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.

Friendly Jupiter gives you the light to shine brightly in the second half of December. From December 6th and on, you will feel more solid with your decisions and commitments. All of the unfinished business with any real estate and family matters will be cleaned up and back on track.

Mercury, usually hovering around Sagittarius at this time of year, gets an extra push from Jupiter, giving your naturally happy attitude even more of a kick. Be careful of going overboard though! Jupiter through the 5th can also signal a time when you may gamble yourself and your possessions in a metaphorical roll of the dice. This has been a very emotionally draining time for the world for the past year or so. So with your Jupiter influences going through your chart, you may want to bust through too quickly without evaluating things more closely first.

This extra push goes for your health as well. You may be telling yourself that you will get back into that exercise regimen that you had let lapse previously. But remember to go slow and keep the momentum.

You may also find yourself attracting people who may need your help physically, whether it be helping them train for a marathon or helping an elderly family member with some daily needs.

With Venus in the 4th and in harmony with Mars, you may be feeling dynamically inclined to "romance" a new partner or current partner at home. With family relationships, you will have a desire to create a safe haven for family members in need.

If you are the "star" already at work, you will have attention drawn on you to organize holiday parties and team-oriented activities. If you are more low-key at your job, you may be drawn towards a side job that may become a full-time career towards the middle of 2019.

Recently, I watched a YouTube video that was so ridiculous (to me, anyway) that I'm not gonna even link y'all to it. The gist was it featured a woman who was going on and on about us not needing men anymore because we've got technology. When another woman refuted her point by bringing up the fact that it takes both men and women to keep humanity going, I thought about a woman in my own world who is currently so fed up with guys that she's now named her vibrator, claiming that is the only "man" she needs. Chile.

When we think of R&B, we think of soul. Soul, by definition, is emotional or intellectual energy or intensity, especially as revealed in a work of art or an artistic performance. Black people are soul. Everything about us. Our hair. Our energy. Our skin. And, without a doubt, the creativity that courses through every inch of who we are. So, when it comes to our music, spiritual experiences are often what we call them. Makes sense, for there are no other people who remain unbroken the way we do. And every so often, an artist comes along who seems to be the physical manifestation of all that we are.

In xoNecole's Finding Balance, we profile boss women making boss moves in the world and in their respective industries. We talk to them about their business, and most of all, what they do to find balance in their busy lives.

As the summer comes to an end, we must welcome the time for change. Say goodbye to summer and hello to cooler weather! And we know what that means ladies: We have to switch up our fashion trends, how we wear our hair, and even our skincare routines. When it comes to skincare, we as Black queens have to make sure our products are on point for all the seasons. It is crucial for us to protect our blessed and melanated beauty.

You would think with the amount of trends and dollars being put behind beauty brands, that there would be better representation in the medical field to help us understand our skin better from the jump. Unfortunately, Black physicians only make up 5% of the physician population, and if we want to talk about Black dermatologists specifically, well that number is even lower.

It can be more than challenging trying to balance childcare, COVID-19 prevention (hey, Delta), and work. It's hard enough not worrying about whether your kid's school will cancel in-person classes or shut down altogether while facing the not-so-usual growing pains of children and teens who are forced to live in whatever phase of a pandemic we're in right now. (I mean, is it really post-pandemic? Is it halfway done or just beginning? And what's "normal" about this "new" environment?)

Moms, we feel your pain.
