You're able to do your people-pleasing-charming-thing in December, with the warm-hearted Sagittarius Sun in your 3rd House of Communication until December 21. On the one hand you're able to enthusiastically boost the morale of those around you, but it's possible that your thinking is more critical than your words. That's because mental Mercury is in scrutinizing Scorpio and your 2nd House of Resources until December 10. This could reflect financial worries or questions about the value of your work.
Loving Venus, your traditional ruling planet, is also in Scorpio until December 15, underscoring the idea that while you might be smiling on the outside, inwardly you're making calculations that are less optimistic. As long as you don't get lost in despair, this can be very helpful. It's about looking below the surface to dig up resources and restore talents that aren't being fully exploited. Don't be hard on yourself unless that's what it takes to motivate you to maximize your abilities. There's a lot more worth and potential for income and professional success than you're using, and this is a great time to recognize it.
You should be able to express yourself more freely, gaining attention with your words and ideas, when Mercury fires into Sagittarius on December 10. There's a serious turn on December 21, when the Sun enters responsible Capricorn and your 4th House of Roots. This is a good time to start taking a long-range view of your professional aspirations. Don't be in a hurry, as patience is a key to your future success.
