The Last Full Moon Of 2018 Brings Empowerment & Prosperity

Your Weekly Astrology Forecast for December 17–23, 2018

The holiday season shifts from exuberant, generous, party-oriented Sagittarius to taciturn, nose-to-the-grindstone Capricorn on Friday, December 21. This shift from mutable to cardinal signs marks the beginning of a new season: winter. The Moon culminates into a Full Moon on Saturday, the 22nd. As the holidays draw close, there’s a big shift in energy from the glitter and excess of Sagittarius, to the practical, more restrained energy of Capricorn.

Expect Surprises and Disruptions this Week

Get up early Monday and head to the gym for vigorous exercise to energize your workweek. Use the early morning Moon-Pluto square to challenge yourself. A flowing Sun-Moon trine helps smooth out the rough edges of the challenging aspects that bookend the day. The evening may bring a few surprises or disruptions.

A sensual Taurus Moon on Tuesday and Wednesday draws us toward beauty—beautiful sights, sounds, tastes and smells. We want to nourish ourselves with delicious and nutritious food. A benefic Moon-Saturn trine on Tuesday grounds us and helps us lean into our work and get a lot accomplished. A Moon-Juno conjunction on Wednesday fosters connections between those near and dear. Benefic lunar aspects with Neptune, Pluto and Mars amplify the practical, dependable and common-sense energy of the Taurus Moon. We seek ease and comfort—and a bit of luxury.

Thursday sparkles with the gregarious curiosity of the Gemini Moon. A powerful Sun-Uranus trine in fire signs Sagittarius and Aries gives crackling, inventive, adventurous energy, which can burst forth surprises and awakenings.

Welcome the Winter Solstice with the Sun in Capricorn

The Winter Solstice—the darkest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere—is Friday when the Sun moves into Capricorn tropically. The movement of the Sun into cardinal, action-oriented Capricorn marks the beginning of winter. Numerous aspects, both benefic and challenging, make for an active day. A Venus-Neptune trine lifts us above the fray. A Mercury-Jupiter conjunction results in numerous possibilities. Celebrate the Winter Solstice with something uplifting and special.

A Full Moon in Cancer Lights Up the Weekend

Saturday is lit by the light of a Full Moon at 0:49 Capricorn-Cancer. When the Moon is full, there is the greatest light in the sky, and symbolically, in our lives. It’s a good time for manifestation and for important events. This Full Moon is graced by benefic aspects to Uranus, which can bring something unusual or unexpected; the Moon in Cancer fosters compassion and caring. If you have not done so already, Saturday or Sunday would be good days to write your year-end checks to your favorite charities.

As Christmas draws near, Sunday’s cardinal, action-oriented Cancer Moon focuses our attention on home and family. A Grand Water Trine between the Moon (in Cancer), Neptune (in Pisces) and Venus (in Scorpio) gives strong emotional energy as well as vision. A Moon-Pluto opposition fuels emotional energy for things that matter.
