As the year comes to a close, this final week of 2018 has all the right ingredients for an exciting and memorable time.
Only a couple of moments may occur where we may find some miscommunication—like on Christmas Eve when Mercury and Neptune have a bit of a tiff. But it will all turn out well on the 25th, when we have a beautiful Moon/Jupiter trine in fire, which brings out the big kid in everyone—as it should this time of year.
Mars changes signs and heads into Aries just in time to ring in the New Year with lots of energy and renewed passion, so there could be more than just fireworks in the sky, regardless of whether you’re single or taken.
Read on for what this last week of the year has in store for you, courtesy of expert astrologer Suzie Kerr Wright. Happy Holidays and have an abundant New Year!
Aries: March 20–April 20
Everyone's a critic, but you won't care. You've got things to do and people to see. Don't take an offhanded comment to heart or you'll be brooding all week. You've got loads of energy to handle all the last-minute holiday tasks like a boss. With Mars in your sign for the next few weeks, be mindful that you’re a powerful force so consider others feelings. Your resolution: Build on what you've achieved.
Taurus: April 20–May 21
You've worked incredibly hard all year, and this week, with just a few adjustments, you will be able to take some time for yourself. You may overindulge a bit so try to keep a handle on the celebrations. It's time for you and your beloved to plan the extravagant vacation you've earned. Your resolution: Broaden your perspective through travel or education.
Gemini: May 21–June 21
You may have to make a few phone calls to figure out exactly what is going on with holiday plans, but keep at it. The holidays may be a big, loud event this year, and you'll be happily celebrating with old friends and new. Your resolution: Help others. Lots of giving and receiving.
Cancer: June 21–July 22
Your relationship deepens as you find a new level of compassion and cooperation. This is a lovely time to really get to know someone new, or to see your partner in a different light. If the energies bring a misunderstanding at the end of the week, know that this is the perfect opportunity to see how you two work together to resolve it. Your resolution: Refuse to settle for less than what you are worth.
Leo: July 22–August 23
Moon in your sign on the 25th brings out the best in you. You're entertaining, engaging, and most of all, loved. Just be careful to not bring up hot topics that can cause potential arguments. Sneak away from the festivities for some quiet time with your partner and make them feel special too. Your resolution: Go after what you want at work.
Virgo: August 23–September 23
An opportunity to make some extra money from a special talent has you fired up and enthusiastic about what the new year will bring. With Mars in the house of your partner, they may decide to join you in this venture. Your resolution: Stay within your budget.
Libra: September 23–October 23
You'll be pulled in a lot of directions—especially when it comes to family or matters of real estate. Be patient with everyone who has “holiday head” and isn't moving quite as quickly as you'd like. Listen to your body, as it may be telling you to take a break. Your resolution: A healthier lifestyle with more physical activity.
Scorpio: October 23–November 22
Even though small talk is not your forte, social events bring scores of admirers so single (and attached) Scorpios should dress up and head for the best parties. Enjoy the attention! People want to hear what you have to say. Your resolution: Speak from your heart.
Sagittarius: November 22–December 21
Sharing fond memories with your loved ones has you feeling like you never want to leave the comfort of home again. However, work is demanding and you'll have to watch out for constantly talking about it instead of being present in the moment. Your resolution: Leave work at work.
Capricorn: December 21–January 20
Single Caps are ready to take a huge leap when it comes to new relationships. You've had plenty of time to think about it, so jump right in! Attached Caps will be feeling more content around family and more ready to begin the new year by getting some space from those who you've outgrown. Your resolution: Take more time to de-stress.
Aquarius: January 20–February 18
A casual comment from your family at Christmas has your partner wondering why they didn't know “that” about you. You may need to do a bit of damage control including coming up with a spectacular surprise for NYE to make up for it. Your resolution: Better communication.
Pisces: February 18–March 20
Your ability to keep calm has people feeling a bit jealous. You’re in a good place. On the recent Full Moon, you’ve come to realize that it's more fun when you let go and let everyone deal with their own stuff. Your resolution: Learn to laugh at your own flaws.
