Don’t be surprised if you begin to feel like a drone, laboring under the watchful eyes of a royal bee. Work seems to pile up and up. But you will find that what transpires over the next few weeks will make you more practical and ultimately more successful. Hopefully that will be enough to make you feel better as you nurse your hot toddie by the xerox machine.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Bulls embark on global enterprises that will bring them status, money and perhaps even a little happiness. You have the opportunity to make huge strides in the world arena. Don’t sit at home and wait for a delivery. See if you can make your mark on the world stage and meet new, exotic people who will help you in your ascent. Pack the mistletoe. You never know...
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Even Twins need a little cuddle now and then. The weeks bring you more than just a warm handshake or a chaste sit down on Santa’s lap. You are sexy and very willing to spread your special oil around. This will wind up working well for you as the month progresses. You will have your choice of New Years dates. Will it result in more new years resolutions?

LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
You have a lot on your holiday plate. So much so we should begin to call it a platter. How much can you handle and still keep up your high quality? Give yourself a short break, Lion, and see if you can prioritize and possibly delegate. Once you can focus, there is nothing that you can’t achieve. No matter how lofty, silly or impossible it may first appear.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgins become the life of the party and the sooner the better! You were beginning to sound humbuggy. Put on your holiday hat and dance with the crowd. Not only do you fun despite yourself, you increase your energy level, possibly plug into a little romance and increase your overall luck. Turn that frown into a smile. Folks will wonder what you are really up to.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Find unique and delightful ways to entertain at home over the next few weeks. Libras have a flair for creating the ultimate holiday celebration and can do so with ease. Gather kindred souls together and create a warm and condusive atmosphere. There is plenty of time to travel far and wide early next year. For now, hang your stocking and wait for it to fill up.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Now is the time when you can easily focus on any next steps in your life. Change is afoot so don’t trip out of the starting gate. The most important thing to remember is that careful planning is essential. Scorps have a few things on their mind and are ready to voice their opinion. And why not? You are on the mark and ready to make a point. Tell it to the elves!
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Have you been a spender or a saver this past year? Over the next four weeks, you find that the temptation to amass the perfect (expensive) gifts may become too great. Archers want it all no matter the price. But the fates have other plans. There are many ways to enjoy your time that needn’t cost a fortune. Let me know when you think of some.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
First impressions are lasting impressions now. Circumstances conspire to make you the center of attention. Make good use of your time in the center stage. Caps find that they can launch new projects as well as meet, greet and charm anyone they decide to razzle dazzle. So don’t sit home and wait for a knock on the door. Venture forth with a few gifts.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
You have a few tricks up your sleeve and good thing too. Things were getting too routine and boring. This is the time to harness your energies. Use your intuition and see if you can discern the motivations of others. In solving some behind the scene plots, you will be able to avoid those folks who are trying to undermine you. Be cool, calm, collected and successful.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Think of ways to gather friends together. Opportunities abound for a variety of pleasurable but platonic pastimes. Consider joining some new clubs or dancing in some new and more festive holiday parties. The folks you meet now spark your imagination and can benefit you in the future. Pisces are people who need people. Just don’t get too needy.
