Scorpio Horoscope: December 2012

Labor of love

Pay more attention to your financial future this month, as you'll seek new opportunities to increase your income in the year ahead. Quicksilver Mercury's entry into farsighted Sagittarius and your 2nd House of Resources on December 10 gives you a more positive picture of your earning potential. The inspirational Sagittarius New Moon on December 13 falls in your 2nd House, and the optimism it creates helps you cast aside doubts and dream about bigger rewards ahead.

You garner recognition on December 15, when attractive Venus enters Sagittarius to pump up your self-esteem and reinforce the flow of moneymaking ideas. Your potential for earning more money is connected to the faith you have in yourself and the excitement you feel from your work. Pleasure and profit make an ideal mix, because cash will come more easily when you're having a good time.

On December 20, prosperous Jupiter forms an edgy quincunx with purging Pluto, an aspect that already occurred on July 18 and will return on March 29, 2013. It's one of several reminders to eliminate unprofitable distractions and choose the most productive path for economic success. The Winter Solstice is marked by the Sun's move into prioritizing Capricorn on December 21 and Jupiter's quincunx with constrictive Saturn on December 22, both reinforcing the importance of concentrating your efforts.

On December 28, the protective instincts of the Cancer Full Moon encounter an opposition to Pluto and a tense square with unpredictable Uranus that can throw a monkey wrench into your plans. However, the Moon's supportive trine to steadfast Saturn reinforces your sense of commitment, enabling you to make course corrections and get right back on track.

Keep in Mind this Month
The limits of your current circumstances only reflect what lies ahead if you don't set your financial imagination free.

Key Dates for Scorpio

December 16: Sudden epiphany
You can expect difficulties today as a frustrating semisquare between mobile Mercury and impatient Mars messes with travel plans, provokes harsh language or complicates minor matters. However, Mars also forms an inventive quintile with brilliant Uranus that prompts a radical new approach to quickly untangle the knots of your day.

December 28 - 30: Trust the process
The Cancer Full Moon on December 28 brightens your 9th House of Big Ideas to provide a fresh perspective on your long-range plans. However, the tenderness and protection offered by this sign could be stripped away by its disruptive aspects with stormy Pluto and wild Uranus. Your tendency to rely on the status quo isn't necessarily wise now; there are too many changes happening all around you. Still, support from savvy Saturn in Scorpio shines the spotlight on what's most essential so you can shift gears without losing direction. The Sun's conjunction with Pluto and smart sextile with Saturn on December 30 give you a clear sense of purpose as you look to the year ahead.
