Your horoscope for December 8 to 14, 2011
Just before midnight on Friday (December 9), Uranus ends its five-month retrograde tour. Early Saturday morning, (6:32 a.m. PST), the full moon in Gemini delivers a total lunar eclipse, the final one of six eclipses this year. On Tuesday (December 13), Mercury retrograde ends.
A lunar eclipse raises emotional tides and more. Triggered by Uranus, the Great Awakener, Saturday’s eclipse is particularly hot-wired. Watch for matters to start moving along more quickly prior to the actual event. When the Gemini/Sagittarius axis is ignited, talks, negotiations, and legal matters reach critical turning points. News happens, an important message is delivered, and we suddenly become much better educated and informed. It is all about the talk and the walk. Where does the future lead and what steps need to be implemented in order to bridge from here to there? Who knew what and when did they know it? We sift through the opinions, appearances, truths, and versions of the truth. Faith, envisioning, and missions are tested. Hope can be raised, or it can meet the stark light of day.
More than one pressing issue can claim attention. One thing hinges on another. Once the breakthrough occurs, a sequence or domino effect rapidly follows. The influence of Mars in Virgo, Ceres in Pisces, and the end of Mercury retrograde suggest the eclipse is clarifying and corrective.
March 21 - April 20
No matter who you consult, advice seems to point you in the same direction. Still, you may feel lingering uncertainty about how to play it next. Watch for the lunar eclipse to set your compass straight, especially regarding a sibling matter, friendship, legal issue, or future plan. Look to events, messengers, and synchronistic communications to clear up your dilemma.
April 21 - May 20
You’ve had a lot coming at you over recent weeks. Despite the fast pace and pressure of it all, it seems you have navigated your way along quite well. You can expect this productive fast track to continue. Over the next couple of days, watch for a conversation, interview, or offer to thrust matters into a relationship or financial race ahead.
May 21 - June 21
The lunar eclipse in Gemini can be inspiring, unleashing, or unhinging. Even though a second sense has been building, you can still be taken by surprise. Emotions or more may fly out of control. The defining moment is but a flash, but the imprint is lasting. Watch for news, an answer, arrival, or departure of significance. Tomorrow begins now.
June 22 - July 22
Uncertainty may have plagued you in recent weeks, but you are about to get much better clued in. Watch for Saturday’s lunar eclipse to reveal the missing key or show you where you have left yourself vulnerable. Have a standby or backup plan ready, and continue to safeguard as much as possible. Once the moment strikes, you’ll be required to act fast.
July 23 - August 22
If you haven’t been able to bring yourself up to speed well enough yet, trust the lunar eclipse to assist you. In fact, life is about to hit the fast- forward button. Once in motion, you’ll find yourself going strong and staying strong. Opportunity is expanding, not diminishing. Keep trying it on for size until you find the right fit.
August 23 - September 22
It may look like “different day, same page”, but it is not. Take nothing for granted and make sure you know what you are signing on for. Respect the rules, match expectations, and do all that is asked. Timing is everything. Play the game right and you’ll gain ground fast. A small change in your perception, attitude, or plans can make all the difference.
September 23 - October 23
Uranus is particularly hot on the charts of those born on or around September 23, but of course we are all getting a jolt of the unexpected. An especially eventful and informing weekend lies ahead. Stay ready to spring into action on a moment’s notice. Watch for news, official notice, a proposal, a visitor, or a long-awaited opportunity.
October 24 - November 22
The eclipse can bring news or additional information critical to a financial matter. There can be an important decision to make, renegotiations to do, or papers to sign. Events could suddenly thrust you in an unexpected direction. Go with it and see where it leads you. Past Tuesday, you’ll gain a better sense of how much it can do for you.
November 23 - December 21
What occurs for another is likely to create a high impact or backlash for you, too. The lunar eclipse can be particularly polarizing or challenging for those born on or around December 9. Any relationship or circumstance that no longer serves you positively will come to an end, perhaps abruptly so. If it is meant to be, it will begin to thrive.
December 22 - January 20
Saturday’s lunar eclipse can deliver a sudden insight or saving grace. Too, it can present a solution, correction, or a more workable alternative. Listen for the phone to ring. Someone may need your advice or help. Through January, Mercury will continue to keep your radar and creativity sharp. Venus loans you sway and swagger.
January 21 - February 19
Regarding love, luck, lifestyle, and creative endeavours, the lunar eclipse in Gemini is set to catapult you in one of two ways. Either you are at a destiny fulfillment peak, or you have arrived at the writing-on-the-wall threshold. From here onward, the only place to go is up. Amazing things can happen when you least expect them.
February 20 - March 20
While Uranus and Mercury are positive stimulants to your career prospects, the lunar eclipse can bring something unexpected to do with family, legal matters, real-estate matters, or renovations. Emotions can run high, so try not to race to conclusions. Patience, time, or explanations can be in short supply, although more of all three are necessary.
