Sorry I missed two weeks, was down with Bronchitis. Happy Holidays everyone, be well!
THIS WEEK’S UPDATE
The Moon enters romantic and social Libra on Sunday the 18th, and continues into Monday. It is a good time to meet up with friends or have a Christmas Party. On Tuesday the 20th, relationship oriented Venus enters networking Aquarius for the next three weeks. It is a good time to meet new friends.
Aquarius is cool but friendly, taking some of the heat out of romance this week. Enjoying new people and experiences without commitment or expectations makes sense and most of us are busy with the Holidays — that usually concerns putting family first. The Capricorn New Moon on Christmas Eve reminds us to consider our ambitions for the future.
You are probably thinking, “glad this year is gone-but it went so fast.” Although there will be some re-visioning and readjustment of your goals in early 2012, I believe 2012 will be even quicker than this past year of 2011—especially when Jupiter moves into Gemini next summer.
So enjoy your Holiday Season and take some time to yourself before it all starts up again. The Winter Solstice (Dec. 21, 9:30 PM PST) shows some minor conflicting energy for the next three months. Could have to do with the Euro, China, and our banks. For the 2012 annual predictions, join our monthly magazine, Psychic Visions Plus.
The Moon represents the next three months, and is in “go deep” Scorpio this week, which is challenging altruistic Neptune. Forgiveness practices would be a good thing to do here, since you do not want to carry old emotions or fears into the year ahead. The Sun and Pluto are also aligned in a challenging relationship to explosive Uranus (and the New Moon on Dec. 24th adds even more energy to the transforming pattern). Be careful on the road, and of sudden, unexpected outbursts, especially in the snowy, winter months.
It would be wise to take some quiet, introspective time to decide what will go with you into the New Year and what will not. Whether it is an end of the year donation to the Goodwill box to get a final tax write off, or an emotional release Solstice ceremony, the end of the year is excellent for personal and quiet release ceremonies. Whatever is preventing you from moving ahead, write it down, release it, burn what you wrote, while looking forward to New Years. On New Years Day take some time to write that which you hope to accomplish and achieve in 2012.
The moon moves into Aries for New Year’s Eve. This is a fiery and passionate energy, and an excellent placement for new Years because it represents the pioneering new beginnings. There are some challenging planetary shifts around 10 PM on New Year’s Eve, so many will celebrate early and be tired and done before midnight.

Week of Dec. 19th – Dec. 25th, 2011

Some wonderful aspects to Venus suggest that you’ll be blessed with gifts that satisfy your heart’s desire. You may even get a windfall. Listen to your intuition and you’ll have even more reason to smile. Make use of the lucky opportunities that come your way, as well as those that encourage you to share your wealth with others. For once you can relax deeply knowing that all is well. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Your Love Week—Air Signs:
The current planetary alignment may create a feeling of conflict within your relationships Air Signs. For some reason you both seem to be misunderstanding each other. There could also be a degree of stubbornness involved in this, as well. You can both stick rigidly to your points of view, but this will not bring you any closer. Only if you are both willing to truly listen, will this matter be resolved. This week encourages you to take up an opportunity concerning your current love relationship. It brings you a chance to discuss, in a perfectly reasonable and calm manner, why you feel things may have gone awry recently, and how you both can work together to put matters back on track. If you approach this conversation with real sincerity, you will be able to create a major transformation. This present astral energy brings you to a point where you realize that talking has really helped you to understand that you are ready to make a deeper commitment to a special person. What this now entails is even more talking, but in such a way that it encourages you both to think about your future and the way your lives together could pan out. This astral energy also enables you to shine – not that you don’t have a certain natural brilliance. But you can sparkle even more brightly by paying attention to others, listening to what they have to say, and really wanting to make them feel good. This will not only work wonders for your popularity ratings, but will probably get you a great date by New Year’s Eve.
The Fire Signs
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Venus moves into Aquarius, highlighting friendship and the possibility of romance. You’re going to have a fabulous week, Fire Signs, surrounded by warmth, plenty of friendship, and love and romance if you’re single. This is one time when you’ll be able to relax and have a real holiday with nothing too challenging to spoil everything. It’s full steam ahead for you, with lots to look forward to. Get any business out of the way on Monday when you’ll be able to concentrate. The rest of the week brings good fortune and plenty of opportunities to enjoy social events, office parties, and the days before Christmas. However, amicable Venus bumps into a stressful aspect with Mars on Thursday that can put your social life on edge. Too much analysis will make any plan sound questionable and undermine the potential for cooperation. Earning respect by taking care of responsibilities may not sound sexy, but is probably the best way for you to operate during the busy holiday week between Christmas and New Year’s. Mercury is now direct, so it’s full steam ahead. No more delays. There’s plenty of opportunity to get organized in time. You may even successfully complete a major goal, too. Beneficial Jupiter turns direct on Christmas Day, so expect the best of everything, with gifts to make you smile.
Your Love Week—Fire Signs: This week’s planetary alignment doesn’t encourage real conversation. Feelings tend to be mixed, which does not make it at all easy to get any consistent message across. If you want to make the best of this occasion, then you could use the time to explain how you feel, even if you can’t help being contradictory. The more fearless you are in expressing yourself, the better. With friends and acquaintances, however, the planetary energy creates a delightful opportunity to really get to know someone on many more levels than you do at the moment. There is a chance to discuss your beliefs and also attitude and outlook on life. You will find that you have a lot in common, and this will encourage you to want to go on and actually do more things together. Be careful now because you may be encouraged to want to take a risk with a certain relationship, yet you to feel very apprehensive about doing so. You’re faced with a fair amount of inner tension, which is something you generally try to avoid. However, on this occasion the conflict is truly creative, and it would be more appropriate to ignore your fears and just go ahead. On Christmas Eve at the New Moon, your loved one seems to be in more of an argumentative mood than usual. It is not so much that they are trying to push you into doing things you don’t want to do, but rather that they are enjoying the whole process of a heated conversation. Don’t you just hate that? Don’t take anything said too personally; just give back as good as you get.
The Water Signs
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
This will be one of the best holiday weeks you’ve had in some time. After all your hard work, you can revel in the festive fun you’re going to have. You’ll be very much in demand, and you may have more events to attend than time to attend them. It’s perfect for a relaxing, enjoyable break. With the holidays well and truly underway, there’s no shortage of parties to attend. But you’re also aware that there are people who aren’t doing as well as you. You want to give something to them, too. You natural compassion shines through. It may be when you attend spiritual or religious events that you meet someone very special who makes your heart beat a little faster. Finally, all of the year’s challenges and delays fall away. Even the shopping and organizing you have to do will be a pleasure. You may be doing a lot of entertaining, which will bring some warm and wonderful encounters your way. Saturday’s earthy Capricorn New Moon sprouts seeds of social possibility with relationships. But fresh experiences with your current partner or meeting someone for the first time can be filled with complications. Provocative Pluto and chaotic Uranus make stressful contacts to the Sun-Moon conjunction in Capricorn, prompting power struggles and irrational behavior. It’s best to avoid taking anyone too seriously now, including yourself.
Your Love Week—Water Signs
You may be wondering whether it is wise to let your latest lover in on a certain secret that you have been harboring. You are not entirely sure how far you can trust this person at this stage. The current alignment of the planets highlights your sense of conflict, but also reveals that perhaps it is best to keep quiet until you feel the time is right. Don’t hide yourself away under a mountain of work, as this will not really help matters. The current planetary configuration encourages you to get out and to face up to someone about whom you may have been having one or two misgivings. Rather than make matters worse, this can only improve the situation, and will ultimately create a much deeper and stronger bond between you. If you are going to get to the heart of the matter between you and your beloved, you are going to need to expand your frame of reference. The present energy encourages discussion that helps you both see how you have been limiting the scope of your relationship, and opens the way for you both to go beyond petty details into a more expansive and exciting realm. Your brain is really working overtime. The difficulty is that what you want and what you think you want are two different things. You may have seduced yourself into believing that you know where a certain relationship is going. But in actual fact, if you let go of the reins for a while you could discover it turns out even better. Relax, let it all flow, and know that it’s all good!
The Earth Signs
Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn
Mars in Virgo brings out the best in you, Earth Signs, and gives you the courage to step into the unknown. Don’t stick with the tried and trusted. This week it’s time to expand and embrace some big thinking, even if you have no idea if you’re going to succeed. This holiday week is extra special. It brings good fortune and plenty of opportunity, as well as a chance to relax when you have time. You’re in the flow and all your hard work begins to pay off. Monday is great for getting organized, especially where work and business are concerned. Do this early. The week then slows down and becomes more relaxed. Even if you have meetings or appointments, it may seem like your vacation has already started. Office parties will be entertaining, with lots of opportunities to get up close and personal with your favorite co-worker. Get ready for a highly unusual holiday weekend that can pull you between your strong sense of duty and a desire to get away from it all. The New Moon in Capricorn, on Saturday is agitated by potent Pluto and revolutionary Uranus, triggering rebellious feelings and sudden surprises. Keep your options open and your obligations limited so you have some freedom to alter your plans as your mood or circumstances dictate. Just know that Christmas Day brings good fortune your way so enjoy the mistletoe.
Your Love Week—Earth Signs: Don’t let this week end with bad feelings about someone who is particularly special to you. The current position of the planets may encourage a sense of conflict, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, unless you are always trying to avoid it. The disagreements that you have may actually take your relationship to a more powerful level, if they are handled properly. Be kind to each other. Don’t expect to get away lightly with a certain discussion that needs to be held now. You need to keep up with all that your loved one is proposing. This is a wonderful chance to move to new levels within the relationship, but it does mean that you need to be open to anything and everything, rather than merely wanting what you want. It may not be easy to convey to a certain special someone just how much you care. The current planetary alignment creates a state of conflict, so that even though you think you are saying one thing, your loved one may understand your words in a different way. Perhaps the only solution is to show how much you love them without resorting to speech. It is not so much that you shy away from romance or real passion, but often that you just don’t trust either yourself or the other person enough to keep the relationship going. The present energy offers a chance to get to know someone special a little more deeply by discussing some deep and pertinent issues with them. By listening very carefully to their response, you will have an answer to your doubts.
