Welcome to Erica’s DECEMBER STAR SCOPES.  My StarScopes are an alchemy of astrological signs, tarot insight, and angelic guidance.  As it is December, it a month filled with thoughts of angels and faeries, no matter how you choose to celebrate.  So this month I have used my Fairy Tarot paired with Archangel Oracle cards to bring you their joy and guidance.


December’s ruling angel is Anael, the angel of romantic love, great news if you have plans under the mistletoe. Anael has dominion over the air, so love is in the air. And of course, her planet is Venus.

SAGITTARIUS 23rd November-21st December

Amidst all the hurly burly of the celebration season, which includes your birthday, take some time to check in with yourself and have a life review. What will you leave behind and what new lessons, skills and joys will you take forward into your year and into the new year? Make a plan to celebrate you. Step free from any mental nagging voices. Instead embrace your achievements and frame those moments when you made a difference in the world. Now go out, and do it again!

CAPRICORN  22nd December-20th January

Flexibility will be your ally this month. If things don’t seem to be going your way, or turning out how you hoped be prepared to widen your parameters. This may include evaluating information that you may formerly have rejected, or explanations delivered without tact. Instead of viewing it as criticism, you can turn your fortunes around by turning your thinking around. Ok, so the information is a challenge. However, challenges are often the best thing that can happen because they challenge us to step out of ego and see the advantage in doing things differently.  You can’t change the situation with the same mindset that created it.

AQUARIUS 21st January-19th Feb

December is a month to find the balance between tough love and compassion. This is particularly true if someone owes you money or favours. The loving part of you wants to be lenient, and the logical side wants to be repaid so that you can pay off your debts. It’s time to have “that” conversation. Nothing is gained by allowing resentment to build up inside. In fact, it can ruin friendships. Sit down over a coffee and explain that you were delighted to help, but now you have needs and they should be met. Draw up a payment plan if necessary, but make sure that the process is formalised and the books balanced.

PISCES 20th February-20th March

Your focus may be divided between work and home this month. There is lots to do, and plenty to learn. The holiday season brings us tinsel and tears. The tinsel is the joy, the bustle and the challenge to get everything done. Sometime the tears come when we remember years gone by with loved ones who are either no longer on the earth, or are separated from us by circumstance and distance. Hold onto the knowledge that no matter what the distance, love is a constant. You are in their thoughts, as they are in yours. Powered by love, all the obstacles you encounter fade into their proper place.

ARIES 21st March-20th April

Value for money might be your motto this month. It’s time to value yourself. Money might be tight, with many demands of the season to spend on family and friends. However, you need to nurture yourself, and you need to know that you deserve it and you can. The key is to manage finances wisely. Try making a pact to buy presents for each other with a spending limit. You’ll be amazed what you can get for five pounds if you look around. Most of us have too much clutter anyway. Make it fun, and do it with love. There’s the added value.

TAURUS 21st April-21st May

No matter how you celebrate the month, whatever wisdom tradition you follow, and even if you just enjoy the tinsel and lights, make sure you get in touch with what it really means. So often it becomes a spending spree that turns hollow once the new year arrives. Make this year matter. Put some purpose behind it. Being an earth sign ruled by Venus you love your little luxuries. Get even more enjoyment by sharing the fun with friends. If you are going to make new year resolutions, get organised so you can realise them when the time comes.

GEMINI 22nd May-21stJune

You have a full moon in your favour, Gemini, do not look a gift horse in the mouth. If you are offered an opportunity to co-operate on a project, a prize or a present is forthcoming, or a downright lucky streak appears, say thank you and be open to receiving. You do deserve. Yes, someone else could have won it, but they didn’t. It’s your turn. Make sure you use it wisely for something you’d love to do which will allow you to grow into good fortune in the new year.

CANCER 22nd June-23rdJuly

You know the saying: “be careful what you wish for?” Well, a modification to: “be clear what you wish for” is the focus you need this month. If you’ve felt through the year that things are building up for a change, but you haven’t seen how to move forward or to make changes, that’s all about to change. So, be careful what you wish for. And once you you’re clear about what you want, take steps to bring it about. You could start the new year walking a whole new route.

LEO 24th July-23rd August

As the end of the year draws nigh, make a decision. Take that idea or dream out of the box and plan some steps that might get you started. In your heart of hearts, you already know what is needed, you just need to get a grip on those nagging doubts and banish any past disappointments. The past is done. Make peace with it and let it go. Do what you know is right for you. If necessary share your thoughts with a trustworthy and compassionate friend or mentor. Be prepared to succeed. And then, settle back to enjoy the holiday season with family and friends.

VIRGO 24th August-23rd September

Lady luck could be your companion this month, bringing enough to balance the books and pay off debts. Don’t block her energy by saying: “it never happens to me!”  It may not have, yet. There is always opportunity for surprise announcements and wonderful synchronicity. Life can change in an instant, it’s our job to allow it to flow into our lives and use the gift we are given with a grateful heart. You could start the new year doing something you’ve always dreamed of.

LIBRA 24th September-23rd October

Open your heart to love, and this is a great time to do so. December is a month for following your passion, both in your love life and career. To attract what you desire, draw on your wisdom and emotional strength to allow doors to close on old relationships. Leaving baggage behind is such a relief. It leaves you free to birth a new life, expanding your career skills and feeling the strength and love of family ties. This month, choose from your heart.

SCORPIO 24th October-22nd November

You are a deeply feeling water sign. Use the full moon on the third to look beyond the obvious. If you feel you haven’t got the full picture, trust your instincts and do some research. Do not be pushed into a decision if something doesn’t feel right. Take your time. Check the facts, and wait until you feel certain. As the new year rolls in, you will have a clear head, clear intentions and plenty of enthusiasm to drive confidently into your future.
