Tip of the Week:
Jupiter re-entering Aries on December 20 and Winter Solstice on December 21/22, depending on your time zone, are the big stories now. This combination of events will have a strong activating effect. Important decisions brewing in the background will become more evident as they are shifted into high gear. As Jupiter enters Aries, it will yield the position of planet of highest degree, which it has held for a couple of months, to the Sun for a very brief day or two, which will then pass it back to Pluto in Capricorn. The result of this is that the year-end, encompassing Christmas and other cultural celebrations, will have to contend with an otherwise sobering impulse of authoritarianism. Rebels and revolutionaries will struggle to counter this impulse and some will prove effective, yet the next major phase of social, political and economic change will be activated. So, between the powers that be and the rebels destined to vigilantly assert their views and actions to intercept casual executions they deem corrupt, the beat and temp are about to spike on the graph!

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
You may be accurately understood as a practical philosopher. In other words, meaning really only has value where there is some actual benefit that can be experienced.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
The Sun in your sign has likely had the effect of boosting your confidence levels. However, you may have and continue still to deal with various complexities on relationship fronts.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Hopefully you have enjoyed a bit of rest and respite over the past few weeks. If not, there may still be time.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

This cycle will continue for some weeks, actually, and will deepen yet. Accept this influence as an opportunity to retreat and fill your inner peace tanks.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
The time is right to get the earned attention you want and feel you deserve. Jupiter in your sign has helped by increasing your confidence levels and the time is right to take more deliberate action.
