The week begins with Jupiter moving into Pisces, and that can help you start to attract luck and opportunities through your intuition, creativity, and imagination. Jupiter will stay there for a long time, so you are going into the New Year with this creative energy. Just be careful not to get hung up on wishful thinking that you could end up becoming lazy. 

Then on December 29th, Mercury makes a conjunction with Venus in Capricorn. You will find that communication is highly essential as it is a good time for setting boundaries and being an excellent opportunity for contracts and proposals. However, since Venus is in retrograde, only those who you are meant to create recommendations for will come into your life at this time. 

Therefore, it is more likely you will have an easier time setting boundaries during this transit. On the same day, Mars in Sagittarius sextiles Saturn in Aquarius, which means you have a good chance of working on long-term projects. You may also make excellent progress when working through challenging jobs. However, be careful not to spend the whole day working or else you will neglect those who are important to you. 

Then on the 30th, Mercury in Capricorn conjuncts Pluto and this is the last major transit of the year. You will need to have some deep conversations about serious topics as you will also have the opportunity to know your wants and ambitions. Just be careful not to get too obsessive about anything. Goal-setting is ideal with this transit too. 

Then on January 2nd, you have the New Moon in Capricorn, which means you will make some serious and significant new starts when it comes to work, business, or your personal life. It is a great time to set some severe and structured new intentions. Let’s see how each sign does this week. 

Aries – During the final week of December, as you head into January, you will find that you can concentrate on your new goals for the new year and come up with action plans to go after the best if you are given alone time. You will be asking for a lot of solitude this week, and you will not want to be around too many people if you can help it—express appreciation to those who give you the privacy you need. 

Taurus – You may have received some money for Christmas, or you may have ended up with some small amount of money otherwise recently. You will want to use that money to invest in a particular project. Perhaps you have an idea for a new niche blog for the new year, or you have some software or equipment to purchase to help you monetize your business more. You will use it for something practical that will help you earn money in the new year. 

Gemini – Your need for cleansing and organization is still strong this week. However, like Aries, you will need some privacy, unlike your nature, to become clearer on what you want for the new year. You want to purge all of the negative things that have happened early in the year, and you can do that through mindfulness and meditation. 

Cancer – You will continue to have some joyous occasions with your family and friends during the holidays as you will also want to have an enjoyable New Year’s celebration. However, what you will also be discussing a lot with them are your boundaries and expectations as you will have developed more confidence over the year. That means you will express your needs for more ME time. 

Leo – You will have a strong urge to show off, which is why you will be the one to host a New Year’s party with colleagues or friends. It can come in various ways as you may want to plan a dinner out, host it at your home, or even do one virtually if you aren’t comfortable with either otherwise. You are feeling generous this week, but you also want to appear impressive, which is why you are having the urge to do that.

Virgo – You will be reflecting on how the year went for you and be careful not to get overly critical as you might since that is how you are naturally. If you are a part of celebrations, try to enjoy them and not get caught up in overthinking any past mistakes. That can spoil the fun, which is the last thing you want to do. You will be happier during the New Moon when you feel you can make some fresh beginnings. 

Libra – Speaking up is something that you usually don’t do because that is not in your nature, but this week you will not have any problems with doing that. That is because you will be taking the time to reflect over the year and see how you did not set clear boundaries. You are fixing that, making your needs and wants to be known. You will be making this abundantly clear to your family, colleagues, and friends. 

Scorpio – You may make a hefty discovery during the last week of the year, which may come through either you are probing into it, or someone may confide something in you. It won’t change your life per se, but it will change how you approach the issue you find out. And this will have an impact on how you handle this over the new year. 

Sagittarius – With Mars in your sign making a favorable aspect to Jupiter, you will be fixated on either working out after the large holiday meals you have had over the month or focusing on your goals for the new year. However, remember not to get too caught up in them. You will end up missing out on some last-minute fun time before the New Year. 

Capricorn – With Venus in your sign, even in retrograde, along with Mercury, you will have the urge to socialize and break from work this week as you are enjoying the festive time. Enjoy it and take the time to have fun, as you will be back into the swing of things before you know it. And you will feel it the most during the New Moon at the end of the week. 

Aquarius – You will be feeling extra productive this week as you will be glad that the Christmas holiday is over, and you will be making action-oriented plans for your personal and professional goals to start working on after the New Year. The timing works well since the New Moon begins at that time. 

Pisces – The one thing that you will be inclined to look for this week is closure. If you lost a friend due to differences, you may be the one to contact them even if they were wrong so you could get the closure you need. That is one example, but you need this closure because it will help you move forward to start fresh for the New Year. 

This is the final week of 2021, and Happy New Year. Next week you will find out what is in the stars for you during the first week of 2022.
