ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Your career takes off. And this is something that you have been working on for while. Can you control the direction or your ascent? It will be hard to control the fates as what you and the powers-that-be do will be unpredictable based on emotional reactions. But that is part of the fun and excitement. Keep telling yourself that, Aries.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
You need to get out of your usual routine, Taurus. And what better way than to pack up your stuff and travel. If you have the time and the money, a last minute trip could be beneficial and with unexpected rewards. If you need to stay close to the home fires, heat up and expand your horizons through study, exotic food, film or folks. Get hot.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Love is complicated and especially so now. Maybe its because you treat your amours like a smorgasbord and have piled too much on your current plate. You are a charmer and attract many admirers. It is not too late to change or temper your diet, Gemini. Keep your sweet tooth and nibble appropriately. Just don’t serve Christmas fruitcake.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Relationships can heat up and melt the snow. So nurture and treasure your partner and find creative ways to celebrate the season together. Cancers who are currently seeking a special someone will have their choice of possibilities. But you have to get out and look. Don’t sit by the fireplace and wait for Santa to stuff one in your stocking.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
There will be a temptation to put all your energies into your job now, working hard and long into the night. But don’t. Try to find the balance between the demands of the job and the joys of celebration Take time out for a festive office party or, even better, an out-of-office party. All work and no play makes Leo lions frazzled felines.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos are the toasts of the town and the party meisters of the moment. Savor every event and brand it with your own personal charm. Eat, drink and be very merry. Too too soon you will have to refocus your attentions on the bottom line and find ways to fund your assorted fun times. In the meantime, find a well endowed benefactor to cushion you.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Gather family members around the hearth Libra. Find ways to reach out to even distant relatives to join in. There may be some out of control emotional encounters but that just adds to the memories as the year progresses. But avoid any home improvements at this time. You think you like the walls red and green but just wait until the spring when the light changes.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Do you have a pithy opinion to share? Hold off for a few weeks, Scorpio. You never know how your words will be received and the impact it will have on unintended recipients. Plan your strategies instead and see how you can quietly implement your personal goals unobtrusively, craftily and ultimately successfully. Vie for the element of surprise rather than front page news.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
As carefully as you may plan your finances, the next few weeks could bring a change in circumstance where you invest with your heart rather than your head. Quick and easy money is not what it appears to be, Sagittarius. So tuck into your current nest egg and sit on it for a while. Celebrate the holiday frugally. Sip the champagne but don’t bathe in it.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
How many parties can you attend this holiday season? Try for as many as possible to meet, greet and sweep folks off their feet. Capricorns are primed to advance their agendas, set long postponed projects into motion and reap the rewards of all their hard work. Emotions can also run high. Will you lose your heart under the mistletoe? You can only hope.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
A secret admirer could become obsessed with you. So be on your toes Aquarius, and don’t give your heart just anyone. And yet, the excitement and mystery of an enfatuation could make this holiday month one to remember. You can also become more involved in charitable efforts. You know it is better to give than to receive. At least that is what they say.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Plan a few festive get togethers and join some new clubs or groups. See how you can expand your social circle into a huge revolving globe. Pisces will meet many new and interesting folks who can be important and helpful to you through the next year. So take the lead, get more involved and showcase your immense talents. Deck the halls.
