My Stars: Sagittarians get over “the rim of their rut” with the New Moon

Sagittarius sign
Sagittarius sign

Sagittarius (November 22-December 22): While your ruling planet, Jupiter, is still retrograde, acting as a break for all of us, the New Moon Dec. 12 should aid to get you to see over the rim of the rut you seem to be traveling in, allowing you to feel more comfortable with your plans.

Capricorn sign

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): We can always depend on you to brighten our passage into the Yule season. While it may not seem that everything is quite going in the direction that you might have desired, we can at least depend on your facility to point out the glimmer of hope in every situation. Neptune supports your perceiving the opportunities.

aquarius sign

Aquarius (January 20-February 18): This Winter provides the perfect stage for you to be the Soothsayer to us all like the slave Pseudolus in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Your Moon and Neptune get together and make it easy for you to produce the bologna that you can sell to each of us to buy.

Pisces sign

Pisces (February 19-March 20): If you have any friends who are Aquarians, and the two of you put your heads together, you could easily have the rest of us doubled over because of your combined antics this winter. You, however, will be the more compassionate one in your social situation. It also seems that some financial news is on the horizon. Congrats on that!

aries sign

Aries (March 21-April 20): It seems that the layout of planetary influences for your sign was dictated by Suze Orman. We’re all aware of her advice; your chart is offering the exact same inputs. Do you really need it? This is the time for you to consider the future.

Taurus sign

Taurus (April 21-May 20): The heavens want you to remember this word; diligence. Remember grammar school, when some of us would write on our hands (I’m not omniscient; you might still use your hand as a notepad). If you need to, write it on yourself to keep it fresh in your mind (a tattoo of it is not necessary). This season you really need to apply yourself.

Gemini sign

Gemini (May 21-June 20): All the most influential planets, interacting with your Moon, suggest you seek out more indirect ways to achieve what’s on your mind. This is a good time to work smart rather than exhausting yourself running around. Learn to delegate; don’t put it all on your shoulders.

Cancer sign

Cancer (June 21-July 22): While you may have felt underutilized lately, the Full Moon Dec. 26 sweeps away any blockages or hindrances that have been building up over last season. This is a good time to hone some of those skill sets that haven’t been called on, as they will come in handy not only for yourself, but for those near and dear to you.

Leo sign

Leo (July 23-August 22): It’s difficult to sidestep one’s responsibilities, ever while cleaning out the closet to find those “make me feel special” shoes that you bought on sale ages ago. They are perfect. Just like Dorothy Gale in Oz, the planets will show you the correct path into the New Year.

Virgo sign

Virgo (August 23-September 22): Well, it seems that December will have you staring at a wall, trying to find something to distract you, in anticipation of the arrival of January while you will find yourself spending a lot of your time asking “Is that all there is?” New fabulousness should kick in as we near the New Year for you, and answer that question.

Libra sign

Libra (September 23-October 22): Mars and the Sun seem to be making a lot of distracting chatter behind your sign, which makes it difficult to hear the instructions that Venus is attempting to communicate to you. After we get through the holidays, you should find it more easy to hear that in cheerier ways, giving you more clear direction.

Scorpio sign

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): I’m afraid that it seems that yours is another sign that will be taking the attitude that it’s taking way too long for the show to start. It’s not that there aren’t some enjoyable occurrences, but don’t be surprised if they do not entirely satisfy your desires. Things should prove more pleasing as we move through most of January.
