Although you’ll love turning heads, you might prefer to slip away from the crowds for some one-on-one time this NYE, especially if you’ve met a charming someone who has captivated your attention. Don’t forget to clue your friends into your whereabouts. You could get so caught up in the moment that you forget them altogether—and they wind up filing a missing-person report. Coupled Caps might eschew the party scene altogether and opt for an intimate night in, feeding each other champagne and strawberries and enjoying some spicy pillow talk.
But how close is too close? Mars will oppose the moon on Monday night, which could cause attractions to heat up a bit too quickly. Someone could irritate you by being overly possessive. (Help...air!) You may be prone to bouts of jealousy yourself, but get the facts before you react. Things may not be what they appear at first glance. Money could also become a tense topic, thanks to the moon versus Mars. Get on the same page about spending before dragging your entourage to that $100-per-head party or the club with the three-drink minimum.
One thing’s for certain: You’ll have a lot to say between December 31 and January 19. Communicator Mercury cruises through Capricorn for this three-week stint, making you a regular Chatty Cathy. Hang with the extroverts, but be careful not to monopolize the conversations. These are dialogues you’re engaging in, not The Capricorn Show.
That said, the stars sanction a bit of shameless self-promotion. If you have a project, idea, or offering to put out to the public, you can attract major attention over the next three weeks. But don’t go signing any paperwork just yet. Your whims could change with the wind while Mercury is in your sign. Dabble, explore, network and mingle, but don’t commit to anything long-term right now. A better option may come along; at the very least, give yourself a chance to taste the rainbow before you become an official member of anything.
You could give yourself a headache from overthinking, so quiet your “monkey mind” with sports and upbeat physical activities. Find some fresh powder to ski, sled or snowboard down; jump into the Crossfit or boot-camp-cardio class and you’ll be too pumped up on serotonin to worry ‘bout a thing.
That said, work WILL kick off at a clipped pace this week, and happily so. Energetic Mars and lucky Jupiter form a powerful trine, helping you make a splash in the professional world as 2013 begins. Get your ducks in a row and put systems in place, STAT. You might start with an office cleanup mission before you bury yourself under a mountain of work. Pursue job leads if you’re in the market for a change; or, create your own job description and see if you can’t convince your employer to give you a new title.
