Today’s Horoscope: Thursday, December 25, 2008

Capricorn December 22 – January 19
The phrase for Christmas in late old English is Cristes Maesse. The story of Christmas with all the images of angels and a young mother, of shepherds and a stable, of wise men and royal intrigue, makes the season captivating. Your word for today is to have a merry good time. Try: singing “Santa, Baby.”

Aquarius January 20 – February 18
The American version of the Santa Claus figure received its inspiration and its name from the Dutch legend of Sinter Klaas, brought by settlers to New York in the 17th century. As early as 1773, the name appeared in the American press as “St. A Claus,” but it was the popular author Washington Irving who gave Americans their first detailed information about the Dutch version of Saint Nicholas. Happy holidays. Try: singing “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.”

Pisces February 19 – March 20
Hey, Rudolph, did you know that Ancient Norse mythology tells of the legend of Thor, the God of Thunder? Thor was known to fly through the stormy skies pulled in a chariot by magical goats named Gnasher and Cracker. Every day is a learning experience – especially today. Try: singing “The First Noel.”

Aries March 21 – April 19
Enjoy all the trappings that come your way today. You may not have gotten everything you wanted, but it was enough for you to know that you are loved. Have a very Merry Christmas, and remember that giving is better than receiving. Just ask Amazon – they are offering 25 days of free Christmas MP3 downloads for a limited time. Try: singing “Silent Night.”

Taurus April 20 – May 20
Some history buffs claim that Christmas dates back more than 4,000 years. That would be right around the time that the Mesopotamians were walking the earth. They believed that Marduk, their chief god, would battle the monsters of chaos, and to assist Marduk they would hold a festival for 12 days until the New Year. Today, be happy, keep focusing on what you have rather than what you want. Try: singing “Jingle-Bell Rock.”

Gemini May 21 – June 21
Legend has it that the history of Santa Claus began with a man called Saint Nicholas, the Bishop of Myra in Asia Minor (today think: Turkey). Old Saint Nicholas was known for his charity and his wisdom. He was a modern-day Robin Hood who gave away all his money to the poor. Of course, there is more to the story, but for now just know that Santa comes in all shapes, forms, sizes and colors. Try: singing “Feliz Navidad.”

Cancer June 22 – July 22
On December 25, 1951, King George VI delivered his final Christmas address to the British Commonwealth. He wished for peace on earth. Today, let’s make that happen. Take the gifts you’ve received and the gifts you’ve given and call it even. If you do that, peace will reign in your home. Try: singing “Winter Song.”

Leo July 23 – August 22
Some ancient people believed that the sun was a god, and that winter came every year because the sun god had become sick and weak. Evergreen boughs reminded them of all the green plants that would grow again when the sun god was strong and spring returned. Find some mistletoe and get busy. Try: singing “Someday at Christmas.”

Virgo August 23 – September 22
Ever wonder where Christmas traditions (as we know them) came from? The traditions are a Victorian invention of the 1860s. Probably the most celebrated holiday in the world, the Christmas we’re familiar with is a product of hundreds of years of secular and religious traditions around the globe. Enjoy the festivities today. Try: singing “Frosty the Snowman.”

Libra September 23 – October 22
Christmas or Christmastide is celebrated each year on the 25th of December to mark and honor the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. The custom of the holiday includes attending church, giving gifts and displaying decorations inside and outside the home. Take a walk around your neighborhood to see your neighbors at their best. Try: singing “O Come, All Ye Faithful.”

Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Christmas is a time to give and share with those we love; a time for laughter and celebrating the joys in our life. It’s a time to decorate packages and trees. But mostly it’s a time for love. Give those around you the greatest gift ever – your unconditional love. Try: singing “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Did you know that there are two North Poles located in the Arctic? You have the geographic North Pole, which is the northernmost point on the earth’s surface. And then there’s the magnetic North Pole, which traditional magnetic compasses point toward. Learning will become essential today. Try: singing “Silver Bells.”
