Horoscope for the Week beginning Dec. 25
Tip of the week
Christmas this year coincides with the Full Moon in Cancer! When the Moon is in any of the three water signs: Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, emotional levels run deeper and higher too. Out of these three, the Moon in Cancer especially, the sign that it rules, doubles the impact. This is partially true due to the fact that Cancer is an action oriented Cardinal Sign. When the Moon is full in Cancer, the effects are tripled. The Moon enters Cancer at 9:26 p.m. on Christmas Eve where it will remain until December 27 at 2:31 a.m. and the Moon comes to full at 3:11 a.m. on December 25 (all Pacific Time Zone).
On Christmas Eve the Moon squares Jupiter at 9:26 a.m., which lends to exaggerated emotions, extravagance and foolish generosity, so keep that in mind if you happen to be doing any last minute shopping and are on a budget. Fortunately the Moon forms an inspirational trine to Neptune at 10:18 a.m. Christmas morning supporting the hoped for magic to enchant young and old alike. An opposition from the Moon to Pluto at 11:21 p.m., however, warns that pushing the limits late into the night when alcohol and fatigue can blend to awaken malevolent spirits could result in some uninvited disturbances.
Uranus brings its own twist of magic as it turns Direct at 16 Aries 53 at 7:53 p.m. on December 25 after exactly five months of retrograde motion. Uranus is known to synchronize with unexpected and sudden shifts of measurable proportion lending another gentle reminder to exercise caution and restraint especially during the evening. With a loaded square between Mars and Pluto in the New Moon chart this point is further emphasized.
So get ready for an extra emotional Christmas this year everybody. Many blessings for a fun, fulfilling and safe holiday season!

Dec. 25 – 31
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
You are in a somewhat sober mood, despite the festive season. If you do partake in consuming spirits, you could get seriously titillated. Some deep passions are stirring your ambitions, yet the required diplomacy for success may not be so easy to express. Taking action to realize your dreams requires that you have some, so allow time to meditate under the twinkling lights.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)
A bell tolls for you in the distance. With each passing moment the jingle in your ride is a reminder that there is something special inside. Sweet as it sounds it may come with a twist of bitters linked to what you may be leaving behind. Shedding some tears for yesteryear is all part of the game, yet embracing the moment and anticipating what is to be, need not evoke shame. Change is not simply some silver coins.
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
This time of year is often filled with cheer, yet while you may feel fine it is harder to feel the fullness of the spirit this time. With this in mind, however, you could make the effort to dig a little deeper. Direct your attention to others and their joys and sprinkle with extra gratitude for all the good that is. This little recipe is ancient yet still holds the magic to open the heart allowing more love to flow in and out…
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Sending a message to all your relations is at the top of your list. You have much to say and at least as much to learn. Your communications will be filled with purpose and passion. Raising a glass to share a cheer feels extra important this particular year. In the glow of color lit snow a prayer for the faithful includes your name too, I thought you should know.
Leo (July 22 – Aug 23)
You may feel like one of Santa’s overworked elves. In addition to last minute details for this year, orders are already coming in for 2016! Your Christmas wish includes the wisdom to set an even pace and the confidence to win in the creativity race. So you have plenty of work to do but if you take the initiative and set things in motion you will receive extra inspiration to see it through.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Certain aspects in your chart are characterized by this time of year: contractive temperatures vie with expansive spirits. The contraction bit is based on concentrating your focus to confront fears in order to lay claim to latent powers. The expansion part is linked to expressing yourself in future-oriented and innovative ways. Think of Santa squeezing down the chimney emerging from it fully with gifts in tow.
Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22)
Christmas can have the effect of deepening one’s faith in life and hopefully this will prove true for you. Sometimes we need to believe more and think less, like now perhaps. It is not about blind faith so much as it is acknowledging that there exist many levels of power that cannot be empirically perceived. Allow the spirit of innocence as that of a child to remind you of magic and miracles.
Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)
Have you ever wondered what the world might look like if you were perched on Santa’s sled as it sails through the sky? Okay, so you have flown on a plane before, but please play along. Whatever it takes to expand your point of view will suffice. Fresh expressions of love and beauty await your command as the gift of possibilities is unwrapped in your mind.
Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 21)
A bit more calculation than spontaneous leaps of faith afford is the frosting on your window. Jack may be nimble and Jacquelyn may be quick, but the Jackie in you best also draw upon some other tricks. Patience and determination supported by strategy and logic may not sound so magical, yet they are the timeless spell that will reveal the successes you seek.
Is that a cap on your cat or a cat in your cap taking a nap? A process of deciphering what is what, which is which and who is who, that is the task you must do. It might all seem like just a game but it is important all the same. For where do your commitments truly lie, are they solid on the ground or floating in the sky? Beyond just a riddle that annoyingly rhymes, answering it is your destiny and now is the time.
Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 19)
Hiding there within the tree is something for you, something to see. Nestled in among them all is some magic in a green shiny ball. It contains a special kind of strange and a weird kind of wonderful woven with power and potential. It’s not a spell, just a bit of magic that could lead you to an important exit. There is a point of departure from how things are, wishes will be answered and you could travel very far.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Amidst the glitter and the shine that stir imaginations every time, practical considerations are on your mind. Keeping it open mind about what you perceive, what really matters about what you believe? It’s for you to decide what you do, but it needs to have has meaning to be relevant and true. It is not necessarily about having more, it’s just that Mr. Frost as rapping at the door.
