Aries Monthly Horoscope: December 2018Your self-awareness and outlook on life has had quite a few changes this year, and you have opened many new doors and made new contacts – this month you will have to step back, reassess, regroup and make sense of things. It’s been quite a roller coaster year, and this is a time to take stock.
You may go through quite an eccentric phase this month; you are feeling rather creative and inspired, and at the same time quite radical – make sure that any decisions you make do not rub your superiors or parents up the wrong way. Your brutal honesty may also open up some cans of worms that will make life tricky, so try your best not to let impulsiveness get the better of you.
There is a feeling that you are seizing back the initiative and redrawing boundaries in your life to establish some new norms – there is a desire to set the record straight and put people in their place. In family life, it is you who will have to put your foot down and organise and provide some discipline.
This is a very fast-paced end to the year, and it can get very disorganised (in terms of errands and events) – you do not have the mind to deal with details, and you may want to throw your hands up in the air and let it be. It can take willpower to keep concentration and focus on what you need to do.
If you have made changes this year, this is the time when the chickens come home to roost, and suddenly the consequences are staring you in the face and you think, “Wow!” There is no turning back, and although you may want to, you cannot deny that you are now in a brave new world, and some bridges have be burnt.
Aries Love December 2018
Unforeseen circumstances may mean you and your partner spend quite a bit of time running in opposite directions this December. Work and family commitments that arise suddenly may result in you spending time apart.
Travel this month is fraught with obstacles, and so you are best off not leaving things until too late or possibly limiting your reliance on public transport as you travel home for the holidays.
New relationships may have their first real test as you come into direct contact with each other’s family this holiday season – there can be some tricky and awkward moments, and it may feel suddenly that you are miles apart and not suited at all. You need to remember that you are not your parents, your hometown or your culture; you have your own unique identity.
There can be problems getting on with your partner’s friends, and arguments can erupt suddenly for no good reason.
Often this December it is best to storm off by yourself, cool down, and then forget the whole thing – excessive discussion is not always helpful and may result in over-analysis and things being said that cannot be taken back. Give each other space and try not to take your frustrations out in the relationship arena. It is a bit of a pressure cooker for you right now, and feelings are intense; that is why letting off steam via a walk, sports or some vigorous activity is the best way to deal with feelings – arguing is just not helpful.
Aries Career December 2018
Making decisions can be hard right now, and so any career or business decisions should be delayed until the new year as you may not have full information, and when you do get more information, you may want to change your mind and switch paths.
You may feel quite a weight on your shoulders in terms of decisions you must make about career and life path in the New Year. You may have conflicted emotions about the changes you have made this year and where you think things are going. Your work life is still in a state of flux, and there are many important decisions you will need to make to ensure that new starts and new ventures can fulfil their promise. Remember that this is an adventure phase in your life – not everything you try will work out, but it is pushing the envelope and making leaps of faith at times that is so important in opening doors and rediscovering your power.
Aries have a very powerful need right now to feel as if their role in life (and this need not just be a professional role: it may be your role as a parent or housewife) truly reflects who you are and what you aspire to. You desire more power to shape your destiny, and you are going to keep readjusting at work and home until you feel the balance of power has shifted back towards you. This may mean taking on new staff, a new partner or placing pressure on your boss for better pay and terms.
This year you reach a fork in the road in terms of your destiny, and you have initiated many changes, and yet things are not yet ideal. This December is an ideal time to think about your strategy for the next year, and this should be a detailed strategy where you take all possible events and reactions from others into account.
For those who hold positions of power, this month is a test of how you use that power – be decisive and bold, and do not shy away from tough choices. The stronger you are, the more you will be respected.
You should not be discouraged by the manner in which things seem very complicated right now – you cannot make an omelette without breaking eggs as they say. Every action will have a reaction and sometimes the reaction to decisions you make will cause a backlash – prepare for it, and do not shy away.
2017 will again hold massive opportunities and chances for you to rise to the top like the cream, and so what began this year is a work in progress ... an exciting one.
