Monday 7th – Sunday 13th December 2015
Little Mercury, messenger of the gods, is transiting out of fiery, extroverted Sagittarius and into Earthy, introverted Capricorn on Thursday. This could well slow you down a little, as you begin to think more seriously about life, love and loot and to do only what is necessary, practical and traditional between now and 5th January. There is also a New Moon on Friday 11th December, joining the Sun in Sagittarius and bringing a wonderful mood of happiness and optimism. Many of you will be travelling this week, in harmony with the New Moon.
ARIES THE RAM ( 21 March – 20 April)
You still need to be really co-operative and this helps you to forge ahead with joint projects and to get along with people who might otherwise be quite difficult to deal with. You may have to let someone else call the shots, however, which may not please you and you might want to rebel in some way. However, you’
ll have the chance to make everything okay, if you want to do that. This is a good week for you to be travelling and to enjoy someone else’s hospitality.
TAURUS THE BULL (21 April – 21 May)
Like Aries, you too will be doing what other people want, but you should find it rather more enjoyable. Firstly, instead of clashing with others, you’ll meet with a great deal of appreciation. Show your artistic and creative side this week and enjoy some nights out, maybe listening to music, going to the movies, or having a drink with friends. Take a trip this week, too, in good company, to visit someone you love. Take a fresh look at your finances and accept a fun invitation.
GEMINI THE TWINS (22 May – 21 June)
Your festive mood becomes rather more serious from Friday, as you settle down to doing what is necessary, to assessing your cash situation and to helping out someone who is feeling poorly. However, it will not stop you from doing some very active socialising and having a lot of laughs with your friends. Keep an eye on kids who want to go a little crazy! Get involved in some artistic or charitable work, which you will really enjoy. Unattached Geminis could find new love this week! Or maybe make a new friend.
CANCER THE CRAB (22 June – 23 July)
The New Moon brings a different look to your working life this week and for some, this means it’s the Christmas party, with all your workmates. You might need to sort out some matters at home before you can attend, however. A few surprises may arise in your job and you may find you have some extra responsibilities. (Let’s hope this goes along with a raise.) You can have fun with the children in your life too – the New Moon in Sagittarius will encourage you to do some clowning around!
LEO THE LION (24 July – 23 August)
You’re in a real party mood at present and the New Moon ensures there’ll be a particular highly entertaining event this week for you to attend. It may involve your travelling quite a distance and perhaps even moving to a different place for a while. Are you having Christmas away somewhere, or just paying your respects to friends and relations at this time? Send your Christmas cards and contact everyone now in whatever way you fancy. Some of them have not heard from you for a while!
VIRGO THE MAIDEN (24 August – 23 September)
On Thursday, your focus shifts from your home and family to more frivolous matters and you’ll be spending the next few weeks doing a bit of partying. It will involve some work for you, however – maybe you’ll be showing off your culinary skills as you carry your latest creation to the house of a friend, or maybe you’ll be organising an event. There’s certainly someone marking a big occasion in their lives this week. You could be dong some child minding, too!
LIBRA THE SCALES (24 September – 23 October)
You continue to be very involved in your work, but you’re moving towards quite a large and impressive conclusion. Use your artistic and creative skills and things will go really well. You have money in your pocket, but it will be very easy for you to spend it, this week. From Thursday, you stop running around quite so much and begin to pay closer attention to your household and your family. Someone may be sick this week and will need your help.
SCORPIO THE SCORPION (24 October – 22 November)
You’re on the move this week: why not take yourself off to a little hideout where nobody will disturb you? You could do with a rest! It’s also a great week to head off to a big gathering – hopefully, a party! You are, in fact, in a very sociable and pleasant frame of mind right now. Take an opportunity to attend a cultural event in good company. The New Moon brings changes in your job – you may be ending a project, or just starting your Christmas break.
SAGITTARIUS THE ARCHER (23 November – 21 December)
You continue to prosper in your career and even those of you who are making a change unwillingly will find it turns out to be a change for the better! You’re inclined to look on the negative side these days – let this spur you on to finer efforts, because it will certainly turn out well for you! You may go on a bit of a spending spree this week, so make sure you’re buying wisely and not merely letting money run through your fingers. The New Moon in your sign gives you a brighter outlook, ready for a new beginning.
CAPRICORN THE GOAT (22 December – 20 January)
Christmas often makes you feel a little sad, so why not put these feelings to good purpose and do something really nice and charitable for people who are in need? This is also a great time to attend some interesting cultural and artistic events, and to meet siblings, or close friends, for a drink, or a meal. Mercury hovering on your solar ascendant encourages you to contact your mates and go out for some fun. The New Moon gives you a new attitude to life and you may decide to do something quite different concerning your domestic arrangements.
AQUARIUS THE WATER CARRIER (21 January – 19 February)
Don’t be afraid to try new things and to go to new places, as your experimental phase continues apace. You have the chance to visit someone generous now and to enjoy their hospitality – this a great week to go off somewhere, quite a distance from your home. There’s also a big event happening this week which should be fun for you, even if it means some of your favourite people are inaccessible for a while.
PISCES THE FISHES (20 February – 20 March)
There’s a lot of goodwill about this week and as usual, you’re showing how kind and generous you are. However, this time you receive the same treatment in equal measure, which is not always the case for you. You’ll be galloping off to various social functions over the next few weeks, including a very special occasion. The New Moon this week, right on your solar midheaven, brings interesting changes in your career. You may take on a new job, or take some time out – and you are certainly mixing with a lot of great people!
