Your love and social life might feel like a confusing mess this December, but don't worry, at least you have your career going for you!
Still, early in the month -- around December 3 -- you might feel as if you have been duped in matters of the heart. Your lover might literally be keeping a secret from you and if so, you'll feel extremely disenchanted when you discover what it is. Most likely it has to do with him or her being irresponsible with finances. If that's the case, this is a gray area. On the one hand, it serves as a red flag for you because if things get more serious, you now know that your sweetie has a mess or two to clean up financially. You honestly won't want to touch it. On the other hand, however, it really isn't your business to be overly concerned about it since you're only in the dating stage. What you should be upset over, however, is the fact that your love is not being entirely truthful with you about something. Whether it's a money situation or another issue, the real problem is that trust is already being eroded. That's never a good sign.
If you have any children, you might feel a major financial drain because of them early this month as well. Hey, we all know that kids are expensive, so do your best to take it in stride.
Adding to the mix is the fact that Mercury will travel retrograde through your friendship sector from December 3 until December 22. You and a pal might experience more than one frustrating miscommunication. The bright side? You may reconnect with an old friend from your past. Think high school or even college.
Now, let's talk about the happy news. Mars, the planet of assertive drive, will move through your career sector from December 9 through January 26, 2018. This once-every-two-year event serves as a major boost for you professionally in many ways. For starters, you'll feel a surge of ambition and motivation to achieve your most vital goals. If you're entrepreneurial, this will be an ideal time to start a new business. You'll also have the guts to walk up to your boss and ask for -- or demand -- a promotion that you know you deserve. It'll be difficult to refuse you.
