You could find yourself in the middle of some delicate situations this month as assertive Mars enters your complicated 8th House on December 7. The warrior planet's usual aggression is tempered by its presence in pacifying Libra, which is why you may often find yourself playing the role of the peacemaker.
Mars turns retrograde next year, which will prolong its stay in your 8th House until the summer. It usually fires through a sign and house in about seven weeks, so this is an exceptional situation. Getting caught between warring parties is a downside but making positive financial alliances is a definite plus. Just do your best to combine honesty and kindness instead of dodging differences of opinion. If you have any doubts about your professional life, talk to an experienced colleague or friend.
Loving Venus is in serious Capricorn and your 11th House of Groups, Pals and Co-workers to provide you with support and practical insights from others. While pushing forward professionally is challenging heading into the holidays, it's appropriate to expand your vision for the future.
On December 2 the adventurous Sagittarius New Moon occurs in your 10th House of Career to inspire higher aspirations. A key to turning these feelings into concrete results is belief and passion about your goal. Making money is a wonderful thing, but you need fuel for your heart as well as for your bank account. Letting yourself dream up the ideal situation may not make it come true today but will give you more energy and hope for career fulfillment in the future.
