Rockie Weekly Horoscope December 1-7


General Forecast

Disruptive Uranus in chaotic Pisces and the Sagittarius sun form a problematic square this weekend which may surprise us all. The seriousness of the depressing Mercury-Saturn square on Monday competes with the excitement generated by the communicative Gemini full moon. The message: get over it! On Tuesday Saturn in Leo turns retrograde for its customary four-month winter hibernation while Mars enters Sagittarius for the first time in two years. On Wednesday, loving Venus offers her support to recently subdued Saturn as chatterbox Mercury finally leaves silent but deadly Scorpio for Sagittarius’ pontificating, hi-jinks and jokes. ‘Tis the season . . .


Aries: Mar. 20 – Apr. 19The pace picks up while your courageous Mars ruler travels through adventurous Sagittarius, a trip it hasn’t taken since January 2005. The current visit lasts from the 5th to mid-January, not enough time to make a long-lasting impression, but enough to get some ventures underway. Primary among them is a chance to be involved with a money-making enterprise that arises when Mars merges with prosperous Jupiter around the 11th. In, of all places, that part of your chart that connects to other people’s money. Interesting.

Taurus: Apr. 20 – May 20

Money might not be your chief concern this holiday season, but you and your loved ones won’t be able to ignore the fact that your Venus ruler is about to reveal what you really truly want and how much you fear getting it. Trepidation, greed, jealousy, revenge—an entire sackful of gripping emotions could be released when Pluto in your Sagittarius house of financial affairs embraces the goddess. High drama, for sure, but thankfully short-lived; Venus shifts into pragmatic, earth-bound Capricorn on the 10th.

Gemini: May 21 – Jun. 20

After spending nine long weeks in Scorpio, your Mercury ruler finally shifts into Sagittarius on the 7th. Since this transit is significantly shorter—less than 3 weeks—make sure you follow through on every opportunity to connect meaningfully with the folks you meet during this time. Since there are so many planets (i.e., people) in your marriage house vying for your attention, you might not allow sufficient time for each to show case their unique assets. Seriously, this much partnership potential is a rarity; make the time.

Cancer: Jun. 21 – Jul. 22

While other signs figure out how to get more time off around the holidays, Moon Children will find they have more work this month than usual. That’s because so many planets are moving into your Sagittarius house of services rendered. If, along the way, you wind up with an adorable puppy or kitten, relax. The relationship between you and your pet is the sort of stuff covered by the sixth house of your solar chart. Also paying off a debt, seeing a health professional before the new deductible kicks in—you get the drift.

Leo: Jul. 23 – Aug. 22

This week the winds of change can throw you somewhat off course as you attempt to make the necessary adjustments. Most of those will take place at home, among the holiday decorations and non-stop family requests. However, because Saturn in your sign turns inward on the 5th, retrograde for the next four months, there’s a chance that the proud, shiny Lion will retire to its den and hide its golden luster until spring. Conversely, any doubts you have about yourself (Saturn sows fear and loathing) could be put to rest for the duration.

Virgo: Aug. 23 – Sep. 22

Spreading yourself thin during the holiday season might not be as difficult as it sounds. Despite efforts to limit your party-going, there is a convergence of planetary energies in the zone that deals with coming and going and hanging out. Short-distance travel may be more appealing this year than the long-distance kind, particularly after your Mercury ruler hooks up with other planets in high-stepping Sagittarius. Wordmeisters: take a bow when clever Mercury teams up with wise Jupiter around the 10th.

Libra: Sep. 23 – Oct. 22

While many will be busy with friends and family during the next few weeks, others will be hauling in the shekels. Or, if not money per se, then the things it will buy. You can’t help the fact that this time of year the net worth of your assets increases as does the importance of your value system. Something you took for granted two weeks ago may suddenly seem very precious. However, in the midst of this pretty picture, there lurks a green-eyed monster. No matter whether it belongs to a relative or a neighbor, the little guy insists on be dealt with.

Scorpio: Oct. 23 – Nov. 21

The last thing a Scorpio needs to hear is that there’s another fit of jealousy in the works. Some may feel it’s simply their deep, undying love bubbling to the surface; others might see the annual conjunction of romantic, artistic Venus with your Pluto co-ruler as license to act out in the most dramatic manner, short of murder, they can get away with. This being the season of forgiveness, as well as wretched excess, why not push the envelope while you can? By the way, with so many planets in Sagittarius, there’s mucho money to be made.

Sagittarius: Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

If you read for all the other signs, you’ll get a better idea of the impact you’re having on them and their holiday. Everyone, not just lucky you, is adjusting to the influx of planets in Sagittarius and learning how that massive amount of energy can manifest in their lives. It may take a few days, even weeks, to notice how this power surge is affecting you personally, so be sure to track the forecast for your rising sign as well as your sun sign. Since lovable Venus moves on to Capricorn on the 10th, romance should be your first priority.


Capricorn: Dec. 22 – Jan. 20Sooner than you think, specifically the evening of the 10th, you might discover that you’re a much sweeter, kinder, even a more attractive person than you are today. That’s because seductive, sociable and eminently amenable Venus enters Capricorn on that date. Until then, what’s a romantic-realist to do but wait in the wings or, better still, hang with folks who simply want to have fun? The more of them that are comedic Centaurs and stage-stealing Lions, the easier you’ll be distracted; perhaps you’ll meet a potential lover, too.

Aquarius: Jan. 21 – Feb. 18

Probably no other sign was as affected by the recent full moon as you. Why? Because it’s the only lunation that takes place in your Gemini house of romance and creative projects, an area that hasn’t seen a lot of activity lately. Spring is usually a more conducive time for singing Aquarian love-songs; however it wouldn’t hurt to focus during the holidays on those things that fill your heart and lighten your spirit. Meanwhile Saturn turning retrograde should put partnership problems on the back burner for the next four months.


As if the holidays aren’t stressful enough, Fish are being encouraged to think far outside their comfortable boxes, courtesy of the crowd of free-wheeling, freedom-loving planets in Sagittarius, all six of them! Some planets are encouraging you to visit faraway places or to take courses in arcane subjects. Some are manipulating your career choices or putting pressure on senior members of your family. If necessary, feel free to yell your head off if you get mad enough. Also, to put plans into motion for your next big adventure.
