WEEK OF DECEMBER 8 – 14
Aires – March 21 – April 20:
Take some time to think a response through before saying the first thing that comes to mind. It’s not easy to take the words back once they’re out there.
Taurus – April 21 – May 21:
Even though it can be difficult to cede control, sometimes you have to hand the reins over to someone else. You can still be involved from a distance.
Gemini – May 22 – June 21:
Sometimes it can be challenging to figure out what other people are thinking. Focus on yourself instead of trying to get into the heads of those around you.
Cancer – June 22 – July 22:
A focus on finances takes priority this week. Holiday spending may force you to reevaluate your budget. It could be time to scale back.
Leo – July 23 – Aug. 23:
Put all of your energy into one line of thought or project. This way you’re fully behind the idea. You’re a force to be reckoned with when you are motivated.
Virgo – Aug. 24 – Sept. 22:
Time is running out to get an important job done. This is not a week to procrastinate, but to bear down and finish your tasks. You’ll breathe easier afterward.
Libra – Sept. 23 – Oct. 23: Big changes are on the horizon. You may have wanted a certain outcome, but another arrived instead. It could take some time getting used to a new situation.
Scorpio – Oct. 24 – Nov. 22:
Sometimes you have to table the things you want to say in the interest of consensus. Focus your energy on positive things this week.
Sagittarius – Nov. 23 – Dec. 21:
Be patient with yourself this week, as you have many different balls in the air at once. Even the most organized person may stumble here or there.
Capricorn – Dec. 22 – Jan. 20:
You may need to delegate when demands at home start to feel a little overwhelming. Any free time you can muster will be put to good use.
Aquarius – Jan. 21 – Feb. 18:
Some situations are beyond your control. Fixating on the things you cannot change will not prove productive. Surround yourself with friends.
Pisces – Feb. 19 – March 20:
Enjoy the moments that you have with family members in the weeks to come. These are the most reliable people in your life.
