Aries: You have many decisions to make. What will you take with you? What will you leave in the past? Venus in retrograde in Capricorn continues this process of sorting through your files. You are exploring your inner world and learning what you truly want. Meanwhile, you come across or overhear a random bit of poetry from a stranger that inspires you. 

Taurus: Your sense of right and wrong is in overdrive, and you seek to make the world a more fair place. This is not an easy task for just one person. You may be feeling discouraged and frustrated, but hope is the most treasured thing to keep close to one’s heart. The Sun’s shift into fellow earth sign Capricorn has you feeling fortified. 

Gemini: Something that you almost completely forgot about has returned to the surface of your waking mind. You feel reignited, you regain a firmer sense of self. Words and writing are highlighted for you under your ruler Mercury’s light this week. You express yourself best with humor.

Cancer: This week you are stepping outside of your comfort zone in terms of expressing your feelings to others. You are keeping it simple and direct. Venus retrograde in your opposite sign of Capricorn has you turning a lot of things around. You realize nothing is worth all the energy it takes to hide your true self. Secrets feel too heavy.

Leo: This week gossip tempts you, but don’t let it win. Sometimes we use gossip to get closer to someone, or because we don’t know what else to talk about. Get creative and think of a better topic. There is also a bit of chaos this week that puts certain plans on hold but it’s okay to pause and wait for a more opportune time. Things turn out for the best when you are ready. 

Virgo: The sun’s move into your fellow earth sign Capricorn has you feeling generous. You have the time and energy to help friends and family. The 29th to 30th see four planets in harmony with your sign creating a wonderful environment for enriching relationships and resolving money matters. There is an upswing of resources and information headed towards you as we close out December. 

Libra: This week you open up about how you are feeling and what you want out of your relationships. Communication is highlighted by Mercury as we reach the end of the month. This is a time for changing your trajectory if you want to. The sun in Capricorn brings energy to building stability, seeking security, and creating the environment that you want.

Scorpio: Your sense of responsibility is often what drives you. Some people may think this makes you far too rigid. The sun in Capricorn this week proves them wrong; it shows you that it’s always best to act in accordance with your values. Stay true to yourself and do things your way despite outside pressure.

Sagittarius: This week you are open to the messages of the universe. Your intuition sharpens and your mind is awakened. You are feeling more optimistic about career and financial matters as well. Getting a firm footing on practical matters is empowering. Independence is very important to you. You don’t feel like answering to anyone except yourself. Authority has never been your thing.

Capricorn: Capricorn’s solar season begins on the 22nd and brings with it a sense of ambition and self respect. You are methodical and motivated by results and material pay-off. You believe in what you can see. Your realistic approach is appreciated by others during this time. People trust you, come to you for advice, and look up to you. You are drawn to those who support your journey. 

Aquarius: This week, with two major planetary aspects in practical and earthy Capricorn, the longevity and integrity of things in your life becomes more important. You may find yourself wanting relationships that have a history or the potential to create a history. You might be making investments or creating things that you want to keep around for a long time. It’s not always about shiny new toys.

Pisces: Focus on simple pleasures this week. You may find that you have been caught up in the details, but in reality things are much simpler than they seem. Take a step back and view the bigger picture. The end of December and the beginning of the new year bode well for a bold and honest approach to love, career, and creativity. Jupiter enters your sign on the 28th and stays with you until May, giving you the courage to be more curious and adventurous. Many positive changes and impactful experiences await you!
