Your Weekly Astrology Forecast December 15-22

There is tremendous positive energy this week. Strong alignments offer great potential for ardent, creative, and transformative expression. Saturn is closing in on Pluto, only two degrees away, growing toward their first exact powerful conjunction on January 12th. Jupiter, Venus, Ceres, and the South Node are in Capricorn as well, and the Sun will join the sober gathering on December 21st/22nd, the Winter Solstice. Mars in Scorpio is ambitious, focused, and driven, and much can be accomplished while it is in this sign through January 3rd. There is an annular Solar Eclipse on December 25th. Uranus and Jupiter are in trine aspect in earth signs, innovative energy for practical change. Mars and Neptune are trine in water signs, heightening intuition, compassion, and determination.

energetic days to be super-productive before the holidays 

In the light of a fiery, playful Leo Moon, roll out of bed early on Monday and get some vigorous exercise. Work that Moon-Mars square through physical movement; otherwise it could manifest in frustration and heated emotion. At 2:10 p.m. PST the Moon becomes void of course, so then focus on routine tasks.

Tuesday and Wednesday the Moon is in mutable earth Virgo, the zodiac sign and the time of the month to put your life in order. In preparation for the holidays, the planetary alignments these days will help you get a lot accomplished—quickly and efficiently. On Tuesday the Virgo Moon forms a Grand Earth Trine with Jupiter in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. This Grand Trine is a fortunate, expansive and innovative, especially welcome in the face of the coming Solar Eclipse and the closing Saturn-Pluto conjunction. Make the most of it.

Wednesday holds super-productive cosmic alignments. An early morning Moon-Mars sextile calls us to vigorous exercise. Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn make a benefic trine to the Virgo Moon. We can get a lot accomplished—maybe even move a mountain. Use the great energy of this day to help you prepare well for the coming holidays.

focus on responsibilities and ask big questions

Mars makes a benefic sextile to Saturn on Thursday, calling us to focus on our responsibilities and get things accomplished. On the other hand, a Mercury-Neptune square makes us dreamy and unfocused. Blending these energies, we are invited to focus on work duties during the day and later, in the evening, relax and watch a movie.

Friday bears the alignment of the Moon in its angular weekly aspect to Saturn and Pluto. This aspect bears emotional intensity. What in your life calls out for big change? The Moon is in Libra, and wants to be with others, especially the beloved or close friends. Make it a social evening in a beautiful setting.

an emotionally intense saturday, and an active sunday 

The Winter Solstice arrives on Saturday evening, December 21st, as the Sun moves into Capricorn tropically. The Moon moves into the deep, dark waters of Scorpio, and forms a tense T-square with Venus and Uranus. This could be an emotionally intense day, including perhaps some feeling of jealousy. Try to take this day easy. and give yourself a lot of emotional space. When the Moon is in Scorpio, we need some solitude.

Sunday, Hanukkah, is an extremely active day in the cosmos with numerous planetary aspects. Venus-square-Uranus most likely will result in something surprising! Mars makes a benefic sextile to Pluto, good for getting a lot accomplished. There may be a lot on your “to do” list this last weekend day before Christmas. If so, take advantage of the strong energy: lean in, and you can accomplish miracles.

The Week in Short:

Monday: Energetic start, and then after 2:10 p.m. focus on routine tasks.
