Compared to the rest of the zodiac, you get a relatively easy ride this month! Things might be a little strained as Mercury retrograde moves through your interpersonal connection zone, but use that as an opportunity to check in with the people you love most. After the events of the past month, your expert listening skills and overall comforting demeanor will be a welcome addition to any holiday gathering.

On December 13, a Gemini full moon links up with Mars in Aquarius and Jupiter in Libra to revive your faith in humanity. It activates the houses of your horoscope associated with your psyche, intimacy, and spirituality, pulling them together to help you clear out any baggage you’ve been lugging around unnecessarily. The moon will be opposite Saturn in your everyday habits sector, so your inner realist might try to tell you otherwise, but good vibes from Uranus allow you to make a clean break from your emotional past.

Later, on December 29, Mercury retrograde and Pluto team up with a Capricorn new moon that resets the vibe in all your closest relationships. Under this moon, you’re able to approach your partnerships (romantic, business, or otherwise) from a place of pragmatism. Support from Mars and Neptune in Pisces allows you to pick up on others’ sensitivities. Pisces is your exploration sector, so don’t be afraid to ask questions about what’s really at stake. Chances are, it’s more than just what’s in your stocking.
