Winter is approaching, and the cosmos is shedding light on your hopes for the future. The end of the year can feel like a serious wake-up call, and your Dec. 4 weekly horoscope is bringing focus to the bigger picture. Are you in alignment with your truth? How have your past experiences influenced the person you’ve become?
The week begins on a supercharged note, as the moon joins forces with electric Uranus, adding a sudden jolt to the emotional atmosphere. Fueled by Venus in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Pisces, this unexpected epiphany could revolve around an outdated belief system or a desire to break free, specifically when it comes to finances, values, and your definition of stability. What you once considered important may no longer resonate, and that’s OK. To add to it, Mercury will square off with Jupiter, continuing to highlight the mindset, ideas, and philosophies you’ve recently outgrown. The communicator planet will ingress into Capricorn shortly after, adding a layer of tradition, honesty, and pragmatism to thought processes and exchanges. The truth isn’t always pretty, but Mercury in Capricorn prefers to get down to business.
Just in time for a Mercury-ruled (Gemini) full moon on Dec. 7, there will be an influx of energy brought to the surface, pointing out unrealistic expectations or missing facts surrounding a particular situation. Reality continues to set in on Dec. 9, when Venus squares Jupiter and enters Capricorn shortly after. Whether you look at it in terms of financial success or the type of relationships you’re longing for, the cosmos is urging you to be honest with yourself and cultivate accountability. Wise Jupiter is highlighting the wisdom you’ve obtained in past experiences, and it’s time to finally move forward. As for your goals, dreams, and expectations of the future, reflect on where you’ve unconsciously sold yourself short in the past. It’s time to level up.

Aries (March 21-April 19) Weekly Horoscope For Dec. 4, 2022
This is your chance to rise above the unconscious burdens holding you back from reaching your highest potential, Aries. The week of Dec. 4 brings emphasis to your past, present, and future, simultaneously — and though it may feel a bit like sensory overload, this is merely a conversation between you and your higher self. Venus’s square to elusive Neptune on Dec. 4 can be equally mystical as it is liberating, but it’s up to you to remain grounded and confront what no longer aligns with your soul’s truth. Whether romantically, financially, or in terms of your value systems, the cosmos is urging you to surrender. You’re at the precipice of stepping into your new reality, and with Jupiter re-entering your sign on Dec. 20, let’s just say you’ll be glad you did the work.
Savvy Mercury will ingress into Capricorn — your 10th house of boss moves — on Dec. 6, bringing your thoughts down to Earth and urging you to prioritize energies surrounding your reputation, career, and work ethic. The irony of this is there will be a Mercury-ruled full moon the following day — conjunct your celestial ruler, Mars, which is retrograde — happening in your chatty third house of communication.

Venus will join Mercury in Capricorn on Dec. 9, adding a layer of honesty and sophistication to themes surrounding your relationships, finances, and long-term values. A new chapter begins.

Your recent attachment to a community or network could be clouding your long-term visions, but rest assured that this uncertainty won’t last forever. In fact, the moon will join Uranus in your sign on Dec. 5, heightening your desire for freedom and unconventionality — perhaps pushing you to close an important chapter in your life the next day when Mercury squares Jupiter. On Dec. 6, Mercury will also ingress into your fellow earth sign, Capricorn, bringing emphasis and momentum to your expansive ninth house of adventure, higher learning, and self-discovery.
There will be a Mercury-ruled full moon in Gemini the following day, bringing a sense of closure and completion to themes of finance and stability.

Either way, you’re being encouraged to make the necessary changes with regard to your future in order to become more aligned with your highest good. Being honest with yourself and others isn’t always smooth sailing, but it’s necessary nonetheless. This tug of war between your personal desires vs. your commitment to a significant other is likely to surface on Dec. 8, when the sun opposes Mars retrograde. Stay centered.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) Weekly Horoscope For Dec. 4, 2022
Are you and your significant other(s) on the same page, Gemini? Whether you’re uncertain about what your romantic future holds or receive a long-awaited professional offer, the week of Dec. 4 is bringing emphasis to a belief system that’s no longer in harmony with your current reality. Stay patient, as the moon’s electric conjunction with Uranus the following day will bring forth an unexpected light-bulb moment. Don’t dismiss your intuitive downloads; you’re not just imagining it. On Dec. 6, your savvy celestial ruler, Mercury, will go head to head with Jupiter, suggesting the possibility of a new path opening in your favor — but it may not resonate with the belief systems you’re being called to leave behind.
Just in time for a full moon in your sign on Dec. 7, your celestial ruler, Mercury, will already be transiting through Capricorn and your eighth house of intimacy. This full moon will highlight the missing puzzle pieces of a particular situation, if not enlighten you about what needs to be addressed for the results you seek in the long term. Then on Dec. 8, the sun’s opposition to Mars could create friction between you and a loved one; make sure you’re staying grounded and communicating clearly. Venus’s square to Jupiter the following day sheds light on what you’ve outgrown, and its ingress into Capricorn shortly after brings you down to Earth.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) Weekly Horoscope For Dec. 4, 2022
Is your day-to-day lifestyle building a path toward your future, Cancer?

How have your hobbies, passions, and experiences around thrill influenced your intimate unions? Mercury will eventually ingress into Capricorn, and right on time for a full moon in Gemini on Dec. 7. Conjunct Mars retrograde, you could gain clarity around a missing “puzzle piece” or initiative surrounding your future goals and dreams. Then on Dec. 8, your celestial ruler, the sun, will oppose Mars retrograde. Has your ego influenced your sense of belonging in the world?
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Weekly Horoscope For Dec. 4, 2022
If things seem ambiguous when it comes to your living arrangements, don’t be discouraged by the uncertainty, Virgo. The same goes for your desire for freedom or beliefs around stability.

The sun’s opposition to Mars retrograde could begin to shed light on the truth behind your future aspirations. Are you being honest with yourself about what you want?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Weekly Horoscope For Dec. 4, 2022
Making a decision about next steps is easier said than done when there is so much uncertainty, Libra.

Practical energies such as work routines and mundane affairs are hazy, but this is where you’re being encouraged to reflect on your past experiences in order to move forward with confidence.

You may begin seeing things from a different perspective entirely, and that could forever alter your beliefs moving forward.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Weekly Horoscope For Dec. 4, 2022
Your financial goals are more possible than you allow yourself to realize, Scorpio. The week of Dec. 4 begins with a perplexing square between Venus and Neptune, highlighting your overindulgences as well as your lack of clarity when it comes to matters of self-worth. Are you wholeheartedly living your best life and doing everything you can to become more aligned with your calling? Sounds like a lot to tackle at once, but your passions will fuel you — they always have.
The moon will conjunct Uranus on Dec. 5, bringing unexpected shake-ups to your relationship sector while shedding light on those you no longer resonate with. Whether personally or professionally, this is where the cosmos is urging you to reflect on your connections with others, especially those that cloud your perception of yourself. Have you continued to surround yourself with people who leech onto your divinity, or are you beyond it all? You don’t have to take that outdated outlook with you moving forward, and this is precisely what the full moon in Gemini is bringing to light. After all, with Mars retrograde, you may even revisit an exchange with someone from your past, or realize how you’ve unconsciously intertwined both realities.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Weekly Horoscope For Dec. 4, 2022
You are an individual, both within and outside of your family, Sagittarius. On Dec. 4, while transiting your sign, Venus will face off with Neptune via your fourth house of home, highlighting the areas where you’ve lacked boundaries — specifically those that would’ve allowed you to be your most authentic self. This could be financially speaking or in terms of your relationships. In the meantime, reflect on whether your early experiences played a role in these Venusian aspects of your life. What are you finally ready to let go of and move on from?

Relaying this message may not necessarily be the easiest, but this truth coming to light will set you free. You’re being challenged to release outdated beliefs surrounding money, relationships, and your sense of self-worth. Venus’s ingress into Capricorn wants you to take your power back.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Weekly Horoscope For Dec. 4, 2022
Can you trust what you’re hearing, Capricorn? Things could be as ambiguous as ever, especially when Venus squares Neptune on Dec. 4. You may be longing for a certain amount of freedom in your immediate community and yet have no choice but to show up when you’re in the mood to retreat.

Venus’s ingress into your sign always brings good news, but you should remain discerning with your investments.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Weekly Horoscope For Dec. 4, 2022
All the relationships you value are being brought to the forefront, Aquarius. The week of Dec. 4 begins with Venus and Neptune at a crossroads.

The following day, Mercury will ingress into Capricorn, lighting up your 12th house of closure, secrets, and inhibitions, and just in time for a full moon in Gemini the next day. Touching down on your flirty fifth house of children, romance, and passion projects, this lunation is likely to bring clarity around next steps or encourage you to address your feelings for someone in the workplace. The bottom line is, is it all really worth it?
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Weekly Horoscope For Dec. 4, 2022
Doubting yourself will only reflect onto your personal and professional endeavors, so make sure you’re being crystal clear, Pisces. This is especially true when considering the influence of your elusive planetary ruler, Neptune, this week. For instance, before wrapping up in Sagittarius — your 10th house of authority and reputation in the world — Venus will face off with Neptune in your sign on Dec. 4.

What do you stand for, and what beliefs are you ready to release in the process?
On Dec. 6, Mercury will ingress into Capricorn via your 11th house of community affairs and your sense of belonging in the world.

How can you be more realistic with your goals moving forward? The moon will peak alongside Mars retrograde in Gemini on Dec. 7, bringing emphasis to your inner dialogue and the dynamic of your early experiences. It’s time to connect with your ride or dies and those who share similar goals and dreams.
