FOR RELEASE: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 30, 2011
Poets and dreamers unite under the waxing moon in Pisces. Even those who do not usually identify with such titles may find themselves lost in a private vision, defining feelings in some new way or dancing to distant music that no one else seems to be able to hear. Life is likely to surprise us as we explore different realities.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll take the role of "guardian" quite seriously, and you'll start by guarding your own time and monitoring your own behavior. You realize that you can't change something if you can't account for it in the first place.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your environment will make a difference in how you feel. Place pictures of your supporters and those you admire where you'll see them often. The right images around you will help you to work hard and be successful.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Each person has their own unique emotional makeup, so feelings may be more or less mutual, but not exactly. You'll connect in a way that feels right to you, and so will the other person.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You know that you have the courage and the power to accomplish your goal. The question is: Do you have the stamina? Will you keep going even after it's not as fun, glamorous or new? Today you prove that you will.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll see the first signs that someone is attracted to you, and you'll enjoy the attention to the extent that it's appropriate for your life. You'll take everyone's feelings into account.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It will be easier for you to achieve at the level of your high standards when those around you, especially your nearest and dearest, have high standards, as well.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There will be many distractions, but ultimately, you control your focus. Be strong and centered on the mission. It's all that matters. Do what is necessary to finish what you set out to accomplish.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Think ahead as much as possible. It will save you energy. Having to react to things in the spur of the moment will be more stressful than knowing what you're going to do beforehand.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It's the perfect day to get away from the habits that usually serve you so well. Shaking things up reminds you of who you really are at the core.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Not only do you have the ability and desire to make something happen, but you have other intangible qualities that, when seen by the right people, will cause doors to fly open and opportunities to fly forth.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll rely on your own curious mix of charm and timing. You'll enter circles and interact for just the amount of time it takes to make a connection. Then you'll leave while the going is good.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You can change what's going on between people in your family just by choosing new reactions. Your loved ones will respond to you, especially when you are acting in unexpected ways.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 30). You'll be part of a winning group this year. January brings a run of good luck that seems almost too easy, but the truth is that you've been working your whole life for it. You'll embark on a mission in February. In March, celebrate your relationship with someone who shares your cherished values. Invest in June. Aquarius and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 44, 8, 32, 39 and 18.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Instead of waiting around to see who floats into your life, you go after the one you want. TAURUS: The right entertainment will set a tone for the perfect date night. GEMINI: Hopefully you feel like a prize, because many will try to win you over this weekend. CANCER: You'll dress to impress and turn a few heads for the effort. LEO: You'll have many relatable topics to discuss with your potential sweetheart. VIRGO: A strong energy radiates from you, so hopefully you're in touch with it and with the particular messages you're sending. LIBRA: You'll receive the smiling, open body language that tells you to approach. Seize the moment. SCORPIO: The little arguments may not seem to matter, but they do. Try to relate in a positive way. SAGITTARIUS: You'll take charge of your love life and shape the action the way you want it to go. CAPRICORN: Your family traditions will figure into the weekend events. AQUARIUS: The way you share downtime with a loved one will feel comfortable and safe. PISCES: You'll take on a challenge, perhaps for the sole reason that someone else told you not to.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Pisces and Capricorn provide each other with the perfect balance. Capricorn is often practical, traditional and goal-oriented, while Pisces likes to lead with intuition, creativity and empathy. When they get together, they rub off on each other. The blend of skills and approaches that happens will produce exciting results this weekend. Each sign will land in a better place for the influence of the other.
