There are certain helpful cosmic trends about this week, along with others that will require more careful handling, but can still turn out favourably in the longer term. But overall, you are more at the fulcrum of events and this situation suits you better. Sometimes, you feel out of step with those around you and that your associations on a personal level are rather cramping your style. Now though, your friends and those with a deeper significance to you, prove supportive of your views and ideas, making you the stronger for these links. Spare a thought this week for your emotional well-being, despite all the challenges elsewhere.

Your work and career concerns are paramount. This covers those aiming for a qualification, returning to the labour market, looking for a better paid position or even others in pursuit of more extensive and vocational goals. It is a personal odyssey for you and as you’ve travelled so much of the journey alone already, there is a temptation to keep your own counsel and thus many of your concerns and anxieties to yourself. That is unnecessary and only holds you back from a source of emotional and possibly, financial support. Your colleagues and superiors are of assistance, but you’ll never know until you spread the word.

Your romantic outlook couldn’t be better. Those of you who are single and looking, stand a huge chance of meeting somebody suitable, or of enjoying the enduring attention and affection of someone who this far, you’d thought of as a special friend. If you’re already in an enduring liaison that has seen a lot of pressure lately, but you have still managed to pull together, while increasing your sense of commitment to one another, then this buoyant and happy trend rubs off on you too. You’ll rediscover much of what attracted you to each other in the first place, making romance a reality and an element of your everyday situation.

You hold other members of your family in the highest esteem. Matters will not always run smoothly and because you care so much you can get very cross, but fundamentally you know these are your own flesh and blood, thus the closest thing to a replica of you that exists. The dynamic between your nearest and dearest has changed a great deal over the past few years; but at least presently, you seem to be enjoying a quieter phase where you can appreciate how much you’ve all grown. There are more personal concerns to worry about anyway, that encourage you to focus on the road ahead and attend to what you’ve started.

Mars in your relationship sector can swing two ways. Firstly, you are madly entranced by an ardent and enthusiastic suitor, who keeps you busy in the day and up all night, with activities that leave you worn out, yet still wanting more. There may be a few years between you, but time means little when it comes to an old head on young shoulders. This individual helps you to be more yourself and to expand on theories and ideas you have been pondering for a while. Anyone you are close to must accept the foregoing as their job description, since the alternative for a relationship on the rocks, is the chasm between you worsening…

The holiday season is on its way across large swathes of the world, while in some places it has arrived already. This is an opportune moment then, to spare a thought for your health and well-being, a subject that often concerns you even in the best of circumstances. Physicians of yore linked your sign with the intestines, a part of the body that traditionally faces quite an onslaught at this time of the year. Whether you’re in the midst of the celebrations or these still lie ahead, a little prophylactic action wouldn’t go amiss, even if you inhabit a wholly vacation-free zone. Competitive sport is ideal, for those keen to burn calories.

Mercury reaches the bottommost sector of your horoscope: where it joins Venus, Pluto and the Moon over the course of this week. This makes for a notable focus on your family affairs and domestic interests, so it wouldn’t be difficult spending more time chez vous than usual. Yet the buoyant influence of Jupiter in your sign, makes others glad of your feedback and companionship, while you don’t need to go far to stumble across experiences that leave you with a warm, reflective glow. You are able to relax in company, more than you might be comfortable with normally. Cheerful, happy banter feels more therapeutic than therapy.

Life doesn’t get any easier. Despite your best efforts money still remains tight, while you feel as if you are walking on eggshells around certain issues at home. Maybe something needs to change: like your décor, your furniture, the colour of your sitting room, or even who you’re living with and where. Still, you have a curious sense of calm about proceedings and a feeling it will all work out for the best. In the meantime, you are subject to a substantial degree of stress, that often has physical consequences if you don’t take care. Learn all you can about alternative theories and techniques, that’ll help to maintain your equilibrium.

The pace slows a little, once Mercury leaves your sign. The planet of thought and communication has helped you to appreciate more fully, how others see you and what you can do to improve the impression that you create. If you didn’t take the trouble to codify your experiences yet, then try putting them into words and deeds. The cosmos is offering you a trial run for any changes that you want to make, as Mercury turns retrograde on December 19 and comes back to your constellation early next year. These are not yet momentous alterations, as those of a greater magnitude, lie a little further along your timeline.

For once, your horoscope doesn’t begin with a reference to Pluto. Oops, it does again but even so, Venus in your constellation throughout this week, helps you to get the most from what is often an intimidating proposition. You see: this planet isn’t all about power struggles, control issues, jealousy, possessiveness and the dark inner recesses of your psyche. It also symbolises depth, passion and intensity, shared financial issues and sex. Especially, when combined with the well-known planet of love, some potent and memorable experiences are likely. It will always take a conscious effort though, to minimise the downside.

Mars in your sign keeps you busy; while up to four planets closing in Capricorn, ensure you’re most active behind the scenes. Nevertheless, next week things get easier, once Venus lands in your region of the sky on December 7, making you the envy of the zodiac with your basic chutzpah and panache. As if that isn’t enough, this week and the next Mars is involved in two fortunate and positive configurations, that’ll help round off its harsher edges. Though you are nowhere near so free as you’d like to be, to socialise or to get out and about, even the smallest and the shortest breaks prove disproportionately rewarding in return.

Ever since Saturn entered Sagittarius towards the end of 2014, you have noticed an increasing focus on your worldly ambitions and your professional goals as well. Things may have started out badly, as short cuts from the past caught up with you, but where you’ve recognised the importance of knuckling down and applying yourself, you have most likely fared very well. Your progress has not been meteoric but seems solid, so persisting with this gradual pressure is the right attitude to take. One range of outcomes breeds a subsequent round of results, while the help of others and your own dedication keep you moving forwards…
