You might receive mixed signals from friends and associates today as you try to reestablish your lost authority. You just don't feel clear about what others are expecting of you, which may prompt you to run off and hide. But unfortunately, you can't. Talk about your predicament with someone you trust but don't make any sudden moves. Apply your common sense to the situation and keep plodding forward -- even if you aren't sure of your destination yet.

Accentuate the positive
An uplifting Sagittarius New Moon kicks off the month on December 2, inspiring you to set your goals higher while giving you the confidence you need to reach them. However, you won't be able to get away with false bravado because this New Moon occurs in your 8th House of Deep Sharing, sending you on an intense journey of self-discovery.
Your sense of fairness wins out when assertive Mars enters objective Libra and your 6th House of Work on December 7. Being able to recognize your personal needs allows you to set them aside in order to do your job well. Fortunately, opportunistic Jupiter's coordinated trine to ambitious Saturn on December 12 strengthens your resolve to make a realistic plan and execute it efficiently.
You may spend unwisely on indulgent gifts and holiday celebrations thanks to the scattered Gemini Full Moon on December 17 lighting up your 2nd House of Money. You desire more than you currently have, but are cautious about exceeding reasonable limits with resourceful Venus in practical Capricorn camped out in your 9th House of Faraway Places. Although there's a lot of planetary activity throughout the month, you may feel sluggish or as if it's difficult to achieve satisfaction because your ruling planet, Venus, slows down to begin her 41-day retrograde cycle on December 21.
This is also the Winter Solstice, another sign that it's time to retreat and journey inward. However, a shocking Mars-Uranus opposition on December 25 and a fierce Mars-Pluto square on December 30 indicate that you will end this year with a thrilling roller-coaster ride rather than a long and dreamy winter's sleep.
Be on your toes
Two key issues this month involve cooperation with colleagues and developing new skills. In fact, these will continue to be major career concerns through the first half of 2014. The source of this pattern is active Mars' entrance into gracious Libra on December 7. This transit occurs in your 6th House of Employment and will stay in this part of your chart until next summer.
Striking a balance
The good news for you this month is that the love planet Venus is in Capricorn, an Earth sign compatible with yours. Her transit in your 9th House of Higher Learning and Faraway Places is good for connecting with people from other cultures and in educational settings. Venus will remain in responsible Capricorn until March 5, 2014, which sounds helpful when you're serious and committed to working on relationships and are dealing with a mature person.
