever the Fates may send your way. Remember, too, that you don’t need anyone else’s approval of your plans. You’re also overdue for some fun, my friend, so make the holidays as relaxing or romantic as possible. And break out your art supplies, your guitar, or that poem you haven’t finished, okay? Creativity flourishes when we have more “down” time or a change of pace. Yes, Future Times Rejoice
