Charm and dazzle, Sagittarius!

Mercury and Venus are dancing together through Sagittarius, promoting more than holiday vivacity. Sextile to Neptune they offer whimsy and magic. The general effect can get excessive, but that’s not necessarily a problem!
ARIES (March 20 – April 19): Take advantage of any opportunity to practice a foreign language, especially if it involves religious or philosophical terms. Anything from “alhamdulillah” to “zeitgeist” will open up new social opportunities. “Capisce”?
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): Your seductive powers are now at their height. So is your susceptibility. If you don’t take the bull by the horns, in a manner of speaking, you will be the bull so taken! Guard your public reputation, but don’t deprive yourself of private pleasures.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Your natural charm is working overtime, though it seems that others are doing the charming. Your best opportunities to find new love, or to reinvigorate an old one, lie in the foreign and philosophical. “Kama Sutra,” anyone?
CANCER (June 21 – July 22): Office romance is generally a bad idea, but now it might work. The workplace is being especially friendly and supportive now, and some of that may be more (or less!) than professional. At least enjoy the friendly, supportive vibes.
LEO (July 23 – August 22): The single lion may discover that a creative fantasy is the best way to find new love. The coupled cat better be clear about who’s the co-star in these playful scenes! Everyone is more flirtatious lately, and your partner may wonder about your intentions.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22): Charitable service is a seasonal tradition that you’re a natural for. Getting a bit more involved in community affairs now brings out a special sparkle, helping you to blend grace and efficiency. Show those elves how it’s done!
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22): Whoever said Libras are always tasteful didn’t foresee Neptune in your fifth house – for 14 years! That can be lots of fun, but a bit outre. You could go as a leather Santa offering season’s beatings, but your imagination is up for something more original.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21): Home decoration easily gets too expensive. You’re clever enough to pull out a few traditional or sentimental knickknacks and arrange them to convey the spirit you wish. Also, it’s a good time to resolve family finances or family squabbles.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 20): Your fabulosity now seems endless, although some people may prefer the adjective “interminable.” Pay attention to others’ limits, even if you have none. Stick to charm and dazzle. For now, logic is not your strong suit.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 19): Sensible though you are, some last-minute holiday shopping is inevitable. Your instincts there are now razor-sharp, if you take a little time out to meditate and prepare. Make your list, check it twice, and shop with fearless confidence.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18): You’re dazzling in the social swirl “du saison,” but you may be stretching yourself a bit thin. Extra eggnog may seem to help, but will leave you a broken shell. Plan, prioritize, and choose your parties carefully. Charitable events will serve you as well as they do their beneficiaries.
PISCES (February 19 – March 19): Charm and wit will get you far ahead right now! Your biggest challenge is to have faith in yourself. Meditation is good, but giving of your time and resources to charity is better for polishing both charm and confidence.
