ARIES – March 19 – April 18
Career opportunities are plentiful and you are probably considering changing jobs or parts of your job that will bring you more attention, more income or where you will use your intellect. Things are getting boring. Your attention is not on work at this time, but in planning all the wonderful shopping, parties, travel and fun you hope to have during this month. You want to enjoy all the family and friends you may have lost touch with this year. Your practical side comes into play where you realize you need more rest and must limit your help to others who are always taking advantage of your kind nature. Spending money for the holidays is just the beginning. You will have fun, enjoy holiday celebrations and won’t think twice about spending more than planned on a gift for a loved one. Your generosity of spirit is magnetic and extends to your friends who will expect an extra special gift. You may over spend on those you love. All in all, you are on the go, having fun, and connecting with friends and family who love your company.
TAURUS – April 19 – May 19
If you find yourself in unexpected circumstances, just know that you are being guided on a different path. You may not wish to travel on this path; however, it would be in your best interest to at least look at the wonderful changes around you and the opportunities it will bring for future happiness, prosperity and good health. Holiday travel seems important; however, make sure your travel plans are solid before venturing to your holiday destinations. Family conflicts may arise and seem unimportant to you, but the issues are important to others. Be tactful with your partner since much energy seems to want to make you “right” or in control of every situation. If you keep a cool head and compromise where appropriate, things should run quite smoothly. Don’t get into a battle of wits with your family and friends since this is the season of forgiveness and peace of mind, body and spirit. Change is good even though you may not feel it at the present time.
GEMINI – May 20 – June 19
Is work stealing time from spending it with loved ones? Compromise. It is time to think things through properly and make an informed decision. You also get annoyed when people question where your time is spent and that you may be able to organize your life better. You do more than most of the other signs and you would like to be acknowledged for that, but just be happy that you are able to run your life the way you want to or else, you just pick up and find happiness elsewhere. Home life tends to get somewhat stressful as you try to plan the perfect holiday party. Balance issues between your work load in your career and the responsibilities of your family weigh you down. Why can’t you delegate? Is it up to you to handle everything? Miscommunication is prevalent this month so be clear about your intent or what you are asking others to do for you. Repeat things so that you are on the same page as well.
CANCER – June 20 – July 21
Make buying presents a special family occasion. Even though you may feel that change is unsettling, it will be a positive experience, so go with the flow. Differences of traditions and philosophies of life will be tested and you may be persuaded to look at things from different perspectives. Even though you may want to stay home this holiday season, be a bit flexible if your partner wants to travel to visit family. Staying home means you have to entertain and possibly cook; however, it also makes you feel comfortable to be in your own home to do whatever you want to. Love life and family seems to bring you much happiness and joy, even though you are handling too much of the responsibility. New beginnings in the home, perhaps redecorating or some much needed repair projects, help you focus on your goals for the future. You may be starting over or feel as if you need the changes that are being thrust upon you. Using your intellect to make decisions rather than emotional ones will help you choose the better option.
LEO – July 22 – August 21
It is important for you to entertain your family and friends, but be mindful of your health. Take enough time for yourself and let others give you a hand in the kitchen or with the preparations. This is a good time to rejuvenate, relax and do whatever you feel is important for yourself and your happiness. It is a time to help others get more organized and as usual, you help others with their challenges and issues and are always going the extra mile. This is also a time where you will take on the responsibility of a family issue. Do the best you can to help those family members compromise; however, don’t beat yourself up if it does not go the way you feel it should. You have done your best and sometimes things just have to work themselves out. Arguing is probable if you let yourself get caught up in the politics of an issue. Be aware of the explosive energy surrounding you and do your best to diffuse all negative situations.
VIRGO – August 22 – September 21
Holidays are always stressful, so if you are more relaxed and plan well in advance, your holidays will run quite smoothly. Getting your list and checking it twice is a great way for a Virgo to start their holiday shopping. Know what you want to spend and then comparison shop so you get the best price for the item, as if you wouldn’t do that anyway! Try not to take life so seriously now as it is supposed to be fun. If there are any issues that you do not agree with, let them go for now and deal with them after the holidays. Situations with personal and business partnerships may be confusing and upsetting at times, so be prepared to stand your ground and give your frank opinion in a tactful manner. Career may be changing in many ways and it would be helpful for you to know in which direction you would like to proceed. Do you want your own home-based business? If so, go for it now as the energy around you is positive and open to so many wonderful possibilities to accomplish your future goals and dreams.
LIBRA – September 22 – October 21
Much good energy is around you so plan what steps you would like to take to accomplish some dreams and goals. Your personality shifts to being more self-confident with less issues regarding insecurities and anxieties. This is the time for you to accomplish what needs to be done. Career, travel and spiritual pursuits all seem to become important at the same time so be prepared to be scattered and yet, you will be having the time of your life exploring all the possibilities around you. Spending money for beautiful things is a constant in your life; however, it may be time to see if you really need any more jewelry, house accessories or gifts. Consulting a partner on financial choices or where you spend the family riches will allow you to spend more freely.
SCORPIO – October 22 – November 20
Be prepared to double check your travel plans as it seems as if there is a glitch that hinders you. This does not mean that you should not travel, but it seems to be a time where extra planning and alternative plans will keep everyone calm and in control of their holidays! Running around at the last minute to get your shopping done can be an exhausting task, so use the web to order some on line gifts, if you feel that’s appropriate. You just need some down time, relaxation time, and family time for your own enjoyment and well-being. You would like to plan things in advance and that’s a wonderful idea, but be flexible enough to know that all plans do not turn out exactly as we hope. Many times, the things that change can be more fun than our original plans. Have a wonderful time.
SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20
Home life may be a bit too hectic for your taste and you may try to go out or not deal with specific issues. They will not go away, so deal with them directly. A good outcome will result from any effort you put into making positive changes in work, formal education, long distance travel and finances, so start thinking about which areas of life you would like to change and start making a few small changes throughout the season. Leave your house and attend holiday parties or go on that holiday getaway with a loved one even though your partner may wish to stay closer to time. Try to be a little more sensitive to a loved one’s feelings as it seems you may be somewhat oblivious to his or her needs. This may be because you are so caught up in the whirlwind around you, or the holiday season, that you don’t have time for petty nonsense. You may be on different wavelengths so try to find common ground and compromise to make a happy holiday season.
CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19
Networking becomes effortless as you meet many more people through friends, new clubs, memberships and organizations. New friends and associations help propel your career through this holiday season. Be careful not to let your personal and business lives conflict with each other as it won’t be worth the time and trouble. Deal with each area of life separately and complete any unfinished projects or endeavors. Being organized for the upcoming year will help you get a jump on your goals. Lists will help you with this organization and will help you focus on your priority issues. Go out and have some fun. You can’t be all business or too serious now since this is the time to be happy and jolly! Accept holiday party invitations and do some of the entertaining in your own home. You will feel very relaxed and others will appreciate your thoughtfulness.
AQUARIUS – January 20 – February 17
You may wish to kick back and unwind during the holidays and not have the traditional holiday meals or parties with your family. You may wish to keep a day for yourself where you could organize your home, entertain other family members or friends or just relax and watch the blinking lights on the Christmas tree or other holiday decorations. Energy abounds and you wish to accomplish so much. You can do anything you need to do at this time, but limit yourself to a few tasks per day so you can re-energize and continue on the fast track that you have been living on for the past year. Your creative and artistic abilities are amplified during this festive season so don’t be afraid to show off your abilities to your family and friends. Spirituality is more important as you unfold the meaning of your traditional beliefs. This is a good time to think about what you want to do in the future, perhaps in a creative field. What a wonderful time for you to look into new cultures and traditions.
PISCES – February 18 – March 18
Positive energy has started to stick to you and all you need to do is reinforce the energy protecting and guiding you to do the right thing. Love issues may be a tender spot, so understand what the issue is and then do something to resolve it. Using your mental agility will help you to optimistically deal with any concerns that come your way. Career issues may be pushed to the foreground and some very important decisions about your future will need to be made. Be sure you have all the facts before jumping to conclusions that may be incorrect. If you need to make adjustments to dreams and goals, now is the time to make them. The holidays will be exciting and fun because you have planned so well. Loved ones would be adaptable enough when unexpected circumstances change your plans at the last minute. These changes may be better than your original plans. If circumstances seem confusing or dramatic, this is the best time to take that energy and turn it into a positive result. Things go very well, then fall apart, so it’s best that you just deal with situations as they happen rather than projecting the best or worst scenario for them.
