Your Monthly Horoscopes: December 2018

Horoscopes

Have you been met with miscommunication, unexpected travel delays, issues with technology, unaccounted for events - or a general feeling of being overwhelmed lately? Blame it on the retrograde. Mercury retrograde was back in full effect as of mid-November, and wreaked the most havoc in the signs Pisces, Sagittarius, Gemini, and Virgo.


Luckily for us, the third and final Mercury retrograde of this year is on its way out as of December 6th, and with its exit, makes room for the positive vibes from the lovely planet Jupiter to enter. Jupiter will be in its own sign of Sagittarius for the first time in 12 years and it will be influencing all of us in very good ways. Most of us will be ending the year with a bang and setting ourselves up for success in the year to come. Thus, the theme of the month is clarity.

The big focus for you, Gemini, is relationships and contracts. You may have already felt the influence of this starting last month. But with Mercury going retrograde mid-November, you would have felt a sort of reassessing and second-guessing.

With Mercury transitioning into Scorpio and finding stability on December 6th, you will find yourself focusing on your body and how you literally move through the world. Towards the end of the month, you will come more out of your shell and want to become the life of the party. So go ahead and sparkle bright at that holiday party! Looking good is the name of the game though, so you will be ultra aware of that extra cookie as your power is clearly in your body awareness at this time.

When it comes to relationships, this is an ideal time to finalize contracts. Getting married in December? Fortune whispers in your ear at every turn and you will find yourself on top of your game for the wedding day. If you are in a partnership that has been on edge lately, you will find your mind working incredibly sharp in December and helping you make a clear decision on your needs. Do you know that you need to leave a relationship and feel like you can't do it alone? Fear not, the Universe is in your favor to help you find stable footing in life and love. This is a time when you will know for sure if this partner is the one for you.

Passionate Mars has been in Pisces since mid-November. But with Mercury having been in retrograde since then, you have been feeling the push and pull making you second-guess yourself. After the 6th of December, Mars will have more clarity in your chart, giving you eagle vision on finances. Take hold of your finances, or they will take hold of you! If you have a reliable friend who is financially savvy, this is an opportune time to ask for their help. You will be glad you did come tax season!

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

Summer is coming to an end, and it's officially time to start the fall activities. And with the start of a new season comes new movies and shows. One, in particular, is the final season of Netflix's Dear White People, airing September 22. A great thing about this show is that it sparks healthy conversation. Past seasons have explored topics like double consciousness, sexuality, and the Me Too Movement, but it's done it in a way that still allows the show to feel relatable and fun.

Period pain. Lawd. Could there be something that is more annoying, especially since it happens every 28-30 days? Like, c'mon. If you've ever wondered about the science behind it all, basically, we need our uterus to contract, so that it can shed the lining that accumulated, just in case we conceived in between cycles. And so, what basically happens is, the prostaglandins levels in our system increase which trigger inflammation and also period pain, so that the blood is able to flow from our bodies.

One of my favorite things about the changing seasons are the new vibes and new energies that change welcomes with it. September represents a transition from the white sand beaches, bottomless brunches, and undeniable romantic vibes long nights, festivals, and impromptu road trips often thought of when we think about the summer. In its place comes romanticism in a different approach. Pumpkin spice anything, the excuse to cuddle up, and the leaves of the trees turning warm shades sparks joy in a different way as fall begins. Perhaps what I am most excited about though are the 2021 wellness trends that come with it.

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with some folks about songs that should've been official singles yet never were. One of the ones that I shared was Mariah Carey's "All Alone in Love" (a song that she wrote when she was only 15, by the way). To me, it's a perfect way to intro this piece because I have had enough personal experiences and counseled enough people to know that it is very possible to be in a relationship with someone — and still feel quite alone in it. Not because your partner doesn't love you. Not because they're up to some totally f'ed up shenanigans. It's just…even though you signed up for a true and lasting partnership, somehow you now feel some of the very words that define what being alone can feel like: unattended, detached, unassisted, semi-compassionless and perhaps even abandoned on some levels.
