StyleScope: December 2014


10_CAPRICORNCapricorn Yikes, there is a lot of work ahead of you, Capricorn. The good news: you will be able to influence the forces around you and push the needle in your favor. Seize opportunities to shine, put in the extra hours, celebrate the big and small accomplishments, and you will be thrilled with the results.

11_AQUARIUSAquarius This December, Aquarius, you will need to take the good with the bad. You will find yourself on the cusp of a wonderful romance but only if you can let go of your skepticism and trust your instincts. Meanwhile, your professional achievements will instigate a little jealousy among your competitive co-workers. Ignore their remarks and remember, you earned this success.

12_PISCESPisces Come January, you will reflect, “Where did December go?” The month is a flurry of business and, even better, romance. While you may be tempted to bend the rules at work, remember that honesty is the best policy and will ultimately lead you to greater gains. The same principle applies to your love life right now. Be forthright and open. Your lover and you will be happy you did.

1_ARIESAries Saturn is a major influencing force for the House of Aries. You’ll need to remain sharp and calm in order to balance its impact. Venus will ultimately intervene to help you be more patient and feel at peace. The timing is impeccable. Listen to your co-workers vent and your sympathetic ear will yield the results you need.

2_TAURUSTaurus Be bold this December, Taurus. Pitch that lofty project to higher-ups at work and you will be pleasantly surprised by the outcome. But, fortune favors the brave so, if you’re not a risk-taker, you cannot be disappointed if you do not reap the rewards. Hedge your bets on the luck front and log those overtime hours to ensure your success.

3_GEMINIGemini This month, you’ll find that the harder you work, the more luck you’ll have, Gemini. There is a windfall of positivity coming your way. Embrace it and it will generate more good energy for you. If any naysayers try to drag you down, turn up your nose and refuse to participate in their petty gossip.

4_CANCERCancer Take a moment, Cancer, to thank your lucky stars—or rather, your lucky Moon. The planet-ruler of the Cancer House, the Moon, will protect you from Saturn’s negative energy throughout December. Curb the influences that can cause large problems for you by buckling down, working harder and being generous with your time to help others.

5_LEOLeo You are brimming with energy, Leo, courtesy of your house’s planet exalt, Pluto. There are hardly enough outlets for you to channel that energy and your professional and personal horizons feel promisingly endless. Funnel this newfound vigor into a new workout routine, your holiday shopping and day-to-day work responsibilities.

6_VIRGOVirgo With Mercury moving out away from the House of Virgo, you will find yourself at odds in the office. Steer clear of the workplace rumors and focus on delivering your best work. This December, take solace in your family. The holidays and time spent with loved ones will re-charge your spirits, leaving you poised and ready to take on 2015 with gusto.

7_LIBRALibra Family and friends should be your focus this month. Your closest relatives and loved ones will create a network of incredible support for you—if you let them. Do not be afraid to ask for help when you need it. It is not a sign of weakness, but rather strength of character and faith in them.

8_SCORPIOScorpio What sounds ominous— the Black Moon—is actually Scorpio’s greatest ally throughout December, a month of great opportunities and fantastic outcomes. Seize the month to make some memories with your family. A short trip is just what you need to kick off a holiday season filled with merriment, joy and love.

9_SAGITTARIUSSagittarius Maybe it’s the holiday season or maybe it’s the influence of Venus but December is all about relationship building, either creating unexpected new ones or fostering those of your inner circle. When it comes to new acquaintances, you’ll be surprised at who draws you into a new friendship—perhaps that quiet co-worker. On the family front, meanwhile, you will feel a rush of mutual warmth and deep love.
