TODAY: Special bonus: These planets are applauding and cheerleading your efforts or venture, and it would be no surprise if you were the happy recipient of some unsolicited validation. And since encouragement generally makes everybody feel seen and heard (and that they aren’t toiling endlessly and invisibly for no discernible reward/reason) it’s safe to say that the overall climate is conducive to both growth and expansion.
YOUR BIRTHDAY: Level your sights on a long-term goal (aim as high as you wish!) and set off in hot pursuit. This is one of those “the only ones who never fail are the ones who never try/if you build it they will come/how will you know unless you take your best shot” years, and your first order of business should be to see what you can do.

Some clever general once opined that surprise was the essence of attack. So, in this instance, being stoic rather than dramatic about the topic on the docket – even if it’s less entertaining for you – will be more productive and effective. Plus, you can throw your counterparts completely off guard by your response, and in that way seize the advantage.
TAURUSFriday, December 09, 2016
You know how you can be when you want something... Try not to override your bank balance (or common sense) and talk yourself into taking steps that aren’t in the best interests of a collaboration or partnership. Yes, you could make compelling arguments, justify your contentions and rationalize your positions, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you should.
GEMINIFriday, December 09, 2016
Run your latest game plan through spellcheck, anti-virus, and glitch-find one more time. Why?

CANCERFriday, December 09, 2016
Take a breath and resolve to try not to squeeze blood from a turnip. For somebody who viscerally understands the concepts of process and timing, you could still be having issues reconciling your desire to get the job done/make it happen/close the deal with external realities, i.e. client in Madagascar and unreachable for another week.
LEOFriday, December 09, 2016
Boss Sun and Jupiter ask: Ever tried to open a jar that was stuck? And banged it on the floor to break the seal? And hit the lid with a wooden spoon? And finally shoved it away in annoyance? And, returned to it – minutes later – and it opened like a dream? Same deal with an ongoing matter.
VIRGOFriday, December 09, 2016
How about putting on your top hat (tails and cane optional) and performing a rousing rendition of “You've Got to Accentuate the Positive?” Truly, much as you’d like somebody (or something) to be somebody (or something) they’re not, you’re better off utilizing what you do have, rather than engaging in a round of wishful thinking.
LIBRAFriday, December 09, 2016
A friend, co-worker, significant other, or relative could be minorly or majorly irksome, and you may be tempted to tell him/her so just to clear the air. Okay, but since it may well have the opposite effect, deliberate carefully and make sure that’s a risk worth running before you open your mouth and hold forth.
SCORPIOFriday, December 09, 2016
Oh, there’s no need to emulate Sisyphus and try to push that infernal boulder uphill...! Even if an arrangement is not going precisely according to your plan or schedule, and even if you harbor concerns that it will refuse to do so in your lifetime, nothing could be further from the truth, as upcoming events will soon corroborate.
SAGITTARIUSFriday, December 09, 2016
The Sun amusing Vizier Jupiter is the perfect occasion to exercise your “the cup is half full/always look on the bright side” muscles. Why? A somewhat crunchy situation will likely be more responsive to a “we can work it out” approach than the more readily accessible, “you’ve got to be kidding, what did you do now?!” version.
CAPRICORNFriday, December 09, 2016
With the Sun entertaining bountiful Jupiter, you can persuade anyone (yourself included) that you’re fully committed to a course of action. Fine, but ensure you’ve done the pertinent research and actually checked in with yourself to verify your feelings. Otherwise, you could prevail upon a lot of people (yourself included) to pursue something about which you’re fundamentally lukewarm.
AQUARIUSFriday, December 09, 2016
Now how exactly do you mean to achieve your target – and while we’re on the subject, have you defined it, and do you have faith that it can be met? Make a point of ensuring that you aren’t building in your own obstacles as you endeavor to go about your business, or along your merry way.
PISCESFriday, December 09, 2016
They got it right with the proverb “a watched pot never boils.” Be extremely calm (indeed, serene) about the pace of important affairs, even if it’s glacial. And, console yourself with the reflection that a job worth doing truly is worth doing well, even if the dratted undertaking takes an epoch or three longer than you'd allotted.
