ARIES [Mar 21 - Apr 19]

Your ruler Mars has shifted into watery and elusive Pisces. It's the great unknown reflected in this archetype that tends to create the most fear in souls, yet it is also within this same symbol where the feeling of a higher presence can be felt and found. Mars in Pisces can stimulate your desire to search for understanding beyond this plane of existence and to reach for the invisible help in places where you are bumping up against your own limitations. However, my favorite trend this week falls on Christmas Day, when radical Uranus in your sign connects with perfection to Saturn in fellow fire sign Sagittarius. These two planets finally meet with precise precision, potentially generating a jubilant joy due to the anticipation of some positive change or at the very least energizing an inner faith and hope in the future where there had been little to none. To add further confirmation to this potential feeling, generous Jupiter, the ruler for Sagittarius, is in Libra and will be forming an exact aspect of bountiful ease to loving Venus in Aquarius, promoting a feeling of love and connection, in some cases even in the midst of a storm.

The feeling of gratitude is sure to outshine any fear or hardship, and this week holds the potential for leaving a lasting memory worth savoring!

TAURUS [Apr 20 - May 21]

As I searched to unveil the full strength of this week's energetic promise, I found myself fixed on the energy of Christmas Day, as your ruler Venus will be in perfect harmony with abundant Jupiter. These two planets tend to be the most benevolent in nature, so to combine them in this way is a telling sign for relationships, in particular the potential to be more 'as one' versus 'at odds'. It is a time to let bygones be bygones and an opportunity to open the way for changing tides with the ones you love. In addition, Saturn and Uranus in fire signs Sagittarius and Aries, finally reach an exact aspect of immense support called a trine, an aspect that has not occurred in this way since you have been born. Saturn connects to our commitments in life, the structures that support us moving forward. Uranus symbolizes transformation and an energy that is not interested in the norm or conforming to old patterns and ways. Together these planets find a way to secure change that your Soul needs in order to evolve.

Forgiveness may also be required in order to free yourself this week, so take advantage of this rare celestial force to forge a more abundantly fruitful path forward!

GEMINI [May 22 - Jun 21]

Life on this Earth has been feeling 'heavy duty' and so I search for ways to lighten the load or to help you see something all the way through with a more elevated stride. There is so much good energy to grab onto this week with windows of grace, windows to cherish it full and well, especially on Christmas Day. Your greatest energetic relief occurs in your world of relationships, as Jupiter in fellow air sign Libra, and Venus in your other fellow air sign Aquarius, form angles of unity and peace to one another. There is potential for great growth as a result of some honest exchanges that shoot straight from the heart. There is a purity of intention allowing for the right thing to happen even if it hurts. Saturn is also in your opposite sign, transiting through your house of relationships, and is forming a positively electric angle of support to Uranus, to reflect that direct experience of what this new change will produce. You may be wondering why it took so long for things to reach this stage, but you will be thankful that something finally has.

From this day forward, things can be different, and life has the potential now to positively shift in mind-boggling, sea-changing ways!

CANCER [Jun 22 - Jul 22]

As we enter this holiday week, life as you know it is forced to significantly downshift with Mercury retrograde in Capricorn, due to something re-directing your attention, pulling you away from the minutia and bringing your focus on someone in need. For some, you may be re-thinking all of your connections and re-considering how much of yourself to give and how much to hold back. However, the energy this Christmas Day holds great potential and promise for more meaning with the ones you hold near and dear. Benevolent Jupiter is forming a beautiful angle of generosity to loving Venus, which will have the effect of opening your heart wide and allowing you to see an alternative way through. Saturn and Uranus reach the exact aspect I have been referring to all month, called a trine, where breakthroughs of wild potential are also possibly linked with your life's work. An area where you have expressed long-term persistence is destined now to really pay off. It's as if you have put in your time and expressed care and dedication leading to the sweet grapes ripening on the vine. With action Mars in fellow water sign Pisces, your have greater potential than ever to influence the direction of your life.

A little inner fire lights an awesome flame, roaring and ready to light your way into the New Year!

LEO [Jul 23 - Aug 22]

With the Sun as your bright and fiery ruler, you directly feel the effects as the days shorten and the light lessens. On Wednesday, Dec. 21, winter solstice occurs, a new day is dawning where the sun rebirths itself and prepares to progressively bring more light again into each day. For you Leo, it is also a time to recover more light and shine within you and with Mercury retrograde in Capricorn, a time to reflect upon what you need to give up in order to create space for that desirable change to occur. Tremendous energy also combines and aligns on Christmas Day in ways I cannot ever remember. Truth seeker Jupiter and peacemaker Venus are wonderfully positioned to enhance your communications with friends and loved ones, improving your potential for greater connection and understanding. Also, Saturn in fellow fire sign Sagittarius, will reach its strongest angle yet to Uranus in your other fellow fire sign Aries, revealing clearly the way forward and the changes that need to be implemented to support your vision for the future, in love and with respect to your creative life purpose. The cosmic forces this week in places will radiate a palpable energetic optimism for all that is possible.

When you can feel it Leo, you can do it, and you can have it!

VIRGO [Aug 23 - Sep 22]

There will be no rushing you this week Virgo, your ruler Mercury is retrograde and this will have you thinking long and hard about some of your next steps, knowing serious choices take time and consideration. Also knowing what you do choose could significantly alter how you spend your days in the near, as well as in long term future. Mercury is in fellow earth sign Capricorn, so he is supporting you well and helping you get real with yourself and another. Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, is also transiting your house of the emotional body, in Sagittarius, so your emotions will be speaking volumes about the truth of what your Soul wants and needs at this stage. Saturn forms a brilliant angle of support to Uranus in Aries on Christmas Day which very likely could be a day when a welcomed inner light bulb turns on, injecting you with a surge of confidence in the direction you want to take your life. In addition, Jupiter and Venus partner up in pleasing ways that will go far to fix any old hard feelings. It can also grant you with the feeling that everything is right in the moment, a feeling of being full with that moment, knowing that it will only be a matter of time before that changes, for that is what we call life.

Your intuition will be spot on, so trust in those intuitive spaces and you won't miss a beat. This will undoubtedly open you up to abundantly more!

LIBRA [Sep 23 - Oct 23]

There is nothing that feeds your Soul more than family, community, and connection, and this Christmas Day, your ruler Venus, in your fellow airs sign Aquarius, along with Jupiter in your sign, are just about going to guarantee that you will be at your best, in large part, because your relationships with loved ones are harmonizing well. You will be reminded of what you do have versus that which you don't and this inner experience will occur from comparing your reality with the reality of a majority of the world. It is in this experience where a penetratingly deep gratitude is born. Also, Saturn in Sagittarius, is in your house of communication and is forming an turn-key angle of support to Uranus in Aries, in your house of relationships, suggesting your undying commitment to the growth of your connection with others could produce a radical surge of progress and a positive forward moving momentum. Mercury's retrograde slide in Capricorn will keep you from sugarcoating tendencies while having you honed in on the emotional content that needs to be directly addressed.

Prepare to slip out of some old emotional clothes and then relish the freedom and relief!

SCORPIO [Oct 24 - Nov 21]

It is always most beneficial when tuning into the astrological forces, to lean into your known energetic strengths. It isn't ever enough to bank on what may be in store for you in any given week; there are times when it becomes necessary to partner with the energy at hand, similar to leaning into the curve, which has the effect of keeping you grounded even when traveling at high speeds. Saturn in Sagittarius reaches its exact degree of connection to Uranus in Aries on Christmas Day, granting you entry into a higher operating zone. It can take something known and then naturally merging into a world of the radically unknown, but the trends speak to the power of jettisoning the unwanted past. In addition, your younger brother Mars, the planet of desire, has just entered fellow water sign Pisces and is in a powerful position to help you get what you want, or at least to help you direct your desires in a way that benefits you and the evolution of your Soul. You may effortlessly attract more at this stage and find that some of life is happening with greater ease. Lastly, if that was not enough good fortune for one day, Jupiter and Venus will be harmonizing in holy, heavenly ways to lighten your heart and lift your Spirits.

Keep all of your inner windows and doors ajar in order to maximize the highest return for your Soul!

SAGITTARIUS [Nov 22 - Dec 21]

In an attempt to not over-sell the energetic qualities of this Christmas week, I will speak to the potentialities versus the absolutes. In truth, these astrological influences are never absolutely one thing or another, as they can play out differently depending on each individual Soul. Before I get to the good stuff, it is important to point out that warrior Mars is now in Pisces, in your house of home and the emotional body, which can create a hypersensitivity, where you may be feeling everything in full, and far more than you would like. It may also equal events at home that are in need of expedited repair or a family member in need of your total presence. With that said, the energetic pendulum could swing to extremes for you this week. There will be an enormous amount to celebrate and also some things that put you on the emotional edge. Fortunately, your ruler Jupiter in Libra forms an exquisite angle of grace to Loving Libra, suggesting someone may come to surprise you in heart stretching, Soul freeing ways. Also, Saturn in your sign connects with unparalleled precision to Uranus in fellow fire sign Aries, reaching the exact degree of alignment for a memorable liberating moment, changing the wave of your future.

You are in control of the degree of the charge as well as direction of the change!

CAPRICORN [Dec 22 - Jan 19]

Your ruler Saturn is considered a task master and also the planet that is known for delivering tests. It can be challenging when its influence peaks in your life, but it never leaves without paying you dividends for your efforts and steadfast pursuits. Saturn governs discipline and determination and whenever it is in strong support of another planet, it significantly ups the ante. For the past month I have been preparing readers for Saturn in Sagittarius' gloriously rare aspect to Uranus in Aries and it finally becomes exact on Christmas Day, talk about the gift that keeps on giving. Since Saturn is your ruler, it benefits you boldly, perhaps more than for any other sign. In addition, the sun in Capricorn will form effortless angles of support to the North Node, the symbol for your destiny in the next week, which will have the effect of shining a light on your future. Mars in Pisces helps you take your life up an octave and encourages you not to limit yourself in any way, and Mercury retrograde in your sign makes sure you don't skip any steps. Finally, Jupiter and Venus combine to increase your chances for an improvement in your monetary situation, or perhaps being rewarded in some way for what you bring to life's table.

Whichever the case, you are going to feel deeply valued directly in ways that mean the very most to you, making it all worth it!

AQUARIUS [Jan 20 - Feb 19]

As I shared with your astrological neighbor Capricorn, you too are receiving a highly rare planetary push, as Saturn in fire sign Sagittarius moves into position to gift you with some serious leverage in your life. Saturn and your ruler Uranus in passionate Aries will unite in flight, helping you take the world on by storm. Something that you felt was a shot in the dark in terms of its chances of manifesting, now has a greater probability than ever. All month these forces have been falling in your favor but on Christmas Day, the 'ol key fits the lock. Your ability to be a catalyst for change is off the charts, your capacity to break the chain of old is in your hands. It can all happen with one touch or one word, it can happen with the word 'yes' or the word 'go'. You also have the clever ability to change someone's mind that no one else has ever been successful in doing. You come in through the side door, walk the road never traveled and you win big. This week carries an energy that will set the stage for time to come, with you leading the way. Loving Venus is in your sign and she is making sure your heart profits as well, as she finds Jupiter and together they make some musical magic in the airwaves.

As you raise the roof off of where you have been, you experience a rare and welcomed feeling of memorable abundance, a feeling that initiates within!

PISCES [Feb 19 - Mar 20]

Action Mars is in your sign and in some cases, you will not begin to know what to do with the energy that is coursing through your veins. It may at times feel as if it is too much to hold and to handle, especially as Mars approaches your ruler Neptune just before the New Year. However, other planets are convening to help you harness what you must and to be productive where you can. Note: Mercury will be retrograde until January 8, so make allowances for unexpected turns and setbacks. Fortunately, steady Saturn is in passionate step and harmoniously in sync with Uranus into the next few weeks, the alignment will become exact on Christmas Day. This suggests there is security in the obscure, or in some cases the outlandish, that something you never thought you would agree to has you signing on the dotted line. You will be changed and far better for it, and in no time you will come to positively flourish as a result. Lastly, generous Jupiter and Venus make sweet love in the sky and it has you celebrating this loving feeling, whether it is an energy you escape to in your dreams or simply the feeling that others have gifted you with due to their unconditional presence.

Look beyond the physical, as you naturally do so well, for this is where your true gift of the season awaits!
