Horoscope 12-14(7)

 Aries

Your heart and emotions are on the same page, Aries, but they may not be on the page you want them to be. It could be that you're reminiscing about an event from the past. What was once a happy set of encounters now leaves you feeling like there are thorns in your side. Focus on the present and let the past become history.

 

 

Taurus

Let your sensual, nurturing instincts shine through, Taurus. Rely on your sixth sense. If things start to get rough, remember that you have the ability to keep your cool. Not only is this an extremely important tool but it's also essential to maintaining any sort of stability in the situation. Keep your footing at all times. Your sanity depends on it.

 

 

 

Gemini

A solid grounding is apt to be extremely important to you today, Gemini. Hearts may be broken or won, depending on how well you play your cards. Keep in mind that the slow and steady contender is most likely going to win this race. All the talk in the world will get you nowhere. Today is about quality and action. Shoddy efforts will yield shoddy results

 

 

 

 Cancer

 

Regardless of how much the storm seems to be raging out of control, you will be able to handle it, Cancer. Have confidence in your grounded nature. There's a reason why you take the time to address the details and carefully plan your moves. Today is one day when you will see the rewards of your diligent actions, especially in love, beauty, and your deepest emotions.

 

 

Leo 

Hold on to your hat, Leo, and be ready for some action. You're coming to a critical point in your emotional cycle when your heart feels heavy. You may feel pinned down by a huge weight, like you're being sucked into quicksand. Grab a branch and pull yourself out. Rise above the current situation with the help of a lofty perspective.


 

 

Virgo

In a string of intense emotional dramas, the last thing you need is one more, Virgo. Unfortunately, it looks like you're going to get just that. Once again, an incredible romantic scenario is coming to a head, and your emotions are in turmoil. Hold still, wait for the hit, and then proceed. If you have the feeling that you're going to blow up at someone, simply walk away from the situation.

 

 

 Libra

There's a great deal of grounding energy in your world today, Libra, which might work to smother your fire. Whatever happens, don't let the embers burn out. One of the assets you bring to the group is a strong dynamism that gives people the courage to change. Be a fighter in the ring. Remember that at the end of the day, you need only be satisfied with the performance of one person - you.

 

 

 

Scorpio

Take pressing matters to the hilt today, Scorpio, especially when it comes to romantic issues and emotional needs. You have all the data you need to make a valid point. You have a whole battalion of facts to back you up, so fire at will. Your feelings are strong and intense. Don't ignored them under any circumstances. Go with your gut instincts before you trust anything else.

 

 

 

Sagittarius

As you try to express your opinions today, you may have the feeling that someone is kicking sand in your face, Sagittarius. Like a kid on the beach, you have nothing but the raw elements to use to defend yourself. Use one of your greatest gifts - the power of your mind - to combat the opposing force. Your ability to outsmart others will be your most powerful tool.


 

 

Capricorn

Your boat is likely to be rocked today, Capricorn, to the point where you and all of your belongings could go overboard. Be prepared to swim ashore. Grounding and stability are the keys to maintaining a healthy attitude, especially when it comes to ever-fluctuating emotions. Issues regarding the home and people's possessions are likely to surface in a dramatic manner. Listen to your heart for the answers.

 

 

 Aquarius

Calm down and get centered, Aquarius. This is an extremely sensual day that's likely to pique your emotions. You're apt to receive input from each one of your senses, so keep these channels open and available for new information that's trying to break through. Don't be hasty. You're better off taking a reserved, receptive approach today.

 

 

 

Pisces

Today is your day to shine in every way, Pisces. There's a concentration of energy in your favor, so act boldly and without hesitation. Your emotions are leading the way, and your heart is barely a half a step.

M.W

Horoscope 12-21(10)

 Aries

Aries, you may have been a little difficult to be around lately. You like to treat yourself to a little moodiness from time to time, but the people around you might appreciate a little cooperation. There are days when you don't want to grow up, when it's time to play. Do you get enough time to play? Think about it.

 

 

Taurus

One thing is for sure, Taurus, you'd rather be in bed with a good book than out in the stressful world. But you may be feeling like you're missing out on some of the good things in life. How much time do you spend with other people? Why not try to find someone who shares your taste for good books and bed? Think about it!

 

 

 

Gemini

Your greatest quality is generosity, Gemini. Your nature isn't to give to others in order to get something back but for the pleasure of giving. This is how you get power and light. Think of all the people in the world who give of themselves without expecting anything in return. You don't have to make much effort to be one of those people - just give it a try.

 

 

 

 Cancer

It's important to take a hard look at yourself and know where you're going, Cancer. A little self-analysis never hurt anyone, especially when you feel like you aren't getting anywhere. But you have a tendency to go a little overboard with self-criticism. Take today to try and ignore that little voice in your head, or even prove it wrong!

 

 

Leo 

Leo, you have a tendency to run away from confrontation, but today you might not be able to avoid it. Your partner or a family member may be putting pressure on you. It's possible you've already worked out a solution to this problem. Tell your partner what he or she wants to hear so you can do what you want later.


 

 

Virgo

You may feel a little weary today, Virgo. It's a good time to take stock of your life. You may have gotten some news about someone that has caused you some pain. This is a good time to rely on the support of your relationship in order to reenergize yourself. Take the time to let others take care of you.

 

 

 

 Libra

You have the gift of being able to get your great ideas across to others. In your family, you may be the one who teaches your children about life and its responsibilities. Today someone might teach you something you didn't know. You should never forget that education means communication, and communication is the exchange of ideas.

 

 

 

Scorpio

There may be tension in the air as you go about your day, Scorpio. The leftover fatigue from the past few days is starting to wear on you. You may have managed to get into an argument with someone close to you, but there might be a reason for this. Take advantage of the situation to clear the air with your friend.

 

 

 

Sagittarius

You don't live your life by society's rules, Sagittarius. Your freedom is what is most important to you. But despite your independence, there are days when you have the sudden, sinking feeling that you could wind up alone in this world. Today you should really begin to think about what the word "commitment" means to you. Is it really so scary?


 

 

Capricorn

Capricorn, life around you today almost seems like a (bad) dream. It's almost as if people are talking, but nothing intelligible is coming out of their mouths. Perhaps two people close to you are having problems getting along. You feel like stepping in and telling them to calm down and really listen to each other. Days like these are when people need you the most.

 

 

 Aquarius

You can't spend all your time running from one activity to the next, Aquarius. You need to take a break from time to time. You have all the energy you need, but you should think about relaxing yourself as a whole. Your body may need its batteries recharged. Pretty soon you will be in the thick of the action and you will need all the energy you can get.

 

 

 

Pisces

Today's planetary configuration has you wondering about an aspect of your life that causes you a good deal of hardship, Pisces. Maybe your partner is often away and this is particularly hard on you. You'd like your sweetie to be there through thick and thin. This may be causing some tension in your relationship. Have you talked to your partner about your feelings? If not, you really should.
