Mercury moves away from the tension inducing connection to Pluto and Uranus, for now. It will be triggered again in late January. For now we can treasure a lovely tie up between the Moon, Jupiter and Venus in Scorpio.
This combination will not be a complete panacea for pre-Christmas stresses and strains but if we can park some of the pressure we are putting ourselves under and give ourselves permission to engage in the more celebratory possibilities, then we should try. For your FREE Daily Horoscope Tuesday 22nd December 2015 please see below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Material needs and security issues come into focus, which can be the reason you decide to review your situation and reflect on your future prospects. Although surrounded by the extravagance of Christmas you might want to consider where exactly your cash is going, and how much extra you really need to spend this week.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
The Sun's passage into canny Capricorn can bring a sense of relief, as the heavier vibe of recent weeks gives way to a more relaxed, yet adventurous perspective. If you're going away, then today's influences can be helpful for any preparation. Nevertheless, a lovely Moon Jupiter tie can as easily reveal leisure options closer to home.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Tensions seem to have eased, making the day ahead a much more positive and constructive experience. Indeed, you may find this the perfect opportunity to work behind-the-scenes and to organize and attend to any outstanding holiday tasks. Don't push yourself too hard, as a chance to indulge is also part of the remit.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
You'll enjoy the sociable focus that epitomizes this time of year. And as the Sun glides into Capricorn and your relationship sector, the pace heats up - providing even more opportunities to mingle. Even so, the Moon Mercury connection suggests being a little bit more astute about who you associate with today - and why.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
During this Christmas week, when most people are getting ready to unwind, you may be very keen on getting everything organized down to the last detail. Indeed, this might go a long way to help you prevent any potential setbacks. If you take the decision to better manage your time like this, others can be impressed Leo.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
If you've been itching to get into creative mode and get out the craft materials, paints and glue sticks - then the present aesthetic theme encourages you to have a go. Whether you're hand-making gifts for family and friends or adding a few personalized decorations to the Christmas tree, you can indulge to your heart's content.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
As lovely Venus syncs with Jupiter this can be an excellent time to invest in anything that enhances your sense of well-being. With this week being particularly hectic, you might find that your vitality is boosted with a massage or some other therapeutic treatment. Indeed, releasing tension might help you get more done today.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Although Venus isn't entirely at ease in your sign, its link with the Taurus Moon suggests that your mood will be generally upbeat today. Nevertheless, a natural tendency to hold back from others can be interpreted as indifference - unless you make a point of sharing your feelings. This can be especially so with someone close.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
The Sun's move into your money zone hints that it's a good time to take stock of your present financial position and to adjust your outgoings accordingly. In addition, the Taurus Moon might invoke one or two great ideas for ways to enhance your income - or on another note, to recycle items that no longer are relevant to you.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
You'll be back in the swing of things as the Sun powers into your sign for a month-long stay. Indeed, you'll soon find your vitality and focus increasing, along with a desire to get up to speed with ideas you've been hatching. And this evening, a lovely Moon Venus connection can be a cue to sample and embrace the Christmas spirit.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
The Sun's move into a more secluded part of your chart suggests you're entering a period when you may crave a lower profile, research ideas or reflect on your next moves. If you have got all pressing demands out of the way, it can be a sign to really start to relax, and begin to let any recent tensions ebb out of your system.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Lunar ties today build on the sociable opportunities available to you yesterday. In fact, one thing may lead to another, especially if you're planning an event today. A very promising planetary backdrop actively encourages you to get involved in an idea that can unite those in your community and bring you all closer together.
