Aries December 2017 Horoscope
Aries December 2017: The Holiday Season gets the accompaniment of an inconvenient Mercury retrograde this month, but with some proper planning you can come out of it for the wiser. The Aries December horoscope is looking like a very hectic time for you, with many planetary movements that are going to have their effects upon your life. After a few chaotic weeks, the month ends with the joyous celebration of Christmas, and a very positive change for you!
Aries December Horoscope – Mercury Retrograde
To start the month off, we have the last Mercury retrograde of the year on December 3rd, when Mercury turns retrograde in Sagittarius. This is going to last all the way through December 22nd.
The Mercury retrograde is all about planning and preparation. Because this retrograde is coupled with the holiday season, there is the potential for even more stress and chaos. You know the dates of December 3rd to the 22nd, so plan ahead. Do your shopping before the retrograde occurs.
It is important that you are ready to handle the stress of this double whammy of the retro and the stress of the holidays. Try to make a very concerted effort to take some time each day to meditate or pray. Here is a prayer and a meditation mantra that you can use to help prepare for the stress of the holiday retro:
Prayer for Inner Peace:
God, who is more than we can ever comprehend,
help us to seek you, and you alone.
Help us to stand before all that we could do
and seek what you would do, and do that.
Lift from us our need to achieve all that we can be
and instead, surrender to what you can be in us.
Give us ways to refrain from the busyness
that will put us on edge and off center, give us today your peace.
OM RAM RAMAYA NAMAHA (with Mala Beads)
Use this mantra chant to rid yourself of negative energy and stress, and it will bring in thoughts of positivity and calm. “Om Ram Ramaya Namaha” is a very powerful mantra that can be used to combat the mightiest of negative energies.
Remember that the retrograde is going to create chaos, and simply be ready for that. Last minute plans are going to change, plans will get canceled, and friends and relatives might seem to let you down. Just remember that this is a temporary state and that everyone is being affected. Be bountiful in your forgiveness and charity and use prayer and meditation to refuel and refresh each day.
Aries December Horoscope – Full Moon
On December 3rd there is a full moon in Gemini. It marks the culmination of some project or undertaking that took a lot of work and diligence on your part. However, don’t get overly excited about this completion at the moment, and wait until after the retro to finish what you have been working on for so long.
The full moon for your Aries December horoscope will have a delightful side effect, as you will be much more in the mood to get out there and mingle around this date. You feel that warmth of the holidays come over you and want to extend good will to others. Embrace it, and it is a good start to showing that the retro can’t keep you down.
On December 9th, Mars enters Scorpio, and will be joining Jupiter now. This is a very positive transition for you, as you feel a real sense of invigoration. You become a sort of “go-getter” and everything, every task you have before you, will need to get completed. This is a physical boost as well, and your energy will be very high.
Aries December Horoscope – New Moon
There is a new moon on December 18th in Sagittarius. What a twisted set of events this is, as Mercury is retro in Sagittarius for this new moon. Yes, there will be exciting new opportunities, particularly those that expand your mind or your experiences, but you might want to acknowledge them, but wait until after the 22nd to engage these possibilities, as the retro could cause cancellations or disappointments.
You are kind, considerate and accommodating when you relax your judgment of others. Problems arise if you make mountains out of molehills and scare yourself into becoming snobbish. People who have achieved prominence will begin accepting you in their circle.
Saturn is moving into Capricorn on December 20th, and this will last for the next two and a half years. This is going to cause your professional / career area to greatly intensify. Your concentration and work ethic move up a gear, and though this transit has its bumps in the road, your ambition will rectify any issues along the way. Prepare for a major boost in your career!
On December 22nd the retro is over, Mercury gets back into direct mode. Time to finish up any holiday shopping and slam wide open the front door of life and take a deep breath. On Christmas day, Venus joins Saturn in Capricorn, and beyond the miracle of this day, your life will get an added benefit of a romantic possibility, and a lowering of stress with your daily life.
