We're officially in the holiday homestretch this week so whichever belief system you subscribe to—spiritual, religious, or everything in between—this is a time for restoring your faith in and resetting your strategy for the future. Smack bang in the middle of Chanukah and rounding out Christmas night is a momentous "ring of fire" solar eclipse perfect for calling in a position of strength and security. This is a potent new moon moment, so make the most of by inviting in the light to guide your path and the commitment to see it through. Read on to discover what’s in store for your sign during the week of December 23 through to December 29, 2019, and double down by getting to know your rising sign.
Aries | Aries rising
Aries, this holiday week will have you drawing on your ample reserves of resilience as the eclipse sets up an emotional challenge for you to conquer. Face emotional headwinds by taking a deep breath before your Ramzilla first, think later manner. You may be burning the midnight oil to get through commitments or spending extra hours on your side hustle but the stars favor the payoff, especially if you’re doing it for your right reasons. Set your intentions midweek for what you need to let go of in terms of your public image, as well as your career, then what you’d like to draw in and develop. Your wisdom through work and experience is valid. Step into your authority and own your accumulated mastery, whatever that consists of, it’s your unique portfolio.
Taurus | Taurus rising
Your zone of expansion is a packed house with this week’s eclipse taking center stage. Your beliefs and overall view of the world are prime real estate for development. Call in the information, teachers, and experiences you need to broaden your horizons. Surrender those that no longer satisfy your need for personal growth. Inspiration may come from afar so foster relationships with those that resonate and inspire you to develop your outlook on the world. These may appear as podcasts, a stimulating IG feed or any other mix of traditional methods expressed in a new, fresh way. Embrace the authority life's journey has given you, the wisdom you’ve gained through experience, and share it with others who can benefit.
Gemini | Gemini rising
If it wasn’t already hot in here, your zone of shared resources hosts the new moon ‘ring of fire’ eclipse this week. Bring all your yours and they’ll bring all theirs for a combined effort that packs more punch than you could achieve separately. United they stand could be your motto this week. You're a natural twin and can work in with others as well as reflect and refract some interesting components of collaborators that they may not otherwise manage to expose, and vice versa. Set your intentions for calling in compatible professionals, as well as the kind of deep union you desire for your partnership. Authority, maturity, perhaps someone that’s a bit wiser, if not older is suggested for you.
Cancer | Cancer rising
Your partnership zone is especially toasty thanks to the mid-week ‘ring of fire’ new moon eclipse. Your partner may have a change of direction or a new start on the cards. As always, new moons are fertile cosmic ground to set intentions. Set yours for security and recommit with your significant other, your closest friend/s or business partner. Call in what you need to feel safe, heard, seen and felt if it’s not quite up to scratch. Manifesting 101: look for evidence of those needs already existing in various areas of your life. Feel what those ideal feelings in your body and let them expand. This is an embodiment exercise that helps you create from the present moment, and lets your subconscious know what you want more of.
Leo | Leo rising
Call in your ideal work and daily routine scenario on this dramatic new moon eclipse. Since eclipses can signal an emotional need to let something go and pivot you into a new direction, notice what your heart is calling for. You may want to step into more authority, to gain recognition for your what you do or even share somehow. Teaching by mentoring is suggested, is it time you gained more skill through someone established, or is it time you stepped up into a mentoring role. Sharing through social media as you go about your day would hold value to people keen to understand your trade and mindset around it. It’s an accessible way to demystify and allow others to pick up your how-to sessions.
Virgo | Virgo rising
Your zone of creative self-expression is lit up light Christmas with this week’s ring of fire hitting reset. If you’ve experienced blocks to making your masterpiece then this new moon is guaranteed to clear the decks! You already know what’s not serving you, so drop it. Your creative mountain is waiting for you to summit! Call in the practicalities you need to get to the next base camp on your journey. Let go of tripwires to allowing yourself to shine bright in fun, self-expression and/or romance. Breath before you react Virgo. Insight overreacting will go a long way in clearing a love demon you’ve been harboring between the independent stage of romance and the creepy crawlies you need to detox to get to that shared space.
Libra | Libra rising
Get ready to reset in your home zone as the midweek ‘ring of fire’ suggests out with the old and committing to something new. Do you need to step into a more mature domestic scene? Or perhaps apply a new level of discipline around the homestead? Something isn’t gelling with the way you’re living, and your significant relationships or partner. The divide is between responsibility and order, living life on your terms, yet also maintaining your independence and spontaneity. Allowing your significant other the same balance is crucial. The new moon will force a revelation and bring home the reality of the situation so you can work on bridging a solution. Your ability to call in and activate unexpected resources in others goes a long way in supporting change.
Scorpio | Scorpio rising
Call in sources of knowledge and connections from your immediate environment as the new moon eclipse suggests a reset here as well as an abundance of local wisdom. If you need a change of scene, make the call. Short trips can do wonders for perspective shifts and open you up to unexpected insight by changing up your routine. The follow-up eclipse in two weeks will provide more tangible clarity. Sibling relationships look to be reset somehow so let go of ways you’ve been relating that don’t work for you. A flowing connection to fresh approaches or even a new, interesting person in your life will help things move forward. Set your intentions for calling in information you need, especially as the communication planet Mercury will set this zone abuzz from Sunday.
Sagittarius | Sagittarius rising
This week’s new moon with accompanying ‘ring of fire’ will reset your money mindset, income and values. It's time to assume more responsibility than you have been to maximize this area of your life. Your authority and gathered mastery are underpinning cash flow, so step up and bank on it. See the value of what you have to contribute and don’t compare yourself to others. Changing up your routine will provide fresh inspo while fresh innovative approaches in your general day to day work zone help catalyze new financial flow. There’s a conflict between your income and your fun, romance and creativity zone. It seems you’re swinging between the two at the cost of each. Combine a creative and fun approach with how you earn or work collaboratively on a creative project that you can profit share.
Capricorn | Capricorn rising
Midweek hosts the annual new moon + eclipse in your sign. Solar eclipses suggest emotional realities are revealed with unmistakable clarity. While we don’t always like the truth, your sign is so pragmatic you’d rather know what you’re dealing with so you can take measures to course correct. There are only two more eclipses to go in your sign so make the most of revelations. This month it will be emotionally based, while January will deliver external clarity. Using your unique creativity and resetting your course, outlook or even your look is all on the cards to benefit you. There are stressors in your living or emotional arrangements with a fresh surprise in the romance and creativity zone- organize a date or surprise your partner to freshen life up!
Aquarius | Aquarius rising
The new moon and attendant ring of fire eclipse is activating your Zen zone this week. How can you reset the ways you drop out to tune in to your inner voice? It all sounds a bit esoteric and that’s because it is. This area of life is the most non-material yet supports your ability to recharge as well keep your finger on the pulse of the collective so you can serve as the times require. Note subtle doorways to your soul this week, dreams, signs and symbols. Rest, digest, and make the most of any time off to settle into your own company. Change and surprise on the home front will support your efforts. Perhaps creating a meditation space or other ‘room of one’s own’ would be an asset.
Pisces | Pisces rising
Setting your intentions to back a specific outcome greater than oneself has been the pivot point proven by Oprah to work so effectively she uses it for just about everything she does: attributing it to next leveling her success and her first of a swag of Emmys. Manifest on this week’s new moon in pragmatic Capricorn. Set your intentions on what you want to achieve, who you want to connect with and what kind of message you feel ripe to share. This is a giving back kind of vibe and it comes at the perfect time of year to do just that. If you experience a reshuffle of your squad, aka extended social network of friends and beyond that share common interests and goals, go with what and who resonates in your heart and on that higher level.
