Weekly horoscope (Dec. 22-28) 

Capricorn The Goat (Dec. 21-Jan. 19)

The new eclipse series emphasizes your need for internal order and self-reflection. You must remain true to your deepest self and maintain faith that time will yield the secular opportunities that you need. Consider hypnosis or meditation, psychotherapy, dream work or journaling as resources to help you contemplate. Solitude can be healing now. Streamlining daily routines will help you preserve time for thought.

For All Signs: On Dec. 21 we not only had the winter equinox, but also a full moon eclipse in Gemini. This is the first eclipse in this sign, but we will have more over the next couple of years. The eclipses come in pairs, accenting opposing signs. Eclipses in Gemini represent a crisis/change period for all those human affairs ruled by the sign: newspapers and other journalistic media, public education, phone companies, postal services, paper mills or other paper related manufacturers and retailers, infrastructure, traffic flow, communications and travel. Eclipses in the opposite sign, Sagittarius, bring crises concerning long-distance travel, the laws of nations, the Internet and in religious institutions. Eclipses are also personal and represent a sub-theme for approximately 18 to 20 months. See below to find what is heralded in your sign by the Gemini/Sagittarius eclipses.

Aries: Legal, ethical or educational issues will be emphasized by the eclipses of the next 18 months. Travel is punctuated, whether it be of body, mind or spirit. Exposure to those of different backgrounds or cultures opens your heart and leads you in new directions. Renewal may be necessary related to vehicles, relationships to roommates or siblings, or neighborhood. A household move may be on the way.

Taurus: The new eclipse pattern emphasizes issues of sexuality, intimacy and material accumulation. Your attitudes in these areas need renewal. Reorganization of debt and investments may be in progress. You may be more conscious than usual about existential matters related to life, death and what is on "the other side" of normal, waking consciousness. It could feel important to arrange your will or estate.

Gemini: The eclipses of this new 18-month series will draw attention to your partnerships. What is your pattern in Significant Relationships? What needs to be repaired or improved? How might you contribute to a fuller, richer life for yourself as well as the important persons in your life? It is crucial to search out solutions that favor everyone concerned. Recapitulation of old habits will simply regenerate trauma.

Cancer: It is important for the Crabs to concentrate on improvement of work-related relationships and health maintenance. Diet, exercise and improvement of physical regimen will serve you well. Honing your management systems in personal and work arenas is necessary to improve the efficiency of the daily work routine. You may become a mentor or someone coaches you.

Leo: The eclipse pattern emphasizes your progeny. Important experiences could come through your children or the results of other personally creative births. Both errors and successes in parenting and/or creative work will be revealed for all to see. The time is approaching to let go of friendships and associations that no longer serve you well. Romantic ventures will be intensely emotional and self-revealing

Virgo: Matters concerning your family are accented. Old problems in relationships, even with the deceased, are brought to consciousness for cleansing and healing. A new family member may enter the scene. Property and real estate matters also require concentration. Bringing career into alignment with your true self is an important focus. That which doesn't genuinely fit must be rearranged or eliminated.

Libra: The accent of this eclipse period is on travel, education, care of vehicles and relationships to siblings, roommates, neighbors or others who daily traverse your life. Lifelong habit patterns of thought must be reviewed and negative thinking corrected, habits of speech and communication improved. Now is the time to focus on learning new and practical life skills. Let go of outmoded belief systems.

Scorpio: It is important that you take steps to find a means to support yourself. The world around you will be encouraging and supportive as you go in that direction. Whatever you need will be accessible. Those who are already self-sustaining will probably experience a number of increases in income over the next two years.

Sagittarius: Your personal identity is the subject under consideration. Who are you becoming and who do you need to be? How do you wish to define yourself before the world? How can you develop an individual identity that is workable while simultaneously maintaining a personally rewarding relationship?

Aquarius: Involvement in your community, networking and developing friendships will be occupying a center role during the next 18 months. You have lessons to learn about discerning who is truly a friend. Those with children must concentrate on fostering those relationships. Some may decide not to have any more babies. This eclipse series may yield a critical turn in the area of love life and personal creativity.

Pisces: There will be emphasis on career, life goals and community reputation. Honors may develop in coming months if you have previously built a solid foundation. Family members plead for more attention in subtle and overt ways. Property may require repair, rejuvenation or replacement. Family patterns are changing. You may experience a sense of loss, but renewal occurs in its wake.
