Family life is liable to be tension-filled at times during the week following the December 24 Moon in Capricorn, your solar fourth house. Relatives could be the source of stress, so this isn’t the best year to invite them to visit for the holidays or to visit your hometown. You’ll also want to check your home for mechanical problems, which could be weather-related. The December 10 Moon (lunar eclipse) in Gemini, your solar ninth house, triggers your curious mind and a desire for knowledge. Satisfy it by stocking up on books and researching topics of interest on the Internet. Or take a class to learn more about a subject that’s always intrigued you. The week of the Moon is also favorable for touching base with faraway friends or visiting one. Mercury turns direct in Sagittarius, your solar third house, on the 13th, after which you can easily clear up any recent misunderstandings. Your social life benefits from Venus in Aquarius, your solar fifth house, from the 20th on. Spending time with your children and a hobby is both relaxing and inspirational. If you’re single, a chance encounter near the 21st could be the start of a romance. For couples, Venus will spark unforgettable moments and possibly a few delightful surprises. Your career life perks along this month with business as usual. A year-end bonus or a nice gift from a relative could arrive near the 22nd when the Capricorn Sun is favorably aligned with Jupiter in Taurus, your solar eighth house of money. Treat yourself or your home to something special and save the rest.
