Venus takes on particularly significance, aligning initially with Mercury, as it goes Retrograde and then with Pluto on the 1st day of 2023. Thus values, and our relationships can be benchmarked in some kind of way. Capricorn which plays host, along with the Sun, can represent the culimination of past efforts, but equally show us where we need to reorientate our goals and ambitions, not just financially, but who we share time with too. For your in-depth Weekly Horoscope Forecast for WC 26th December for each sign, please see below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
As lively Mercury rewinds this week in a high-flying zone, it's an opportunity to think about your long-term priorities and review plans and goals. It's also a chance to ask the right questions before moving ahead with big commitments. Mind, Venus in Capricorn could be capricious. Be clear in your dealings to avoid confusion. New Year's Eve could be intense, but very interesting.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
Ready to take stock of your current situation? A key influence can make this the ideal time to do so, Taurus. There may be people who you haven't seen in a while who you'd like to reconnect with, and certain groups or clubs that no longer chime with you. Resetting your social priorities might also give you more time with those special friends who are true to you.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Venus in Capricorn makes it easier to persuade others that your ideas deserve their support, especially if you've been working hard to prove yourself. If there's one area you have doubts about though, it may be wise to let others know. With Mercury starting its retro phase, potential flaws could be quite costly. Have feelings for someone? Your body language may give it away.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
If you are too indecisive, you could end up doing nothing. The cosmos encourages you to act while you're excited about an idea or relationship, as too much uncertainty may mean your intentions come to nothing. Venus now in determined Capricorn, suggests you can be charming and persuasive when necessary, and putting these qualities to use could see you doing well.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
With an emphasis on lifestyle matters, an issue you've avoided may come up to be resolved once and for all. And with the planet of talk and thought rewinding this week, it might be easier to unpick the strands that are causing it. Even so, by New Year's Eve you'll realize you want something so badly you'll do anything to get it. Once you have it, it could fail to please, Leo.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
While it seems a good idea to make your feelings known about a relationship issue, another influence hints that keeping them to yourself may be wiser. With Mercury your ruler turning backwards, your desires could fluctuate, depending on your perspective. And with Venus in the mix, you might meet up with someone you haven't seen in a while, but have strong feelings for.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Venus's presence in your home zone is perfect for a relaxing week, if this is what you intend. You'll enjoy spending time in good company and indulging yours and others' needs and desires. But as the week progresses, Venus aligns with potent Pluto. Could someone be jealous or are other potent emotions swirling in the ether? New Year's Eve may bring them into the open.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Do you have a social event arranged? Check that everyone knows the time and place to avoid confusion. With Mercury the planet of talk and thought doing its retro dance, misunderstandings can be par for the course. Lovely Venus is also a star in this week's planetary show. You may break the ice with someone you admire, but it won't be long before deeper feelings show up.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
You may be tempted to go to the sales. And if so, be sure you really are getting a bargain. With Mercury turning retrograde, something might look like the deal of the century, but before you snap it up, make sure it is. At least keep receipts. You could also fall in love with something, leading to a strong urge to make it your own. Do you really need it? If not, you may regret buying it.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Don't put too much store on promises, as things might not go as planned. This will likely be down to Mercury doing its backward dance in your sign. It helps to be flexible to make the most of any opportunities. Venus will encourage you out and about, and this is a sterling time to connect with kindred spirits. Want something from someone? Don't be too pushy, Capricorn.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
You may be in a quiet mode, which doesn't mean you won't be busy. With the emphasis on a private zone, you'll use this opportunity to think ahead and plan for the coming year. It's a chance for a reset and the opportunity to get your bearings. There's a lot going on behind the scenes right now, and when you're ready you'll burst onto the stage in a blaze of energy.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
As Venus aligns with Neptune, make the most of this time to soak up the festive ambiance in the run up to the New Year. You're in a very sociable phase, and whether you're looking for fun, romance or to meet others who share your goals, this could be a rewarding week. Plus, with Mercury rewinding, you may connect with someone special you haven't seen in a while, Pisces.
