Your Weekly Horoscopes Are Here: December 8 – 15

See what the stars have in store

If you celebrate your birthday this week:

Your Year Ahead

If granted extra authority this year, use it wisely.  With career or family issues, patience helps you keep a balanced viewpoint, and it might also pay to keep an eye on finances.  It’s not that loved ones can’t be trusted – just know what they’re are spending.  In matters of the heart, carnal cravings need to be satisfied.  Long-distance love could also turn out easier than imagined.  Be prepared for impulsive visits or travel. 


Aries (March 21 – April 20)

Best Day: Monday 11th

This week brings your talents to good use.   Perhaps you’ve been looking for a job or thinking of a career change.  Think ambitiously, but also stay grounded enough to know that before greatness comes preparation and hard work.  Make plans that can be set into motion in January.  


Taurus (April 21 – May 20)

Best Day: Wednesday 13th

Romance draws closer. Festive events, seminars, outings – these are your best hunting grounds. For those already happily coupled, love promises mutual appreciation and a closer bond.  But whether solo or settled, you’re encouraged to set aside shyness and be open to love.


Gemini (May 21 to June 21)

Best Day:  Friday 8th

You’re tired, Gemini – and ready to call time-out.  Despite exhaustion, stay focused for just a few more days.  With all the festive madness currently surrounding everyone, someone has to stay in control.  Like it or not, for now you’re cast in the role of cosmic custodian.


Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Best Day: Monday 11th

The planets are being deliberately provocative, so don’t rush to hasty conclusions.  Your mind is racing and you’re not at your patient best.  Don’t insist that you’re right, and don’t rely on guesswork.  Even if some of your ideas turn out to be workable, that doesn’t mean they all are.  


Leo (July 23 – August 23)

Best Day: Sunday 10th

Many Leos are battle-weary.  Perhaps there’s some great conspiracy against you?  Or maybe you’re just dealing with a system so inept that it collapses under its own weight –  taking innocent victims like you with it.  Will you surrender?  Not likely.  Besides, there are the festivities to enjoy.  


Virgo (August 24 – September 22)

Best Day:  Tuesday 12th

If trouble flares, act with diplomacy.  The trick lies in distancing yourself from this week’s emotional inferno, rather than getting caught up in it.  As soon as Virgos buy into any over-hyped sensationalism, you lose your earthy pragmatism. Without it, you could make some ill-considered decisions.  


Libra (September 23 – October 23)

Best Day:  Sunday 10th

Escalating pressures are bound to intrude on your free time early in the week, but it’s essential to honour your commitments and attend to any unfinished business – only then can you fully relax into the seasonal festivities.  Love looks exquisite as the year draws to a close.


Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)

Best Day: Saturday 9th

Change is coming – so sharpen your intellect, and prepare.  By week’s end your ability to think differently allows you to develop brilliant new concepts. More to the point, you’re no longer prepared to be taken for granted and won’t hesitate in letting others know this.


Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Best Day: Friday 8th

You’re looking positively reckless. Maybe your birthday season allows you to shed a few layers of responsibility – who’s to say?  Whatever the reason, this is shaping up to be a fun week, and by the looks you won’t be alone. You could however, be keeping expensive company. 


Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Best Day: Thursday 14th

Few things escape your astute Capricorn mind this week – whether you’re networking, buying bargains or uncovering new sources of information. Maybe you’ve no immediate use for current finds, but it’s a fair bet you’ll have a role for them early in the new year.


Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Best Day:  Wednesday 13th

With so much surrounding turbulence, finding your equilibrium hasn’t been easy. Home and work vie for your attention, putting you under too much pressure.  Dig around for the truth if you’re suspicious of another’s motives.  Need a day off, or away from the office?  Make those festive holiday plans now.  


Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Best Day: Saturday 9th

Now, here’s a better week – one when others seem prepared to grant your requests.  By now you’ve probably accumulated a wish list as long as your arm,  so gently start hinting at what you want. They say that there’s a time and a place for everything. For you, it’s this first week of the festive season.
