Your Weekly Horoscopes: December 4 to 10, 2022
Grab your Kleenex because the full moon in Gemini on the 7th is an emotional one. Though it feels necessary to forge ahead through the overwhelm, what’s coming up isn’t actually urgent. It’s OK to take a pause. Sit with the discomfort and see what it reveals instead. Gemini tends to over communicate so not every detail coming to the surface is worth exploring long term. To keep us grounded, Mercury and Venus both move from wildcard Sagittarius to goal-oriented Capricorn on the 6th and 9th respectively. This combination keeps us on track even if it’s a long road. Think: the work ethic and seemingly endless artistic output of Dolly Parton who was born with both Mercury and Venus in the sea goat’s sign. Great work takes time.
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Communication meltdowns both at work and with your family peak at the full moon in Gemini on the 7th. Though you’ve made huge strides in therapy when it comes to managing your anger and sitting with vulnerability, this week makes you feel like you’re back at square one. Remember: The goal is progress not perfection. Sit with your feelings and you might be surprised how quickly you recover.
This week’s mantra: “I can sit with hard feelings.”
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Insecurities around money, income and not having enough run high as the full moon in Gemini lights up your financial sector on the 7th. You’ve been living in a bit of a fantasy about what you can and can’t afford, and now’s the time to get realistic about your budget. Focusing on the big picture and your long-term goals helps keep your spending in check.
This week’s mantra: “I choose simple pleasures.”
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You’ve been dealing with inflammation for weeks so when the full moon in Gemini on the 7th brings yet another flare, you’re ready to go to a specialist to find a solution. As much as you want to push ahead right now, relief comes when you let yourself stop and rest. Netflix and chill for the week, and let someone else take care of you.
This week’s mantra: “I know that healing takes time.”
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Anxieties that have been building all season long peak at the full moon in Gemini on the 7th, which highlights your unconscious sector. It feels like everything that could possibly go wrong is going wrong right now, but remember: this isn’t the whole story. Talking it out with loved ones reminds you that you’re not the only one struggling and you’re definitely not alone.
This week’s mantra: “I remember that everything is temporary.”
Leo (July 23 - Aug 22)
What was meant to be a low-key holiday party with your coworkers turns into an all out rager at the full moon in Gemini on the 7th. Unfortunately, you can’t bounce back from a hangover like you used to and the rest of the week is packed with work. Don’t beat yourself up if you end up sneaking into the conference room for a quick nap between meetings. It happens to the best of us!
This week’s mantra: “I appreciate both my highs and my lows.”
Virgo (August 23 - September 23)
The full moon in Gemini on the 7th brings a breakthrough moment for your career that also comes with quite a bit of stress. You wanted this promotion, but now you have so many more obligations at work. Relief comes through setting hard boundaries for when you are and aren’t on the clock. Take time to relax and do some holiday crafts with your kids! Go on a date! When you check out of work, really check out.
This week’s mantra: “I have quality time with myself.”
Libra (September 23 - October 21)
The full moon in Gemini on the 7th falls in your travel and higher learning sector. Though there’s so much to be excited about in your life, you’re mostly feeling distressed and overwhelmed about all the things you’re not doing. You don’t have to fly to Europe every time you want to experience culture, you just have to be more conscientious about integrating learning and art into your daily life.
This week’s mantra: “I live a beautiful life.”
Scorpio (October 22 - November 21)
The full moon in Gemini on the 7th falls in your debt sector so take a deep breath before checking your credit card statements. Though some of your financial problems may seem insurmountable, most have a much quicker fix than you realize. The first step is to make a list and prioritize what needs to be handled now vs. what can wait. Start sending those emails and get those invoices paid.
This week’s mantra: “I can do hard things.”
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
If there’s anything you’ve been hiding from your partner, it comes to light at the full moon in Gemini on the 7th. Relationships are not a destination but a journey, and in order to grow together, you need to commit to being fully honest. The first step is making sure that you’re on the same page when it comes to your values, otherwise this crossroads could lead to the romance’s end.
This week’s mantra: “I value honesty.”
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
The full moon in Gemini on the 7th falls in your daily grind sector and is likely the most exhausting day of your entire year. Errands need to be run, deadlines need to be met, and even your pets have to attend holiday parties at doggy daycare. Once Venus enters your sign on the 9th, treat yourself to a manicure, facial or new outfit so that you can at least look fabulous while you’re running all over town!
This week’s mantra: “I handle hurdles with grace.”
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
The full moon in Gemini on the 7th lights up your pleasure sector. If you’ve been all work and no play this year, this lunation inspires you to get a bit rowdy. But following your desires can be overwhelming. Dating apps feel like a landmine! Even a simple television binge feels complicated—where do you begin when you want to enjoy it all? Ground yourself through choosing whatever reduces chaos and brings peace.
This week’s mantra: “I get wild when I want.”
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Conflicts and tensions that have been building with your family, roommate or landlord peak at the full moon in Gemini on the 7th. Though this is a low point for ongoing drama at home, the good news is that things can only get better from here! Engaging in some wholesome holiday fun with friends over the weekend (when’s the last time you went caroling? or made a gingerbread house?) lifts your spirits.
This week’s mantra: “I can survive difficult dynamics.”
