Lights, Camera, Leo Moon
The Leo moon is a playful diva, working out exactly what she has to do to steal the spotlight. Those who know that they are entertaining will find this to be a hospitable time to weave their magic, mesmerize a group and win audience approval. We all need a little fun in our lives, and right now we’re willing to pay dearly for it.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). When you get signs from the universe not to do something but you really want to do it anyway, try to find the bigger person inside you and heed the signs.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You need a way of organizing your time to get the most of these final days of the year. List-making will serve you well. Bonus: When you get it out of your head and onto the page, you’ll sleep better, too.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will see through the artificial aspects of the world. You’ll realize that you do have time to do what you really want to do if you change your expectations and another person’s, as well.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re in an innovative mood, drawn to what hasn’t been done before. Also, you see a real need for new solutions. If anyone can crack the code and uncover the mystery, you can.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Anyone can make the easy, feel-good choice. But is that really the best one? Right now the comfortable choice is being offered out of a desire to control others. You don’t want to be controlled. You’d rather do what’s hard.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll gather sacred knowledge under the guidance of elders. This probably won’t be a mystical process. Rather, it’s simply that experienced people tell you what to do, and you do it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Get organized in your own head. You’re after something that you can’t quite put your finger on. Does wanting more make you greedy or ungrateful? No, it makes you human.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There’s nothing magical about the way you’re going to create a certain outcome. You’re going to get in there and do the work. Figuratively speaking, the dirtier your hands get they more successful you’ll be.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll spend more time on things that really matter, fully aware of how those things often go masquerading as mundane happenings. An attractive someone points the way tonight.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You don’t want more to do, but it has become obvious that a dynamic will not change unless you do something. You’ll take responsibility for a situation and be empowered by the move.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may be worried about what’s going to slip through the cracks as you try to accomplish everything you want and need to do by the end of the year. Accept that you can’t do it all, and have a little fun.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People think it’s not easy to be relentlessly positive, but when you truly feel blessed, it’s not hard at all. Someone in your environment will be irresistibly attracted to your positivity.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 30). Maintain a positive self-concept. The care and treats you give yourself lead to good fortune. Stop comparing yourself to your peers. You’re truly in a league of your own and will prove that with this year’s unusual success story. You’ll come into money in February. Creativity and children will be a main feature. Leo and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 2, 11, 28 and 50.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Mercury moves into Capricorn on New Year’s Eve, making us increasingly aware of the power structures and relationships that must be navigated for maximum growth and enjoyment of the new year. Creating mutually beneficial relationships will be a No. 1 order of business. If parties are on your agenda, you’ll have a feeling about who would be good to know and why.
These are the last few weeks of Jupiter’s retrograde. There is much speculative work that will pay off later. It’s safe to go forward in full faith that the check really is in the mail, that people are good for their word, and that most prefer arrangements and exchanges in which everyone gets something that is personally valuable out of the deal.
The upcoming trine between Mars and Jupiter in intellectual air signs has a simple, clear-cut message: A little less emotion and a little more logic make exciting things possible. Anyone can win if they keep at it long enough. There is a simple formula for success. Nothing is doomed. Everything is possible if you’re willing to work at it. There is no failure, only giving up. If you really want something, don’t quit until you have it. Whatever isn’t bringing the desired result needs to stop. Then you evaluate and rework it. Repeat the process until you do get the desired result.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Former “Today” and “The View” co-host Meredith Vieira is reviving Bree Flanders, the role she originated on “General Hospital” 10 years ago. Vieira is classically Capricorn, with the amazing ability to balance an enormously successful and varied career with the responsibilities and joys of motherhood and marriage. Capricorns are hard workers and adept at prioritizing.
