SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23 - Dec 21)
Don't make commitments. Let go where you need to and find a comfortable way to share what you have. Relationships intensify. Don't ignore some health problems. You need more vitamins and more rest. You feel generous toward loved ones and they reciprocate. Some travel can be problematic. Don't push your luck. Some news from a friend will make you think of old memories. A little joy comes from a child.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 - Jan 20)
Don't let anxiety move you to take actions you'll regret. Create a plan for the coming year about having more of what you do want. Don't wait for things to reach a breaking point. You probably have good instincts about what other people need. Avoid hesitating to make decisions, and showing concern for others will get you the reward. Some promise you made will put you in a relaxing state. Cheer up. You deserve it.
AQUARIUS (Jan 21 - Feb 19)
Nostalgia makes you feel the need to look back and close one chapter of your life so that another can begin. If family members are overly moody, just give them some space. Spend time helping children get in touch with their creative side and they will help you rediscover your playful side. Establish limits and respect them. Avoid ignoring worthwhile friends. You will be treated to some wonderfully romantic times. A resolution for the next year puts finances at the top of the list.
PISCES (Feb 20 - March 20)
For the holidays, don't over-burden yourself. It's not your job to see to it that everyone has fun. A friend comes back into your life with a surprising turn of events and plenty to talk about. Teamwork suffers from misunderstanding. Make sure everyone is well informed, especially if you have to work on holidays. Avoid creating tension. On New Year's Eve, a lunar eclipse will bring you a most startling encounter, like love at first sight is made of. Happy holiday season, Pisces!
ARIES (March 21 - April 20)
If you're worried about the financial situation, it's time to make a new plan for the future. You've got just the right attitude and a strong vitality to make this a happy holiday time. Insecure or needy, concerned about holding on to the past, a person or uncertain gains. Going along with changes is your best right now. Keep your ambitions for the year ahead and all plans for the future. Share ideas with friends and by tending to your usual duties for now.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21)
Optimism can be contagious. Positive influences make your social and professional efforts turn to success. Avoid being too possessive and jealous. You'll have to confront passionate emotions, then deny them as harsh feelings get out of control. If you need to protect your self-esteem, do it. True loved ones will provide a save port in a storm. Trust in your intuition and for the holidays, at home with a few friends is probably the best.
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21)
Good humor helps if financial woes set in. You think big and want to take action. The best approach for the new year is to release your worries about loss. Your emotional reactions intensify as companions resist cooperation and become domineering. Is that what you really want? Money may be tight. Don't let it cause arguments. Value what you have and if you celebrate in a quiet way it's okay. Rethink these issues and if temporary changes arrive, go with the flow.
CANCER (June 22 - July 22)
Some unresolved feelings exposed with consideration will become intellectual awareness. You have to face your relationship insecurities. Holidays give you better excuses to spread those famous hugs of yours around. Friends, family - it's your idea of nirvana. You have to be careful with your wallet. Your loving company is the best gift of all and others appreciate that fact. Also, you will be extremely busy keeping long days and longer nights. In the next year, focus on your own needs.
LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)
Protect vulnerable feelings and turn inward to receive spiritual guidance. You're famous for your generosity, but you still have to pay all those bills next month, so behave. Your goal for next month is to get yourself in great(er) shape and that will be easy to accomplish. The new year may come a little early for you with some special treats. A smart conversation puts things back on track. Don't say "yes" until you're ready. Happy holidays, Leo, with lots of entertainment and romantic attachments.
VIRGO ( Aug 23 - Sept 23)
The planets impose controlling limits on your financial, romantic or creative resources, and intense desires are met with restrictions. Your savior - your hard work - will be a success. Mercury Retrograde stalls that and turns self-expression into reflective restraint. That's no good as your mood increases around holidays and that could lead to a moody disagreement. Put your defenses aside, embrace a creative, loving spirit and prepare yourself so you can enter the new year in great holiday feelings.
LIBRA (Sept 24 - Oct 23)
The holiday week comes guns-loaded with many planets as Venus is forced by Pluto to put the brakes on passionate desires and the New Year's full moon eclipse will make the day more emotionally chaotic for a few days. The lure of sensual pleasures is strong. Keep expectations low and you might enjoy the holidays more nicely. If jealousy arises, don't let it get to you. If you are single, have a ball. New people who enter your life will be there to stay for better or worse.
SCORPIO (Oct 24 - Nov 22)
Secrets and negative emotions are pushed into the open. Can you be kind under this pressure? That will dissipate anger and repair relationships. Buying, selling, bargaining and investing are subjects worth studying and thinking about. Some property and home matters will be in a lucky mix. Someone may have ordered something really delightful, especially for you. Holidays will be fun but don't run into exes - that could be a tad stressful. Spend the holiday season on passion of the sweet kind.
