From Mercury Retrograde to a Full Moon in Gemini, we've got you covered!

Your weekly horoscope is in! Aaaand... Mercury retrograde is back, and it overlaps with a Full Moon in Gemini.

Just when you thought the holiday season would be simply glorious, right? It still can be with a little help, wisdom, and advice from astrology.

This week, let's begin with an awareness that communication, no matter what form it comes in is tough to do. There are so many ways to say something. Text messaging doesn't make it easier, but if your GIF game is strong, there's help.

On December 3rd, Mercury turns retrograde. Although this fireball of a planet is really not spinning backward it creates an illusion of it. That illusion is a fabulous metaphor for us to explore when it comes to human relationships using astrology.

How many times have you noticed a conversation going south? You can almost see the words falling from your lips to the feet of the person you're speaking to. There's no stopping it. The chaos goes into slow motion.

You've got a few choices. Save your ego and protect your right to be wrong. Save their ego while nursing yours later at home after you've kicked yourself in the rear end a few times by owning up and apologizing for the next 20 years for being wrong. Or the third option, which some zodiac signs do anyway (even when it's not Mercury retrograde season): deny, deny, deny.

Mercury retrograde often gets blamed for all of these god-awful scenarios that even flood into our tech world, from missed emails (it's Mercury retrograde's fault!) to arguments with the in-laws or your boyfriend over a text message or missed phone call that was REALLY important and involved some sale or online transaction that THEY lost trying to get you to agree to the credit card charge (yikes, Mercury...damn you, retrograde!).

Yes. Sadly, these are all occurrences that we can blame on Mercury, and it's wonderful decision to mess with the planet during the holiday season. What fun!

Or we can all learn to take the high road during this week. Figure out how this wackadoo season works and how we can get control back on our side again. We're no passive forces.

We can do this. If you're wondering how to reclaim your right to be happy and let Mercury get it's own bad luck thwarted back like a boomerang, here's what to do based on your zodiac sign

But first, what can you expect to happen this week?

Here's what's happening with the planets that impact the astrological energy of all zodiac signs:

Three planets are in Libra:

  • MARS, MAKEMAKE and HAUMEA are in LIBRA until December 6th, when MARS enters the Eight House of Scorpio

Makemake and Haumea hold the fort in relationships. While Mars moves on towards intensity and identifies what exactly it means to be involved, you may find that your desires change, tuning out little matters that rob you of your time. Mars reminds us that it's not the quantity of time we spend with someone that matters but the quality of the time we share. 

The Ninth House of Sagittarius is busy this month:

  • The SUN is in the early stages of SAGITTARIUS and moves into mid-SAGITTARIUS. People may become committed to learning about themselves but they will also want to explore in order to learn from experiences. 
  • MERCURY goes RETROGRADE while in SAGITTARIUS. Holy mixed signals, Batman! What you say and what you do will require an effort to match. It's not that hypocrisy gets a license to express itself. There will be a gap between how much people have thought through what they say and how deeply the meaning is felt or acted upon. So don't make any major commitments unless you're sure. Mark your calendars and set plenty of reminders to keep yourself on point. 
  • JUPITER is in SCORPIO until November 2018. Motivation and intention expand as it influences the planet Mars. 
  • SATURN continues to transit SAGITTARIUS until December 20th. Now is the time to look into what you want to accomplish in 2018. Need a mentorship? Looking for someone to help you become more prosperous? Get a life coach or go into some kind of program that helps you improve the way you do things. Saturn loves to encourage positive thinking and Sagittarius is the House of Philosophy, so why not take advantage of it?
  • The MOON travels from TAURUS into LEO. Spoil yourself. Go ahead and explore new foods, watch movies, embrace culture and music. Let your senses have plenty of vibrant experiences.  
  • CERES is in LEO. Flashy is not trashy! Flaunt and embrace all your beauty. 
  • PLUTO is in CAPRICORN. There's more where that came from too. The House of Capricorn is busy this month, but there's plenty of work to do to support all the adventures you'll want to have. Perhaps you'll be drawn to traveling, skydiving, taking a hike somewhere. In other words, work hard - play harder! 
  • NEPTUNE and CHIRON are in PISCES. Your dreams may give you a run for your money, but that doesn't mean they aren't worth the effort. 
  • URANUS and ERIS are in ARIES. There's still a battle again tradition. Embrace it? Or change it? You decide.

Here's how these astrological and planetary energies come together:

In family, work, and career:

MARS goes retrograde while in Libra and then moves into Scorpio leaving Makemake and Haumea behind. What an interesting way to look at relationships and how motives often cause people to compartmentalize their lives.

Scorpio is the Eight House, the house of death, inheritance, rebirth, and SECRETS. Sometimes people aren't who they claim to be. At home or with friends they are one way, then when they are alone or given an opportunity a part of them comes out that's totally unexpected. 

This is a time to check yourself. Where are you different in your private life and public self? What would your family and friends think if they knew this about you? 

Since MARS and JUPITER will be in the same house, the private self will expand. You will be more aware of the way you think and if it's time to make a change in how your brain works when it comes to secrets, like addiction issues, bad habits or behaviors — things you're ashamed of (we all have them), don't worry. You get to make it up to yourself just in time for 2018. 


Conscious/Subconscious:

The MOON will be making its way through TAURUS into LEO. No two signs could be more opposite in their approach to things. Taurus views Leo as a bit wasteful with his talents. Taurus would definitely want to tell Leo to settle it down some when it comes to being flashy. Both these signs love to enjoy life.

The only difference is that the Bull charges ahead. The Lion lays around until it's time to pounce. This week, you might be all rest and little leisure, then all leisure and little rest. Very little time for balance, but you will be aware of the problem and try to reset your schedule so there's room for both.


In love, sex and relationships: 

VENUS is in SAGITTARIUS with the SUN. Too much sunshine and you can get burned. Ask any Sagittarius what makes them run for the hills in a relationship and the answer will be unanimous too much love. Well, there can never really be too much love, but there can be too many expectations in love.

This can be a strange time just before the holidays start kicking up. If you're a couple who's trying to decide which family to spend time with or a person who is pushing someone new to commit, there may be some kick back. Just warning you!

But that doesn't mean that the passion can't find a new height. Makeup sex can take on new meaning. Lovers will be more open to exploring (each other's bodies, that is). Sagittarius has a high sex drive, so don't be surprised if your libido finds a new groove.

Health, Spirituality, and Self:

SATURN, which influences karma, is in the late stage of SAGITTARIUS. If you're waiting for karma to pay some dues, step back. You're about to reap what you've sewn. If you are good, Santa won't be the only one checking the nice list. The universe may be giving gifts of coal or myrrh this month.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Power color for the week: Red

Aries, communication is super important to you. If you're feeling disconnected it's not good for the home team. When the Moon in Gemini comes into play, you'll want to find a way to improve how things are said. You might even feel like our patience is tested more than you can bear.

Expressing your ideas freely is what you do. If you find yourself left on 'read' one too many times, it may be tech problems or it could be a signal that it's time for you to talk to other people. 

Leaning in with the family at this time will give you a place to vent. Perhaps you have a friend that's like a family who understands when you need to talk.

Time may be what you're trying to save, but breathe in and relax. You've got more time to get things done. You are Aries, right? 

Change is in the air for you at this time, but it's going to feel more like a whirlwind that a slow breeze.

There's a lesson in the chaos that will last you for a long time in a way that helps bring life back into an area that you've been trying to improve.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Power color for the week: Green

Taurus, you can start this week feeling pretty confident that things will fall into place for you. Mercury retrograde or not, you are able to divide and conquer whatever comes your way. If you're working out, you'll lose weight.

If you're making plans with others, you might be tempted to pick up the bill but someone may treat you instead. Good vibes will be returned for the good you put out in the universe. So start sharing some love. 

Although the Gemini Moon may illuminate your mind in ways that can be distracting, you'll figure out how to remain focused and finish what you start. 

Spending time with friends and people close to you will be even more important this week. You get your emotional needs met with your friends and there is some catching up to do. To even your own surprise, you may be more talkative than usual. 

Expect to experience some type of healing this week before the Friday. This could be emotional or you may find that you're finally able to confront a problem head-on with the ability to see things for what they are.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Power color for the week: Yellow

Gemini, you'll spend a lot of time in your thoughts this week about life, love, relationships and even things that you didn't even think you'd think about.

Expect to be caught up in your feelings early this week and some of them may involve emotions from the past that you didn't deal with until now. You aren't one who likes to sit down and just think, you're often on the go.

Breaks between busy moments will bring some new time on your hands and it's no mistake. You might just be changing for the better because something good is coming around the corner. 

Listen to your heart and process how you feel. When the Moon is full and in your sign, more awareness will come your way, too. You could find that people have been informing of things but you didn't hear it until now.

There's a chance that there are more messages to pay attention to around you. Pay attention to signals in nature, things you're reading, and even at home. These will confirm what you know. 

This is a time of deep compassion. You may feel that others are more understanding of you, and you, in turn, are more understanding of yourself.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Power color for the week: White and silver

Cancer, you already know the benefit of spending time in your thoughts but your dreams have something to say to you this week too.

Your passions and secret desires will start to surface as they come to mind. You could find yourself realizing that you have feelings about a person, subject or project that's news to you! This new awakening will be more than powerful. Prepare to be inspired! You could find that you're in love with love and that your heart feels free, too.

In the distance, there's an opportunity that you will recognize for what it is and what it can bring to you. You may have to work hard to get there, but the seed has been planted.

At the end of the week, you are in a stronger position than you started. You might not have everything that you need to finish completed by you will have the strength to do it.

The time that you need to get things accomplished will open up to you as well. You could be getting help from some friends or family to accomplish your goals.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Power color for the week: Gold

Leo, last week, you finally had the clarity you needed and this week, it's back to think mode. You may be in the process of putting things into motion but there's a lot more to finish and you need to align energy with action.

You're definitely not without. You've got more on your plate than others could even think of carrying. Stay focused on the productivity side of things. As you do more you will notice that you have more. 

Midweek, you could be invited to do a little R&R, or perhaps you'll decide it's a good time to take a day off from work and stay indoors for a rest.

There may be some disruptions that get your feelings in a place that require you to step back to evaluate how you are feeling. Perhaps someone is filling your ear full of ideas and you want to think things through before you accept offers. 

A partnership or a relationship may be on the horizon for you. If you're already married, this relationship becomes closer and more important to your heart.

You might not allow it to define you but it will require you to spend more time thinking and communicating than usual.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Power color for the week: Green and brown

Virgo, you don't always let others see who you really are. You might find yourself playing with questions about what it means to be you. Who are you as a person? What's your identity? Then decide to take the mask off and be yourself.

There could be a body positive moment in your future or finally feeling comfortable in your own skin. This will be a moment of triumph and joy and it's a step forward from where you once were in the past. 

There's a cause for celebration this week, too. Celebrate the small milestones and the big ones. Don't ignore your accomplishments but instead, honor them.

You may find that others notice things in you that you take for granted and assume that everyone has the same abilities when they don't. This could be why you can be overly critical and others think you're being harsh. You'll find balance in perception mid-week.

At the end of the week, you'll be faced with a decision that means you'll have to say goodbye to the old and hello to something new. Although this is a great time in your life, you'll feel sad to let this time go.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Power color for the week: Pink and blue

You're spending more time thinking things through. Whether you're planning family get-togethers, setting goals, or pondering the meaning of life, you are thinking A LOT. There's so much to ponder and so many options for you at this stage in time. It's a good time for reflection. Make the most of it.

You may be showing more gentleness and affection towards others, particularly those circumstances you feel committed to.

This could be your home life, perhaps there are children in your home that need you to lessen up and be more nurturing so that they feel your love in a new way. 

Your intuition will rise this week. You recognize when there's a bridge to burn or cross. The evening will be a more intuitive time as things die down and you sense your emotions.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Power color for the week: Black

Scorpio, you have company in your house from Mars and Jupiter. This is where you feel comfortable.

You don't mind expanding your thoughts and feelings as long as you don't have to make announcements to the world. You don't. Right now isn't the best time anyway.

You may find yourself feeling more centered: in your thoughts, feelings, actions, and even your emotions. You communicate strength and hope.

There might even be something you thought you'd never see again, a person or an object, and there it is. Like magic, it appears again.

Some discernment is in your future as well. You may have been doing the whole, hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil about a situation that had you in the dumps.

Now you'll know why and maybe even get to remove this from your plate for a little while.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Power color for the week: Purple

Sagittarius, you get a new start! Sometimes you just get a lucky break in life and this week, you get yours. You could be starting a new venture, buying a new item or moving.

But the timing for a fresh start is in your hands and that's probably something you like to hear!

This week, there may be snags in communication, but you're used to navigating around other's thoughts when they don't match up with your own. 

A new beginning will have your hopes up and your ambitions in the clouds. This will be a productive and positive sign of things to come. There's truly no downside, but with great gifts come responsibility.

You will need to be sure to keep your feet on the ground and think with your heart and mind in one connected peace.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Power color for the week: Brown and gray

Capricorn, if you need to get to the heart of the matter, this week, the truth will set you free.

You could have a simple meeting of the minds or a true confrontation about a problem that needs a solution. However, you want to call it, you will see a situation for what it is full.

You won't be caught off guard or be unable to handle things. In fact, you're ready to go and this is a promising discovering that's right for you and the right timing, too.

Feelings related to trust will also be in the mix for this week. You could be in a relationship or find someone you finally feel you can trust.

Or you may now know who has your back and who you can trust. There's a growth in this journey for you and it's one that will require faith.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Power color for the week: Blue

Aquarius, everyone has a dark side to them. Everyone. Even you. Yours might not be exactly dark, maybe gray.

But there are things you don't like to see in yourself that you notice in others. Then, what happens is you don't like what you see in that person. You may find that this happens a few times this week. If it does, be thankful (after being annoyed, of course). It's an opportunity to change. You're not a closed to change, and so this is a perfect time for you to heal. 

By the end of the week, you may be on the way to a new you and starting a stage of change.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Power color for the week: Light green

Pisces, you may need to exercise a little more patience with others and even with yourself. Although it's tough to cover your eyes and ignore what you see, the problem might actually not be yours to resolve. 

You have a female guardian angel who is watching over you and keeping guard over your path.

Focus on the good things in your life and surround yourself with positive thoughts and good vibrations.
