You’ll want to be very careful on the road in the week following the December 24 Moon in Capricorn, your solar third house, especially if you live in an area prone to severe weather. Difficult planetary alignments and distractions could trigger an accident, and mechanical problems with your vehicle are also possible. If you suspect a problem, take your car into the shop without delay. Family life will bring a few pleasant surprises after Venus enters Aquarius, your solar fourth house, on the 20th. In addition to that, you’ll enjoy being home and in the company of your favorite people, so consider taking a few days or a week off just to be with them. But be cautious in the kitchen during the days surrounding the Moon. Relatives could test your patience around the time of the Moon, but earlier in the month your conversations will be pleasant. With Mars continuing to advance in Virgo, your solar eleventh house, your social life will remain in high gear. Consider hosting a holiday get-together of your own after Venus enters Aquarius, and invite a few neighbors to stop by the first or second week of December. The December 10 Moon (lunar eclipse) in Gemini lights up your solar eighth house, just three days before Mercury turns direct in Sagittarius, your solar second house. With this emphasis on your money houses, you can expect some very nice gifts, including the possibility of a year-end bonus for you, your mate, or both of you. Double-check your gift list, though. Otherwise you may forget a friend or two.
