Your December 2016 Horoscope Is Here: What's In The Stars For You?

It's hard to believe that 2016 is almost over—and for some people, not a moment too soon. Luckily, it's Sagittarius season until December 21, a time of expansion, generosity and open-mindedness. We could all use the Archer's global and multicultural awareness more than ever now.

Could some productive dialogue be part of the deal? December 13 brings the year's final full moon—a supermoon in garrulous Gemini. If we play our cards right, this could be a fruitful time for communication, clearing the air and partnering up with a kindred spirit or two.

Best to get it all out in the open then. Mercury will go retrograde on December 19 in Capricorn until January 8. Interestingly, this is also the day of the Electoral College final decision for who will be U.S. President. Capricorn is the sign of government, patriarchy and men—this could affect the outcome, especially since fiery Mars will end its run through Aquarius, the sign of politics, that began on November 8 (Election Day in the U.S.). Whether or not the tides turn dramatically remains to be seen, but it IS certainly interesting that this nail-bitingly anticipated date coincides with two major transitions.

Capricorn season begins on December 21, shifting from fiery Sag energy to stabilizing earth energy. Then, December 29 brings a goal-focused Capricorn new moon—a great time to make 2017 resolutions a couple days early, since new moons give all our initiatives extra oomph.

The Christmas-Hanukkah weekend is major. Uranus, the planet of sudden changes, will make two rare and groundbreaking aspects. On December 24, radical Uranus will form a golden trine to structured Saturn, a curious mix of old and new. Both planets are in action-oriented fire signs, which could awaken a powerful need for the "establishment" to work in harmony with forward-thinking and humanitarian groups. But make no mistake—these cosmic negotiations could get intense, as Saturn and Uranus are pretty much polar opposites in their ideologies.

Luckily, the two "benefics"—loving Venus and optimistic Jupiter—will form a second trine on December 25 that will bring peaceful and openhearted energy to this weekend. Holiday weekend proposals, anyone?

The next day, Jupiter will form a rare opposition to Uranus—a faceoff that only happens every 14 years. This could bring erratic mood swings and knee-jerk reactions. People could act impulsively, making snap decisions that throw everything into chaos. (Election recount curveball, perhaps?) Expect the unexpected for the last week of 2016, especially as Uranus ends a five-month retrograde backspin on December 29.

Keep your wits about you, too. For the past several years, we have observed that there have been public acts of violence as unstable Uranus stations into forward (direct) motion. Stay safe.

New Year's Eve features the moon and Venus both in humanitarian Aquarius, still in a happy trine to Jupiter in lovely Libra. Energetic Mars and escapist Neptune will also be united in Pisces, which is another curious and potentially combustible mix. On the upside, this could be a night of deep compassion or smoldering romantic fantasies come to life. But it also has the potential for some buried and shadowy forces to emerge from hiding—and for some champagne-fueled feuds to escalate. So again, keep your wits about you as the calendar turns.
