Mercury, your clever ruling planet, begins December in scrutinizing Scorpio and your 3rd House of Communication, where it deepens your mind, invites you to explore new professional possibilities and intensifies work-related conversations. Discretion is a must because exposing confidential information will not help your reputation.
Sociable Venus is also in this part of your chart, where handling relationships of all kinds with greater care is critical. Sure, the Sun is in enthusiastic and restless Sagittarius, expanding your visions for the future in your 4th House of Roots. And with energetic Mars in competent Capricorn and your 5th House of Creativity until December 25, you're liable to be in a position to demonstrate once again just how good you are at your job.
But on December 10, Mercury dives into your 4th House, putting more emphasis on your personal than on your professional life. Venus follows suit on December 15, drawing even more attention to the approaching holidays. Still, this is a time to dream about a more expansive professional future. Letting your mind explore unfamiliar territory can open it to concepts that could eventually bring more life to your current line of work or inspire you to seek greener pastures.
On December 21, the Sun enters earthy Capricorn and your 5th House of Creativity, where you can get attention for your leadership skills and reliability. Just be careful about how you wield your authority, because tense solar connections to rebellious Uranus on December 25 and provocative Pluto on December 30 can spur surprises and resistance on the job.
