December 18-24 astrology you can plan with
The astrology shaping your weekly horoscopes for Monday to Sunday, December 18-24.
Tuesday’s Pisces quarter moon has manifesting powers
Coincidence or divine intervention? With Tuesday’s Pisces quarter moon, manifesting powers will be dialed up to 11. While it’s great to be smart and self-reliant, remember that the universe WANTS to support your desires. Are you allowing that to happen? Look at where you might be inadvertently blocking miracles or ignoring key signals. That includes your gut feelings, especially if you suspect someone’s intentions could be less than noble. Interrogating them might not yield much, but paying attention to their body language and reading their energy could reveal which side they’re really on.
Mood swing alert on Thursday with a Venus-Uranus opposition
Strong emotions might erupt like molten lava under Thursday’s explosive and unpredictable face-off of romantic Venus and volatile Uranus. Try not to interact with someone who’s behaving like a ticking time bomb. Feeling the urge for more freedom? Don’t ASK for it, just do what’s in your heart. But avoid making rash moves since this energy will dissipate as quickly as it flares up. With controlling Venus in Scorpio at loggerheads with bombastic Uranus in Taurus, try not to interact with someone whose behavior keeps triggering you.
And if your love interest signals a need for space, give it to them instead of frantically texting or pushing for a talk. Feeling the urge for more freedom yourself? You don’t have to throw the baby out with the bathwater. It’s totally possible to create more breathing room in a relationship without calling the whole thing off. And just because you and your partner were on the same page in the past doesn’t mean you’re aligned for eternity. But avoid making any unilateral decisions for now. Check in and get consensus (and consent) before taking action.
The Sun enters Capricorn on Thursday, welcoming the winter solstice
It’s beginning to feel a lot like solstice! The Sun enters Capricorn this Thursday, December 21, marking the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. Under the cover of darkness, turn inward and scan the landscape of your subconscious mind. Carve out space to meditate, reflect and find gratitude for the high points of your 2023. Then clarify what you’d like to leave behind as you enter 2024—and what evolution you’re most proud to bring with you into the new year.
The winter solstice always coincides with the Sun’s move into grounding, elegant Capricorn. And since the celestial Sea Goat is the governor of goal-setting, how perfect is it that we get to make our resolutions under this solar power surge every year? Get a running list going in your Notes app for now so you can enjoy the holidays pressure-free.
And with Mercury retrograde from December 13 to January 1—and conjunct the Sun on December 22—you’ll be wise to get a little traction BEFORE the new year while thoughts are still clear. The first new moon of 2024 is on January 11, so you’re not going to lose your momentum (or your “high pro glow”) if you wait until then to set your intentions in stone.
Speaking of Mercury…
Mouthy Mercury, which is retrograde until January 1, backs into outspoken Sagittarius on Saturday for the rest of the year. Cheeky comments that are normally entertaining could come across as rude, tactless or inappropriate under these signal-scrambling skies. Save the adult humor and off-the-cuff remarks for 2024 because they’ll surely disrupt the holiday cheer, especially if you tread beyond “family-friendly” terrain. See our post about how to hang for the holidays with any zodiac sign!
Who needs to heap more fire on that Yule log? Visiting loved ones might require extra precautions during this argumentative time. If you have to cut a trip short or stay at a hotel to preserve the peace, err on the side of “personal space.” You might want to rethink that out-of-town invitation for NYE, especially if plans have already started to get complicated. Sharing an Airbnb with ten of your closest friends might mean starting 2024 with ten brand-new frenemies. Not worth the risk!

One of your most admirable qualities is how you always look for the greatest good in people, Leo, but one of your “blind spots” is that you assume everyone else is the same way.

A friend, possibly a neighbor or a sibling, could try to piggyback onto something you’ve been planning, which you might like the sound of—at first.
