If you've been working hard and concentrating your efforts where they will be most productive, you can open new doors in in your professional life this month. Your brainy ruling planet Mercury spends the first 10 days of December in intense Scorpio and your 6th House of Tasks. Learning which ones can be eliminated or done more efficiently can be a launching pad to future opportunities.
Mercury enters your 7th House of Partners and the Public on December 10, attracting people and ideas that can broaden your professional horizons. Your ability to promote yourself and advance your ambitions also gets an additional boost when alluring Venus moves into this sociable part of your chart on December 15. Being able to make useful connections and presenting yourself and plans in a positive light is just the first step, though. All the opportunities in the world won't do you any good if you can't follow up and deliver on your promises. Avoid over-reaching if you want to maintain your credibility.
Aligning yourself with competent and committed people is a must with active Mars in responsible Capricorn and your 8th House of Deep Sharing until December 25. Sticking with a plan and demonstrating discipline may not be exciting, but it can build lasting alliances. After December 25, Mars will be in innovative Aquarius and your 9th House of Big Ideas and Faraway Places. You can finish the month and head into the New Year with visions of more exciting ways to work in the future.
