You might get a push from an enthusiastic friend or colleague with the fiery Sagittarius New Moon on December 2. It occurs in your 11th House of Teams where you draw inspiration from those who share your goals and when you're working for a cause in which you believe. If your job challenges your ethics, this lunation could trigger some reconsideration of your long-term professional plans. And even if you're not thrilled by your job, doing volunteer work for an organization will lift your spirits and, perhaps, help you make some beneficial contacts.
Venus, the planet of worth and attraction, is slowing down in your 12th House of Secrets and turns retrograde there on December 21. This transit suggests that you may not get the overt recognition that you deserve. However, if that's the case, you will have a chance to repair shaky alliances and gain quiet support that will pay off down the road.
Making connections with people in faraway places, publishing or academic institutions is favored when active Mars enters gracious Libra and your 9th House of Faraway Places on December 7. This visionary part of your chart is about expanding your intellectual and professional horizons. Mars' transit can also be about battling for your beliefs, yet doing so as graciously as possible is recommended. It's wiser to make some compromises than to get so caught up in being right that you alienate others.
Meeting people halfway may not be entirely satisfying to either side but is better than bogging down in an unresolvable conflict.
