Ending the Year With Mercury Retrograde: Here’s Your Horoscope for the Week of December 26

Weekly Horoscope

Yes, you read that right. As we prepare for the end of 2022, we also need to get ready for the fourth and final Mercury Retrograde of the year that’s set to happen on December 29.

Mercury is a planet that rules communication, and it retrograding in the sign of Capricorn that rules one’s ambition, power, and discipline means that certain plans you have may not fall through, or that someone or something is hampering your decision-making, or that you will fall victim to miscommunication with your loved ones and peers.

It’s important to be more attentive to how you say things to other people during this time! Remember that your words can hurt, but they can also heal too—so be kind.

At the same time, you’ll want to protect yourself from the negative effects of this Mercury Retrograde by practicing self-care. Take a much-needed break, watch some shows you’ve been meaning to see, read a book, or relax at home with a loved one. Just take it slow and easy, especially when everything around you just seems overwhelming, hectic, and stressful.

Find out how the energies of this retrograde will affect you this week:

Aries (March 21 to April 19)

Things have not been going according to plan for you lately, and it’s likely because of your tendency to do things on a whim. You need to know what exactly you’re getting yourself into instead of acting on impulse. But don’t be discouraged; treat this as a learning experience so you can make better decisions moving forward.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You have to be more mindful of your attitude at this time, understanding that selfish actions will always affect other people. In your want to get ahead and succeed in your goals, you risk hurting your loved ones and peers. Compassion and kindness are more important than being the best. There are consequences to everything.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

Be careful with your pride at this time. You may feel like you’re meant for something better than what you currently have but you must understand that having the best of everything won’t always fulfill you. Patience and moderation are keys to moving forward in life. Reflect on what’s truly important.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

You’ve got some inner issues you need to resolve. You’re starting to question yourself and your goals, doubting your capability of achieving success. You must process your emotions, face your problems, and start your healing process. Don’t give up; clarity will come in time. Just give yourself some much-needed self-care!

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You may have been putting in a lot of effort on something that isn’t rewarding you enough, and you’re starting to doubt if all this was even worth it to begin with. Ask yourself: was this something you wanted to do in the first place? If not, let it go and prioritize your own joys. If it is, you must stay patient! Reassess where you are and where you’re headed to gain more clarity on what you need to do right now.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You’ve been prioritizing your work way too much and if you aren’t careful, it will lead to burnout. Take a break and spend quality time with loved ones for the sake of your mental health. Having a proper work-life balance is the key to a more fulfilled life! So slow down and make space for leisure activities.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Be mindful of your ambition; you may not realize that your desire to stay in control and to get ahead may end up hurting other people. Is having power worth pushing others away? You must change this attitude and have more compassion for those around you.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You are filled with so much emotion right now and, if you aren’t careful, you may end up making decisions you’ll regret. Don’t let your feelings overwhelm you. Take a step back, breathe, and recharge your energies with your loved ones. Sometimes, taking a break is all you ever need to destress.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You may have been feeling discouraged by wasted efforts, but with a lot of inner work, you’ve managed to overcome these negative emotions and are now ready to move forward. As long as you reassess your goals, finally letting go of those that aren’t worth the investment, you will feel more assured of where you ought to go from here.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You may feel that your worst fears are coming to life, leaving you greatly stressed and anxious. However, you must acknowledge that this negativity may just be a product of your own imagination. Often, things aren’t really as bad as your mind makes them seem. So think logically and believe that you are more than capable of overcoming these doubts! Receive all the love that surrounds you too to make you feel even better.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Remember, as you strive towards your goals, that you must remain as objective as possible. Keep your emotions in check so that you are making the right, sound decisions. Opportunities abound all around you but seize only those that will truly enrich your life. Stay cool and levelheaded!

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

You have managed to persevere through challenging times and, finally, all these problems are coming to an end soon! Be proud of how you’ve fought and survived. Now feeling emotionally fulfilled, give yourself a much-needed break surrounded by your loved ones. Let them remind you of what truly matters in life—not material wealth but rather, all the relationships you build.
