Happy Birthday Sagit­tarius! Anyone born this week is born on the cusp of Sagittarius and Capricorn. This puts two totally different energies, fire and earth, into combat for one persona.

So naturally you have a complex, but extremely tantalizing individual fighting for power.

The person born this week is competitive, freedom-loving and lovingly vibrant. They will light up a room with the glorious energy of Sagittarius and the deep competitive nature of the Capricorn.

Then you have one wild perfectionist who loves winning at any price and is always looking for the prize as best in the show.

You hook up with someone born this week and you know you have a prizewinner. All you need to do is try and keep up with them – and that is no easy job.

People who have or are celebrating birthdays this week: Jamie Foxx, Dec. 13, 1967; Lee Remick, Dec. 14, 1935; Don Johnson, Dec. 15, 1949; Noel Coward, Dec. 16, 1899; Bradley Manning, (leaked material to Wikileaks), Dec. 17, 1987; Keith Richards, Dec. 18, 1943; Jake Gyllenhaal, Dec. 19, 1980; and Billy Bragg, Dec. 20, 1957.

We are involved in the atmosphere of the full moon, which happens on Tuesday when the moon is in Cancer. This means we will all be feeling the emotions of the time. So, watch out or you will find yourself in the middle of a debate, which you won’t win.

Best shopping day will be the day after the full moon, which is Wednesday. Of course, if you love impulsive shopping, then shop on Monday.


Aries (March 21 to April 20) If you have a big dream and want to start to make it happen, the time has arrived. You should have the time, energy and command to accomplish what you want. Just remember that the only thing that usually stands in your way is the chaos which you somehow attract. So watch out since there is plenty of that energy floating around to lure you into chaos.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) The need this week is to hook into some really fresh ideas. That is what is going to get you where you want to go. Spread your wings and take a trip or join in a new circle of friends. Do something this week to expand your horizons and you will see the pay off fast. You need to let go of the past.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Start expecting some luck that could bring you to the place you have always wanted to be in the business world. The opportunities will be knocking on your door. All you need to do is recognize them. If you get a chance to do more in the world of communication, then give it serious consideration. You should be on a roll now.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) It would be smart not to get caught up with expectations, because nothing you expect will be as good and as wild as the action of Mars. Mars in Libra is in charge of the excitement in your life now. So the best way to handle the new adventures headed your way is to enjoy. The more you accept instead of expect, the happier your life will be.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Your patience may be tested this week, but under no circumstances should you give up. Try forcing yourself to get out on the party scene more often and meet new people who can help you find your way. It is time to turn over a new leaf and seek a new stage to play on. Once you do that, you will enjoy a totally new personal environment.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Reflecting on the events of the past week should bring a smile to your face. With so many new ventures lined up now, it might be time to consider your next adventure. An old pal could become much more than a buddy if you are just patient and let life happen. With Mars now out of Virgo and into Libra, life will slow a little for the better.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) You are now under the influence of Mars in Libra so you can expect some excitement. New pals, goals and opportunities will come your way. There also will be arguments unless you watch yourself. A new love in the form of an obsession could also enter your life and create real adventure. So stay alert and enjoy.

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) If you are taking on more responsibility then you are headed in the right direction. You are in a time frame when your life should involve more structure – but don’t play serious games without a plan. The more you can outline your future needs –whether it is a lover, new job or more rest – it is smart to have an agenda so you can see the final goal.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) The adjustments you have allowed in your life recently are going to really pay off. After all, if you had followed your original plans, you would be one really sad soul now. So, as you start on this latest venture, know you are headed in the right direction. Remember when we push only our own cause we end up happy with the results.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) If you are now trying to make some adjustments in your life, that is good. It is the perfect time to seriously consider going in another direction. Your old style is no longer working so it is time to let it go. Once you do that your entire outlook on your life will change. Look for a relationship to really blossom.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) Once you get over your need to fix everyone else’s problems, you will have a much happier and fuller life. So, give yourself a present and stop trying to cure the ills of the world and concentrate on yourself. You will find a much more rewarding lifestyle if you are able to accomplish that little problem.

Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) Once again your creative life will take a top spot in your life, plus a new relationship could be just what you need right now. So, try accepting party invites and meet as many new folks as you can. One of them could be very helpful to you in the future. After all, the more people you know the more doors will open for you and your work.
