Feeling a bit more practical this holiday week? Why not? This week the Sun enters careful Capricorn. We can chart a new, purposeful course of action. Whatever happens now feels more powerful and strategic. Good; it’s time to get a push in the right direction rather than into mischief. Or is it?

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Aries feel on top of the corporate heap and can make great strides in any career plans. Can you make an indelible mark on authority figures or will it be more of a scratch? Maybe the lure of the boardroom is not that intoxicating to you. Does the suit fit or does it chaff? Decide what you really want and how much it will cost you emotionally and in your life balance.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
The world beckons. Get ready for great adventure that tips the scale on extravagance. Taureans yearn to travel but may not have the dough for it. At least not this week. So try to experience everything that life has to offer even if you don’t travel all that far. Get out of your usual comfort zone and try looking at the world from a different angle. Err prone with a six pack?
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Geminis have their time to dance the dance. Will you do it alone or with a certain delightful elf? You find the time to heat up your hormones to a crispy fry. But don’t let them burn to ash. The secret of your sexy success is to be a bit choosy and take things in moderation with an eye to future happiness. Okay, maybe you don’t have to plan that far ahead.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Partnerships become a more important part of your life. Cancers feel the need to solidify current relationships and seek new, practical ones. You may even aspire to advance your social standing with a new liaison from the cream of the social crop. Seek and you shall find. But will they respect you in the morning? Do you really care?
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leos are revitalized this week. You have more energy than usual and may even feel like taking on a more rigorous exercise regime or diet. Why not hire a personal trainer and get those buns in motion? Day to day work also takes on a new and brilliant hue. You become a star on the job. Show ‘em what’s cooking in the cubicle. Err what’s that smell?
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos can let it all hang out if they want, this week. Go out and holiday party hearty. Play, daydream, create. Tap into your artistic muse. Not only can you expand your imagination, you can also add a notch on your belt with a feisty romance or three. Make yourself presentable, available and open. The assorted festive flotsam will wash up on your shore.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Circumstances this week highlight any ongoing, intense family matter. It’s now or never to deftly handle what needs to be done. But remember - Nobody pushes Libra into a corner. Examine the circumstances, peel back and examine the real issues and set the record straight once and for all. You have nothing to lose but a lot of aggravation and yet another Christmas fruitcake.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Right or wrong, you are usually right. Now you’re more on target than usual. Scorpios always seem to know the appropriate thing to say at the appropriate time so tell it as you see it. Write a scathing letter to the editor or to some politician. Don’t wait too long though. Issues get old and stale quickly and you’ll go back to sniffing the fridge for unpleasant smells.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Money matters actually do matter now. What do you really value, aside from a darn good time? Any financial problems can suddenly seem surmountable so pull out the checkbook, pay your bills and get yourself back into the black. Save something for a rainy day. Fiscal stability can be in the stars if you set your mind to it. Heck, even you can do it, Sagittarius.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
The next few weeks are a revitalizing and refreshing time for you. Step into the center of the action and see who presses and impresses. Capricorns have ample charisma and just need a little more personal oomph and confidence. Begin new things, meet new folks and freshen up your over-ripe appearance. You’re the one to know. So get your act together and take it on the road.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
If there was ever a time to polish off your crystal ball and have a good psychic look, this is it. Aquarians plum the depths of their intuition and delve into the occult. You may even feel surprisingly invincible. No nasty surprises can be dredged up to harm you. Hidden enemies are thwarted in their dastardly deeds and you find opportunities to exact your revenge. Just wait....
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Pisces needn’t rely on the kindness of strangers now. Pals are there for you to provide ample moral support for any personal problem and great camaraderie just for the heck of it. Enjoy the holiday cheer while you can. The time may soon come for you to examine long term goals and commitments with an idea to downsize and belt tighten. ... in the new year!
