We go in holiday over-drive this week. December looms, starting with Thanksgiving and moving quickly into Christmas mindset mode. Ho ho ho. The planets are not only jolly but generous. Jupiter redirects and trines Sun in Capricorn. Start to gather up your cosmic gifts for all these turkeys and see who has been naughty and who has been nice.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
All your plans for corporate domination may have an opening this week. Aries can capitalize on all their hard work and planning and can secure a place at the boardroom table. Of course if you are more interested in entrepreneurial goals, it is a good time to break ground on your new business. Santa rewards the good. Now you are very good.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
All eyes have been on you for so long, you may forget that they are even there. But this is no time to forget to cultivate your public face. While things might have gotten out of hand in the past few months, this week will prove to be a good time to consolidate your efforts and reap international acclaim. The sky is the limit. Fly it in first class style, Taurus.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Although you love to play coy, even you will be caught up in the game of love now. And what a game it will be! Secret admirers who have been biding their time to make their move will now make their move. All of a sudden you are the one to meet, greet and sweet talk. Can you handle all this adoration without it going to your head? Ho ho ho.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Prepare for a rush of holiday inspired festivities that will enliven current relationships and maybe even create new and exciting ones. Store up your energy so you can last through the new year in party mode. And in that time you will find ways to expand your list of friends and try out some new organizations. How about Occupy the Nearest Party?
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
When it comes to your career, the bigger the better now. Leos find that a particular professional project opens a big door of opportunity at work. Showcase your talents to the big wigs and see where it can lead. Of course you might just decide to keep a few pet projects tucked under your hat. All the better to hide your own big wig designs.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
What is it that inspires you, Virgo? You will find out this week as you get drawn into several different types of artistic ventures. And you know what they say - Nothing ventured, nothing gained. So explore, experiment and take a risk. It may not all succeed but so what? Your creativity hits a high note, even if you can’t sing. So avoid carolling.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Deck your home with not only Holly but a bunch of other friends. Get into the holiday party scene and make a scene. Not only will you have several weeks of home entertaining ahead of you, you will also be able to reconnect with long lost relatives. Try your hand at genealogy. Who knows what buried treasure lies at the foot of the family tree? Or is it a secret?
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Let your words fall like early sugarplums now. You will need to be especially diplomatic and coaxing in many of your relationships. And this is because you are angling for some pretty big end of year favors. Certainly an expensive gift could help pave the way to your eventual success even more so than mere words. But that is up to you, Scorpio.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
You will work hard for what you get but that should not be a concern to you because you are indeed working hard right now. And there is a light at the end of the work tunnel. All your efforts can pay off and you will be well heeled for the holiday season. So eat, drink and be very merry now Sagittarius. Even rats on a treadmill deserve a coffee break.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
If there was anyone who could use a good party it is you, Capricorn. So don your party hearty hat and plug into the holiday party circuit. It is time to see and be seen. And you can even make a scene. All is forgiven because you are so dynamic, charismatic and engaging now. I think the wire hanger holding the mistletoe over your head is a very nice touch.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
There is a lot bubbling below the surface that is waiting to burst out. Secrets should be shared ... and why not? It will make you seem all knowing and mysterious. And that can be very attractive. Plan some festive surprises at home with some good friends and family and don’t be surprised if you are surprised yourself. Why am I not surprised?
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Your desire to make a name for yourself becomes an obsession. And maybe that oomph is what you need to finally get some long dormant plans launched. Talk to advisors and do your research. You have toiled too long in the background and now you deserve some recognition. Success is at hand, Pisces. See if you can transfer from the hand to the wallet.
