Aries December 2017 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


The one thing you can expect this month is a lot of change, with the major shifts that will dominate 2018 all starting to fall into place this month. Jupiter has been in your financial sector since October, but it’s not until Mars returns on the 9th December that you’ll start to feel the impact. The Sun, Mercury and Venus, who will leave on the 1st December, have all played their part in helping you to adjust to Jupiter’s new position here until November 2018, but Mars is the planet that can make things happen. At the same time, Mars’ departure from your relationship sector is going to take a lot of pressure off you and your relationships.

The other huge area of focus is around Saturn, both in his final weeks in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery and his return to your career sector on the 20th December. This is the move that will set 2018 and the coming years apart from previous years, for it ushers in a major new professional chapter. Yet until the 20th December it is business as usual on the professional front, with nothing apart from a sense of anticipation to suggest the enormous shift about to take place.

With Saturn in your career sector for the next three years, the Sun’s return on the 22nd December and Venus’ on the 25th December, it will help you get your bearings in this early phase. Yet until then the Sun, Saturn and Venus’ focus couldn’t be more different, spending the majority of the month in an adventurous part of your chart. For the Sun this is what happens at this time every year, but the difference this time is the extreme shift this will create. This isn’t just the start of your annual professional update, but the start of the most powerful three professional years in decades.

Love 2017Aries December 2017 Love Horoscope

There is a historical event this month that is set to change everything, and that is Mars’ departure from your relationship sector on the 9th December. This isn’t just Mars wrapping up his last visit until 2019, but bringing all planetary activity on the relationship front to an end. This is the end of an era and an end to the pressure on both you and your relationships since Jupiter first returned in September 2016. It was that on again, off again tension between planets fighting for your relationship needs and Uranus and Eris defending your own needs that is coming to an end. But in the process, this leaves you with an authentic sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.

The turnaround begins before Mars leaves, with the potential for a breakthrough in the early days of the month. This is thanks in part to Mars’ opposition with Uranus on the 1st December, which is the last hurdle to cross. This might see the month start with personal and/or relationship tension still running high, but a Full Moon in your communication sector on the 4th December will very quickly turn this into an opportunity for a communication and/or relationship breakthrough.

Each day that passes will see Mars and Uranus move further apart and any tensions drop back, before his departure on the 9th December pulls the plug. This is when you will start to enjoy the benefits. In the meantime, with less focus on your relationships, there is more a chance for romantic matters to blossom. This allows you to take advantage of the doors open to the past and second chances and to an opportunity for a do over, from the 17th December.

Money 2017Aries December 2017 Money Horoscope

Starting the month with Venus in your financial sector is a huge advantage. Even though Venus will leave on the 1st December, having the planet of money on board from the get go is a bell that can’t be unrung. In any month, just starting the month with financial confidence, desires, and expectations fuelled from the start would be an advantage. Yet you not only have lucky Jupiter staying on, but Mars returning on the 9th December to fire things up and make things happen.

Since Jupiter returned to your financial sector in early October to kick off an expansive 13 month period of financial growth, a parade of planets has moved through. Yet while the Sun and Mercury were focused on getting your head in the game and throwing the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters and Venus on updating your financial desires and expectations, this was all preparation. Mars is the planet of action, and as the warrior planet of the cosmos, he is all about making things happen and getting things done.

The last time the planets of passion and luck aligned in your financial sector were in 2006, but in the New Year, they will align here for the first time in 35 years. While Jupiter has been here since early October and won’t leave until November 2018, this is the month when you’re likely to see things happen. This makes the Moon’s visit from the 14th December to the 16th December especially important. This will bring a chance to put your financial instincts, imagination, passions and fighting spirit on the same page. Meanwhile, the Moon creates two pockets where there could be some lucrative income developments and definitely a chance to sharpen your nose for money. They run from the 1st December to the 3rd December and again from the 28th December to the 30th December.

Career 2017Aries December 2017 Career Horoscope

Still waters run deep at the start of the month, with nothing to suggest that you are on the cusp of your biggest professional breakthrough and journey in a lifetime. December is always a tricky month for you professionally, for while each year always has and always will begin and end with the Sun in your career sector, the Sun always spends the first three weeks of December in an adventurous part of your chart. It is as though December lures you in with an adventurous vibe, only to become a lot more professionally focused just before Christmas.

For that reason, at a subconscious level, you know to embrace a sense of adventure before the sea change happens and this year this is even more important. For this year this is not the annual sea change, but a complete change in the professional dynamics. Fortunately, the Moon returns a day before, so your professional instincts will be sharp as everything changes. It begins with the Moon’s return to your career sector on the 19th December, ensuring you have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground when Saturn returns on the 20th December, for the first time since 1991.

Yet this time is different, for with Pluto here since 2008, you’ve been preparing for a major change for the last nine years. This is the first time that serious Saturn and rebellious Pluto have met up here in our lifetime, but they will rule together for the next three years. By the time the Sun returns on the 20th December and Venus on the 25th December, you’ll be in the early days of the biggest developments seen on the career front in three decades. Fortunately, the one thing you have on your side is time.
