Venus is in charge, so happiness is in

Our Capricorn Venus is in a warm, friendly mood since she’s been hanging out with the Virgo Moon. They’re lazily planning a party, but don’t want to hear the complaints from the wet-blanket neighbor, Saturn. Such a serious downer. The happy Sun in Sagittarius intervenes with some solar therapy--face the challenge and compromise. Forget about living up to Saturn’s rigorous expectations. Let’s just send him a free pizza, turn down the volume, and enjoy our lives.
Happy December 17, 2011

Aries (March 20-April 19)
You’re in a warm friendly mood today and people enjoy being around you--and vice versa. You can give yourself permission to relax--you’re not interested in living up to anyone else’s expectations. You have a sense of comfort and ease. It’s a perfect day to go home for the holidays. Hallelujah.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Your love has a nurturing quality today, so you might enjoy bringing joy or food or healing energy to a loved one. This is not a day to be alone--such a waste. Accept that party invitation. You’ll feel good and at ease. Your only “problem” today is that you dont feel like working!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You get shots of energy today from some solar flares loaded with willpower to make things happen. Life is cookin’ up a good time for you, especially this evening. Wear your “Life is Good” tee shirt. It’s true. Overlook any temptation to be serious today. Beautify your home. Have a party. Your only problem today is feeling so lazy you sleep through breakfast in bed!

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
If you’ve already finished decorating your own home (and you probably have), you can help a friend decorate theirs. You don’t feel like being alone. You have a sense of well being and you’d enjoy a party. You feel nurturing, so maybe everyone can gather around your punchbowl. Spread your joy.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Solar flares going up today are adding a bright spot to your life, and signaling a release of pent up energy. You can relax and clear the air. This evening brings a loving, warm atmosphere at home, courtesy of Venus in concert with the Moon. You’ll enjoy having friends and family around you. It’s an easy, even lazy, good time.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Your mood is good and you have an overall sense of well-being. It’s a perfect day for a pot luck gathering. Everyone contributes and the group forms around sharing. You get a burst of solar power today that fuels you willpower. It’s coming from a heated Sagittarian fire and can either generate small dissatisfactions with your loved ones, or it can put a creative edge to your work. Always your wise, grounded choice.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
The focus is on others today, and in particular close intimate relationships--your favorite thing! You’ll get an impetus to clear the air with someone. You’ll both see that while little things destructively add up, they really are just little things. Close the gap. It may be time to refresh and stop taking their love for granted. It’s a great day to beautify or decorate your home. You feel content, maybe a little lazy. Get together with friends at home. Light a fire.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Donate the party hats and invite yourself over. You feel like being with others, and your good mood is infectious. If you try to go it alone today, you may get irritable and magnify some petty annoyance in your loved one. Off the couch, even if you feel a bit lazy.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
The Sun is sending up a flare, signaling a burst of energy that represents a turning point for you. Use it to take care of something you’ve overlooked in busier times, but that is still bothering you. Shining a light on a little irritation can have a big, freeing effect today. Your mood is lively and you feel a sense of ease. Don’t waste it being alone.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
A burst of fiery energy today generates sparks that motivate you to unearth a tension that’s gone unspoken until now. Probably appears as a small annoyance, like leaving poppy seeds all over the kitchen counter from the morning bagel--again. You realize that carrying this little irritation has come between you and your loved one. Talk it out. No one wants to feel angry today. If fact, it’s a perfect day for socializing and having fun.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Accept that invitation to a holiday celebration. This is a great day for group activities. You’ll enjoy being with others. Venus is helping you break with the past in a loving way. In the course of the day you get a challenge, that may come through a friend, to release and let go. Perhaps something stale in your relationship, something you've taken for granted. This evening is a relaxed good time. A new love could enter.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
You’re in the mood to invite friends over and enjoy their company. There’s a lazy, warm feeling to the day, even if you have to face up to some little tensions in your most intimate relationships. The Sun wants you to take a stand, and refuse to be the one who always picks up the wet towels, or gets stuck with the breakfast dishes. Speaking up will break the tension and allow more room for love. Makes for a better party!
