Libra Horoscope: December 2012

Leap of faith

Self-confidence is your greatest asset this month, but it could get the best of you if you take it too far. With optimistic Jupiter in inquisitive Gemini and your 9th House of Big Ideas, exploring new avenues can lead you to success. Still, you're challenged to manage all your opportunities -- especially on December 2, when the Sun in audacious Sagittarius opposes Jupiter from your 3rd House of Communication.

You want to say yes to everything, and when Mercury enters Sagittarius on December 10 and opposes Jupiter on December 17, you could promise someone the entire world and actually believe you'll be able to deliver it. Faith in yourself is healthy, but delusions of invincibility are not. This theme is repeated a third time when seductive Venus strides into enthusiastic Sagittarius and your interactive 3rd House on December 15 to oppose jovial Jupiter on December 22. Although these transits lift your holiday spirits, each can also test your limits by tempting you to overdo, overstate, or overindulge.

The inspirational Sagittarius New Moon on December 13 stimulates your 3rd House of Siblings. Even if you don't have any brothers or sisters, this is an excellent moment for honest conversations with your closest friends. This lunation anxiously semisquares calculating Saturn, reminding you to honor your commitments.

You may believe your reputation is at stake when the emotionally intense Cancer Full Moon on December 28 shines in your 10th House of Status. Its opposition to a dynamic Sun-Pluto conjunction that's exact on December 30 assures you that this year will not end quietly. A power struggle could upset the harmony at home, unless you have the wisdom to face the issue without stirring further conflict.

Keep in Mind this Month
You're more likely to sustain the joyful spirit of this season if you set healthy boundaries when it's appropriate.

Key Dates for Libra

December 10 - 14: Light at the end of the tunnel
A tough semisquare from sweet Venus in your 2nd House of Self-Esteem to mysterious Pluto on December 10 reveals the darker side of love, as issues of possession or jealousy rise to the surface. Although Venus' conjunction with the soulful North Lunar Node on December 12 can put you in touch with what you really want, your desires may be unrealistic because a mesmerizing Mercury-Neptune square on December 11 crosses the boundaries between fact and fiction. Fortunately, the bold Sagittarius New Moon on the December 13, followed by an electrifying Mercury-Uranus trine on December 14, breaks the spell with a sudden epiphany that can free you from any negativity.

December 28 - 31: All yogether now
You have a chance to stand up for something that's really important on December 28, although difficult aspects to the sentimental Cancer Full Moon can be quite unsettling. Your victory could be hollow if others are hurt by it. Thankfully, a surprising Mars-Uranus sextile on December 31 mixes up the dynamics, allowing you to include everyone in your celebration.
