Mercury slams on the brakes for a rare fourth time in one year. Care as ever with travel and communication will be required. However, with the Sun bursting into Capricorn and linking brilliantly with Mars in Pisces, focused but sensitive action, can produce results. Venus also forges a goregous link to Jupiter and for some, love can be in the Christmas air. For your FREE Weekly Horoscope 19th December 2016 please see below...
Weekly Horoscopes 19th December 2016
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Your week begins with your ruler Mars in a new location. This can stir up a lot of emotion right throughout the week, but also if you can add this extra sensitivity to your natural leadership skills, and deploy a slice of diplomacy, you can help to keep things on an even keel. Christmas Day also sees a beautiful beguiling planetary connection and one friendship can become so much closer.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
That change of scene you have yearned for more and more, may or may not be possible this week, but little will stop you from preparing the way for the New Year, when you can be very much focused on expanding your horizons. However, if you are in fact travelling, just factor in a Plan B to your thinking as there may be a delay or two along the way that you encounter, Taurus.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Venus is set to make an absolutely stunning link to Jupiter this week, and this can lead to a very special connection with one person. However, longer term relationships may be more complex. Politics can be rife, and at a time of year when we all want things to be peaceful, patience can be a virtue. However, your excitement can mount for more worldly ambitions for 2017.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Mercury moves into a retrograde motion in your sector of relationships. This cautions you not to take any situation or any person too much for granted. Equally, it's an opportunity to reach out to someone you have not been in touch with for some while. However, Christmas Day itself can be a friendly, affectionate and bubbly occasion, full of festive cheer and merriment.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
More than ever this year you can find yourself wanting to delegate, and let someone else take more of the strain. Of course you're going to still be virtuous to the people who really count, but there is going to be something of a balance that you want to achieve, and essentially this means bringing a much lighter, more playful vibe to bear. Yule itself though, could be poignant.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Two big planetary changes occur at the very start of this week, and one of them involves your guiding light of Mercury. This is asking us all to be as flexible as possible this week, and especially about the more social element where things can prove rather fluid. However, with the Sun forging an amazing link to Mars, one relationship can buoy with you incredibly well, Virgo.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Family arrangements can be subject to some last-minute changes, which could prove somewhat frustrating. However, the angle between your guide Venus and the fortunate Jupiter in your sign, suggests that even if you do have to count to ten around some close involvements, there can be others which prove to be much lighter, more enjoyable and one potentially even rather flirty.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
The run up to Christmas sees the Sun power into your sector of everyday communications, perfect for the partying to come. It's going to be important to work hard at the arrangements because there could be some mixed signals or even some mix-ups when it comes to the finer details. A connection with one family member however, can prove to be truly heart-warming.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
A wonderful trio of planets link beautifully with the gentle and alluring energies of Venus. And all this can create a tremendous sense of bonhomie. However, if you're waiting for a vital payment, do be persistent and refuse to be fobbed off with feeble excuses. One special person can prove to be particularly generous with their time, energy and support, which will gratify you.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
The Sun Storms back into your sign after an eleven month hiatus. He also forges a very powerful link to Mars, and this combination can strengthen your sense of purpose, and also give you much more confidence around conversations or interactions with others you encounter. A boss or co-worker can also prove to be exceptionally generous or kind-hearted, Capricorn.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Although there is a big emphasis on the most gentle and somewhat contemplative part of your situation, you can still sparkle socially. With the planet of attraction forging a gorgeous link to Jupiter, there may be more than one occasion this week, when people are drawn to the very unique vibe that you emanate. The solid friends in your world will also bring you much joy and comfort.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
The week begins with the feisty energies of Mars finding his feet in your zodiac sign. This is great news Pisces, not least because he also angles up brilliantly with the Sun. This suggests you can take a leading role in what unfolds this week either socially, or within the family. Mind, as ever at this time of year, not everything will go exactly to plan. If so, try to be philosophical.
