The beginning of this week may feel somewhat overwhelming, but also inspiring. A full moon in Cancer rushes through your first house of the self on December 29, encouraging you to embrace the new and improved you. It may be time to make a change in the way you express and honor yourself. Are you headed down the right path? Are you reflecting your truth in your career?
It may feel difficult to focus on your usual daily routine this week—especially on December 30 when Venus in your sixth house of wellness and work squares off with Neptune in your adventurous ninth house. Daydreams and distractions can take you into strange new territory, so don’t fall too far off track. By December 31, you may be faced with competition—thanks to the moon opposing Pluto in your seventh house of open enemies. It also squares Mars in your domineering tenth house. A little healthy competition can motivate you, but don’t stoop to such a low level that you forget your values.
True self-acceptance and confidence do not need to prove themselves, as you’ll be made aware on January 2. The moon in your second house of self-esteem will form a trine with Mars in your career sector, urging you to go after no one’s approval but your own.
