As the month gets underway, your ruling planet Mercury is in your opposite sign of Sagittarius where it remains until December 17th. Sagittarius is the sign that rules your personal relationships and 1-to-1 interactions and this is good news for love and partnership in general.
In fact this month promises to be lively, sociable and potentially romantic. Pick up the pace if you want to meet new people, whether for love reasons or simply to hang out, have fun and find your tribe.
The fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) are prominent in the heavens not only this month but for the first half of 2015 as well and this is where the energy’s at. This is good news for you as being a Gemini, you’re at your best when you’re around other people, sharing ideas and jokes and generally enjoying a good rapport with others.
Aries rules friendship and groups, Leo rules new people and places and Sagittarius rules 1-to-1’s. So get on the phone and arrange some social dates, ask for an introduction if you’re looking for love and say ‘yes’ to any party invitations that come your way. Key dates for fun and romance are the 4th, the 6th, the 12th and the 14th.
It’s also a month when community matters so check out your local community and see if you can help with festivities or plans going on close to home. Pop in on the neighbours and make an effort to reach out to others and make a difference in someone’s life. The buzz of Christmas means a lot more than commercialism and it’s the connections between people that really matter.
Note also that Saturn’s move into Sagittarius on December 23rd equals commitment and a relationship may develop at a faster pace than even you could envisage. It’s a classic ‘quit or commit’ combination turning a casual relationship into a serious relationship overnight.
You do have some big decisions to make this month and it’s an important time to look at the year that’s past, see what you’re happy with, what you want to change and to focus on the year ahead and what next. Money and work are both under the cosmic spotlight for you and areas to consider carefully.
Saturn, the taskmaster of the heavens, has been in Scorpio and the sign that rules your everyday work, your routine and your health since October 2012. It’s a weighty planet that can make life hard going at times. Sometimes it represents a lack or the opposite a slog. You either have to work too hard or find work boring or the total opposite and you experience a period of unemployment twiddling your thumbs.
If one of these areas of your life has been a challenge, the good news is that Saturn is moving on and on December 23rd Saturn leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius. Admittedly Saturn dips back into Scorpio next year from mid-June to mid-September 2015 but the hard work is past and a new phase is about to begin that’s going to be easier and lighter with regard to your daily routine and your well-being. It’s time to put the fun factor back into whatever you do and that may include more flexibility or freedom.
Plus on the 17th, Mercury enters Capricorn signalling an important month for money matters, especially joint finances and shared resources. Capricorn rules all financial transactions that are shared, i.e. debts, mortgages, inheritance, investments, insurances, etc. Pluto has been in this sector of your chart for some years now so you’ve had to get to grips with any pressing money matters and at times you may have felt as if money is a dirty word.
Certainly money and power are linked in some way with Pluto in this sector of your chart and if you have been involved in any kind of battle or struggle over money, you may find that this flares up again mid-month. This is because of the Uranus-Pluto square which has dominated the heavens since June 2012. On December 15th these two planets clash for the sixth time and there will be one more meeting between the two, mid-March 2015.
The key date to note is the 22nd when there’s a New Moon in Capricorn and five planetary bodies stand next to one another in this one sector of your chart. This is where the focus is and adds intensity and urgency to money matters. The 22nd is a good date to take action and set some new intentions around money. Make a decision and stick to it. Sow seeds that will grow and flourish in 2015.
The last thing you want is for money to get in the way of enjoying the festivities and you need to be super careful on Christmas Day itself (25th) that you don’t get involved in an argument about money. If you know this is possible due to your personal situation, make a promise that you won’t talk about money at all and instead focus on having fun.
The two days after Christmas Day feel much more relaxed and there’s a kinder atmosphere. Forgiveness plays its part and you’re ready to dream up some creative ideas to enhance your own situation and find a solution to any potential money issue. New Years Eve (31st) lends itself to a quieter celebration and a chance to be grateful for all that you do have in your life. Focus on the positives as you raise a glass to welcome in the new year.
