December starts with the Moon in Taurus, an Earth sign, which means that good food, comfort and security will be necessary. A beautiful and cozy home will be much appreciated as Venus is the ruler of the sign. Christmas is the perfect opportunity to add decorations and artistic items to your surroundings.
Money matters should run well but with the Sun in Capricorn from December 21, you can expect not to be able to spend as much as you would have liked on Christmas gifts. Practicality will be preferred over glamourous and costly items.
Traditions and family gatherings will bring support and a feeling of belonging.
