December 2018 Tarotscopes
Aries is not exactly known as the most sensitive or psychic sign of the zodiac. That said, a couple of my Aries friends are some of the most naturally intuitive people I know. I’m not sure what the cause is for this increase in sensitivity but for Aries in general, December seems to be a month of increased ability to connect to the unseen realms and your own unconscious mind (which is one and the same, some would argue).
Here’s the funny thing, this is not only happening to bring you into better balance by raising the Element of Water (feelings/intuition) within – It’s happening so that you can become more productive. While you may not feel comfortable or in your natural element with this increased level of sensitivity, it’s important that you allow it to blossom now. You may find that you need more quiet time/me-time than usual… and that’s OK. When you do emerge into the world again, you’ll have much wisdom and inspiration to offer to those around you.
Affirmation: I honour my sensitivity and put it to work for me.
December is a month of endings and new beginnings… of feeling the fear and doing it anyway. You have to go with the flow of inspiration now and bring your magic to life, no matter how outside your comfort zone it makes you feel!
Once you flow with your inspiration, it will become very clear that your biggest fear was always going to give birth to your biggest gift to those around you. Best of all, everything you need to make it work is at hand. There is nothing to stop you… Green light all the way, baby!
Affirmation: I feel the fear and do it anyway!
The Ace of Earth (Pentacles) followed by the 2 of Fire (Wands) and the 3 of Earth (Pentacles) puts the emphasis on work for you this month. You could find yourself in a situation where you have to work as a team with at least another person who doesn’t seem to want to cooperate.
This is the time to focus on opportunity and diplomacy instead of all the argy bargy that you could otherwise easily get drawn into. Use your communication skills to smooth things over and inspire everyone to pull together. You will be able to shine this way and be seen by those in power as a valuable team player to bear in mind for future projects.
Affirmation: I focus on the opportunities and use my messaging to inspire those I work with.
You have energy to spare this month. This is a great time for career advancement or taking centre stage. You are likely to gain recognition and appreciation for any projects that you oversee and/or bring to completion. You are seen as reliable and a good leader.
This is also a wonderful month for socialising, including meeting someone new with whom you have great chemistry. You may feel drawn in many different directions. To make the most of the many opportunities that come your way this month, both at work and romantically, try to stay organised and disciplined with your time.
Your charisma in overdrive, so be careful what you wish for because you won’t have any problems attracting new people to you!
Affirmation: I choose to be organised and disciplined with my time.
Other people play a big part in your life this month – Not strange since we’re coming up to the ‘Festive Season’ and many of us will spend time with family that we may or may not get along with.
For you, this is highlighted in the form of spending time with people who can have a triggering effect for you, due to emotional immaturity and insensitivity to the needs of others. Two of them in particular have a long way to go when it comes to understanding values such as empathy, sensitivity and compassion. They may or may not bear ill will toward you but they simply don’t know how to treat others with respect.
Do what is right for you and don’t sacrifice your own wellbeing to please others. And if you choose to still spend time with these people, use the experience to learn more about any anxieties that are triggered – That way you get to see these people as teachers instead of tormentors – This loftier perspective is a much better fit for you… IF you feel strong enough to cope.
Affirmation: Everyone is my teacher.
December brings an opportunity to do some cord cutting after a break-up or loss of some kind. It’s time to start over in 2019 and allow what no longer serves you to stay behind in the old year.
It will not be possible to bypass the emotional pain that dealing with this loss brings up for you. However the time to move forward is definitely now because you are able to analyse the situation with great accuracy and learn from it… and that is always going to be the key to successfully moving on.
Your mind is razor-sharp this month and this will benefit you more ways than one. Pay close attention to any new idea that crops up and act on it instantly.
Affirmation: I leave past pain behind and move forward to bright new beginnings.
If you are not travelling physically in December, you are certainly on quite the emotional journey. We are talking about epic endings/destinations and shiny new prospects for the future. You are hopeful, optimistic and deeply invested in making the most of the next stage of your journey
You have every reason to celebrate your achievements so far this year. However, don’t be in a rush to start something new. Take some time out to allow your soul to catch up. Use the arts as therapy to recharge your energy levels. It is important for Libra to be in harmony, so honour this need above the need for another new adventure, no matter how exhilarating the last one was and how tempting it is to rush ahead now…
Affirmation: I make harmony of mind-body-spirit my main priority.
Some kind of dissatisfaction with familial relations is weighing you down. You may feel as if you have no choice but spend time with people who drag you down and kill your mojo during this festive season. Actually, unless nobody is holding a knight to your throat, you have the power to say ‘No.’
If you do go there, fortify your personal boundaries and make sure that you have somewhere you can retreat to heal and recharge (even if only between a pair of noise-cancelling headphones).
You, and many of the people around you, are very sensitive and quite possibly emotionally reactive this month. This could make you feel as if you have to walk on eggshells.
Do: Book a cheap holiday abroad instead and avoid all the aggro. Don’t: Hide at the bottom of a bottle.
Affirmation: I honour my feelings and say no without a need to justify.
Unwanted attention from some people in your social circle is a bit of a wet blanket this month. These people are trying to drag you into petty arguments because they can’t find anything better to do with their time. Don’t let them!
Even if it means sacrificing your pride, you are better off walking away from these people. From a higher perspective, these people are your teachers too, of course.
To make the most of the situation, look at what you can learn about yourself rather than what is being argued over. A new perspective can be born this way and the beauty of it is that once it clicks into place, you will soon lose the argumentative people and frenemies from your life.
Affirmation: I move in the direction of peace and invite a new perspective in.
When anxiety levels go up during the festive season, due to forced social engagements or having to spend money you simply don’t have, face those fears head on instead of trying to stick your head in the sand by being a total workaholic.
Try talking to someone you trust. Or, if you can’t find someone to talk to, write about it. Either way, it’s important that you get your thoughts out of your head so they don’t fester and lead to melancholy or depression.
It’s normal to need to vent. It’s normal to not always feel strong and in control. You’re normal even when you’re not OK. It’s OK to not be OK… but you’ll soon feel OK again if you can just talk things through. Once you try this a few times, you’ll wonder what all the fuss was about.
Affirmation: A burden shared is a burden halved.
Wouldn’t the world be such a better place with all this commercial Crimbo malarkey?! You are genuinely feed up with the illusion/mass-delusion because you know that the world doesn’t need more gift wrapped plastic crap.
Be the change you want to see in the world. Be the activist. Create more harmony and environmentally sound solutions in your own home. Find alternatives that are more wholesome and palatable. You may not be able to convince everyone that it’s the way forward but that’s OK, as long as you move in a direction that addresses some of the gross materialistic imbalance you see all around you.
You are meant to lead on this, not follow.
Affirmation: I am the change I wish to see in the world.
Unresolved family business can be resolved this month and though some gatherings could be tinged with sadness because of recent-ish losses, you will on the most part see much improved relationships with your loved ones! The losses you have suffered this year may actually help bring you closer together.
Don’t hesitate to go to a family gathering if you are invited. The past does not need to be on repeat this year. And if you are not invited anywhere, don’t hesitate to invite yourself somewhere where people gather after suffering loss. Your presence will be much appreciated!
Your sensitivity will be a great asset as you will be able to break the ice and help everyone feel at ease.
Affirmation: I see the healing potential in all family/social gatherings this holiday season.
