Here is your astrological forecast for December, according to Alexandria Lettman at Bustle.com:


Aries & Aries Rising:
"Your aspirational approach to setting new career goals won’t be enough to steer you toward new heights in December. If you do not take the time to carefully examine your weaknesses, you won’t hit your benchmarks, Aries. Pay special attention to beliefs and fears that hold you back. Ease into December’s productive flow, and continue to tend to the building blocks of your growing dreams. It may sound boring, but the more time and effort you dedicate to the planning stages, the greater your success will be." 



Taurus & Taurus Rising:
"Though you may not feel confident in the progression of your love life, don’t let anxious feelings run amok. It’s not your job to worry about how the present might impact the future. Live in the moment, Taurus, and enjoy every second of affection, care, and intimate pleasure shared with your nearest and dearest. The more you allow yourself to open up about your deepest feelings, the more you will heal and attract the commitment you desire through your optimism and faith. Trust that your loved ones will nurture you in the right direction.

Gemini & Gemini Rising:
"Gemini, be careful about joint financial decisions made in December, especially if you are experiencing moments of frustration and uncertainty in your relationships. Getting involved in contractual obligations with a friend, frenemy, or lover will amplify your troubles as Mercury’s disruptive retrograde stirs up confusion from Dec. 13. The temptation to throw yourself completely into your work will offer momentary distractions and fill you with passion and purpose. Make sure that you assess potential risks when getting involved in heated workplace competition or a steamy office romance."

Cancer & Cancer Rising:
"A lack of confidence in your career will prompt you to consider whether your hard work is converting into desirable results. Don’t beat yourself with harsh self-critique, Cancer. A detour may be just what you need to gather inspiration and motivation. Your love life is heating up this December, and you may be enticed by an all-consuming romance. Don’t trust people too soon; premature attachments could lead to heartbreak if you and your date have different expectations."

Leo & Leo Rising:
"Moved by a deep desire to mend your relationships, you will offer those who have disappointed you a chance to redeem themselves. You don’t need to let down your guard completely in order to forgive, but you must be genuine in your intentions to rebuild bonds. Don’t agree to make up if you cannot release your attachment to the past. New whirlwind romances await and you will be glad you kept your standards high. Have fun while dating but don’t think too far into the future."

Virgo & Virgo Rising:
"Regrets may disturb your inner peace in December, challenging you to hold yourself accountable without being excessively harsh over your mistakes. Be kind to yourself as you process your feelings and assess whether matters are as serious as they seem. The dissolution of a dream may be the perfect opening for your next venture. Preoccupied with worries and doubt, you may struggle to share your perspective. Speak from the heart, and you will command a lot of respect." 

Libra & Libra Rising:
"As you begin a new, introspective journey, explore your changing attitudes and moral principles. Consider if your previous stances still ring true for you. Tempted to spoil yourself with quiet luxuries as Venus reigns over your financial life from Dec. 4, you must put your needs first, ignoring fears of being perceived as selfish. Find breakthroughs with the feelings that prevent you from seeing your potential, and you could achieve satisfying professional milestones."

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising:
"Good news, Scorpio! Passionate Venus arrives in your zodiac sign on Dec. 4, bestowing you with a powerful and seductive magnetism. Use your allure to your advantage and leave a lasting impression on the people you meet, charming them with your mystery and sex appeal. As the month progresses, you may reconsider whether you have made mature decisions concerning your finances and self-care. Avoid taking an overly optimistic approach to spending when your sight is set on lavish experiences and adventures." 

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising:
"Finding the right words to articulate your feelings could put pressure on your relationships. Handle love-related matters privately; you may find it easier to address problems without the influence of your surroundings. If you do not feel understood, avoid letting moments of difficulty sour your relationships entirely. On Dec. 12, the new moon in your sign offers some relief and a boost of optimism and confidence. Trust yourself enough to initiate the process of healing and closure. Others will follow your lead."

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising:
"If you feel unprepared for the challenges life throws in your direction, take this as a sign to slow down, rest, and reflect. Allow yourself to authentically open up to new friends, and keep your eye open for romantic opportunities through mutual contacts. December also brings huge potential for finding peace with a frenemy if you are willing to put aside your differences and show compassion."

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising:
"A sudden burst of inspiration and aspiration could whisk you away into unrealistic fantasies. Be careful not to set yourself up for failure; make plans on solid ground, and seek guidance from those who truly know what they’re talking about. Moments in the spotlight will teach you to protect your privacy. Re-evaluate the information you share about yourself, in person and online, to avoid obsessive admirers who project their jealousy and negativity onto you.

Pisces & Pisces Rising
"Deep reconsiderations over your career and releasing attachments to past relationships will tempt you toward extreme solutions for temporary feelings. Catching a flight or signing up for a new course of study might not resolve your troubles. As your thirst for discovery grows more intense, find fulfillment through riveting conversations with people who have different points of view and deep dives into philosophy and your personal values. Your exploration could pull you in an exciting direction."
