Bohemian Horoscopes: December 2019.
Aries (March 21-April 20)
On December 2, Jupiter (the planet of good fortune and prosperity) charges into your career zone, for the first time in 12 years, which bodes well for a promotion, new job or lucky professional break sometime in 2020. So starting doing the preparation now! Then Jupiter links up with Uranus on the 15th and 16th, which is the ideal time to make an influential connection or initiate an exciting new business venture. Rams are natural entrepreneurs and December is definitely the month when fortune favors the bold and the brave.
Taurus (April 21-May 21)
Are you stuck in a safe and sensible rut? With Jupiter transiting into your travel zone (on December 2) foreign shores beckon over the next 12 months. So start organizing your passport and planning your itinerary now. It’s important to keep up to date with your international contacts. Who knows where they will lead? The Full Moon (on the 12th) shines a spotlight on personal and shared finances, plus power and trust issues. Saturn and Pluto also push you to take a good long look at your basic values, life philosophy and future aspirations.
Gemini (May 22-June 21)
Prosperity planet Jupiter jumps into your money-from-others zone on December 2. So (over the next year) you could benefit from a pay raise, inheritance, loan, bonus, divorce settlement, insurance claim, bumper tax return or superannuation payout. Just make sure you spend any windfall wisely. And are you having trouble with a relationship (of the romantic, platonic or business variety)? Creative communication and smart negotiation are the secrets to smooth partnerships mid-month, as you take the time to talk things through.
Cancer (June 22-July 23)
From December 2 onwards, a difficult relationship should gradually improve as auspicious Jupiter journeys through your love zone. You could go on a special holiday with your partner or enjoy a flirtatious fling with a sexy foreigner. But a joint venture (or a romantic partnership) needs to pass the Practicality Test, otherwise it won’t survive in the long term. So try to balance being idealistic with being realistic. Singles, with a plethora of potential partners beating a path to your door, take your time and choose wisely.
Leo (July 24-August 23)
Jupiter wanders into your well-being zone (on December 2) which will help you find a deliciously nutritious diet, a fun exercise program or a relaxation routine that you really enjoy. Then the Jupiter/Uranus trine (on the 15th and 16th) is fantastic for making a bold business move or an important career decision. Cat confidence is the rocket fuel that will get you where you want to go. Be inspired by the following words from Walt Disney: “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”
Virgo (August 24-September 23)
Over the coming year (courtesy of Jupiter and the solar eclipse) you’ll take up a sport or hobby, start a romance, proceed with a creative project or welcome a new addition to the family. Plus expect a bonanza of big celebrations (like graduations, engagements, weddings and milestone birthday parties). The Full Moon fires up your career zone, so a work issue could come to a head around December 12. Contributing your specific knowledge and versatile talents to a volunteer organization will also put a smile on your Virgo dial.
Libra (September 24-October 23)
On December 2, Jupiter joins the Sun, Saturn and Pluto in your domestic zone. So this month you could redecorate, house-sit, buy or sell real estate, move house, get a new housemate, start a business from home or renovate your present place so you have more space. But there will also be extra domestic duties and family responsibilities that you have to deal with. On the 11th, positive Venus/Saturn aspects encourage ambitious plans and you’re keen to impress others. But don’t promise more than you can comfortably deliver.
Scorpio (October 24-November 22)
Spontaneous Jupiter and unpredictable Uranus rev up your relationship zone. So be brave and take a chance on love! Attached Scorps, a stale relationship could be revived with better communication skills, a weekend getaway and a dash of romance. Singles, the sparks could fly with a lover from outside your comfort zone, someone who is not your usual type. But money matters look complicated, as the Full Moon stirs up your $$$ zones around December 12. Shrewd Scorpios have a good business brain, just make sure you’re using it.
Sagittarius (November 23-December 21)
On December 2, Jupiter (your power planet) joins Saturn and Pluto in your self-esteem zone. So it’s time to truly love yourself just the way you are, warts and all. Work on your weaknesses and learn from your mistakes. You also need to shake off other people’s expectations, and instead be the authentically real you. Draw inspiration from Sagittarian actor, martial artist and philosopher Bruce Lee: “Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself. Do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.”
Capricorn (December 22-January 20)
Pioneering Jupiter jumps into your sign on December 2 (for the first time in 12 years) where it joins serious Saturn and powerful Pluto. This celestial trio will teach you that, no matter how hard things are or how many roadblocks you encounter, you are the master/mistress of your divine destiny. Only you can motivate yourself into action, and then follow through with plenty of passion and purpose. Be inspired by martial artist, actor and philosopher Bruce Lee, who said, “To hell with circumstances, I create opportunities.”
Aquarius (January 21-February 19)
December is a terrific month to take up meditation or yoga (or some sort of metaphysical study) as Jupiter moves into your contemplation zone and broadens your spiritual perspective. Then the Full Moon stimulates your drama and eccentricity zones (around the 12th) and fires up your imagination, so you’re keen to get creative and express yourself in your own quirky Aquarian way. Be inspired by singer-songwriter Taylor Swift: “If you’re lucky enough to be different, don’t ever change.”
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
Jupiter and the solar eclipse encourage you to make magical wishes and set ambitious goals. Just make sure you surround yourself with a positive peer group who celebrate your successes and encourage your dreams. And avoid the Piscean tendency to procrastinate. Adventurous Jupiter makes a rare connection with intrepid Uranus on the 15th and 16th, so it’s the perfect time to be proactive about making your dreams come true. Your motto is from singer, songwriter and poet Jim Morrison: “The time to hesitate is through.”
Joanne Madeline Moore has worked as an actress and singer in Australia, studied macrobiotics and shiatsu in London, meditated at Stonehenge, explored the medinas of Marrakech, lived with gypsy poets in the caves above Granada (in Spain), and been blessed by a Balian priest during a lunar eclipse in Indonesia.
