To many, December is the most magical month of the year. Of course, the holidays have a little something to do with that. Between the idea of Santa, the decorating of the Christmas tree, the twinkling lights, and the mistletoe, December is full of beauty, joy, and giving. Oh, and let's not forget that the month of December is really just an excuse to play Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas." Honestly, that song should be played all year, though. On top of that, people just seem to be all-round happier during the holiday season.
Following Christmas, we move on to New Year’s Eve, which not only offers an amazing excuse to wear a sparkly dress and kiss a rando at midnight, but it also allows us to reset and reflect. The closing of a year can be a somber moment, but it can also be a moment of determination, ambition, and hope as you can look forward to the next year.
All that said, you may be wondering what December specifically has in store for you. Well, it’s looking just as bright as that Christmas tree! With December beginning in Sagittarius season, you’ll feel cheerful, humorous, and willing to let the past go. As December transitions into Capricorn season at the end of the month, you’ll find yourself more focused on family, tradition, and building a life.
