Daily forecasts for December 2013 written by
Rob Tillett. Click here for Moonbeam's Month in Brief.
Sat Dec 1: Highly Stressed
It's a highly stressed day for Virgo, but at least the Moon in friendly Cancer is on your side! Children as well as romantic attachments are centers of intense interest and concern. Avoid a destructive tendency to manipulate and control, or to view them only as extensions of your own influence and identity. The positive approach to these relationships is to form more powerful bonds. Fortunate
colors are chrysoprase and yellow sapphire. Lucky numbers are 7 and 9.
Sun Dec 2: Slow Down
You may have plenty of energy early in the day, but by nightfall you're ready to slow down. Don't push yourself tonight when the Moon enters your twelfth house of secrets and seclusion. Enjoy quiet times with your loved ones, indulging in simple pleasures. Be sure to get plenty of sleep to help ward off any viruses you may be exposed to now. Propitious colors are midnight blue and sunset
pink. Lucky numbers are 3 and 12.
Mon Dec 3: Introspection
It may be the the holiday season, but most of you are feeling more introspective than sociable now. You should remain backstage for today's activities; let someone else be the star of the show. Let your senses soak everything in today... allow sights, smells and sounds make an impression on you. Later, enjoy some quiet time by yourself. Fortunate colors are lavender and silver. Lucky numbers
are 21 and 30.
Tue Dec 4: Quiet Time
Recharge your spiritual batteries while the Moon remains in your twelfth house of endings. It's time to slow down, so consider staying home tonight. Allow yourself some quiet time. Dreams you have this evening could be revealing, but don't let night visions frighten you! The images that you see in your sleep can help you understand your waking worries. Beneficial colors are pale violet and
dark tan. Lucky numbers are 12 and 22.
Wed Dec 5: Leadership
The Moon lends you extra emotional strength today, helping you to clear up end-of-year obligations. You'll be in your element, organizing and analyzing the last tasks of 2012. People will be looking to you for leadership now. You should be up to the challenge and enjoying the spotlight. Relationship matters go well as you express yourself more freely. Move forward! Positive colors are brick
red and cream. Lucky numbers are 19 and 28.
Thu Dec 6: Live Wires
Some tension is possible as you deal with visitors from afar and spending time with in-laws may be taxing today. There's no way you can please everyone all the time, so stop trying! You are better off being honest rather than resenting others, so make a stand and draw the necessary lines. You will be respected for standing up for yourself... this is not the time to be a martyr! Favorable
colors are golden amber and ocean blue. Lucky numbers are 23 and 41.
Fri Dec 7: Comforting Moon
The comforting Moon continues to pass through your sign, giving you added energy. Lend your support to others as you navigate the day; your caring, nurturing side will be appreciated. Later this evening, count your blessings as the Moon enters Libra and your second house of personal finances. Don't be afraid to share what you have with others... it really is in giving that we receive.
Fortunate colors are rich red and cream. Lucky numbers are 19 and 28.
Sat Dec 8: Beauty Abounds
You'll want to be surrounded with beauty as the sensitive Moon transits your second house of personal finances. Buying something special for yourself is good medicine, so crack open your piggy bank and allow yourself a treat. Giving to others is also rewarding today. Don't forget to donate used or new toys to charitable organizations this holiday season. Favorable colors are sage green and
desert sand. Lucky numbers are 2 and 11.
Sun Dec 9: Dignity And Grace
The influence of the adventurous Sun and the tender Moon combine to bring you comfort and joy today and some may even find a bonus in their paychecks. Even if you haven't got a lot of material possessions, you should feel pride in what you have and the life you live. Dignity and grace are things that everyone deserves; you have enough to share with others. Fortunate colors are army green and
terra cotta. Lucky numbers are 20 and 24.
Mon Dec 10: Express Your Feelings
The Moon enters your third house of communication, urging you to express your feelings. Most of you have been thinking quite a bit lately, as cerebral Mercury moves into your sensitive fourth house tomorrow; now is the time to put your thoughts into words. If nervous tension has been building, it is imperative to work off steam. Go for a brisk walk in the fresh air this evening. Expressive
colors are emerald green and tangerine. Lucky numbers are 3 and 14.
Tue Dec 11: Personal Environment
Mercury, your life-ruler, swings into your fourth house, urging you to tend to your personal environment. Bring home fresh flowers to brighten your kitchen, and light fragrant candles in your bedroom. Making your home a haven is the best way to utilize your private space. Real estate transactions, repairs to your home or property, family discussions or business transactions, and
correspondence with or short trips to visit relatives are likely in weeks ahead. Fortunate colors are pale green and oyster. Lucky numbers are 2 and 4.
Wed Dec 12: About to Blossom
Virgos never have to be alone - unless of course you want to be. A partnership is about to blossom, but your degree of success is closely tied to your self-image. It's time to put your best talents forward, even the hidden ones, beautiful Virgo! Fortunate colors are sage green and desert sand. Lucky numbers are 2 and 20.
Thu Dec 13: New Moon
Changes in your home life may be underway as the New Moon activates Mercury in your fourth house of home and family. Harness this energy to make changes for the good. If you don't take a pro-active role, life is likely to enforce changes upon you. Don't let life happen to you -- make your life happen, and make it the best life it can be! Positive colors are aqua and blush. Lucky numbers are 4
Fri Dec 14: Charming And Convincing
You may wake to find that a wish is not only possible, but very likely. The Capricorn Moon enables you to mold reality into a convenient shape. This is a good time to assume leadership (if you haven't already!). Virgoans are particularly charming and can convince those around them that they are right - particularly co-workers. However, this doesn't give you the right to take advantage of
people, and you need to watch this character trait. Stick to the truth at all times. Favorable colors are terracotta and emerald green. Lucky numbers are 11 and 24.
Sat Dec 15: Self Sufficient
This is your lucky day! It took you a long time to figure it out, but now that all the details are in place you have the ability to turn straw into gold. If your co-workers haven't already nominated you for an award, maybe they should consider it! Good advice is there if you need it, but you're not obliged to take it. You love to think for yourself, which is how you got this far in the first
place, isn't it? Beneficial colors are pale yellow and sky blue. Lucky numbers are 5 and 14.
Sun Dec 16: High Hopes
You may have had high hopes for a new project or relationship but when you take a closer look, it doesn't pan out. As the Moon rolls through detached Aquarius, commitments could result in disappointment. Feel free to take a trip, either physically or mentally, as long as you leave your expectations behind. You love order and harmony, your strength lies in acceptance of random things. Even you
cannot dictate to the Universe!Entertaining at home and encouraging social gatherings within your family will be high on your list of priorities. Advantageous colors are golden amber and sapphire blue. Lucky numbers are 23 and 41.
Mon Dec 17: Life Lesson
There may be obstacles in your way and you might be worried or unclear about what's going to happen next: you just have to accept whatever comes your way. You can't control every situation, and this is a life lesson for you. Information is at your fingertips today and could prove to be very important. Even if it appears to be a bad day, if you've learnt just one thing, it's a good, productive
day! Auspicious colors are pale green and oyster. Lucky numbers are 32 and 38.
Tue Dec 18: Mind Over Matter
You look amazing, but you know that anyway. However, your brain and not your butt is your sexiest feature right now, especially when someone gets you talking. The Moon moves into your seventh house which inspires you to start new things, but you probably won't see them through. There's too much going on in your life right now. Commit your goals, dreams and ideas to paper so that you don't
forget about them. They'll always be there waiting for you. Advantageous colors are pearl white and pale pink. Lucky numbers are 9 and 33.
Wed Dec 19: Tried And True
You've found a way to keep it together when everyone around you is falling apart. A Pisces Moon encourages you to retreat into your inner peace when all else is bedlam. Let others be distracted by glitz and glitter - that's not for you. You have so much potential and this can be put into action later in the day. Stick to the tried and true - it's worked for you so many times. Fortunate colors
are lavender and pale gold. Lucky numbers are 27 and 42.
Thu Dec 20: On Target
Not only are you sure you're right, you also have the evidence to back up your theory and anyone who challenges you over the next few days doesn't stand a chance. Try not to gloat too much over an easy victory, but it wasn't your doing... Your trust, support and reliability add momentum and energy to people and causes. If there was ever a time to accomplish your goals, this is definitely it!
Surround yourself with wise people that can help you in your quest. Advantageous colors are navy blue and pure white. Lucky numbers are 18 and 24.
Fri Dec 21: The Solstice
Love, laughter and entertainment are high on your agenda during the next four weeks, Virgo, as the Sun moves through Capricorn, your house of romance and creativity. It's a fantastic time to be your true self, without worrying that other people won't like you when you reveal who you truly are. One major benefit will be a freer expression of your creative talents, so don't be modest about
them. Creative colors are amethyst and carmine. Lucky numbers are 5 and 23.
Sat Dec 22: Lustrous
You're a lot closer to accomplishing your goals than you think. As the Moon moves into Taurus, a last-minute idea saves your hide, making you look like a genius. Don't be surprised if you're placed into a leadership role at one point or another during the day. Your friends and co-workers may elect you to be the ringleader because of your proven track record. Enjoy the glory before its
rightful owner returns to claim it! Beneficial colors are wine red and mink brown. Lucky numbers are 26 and 44.
Sun Dec 23: Rumor Mill
The rumor mill is especially active, and interesting tales are coming at you from all sides. Don't believe everything you hear: there are people who will start gossip to further their own aims and you don't want to help them unwittingly. Similarly, don't reveal too much of yourself to those who you don't know intimately -- keep your own counsel. Beneficial colors are mahogany and lilac. Lucky
numbers are 30 and 36.
Mon Dec 24: Christmas Eve
You've done your very best, but there are things that are just outside your control. It's not easy, but try to set aside your worries for Christmas. It's important to show your brighter side to those who need cheering up. Creative budgeting will allow you to have a good time this evening at the last minute shopping rush. Beneficial colors are dusty blue and soft coral. Lucky numbers are 7 and
Tue Dec 25: Merry Christmas!
Hesitation is for those with time on their hands, not for people like you who have places to go and people to see. A Gemini Moon brings a different perspective to everyone's eyes. Keeping this in mind, remember that your map of the world may be quite different from someone else's. This can be the most beautiful day of the year, but also the most stressful. When the extended family gets
together it can be a pressure cooker, especially if you try to impose your opinions on them. Favorable colors are brick red and bronze. Lucky numbers are 25 and 34.
Wed Dec 26: Guts Galore
If you continue to be self-centered and introspective for much longer, others may start thinking of you as a one hit wonder. Wait until the eyes of the audience have been distracted, and then try out some new methods. Broaden your mind in whatever way possible. At the very least, you should be proud of yourself for having the guts to go ahead with a show that has received less than positive
ratings. Fortunate colors are mahogany and russet. Lucky numbers are 28 and 37.
Thu Dec 27: Vive La Difference!
Different people have different needs, don't they? It's important to keep in mind who you're dealing with. Brisk, impersonal transactions are useless when a loved one is involved. Some of you may be eager to move forward, but the Universe demands a heavy toll these days. Understanding your limitations makes it a lot easier. Use your skills to do whatever you can and leave the rest to fate.
Favorable colors are white and sapphire blue. Lucky numbers are 3 and 8.
Fri Dec 28: Full Moon
You might be tempted to go into a slump, but you should get a lift from the Cancer Full Moon. There's a lot to do, but plenty of time in which to do it. After all, it's the Holiday Season. No matter what kind of situation you find yourself in, try to keep an open mind. By seeing both sides of the argument, you'll be able to anticipate the next step. Beneficial colors are tan and maroon. Lucky
numbers are 5 and 11.
Sat Dec 29: Proud Peacock
Right now you resemble a colorful strutting peacock, an elegant ship with giant wind-filled sails. You're completely sure of yourself today and there's nothing wrong with that. A Cancer Moon gives you many reasons to be proud of yourself, but that doesn't give you the right to be egotistical! A compliment from the heart is worth a lot, especially when it's given, rather than received. Lucky
colors are olive green and aubergine. Lucky numbers are 30 and 31.
Sun Dec 30: Conserve Your Energy
It's best to keep this day low key as the sensitive Moon and sharp-tongued Mercury are out of joint. You may suffer indigestion from emotional upsets, so watch what you eat and when you eat it. If you can, get plenty of rest today. A potent situation is in the wind, but as you are still in your lunar low cycle, do not attempt to start anything new. Conserve your energy for New Year's Eve.
Beneficial colors are emerald green and antique silver. Lucky numbers are 3 and 21.
Mon Dec 31: New Year's Eve
You are entering a mysterious stage, thanks to the Moon in Leo. You may not mean every word you say, but your audience doesn't have to know this. Remember your human heritage, even as the stars rattle the cage of your animal instincts. Pick over the bones of the year and see if you could have done things differently. Virgo is communicative, orderly and intellectual but you can be
hyper-critical. Make a resolution to be more tolerant and even though you love detail, try to see the bigger picture in future. Give thanks for the many blessings that you have. Have fun tonight! Auspicious colors are basic black and heather grey. Lucky numbers are 20 and 44.
