FOR RELEASE: SUNDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2011
The Aries moon is known for being a hothead, and the atmosphere already will be tinged with the possibility of temper tantrums when Mercury retrograde forms a tense angle to Mars to close the deal. Words will be exchanged. It'll be up to you to decide whether you or a witness will tell the story later.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There is something beautiful about every emotional state. The beauty comes when you channel your emotions in a way that helps to celebrate the human condition. It's OK to feel.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have your eye on your quality of life and will notice the impact your environment has on your overall well-being. You can't control the weather, but your sense of order and design will bring sunshine to any space.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Maybe you've never seen an actual ghost or shaken hands with your guardian angel. But you haven't completely discounted that they exist. And today you'll feel inexplicably touched by unseen help.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are things in your environment that you can't love and you can't leave — so your only sane choice is to find a fix. Once you dive in, the solution won't be as expensive or as complicated as you once thought it would be.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sometimes you feel you were put on the earth to serve others, and you don't mind that feeling. It's purposeful. On the other hand, you'll be missing out if you don't steal moments of simple peaceful enjoyment just for you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You might toy with the idea of losing your ambition or trading it in for a level of contentment that has always eluded you. You're not ready to give up the fight yet, but you're definitely coming to a different place.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You will receive a blessing of sorts. It won't be from a religious official, and it won't happen in a formal context. You will feel the energy of this blessing open something up in you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your greatest assets are immaterial. Realizing this helps you curb your appetite for gadgets and gear designed to help you present yourself and your work in the best light. What you lack in tools you make up for in talent.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When you love a process, the results of that process don't matter as much to you. Knowing this, you'll commit to a certain action without worrying about whether the action will bring you success in the end.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Uncertain of what to do about a certain issue in your own life, you'll focus on others for the day. Your capacity for happiness expands every time you give another person a reason to be happy.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will be increasingly open to new modes of communication and will be getting information from different people and places. You could even get a kind of message from an animal.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Not everything should be taken to the committee. A difficult decision becomes easy to make when you stop waiting for a consensus of opinion and just do what you think will work.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 4). You'll feel strongly that you are on a mission. In the new year, you'll be prolific, doing what you do best and doing it as often as any human possibly can. You'll position yourself as an expert in February. You'll seem to need less sleep in March, and you'll work late hours in order to achieve your desired result. Scorpio and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 2, 29, 10 and 25.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: The week begins under the feisty Aries moon, lending energy and vitality to our endeavors. Mercury retrograde eggs on the warrior planet for the early part of the week, promising that some people won't be able to keep from sharing their opinions, even the not so nice ones. This will cause conflict somewhere in the world, and your choice will have to do with how close you want to get to the fire. It's really up to you. There is something valuable to be learned whether you jump in and become part of the fight or decide to sit it out.
Uranus will return to direct motion on Friday. Uranus is known for rebellion, surprises and advances, and he has been holding back since July 9 when he began a retrograde cycle through Aries. Progress toward certain aims may have seemed painfully slow during this time of review. Many felt they were too involved with others to push ahead. The need for community trumped a desire to push forward independently. Now you don't have to be a lone wolf to advance your interests. In the months to come, everyone takes a step forward together toward advancing the mission of humankind.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Jay-Z is excited about becoming an involved father to his new baby daughter and even told GQ magazine he intends to change diapers. The Sagittarian rapper, producer, designer and author was born when the emotional moon, lucky Jupiter and surprising Uranus were all in the sign of harmony and relationships: Libra. These aspects bode well for creating a happy domestic life.
