Free Daily Horoscope - December 22 2016
● General: Someone who's not quite as comfortable in the spotlight as you are may try to make you feel bad about letting your talents show. Don't let that happen. Everyone's entitled to strut their stuff every now and then, and if anyone has earned the right to do that at this particular moment in time, it's you. Why not forget about the opinions of others and go with your gut? If your antennae are telling you to alert the media, don't be shy. Alert the media!
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Listen to those who have been at your workplace or in your industry longer than you have -- yesterday's solutions are definitely still workable today.
● Finances: Your day is anything but routine. If you used to imagine what it would be like to circle the wagons, you'll finally get your chance to find out. Defending your fortune, whatever its size, is your primary focus today. Take your time and use your muscle.
● Love: There's no reason to get competitive about it, but if you were, you'd be way ahead of the pack and on your way to winning a gold medal in your favorite event: love. Now just pick up the pace and you'll break a record.
● General: Everyone has at least someone in their family who's known for being... oh, eccentric. Or maybe dramatic. At any rate, one of yours is about to call for some help. Your first impulse, of course, will be to ask them why they can't talk their way out of it, or call on one of those famous friends they're so fond of mentioning. Once you see the look on their face, though, you'll can that idea. Everyone needs help occasionally. Be benevolent.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: You will be unusually expressive and articulate, able to easily convey information as needed to the right people at the right times. Get in touch with folks you haven't seen in a while.
● Finances: You're looking forward to a bit of fun. No thoughts of money could possibly distract you, whether they're about amassing your fortune or losing your shirt. All you can think about is being with your favorite companions and enjoying a well-deserved good time.
● Love: If you find yourself smack in the middle of a not entirely comfortable romantic situation, practice your powers of mediation. With your skills put to use, everyone can get what they want -- including you.
● General: A sibling or neighbor who's not usually what you'd call needy may ask for something now, and you're feeling so darned good about recent events, you'll want to do it. Well, why not? Just don't forget about those wonderful plans you have for the evening -- which are destined to turn out not just well, but spectacularly well. Oh, and don't even try to rein in your gift of gab tonight. Your companions are expecting it.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Reel back spending as much as is prudent now. You're heading for tighter financial times, and a little saving now will give you more wiggle room when the time comes.
● Finances: Thoughts of bills swirl around your head like so much excess chatter. How you will ever deal with them all feels beyond comprehension. You'll have a better chance of getting a handle on things if you stop the inner din first. Start by telling yourself you'll manage.
● Love: The people who use 'opinionated' to mean something bad -- they're to be avoided. You can sort out the good from the bad very easily now, just by opening your mouth. Good riddance to those who can't take it.
● General: You'll end up washing, waxing and buffing out your vehicle in the driveway now -- and doing it for a good long time, too. You may also spend hours replacing buttons or meticulously wielding Krazy Glue to repair a broken ceramic wing or tail. No matter what it is, you'll put all your attention into it. Just be sure to save a teeny bit of time for the one who loves you -- who might also feel the need for a bit of your attention.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: You'll be the focus of attention in a good way. It might feel like there are two of you as you plow through work with unprecedented productivity.
● Finances: What you are doing with your money is similar to cleaning house. First, you pick everything up, then you dust, then you vacuum and then you start focusing on the tiny details. You're down to the tiny details, and yes, they count. They all add up to the overall effect of being next to Godliness.
● Love: Nesting's for the birds -- get your sweet self out and about, and don't be afraid to get yourself noticed. Showing up and showing off are in the stars.
● General: Your day can go one of two ways. It's all up to you. Either way, you'll be speaking your mind. There's no doubt about that. You can either speak it with wisdom, compassion and love, or you can lash out at someone you're absolutely sure deserves it. Fortunately, you probably have some wonderful plans for the evening, and if you spend the day preparing, there's a good chance that you'll be far too busy to get into it with anyone.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You've got a greater measure of self-control and should be able to charm even the surliest customer. Try reaching out, even under circumstances that are less than optimal.
● Finances: You're ready to change tacks. The only problem is that it's impossible to pick a new course. No one else is any more knowledgeable than you are, either, so don't bother asking for advice. Ask yourself instead if you're ready to enter uncharted territory.
● Love: Only you can turn a boring old day into a love-fest. You're infatuated with the whole world, and it can't help but return your affections -- resistance is futile.
● General: Some secrets are easier to keep than others. The ones that involve hurting someone you care about, for example -- that's the kind you have no problem keeping mum about. When it's the opposite, however -- when you know that exposing the truth might actually help someone you care for -- that's when the real dilemma kicks in. You'll be faced with just such a dilemma now. Better do some serious deliberating before you make up your mind.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Lead the way or lend a hand as your closest coworkers get organized behind a new initiative or just clear the way for new growth. Your role will be vital.
● Finances: Things haven't warmed up enough for you to take on any new projects yet but it's definitely beginning to thaw. You can smell a kind of financial spring on the breeze. It makes sense to organize yourself and prepare now, so you'll be ready for honing your rows when the right time comes.
● Love: One way to get things rolling in the love department is to redirect your energy momentarily. Play cupid and help out a friend -- your romantic karma will benefit and so, eventually, will you.
● General: When it comes to dramatic displays of affection, you're far more familiar with being on the giving side. Right about now, however, a loved one has decided it's time for you to have a taste of what it's like to be lavished with attention. This will probably arrive as a surprise, so don't let it be known that you have an inkling of what's about to happen. Let them have their fun, too. It's only fair.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Your ordinary workday will be disrupted time and again by distractions seemingly engineered by your competitors. It's all par for the course, so try just to adjust and keep moving.
● Finances: You're looking forward to something. You could hang out with your friends or spend the time alone. Either way is fine with you because you enjoy nothing more these days than staying within your budget. If that means remaining self-sufficient, then so be it.
● Love: Suddenly you're the love guru, with everyone you know coming to you with their pressing romantic questions. Apply some of the wisdom you're dispensing to your own situation.
● General: You're nothing if not a reluctant celebrity -- even when you know you deserve some public recognition. At the moment, however, you've done something that just can't be passed over -- something that a simple nod won't cover. Prepare yourself for a bit of the fanfare you've never been fond of. Oh, you can force yourself to enjoy it for a little while, can't you? Especially since it will mean so much to those who care for you.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: It's your day to get ahead. Make your move and do what it takes to seize the advantage -- it won't be hard, and you'll be able to hold on to what you take.
● Finances: There are plenty of things being kept from you. Even the couch knows to keep its change hidden under the cushions. Instead of driving yourself crazy trying to find the secret to success or waiting for the mystery to be revealed to you, start being systematic about putting the pieces of the puzzle together.
● Love: Sure, you want to get noticed, but not for the wrong reasons. Don't let your ego run away with you now -- a little modesty and subtlety are much more attractive.
● General: Even if you were halfway across the world just weeks ago, by your standards, that's still probably far too long. So when the chance to travel arrives, you'll jump on it -- and why not? Everyone deserves the chance to do what they love as often as possible during their brief time here on the third planet. Besides, when they've had their fill, it makes them ever so much easier to get along with. That goes double for you.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Getting along with teammates and colleagues has never been more difficult. Try to work on your own, but don't be surprised if personality conflicts slow things down.
● Finances: Someone is pestering you so much you can't go over all the necessary details. They've just about driven you to distraction. Before you let them drive you completely crazy, understand that the last thing they want is for you to be well informed. They have their reasons.
● Love: Explore some new romantic territory. You're fearless and intrepid, and for good reason -- luck's on your side. Whatever you get into now promises some sweet results.
● General: Business matters haven't exactly been difficult lately, have they? In fact, isn't it more accurate to say that everything's been coming up roses? Well, there's another sweet deal en route -- maybe even sweeter than the last, if you can believe that. So once you're sure that Lady Luck has once again smiled on you, why not share the wealth? You don't have to start a foundation, but taking someone special out for an elegant dinner wouldn't hurt.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: There won't be any shying away from issues today, no matter how difficult they appear. Face them directly and you'll be able to dispose of them as quickly as possible.
● Finances: It seems like your financial problems have a gravitational pull of their own. Even if you can't break away from them to freedom, you can still get plenty accomplished while stuck on the ground. They can only hold you back if you let them.
● Love: Someone's being demanding without being particularly deserving. There's no need to be stingy with your affections, but your time is valuable, and so's your energy.
● General: If anyone is ready for romance, it's you. And the universe agrees, too -- so much so that you've been chosen to receive one of those wonderful evenings that only come along a few times a year. Think of it as having your own personal concierge fairy show up on your doorstep with cash, tickets for two to the event of your choice and a limo -- oh, and the person you'd love to share it all with.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Emotions will be all over the map, and this will make dealing with customers and colleagues especially tricky. Try to engage with them on a personal level.
● Finances: Why be broken hearted just because others don't want the same things you do? It takes all kinds to make the world go 'round. Find someone who shares your agenda and it will be a lot easier to accomplish your goals.
● Love: It takes extraordinary creativity to deal with the sudden changes and random interruptions you're experiencing in the love department. Luckily, you're extraordinary enough to make it all work beautifully.
● General: Some rumors are fun to hear -- so much fun that when you hear them, you start thinking about making one up to send back via the same messenger. Something along those lines is about to reach you now, regarding a certain someone you'd be hard pressed to deny your attraction to. Don't even bother trying to deny it. You're sweet on them, and apparently the feelings are mutual. Now what are you going to do about it?
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: You'll be the center of all the good energy in the workplace for a while, so get used to smiles and requests for assistance from unusual places.
● Finances: You've been told that being too critical will leave you with no relationships, but does the same hold true for your investments? Not exactly. You're never left with nothing by leaving it under your mattress. Be as picky as you feel the need to be.
● Love: The border between fantasy and reality is rather a porous one for you, and right now your mind's wandering back and forth freely. Daydreaming's fine, but know what's real -- and what you really want.
