Light A Candle Today!
In many different traditions lighting a candle is a sacred action. It expresses more than words can express. It has to do with gratefulness. From time immemorial, people have lit candles in sacred places. You may want to begin or end your day by the sacred ritual of lighting a candle on this gratefulness. Or you may want to light a birthday candle for a friend. One single guideline is all you need: Slow down and do it with full attention.

For a fun family-friendly faery spell, make your own sugarplum dreamtime tea with the ones you love most. This brew takes our dreams to that land of fantasy and wonder, making bedtime a faery ritual to share stories honoring the light and warmth we create just by being together.

In an airtight glass container, mix together 1/3 cup each of dried chamomile, diced prunes, and local honey. Add 7 drops of rose oil to appease Titania, the queen of the fae, the mother to all sprites and wee little ones. Brew by combining 2 teaspoons of this elixir to 1 cup of boiled milk. To be assured of adventure and joy as you dream, sip this healthful warm tea just before bedtime and delightfully share a wee cup or two with your house faeries.

May you be blessed with glowing dreams of the springtime fae to warm your long winter nights.

A Key to Protection
December 14, 2019 by Blake Octavian Blair

Saturdays are under Hecate’s care. Today, let’s work with her to create a protection talisman using a key, an item commonly associated with her. Use this talisman when the stray energies flying around you are getting to be a bit much to tolerate. Find yourself a key and a length of cord. It needs to be a key you will not use for any other function or purpose. A modern or antique key will work equally well. Light a candle to Hecate, attach the cord to the key so that it may be worn as a necklace, and place the key next to the candle. Recite:

Goddess Hecate, guardian of witches,
Your dark cloak of protection
I do invoke!
A key to unlock these mysteries,
Enchant and instill.
I’ll wear it around my neck
So that with your protection I shall fill!
So mote it be!

Allow the candle to safely burn down and then wear your talisman as needed.

Make Your Home into an Altar
December 13, 2019 by Barbara Ardinger

Technically, the space in which a saint—or a Pagan—lives is called a shrine. But that smacks of sanctimony, so let’s just turn a room into an altar. The four walls become a rectangular circle decorated with symbols of the elements. Make adjustments for architecture (doors, windows) you cannot change. Here are a few decorative suggestions:

East, air: Move at least one of your bookcases to this wall. Add decorative birds (I have an origami passenger pigeon), a witch flying on her broom, a glass “full” of air, a fluffy white feather, or a beautiful Victorian fan.

South, fire: A solar wheel, a candelabra with red candles, a Brigid’s cross, sunflowers, glass rocks (especially red or orange)

West, water: Mermaids, an aquarium, shells and beach glass, a plant growing in water

North, earth: Houseplants, geodes, other largish rocks

Now stand in the center and cast your circle. You are the living altar.

Dispel Illusions
December 12, 2019 by Ember Grant

Begin by arranging white candles of any shape or size on a mirror. Just use what you have available. Leave room in the center of the mirror. In that space, place the Moon card from a Tarot deck, if you have one. If you don’t have this card, simply draw a full moon on a piece of paper and use that.

The Moon card is traditionally said to represent intuition, dreams, uncertainty, and illusion. Use this spell to help refine your powers of intuition and perception. Let the power of the full moon increase your understanding that you may not always see the total picture. Let this card remind you to look closely but also to trust your intuition. We can’t rely solely on our intuition or on what we see—we need a blend of both.

Light the candles and chant:
Reflect the truth, help me see
Beyond mirage and mystery.
Let illusions be dispelled,
Intuition be upheld.
Let the moonlight be my guide,
Revealing where the truth can hide.

Communicating with a Gnome
December 11, 2019 by Storm Faerywolf

This spell will assist you in contacting a gnome: an earth elemental. Typically, these beings provide strength, steadfastness, endurance, and the ability of transmutation. Invoke them when you feel weak, unruly, or in danger of being led astray.

You will need a black candle and a simple rock large enough to at least nearly fill the palm of your hand.

Face the north, or the direction your tradition associates with the earth element. Ground and center. Place the candle on your altar, with the rock in front of it so that from your vantage point the rock completely obscures the candle flame. Enter a trance and gaze at the rock so that you can see the light of the candle around it. Call to the gnomes—the conscious beings of earth—to appear before you:

Creatures of the silent earth,
Reveal here to me your form.

Look into the stone with the Witch’s eye: your inner sight. Allow the gnomes to reveal themselves to you. Once they have, you may commune with them as you wish.

Crystal Reflections
December 10, 2019 by Najah Lightfoot

Crystals are sacred beings. Although they are detached from their source, the Earth Mother, their connection is strong. Crystals never lose their connection to the spiritual and the divine.

Find a crystal that calls to you. Sit quietly with it. Hold it. Look at it. Stare at its facets, sides, top, and bottom. Gaze deeply into the crystal. Close your eyes and allow it to speak to you. As thoughts and images form within your mind, be one with them.

When you feel ready, open your eyes. Thank your crystal and keep it in a place where you can look at it every day. Allow yourself to build a practice of simply sitting with it. Let your crystal be a guide into peacefulness and reflection.

The Lure of Lore
December 09, 2019 by Emyme

We are creeping toward the Christmas and New Year holidays, the Twelfth Night and Three Kings festivities—the time of year when many families hunker down around the table and tell stories. Folk tales and fairy stories have been around since language began. Worldwide, the classics enjoy alternative plots and characters. As group entertainment, might I suggest a collective story-writing experience in which no witch is evil ( because we know we are not!). Provide paper and writing instruments for each family member. Choose a story, and have everyone contribute. Even the youngest can draw illustrations. Set the timer, have everyone read their ideas out loud, and then work to combine them into an interesting and personal take on a classic. Edit, polish, and print copies for everyone. Abracadabra! A wonderful holiday memory has been created, a tradition begun.

Winter Weather Folklore
Signs in nature of a cold winter? Let’s explore weather folklore!
By The Editors of The Old Farmer’s Almanac

Weather folklore is a favorite among Almanac readers, and no more so than when it comes to the prognostics of the wintery season. Here are some of our favorite proverbs—including Christmas lore!

When it comes to winter and snow, weather folklore abounds! Look to nature for signs of a cold winter or possibly a very snowy Christmas! Here are some age-old proverbs and adages. Do any of these proverbs ring true to you? Please share observations or questions in the comments below.
Christmas Lore

We’ve often heard weather lore that suggests the weather at Christmastime affects the weather at Easter (spring):

Christmas in snow, Easter in mud!

Another proverb says the same thing in a different way:

Green Christmas, white Easter.

And similarly:

At Christmas meadows green, at Easter covered with frost.

So many hours of Sun on Christmas Day, so many frosts in the month of May.

If ice will bear a man before Christmas, it will not bear a mouse afterward.

Much of the traditional weather folklore was about predicting the following year’s harvest:

If there is much wind on Christmas Day, trees will bear much fruit.

A windy Christmas is a sign of a good year to come.

A green Christmas brings a heavy harvest.

If at Christmas ice hangs on the willow, clover may be cut at Easter.

When Christmas Eve is clear, our Lord will give us an abundance of wine and corn.

If the Sun shines through an apple tree on Christmas, there will be an abundant crop of apples in the coming year.

If December be changeable and mild, The whole winter will remain a child.

If the wind blows much on Stephen’s Day (December 26), the grapes will be bad in the next year.

Winter Lore

Though Christmas Day is an easy calendar date to hang your hat on, there are also many general proverbs and prognostications focused on frost and snow.

Three white frosts and next a storm.

Heavy frosts are generally followed by fine, clear weather.

The north wind doth blow, and we shall have snow.

Snow for a se’nnight (week) is a mother to the earth, for ever after a stepmother.

When snow falls in the mud, it remains all winter.

When the first snowflakes are large, the snowstorm will be a lasting one. When they are small, the storm will be a short one.

If snow begins at mid of day, expect a foot of it to lay.

When the snow falls dry, it means to lie. But flakes light and soft bring rain oft.

When snow melts off the roof, the next storm will be rain. When the snow blows off, reckon on snow.

The date of the first snow foretells the number of snowstorms for the winter. Should the year’s first snow, for example, come down on the 12th of the month, you can expect 12 more storms before the winter’s done.

We hope you enjoyed this winter weather folklore. For a winter forecast geared to the coming year, check out this year’s edition of The Old Farmer’s Almanac!

Heartwings Love Notes 910 Stuffing Before and After

Heartwings says, “Planned leftovers make fine meals.”

Turkey is often a traditional Christmas or holiday meal, and for many, stuffing is a favorite part of it. Usually a stuffing recipe fills a turkey to be roasted, plus a panful to bake toward the end. While it is possible and for some easier to purchase a prepared stuffing, I have always preferred my own. A cornbread stuffing suits me best. In addition, since I have become gluten intolerant, cornbread, which is gluten free when made without any wheat ingredients, makes an ideal stuffing base.

It is best to make the cornbread the day before ou will make the stuffing. It is fine to use a mix, of course, however here is my recipe in case you want to make your own: Preheat oven to 425. Grease a square8X8 inch baking pan or use parchment paper cut to fit and grease only the sides. Measure out 2 cups medium grind corn meal, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 egg, 1 cup any kind of milk dairy or non, ¼ cup melted butter or light olive oil, 1 teaspoon baking powder, ½ teaspoon baking soda, ½ teaspoon salt.

Method: Beat egg, oil or melted butter and milk together. Measure and mingle cornmeal, baking powder, soda and salt. Combine ingredients well if using oil, lightly if using butter. Scrape into prepared baking pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until top springs back when touched lightly. Take out of oven and place on a rack to cool. When you are ready to make the stuffing, cut or break it into small pieces and turn into a medium-large bowl.

Melt 1 stick butter. Add ½ cup finely chopped celery, ½ finely chopped onion. Cook until transparent. Stir in 1 teaspoon each dried parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. Beat an egg, pour onto cornbread and add herbs and butter. Stir well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Optional: if you can find them, chop and add roasted and peeled chestnuts. Bake stuffing in pan along with the bird at the end for around 40 minutes. Next day or so, sauté left over stuffing in butter and break eggs over it. Cover and cook until eggs are done. Or simply sauté and serve instead of potatoes, pasta or rice with any meat and vegetables.

May your holiday meal be filling and fun, and your leftovers tasty too!

Blessings and best Regards, Tasha Halpert <tashahal@gmail.com>

Signs
By Madisyn Taylor

The universe is always offering us signs to help us, we just need to slow down and pay attention.

The universe can often relay messages to us through signs. Often, we are too busy to stop and consider what may or may not be a sign. We may ask the universe for guidance, yet fail to recognize the sign it sends us in response. Learning the subtle language of signs can help you interpret the guidance the universe sends your way. We all have been blessed with a connection that allows the universe to communicate directly with us. To be able to understand the information relayed over that connection, however, it is necessary that we learn to pay attention and know what to look for.

To see and correctly interpret a sign, you must open your heart and mind to the universe and invite its guidance into your life. Many of us are blind to the signs we receive because we expect angels or our spirit guides to speak to us in a booming voice and tell us exactly what we need to hear. But signs are usually of this earth and therefore easier to encounter. A song lodged in your mind or a number that seems to pop up everywhere you look after you’ve asked the universe for guidance can both be signs. Signs may come through the animal world, from strangers, or jump out of a book in the form of an insightful passage. A sign may be a direct answer to one of your questions. Other signs may point you in the right direction, warn of impending difficulties, or show you a different way. If you want the universe to send you a sign, tell it that you are ready and willing to accept its guidance.

Not everything you hear or see will be a sign. If you are receptive and patient, however, the signs you receive will become easier to recognize. It is important to listen to your intuition. A sign can mean many things to different people, and only you can decipher a sign’s meaning is for you. As you practice reading the signs and following their guidance, the universe will send more of them your way.

A Tree Called Twinkles by Stephen Halpert

A Christmas Tale for the Young at Heart

The forest of evergreen trees grew by the side of the mountain. Some were so tall they could look over the tops of the other trees and see far beyond the borders of the forest. Others, like Twinkles, were considerably smaller. Growing in the shade of the taller trees, Twinkles was not very tall at all. At about twenty-four inches, he was probably the youngest tree in the forest.
Twinkles was a baby fir tree. He had very small delicate green buds on his branches. They were so small that you could hardly see them even if you looked very hard. Though some of the trees around him were indeed very tall, there were others that were not, and it was these that Twinkles envied. It would be nice, he thought to himself not to feel so small and insignificant. Though he might not expect to grow as tall as those who could see above the forest, at least he might be as tall as those around him.
Twinkles thought also that if he were at least a little bigger, then maybe some of the trees around him might pay him some attention and be a little nicer and share. He felt very lonely, because when they didn’t ignore him, they treated him badly. Sadly, for him, they would look down on him, snicker and say hurtful thing; sneering about his small trunk and spindly branches. It made him feel so sad, he didn’t know what to do.
Perhaps if I was supposed to be any bigger than I am then I would be, Twinkles told himself in a brave voice. Just because I’m not as tall and big and bushy as they are doesn’t mean that I’m not as good as them in other ways. Try as he could, however, he couldn’t exactly come up with those other ways, but he knew they were there, and that one day he’d get them figured out. After all, he would tell himself, we’re all made the same and it’s just that their branches are bigger than mine. Maybe I just need to grow more.
One day there was a great rumbling and commotion. Twinkles knew that something was coming up the mountain.
But he was too small to see what it was. And as luck might have it whoever they were couldn’t see Twinkles either. Men came and walked among the trees tying orange strips to many of them.
One of the trees preened himself. “Look at these beautiful orange strips we now wear,” he said. “And certainly those with the orange strips should be looked upon with envy and appreciation by those less fortunate.” One of his branches swiped Twinkles’ trunk hard enough to make him bend over.
Then all the trees with orange strips flapped their branches and sang songs dating back to the early festivals of the trees.
That night it began to snow. As the frosty flakes descended, the orange strips glowed even brighter and the trees around Twinkles flourished their branches, shaking their snow all over Twinkles and those other, smaller trees they considered to be less fortunate.
One day the thunderous rumble was heard again, but this time there was machinery to go with the large convoy of trucks. They parked near the trees and Twinkles didn’t like the look of the machinery they carried. He could see the trucks had letters on them:
Though he could not read the words, they said “Christmas Trees”
Still Twinkles had a sad feeling. He could sense what was about to happen. Even though they had been mean to him, Twinkles cried out to the other trees, “Oh, I am so sorry.”
Then Twinkles heard the terrible sound of chainsaws and someone called out, “just the ones with the orange tags.” What had once been happy singing suddenly changed to cries of desperation and panic. The trees around him tried to crouch away from the painful electric saws, but to no avail.
“Leave us alone,” Twinkles cried. “Don’t you know how valuable trees are to the good health of the planet?”
The men finished their work and loaded the fallen trees on their trucks. Once they had driven away there was an amazing stillness all around him. Twinkles had never been so alone. He was one of a few smaller trees left standing.
“Look,” came the slight chirp of a bird. “Here’s one; how lucky we are, we can sleep warm in the shelter of its branches.
“Yes,” agreed her mate. “And we can have a safe place to one day make our nest.” And as the snow fell and the wind howled Twinkles could only smile and feel the warmth of the love of the little bird family nestled into in his fir branches.
From far above him he heard a sighing sound. It was one of the tallest trees that had been spared as being too tall. “Oh little trees, because the trees around you have been taken away now you will grow to be big and tall like us. One day like us you will have many birds in your branches. Grow well, little ones, grow well.”

Homemade “Magic Shell.” Mix Coconut Oil and Nutella together in a 2:1 ratio. By itself it’s amazing to snack on, but guess what?? You can spoon it over ice cream and it hardens within a minute, making a yummy alternative to store-bought crackle topping.

SUPER easy homemade caramel sauce, perfect for dipping food into or drizzling onto ice cream. Melt a half cup of butter in a saucepan on low heat. Add 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, 3/4 cup corn syrup and a 14-oz can of sweetened condensed milk. Stir until it comes to a boil. Remove from heat and whisk in one teaspoon vanilla and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. You can serve it hot, room temperature, or cold! It’s addicting!

Surrender Box
By Madisyn Taylor

A surrender box is a tool to help us to let go of our burdens so the universe can take care of them for us.

There are times when our minds become too full. Our to-do lists, worries, plans, and dreams may be so crowded together in our heads that we don’t have room to think. We may believe that we are somehow taking care of our desires and concerns by keeping them at the forefront of our minds. In maintaining our mental hold on every detail, however, we may actually delay the realization of our dreams and the resolution of our worries because we won’t let them go. At times such as these, we may want to use a surrender box.

A surrender box allows us to let go of our worries and desires so the universe can take care of them for us. We write down what we want or need to happen and then place the note into a box. By writing and placing our thoughts in the box, we are taking action and letting the universe know we need help and are willing to surrender our feelings. We give ourselves permission to not concern ourselves with that problem any longer and trust that the universe is taking care of it. You may even want to decorate your box and place it in a special place. Your surrender box is a sacred container for your worries. Not only do you free up space in your mind by letting go of our worries and desires and dropping them into your surrender box, but you are giving your burden over to a higher power. Once we drop our worries and desires into the surrender box, we free our minds so we can be fully present in each moment.

Surrendering our worries and concerns and placing them in the hands of the universe doesn’t mean that we’ve given up or have been defeated. Instead, we are releasing the realization of our desires and the resolution of our worries and no longer concerning ourselves with their outcomes. It’s always fun to go back and pull the slips of paper out of the box once your requests have been granted. And it’s amazing how quickly problems go away and dreams come true when we finally let go and allow a higher power to help us.

Weekly Horoscopes Beginning Sunday, 17 December 2019

If you`re born within cusp period (16 to 26 of any month); you`re advised to read horoscopes of both signs covered by that period. You`re in the border; you may have influences from houses within those signs.

Outlines are longer versions; consists of every possible detail of everyday and based on three parts of each sign: 1st, 2nd & 3rd Decan; that is, any of three divisions of 10° within a sign of the zodiac. Even if you know or don`t know your Decan; I recommend, please read all three Decan.
Aries
Personal theme: I am!!
Fire & cardinal sign: March 21 — April 19

Your horoscope for this week:

Ordinarily, you welcome change, even if it`s unexpected. However, you prefer being able to discuss plans and make decisions. The problem is that the ideas, offers or events currently reshaping your life, your finances and possibly world are moving so swiftly, it`s about asking questions as you proceed. As you`ll realise, others are facing similar changes. Explore together and you can discuss your discoveries.

You`re aware it`s almost Christmas but this won`t stop you from persevering with a personal aim. The goal you are chasing is worthwhile and even if other people are losing interest, you are determined to achieve it. Being able to see ways out of current difficulties is empowering. You`re a versatile person and this will be a big help in a crisis. So, take charge when the going gets tough. Others admire and respect your leadership talents.

By Friday – at least a far as work is concerned – you should know exactly where you stand. It`s probable that much has been going on in the background for several months. In recent days you may have been more aware of what others were discussing (marking of papers or assessment?) and now awaiting results. Yes, tension could be high midweek and you may feel you`re treading water. Yet by the time Venus changes signs on Friday all will likely be revealed. It`s then you that you should know which team you will be working with in 2020. You should also be aware that opportunities are opening up unexpectedly and that the path ahead is rather different to what you had imagined.

Taurus
Personal theme: I have!!
Earth & fixed sign: April 20 — May 20

Your horoscope for this week:

Inconvenient if not upsetting as recent difficulties were, looking back on them, it`s clear you learnt a lot. These insights are raising questions about existing arrangements and future plans you`ve regarded as unchanged. While only recently that was true, as circumstances around you are shifting, both existing arrangements and longstanding plans must as well. The more options you explore, the more excited you`ll be.

It`s important to look at all angles of a situation before making changes or committing yourself to new ventures for the New Year. You would regret making snap decisions just to get some people off your back. You hate to rush and as always, careful planning is advisable now. Good communication is important if you are to get the most satisfaction and enjoyment out of your days. Be sure to return a phone call while it is on your mind.

Your ruling planet Venus, arrives at the apex of your solar chart on Friday. Its annual transit of this area is excellent for reviewing aims and objectives and tuning into what it is that you really, really want. In preparation for this, you may be aware of doors opening that a few months ago seemed either closed or not even there at all. In short, with the cosmic weather having changed substantially, the outlook is very different. It`s likely imperative to be too sure that your network of contacts is up-to-date. It wouldn`t be a bad plan to check that you have correct e-mail addresses and numbers. In fact, this exercise could yet prove `money in the bank` by the end of January.

Gemini
Personal theme: I think!!
Air sign: May 21 — June 20

Your horoscope for this week:

Absorbing as the events triggered by the recent Gemini Full Moon were, the fact they forced you to talk things over with family, friends or colleagues wasn`t just important. This ensures you`ve back up when you must make decisions about the current thrilling ideas or offers. Not only are others insights useful, you could work together on making the best of these.

Your Christmas shopping bill will be increased when some friends or relatives invite themselves to stay. You want everything to be flawless and to make the festive season enjoyable for everyone but new arrangements will need some extra care. Curb the urge to be extravagant. Instead, try to get good value for your money. Keep reminding yourself you don`t have to spend a lot to have fun. Put yourself on a budget.

Nervous strain is more than likely – especially midweek. It would be advisable to be careful about what you eat and drink. Think of you first. You might also need extra vitamins -though obviously should take these under professional guidance. Fact is that the cosmic weather has altered and needs changed. Plans that have been in abeyance for some months should now gather momentum. They will surely push off at speed after Venus arrives in another of the air signs on Friday. Before then, it`s important that you have your house in order. Yes, tidying up and archiving should be high on your agenda. Note too that those who speak other languages could unwittingly throw a sidewinder in your direction. Take care that you understand fully what it is that they are asking for. The situation may not be as complex as first appears and so relatively easy to resolve.

Cancer
Personal theme: I feel!!
Water & cardinal sign: June 21 — July 22

Your horoscope for this week:

While you`re by no means a control freak, allowing decisions to be taken out of your hands won`t be easy. Exciting as certain developments are, ordinarily you`d want a say in arrangements. However, the more you learn, the more relieved you are that those who`ve broader experience with such matters are dealing with them. Later, when the dust begins to settle, you`ll get more involved.

If you have any doubts about a joint arrangement, take some time now to weigh up your options. It might cause someone inconvenience but it isn`t too late to change your mind. Don`t be swayed by emotional blackmail. Use your head and then any decision you make will be through reason and analysis. Being busy makes you feel your work is of value both at home and at work. Just be sure not to ignore your partner or your children`s feelings in your determination to get things done.

Yours is not one of the Mutable signs of the Zodiac so you don`t necessarily have a reputation for mastering multitasking. Yet that could be your challenge this week. It may be that you have been left mopping up after a partner or close colleague. Perhaps their lives are taking off at such a pace that you take on the role of personal assistant. It`s imperative – especially around the Last Quarter Moon on Thursday, – that you make time for you and relaxation. It might also help to take time on Friday to agree how tasks will be distributed next week. Given that there is so much excitement in the air (and not necessarily to do with end of year festivities), you could easily find yourself overstretched. Hopefully however you`ll have backup support from a Scorpio who, without saying anything, knows exactly what you need and provides it.

Leo
Personal theme: I will!!
Fire & fixed sign: July 23 — August 22

Your horoscope for this week:

This hardly seems the ideal time to be rethinking practical arrangements. While it`s true, these aren`t urgent, what you learn from dealing with these prepares you for exciting, if sudden, ideas and offers as appealing as they are overwhelming. Those around you benefit from having timely facts, experience and ideas. Seek their advice, knowing even if you don`t take it, their insights will be amazingly helpful.

You`re about to take on new commitments but have you really thought about it? Accepting a new assignment on top of what you already do could be more trouble than it`s worth. Besides, you won`t be able to stretch time to fit in extra responsibilities. There`s a limit to what you can do and rushing things won`t make it any easier. It`s not a good idea to cut corners, pull strings or ignore rules and regulations. Play it by the book. Your work is being monitored.

It might be as well to anticipate being sidewinded by others and carried along on the waves of their enthusiasm. Once again property issues could be raised. Yes, there is the issue of valuations and what is acceptable and what is too far-fetched.. Negotiations should take an interesting twist before the weekend as Venus moves into your opposite sign. Self-investment too should be considered. Whilst agreed, this is gift shopping time of year, it may be that there is an item or service that you could treat yourself to and which might even be regarded as tax allowable. Friends born under the Air signs of Gemini, Libra or Aquarius could come up with plans for 2020 which, though taking your career off in fresh direction, have decided possibilities.

Virgo
Personal theme: I analyse!!
Earth sign: August 23 — September 22

Your horoscope for this week:

With both your ruler Mercury and the Sun accenting your domestic or working life for some weeks, you`ve dealt with a great deal but, even more, gained insights about practical matters and, even more, the quirks of certain individuals. While, only days ago, this seemed merely interesting, sudden events will prove just how crucial facts you`ve regarded as unimportant will be in the long run..

Someone keeps making the same mistakes. It isn`t a good idea to take responsibility for things that aren`t your fault. How many times do you find yourself apologising in place of the real culprit? Break out of this habit and break free from people who take your help for granted. Romantic developments make you feel as if you`re walking on air. You can relax with someone who adores and accepts you, warts and all. If you`re single, you`re determined to meet someone special this Christmas.

Jupiter has been moving through the risk and speculation area of your solar chart since December 3rd. It won`t conclude that transit until December 2020. So, in one sense, there`s no need to rush. Yet it may be that you feel propelled to take advantage of a singular opportunity. This though has the potential to put you under nervous strain – particularly as the Moon passes through your sign between Tuesday and Thursday. Yet you are good at asking questions. Yes, you could drive certain individuals crazy in the process. It`s arguable hat this really is essential research before you make a move soon after the Solar Eclipse on Thursday 26th. In short, branching out and developing interests looks set to have increasing appeal.

Libra
Personal theme: I balance!!
Air & cardinal sign: September 23 — October 22

Your horoscope for this week:

In late November, your ruler Venus moved to accent practical, domestic and, in some cases, professional matters. While a few situations were urgent, most were exciting and involved new ideas, pleasant encounters and possibilities for the future. Now, suddenly, it`s time to turn some into decisions. Do exactly that, knowing these arrangements can, and will, change frequently. Even more, worthwhile as these seem, there`s yet more to come.

You could learn something useful by observing from the background. Listen more, talk less and you will gain some valuable information. Your career prospects are improving and long-term plans will take an upward turn. Experimenting with new methods and ideas may not be necessary but trying a different approach to a difficult job could bring amazing results. In addition to this, the more flexible you are, the more popular you will seem to be.

You won`t be alone in thinking that you are turning over a fresh page. For the first time in many decades, Jupiter makes beautiful aspect to Uranus travelling through the other Venus-ruled sign of Taurus. This is a very different vibration. You may now be thinking practically and yet extravagantly than you`ve done for some time. You might also be ready to make investment. Yes, on the one hand it could be argued that this will be a superb time for shopping (gift or otherwise): it might also be that by the time the Moon reaches your sign on Thursday 19th, that you will be ready to invest in a hobby which until now has been out of reach in both time and financial terms. In all this you may be encouraged by someone born under Sagittarius who senses that you need to widen your horizons and yes, expand your knowledge.

Scorpio & Ophiuchus
Personal theme: I desire!!
Water & fixed signs: October 23 — November 21

Your horoscope for this week:

Although occasionally you`re impulsive in matters of the heart, the practical or financial side of life is something else. You`ll ask questions and get to know the facts and people involved before committing. Yet now, between the current swift pace and your own desire to get things settled, you`re being unusually easy-going. This is perfect timing. The more flexible your thinking, and willingness to take chances, the better.

Does it feel as if the spark has gone out of your life or relationships? If so, this would be a good time to take steps to reclaim it. Accept festive invitations. Throw a big party of your own and invite all your friends. Increase your links with others and improve your surroundings by adding decorative touches to your place. Do whatever you can to treat yourself. A little of what you fancy will do you the world of good.

It`s probable that your insightfulness has been commented upon on many times over since Mars entered your sign mid-November and entirely possible that in this coming week those comments will be made again and again. Whereas yes, there are times when you keep thoughts to yourself, it is equally true that you have a gift for making punchy and forensic remarks at exactly the right moment. Your understanding of why certain individuals are acting as they are and recognising their fears (possibly because they`re waiting for results of some kind), could make a real difference to working relationships generally. You might also sense that though certain people – most likely born under either Cancer or Capricorn – are resisting change, that accepting the inevitable would be in their long-term best interest.

Sagittarius
Personal theme: I see!!
Fire sign: November 22 — December 21

Your horoscope for this week:

The link between your ruler Jupiter and inventive Uranus, on Sunday the 15th, is both powerful and unsettling. True, decisions could be out of your hands or opportunities could change your life overnight. Understandably, those around you will say you really must get the facts. However, with things moving so swiftly, you`ll probably need to say yes first, and deal with the details later.

Trying to juggle your finances is causing you anxiety. It might feel as if you`re constantly having to rob Peter to pay Paul. Taking a responsible attitude towards money should be your first priority. A financial advisor will help you develop a strategy to ensure financial stability in the future. You have a strong need for friendship. Join a club. Seek out new faces and visit glamorous places. Introduce yourself to strangers.

It would be understandable if you felt constrained and not just by the financial demands of this time of year. Fact is that the slow build-up of planets in neighbouring Capricorn – though obviously affecting all signs, – may have left you feeling undermined and reduced natural optimism. The good news is that your ruling planet, Jupiter, makes fabulous aspect with Neptune on Friday 20th (Venus day) and just as that planet changes signs and as the Moon passes through one of the Venus- ruled signs. It`s quite possible that an alliance could be forged. As they say, a problem shared is a problem halved. In joining forces, you could also see the way to moving your career to a different platform in 2020 but yes, the practical steps to achieving this could take some months yet.

Capricorn
Personal theme: I use!!
Earth & cardinal sign: December 22 — January 19

Your horoscope for this week:

Every once in a while, a planetary encounter is so powerful that stunning events, offers or alliances are inevitable. The only real question is how these will appear and whether you`ll recognise them immediately or insist on gathering the facts. Whatever the case, within days you`ll be so excited about what`s happening, you`ll say yes first, and discuss your concerns and the details later.

Keeping your feelings to yourself is putting pressure on your relationships. Only saying things people want to hear means you aren`t being honest with them or yourself. Something is upsetting you and you need to get it out into the open. If you`re tactful, this shouldn`t have too detrimental an effect on your friendships. Making headway with joint projects and plans for the future is possible but only if you`re willing to use your contacts to help further your goals. You can`t do everything, alone.

It`s probable that others are waiting for you to make up your mind. Opportunities may have presented causing you to think deep and hard about your long-term goals. Note that there is a solar eclipse in your sign on 26th. Though clearly much depends on your personal chart, there`s high probability that over the course of the next 6 to 8 weeks you will indeed alter career direction. This may include joining forces with someone branching out into a new field altogether and be a plan that carries momentum from Friday 20th. As is well known, those of your sign practice prudence and caution. No one expects you to move quickly. Indeed, if someone born under one of the Fire signs of Aries, Leo or Sagittarius pushes you too hard, they could lose this deal altogether.

Aquarius
Personal theme: I know!!
Air & fixed sign: January 20 — February 18

Your horoscope for this week:

Life isn`t just good, what`s least expected and, possibly, most disruptive could be a turning point. These offers, ideas or encounters are triggered by the rare alliance between bountiful Jupiter and your ruler Uranus on Sunday 15 December. While some will be immediately recognisable, until you learn more, others could seem a nuisance. Explore them all. You`ll soon discover the reason why.

Your efforts will be praised by a boss, manager or supervisor. This is all the inspiration you need to begin an exciting project. Work doesn`t have to be a hardship when you enjoy what you do and winning the approval of an influential person will put you in line for a promotion. What sounds like a solid investment opportunity will seem like a thoughtless mistake in time to come. There`s nothing certain about anything that involves even a small amount of risk.

By the time that Venus arrives in your sign on Friday momentum could be such that you are propelled in an exciting career direction. Yes, it is also true that you might be involved in the mopping up exercise of a long-term project before this new one can get underway. Even so, and even if momentarily, you could be excited about prospects. It should be apparent that these will give you the freedom to get more involved. Note that there is a slow a long build-up of planets in neighbouring Capricorn. This doesn`t dissipate for many months yet; and yes, as a result you could feel restricted by rules and regulations. Yet those of your sign know that these can be bent and changed over time. A strong possibility is that what`s on offer in 2020 will require you to do just that.

Pisces
Personal theme: I believe!!
Water sign: February 19 — March 20

Your horoscope for this week:

Sensing that events would trigger powerful shifts in your life, world and activities is one thing. However, events are bringing major shifts into the circumstances of others, too. While you`re not surprised by these, certain individuals are; and, bizarrely, they seem to expect you to alter the pace of, if not halt, changes. Explain, politely but firmly, this up to destiny, not you. Then busy yourself elsewhere.

Someone you don`t like will turn up unexpectedly at a Christmas party. Spend a little time with them to be polite then make your excuses and go somewhere else. This same advice applies when visitors overstay their welcome. Let them know you have to be elsewhere. Someone is arranging a family get together and you might take this opportunity to clear up a misunderstanding that recently occurred. Be the first to extend an olive branch.

Your two ruling planets, Jupiter and Neptune, will be a fifth of the cycle apart on Friday 20th. This is a fabulous aspect and if tuned into, you should see your creativity reach extraordinary height. If involved in any kind of presentation this is where you could truly excel. Yes, in the first part of the week you may need to focus on practicalities and perhaps think carefully about language and the presentation of words. Choosing a font could be preoccupying. Yet by the Last Quarter Moon on 19th in your opposite sign, it is probable that others will look to you for that final touch of magic. If they`ve managed to deal with practicalities, then perhaps they now need your magic touch to make an advert or technical document as compelling as can be.
