The holiday season is upon, and Monday’s intrepid horoscope expert serves up her reading of the stars and what they could have in store for you in December.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Pack your bags because this month, you want to get outta Dodge. You need a change of scenery and you want adventure! If you can’t travel, then explore your own backyard. Or instead, you might be thrilled to take up a new study that transports you into a whole new reality. The underlying note of your entire month includes an amplified sex drive. Woot! In fact, some will begin a romance with someone “different” or from another culture. (Fun way to learn a new language!) Oh yeah.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This month is complicated. Fiery Mars is opposite your sign, which means you will be annoyed with partners and close friends. Meanwhile, the Sun will heighten your focus on shared property, inheritances, insurance issues and anything that you own jointly with others. This combination could trigger conflict with someone. Fortunately, Venus and Jupiter will soften things and attract money, loans, mortgages and inheritances to you. Yes, it’s your turn to get richer! Venus will also guarantee that romance is sweet and passionate.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You will need more sleep this month Ironically, even though you may have less energy to keep up to your schedule; Mars is now moving into the part of your chart related to your job, which means you will have lots of energy for work! Go figure. In fact, you will want to work so hard in the next six weeks, you will start to dictate and delegate work to others as well. “Move that mountain!” Relations with partners and close friends will be warm and cozy and the silly errors at work will reduce.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
This month, your ambition is to get better organized in every aspect of your life. You want to do what you can to feel you’re living right and making good choices. The more you conquer loose ends in your world, and the more you feel you are in control, then the happier you will be. Conflict with kids might be likely for the next few weeks. Nevertheless, you personally want the freedom to express to others about what and who you are. Romance will be passionate and physical!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
You are entering a lovely month full of opportunities to party and socialize with others. Yay! Sports events along with playful activities with kids will appeal. Romance will sizzle! New flirtations are likely, mostly because you feel sexy and good about yourself. Creative activities will also appeal because you need to express yourself through some kind of creative work. Meanwhile, your home scene will suddenly be topsy-turvy because of visiting guests, redecorating projects or renovations, or residential moves. There will be great activity where you live!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
This month is about home, family and your private life. You will cocoon in personal surroundings. However, in conversations with others, you will be surprisingly strident and forceful! Your confidence and talking to others in the weeks ahead will help those of you in sales, marketing, teaching, acting and writing. Because you will identify strongly with your ideas and opinions, be careful not to coerce others into agreeing with you. Nevertheless, if you have to defend yourself – you will do so with energy and style!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Heads up because you’re heading into a busy month. The pace of your days will accelerate with appointments and visits plus short trips and increased reading, writing and studying. Your everyday surroundings and activities will be pleasant. At a deeper level, you will discover there is more love in your everyday life than you knew. You might identify with your wealth. If you have money, you feel you’re a good person. If you don’t, you feel discouraged. But it’s obvious that you’re not your bank account. (Of course, you are your car.)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
This month, you will be more attuned to money, cash flow, earnings and finances, which will prompt you to reflect upon your values. In other words, what really matters? As you survey your assets and movable belongings, take note of whether or not you are in charge of what you own. Do you own your stuff or does it own you? This will make you want to have greater control over your life through the things you own. Meanwhile, this week fiery Mars moves into your sign, making you proactive. Expect great activity and a desire to work hard to get ahead.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
The Sun will be in your sign this month giving you a chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. You will attract people and favourable circumstances to you. This is a great month to buy wardrobe goodies for yourself, which might be wise because you want to project a confident image to your world before you start to earn more money next year! However, a hidden activity might take place that makes you feel vaguely irritable. Guard against little, self-defeating facts. This could be because someone is working against your best interests.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Two contradictory influences are at play this month. One influence encourages you to be low-key and work alone. By contrast, the other influence will push you to be involved with groups, clubs and organizations. In particular, you might be physically competitive through athletics; however, you will achieve your goals by working co-operatively with others. This is an excellent time to set goals for the future. Don’t worry if you feel pulled in two different directions – this is appropriate. Just go with what feels right at the moment.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You will love the next four to six weeks because the Sun is in the part of your chart that is “your home.” This makes you notice your friends and interact more with clubs and groups. Friendships and group relationships are suddenly important. In addition, this will be the best time for you to work and cooperate with others to achieve your goals. You see that it’s important to establish who you are among your friends. Meanwhile, your ambition will be aroused! You will be gung ho to accomplish something and nothing will stop you. (All the more reason to get “a little help from your friends.”)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You make a fabulous impression this month! You don’t have to do anything special: People just admire you. Obviously, you can use this to your advantage and ask for what you want. Push your agenda because doors will open! You look so attractive to bosses, parents and VIPs, some will strike up a romantic relationship with a boss. All of you will enjoy good press and others will ask for your creative input and your creative ideas about something. Meanwhile, travel appeals! You are excited about the possibility of doing something that will expand your horizons and your experience of the world. Bon voyage!
