Today's Horoscope This week This month
Taurus horoscope for December 2023
Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of December in your financial sector, the solar spotlight is always on your financial situation and money matters at this time of year. However, this year the Sun not only has some impressive company but thanks to Mercury's return earlier last month you have had a head start. Mercury will leave on 2nd December but not before giving you the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game and to think on your feet. The Sun will keep the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters until leaving on 22nd December but is having Mars and the dwarf planet Ceres here that is making all the difference.
Both returned within 48 hours of the Sun's return last month, Mars to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit for the first time in two years and Ceres to begin her first deep dive into your financial needs and priorities in four years. It is a retrograde turn on 13th December that will see Mercury retrograde back in 10 days later, a day after the Sun leaves. Not turning direct until early next month, Mercury will spend the rest of the year going back over old ground while Venus will return on 30th December, where she will end this year and start 2024. Until then, while Venus will start the month in your work sector, she will spend the majority of the month focused on your relationships.
When Venus leaves your work sector on 5th December, she will end all planetary activity on the job front for the year, though not before giving you everything needed to bring this professional year home while hopefully taking a break over the holiday period before major new developments on the career front next month. Venus will spend from 5th December to 30th December in your relationship sector and apart from the Moon's return from 9th December to 11th December, she will be on her own. However, after a parade of planets has moved through over recent months, she will work to make this a special month for all your relationships. Meanwhile, as is always the case the Sun will spend the last 10 days and the first three weeks of every year in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery, though after 15 years for the last time while Pluto, the planet of change and revolution is here.
Love & RomanceAs you move into the new month it has been just over a week since the Sun left your relationship sector, seven days since Mars and six since the dwarf planet Ceres left. This is something that should have left your relationship sector empty for the year and last year did. However, this year the relationship gods are saving the best until last. Your relationship sector will have been empty for 10 days by the time that Venus, the planet of love returns for what will be a standalone visit, one that distances her from the battlefield of recent months while at the same time benefiting from this.
It is a given that since Uranus' return to Taurus in 2019 no planet has been able to move through your relationship sector without clashing, but this year you have Jupiter there as well. At the same time, with Mars having made his first visit to your relationship sector two and the dwarf planet her first in four years, you also had more planets in your relationship sector. This meant more clashes and multiple times when this has put a balance between your personal and relationship needs to the test over recent months. However, this has left you with a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you that Venus is able to exploit.
Venus is here until 30th December and while she will clash with Jupiter and Uranus, this is spaced out and as it is only her, this is more a reminder while as the planet of love, she will use this to better target her influence. The Moon will move through your relationship sector from 9th December to 11th December, giving you a chance to check in and become more emotionally engaged during Venus' early days. Equally important is the Moon's return to your communication sector on 27th December as a Full Moon, with a chance to ensure the communication lines are open during Venus' final days. Meanwhile, the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment will quietly keep the spirit of romance alive, with a little help from the Moon when it moves through your romantic sector from 4th December to 7th December.
Business & CareerThe gap between the end of all planetary activity on the job front for 2023 and the start of a major new wave of planetary activity on the career front in 2024 is incredibly short compared to most years, giving you a chance to end this year and approach the next with confidence. As we move into the new month Venus is still in your work sector, but due to leave on 5th December a period of near continuous planetary activity that began back in June is coming to an end. This included Mars, with the warrior planet of the cosmos having made his first visit in two years and the dwarf planet Ceres, who started it all off with her last deep dive into your needs and priorities on the job front in four years.
Venus was the last planet to reach your work sector and the last to leave and as the planet of money, desire and attraction, she is able to exploit what has already been invested while setting things on a course where you can continue to exploit the momentum gained. Venus' departure on 5th December will leave your work sector empty, but the Moon's return from 7th December to 9th December will bring a chance to tie up loose ends while acting as a trigger for anything that is yet to fully play out. This brings to a close all the planetary activity in your two professional houses this year, but by the time the Moon returns to your career sector from 16th December to 18th December, there will be a chance to start looking to the future.
On the one hand, this last visit for the year is a chance to sharpen your professional instincts and ensure you are emotionally and intuitively engaged as this professional year draws to a close. On the other hand, with the Sun and Pluto returning to your career sector next month and a massive amount of resources in the early months of next year to get what will be a 20 year visit by the planet of change and revolution, this is also a chance to start looking to the future. However, by this point in the month, there will be little urgency, with the real urgency this month on the job front and especially during Venus' final days in your work sector before leaving on 5th December.
MoneyBecause the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of December in your financial sector, the solar spotlight is always on your financial situation and money matters at this time of year. This year you have a combination of a head start, a delay and additional resources that you don't usually have, making this more than just the chance that you get at this time each year to get on top of money matters. The head start is thanks to Mercury's early return last month, something that has already had and will continue to have implications. Mercury returned 17 days ahead of the Sun, giving you time to use his smart head for money in order to get your head in the game and to think on your feet.
Mercury's early return is still having implications and will continue to well into the New Year, all because of just how early he returned. That early return is already causing Mercury to slow down and while he will leave on 2nd December, a retrograde turn will see him return to your financial sector a day after the Sun leaves on 22nd December. In retrograde motion for the rest of the year, this will give you a chance to return to the drawing board. Meanwhile, held back is Venus, with the planet of money's own retrograde phase earlier in the year meaning that she is late to arrive and won't return until 30th December.
The year will be all but over by then, but her mission to fuel your financial confidence, update your financial desires and expectations and work to turn those desires into reality will just be getting started as you move into 2024. While the Sun, Mercury and Venus will all spend some time in your financial sector but not the whole month, those extra resources that are here all month returned with the Sun last month. This includes Mars, who for the first time in two years has returned to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit and the dwarf planet Ceres, who is taking you on your first deep dive into your financial needs and priorities in four years.
