This is your kind of month, Leo – so at least 2016, as hard as it was at times, should go out on a note you'll adore. The first three weeks of December bring your kind of fire (with a side order of romance and creativity) buoyed by the late November New Moon. A thrill-a-minute Full Moon arrives on the 13th, throwing the doors of your social life wide open. Friends, colleagues and online followers all play a role in helping you achieve your goals now. In fact, think back to an idea you first had about six months ago – it might be coming to fruition right now – in the form of a hot new collab. Note that there's a shorter window for development with this particular Full Moon, because Mercury goes retrograde less than a week later – on the 19th. It's important to finish up any detail-oriented work and finalize your holiday travel plan as far in advance of the retrograde as possible. Two days later the stars bring you their official day of rest: the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. Take time now to slow down and catch up with your soul, because right after Christmas the energy quickens again. The final New Moon of the year arrives on the 29th – the same day that Uranus goes direct in your house of adventure. Your New Year's Eve plans are bound to be extremely sexy – and full of surprises. Dress accordingly.

Coziness is your calling this month, Leo. With the Sun in your house of home, family and nostalgia until the 21st, you're in the mood to hunker down and attend to your nest. This can be as deep as processing old wounds with loved ones, or as superficial as shopping for a set of pretty new dishware or linens – or both. The Full Moon arrives on the 14th, and during the weekend before, you might feel a bit obsessive about your career and professional status. Something you started thinking about or working on about six months ago is on your mind again now. You can push it forward or put the finishing touches on an important project – one that can help you rise to the top of your field. During the final week of November, life gets suddenly and stunningly romantic. The Sun moves into Sagittarius, lighting up your house of love, creativity and pleasure for the next four weeks. This awesome vibe reaches its apex with the New Moon on the 29th – make your happiness wish-list now, and with a bit of practical follow-up, you'll see results within six months.
