After all the presents are unwrapped (if you're into that kind of thing), there's another cosmic gift coming your way this holiday week, says astrologer Jennifer Racioppi—in the form of sultry and sexually charged energy. Here's her day-by-day advice for making the most of it, no matter what your sun sign is.
Monday, December 24
With the holiday week in full effect, and consequently year-end stress too, take time to focus on what’s going right in your life. Stop, savor, and consciously connect with the feeling of joy. Doing so helps you to open up to heartfelt positivity, which amplifies the potential for transformation—a change in the way you experience life (or at least the day!).

With Mercury making a harsh and hard angle to Neptune today, mindfully moving through the day proves fruitful. On a very practical level, this aspect could lead to intoxication, too, so be sure to imbibe with consciousness. Most importantly, don’t drink and drive.

Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate. The moon travels in Leo all day today, which bodes well for celebrations. To quote Oprah’s holiday message, “My prayer, my wish for you, is that you actually lay it down and that in these coming holidays you allow yourself to be fully present with whoever is in front of you, with whatever space you hold. That you give your 100 percent, all-interior self to whatever space you’re holding.” Take time and space to be with those you love! Allow yourself the joy of a day off.
Wednesday, December 26
Yesterday’s holiday gives way to today’s post-holiday freedom. With so few days remaining in the year, there are two ways you can play your cards today: indulge in more consumerism, sugar, sweets, and alcohol, or take action on behalf of your most heartfelt desires. The cosmic suggestion? Take aligned action. To paraphrase Dan Millman’s words from his book The Way of The Peaceful Warrior, to change the course of your life, choose one of two basic methods: "1. You can direct your energy and attention toward trying to fix your mind, find your focus, affirm your power, free your emotions and visualize positive outcomes so that you can finally develop the confidence to display the courage to discover the determination to make the commitment to feel sufficiently motivated to do what it is you need to do. 2. Or you can just do it." Today, while the world continues to enjoy the post-holiday lethargy and consumerism, do that thing you’ve wanted to do all year.

The waning moon travels through Virgo today, suggesting that you might need time alone today. If so choose solo activities that bring you into a state of flow, like reading a book, working on a puzzle, or practicing yoga. With a long weekend ahead for many, embrace the spaciousness this time of year offers. In many ways, flow is meditation in action—when you are completely immersed in the here and now. Devoting an hour or two to doing what you love will bring you back to balance.

Venus in Scorpio makes a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn, meaning this Friday brings sultry powers. With the long weekend commencing, the cosmos ask you to tap into what turns you on.

Even if your day is riddled with errands, carve out time for pleasure. Taking the time to connect to your sexuality lowers cortisol levels, and brings hormone-boosting powers to your day. Enjoy the gifts of orgasm.

Mars and Chiron conjoin today in emotional Pisces, meaning today might bring cathartic feelings. With 2018 quickly coming to a close, use the healing potential of this transit to feel into what you need to leave behind and release. The waning quarter moon happens today too, marking the halfway point between the last full moon and the upcoming new moon, signifying a time to shed what you no longer need. Get honest and name what you are leaving behind in 2018. Should tears emerge, allow yourself a good cry.
Sunday, December 30
The sun in Capricorn snuggles up next to Saturn. Despite today being a Sunday amidst a holiday week, serious vibes prevail. While Saturn's exact conjunction to the sun won't perfect until New Year's Day, you’ll start to feel Saturn's weight now. With the year-end celebrations in full roar, don’t forget your wellness routines. Working out, eating sensibly, and taking your vitamins supports you immensely. Prioritize rest, too. There’s nothing worse than rolling into the new year sick, so take care of yourself now!
