Monthly Summary from the Annual Forecast

December: Slow and Steady 

Sun signs – Sagittarius & Capricorn

Stay on task and focus on your long-term goals. Supportive people and opportunistic situations are presented to you. Say YES when it’s in your lane. Say a distinctive NO when it’s not. This is important. This season calls for authenticity and integrity. That means being true to you, when you’re alone and when you’re out in the world. Doing the right thing, even when no one’s looking, creates wealth and success for you. Finding your stride isn’t easy at the end of the month.


Big Star Events: 
  • December 6th – Neptune takes off your rose-colored glasses
  • December 13th – Mercury plays tricks with your style and schedule
  • December 20th – Mars urges you to take big risks
  • December 21st – Reach for the peak of your potential on the Solstice
December Star Reading

You move into the last month of the year with feelings about the year as a whole. You can take stock of what you’ve accomplished and what you’ve left behind. Review your business dealings, your love life and your finances to determine where you stand against the goals you set at the beginning of the year.

Focus on pillars, milestones and intentions that include your personal accomplishments and the softer qualities you’ve gathered and any heaviness you’ve released. This is a holistic review.

Remember to be kind to yourself. This year has been razor sharp and even harsh to your dreams, standards and beliefs. The universe has done this to get you completely aligned with your soul mission. Fulfilling your soul destiny isn’t just about how you track against your goals and targets for your business. It’s also about love, life and joy. Include those tender moments and precious memories. Think in terms of a scrap book, not a strategic plan.

Once you’ve completed your review, put it all away and get serious about spending time with the people who matter to you. Look at your calendar and set time aside for silliness, surprise and delight. Be spontaneous and say YES to those who you adore, who you’ve been craving and who you love to celebrate.

Establishing your priorities at the outset sets you up for either an enjoyable, fun-filled and relaxing holiday season or a busy time-starved, disappointing one.

New Moon Sagittarius

Details: December 12 @ 6:32 pm ET at Sagittarius 20°

On the 12th, it’s just in time for a favorable New Moon in Sagittarius. You have an opening for excellent relationships, love and good fortune. The Moon is filled with opportunities, good news and support. It’s also the time to embrace the qualities of Sagittarius for adventures, philosophical simplicity and cultural exploration.

Mercury Retrograde

Details: December 13 – January 1, 2024 from Capricorn 8° – Sagittarius 22°

In short, there’s a different method to achieve your long-term goals by appreciating your achievements, taking stock of your credentials and fortifying your value and worth.

This is the only Mercury retrograde in 2023 that crosses signs from Capricorn into Sagittarius. As each zodiac sign rectifies the one before it, retrogrades flip this formula, letting Sagittarius relieve Capricorn, instead of the typical way. Sagittarius brings hope and optimism to the stoic “We’ve always done it this way” Capricorn. Sagittarius says YES when Capricorn can’t find a way to affirm. This is a great time to review your current strategy and find ways to adjust it, keeping the new way of leadership in mind. Let the masculine provide the strength at the core and the feminine to dance on the edges. Mercury heralds the new way during this retrograde period. Using it to your advantage clears your path. 

Note: Capricorns take heed from November 25th to January 20th. Sagittarius take note too. Also, other cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer and Libra, ask yourselves deep questions about the way you’ve always lead in your life and how you can adjust to a new way. For Taurus and Virgo Sun signs, once you’ve gotten the true sense of your leadership style, shine your light to help others.

Mars Out of Bounds

Details: December 20th, 2023 – January 23rd, 2024

You can act with bravery and courage, using your vitality to power you into your next project or adventure. Or you can act rashly, be too selfish or react defensively. The virus, rebellions and weather events are at an all-time high during this period.

With Mars in Sagittarius until January 4th, risks and adventures know no bounds. You will say yes to literally everything. The bill becomes due, so to speak, when Mars enters Capricorn on January 5th, questioning your position and status in the community.  Have you gone too far and risked too much? Maintaining composure while Mars is out of bounds in Sagittarius makes it so much easier when he transits into Capricorn.

Celebrate the Solstice

Details: Sun enters Capricorn December 21 @ 10:27 pm ET

Creativity anyone? The edges of the year bookend the most powerful and the highest potential energies. This solstice represents your highest potential. What are you choosing to do and how are you spending your time? Take note. What you energize, grows and what you ignore, dies. The powerful energy of the Solstice is great for diving deeply into your love, money and success. What’s your position in life? Your purpose? Your potential? Get creative in your desires. You’re a magnet to create the life you want to live. Attract the support and say YES to opportunities.

During the holidays, you vacillate between taking it easy and relaxing into the holiday season and rolling up your sleeves and finishing those pesky tasks that remain undone. There’s no reason you can’t do both. Create a tempo that works for you to recharge, to create memories and to get organized.

Full Moon – Capricorn & Cancer

Details: December 26 @ 7:33 pm ET Sun in Capricorn & Moon in Cancer at 4°

Your work-life balance gets a workout with your mind trying to determine what’s truly important to you. This isn’t the time for you to make assessments by yourself. Reach out to someone you trust when setting priorities and making decisions. It’s confusing right now and given the holidays, perhaps you can push off these big decisions until the new year.

Get flirty and fun for the New Year. The stars boost your desire to party at year’s end.


The oracle cards bring insight into what’s coming for the month. They give your mind something to focus on and remember as you go through the days and weeks. You can ponder the card or go into the guidance in the book when you need more than mental reminders.

The power of animal and crystal energy are easy to employ to help you create the success and satisfaction you desire. Spirit animals are always willing to assist. Simply call on the animal to bring it into focus and ponder its meaning.

For crystals, grab the crystal and put it on your desk, purse or kitchen table. You want to align with your success and this month’s stone helps you do that. 

For flower essences, put 3 drops into water 3 times a day and feel the gentle support for your body and emotions.

Intuition Oracle card: #37 Purpose

December, while a month of fun, celebration and love, is also a month to take stock and figure out how you want to recalibrate your decisions, priorities and habits to build the future you desire.

Step into your own path by taking a turn off the beaten path others have created. Your path is your own, and only yours. There is the requirement to carve out your original trail.

Be purposeful about your life’s path. Are you terrified, excited, both? When you’re on your rightful soul path, you’re both. Seek out someone who does this for a living and ask them about your true life purpose. It should be unique and make you excited and terrified at the same time.

Crystal: Rhodochrosite

Rhodochrosite is a stone of selfless love and compassion. It helps you feel loved and supported while still being appreciated. You can use this crystal when you want to learn how you’re in denial as it shows you the aspects of you that make you uncomfortable. You’re also able to release emotions and confront issues. As you do, rhodochrosite soothes emotional stress. 

This is one of my favorite stones of all time. She is deliciously supportive without being cloying.

Animal: Rabbit

Rabbit is brave. You are

– agile and adept at strategizing and planning. 

– optimistic, wise and artistic. 

– intelligent and have a lot of common sense.

Call on rabbit when you want to boost your creative energy, you want to have a baby or you need to act quickly to take advantage of a new opportunity. 

Flower essence: Beech

Beech is a beautiful, majestic and anciently wise tree and you can have a portion of this energy to help you feel love and tolerance for yourself and others. Think of the tree’s name without the spelling and you have the essence of this remedy.

When you feel critical of others, you’re most likely feeling insecure and judgmental. These actions tell your mind that you’re safe, although that’s patently untrue. The beech tree essence works with your third eye, so you see your life and rightful place in it with crystal clarity.

Weirdly as you push others away with your criticism, either said or unsaid, you create the exact opposite of what you truly desire. You care so much about what others think, you yearn longingly for acceptance and love. The more your longing grows, the more critical you become.

Beech flower essence is the perfect antidote to this cycle.

Bottom Line

Make a plan to incorporate business and pleasure. Your motto for December can be, “work hard and play hard.”

After work, it’s time to celebrate and enjoy yourself. Carve out time to get together with good friends, to reconnect with you and to strategize about the year ahead.

Get your business done and then play!

Thank you for reading and sharing with friends.

As always, wishing you joy,
