If you're searching for ASX dividend shares to buy for a passive income in December, then the two listed below could be worth looking at.

Both have been tipped as buys with plenty of upside potential and attractive future yields.

Here's what you need to know about them:

Charter Hall Retail REIT (ASX: CQR)

The first ASX dividend share to look at is Charter Hall Retail. It is a supermarket-anchored neighbourhood and sub-regional shopping centre-focused property company.

Citi is very positive on the company and has previously highlighted its "defensive net property income growth despite rising interest rate profile."

As for income, Citi is expecting the company to be in a position to pay dividends per share of 26 cents in FY 2024 and then 27 cents in FY 2025. This will mean very generous yields of 8.1% and 8.4%, respectively, for investors.

Citi has a buy rating and a $4.10 price target on its shares.

Westpac Banking Corp (ASX: WBC)

Another ASX dividend share that could provide investors with a big yield is Westpac.

For example, Ord Minnett is expecting the big four bank to reward shareholders with a fully franked dividends of 145 cents per share in FY 2024 and 151 cents per share in FY 2025.

Based on the current Westpac share price of $21.37, this will mean attractive dividend yields of 6.8% and 7%, respectively.

Ord Minnett has an accumulate rating and a $28 price target on its shares.

Woodside Energy Group Ltd (ASX: WDS)

A final ASX share that analysts are expecting a big dividend yield from is Woodside Energy.

A note out of Goldman Sachs reveals that its analysts "see long-term value in WDS" at current levels.

As for income, the broker is expecting the energy giant to pay fully franked dividends of US$1.20 per share in FY 2023 and US$1.27 per share in FY 2024. Based on the current Woodside share price of $31, this equates to 5.9% and 6.2% dividend yields for investors.

Goldman also sees plenty of upside for the Woodside share price over the next 12 months. It currently has a buy rating and a $36.30 price target.
