Today's Horoscope This week This month
Pisces horoscope for December 2023
Right now, the fastest planet in the solar system is Venus and over the course of the month, as she races to catch up with the rest of the faster planets, she is covering a lot of ground. Venus, who from June to October had spent four months in your work sector, will spend time in three different areas of your chart this month, spreading her magic and ability to turn desires into reality around. Venus will begin the month in your financial sector, where until leaving on 5th December will be working as the planet of money to fuel your financial confidence, update your financial desires and expectations and work to turn those desires into reality. With the Sun, Mercury, Mars and even the dwarf planet Ceres having already moved through, the basics have been done.
It is then that 10 days after the last planet left your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery, something that last year brought all planetary activity here for the year to a close, Venus will finally return on 5th December. This is where Venus will spend the majority of the month and at the same time that the last month of this professional year gains some serious momentum, until leaving on 30th December she will not only continue to fuel a desire for adventure but will work to turn desires into reality. This can help to balance what is likely to be a busy month. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of December in your career sector, but this year Mars is here as well.
Mars returned during the Sun's first full day here, with his return on 24th November firing up your warrior and competitive spirit along with the drive to make things happen. With Mars not leaving until early January, even though the Sun will leave your career sector on 22nd December in order to spend Christmas, New Year and the holiday period in your friendship sector, the warrior planet of the cosmos will continue to fire things up professionally and competitive spirit in general. This is where Venus will end the year when she leaves an adventurous part of your chart and returns to your career sector on 30th December. Even Mercury, who will leave on 2nd December will retrograde back on 23rd December and will end the year here as well. This professional year won't have an endpoint and instead will continue to roll into 2024.
Love & RomanceWhile there is no planetary activity in your romantic sector and you only have the asteroid Juno in your relationship sector, both matters of the heart and your relationships punch well above their weight this month. On the romantic front, this is thanks to having Venus, the planet of love in an adventurous part of your chart from 5th December to 30th December and to a romantically charged Full Moon on 27th December. Held back by a retrograde phase Venus, the planet of love is late to return to an adventurous part of your chart this year and even though this is likely to be a busy month, she will be determined to make up for lost time.
A host of planets have already moved through, but while Mars has done his best to fuel a passion for adventure, only Venus is going to inject the spirit of romance into the mix. Having the Moon move through your romantic sector from 27th December to 29th December and leave during Venus' last full day in an adventurous part of your chart was always going to see the spirit of romance and adventure spike during her final days. That this is not only a Full Moon but that it falls during the holiday period, is going to give this additional juice. As Venus will be leaving a day later and there will be no Full Moons in your romantic sector in 2024, this is something that needs to be seized.
Meanwhile, while only a minor player, as the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships, having Juno in your relationship sector was always going to be an advantage. Especially as she has not only already formed a partnership with Jupiter in your communication sector but a retrograde turn in January will keep her here until August. This has created a subtle but strong link on the communication and relationship fronts that will continue for months. There will be a chance to take advantage of this when the Moon makes its last visit to your relationship sector for the year from 4th December to 7th December, before returning on New Year's Day.
Business & CareerBecause the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of December in your career sector, the solar spotlight is always on your career and professional situation, matters and options at this time of year. However, because the Sun will always leave on the December solstice, he is gone by Christmas and as was the case last year, this is often when all planetary activity on the career front and in your two professional houses come to an end. This allows you to put maximum effort into the final weeks of the professional year and whether you are working through the holiday period or not, take your foot off the gas. However, there is a need to be prepared from the start that this won't be the case this year.
The Sun will leave on 22nd December, but it was just a day after his return last month that Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos returned for his first visit to your career sector in two years and he is not leaving until early next month. Mars will have his foot on the gas for the rest of this professional year and right through the holiday period, with the conditions only improving as he works to fire up your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit. What will help you take a more measured approach during the holiday period is Mercury, who while he will leave your career sector on 2nd December will retrograde back in on 23rd December.
In retrograde motion for the rest of the year, Mercury will have the brakes on but not enough to hold Mars back, but enough to give you some control. It is before Mercury returns that the Moon will move through from 12th December to 14th December, with a New Moon on 13th December set to create a lot of forward momentum. However, it is while the Moon is making its last visit to your work sector for the year from 29th December to 31st December that the final piece will fall into place. It is while the Moon is here that Venus will return to your career sector on 30th December, where she will team up with Mars for the first time here in 17 years. Before then, the Moon's visit to your work sector from 2nd December to 4th December will help to get this stunning month off to a good start across the income, work and career fronts.
MoneyWhile there is some competition between the two sides of the financial fence from the start and the potential for some financial tension, this is already separating as you move into the new month, with the resources to turn this into motivation. It was at the end of November that a clash between Venus, the planet of money in your financial sector and the dwarf planet Eris, the warrior princess of the cosmos in your income sector peaked. With Eris in your income sector since 1926, every planet that moves through your financial sector each year will always clash and this is something that over the years you have come to recognise as a rallying call on both sides of the financial fence.
The difference this year is that it happened just as Venus was crossing the lunar nodes, which until they leave in January 2025 are policing a balance between money coming in and money going out. If there were any balance issues this would have come to a head late last month. However, with Venus not only leaving your financial sector on 5th December but ending all planetary activity on this side of the financial fence, it won't take much to turn this into motivation. Especially the motivation to make the most of the final days of Venus' mission to fuel your financial confidence, update your financial desires and expectations and turn those desires into reality.
It is after Venus leaves that the Moon's last visit to your financial sector for the year will bring a chance to tie up loose ends as it moves through from 7th December to 9th December. Meanwhile, on the other side of the financial fence, a host of new planetary activity on the career front is helping to not only fire up your motivation but with Eris in her last full month in retrograde motion in your income sector, fight to make the most of the doors still open to the past, second chances and untapped income potential. This will get a boost from having Mars, the warrior planet of the cosmos in your career sector and in harmony all month. The Moon's last visit to your income sector for the year will sharpen your nose for money and act as a trigger as it moves through from 20th December to 22nd December.
