Home and family issues are even more important this month than last. Your 4th house becomes ultra-powerful from the 21st onwards. Your 10th house by contrast is basically empty – only the Moon will move through there on the 5th and 6th.

For many people, the holiday season is a party period. You will have some of this – the ruler of your 5th house of fun receives nice aspects until the 21st. But for you celebrating with the family seems the ticket. I wouldn’t be surprised if you spend New Year’s Eve at home in a quiet kind of way – with the family. It’s not that you can’t go out; you just seem to want to be there.

Saturn’s move into the 4th house (where he will be for the next two years) shows a sense of duty – a sense of family responsibility. You show your love through taking on more responsibility. Family life can be a burden these days, but you can’t avoid it. Pick up the burden and handle it. This will bring much personal growth and unexpected help.

Saturn in the 4th house initiates a period where you need to manage the emotional life. There is a tendency to repress emotions under this aspect. But this never works – not for long anyway. Managing the feelings is not repression. One takes charge of them and directs them in the proper way – in constructive kinds of ways. Meditation is a big help here.

Finances are still excellent. Jupiter has been in the money house since October 11, and on the 9th Mars moves in and spends the rest of the month there too. This tends to show the active financial support of the spouse, partner or current love. It brings partnership and joint venture opportunities. Your friends are prospering and providing financial opportunity.

Mars in the money house indicates a change in your love preferences. Now material wealth is a romantic turn-on. Singles gravitate to the ‘good providers’. Love is shown in material ways – financially or through material gifts. This is how you feel loved, this is how you show it. For the past couple of months, with Mars in your own sign, love was romantic. The romantic niceties were important. But now (after the 9th) with Mars in Scorpio, it is the sexual magnetism that attracts.

Health is good until the 21st, but after that date you need to pay it a lot more attention. It’s not just the short-term planets (the Sun and Venus) that stress you out. Now Saturn will be making stressful aspects to you too, and this is a long-term trend. Tough choices have to be made in the coming years. You can’t do everything and please everyone. You will have to focus on what’s really important.
