The Moon today is in a Waxing Crescent Phase. A Waxing Crescent is the first Phase after the New Moon and is a great time to see the features of the moon’s surface. During this phase the Moon can be seen in the wester sky after the sun dips below the horizon at sunset. The moon is close to the sun in the sky and mostly dark except for the right edge of the moon which becomes brighter as the days get closer to the next phase which is a First Quarter with a 50% illumination.


This Weekend’s Love Horoscope: Let’s Get Serious

Your love horoscope for the weekend of December 22-24

Matters of the heart become more practical this weekend as Saturn’s move into Capricorn begins to hit your love life. Serious Saturn is finally back in its home sign — the last time Saturn was here was almost 27 years ago! — and will have you craving a more committed, lasting love. You may find yourself analyzing the foundations of your current or potential relationships now, to see if they’ll hold up in the long-run. Do you two have the same goals and values? Do your schedules work well together? Do you want the same things in love? If you don’t know these answers right away, it’s OK! You’ll have the next 2 1/2 years to throw these thoughts around while Saturn is in rational Capricorn.

But Saturn’s not the only planet adding a serious vibe to the weekend. The Sun has just entered Capricorn, too, and love-planet Venus will move into Capricorn on Monday. Careful Capricorn is known for being ambitious in the most practical way, and when it comes to matters of the heart, the steady Mountain Goat wants an enduring, consistent relationship with a solid foundation. These energies will leak into your love life this weekend, further encouraging you to assess the sturdiness of your current situation, and look for a practical partner with long-term goals.

Don’t worry though, it’s not all heavy news! Mercury Retrograde ends on Friday and our communicative powers will start to return. Say goodbye to the continuous misunderstandings that you and your partner or crush have been enduring. Let the right words flow as conversations between you and your lover significantly improve. You’ll be able to get a clear perspective on your love life this weekend. Ask yourself some tough love questions — you might be surprised by your heart’s answers.

The Astrology Room


ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Are you excited about Christmas Aries? You should be. What you didn’t know last year but do now, is that life is for living and that no one can stop an Aries from doing what they want to do.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Don’t let them tame you Taurus, but work on being the best version of you there can be this Christmas month. Time spent telling tales on others is wasted. Try to work on bringing who you love together for next week.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun, but that doesn’t mean that you have to do what you don’t want to. Relationships come under the spotlight and you find it possible to make peace with someone from your past.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
Unexpected gifts or acts of kindness come your way and you begin to see who is on your side and who has been working against you. Make time for an older face you have been ignoring. They have news you’ll want to hear!

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Slow down in relationships my friend, or you are going to end up missing all the fun. If you can pay more attention to the simple things in life, then you will be in with a chance of finding what true happiness means.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
Try not to hesitate when you are asked questions this week, instead try to speak from the heart. It’s how you will find out who you really are and what you really want.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
The stars bring out a more psychic side to your nature and you find it possible to make amends in situations which you were just about ready to give up on. Time spent on facts and figures can save you money and reputation.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Of course it hurts if you lay your heart on the line and it gets stamped on. What you have to realise from here on in though, is that if you place your emotions before those who are not worthy, of course they’ll take advantage.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Travel is well starred and any trips you make to see those you love between now and the New Year will be greatly appreciated and enjoyed. Being on time tonight can make all the difference to a yes or no answer.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Go slow with new relationships in your life which are taking shape. It would be in your interests to let others speak while you listen. It can show you a way of living which may be a better path for you.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
There is a naughty feel to your chart which could well see you saying and doing things that could upset the coming Christmas week. Know how far is too far to go. You’ve worked too hard to fall back now.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
There is an immature feel to your chart which could see you saying and doing things just to get a reaction from those who have upset you. Be stronger than that and remember you’re a Pisces. Talking about what you really want today moves mountains.


If You Were Born Today, December 22

You are an emotional person who is very connected to your past. You are exceptionally giving and supportive, sometimes to the point of martyrdom! You have to try not to feel resentful for all that you do for others by keeping this trait in balance. You would make an excellent counselor. Your love life is likely very changeful. You are extremely hard-working and few can do the job as well as you. Sometimes you are impatient with others who don’t seem to have the same work ethic as you, but you must understand that few do! You can be a perfectionist. You are a wonderful combination of conservative and creative or inspired. Famous people born today: Diane Sawyer, Vanessa Paradis, Robin Gibb, Maurice Gibb, Ralph Fiennes.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

With the Sun and Moon in a waxing semi-square at the time of your birthday this year, the period ahead is one of new initiatives and action. You possess quite a bit of energy, but you must be aware that emotions color much of what you do this year. It can be hard to be objective as a result.

This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.

Transiting Uranus forms a trine to your Sun this year, and exciting (not jarring) changes and new interests characterize this period. It’s easier than usual to express your unique individuality, and if this involves changing careers or jobs, a new love affair, or an entirely new hobby, it’s something that takes you forward into unexplored territory. You are more willing to adapt to new circumstances, ideas, and unfamiliar situations. It’s a good time to join organizations and groups and to attend meetings or social events. You are quick to find creative solutions to problems now. Flexibility is the key to success under this influence.

Relationships may be stabilized and steady this year, or there can be a new sense of realism in existing partnerships. A sense of duty may lead you to sacrifice a personal pleasure for a cause or for a loved one; thus there could be times when you have to abstain from personal gratification for the time being. Financial discipline, realism, and maturity are possible during this period of your life. You are more conservative when it comes to spending, whether this is because circumstances are such that you need to penny pinch, or you are simply more realistic about your finances.

However, you’re also in a great position to creatively combine traditional and progressive approaches to relationships this year. For example, relationships that are on-off may stabilize or alternative setups can thrive.

Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or you could enjoy a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships.

Err on the side of caution if offers arrive that seem too good to be true. Some confusion or possibly deception could arise in communications this year, and you may be skipping important details without even realizing it.

You are imaginative, creative, and communicate warmly and considerately. This is a good time for both teaching and learning, and for expressing feelings. Researching cooking, health, and nutrition can be fruitful now. It’s also a strong time for marketing.

This is a strong year for spirituality and commitment to spiritual or metaphysical goals. Higher learning, mind expansion, or travel can also be in focus and very rewarding.

In your relationships, you may be feeling pleasantly attached, finding it natural and easy to nurture and support people in your life. However, you’re also quite willing to try new ways of relating and you’re more inclined to venture out socially or try new things. You’re in a good position for social meetings and events. You have a taste for the offbeat this year, and this energy can bring sudden or unexpected romance into your life. This may be more of a year of experimenting than committing.

Making connections with others from a different background is likely to figure in the year ahead, or widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. Generosity and compassion increases and your faith is boosted. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the better good.

Your personality is sparkling this year, which is sure to attract new circumstances and people into your life. This is an excellent year for new ideas and projects. You’re in good shape for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities, but also for tuning into new and progressive ideas. This is also a great period for a more mature approach to finances or relationships.

2017 is a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.

2018 will be a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, December 23, 2017

The Astrology Room


ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

You enter this Christmas week on a high, as you discover how much a certain sign really thinks of you. You’ll have no reason not to enjoy this festive month better than ever before. Buy an extra gift. You’re going to need it when you see who’s turning up. Talks you have socially about your career show you a new opening you had not previously noticed.


TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Confrontations you have been dreading can and will actually turn out to be a good thing. You realise that you were in control all along, even though you thought you weren’t. Those involved were just waiting for the chance to show you this fact. Christmas Eve promises to put you in the path of someone you’ve really missed.


GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

If close ones are asking you for promises and commitments you don’t really want, then talk to them Gemini. You have spent far too long in recent weeks and months worrying about things, but not actually doing anything about them. Freedom is yours if you ask for it. You’ve just forgotten how to take control.,


CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

Stop worrying about what has happened in the past and instead take control over what is going on in the here and now. Try to sit down and do your sums before Christmas day, as offers will be coming your way you’re going to want to take, but you are going to need to know your financial status to accept them.


LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

You are so much stronger than you think Leo. This festive week will prove this fact as you begin to take the lead in areas of your life you usually give others control in. Your ruling planet the Sun, helps you to get back on track over Christmas with those you have grown distant from. Phone calls bring you an apology boxing day.


VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

You don’t mean to offend those you love, but if someone buys you a gift you don’t really want, then your disapproval is likely to be written all over your face. Try to deal with what is really on your mind before Monday, so you can make this Christmas one worth really celebrating.


LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

There is a really naughty feel to your chart, which could see you doing the opposite of what people ask just to make a statement. Know how far is too far to go my friend, or you will only end up undoing all of the repair work you did in November. I know you miss someone who is not around and this seems to be the source of your behaviour.


SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

Problems which you think have got the better of you this Christmas are actually nothing more than a storm in a teacup. You finally start to focus on having fun from Sunday. You realise that others can’t control your decisions and actions this week, but you can and you will. Last minute changes to Christmas day bring relief and pleasure.


SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

The hard times you went through in recent months have only served to make you stronger Sagittarius. You use this Christmas to show thanks and to feel grateful for all that is now going right with your life. Don’t be afraid to say no to those who invite you out if you don’t want to spend time with them. This is your week to relax and not just for others to enjoy.


CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

You gave so much loyalty to those who gave you nothing but disrespect in return. It has taken you a long time to make sense of what happened over the last three months, but I know and you will soon, that you have come out of everything a better person. You’re emotionally richer and decisions you make Christmas and Boxing Day prove this.


AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

You want to back out of something you committed to, but you are not quite sure how to do so, are you Aquarius. Luckily for you, those involved have already picked up on your feelings and will be making such decisions easy for you. The need to tell others’ secrets on Boxing day must be resisted.


PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

Advice you both give and take in the week ahead can help you to shape your life so it is more suited to your needs. It may be Christmas week, but you still seem to have your professional head on and you will be taking steps to shape your career ideas ready for the New Year. A delay on a legal dealing is actually a blessing. Ring now for more on this very memorable time.
