The cosmic Christmas gift is a solar eclipse and a new moon in Capricorn, the sign of kings and also of tradition. There's a wondrous solemnity to the day as many carry out the rituals that have been represented in various ways for generations and generations. "It's not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving." Mother Teresa
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The beautiful outcomes of the day are a direct result of the energy you bring to the task at hand — easy, relaxed and open-hearted. You wish life to show its sweetness, and it will.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your imagination keeps returning to a scenario, and for good reason. There's something here you must do! This may involve an attraction, and you'll likely find out that it's mutual. What you seek is seeking you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Moments of reflection add to the wonder of the day, as do the hopeful and courageous feelings that stir in you when you think about the future. As for the present, it's characterized by tenderness.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're feeling open and expressive. Sing out loud, talk to people you don't know, be a hero to those who need help and a defense for the defenseless. You'll be on both sides of boundless generosity.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are more interested in people than in things, and yet you appreciate the care taken in the exchange of gifts and the meaning behind what is opened, often something along the lines of: "I love you. I want you to be happy."
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Santa Claus visits people once a year, and there are people you see on just about that same schedule. This makes for conversations rich in news and perspective.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Never are the delusions of childhood so prevalently recalled as in the experience of Christmas. The variety of memories, beliefs and misconceptions will be a merriment to share.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's not all about the food, but the food does take starring role in the day, and will bring people together, spark conversations and contribute to a feeling of satisfied well-being. Enjoy and celebrate.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You pose challenges to yourself that make the day more interesting to you. You're gathering intel, collecting sweet moments and noticing things about your loved ones you wouldn't ordinarily see.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Just as a night of legend was made brilliant by a spectacular star, your time will be lit up by a dazzling culmination of elements including smiles, music and heartfelt rituals.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Children want the days leading up to Christmas to whiz by and Christmas day to last as long as possible. The trick to elasticizing the day is to pour into each moment the entirety of your senses and soul.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Whether you are spending time with people you don't usually get to see or spreading a little joy to people who need it most, the giving spirit overtakes, resonating with your highest self.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 25). Generosity drives you through the solar year. You seek to give something not only impactful but specific to the needs of others. You will dedicate your work to a person and this will give it greater focus and artistry. May puts big money in your pocket. You will be recognized in ways that are unexpectedly moving. Virgo and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 11, 4, 44 and 30.
A HOLIDAY WISH FROM HOLIDAY: Happy holidays and may they be illuminated by wishing stars. I wish ARIES to ask for more from love than you did last year. You're ready to connect on a different level. May TAURUS have great ease in contracts and luck with fortuitous deals that wouldn't have been possible only a few years ago. To GEMINI, my sincerest hope is for you to be lavished in just the brand of attention you most crave. I wish CANCER a profound sense of belonging that fortifies through the year. For LEO, I wish a blueprint for dreams and the crew that will help you build it. I wish VIRGO beauty that defies definition and category and moments of mind-blowing loveliness. May LIBRA have the extra sense that allows for quick choosing of a quality team to help you reach your goals. I wish SCORPIO grace and felicity in transition. I expect SAGITTARIUS to trade these pops of money that come from nowhere into wonder-filled experience involving plane tickets. For CAPRICORN, I wish merit awards and enthusiastic reception in elite groups. May AQUARIUS get speedy and abundant paybacks on investments of all kinds. For PISCES, I wish perpetual warmth and laughter of relationships in the peak of their delight.
