If you can avoid holiday travel this year, do it, or at least plan your trip well away from the December 24 Moon in Capricorn. Delays and cancellations are likely within several days of the Moon. Weather can also make local travel difficult, so be especially careful on the road. You’ll also be more than usually susceptible to a cold or virus the week of the Moon. Take precautions. December’s best event is Venus, which enters your sign on the 20th. This beautiful influence enhances your powers of attraction as well as your electric aura. People will be drawn to you more than ever, although few will know the reason why. Keep the secret and use it to fulfill your wishes. Relationships benefit from two planetary events this month. Mercury turns direct in Sagittarius, your solar eleventh house, on the 13th, making it easier to coordinate schedules with friends. A few days earlier, the December 10 Moon (lunar eclipse) in Gemini, your solar fifth house, re-energizes November’s social trend. This eclipse also has the potential to begin (or end) a dating relationship, as committed couples reconnect. Get your gift list and budget together early in December so you can take advantage of sales. That will help avoid the temptation to splurge on family. You can find almost everything on your list if you shop on the 5th. Since you’ll be seeing so many friends this month, set aside a day for crafts or baking so you have an inexpensive supply of small gifts for them.
