At the beginning of December, Mercury retrograde enters Scorpio, announcing some difficult days for business partnerships and investments. Happily, on December 6th Mercury is again direct in Scorpio, helping us to fix previous mistakes. Starting from December 12th, with Mercury in Sagittarius, we regain self-confidence and optimism.

December 1st: Venus in Libra opposite Uranus in Aries

December 1st: MERCURY RETROGRADE ENTERS SCORPIO – this is not a good time for major investments or for starting business partnerships. Wait until December 6rg! „The individual investor should act consistently as an investor and not as a speculator“ (Ben Graham)

December 2nd: VENUS ENTERS SCORPIO – you tend to have an „all or nothing“ approach in relationships. You are very passionate, but you must learn to overcome jealousy. „The jealous are troublesome to others, but a torment to themselves“ (William Penn)

December 6th: MERCURY AGAIN DIRECT IN SCORPIO (it was retrograde from November 16th) – If you made some mistakes between December 2nd and December 6th, (when Mercury was moving backward on Scorpio), now it is a good time to fix them. Mercury in Scorpio makes you a great observer, especially when it comes to emotions, desires and interpersonal relationships. Politeness is not among your qualities, but sincerity is – sometimes, too much sincerity.

December 7th: NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS (Sun conjunct Moon in Sagittarius) – expand your consciousness, expand your horizons, expand your mind! This is what the New Moon in Sagittarius wants you to do, today. „Make it thy business to know thyself, which is the most difficult lesson in the world“ (Miguel de Cervantes)
