Your weekly horoscope is here, for the week commencing December 13th 2020

Astrologer Oscar Cainer lays out your weekly horoscope for the week of Sunday December 13th to December Saturday 20th, 2020. 

What’s life about if not discovery and self-development? You’re not the same person you were this time last week – you’ve absorbed information and made discoveries about the world and yourself. That’s why it’s no longer appropriate to feel the same way about a situation that has developed in your life. The solar eclipse brings a new way to deal with it.

Remember when you were “in the flow”? When things effortlessly fell into place? If only those moments lasted and you didn’t have to wrestle with delays and obstacles in your path. This week, as your ruling planet Saturn leaves your sign, you’ll experience a sense of ease. Complex conversations will get easier and problems you’ve been wrestling with will become solvable.

Have you heard about the man who was so scared of being burgled he wouldn’t leave his home? Despite installing an alarm system, his fears remained. In fact, potential technological issues made his anxiety worse! That’s the trouble with worry: when we pander to it, it thrives. You have no reason to be fearful this week as Saturn, your ruler, enters your sign to guide you through.

It seems that a difficult situation has reached a stage where you feel you need to jump in and sort it out, once and for all. But is that really necessary? There’s a good chance that what you’re attempting to repair wasn’t broken in the first place. The solar eclipse reveals the upside to a problem. If you re-establish a sense of optimism, you’ll find a hidden opportunity this week.

You’ve been tussling with a problem: no matter which angle you approach it from, every attempt to move things forward results in another issue appearing and you’re concerned you may regret some of the steps you’ve taken. But you’re not in as much of a quandary as you think. As Saturn moves into a new sector of the sky, you can let something go and find a more hopeful path.

People who show strong leadership have both opponents and admirers. But they’re also so convinced their way is right that they’re able to brush off criticism with ease. You find yourself having to stand firm in your position regarding a contentious situation. No matter how hard you try, you won’t be able to keep everyone happy. Stay true to your convictions.

Have you reached the end of your tether? Do you feel as if you’re hanging to the crumbling edge of a cliff? Well, the solar eclipse heralds a positive change for you. There’s no need to try to hold on to anything or fight against an invisible force. You’ve done enough. You can let go as you’re now being taken on a course that’s heading towards a safe and welcoming destination.

Your sensitivity and natural empathy mean you’re able to anticipate other people’s needs and morph into what you think they want you to be. After a while, though, you realise your own needs have been subjugated. The solar eclipse offers a chance to rebalance a situation. You’ll find the energy to nurture yourself and express your needs in a way that finds support.

Should you be making more of a fuss? It’s hard to tell if you’re underestimating or over-exaggerating or a concern. One moment things look as if they’re heading in the right direction, the next, in the wrong one. No wonder you’re frustrated. The problem is a lack of information. This week’s solar eclipse highlights new knowledge that enables you to work out what you need to do.

It’s not easy when you feel things haven’t worked out as they should. Not only have you had to deal with disappointment, but also a situation seems to be growing more complex by the hour. Although you’re better than most at dealing with life’s stresses and strains, you’re not immune to feeling overwhelmed. Ignore anyone who tells you your expectations are set too high. The solar eclipse brings an improvement.

With invisible networks linking us to information wherever we go, it’s hard to escape current trends and the latest headlines, even when we try. And despite being able to connect with people around the world, we still feel lonely sometimes. This week, the solar eclipse brings an opportunity to develop a relationship in a way that feels rewarding and very satisfying.

Some poetry for you: “Until the mind can love, and admire, and trust, and hope, and endure, reasoned principles of moral conduct are seeds cast upon the highway of life which the unconscious passenger tramples into dust” (Percy Bysshe Shelley). It’s hard to argue with this. Luckily, agreement can be reached as a barrier between you and someone you need on-side softens.
