December Horoscopes

Please note: While a thirteenth sign, Ophiuchus, was rumored to be “discovered” by NASA (this statement has since been proven incorrect), most newspapers do not include it in their horoscopes. In order to uphold the respectability of the King’s Page and our Royals, we shall not include this additional zodiac sign in our paper. Only the standard twelve will be included in our horoscopes below.

Sagittarius (November 23–December 21): Does December 14th ring a bell for you, Sagittarius? Well, this year it will. That day marks a solar eclipse for your sign. Do not be surprised if everything is topsy turvy and disorganized afterwards, as it is quite common to experience huge adjustments in your life following eclipses. Romance, career, academia, style—whatever sectors of your life the eclipse affects, you certainly will not be disappointed. Towards the end of the month, take some quality time to bond with your family and learn something new.

Capricorn (December 22–January 20): The middle of the month will prove to be a critical time to recharge your batteries, Capricorn—although the eclipse on the 14th may keep you up at night. Pay attention to your wallet a few days afterward. You will need to put a limit on your spending in order to be prepared for a potential shortage of cash in the near future. By the time Christmas rolls around, it will be party time for you. And, on December 27th, you may just feel flirtatious enough to find someone who will give you that New Year’s Eve kiss! Lucky you!

Aquarius (January 21–February 19): Aquarius, brace yourself. Your closest friends could become blips on your radar this month, and your newest acquaintances could very well replace them. After all, that is what the eclipse is for: shaking things up. Be sure to stay calm on December 23, as you may get into a fight with a partner, and if you are not careful, this disagreement could be what ends your relationship for good. December 29 will be a key time for you to take a few things off your plate, as you are a sign that tends to be overbooked 24/7.

Pisces (February 20–March 20): Introspection is the name of the game for you, Pisces, this December, especially from the 17th through the 19th. With your priorities newly reevaluated, now is the perfect time to start drafting your New Year’s Resolutions. The 29th of this month will find you pouring your heart or your creative juices out, one way or another. Speaking of matters of the heart, you will catch some serious feelings for someone you have known for a long time on the 30th. It will not hurt you, though, to let yourself get carried away for once.

Aries (March 21–April 20): You have kept your nose to the grindstone all year, Aries. This month, you will be richly rewarded. If you are thinking about the next chapter in that wild voyage also known as your life, everything you would like to accomplish during that time (and for that matter, how to accomplish it) will become clear on December 19th. In preparation for 2021, you will be extra motivated to tidy up your shared spaces and make room for recently received holiday gifts on December 30th. Take full advantage of this rare moment!

Taurus (April 21–May 20): Have a long-standing grudge against you, Taurus? Owe anyone money? All that will clear itself up miraculously during the December 14 eclipse. Shortly afterwards, you will be presented with truly incredible opportunities. However, they do not come without strings attached, so you must be willing to take on necessary responsibilities that are coupled with those opportunities. Towards the end of the month, you might be getting many texts from your close friends; make sure you have the mental space for them.

Gemini (May 21–June 21): Post-eclipse wholesomeness will grace your life by December 15th, Gemini! You may find yourself getting extra hugs from your loved ones, and maybe even an extra holiday gift, just because they love you so much. The 19th will have you feeling smart, and eager to spread newfound knowledge to others, too. The end of this month may bring a bit of anxiety, as you will be wondering how other people perceive you and whether their perceptions are unfavorable. Do not stress too much—you are doing your best.

Cancer (June 22–July 22): With the eclipse may come a new furry, scaly, or feathered friend in your life. How exciting! You will also be considering revamping your entire fashion sense—if you tend to shy away from bright colors, you might find yourself reaching for that sunshine-yellow shirt. Or, if it is all Technicolor, all the time, perhaps neutrals will be more your thing starting in the middle of the month. You are maturing and learning new things about yourself every day, and before 2021, you will blossom into your (current) best self.

Leo (July 23–August 23): It is okay not to love every activity you are involved in. In addition to that, Leo, it is also completely fine to give up the activities you do not love in order to make room for relaxation. This is a lesson you are wholeheartedly embracing this December. Around the 19th, you will learn how to get the best possible outcome out of compromises, without hurting the other party. You might get this insight from a more experienced classmate or coworker, or perhaps even from a parent or grandparent—they would know a thing or two.

Virgo (August 24–September 23): Though you have likely been spending a lot of time at home this year, Virgo, December 14, 2020 will challenge you to look at it in new ways. You might also find you have a famous relative this month (perhaps you are Prince Harry’s fourteenth cousin thrice removed?). The end of December provides a window of opportunity to either lean on your current friends, or, if they refuse to be supportive and loving, find new ones to depend upon. Nothing is worse than betrayal to you, and you could find that out the hard way.

Libra (September 24–October 23): Great Expectations might as well have your name on it, Libra, because that is the theme of the month for you, starting on 12/14. If anything in your life does not meet your expectations, do yourself a favor and ditch it this December. You may be feeling a lack of energy by December 29, but be sure to stay alert. Your academic and career life is heating up and you do not want to miss reaping the profit of your countless, dedicated hours of work this year. It would be such a shame to waste this critical time.

Scorpio (October 24–November 22): Dollars and sense are weighing heavily on your mind this month, and you might be quite overwhelmed with how to balance the two. Luckily, once the eclipse has passed, you will be able to figure out how to be content and live comfortably within any financial situation or budget. Communication, especially in the digital world, will be a secondary, yet also significant December focus for you. 2021 looks like it will be a fresh start for all aspects of your life, so be sure to prioritize what really matters to you now.
