Today’s Horoscope: Friday, December 26, 2008
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
When Britney’s son burped during a press conference, she could have ignored it; instead, she acknowledged it and moved on. Have you ever thought about doing the same thing? Today, before you begin that same old litany of making excuses, ask yourself this: Will dealing with the issue help you become an upstanding individual, or will it hinder you in your growth? Try: giving up meat for the day.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
One has to wonder if Viggo Mortensen, who plays a German author in his latest film, Good, has ever heard the expression “look before you leap.” Like Viggo, your communication skills fall into two categories: They strengthen your cause or become the bane of your existence. Today, watch what comes out of your mouth, as not everything can be explained away. Try: drawing pictures of palm trees.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
Release the things you don’t need so that you can embrace the positive things. You are very emotional and have a tendency when your world is crooked to take up booze, drugs or any other addictive behavior that will guarantee your self-destruction (think: Amy Winehouse). When things are great, you can crank out a novel in less than 30 days. Today, make the decision that you will find a way to cut through the storm without hurting yourself. Try: walking backwards.
Aries March 21 – April 19
You are definitely a ram. You have a flair for being exacting, and many consider you a hard taskmaster, but that’s not an accurate description. You don’t care for trifling drivel. Like KISS star Gene Simmons, you believe that if you are paid to do a job well and on time, you should draw on your integrity and self-respect to complete the job. Try: rearranging your furniture.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Security. Security. Security. It appears that the more you have, the more you want, but I wouldn’t call you materialistic – you just need to feel secure. While there are those who would criticize Brad Pitt for taking on yet another lucrative promotional, you understand inherently that one can never have too much money. Money equals security in your eyes, and there’s nothing wrong with that, as long you don’t obsess over it. Try: dusting your bedroom.
Gemini May 21 – June 21
What gives? One moment, you are happy and talking to the doorman as if you and he were best friends. The next moment, you are shunning your best friend because she pissed you off. That’s you in a lump sum, changeable and moody, like a certain celebrity telling the world she’s not pregnant, and then announcing days later that she is, in fact, expecting. What can you expect? The world is in constant motion, and the ideal of stopping to take a moment and analyze your moods isn’t in the stars. Try: ice-skating.
Cancer June 22 – July 22
You love your job, but let’s face it, you probably won’t ever own the company. But it’s not from lack of trying. Money flows through your fingers as if it were water. You should exercise some control over your expenses before you, Whitney and Fantasia all end up with part-time jobs. You may receive help from a friend with a huge bank account. Try: melting snow to make ice cream.
Leo July 23 – August 22
No one can tell you what to do or even how to perform your job. You dislike interference and often do the opposite if someone offers advice. Like Victoria Beckham, who has strict rules for herself to ensure that she’s photographed perfectly each time, both of you always know what will work best, provided that you are given your way to complete the job. Try: fasting.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
You live life as reasonable person. When you love, you love, and when it goes wrong, you are able to talk yourself into believing that you knew all along how the story would end. Get over yourself. Take your lead from Gwyneth Paltrow: If want your relationship to work, then you have to do some work. Nothing can turn a relationship faster than someone making their insecurities the center of everything. Try: making a pitcher of sangria.
Libra September 23 – October 22
One day you want company and intimacy, and the next you just want to run away from the world. The stress of knowing what it is you really want places a strain on everyone in your circle. Look, let’s face it: You can either spend time talking about what coulda, shoulda, woulda happened (think: Aniston, GQ, and Brad Pitt again), or you can face reality and know that what you want and what you got are two very different things. Try: warming yourself with a hot shower.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
You love planning things. That’s not to say that you don’t go for spontaneity; you just enjoy executing the plan you created. If you had a choice, you would always create a list of things (think: Victoria Beckham) to ensure that everything would go as planned. Expect those plans of yours to head south today. Your world will be turned upside down. Try: serving breakfast in bed to someone else.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
When things are bad, you forget the joy that is present in your life every day. Let’s think for a moment about things that could help make you smile. Tim McGraw briefly considered running for governor of Tennessee. Caroline Kennedy wants to be appointed to the New York Senate. Gasoline prices are the lowest in five years. Find that joy and bring it home. Try: sticking to the rules.
