Georgia Nicols Horoscopes Dec. 23-29, 2012

All Signs: This week, Christmas day will be full of surprises, detours and unexpected happenings. (More than usual.) Regrettably, it’s also an accident-prone day. However, the overall tone is one of wanting to improve everything in a practical way. By Thursday, tension before Friday’s Full Moon will build up. But hey, we deal with this every month and we always survive. Fiery Mars now moves into Aquarius where it will stay until February. This will charge the batteries of Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, as well as Aries and Sagittarius. When you’re revved up and raring to go, it’s good to blow off steam with outdoor exercise. (Of course, for many, pushing 50 or 60 is exercise enough.)


Aries March 21-April 19

This is a high-viz. time because the Sun is at the top of your chart acting like a spotlight on you, which means bosses, parents and VIPs notice you more than usual. (This means the police notice you more than usual as well.) Travel for pleasure will please you. You’ll also be attracted to art exhibits and cultural events. Romance with someone from a different background or another culture might blossom. You will be quite charged with energy now and your desire to relate physically with groups will be strong. Some of you will enter into competition with others or join sports-related clubs or gym classes. You’re going to prove something and you’re gonna to do it with style!


Taurus April 20-May 20

You want adventure and a chance to learn something new and broaden your horizons. The good news is you can pull this off because right now you’re attracting gifts, goodies, money and favours from others. In fact, this is a good time to ask for a loan or any kind of financial support. Meanwhile, intimate relationships will be particularly sweet and meaningful. New romance that begins will be intense and memorable. You’ll notice that your ambition is increasing in the next few months because you’ve decided there is something in particular that you want to achieve. Oh boy. Once you make your mind up about something, it’s gonna happen.


Gemini May 21-June 20

Things are looking good because lucky Jupiter is still in your sign until the summer. But right now, you feel passionate about everything. Venus is encouraging warm, diplomatic exchanges with others, especially partners, and Mercury opposite your sign makes you particularly talkative. You’ll enjoy chatting with everyone. But a new influence that is being introduced is a desire to travel or do something different. You’ll love taking courses, getting more education, training or learning something new because you want to expand your experience of life. You’ll be particularly ambitious in areas dealing with publishing, the media, medicine, the law and higher education.


Cancer June 21-July 22

You need more rest now because the Sun is far away from you. Recognize this need and get more sleep. Relations with partners and close friends are a strong focus. In fact, you can learn a lot about your style of relating to others with a little self-scrutiny. A work-related romance could be in the works. Certainly, praise and possibly a raise are in the stars. In the next month, you will probably have confrontations with others. These might be disputes about shared property, insurance matters or inheritances. You might be forced to re-examine your own position on something. In fact legal conflicts over negotiations are practically unavoidable. Sexual relations will be intense and transforming. Be reasonable about your expectations from others.


Leo July 23-Aug 22

You’re working hard because you feel the need to be on top of your game. Both Venus and Mercury guarantee pleasure, romance and fun social occasions. However, do take note: Even though you will be busy socializing (and this will continue for months), in the next six weeks, while Mars is opposite your sign, you will be at odds with partners and close friends. Oh yeah. From your point of view, it seems that they are annoying. And perhaps they are. But you find it difficult to compromise right now. You also find it difficult to be patient with others. Although this is a chance to clear the air of secretly held grievances, you can also use this energy to co-operate with others to get a lot done.


Virgo Aug 23-Sept 22

This is a fun-filled time for Virgos. You want laughter, entertaining diversions, romance, and a nice table at a good restaurant. This is a perfect time for vacations, sports events and playful activities with children. Jupiter continues to boost your reputation among your peers, and Venus urges you to redecorate at home so you can entertain with confidence and style. (Some of you are tackling home repairs as well.) But in the next six weeks, your drive to get better organized will become almost maniacal. Not only will you be hustling your buns, you will delegate to others as well. “Let’s get this done!” You’ll be equally keen to improve your health.


Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You’ll enjoy redecorating and fixing up where you live in the next two months. It’s easy to be charming and diplomatic right now because both Mercury and Venus are helping you to smooth your comunication skills. But fiery Mars is going to entice you out of your home until February. Mars wants you to play! You want to seek out amusing diversions and enjoy sports, athletic activities, and creative outlets. It could trigger conflicts in romantic situations or conflicts with your kids. (Romance will be physically passionate, by the way.) But Mars also makes you flaunt your duties and decide to do just what you want to do instead of what you should be doing. We all know that one.


Scorpio Oct 23-Nov 21

Your busy pace continues because you’re out there talking to everyone, taking short trips and reading and writing more than usual. But you love it. Many of you will have an opportunity to boost your earnings now and you certainly are dreaming of money-making ideas. In addition, the wealth and resources of others continue to benefit you (and will continue this way until the autumn of next year). Make the most of this. However, you will have to practice patience at home because family members might be challenging the status quo. Or perhaps renovations and visiting guests are making life more hectic. Whatever the cause, demonstrate grace under pressure. You have will power and your surprising self-discipline. Be cool.


Sagittarius Nov 22- Dec 21

Money! How to make more? (And hey, you’re spending it as well.) Admittedly, this is an excellent time to buy wardrobe items because you feel attractive and charming to others. Mercury makes you extra talkative but fiery Mars is now revving your engines until February in such a way that you will be unbelievably persuasive. This bodes well for those of you who write, teach, act or sell and market for a living. Few will be able to resist your pitch! Meanwhile, partnerships will continue to help you until next summer. In particular, you’ll be more involved with foreign places and people from other countries. Some will become involved with someone older or richer. (A rich partner is a great labour-saving device.)


Capricorn Dec 22-Jan 19

This is a strong, energetic time for you because the Sun is in your sign. In fact, soon Mercury and Venus will move into Capricorn, which is a wonderful influence for your birthday month. Job prospects can certainly improve and will continue this way until the autumn. In other words, you can improve your existing job or get a better job. Meanwhile, fiery Mars is starting to make you focus on your finances for the next six weeks. You’ll feel proud of what you own and you might want to earn more. The bottom line is that you will want to figure out how to make the things that don’t work, work for you. And why not? They shouldn’t sit around gathering dust.


Aquarius Jan 20-Feb 18

Mars is entering your sign now to stay until February. This will energize you and make you more forceful, decisive and assertive. You’ll find it easier to go after whatever you want and gratifying to be more physically active. However, Mars is pretty pushy! There’s a chance that you might be coming on too strong with some people – just be aware of this. This is a great time to schmooze, have fun and enjoy group activities. (A friend could become a lover.) Opportunities for vacations, meaningful self-expression in the arts and chances to explore the entertainment world, show business or the hospitality industry continue until next autumn. Lookin’ good!


Pisces Feb 19-March 20

This is a popular time! You will be asked for your creative input to design, layout, office arrangement, furniture selection, whatever. Some will also begin a romantic relationship with their boss or someone older. In fact this is quite likely because another influence shows secret love affairs taking place in the next two months. (Oh my.) In the bigger picture, continue to look for ways to solidify your home base and enjoy family because this is a great time for real-estate opportunities. This blessing to home, family and real estate continues until the autumn of 2013. It also means you will experience greater joy within your family and family members will be more generous to each other. Gosh.
