Weekly Horoscopes for each Sign are listed below after the overview:
There isn’t a lot of major exact aspects happening between the planets this week but we do have a lot of movement of the planets taking place, bringing us into fresh new territory in some key areas of life. Of course, it's always a good idea to go back and read last week's horoscope as well for a recap as the energies of those planetary aspects are leading us into this week. When planets are moving away from each other and widening their orb away from precision point of their exact aspects with one another, that archetypal energy still reverberates in our lives.
The Moon is always the most active player in the sky as she moves so quickly. This week she is in Leo as the week begins and soon enters Virgo as Monday progresses. The Moon then transits through Libra in the middle of the week and right through to Scorpio at the end of the week. She meets Jupiter, Mars, and Venus along the way.
The Sun and Neptune are in harmony on Tuesday, bringing delight to life. The loftier, dreamier goals we have can get an injection of positive energy this week. This can be a great energy to set us up for the New Year to have faith in our goals. Whatever you find yourself dreaming about working towards in life can lead to revelations about practical ways you can turn that higher ideal into a reality.
Mercury in Capricorn and Mars in Libra are at odds with one another on Tuesday. This is when communications can be off. There can certainly be a power struggle brewing between opinions of right and wrong. Should you find yourself in disagreement with another, truth and facts will take precedence showing up frequently in their need to dominate the conversation to bring it back to level playing field.
Since there is a real drive for balancing our communications, the difference in how people of various perceived status levels speak with one another can be quite notable. Do you get uncomfortable around certain types of people or certain personality types and have difficulty finding the right words or way to fit in with different groups? Do you feel inferior or superior to others depending on who it is you're comparing yourself with or the circumstances of the situation? These are the type of considerations that can come up, especially when socializing is required. Issues of equality and political correctness can also be an issue that comes up for debate with stronger emphasis this week.
Mercury and Mars being at odds and the Sun in harmony with Neptune are the only major exact aspect with the planets we have this week is so they can take on a more obvious role in our lives. Most of the changes we have this week is with the transits of Mercury, Venus and Mars moving into new signs.
Venus enters Sagittarius on Wednesday, December 30, 2015 at 2:16 a.m. ET. This can feel like blessings arrive from the wisest, most profound places. It can also be that you feel an affinity to new subjects of interest. Life can feel more philosophical and how you appreciate and enjoy arts and beauty can take on much deeper meaning. An attraction to those who are humorous, worldly, experienced or foreign can increase now. Exotic products from other parts of the world, especially art, flowers, plants and jewelry, can seem more beautiful and attractive than usual.
As the Moon is traveling through Virgo she stands across the sky from Neptune in Aries on Wednesday. We can intuitively feel the difference between what is real, and what isn’t. This is made especially notable in relationships. We could also feel more drawn to romance and fantasy with more curiosity about what we don’t know about others.
On Thursday the Moon conjuncts Jupiter in Virgo that can give us a dose of faith in ourselves to get to work on what’s important in our everyday reality. If you feel too drawn into illusions. this can be a good time for a reality check where you step back to get more grounded and comfortable in all that reality has to offer you. Feeling in tune with your goals and the pathway to get there can feel much bigger and more prosperous than usual now, with a sense that there are lots of greater possibilities for you.
The North Node is also nearby which can make now feel like a time that is destined. As you focus on your dreams and how to get there, you’ll come to realize how on track you are to that bigger purpose of your life. This can be a great day for brainstorming your goals, especially since Mercury in Capricorn is in harmony to Jupiter and the North Node in Virgo - that’s got planning for the vision written all over it. The problem is though, with Mercury and Mars at odds this week, an inability to make up your mind in which is the best way to go can bring on a bit of stress or the feeling of pressure. Jupiter in Virgo wants you to be healthy and to make healthy choices which can help alleviate stress and put you in a grander frame of mind. It's a good time to come up with ideas and write them down. Thoughts can be quick and fleeting so writing them down can help you play around with ideas more so you can figure out which ones resonate best.
Happy New Year! On January 1, 2016 Mercury enters Aquarius.
This has New Year’s resolutions written all over it. New ideas about what you want for your future start to escalate. Ideas show up more quickly and there is hopefulness. Writing your future goals out would be well suited to today. The problem with New Year’s resolutions is that they aren’t really goals because there is usually no set date, they are simply wishes to stop or start something without any real backing to how you'll accomplish the intention. In order to make a resolution a reality you’ll need to set dates so that you move into the mode of planning. If you can’t at least make a plan for it, chances are you won’t be able to do it. Start with a plan. The future will come one way or another, but if you’re going to get where you want to go, you’ll need to take steps to get there.
Saturday internal debates are likely. If you’re having difficulty with authority and rules you could end up feeling more rebellious than usual. Your feelings about the meaning of life can remind you that to use your life well to be sure you are enjoying your time and making the most out of it.
Mars leaves Libra and enters Scorpio on Sunday. Mars is the ancient ruler of Scorpio, so today can start off a new kick of extra energy, passion and depth. Primal parts of ourselves come to the surface. The need to be driven and excited about how your life is changing, and the discovery of what life has to offer increases significantly now. This is where passion is at it’s most prominent and dominant.
The Moon enters Scorpio on Sunday as well and meets up with Mars. More people will find the night to be intriguing. The mysteries of late night and the different, creative energy that resides in nighttime hours can draw us in. Insomnia can increase, but if it does, rather than fight it, go with it. Get up in the late night and see where it takes you. This would be a great night for a hot bath by candlelight with the moonlight streaming into your window to prepare you for the coming week.
May your New Year be full of love, prosperity, abundance, inspiration, kindness, compassion and joy.
