12-17-2018 to 12-23-2018
You're as chill as they come, Aquarius—MOST of the time. But when you're abuzz with inspiration or fired up about an injustice (or simply can't contain one of your genius wisecracks), there's no holding you back. This Thursday, December 20, will be one of 2018's finest "filters off" days. The Sun in unvarnished Sagittarius will mash up with your ruler, shock-jock Uranus, in your communication center. Speak your truth and stick up for what you believe in. With your persuasive perspective, your memes and tweets could go viral. Just be clear about your audience BEFORE you unleash. Your words could come across as overtly combative—or a way-too-soon joke could bomb. Is there a holiday charity that's been speaking to your heart? As the Sun's fuel powers up that Uranian-ruled humanitarian spirit of yours, you could rally your friend group for a make-the-world-a-better-place mission. Or just play secret Santa for people in your community by making an anonymous donation or dropping in to help someone who is struggling, but too proud to ask for an assist.
On Friday, settle down for that month-long winter's nap. The Sun makes its annual sojourn through Capricorn and your numinous twelfth house until January 20. These four weeks leading up to your birthday can be the most lowkey time of year. This vibe lends itself well to cozy moments by the fire, but since this is also high season for socializing, take lots of disco naps and revel in the fact that "pajama dressing" can still be passed off as couture. (Oh, tidings of COMFORT and Zzzzzzzzz....) Whenever possible, set your status to Away, and make a point of being present with the people you're with (non-virtually). Need to get away? There's no better time for exploring your inner landscape as your subconscious mind will be lit! To capture those divine downloads, spend time, daily, in solitude. How about starting a 21-day meditation challenge right after Christmas? As you reflect and introspect, you may realize that it's time to let go of an untenable situation or a toxic vice. Avoid false positivity or "spiritual bypass," by first allowing yourself to hash through your shadowy emotions with an objective sounding board. You have to go there in order to get to your truth, Aquarius. Then, the love and light can emerge from an honest place, one that also gives you the space to gracefully point out an issue that needs to be amended—or forgiven! This solar surge can help you clear out things in your physical world as well. Tackle a decluttering mission by breaking it into small sections. A sustained campaign to remove the excess from one room—or closet—at a time will leave you feeling lighter and freer by the time the Sun blasts into Aquarius on January 20.
You could catch a somewhat inconveniently timed wellness buzz this Saturday as the full moon in Cancer goes harvesting in your healthy, efficient sixth house. If self-care is the one thing you've let slide in your quest to get it all done, flip that script. You might be able to get away with subsisting on caffeine and energy bars for a while, but that's not proper fuel for your body, and especially not your brain. This week, commit to a healthier diet—even in the face of holiday treats—and restock your fridge and cupboards with nourishing fare. Over the two weeks ruled by this salubrious moon, research easy, warm-your-bones recipes that call for fresh ingredients instead of processed ones. And once the holiday treats are polished off, consider doing a mini detox or cleanse. Schedule some bodywork to get out the kinks and load up on vitamin C and other immunity-supporting supplements to keep winter colds at bay. The efficiency-boosting moonbeams will do more to help you lifehack your way through the pre-holiday rush. As you review the top three "must-do's" on your list, think about how you can wrap them up with an extra, polished touch. Don't forget the importance of marketing yourself. In the most charming way possible, make sure the office influencers and decision makers—or your most important clients—are aware of your contributions and efforts before the ball drops on 2019!
