Mighty Fine Solstice!

“Merry” goes with “Christmas,” “happy” goes with “New Year” and “good” goes with “night.” After extensive surveying, the astrological consensus decided that “mighty fine” is a near perfect match for “solstice.” And of course, by “extensive surveying” I mean I asked myself. And also a cat. So, let us be the first to wish you a mighty fine solstice!

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Even if you’re basically happy where you are, you still think about the benefits of a career change. What’s the harm in imagining? You’ll realize what you love about your current position and what could be better.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be keenly aware of how your attention is like a miracle growth spray. What you focus on will thrive and blossom, and what you ignore will shrivel up and eventually return to the earth.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll strive to create harmonious relationships, but if it doesn’t quite work out the way you want it to, don’t worry. When people are connected by feuding, they are still connected.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll love the fast-paced, engaging action of the day if you get right into the flow. However, if you stand back and watch, you may get intimidated. So don’t hesitate. Jump right in.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Are you antisocial? Or are you simply not as user-friendly as people want you to be? The truth is, you don’t want (SET ITAL) just anyone (END ITAL) for a friend, especially not the “user” type.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’re a hard one to read today, and some will get it wrong. Most misinterpretations will have to do with what the other person really wishes about you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can’t stand trying to converse with people who simply wait for their turn to talk. They miss the whole point of your communication, which is quite simply a pleasure for the worthy partner.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A bit of silliness is just what the cosmic doctor is ordering for you now. Humor and levity will not only be fun in the moment; they will seal someone’s love for you long-term.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your personal sense of timing clicks perfectly with your environment. It takes confidence to move quickly. For now, it’s better to do too much too soon than too little too late.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll pay close attention to your return on investment, especially on an energetic level. The thing that seems like it would be fun to accomplish may be more effort than it’s worth.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your cosmic gift of the day is objectivity, an essential and strongly beneficial quality for self-realization. So, if you really did live in a glass house, what would people see?

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Beware of people who can’t make the simplest of commitments, like deciding on a beverage or choosing a parking place. Surround yourself with people you can count on.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 21). It’s your year for emotional fitness, and positive new associations and habits will form in the months to come. You’ll change or hone your style in January. Friendship will open a professional door in February. March is your chance to get active in a new arena. June improves your domestic scene with a big change. Sagittarius and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 25, 49, 6 and 28.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You’ll be torn between wanting to be with others and wanting time to yourself. TAURUS: A strange twist of fate puts you in the path of love. GEMINI: Stop needing and wanting another person, and focus more on having a good time in the moment. CANCER: Encourage another person to take ownership of the scene you share together. LEO: What seems to be a strictly platonic relationship is, upon closer observation, charged with a deeper layer of exciting chemistry. VIRGO: You’ll have revealing conversations that feature your wicked wit. LIBRA: Letting the other person take the driver’s seat of a relationship will be fun for you. SCORPIO: You’ll make an effort to be around warm, enthusiastic people, and you could fall in love with someone’s killer smile. SAGITTARIUS: Catching up with an old friend will lead to new love or a renewal of love. CAPRICORN: Simple logistics like standing versus sitting will impact a relationship. AQUARIUS: Those who truly accept themselves won’t bother trying to impress you. PISCES: Passivity is a barrier between people. But you’re so welcoming that others feel inclined to interact with and around you, eroding the barrier and dwindling it down to nothing.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: The Capricorn sun and the Aries moon inspire a mutual attraction between these two signs. Capricorn is a powerful leader, and Aries, though headstrong, will follow the directives of a respected figure who knows the ropes. So if Capricorn comes up with a wonderful plan, Aries will climb aboard adding a zesty enthusiasm to the scene. Sunday will highlight tenderness and emotional nurturing.
