December puts a big package under your tree with Sun, Mercury and Venus moving into Capricorn and conjuncting powerful Pluto. Personal issues hit a high note ... or is it a screech or a swoon? Have you been naughty or nice?

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
The main focus of your holiday cheer will be centered in your career advancement. Aries - keep your eye on the prize and get going to wherever you are headed professionally. But that doesn’t mean that you ignore friends and family. It means that you can enlist their help either through getting some sage advice or a profitable connection. Milk it and whip it up.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Winter vacations are in the cards for any Taurus in need of a great escape. The vista are encouraging, wide and beckon you. If you can’t get completely away, at least plan some short weekend toots. It will expand your vision, give you some fresh ideas and possibly lead you to some life changing opportunities. Don’t wait for the email. It is face-to-face time.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
There will be some pivotal decisions to be made through the month and many involve deep personal relationships. Will someone new sweep you off your feet or will you amuse your current muse under the mistletoe? Life will bring its surprises and rewards to even the most undeserving of you, Gemini. So hang your stocking with care and see who stuffs it.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Celebrate the holiday season with a certain special someone, Cancer. It is a great time to improve any important personal relationship, whether for business or pleasure. For those seeking new connections, the chances of success surge with power through the month. That is, if you go out and look. You cannot phone it in ... although some of you may try.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Office celebrations and the resulting shenanigans ramp up this festive time of year. Leos are apt to get into the mix and match with co-workers. This can mean that you make new unexpected friends at work but it can also mean that you create your own set of work related complications. Oops. Heck, start to draft your new year resolutions in January.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Not only are you the party hearty hound of the holidays, you are also sought after to breathe new life into old, dreary gatherings. Who are you and what have you done with Virgo? How did you get all of this festive energy? Why ask why - Just go with the happy flow and see where you wash up ashore. It could be Bali! Of course it can also be the toxic Gowanus canal.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Libras should consider inviting far flung family over for the holidays and increasing the good domestic karma. It has been too long. But if this doesn’t fit in with your plans, at least try and spruce up your abode and make it seem more inviting. Hang some tinsel and mistletoe. You never know who will drop in with a gift. Ho ho ho.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
This is the time of year to put all of your dreams and desires into a long “to do” list. You communicate extremely well now and have an extra bit of charisma and oomph to convince even the skeptics. Scorpios who think but do not do, will lose out on a great opportunity. Those who just do without thinking may head in the wrong direction. Plan accordingly.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
This holiday season may lead to unexpected and over the top splurges. There are sooo many fabulous gifts, extravagant experiences and general spoiling going on now. Will you seek to gratify any crazy urge, Sagittarius? If so then be prepared for the eye popping bill at the end of the month. They say the best things in life are free... or, if I might add, at least on sale.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
This can be a very fertile time for you, Capricorn. Your plans begin to take shape and anything that has been on your plate now comes up to bat. The secret to your success is the connections you make and the helping hand you get from the most surprising people. Take no one for granted and be jolly to all. You never know who your secret Santa will be.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
There is something mellow, cosmic and other worldly about this holiday season. Maybe it is all of the happy celebrations that warm your heart. Or maybe it is the serendipitous good luck that brings you exactly what you need when you need it. Spread your good cheer Aquarius. There will be plenty of time to break down the barricades next month.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Your social life is energized now as pals reach out to you and even lost connections reconnect. Friendships may have a tendency to get a bit mushy and sentimental now. But that is what Pisces really like. Embrace those who have been supporting you all through the year. It is a time of gathering and grouping. Or is it groping? I get confused.
