Your December 2018 Winter astrology forecast is here for all zodiac signs in astrology! The Sun is in the sign of Sagittarius and this brings attention to adventure, fun, and spiritual lessons.
The ruling planet of Gemini, Mercury is retrograde for most of Sagittarius Season. Mercury will station direct on December 6.
That means we will be free from inner-planet retrogrades until March 2019, when Mercury will begin its retrograde cycle.
We will be in the shadow phase of Mercury until December 24. As the month progresses communications and the exchange of information should improve.
Since last spring, much of 2018 has seen important retrograde cycles from the inner planets – Mercury, Venus, and Mars.
Taking a quick look at 2019, there will be fewer retrograde, with none from Venus and Mars.
Use December as an opportunity to complete unfinished business to prepare for next year.
Here are 5 key transits in the universe that affects your monthly horoscope and zodiac sign and what this month’s planetary changes are mean for December 2018:
(Note: These apply to everyone, however, if one of the planets is your planetary ruler it will have more of an effect on you.)
1. URANUS RETROGRADE IN ARIES
Uranus will continue its retrograde path through Aries until January 6th. Uranus is a generational planet. It takes 84 years to make one revolution around the Sun. What can we expect from Uranus Retrograde?
Technological advances, especially in personal computing, space exploration, and healthcare There will be social pressures that push for individual rights and new laws and programs that better serve the younger generation.
We can expect to see more young people worldwide standing up for what matters to them – environment, education, equality, and freedom.
On an individual level, you van expect to feel inspired to complete a personal project or to take on a new challenge.
2. URANUS-NEPTUNE SEMI-SQUARE
The Uranus-Neptune semi-square comes back for its fourth time on December 15th. The experience is likely to wake us up in some way.
That means another growth step is coming our way, one that clears away the dullness that often clouds our mind.
Uranus and Neptune compel us to expand our capacity for higher-level thought and sensitivity.
3. JUPITER-NEPTUNE SQUARE
As we move through December, Jupiter’s square to Neptune will tighten. This can create a tension between what’s ideal and what’s practical.
Jupiter in Sagittarius asks the question, what’s really important to us?
Two reactions are possible. On one hand, we can expect religious extremism and clashes of political ideologies.
On the other hand, humanitarian efforts will also be central, as people’s generation will be activated.
Neptune in Pisces will call on individuals to take a moral inventory. You can expect to ponder your life purpose and potential.
4. SATURN-NEPTUNE SEXTILE
This favorable sextile will still be in orb at the beginning of the month and run through the entire month. Sextiles offer the opportunity for change.
They don’t guarantee it. You have to take ahold of the opportunities when they arise.
If you have a creative vision, December is a great time to start a new project. With Saturn tied to Neptune in a positive way, it’s a good time to break addictions and cultivate self-discipline.
5. MERCURY STATIONS DIRECT
Mercury will remain retrograde until December 6th. It reenters Scorpio on the 1st. Mercury in Scorpio will bring the opportunity to clarify our feelings and relationships.
The shadow phase that lasts until December 24th is a great time to discuss topics you’ve been avoiding with close relatives and friends.
Mercury’s direct motion will help you see problems with fresh clarity.
