Here’s our guide to what the stars predict for the week beginning Monday December 5.
ARIES (March 21 - April 20) Really getting into the holiday spirit? No doubt the emphasis is on splashing the cash but take care you don’t drown when the bills come in! It’s a great week for getting in touch with folk you haven’t seen for some time, even if it is only for a quick drink. Any time with you is always appreciated! Friendships grow closer and someone you met recently makes it known that they want romance.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21) This is a week in which it is hard to say ‘no’. If you are sure someone is going to ask for what you can’t deliver, avoid! It is better not to promise something that is impossible. Romantic tangles and blasts of affection at the weekend mean it is a good time to decide once and for all who you want to be with. Plotting and planning are essential if you want to be in the right place with the right person this holiday!
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21) Love is very much in the air this week, be it with a present partner or a new mate. Nothing can distract you when someone with a special smile is on your radar. Someone older would rather have your time in the holiday, than just another gift. It is a good time to travel and meet up with old friends. Do remember to get their up to date numbers and addresses to avoid miscommunications.
CANCER (June 22 - July 22) This is a great week when you are urged to get out and have fun! With so many positive vibes around it is hard to concentrate on any work. Even so, keep an eye on opportunities to shine in this area. If you don’t, someone else will! Plan the New Year carefully to be with the right people. Think ahead for New Year and take care with any travel then, which could be disrupted.
LEO (July 23 - August 23) Fun meetings revolve around those you have not seen for ages (well, it seems like it!) Pay particular attention to the needs of older relatives, some of whom may like to join in your frivolities. When choosing presents, put yourself in the other person’s shoes. What would you like? Younger people taken shopping have some really good ideas (apart from spending your money).
VIRGO (August 24 - September 23) Get-togethers at work could cause some romantic confusion. Someone there thinks that you are more interested than you realise. Tact is needed, especially if it is your boss! Stick a couple of spare gifts in the car in case you get a surprise. You never know who might turn up. Oh the joy of being admired! Give someone the benefit of the doubt if they get a bit ‘merry’ and let you know how they feel.
LIBRA (September 24 - October 23) You really are getting into the spirit of the season, aren’t you? Your usual cool exterior seems to be melting. Under the admiring glance of a workmate your blushes will increase. Of course, it’s all in fun, isn’t it? Well, isn’t it? Changing your appearance has everyone aghast. Being more outgoing and colourful than usual could be seen as a sign that you are having fun!
SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22) Short of money? Look for bargains early. Avoid buying duplicate presents by being organised. Travel is likely over the holiday but organise this so that you can avoid delays and snarl-ups. Better still, get others to come to you. Love comes from far away and old memories are rekindled. Anyone who wants your company had better book you early as you are going to be very popular.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 21) Romance this week will make your head spin. You may think that someone is having a joke when they make their feelings known, but take care. The chances are that they are very serious indeed! Finances should be running smoothly but don’t forget those bills that will be rumbling in January. Avoid any jealousy at home by not being too attentive to just one person.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20) There are jolly japes and weird goings-on. This week is more like Halloween than the festive party season! The unexpected and downright queer keep you on your toes. Really, with all that dancing your feet could be aching too. Too much fun could give you the heebie-jeebies by the weekend. Be lucky. Buy a ticket, put your feet up and book that massage.
AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19) A quiet start to the week changes rapidly midweek. Love is in the air all right and you will soon find out from which direction! Bringing others together has to tie in with the invitations being offered. Please get organised and try not to double book! Hidden talents come out this holiday season and you could be called on to entertain others. Just thought that I would warn you of that!
PISCES (February 20 - March 20) Brace yourself for a hectic and somewhat confusing week. Just when you thought you could relax at the weekend the invitations start rolling in. Don’t double-book but keep free for as long as possible as things are changeable. Of course, if someone makes you a special offer, you could take them along? Seek and find bargains at charity shops and boot fairs (especially good for fun faux presents).
