ARIES March 21 – April 19

The festive week brings thoughts about your career and future goals. You may have to do some overtime, or stand in for someone who can’t work. On Christmas Eve the Sun conjuncts Pluto, so there may be an issue with someone in authority. Try not to get into trouble and keep a low profile. Your social life looks great. A meeting with someone who shares your ideas and ideals will inspire you. You will feel very much at home with them.
TAURUS April 20 – May 20

You may have a desire to get away from it all, and enjoy a peaceful holiday week far from all the madness. Jupiter conjuncts Neptune in your career zone. This blending of energies may coincide with a job offer that is right up your street. It could be a dream come true, so grab it while you can. On Christmas Day, try not to work too hard. Delegate some of your tasks to others so that you have a chance to relax.

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

You may be about to set off on the journey of a lifetime, or may find a philosophy or belief system that changes your perspective on life quite significantly and offers fresh hope. Don’t let family issues spoil your Christmas Day. Put them to one side and enjoy the chance to spend some time together. If you need to borrow more money or increase your overdraft limit, try to do so before Saturday when Mercury turns retrograde in the same zone.

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Jupiter moves to conjunct Neptune in your joint financial zone, which may bring a financial dream within your grasp. Lucky you! Something you have been hoping, wishing, and praying for may be about to come true. If you are meeting up with family members there may be some lingering issues that need to be resolved. Smooth things over before they arrive, and avoid an explosion over Christmas dinner. Mercury turns retrograde on Saturday, so don’t sign or purchase big-ticket items.

LEO July 23 – August 22

Mars has recently turned retrograde in your sign, so plan your days as much as possible. Give yourself a chance to pamper yourself and look after your health and well-being. Jupiter moves to conjunct Neptune in your relationship zone, so you will be able to rely on others to give you the help you need. Perhaps the only thing stopping you from asking is pride – one of your pitfalls. Don’t let it. With careful handling, you can have so much fun over this festive week.

VIRGO August 23 – Sept. 22

A wonderful blending of energies on Monday may bring a golden opportunity your way. You may be offered a job or exciting project. Come Christmas Day, you are going to make gains in your business ventures. Being a Virgo, you will have all the details attended to so that everyone can enjoy your fabulous hosting skills. In terms of your health, you will notice that you are beginning to feel more fit and well – something you have been working toward for a long time.

LIBRA Sept. 23 – Oct. 22

Don’t let fear stop you – you need to be open to taking a chance. Meanwhile, there is a major focus on your home zone as both the Sun and Venus move into Capricorn this week. Early on, you may find yourself involved in a mountain of organizing. It seems to be you doing all the entertaining. Don’t give yourself so much work that you end up shouldering everything. Christmas is a time for sharing, so share the work, too.

SCORPIO Oct. 23 – Nov. 21

The coming week is going to bring some intense discussions, which could turn into arguments if you are not careful. If you want to make amends, it helps to talk from the heart and to listen to what the other person is trying to convey to you. Whomever you will be sharing this holiday with, it all looks very splendid. Everyone is going to be willing to chip in and share the work. It will be a fantastic experience.

SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

As Mercury turns retrograde over the coming week, and as the effects are likely to be felt early on, it helps to create a financial cushion that will enable you to survive any delays to payments into your accounts. This is going to be warm and wonderful week. There is plenty of opportunity to connect with friends and family. You will get many cards filled with messages of love and appreciation, and plenty of reasons to feel good about life.

CAPRICORN Dec. 22 – Jan. 19

You may need to juggle deadlines and get organized for the days ahead. Don’t suffer in silence – take the pressure off yourself. You don’t have to be the one carrying the burden. Share it with others. If you are single, the week ahead also holds plenty of promise in the romance department, especially toward the weekend. As Venus moves to conjunct Pluto, one meeting may turn into a relationship that seems to develop very quickly. Jump in – if you dare!

AQUARIUS Jan. 20 – Feb. 18

There is good news on Monday, which may coincide with a job opportunity, so go for it. On Christmas Day, you seem more in the mood to retreat from the world and to spend some time alone. Some may decide it is worth going on a real retreat where they can get away from it all to be able to get a chance to recharge their batteries, think their own thoughts, and to go back to their lives feeling much more humane again.

PISCES Feb. 19 – March 20

All that partying, dancing, mingling, and meeting new friends is going to be an intense experience. There seems to be no let-up for much of the week, yet you are happy to dive in and get the most of the coming days. There is also a powerful spiritual component as Jupiter moves to conjunct Neptune in your Twelfth House. You will want to do what you can to bring joy into the hearts of those who are suffering.
