Aquarius Horoscope: December 2013
Keep the Faith
Your role in the community is especially important this month with a good deal of planetary activity happening in your 11th House of Social Networking, starting with the high-spirited Sagittarius New Moon on December 2. This inspirational lunation cultivates friendships, initiates group activities, and encourages you to be a more enthusiastic teammate. Unorthodox Uranus's favorable trine to this Sun-Moon conjunction can reinvigorate your interest in an organization.
Verbose Mercury blasts into Sagittarius on December 4, bringing bigger ideas and more contacts to the table -- but possibly carrying you away with impractical beliefs. Warrior Mars turns peaceful in cooperative Libra on December 7 as it enters your 9th House of Faraway Places. Advocating for the truth often creates conflict, yet now you may be able to do it graciously enough to maintain civil conversations with those who don't agree with you.
You have a solid grasp of your professional ambitions on December 12 with the second of three strategically sound Jupiter-Saturn trines. You might reassess goals that came with their first trine on July 17 and make adjustments to them that could bear fruit with their final recurrence on May 24, 2014.
A flirtatious Gemini Full Moon on December 17 charges your 5th House of Self-Expression, prompting playful, creative, and even romantic impulses. The metaphysical Jupiter-Neptune sesquisquare amplifies your holiday spirit, while retrograde Uranus turns forward the same day, releasing energy that increases your taste for freedom.
The Sun's shift into traditional Capricorn on December 21 marks the Winter Solstice while heart-centered Venus turns retrograde in your 12th House of Divinity, reviving old questions about the purpose of life. Thankfully, clever Mercury's move into Capricorn on December 24 just might give you some of the answers you seek.
Keep in Mind this Month
Instead of following familiar traditions throughout the holiday season, shake things up. Dynamic times call for you to embrace change.
Key Dates for Aquarius
December 6-7: Lost in Space
Your mind can float off to some interesting places with a surreal Mercury-Neptune square on December 6. Your creativity is off the charts, but so is the potential for confusion, cloudy thinking, and miscommunication. Yet pushing your point or trying to get the clarity you need from others may not be easy when Mercury forms an overstated sesquisquare with outlandish Jupiter on December 7. Facts remain fuzzy, so take what you hear with a grain of salt.
SUPER NOVA DAYS
December 29-31: No Turning Back
Mercury joins the Sun on December 29, which usually clarifies thinking and empowers speech. However, their squares to erratic Uranus on December 29-30 can overload your nervous system and galvanize your desire for independence. The revolution that counts, though, is the one within. Be certain of what the real battle entails, because a relentless Mars-Pluto square on December 30 means you're playing for keeps. Mercury's conjunction with Pluto and square to Mars on December 31 underscore the importance of any changes you make.
