SILENT NIGHT, HOLY NIGHT: The cur­rents run deep this week­end; all can be well if we can feel the quiet in­side and out. Find a way to share hearts with­out words — even more than presents. We need a mo­ment of soli­tude to process feel­ings un­der this week­end’s Scor­pio moon. We also can feel iso­lated, so let’s all bring some­one who might other­wise feel lost or alone to our din­ner ta­ble.

Mer­cury ret­ro­grade (from Dec. 19 to Jan. 8) in­creases the like­li­hood of mis­un­der­stand­ings, last minute sna­fus, and will­ful tugs of war. Kids may be feel­ing un­usu­ally pri­vate and not want to kiss strange rel­a­tives. Every­one re­sists be­ing pushed into obli­ga­tions, and our cranky re­sponse can be­come pas­sive-ag­gres­sive with Venus and Mars in Pisces.

So don’t go there. In­stead, speak with the heart and keep the agenda light. If peo­ple push and pull, feel their con­cerns and fears and cut them some slack. Walk away and take a mo­ment alone if they es­ca­late. And pad any schedule with time to lo­cate lost items, fix bro­ken things, and find the in­struc­tions.

A late din­ner on Sun­day looks like the eas­i­est time for a big fam­ily shindig. As the moon en­ters up­beat Sagit­tar­ius, it brings us out of our shell, but also can in­tro­duce out­ra­geously frank com­ments. Mars and Venus in Pisces can leave us un­usu­ally sen­si­tive, so we need to speak with a light touch.

Now through New Year’s Eve it’s im­por­tant to sus­pend the or­di­nary pace of life. The flow of en­ergy has turned in­ward, and it’s time to re­con­nect with our­selves and strengthen our bonds with beloveds. Avoid an­a­lyz­ing re­la­tion­ships; make it safe to be sen­si­tive with one an­other.

FRI­DAY, DEC. 23: Sin­gle-minded fo­cus can help us over­come ob­sta­cles and keep on track, but let’s not be more brusque than nec­es­sary, and pri­or­i­tize re­con­nec­tion with our roots, soul, and dear ones.

SATUR­DAY, DEC. 24: This could be a day for hol­i­day mir­a­cles as Saturn trines Uranus. Some­thing fun­da­men­tal can change in our world or in our souls, but the di­rec­tion it takes will be up to us. We may be ab­sorbed in our mem­o­ries on this first night of Hanukkah and Christ­mas Eve.

SUN­DAY, DEC. 25: Emo­tions are a deep river; en­joy, but don’t crowd one an­other. Feel the po­ten­tial heal­ing of love and con­nec­tive en­ergy as Venus trines ex­pan­sive Jupiter. Strange rel­a­tives, ugly sweaters, and off­beat friends will be more ap­pre­ci­ated as the moon heads into Sagit­tar­ius tonight.

MON­DAY, DEC. 26: Move and stretch to­day as the moon in ac­tive Sagit­tar­ius squares Mars. Keep an eye on world events, but bal­ance this with fam­ily work. The af­ter­noon calls for a nap or an es­capist mo­ment; tonight calls for dreaming to­gether as Mer­cury sex­tiles in­tu­itive Nep­tune.

TUES­DAY, DEC. 27: We may hit the ground run­ning and feel the need to get back to work as the sun sex­tiles Mars this morn­ing. A new sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity and or­ga­ni­za­tion kicks in this af­ter­noon; do gen­tle ground­work for next year’s dreams. WED­NES­DAY, DEC. 28: As­sess de­ci­sions made this year and take stock of which were pro­duc­tive and which were dead ends. Peo­ple are thought­ful, even grim or con­niv­ing on this strate­gic day. With self-re­spon­si­bil­ity, we can grow in wis­dom un­der a Capri­corn moon — right be­fore tonight’s new moon.

THURS­DAY, DEC. 29: Ex­pect the unexpected. It’s good to mull over the fu­ture and tempt­ing to launch a new project, but we need to wait un­til the sec­ond week in Jan­uary to ini­ti­ate the next chap­ter.
