Your Friskyscopes For The Week Of December 16-22, 2013

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): Just when you think your demons are dead, regret will start to burn inside you — and it’ll have the power to flip you and your scene completely upside down. Yes, discomfort and frustration are par for the course this week. However, if you dig deeper this time, you will find the golden nugget buried within.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Secrets are going to come out and you’re going to have to go with it. It might even be you that spills the beans — on yourself. No matter, ’tis the season for awkward situations. So, take this shot of humility like a lady. If you don’t make it weird, no one else will. Plus, by next week, there will be so many new traumas, everyone will forget about yours.

Aquarius (January 20-February 19): Coast on all things love, because that’s how you’ll get the upper hand. That means no more setting up odd psychological traps for your baby (or whoever you’re feeling), because trying to make sense of who they are and what they want doesn’t have to be a game. Let it flow and your boo will be right where you want them.

Pisces (February 20-March 20): Family members don’t have to agree with your relationship choices. Of course, everyone is entitled to their opinion. However, if you do find yourself restless in bed at night, dissecting every word of conversation that dissed your current love, take it to heart. After all, in all jokes there is a bit of truth. Not to say these critics are 100 percent right, but neither are you.

Aries (March 21-April 19): Unless you happen to have a ticket to a faraway land, giving yourself a vacation from the holiday that keeps aggravating, you won’t be able to avoid dealing with traditions you wish you could just kill and bury. Until that day comes, be ready to put on a happy face. Yes, merry, merry to the season of crowd-pleasing behavior and performing undeserving favors.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): You’ll be tightening your purse strings and not feeling the giving spirit. Yes, you will have reached a limit to your generosity and it’ll be time for you to close the doors to the factory. Just know, though, that there will be a knock at the door in due time and at least one person will be able to restore your faith in something decent — and in this world, that’ll be winning.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Don’t complicate your life by asking “what if?” Be in the moment and forget the rest. There are deeper resources inside yourself that you can pull out, if you’re willing to handle the raw truth. You don’t have to be scared of anything now, so bite the bullet. The good news is that when you do react, you will see a sense of perfection in life again.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): The ending is always the same in your attempts at love. The problem is getting all your characters to do as you wish. Unfortunately, your life can’t be directed like a play and if you keep holding onto that ideal, you may miss the boat on another opportunity that comes along that just isn’t the way you thought it would be, but perhaps could be better.

Leo (July 23-August 22): Boredom and booze is never a good combo, but sometimes it’s inevitable. This week, beware of professional and private situations colliding. Instead, compartmentalize all areas of your life and do not allow any of the parts to touch. The more you can separate the yolk from the egg, the saner your thinking, the easier your mood and the better chance of avoiding bouts of STD hypochondria you’ll have.

Virgo (August 23-September 22): Everybody is weird in their own way. You accept it or you don’t. The thing is you have to accept whatever you are getting “as is” and love it. If there is any project mentality that is part of your love life, it’ll be a rough ride soon enough. Although you do go up and beyond when you think you can feel it for another, now is the time to work smart, not hard. 

Libra (September 23-October 22): When it comes to romance, someone’s going to be a real stick in the mud —either you, your boo or both. Yes, moodiness will abound in a way that can get dark, so, it’d be in your best interest to stay in your own corner and keep it light. Get lost in a crowd, avoid places with privacy, or otherwise, a claustrophobic week it can be.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Words you’ve said will come back to haunt you. While you can always deny, deny, deny, and then go on your merry way, best to confront the situation. At worst, misunderstandings will be worked through, clearing the path for a new way of looking at a situation you thought was unsalvageable. At best, you’ll have someone under the mistletoe to molest.
