One can only hope that after such a claim, he then paused to knock on wood. Why tempt the capricious fates so? <span class="column--highlighted-text">Indeed, it is not possible to prepare for everything, and the positions of Venus and Saturn suggest we stay flexible, watching for the wild card of destiny.</span></p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Some part of you thinks it's OK for you not to do the things you tell yourself to do. Why? Root out the rebel and ask. Perhaps it's because your demands are unrealistic or misaligned with your routine. Investigate. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Tasks done by rote are easily accomplished this way. But once you start thinking about them or trying to explain them to someone, they become difficult. Motion will go beyond reason. Get your head out of the deal.<p>Updated: Thu Dec 12, 2019</p> ff1bec8f4d3a56c24b80a52c3845d8dc Double Up on Full Moon Fun for 12/11/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/12/19/double-up-on-full-moon-fun Wed, 11 Dec 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>When you experience something that delights you to the core, you're driven to share it. But not everyone you're close to likes the same things as you. There's big, double-sized fun on tap under the full Gemini moon, especially for those who make the effort to be with special ones who can join you in the celebration of what you love.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Though it feels like you shouldn't or can't move from a situation, you're not actually stuck. What holds you here is imaginary, but it may still be a very good reason. Examine your options. Ask for insight from others. <p>Updated: Wed Dec 11, 2019</p> 5fc92621277721ddbc0e1246d39d041d Venus and Saturn Favor Assessment for 12/10/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/12/19/venus-and-saturn-favor-assessment Tue, 10 Dec 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>There's a profound difference between assessment and judgment. Assessment comes with a set of feelings like curiosity, honesty, reflection and productivity. Judgment comes with a harshness and the extremes of award or punishment. <span class="column--highlighted-text">Venus and Saturn move together to root for you to be kinder wherever possible.</span> Stick to assessment. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). People who love what they have are unlikely to take risks. It's why marketers push on "pain points" to sell their solutions. The restless and dissatisfied need you. Find them, and solve their problem. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You would feel silly telling yourself how great you are. Self-esteem is a state of being, not a collection of phrases. It grows out of healthy living, routines that support you and an overall plan that fits you well. <p>Updated: Tue Dec 10, 2019</p> 2c08877af1dfe43fab74479e899bae01 Mercury Speaks a New Language for 12/09/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/12/19/mercury-speaks-a-new-language Mon, 09 Dec 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Mercury in Scorpio was a time to respect privacy, follow decorum, be discreet and keep secrets out of loyalty. In the weeks to come, such things will no longer be the focus. Mercury enters Sagittarius, bringing about a new wave of communication and a freer feeling around meeting and mingling. It's also the perfect time to learn a new language. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). The great poet E.E. Cummings once said, "I'm living so far beyond my income that we may almost be said to be living apart." You'll sort out a money issue and bring it back under the same roof. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Work is sometimes more satisfying to you than anything an inner circle can provide. This is nothing to regret. Sometimes what you were meant to do happens outside the realm of personal relationships.<p>Updated: Mon Dec 09, 2019</p> f3aefa2b694f56d92c21ef5ffb745ff4 How to Offset a Solar Square for 12/08/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/12/19/how-to-offset-a-solar-square Sun, 08 Dec 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>It's important to have someone with whom you share an unquestionably good rapport. A fun banter, the bandying of ideas, even an argument is evidence of same-level thinking and thereby being less alone in your head. If you have it, revel in it. If you don't, find it. <span class="column--highlighted-text">Offset the gloom of this sun and Neptune square with a quality interaction.</span></p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Achievement is based in a realistic plan. If the plan is wishful and includes an element of luck for it to work, then it's not realistic. Start where you are and change one small thing. <p>Updated: Sun Dec 08, 2019</p> e9e297e56a07be652e3893402dca7cbf Warrior Moon Wisdom for 12/07/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/12/19/warrior-moon-wisdom Sat, 07 Dec 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>Under this warrior moon, the rules of battle are relevant, and not to be confused with the rules of war. The one who wins the battle isn't always the one who wins the war. And the hero isn't always the person who won the fight. Victory is irrelevant in the hero's story arc because heroes aren't made by outcomes; they are made by heroic actions.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). While you're busy spurring yourself on to great achievements, don't forget to check your current resources. What does your emotional and spiritual fuel gauge say? Is it time to plug in or gas up?<p>Updated: Sat Dec 07, 2019</p> bc154427f8f5296365afec433c1d92a7 Jupiter Cycle Check-In for 12/06/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/12/19/jupiter-cycle-check-in Fri, 06 Dec 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>As a society, we believe in many imagined realities that are just as idea-based as mermaids and unicorns, collectively agreeing not to question such things as the value of money or the creed of a country. For these things to keep being real, we have to uphold a faith in them, which we do wholeheartedly in these early stages of the Jupiter cycle. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Many leaders consider an effective message to be one that drives people to a desired behavior. If the message also happens to be true, that's more of a bonus than a prerequisite. If you want the truth, you'll have to dig for it.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You expect to have an influence over others when you're their boss or parent, but you probably don't realize that you influence your peers, too, and a lot more than you think. <p>Updated: Fri Dec 06, 2019</p> 2cca8b3891cb2feb70729caa8887886a Lunar Assertions and Free Speech for 12/05/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/12/19/lunar-assertions-and-free-speech Thu, 05 Dec 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>As the assertive Aries moon comes up against Jupiter, tolerate opinions different from yours. Listen to them even. Free speech is essential to the evolution of a society &#8212; a freedom that is of no use if unexercised. Those who only say the accepted thing don't move the needle toward truth. For ideas to be put to the test, they must be heard. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). We need each other. We show it in different ways &#8212; kind statements, tearful interactions, public acknowledgments &#8212; all serving to bolster connectedness and communicate the strength and nature of a relationship. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). While a thing certainly seems acceptable when more people are doing it, this in and of itself shouldn't factor into a moral- or value-driven decision. The question that really matters: Is it right?<p>Updated: Thu Dec 05, 2019</p> 5743ef14c3888df957e0558919094014 Spirit Moon for 12/04/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/12/19/spirit-moon-a2ad9 Wed, 04 Dec 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>A thing can be hard, dense, weighty and solid and still snap or shatter when hit with the right sort of force. Durability is flexible. <span class="column--highlighted-text">With strength and the ability to quickly adjust to environmental factors come balance and then grace and then dancing.</span> You can effectively apply the metaphor to any plane under the Pisces moon, especially spiritual. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Minimalism is a concept that can be taken to any area of your life. Today it could be very effectively applied to communication. Say little, and listen with a filter that tunes out the noise to hear the message.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Though the work that must be done is less than exciting, you'll find the inspiration to strongly motivate you. It will be given to you, dropped into your path or shown right outside your window.<p>Updated: Wed Dec 04, 2019</p> f6f448b4d0e51b1c7b970d40e331b370 Impressionable Moon for 12/03/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/12/19/impressionable-moon Tue, 03 Dec 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>The Pisces moon highlights the highly impressionable nature of humans. <span class="column--highlighted-text">Do not doubt for a second that you have influence. </span>It feels substantial in some circles and inconsequential in others, but don't let matters of scale discourage you. You are a neuron firing in the group mind of the world, which will not think the same without you.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Changing just one thing in a space changes the energy there. You'll use this to your advantage and affect the environment in interesting ways as you try and change the pattern there. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). They don't always feel the zing of your wit or laugh in the right places, because you're a step ahead. Don't worry; they'll catch up. In the meantime, keep setting the pace and tone like it's your job. It sort of is. <p>Updated: Tue Dec 03, 2019</p> a03dd85246863efda04abcc35dd3af37 Jupiter Changes Suit for 12/02/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/12/19/jupiter-changes-suit Mon, 02 Dec 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>It has been suggested that the only people who can live happily ever after are people who only have three minutes to live. This statement isn't so much one of cynicism, but a comment on how effectively the mind of a human adapts to a new state and soon after grows bored of it. We need change and challenge, which Jupiter gives to us today. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your days are always evolving to reflect your values and concerns and vice versa. Take a mindful moment to consider how well your current situation is working to both satisfy and challenge you. <p>Updated: Mon Dec 02, 2019</p> 1d76ee803e174670691b697ed7efbbbf Community Moon for 12/01/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/19/community-moon Sun, 01 Dec 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>All language must be built. This is the case even when two people technically speak the same native tongue; there are always subtleties and meanings inside of meanings to hash out before fluid communication can take place. This communal Aquarius moon favors all efforts to find commonality or to create it, as the case may be. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). While you can't exactly bottle up the hilarity of a fit of laughter to savor during some future rainy day when you could use a joyful memory, you can do something pretty close to that with today's fun.<p>Updated: Sun Dec 01, 2019</p> 0681cc61f9d11953f16883ebd612631e Neptunian Harmonies Sound for 11/30/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/19/neptunian-harmonies-sound Sat, 30 Nov 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>Neptune, planet of dreams and days into its new path, is comfortable and offers a generous scoop of hope to the whole picture. Families have assembled, commerce has commenced, and there's an audibly harmonious hum of humanity to be heard as the moon shifts from Capricorn to Aquarius. Step out and hum along.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). <span class="column--highlighted-text">There are times to ask for directions, and this is not one of them. Be resolute. </span>The execution of your plan depends on an attitude of certainty. Double down on the route you're already taking.<p>Updated: Sat Nov 30, 2019</p> eb83b6bebcbf40fa6243219b72a31206 Lunar Power Trip for 11/29/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/19/lunar-power-trip Fri, 29 Nov 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Capricorn is the station that represents power, its structures and rules, its benefits and perils. Where groups assemble, a hierarchy must be sorted. Otherwise nothing gets done. <span class="column--highlighted-text">Sometimes the power is passed along, with individuals taking turns, but it always exists, and everyone knows who is holding it</span>, especially under the Capricorn moon. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Take your time. Figure things out. Do you know the unspoken rules? It will not be a good idea to accept what's being offered unless you completely understand the terms of the transaction. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Desire and good judgment will pull in opposite directions. Instead of sticking around for the tug of war, go where things in the environment will be less polarized and it will be easy to do the right thing.<p>Updated: Fri Nov 29, 2019</p> 576cc00ea5a6053b0a39b73d38c9841c Thankful Trine of Mercury and Neptune for 11/28/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/19/thankful-trine-of-mercury-and-neptune Thu, 28 Nov 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>Nothing feeds the soul like gratitude. <span class="column--highlighted-text">And yet, modern emphasis on the concept has taken it to a cliched place.</span> In some realms, gratitude seems more like a chore than a wonder, more like an obligation than an actuality. Gratitude that isn't felt on a sensory level doesn't count. It is more closely aligned to enjoyment and pleasure than it is to duty. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). What people will remember about this day is how you made them feel. Whatever efforts you give toward serving needs will be effective in so far as they are delivered with warmth. <p>Updated: Thu Nov 28, 2019</p> d2d75fca84453a86cb2447d344c892fc Neptune Urges Us Awkwardly Forward for 11/27/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/19/neptune-urges-us-awkwardly-forward Wed, 27 Nov 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>Schools of fish swim as one. Birds flock in formation. Humans are, terribly awkward comparatively, constantly running into one another. We have to be trained to march or dance synchronistically. Don't give up. The discourse may be imperfect, but this Neptune change suggests it's better to have a messy interaction than none at all. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have to be pretty secure to let your curiosity lead you out of the known world. Either that, or you have to be bored enough that you feel you don't have anything to lose. <p>Updated: Wed Nov 27, 2019</p> 597c935a04b898ed119287a036d69ae2 Sophistication Moon for 11/26/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/19/sophistication-moon Tue, 26 Nov 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>The Sagittarius new moon speaks to worldly sophistication. While reading books grows the mind, ultimately, brainpower is proven not in the mind but in the world. <span class="column--highlighted-text">The highest intelligence is action. It takes sharpness to offer up what is most needed in the moment.</span> Without the thing that makes a moment work, what comes after is likely to fail. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's important to know the difference between a gift given and a deal brokered. The only kind of gift that is not a deal is one without strings or any expectation of being repaid. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Maybe manipulation is, at its core, dishonest. Even so, it's a part of the advanced human operating system. At least your aim is true &#8212; to help people do what's good for them. <p>Updated: Tue Nov 26, 2019</p> 1fdcf460bce5c21fbc1944dd1e426912 Venus Grows Horns for 11/25/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/19/venus-grows-horns Mon, 25 Nov 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>The better the result is that you have created, the more dazzling the effect, and the less inclined people will be to notice what it took to produce such a wonderful end. If you want accolades, you'll have to hint, prompt and basically educate people to give them. This will get easier as Venus transits deeper into Capricorn, the realm of the goat. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Having things just the way you want them is a luxury that is quite affordable today. All you have to do is discern between the finer details and then employ your famous charm as you make the request. <p>Updated: Mon Nov 25, 2019</p> 7e1ce502589a646bdd36ec069a109172 Mars and Uranus Polarize for 11/24/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/19/mars-and-uranus-polarize Sun, 24 Nov 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>Mars and Uranus mix it up today with their only opposition of the year. It's a jolt to the routine for some and a complete overhaul for others. "Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like." &#8212; Laotzu</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). What are the others overlooking? You get three times more creative just by asking yourself the question, and you feel five times more alive when you figure out the answer and then tend to it. <p>Updated: Sun Nov 24, 2019</p> 108aad89ca7f0b37def93da42fe8e2d9 Solar Hostess for 11/23/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/19/solar-hostess Sat, 23 Nov 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>Lady luck is an inconsistent hostess. She may greet her guests warmly and cozy up to serve them, but if they stay too late at the party, she retreats to her room, leaving them to see their own way out. On this first full day of the Sagittarian sun, ingratiate yourself to lady luck by realizing her limits and appreciating the brevity of her attention.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). When humans lived as tribes in caves, if you were the center of attention, then there was a strong chance you were under attack. Public presenting is a primal fear. You'll bravely do it anyway.<p>Updated: Sat Nov 23, 2019</p>
