Your Weekly Horoscopes Are Here: December 14 – December 21

See what the stars have in store

If you celebrate your birthday this week:

Your Year Ahead
 
What a strange turn of events.  Just a few short months ago, you were in an anxious, restless mood, and now – you’re ready to put most problems aside.  To add to the pleasure, the cosmos conjures up special love – and it’s not all of the romantic variety.  Overall, you should notice more compassion coming from within – and as you become more open, so will others.  What’s more, your social life looks nothing short of sensational. Family matters rule in December; and right through to January, although life could hardly be called quiet.  Seems Sagittarius, sometimes – you can have it all.  
 
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Best Day:   Sunday 16th
 
Over time, you’ve learned that tolerance works well for you.  But there are some situations that can still test your patience.  What you should look out for this month are conflicts of ego.  Clever Scorpios will recognise there are no real winners in warfare.  If new love’s on your mind, you should find the latter part of the week more amenable.
 
Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
Best Day:  Monday 17th
 
The cosmos gives Taureans a head start this week by stirring ambition.  Only the heavens know where all your extra energy will come from, but why question a good thing?  Just get on with the business of being a marvel, and busy yourself with what motivates you.  Your career possibilities expand, as does your financial outlook.
 
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
Best Day:  Thursday 20th
 
There’s a sensual feeling to this week that makes love an easy affair.  Whether it’s your relaxed attitude, or your popularity that betters your mood – it doesn’t matter.  In the end, each of these qualities will enhance the other.  This is a cycle you certainly won’t want to break.   There’s a chance of finding a karmically linked soul.
 
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Best Day:  Friday 14th
 
As much as you’d like to retain stability, this week the cosmos seems determined to cause unpredictability.  This is your week to discover that change can bring blessings.  If offered an opportunity, don’t hesitate – this chance won’t come again for some time.  You’re also better equipped to deal with financial issues – so sort out money problems now.
 
Leo (July 23 – August 23)
Best Day:  Wednesday 19th
 
This week long-term plans attract interest.  The cosmos offers financial opportunities, but asks for patience. Delayed gratification isn’t usually your style but persistence will pay high dividends.  In matters of the heart, singles attract someone special.  For couples, there could pressure to fall in line with a partner.  If so, maintain independence and equality.
Virgo (August 24 – September 22)
Best Day:  Saturday 15th
 
Aquarians are famous for their fiercely stubborn streak.  And as compromise doesn’t seem your top priority at the moment, expect some heated discussions.  You’ve had a taste of freedom and want more.  Though the planets counsel a degree of care, you want to throw caution to the wind.  Just as well your cash supply looks plentiful – even if it is borrowed.
 
Libra (September 23 – October 23)
Best Day:  Tuesday 18th
 
There’s little point adopting a fixed attitude at a time when adaptability could become your best friend.  Loosen up a little, Libra.  Fortunately, the planets make it easier for you by encouraging a change of direction.  There are bound to be moments of trepidation, but this week’s focus is on pushing past known limits.  You’ve been stuck in a rut for too long.
 
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Best Day:  Sunday 16th
 
There’s much to be said about expediency, even if it puts the odd nose out of joint.  This week, you tire of the endless debates, investigations and exploring of options.  There comes a time when the course must be struck, and for you that’s now.  Everyone else will just have to fall in line with your thoughts and actions.
 
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Best Day: Friday 14th
 
You can expect too much from relationships, and when your idealistic requirements are short-changed, disappointment may follow.  Ask yourself: have I been too demanding, or withdrawn?  Sometimes, we erect walls to protect ourselves, but in the process – shut others out.  This is the week to demolish some of those not-so-necessary barriers.
 
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) 
Best Day:  Thursday 20th
 
Routine becomes a way of life for many.   If life has become too predictable – this week, try something new.  Start, perhaps, by making one small change every day.  Initially, the choice may not feel comfortable, but it’s important to realise how long old patterns have been stuck in place.  Be bold, Capricorn.  The gain?  Delightful surprises.  
 
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Best Day:  Tuesday 18th
 
Many Aquarians can expect a little extra cash and more variety in their lives.  Changes at home keep you on your toes.  Though you’re usually a workaholic, this week could find you ducking out of the escape hatch early for the upcoming festivities.   You’re in the mood to shop and perhaps, redecorate.  There’s nothing like an expensive distraction.  
 
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Best Day:  Saturday 15th
 
You’re on your moral high horse in a week when standing up for your principles could mean a solitary ride into the sunset.  You can’t always expect others to please you.  Equal opportunity means just that. If tripped up by the past, or a troublesome friend – look to compromise as a solution.  A little bit of give and take can work wonders.
