December Horoscopes

This Series is brought to you by Skydiamond. Made From The Sky To Protect The Earth.

Welcome to The SBT Astrology Club. A new horoscope series where each month we seek guidance from the stars on how to live in line with our values and protect our planet. Read below for December's Edition written by our resident Astrologist Sade, aka The Astrology Vixen.

December's Intentions ✨

‘Tis the season of dreamy acts of kindness and a wicked sense of humour - you guessed it, it’s officially Sagittarius season! The month starts off with a powerful Full Moon in Gemini on December 7th. Your mind may be unusually activated during this time, and you may receive new sparks of insights that can inspire you to take your creative ideas to the next level. Do your best to curb impulsive decisions as you may regret making a hasty choice. On December 9th, it’s time to raise your standards, as Venus moves into Capricorn. We welcome Jupiter in Aries for the second time this year on December 20th. Think big, bold and bountiful. If you’ve been playing small, this is a push to take control over your own destiny. 

As we move from Autumn to Winter on December 21st, the Winter solstice asks us to reflect on all the juicy lessons we’ve embarked on this year. This season offers us a chance to prioritise our wellbeing and restore from previous cycles of inner growth. You can gain extraordinary wisdom on your unconscious behaviours which will help you to tap into your own power to change the course of your direction. On the same day, we usher in the Capricorn clan to hold the collective torch. The money makers of the zodiac family, can teach us a thing or two on how to build sturdy foundations. Get ritual ready, as a New Moon in Capricorn graces the sky on December 23rd. This New Moon is an incredible time to think about how your actions are contributing to your legacy and purpose. The communication hotlines are in for a new ios update, because the Mercury in Capricorn retrograde is in town on December 29th. You may reflect on what it truly means to build a purpose led life. 

Aries 🪐

Unpack the booby traps in your mind, as they may be polluting your outlook on how to achieve your climate positive goals. When you’re able to look at what isn’t working head on, you’ll soon see it was a faulty rear view mirror that distorted your view. With a little recalibration you can show others how to walk the walk in your ecological footprint boots. 

Journal question: What were my greatest climate positive lessons this year?

 

Taurus 🪐

Your belief system is in for a regenerative treat. What you believe influences what you think you can achieve. This is a time to embody the knowledge you’ve learnt from from the pile of eco-conscious books on your shelf. Thinking critically, is the pathway to see beyond climate grief. 

Journal question: What climate ethics have I learned from a book that I’ve put into practice?

 

Gemini 🪐

Commitment, tenacity, and persistence are your three genie wishes this month. Impulse won’t get you far this time. Slow your roll, and move at a snail’s pace to expand your horizons. Your eco-conscious ideas may not only benefit the community, but it can be a formula you can sell to the bigger corps who care.   

Journal question: How can I strategise eco-conscious goals more efficiently?



Cancer 🪐

The right connections and partnerships can help you break through glass ceilings which can catapult you into a climate positive future. Riddle your timeline with a few #relationshipgoals captions and pay homage to your cosmic team. Home grown organic connections can last a life time, as you all build towards a better tomorrow.

Journal question: How can I create more time to connect with fellow eco-conscious members across different industries?

 

Leo 🪐

Invest in yourself in every way possible this month. Get yourself prepped and ready for world domination in the new year. Book that eco-conscious course. Go to the world climate conference and spread the word. 

Journal question: When was the last time you invested in eco-conscious education?


 

Virgo 🪐

You’re about to begin an entirely new creative era. For now, this month you need to let go of the ‘tried and tested’ and wipe the whiteboard clean. Trust your creative instincts, and move outside of the margins to innovate the eco-conscious landscape. 

Journal question: Who inspires me in the climate positive landscape?

 

Libra 🪐

If there were limitless possibilities at the other side of the fence, what would you choose? As the architect of your own world, decide what tools you need in your kit to design a fulfilling eco-conscious life (even if it takes a few Ikea trips) This is the season of dreamy acts of climate optimism and generosity. 

Journal question: What one small change could I make that may enhance my climate activism?

 

Scorpio 🪐

Go somewhere completely new this month, as you may meet a fellow eco-conscious tribe member in an unexpected place. Remember, you don’t always need to know the details to take a leap of faith. You are the writer of your story, however be open to adventurous plot twists along the way. 

Journal question: How can I bring together a collection of climate positive minds for game changing discussions?

 

Sagittarius 🪐

This month asks you to get nifty with your hands. You have a keen eye for what’s resourceful and those around you can learn your crafty ways. Before you sacrifice old nik naks to the recycling bin, think about how you can build a new world in your home. 

Journal question: How can I rethink disposable items into using them to make something valuable?

 

Capricorn 🪐

As you sit on the edge of retrograde season, look over your climate positive commitments to see if your heart is all the way in. If it’s time to rebrand, don’t hesitate to do what feels right. Life may move at 100 miles per hour this month, so take it slow and steady as it’ll take more than a Kiehl's midnight recovery oil to destress. 

Journal question: How can I take a pause before I commit myself to new tasks?

 

Aquarius 🪐

If there were no limits on your freedom, what would you choose? Our beliefs shape our reality, and this is an opportunity to see where you may be placing limits on your potential. You are in the driver's seat of your life. Think about your ultimate destination, and place a pin on the map.

Journal question: How can I liberate myself to think outside of the mainstream climate landscape?

Pisces 🪐

This month the spotlight shines down on your network. Don’t chase a viral moment, but you have the power to muster a storm on the cyber air waves. Create a Tik Tok eco-conscious challenge to connect with the virtual community. When all is said and done, give yourself some time away from groupthink, to tune into your own inner compass. 

Journal question: How can I use my voice online in an impactful way?
