Scorpio Horoscope: December 2013
Take the Higher Road
The decisions you make this month concerning your long-term goals will impact your future in ways you cannot yet imagine. The forward-looking Sagittarius New Moon on December 2 highlights your 2nd House of Income, emphasizing your need for material security. However, the New Moon's trine to independent Uranus in your 6th House of Work urges you to escape from the restraints of a job that's not aligned with your inner purpose.
Although logical Mercury's move into your financial 2nd House on December 4 is good for money management, active Mars shifts into your 12th House of Soul Consciousness on December 7 to reminds you that your spiritual journey is just as important as mundane matters.
You can make steady progress toward your goals on December 12, when propitious Jupiter in your 9th House of Big Ideas forms a fluid trine with realistic Saturn in your sign. The inquisitive Gemini Full Moon on December 17 illuminates your 8th House of Shared Resources, potentially giving rise to a disagreement over joint property. But an expansive Jupiter-Neptune alignment the same day shows you the conflict from a larger perspective so you can sidestep an avoidable confrontation.
The Winter Solstice on December 21, and the Sun's shift into ambitious Capricorn, indicating that you still have plenty of work to do to reach your goals. Expect to be busy right up until the end of the year because the Sun, Mercury, and Mars form challenging aspects with Uranus and Pluto on December 29 to 31. Although the holidays may not be as restful as you wish, at least you can still accomplish a lot if you are flexible enough to adapt to a few surprises along the way.
Keep in Mind this Month
Sure, you need enough money to cover your basic requirements. But there's more to life than worldly success. Balance your professional ambitions with a spiritual practice that resonates with your soul.
