WEEKLY HOROSCOPES: Dec. 19-25, 2016
Welcome to Galore horoscopes, where we’ll advise you on whether to expect drama, chill vibes, hot sex, or all of the above over the coming week.
Peep your sign’s seven-day forecast, starting Monday and ending the following Sunday, below. Pro tip: instead of your sun sign, make sure to read your rising sign as it’s far more accurate.
Christmas brings gifts. If there is a job you didn’t get, now would be the best time to ask for a second chance. Witty Mercury in retrograde motion in your 10th house of career helps you to reboot. If you started a project or business some time ago and want to get back at it, the energy of clever Mercury will help you to finish and most importantly, improve it. With all this planetary focus in your 10th house of career, you should rework your whole reputation.
Mercury retrograde helps us improve. What have you been neglecting? What has been blocking your path to your dream career? Think, Aries! Take time before taking a career move decision. Don’t act impulsively. As a matter of fact, you might get rewarded by your boss through some work you have done in the past, but people were too busy to acknowledge it. Mars your ruler will move into your 12th house of the unconscious.
A lot of passive aggressive energy could be stirred up. The thing is, you won’t quite know why, since the 12th house also holds the secrets you mostly hide… even from yourself. I suggest you do some Tai Chi instead of Yoga — get that inner warrior out. Release the negative emotions inside of you and open up your heart chakra to let your energy flow.
Mercury is turning retrograde in your ninth house of the higher mind. This is a crucial time for you to rethink your beliefs. Does Santa really exist? Now is the prime time to rewrite that blog post. Reevaluate your ideas about what faith is to you. If you are traveling abroad, make sure you’ve got travel insurance.
Mercury retrograde can be super annoying. Get to the airport on time or even earlier than usual. Flights may be delayed or even get canceled. It could also be a time now where you reconsider going back to school. Maybe you look into preparing a summer intensive now? You are a happy learner. Look at the bigger picture and all the options you have. Go-getter Mars will be wrapping up its journey through your 10th house of career.

Also, joint resources with your partner should be reassessed. It’s not the best time to invest. Don’t take out a loan.
Sexually, the planets will really help you now, to have a smooth talk with your sweetie about what you like and what you don’t like in the bedroom. We can not always guess what our partner is into. Sharing your deep fantasies could improve your relationship all over. You’ll feel reborn and most importantly it’s a whole lot of fun. You and your partner can dive into the subconscious of your relationship and renew those unspoken deals.
This week, Mercury turns retrograde in your 7th house of other people. Old relationship issues that were simply swept under the carpet could resurface now. You and your love are forced to talk it out, finally. Cancers can be needy but give a lot. They expect you to sense if they are upset or unhappy. It’s not always that easy. Communicate verbally with your partner, so you guys know what is actually going on. The relationship can only benefit from it. I’m not saying it might be pleasant, at first, but thanks to Mars make up sex could turn everything around.
Warning: Don’t get married during Mercury retrograde. Or if everything is planned already make sure to renew your vows when Mercury is direct again!
If single, Mercury retrograde could be bringing back ex-lovers and unfinished business. Hot. It’s a pretty social month for you for love and sex.

Flip back and review — get out of your rut. Trickster planet Mercury is turning retrograde in your sixth house of order and health.

You will really feel the urge to change your furniture around. Don’t buy anything new rather use what you have and redecorate. Go bonkers — change it all.

Make sure to backup all of your files and if you happen to have no screen protector for your phone go get it NOW. Transport can also be affected. Make sure to get that travel insurance. Check appointment times. If you’re a writer triple check your spelling. If you’re writing a book stop and rethink. Maybe rewrite that whole chapter. It would be a super sweet time, though, to reconnect with your siblings.

With Mercury in your 2nd house of finances, you will want to go shopping and indulge, especially during this holiday season, I feel you, but the Planets want you to wait.

Rethink some situations from the past, did it really happen the way you remember it or are you exaggerating?
