Wow, it’s almost the end of 2016. How did that happen? We round out the end of a very powerful and productive year with a focus on balance, wrapping up the business of 2016 coupled with as many chill vibes as we can muster. We find ourselves with the sun in Sagittarius—a vivacious energy that is concerned with fascinating endeavors and adventure. While keeping with the energy of winter (and the fourth house of Cancer), we are also asked to go slow, meditate, and relax so we maintain our health going into 2017. Sagittarius is the sign of the philosopher and teacher, or rather one who is concerned with the truth. If you’ve been feeling exhausted by the truth of world events lately, turn off the news for a bit and take a walk in nature or spend time with people you love at home. I wish you a remarkable end of 2016!
Please read on to see what the cosmos has to say for your unique sign this month!
Hi, Aries! You round out the end of a very powerful year with a focus on long-distance travel or mind-expanding activities. Booking tickets or planning a vacation are a great way to capitalize on the energy available to you this month. If you don’t have any travel plans or would like to stay cozy where you are, make sure to do something this month that opens your mind in some way or gets you out of your comfort zone. Perhaps a new workout or yoga class, or try learning a new language. Have an incredible end of 2016, Aries!
Hi, Taurus! To end the year, you focus on career productivity and your reputation. How can you shine this month and really put the pedal to the metal when it comes to thriving within your work sphere? A promotion could be in the works, or you get some remarkable news about something you’ve been working hard for all year. Either way, stay productive and inspired this month, Taurus.
Hi, Gemini! To end 2016, you focus on inspiration, vision, and close friendships. Being sociable this month definitely gets you into the energy of the holidays and could bring about some amazing opportunities. If you’ve never created a vision board, I suggest you create one this month to get you inspired and focused on all that can manifest for you next year. (Not sure what a vision board is? Google “How to make a vision board,” or check out www.sarahsprout.com on the art of manifesting.)
Hi, Cancer! You round out the end of 2016 with a bit of mellow vibes. Meditation, getting plenty of z’s, and introspection are all up for you this month. You’ve had an incredibly busy year, and December asks you to slow your pace ever so slightly to reflect on all the experiences you’ve cultivated this year. How often do any of us slow down and take inventory on what we have created in a day, week, or year? Capitalize on the chill energy available to you this month, Cancer, and get inspired for 2017! Your body and soul will thank you.
Hi, Leo! This month we focus on a reinvention of your look or a rejuvenation of your self-expression. If it feels like time to clean out your closet to make room for the new, do it! A new hairstyle or color could also be in order as well. You could feel a bit renewed this month around certain parts of your life that have felt heavy or overwhelming. Show up, be your amazing self, and bring your good vibes to whatever holiday parties you decide to grace this month.
Hi, Virgo! You end the year with a money transit: a focus on finances and building your Virgoan empire. How can you end the year feeling stable, secure, and productive? Is there anything new for you to learn when it comes to making more money or managing your finances? You may feel inspired this month to stick to what makes you feel secure and productive rather than taking massive risks. Get your financial affairs in order this month, and move yourself into 2017 in an empowering and purposeful manner. You’re a Virgo, so this will be easy for you!
Hi, Libra! You finish out 2016 with expanded energy and good vibes. You may feel extra sociable this month, with an emphasis on investing in close friendships and getting yourself out into the world. This is also an excellent month for you to speak your mind and express yourself to those around you; go into the new year feeling refreshed and light. If you’re feeling adventurous, take a short-distance trip with a friend or partner in crime. Enjoy yourself, Libra, this is a very light-hearted time of year for you!
Hi, Scorpio! You finish out the year with a focus on your home sector. How can you get yourself cozied up and into the energy of wintertime? Updating your home décor, improving your bed, or even just buying a new plant for your space are all great ways to celebrate the energies available to you this month. Feeling grounded and rested is the best way for you to finish up 2016, dear Scorpio! Enjoy!
Happy birthday, Sagittarius! This month you celebrate the lighter sides of life. What can you do this month to enjoy yourself and have a good time? I know this year has been quite full on for you and everyone else, so make sure to take enjoyment in romance, love, creativity, and celebration. If needed, spend time with children if you’ve forgotten how to keep it fun and light! Enjoy yourself and have fun, Sagittarius.
Hi, Capricorn! To end 2016 productively, I ask that you make sure to balance your work schedule with your health and vitality this month. I know life gets incredibly busy and it can be hard to take care of ourselves when our schedules demand so much, but I know if you can take some time this month to give back to yourself, life will reward you! Early morning yoga, Pilates, or movement of any kind can really rejuvenate your mind and productivity when it comes to work. Take care of yourself, Capricorn!
Hi, Aquarius! This month you focus on partnerships and relationships of all kinds. How can you make yourself available to the people in your life this month? Which relationships could use a little extra love and energy? You may feel more inspired this month to work in partnership with someone else versus on your own. This could also be a great time to reflect; if you’ve had something on your mind this year, don’t take it into 2017 with you. Communicate perspectives and get it off your chest if the relationship means something to you. This will feel rejuvenating!
Hi, Pisces! You finish out 2016 on a bit of an introspective note, which is in keeping with the energy of winter. To end the year, this is also an excellent time for you to release any habits and stuff from your life that don’t make you the best you can be. You’ll want to take into 2017 whatever feels most empowering and positive. Meditation and getting lots of rest are also highlighted for you this month, Pisces. Enjoy the last month of the year, you are wonderful!
