We enter the Capricorn Season more fully this week when Mercury leaves fiery Sagittarius for the firm practicality of earthy Capricorn on Tuesday. Earth excels at taking what fire inspires and making it real . . . that is, of course, if the ideas generated aren’t too far out there. We’ll be finding out if that is the case in the days and weeks ahead.
If you want to know what will be needed to make Christmas merry, please draw on the sextiles between the Capricorn Sun and Mercury with Neptune in Pisces on Christmas Eve and the day after Christmas. Compassion applied with a liberal dose of earthy common sense is what is needed. Help clean up after the festivities, share holiday leftovers with those in need and give your most annoying relative the benefit of the doubt.
The temptation to squabble with your nearest and dearest will be hard to resist when Mars in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries on Christmas Day. The peace loving Libra Moon is on hand, furthering the desire to avoid confrontations if at all possible. If you are opening gifts, make sure it is done in an orderly manner. Need I suggest the importance of company manners and indoor voices? Rude, self-centered behaviors are the most likely source of contention.
Over the weekend, the Sun will conjoin Mercury in Capricorn and both will square Uranus in Aries. The cardinal rule is to listen actively and respectively to whatever is being said before jumping to conclusions. We may end up agreeing to disagree but at least all sides will have had a chance to be heard.
Something to weigh over the next couple of weeks is the difference between being assertive and outright aggressive. Are we in need of asserting ourselves to make sure we don’t get walked on? Or are we the ones doing the walking. Taking a few moments to consider the other person’s point of view may help as well as consistently practicing kindness, compassion and consideration.
Have a lovely Christmas!
Career demands pick up this week for you, Aries, and it might be tempting to snap at your partner when they bring up holiday plans when you feel you already have too much going on. Keep in mind they might bite back before you say something.
Like your fellow earth signs, Taurus, you are probably enjoying the calmer, more grounded atmosphere now. What you may find yourself doing with some regularity for the next few weeks, is reviewing decisions affecting your finances. It is also possible old acquaintances might come by to see you.
I know you hated to see the delightful giddiness of the past month slip away, Gemini, but change is one thing you understand quite well. Now the focus for you is on less fun things like joint finances and debt. Good time to review your basic financial picture.
Your one-on-one relationships take center stage now, Cancer, along with some potentially contentious input from various family members. A surprising source of kindness and support may come from your brother and sister in-laws. Please watch out for red flags at work.
As this year winds to a close, Leo, you might sit yourself down and take a long look at your health and well-being. If you decide you need to make some serious changes in your diet and exercise program, this is a very good time to get started.
On the whole the current sky favors you, Virgo, and brings out your creative side in a calm, centered manner. If you are considering putting more of your resources into your creative pursuits, check out the costs first to avoid unpleasant surprises.
Well, Libra, it is quite possible you will surprise more than one person when you take a firmer stand than usual this week! For one thing, you probably won’t hesitate to let unruly relatives know when they are out of line. Family gathering could get very interesting.
Scorpio, you can’t help but benefit from your mind working like a well oiled machine these days. What might surprise those close to you is your willingness to spread kindness and goodwill rather than your usual cutting wit. Still not a good idea to push you too far.
Time for you to get serious about taking a good long look at your personal finances, Sagittarius. If you need some help figuring out your next step, you might talk to your parents or other family members. Holiday get-togethers may turn out to be more fun than expected.
I’m not sure whether or not you are going to enjoy being so visible now, Capricorn. Whilst you might receive well earned recognition, you may also be the target for some less pleasant attention too. Meeting work related demands may cause problems at home.
You are often outspoken, Aquarius, especially when it comes to expounding on philosophical matters. Yes, you do have many brilliant ideas and wonderfully creative solutions to big picture problems but be sure your audience is receptive before you share those ideas now.
You may be called on many times in the coming week, Pisces, to play peace maker in social situations. You do have a talent for bringing out the best in others when you choose to do so and this is an excellent time to practice that talent!
If you know your Rising sign, read the horoscope for it too. 😀
