After a wild lunar eclipse on the 21st, the Sun has settled into traditional, family-oriented Capricorn. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas indeed. The Moon will be in playful, affectionate Leo on Christmas Eve, so let everyone open one present that night ... just to contain the excitement! Showy Leo brings out our theatrical sides, so gather the gang for caroling and other hokey-yet-hilarious fun.
Play the five-million-dollar game.
You suddenly have five million dollars in your bank account, perfect health, and perfect relationships. Feel the ease in your life. From that place of ease and fun, imagine the vacation you would take. Picture it, and feel the deep relaxation of your new life.
You’re back home from your vacation, and the universe tells you that you can only keep this abundant wealth if you use it to take your career to the next level and launch your true work — the work you came here to do. What would you do? *
’Tis the season for holiday proposals and engagements — and we’re looking forward to Lifetime’s upcoming two-day special (Dec 12 & 13) “Marry Me,” starring Lucy Liu (who shares our December 2 birthday!). In true Sagittarius style, Lucy’s character bites off more than she can chew by accepting not one but THREE marriage proposals. We should all have such problems, right?
Skip the dry 2011 resolutions, and think about what would really light you up. Think big! Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of abundance (kind of the solar system’s Santa Claus), so don’t limit your wishes and desires.
Just in time for us to craft some lofty 2011 goals, motivator Mars moves into Capricorn, the sign of long-term planning. Mars will be here until mid-January, pushing us to achieve. What big accomplishments would you like to nail down next year? Mars in Capricorn helps you clarify that list. Impatient Mars accelerates the action, and it can bring equal parts stress and excitement. Remember: Easy does it. Don't overload yourself with work during this cycle.
Fasten your seat belts — it’s gonna be a bumpy sleigh ride. Mercury takes a retrograde (backward) turn from Friday until the end of the year. Mercury rules communication, travel and technology. Typically, all of these things go a little wonky during Mercury retrograde cycles, which occur three or four times a year.
You’re all fired up to finish your holiday shopping, clean the house, bake snowflake-shaped cookies for the whole neighborhood, and basically make Santa’s workshop look like it’s filled with slackers. Not so fast, little elf. Yes, energizer Mars is in achievement-oriented Capricorn, turning you into Superwoman. However, master planner Mercury is retrograde (moving backward) in Capricorn, which means if you’re making a list, prepare to check it twice ... or more!
Christmas and New Year's Eve are fast approaching, and the planets are more active than a team of reindeer this holiday season. So we're here to help you have that gingerbread-trimmed celebration of your dreams ... even if it takes some extra planning. On the "eves" this year, the Moon will be in Fire signs, making people restless and excitable. Too much sitting around could stir tension, as boredom leads to bickering. One prevention? Get moving! Physical activity will release the pent-up energy (and burn off the heavy meals). Bowed heads and somber reflections? Forget it.
