2 Times the Lunar Energy
The Gemini moon doubles up on the lunar energy to give us gusto in the last hours of the year. The twins are known to boost our interest in all things trendy, social and fun, so you can expect the end-of-the-year festivities to start early. The resolutions will be lighthearted, if they happen at all. Many are just looking for a party.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You want to help, but you also realize that people might need to take things as far as they can on their own first. You don't want to rob anyone of the chance at the kind of confidence that only autonomy can bring.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Shakespeare suggested, "Assume a virtue, if you have it not." Dare to enact the virtue you seek today and you just may wind up with it by the end of the day.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you found out that the whole world was made for you, would that change the way you enjoyed it? Maybe it was; maybe it wasn't. But there are certainly pleasures around you that are not to be missed.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll finish the job you started to the very best of your ability, impediments notwithstanding. Most of them will in fact back down (even the inanimate ones), as if they realize that you're coming forward regardless.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You're ready to follow advice, even though it may lead you far out of your way and take a great deal of effort. Well, you can't argue with success. And a proven success formula is something to adhere to as closely as possible.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). People who talk about what kind of person they are may as well be waving a red flag in your face. Usually just about everyone is the opposite of what they proclaim, at least some of the time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Casual conversation will lead you to realize that you have stories you haven't quite learned how to tell yet, but you're getting better and better at it. In fact, you're downright entertaining tonight.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The people who make you want to put on your cool clothes, say your clever lines, behave as the best version of you -- those are the ones to keep around. You're about to step up your game like crazy.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It won't pay to be too picky in matters of food or entertainment, but you can certainly afford to be picky in some matters this weekend -- love, for one. You'll only be better off for being very selective in matters of romance.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Before you do what you planned, consider that your day could go a few different ways. What if your favorite person was the one who was looking out for you? What would this person tell you to do?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You know free spirits, and you know people who have lived in the same place for decades if not a lifetime. You have something to learn from both these extremes now, as you experiment with your ideas about home.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Life seems to be moving quickly, and it's why you will take many pictures. Also, your artistic eye is keen now, and you notice the pretty things, the unusual things and things that you're not likely to capture on any other day.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 30). Your needs collide with those of another, and together you'll create impressive momentum in the next six weeks. January brings beauty you couldn't have planned if you'd tried. Friends will surprise you in March. Excellent publicity will help you expand your influence as well as your financial reach. Aries and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 39, 4, 14, 47 and 28.
SHOULD AULD ACQUAINTANCE BE FORGOT? Yes, some should. Also, there are habits, sayings, tendencies and more that would best be heaped on the rubbish pile of the old year. What would you do well to leave behind? ARIES and SAGITTARIUS: Your taste is amazing, but sometimes you choose the generic route to satisfy the expectations of others. In the new year, instead of meeting expectations, challenge them. You'll have more fun, and others will love it! GEMINI, CAPRICORN and AQUARIUS: You're not doing anyone a favor by neglecting your true talents while you tend to business that a highly responsible monkey could do. Make this the year you become great at delegating! CANCER and TAURUS: The word "should" does have its place, but often it's used to negate reality and judge yourself and others by random standards that may not really apply. Life is just better without many "shoulds." SCORPIO and PISCES: Water signs thrive when they favor their gut feelings. Inner guidance can be illogical, but for these highly intuitive signs, it would be foolish to ignore it. Use your psychic ability to help yourself. LEO and VIRGO, LIBRA and SAGITTARIUS: Resist arguing politics with family. There's no sense in ruining relationships by sharing too many opinions.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: With a unique voice and style all her own, Ellie Goulding sweeps the pop charts -- and she's never had a voice lesson! With her sun, moon, Mercury and Neptune all in Capricorn, the sign of social standing, it's not surprising that she was the royal choice to sing at the reception for the wedding of Prince William to Catherine Middleton back in 2011.
