Aquarius December 2017 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


To move into the new month with Venus just leaving your career sector on the 1st December is not unusual. The Sun only left on the 22nd November and quite often Venus and Mercury will still be tying up loose ends. Yet what Venus leaves behind when she leaves on the 1st December is anything but tying up loose ends, with the real magnitude of what’s possible not even dawning on you yet. For as well as leaving Jupiter behind, Mars’ return on the 9th December will kick off some of the most important and driven professional conditions in over a decade. At a point when your professional year is usually winding down, it will move into overdrive and stay there until later next month.

However, this won’t stop the social focus that will always define this time of year, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of December in your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking. This year there is a lot more weight here, with Saturn wrapping up his three year visit on the 20th December. With the Sun here until the 22nd December and Venus from the 1st December to the 25th December, this will be a social and serendipitous month. With Mercury in retrograde motion here from the 3rd December to the 23rd December, there will also be a chance to reconnect with old friends.

This will continue through the New Year and into 2018, but from the 20th December you’ll find there is a strong urge to pull back and spend time navel gazing. This is something that will always happen when the Sun returns to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart on the 22nd December, to begin the month long wind down of your old solar year. Yet what happens two days earlier is more significant, with Saturn beginning a three year mission to wind down a three decade long Saturn cycle.

Love 2017Aquarius December 2017 Love Horoscope

While neither your romantic nor relationship sectors are dominant areas of your chart this month, what is happening is enough to give both sides what they need. The North Node and Ceres, who have been together in your relationship sector since September, finally aligned late last month and will remain aligned until the 5th December. With Ceres turning retrograde here on the 17th December, the forces that are bringing a lot more depth and a more authentic sense of direction to your relationships, are quietly strengthening their position.

With Uranus and Eris spending their last full month in retrograde motion in your communication sector, Ceres’ retrograde turn will not only see the doors open to the past and second chances on both fronts but remain open for the rest of the year. This coincides with a sense of romantic nostalgia that will kick in on Christmas Day and continue into the first three weeks of January. Until then, the love gods are saving their focus for a few select pockets. It starts with the Moon’s move through your romantic sector from the 3rd December to the 5th December.

As well as creating some romantically charged days, this will create a Full Moon on the 4th December. This Lovers Moon is the last Full Moon of 2017 that will allow the love gods to play any final wildcards up their sleeves. However, the love gods have a few more surprises. Apart from Venus’ return to a nostalgic part of your chart on Christmas Day, the Moon will come full circle from the Full Moon on the 30th December. This means that you will not only end one year and start the next with a sense of romantic nostalgia in play but with romantically charged lunar vibes on board.

Money 2017Aquarius December 2017 Money Horoscope

Income forces are in the best possible position this month. They don’t have the pressure of having to perform or even put too much focus on income matters, but they have managed to hitch the wagon to a new professional surge. It was late last month that Venus, moving through your career sector, aligned with both Neptune and Chiron on the income front. As the planet of money, until she leaves on the 1st December Venus is on a mission to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. An alignment with both planets on the income front was a win/win for both.

This is something that Venus has done each year since Chiron returned to your income sector in 2010 and since Neptune returned in 2012. However, the month starts with Jupiter, making his first visit to your career sector since 2006, aligned with Jupiter. This is the first time they have come together here in our lifetime, with cementing a partnership between career and income forces. Neptune only turned direct late last month, and Chiron doesn’t turn direct until the 5th December. So don’t expect too much movement on the income front, just a whole lot of confidence.

It is once the Sun, Mercury, and Venus return to your income sector early next year that this will gain some real momentum. In the meantime, the Moon’s return to your income sector from the 24th December to the 26th December is a chance to sharpen your nose for money before heading into the New Year. With the money gods putting all their focus on income matters, the Moon’s visit to your financial sector from the 9th December to the 11th December is a chance to get your financial bearings.

Career 2017Aquarius December 2017 Career Horoscope

Just moving into the month with Venus still in your career sector is an advantage, even if she does leave on the 1st December. By then Venus has been here for 24 days, and like a bell that can’t be unrung, this allows you to start the month with your professional confidence fuelled and some clear expectations from the get go. If that were it, this would still be an advantage. But you know where this is going, for this is far from it. Instead, Venus leaves career and professional matters in the safe hands of Jupiter, who will continue to promote professional growth through to November 2018.

Yet this will leave Jupiter on his own and for a few days it might seem like this is the end of the push to get the journey underway and you may even start to settle into a more comfortable pace. Yet while the race will shift from a sprint to a marathon, it will shift back again when Mars returns on the 9th December. This is Mars’ first visit in nearly two years and like the Sun, Mercury and Venus before him is his first encounter with lucky Jupiter here since 2006. Yet when they align in the New Year, it will be their first alignment here in 35 years.

The difference between Mars and the other planets that have moved through since Jupiter returned in October, is that as the warrior planet of the cosmos and a planet of action, he is here to make things happen. Not leaving until late January, this may see things suddenly become a lot busier in the final weeks of the year while giving 2018 a massive head start before it begins. Mars will normally spend six weeks here, but slowing down ahead of a retrograde phase next year he will spend seven weeks. Not leaving until the 27th January, this gives you time to pace yourself.
