December 18 2016 We Live by the Sun Feel by the Moon


General for Week Commencing: Monday 19 December 2016

   Aries Monday 19 December 2016  Mar 21 - Apr 19
While the Sun will always return to your career sector just before Christmas each year, even this isn’t won’t be enough to keep you in the game. It’s not that you’ve peaked too early and more that you have such a jump on both this professional year and on your 2017 professional year that you can afford to hold back. Regardless of when your professional year ends or even if you’re working through, a rush mentality will drop back dramatically in the early hours of the week. At the same time, a sense of adventure that ironically will often run its course just before the holiday period begins will instead deepen. By the time the Sun leaves your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery on Wednesday, a new sense of conviction will have taken hold, forming the basis of your New Year’s resolutions.
 
   Taurus Monday 19 December 2016  Apr 20 - May 20
There is an immovable line of financial, work and career forces that aren’t going to budge and Christmas or not, they will demand that you keep your money, work and professional hats on throughout the Christmas, New Year and the holiday period. This is something you need to be aware of from the get go, while at the same time seeing this as the opportunity it is. With Saturn spending his last Christmas in your financial sector for another three decades, Jupiter his first Christmas in your work sector in 12 years and Venus her last Christmas in your career sector for another three years, your problem is that you have too much support and too many opportunities to slow down for Christmas. However, push through regardless and you’re likely to find the wind taken out of your sails, with a need to not only work smarter but work to keep the Christmas and holiday spirit alive.
 
   Gemini Monday 19 December 2016  May 21 - Jun 21
We might be in the final two weeks of 2016, but there is still a lot of year to be packed into these final days. While the Sun’s departure from your relationship sector and return to your financial sector on Wednesday, will take the solar spotlight off your relationships and put it onto your financial situation and money matters, there are two big moves before then. It begins on Monday with Mars’ return to your career sector, which will not only fire up your professional year in its 11th Hour, but unleash something that will continue to unfold well into the New Year and in fact, right through to late April. It is just hours later and on the same day, that the last Mercury retrograde phase of 2016 begins. Just two days before the Sun is due to turn the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters, Mercury brings a chance to return to the drawing board.
 
   Cancer Monday 19 December 2016  Jun 22 - Jul 22
While there are likely to be some work/life balance issues this week, especially over Christmas weekend itself, the gods have a secret weapon up their sleeves and they know exactly when to play it. The Sun’s departure from your work sector on Wednesday won’t be a chance to take your work hat off and instead, this is when a major alliance of work and career forces will lock into play. Jupiter, spending his first Christmas in your home and family sector in 12 years is not happy about this and will mount a severe protest, with work/life balance tensions evident from the get go. This will only get stronger as the week progresses, with no sign of any reprieve, until the gods play their wildcard or should that be Christmas gift. Playful lunar vibes in play from Christmas Eve through to Boxing Day will help keep things in perspective.
 
   Leo Monday 19 December 2016  Jul 23 - Aug 22
This is usually the point in the year where the battle to find a balance between work and play gets serious, but also a little lopsided, with the Sun’s return to your work sector on Wednesday always tilting the scales towards work matters. Yet you will not only find resistance from playful forces that are standing their ground or from the adventurous forces that they’ll team up with, but within the ranks of the professional gods themselves. The Sun might shift the solar spotlight onto your work situation, matters and options on Wednesday, but with Mercury turning retrograde here on Monday this will see the bottom fall out of any urgency, in the early days of the week. Not due to leave until February, Mercury will throw out the anchor to slow things down. Instead of having to fight for a balance between work and play, it is happening naturally.
 
   Virgo Monday 19 December 2016  Aug 23 - Sep 22
While Mars’ departure from your work sector on Monday won’t bring a chance to take your work hat off completely, with Venus staying on until the New Year, this is the point where a lot of the urgency is going to evaporate. Regardless of when your professional year ends or even if you’re working through, you will find that by Tuesday a rush mentality and frenetic pace will drop back considerably. With Venus not only spending Christmas in your work sector but aligning with Jupiter in your income sector on Christmas Day, taking your work or money hats off won’t be an option, but it will then become more about getting a sense of what’s possible. As Mars turns his focus onto your relationships there might be some relationship tensions in the early part of the week, but by midweek this will turn into a new sense of resolve.
 
   Libra Monday 19 December 2016  Sep 23 - Oct 23
Something so profound is happening over Christmas this year, that it could create a major paradigm shift, one that changes the whole way you look at not only your relationships, but what you expect from the future. The whole period from this Tuesday through to New Year’s Eve is likely to challenge what you thought you knew about yourself and what you wanted from your relationships, but also when the support to turn every wish into a reality will also fall into place. This might change your view of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, but with the support to make it happen. This creates the potential for some major breakthroughs. In the meantime, don’t be surprised if life suddenly gets a lot busier this week, with Mars’ return to your work sector on Monday giving the closing days of this professional year a new lease of life.
 
   Scorpio Monday 19 December 2016  Oct 24 - Nov 21
The week’s cosmic landscape is starting to resemble a chessboard, with the planets making strategic moves that might not make sense at the time, but always thinking two steps ahead, they eventually will. Point in question is Mars’ return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on Monday, a move that on the surface is a welcome, but not game changing chance to bring some fun and passion into the final weeks of 2016. However, by the time you reach the weekend it will be clear what a stroke of genius this actually is. The professional gods are not only refusing to let you take your work hat off over Christmas and the New Year, you may even find work tension and job pressure building. Mars can’t change that, but along with Venus making home where your heart is this Christmas, he’ll make sure life doesn’t become all work and no play.
 
   Sagittarius Monday 19 December 2016  Nov 22 - Dec 21
Something is being awoken this week that is set to put a smile on your face, with the final days of your birthday month bringing a sense of excitement about the journey ahead. While there will be a chance to tie up loose ends on the professional front in the early part of the week, it is clear that the professional gods have no heavy demands on you, as they have done in previous years. Regardless of when your professional year ends or even if you’re working through, you will find that by Wednesday you’ll be ready to embrace the holiday spirit and there will be nothing stopping you. Yet it’s as your birthday month ends on Wednesday that the real journey begins, sensing that this new solar year is not only going to be empowered, but there is a real chance to follow your heart. Something is being awoken, reminding you that life is waiting and is there to be lived.
 
   Capricorn Monday 19 December 2016  Dec 22 - Jan 19
With lucky Jupiter in your career sector until October 2017 keeping your professional hat on over Christmas, New Year and the holiday period was always a given and a price you had to pay. With Venus not only spending Christmas in your income sector, but the two aligning on Christmas Day, it’s clear that neither the money nor professional gods are going on holiday this year. Yet this is bigger than anything mundane or specific and is more a chance to wake up to how many options you have. Just in case there was the temptation to let this get out of hand, work/life balance is being strictly enforced. This is also a week where communication becomes both easier and a lot more important. While Christmas will be a special time for family this year, the Moon steps in to make Christmas weekend especially important for friendship this year.
 
   Aquarius Monday 19 December 2016  Jan 20 - Feb 18
By the time Mars leaves Aquarius on Monday 2017 is still just under two weeks away and your birthday month and new solar year is still a month away, yet this has given you a jump on both. It is then that Mars will give not just give you a last minute financial boost, but will kick off what could some of the most lucrative weeks of 2016 and months of 2017. For while Mars returns to your income sector on Monday to declare war on any glass ceilings, he will continue to attack them with a battering ram right out to late January, by which point Venus will be on hand to take over. Mars will be on hand to fight for a last minute Christmas bonus, pay rise or untapped income potential, as well as coming in handy when it comes to striking a bargain when Christmas shopping. Yet more important than the money is a chance to fight for what you deserve across all the currencies in your life.
 
   Pisces Monday 19 December 2016  Feb 19 - Mar 20
In what is destined to be a big week for professional, income and financial matters, the whole dynamics of the year shift for you in the early hours of the week. It is on Monday that Mars’ return to Pisces will see the wind pick up in your sails again and warrior energy start to surge through your system. With 2017 still just under two weeks away and your birthday month and new solar year not starting until February, this will all of a sudden give you a jump on both. Whatever you’re facing, either this week, the rest of this year and into 2017, you’ll have energy to spare for the things that excite you. This will provide the motivation to get as much as you can out of 2016 before it ends. In the meantime, while you may have trouble keeping your money and professional hats off over Christmas, adventurous lunar vibes should help put Christmas weekend in particular into perspective.
