Cancer / Leo / Virgo
Saturday: When the moon, our inward sense of self, emotions and psyche is full in watery Pisces our sense of introspection, imagination, sensitivity and intuition are enhanced. We process and gestate our dreams.
Sunday: Do you need to be diplomatic? Nurture romance? Create? Choose supportive Moon/Venus aspects. They warm our hearts and add sociability, cuddliness, compassion, creativity and good taste.
Monday: Do you need to work out? Take a stand? Get physical? Supportive Moon/Mars aspects give us strength, protectiveness, help us lift rocks, spark passion, establish clear boundaries.
Tuesday: Do you need to think? Talk? Travel? Choose a good relationship or aspect between Mercury and the Moon. They loan us speed and consciousness, the ability to think things through, help us bring our minds to any problem and find an answer.
Challenging Moon/Venus aspects can bring social awkwardness, hot or cold emotions, longing, questionable aesthetics. Cure: perform a random act of kindness, diplomacy, art therapy.
Thursday: Challenging Moon/Mercury aspects bring a tendency to get lost in the mind and inspire glitches in all things Mercurial; we can get more edgy, irritable, anxious, scattered, diffused, glib. Cure for Moon/Mercury discomfort: Reconnect mind and heart.
Do you need to be diplomatic? Nurture romance? Create? Choose supportive Moon/Venus aspects. They warm our hearts and add sociability, cuddliness, compassion, creativity and good taste.

excerpt by Heather Roan Robbins—Visit our Astology Connection page for the complete daily predictions for the week and an overview of the Year for the current SunSign.. . . a potentially lovely, contemplative winter holiday season . . . In the foreground the planets offer warmth and deep feelings with a little holiday magic . . . In the background the planets are working on a long-term challenging restructuring of security and authority systems . . .push us towards safe and meaningful work. We can let these ongoing pressures ruin our holiday or let it make any sweet moments and deep feeling become all the more precious.
Winter begins as the Sun enters Capricorn. . . the Sun appears to stand still today, marking a moment for us to listen deeply in the quiet dark, and will appear to stand still for three days; the days begin to grow incrementally longer on Christmas Eve and every day thereafter as we welcome the return of the Sun and all the winter holidays that gather around this moment. Mercury conjuncts celebratory Jupiter in Sagittarius and encourages an international taste to our solstice celebrations.
Our beloveds may need time alone and we may all flicker in and out of connection throughout the holidays as Venus remains in introspective and private Scorpio, and Mars in sensitive Pisces. The usual social rituals could feel less important this year, but quiet spiritual ones run very deep. Depression may waft in and out, but usually shifts with some sunlight, a quiet moment to honor our memories, and a chance to count our blessings. Deeper concerns about the World’s conditions simmers in the back ground and brews some powerful New Year’s resolutions ahead.
