Jovial Jupiter is readying the reindeer

Magic and mystique of Santa Claus will be protected by the dark of the New Moon in Capricorn tomorrow night. Meanwhile, Joyful Jupiter, that big mythic god of generous giving, is filling the sleigh with joy. Overseeing the elves is Venus in Aquarius, the sign of brotherhood and peace. Together they are way over the top! Is it possible for this happy pair to give too much?
Wrap-it-up Friday, December 23, 2011

Aries (March 20-April 19)
Run, run, Rudolph. You may be chafing at the bit, eager to get going. Aries is always out front, so Rudolph must have been born in early Spring. He’s certainly got the Aries brightness and leadership! And, Rudolph’s eagerness is a sure sign he’s ruled by Mars (like you!). The world needs you to lead. And, anyone would surely say, “you Glow!”

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Jovial Jupiter in Taurus is reaching out to the fair-handed Capricorn Sun with blessings. Santa Claus (Jupiter) is in your sign this year, so his gifts are more likely to be comforting and beautiful--like you. Like a good Taurus he has probably been collecting valuables all year. This is a lucky time for you. “Jolly” is your watchword.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
If one of Santa’s reindeer is a Gemini, it would have to be Comet. Nobody streaks through the airwaves like you do, with your agile mind lighting up a thoughtful trail behind you. You may be getting prophetic, unusual insights right now. The favorable light from Serious Saturn can help you put practical form to your ideas.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
You are in a period of culmination as the Sun in Capricorn opposes your Cancer Sun. This happens approximately 6 months after your birthday. Projects you’ve been working on since then are coming to a climax. Your self-awareness is heightened, especially leading up to tomorrow’s New Moon. But it’s not a time to go it alone. Hitch your wagon to that ambitious Capricorn mountain goat, and let perseverance get you to the top.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Prancer has to be a Leo! Who else has that kind of self-confidence and regal strut? For all your power, you aren’t that keen on being at the head of the pack. All that effort and sweating is not for you. Plus, you like the body heat of being in the middle. With Moon and Messenger Mercury in a fire sign, you’d rather be in a position to gather information right now. Watch for the New Moon tomorrow to set the pace for 2012. Take notes.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Dancer must be Santa’s Virgo reindeer. Dancer, always in step with Prancer, speeds everyone on their way by keeping the whole bunch in rhythmic order! Doesn’t that sound like you? Because of the Pisces polarity with Virgo, your feet get a special focus. Moving them in service to the mind, to the musical rhythm you hear, makes for a great dancer. And a healthy outlet for you. Rushing around won’t do it, but dancing your way through the holiday to-do list will.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Harmony is in abundance with the goddess of love and the king of the sea thinking alike, and joining with your for a graceful good time. Cupid is your reindeer, named after Venus’ son, so look for those arrows flying at your heart. Fall in love for Christmas. Remember Cupid is quite mischievous, even careless. Practice discernment. The choice for a partner is yours.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Vixen just sounds like a foxy, sensuous Scorpio! You have a cunning trickster inside you who knows how to hunt for what you want. It’s a perfect time to enjoy belonging to your small family group--take a time out from the busy world at large. Pounce on some holiday goodies and bring them home to share. This is not the time to go it alone.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
The mythic Santa Claus is a tale of Generous Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius, who’s Thanksgiving cornucopia is now a traveling big bag of toys. You know so much about giving, if only you could get everyone to listen. You don’t believe in giving-to-get. You give so honestly, not caring about prettying the package to make it more appealing. Teach this.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Donner is a powerfully ambitious reindeer, named for thunder on the mountain. He must be a Capricorn. This year, like you, he’s loaded with enthusiastic good cheer and taking it out into the world. You have people’s attention. They’re listening for your next proclamation, knowing you’re in tune with Pluto’s transformational rumblings about the year ahead. Watch for prophetic dreams tonight.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Blitzen has the same lightening-quick mind that you do. He must be an Aquarius! If so, Blitzen is more in charge of Santa’s route than Rudolph is, because he’s got all of humanity in his sites. Mark your 2012 calendar for January 13th. You are going to experience, and hopefully teach us all, the meaning of unconditional love. You just keep dreaming. The Force will stir in the happiness.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
Everyone knows the elves (Santa’s and otherwise) are compassionate, kind Pisces! Who else has such sensitive skill with tiny toy parts? You’re the one who can enjoy the precise craftsmanship of putting a ship in a bottle. Time to turn that precision toward yourself. Your buddy, Capricorn, is offering a helping hand to remodel your life for 2012. Just offering, not pushing, so you must reach out and take it. Put your sympathetic elfin self to work on your own needs.
