Press the flesh, Taurus!
ARIES (March 21 to April 20): Mercury, the planet of communication, will be traveling with Venus, planet of love and art, across the powerful top of your chart. You should be doing work that you love and loving the work that you do. If you aren’t, then change your mindset and your career immediately. An Aquarius will act as your lucky charm.
TAURUS (April 21 to May 20): The emotional moon will be conjunct hard-working Saturn in your house of communication on Dec. 10. Come up with a mission statement for the month and for your life, dear Taurus. A Cancer can help you tweak the final copy.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21): This is an oppressive time of year for you, as several planets oppose you, dear girl. Try not to sweat the small stuff, but do allow yourself to sweat about love. Honestly, nothing is more important right now. Another Gemini wants to get inside your skin. Let her.
CANCER (June 22 to July 22): Mercury and Venus will transit your house of love during the days ahead, which means that you need to make every effort to align your head with your heart. One can’t dominate the other. An Aries will help you to find true balance and satisfaction.
LEO (July 23 to August 22): You don’t have to worry so much about what other people think, Leo. Are you being true to yourself right now? That’s really all that counts. A Scorpio has the ability to turn your life upside down. Is that what you want, or would you prefer to stand upright? Decide, and go on from there.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22): Jupiter in your sign brings you luck and abundance during this holiday month. As long as you are extra-giving and you nix any stingy thoughts or actions in the bud, all will be fine. A Sagittarius teaches you a great deal about true generosity.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22): Let go of your hatred toward a past love, Libra. As benevolent Jupiter transits your house of endings and new beginnings, you must let go in order to let someone new in. A Virgo is waiting at the altar for you. Get to the church (or wherever) on time!
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21): Your co-ruler Mars transits your creative sector and brings you a taste of the transcendence through art that is to come. Have some faith in your own abilities, Scorpio. A Libra sees how brilliant and magical you really are.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21): The Sun and Pluto are both transiting your sign and bringing you closer to finding yourself and coming into your own. Don’t resist change. Progress is already in motion. Go “with” a Taurus, not against her.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19): Jupiter in your house of travel is pushing you to take off for a grand, new place. Check airline prices – or at least gas up your car and toodle around a new part of town. New sights invigorate you. A Pisces stimulates your libido and your imagination.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18): Don’t worry about blowing your cover, Aquarius. This is the time to let everything hang out. The more you censor yourself, the less like yourself you will feel. A Capricorn helps you cross over to that final area of complete freedom.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20): Jupiter in your house of love is rooting for you, Pisces. You can get what you need from a Leo. You just need to give a little something, too. (No, something “else.”) Try to stretch and understand what others desire from you, not just what you enjoy giving to them.
