Weekly General Horoscopes (Updates on Monday) - 17 December 2018
Starting the week with the Moon in Aries is always an advantage, ensuring your instincts are sharp from the get go and you have an intuitive and imaginative edge and your sixth sense to rely on. Yet this last visit for the year has a huge amount of information to process and valuable clues, hunches and insights to pick up on, that the job of even processing it all has to begin after the Moon leaves on Tuesday. This is the Moon's last visit while Uranus is in retrograde motion here for another eight decades and the last before Mars' return in the New Year. A mix of nostalgia and anticipation help link you to the 20/20 hindsight and foresight you have access to. While the Moon will move on, you'll retain this intuitive edge for as long as you continue to trust your instincts. The Moon leaves you with the ability to read between the lines and join the dots, as not only the year itself draws to a close, but your financial and professional years as well.
This last full week before we move into both Christmas week and the last full week of the year is often the busiest in any year. Regardless of when your professional year ends, this is the point in any year when time both speeds up and becomes compressed, often needing to be in multiple places at the same time. Even if you're not feeling the stress, chances are, wherever you go, from the Mall to driving in traffic, those around you may have short fuses. Yet this year you are largely immune to the worst of this and may even find your own personal Zen midweek. It is the Moon's return to Taurus on Tuesday, for its last visit for the year, that gives you a chance to escape into your imagination and daydreams. This is an offer you normally don't have time to accept, but with Juno in her last full week in retrograde motion in Taurus, the temptation to stay well clear of life's rat race will be too alluring to pass on.
In a week when you're likely to be wearing many hats and there is a lot of focus on your relationships, the Moon's return to Gemini on Friday brings a chance to listen to your own voice. The Moon is coming full circle from last month's Full Moon in Gemini, otherwise known as the 'what about me' Full Moon. As the Moon and Sun clashed, this put your personal and relationship needs into conflict, with a chance to ask 'what about me'? With the Sun not leaving until Saturday, the Moon's return on Friday might bring memories of what came to a head last month. Fortunately, the Sun will leave before they clash here and with Mercury, the planet of communication and your ruling planet in your relationship sector, this is more an opportunity to clear the air. There will be a Full Moon over the weekend, but in your income sector this will be more a catalyst for things still developing across the income, work and career fronts.
Sunday's Full Moon will fall in Cancer, bringing you to the halfway point in your solar year. Always falling at a time of year when the focus is on your relationships and halfway between your last birthday month and the next, this is often a time of year when your own voice is lost. This is the 'what about me' Full Moon that falls at some point during the Sun's month long visit to your relationship sector each year, so sometime in the final 10 days and the first three weeks of each year. There should be a problem with this Full Moon, in that the Sun only returns to your relationship sector on Saturday and the Moon only returns to Cancer 81 minutes before peaking as a Full Moon. Neither you nor your relationships should be ready for this. But support for both you and your relationships has been building for weeks, turning this into a real opportunity for a breakthrough.
With the Moon returning to your career sector on Tuesday, for its last visit for the year and the Sun to your work sector over the weekend, rather than slowing down, your professional year is speeding up. Yet, compared to what is developing on job and career fronts in the early months of 2019, this is still just the warm up. Just in case you were tempted to already buy into the 'all work and no play' mindset, adventurous lunar vibes and playful solar vibes should put paid to that. While the Sun's return to your work sector over the weekend will turn the solar spotlight onto your work situation and job matters, as it does at this time every year, until then he is making the most of his final days in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart. You also start the week with the Moon in an adventurous part of your chart. However, the Moon's return to your career sector on Tuesday will see the pendulum start to swing more towards your professional game.
This is a point in any year when work/life balance becomes an issue and at times a challenge. However, if there is going to be any work/life balance tension, it is likely to be towards the end of the week, when the Moon returns to your career sector on Friday, just as the Sun is spending his last full day in your home and family sector. Yet with the Sun leaving the next day, they won't clash as they did during last month's Full Moon. This could see your professional life or just life, in general, become a lot busier from Friday, but not to the degree of urgency you would expect. With home and family matters remaining important, even after the Sun leaves and with the holiday period coming up, work/life balance is fast becoming something to work towards, rather than a problem to solve. This will become a lot easier when the Sun returns to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on Saturday, just a day after the Moon leaves an adventurous part of your chart.
Starting the week with the Moon in your relationship sector, but without any real challenges, is a sign that things really have moved on. It was just two weeks earlier that Venus became the last planet to leave Libra, meaning the Moon will receive no push back, with a lot less pressure on you and your relationships. It helps that you have Mercury, the planet of communication in his first full week back in your communication sector, so is on hand to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice. In the meantime, your professional year might be winding down, but forces across the income, work and career fronts don't seem to have received the memo. If anything, life is even busier this week, while a Full Moon in your career sector over the weekend is a sign that the professional gods are intent to remain active through the holiday period. Yet because this is a warrior planet of the cosmos you don't have the urgency that can suggest that is it 'now or never'.
While you do start the week with the Moon in your work sector and therefore with a need to have your work hat on from the get go, this is unlikely to be a busy week. Or at least no busier than you would expect at this time of year. Instead, the Moon's last visit for the year is also the last visit while Uranus is in retrograde motion here and before Mars returns to fire things up in the New Year. Even the professional gods will be using this as a chance to reflect and to take the time to hear yourself think. Even with the Sun leaving your income sector over the weekend, there is no urgency there. All that is ending is the Sun's job of shining the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options. With both income and job matters taking off in the New Year, even here this is more about paying attention. Meanwhile, an adventurous Full Moon over the weekend will be an invitation to embrace both the weekend and the holiday spirit.
The Moon that will play a valuable role in the final days of your birthday month, as it tracks through areas of your chart that are set to host major developments over the coming months. This is a mini look into what you can expect from your new solar year and a sense of what kind of journey are you embarking on. The week begins with the Moon in a playful part of your chart, with this last visit for the year also the last before Mars returns to fire things up in the New Year. At the same time, while the Moon's return to your work sector on Tuesday is more a chance to reflect on this year's developments on the job front, with job opportunities exploding in the early months of 2019, this gives you some insight into what you have to look forward to there. Before the week is over, the Moon will also take a deeper dive into your relationships and money matters.
In the lead up to the Sun's return to Capricorn over the weekend and the start of your birthday month and new solar year, this is the point in any year when you are at odds with life's realities. Just as the pre Christmas rush is starting to bite, the final days of an old solar year require time out to hear yourself think, to reflect and to spend time in life's slow lane. Fortunately, you should find that relatively easy, especially as, for the most part the push to bring this professional and financial years to a close is over. Things could get busy on the job front on Friday, less because for many, this may be the last working day of the year and more because the Moon will have come full circle from last month's Full Moon in your work sector. It is the Sun's return to Capricorn on Saturday that will fling the doors open to a powerful new solar year, with a Full Moon on Sunday making sure you're not asleep at the wheel.
Across the income, work and career fronts there is no sign of things slowing down and if anything, things are continuing to speed up. Yet if you look closer, which you have a chance to if you take the time to simply listen every now and then, there is no urgency on either front. The Moon only left your income sector over the weekend and with Mars leaving on Tuesday, this has left you with the nose for money needed to make his final weeks count. Yet Mars' job is to encourage you to fight for what you deserve, with planets staying on to ensure you carry this through into 2019. Even though you will end the year with Venus in your career sector, she too is in no hurry. A Full Moon on the job front will not only invade your weekend, but won't run its course until the Moon leaves on Christmas Day. Yet even here, there are forces that will catch the ball and run with it, will remain in play the whole of 2019 and are in no hurry.
This close to the end of the year, the Moon's final cycle was always going to be important, giving you an intuitive goodbye to all 12 areas of your chart. The areas of your chart the Moon will visit this week are all important, for different reasons. The week begins with the Moon having just left Pisces the day before, allowing you to begin the week with an intuitive edge and with a direct link to your sixth sense. The Moon will begin the week in your income sector, sharpening your nose for money during the Sun's final days in your career sector. This is also a chance to tap into some exciting developments building behind the scenes on the income front as well. Midweek the Moon will focus on communication for the last time this year, creating a chance to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice. The Moon will then go on to focus on home and family matters, before ending the week as a playful and romantically charged Full Moon on Sunday.
