Happy Birthday Sagittarius! With the Sun shining on you for most of the month, Sags enjoy the warmth of attention and adulation in December. Not to be mistaken as self-centered, Sags now thrive in a self-focused energy devoted to physical, spiritual, and psychological wellness. Venus enters the scene to enhance your appearance and smooth the jagged edges of your personality. The darker side of this planet encourages self-indulgence and overspending. Do you seriously you want to spend January dragging yourself out of a caloric or financial hole? Can you honestly afford to go that BIG this month? The first half of December will involve a ton of chat, mostly electronic, and much of it tediously boring. Information overload leaves you feeling buried in minutia. Don’t feel like you have to respond to every text instantaneously. It would do you good to wait a beat.
December serves as a period of introspection and ego softening before the spotlight shines on you during your birthday. Rely on December’s gift of unusually keen emotional perceptions because your trusty analytical skills fail in December. You find yourself drifting away into future visions and then startling back to reality. Less expressive externally, but churning on the inside, Capricorn feels misunderstood, unseen, and unheard for much of December. If you want someone to know it; say it.

Your best moments this month will be the ones you spend alone.
