Welcome to December, Aries! Your love life became intense last month when romance planet Venus entered brooding Scorpio. Communication is always the answer to relationship struggles, but you tend to be all about action, so that can be difficult for you. You have reason to cheer up, though; conversations will start to flow easier when messenger Mercury enters adventurous Sagittarius on Tuesday, December 1.
It’s understandably tempting to try to capture the usual levels of joy this month brings, but that doesn’t mean it’s not important to take care of your health. The pandemic is still in full swing, and a once-a-year aspect on Wednesday, December 9 puts taking care of both your immune system and self-esteem at top priority when the sun in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces. Get enough sleep, meditate to lower stress levels, and stay on top of wearing PPE and social distancing.
The pandemic has affected everyone’s work and income one way or another, and that’s a hard truth that astrology can’t fix. However, if there was ever a day to shoot your shot professionally it’s on Thursday, December 10, when the sun in Sagittarius trines fighter planet Mars, which is currently in your sign, Aries. This is a very lucky day for you, little ram, so circle it in your calendar. If you can, try to make these money moves before Monday, December 14, when there is a messy new moon and solar eclipse in wild Sagittarius. While eclipses tend to be dramatic, Sag’s horny energy can actually make this one fun. Think of it as super hot sex after a great date. Enjoy it, and look forward to what happens next, but don’t make any major commitments or sign documents just yet.
The name of the game for your love life is “fun” as romance planet Venus leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius on Tuesday, December 15. The mood pairs perfectly with the upcoming holidays. Whether you’re single or in a serious relationship, try to use romance to help you lighten up after such a heavy year. Flirt, sext, and remember that you deserve love in your life. On this same date, Tuesday, December 15, the comet Chiron (known as the “wounded healer”) goes direct, helping us process our trauma and move onward. It’s a day to begin healing and taking a more optimistic view of life.
You’ll need to maintain that positive outlook when serious Capricorn season begins on the winter solstice, on Monday, December 21. The next few weeks will have a more serious undertone. This is useful in helping us get stuff done after party-loving Sagittarius season, but you love fun, Aries, and the mood may feel a bit restrictive for you. Be selfish and layer on the self-care, through activities such as a luxurious bath or masturbation (or both at the same time). The perfect night for pampering is the healing full moon in Cancer on Tuesday, December 29. Try to relax and see you next month!

We know many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now. Although the stars don’t have answers to the multitude of questions running through all of our minds, astrology may at least provide some comfort during times of uncertainty. We urge you to donate to one or all of these organizations if you’re able to. If you can’t, we created a guide to ways you can support the BLM movement other than financially.
