Your Horoscopes

A LOOK into the stars for the week up until Sunday December 11.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23—December 21)

When others get on your nerves, go off and do something entirely different. A bit of travel may be possible. This could even lead to you meeting someone quite extraordinary. Well, it is that time of the year again when you are willing to open your mind and your heart. Want to show a relative that you are serious about something or someone? Don’t go overboard!

CAPRICORN (Dec 22—January 20)

See something that you want and go after it next week. Does success in this area mean that you have to make a compromise? Turn the tables by asking an intimate question. Understanding comes through discussion and flexibility. Wanting to do something alone can upset a relative. Perhaps you could include them in some way at a later date. It’s worth a try.

AQUARIUS (January 21—February 19)

Someone who attracts you does not seem to be responding. Stay friendly and available and give them time. You may be in a bit of a rut at this time of the year. Many will turn to a traditional holiday during stressful times. You are no exception. Consider something corny. Lay it on thick to make it really successful. Share and give.

PISCES (February 20—March 20)

Although there seems to be a certain amount of chaos around you next week, you cope remarkably well. Give your time and affection generously, bringing someone into your sphere who really needs your company. Be honest and strong when put in a position where you have to be in charge. This may only be of a conversation but it means a lot to you.

ARIES (March 21—April 20)

In a week that is full of interactions with others, you need to be very aware of the effect that you are having on people. Some are rather charmed by your forthright approach but others are intimidated. Being a little too honest with sensitive souls could see them run in the opposite direction. In some ways, you would like things to stay the same. Deep down, though, you are aware of a certain restlessness.

TAURUS (April 21—May 21)

Something very personal that you started in June is now demanding your attention. Be absolutely honest with yourself about whether you want to continue in the same way. If you do not, be tactful. Health seems to be tangled up with finances. Deal with any problems in these areas now to avoid stress. Plan well ahead for the holidays or your favourite people may not be available.

GEMINI (May 22—June 21)

Feeling ambitious? Planning something special? Get it sorted out early to avoid disappointment. A stressful event makes you realise just who you can rely on: Remember that! A lack of energy could be due to a lack of incentive. What areas of your life make you feel less than enthusiastic? Look to the New Year to make positive and far-reaching changes.

CANCER (June 22—July 23)

In a busy time, you may not want to see other people too often. The trouble is they do want to see you! Why not throw a party so that no-one misses out on your charming company? Although energy is not high, the incentive is there to want to move on socially. Accept invitations. You don’t have to stay all night if you don’t want to. However, be tactful.

LEO (July 24—August 23)

A love of the home and entertaining in it really bring out the best in you. Little pleases you more than making your friends happy and comfortable. Don’t splash out too much, though, or someone could get envious. Remember that not everyone has your charming ways. Avoid inadvertently flirting with someone who is spoken for. Deal with practical matters early.

VIRGO (August 24—September 23)

Your sparkling social side starts to come out next week. What is busy now can only get busier. Be super-organised from the start. Get firm numbers if organising a party and keep presents simple and pretty. Looking forward to your new year challenges? Maybe, but concentrate on the holiday season first. Avoid ignoring someone who can help your career along.

LIBRA (September 24—October 23)

Take the lead in everything that you do next week. It is not a time to be modest about your organising prowess. Friends may look to you for help forming their New-Year resolutions. Why not start a fitness or book club to get them up and running? What you cannot find, you are able to create. Unusual presents are your speciality, but keep them to a budget.

SCORPIO (October 24—November 22)

Seek out those who calm and soothe your jangled nerves next week. Avoid those who appear to be out of control. Small matters could bog you down unless you take control fast and get them out of the way. Someone seems determined to sidetrack you, perhaps romantically. Keep your wits about you and don’t be wound up by a relative. Dust off your sense of humour at the weekend.
