ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Hey Aries, Venus is in Scorpio for the duration of December. Usually Aries and Scorpio are touted as being a combustible combination, a combination of signs that rarely get along. Not true. You and Scorpio have a silent understanding. You both possess an inner passion that surpasses that of any of the other signs. The goddess of love is going to heighten your senses – all of them – especially during the first week of the month. From the middle to the end of the month, a combination of Mars, Jupiter and Pluto will activate both the areas of your life where you hide away from the world, and the sector of your public persona. By the end of the month, you’ll be in demand with the public, and you will also be one hot tomale inside where it is warm and toasty. No combination could be better for bringing in the New Year. If this combination of planets takes on a serious tone for you, it will be involving potential conflicts between your image at work/in the outside world, and your life and personality at home. It could become intense, so do some deep breathing and balance things wisely.
YOUR KEYS FOR 2008: This time last year, your financial situation may have been something totally different than what it has become. On January 1st, your New Year’s outlook reveals the need to tie up loose purse strings and make a new financial strategy. In love, you should open yourself up to new experiences altogether, or at the very least, take an entirely new and different approach regarding a current or past romantic partner.
The key is to retreat and take care of yourself first, and you’ll attract a whole new type of love.
(April 20-May 20)
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Take another good look out into that crowd. Do you see someone you want to get to know? You should. Your mirror/partnership house holds the Goddess of love for the entire month of December. Mars is tricky though, so you may miss something the first time. This also goes for communications between you and your inner circle. Take time to hear what they are really saying to you. Staying close to home when you go out to socialize may seem very tempting, as you are also feeling the effects of a backward Mars in your zone of movement. Do not stay too close to home out of shyness, however, because it would be a shame to waste that Venus energy.
YOUR KEYS FOR 2008: A new opportunity to study and experience something foreign, and possibly something that is a little taboo, makes its way into your world in 2008 (if it already hasn’t!). You might even feel a pull toward changing your personal philosophies on subjects pertaining to religion, sex, and money. There is nothing wrong with learning. In fact you will do a lot of learning about these subjects in 2008, either through experiences or books. The key is open-mindedness. Open yourself up to exploration and flex your intellect.
(May 21 – June-21)
You are going to love giving this month, Gemini – that’s right, giving – and you have the power to heal someone in some way, by your kindness and generosity. Every extra effort you make this month will be noticed and appreciated, especially by someone who is having a hard time. You might not even know what a difference you have made in his or her life just by being thoughtful. Rest assured: It will be returned. Mars will see to that. Pass some of your extraordinary energy around. You have a chance from the middle of the month on to meet someone whose chemistry is so interlocked with yours that you could be walking into walls (so to speak) by year’s end. So it is no surprise to hear what your key in 2008 will be…
YOUR KEYS FOR 2008: Partnerships that are deep and long lasting. You have ample opportunity in 2008 to cement ties with people that will last a lifetime. The energy started to appear in November, actually, and remains a signature for you. The key is self-reflection. Deal with every person you meet as if they are here to reflect your own strengths back to you. You will be meeting people who are your mirror image in some way, all year long.
(June 22 – July 23)
CANCER (June 22-July 23)
Progress has been made lately in some areas of your life, but you may feel as if some of that progress is being undone. If you or your partners are reverting back to old habits and old ways, don’t take it to heart. You have Venus moving into your sector of romance and creativity this month, so she should be able to help direct some loving energy in the right direction. Trust that setbacks in your relationships with yourself and others are only temporary and above all do not be hard on yourself! You have been entrusted with the often impossible task of caring for people, more so than any other sign in the zodiac. You are really to be commended for all of your efforts in 2007.
YOUR KEYS FOR 2008: Second chances. Your partnership point in your New Year’s chart has been inundated with heavy energy from Pluto and Jupiter. They are dancing over your self-esteem in the area of relationships with all kinds of people. And guess what? They are whipping up a plan for improvements in that area of your life. Stay positive, accept the sweeping changes that occur involving the people in your life, and experience that there are really such things as second chances.
(July 23 – August 22)
LEO (July 23- Aug 22)
Write down your dreams this month, Leo, because they will bring you some very true (and maybe some startling) pieces of information regarding what you want out of lovers, why you want what you want from them, and what purpose these people are actually serving in your life. Actually, you might want to start and dream journal and continue to use it since lots of creative ideas will be pulsing around your brain. You wouldn’t want to miss out on what you can achieve by listening to your own inner voice. The very last week of the month is all about your heart growing fonder, and you may not have to look much farther than right in front of you to know who the most special person in your life is.
YOUR KEYS FOR 2008: People who pull you in new directions. You will be moving away from old patterns in relationships. Any areas of false dependency will be replaced by a new sense of independence and a true sense of balanced give and take. This should be your mantra for the New Year: “I completely and only take on loving, creative and fair relationships wherein both parties are treated justly.” I know how Leos are, and I am warning you: don’t fight the forward movement. Go with the flow – stubbornness is futile in the hands of the planet Pluto! And since I also know how that the fabled “Leo vanity problem” is mostly just a façade, the key is going to be that you use some of that selfless love you have inside of you on yourself, not just on others. Happy New Year.
(August 23 – Sept 22)
VIRGO (Aug 23- Sept 22)
The month of December is best spent participating in group events right in your own neighborhood, Virgo. That is where you will find a beautiful Venus – Mars combination in water signs lighting up your horoscope. Virgos appreciate beauty in the same way that Scorpios do, on a sensual level. Cancereans and Virgos are capable of feeling under toe of emotion that pulls them to want to serve and help other people. Both of those energies are heightened this month for you. And then, be sure that you mean what you say and say what you mean in the second half of the month when communications between you and your romantic interests (and in any situation that concerns children, as well), have the power to become cemented in stone. In other words, you can’t take it back.
YOUR KEYS FOR 2008: Surprises in relationships. This theme started last month and is going to continue through 2008. Finding out things you never knew or suspected about your partners is bound to happen. You have the dubious distinction of having Saturn in your sign. Fortunately, this planet is lucky for you in the romance sector IF you are able to let go and let Uranus shake up your world. Your key is to accept change as the natural path to perfection, be honest with yourself about what perfection is, and don’t hold onto the imperfect out of fear.
(Sept 23 - October 23)
LIBRA (Sept 23- Oct 23)
Luck comes at you through professional and work partners this month, Libra. These people see you shine. It is ok to let your feelings be known to the outside world for the first half of this month because your emotions will be worn on your sleeve. Your secrets are safe with the ones you love. If you are looking for a mentor, or even just a new and exciting person that you can learn from, look to someone who knows how to make money from home. Keep your sense of humor at the end of the month when communications between you and your parents, or you and the person you share children with, are highlighted. Perceived conflicts are resolved quickly.
YOUR KEYS FOR 2008: Flexibility is the theme for next year. You need to remain open minded in general, and be open to new ideas concerning relationships. The people who you thought you would likely be attracted to are not necessarily the types you will be looking at in the coming year, even though you will feel nostalgia for the way things used to be. It is all about moving forward without giving up everything you treasure from the past. The transition from the old you to the new you should be quite effortless, and enjoyable. Your key is to remember that when you evolve to the next level, you take everything you have learned with you.
(October 24 – Nov 21)
SCORPIO (Oct 24- Nov 21)
Venus, the goddess of love, will be in your sign all month and will make a fluid angle to planets which cause you to have, “lightning bolt” moments of intuition even more precise the ones you normally have. Quick decision-making is your forte this month in matters of the heart and you will surprise yourself with the philosophical wisdom you possess. The insights that you gain about your usual approach to love and partnerships may change the course of your search for fulfillment in relationships in general. Toward the end of the month, you will reevaluate all of the new ideas you are mulling over, and you will find at least one that you will become permanent. The middle of the month is a good time to plan a trip to a place you have never visited before.
YOUR KEYS FOR 2008: Equally intense feelings in more than one direction, or for more than one person. You are going to be able to focus your attention and affections on more than one person, place or thing at a time in 2008. You, more than any other sign, have both the fluidity and the dedication to make a parallel existence work. You can move like a Gemini when you want to, and you have the staying power of a Taurus as well. The keys are honesty and good judgment. Don’t take on more than you can handle, and be sure to use this power to do good in your world.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22- Dec 21)
It is a little crowded in your sign for most of December. If your decision-making ability seems to have taken a hiatus and confusion reigns, (especially when it comes to money, and your sex life), then try to ride it out until the end of the month. The intensity level does not drop but some of your choices become more concrete. There is a very strong burst of energy in your sign this month that may or may not be all flowers and joy, depending on your circumstances. It would be wise to refrain from making any rash decisions or assumptions until after the 25th, especially where your closest allies and your partners are concerned. Many communications will be brutally honest and lots can get lost in translation. If people seem to be hiding something from you it is better off that you wait till the smoke and mirrors clear before you make accusations, or get upset. On a more positive note, your creativity and your power to make your mark on the world will be at its peak this month. Make the most of the opportunities for personal growth that will come your way.
YOUR KEYS FOR 2008: A welcome release. If you feel that you have been tumbling in a washing machine over the past few years, (or longer), then get ready for a flick of the off switch in 2008. Or at least you’ll be reset on a more gentle cycle. The past several years have not been light and airy for Sagittarians (nor for people with Sagittarius rising or for people with major planets in your sign. In other words, Pluto has had his way with many people who have both strong and subtle Sagittarian connections in their birth charts). Pluto is slowly creeping out of your sign. Perhaps in 2008, you’ll be able to take that long, cleansing breath you have been longing for. Besides, you begin 2008 with Venus entering your sign. For you, there is no better place for the goddess of love to be.
(Dec 22 – January 19 )
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22- Jan 19)
Going over and over current romantic dilemmas is not going to make you any calmer or relaxed, but it certainly might bring up some long-repressed memories and issues that have kept you from moving forward with your love life. Venus moves into a place where you can certainly use the action. It is a fun place where you will have opportunities to meet attractive people within groups and in social environments. However, don’t let lingering questions about someone’s loyalty hold you back. Believe it or not you already have enough information and enough to go on in order to make your leap to the next level in your life. And what a leap it is going to be!
YOUR KEYS FOR 2008: Let go of your fears and have faith that you will make the right decisions. You are the next place where Pluto is going to set up shop and his sojourn in your sign begins in 2008. For humanity, he will crash down the walls of limiting beliefs that we have all built up around us. For you personally he will do the same thing, but he will also give you tremendous courage with each brave step forward. Capricorns have some of the most penetrating minds in the zodiac. So much so, that you drive yourselves crazy thinking all the time. Just learn to let that all go. Seek a calmer set of relationships with people who have earned how to transcend melodrama. They will be able to help you handle anything you choose to do battle with over the next several years. If you remain totally honest with yourself at all times, the people with whom you bond yourself to over the next several years will be with you indefinitely.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
AQUARIUS (Jan 20- Feb 20)
Prepare to meet a person you can work with, and have a romantic connection with, Aquarius. It is Venus on your destiny point which will not only manifest for you, but will also make you oh-so-delectable to the public this month. Get out and flaunt it. Your personal magnetism and the intense sensual energy that you are giving off will peak around the third week of the month. Don’t get too many stars in your eyes and you won’t walk into any walls. You’ll likely have some very romantic and, um, sexy dreams in December (both while awake and asleep).
YOUR KEYS FOR 2008: Friends who make you feel good. You are advised to take advantage of the people who are about to walk into your life in 2008. You begin the year with Mars briefly revisiting your romantic place, and with Venus entering the place where your friends reside. These are two wonderful places where connections are made between you and like-minded people. Don’t settle for anything less than bonding with people who share your unique visions. Mercury and Neptune are lining up to give you plenty of those unique visions this coming year, and it will take these special people to help you sort everything out.
(Feb 19 – March 20)
PISCES (Feb 21- March 20)
Looking for a career change? Then this is the month to go for it. Looking for a change in your romantic life? Then wait till January. You’re likely to remain right where you are relationship wise this month, but that will definitely be to your advantage as important issues get hashed out among partners who have their own sordid business to attend to. Have you ever met someone who you thought was nice, (because you think everyone is nice, anyways), and come to find out they weren’t all you thought they were? You might run into a few of those this month. Don’t fret, just enjoy the eggnog and let them reap their karma. And don’t you dare try to save them. It is really fun to watch someone walk into a tree sometimes, honest! (You always come out smelling like the sweetest rose in the bunch anyhow).
YOUR KEYS FOR 2008: Really putting what you have learned over the last few years to use. It is likely that you have had a little bit of an education in using your mind to sort out the impressions that your feeling nature is in charge of soaking in (in other words, you may have had some practice in using common sense to judge the world around you instead of always kindly getting kicked around). Now you are ready for the next step and will get the opportunity to share your knowledge with others. Peers who have had issues with emotional turmoil will seek out your advice. Career develops new meaning to you and you will attract a lot of positive attention when you go out and allow the world to hear how intelligent and funny you are.
