Your horoscope for December 6 to 13, 2012

If last weekend’s sun/Jupiter opposition split things apart or widened the divide, look to next week’s new moon on December 13 for a fresh-page start. Having said that, from now until then, the stars provide plenty of opportunity to resume, repair, or heal. Stay hopeful and keep searching for the missing key.

Thursday’s Virgo moon can keep the workload front and centre, but by Friday we’ll be wanting to chat rather than punch the clock. Through the weekend, a smooth social atmosphere prevails.

Friday evening, switch it up and try something outside of your usual. Let the mood of the now win you over. The Sagittarius sun and Libra moon complement one another as Hanukkah begins on Saturday at sundown. Observe the tradition or reach out and touch someone; a candle lit will warm heart and soul.

Midday Sunday through early Tuesday, the moon navigates through emotional Scorpio. Watch the stirring undercurrents and recognize there’s more than one layer to peel back.

Mercury continues to square to Neptune as it switches from Scorpio to Sagittarius at the end of the workday on Monday. The alignment peaks while most of us are still in dreamland early on Tuesday morning. Mercury/Neptune can open up or release more than you knew was there to begin with. This is a creative, idealistic, mystical, and hopeful influence, but it can also be one of hype, added susceptibility, confusion, illusion, deceit, or wishful thinking. Buyer beware.

March 19 - April 19

Thursday could be a productive day to work things out with someone who is usually hard to reach. Maximize on strategy and minimize on dialogue. Friday through Sunday sets you on a good roll. Monday/Tuesday, Mercury in Sagittarius can break a silence, barrier, or creative block. There’s better opportunity to get your message across and/or find what you’ve been looking for.

April 19 - May 20

Stay alert and pay close attention to body language and first impressions. Listen closely to your own inner prompts too. You are gaining a preview of a building potential.

May 20 - June 20

Thursday to Saturday, you could stumble upon a better method or option. A key someone could introduce you to a new avenue or perspective. Don’t skim over things; you could miss something important. On Monday/Tuesday, employ creativity and avoid exacting work. Also, double-check your change, and keep a close watch on everything you do and say. In a distracted moment, you could lose or forget something.

June 20 - July 22

Mercury in Scorpio suggests there’s room to negotiate or make a turnaround where it will do you significant good. Watch for an opportunity to continue the dialogue or make an improvement. Take your best shot when you see it. On Monday/Tuesday, Mercury square Neptune can inspire your creative or romantic side, but they can also find you overly susceptible. Proceed with caution.

July 22 - August 22

Even if you only move the furniture around or put a few holiday lights up, a spruce-up will do you good. Thursday through Saturday, a change of plans spells improvement too. Mercury’s tour of Sagittarius, starting Monday, can boost your social life, love life, and holiday spirit. Monday/Tuesday keeps you fully immersed, but who knows how far you’ll get. Time can simply evaporate.

August 22 - September 22

Thursday through Sunday, aim to get several things accomplished in one run, call, or visit. Strategize well and you’ll free up me time. Still, don’t get overly fixated on a plan. Once you are at it, you’re likely to see a better way to play it. Monday and Tuesday, Mercury/Neptune can cause a temporary loss of focus, clarity, or momentum.

September 22 - October 22

A busy end to the workweek can find you especially worn out, but you’ll perk up fast once you own your time again. The moon is in Libra for the weekend, so you should find yourself going strong. Friday and Saturday evenings, spontaneity dishes it up best. At the start of the new week, follow inspirations. If you feel uncertain or confused, take a pause.

October 22 - November 21

Your radar gives you especially good signals throughout the weekend, so keep on monitoring it and follow your own good lead. People will convey much more than they say. Let stream of consciousness have free rein and watch for your creativity to produce a gem or two. Sunday and Monday, you’ll hold sway with others. You can be more easily seduced too.

November 21 - December 21

Friday and Saturday, you’ll prefer to coast rather than sweat it—good plan. If it comes easy, go for it. Otherwise, shelve it for another time. On Sunday, seek peace and quiet, and get your fill of spiritual replenishment. Mercury enters Sagittarius on Monday, but with Neptune to drain, diffuse, and confuse, you might not feel the energy boost until later in the week.

December 21 - January 20

A deadline or finish line can keep your attention fixed on the countdown. Although there’s added pressure and holiday congestion to get through, you’ll enjoy your weekend and move yourself along better than you anticipate. Monday can be an over-the-hump or transition day. Past Tuesday, you’ll gain a better sense of direction.

January 20 - February 18

On Friday, sell, talk, plan it, or team up; same-page accord comes easily. Your creativity, social life, and love life are on a good flow through the weekend. Monday/Tuesday can bring the unforeseen. Don’t make decisions or purchases if you feel overwhelmed or confused. Keep a reasonable distance from those who are sick—your physical immunity is low.

February 18 - March 19

Thursday/Friday could reveal a hidden advantage or help you score a bargain. As well, you could make inroads with a purse holder or someone in a position of authority. Keep in motion this weekend, but also remember to make things easy on yourself. On Monday/Tuesday, Mercury square Neptune blurs or confuses. Stay receptive but noncommittal.
