Go on — get or­ga­nized. This is great ther­apy for the mood swings of the sea­son and helps us to pre­pare for the New Year.

But don’t start to­day. We want the world to stand still and let us catch up with emo­tional jet lag and di­gest hol­i­day in­dul­gences un­der a sen­si­tive Pisces moon. We can rest well, but we get cranky un­der ex­pec­ta­tions.

The sun, Mer­cury, Venus, and Pluto are all now struc­tured in de­ter­mined Capricorn, so it’s hard to let go of work or the feel­ing that we should be do­ing some­thing more or dif­fer­ent.

This week­end an Aries moon nudges us into ac­tion to burn off a few hol­i­day calo­ries, but it can also spur our ar­gu­men­ta­tive and com­pet­i­tive edges. It may help to have a fam­ily project to fo­cus on — but we need to let each per­son work in their own time and style.

An earthy Taurus moon in­fuses New Year’s Eve with a com­fort­able, sen­su­ous en­ergy that en­cour­ages us to re­view the past year and or­ga­nize our­selves for a pro­duc­tive year ahead. Fri­day, Dec. 26: The mood is sen­si­tive, eas­ily over­whelmed, and soft­hearted. Morn­ing drifts and dreams as the moon con­juncts Nep­tune in Pisces. Com­mu­ni­cate con­sciously mid­day, and no­tice un­in­tended sig­nals. Tonight, re­lease ex­pec­ta­tions — but re­mem­ber to take care. Satur­day, Dec. 27: Rest­less­ness calls us to ac­tion as the moon en­ters proac­tive Aries. Re­spect in­di­vid­ual paths, and all will be well. Tonight the moon con­juncts Uranus, and our im­pulse con­trols are down. Un­ex­pected cir­cum­stances arise, and a sense of ur­gency creeps up — all this can in­ter­fere with judg­ment. Be safe. Sun­day, Dec. 28: Dog sled­ding — that’s the ticket. Peo­ple are un­co­op­er­a­tive this morn­ing, but the heart warms with a sense of ac­cep­tance this af­ter­noon as the moon trines Jupiter. Mon­day, Dec. 29: Cranky edges show this morn­ing. We have had enough of col­lab­o­ra­tive ac­tion and need to move in­de­pen­dently. Later in the day, we are happy to see and re­con­nect with one another — but keep the reins loose. Tues­day, Dec. 30: The mood is prac­ti­ca­ble and earthy, if com­pet­i­tive. Lis­ten to the per­sonal needs of health and the gen­tle call­ings of the heart. After weeks of so­cial obli­ga­tions, we need to hear our­selves. Work on prac­ti­cal things, phys­i­cal com­forts, or log­i­cal next steps, but lead by ex­am­ple rather than ad­vice. Wed­nes­day, Dec. 31: If a bit­ter­sweet qual­ity is ap­par­ent this morn­ing, it may help to honor whom or what we’ve said goodbye to this past year. We re­sist be­ing hur­ried, though a sense of ur­gency creeps in around din­ner­time as the moon squares Mars and re­minds us of ev­ery­thing we haven’t yet ac­com­plished. Com­fort mat­ters more than a wild time this New Year’s Eve. Con­nec­tion im­proves late at night as the moon trines Venus. Thurs­day, Jan. 1: After a slow, cozy morn­ing, a buzz builds mid­day as the moon en­ters Gemini. The con­ver­sa­tion grows more se­ri­ous and sub­stan­tial than we would have an­tic­i­pated as Mars op­poses Jupiter. Com­pete, not for the opin­ion of oth­ers, but with one’s per­sonal best to make this year bet­ter than last.
