The world may seem more cautiously optimistic as we wend into December with a rush of Capricorn energy. Let the holiday season festivities begin! Who knows who we can meet, greet and sweep off their feet? Whoo hoo.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Even bold Aries will be surprised at how much acumen and ability they have. You easily maneuver in powerful circles and find ways of pushing your agenda into the forefront of any discussion. Keep you eye on the big prize. Work carefully and slowly for long term advantage and success. Then you can rest on your laurels or, even better, a cushy lounge chair.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
There is something spectacular going on out there and you are the one to find it, Taurus. So get off your couch and start exploring your world. It might be a good time to take a class or two in something useful and fun. Think of new ways you can maximize your experiences and get others to join you. It will become a holiday season to savor.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Your love has no bounds now, Gemini. So express yourself in ways that attract those who will give your life new meaning and joy. These are deeply serious times and we can all use deep connections to give us stability and confidence. Today you may feel a little adrift. But tomorrow you will be able to conquer the world with your stability.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Connect with someone or something important, Cancer. The way to your success now is through the help of other people. They can give you a clearer perspective and direction as well as help you fulfill your personal goals. Face to face is much better than virtually. So put aside the devices and devise ways to forge more personal one to one interactions.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Health will be much more of a focus for you now. Leos may be feeling a little more tired than usual or may feel that they are not accomplishing as much as they would like to. Find ways to take some time off, reduce the stress and totally relax. Only then will you have all the oomph you need to party hearty during the holiday festivities, Yoga anyone?
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos feel totally inspired and creative now and why not? You have a bunch of great ideas that need to express themselves. So find ways of fully expressing yourself artistically, even if that leads to something totally practical and mundane. Everything that exists should be more beautiful. You add a bit of sugar to every moment. Swirl it around and take a sip.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Even open and friendly Libras may yearn for a moment or two of privacy now. It will be a good time to reflect and recharge in time for the holidays. Think more about what will make you feel more connected and contented. Then implement these changes or simple modifications into your daily life. You will feel more grounded and in control.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
There is no one more persuasive than a Scorpio with a great idea. And you are full of great ideas now. See which one captures the imagination of the public and run with it. You will be surprised at how far you can go on a mere thought. But ideas alone won’t get the job done. Get strategic and set goals. Today a thought, tomorrow a policy.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
There will be times when money will seem like the all-important thing in your life. But remember, Sagittarius, money is just a conduit to what you really want in life. It is a means to an end and not the destination itself. So master your finances and make the money work for you in anything you think is vitally important in your life. No, not buying a red Ferrari...
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
When life gives out lemons, Capricorns can make lemon chiffon pie with extra froth. So do it now while magic is in the air and you can do no wrong. It is a great time to flex your muscle and see where your great talent can take you. Connect with power brokers, get into influential circles and make your best moves. Who knows what 2020 can bring?
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
There is something divine about you now, Aquarius. You seem to know what will happen before it happens. That means that you can gain an advantage over those still wandering around in the dark. So spread you enlightenment and see what the path reveals. Also consider exploring the occult with a class in tarot or astrology. Or maybe you know that already...
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
If there is something brewing on the social scene, look for Pisces who is probably perking it up. There will be many opportunities to expand your social circle and meet interesting new folks. You are in the center of the action and can get the group to do whatever you want. How will you harness all of that power? I am sure that you will think of something.
