Monday December 10, 2018
Looking up to people can be a double-edged sword today. On the one hand, your mentors and gurus can show you the ropes, make important introductions and offer useful advice. And yet they can be authoritative and overbearing—something your independent sign is allergic to! With the moon in your tenth house of professional ambition today, the cosmic message is: Humble thyself! Make the most of this experience and then, when the moon swings into your social zone this evening, you’ll have some great “war” stories to share!
You may not be ready for the weekend to end, even if it is a holiday-season Monday. So who says you can’t stretch the R+R into this workweek? Take your sweet old time getting up and out today. With the moon in your adventurous ninth house until early evening, linger over coffee, drop in to artists’ markets, scour travel deals (for now, soon or whenever). If you must make a cameo at the office, spend the morning attending to the more social aspects of your job. Later, when la luna enters your ambitious tenth house, you’ll crush those power meetings and brainstorming sessions!
Want to get closer to somebody, Gemini? Try letting them feel like they’re getting a little closer to YOU. Today, the soulful moon is in your private eighth house. Go on, share an intimate confession with someone and watch your connection get deeper and stronger once you do. Just make sure this person deserves your trust—in other words, don’t go venting to the office gossip. This evening, when la luna swings into your adventurous ninth house, reach out to a farther-flung friend. Maybe you can even snag a long-distance invite.
You’re not one to willingly leave your comfort zone, but this evening, when the moon shifts from self-protective Capricorn into fearless Aquarius and your open-ended eighth house, there’ll be no holding you back! Stay in your bubble this morning so you can be ready to take a bold giant step and explore opportunities outside your usual sphere of influence. Opposites attract, and you could connect with someone VERY different—depending on how much stretching you can handle, Crab.
It’s an all-work AND all-play kind of day today, Leo, as the moon starts off in your orderly sixth house and then, in the evening, shimmies into your partnership corner. Take care of business early on. You’ll be amazed at how much you can accomplish when you’re motivated. Squeeze in a morning workout to really get your juices flowing. Later, when la luna lights up that relationship nook, fire up the candles and cue the seductive soundtrack. Single? Let the swiping games begin!
You know what they say about all work and no playtime, Virgo. With the moon in your fifth house of sensuality and glamour most of the day, set up an Away message and disappear for a few hours (or at least take the longest-possible lunch hour) and book a last-minute massage or spa pedicure. If it’s not going to break the bank, treat yourself to that pair of boots you’ve been ogling (we know you too well, Virgo). Text your sweetie or get some after-work right-swiping in. Tonight holds the promise of romance!
Ease into the workweek, Libra. With the emo moon in your cozy fourth house, it may be hard to pull yourself out from under the covers. If you don’t absolutely, positively have to be somewhere (like, you know, your desk) at a certain time, give yourself the gift of a lazy morning. Brew up your favorite loose tea and scan your go-to blogs. By evening, la luna will be in your fun-loving fifth house, and you’ll be unstoppable. Meet a date for dinner—your S.O., a good friend or, hey, maybe someone you’ve been chatting up in the virtual world.
With the moon lighting up your money zone for most of the day, your mind may gravitate to such financial issues as: Where can you cut back on expenditures? How can you pull in more income? And where can you find a cashmere turtleneck on sale NOW? We’ll leave that last one to your sartorial savviness, but when it comes to the first two questions, be guided by the “a penny saved is a penny earned” concept. Then make that every fiver…every twenty… as you enjoy the magical multiplier that is compound interest.
You never shortchange your friends in the support department, so why won’t you do the same for yourself? With the moon in your sign till early evening, you deserve a little indulgence. How about a big splurge instead? Have that loaded smoothie instead of the austere green juice. Treat yourself to a manicure even if your last one isn’t even chipping yet. And just say no-way to others’ exhausting requests. Later (or tomorrow), when la luna swings into your productive second house, you can get back to your regularly scheduled, hard-working programming.
Let it go so you can grow, Aquarius! You’re a freewheeling, “change is great” kind of person, but even you have your clingy moments. And they can come at the most unexpected times! Early in the day, as the moon orbits your unconscious twelfth house, reflect on what relationship or behavior isn’t serving you anymore. Then think about why you might be having such a hard time letting go. You don’t have to DO anything, Aquarius—just shine your bright light on this, knowing that once you see the truth of this situation, you won’t be able to keep forging ahead with anything that doesn’t feel right to your soul.
There are two kinds of leaders, Those who take charge by pushing and barking orders, and the kind that leads by example. Which will you be? The choice is yours as a powerful Capricorn moon marches through your teamwork zone. No matter how disorganized or how far behind schedule things are, you CAN ask for the help you need—or better yet, delegate. When it’s decision-making time, invite others to weigh in. They’ll feel empowered AND more inclined to follow your lead. Later, when la luna glides into your restful twelfth house, you can chill out to your heart’s content!
Who can you trust? There are so many versions of “the truth” being bandied about today, you may not know which to believe (if any). With the moon in your communication sector, you can’t just go with the most convincing tale. It’s up to you to unleash your investigative superpowers and get the facts. Dig and keep digging—and don’t be afraid to ask direct questions. This evening, when la luna invades your cozy fourth house, kick off your heels, put your feet up and enjoy some serene solitude.
