Week of Dec. 17-23, 2014
This Week: Dec. 21 marks the new moon in Capricorn, falling on the winter solstice as well. This signifies new beginnings. During this new moon, there will be a 29-degree Scorpio-Saturn element that pressures us into making these significant changes. Focus on new beginnings, and remove old, worn-out items, articles and ideas that no longer serve you in this life. Clear out closets on an emotional or physical sense, and allow room for growth and development. A fresh coat of paint, a donated coat — anything you can do to shift the space within your dwelling will certainly help matters of the heart and mind. Enjoy! I wish each and every one of you the happiest of holidays.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Romantic aspects may be challenged early on this week. Try not to butt heads too much. In fact, look at this as a bit of a growth spurt. Every relationship can fall into a stagnant time now and again. By week’s end, the “emotional weather” will begin to clear up, uncovering starry skies and clarity. The last thing you want to do is throw the baby out with the bathwater.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — A large gathering of people creates fabulous business opportunities for you in the weeks to come. You’re able to network with those of like mind and heart. You may be collaborating with another on a creative project. Try to explore the visions within, and release them out into the real world this summer. You will be amazed at the reaction this creates.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — An annoying neighbor or so-called friend could begin to get on your last nerve this week. It may be time to set a firmer boundary with this individual. They just don’t seem to “get the hint” on their own. Geminis can tend to take everything in — then explode when push comes to shove. Don’t allow this person to get the best of you. They are not the brightest bulb in the box, and are not aware of their own ignorance. The weekend allows time for a getaway. Take advantage of this aspect.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Support the decisions of a loved one this week, especially regarding home and property. They may feel a little nervous about changes and need you to encourage them forward. Your financial sector is improving with leaps and bounds. Your hard work and determination are finally paying off “big time.” This would be a good time to look at your long-term goals.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Romantic elements kick into high gear. You are ready, willing and able to live in the moment. This is good for your body, mind and spirit. Midweek provides you with a new business opportunity. Take advantage of this upgrade, and follow through with all of your leads.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — If it feels like you’re going through a grieving process, try not to stifle these feelings. Just allow them to flow and move through your system. This will not continue to plague you forever; this is only a temporary vibration. By week’s end, things begin to lighten up a bit. Friends and loved ones find humor in the strangest ways. This becomes highly contagious, and it definitely lightens the load in the near future.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You’re finally back on track financially. Slowly, but surely, you’ve reached your goals and removed restrictions from your life. Your social calendar begins to fill up. You’re trying to balance business and pleasure in the weeks to come. Try not to beat yourself up over everything you don’t get done — focus on what you do accomplish instead.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You may be worried about a female friend or co-worker this week, and for good reason. A loved one around you feels as though they are slipping into a dark place. You can see this, but you don’t know exactly what to do about it. Count on your spirit guides to give you the right insight. After the new moon, you will see improvements in all sectors of your life.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — You are very aware of how the past has affected your present state of mind. You have come to the conclusion that you will no longer allow the same pattern to affect the present. This is a huge accomplishment for you. Now, you can receive the benefits of your hard work and efforts without complications. Midweek brings new opportunities for finance. Take advantage of this growth and development.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Over the past week, you may have felt like you’re wearing a sign on your back that says “kick me hard.” This is a spiritual test. The message? Stand up for yourself! You don’t have to please all of the people all of the time. The most important thing you need to do now is please yourself. Opportunities pour in for business. Make sure you’re setting time aside for activities that release tension and stress. The weekend provides you with plenty of time to relax and enjoy your surroundings.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Things begin to simmer down in the workplace this week. After the past few weeks of over-dramatic pressure, this is a welcome sign of relief. This is a good time to consider booking a trip and getting away. You have had your ears filled with nonsense, and you’re exhausted with it all. Family is on board for a little adventure as well. Humor is the best medicine.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — News from family may start off as a bit of a shock, until you get the full story. Don’t jump to conclusions just yet. Listen and gather all of the information, then you can come up with a plan to resolve this unusual issue. The weekend may bring some unexpected guests to your home. At first, you may feel a bit annoyed by it, but as the weekend begins to progress, you find yourself surrounded with fun and laughter.
