With Jupiter on the opposite side of the zodiac to Uranus this is a Christmas of surprises. Hopefully someone will take your breath away with a gift or declaration but if you are sandbagged instead, fear not: there is a positive reason for events, as you may well discover early in the New Year. You may be able to set a situation in cement before the holiday weekend, but if retrograde Mercury holds matters up, you won’t have long to wait before you can sign on the dotted line. And thinking of retrograde Mercury… Deal with information immediately – don’t set something aside because you may well forget about it. As for travel – you know the code: set off in good time.
