Jesus was a Capricorn

I don’t know about the ate-organic-food and wore-no-shoes thing, but I do know Capricorns carry integrity and a sure-footed justice. When the Sun walks slowly into fair-handed Capricorn this evening at 9:35 p.m., it marks the Winter Solstice in the OK Coral. A turning point. The white hats start to outnumber the black hats.

Celebrate the return of light, Wednesday, December 21, 2011.

Aries (March 20-April 19)
It’s such a day for a sweet tooth! You may want chocolate chip pancakes with syrup and whipped cream--and that’s just breakfast. The Sun’s last day in fiery Sagittarius makes this a high octane day for you. Too much of everything seems just right. The Winter Solstice this evening will put your feet on the ground, but you’ll still be wanting something new and exciting. Ruts are out.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
If you aren’t on guard, you’re sweet tooth will clean out the pastry case at Starbucks with the rationalization that you’ll share at the office. Venus is in the mood for excess and she has no interest in the caloric value. In fact, indulgence is in and work is out. Can you take a mental health day? Restlessness and rebellion are stirring up excitement. Try something today that you’ve never done before.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Make hay while the Sun still shines in fiery Sagittarius (until 9:35 p.m.), and Venus fuels the flames. The goddess of love rebels against all limits today so excess abounds! Leave you charge cards home if you’re shopping--see if you still want it tomorrow. This evening’s Winter Solstice has an unexpected kick. Instead of settling down to hibernate, this Capricorn Sun is looking for new freedoms. There’s a rebel loose.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
This is not a business as usual kind of day. In fact, expect excitement and meet it half way by trying something new. You’re energized with a new self-confidence, and the courage to free yourself from a rut. Change your routine. Tonight is the Winter Solstice and the longest night gives way to the return of light. Let your true self shine.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
This morning is loaded with high energy but no discipline. It’s a combination Venus is very fond of, but it doesn’t make for a organized work day. Better take a walk by the beach and be inspired by the hang gliders--take flight in your very active mind. There’s a restlessness to the day which continues through the evening when the earthy Capricorn Sun arrives. The Winter Solstice shifts your gear to optimism.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Overdone and over the top are on your list for today unless you corral that Virgo sensibility. It’s going to feel like there’s money to burn, so careful at the Mall. You are loaded with confidence and courage today, especially if you need to stand up for yourself and say what you feel. Tonight’s Capricorn Sun will fuel your creativity and desire for something new as you celebrate the return of light.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
You’ll want to take the day off, because you feel too good to go to work. There’s excitement in the air and you’re up for something or someone new. Venus is going a bit overboard however, so that shiny overpriced bauble suddenly seems a reasonable buy! Your energy is very high with the Sun’s last day in your compatible fire sign, Sagittarius. Tonight’s Solstice brings down to earth sense and sensibility. You might even settle down for a long winter’s nap.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
That little brown bag is not enough of a disguise for all those jelly-filled donuts. A bit of overindulgence is on today’s menu so best to invite friends over to share. Restless and discontent is the mood for most of the day. Venus is looking for excitement, and when the Sun migrates into earthy Capricorn for this evenings Solstice, the need to try something new will still be there.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
This is the Sun’s last day in your sign, so celebrate. Venus is riding a proverbial Pink Cloud. Just keep in mind that nothing is too much for her when she’s in this mood, so watch your pocket book and your sweet tooth. There’s plenty of excitement ahead even with the earthy Capricorn Sun bringing in the Winter Solstice tonight. The longest night gives way to lighter times.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Expect the unexpected, even with the Sun moving into your sign this evening at 9:35. Your famous sure-footedness and common sense have an itch for something more exciting, new and different. You feel a strong need for freedom, and a restlessness will grow into irritation if you keep it bottled up. Celebrate the return of light that Capricorn always brings. The world needs your just, hard-working integrity.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Unless you have an unlimited budget, today is a bad day to shop. You’ll likely buy something just because it’s a pretty color or the buttons are beautiful--never mind it’s overpriced and you don’t need it! The goddess of love has put sparkles in your eyes this morning and you’re looking for some excitement. Take off early and meet some friends.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
Feelings are energized today with a sparkling desire for something new and exciting. Your confidence and courage are up. A strong urge to indulge yourself comes from Venus, and she’s not in the mood to even discuss it. Pink cloud optimism stays with you into the evening when the earthy Capricorn Sun marches in the Winter Solstice. Still, you won’t feel like hibernating just yet. A restless rebellion stirs you to do the unexpected.
