Winter is here (almost officially) and that means its Sagittarius season! With December now in full swing that also means a new moon cycle has come to ruin all of our lives, especially since mercury is still in retrograde. Give us a break already, right? As the moon joined the sun in Sagittarius on the 7th, it marked new beginnings and stimulated creative projects this month. It also marked the last lunar cycle of 2018. Seriously, where did the year go? That being said, now is the time to start that creative endeavor you’ve been putting off all month.

Sagittarius is a large-hearted, optimistic sign of curious travelers. This month, it’s time to start looking towards the future, making new plans, and really listening to your gut intuition. Be daring. Be bold. But, remember to be patient and kind, because you may have to cash in on that holiday karma before the year is done.

So, to help you and all your Sagittarius friends this December here are five books to appeal to your inner freedom loving, traveling, confident self.
