Your Weekly Horoscopes: November 29 to December 5, 2020
December is here! We’ve made it to the final month of 2020, and this week starts it off with a bang. On the 30th, there’s a lunar eclipse—a super potent full moon—in Gemini. Lunar eclipses bring unexpected endings and cathartic closure. With this eclipse in ever-curious Gemini, secrets are revealed, and we can’t help but gossip it all out. Then on the 1st, we continue to dish the dirt as Mercury enters wild child Sagittarius where the communication planet completely loses its filter—but never loses its cool. Mercury in the archer’s sign brings out our most egregious email typos and our most awkward texting faux pas. But there’s also so much to laugh about. Let’s enjoy it. Finally, on the 5th, sweet Venus connects with hazy Neptune, amping up the romance and the drama. Things are likely not as they seem, but we might as well get lost in the moment.
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that will provide further insight.)
The lunar eclipse on the 30th brings tensions that have been building with your partner ––whether that’s your hubby, your work wife or your business manager–– to the surface. It could also bring a confrontation with one of your major rivals at work or at school. You’ve let yourself be defined by this relationship but is the other person even who you thought they were? With Mercury entering your sign on the 1st, the ball is in your court and you can express yourself clearly and thoroughly. Use all the words you need––we all know brevity is not your style! Say it now or forever hold your peace.
This week’s mantra: Express yourself before you wreck yourself.
You’re launching a very ambitious project and the workload is stressing you out. The lunar eclipse on the 30th falls in your daily grind sector and throws yet another wrench in details you meticulously planned.

This week’s mantra: The skill is knowing when to ask for help.
Things might get sexy this week with the lunar eclipse lighting up your romance sector. Have you been getting ghosted on the apps? Playing phone tag with a hookup? Or losing the spark in a long-term relationship? On the 30th when the moon is full, your lack of chemistry is illuminated so you can make a plan to fix it or move along. With Mercury moving into Sagittarius on the 1st, you’re also more willing to ask your friends for advice. You don’t always have to be the cool one. Put your cards on the table.
This week’s mantra: Say what you want, and you’ll get it.
