You may be provoked to initiate action at work today by someone who goads you into stepping beyond your normal limits. Even if an outrageous plan sounds enticing, the very idea of doing anything so unconventional might make you feel anxious. Thankfully, you could receive support from the most unlikely sources now. Go ahead and spread your wings and fly; you'll never know how far you can get if you don't at least try.

Out like a Lion
This has been a year of personal opportunities and profound growth, and it fittingly ends as the momentum rises to a crescendo. Although you may try to contain yourself as challenging events begin to stack up throughout the month, you realize that you must manage your reactions to those closest to you. Process your frustration and transform negative emotions into constructive actions.
The inspirational Sagittarius New Moon on December 2 stirs your desire for adventure while your long-term planning is assisted by logical Mercury's move into farsighted Sagittarius on December 4. Still, you might become ambivalent about doing too much work through the holiday season when ardent Mars pushes its way into sociable Libra on December 7 to enhance your 4th House of Home and Family.
No matter how caught up you are in the hustle and bustle of the season, the diversity-seeking Gemini Full Moon on December 17 lights up your 12th House of Privacy, gently reminding you to save time for your own spiritual development. On December 21, the Sun's shift into traditional Capricorn and your 7th House of Companions marks the Winter Solstice, a time to settle into the safety of your most secure relationships. But anxiety over a past event or an old partnership can complicate alliances when loving Venus begins her retrograde cycle in your 7th house on the same day.
Unresolved domestic tension may heat up on December 25-31 as cranky Mars, conversational Mercury, and the willful Sun stress punishing Pluto and shocking Uranus. Tempers could flare unless you're willing to discuss your concerns in an objective manner without blaming anyone else for your unhappiness.
Have a thick shell
There are some strong temptations to take risks in your work life early this month. On December 2 the New Moon in adventurous Sagittarius lands in your 6th House of Employment, emboldening you to take on fresh challenges in your current line of work or providing inspiration to turn your career in a totally new direction. While expanding your vision of what you can do to make a living is a good idea, implementing it could be a lengthy process that requires plenty of patience and persistence.
In it for the long haul
Relationships are likely to be a front burner issue for you during the next few months. That's because the love planet Venus is in your 7th House of Partners until March 5, 2014. Normally, she waltzes through a sign in about four weeks, but her retrograde (backward) turn on December 21 will prolong her stay in this intimate part of your chart.
