Horoscope for the week of December 19, 2004

19 December 2004

Tip of the Week:

This is the date that the elves start packing Santa's sleds each year. With Mercury retrograde until tomorrow, December 20, there could be a few delays and miscommunications to settle. This late hour countdown aside, Tuesday December 21 marks the annual Winter Solstice. This is the day that the Sun seems to 'stand still' (solstice).

On this day, the decreasing hours and minutes of daylight begin their 6 month return to maximum hours of sunlight culminating at Summer Solstice. Great Helios giver of light and life, we sing your praise. Is it coincidence that the celebrated birth of Jesus the Christ is just four days after solstice? Just four days – one for each element: Fire, Earth, Air and Water! Star light, star bright, O sacred star that guided Astrologer Kings to Bethlehem one night! Giving and receiving gifts is a fun way to celebrate the truth, the light and the way and give thanks for the giver of light and life, our holy Sun. Starlight, star bright, praise and glory to the Sun's light, praise and glory to the light, O Holy Light!

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

With so much color and lights and festivity in the air, you feel excited and creative too. Parties and other cultural activities are reason to give cheer. Even though deeper questions about identity, status and standing in the world rumble below, you can get out of your own mind and get into the glow. Hopefully, you can tend to the serious business later. To be fully in the moment, be grateful for the life you live as it is now and for the colors of the lights.

Taurus (Apr 21 – May 20)

Oh peace loving soul of the pasture, give to this hour a special gesture of passionate love. Slow, sultry movements foretell the tale of your desire. Yet tell me how oh earthbound one, how can all these things be naught but a dream? Yes a dream you say, but a great dream wrought by gods and angels!? What's that you say: we are as angels yet with hooves and cloven foot and of other such body parts? It sounds like your angel is a blend of devil. What a sensual delight!

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)

The excitement of the season with its many twinkling lights is a delight to your senses. Gatherings with family, friends and the one you love are keeping you busy and happy now. A process of letting go of control to go with the flow will require imagination and effort. As the Moon enters the first quarter, you are decisive and determined to share your truth with zeal yet also grace and friendship. Breathe deeply, laugh and sing to see the bigger picture in color with lights.

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 21)

This favourite time of year for so many families finds you in a festive mood. Spirits are up and spiking the eggnog as well. Bells jingling and a ringa linging remind you of Santa's sled and reindeer and the Salvation Army. Some tensions may brew and reactions fly, as can happen when families reunite. Keep judgments aside and avoid any fights. Choose to be happy these days and these nights. This time is precious; this time of bright lights.

Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 22)

Yours is the brightest star in the sky, as bright as the clear light of day. Our Sun is a great son of even greater Suns, Parent of a family of planets. One of which hosts many species of families. Yet, one among them feels compelled to control all the others. And this is even often so within every human species family. This one they say is the sign of the Sun. Do you know any such one? This is the hour to surrender the power to the solar lord of lights.

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 21)

How does that song go again, ch, ch, ch, changes! How could you see it coming, with all the snow and the fog? Surprise! You never know where you might go. Abundance and dreams are the theme of the song so sing along. Que sera, sera serenades amidst your list of gifts and intentions. Ah the mystery and the reverie of yet another twist in the tale. Your quest for power, opportunity and wealth will continue beyond this fortnight so relax and remember your essence is light.

Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 21)

Exploring new horizons, beliefs, perceptions and options finds you making a list and checking it twice. Above all else, you want a clear sense of identity and direction to guide you through to more abundant, happy and creative times. Prepare for a ride with some bumpy corners and twists over the next several weeks. Intend to keep both eyes open, hold on with both hands and laugh a lot. If you enter any tunnels, just remember that at the end there is always a light.

Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)

What do you believe and who do you love. These and other such questions are falling like snow flakes into your mind. The riddle that the Victorians did not understand is that in order to truly love others we must learn to truly love our self. This includes acceptance of all the wild and strange parts too. The other riddle to realize that is that blame of any kind is the sure way to give away personal power. Think from your heart and you will see in this light.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 20)

Like Dancer and Prancer and Rudolph too, you sure have been pulling your weight these days. Tackling obstacles and facing fears may be tiring, yet is making you stronger and more aware. Breaking through limiting security anchors is setting you free. Unexpected surprises on the home front are helping you to imagine a more beautiful dream. Expand your potential, you have the right, determine your star and air for that light.

Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)

In the workshop of your mind you have been scheming and dreaming. You seek goodness, justice and truth. You realize that revolutionary action is sometimes required. Hopefully you realize that the best approach is art, beauty and love. What goes around comes around and this law transcends time and space. Trust in the higher powers – the keepers of the timeless laws. Turn away from the darkness of anger, worry and spite, turn away and see the light.

Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 19)

Aquarius, your age has dawned! Intuitive genius, enlightened vision and revolutions for humanitarian dreams are some of the brighter ornaments on your tree. And the time is at hand to make such dreams a reality. Also, take time out for a while, as you feel the pull to go within. Meanwhile, sharing quality time with the one's you love will see you through the night. Be at peace amidst the hustle and bustle and the fight. Remember that above all else this time is a celebration of the divine light.

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Breaking through barriers in body and mind is liberating your soul. You now realize the authority of the higher powers that be; before you were blind and now you can see. Clearing the way for the truth to unfold means practising gratitude, just as we were told. In your heart was a spark that has now burst into flame, how could things ever be the same? Feel the power, see with clear sight, and wherever there is darkness bring forth your light.
