Your horoscope for December 6 to 12, 2018

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Mercury ends retrograde on new-moon Thursday. While we now have the green light to make big decisions and purchases, make sure the distinction between wishful thinking and reality is clear.

      The new moon in Sagittarius puts everything to do with speculative markets, trendsetting, travel, transportation, and the holidays into fuller swing. Noting that Neptune in Pisces, a signature for iconic passages, is in dynamic aspect to the new moon, watch for G. H.W. Bush’s funeral to gain exposure beyond the ordinary. Neptune’s influence on the new moon also increases the attention on oil/oil transportation, justice-seeking, truth-seeking, lies and cover-ups, media coverage, religion and spiritual matters, loss, lost souls, addicts, the sick, the needy, and the homeless.

      On Friday, Mars/Neptune begin a new two-year manifesting cycle. Unfolding over time, this exposing transit brings hidden potentials to life. For some, it is the stuff dreams are made of, i.e., fame and fortune, love and romance, creative opportunity, a vocational calling or ultimate path of service, a more vibrant relationship with the divine. For others, it is a time to surrender to the process and to place faith in the bigger picture, to let go and let god.

      The Mars/Neptune transit can also unleash unresolved anger, which usually takes us by surprise. Theft can too. One last thing to say is that Mars/Neptune can set up an attack on the immune system. Guard your health!

      That’s the big-picture rundown. On the day-to-day front, the Capricorn moon keeps the weekend in good running order. Tuesday/Wednesday, the Aquarius moon keeps it lively. Hitting a fuller swing, Mercury enters Sagittarius on Wednesday afternoon.

      March 20 - April 19

      The gods are on your side. What’s coming your way soon may not be visible just yet, but know that Thursday’s new moon holds better-than-average potential. Continue to clear it away and simplify where you can. As of Friday, Mars/Neptune provides a fresh infusion of creativity and incentive. Mercury into Sagittarius, starting next Wednesday, puts you on the plus side.

      April 20 - May 20

      Venus is freshly into Scorpio. Mercury ends retrograde in this same sign on Thursday. Targeting an unfinished matter (karmic and actual), both planets aim to strip it down so that you can better see what you are really working with. They’ll stoke you with enough incentive to get more committed to making the necessary and desired change. Saturday/Sunday, the going is good.

      May 21 - June 21

      The new moon keeps you occupied (perhaps swamped) with the work or working-it-out end of things, but look to Mercury resuming directional motion to place you onto the progress-and-improvement side. As of next Wednesday, Mercury begins a four-week stint in Sagittarius. More people to see, places to go, money to spend, and more to enjoy. Let the good times roll!

      June 21 - July 22

      Thursday’s new moon coincides with the end of Mercury retrograde. You should feel this as the start of an improvement curve. Mercury and Venus in Scorpio provide you with the ability to read people and situations very well. They also loan you willpower, persuasive power, and good sexy. Saturday/Sunday, you’ll keep it under good control. Monday through Wednesday, keep it causal and spontaneous.

      July 22 - August 22

      During the next few days you could find or fill in something. Too, you can gain the opportunity to take it a step further with someone key, perhaps a family member. Mercury has ended retrograde, but for the next week it will continue to keep you focused on bringing it up to speed. Monday to Wednesday, people keep you busy.

      August 22 - September 22

      You are a sharp one! You’ll zero in on it or them even better now that Mercury has ended retrograde. Venus in Scorpio helps you to make a significant impact or impression. Both planets give you an ability to strengthen communication tracks and emotional bonds, to connect, converse, write, and express in a more meaningful way. The weekend is yours to own.

      September 22 - October 23

      Venus in Scorpio, the end of Mercury retrograde, and Thursday’s new moon prompt a fresh perspective on how to tackle it or them. The transits can also stimulate creativity, fresh financial opportunity, a new intimate-relationship prospect, or the deepening of an already established relationship bond (friend, colleague, or lover). Aim for quality over quantity this weekend. Monday to Wednesday, instincts serve you well.

      October 23 - November 21

      Venus tenants Scorpio for the rest of the month, but Mercury will continue in your sign only through next Wednesday. Both planets can keep you consumed with something specific. That’s soon to change. At work or on your own time, the weekend can see you get a lot accomplished. As of Monday, you’re onto something fresh.

      November 21 - December 21

      Accompanied by the end of Mercury retrograde, Thursday’s new moon in Sagittarius can bring you a fresh infusion of inspiration or hopefulness. Still, you are wise to take it slow over the weekend, especially if you aren’t up to snuff healthwise. As of Monday/Tuesday, you’ll be ready to reengage. You’ll be up to fuller capacity once Mercury treks into Sagittarius on Wednesday.

      December 21 - January 19

      You are better at keeping secrets than most folks would realize. You are also more intuitive and more clued in than most folks know. Thursday’s new moon keeps you busy behind the scenes. Friday too. Saturday/Sunday, you are a master of good planning and timing. Monday to Wednesday, innovation and spontaneity serve you well.

      January 20 - February 18

      Venus in Scorpio and the end of Mercury retrograde assist you to get it under better control and to accomplish something more tangible/visible. Thursday’s new moon also helps you to get it/yourself moving in a new direction. A new goal or prospect can grow into something quite substantial. Monday to Wednesday, you’ll hit all systems go.

      February 18 - March 20

      Have you been derailed or at a loss of late? Now that Mercury retrograde is over, you’ll see plans and prospects gain better ground. Thursday’s new moon begins a next phase. As of Friday, Mars in Pisces joins forces with Neptune to begin a new two-year manifesting and make-it-real cycle. Over time, potentials will prove their worth.
