January 21 - February 19
Today's Horoscope for Monday December 16th
You'll expect everyone to dance to your tune. Your straightforward approach will cut through nonsense and get to the point of situations fast. Try not to be jealous or possessive or get unsettled if things are not going precisely as you want. You will tend to react over-quickly to minor setbacks and hear slights where none exist. Balance is what you are aiming for, though you may be swinging to extremes in the effort to find it. Having a close partner is vital to your confidence now.
The Weekly Outlook from 16th December
You'll be attracted to new ideas and want to be travelling in a hurry. There may be presents or small windfalls or bonuses coming your way. Or new doors will open and you'll be offered an opportunity to walk down a new and more exciting path. Luck comes first and then the hard grind to turn it into long lasting results. After mid week if you can make your goals modest then you'll probably get everything done well. But if you aim too high, get carried away on your enthusiasm then you could come unstuck.
Your Monthly Horoscope for December
In a friendly, forward-looking three weeks you won't be short of company or advice. You may not be socialising or enjoying romance as much as usual, but you won't be left alone. At times your mischievous spirit will want out to play so you'll speak or act in a provocative way just to make an impact and entertain others. You'll also be laying down the law and sounding bossy at times. Pushing dynamically towards your goals you'll expect everyone around to be as motivated as you and to toe your line. This may not always go down well so try enthusiastic persuasion first before getting too forceful. But you will also become gradually aware in the background of a growing inner contentment and the capacity to be happy in your own company. This comes from Jupiter moving into the sign before yours on the 2nd to stay for a year. It'll help you get perspective on the past and to come to terms with many personal dilemmas. A quieter, reassuring final few days will also have chances to flirt and have fun.
and Next Month's Horoscope for January
High energy friends may be pushy or argumentative at times but they won't let you sit idle. They'll be determined that you should keep planning ahead and not allow past regrets to hold you back. But for all that you will have moments of introspection where you want to shut yourself away and ponder on highly personal and secret matters. Just don't get too inward-looking or isolated since it won't help. There will be helpful advice coming your way from an unexpected source and your own intuition will guide you if you can listen to it in quiet moments. Spending money will be a fun distraction and you'll be tempted by all manner of irresistible treats and indulgences. This is never your best month of the year and you will be sorting out work and practical matters as well as giving yourself quality time for yourself. Sorting out how much energy and attention you want to give to others and how much to yourself will be a question for months to come. Your birthday Sun after the 20th will bounce up your enthusiasm and exuberance. And even a sudden change at home won't be enough to dent your good humour.
Year Ahead 2019
Looking ahead you'll see rosy glows on the far horizon with great possibilities in the future. A wide circle of enthusiastic friends will be boosting your self-esteem and handing out helpful advice, which may veer to the over-confident at times, so be sure to double check. But for all that you'll be more inward looking, asking yourself in the quiet moment probing questions about what you really want to be doing with your life. Certain old ambitions have lost their fire and you know you need to let them go and find better for the future. You'll also be clearing out old baggage, whether emotional or old attitudes of mind that have passed their sell-by date. The Solar Eclipses early and late will prompt you to dig deeper for answers. House moves are a possibility or renovations and changes in your domestic setup, as you're drawn to a more modern feel for your intimate surroundings. You'll be restless as well emotionally with changes ongoing within the family. At times you may feel insecure as old certainties seem to disappear. But in future you will reconnect where it really matters in a different way. Your finances will be rebalancing from early on as you decide that sharing and caring and co-operating is more sensible than going it alone. Revising your fitness and health routines and regimes will be on your mind from July onwards for several months. Not over-committing yourself and draining your energy unnecessarily will be one tip. Remembering to stay positive another, since your state of mind will affect your body. If you feel discouraged then your physical fitness will sag. As you near the year's end you'll find that you become more contented in your own protective niche and with yourself. Your hunches will prove spot on about how you can give yourself a more fulfilling time ahead.
