December 2013 Horoscope: What's more important than diarrhea?

Peace of mind must be more important than diarrhea.  Think of all the things you’ll stop doing immediately if you have diarrhea.  Now think of the stressful too muchness you’ll participate in to the point of  losing your mind!  Say, “excuse me I have diarrhea” and stop!

I’m taking a December holiday so I’ve given your horoscope for the whole month.  I’ll be back in January with your 2014 forecast!

The New Moon in Capricorn on December 2nd starts the month off on a note of cool-headed caution and a chance to slow the pace.  Integrity always wins over expediency with Capricorn.  

We’re lifting our horizons, drying our wings, and taking flight as adventurous spirits.  Messenger Mercury will be jumping to sometimes brilliant conclusions in fiery Sagittarius beginning Wednesday, December 4th.  He’ll race through Sagittarius in a short 19 days, unlike the more than two chilly months he had us swimming through Scorpio’s depths, thinking about profound issues and searching for solutions.  Our answers now come from the higher mind.  Our words sing at a higher octave.   

Warrior Mars puts on the robes of justice in Libra beginning Saturday, December 7th.  We’ll take those blueprints we perfected in Virgo to goddess of beauty, money, and creativity in Libra who’ll round out the sharp edges.  The warrior in us may get frustrated by Libra’s need for approval and cooperation from the whole team before she builds anything!  
The really big news this month comes on December 12th with the 2nd of 3 harmonious trines between farsighted Generous Jupiter and responsible Structured Saturn.  We’re offering our charitable gifts, but only to those who will honor and respect them.  Trace the growth of your hopes and dreams by studying the events occurring around these 3 dates:  7/17/13, 12/12/13, and 5/24/14.  Opportunity + Strategy = Good Fortune.

The Full Moon in Gemini on December 17th ushers in the flexible, non-conformist attitude that frees us to see life differently.

The Winter Solstice on December 21st marks the Sun’s entrance into Capricorn, and signals the return of light.  We’ve passed the longest night, and begin to celebrate the birth of Love incarnate.

Mercury rides the back of the sure-footed Capricorn Mountain Goat beginning Christmas Eve.  Our New Year’s resolutions will be ambitious, practical, organized with a side dish of shrewdness.  

♡ Date Night:  Venus in Capricorn and Mars in Libra
What exactly did you have in mind?  Venus in Capricorn is very clear about her intentions, and she sweetly demands that Mars do likewise.  We’re asked to align our desires with our values.  Integrity counts.  Be the first to say “I love you” (even if ego says you’re not sure, not 100%) and you invite truth to enter your relationship.  Your masculine energy is looking for love, beauty, and cooperation through partnership, while our rather aloof and personally ambitious feminine side wants the security of money in the bank.  If you don’t get these conflicts of interest out in the open, they’ll boil over in January.  

The Force of integrity is with you.
Here’s your individual Sun Sign horoscope for the entire month of December, 2013:

Aries ♈ (March 20-April 19)
Wings of faith sprout up on your  already zealous pioneering spirit when the messenger planet moves into fiery Sagittarius, your evangelical buddy, on December 4th.  New ideas that were triggered on the Sagittarius New Moon December 2nd catch fire.  Some promises may have gotten too big to keep, either by you or from another.  You won’t bother with much pragmatism until after December 21st, which brings a harvest in your house of career ambitions.  Jumpin’ Jupiter’s big plans get audited on December 12th, and the restraint you’ll feel will help you be patient (yes, even you!).  Christmas will be calm yet busy.   New Year’s Eve requires brinksmanship.

Taurus ♉ (April 20-May 20)
Under the Sagittarius New Moon on December 2nd you’ll get an urge to put more adventure into your life and into financial speculation (though you’re not a gambler!).  It’s a time when you can’t count on anyone else to keep order.  You’re surrounded by a sort of creative chaos that isn’t yet grounded.  Still, the impulse you feel on December 10th is thrilling and will free you.  If Mercury in Sagittarius (beginning December 4th) can keep his foot out of his mouth long enough to complete his sentences, you’ll be in for a wonderful new attitude. Your action energy aims for more loving pleasures when Warrior Mars enters Venus-ruled Libra on December 7th.  You may fear you’ve lost your common sense in a pink cloud, but is there really anything to gain by playing it safe?

Gemini ♊ (May 21-June 20)
When Warrior Mars enters the land of your buddy Libra on December 7th, a wind of brilliant ideas fills your sails.  You feel positively aggressive, yet sometimes thwarted.  Just remember that Libra is built for grace not speed, and while you’ll wish that things could move a little faster you’re not willing to be off balance.  Mercury, your ruler and muse, changes out of the soggy wetsuit he’s been in since September 28th and ignites your adventurous spirit when he moves into Sagittarius on December 4th.  You’re struck with absolute genius on December 10th.  It all comes to fruition on December 17th with the Full Moon in Gemini.  This is your personal harvest time.  

Cancer ♋ (June 21-July 21)
Virgo is usually the most organized and proficient CEO of all the zodiac signs, however that role falls to you around December 12th, and with the success that goes with it.  That’s a very lucky time for you that adds an even broader horizon to the opportunities that came your way July 17th.  Your nerves may be jumpy with so much going on this month, until you get solidly grounded and your life stabilized around the 24th.  It’s just that warrior Mars moved into an air sign on December 7th which brought you some mental confusion.  Thoughts will seem to leave your mind as quickly as they came in!  With the Winter Solstice on December 21st you life shifts. The Capricorn practicality works successfully for you in your career, and adds stability to your relationships.  

Leo ♌ (July 22-August 22)
You can trust the big ideas that jump into your mind on the New Moon December 2nd because two day later they get 18 days of free fuel.  Around December 10th you’re sparkling with brilliant ideas!  Let yourself brainstorm and play with the possibilities until you get some ground under you on Christmas Eve, even though it may be shaking in anticipation of the new paths opening up New Year’s Eve.  The middle of the month is good for successful business dealings, particularly fortunate on December 12th.  But the best day of the month for you is the 17th, when the Full Moon in Gemini helps you wrap up a deal that may involve your siblings or close community.  

Virgo ♍ (August 23-September 22)
You’re caught up in the excitement of a marching band that’s just a little too loud!  But you love the dance.  The New Moon in Sagittarius on December 2nd, and the move of Mental Mercury into Sagittarius two days later, will feel like creative chaos around you.  Step back regularly and enjoy the big picture it brings, but keep your own pace.  December 12th is a magical time of the month for you, adding brilliant strategy to your organized mind.  Where will this take you?  To a higher octave of discernment in which you commit to put your gifts only where they will be honored and respected.  Jupiter’s harmonious trine to Serious Saturn on December 12th expands your generosity of spirit and good will, and it also gives you that easy peaceful feeling!  The Winter Solstice, marked by the Sun’s move into Capricorn on December 21st, starts a very fortunate time of the year for you with a sunny disposition and deep sense of well being.  

Libra ♎ (September 23-October 22)
Sagittarius is the higher octave of the mind, and when the New Moon in Sagittarius occurs on December 2nd your horizons are lifted by optimistic positive thinking.  Two days later the god of communication moves into Sagittarius, brightening the ideas that have been on your drawing board since September 28th.  Like a skilled craftsman you’ve made systematic plans with great attention to detail while Messenger Mercury sojourned in Virgo (October 14th-December 6th), and now you have brains-on-fire for your project!  Finally, Mars enters Libra on December 7th where he’ll energize your muscles and light a fire under your actions until July 25th!  Wow!  Expect a miracle on December 10th wrapped as a surprise.  The Full Moon in Gemini on December 17th is a culmination time for your ideas and projects.  Ambitious Capricorn takes the lead starting with the Winter Solstice on the 21st.  Use it to climb that mountain to success one step at a time.  

Scorpio ♏  (October 23-November 21)
Since September 28th you’ve had Messenger Mercury in your sign, giving you mental clarity on old and new problems.  Beginning December 2nd and again on the 4th, your communications will speed up and projects will get off the ground.  You’ll feel anxiety about the rapid pace, like trying to slow a fireball rolling downhill!  Stay on the sidelines (which you prefer anyway!), and around December 12th Structured Saturn in your sign will be working in harmony with Jupiter’s charitable and optimistic bent.  Good strategy is your forte, and because it inclines you to be discriminating it will help you set better boundaries.  You’ll feel wonderful by the time of the Winter Solstice, marked by the Sun’s move into Capricorn, which occurs December 21st.  Good fortune for your career and good ideas for moving forward in 2014.

Sagittarius ♐ (November 22-December 20)
You must be saying, “this is the best birthday ever!”  The New Moon in your sign on December 2nd will be a free makeover of your self-esteem.  You’ve rarely felt this self-confident, which is what will ensure success of a project by December 17th, another powerhouse day for you.  Your mind becomes solar powered beginning December 4th when Messenger Mercury enters Sagittarius.  Your mental clarity is excellent for the next 19 days.  Don’t waste this opportunity to broaden your life just because brilliant ideas come to you so easily.  December 12th is a red letter day for serious-minded, even-tempered decisions that will inspire the kind of confidence in your abilities that bring a promotion or business success.  Really, Happy Happiest Birthday!

Capricorn ♑ (December 21-January 19)
Free power!  The New Moon in Sagittarius on December 2nd is an outrageous amount of energy that it lets you run your ideas on solar power that doesn’t cost a dime.  It doesn’t come with any forethought, so you’ll have to draw on the lucky idea that occurs to you on December 12th--a gold star day for you.  When Warrior Mars enters lovely Libra on December 7th, you’ll have to cool your heels and wait for your partner to join you.  From then on your guiding principle for action becomes justice and fair play, which combines beautifully with your Capricorn integrity.  Providence steps in to carry out your plans as the Sun moves into Capricorn on the Winter Solstice December 21st.  And it just gets better and better when Mental Mercury moves into your sign with enormous doses of mental clarity beginning December 24th. 19 days of sharp wit, disciplined thinking, and brilliant strategy.  Not to mention a wonderfully Happy Birthday month!

Aquarius ♒ (January 20-February 17)
Mercury in Sagittarius on December 4th starts three weeks of inspired imagination, with a brilliant cluster of ideas courtesy of the god of lightning on the 10th.  Surprising, unexpected, and very fortunate.   You have a jet stream tailwind at your back beginning with Mars moving into Libra on December 7th.  This marvelous ease of being at the right place at the right time will continue until July 25th!  It’s huge for you!  The Full Moon in Gemini on December 17th is a culminating time of bringing something to harvest that you started in late September.  The Winter Solstice, marked by the Sun’s move into Capricorn, occurs December 21st and is a grounding time of year for you.  Not as exciting, but very stable.

Speak up shy Pisces, the world needs your poetic voice more than ever in 2014.
