Weekly Horoscope for Dec. 16 – 22
Looking for the previous weekly horoscope?
Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Aries
Jupiter and Mercury, both in Sagittarius, are in beneficial connections (aspects) to the Moon. Establish some of your own connections during this time and enjoy the light and fun atmosphere.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday am: the Moon is in Taurus
Venus in Scorpio is opposite the Moon on the astrological wheel and thereby may lend a helping hand if needed. When the Moon is traveling through Taurus (usually once a month), it is in contact with its exaltation, meaning its highest power. So it may not need any assistance from Venus, but it’s nice to know it’s there anyway.
Thursday pm, Friday, Saturday am: the Moon is in Gemini
Mercury and Jupiter in Sagittarius are located across the astrological wheel from the Moon. Your ‘things to think about’ and ‘things to do’ lists will benefit from these connections. Just dive in and be pleasantly surprised at how many items you can check off.
Saturday pm (Full Moon): the Moon is in Cancer
This weekend calls for a focus on home and family; this could mean being with them in person or being in contact with them. If you remain in your own home, be involved in projects in and around your place. Venus in Scorpio is in an excellent position with the Moon and offers energy for you to make your house nice, lovely, and comfortable.
In reading this weekly horoscope, check your astrology chart to find which house (section of your chart) has the current Moon sign on the cusp (the beginning edge) & apply forecast information to that area of your life as well. For example, the Moon is in Leo and one of the suggestions is to entertain – however Leo is located in the 12th house of your chart, which is an inward energy place…then have a small, quiet gathering. By contrast, if Leo is located in the 1st house of your chart, an outward energy place…have a party! Don’t have an astrology chart? Click here .
It is interesting to note when the current Moon is in the same sign as your birth Moon and to see how the flavor of that day carries through the following 30 days.

Note: Weekly horoscope time frames for Moon signs, void-of-course periods, and current planet & asteroid positions are noted for Eastern time zone (USA). Please adjust according to your own location. Times are not given if the void-of-course Moon occurs for a very short period or if it occurs during the night (based on same Eastern time zone).
▪ v/c = Void-of-Course – When the Moon is void-of-course, spend time working on projects already in progress, creative endeavors, or self-improvement. Void-of-course simply means that no planets are aspecting the Moon as it gets ready to change signs; there won’t be a configuration of astro energy available to utilize. It’s best not to start new projects, sign important agreements, or go shopping when the Moon is void-of-course because the result will probably be unsatisfactory in some way.
∗Mercury Retrograde – the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Communications, paperwork, electronics, traffic and mail can become very mixed-up, delayed, or go on the ‘fritz’ during this time. A situation will be in the process of changing, so wait until Mercury is direct to finalize anything. In general, maintain a slower, more cautious pace in daily affairs. Always allow at least two days before (to slow down) and after (to resume regular activities) a Mercury retrograde period. (Read More about Mercury Retrograde)
