It’s Action Tuesday, December 13, 2011.

Aries (March 20-April 19)
You rarely form a bad habit because you never stop long enough to get in a rut! This is such a great thing about Aries. No New Year’s resolutions necessary here, because if it needed changing you’ve already done it. Still, excitement is in the air and you would like something different. Look for an opportunity this evening to express how you really feel about an important issue. You may surprise yourself.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
It’s fortunate that since you are a creature of habit, your habits are usually Venus’ idea. She only tempts you to pleasurable things, or things of comfort, but she can definitely overdo it! Today’s energy will make it easy for you to change a personal habit. You could get some light shed on a childhood event that you’ve forgotten. It will allow you to open a door, and re-examine a long held belief that’s been holding you back.

Gemini (May 21-June 2
You will find it easier to break out of an old habit if you use today’s astrological wind to lift your wings. Change an attitude that negatively affects your ability to get out on the world’s stage--to write your story. Resolve to get rid of that old habit left over from childhood that restricts your voice being heard. Something from the past may come up today to point you in the right direction.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
Flattery will get you everywhere today. You feel a strong need to love and be loved. You understand the principal of giving what you want to get. The tempo picks up this evening when you want something new and exciting in your life. It helps propel you out of a rut and into some positive problem solving. Don’t get too attached to your plans today, they may suddenly change.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
It’s an exciting day for a Leo. There’s a faster tempo when the cosmic messenger shifts to forward gear. Post an innovative blog, or two. Close that deal that’s just been lagging behind. Your day gets really exciting in the afternoon when the Moon moves into Leo. You’re in touch with exactly how you feel, and you make an excellent listener. The air is electric as the cosmos throws you a surprise party.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
You’ve probably written a few books on how to break a bad habit. Your challenge is getting stuck in a mental rut with those two Virgo pitfalls--perfectionism and criticism. The energy coming your way today will show you something from your past that will help you see yourself in a different way. The tempo picks up this evening with some surprises.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
The morning may feel like you’re still in neutral gear, and you just can’t make things happen fast enough to suit you. Like watching the Jack ‘n the Box, who just won’t pop up. There’s intensity and impatience. The afternoon shifts the mood for you into exciting anticipation--you can feel a surprise just around the corner. You’re ready for something different, and it will find you.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
The morning is calm except for an overload from Venus. How can anyone have too much of such a good thing? Debatable, unless your bank account is low. Venus loves beautiful things and doesn’t know when to quit. The afternoon pace picks up with the Messenger planet turning direct and taking on an adventurous hitchhiker. Something new and exciting is in the air, and you get an opportunity to express yourself with some straight talk.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
You love being on new and fresh ground. That’s just what’s in store today. the communication glitches of the past three weeks can get straightened out now. If you’ve been wondering when that deal or that problem would get resolved, today could bring the solution. This evening is extraordinary. Changes are easy to make. Just do it.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
The Cancer Moon helps you feel calm, cool and collected--until sometime this afternoon. Then the excitable Leo Moon joins with the newly fast forwarded Messenger Mercury to bring a few surprises, and bump you out of a rut or two. There may be too much drama for your tastes, but you won’t be bored. If there’s a sudden opportunity to express your feelings, take it.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Most of your ruts, or habits that need breaking, are mental. Attitudes and belief systems that you’ve held for some time may need to be re-examined today. Somethings from the past may come up to bring this to your attention. You’ll eventually welcome it, because it keeps you fresh and mentally alert by opening up a restricting belief.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
The mood is soft and gentle this morning, with the Moon still in Cancer. But excitement is in the air, especially this afternoon. Look for a memory or a childhood reminder to bring your attention to a habit or attitude that you could break now--and free yourself from some restriction. You get the opportunity to see yourself in a different light. Call a friend who's a good listener.
