A Sunday supermoon made all signs feel extra emotional—pulled by forces larger than they may have initially comprehended. You may still feel the effects of the super moon during the early part of the week, even as you try to hunker down and go back to business as usual. Midweek, chatty Mercury connects with sobering Saturn, which can lead to crossed wires, switched-up decisions, and mixed messages. Deep breaths. The biggest transit of the week is feisty Mars shifting into seductive Scorpio on December 9, right in time for the weekend. This can create drama, but can also lead to 

Aries Weekly Horoscope 
Hi, Mercury in retrograde! Expect some things you thought were finished to come back to you this week. Resist the urge to feel frustrated and look at the bright side: Now’s the time to reverse course, rethink, or potentially do whatever it is better than you did it the first time. This week is all about paying attention to detail and making sure you’ve sorted out all the small stuff. Toward the end of the week, the possibility for romance is high, and you may find unexpected passion. Go with it. Try to leave work problems or whatever else is bothering you aside and enjoy evenings and time with friends. The more time you spend in the moment, the more successful the week will be. 

Taurus Weekly Horoscope  
Money is on your mind, and you may find yourself doing endless mental arithmatic. Word of advice: Give it a rest and focus on actually putting your worries down in a spreadsheet. With Mercury in retrograde, it pays to geek out on nitty-gritty details and numbers, and it’s smart to double and triple check any expenses. Negotiations may also come up. Play to win and crank up your confidence. Finally, as energetic Mars enters Scorpio, relationships take most of your attention. Stop the one-liners and conversations you’ve had a billion times before and be authentic on a newish date. Attached? Something is causing you to feel unsettled. Your partner isn’t a mind reader—spill. 

Gemini Weekly Horoscope    
You may find a promise broken mid-week. Don’t panic. It’s not a betrayal, it’s likely a result of crossed wires, courtesy of Mercury in retrograde. While it’s tempting to hold a grude, doing so will only make the situation worse. Be gracious, move on, and use this as a lesson—you just can’t depend on promises. But the week gets better as exploratory Mars moves into your wellness sector on December 9. This shift reminds you to focus on what you can control—your health, well being, and actions—and allows you to shift your focus from what you can’t. This weekend may bring up some nostalgic feelings, and you may find yourself tempted to reach out to someone from your past. Check yourself before you send that “thinking of you” email. Are you really ready to have that person back in your life?

Cancer Weekly Horoscope
Sorry, Cancer: The beginning of the week isn’t easy, so don’t celebrate the holidays just yet. With Mercury in retrograde and aligning with serious Saturn, small things turn into big crisises ASAP. Expect to do some damage control. Also realize what you are and aren’t responsible for—you have a tendency to put a lot of pressure on yourself. Sure, everyone around you is stressed out, but that may not directly be a result of your own actions. Stick to what you know. On December 9, when dynamic Mars enters steamy Scorpio, you’re feeling extra creative and inspired. It’s a great time to stop the focus on work (which is all drama anyway) and do something because you want to. You sometimes get caught up in the details—why decorate for the holidays if everything is only coming down in a month—but sometimes, the process is the point. Remember that. 

Leo Weekly Horoscope
Love is rocky AF this week, Leo. Blame Mercury, a bit, but also it may be smart to look inward—are you sending mixed messages or confusing signals? Knowing how other people are reading your actions can help you right the ship you’ve built. Single? You’re so good at flirting, but this week, stop the game and just have a heart to heart, eye to eye conversation. Being genuine wins the week. Toward the end of the week, you’re focused on your home sector. You’ve left projects and chores slip for way too long (we see you, #cluttercorner) but cleaning up will help you see everything more clearly. Finally, have you planned the holidays yet? The stars say you’re procrastinating, but there’s only so many more weeks left. Get on it. 

Virgo Weekly Horoscope 
This week’s blend of energies light a fire under your ass and encourage you to get moving on all fronts. A word of caution: While your motivation is awesome, make sure that you;re being thorough, as Mercury in retrograde has a way of undoing ambitious projects unless you’re absolutely sure all i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed. Family disputes may come up. You’re good at negoitating, but right now, may have a bit of a “holier than thou” attitude that puts a damper on whatever you’re trying to share or explain. Try to empathize with other people and use the phrase “can you explain that to me?” vigorously. Finally, as energizing Mars enters your communication sector on December 9, you’ll find tht people are listening to your powers of persuasion—so what do you want them to do? 

Libra Weekly Horoscope 
This week is a great one to reconnect with friends and family near and far. You’re feeling the holiday spirit early, and don’t hold back. You tend to hold off on letting people know how you feel about them, waiting for them to make the first move. Don’t! The more you share, the more they’ll share how they feel about you, for a feel good lovefest to start the week. But warm and fuzzies aside, you’re not immune from Mercury in retrograde, and even your charm won’t help you get out of a problem. You may need to cancel plans and hunker down to make things right early in the week. Over the weekend, stirring Mars urges you to shop. Indulge within reason but make sure you can fully cover your purchases! 

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope 
Finances are still an issue for you Scorpio, with money not necessarily moving into your account as it should. Yes, it’s partially Mercury retrograde’s “fault” but it’s also a good wakeup call to be even more on top of your finances than you’ve been in the past. And don’t let panic get to you. You’ve got this! As Mars moves into your sign over the weekend, you’re feeling extra ambitious, and projects and goals are in an excellent spot to work out the way you want them to. Everything is coming together, and it’s a heady feeling. Just remember to not let pride get the best of you—thanking the people in your life who’ve helped (and yes, even if you are a lone wolf, you’ve got a few people on your list) is essential. 

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope 
Romance is everything at the beginning of the week. Stop playing the “what if” game and enjoy the moment, if you’re single. Planning too far in advance or trying to suss out complete compatibility will only lead to frustration. Attached? Enjoy the time together, but also realize that the things below the surface won’t go away. It may be a good time to talk about what’s on your mind. Dynamic Mars enters a private sector of your chart toward the weekend, and you may find yourself feeling compelled to cancel on plans. Assess the pros and cons. It actually may just be easier and less drama in the long run to suck it up and go. 

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope 
Toward the beginning of the week, the stars shine on your spiritual sector, making you ask the big questions and making you feel potentially unfulfilled or dissatisfied with the current state of the world. Instead of bemoaning all that’s happening, help out. Even the smallest moves, like donating to a food shelter or holiday charity, can remind you that you can make a difference. Toward the end of the week, Mars moves to your social sector, and your life becomes more fun and interesting than it’s been in awhile. You may also feel overwhelmed. Don’t keep those feelings inside, as they will bubble over. Talk about them—you’ll find support. 

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope 
The beginning of the week finds you focusing on friends, but beware of getting caught up in a gossip spiral. Listen, but don’t judge, and don’t repeat what you hear—Mercury in retrograde has a tendency to make those conversations known to exactly the people you would rather didn’t hear them. The pressure is off for now, and enjoy the feeling of less responsibility, as Mars moves into your career sector on Saturday and you’ll feel the pressure. You’ll rise to the occasion, just like you always do, but beware of jealousy and competition. Focus on the end goal. 

Pisces Weekly Horoscope 
You’re itching to escape and have been dreaming about vacations. Your time will come, Pisces. In the meantime, the stars say this is a month to hunker down and focus on your ambition—you’ll get everything you want, but right now is all about leaning in and working hard. You may find yourself envying someone else’s life, and if you’re caught scrolling endlessly across Instagram, stop. Chances are, your life right now looks pretty damn good, too, only you need to step back and be able to get the perspective to see that everything is going great. On the love front, it’s time to put your partner first. Single? Let a newish date call the shots. You tend to have an agenda, focus on letting it go and seeing where the evening leads.
