Your weekly horoscope December 25-31, 2023

Here's what's in store for your zodiac sign this week.

While you illuminate this week’s smorgasbord of seasonal celebrations, the astrological readout suggests being ready to turn the unexpected to your advantage, as the cosmic (and comic) forces send you all the ingredients needed for a happy, light-hearted and loving holiday season. Here’s your weekly horoscope December 25-31, 2023.

Capricorn, Dec 22 – Jan 20

As mischief-making Mercury continues to complicate the Christmas mix and beyond, savvy Capricorns will consider this just so much added spice to the celebrations. And even though some things may not turn out as planned this week, who’s to say they won’t be even better? 

Aquarius, Jan 21 – Feb 19

Yes, Mercury’s still retrograde for the rest of the year, but Venus, planet of affection and pleasure, bounding this week into her most fun-loving and adventurous placement to give the departing year a jolly good sendoff is likely to arrive with a bunch of delightful surprises.

Pisces, Feb 20 – Mar 20

Pisceans are compulsive caretakers. But your energy supply isn’t endless, so don’t zap reserves this week, especially round the year’s final full moon in a sensitive and sentimental fellow water sign. Replenish your own joie de vivre instead with an overdue pamper package or indulgence session.

Aries, Mar 21 – Apr 21

Any backup plans you made will come into their own this week, as others applaud your extraordinary psychic forethought. Even better? Late December’s gift of a beautiful confidence reboot when healing comet Chiron, retrograde in Aries since July, makes a dazzling takeoff towards the new year.

Taurus, Apr 22 – May 21

This year has definitely saved your best present till last: namely, at the end of this week, after four months standing still in your sign, generous Jupiter powering forward in Taurus promises an expansive and profitable 2024, and isn’t that worth popping the bubbly for?

Gemini, May 22 – Jun 22

You might not realize, but this week it’s necessary to shield your field from other people’s emo moods. If your normally positive attitude starts being affected, step away: don’t carry it into your day. The good news? Venus is in her prime socializing mode: user-friendly, optimistic and party hearty…

Cancer, Jun 23 – Jul 23

After the busy festivities start winding down, the quiet comfort of 27 December Cancer full moon in your domestic sign offers much-needed respite to chill and tend your nest with close friends and family – to spend the last week of 2023 coming home to yourself for maintenance and self-care.

Leo, Jul 24 – Aug 23

As 2023 cruises to its inevitable conclusion, take a moment to congratulate yourself on what you’ve achieved this year. And what you’re ready to leave behind. Late week Leo moon sparks creative inspirations which open a portal for your majesty’s entrepreneurial personality and talents to shine.  

Virgo, Aug 24 – Sep 23

Closing out the year with Mercury retrograde mightn’t be everyone’s choice, but it does have the benefit of showing what’s not working for you anymore, and what changes to make, with new year’s fruitful Virgo moon offering support for sowing the seeds of what you plan to grow next year.  

Libra, Sep 24 – Oct 23

Yes, maintaining boundaries can be tricky. You won’t be able to please everyone this week, which fortunately gives a celestial master class on saying no to inconvenient requests. So just go ahead and enjoy planning your ideal Venusian holiday season, whatever that is for you.

Scorpio, Oct 24 – Nov 22

This week’s celestial menu could have a surprise or two up its starry sleeve, especially in the lead up to new year’s eve, when Venus at her most outrageously spontaneous suggests anything unexpected and out of the ordinary can happen, and you might be required to improvise.

Sagittarius, Nov 23 – Dec 21

Two kinds of excellent news this week Archers, with Jupiter your leading planet heading out of its four month retrograde in your health and work sector at the end of December. And there’s more: Venus leaping boldly into your enthusiastic, outgoing sign for a glorious late year finale.
