Horoscopes for the week of December 11-15 from Astrology.com
Aries- You’d like to be focused on helping your family right now, but work demands are exhausting all of your energy. You never thought you’d be the kind of person who puts your career over your home life — and you aren’t, in general — but this week you have to focus on a couple of crucial professional responsibilities. You will be able to get a lot done fairly early in the week, but you won’t be out of the woods just yet. Use midweek to formulate some sort of organization to your time. Speaking of the woods: this weekend you’re going to spend some time on an adventure of sorts.
Taurus- You’re feeling grounded this week — a nice feeling after so much chaos in recent weeks. And, sure, there will be some more chaos to contend with this week (a power struggle with an annoying authority figure Tuesday or Wednesday, for example), but mostly you’ll find the next seven days smooth sailing. Or, at least, calm waters. Toward the end of the week you’re going to spend a lot of quality time with friends. And over the weekend, you’re going to make a big purchase, but you’re going to take your time with it. Might as well shop around, right?
Gemini- Everything was going along just fine for a while, but on Monday and Tuesday, something has changed. You thought you had someone right by your side, but it turns out that they may have had a hidden agenda the whole time. What’s going on? Why do people have to be so complicated? Take relief in the company of your own outstanding friends midweek and don’t underestimate your ability to be persuasive and charming. Sometimes people just have to know what you want, so tell them by week’s end. On Saturday and Sunday, someone just wants the opportunity to tell you how they feel.
Cancer- On Monday, you’re all set to head out the door — you have your fishing pole, you have your boots, you have a hat on — and then you decided maybe you weren’t in the mood to go fishing after all. Ready, set, blah. It’s perfectly understandable that you’re going to be moody even on Tuesday and Wednesday, what with everything that’s going on, and your best course of action is going to be to follow your heart at every point in the road. Why do something you’re not up for? Stay at home whenever you want to this week. If you want to hibernate over the weekend, do so. This will all blow over.
Leo- When you walk into a room, all eyes are on you. There is a tremendous thrill in that, but there’s also an amount of responsibility. All eyes are on you! And everyone’s hanging on your every word! And there are those who are going to recognize your new-found popularity and feel pangs of jealousy — so you’ll have that to contend with, too. Ego clashes figure strongly on Tuesday and Wednesday, and expect the people around you to be behaving very emotionally toward the end of the week. So much drama! Thankfully, the weekend will be peaceful and rewarding.
Virgo- All that hard work? It’s finally paying off. You never thought Monday would be a banner day in the romance department, but you have people throwing bouquets of red roses at you left and right. And what’s more, you’re feeling your best physically, too. Toward the middle of the week, the sheer volume of stuff in your life is going to start to weigh on you. By the weekend, you’re going to decide that maybe it’s time to look into ways of reorganizing your things. So much clutter! How are you ever going to imagine a perfect future for yourself with you-know-who, with all this stuff in the way?
Libra- This week, you would like to keep everything in your life balanced. You like to have fun, but you also really enjoy working — especially on Monday and Tuesday. People perceive you to be the kind of person who is really grounded and centered, and those are very appealing characteristics. By midweek, it’s no surprise that you’re the object of someone’s affections — either it will be the start of a new relationship or the reinvigoration of an ongoing one. Over the weekend, if you turn your attention a little towards the romance department, and get a little caught up in it, well, good for you. Why not?
Scorpio- You are a shrewd businessperson at the beginning of this week. That’s not the role you usually like to play, but it’s the role that’s going to be handed to you, and you’re going to do well at it. Tuesday or Wednesday, something’s going to happen at home that demands immediate attention — a spill, a break, a run-in with a neighbor — but toward the end of the week you’re going to get wrapped up in a romance that causes you to forget everything else. This weekend is going to be an obstacle course of sorts. Best advice? Be careful and proceed with caution. The sidewalks are icy!
Sagittarius- Monday, you say what you mean and you mean what you say. Whatever else happens, at least that much is true. You are a straight shooter. You are a master at communication. And those skills are going to come in handy this week, especially on Wednesday, when an improbable conversation with a stranger is going to lead to a long and fairly eye-opening revelation about the size of the world and the variability of human experience. It sounds so big-minded, but it’s exactly what you’re going to think about until Friday. The weekend, however, will be all fun and games and blissful mindlessness.
Capricorn- Finally, at last, some of the glory that’s been due to you is going to come your way Monday. You aren’t the kind of person who demands recognition, but it’s certainly nice to get some after you’ve been slaving away at something forever. On the heels of this success, a lot of people are going to try to hitch themselves to your star by midweek. Be sure you don’t accommodate anyone who is going to slack off. You have the power to be selective now. You can choose whom you want with you in the next stage of things. You have your mind on the future over the weekend, and it’s exciting.
Aquarius- People are funny. As the saying goes, you give them an inch, they take a mile. And what you’re learning is, if you give them a mile, they flail around all day long not knowing what to do with themselves, especially on Monday and Tuesday. You’re not too worried. On Wednesday, you are a force of inspiration among your friends, and you have the kind of radiance that turns heads at parties. The more people you meet by Friday and over the weekend, the more connections you’ll make, and you’ll be happier than you have been in a while.
Pisces- You have friends in high places, and at the start of the week it’s time to call on one of them for a favor. You don’t ever take advantage of people, so you don’t have to worry about it being taken the wrong way, even if they don’t get back to you until midweek. Besides, all you want is for someone to put in a good word for you. In the meantime, you’ll be busy helping out all your other friends. Use the weekend to spread the love around even further, and everyone is going to be happy. Including you. Especially you.
