Here we have the Sagittarius born on the cusp of Capricorn, which makes for a more serious, determined-to-get-ahead type of personality.
The usually happy-go-lucky Sagittarius born this week will take on a stern, in-charge persona.
There will still be the jolly, outgoing and freedom-loving Sagittarius but there will be times of serious meditation on getting ahead and being in charge, which is often missing in the earlier born Sagittarius.
The fun-and-games type will be taken over by the “I want to be in charge” Capricorn. With this combination we will find a wonderful friend and lover who wants to be in charge, but yet will have plenty of fun.
So find yourself a Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius born this week and you will have a leader willing to let down the bars once in a while and have a good time.
People born this week: Ellen Burstyn, Dec. 7, 1932; Nicki Minaj, Dec. 8, 1984; Kirk Douglas, Dec. 9, 1916; Bobby Flay, Dec. 10, 1964; John Kerry, Dec. 11, 1943; Frank Sinatra, Dec. 12, 1915; Taylor Swift, Dec. 13, 1989; and Lee Remick, Dec. 14, 1935.
The best day this week to get new projects under way or start a new romance or whatever you have the mindset to do would be Thursday, Dec. 13. This is the day of the new moon, the sun and moon will be conjunct in Sagittarius, plus the moon will make a nice aspect to Neptune.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) This week Uranus will be strong in Aries pushing you into either action or boredom. The choice is yours. To use this energy in the most productive way, think of a new project and get it started. You can‘t miss and the alternative is another dull period.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) You can’t miss a good time now if you just pull things together and listen to your inner self. Take the step you have been talking about and act on it. A good pal could want to come along for the ride, but look back at your history and remember. Then you will make a move alone.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Don’t look back. Keep moving forward and don’t let emotional stories get hold of you and ruin your chances of moving forward both at home and work. The only thing standing in your way now is the lack of organization. The answer would be to get organized.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) The new moon on Thursday offers you a great opportunity to begin a new way of life. So get yourself ready and willing to move on and don’t look around. Just close your eyes, know you will be successful and take control. You will love the new you.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) With Mercury and Venus in Scorpio be wise and avoid negative romantic encounters right now because they may be more of a challenge then they are worth. Spend time moving yourself into a new routine that will be more demanding, yet rewarding.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Sometimes we don’t pay attention to lessons we should have learned long ago, and we are forced to repeat. Try paying a little more attention to your own needs and less to others. Once you learn that lesson, you will be much happier with yourself.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) Your jam-packed holiday schedule should also include some alone time. This will give you time to understand yourself and your needs, which you sometimes ignore. A new pal will try and remind you. So make it your responsibility to listen.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) Be aware. The more you push yourself, the less time you have alone. You need a little time alone to discover what it is you really want to do with your life. Let family ties come first and all else will follow for you happiness.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) With Venus about to move into Sagittarius your romantic nature will be looking for a new BFF. With that idea in mind, it might be wise to gear yourself up for some together time. This mean you will have to let some of your single projects go.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Your giving and sharing nature will come to light now and you will find yourself in the middle of a good time. Give some time and energy to the people who need it most. You will be paid back tenfold in the near future.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) An early Aquarian has Saturn to deal with, which is responsibility. A late one has Neptune, which is confusion. So if you feel some upset now it is normal. Just try moving along and doing good deeds. In that way you win.
Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) You may be going against what others feel you should do, but take responsibility and you will be fine. This is a daydreaming time and you are really good at dreaming. So do your share and help others do their share. It will work out well.
