Forecast for Dec. 31-Jan. 13

By Cortney Litwin / Special to The Malibu Times

The full moon eclipse in sentimental, emotional Cancer on New Year’s Eve is sure to create a tidal wave of reminiscing (and alcohol intake for some folks, so be mindful while driving). In early January, multiple conjunctions involving the sun, Mercury and Venus in Capricorn energize conservative activities, business ventures and anything else you’re committed to do. The Sun-Mercury conjunction on the 4th accelerates creativity, while the Mercury-Venus merger on the 5th and Sun-Venus hook-up on the 11th favor business networking and promotion. However, Saturn moving retrograde from Jan. 13-May 29, can create some backtracking over plans and projects, especially those pertaining to your job and/or security. Still, it encourages you to finish or revise business projects you’ve put on the backburner.

If you know your rising sign from your time of birth, read that too.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Throwing a party can bring delight during the full moon. Retrograde Saturn prompts an evaluation/revision of your partnership commitments. Also, a past relationship issue may come back to haunt you.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Verbalizing your feelings is the focus of the full moon. Retrograde Saturn prompts an evaluation and possible revision of some past work projects. It’s also time to revamp your work schedule and diet and exercise routine.

The full moon energizes the need to express what’s in your heart. Retrograde Saturn can bring up commitment issues involving romance. It can also help you complete a creative project you’ve been working on.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

The full moon in your sign accelerates your self-expression but can also make you irritated easily. Completing home improvement projects and reassessing family commitments will be the focus of retrograde Saturn.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Spending some quiet time with family and close friends, without the holiday chaos, may be the best way to enjoy the full moon. Retrograde Saturn can hinder your way with words as you revamp your communications skills.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

An exotic ambiance can energize you during the full moon. Retrograde Saturn says it’s time to clear away any inner debris that keeps you stuck. Introspection, therapy, meditation-whatever works for you-will help you resolve the past and move forward.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A sexy tryst is just the thing to bring in the New Year during the full moon. Expect a restructuring of your social life during retrograde Saturn; some friends may disappear, while the loyal ones will stay to support your dreams and goals.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The full moon energizes (and irritates?) interactions with your partner or close friend. Your career goals and commitments get a complete overhaul during the first part of retrograde Saturn (Jan. 13-April 6).

The full moon sends objectivity underground in favor of emotional revelations, so express yourself! Retrograde Saturn encourages an evaluation/revision of your education goals and spiritual practices and beliefs.

Getting creative revs up romance during the full moon. Retrograde Saturn prompts an evaluation/revision your debt and investments. It’s also time to analyze any sexual or emotional blocks you may have that hinder intimacy.
