Leo December 2017 Horoscope
Leo December 2017: Gliding through November, it has seemed like the year is just wrapping up gently. Well, that is not going to be the case, as our final Mercury retrograde is going to happen for most of December. Don’t fret, however, as December has a lot in store for you. Venus is going to be a very strong influence, and your romantic and creative side will be exploding in direct contract to the retro.
To begin with, it has been a crazy year with many ebbs and tides, but more than anything you have much to be thankful for and many blessings. When we get to this part of the year, it is important to take a step back and see how much we have grown in all aspects of our lives: emotionally, spiritually, mentally, etc. Evaluate where you have come from, and make a list of goals for the coming year.
Leo December Horoscope – Mercury Retrograde
When talking about this December, the most important event is the Mercury retrograde from December 3rd to December 22nd. It is extremely important to prepare for a retrograde, but doubly so for this one. It is coupled with the stress that comes for many of us during the holidays. Preparation is the key. Now is the time to get your holiday shopping done, for example, and you should consider gathering your lists and see how much you can get done online before the chaos that Mercury will bring in the coming month.
Furthermore, it is very important to arm yourself with tools to deal with anxiety and stress. Find a quiet place in your home and good time each day where you can devote a few minutes to prayer and meditation. This will allow you to do a complete reboot each day and to cast out the negativity from the day before. Here are a prayer and a meditation mantra that are extremely helpful to say each day during December:
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.

Leo December Horoscope – Full Moon
A very interesting event happens on the very first day of the retrograde – there is a full moon in Gemini. This will provide a little counter to the retro, and will provide a spark to your social life!
Now to the good stuff! From December 1st to the 25th, Venus transits Sagittarius. For you, this retrograde has a powerful force fighting back for you. This transit will provide you with one of the most romantic and creative times all year, and even the chaos that the retrograde brings can’t bring you down. Yes, there is chaos lurking, but if you pay it no mind and embrace your romantic and artistic sides, it has no power over you.
On December 9th, Mars joins Jupiter in Scorpio. You find that you are energized at home, preparing for family parties, knocking off your to-do lists, and maybe even starting some DIY projects.
Leo December Horoscope – New Moon
A new moon in Sagittarius on December 18, joining Mercury retro will impact you in regards to romance and creativity. There will be new opportunities in both aspects of your life. Be wary, however, the retro still has its pull, so keep any important decisions on these things until after the 22nd.
On December 20th, Saturn enters Capricorn, and will be there for two and a half years. There will be an increase in your formal responsibilities, and your career duties might skyrocket during this time. There will be opportunities regarding your work life, and for your career to take a larger role in your life, if you want that.
As a power behind the scenes, you excel. It is not to your benefit to appear to be aggressive, self-serving or impatient. Patience and the ability to put yourself in the other guy’s shoes before you react to their comments are the answers to getting the stability and peace of mind that you seek.
The 22nd marks the end of the Mercury retrograde, so mark this day on your calendar. Wake up and take a new look on the world, and feel refreshed and reborn. In many ways, this will feel like the start of the new year for you.
On Christmas Day, Venus joins Saturn in Capricorn. Your romantic life could very well take the next step on this day!
