Horoscopes for December 17:

Astrologer Aria Gmitter of Your Tango, gives her love forecast, writing: “We need stability, but the path to love comes with trust…Mercury, the Sun, and Venus are all in Sagittarius so we are dealing with lots of wanderlust energy.” She adds: “There is so much love to go around on Thursday with the day’s astrology, and trust is emphasized. We are bombarded with fire sign energy which encourages pulling away and trying out new things.”

Astrologer Patrick Arundell writes: “Prudent Saturn moves into idealistic Aquarius for a stay of over two years which suggests that that the groupmind could be greatly emphasized. Certain strands of thought could dominate our horizons unless we understand the nature of the thinking and its true place in our lives.”

Astrologer Nadia Gilchrist of Ruby Slipper Astrology explores the implications of Saturn’s Transit of Aquarius. Gilchrist writes: “Saturn enters Aquarius on December 17th at 12:04 am EST. Saturn previously dipped into this sign on March 21st, backing into Capricorn (due to its Rx) on July 1st. So what happens now will reactivate issues from that time.” Gilchrist explains: “Whatever began in March will now progress fully. March 21st was a taste of things to come – new rules/commitments, a new social order, a new focus. As a society, we will pick up where we left off (I’m referring to the pandemic and other current issues).”
