The Center for the New Age is pleased to present your Free Weekly Horoscope for December 22-28, 2019
Mars in Scorpio sextile Pluto in Capricorn (December 22 – January 4, 2020) is a superb time to take up activities with people who are older or younger. This is also potentially a very good time to reconcile differences. Mars sextile Pluto is busy stirring up action around heavy issues that create fateful transformation. This aspect brings opportunity, optimism, and the strength to face otherwise tense situations and predicaments.
New Moon in Capricorn on December 26 brings down-to-earth determination to our moods. This Moon brings a powerful defiance in the face of adversity, and we must not let dark feelings affect our senses of pragmatism and dignity. Go easy on people and use your protective emotional shields to combat the harsh attitudes of others.
Mercury enters Capricorn (December 28 – January 16, 2020). During the next three weeks, we express our ideas with seriousness and maturity. We are likely to favor silence, solitude and hard work. It’s an excellent time to make plans for the future, further ambitions and study masters of the past.
Free Weekly Horoscope for your Sign
Aries: It’s not just about what you can achieve in the world; it’s also about where you want to go in general. It could be that a door opens, inviting you to experience something completely new. If that’s the case, you’d be well advised to step through it. You certainly need to let something go from the past since the solar eclipse in the dying hours of Christmas Day and into December 26 signifies an ending of sorts and the possibility of a new chapter beginning. Use the final week of the year to really think about where you want to go, because for now it seems anything is possible.
Taurus: Basically, whatever you believe becomes your reality, so you need to weed out any thought patterns, habits and beliefs that have held you back. The best and easiest time to do this will be around the solar eclipse on December 25 and 26. Enjoy the festivities by all means, but find some quiet time to contemplate your place in the world, identify what gives you meaning, and let go of any outdated beliefs that feel restrictive. If you can keep in mind that your quest is to liberate yourself from any prison of your own making – which includes being a victim, lacking confidence, or having rigid thoughts of how things should be – then you will be on the right path and ready to unlock the door to a much brighter and more fulfilling existence.
Gemini: It would seem that you’ve had enough of the heavy stuff during the past few years, and December marks the beginning of a lighter time, particularly around December 25 and 26 when a solar eclipse invites you to begin the moving-on process. In fact, the end of the year is a perfect time to begin your shedding and cleansing process. No matter what is going as the year draws to a close, the following quote by Lao Tzu should prove helpful: “Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
Cancer: A solar eclipse on December 25 and 26 really changes things. This is when you get to say goodbye to a problematic partnership or begin a new and happier one. Or it might be that the eclipse (with Jupiter’s help) enables you to work through a problem and renew a relationship that is still worthwhile. There are many permutations, but if you remember that the purpose of your life now is to learn by dealing with others, you won’t go wrong. And what better time than Christmas to practice the spirit of giving, which, in a nutshell, is probably the answer to any relationship dilemma.
Leo: Jupiter’s arrival, followed by the solar eclipse on December 25 and 26, signals the need to live a simpler life – one that’s better for your mind, body and spirit. As the year draws to a close, it might be time to make some changes that probably involve dropping a few commitments and doing less so that you can be more. The New Moon on the 26th suggests that artistic and inspirational activities may be in the works for you. They will lead to powerful and eloquent qualities. And not to be disconcerted, but a strange gift of prophecy/second sight might be yours too. How amazing would that be!
Virgo: The solar eclipse occurs in your creativity and self-expression zone, adding to the weight of energy in this area but also making it easy for you to release all that isn’t you. In some ways, Christmas could potentially be a little tricky, because your need to be true to yourself and honor what feels right could be at odds with other people’s expectations. You might need to find a balance here, but keep in mind as you head into the new year that this growing need to walk your own path and be your own person isn’t going away. That’s a good thing, because the more you can be yourself, the happier and more joyful you’ll be.
Libra: Watch out for opportunities to benefit from the generosity of those around you. All this bodes well for a happy Christmas, but be mindful that the solar eclipse on December 25 and 26, aside from bringing new beginnings, asks you to once and for all let go of the past. If you feel that you need to move on or you’ve been dragging the past around with you for too long, the back end of the year will be the perfect time to say goodbye to it all. Then you can really begin to move forward with a spring in your step.
Scorpio: If you’re feeling isolated in any way, even with people around you, this week will see you come out of your shell and back into the world. As a result, now is a perfect time to get in touch with people, including friends, relatives and neighbors. Getting out and about and accepting whatever invitations come your way will enable you to meet new people and remember that life is for living. If you need any further help to create a positive attitude, the solar eclipse on December 25 and 26 will enable you to get rid of any negative thinking or any restrictive beliefs that have been holding you back, all of which should put you in a great starting position for the year ahead.
Sagittarius: Much of Pluto’s and Saturn’s job during the past year or two hasn’t been to restrict you in the material sense but to get you to see that you can either manage perfectly well with less or there are more enjoyable ways of living and working. Be willing, especially around December 25 and 26 when the solar eclipse occurs in your zone of money and material existence, to let go of what you’ve been doing so that something new and more meaningful can take its place.
Capricorn: Be willing, especially this week when a solar eclipse occurs in your sign, to let go of all that has been so that you can begin to shape a new life that will be much better for you. The New Moon in Capricorn encourages you to using the right contacts and maybe even secret connections to achieve your objectives. Be ready to embrace opportunities for change, and pay attention to your feelings around the eclipse in the waning days of the year. They will point you in the right direction.
Aquarius: When the solar eclipse occurs on December 25 and 26, that is the time to let go of the past, close the door on an old situation, and drop whatever has been weighing you down. You may feel a little strange this week, because the desire to party and be sociable might dessert you in favor of a quieter, more contemplative festive season. At the very least, you will maneuver and negotiate so that you can retreat somewhat. Projects started at the beginning of the year are happily concluded and personal affairs come full circle. You can just relax and enjoy.
Pisces: You might feel compelled to let something go in your life. Maybe it’s time to step down from a responsibility and let someone else take over. The New Moon will help you to maneuver and negotiate. Perhaps a group no longer inspires you, and it’s time to find a new interest. Maybe it’s time to seek out new friends and people who share your vision of the future. All this peaks around December 25 and 26 when the solar eclipse draws a line under the past and urges you to turn your focus to the future. Here’s the big question to ask as the year draws to a close: “What can I do to make a difference in a way that calls to my heart and soul?”
