The Stars This Week: December 16-22, 2013
Expect the Unexpected!

Plan on a week of surprises as Uranus turns direct during a full Moon in Gemini on December 17! Then, a new season begins -- along with a new chapter for you -- as the Sun enters practical Capricorn on December 21, marking the Winter Solstice. Also on December 21, you begin an important review of your commitments and relationships as love planet Venus turns retrograde in Capricorn.

December 17: Full Moon in Gemini
Just when you thought life might calm down, this information-loaded full Moon also sees Uranus turn retrograde, bringing unexpected news that will prompt you to take a second look at your plans. Although you may feel overwhelmed by the rapid pace of this week, it can also move you out of situations that have become stale or outmoded. People are extra-emotional now, and much of what they say is contradictory. What should you do? Slow down and carefully review all your scraps of data. Once you see the whole picture for what it is, you'll know what to do. Until then, don't overreact!

December 17: Uranus turns direct
Each year, Uranus turns retrograde and then, months later, direct. During these changes in direction, conditions are unpredictable and occasionally explosive. It's like everything that's been getting ready to change, does -- and quickly! The best way to handle this dynamic energy is to be ready for it. Think of the areas of your life you'd like to change, then open yourself to how these improvements can manifest. Still, take care to not be impulsive or careless; instead, remain thoughtful so you can handle this time with grace as you look down the road ahead. If you can be flexible, you'll encounter wonderful opportunities and experiences.

December 21: The Sun enters Capricorn
Set aside quiet time to reflect upon the past year and count your blessings as the Sun enters earthy Capricorn, an event that marks the Winter Solstice. This is also a great time to get a plan together and prepare for the year ahead. What are your goals? What do you want to accomplish? The ambitiousness of this sign will help you make headway. Just be sure to tread carefully, as you'll receive strong, but contradictory messages once the Sun contacts Mars, Uranus, and Pluto later this month and next! Like the mountain goat that scales high peaks, you'll succeed and reach your own summit if you remain determined and simply put one foot in front of the other.

December 21: Venus turns retrograde
As Venus begins its reverse motion, don't be surprised if someone from your past contacts you! Indeed, whenever the love planet begins its review (something that happens every 542 days), it's a chance for you to take care of unfinished business in matters of the heart. Venus entered Capricorn on November 5 and, due to its retrograde, won't leave this sign until March 5, 2014 -- a long time for Venus to spend in a single sign! However, this review can be invaluable when it comes to the continued growth of a relationship. Capricorn is very focused on commitment, making this a perfect time to think about who you want to keep in your life. Plan on reviewing your relationships until Venus turns direct on January 31, 2014. If you know your birth chart well, examine the house through which Venus is transiting to learn more.
