Your horoscope for the week of December 5 is full of climactic moments, so prepare for a few twists and turns. The energy is building up faster than you may be able to keep up with, but you’re learning sometimes major in the process. Prepare to see what you’re really made of!
It all begins on December 6, when Mercury in Sagittarius squares off with expansive and risk-taking Jupiter. This will lead to big ideas full of courage and bravado, so indulge in the excitement of learning new things and discovering brilliant things to talk about. This majorly revelatory moment will occur just before Mercury enters sturdy, disciplined and pragmatic Capricorn, giving you the patience and motivation to actually bring these ideas to fruition.
The most climactic moment of this week arrives on December 7 at 11:07 p.m ET, when a full moon takes place at 16 degrees Gemini. This mutable air sign is famous for its witty and intellectual curiosity, but also it’s big mouth! And although this full moon will bring game-changing truths to light, it may lack sensitivity in its delivery. Forming an exact conjunction with Mars retrograde, this full moon could also lead to confusing conflicts, misplaced anger and debates that lead nowhere. However, through every dramatic moment, you’re learning more about how to communicate effectively when the passion strikes. Instead of stewing in your anger, direct it toward something that empowers you.
By December 9, Venus in Sagittarius will also join in on the fun by squaring off with Jupiter. During this time, you can expect an explosion of spontaneous excitement, especially if you’re willing to do something wild and uninhibited in order to get the good vibes going. This is a perfect time to shake things up and pump some positive energy into the mix, especially if you’re currently seeing someone. And once Venus enters stable and committed Capricorn later that same day, you can start discussing where these exciting developments are truly headed.
Here’s what you can expect from the upcoming week, according to your sun and/or rising sign (and seriously, you’re missing out if you don’t read these horoscopes for your rising sign):
Throughout the week, you may be engaging in conversations that shake up your fears. After all, Mercury in your philosophical ninth will square off with Jupiter in your 12th house of subconscious mindsets on December 6, which could trigger deep revelations about how you really feel.
Passions may come to a head by December 7, when a full moon in Gemini brings a burst of energy to your third house of communication.

A conversation may pull out something uncomfortable from deep inside you, purging it from your system.
As Venus squares off with Jupiter on December 9, you may find that pushing the envelope with someone is actually bringing you closer. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and be vulnerable, because sometimes, being truthful about what’s most sensitive gives the other person permission to do the same.

On December 6, Mercury in your obsessive eighth house will square off with Jupiter in your idealistic 11th house, which can encourage you to make concessions and excuses for some of your more questionable instincts.

Only you know the furthest extent of your potential.

On December 6, Mercury—which happens to be in your relationship sector—will square off with Jupiter in your 10th house of career and public image.

A full moon in Gemini could turn your life completely upside down on December 7. OK, that may be a stretch, but it will certainly exert pressure on your patience and trigger some of your defenses.
