For The Week Of December 5-11, 2011

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): You may have recently pitched back a volley that you thought put the ball forever out of your court, but watch out, as something crazy is going to come flying back, aiming right for your heart. Whether or not this is something you should dodge is likely something you already know, but whichever the case, get back into you’re A-game mode and set this victory straight!

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Freaking out over others’ incompetence isn’t going to help, as a day is only so long and you’ll need it all to correct their mistakes. While this is a thankless job, know you’re the only one that can save the day, and for that, be ready to pat yourself on back — and if that means purchasing something dramatic and expensive, well, why not? You’ll certainly earn that keep.

Aquarius (January 20-February 19): Getting lost in romance is a beautiful thing, and even more so when you see its actually a precursor to something more magnificent. So, this week, be prudent about how deep into this dream you want to get, as an escape route will be opening and if you don’t really see the sunshine and rainbows in a more eternal way, this would be the time to make your most gracious exit.

Pisces (February 20-March 20): Don’t let you imagination get out of control when it comes to assuming what your baby’s family is thinking about you — or what your relatives might think about your honey. As it goes, love and family will be like oil and water this week and there is nothing you can do to make them mesh. Civility is the minimum, but a little ass kissing won’t hurt.

Aries (March 21-April 19): You might be hearing what you want to hear, but don’t be so naive as to think that there is nothing more to this story. Be ready to ask tough questions and be persistent in your quest for the truth. As it goes, the deeper you go, the stranger the info might get it may have you looking at a whole other situation than the one you thought you were walking into.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Life is going to have to get a bit more uncomfortable before you can get comfortable again. As fate would have it, this week, a rug is going to get pulled out from under you, needing you to scramble to re-sort a few long-term plans. While the severity of this surprise is not certain, brace yourself as best as you can and know there was nothing you could have done to avoid it, nor is it your fault.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): You thought you were being so careful not to offend your honey, but it seems there is no stopping miscommunications from happening. So, be ready to step back and look at the bigger picture, as maybe these aren’t mistakes, but just the way things are. After all, there is no reason you need to keep apologizing, when all you are doing is being yourself.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): The only way you are going to get that other to take you seriously is if you stand behind your demands. Otherwise, caving in from impatience will solve nothing, and can only degrade the level of respect you get. Sure, standing your ground could get a lonely, but isn’t it better to be right and stand alone with integrity than be a poseur just so you can stand as two?

Leo (July 23-August 22): It’s not fair to be the one that’s doing all the work and this week it’ll be obvious who is doing all the heaving and all the hoeing. You know it; time to lay it on the line and start tallying the score. While it’s not cool to have to play in this petty way, it’s the only way you can truly see if you’re still on a winning team.

Virgo (August 23-September 22): Admit it, when you’ve got what others want, you love it. After all, jealousy can charge up the libido like none other. However, despite the status you might have, this isn’t the time to flaunt it, as trying to impress won’t get you far. Besides, if it’s for real, be cool and act natural, as that’s the only way to truly make those you want green with envy.

Libra (September 23-October 22): Don’t put what you need to do for you on hold, as your personal growth is on the line and if you fail to give yourself the time and space to get your goals in order, then the only thing you’ll get from that other person is a permanent source of resentment. After all, compromise should not be a set of shackles holding you back, so don’t allow yourself to let your honey be your scapegoat.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Although you’re not the cheeriest personality in the zodiac, this week, fake it until you make it and look of the brighter side. In terms of where fate is leading you, there will be some dark alleys you’ll have to run through, and it won’t be pretty. However, it’s mind over matter and if you can still believe in a happy ending as your destination, nothing can harm you.
