Your ability to get things done quickly tempts you to take on more responsibilities than you can possibly finish. However, your holiday spirit may run into trouble if you overextend your reach today. Instead of thinking that you need to convert every intellectual breakthrough into tangible results, just allow your brilliant ideas to come and go like the tides. Visualize yourself standing on the shores of awareness, but remember that you don’t have to capture every individual wave to make your mark.

You’re waiting for something big to happen, yet whatever it is remains just out of reach. You may attempt to calm your nerves, but your restlessness lingers until you accept that the resistance comes from your own attitude. Fortunately, the tension disperses when you begin to let go of control. Don’t waste energy concentrating on too many specific details of the day; spend time focusing on your long-term goals instead. Ironically, aiming your attention at a point on the distant horizon has a positive impact on the present moment.

You think that you know what you want today, but the current circumstances keep changing. Just as you become comfortable with one perspective, everything shifts and you need to readjust your expectations. Your willingness to be flexible could prevent a serious headache.

Assimilating so much information may be a bit overwhelming now, especially if you believe you already have the answers to lingering questions. Your key planet Mercury is buzzing today, yet the more stuck you are in your thinking, the louder the static is from electrical Uranus. Thankfully, your readiness for change empowers you to explore the outer limits of your imagination. Remember that you don’t have to push your thought process over the edge; your evolving perspective is all you need to get the most out of your journey.

Your mind is currently operating at an incredibly high speed, yet you wonder if you’re capable of keeping it up throughout the entire day. You naturally assume that the flow of information will eventually slow down, but other people continue to introduce more complications. The hectic pace is fun at first, but might become more exhausting as the day goes on. Don’t try to do everything all at once. Extending your thinking into the future can help you remain calmer in the present.

You are possessed with self-confidence today, especially if someone you trust expresses approval of your performance.

Letting go of old assumptions clears the way for an exciting new direction.

But even a crisis or two won’t stop you if you’re open to starting over again and changing your course as needed. Your sheer determination is a marvel to behold.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You may hope that everything will calm down, but you probably won’t have a chance to catch your breath for a couple of days. You are called back into action today and you must show up ready to hold up your end of the deal. Fortunately, mental Mercury’s current stay in your ambitious sign indicates that you’re up for the task. You don’t have time to waste; face the current challenges with a fierce resolve and a can-do attitude. Climbing mountains is what you Mountain Goats do best.

Although your thoughts are integrally tied to your future, today’s planetary cluster in your 12th House of Escapism triggers your desire to fly under the radar with minimum impact. Nevertheless, you have no choice but to let go of your isolationist tendencies since electric Uranus zaps you out of your secret fantasy world. Overcome your fears and face the brave new world that’s right around the next corner. You might not be able to see what’s coming, but if you’re willing to take a calculated risk the rewards will follow.

You don’t have to convince others that your plan is the best one; you only need to communicate your ideas with honesty and integrity. There are no correct or incorrect points of view now, just differing ones. Even if your opinions are out of the box, others respect you for describing exactly where you stand. Nevertheless, you must demonstrate your sincerity by listening to other people’s positions. Keeping an open mind is the key to making the best choices for everyone involved.
