September 2018 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  September 3, Labor Day; 9th, Grandparents’ Day; 10th, Rosh Hashanah begins; the 21st, the International Day of Peace and the 24th, Sukkoth begins.

Save Our Planet and Put Money in Your Pocket

I have been trying for some time to help the planet in my own way, and I will share some of the things you can do to help our planet.  Some suggestions are:

Don’t run the tap water while you are brushing your teeth and doing the dishes.

Turn off the TV or lights when you go into another room for any length of time.  As my father used to say to my mother when we were young, “What is this, a light house?”  Save energy when possible.

Set air conditioning at 73-74 degrees if it is a programmable unit, otherwise you can always just turn it to medium.

Keep heat at 68 degrees or lower in the winter.  A sweater goes a long way to keeping one warm.

Clean out your freezer and refrigerator.  Eat leftovers or at least know what you have so that you don’t duplicate your purchase and may have to throw away more food.

Use cloth napkins on your table and let your family use their napkin all day before tossing them into the wash.  You are doing laundry anyway, so just toss them into the washing machine when needed.  Don’t do the laundry unless you have a full load of clothes.

Plant trees around your yard for the natural way to cool down your home during the hot summer months.

If you are having a BBQ or party in your home, think of using your regular dishes and silverware which can be washed and reused.  Most of us have several sets of dishes so it can be fun to mix and match dinnerware.  The dishwasher is an efficient way of cleaning your dishes afterwards and again, you’ve saved the planet. Buy biodegradable plates and utensils instead of disposable ones for any BBQ or event if you must use them.

When having a picnic, BBQ or get together, ask your guests to bring a bottle of wine, side dish or dessert to offset the cost of the party.  You will also have time to enjoy your guests because you don’t have to worry about the dessert and coffee coming out at the right time, etc.

You can buy used furniture at auctions, the Salvation Army, a garage sale or off of the web.  Much furniture is in very good condition and is a fraction of the cost and it keeps you from buying new.

Buy two-year old cars.  New cars lose 20% of their value just driving off of the lot.  You can get a good car for less money and a new car did not have to be produced just for you.

Use reusable containers instead of aluminum foil or plastic wrap.

If you are buying new appliances, get the efficient energy savings rated ones.

Have your home checked for window, door or attic leaks.  If your home is not air tight, you are throwing your heating and air conditioning dollars away every hour of the day and night.

Get low flow shower heads and/or chlorine filters for your shower head.  Apparently, we are absorbing 100 times of chlorine into our skin in an average 10-minute shower just as if we were drinking 100 glasses of tap water.  That’s pretty unsettling.

Use old maps as wrapping paper. (I was recently at a baby shower and the person having the shower asked that no presents be wrapped to save on paper.  A card was attached to each gift!)  Reuse gift bags and save wrapping paper from another gift, if possible.  Use recycled paper for your gifts.  Gift cards are a handy gift so that your gift recipient can get exactly what (s)he needs and there’s no wrapping!

Refill plastic water bottles with filtered water, iced or green tea, Crystal Light or anything else you like to drink.  You can reuse these bottles many times before throwing them in the recycle bin.

Print on the back side of used paper if you can or use the paper for scrap.  Save a tree and save money by not having to buy as much new paper for your home printer.

Bring a ceramic mug into work (probably the cost of one purchased coffee) with you so you don’t have to use paper or Styrofoam cups.  Encourage other employees to do the same.  Stop using plastic straws with beverages.

Instead of buying $4 lattes, bring your own travel mug to work with homebrewed coffee or tea.  You are saving money and the use of paper cups.

The Kindle has saved many trees from being torn down or you can borrow books from a library.

Magazines can be passed around to friends.  The impact on trees would be extraordinary and you will save some money in the meantime.  I also leave them at doctors’ offices so others can read them too.

Support local farmers in season!  It may be a little more expensive, but you can trust your veggies and fruits aren’t GMOs and are fresh.

Use reusable shopping bags instead of paper or plastic.  Many have them in their car trunks but never get them into the stores. Store them in the back seat so you will easily see them for any shopping visits.

Plan a circular route to all of the places you need to go so that you don’t waste gasoline (prices are ridiculous) or time.

Use a compost pile in your yard rather than throwing out food into the garbage which gets piled into dump sites.  You will have helped the planet and will be starting to have some pretty good soil for your own plants and trees.  Up here in the Poconos, the groups of deer who visit the property have a good variety of fruits and veggies, as well as their outer skins, that they love to eat.  They just about eat anything.

Sell stuff you don’t want on eBay, Craigslist or have a garage sale.  You will be getting a few dollars for your unwanted stuff and may be helping someone else get a perfectly good used item that (s)he would have otherwise had to purchase new.

Buy reusable or recycled products.

Buy bulk items which reduce wasteful packaging.

Reuse boxes or cartons to ship your own items.

Car pool to work, a party or an event to save on gasoline.  Public transportation is also a great way of getting home safety if you have had too much to drink at a party.

Bring in a lunch from home to save you money.  Even if you only spend $5 a day on lunch and $3 a day on coffee, that’s $8 a day, $40 per week, $160 per month or $1820 a year (probably the price of a great vacation!).

If you have leftovers you won’t eat this week, freeze them for another time so you may use them when you don’t have time to cook because of an appointment or event.

Visit local state parks which are usually free and close to home.

Take walks with your loved ones or walk a pet for exercise and entertainment.

Use windshield wiper fluid to clean indoor windows and mirrors.  This is a big savings over Windex and being this was formulated for outdoor use, it gets rid of dirt and grime easily.

Use newspapers to clean the windows and mirrors.  They clean better and you are not wasting paper towels.  Or buy the KAYWOS cloth available at www.kaywos.com.  You just wet it, clean a mirror, window, car windows, the car, a glass table, etc., and you do not have to dry it.  Then rinse and dry for the next use.  No harmful chemicals will be used in your home.

Buy recycled paper products such as bath tissue and paper towels, if possible.

Less than 20% of all plastic bottles are recycled.  Many are thrown into the ocean and can last for several hundred years before breaking down harming marine life.  That should make us rethink the use of plastic in our lifetimes.

Set up a paperless bill paying system with your bank or your creditor’s website.  You don’t have to pay postage, use an envelope and waste time writing a check!

I hope you can use some of these helpful hints to save our planet and keep some money in your pocket at the same time!

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Good luck seems to finally be following you around so get out and do what you want to be doing instead of only always handling your responsibilities.  You need to flourish and grow.  You should try to work on your own self cultivation and interests.  Do you have time for yourself?  When was the last time you tried your hand at one of your hobbies?  Are you stressed and unfulfilled?  Handle one or two major responsibilities each day but leave time for you to learn, be nurtured and accumulate knowledge.  What a great time to have some fun and let go of your overpowering responsibilities and obligations.  Romantic relationships are fun and you should try to get away to interesting and secluded destinations for a mini vacation.  Try to lighten up and chill a little.  Your hectic life style is not healthy. Be resourceful with your money as you seem to want to spend it like it’s going out of style.  Buy new clothes to replace outdated fashions, but you may not need as much as you think you do.  Feeling carefree and as if life is finally giving you the small break deserve to get your life back on track, makes you feel refreshed, relaxed and ready for more challenges. 

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

Partnership issues and relationships are of key importance now.  New beginnings, good communication and new adventures seem to be before you, so nurture the energy while it is here.  You are endeavoring to go into so many wonderful directions and receive splendid opportunities to help push you to a bright future.  You are strong (and yet a bit insecure) about taking these big steps, but you can do it.  Life is interesting, especially with your romantic partner.  Many new wonderful opportunities are being presented to you regarding business and personal partnerships; however, there is much going on to confuse the situation as well.  You need to decide what you need from a relationship and then choose whether or not your current partner helps you meet those goals.  Some challenges appear in school or your career. Perhaps thinking of changing your viewpoint on issues would help you understand things that have eluded you. Be positive about changes in your life and go with the flow since change is inevitable and it might as well be in your best interest. 

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Dealing with many issues regarding business and personal partnerships can be confusing and exhausting.  Miscommunication and a loss of wonderful opportunities are possible if you don’t get on the right track. There is just too much to do, but because you are overwhelmed and not as organized as you normally are, many opportunities will pass you by.  You wish you had more time to do the mundane tasks in life like clean the house, pay the bills, do the grocery shopping, etc. and yet you are glad that your creative juices are flowing and that you are handling your artistic and spiritual sides.  Getting your important papers in order seems to be on your mind, so just do it and get on with your life.  Organization, prioritizing and securing your life seems to help you understand what you need to positively proceed in to your future.  Hard work, study, social events and volunteer work help you network and get your name out there a lot quicker than staying home and doing accomplishing little around the house or with home projects.  Things have been crazy lately, but they will calm down soon.  Handle the many little jobs you need to get done so you can clear your mind of the clutter. You should take a new class in jewelry making, painting, poetry, writing, etc., to get those creative juices flowing again.  

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Finances are your main concern, yet again.  Things are going in a positive direction for you, but you need to make some hard decisions about your money and possessions.  How important are they to you?  Is your family more important?  You may find out that money and possessions aren’t the only things you need in this lifetime.  Moon children are trying to make a very secure future for their loved ones, but they do get sidetracked easily so keep on your path and go to the future and find wonderful rewards. Long distance travel, higher education (including training classes, lectures, seminars, workshops, etc.) will benefit you on your job or in getting a better job.  Focus on the many great opportunities that are around you so you can grab them and make them a reality. Dealing with financial issues would also help you to focus on your future goals.  Changes in home life seem positive, so don’t be afraid to go with the flow now as you are in control of your destiny (even if you don’t believe it!).  Compromise should be your family’s mantra this month.  Be smart and let others do the talking.  Your job is to listen and acknowledge others.

LEO – July 22 – August 22

This is a great time to make a plan of action about your direction in life.  Taking control of your situations would help you move in that direction.  Even when situations do not go your way, your determination and persistence make anything possible.  Travel, higher education and your philosophies of life will aide you to get to your desired goal.  Stop thinking on such a grand scale and take care of the small stuff first so that the larger stuff can take care of itself. Learning how to react in all situations helps you feel more confident and as if you can take on the world.  Your tolerance levels are improving and you realize that not everyone can be exactly like you or have your unbelievably high standards. Start celebrating the differences around you rather than relying on consistency.  Romance is also in the air.  If already attached, it seems that you will most likely have a change of heart and want to change things about the relationship or change the relationship itself! If not attached, you will finally want to commit to the one you love. Try to show the ones you love how much you really care about them by showing them affection and attention.  

VIRGO – August 23 – September 21

Career issues seem to be moving in a different direction and they seem very positive!  You feel more in control of your life and its direction as you start to see the accomplishments and kudos that others are giving you for your contributions.  Even though you may be somewhat pessimistic about some areas of life, your spirit will lift as things you’ve wanted start coming to you.  Career seems to be the most important issue around you this month.  You use your intellect and logic to get to your goals, but you may also find yourself expressing yourself much too much. You may be totally misunderstood now so choose your words carefully. Expansion and promotions are on the horizon and if you play the game.  It will be much easier for your company to finally recognize what you do for them.  If self-employed, this is an excellent time to expand and try new markets as success is in the air. Scattered energy, intellectual abilities, a zest for life and work push you to so many positive avenues.  Be open to opportunities so that when opportunity knocks, you can open the door. 

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

Friendships may change or will be strained by an event or situation that you are not comfortable with.  Talk things out or you may lose someone close to you or someone whom you depend upon.  You may also be handling many situations for others as well, so get your life in order before helping those you love.  You want action, change and to keep going in a positive direction so join groups, travel, have fun and meet new people.  You shine this month, so be prepared for adventure.  Networking is an important tool to help you accomplish your goals.  More friends come into your life and you seem to make very important partnerships with them.  Joining associations and volunteer organizations will help you achieve some of your goals.  Start visualizing which hopes, dreams and wishes you would like to manifest and start promoting them as a positive thought each day.  Don’t handle too many obligations and responsibilities as you usually do.  Balance is the key to a happier life. This is a great time to let others pay you back for all the kindnesses you have given them throughout the years.  Smile and just say thank you to those who wish to help and you will be surprised at how easy it will be to accomplish everything. 

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

It seems as if many situations are unfolding and you are trying to sort through them all.  Prioritize your list so that you deal with only the most important issues now.  You can always do the small stuff later.  Changing your appearance, going for a makeover, taking a class to learn something new and deciding what you truly want out of life is before you.  Choose wisely. Much good luck and positive energy seems to favor you, so do the impossible.  You want to accomplish so much, but your scattered energy and varied obligations keep you from fulfilling your dreams.  Creativity and illusion play an important role in relationships, so see reality for what it is.  Partnerships need to be re-examined and steps taken to fix all the issues that are making you annoyed.  Be patient and tolerant now as others are trying to live up to your expectations; however, sometimes you expect too much from others.  They will appreciate the kind words.  Accept help from others.  Focus on your future results so that you attract the energy that you need to accomplish your goals. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

This is an opportune time to budget for the things you truly need.  Your wants can come at another time.  You get obsessive about saving for a particular project or item and you will do all you can to make it happen in a relatively short period of time.  Traveling, running around like a chicken without your head and spending money seem to be your issues for this month.  Being the soft-hearted person that you are, you want to help others but this may be the time to concentrate on your partner and yourself.  Sensitivity is high and change is in the air.  Career or company differences may force you to leave your current position for a new and better one where you will be praised for your opinions, hard work and intellect.  After dealing with so many recent changes and challenges, it will be nice to be able to sit back and relax.  Love life is blooming; however, it just doesn’t seem that your partner and you get too much time together due to varied obligations and responsibilities.  Spend quality time together, if possible. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Family issues seem to be your main concern.  Deal with the outstanding problems and do whatever you can to make peace easily.  Things will settle down and you will feel as if you’ve accomplished much.  Sibling issues may arise again; however, if you do not have siblings, then it may be issues with those you feel are as close to you as a sibling would be. Family related issues need to be dealt with quickly so that everyone can be at ease with each other, friendly and peaceful.  Short distance travel is activated, so go for that long weekend trip and take a friend or family member.  A lovely drive to the shore or up to the mountains will rejuvenate you!  You really need some quiet time for contemplation or meditation since you have had too many issues on your mind; you also need a good night’s rest.  If additional training or schooling is required (for a new career or self-employment position), this is a great time to start looking into courses for your advancement.  Whatever you do to enhance your career is very positive. 

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17

It is time to chill and get some relaxation and enjoyment out of life.  You are handling so much lately that you barely have time to sit down to watch TV or read the paper.  Your obligations are many, your responsibilities take up your leisure, but with you handling so much, you will be surprised at how quickly things will finally fall into place.  There are many unusual circumstances around your family and close friends that you may want to handle.  Creativity is enhanced now, so don’t let it pass you by.  Take an adult education course in something creative or that would help you use your imagination and innovative abilities.  Journaling your thoughts or a dream journal are fun hobbies.  Your mind is so preoccupied with so many things to do that you don’t seem to be setting any time aside for yourself.  Taking care of others is a wonderful gift to them; however, it would be a special gift to yourself if you thought of how to make your life a little less frantic and overwhelming by concentrating on your needs.  Handling family issues is overpowering, but you seem to have the coolest head in the family and your stability is very much appreciated.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

There may be changes in romantic relationships or you are looking for love in all the wrong places!  Be open to having friends or family set up blind dates as they only have your best interest at heart.  Be open to meeting those who you may feel do not meet your criteria as you may be surprised.  So many things seem to overwhelm you now, but you are going into better times with fantastic opportunities just ahead of you.  School or training is fun but should be used to help move you forward and not just as an escape.  Moving from your current residence, or if that is not an option, redecorating your home to make it seem totally different will make you feel as if you have accomplished the impossible – making your home feel the way it should, safe and secure, beautiful and new.  Things may be intense from time to time, but once you make your mind up to go into a certain direction, you will be free to just go and accomplish everything that is important to you.

January Horoscopes 2018

Important Dates:  January 1, New Year’s Day; January 15, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day; and January 31, Lunar Eclipse in Leo.

Ever hear the expression, “Once in a blue moon?”  A blue moon is when a month has two full moons which seems to come around every year and a half. 

Remember, as I say every January, the astrological dates may be different for each sun sign than your original birth sign.  Every year, a few signs move one day before or after the date of particular signs the year before.  You are still the sun sign you were originally born.

New Year, New Beginnings

Every New Year’s Eve most people make up a list of New Year resolutions.  Many of them are a testimony to the intent of the individual.  I will eat more healthily; I will be kinder to everyone.  I will be patient; I will help out with more charities and/or church outreach programs, etc.

Think of New Year as a virgin chart or map that can take many unexpected turns; it can have highways, interstates, small town dirt roads with one light or cities with a stop light at every block.  You pave the way for your life to unfold in the New Year.  Saying you are going to do this or that is very commendable, but most resolutions don’t last more than two weeks.  These are your goals or aspirations to make yourself a better person, but many resolutions are a complete turnaround to who you truly are.  It’s kind of hard to keep on that new unexplored road.  Why not just let the year unfold before you and then deal with each opportunity or challenge as it comes along.  We really don’t know what changes or obstacles lie ahead of us, but the only thing that can define us as a positive person is how we react to the situation that is unraveling around is.  Will you freak out? Will you blame others?  Will you be there for someone who needs your guidance or help or will you just let them drown in the negative circumstances around them and walk away? The New Year is like baby energy.  Everything is new, everything is a different experience.  You learn by dealing with each instance or circumstance individually and then learn through experience as to whether it was a positive or negative event that you would want to repeat or not.  You can gently coax life into a specific direction or towards a particular outcome, but it is rare that you can totally change the whole experience.

Don’t try to drastically change yourself.  You are you for a reason.  You may wish to alter one or two of your more negative qualities, if you’d like, but the New Year gives you new reasons and fresh ideas about what you may wish to have in your future and what you may wish to avoid.  Start there first and then plan on being the best person you can be and that’s all you need to do to enjoy your 2018 New Year.  Happy New Year to all.

ARIES –  March 20 – April 18

There will be some unexpected surprises during the New Year month.  Expect everything and you won’t be surprised when it happens.  Partnerships need a romantic boost and perhaps some more activity in whichever way the two of you have fun.  Get out and enjoy yourselves.  Even though the holidays have been exhausting, you two need alone time together.  Work will continue to go well and friends will be as supportive as ever.  Try to do some new things such as writing, artwork, crafting, or attending a few new classes on new subjects you always wanted to try.

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

There is so much you want to do and you don’t know what to do first.  First off, relax and chill now that the holidays are behind you.  Spending time with family and friends for the holidays were exhausting, but you had a great time renewing old friendships and catching up on family happenings.  Being mindful of your budget would be a good thing since you may have spent a bit more money than you had anticipated on holiday gifts and travel.  Some issues with your partner may overwhelm or confuse you, but don’t jump to conclusions.  Everything will work out for the best interest of the two of you.

GEMINI – “ May 20 – June 20

Getting finances in order would be a good task for the New Year.  Start saving a little bit extra, if possible, and pay down those credit cards or store charges.  You don’t need that kind of pressure hanging over your head.  In the meantime, get back into your studies, whether it’s research for formal education or personal curiosity.  Teaching some of the subjects you know well will bring in some additional income that will be a blessing.  Writing, sewing, crocheting or art would be perfect pastimes for those cold winter nights.  Get those creative juices flowing again. Getting close with family and friends will help you to deal with the winter easier and force to get you out of the house.

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

Home life becomes more important now even though things have slowed down after the holidays.  You may want to redecorate your home or think about indoor painting to change the feel of your home.  More time is spent with your partner and children and you will have more time to go out to lunch or dinner and find out what they have been up to.  Your career may be a bit demanding, but with some shifting of priorities, you will have all the time you need to be with the ones you love.  Some minor issues with your partner may make you a bit stressed, but it will be short lived.  Taking care of yourself and what you need for the new year is of major importance. 

LEO – July 22 – August 22

It’s time to stop worrying about others and take care of yourself, your goals, dreams, and aspirations.  Friends look to you for guidance, but it would be so nice if you could talk to others about your issues for a change.  You hold too much negativity inside from everyone telling you their sad stories.  Release this negative energy by prayer, burning white sage or meditation.  You need to attract more positive energy now and do not need to be constantly surrounded by negative vibrations or people.  Extensive changes are going on within you.  Deal with the things in your life that make sense to you and that you want to follow or do.  Now is the time to start fresh in making others know that you will help when you can, but you may not always be available because you are taking care of yourself for a change.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 21

After all the pressures of the holidays and you wanting everything to go perfectly, it is a time to relax and replenish your energy.  It is also a time to seriously take care of your health and that might include a yearly physical if you have been putting it off or getting a symptom looked at by a health care professional.  Delve back into metaphysics or esoterica. Organize your thoughts in a journal which would be helpful in understanding some things you have gone through.  Taking note of your dreams would also be helpful.  It seems you are looking for answers and this may help.  Spirituality is at the forefront of the year for you so make the most of it.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

What a lucky time for you.  Things are going in a very good direction and can only get better.  Even if life throws you some curve balls, you will come through them just fine.  Partnerships are important now so make sure you are tending to the one you love.  If not in a relationship, this may be the perfect opportunity to make your intention known to the universe that you want a romantic significant other that would be in both your best interests.  You are ready to have a serious relationship, so keep the door open on that issue.  You may be trying to reinvent yourself and may want to spice up your life with a makeover, new hairdo, new hair color or new makeup.  Go for it.  It’s fun to make these little changes as they give us a new spark to attract others to you.

SCORPIO  October 23 – November 21

This is a perfect time to get all of your priorities in order.  You may be doing more thinking than doing at this time, but when your list of things to do is completed, you will be motivated to start getting things done.  Good luck is blessing you now in relationships and anything that you have a partner in, whether it is with family, friends or co-workers.  A collaboration would have positive results.  Share your ideas at work and with those closest to you and accept help in making them come to fruition.  This is a time to shine, so think about what you really want to do in this new year and start making plans to make them come true.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

After the holidays, organize your finances and it would be to your benefit to save more than you have in the past. You never know when that rainy day will appear and you will be prepared. Also, update your important papers, bank accounts, wills and life insurances for revised beneficiaries so that your wishes will be carried out when the time rolls around.  It seems to be a time where you may be misunderstood so be sure that everyone understands your intent.  Small quarrels might arise from misunderstandings, so be sure that doesn’t happen and be very clear about what you mean.  Many unexpected changes in your way of thinking or your belief systems may be confusing at first, but all will make sense to you and you will be happy with the results.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

So much energy around you and so little time!  You want to do everything and try new things and get out of a rut you may have recently felt that you were in.  New energy for in-depth study, putting your whole being into new subjects or areas of life, and just enjoying yourself is at hand.  You may even feel the need to improve your romantic relationship or look for one as this is the time when things in this area seem very important to you.  Taking things more seriously than before is also a change that you will feel, not that you haven’t been serious about life before, but you are more aware of what you want to accomplish to make your life complete and you are ready to do what it takes.

AQUARIUS –  January 19 – February 17

So much is going around you.  You have been in a whirlwind that you haven’t had time to take a breath and do anything for yourself.  This is a good time to relax, rejuvenate and refresh your goals and dreams for the upcoming year.  Start handling one small personal thing at a time and you will be surprised at how much you will have accomplished within a week, month or year.  Other areas, such as work, will continue to be busy, but it seems you have a handle on it.  Just be sure to leave work at a normal hour from time to time, you do need a personal life as well.  Perhaps deciding on getting a romantic partner who would be a good influence on you to have some fun. It’s just a thought, but one that I think would make you happy and look forward to the new year.

PISCES – œFebruary 18 – March 19

There is a lot of energy focusing on secrets, hidden truths and perhaps some people who are outright lying to you, so double check information gotten from others before you make decisions based on their half-truths.  Gossip will only get you into trouble now, so use your intellect to squash rumors no matter how juicy they seem.  If not, they will come back to haunt you in some way. Spirituality may have recently been pushed to the side. Perhaps meditation or prayer would also be a good way of getting back into your belief system.  Be sure you are getting enough rest and eating properly so that your health stays satisfactory. If you feel some additional exercise is warranted, by all means, add that to your 2018 goals.

Happy Hanukkah, Yule and Christmas to All!

There is not one universal holiday greeting for this time of the year.  There is Hanukkah, Yule and Christmas.  These three versions of this sacred holiday which tends to be different; however, all seem to center on sharing time with family and exchanging gifts to signify the love that we share among our families and close friendships.

What do you say during the holidays if you don’t know what proper phrase to use?  Do you still say Merry Christmas even if you don’t know if someone is Jewish?  I don’t think it really matters.  I was saddened when Merry Christmas became a thing of the past and Happy Holidays had caught on.  Yes, I respect other religions and their celebrations, but my holiday is Christmas, so why can’t I just say it?

There is the religious side to these holidays and going to a ceremony, church or temple and then there is the metaphysical side of the same holidays.  All are small pieces of the puzzle that makes our beliefs who we are and collectively, they form the beliefs of the human race.  Religion thinks on a larger scale.  It talks about our God, our Lord, the Universe, Jesus and the sacrifice Jesus made for all of us. Metaphysics is more about the overall spirituality of the season and what it represents throughout our lives, how it reflects on our loved ones that we have lost and deals with individual practitioners, family or local metaphysical groups with your same beliefs or perhaps esoteric churches where the dogma is not as stringent as in other religious institutions. Yule is called Yule or Yuletide (“Yule time”) is a festival observed by the historical Germanic people.  When it was Christianized after a few adaptations, it then turned into Christmastide. It then became a celebration of the Winter’s Solstice, December 21 with festive activities, feasting and fun.  They celebrated the nature aspects of the time.  Many celebrate in their own way with their own traditions and cultural based beliefs.

Whatever your belief system is, enjoy the holidays.  I don’t think it matters what you say to others during this festive time, but make the intent clear! Call up friends and family that haven’t been in your life for a while and assure them you want them in your lives.  Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Yule would be a nice way of breaking the ice, staying true to your beliefs and getting back in touch with those people who mean the world to you!

Happy 2018!!

ARIES – March 20 – 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 truly feel appreciated.  You will have fun, enjoy the celebrations and won’t think twice about spending more money than planned.  Keep to some type of budget.  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.  Your practical side comes into play where you realize you need more rest and must limit the drain on your energy.  All in all, you are active, busy and having fun.  You are 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 to you for future happiness, prosperity and good health.  Holiday travel seems important; family conflicts may arise but seem unimportant to you.  If you compromise, when 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. Change is good even though you may not feel it at the present time. 

“GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Home life tends to get less stressful as you try to plan the perfect holiday party.  Even though your life needs balance; you already know this and are trying to make positive adjustments.  However, you seem to have lots of friends and family members who are willing to volunteer their time to help. You may 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 would like to be acknowledged for that, but just be happy that you are able to run your life the way you want to.  You will have fun being invited to many get-togethers or at the very least, exchanging gifts with treasured friends and family. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21
New beginnings in the home with redecorating or much needed repairs, help you focus on your goals.  You may be starting over or feel as if you need some positive changes quickly.  Differences of traditions and philosophies of life will be tested and you may be persuaded to look at other perspectives.  Even though you may want to stay home this holiday season, be adaptable if your partner wants to travel to visit family.  Staying home means you have to cook and entertain; however, it also makes you feel comfortable to be within your own home to do whatever you want to.  Using your intellect to make logical decisions rather than emotional ones will help you choose the better option.

LEO – July 22 – August 21

This is a good time to rejuvenate, relax and do whatever you feel is important for yourself.  As usual, you will go the extra mile for anyone in need.  This is also a time when 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 needlessly stressful, so if you can relax and plan well in advance, your holiday celebrations will run quite smoothly.  Getting your list and checking it twice is a great way for a Virgo to start their holiday shopping.  Situations with personal and business partnerships may be confusing and upsetting at times, so be prepared to stand your ground and give your candid 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.  The energy around you is positive and open to so many wonderful possibilities to accomplish your future goals and dreams.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

You may wish to reconsider some of the more expensive gifts you have purchased and try to cut down a little bit on the grandeur of the season.  Consulting with a partner on financial choices or where you spend the family riches will allow you to spend more freely when you really need to buy things you need.  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.  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.  

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20

Be prepared to double check your travel plans as it seems as if there may be a small glitch that hinders you.   This does not mean that you should not travel, but it seems to be a time where extra planning and Plan B will keep everyone calm and in control of their holidays!  You just need a relaxation time where you can unwind; additionally, family time is suggested 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, unexpected changes can be more fun than our original plans.  Have an adventurous time!

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Get up and go to holiday parties, friends’ get-togethers or that holiday getaway with a loved one even though he or she may not want to leave home.  Try to be a little more sensitive to a loved one’s feelings as it seems you may be somewhat tactless or thoughtless to his or her needs.  This may be because you are so caught up in the whirlwind around you, that you don’t have time for petty nonsense.  You may be on different wavelengths so try to find common ground.  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 at work will result from any effort you put into making positive changes with your workload or that of your co-workers.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

New friends and associations help propel your career through this holiday season.  Networking becomes effortless as you meet many more people through new clubs, memberships and organizations.  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.  Go out and have some fun.  Accept holiday party invitations and do some of the entertaining yourself.  You will feel very relaxed and others will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17

Your creative and artistic abilities are intensified during this festive season so don’t be afraid to show off your abilities to all. 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 more.  You have done enough!  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 last year.    

œPISCES – February 18 – March 19

You will be given alternatives to your original ideas.  Do not dismiss them or give up the opportunities that these changes are suggesting.  They may be much 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.  The negativity around you is disappearing and you need to reinforce the positive energy that you know is 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. If you need to make adjustments to goals, now is the time to make them.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Luck is behind you if you stand firm and decide you are going to make your life more positive and happy. Consider what steps you need for a happier and healthier life and start going in that direction a little each day. You feel a bit overwhelmed and confused about your direction in life and perhaps the universe is doing you a favor by forcing you to choose and/or make some important decisions. Creativity, romance and children are all being dealt with in a positive manner.  If you are in a rut or are doing the same thing over and over again with little results, it’s no wonder that the universe is pushing you into a new direction.

’TAURUS – April 19 – May 19

This is a great time to start new beginnings, perhaps look into buying a home instead of renting or to get a better job rather than being upset all of the time at your current one. It seems you are thinking about changing jobs because of office politics or because you feel you deserve more money.  It is about time that people give back some of the time and energy you have given them throughout the years. Health and partnerships go hand in hand this month. Pay attention to details so life can move in a forward direction. Even though times are extremely busy and confusing, there is a period where you will be lucky and things will expand beyond your dreams.

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Romantic and business partnerships are on the agenda.  How do they seem to be going?  Did you need to change an aspect or two?  Handling important paperwork also makes you get more organized and prepared for what life may bring you.  You are a very busy person who may at times make more work for yourself than is necessary.  Make time for fun.  You can’t work 24 hours a day although you feel that you need to get ahead.  Try to pay off debt or at least pay things on time to avoid late charges.  You are trying to save for certain items or at the very least want to accumulate some money in the bank for financial security. The old cliché is true, “Take time to smell the roses” before they’re gone. 

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Higher education and your ability to understand new philosophies or religion will be tested.  You may be considering changing your major, course or school.  Take some time to book a trip to an event you’ve always wanted to attend or to a seminar or expo you think you would benefit from. Go to your local library for some free classes on subjects you’ve always wanted to study. You are curious about so many things, but don’t seem to have the time to do much about your passion to learn. Taking on-line courses may be the way to go as you can study in the comfort of your own home in your pajamas, if you wish, and with no makeup. 

LEO – July 22 – August 21

Creativity is at a high point so take advantage of this energy and passion.  Be sure whatever you get involved in is legal, thought through and that you are not living in denial.  This is also a time where you may feel that things couldn’t get more confusing or crazy, but you are wrong!  Life is exciting now with many new positive opportunities for you to grab if you are ready to go onto your next big life’s adventure. Long distance travel may be important now, so if you haven’t taken the trip you wanted to over the summer, this may be the time.  Prices are down and the crowds are minimized.  Good luck coming to you from your career.  

VIRGO – August 22 – September 21

You will have a good deal of opportunities to prove to upper management that you are right for a new position.  Be on guard, everyone is watching you to see if you are worthy of a promotion or transfer which includes more money.  So many wonderful options are given to you about your future career or work-related life. You feel better about so many things in your life and really feel as if you are doing a good job with whatever you are trying to accomplish.  Your future looks bright and you have so many wonderful chances to make your life the way you truly want it, so go for it.  

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

Friends are important now.  They seem to bring you good luck and will help you with whichever problems or issues you have.  This is also a great time to organize and materialize your hopes, dreams and wishes.  You take on too much and one of these days you will finally understand that others need to help you for a change and that you don’t always have to be the one to volunteer or take care of others. This is a time for you to handle your own responsibilities and to work hard to reach your goals.  Make sure you also take care of yourself by resting regularly.  You also seem to be very sensitive and have too much on your mind.  Instead of saying, “No, thanks, I can do it myself,” you are now going to say, “Yes, thank you.”  

˜SCORPIO – October 23 – November 20

There seems to be a lot of responsibilities on your shoulders and you are getting a bit angrier about not having the help you should from family.  You are ready for some changes in your life, but you have to find the areas of life you want changed and then do something about it.  It just won’t happen on its own. You may be just a little harder to get along with than usual because you have so much on your mind that you are not thinking about winning a popularity contest as well.  Life may throw you some curve balls, but you’ve been down this road before and know how to handle stress and responsibilities.  This is no different other than you will be stronger and more dedicated to getting what you want as you feel it is your turn to shine. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 21 – December 20

Take a new course, enjoy a lecture or teach a class in which you have an expertise.  Many changes are coming in the way you view yourself and your life.  You are coming out of your shell to meet the world and see what it has to offer.  The difficult times seem to be a thing of the past.  Money issues continue to on your mind so deal with personal finances as quickly as possible.  They keep you busy.  Deal with the issues that need your immediate attention and let the other issues stay on the back burner for now.  Remember that your projects are the most important even though you wish to help others.  Time management is imperative now if you want to accomplish everything. Writing or artistic projects take the center stage.  

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 19

Dealing with finances is a good thing.  You are making your financial decisions more logically and analytically than ever before.  Get everything in order once and for all.  Things lying around the house aren’t helping you to plan a bright new future.  Financial issues need to be addressed and if you decide that money has to be moved into something safer, or if you wish to save more, and spend less, etc., this is the time you need to do it.  Your dreams are being manifested easily so you may wish to be sure what you want in your life before you start attracting things that may not be in your best interest.

AQUARIUS – January 19 — February 17

This is a time for you to enjoy your life and not stress over the small stuff, so just let things go that don’t need to be in your life.  If work isn’t going your way, it may be time to look for something else to do for a living.  Things seem to change on a daily basis.  What a great time to sit down and write a book, in your journal or plan some short trips you have wanted to take for a very long time.  Communication with those you love is important now.  Be sure you are calm when you discuss volatile matters since you can’t take back things that you say even if you apologize for them.  This is also a time when you are running on empty.

œPISCES – February 18 – March 19

Work and home life seem to be at odds, but with some clever thought, you can turn life around to suit your needs.  However, it does not mean that you should stand idly by and do nothing about your own future. You know better. Creativity and artistic abilities are your friends this month.  You are perhaps redecorating your home or doing something very creative to make your home feel fantastic.  Home life starts to fall into place now.  Things that you feel you need in your life are a real possibility if you get up the initiative to follow through with plans and dreams.  Life is interesting and confusing at the same time.
