Expectation on December 8th begins to rise, and the nature of those born at this time might be a bit intense or tricky in close relationships. They are energetic individuals ready to initiate and take practical steps towards a goal, but very often they aren’t tender enough with others to see that their spontaneity might cost them intimacy and joyful energies. Although it would be wise for them to take a step back before they start running anywhere, their spontaneous and grounded nature is their best quality and it shouldn’t be held down, but freely expressed. To find a fine line of balance is the real challenge here, acting on impulse, but holding on to awareness of the surroundings as well.

December 8th Horoscope

(Pluto) – MARS – SUN – MOON

It is important in such a strong planetary row to always remember who leads the way and who follows. People born on December 8th have enough respect and admiration for role models and those who teach them to follow, but need to find the point of clarity on their inner authority as well. In order to stay close and connected in their relationships no matter what happens around them, they are to build trust and a caring bond where there won’t be emotional blackmail to hold on to anyone involved. Loyalty should be turned to respect, and a pure desire to protect the most vulnerable, loving core of the bond should be found in each of their contacts.

In need of enough personal space and liberation of spirit, each Sagittarius born on this date needs to remember that their core of authentic personality is their priority and their only actual authority at any given moment. With enough respect for others, they must ask for respect in return, believing that everyone in their life has the power to embrace their responsibilities and resolve problems they’ve been dealt with by a much higher authority – the Universe itself.

Love and Emotions

Seeking things to smile at and relationships to smile in, those born on December 8th might be a bit rough around the edges until they fall in love. The importance of sexuality in their love life is grand, especially at a young age and before they learn that true listening comes from the heart and is the prerequisite for deep physical pleasure too. Sharing comes naturally to these individuals, but they could have a hard time finding a partner who understands their appetite for giving.

They want someone to train with, work with, and move with, and a soulmate who understands their need to risk while at the same time holding their feet on the ground. Rough and specific boundaries need to be established in each of their relationships, but their expression is to be tender and kind, although strict and direct. They enjoy company of those who are stable and move forwards with time, and won’t settle for a partner who doesn’t have much to crave for, move for, or desire in life.


The Moon as the guiding light of those born on the 8th of December is an interesting turning point of vulnerability and emotion they are meant to find. It is the call of their Soul, the touch of true intimacy, and stands for their need to connect on pure and joyous planes instead of holding on to shared pain. They are to build a family life, discover where their peace of mind and heart hides, and slowly transcend from love for one in a close physical bond, to love Divine.

What They Excel In

Sagittarius representatives born on December 8th excel in sports and active workplaces, dangerous adventures and moves that require a lot of energy. They are strong and practical enough, yet inspired by higher forces and intelligent. They strive in workplaces where authorities are respected in a certain way, in the army or in a long existing system that a team of holders has been running for decades. Their initiative makes them a great leader, but only when their reach such status with hard work and dedication to a higher goal.

December 8th Birthday Gift

Although sporting equipment and the set of kitchen knives might be a very good option for Sagittarius representatives born on December 8th, their birthday gift will probably feel better if it is cozy, homey and soft. They want something intimate, a collage of images from their trips, or something to validate your close bond in a frame. They enjoy gifts that are specific and practical, but like it a whole lot more when memories are involved. If you prefer looking to the future, go for home furnishing or some sort of grand effort to make their routine lighter and flowing with more ease.

Positive Traits for December 8th Born

Healing Crystal

It stimulates their intuition and enriches their world with inspiration, helping them feel protected, productive, and at the same time emotionally involved with people around them. This crystal supports healthy sexual energies and stimulates metabolism, while mostly serving for emotional healing. It encourages love, compassion and self-worth, balancing the root and the heart chakra simultaneously and bringing protection for the most sensitive emotional issues.

These symbols talk about the light of giving, both material and spiritual, connecting the two in the imagery of the animal and human worlds intertwining. The need these individuals have to share what they possess and know shouldn’t overcome their actual abilities and they are to take care of their primal needs first in order to truly be in a stable position of sharing the way they are meant to.
