Aries:

Eight of Swords / Nine of Swords

Tied up in knots, Aries; there’s something that you’re fearing and it’s making you feel stifled; held back.  This feels like something that you need to do – as in an obligation – but your heart hasn’t been in it.  For some this is to do with the people you’ll need to be around during the holiday period; people who you assume will have certain expectations of you and you don’t feel like you’ll be free to express yourself.  But there’s also a discussion or even a confrontation that some of you have been dreading and so have been avoiding and it feels mostly to be a relationship issue – and you feel that if you speak your mind freely, it might cause damage that you won’t be able to recover from.  This is the tight bind in the majority of cases.  But in each of these cases, what do you plan to do?  Not just now, but how do you see it being sustainable in the longer term?  Where will relationships that are not ultimately based on openness and honesty lead to?  The thing is, the trap here is one you lay yourself, and the more you overthink it, the more tangled that web gets.  Did you consider that you have less to fear than you expect?  That you might actually be heard and things might improve?  The mindset you approach this situation with is everything here.  Expecting the worst either stops you from acting altogether, or it makes you act in a way in which you don’t have your heart in it; but either way, you don’t move forward.  And at this time moving forward is what you need to do.  Because this leads on to better things, no matter what.  There are blessings for you, if you can trust yourself enough to share what you need to.  And that sets the tone for a 2019 in which you can maintain that spirit of openness.  The alternative is to remain trapped in indecision or half-heartedness.  So speak your mind, but do so with love, generosity, and respect.

Taurus:

XI – Strength / Seven of Cups

There was a time when you felt better, Taurus.  More carefree.  Even if you had a difficult childhood there were still those moments when you just felt able to play, before you started to feel the weight of the world on you.  But right now it feels like every decision you’re facing has the potential to overwhelm you; and it’s left you tired, and possibly clouded the rational part of your judgement.  Be careful about making snap decisions this week, especially ones that are purely emotional.  Some of you have a choice about who you spend the holiday period with; and some of you are so relieved about this.  But some are just taking what on the surface feels like the easier option.  And the easier option is the one that allows you to avoid difficult feelings, and means that you get to leave some things unsaid.  But in some cases that means also leaving expressions of genuine love and compassion unsaid; and that’s not necessarily the wisest move for you at this time.  It could be family members that you’re seeking to avoid, but for some of you it may be friends.  Remember that childlike and carefree approach and feeling?  That’s what you need to take into these encounters; so they don’t feel so heavy; so the more difficult memories and the emotions you associate with them don’t immediately undermine everything.  These are not easy encounters, but what they are is an opportunity to show how much you’ve grown.  They’re an opportunity to do justice to your relationships and your responsibilities.  Whatever decision you come to, try to make sure it’s for the right reasons; without allowing anyone else to pull your strings and without being under any illusions.

Gemini:

Ace of Wands / Nine of Crystals

This one’s more peaceful for you, Gemini.  A well-earned rest and you may even be choosing to spend a good chunk of time alone this week.   And even if you’re not, it feels vital that you do schedule in some valuable alone-time.  This feels very reflective to me; you’re taking stock of the year as a whole and you’re surprised by the progress you’ve made, the responsibilities you’ve held down, and the ways in which you’ve grown.  Have a look back at what you set out to do at the start of 2018.  How did it stack up?  What went well, what moved in unexpected ways, what did you drop, and what moved that you had no plans for at all?  Because this feels big, it feels like certain breakthroughs have been made, and this has led to greater independence and increased self-confidence.  I feel like the time alone may, at least in part, be best spent in nature this week (I literally have the image of you walking outside, snow crunching beneath your shoes); taking the time to connect and to appreciate what you have learned about yourself over the course of the year.  You should be feeling bold and you should be feeling ready for even bigger things in the new year; and this time will allow you set the clearest possible intentions for where you go from here.  For some of you it also feels like there may be the prospect of a new relationship budding, right as the year closes and possibly with a fire sign (Aries, Leo or Sagittarius – Sun, Moon or Rising).  Stay open, but don’t worry too much about going looking for it – it’s that independence you’ve gained that makes all of this possible.

Cancer:

Six of Cups / Seven of Swords

You’re missing someone this week, Cancer.  The energy feels a lot like a maternal grandmother; although it could be a mother, for some of you (and certainly someone who played that kind of role in your life).  For many of you, this may be the first time you’ve been without them at this time of year.  This is occupying your thoughts and feelings a lot; to the extent that some of you feel if wouldn’t be right for you to have a good time or to be celebrating too hard.  It’s important to remember and it’s important to grieve; and hopefully you are taking time for those things.  But this doesn’t have to be a sad time.  As they’re on your mind, you you should probably find an appropriate way to honour their memory over the course of this week.  Light a candle, pray, visit their grave or somewhere symbolically significant to your relationship with them.  But you’re not betraying them or their memory by also finding happier times at this time of year; and it feels like some of you are minded to deny yourselves that.  There’s a need to strike a balance in this sense, because there’s still a need to look forward and into your own future and still a need to live in today.  Feel all that you need to, but don’t deny yourself the chance to enjoy yourself when it comes up.

Leo:

Two of Swords / IX – Serenity

It looks like your week’s already action-packed Leo.  Some of you are looking at going out and partying hard; and the party may not even stop until the New Year rolls in.  I see some great times especially amongst friends or with your partner and very much a sense of letting loose, with all the cobwebs being blown away.  And that’s good, at least in one sense, so go and enjoy yourself…  But there’s something else you need to decide sometime soon, and the only issue is going to be if going out so much becomes a means of avoiding that, or of avoiding yourself; so some degree of moderation is also urged.  It’s probably been a very busy year for you; whether that is work, family, or your social life.  How much time have you made for yourself?  And not just to curl up and watch Netflix; but more generally, have you connected in with yourself regularly and when you need to?  Either something – some pattern or habit – needs to be left behind; or some kind of choice needs to be made – and this is what you’ve been avoiding.  You’re setting your patterns for the New Year at this time, and it feels like you need to make a clear choice to be more in touch with yourself.  More OK with yourself, and with a greater level of responsibility for your own decisions.  Going with the flow gets you so far; but this is about where you want to steer the ship next, and it feels like that’s the ground that some of you fear to tread on.  But it’s time for that; time to feel into your deepest needs, visualise where you want to go next and to start to take the necessary steps to get there.  This will be an area of ongoing work and growth for you; so make some time this week to introduce it into your life.

Virgo:

III – The Empress / Knight of Swords

There’s a problem or situation that’s been vexing you for a while, Virgo.  Something that you’ve been trying to apply your creativity to.  You’re pretty good at that stuff and your inability to quite get your head round it has been frustrating for you; but fair play to you, you’ve kept at it, you’ve kept trying to feel your way through it.  But it’s reaching a stage where you’re now just sort of “whatever” about it.  So what’s gone wrong, why didn’t you get there?  It’s almost like you’ve been thinking way too hard about it (and the it feels like a relationship situation in some sense; not necessarily romantic either – I feel parent-child and especially mother-daughter being the dominant type of relationship here); and that’s overthinking, and that’s where it seems to have gone wrong, you don’t trust your own instinctive approach to it.  But that is what’s required here.  So just stop for a moment.  Now, what’s your first thought about what to do?  Grab onto that, and go with it.  Because I feel like you’ll have a “Eureka!” moment if only you allow that to happen.  No need to discount or interrogate what comes up either.  Just put that into action and see what effect it has.  You are ruled by Mercury, after all, and there are times when Mercury needs to just be quick and decisive.

Libra:

XI – Strength / Seven of Crystals

You’re avoiding something, Libra.  Or more accurately, you feel like giving up on something.  It feels like too much, you’re not sure if you can stand the heat; and it just feels like you’re expecting conflict upon conflict and for things to go badly.  It’s making you hesitant and it’s making you avoidant.  It’s also nowhere near as severe in reality as it is inside your own head.  Yes, it’s tricky.  Yes, for you as well, this feels like a difficult family relationship; very much the theme of the season.  But there is a need here to give both yourself, and them, a chance.  For some of you this also relates to a work project, something you don’t feel like you’ve done enough for, or are enough for.  But here’s the thing – you are.  And in that familial setting – you’re enough there too.  You’ve been working hard this year – damn hard in fact; you’ve mostly stayed very focused and you’ve not only built a lot that you don’t give yourself enough credit for; but you’ve changed too.  Changed for the better.  So you’re not approaching any of this from where you were a year ago, two years ago, five years ago.  You need to recognise that progress and what it means for you.  This is where you can draw strength and confidence from when approaching these situations that you’d rather do without, and in terms of self-belief where work is concerned too.  You’re not the finished article, but you’re on your way there.  There’s no need to avoid what you’ve grown into; and no need to hold onto attitudes or perceptions that you’ve outgrown.  Give it a chance, and allow yourself to show yourself for all that you’ve become; as well as all you’re on the road to becoming.

Scorpio:

Knight of Crystals / Five of Crystals

I feel like you’re opening your eyes to new and bigger possibilities this week, Scorpio.  Things that you hadn’t even considered before.  Like looking up on a clear, starry night and realising how big and magnificent everything that surrounds you is.  But you’re also focused; you recognise it won’t be easy to get where you wish to, but you’re feeling so confident, your self-belief is so high; and that’s your starting-point for planning where you go from here.  So yes, we’re looking at New Year’s resolutions and intentions being formulated too; but you’re coming from this place of absolute openness and readiness to head towards them – you won’t just be sitting back and waiting.  So there’s a lot of planning here, a lot of visualising, but also deciding what those first steps are going to be.  And that’s something you can take the time this week to work on; to get it clear in your own head but also to be ready to fly into action as we move into 2019.  Prepare and plan well – it feels like with your sights being set so high, it’s a narrow path with maybe not too much margin for error.  But have absolute faith in what you can bring to fruition – what you’re focusing on feels so, so positive and right for you; even though the going may not always be easy – don’t allow yourself to be dissuaded or knocked off-course.

Sagittarius:

XVII – The Star / XI – Strength

You’re on your way towards something, Sagittarius.  In fact I see you running towards it – your momentum is high; it feels like there’s no rest for the wicked here.  So hopefully you already know what that is.  In fact I don’t feel like you want to be distracted from it or really let up at all; so the holiday season may be something you feel as an inconvenience.  That might bring up impatience, or at least some frustration, and those are emotions that you can acknowledge; as well as any others that you may experience at this time.  But it doesn’t feel like they’re going to hold you up for long, nor have as severe an impact on you as emotional situations and/or seasonal triggers might have in the past; and that’s because your sights are set on something.  But the good news is that that something; this line of self-development that leads on to work, creative projects or new things; will still be there if you do pause, do celebrate, or do allow yourself to feel what you need to; so you can still take a break and deal with things.  Just keep that focus and return to it.  Think about journalling here, writing down all that excites you about what you have in the pipeline and all your hopes that surround it.  Then if necessary you can return to that after that time out and catch that flavour again (you could also programme a crystal with this stuff if you prefer).  You’re not someone who’s going to be sidetracked for long, but the good news is you already have a major focus for 2019, so one less thing to have to think too much about for now.

Capricorn:

Ace of Cups / King of Swords

You’re really feeling in your rhythm, Capricorn.  Right in your flow.  The Sun is transiting your sign and it seems to be lighting you up.  Everything’s so much lighter, more optimistic, but also focused; and you’re looking into the New Year with a smile on your face and feeling so very accomplished; really emerging from the darkness and ready to go.  There’s this exuberance about you but also a desire to celebrate and to share your good mood.  And most around you are going to welcome that.  But it feels like someone may try to burst your bubble this week.  They’re most likely an Air Sign (Gemini, Libra or Aquarius; Sun, Moon or Rising); and well, they’re less convinced.  And to be honest, your first instinct is just to brush them out of the way.  No time for a negative Nelly when things are going well for you, right?  But if you can, try not to be too dismissive.  They’re unlikely to mean you any harm, but they may need you to offer some compassion and understanding for their situation.   For some of you this is your father who you’ll be encountering and you may have a sense of nothing ever being good enough for him.  And maybe it can’t be, but then that means this is a situation to be dealt with with as good grace as possible.  Keep your own joy and spread and share it wherever you can; but don’t let anyone come in and deflate you; cos you got this and it feels like you know you do too.

Aquarius:

Two of Swords / Page of Cups

You’re a bit frustrated and maybe a bit bored, Aquarius.  Not really enjoying what you’re doing – it feels like someone else may be setting a lot of the agenda in your life right now and that’s not something you really get much out of; and you feel like you’re too old and wise for that.  And yet you can’t easily break out of it – you don’t necessarily see clear options and alternatives.  So what are you going to do with this?  Keep getting more downhearted?  Or accept that just for the moment and for this week, you may need to follow rather than to lead?  Because this may not be as bad as you’re making it out to be, so it comes down to what you make of it.  It’s not like this person, who feels like a partner in many cases (and if so is probably just trying to manage a difficult or busy time of year for themself as well as for you), doesn’t have your best interests at heart; and you probably need them in this role a lot more than you let on.  So show them some appreciation.  Show them some love.  And look for the joy and the beauty in the things that you’re doing together or that they’re directing you to do at this time.  It may actually be a lot better than you’re perceiving it; and even if not, you can at least make the absolute best of it.  You’ll be back in control of a few things pretty soon, why not enjoy someone else having the reigns for a bit?

Pisces:

0 – Starseed / Three of Swords

So close.  So close to a new start in a new year, Pisces.  And yet, you’re not quite ready for a new start.  There’s an old hurt that has your attention; something that’s been stirred up during a turbulent and trying year.  But at the same time, it is old, it’s not current, even though it’s totally drawn you away from the more hopeful focus that you need to be adopting at this time.  So you’re emotional.  You’re remembering.  And it’s a very great pain that you’ve been carrying.  But it’s also one that you have been working on healing.  So it’s OK to acknowledge it.  But what needs to be avoided is over-identifying with an old relationship that you have to that hurt, to that wound.  Part of your healing journey has to be in working on changing that narrative, and that can’t happen when you cling so tightly to the old one.  Your pain is real and nothing should detract from that.  But simply fixating doesn’t allow for healing; there has to be a new approach.  And you’re poised to find it – it feels like many of you will find a path or method that allows for deeper healing than you thought possible, if you can only allow yourself to be open to it.  There is huge potential for new starts and new beginnings in your life at this time; but that’s something you have to allow yourself to believe in.  All it takes is a slight shift of focus; you’re not being asked to repress anything.  Just make space for the new to come in, because the Universe is ready to surprise you.
