Your Horoscope For This Week — Dec 06 2015

Illustrated by Lynnie Zulu.
Who wants to be a millionaire? Those Champagne wishes and caviar dreams aren't just the birthright of a certain outrageously insensitive Republican candidate. From Wednesday until January 1, messenger Mercury cruises through Capricorn, the zodiac's tycoon sign. Our thoughts turn to ending the year on a profitable note — and with some business contacts locked in, to boot. Let those holiday soirees double as networking events, because you never know who you'll be standing next to at the chocolate fountain or open martini bar. #BringCards

And while travel warnings have been issued, this jet-setting new moon inspires us to (safely) explore new corners of the globe. Grab that passport and go forth!

Money management time! Not to harsh your gift-shopping spree, but messenger Mercury will spend the next two weeks in your budget-friendly second house, encouraging you to live leaner and curate your selections with greater care. It’s easy to get swept up in excess — especially as the sale racks and displays get more and more tempting. Make a list and check it thrice before you hit the mall or do your online shopping. But don't go Scrooge on 'em, either. Better to invest in one luxe item or "investment piece" than a zillion tchotchkes. And if you can, set aside fund for an investment piece, like a timeless bag or perfectly tailored leather jacket that will stay current for years.

And no need to wait until Janaury 1 to pop the cork on that Armand de Brignac. Your astrological New Year arrives on Friday, when the only new moon in Sagittarius of 2015 electrifies the skies. Carve out some weekend time to make wishes, set intentions, and map out personal goals you’d like to achieve in 2016. We don’t have to remind you to dream big, Sagittarius — but make sure you’re wishing for the things YOU really want, not just the visions that other people have for your happiness.

Tell them how you really feel, Capricorn — as if anyone has to twist your arm. On Monday, expressive Mercury zips through your sign until January 1, making a silver-tongued devil out of you. Use those powers of persuasion to forward one of your personal ambitions. Warning: Easy does it with the tell-it-like-it-is tough love. The blow of your truth hammer will be harsh for the next two weeks, so make a point of being more sensitive to people’s feelings.

On Friday, the new moon in Sagittarius gives your transitional 12th house one last hit for the season. Do a clean sweep of your space, removing all the "soooo 2015" clutter — which, naturally you will NOT replace with more disposable crap, right? And as you look ahead to your sparkling 2016, you may realize that there are a few scary leaps that you have no idea how to take. This new moon shines a light on mentors, coaches, and consultants who can guide you along your path; therapists, energy workers, and shamans, too, so don’t rule out the woo-woo. Reach up for support and you’ll quickly catch your stride! Let "Santa" know that you'd be down for a few private yoga classes or a session with that raw food nutritionist — gifts that will keep on giving.

Summon those unicorns, "magickal" creatures, and a spiritual guide, too. Your rational nature goes on hiatus for the rest of 2015, as messenger Mercury cruises through your 12th house of fantasy until January 1. Stop trying to make sense of everything, Aquarius, and give your soulful imagination and creativity some airtime. Getting in tune with the muse (or your spiritual side) requires being still and quieting your mind. Try journaling, meditating, or listening to music to get into that artsy flow. Have you been holding a grudge against a loved one? 'Tis the season for forgiveness, Aquarius — at least if it's deserved. If the offense wasn’t a dealbreaker, extend the olive branch. It’s time to let bygones be bygones.

Friday's new moon in Sagittarius and your 11th house connects you to kindred spirits. Tap the social vibes of the season to explore new scenes and cultural activities in your hometown. Don that entertainment director's hat, too. This new moon makes you "crew glue" for the rest of the month, so start organizing group hangouts, parties, and even a NYE getaway with your squad. Since the 11th house rules technology, this is a stellar week for updating your digital devices, launching a website or blog, or purchasing new computer equipment. Remember: you have six months to manifest these lunar gifts, so if nothing else, just plant some seeds for that app or e-commerce site now — like buying a domain name or sketching out some wireframes. Then, sit down with the developers (or that tutorial) in early 2016.

Want to end 2015 more popular than a Kardashian-Jenner? (Or, uh, something like that...) Your approval ratings are bound for the heavens, thanks to social Mercury’s move into your electric 11th house until January 1. But you don't actually need to be BFFs with anyone and everyone. Seek out the artists, activists, and thought leaders for an intellectually stimulating boost. Since you'll be dressing up so much anyway, don't forget to snap those selfies or even pose for some new profile pics. This Mercury cycle appoints you social director for your squad, too. Don't feel obligated to play host, though — you'll have more fun purchasing group tickets and getting out on the town.

Friday’s new moon in Sagittarius and your 10th house of success could bring another feather for your cap. Don't wait until January 1 to write out your professional resolutions. Where do you want to land over the coming six months? Write out a wishlist; make a vision board. Word of a new job opportunity — or a chance to ascend the ladder by filling someone else’s Chelsea boots — could arrive. Jump on it! You’ll be motivated to make a bigger name for yourself in your industry, too. Clear the decks of distracting tasks by delegating, outsourcing, or just calling it quits on unfulfilling projects. Then, concentrate on one major goal that can boost your career game — and your bank balance — by mid 2016. A leadership role has “Pisces” written all over it.

Goals! Goals! Goals! With messenger Mercury cruising through your career zone for the rest of the year, you’re already obsessed with talking about your 2016 resolutions. Surround yourself with those MVP movers and shakers; strategically seat yourself next to the boss at the office holiday party. As the expression goes, your network is your net worth. Having friends in high places can light the way to your own success. Get a couple power lunches scheduled, too. You could be sealing those deals before 2015 is through. Men will be the star players of this Mercury cycle, so jump on the chance to bond with the boys.

Friday’s new moon in Sagittarius awakens your wanderlust. Thought you'd just stay home for the holidays? Yawn...boring! A change of scenery always refreshes your perspective. So even if you can't island hop for Hanukkah or go on a cruise for Kwanza, how about squeezing in some weekend getaways or an overnight (or three) by the year's end? If nothing else, start planning your next big pilgrimage. La luna could kickstart a cool, entrepreneurial venture, too; or, you could hit on the idea for a media project that you develop over the next six months. This new moon may inspire some Aries to go back to school or to enroll in teacher training, so you can share your storehouse of knowledge.

Visions of Balinese beaches dancing through your head? Wanderlust hits you hard this week as social Mercury heads into Capricorn and your ninth house of travel and freedom until New Year's Day. Forget waiting to go home to the holidays. A change of scenery will revive you NOW — and help you keep your cool, should family drama bubble up later in the month. Choose your own adventure: Couchsurf with friends in a sister city or organize a ski house share with your squad. The truth serum will be flowing liberally now and you cannot tell a lie. Temper your words with extra tact, so your message doesn’t get lost in translation. Got dreams of becoming the next Lohanthony? This Mercury phase governs your media sector so plant your flag — and your vlog — in the online world.

On Friday, the new moon in Sagittarius reminds you not to throw the baby out with the bathwater — especially when it comes to love. One relationship in particular could get ultra serious now so clear out a drawer for bae or get yourself sized for an engagement ring. Presently unattached? You could meet a shimmering prospect who has “The One” written all over ‘em. Pace yourself: If the bond is legit, it will develop organically over the next six months. The quiet ones will surprise you this weekend, so if you're intrigued by that brooding boy or adorably geeky girl, nudge 'em a little to see if they'll open up.

Magnetism doesn't even begin to describe your superpowered charm for the next three weeks, Gemini. On Monday, your cosmic ruler Mercury slinks into your seductive and powerful eighth house until New Year's Day, making you utterly irresistible. Your wish is the universe's command now, so be crystal clear about your desires. Why not get exactly what you want instead of a compromised, watered-down version? Make a wish list or a vision board. A pictures says a thousand words. Attachment alert! Your feelings will run deeper than usual now, so don't waste time on people who don't take you seriously. The green-eyed monster could pay you a visit, too. Keep jealousy in check and get the facts before you react.

Friday’s new moon in Sagittarius reminds you that originality is your calling card. Despite the legacy of Geminis Angelina Jolie and Kanye West, you don’t want to lose your identity to be half of some mashed-up portmanteau! (Sorry Brangelina and Kimye...) If you’re single, you could meet some promising prospects while you're out feting the season. Just remember: Find a mate who helps you shine brighter, instead of expecting you to stand in their shadow. Coupled Geminis get a reminder that developing your individual interests only makes you a stronger, happier partner — as long as you don’t go AWOL on the one you adore!

Compromise, cooperate, collaborate: On Monday, messenger Mercury heads for your partnership zone until January 1 and puts you in your element. There are few things you love more than joining forces with the people you love. Take the initiative to get those dynamic duos in motion, both romantically and platonically. Cupid is definitely in your corner with Mercury here, blessing you with above average flirting skills. But you’re playing for keeps — or at least for longer than just a weekend hookup. Talking through the problems in an existing relationship will be a lot easier with Mercury here. Give up the preaching and ask questions, instead. The answers will surprise you. If your mojo’s been in slow-mo, look out world: The Cancer minx is back!

On Sunday, the new moon in Sagittarius lights up your sixth house of work and well-being. Give your body some love — which might mean taking a little breather from the cookie trays. And since resistance to all treats is futile (and a buzzkill at this time of year) try popping a probiotic to aid with gut health and keep your immune system in top shape. Got a few office-related boxes to tick before 2015 is through? This new moon brings a surge of motivation to plow through those tasks. Resolve now to put an end to playing the office martyr role in 2016. If you need some support staff or more pay, put in the request early next week or get an early January performance review on the calendar.

Grab the label maker and the glue gun, Leo. The DIY doyenne in you takes the wheel for the next two weeks as crafty Mercury moves into your sartorial sixth house. Check out the makers in your area for inspiration — and some truly original holiday gifts. Even if you’re not giving everything a handmade touch, curate with greater care. Opt for labels like sustainable, locally grown, organic, and cruelty-free. This Mercury phase gets you back on the healthy living wagon, too. Download apps to help you organize meals and track fitness. Structure paves the way for success.

Friday’s new moon in Sagittarius brings a brimming cup of courage — and the motivation to get your name in lights. #AlmostFamous isn’t going to cut it for you...not that it ever has, Leo. Over the coming six months, what will it take to see your name on the marquee or on a prominent roster? The seeds you plant this week could blossom by summer of 2016. Cupid’s in your corner, too, so open your heart and give him a clear shot. A new romantic interest could pop up this weekend or you could add an exclusivity clause to a casual dating situation. Not ready to settle down? Let the romantic renaissance begin! #SoManyDatesSoLittleTime

Don ye now that eye-catching apparel. Messenger Mercury heads into Capricorn and your fifth house of fame and flamboyance until January 1, making you quite the attention-getter. Shameless PDA? No problem. Ignore the cries of "Get a room!" and show the world what real romance looks like. Single? Brush aside worries of being “too much” or “pressuring” anyone and let your interest be obvious. The right person for you will appreciate your unabashed attraction. Get the glam squad on the line, too, and give your style a crisp winter upgrade. Then, load up the ‘grams and record the Periscopes. If you've got it, you might as well flaunt it.

On Friday, there will be a new moon in Sagittarius and your domestic fourth house, awakening your nesting instincts. If you haven't summoned the season's family-oriented spirit, you certainly will by the weekend. But are there still a few relatives or close friends with whom you want to make amends? Schedule a sit-down before the week wraps to clear the air and hug it out. If it’s time to relocation, you could land that lucky listing under these moonbeams. Powerful women pop up, too, and you could meet an amazing female mentor, someone who opens up new worlds of opportunity for you. Let’s hear it for the girls!

Check your EQ, Libra — your emotional intelligence, that is. Until January 1, expressive Mercury is swirling through your sensitive, soulful fourth house, guiding you to pay more attention to feelings. You might brush them off and just keep yourself super busy at work, or even avoid people who bring “drama.” But maybe, just maybe, they are trying to connect to you on a deeper level? It’s a lot easier to be compassionate to others when you are extending that courtesy to yourself. Swaddle yourself in support from family, girlfriends, even a therapist or coach. It’s time to respect the wisdom that comes not just from your mind, but from your heart as well. Let both have an equal vote.

On Friday, the new moon in Sagittarius awakens your curiosity — and your inner culture vulture. Thought you'd skip all those tree lightings, holiday concerts, and community theater performances of The Nutcracker? Guess again. Reload your December events calendar and embrace your status as the zodiac's social butterfly. You might even be inspired to explore a new subject of interest or find a hobby that appeals to you. Put those guitar lessons or the glass-blowing workshop on your list for Santa Kindred spirits flock in, too. Someone you meet over the weekend could become a true BFF over the coming six months.

Come on out of that girl cave, Scorpio. Supersocial Mercury flutters into your friendly third house until January 1 blessing you with “life of the party” status for the rest of 2015. With your killer wit and seductive charm, you're far more than a sexy ornament, Scorpio. This Mercury phase makes you more vocal than secretive — and people will love hearing your sharp and candid thoughts. Variety is the spice of your social life now so mingle with new people and open up your guest list a bit No need to wander too far from home base though. The local scene is where you’ll discover the gems now. You could even start up a new scene in the process.

While most people aren't in work mode in December, don't lift your nose TOO far from the grindstone. News of a plum job or dream assignment could arrive near Friday’s new moon in Sagittarius. Looking for a professional upgrade? Whether it’s a promotion or a paycheck from a different company, put the word out to your social network. Friends may know just the position for you. Or, schedule a sit-down with corporate to discuss next-level opportunities within your current 9-5 gig. Because this is a NEW moon, you have six months to manifest its gifts. But what can you do to plant seeds now? It's not too late to squeeze in one more impressive achievement before the year wraps.
