Aries (March 21st - April 20th)
Thought followed by action occurs in all areas of your life this week, Aries. Your forecast sounds a bit broad, but the full moon in Gemini and total eclipse activate broad houses for you concerning thinking, teaching, selling, writing, and traveling. Other planets are keeping you busy with relationship and your career, too. As the moon moves through houses of your chart this week, it is forming multiple aspects with planets in houses opposite the transiting moon, so you do have a full platter. Literally anything and everything may require your attention. Not surprising, since it is a holiday week and you are likely to be doing more, seeing more people, and traveling to more places as a result. The mental stimulation and shifts the moon produces may have the greatest long-term effect on your work and career, but please read the Libra horoscope for more insight.
Taurus (April 21st - May 20th)
Personal values, money, investments, insurance, inheritance, or anything financial that looks toward the future are the important areas activated by the full moon and eclipse energy in the sign of Gemini for you, Taurus. A step toward greater responsibility and maturity with the intention of building wealth quickly is possible. The next area of your chart that is activated by the transiting moon will put you in touch with advisors who can help you attain your financial goals. Travel to visit family for the holidays is likely for many Bulls. Romance is heating up and turning serious. I think there will be a number of you giving or receiving a proposal of marriage and flashing an engagement ring this Christmas. Male and female Taureans both love precious metals and fine stones and I hope Santa remembers that well-known fact!
Gemini (May 21st - June 21st)
This full moon and eclipse falls in the last degree of your sign, Gemini. I can’t think of Gemini without picturing a butterfly. This eclipse is so potent for you – are you ready to stretch those butterfly wings of yours? The opposing transiting sun in your 7th house of relationship indicates you may be poised at the edge of new ways of being who you are within relationship. Perhaps you are beginning a new relationship, changing something within an existing partnership, or maybe you are simply opening your heart to a greater love. A shift in your relationship status can bring serious matters up for discussion surrounding personal values, money, and family life. Gemini alone rarely thinks of words like power or control, but now that you have a mirror and polarity in your life at the same time that the sun cozies up to Pluto and Mars in your 8th house of Deep Stuff, some of your focus this week is on personal power and control.
Cancer (June 22nd - July 22nd)
A revealing of secrets, patterns of behavior, and hidden beliefs and how they affect your health, work, and spiritual view of life is both unsettling and cathartic, Cancer. The full moon and eclipse energy activate your 12th house of the subconscious and spirituality and the opposing 6th house of health, work, and service. I see an image of a sledgehammer breaking through a brick wall you weren’t aware of until now. Now you will be scoping out what has been lying beyond that wall as the week brings a new cycle for you. Changes you make within yourself have a distinct effect on home, family, and relationships, with special emphasis on relationship. If you have a partner or are dating someone, it looks like you will be having some intense discussions. The planets indicate the partnership itself may be a bigger force than both of you are individually and you, or your mate, have a vested interest in how you function together or appear to others. There is an overtone of money and business tied into the relationship arena, which makes it an even more intense time for Crabs who work with a mate.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
This full moon and eclipse is rather gentle to you, Leo. It activates your 11th house of friends, groups, organizations, and wish fulfillment, Leo. By opposition, it also brings attention to the 5th house of creativity, children, romance, and luck. There is a potential for taking something that is simply a hobby or pleasurable pursuit and making it into something bigger. You may also be examining your feelings surrounding a friendship or romance and the lunar energy will help you see your heart’s true desire and what course to take. The remainder of the week can bring some deep contemplation about life work, soul purpose, and whether or not you are presently engaged in true and meaningful work. Some Lions will be looking to make changes in work or health in the weeks to come. Christmas Eve has you glowing with the joy of the season as you reach out to connect with friends and family.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Your career and home houses in your chart are stimulated by the full moon and eclipse this week, Virgo. They can also represent parental issues, your psychological foundations, and your relationship to the outer world and authorities. If you have had issues with any of these things, the lunar energy can bring them to a crisis point where decisions are made. Planets transiting other parts of your chart for the rest of the week indicate you may be intensely focused on your creativity or romantic desires. A hobby or passion that you share or teach to a group can be a means of income for you, if you so choose. On Christmas Eve, you may feel the urge to be left alone so you can meditate quietly on life and connect with the heartbeat of the collective on a night that has a strong vibration of peace. On Christmas day, you are revitalized and prepared to be social again. Although you may visit or entertain more out of a sense of duty and tradition, you will still enjoy the day.
Libra (September 23rd - October 23rd)
Does it feel like it’s time to travel, relocate, or return to school, Libra? The full moon and eclipse are stimulating your 9th and 3rd houses of your chart, which will boost your desire to be active and see new things or expand your mind. If you are a writer, this can usher in a powerful time for your career, but you must apply yourself. The mutable energy of this lunation can bring opportunity, but you must apply the elbow grease. With Mars, the planet of action, and Pluto, planet of transformation, in your house of home, a relocation of home or having to move to advance your career is highly probable. Those same planets also set the scene for family drama at the holidays. As the moon moves through your week, it arrives by the end of the week in the “closet” of your soul, where you clean out painful things from the past and open to healing moments with family members in the present.
Scorpio (October 24th - November 21st)
Finances and personal values are a sensitive area for you as the full moon and total eclipse stir up emotions in the 8th and 2nd houses of your chart, Scorpio. The 2nd house pertains to money and personal values, but the 8th goes much, much deeper into areas where you are likely to hold strong opinions. Sex, death, taxes, insurance, investments, inheritances, business partnerships, and metaphysics are all 8th house concerns and Scorpio, as natural ruler of that house, understands these subjects better than most. The lunar energy will ask you to look at how you may be taking things too lightly and how you can behave in a more mature and responsible way. Immediately following the full moon, you may be seeking advice or having conversations that get right to the heart of the matter, especially if you share finances with a romantic or business partner. It appears some Scorpios may work extra hours this week so that other people can have time off. As usual, your expressions of love and caring are often through quiet demonstration rather than words.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Connecting with a partner or hidden aspects of yourself are what the full moon and total eclipse are asking of you as your 7th house of marriage, partnership, and hidden self is energized, Sagittarius. The 1st house of self gets a nudge, too. One special person, or the urge to find a significant other, could be keeping you on your toes. As the moon moves further into your chart, intimacy, union, and the dissolving of personal boundaries can occur with that person, followed by conversations where you share your deepest dreams and ideals. Like your fellow fire sign of Aries, most of your chart gets stimulated by the planets this week, giving you plenty to do and think about. If the opportunity to work and make extra money presents itself over Christmas, you may take it. With energy affecting your houses of friends, brothers, sisters, home, and family, I know you can balance the holiday socializing with a work schedule, if necessary.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
Spiritual, emotional, and physical health; life purpose; and right livelihood are the issues that the full moon and eclipse are requiring you to address, Capricorn. Please take the time to slow down and care for yourself. Allow yourself a day of rest and retreat on Monday, if possible. The other planets are giving you a whole lot of potent energy to use now, but you are burning it up quickly because you feel so driven. Business and work are taking the most of that drive, but you can never say no to friends, family, or a partner when they ask you to help them or be there for them. Your reliable presence and stoic loyalty can be putting a strain on your energy reserves and, secretly, you would like a little quiet alone time, but you may be afraid to say so. When people ask you what you want this holiday, why not suggest they get you a spa day or massage? It is just what your body and soul need now.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Deeper insights to your full moon and eclipse revelations can be found by reading the Leo horoscope this week, too, Aquarius. Children, romance, and creativity are your key interests now, but the bigger areas of friends, groups, organizations, and wish fulfillment are in focus, too. In one way or another, all your concerns this week are for others and you will be spending little time idle or alone, which is unusual for independent Aquarius. Your heart may be a bit cool and detached when it comes to individuals, but like the Grinch, whose heart was expanded by the spirit of Christmas, you get caught up by the wave of love this holiday brings and your true kindness shows. Your days pass quickly this week when you are busy being of service to others and sharing good cheer, gratitude, and positive thoughts for the New Year.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Keep chipping away at it, Pisces. The full moon and eclipse may trigger an identity crisis or wavering in your course as it activates your 4th house of home and psychological foundations and your 10th house of career. The Virgo horoscope may give you some insight, too. Overall, the planets are telling you to be more of your inner essence, be true to yourself and you will be loved and supported by your peers. I think some of you may have begun businesses of your own or branched into new work over the last few months and this lunar activity can be a make-or-break time for you in terms of your future success. Spend some time looking back on your family dynamics and what belief programs you may have picked up from your parents about work, career, and success. Past programs may be the thing keeping you from moving ahead and now is the time to imagine things in an entirely different way – the way you want them to be! It appears your holiday will be spent enjoyably with a mate and/or a gathering of close friends or possibly being of service to people in need.
