TODAY: While these planets are happy for you to take all the time you need strategizing and data gathering, they're watching rather closely (think shark observing potential lunch) to see whether your program is feasible and functional, and whether you're organized to implement it - as in real, live, tangible steps - when the timing is right and/or the relevant parties are back in place après their year-end revelries.

YOUR BIRTHDAY: How about a dedicated bout of culling, to make room for the people and projects that make you smile widely and bounce around gleefully on your pogo stick? This year's bottom line: The most progress will be derived from doing those things that intrigue and inspire. So, clear the decks, jettison arrangements that lack a certain je ne sais quoi and embrace the new with enthusiasm.

Aries Monday, December 22, 2014
Notice emerging opportunities, any one of which could be the start of something big that you have more than earned and do deserve. These are brought to you by the New Moon in Capricorn, which is paving the way (or opening the door) to a few of your favorite things, e.g. additional funds, public recognition, success, acclaim...
Taurus Monday, December 22, 2014
If you want to do it, have it or run it differently, thank the New Moon. Whether you're motivated to change environments, broaden your range, hop a steamer to faraway ports or otherwise widen your reach, go for it. By the way: Despite your affection for your associates, ixnay on letting them distract you from pursuing your dreams.
Gemini Monday, December 22, 2014
This New Moon in persevering Capricorn emphasizes your material needs, but monitor ye olde emotional needs as well. If you lose sight of them to facilitate a co-production - or make it easier for somebody else to function - you may score points with the other guys but (really not so fabulous or even healthy) lose them with yourself.
Cancer Monday, December 22, 2014
The New Moon in Capricorn highlights your attachments and ties, some of which may be, uh, fraying. If so, make an effort to relinquish those set-ups that (even you would concede) have seen better days. Sometimes one door has to close for another to open, and you can speed the process by moving your attractive (but firmly-lodged) foot.
Leo Monday, December 22, 2014
Gather the relevant data and then judiciously evaluate your commercial, personal, physical and spiritual state, in addition to the ways that you can best aid and abet those in your immediate orbit or vicinity. This info, furnished by the New Moon, should be useful in editing your master plan for your future health, education, welfare, satisfaction and pleasure.
Virgo Monday, December 22, 2014
New found (or reinforced) assurance in your talents, skills, and abilities is grace a the New Moon in earthbound Capricorn. And while you'll still have to show the world your stuff and perhaps even tell a few people a few home truths, rather than daunting you (let's be honest here), this prospect could be right up your alley.
Libra Monday, December 22, 2014
The subject of this highly potent New Moon in Capricorn: Whether you can take care of yourself, advance your ambition or feather your nest if you're busy appeasing others (colleagues, companions, co-workers) and their program happens to differ from your own. [FYI: Since this could well pertain to career and domestic matters, the stakes aren't exactly low...]
Scorpio Monday, December 22, 2014
Time for your yearly check up of your definitions for "freedom" "individuality" and "range." This New Moon gives you the go-ahead to organize/arrange for as much of these as you can manage. Plus, it underscores quality of life and quality of friendship issues, inviting you to lay the groundwork for an everyday structure that serves (and suits) you.
Sagittarius Monday, December 22, 2014
The emphasis is on financial/creative affairs as well as the most efficient venues or outlets for your unique gifts and talents with the New Moon in Capricorn. Keep this non-negotiable component in mind as you hammer out various terms, conditions and agreements: It is what it is, you are who you are and you do what you do.
Capricorn Monday, December 22, 2014
Voila your yearly opportunity to review your overall program or raison d'etre and do the necessary altering, adjusting and recalibrating, brought to you by the New Moon in your penetrating and transformative sign. As an added bonus: You're being encouraged to excuse/lose any existing patterns or routines that, for whatever reason, no longer thrill, chill, excite, motivate, inspire...
Aquarius Monday, December 22, 2014
If you're questioning the intelligence of recent decisions, the viability of your policies or the degree to which they are (or aren't) contributing to your personal comfort, or otherwise feeling exposed, indict the New Moon in Capricorn. The good news: Useful information can be mined from your musings. Plus, you only have to do this once a year.
Pisces Monday, December 22, 2014
And precisely how many times did you press "send?" Today's New Moon in Capricorn suggest that you are on the verge of receiving the new - the new contacts, new connections, new excitement that you've been busily fostering or ordering up. Furthermore, some of this activity (or these associations) could really please, amuse and be lasting and profitable as well.
