December begins with the life-giving Sun in your 10th House of Career and Public Responsibility. This is usually considered to be favorable for getting recognition in your professional life. But you may still have some nagging doubts about the future in your current situation because two key planets are lagging behind and won't join this part of your chart until later in the month.
Mental Mercury and relationship-oriented Venus start December in skeptical Scorpio and your 9th House of Truth. If you're not fully invested in what you're doing and lack faith in its ultimate benefits, you could have some negative thoughts. However, chatty Mercury enters enthusiastic Sagittarius and your 10th House on December 10, and Venus will do the same on December 15. These transits could boost your morale, give you a stronger voice on the job and provide you with some appreciation and pleasure. If these don't unfold before the year is out, taking a different approach to work is worthy of consideration.
In fact, the New Moon in Sagittarius on December 13 can light a fresh spark of professional interest or underscore the idea that you aren't in the right situation. Seek out the counsel of reliable friends and colleagues as of December 21, when the Sun enters pragmatic Capricorn and your 11th House of Groups. Advice from an experienced individual may help you overcome doubts or surpass obstacles that are getting in the way of success. Patience and long-range planning are keys to putting any useful ideas into practice.
