After a quiet week, the sky lights up with plenty of action again. The tone promises to be more upbeat due to Mercury and Venus entering cheerful Sagittarius this week. Neptune in Pisces will square first Mercury the first of the week and then Venus on the weekend . . . please read all the fine print before signing and be skeptical about all those delightful promises your lover is making because Neptune’s fog machine will be working overtime!
We have a New Moon in Sagittarius on Thursday adding some holiday cheer. Sagittarius does enjoy a good party and as long as we remember to respect other people’s boundaries and beliefs, a good time will be had by all. Given Jupiter in Gemini is being prodded by Saturn in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn, we can also expect plenty of wild rhetoric and hot air. Steer clear of controversial topics if you can.
Uranus in Aries stations direct on Thursday though it has been at 4° Aries since mid-November and will remain there until mid-January. Those of you with personal planets and/or Angles at 4° in the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) may notice a very, very gradual sense of movement during the second half of December. Don’t expect miracles and continue to practice patience. Mercury in Sagittarius does trine Uranus on Friday and I see a possibility for breakthroughs and the beginning of Neptune’s fog clearing in our thinking.
Venus’s square to Neptune on the weekend may be wonderful for romance of the rose-colored glasses variety. It’s up to you whether or not you want to believe all those lavish promises . . . but if you do, I have this great piece of property for sale, never mind it’s under six feet of water. Is there an upside to this aspect? Yes, there is. If you want to project a glamorous image for those holiday parties, it’s perfect. Be sure to be home by midnight or like Cinderella your coach will turn back into a pumpkin.
Don’t be afraid to go out and have a great time laughing and playing with family and friends. Best plan may be to set limits ahead of time and respect those. If not, the hangover will not be pretty. Be kind, tolerant and patient during all the rushing about Sagittarius so loves.
Grand schemes and big ideas could be on your mind this week, Aries, and if you want these to eventually bear fruit discard all but the most practical. You still have to grit your teeth and be patient . . . not your best thing.
What you need to watch out now, Taurus, is someone who wants to sell you on a get rich quick scam. Usually you are pretty good at spotting those but not at this time. Hold off making any real commitments for a week or so.
This is an especially tricky week for you, Gemini, when sorting fact from fiction might be very challenging for you. You may also find you are more vulnerable to being sweet talked into something you ordinarily wouldn’t do by your significant other.
In your dealings with coworkers or business consultants of any stripe, Cancer, take care to make those are all on the up and up. If you are making travel arrangements for yourself or someone, double check all the pertinent details and allow plenty of time.
Oh boy, Leo, you are right at the top of the list for falling head over heels in love with a totally inappropriate person! If you do meet someone who fascinates you at least give yourself an out just in case of unpleasant surprises.
Virgo, I can hear you mumbling already about idiots who have no idea what they are talking about . . . and that’s probably your partner you are referring to. Dealing with family members could require extra patience this week. Take care of yourself.
This week, Libra, you might want to rein in your fantasies and carefully review what appear to be brilliant ideas before presenting them to others. If you need to sit down with a business consultant of some kind, it would be best to hold off.
As a rule, Scorpio, you are not all that trusting but at this time you may be caught off guard by an appeal from a lover or your child. As long as they aren’t asking for money, it’s OK. If they are, be sure you get ALL the facts.
Sagittarius, you may not know whether you are coming or going or what side is up right now. Lots of exciting possibilities are in the air and you not in a good position to evaluate how genuine they are. Take notes and wait until the fog lifts!
There might be some very important information, Capricorn, you don’t have access to at this time affecting your decision making process. Rather than push ahead with incomplete data, wait until you are sure you know what has been happening behind the scenes.
You could be up for some serious socializing this week, Aquarius, attending holiday parties for various groups you belong to. There is bound to be some heated discussions and you will probably be right in the middle of those! Please keep it light if you can.
When you want to, Pisces, you can do glamorous with the best of them. Put on your favorite costume for those office parties and knock ‘em dead. Flirt a little, break a few hearts and leave them asking for more. Have fun!
