December 12-18, 2012
For All Signs: Since November we have experienced a parallel between Saturn and Neptune. This will continue through early January. Saturn rules hard core reality, the rules, and limits of our lives. Neptune rules the spiritual, the ethereal, that which is illusive or having no boundaries. Saturn's practicality displays the "lie behind the curtain" as seen in the Wizard of Oz. Neptune represents that which is perfect or ideal. It often suggests illusions. We must cultivate hope and optimism, lest we fall into despair. Yet our dreams need to be based upon something realistically possible, or we might never accomplish anything. This is a theoretically perfect arrangement for Congress to find compromises between what is real and what is possible in order to sidestep the fiscal cliff.
Aries: You have more energy than you know how to burn! This is a good week for workouts. Good news or helpful information comes to you from one or more of the following sectors: publishing, education, places of worship, travel and the law. Travel is possible.
Taurus: This is not the best of weeks to embark on a new sexual encounter, or a new broker/financial manager relationship. Your judgment is cloudy in these areas. Those who look like new friends may become a source of disappointment. So be really cautious. There may be concerns about your partner’s resources.
Gemini: This week is all about communications of every sort. Even you will be talking, speaking, and writing way more than is normal. Some of your discussions will be intense, so be prepared. Read or at least scan all new information coming your way. A fresh piece of data might just be what you need to fill in the gaps.
Cancer: Your energy level is good. Positive outcomes related to your partner and/or children are reflecting well upon you. Almost anything you set out to accomplish is handled in unusually quick time. You have what it takes to be a warrior on behalf of yourself or others. People will listen to you.
Leo: A project begun in late October is just beginning to yield results. The outcome is probably not what you imagined, but give it time to grow on its own before you press it to become your original image. Sometimes creative work takes on its own purposes and changes shape before our eyes.
Virgo: Your focus shifts to matters of home, hearth, and family. Things of the past may float up in your mind for reflection. Think carefully about what is truly important to you now, at this time in your life. Don't allow old habits or rules from the past to make your decision for you. Obsessing is not good for your health.
Libra: Speak and act with conscious intention around children or with romantic partners. It is possible that communications could go awry. Don't allow a misperception to ruin a day. Discuss it immediately, if possible. You may encounter a short period of brain fuzz. Let it be and it will go by the end of the week.
Scorpio: You occasionally confuse what you think with who you are. There are those who will disagree with you this week. Just don't let it become a battle to the death. Remain aware that your identity is not at stake in this situation. Coworkers may be challenging. You are bigger than that. Rise above it.
Sagittarius: Mercury travels rapidly through your sign between Dec. 10 and the end of the year. During this period there likely will be greater emphasis on communications, errands, and other short distance travels. Your mind will be quick and your attitude persuasive. You are loaded with ideas, so remember not to monopolize conversations.
Capricorn: Take really good care of yourself throughout this week. You are moving toward a slump in your physical cycle that will reach bottom next week. Your responsibilities in managing groups may be getting the best of you. Make it a point to avoid a “life and death” attitude.
Aquarius: Things involving the Powers That Be continue to move forward on your behalf. Your social life is definitely on the upswing. This is a great week for a getaway. Do something novel, even if you don’t leave home. Your mind is open to whatever seems fresh and unique.
Pisces: It is possible you will feel a sense of fatigue this week. Maybe something has caused you to be disappointed with yourself. Don't take the blues seriously or worry about yourself. In a few days you will feel much better. It is a temporary mood swing. Get some extra rest. Stay in touch with good friends.
