Despite our urge to party hearty through the remainder of 2013, we might actually benefit from a serious and reflective pause with Sun in Capricorn. Let’s close the year assessing our prior acts and resolving to do better. Okay, okay, enough of that. Now pass that champagne!

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Round out the remainder of your year with a big corporate push. You get noticed for even a meager effort and can gain the upper hand in any corporate tussle. Aries might even increase their end of year bonus with one last lucky move. Resolve to push more professional oomph into your inbox. Either that or into your after hours office party with the bosses.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Escape the holiday doldrums with a wonderful last minute vacation. Taureans need a break and a certain you-know-who can deliver the tickets. However if time and money are tight, spend your waning holidays with a choice array of close-to-home exoticisms from foods to folks. There is nothing more energizing than seeing life from a new, exciting angle.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Don’t let all that flirtatiousness dissipate into the atmosphere. That would be a terrible waste. Geminis have buckets of love to give and are looking for the chance to spill it. But what about the excess emotional overflow? Sometimes there is nothing more attractive than vulnerability. However that is usually when you have used up all your other moves and shakes.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Cancers are happiest when they are cocooning with a certain special someone. Do you have that someone? If not, no excuses. Use the rest of the year to cement current relationships or create new ones. If you are in the market, go and holiday shop. Be discerning while you have the varied choices. Opportunities like this don’t come around often enough for some of you.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leos become very efficient and hard working. Oh goodie. Celebrate the holidays with a rousing last minute effort around the office. Tie up loose ends and finish off any long pending projects. Not only will you receive a great package of good will, you also have the satisfaction of knowing that you did a job well done! Uh, does delegating count?
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
This is your time to be inventive, Virgo. Don’t restrict your imagination - give your artistic muse the chance to flourish. You may concoct an artistic masterpiece or a memorable end of year basheroo that will have them talking for months. Remember that a thing of beauty is a joy forever. So choose your guest list carefully and include many, many things.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
There is no better time than to enjoy the holidays in the comfort of your home. Libras can bring the action to their door rather than have to go out and seek it. Spruce up your surroundings and liberally decorate with an attractive, festive crowd. If you have decorating ideas, try them on for size. Genius is 99% inspiration and 1% perspiration... or something like that...
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Do you have something interesting and weighty to say? If so this is the time to say it. Scorpios are usually very careful with their words and may even be a bit secretive. Try to open up, give in your feelings and let yourself emote. You can now speak from the heart and be heard. Unlease all your passion. Oops. Do I smell something burning?
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Your financial timing could not be better now. Do you have any capital gains to reap? Is there a bonus to be invested? You can turn a small pile into a large one with a little homework and effort. Sagittarians turn their considerable talents to fiscal matters and can make a few extra year end bucks. Make them do whatever, you lucky thing.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Capricorns suddenly feel that all eyes are upon them. There are so many interesting new possibilities, new ideas, new folks and new projects that it will be difficult to choose the best ones. Don’t rush into anything - give yourself time to assess the best opportunities. You have ample charisma, social magnetism and everyone’s unblinking attention now. Uh oh.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Let your imagination run wild Aquarius. Somehow life will take a few surprising turns that will leave you breathless and relieved. Good - you were getting too stale and sedate. Open your Pandora’s box of secrets and release your assorted ids, gremlins and demons. Sweep out the old and welcome in the new. This will be some new years celebration!
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Find any excuse to mingle and make merry, Pisces. This is not the time to sit home and wait for the phone to ring. You are encouraged to deepen your social pool and swim in new schools. Reconnect with old compadres and make a few new ones. You find many co-conspirators who are ready and raring to get into all sorts of mischief. Don’t disappoint.
