Your Weekly Horoscopes: December 15 to 21, 2019
Ready to make a statement? The week begins with Mercury finally entering Sagittarius on the 9th after spending two months in the murky waters of Scorpio. While Mercury in Scorpio wants us to keep secrets, Mercury in Sagittarius wants us to be extremely blunt. The hot takes have arrived.
The headlining cosmic event is a full moon in Gemini on the night of the 11th. Though most of this month’s astro weather points toward establishing long-term goals, the full moon in our changeable air sign is an opportunity to be a little impulsive. What intentions were set around the new moon in Sagittarius on November 26th? Let’s celebrate our progress, no matter how small.
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that will provide further insight.)
On the 15th, you find a solution to something that’s been messing with your daily routine for months. Finally, you can avoid that annoying traffic circle or get your “bad at email” boss to respond. Despite this, your holiday plans with your family are a hot mess. On the 19th, scheduling a simple dinner or Christmas gift exchange becomes a huge, stressful ordeal. Look to your sister for a brilliant solution. She has a unique way of tying up loose ends.
A creative endeavor you’ve been trying to get off the ground for months finds its footing on the 15th. At last, you’re in the right headspace at the right time. Head to the ceramics studio, write that song or put that poem to paper. Your birthday season begins on the 21st, and it’s finally time to focus on you. Why not finally start that artist salon you’ve been talking about forever? Invite friends over, pop some bubbly and share your creations.
For you, this week is all about stillness and meditation. In fact, on the 15th, you might receive a very clear vision in a dream. As Capricorn season begins on the 21st, you enter your most restful time of the year. Though of course it’s necessary to stay on top of holiday communications and end-of-year work responsibilities, take as much time away from your devices as you can. Unfollow anyone on social media who leaves you…annoyed. This eases your mind and improves your sleep.
There’s a very special opportunity for you to make friends in your community this week, Pisces. On the 15th, you have the time of your life at what you thought would be another run-of-the-mill drinks meet-up at a local bar. Give your neighborhood more credit! You are projecting a lot of yourself into your work these days, but are you letting your actual voice be heard? On the 19th, you may reach a frustrating burnout at the office. Text one of your new friends for advice.
For all of Sagittarius season, you’ve been studying and scheming. Now it’s time to present your findings to the world—whether that’s with a book review on your blog or the tea that was spilled about your sister’s ex’s new girlfriend. Your entrepreneurial spirit is activated on the 15th, so don’t shy away from chatting up your coworker’s hedge-fund boyfriend at the office holiday party. Potential investors are everywhere! Don’t be afraid to talk about money. Your glow-up continues as the sun moves into Capricorn on the 21st. The coming month is the most visible you’ll be all year. Take advantage of the spotlight.
On the 15th, you are in for a transcendental treat. Whether it’s a particularly enlightening yoga class, an A+ on that grueling grad school final or finally figuring out what to bring to your MIL house’s for Hanukkah, there’s a miracle in store. Think outside the box! Things also get beautifully weird at work on the 20th, and it’s up to you to start the party. Why not lead a last-minute White Elephant gift exchange with your team? Spread some quirky holiday cheer.
You have been working so hard this month: thriving at work, planning holiday surprises for nieces and nephews, and staying up late with your boo discussing the existential end-of-year blues. Watch out for the inevitable exhaustion and burnout to hit on the 19th. Remember that even if you feel like you’re screaming into the void Garden State–style, people can hear you. Recover on the 20th by taking yourself to see a string quartet or a foreign film or by simply opting for the top-shelf oolong. Treat yourself like the sophisticated lady you are.
Get out there and volunteer this week, sweet moonchild. The uplifting energy of the Jupiter-Uranus aspect on the 15th pushes you to get involved. Sign up to hand out hot cocoa at the holiday concert, go caroling, organize a last-minute toy drive or pressure everyone you know to come out to a friend’s art show. As the sun enters Capricorn on the 21st, the work you’ve been putting into partnership and commitment this year is finally seen. Hold on tight to the ones you love because, they love you back.
Since March, you’ve been able to majorly upgrade your public image. Whether you got a promotion, switched careers or finally got your Instagram grid looking fly, eyes have been on you. And it has been an adjustment. On the 15th, you have a breakthrough about your workflow that soothes the transition. On the 20th, use your extra brain space to do something loving yet unconventional for a lover or business partner. Show off your eccentricities by passing out the love.
Your husband has a lot of great ideas, but let’s face it, his interior decorating ideas make absolutely no sense. On the 19th, spend the day fixing that feng shui issue in your living room that’s been throwing you off balance all year. Once everything is in place, you’re ready to have guests over for happy hour on the 21st. The coming month is all about pleasure. So now that your couch is in a better position, relax, have some fun and roll out the bar cart.
This week offers a unique opportunity for you to build security through investments when a financial leap of faith you took back in March finally pays off on the 15th. This isn’t just luck; you made a good choice. Let this be a lesson about the value of thinking outside the box. On the 20th, Venus––the planet of love––enters Aquarius and the part of your chart that represents all things pleasurable. Send that romantic/borderline freaky DM to your crush. It’s the start of something weird.
Are you looking for love...in the archives? With a pileup of planets in your nostalgia sector, it’s likely that quite a few blasts from the past have been showing up in your Hinge DMs. On the 15th, one of these dates goes better than expected. Maybe you’ve known your soulmate all along. On the 20th, you get a note from a distant relative that helps soothe your anxiety about visiting family for the holidays. There’s someone out there who really gets you. Maybe even two people.
