Sagittarius Nov 23-Dec 21

If you are jug­gling your fi­nances this Christ­mas, you can blame Saturn, which is en­ter­ing your fi­nance zone for the first time in 29 years. The world’s economies are set for a re­al­ity check, so cur­rency ex­change rates may af­fect you. Try to find your feet and ground your­self. If you feel your sit­u­a­tion has be­come too com­plex, look for a sim­pler way of man­ag­ing things. The more work you can do on this now, the eas­ier 2018 will be for you.

Capricorn ● Dec 22-Jan 20

Your rul­ing planet, Saturn, is chang­ing signs in a 29-year cy­cle, so this will be an un­usual Christ­mas when you may want to be alone. Peo­ple look for a spir­i­tual mes­sage at this time of year and you are no ex­cep­tion. As 2017 ends, you may need to take time out to be by your­self so you can re­flect on the year that has gone, be­fore you face the year to come. If your in­stinct tells you to go on a re­treat, travel alone or even refuse in­vi­ta­tions, then lis­ten to your gut feel­ings. You can re­turn to the real world when you’re ready.

Aquarius ● Jan 21-Feb 19

Your rul­ing planet, Uranus, is a sym­bol of free­dom, in­de­pen­dence and lib­erty. This month you are at the early stages of a new cy­cle when you can plan to travel or move, even if it’s a long-term plan. It is pos­si­ble that you could make a sud­den break with the past and set your­self free within days of read­ing this, but do not pres­sure your­self if you need more time. The most im­por­tant thing to re­mem­ber is that ev­ery es­cape plan needs a good strat­egy and if you take this in care­ful steps, you can turn the key in the lock.

Pisces ● Feb 20-Mar 20

A spe­cial plan or idea needs to be planted so it can grow. Pisces, you are at the early stages of an ex­cit­ing new cy­cle when an im­por­tant project could grow in new di­rec­tions not pre­vi­ously pos­si­ble in your life­time. It is also pos­si­ble that this con­cept be­longs to some­one else who is un­sure of the next step. You can help, and from

May 2018 you could in­no­vate and in­vent, us­ing the lat­est in­ter­net or smart­phone launches to help. Much de­pends on good com­mu­ni­ca­tion from the start. Be­yond the ac­tual idea, you must both be on the same page.

Aries ● Mar 21-Apr 21

Your fam­ily will be at the heart of long over­due change this Christ­mas. One side of your fam­ily tree in par­tic­u­lar will be af­fected by the full moon, which makes it nec­es­sary for every­one to adapt and ad­just. If the pace is too fast, or peo­ple are not tak­ing feel­ings into ac­count, now is the time to take ac­tion. While every­one would agree that it is time for the past to be put to one side, it is also true that peo­ple find it eas­ier to make changes when the pace is more com­fort­able. A male in your fam­ily may need to know this.

Taurus ● Apr 22-May 21

The group, team or other cir­cle of peo­ple that af­fects your life most will reach a cross­roads now. To­gether you can use peo­ple power to achieve im­pres­sive re­sults. Un­less you all co-op­er­ate closely, though, the group may scat­ter, or an im­por­tant chance may be missed. You all have sim­i­lar ideas and opin­ions, but you may find that com­mu­ni­ca­tion is miss­ing as De­cem­ber be­gins. You can turn things around by pulling peo­ple to­gether, but you must all agree on your des­ti­na­tion. Un­less this hap­pens, Taurus, the group’s fu­ture is in some doubt in 2018.

Gemini ● May 22-Jun 22

Christ­mas al­lows you to see just how many pre­cious re­la­tion­ships and friend­ships you have to sup­port you. Ev­ery in­vi­ta­tion and card will show you how ap­pre­ci­ated you are. Team Gemini re­ally is be­hind you now and as you have earned it, en­joy it. The only is­sue is look­ing af­ter each per­son in turn, as your per­sonal life does need main­te­nance. It is easy to take peo­ple for granted when life is good, but one spe­cial in­di­vid­ual in your cir­cle does need at­ten­tion. He or she is at a cross­roads and it is im­por­tant that you see it.

Cancer ● Jun 23-Jul 23

You are al­most at the end of a health and well­be­ing cy­cle which

in­volves the planet Saturn and all its chal­lenges. The is­sue may be the cost of treat­ment or in­surance, too. It is time to look at the way you feel men­tally as well as phys­i­cally. This cy­cle, which can only oc­cur ev­ery three decades, ends in weeks, but you need an ac­tion plan now. If you have fallen into an at­ti­tude which is un­help­ful, re­place it with a more pos­i­tive frame of mind. Find out what has worked for other peo­ple in your sit­u­a­tion and try it.

Leo ● Jul 24-Aug 23

Your fam­ily tree is the fo­cus this Christ­mas. The leaves and branches which have fallen, as well as the rel­a­tives who are here now, bring im­por­tant de­ci­sions. Progress is pos­si­ble for ev­ery­body, from young to old, as Jupiter – the planet of op­por­tu­ni­ties – af­fects your horo­scope. This cy­cle can only oc­cur ev­ery 12 years and it will help you see your clan in a new light. What have you in­her­ited from th­ese peo­ple and what can you pass on? The legacy you deal with now may be fi­nan­cial, but it may also be spir­i­tual and just as im­por­tant.

Virgo ● Aug 24-Sept 23

One re­la­tion­ship more than any other will dom­i­nate at Christ­mas but you may need to ac­cept its quirks too. You have some­thing pre­cious to en­joy now, but it may not fit any nor­mal cat­e­gory. This un­con­ven­tional per­son or sit­u­a­tion is still valu­able, even though you may wish you had an in­struc­tion book! You may need to ex­plore and ex­per­i­ment fur­ther in or­der to find out what this in­trigu­ing per­son has to give you. Virgo is an earth sign, though, and you need to put both feet on the ground be­fore you can start the search.

Libra ● Sep 24-Oct 23

You are in the best fi­nan­cial cy­cle in 12 years, Libra, and Christ­mas will bring a sub­stan­tial bonus, pay in­crease, set­tle­ment, do­na­tion, prize, in­her­i­tance or gift. You may be giv­ing or re­ceiv­ing, but a gen­er­ous ges­ture will make an enor­mous dif­fer­ence to the re­la­tion­ship on both sides. There may be a le­gal mat­ter in­volved, or just the prin­ci­ple of fair­ness. Libra rules the scales, as you know, and no mat­ter how much is paid out, bal­ance will be re­stored to a lop­sided sit­u­a­tion. Jus­tice will be done and that mat­ters as much as the money.

Scorpio ● Oct 24-Nov 22

The re­la­tion­ship you share with your for­mer, cur­rent or po­ten­tial part­ner dom­i­nates the month of De­cem­ber. You will both find a way to com­pro­mise, as even though you are very dif­fer­ent peo­ple, the time has come for you to strike an emo­tional deal. Some Scorpio peo­ple will rec­on­cile or pro­pose. In other cases, a sep­a­ra­tion or di­vorce can be fi­nalised. The words that are spo­ken or writ­ten in an email will mat­ter less than the soul’s silent mes­sage. You are able to read the other per­son’s heart, as well as his or her mind, and thereby reach an im­por­tant agree­ment.
