Libra December 2017 Horoscope
Libra December 2017: The calm, uneventfulness of November was a bit misleading if you thought that was how the rest of the year was going to unfold. December is actually going to be one of the busiest times of the year, astrologically.
As we enter the end of this year and start a new one, it is a perfect time to consider how we have grown over the last year, and what track our life is on. Have you made progress in achieving your goals and dreams? Are you growing spiritually, mentally, and emotionally? Are you taking time to take care of your health with proper diet and exercise? Are you making the world a better place each day? Are the people around you positive influences? Take stock in all of those things, but also remember that it is most important to think about all of the things that we are thankful for and count our blessings.
Libra December Horoscope – Mercury Retrograde
Now, December has a number of contradictory forces at work, and none more so than our last Mercury retrograde of the year. This will be starting on December 3rd, and lasting until December 22nd.
In terms of this retrograde, it is important to deal with it through preparation and planning. Remember, this is going to be occurring during the holiday season, which can be the most stressful time of the year anyway, so it is a very powerful retrograde.
The very first thing you should consider is getting your holiday shopping done now. Get your lists organized, and consider trying more online shopping, which can be done much more efficiently and quickly.
Next, try to make time each day for prayer and meditation. Find a quiet space in your home where you can dedicate a few minutes every day to peace and calm. Here is a prayer and meditation mantra we recommend saying every day in 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.

During the holiday season and especially with this retrograde, plans are going to get moved, postponed or canceled. You might start to think that friends and family members are out to get you, but that is not the case. Remember that we are all in this world together, and that the stressful times don’t last. This is the time of the year where charity and forgiveness are more important than ever.
Libra December Horoscope – Full Moon
Some good news in regards to the first day of the retro is that there is a full moon in Gemini. Your networking and communication skills will get a boost, so this positive energy that you will be exuding will be a welcome force against the chaos that the retrograde can bring. You will feel incredibly optimistic, and feel capable of enjoying the simple moments for what they are.
Going back to the start of the month, on December 1st, Venus is joining Mercury in Sagittarius, and it will be there until Christmas Day. This is a good time for a budding romance, and for creativity. You also have a desire for the exotic, perhaps trying new restaurants, or diving into the study of another culture. This yearning to expand your worldview should help keep the tumultuous aspects of the retro at bay.
On December 9th, Mars joins Jupiter in Scorpio, and it will be there until January 26th. This transit will provide you with an enormous boost in productivity, along with a need to study and expand your skills at work or with other projects. Knowledge is craved during this transit.
Libra December Horoscope – New Moon
On December 18, there is a new moon in Sagittarius, with Venus still there. It’s a time for extremely interesting thinking and surprisingly successful maverick behavior. There will be an opportunity for a new artistic endeavor, or maybe even a new romantic interest.
Saturn enters Capricorn on December 20th, and it will stay for about two and a half years. Those around you will benefit from your support during this time, and if you are open to it, you will find it a blessing to be at service to others.
December 22nd brings the end of the Mercury retrograde, so make a note of this day and celebrate! A few days later, on Christmas Day, Venus joins Saturn in Capricorn, and you feel an overwhelming sense of peace and see beauty all around you.
