The strongly waxing Taurus Moon with the Sun in Capricorn brings an auspicious time of earthly delights on Monday, Christmas Eve day. The Moon is exalted in Taurus, where our connection with the material world shows us how to enjoy its pleasures and blessings. Taurus Moon gives us strong determination. This bullish attitude brings the practical things that give us the edge to proceed. Our moods are comforted by the resolve to do well with whatever life presents to us. This is an excellent time to manifest beauty and enjoyment.
Despite the hubbub of doomsday clamor, 21st century complexities and commercialism to the max, we reach the peaceful and well celebrated holiday of Christmas on Tuesday, and much of the day will be joyous. The heavily waxing Gemini Moon brings talkative, communicative and thoughtful moods. As the Moon conjuncts with Jupiter, our sense of prosperity and jubilance is made complex. This is a good time to lower expectations, enjoy mindless games, unwind and seek laughter. Complex problems will work out in time. Now is the time to count blessings, drop grudges and relax the mind. Merry Christmas!
The Full Moon in Cancer, set to take place in the predawn hours of Friday, can be emotionally overwhelming as well as fulfilling. Since the Full Moon has begun to wane, we can expect to be somewhat tired, temperamental, capricious, defensive and moody. The Moon is ruled by Cancer and this is a good time to let emotions flow, to keep our emotions from being stifled or unduly subdued. Those who do not have the energy to defend their own emotional convictions may benefit more from a relaxing and nurturing atmosphere rather than in challenging situations. The past week of difficult astrological trials and holiday challenges has been exhausting and demanding for many people, so this is a good weekend to focus on relaxing as much as possible.

Aries (19 March – 19 April)
Element: Fire Planet: Mars Symbol: Ram Stone: Ruby
Aries: As you approach one of the most potentially stressful times of the year, it looks as though you have a choice to make, and it’s a choice that could contain a certain amount of conflict. The Full Moon on December 28 could be a tricky time since you may feel pulled in different directions. You may be too busy trying to consider what would be best for all concerned, but the more balls you try to juggle, the more stressful it will become. The question to ask yourself is: What do you care most strongly about right now? What matters most to you? Make that your priority. Focus on what feels right in your heart and don’t worry too much about the expectations of others.
Taurus: The key to having a successful holiday season is to take control of your mind. Most people declutter their homes from time to time, but few of us take the time to declutter the most important thing in our lives: our own minds, which are, of course, the very things that control our entire lives. Whether you enjoy the holidays or not is largely due to your perceptions, so perhaps you could try to adopt a more innocent, playful approach. Remember how you felt when you were little –the excitement and the joy of opening presents. Recapture the magic and the true spirit of the holidays which is about family, warmth, love and good cheer. Be prepared to compromise too, since this can be a time of year when tensions run high, but by being the person who gives first, you will instantly dissolve any tension. That may be an important lesson for you to carry with you in 2013, since Saturn in your partnership zone will be helping you to grow through your relationships. Giving, sharing and committing are all themes for you to think about this month, and by focusing more on others and what you can do for them, your heart will grow and fill with a love you might previously have not thought possible.
Gemini (20 May – 20 June)
Element: Air Ruling Planet: Mercury Symbol: Twins Stone: Aquamarine
Gemini: If all you want is to be happy in matters of the heart, then your wish looks likely to be granted. Venus in your relationship zone is casting a rosy glow over all your interacts with others, making this a perfect time to connect with a loved one, show someone how much you care, or simply enjoy sharing delights with others. Later on in the week, around the time of the Full Moon on Friday, you may once again have to ask yourself if it’s time to break free from a limiting situation that stops you from being yourself. It appears that this Full Moon will help you to face facts and then deal with a situation more constructively. Remember that with Jupiter in your sign for the next six months, you must concentrate on what brings you joy and what will enable you to grow. If you can make that your priority, 2013 will ensure that any new beginnings you create now will lead to some wonderful opportunities later on in the year.
Cancer (20 June – 22 July)
Element: Water Planet: Moon Symbol: Crab Stone: Moonstone
Cancer: If you find yourself getting heated this week, take a step back and ask yourself if whatever’s bothering you is really that serious. The Full Moon on Friday falls in your sign and opposes Pluto, so it could be an intense time for you, but forewarned is forearmed, so as soon as you feel your emotional state turning from happy to sad, angry, hurt or despondent, take a step back and see if you can inject some humor into the proceedings. Fun, creativity and laughter are the keys to staying sane and happy. Whether you’re playing with the kids, painting a picture, baking a cake, having fun with friends and family, or watching a comedy DVD, remember to let your hair down this festive season. And then, as you stand at the dawn of a new year, spare a moment to consider whether you want to make changes in your direction, move forward with your career or create a new life, because 2013 is a year that is going to be full of possibilities.
Leo (22 July – 22 August)
Element: Fire Planet: Sun Symbol: Lion Stone: Peridot
Leo: If you are wondering how you’re going to get all the energy you need to do everything that needs to be done this week, ask yourself if everything on your to-do list is essential. Remember that the holiday season is supposed to be about shared happiness and merriment, and whether you choose to burn out or enjoy yourself comes largely down to you. As the moon grows full on December 28, the message for you is to trust. Maybe you need to trust that everything will turn out okay, or you may need to place your faith in another person. Or maybe you need to trust yourself or higher guidance. There is a certain amount of conflict around you at the moment, but by focusing on lightheartedness and trusting that all will be well, you may circumnavigate the worst of the strife. Much depends on where you put your attention. There will always be things to feel unhappy about, and there will always be opportunities to find the joy in life so if you can attune your internal radar to joy, the holidays should surpass all your expectations.
Virgo: You are truly blessed as the planets are lining up nicely in your zone of fun so this is the ideal week to really express your playful spirit. From enjoying jovial times with friends and family to getting creative with your kids, make merriment your priority rather than getting stressed about stuff that probably doesn’t even matter. There is also the potential to carry this heartwarming, fun-filled creative spirit over into 2013, when any choices that you have to make will be better made from a place of creative inspiration.
Libra (22 September – 22 October)
Element: Air Planet: Venus Symbol: Scales Stone: Opal
Libra: If you’re not happy at home, you’re probably not happy within yourself. As the Sun, Mars and Pluto ferret about in your zone of inner self, home and family, it might be worthwhile to pay attention to any areas of agitation and seek to transform them. This may mean changing things at home or doing a bit of inner digging. Once done, this will enable you to be happy at home and everywhere else. When you have a happy and nourishing foundation for your soul, you will be ready to take great leaps forward with life’s choices and particularly with your vocation.
Scorpio (22 October – 21 November)
Element: Water Planet: Pluto Symbol: Scorpion Stone: Topaz
Scorpio: Your mental powers are second to none this week, but whether you choose to use them constructively or not is up to you. You might be tempted to form intense knee-jerk reactions, especially around the time of the Full Moon on December 28. A better use of your mental powers would be to focus on what you want to achieve and make this your mission. Don’t be distracted by conflict or upsets regarding your work, daily life or health. Moderation is the key and if you apply this simple formula, you will manage to enjoy the holidays without falling foul of the usual excesses. You may also want to channel your Scorpio power to manifest more of what you need. Focusing less on money is the way to go, but feeling abundant at this time of year helps one’s self image. With Mercury and Venus blessing your financial outlook with a happy vibration, whatever you need will materialize even faster with positive expectations. Tell yourself that whatever you spend will come back with extras. It’s very important during this week that you observe how your thoughts and feelings are mirrored back to you. The more you become a master of your thinking, the more you will become a master of your life.
Sagittarius (21 November – 21 December)
Element: Fire Planet: Jupiter Symbol: Archer Stone: Turquoise
Sagittarius: This is the perfect week to take a little risk or two and forget about the seriousness that may have colored your life recently. It is a good time to let your hair down, enjoy a social gathering, and be the life and soul you’re more than capable of being when you feel in the mood. With Venus and Mercury in your sign, you will certainly be on form in terms of attractiveness, wit, humor and curiosity, so remember that a little flirtation, a good dose of laughter and a walk on the wild side can all do wonders for your spirits. Don’t allow yourself to get bogged down with the minutia of life, and don’t let your natural fun-loving personality be upset by worries –especially financial ones. If a transformation is needed, the Full Moon on Friday will help you to turn things around in a quite dramatic way. This is a time to enjoy and you should manage to do so as long as you keep the focus on your relationships along with a little fun and frivolity while trying to make your festivities more meaningful.
Capricorn: Perhaps all you really want is a passport to an easier life. This may not have been the easiest year for you, but 2013 has plenty of happy events lined up for you and you can increase the frequency of good times by focusing on being creative. In the meantime, the Full Moon on December 28 draws your attention to a relationship matter that could have been a source of grief. It certainly looks as though something is creating a little upset, but instead of allowing yourself to get worked up, try to remember that this is the season to be jolly, so be determined to engage with others and enjoy yourself. You might find that the support of friends or a wise ear to listen to you is enormously beneficial, while just getting out and about could give you a whole new perspective on the matter. Try not to take things too seriously this week and turn your attention instead to 2013 and all that you wish to make of it.
Aquarius (20 January – 18 February)
Element: Air Planet: Uranus Symbol: Water Bearer Stone: Amethyst
Aquarius: Jupiter, the planet of joviality, generosity and good fortune is currently sitting pretty in your zone of fun and frivolity, making this possibly one of the best holidays you’ve had in a long time. You will, however, need to keep an eye on any discontent or dark moods that seem to rise up from nowhere. This is definitely a busy time of year, but do try to be conscious of your emotional state, as it could provide you with some very important clues about what needs to change. When the festivities are over, you will stand at the edge of a new year wondering if you’re heading in the right direction and whether you will be rewarded for all your hard work. Your emotional state will point the way forward, and the key is to follow the path of joy as opposed to the path of struggle.
Pisces (18 February – 19 March)
Element: Water Planet: Neptune Symbol: Fish Stone: Bloodstone
Pisces: The festive scene is set for a real sense of family happiness and domestic contentment as well as an array of sparkling social engagements. The Full Moon on Friday may draw your attention to fun and pleasure, but more in the sense of making a conscious effort to create more of it in your life –especially the simple pleasures which cost little or nothing. The question you might be asking this week relates to what you would love to do versus what you feel you ought to do. What’s most important for you to remember as the year draws to a close is to focus on that which gives you a sense of meaning. It is this need for meaning that will shape and form the year ahead into something that makes every new day a pleasure to greet.
