Raise your hand if you ate, drank and definitely got merry this past holiday weekend?
While I would have loved to be home with family, I spent this holiday in New York with close friends. A rather eclectic group of 16 people from all across the globe in a Nolita loft with more food and booze than you could image? Yup, it was as much fun as you could imagine. To be honest, I had this moment at the table where I looked around at all of us, stuffed and a little rowdy at 1am, and realized how lucky I was to be here, in NYC, with these people. I guess that’s the point of the holiday, right? To practice gratitude for the big and little things in your life.
Coming off a holiday high, I am much too excited about December. It doesn’t hurt that it’s my birthday month (oh hey archers!!) but it really is the best time of the year. New York is all lit up, all fancified, and she does look pretty dashing all dressed up, right? Plus, throw in the holiday soirees and time with loved ones. I mean, you can’t go wrong. After a very busy fall, I’m so ready to kick up my heels with friends, enjoy a few winter cocktails, and, most of all, head back to California.
So, in the spirit of the holidays, let’s all make a pact: We solemnly swear that we will be up to no good this December. (And yes, I did just steal that from a Harry Potter novel. A certain someone may have binged on the movies while baking pies for Thanksgiving.)
Also, because this is my birthday month (LOOK WHO’S TURNING 22 AGAIN!), I felt it only right to share a few snippets from Ms. Miller’s horoscope for December. Because, it’s a good one and I’m ready. And because she’s done just a freaking amazing job these past two months. It’s almost terrifying.
This is your birthday month, and the start of December will be full of cheer. The new moon in Sagittarius, December 2, will get the party started. Over the coming two weeks, you will have a chance to put in motion a new venture or relationship (or both) that is important to you.
This will be the only new moon of the year that will fall in Sagittarius, so this will be very helpful for you. It will have the power to boost the actions you take in the two weeks that follow that date, so choose something important to launch – the seeds you plant then will affect your life positively for an entire year to come. You need not complete your goal, but start to simply seed your plans at the earliest possible date after December 2. After this new moon appears, its strength deflates with each passing day – act quickly after December 2.
If you hope to give your career a big push forward, you will still have the assistance of Mars, now in Virgo in your fame and honors sector, from December 1 to 6. This is a holdover from last month, and half of the month before that (October 15) when you first hosted Mars in Virgo and began this trend. Once Mars leaves, however, he will not be back to give professional efforts a big boost until September 2015. Make that first week of December count for you.
Once Mars enters Libra on December 7, your orientation will change. You will have eight months of the red planet’s boost to your social life. This sounds good, but you may find that at times your social life will be so energized that you won’t have much time for anything else. You will need to balance this new trend with demands of work and family, of course.
Ok, let’s do the damn thing.
