Your horoscope for December 26, 2013, to January 1, 2014
Christmas passes like a blip for most of us. Despite the added pressure, traffic, or crowds, Thursday through Saturday can be relatively smooth-running. We are on the wind-down to the end of the calendar year, but the sun, Mercury, Mars, Uranus, and Pluto continue to keep life on a forceful forge-ahead.
By Sunday, it’s time to switch into something fresh. Let the day take you where it may, but also keep a close watch on time, expenditures, health, and safety. Monday evening’s rush hour can require extra patience. Tuesday’s early start can be a push, especially if you’re required to be somewhere you don’t want to be. Once in motion, it’s a relatively smooth sail.
The usual way of ringing in the New Year will suit you just fine. The evening is likely to be a quiet and predictable one, with the moon/Uranus supplying a late-night energy or excitement boost. Good on you for prearranging your ride home if you plan to party.
Perhaps you aren’t in the habit of taking them seriously, but new year’s resolutions can carry more than the usual weight thanks to Mercury, Mars, and Pluto boosting the new moon in Capricorn on Wednesday. A new moon falling on the first day of the year is rare. On a symbolic level, it suggests a strong, fresh start for all.
My best wishes to you for joyous abundance in 2014.
March 19 - April 19
Once Christmas speeds by, other priorities clamour for your attention. Even if you’ve managed to squeeze in a break from the work, it seems you are still in labour over something. Allow a little more time to plan it out and/or build
up to it. Use Wednesday’s new moon to put it in writing (metaphorically speaking).
April 19 - May 20
The stars are on a move-ahead. One way or another, so are you. Watch for a number of good flashes or “aha” breakthrough moments over the next few days. Sunday through Tuesday gives a better sense of direction. New Year’s Eve delivers a late perk-me-up. Make a productive start to the New Year: set your intention and go.
May 20 - June 20
Christmas will soon be a thing of the past. You can be busier than you want or intend to be over the following few days, but once in action, it’s all good. Mercury and Wednesday’s cementing new moon suggests the time is ripe to take an official step forward regarding your finances, career, or relationship status.
June 20 - July 22
It’s over one hump and on to the next. The stars aren’t wasting any time, and neither should you. In fact, Sunday’s stars could strike you with restless-leg syndrome. Observe New Year’s Eve in your usual way, downplay it, or ignore it altogether. Wednesday’s new moon underscores the fact that a new reality is setting in and there’s no time to waste.
July 22 - August 22
Once the big day is over, you can still be in the thick of family or obligations through Saturday. Sunday and Monday are good play, travel, or move-it-along days. On Tuesday, you could feel obligated to force what doesn’t come naturally. Wednesday’s auspicious new moon will reward your due diligence. Stay real about your goals, put in the up-front time or effort, and be patient.
August 22 - September 22
A show of strength, head and heart in the right place, a more determined, confident, and wise you—the new year gets off to a great start. Wednesday’s new moon in Capricorn gains extra ground from Mercury, your ruler. Use this day to have the talk, with another or yourself. Your words, actions, and presentation will carry greater impact now.
September 22 - October 22
Monday/Tuesday keeps you on the go. You could feel impatient, challenged, or provoked, but as best you can, keep your feelings and opinions under wraps. Entertain at home or chill on your own for New Year’s Eve. Wednesday’s new moon prompts you to get yourself or your family better organized. Launch a renovation project or an attitude shift.
October 22 - November 21
Saturday brings you to a finish line or saturation point. By Sunday, you’ll start to pick up speed again. Ring in the New Year with a good friend or a few. Start the conversation or project, make a plan or commitment, get to the gym, or polish up your résumé, and aim to get the year off to a
November 21 - December 21
The weekend’s wind-down fits the bill just fine. Sunday/Monday revs it up for you again, perhaps unexpectedly so. No matter what you get up to, you seem to have a knack for good timing. Low-key plays it best for your New Year’s Eve celebration. Wednesday’s straightforward and down-to-business new moon refuels you with added can-do/ must do.
December 21 - January 20
Freshly in Capricorn, sharpshooter Mercury keeps you especially quick on the uptake, and with the comebacks too. Even though playing it smart is the aim, Sunday through Tuesday, the moment can get the better of you. Late-night action makes your New Year’s Eve worthwhile. Wednesday’s fresh-page new moon renews your resolve.
January 20 - February 18
Whether you catch a plane or not, Sunday/Monday sets you onto something fresh. New Year’s Eve is best spent at the movies, wrapped around the one you love, or away from it all on your own. New year’s resolutions can have better sticking power thanks to Mercury aligned with Wednesday’s new moon. Take your goals seriously.
February 18 - March 19
The holidays can tucker you out, but the stars continue on the push and shove for another week. Even so, Friday/Saturday runs smoothly; Sunday/Monday requires more effort. Observe New Year’s Eve with friends or family, make it a special date night, or spend it quietly—the calendar switch will prove more momentous than you realize.
