Your horoscope for December 14 to 20, 2017

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      While Mercury in Sagittarius continues in retrograde, trusting your intuition or first impression is likely correct, but it’s always wise to consider all options. Tunnel vision can be a folly of the retrograde cycle. If second-guessing gets the better of you, take a short pause.

      Finishing out the workweek, Mercury retrograde teams up with Venus. It is a helpful transit for reevaluating where you are at and where you think you are heading to next. Overspending, overeating, or indulging more is likely, but ’tis the season!

      Synchronicity keeps it upbeat for the weekend. The sun’s trine to Uranus on Saturday sets a great backdrop for socializing, shopping, and keeping the spark well lit. Sunday’s new moon in Sagittarius is wonderfully aligned with Mercury retrograde, Venus, and Uranus. Heart, body, mind, and soul should find no trouble hitting the Goldilocks zone. By all means, make the most of the moment!

      For the past two-and-a-half years, Saturn has taken up residence in Sagittarius, a mobilizing and broadening archetype. During this transit, you may have felt subjected to or overwhelmed by matters beyond your control. The future and its prospects have likely taken on a more serious or urgent tone. Late Tuesday, Saturn enters Capricorn, its home sign. During the next two-and-a-half years, Saturn will work to complete the process that is already under way, to cement a new reality baseline. If it doesn’t have what it takes to withstand the test of time, it will not. It will be replaced by something that can.

      March 20 - April 19

      Places to go, things to do, people to meet, money to make, money to spend: now through the weekend, the stars help you to make the most of it. Great ideas, rapport, and entertainment are on the ready dial-up. A spark can be easily lit. Saturn in Capricorn, starting late Tuesday, places you at or closer to a right-time, right-place threshold.

      April 20 - May 20

      Thursday/Friday are great for reconnecting and for loving them up. Saturday/Sunday also pushes the refresh button or puts you on the move in some well-timed and opportune way. Monday/Tuesday, get on it; get it done. Saturn’s transit through Capricorn, starting late Tuesday, is of benefit to your sign. The transit helps you to build it better and to reap more reward.

      May 21 - June 21

      As the week finishes out, you could have a change of heart, more to discuss, more to buy, or further to go. It all works out, perhaps even better than expected. It’s an ideal weekend for socializing and for tapping your creative genius. Saturn in Capricorn puts a more serious spin on building financial security, on parents or parenting, and on relationship contracts.

      June 20/21 - July 22

      Whether it is another discussion or taking it further in some other way, Mercury retrograde can see you revisit something lucrative or beneficial. More time, effort, or money is required, but you stand to gain in the short and long term. The weekend is full to the brim but mostly smooth going. Saturn in Capricorn helps or forces you to build it better.

      July 22 - August 22

      A delightful gift, reconnection, social event, financial bonus, or piece of news ends the week on the upbeat. Love and pleasure hit a high note too. Saturday’s Sun/Uranus and Sunday’s new moon keep the action going strong. Over the next couple of Saturn-in-Capricorn years, it is wise to put maximum effort toward your health, financial security, and professional development.

      August 22 - September 22

      You’ll find yourself on a good bounce-back through the rest of Mercury retrograde. Now through mid–next week, the stars dish up good prospects for significant improvement with a family member, your health, or regarding a recent challenge. Saturn’s advance into Capricorn is of benefit to your sign. It is a personal-fulfillment and success-generating transit.

      September 22 - October 22

      A full-to-the-brim, on-the-go few days lie ahead. Planned or serendipitous, reconnections are delightful. This weekend’s checklist: socialize, shop, enjoy yoga, sports, et cetera. Whether subtle or obvious, Saturn in Capricorn, starting Tuesday, lays the foundation of new home, family, and personal-life reality. Parents, parenting, real estate, downsizing, and professional reputation gain priority focus.

      October 22 - November 21

      Thursday’s moon in Scorpio keeps you going strong. Despite Mercury retrograde, you’ll have a knack for timing it right and for making the most of it through the weekend. Monday onward, slow it down/pace yourself. Aim to stick to the budget or pull back on the unnecessary extras. Saturn in Capricorn, starting Tuesday, helps you to put time and money to better use.

      November 21 - December 21

      Beyond a time to partake, enjoy, and make merry, Mercury retrograde teamed up with Venus on Friday can gift you with special attention. It can also stir up fond memories or fresh insights. Sunday’s new moon is laden with auspicious potential, especially so if it is your birthday. Materially and emotionally, Saturn in Capricorn gives you something more substantial to build from.

      December 21 - January 19

      While your sign is one of the most nostalgic regarding the holiday spirit, no one will fault you if you want to disappear for the weekend. Through Sunday, no matter where you are, it’s easy to get swept up. As of Monday, you’re back in full command. Saturn in Capricorn puts a more serious spin on actions and transactions.

      January 20 - February 18

      It’s a great weekend to go all out; travel, socialize, or pick from your greatest-hit list. One way or another, Venus/Mercury retrograde make for delightful reconnections. Spending is unavoidable. Monday onward, finish it off; wind it down. As of Tuesday, slow down and take a load off. Less is more. Don’t have to? Don’t.

      February 18 - March 20

      The weekend could bring news and mark a special occasion, event, anniversary, or milestone. Now through Monday, you’ll hit a well-timed finish line. Saturn in Capricorn, starting late Tuesday, launches an important next stage, phase, or life chapter. Saturn cements the growth from the past couple of years and puts you closer to a long-awaited goal post.
