Your Power Tarot Card for December 10 & December 11

Your Tarot Power Card for December 10 is Wheel of Fortune

The Wheel of Fortune

Change is hard, but sometimes resisting change brings about even more low points in our lives. For example, if resisting the end of a relationship or situation, you may be just banging your head against the wall. Not only can life never go back to the way it was, but refusing to let go can keep you from starting a new cycle that could be even better than the one that you’re having such a difficult time giving up now.

 

 

 

 

 

Your Daily Tarot Power Card for Tuesday, December 11

The Magician

Sometimes the best laid plans seem to just be dead in the water. A project seems to not have the power behind it that you hoped, even though it seems like a legitimate and smart course of action. There’s a reason for this. The Universe is telling you that this is not your divine purpose. Even if your brain is behind it, your will is not. Tough though it may be, switch gears and you’ll find yourself rewarded with progress!

Your Daily Love Tarot Card for December 10 & December 11

Your Daily Love Tarot Card for December 10

Strength

Strength can sometimes indicate weakness, and that is the case today. It is time to deal with someone or something that appears, disappears, and reappears just when you are optimistically ready to embrace the new. It is a mind game. They want to reassure themselves that they still have ‘it’ or you at the snap of their fingers. Be strong. Say “no thank you” this time. Besides, what are the odds that this gamer can grow up?

 

 

 

 

Your Daily Love Tarot Card for December 11 is The Sun

The Sun

Has someone promised too much and delivered little lately? If so, that someone lacks integrity. Promises that aren’t kept erode trust and trust is critical. You can’t ignore the fact that their actions do not match their words. The first caveat is to avoid being seduced by what someone is saying as they talk their way into your emotions. The second, and the advice now, is to step back and analyze the situation.

Your Daily Tarot Card for December 10 & December 11

Your Daily Tarot Card for December 10th is The Tower

The Tower

Keywords: sudden change, pride, houses and buildings, liberation!

Astrological Correspondence: Mars

The Tower card first and foremost illustrates that neither physical nor emotional structures that we build are permanent and stable; instead, they can be destroyed suddenly, thereby initiating change that we have tried to avoid. The sudden change resembled by the crumbling tower reminds us of letting go of outgrown beliefs and values, of releasing an illusion, an unhealthy relationship, an old way of life. The sudden change frees us to face the unknown, frees us to move forward instead of stagnate, frees us from social conventions and enlightens us on our path so that we reach a new level of understanding about our purpose in life. Not embracing the inevitable change brings out the negative elements that the Tower also depicts: being struck down by one’s own doing, by vanity and the inability to change so that one remains stagnant.

Your Daily Tarot Card for Tuesday, December 11 is The Magician

The Magician

Keywords: work, new beginnings, activity, overwork!

Astrological Correspondence: Mercury

As the archetype of the masculine principle, the Magician represents someone who is able to achieve goals through his creative abilities and his skills in using the tools available to him. The Magician symbolizes the beginning of something new, when everything is possible. It can be a start of a new relationship, the birth of a new idea or creative project, or a financial strategy. The Magician is a confident person realizing his full potential by taking positive action and focusing his attention and energies on the task at hand. This includes employing magic. On the negative side, the Magician represents egotism, treachery, and overconfidence, thereby misleading others into making wrong choices.

Read what’s in the cards for your sign this week!


Welcome to the week of December 10! Each week a card will be pulled for your zodiac sign, offering the guidance and insight needed to maximize your opportunities and avoid any obstacles headed your way. Reveal the message the Tarot has for YOU now!

Aries Tarotscope (March 21 – April 19)

Your card for the week: Page of Swords

If you’ve been waiting for a sign to get started on an idea you’ve had, this is it! The Page of Swords indicates you’re filled with energy and excitement about a new project or venture. The question is, can you sustain this boundless enthusiasm once you get going? No matter which direction you choose in life, there are always going to be hurdles you’re going to have to overcome — but don’t let that deter you. Know that by following your passions, you will be able to keep up this momentum.

 

Taurus Tarotscope (April 20 – May 20)

Your card for the week: 5 of Cups

The 5 of Cups indicates you’ve been allowing yourself to wade in a sea of regret and disappointment. While the pain you’re feeling is very real and shouldn’t be minimized, it isn’t a free pass to stay stuck in this mode forever. By choosing to focus on your perceived failures or mistakes, you can’t see the positive things right in front of you, nor can you move on toward greener pastures. There’s still hope, and it’s important this week that you find where that hope is and shift your attention to that.

 

Gemini Tarotscope (May 21 – June 20)

Your card for the week: 4 of Cups

The 4 of Cups signals that you have been feeling unfulfilled and craving some kind of change in your life. Perhaps you are looking around and seeing what others have, longing for those things that aren’t a part of your own life. It might also be that you feel unmotivated in your present circumstances. While it’s nice to aspire, it’s easy to get caught up in an unhealthy cycle of desire. This week try to address the root cause of these feelings. Is the grass really greener on the other side, or do you just need to spend time watering your own grass?

 

Cancer Tarotscope (June 21 – July 22)

Your card for the week: Page of Pentacles

The Page of Pentacles represents enthusiasm for new beginnings and new ventures. This week, you are being encouraged to express your creative talents in some way. Have you been thinking about starting something but haven’t taken the first steps to get it off the ground? This card wants you to take those imaginative ideas you’ve been toying with and start working toward manifesting them. By remaining focused and applying a strong work ethic, you give yourself the ability to turn your dreams into a reality.

 

Leo Tarotscope (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Your card for the week: The Lovers

You could be facing a major decision this week! This situation may be presenting a moral dilemma for you, and The Lovers card represents needing to becoming clearer on what your values and beliefs are before determining how to proceed. Do you feel compelled to go a certain direction based on fears or feelings of guilt? Don’t let those things become motivating factors. Instead, try to understand that every action has a reaction and decisions such as these are never easy. Stay true to yourself — you can’t go wrong.

 

Virgo Tarotscope (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Your card for the week: The Star

You can breathe a little bit easier, because relief has arrived this week! The Star is signaling a reprieve after a period of great change or difficulty. While this turmoil has not been easy for you to go through, you have been able to endure whatever challenges life has thrown your way. What lessons have you learned? What were you able to let go of that was holding you back? How will you move forward differently? Now is the time to shed the old you, so you can emerge as the person you were meant to be.

 

Libra Tarotscope (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Your card for the week: The Sun

The Sun is truly shining down on you this week! This card represents abundance, optimism, success, and the warmth of a happy time in your life. It may be that you’ve been going through a tumultuous time in your life, feeling as though there wasn’t an end in sight. Well, it’s always darkest before the dawn — and dawn has arrived! Through these obstacles you’ve learned a lot about yourself and have gained confidence from knowing that you can weather any storm. Enjoy this period of positivity, because you’ve earned it.

 

Scorpio Tarotscope (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Your card for the week: Queen of Wands

Aren’t you quite the social butterfly? The Queen of Wands indicates that you a charming and enthusiastic energy is overflowing from within you this week, and others won’t be able to help but take notice. In fact, you could find yourself smack dab in the center of the attention! This is the perfect time to put yourself out there, connecting with others and integrating yourself into a group of like-minded individuals. Don’t hold back — your enthusiasm could end up being contagious.

 

Sagittarius Tarotscope (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Your card for the week: 9 of Cups

Receiving the 9 of Cups could signal that this is the week when your stars will finally begin to align. When this card appears in a reading, it is a signal from the universe that everything in your life is as it should be. This dose of fortunate energy could mean feeling perfectly content in your job, your relationship, your friendships — your emotional cup could truly runneth over! Take the time to stop and appreciate the abundance of blessings life is offering you right now.

 

Capricorn Tarotscope (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Your card for the week: Queen of Cups

The Queen of Cups indicates emotional maturity, compassion, and a nurturing spirit. This week you are being called to express this energy in some way. Perhaps a friend approaches you with relationship troubles, or it could be that a colleague is coming to you for support with a problem they’re facing. When this happens, listen from the heart as they speak but remain emotionally separated from the issue. While it may be tempting to dive head-first into the situation with them, understand that only they can work themselves out of their predicament.

 

Aquarius Tarotscope (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Your card for the week: The Emperor

The Emperor is encouraging you to have total ownership of your true power! Your life experiences have helped you gain incredibly valuable wisdom and insight. How can you use this to help yourself? How can you use this to help others? This week you might be asked for guidance or advice from someone close to you — don’t shy away. Alternately, you may be faced with a difficult personal decision. Don’t worry, you now have the kind of knowledge and perspective that will help you navigate either of these scenarios with positive results.

 

Pisces Tarotscope (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Your card for the week: 7 of Wands

The 7 of Wands is urging you to stand your ground this week. Receiving this card indicates you’re experiencing some kind of opposition or roadblock in your life right now. Your initial instinct may be to retreat, giving into whatever challenge is standing in your way. However, it’s important to stand up for what you believe in. Setbacks are inevitable but giving up is not. Put on your emotional armor and draw upon your courage and inner strength as you tackle this obstacle, so you can eventually overcome it.

Striking Gold in Your Birth Chart

Striking Gold in Your Birth Chart

Astrology’s degrees and minutes are worth their weight


Have you ever looked at your horoscope and wondered what all those funny degrees and minutes are all about? Well, you’re not alone!

One of the most confusing things about studying Astrology initially is getting a grasp on the mechanics behind a birth chart. In fact, before you read the rest of this article, look at your own birth chart so you can see what we’re talking about as we break it down into degrees and minutes.

Math phobics out there tend to see the degree circle and minute sign and break out into a sweat. No worries — you can relax: This is NOT advanced Calculus. In fact, after reading this short primer you’ll know exactly what you’re looking at in terms of degrees and minutes, no matter whose birth chart you’ve got in your hands.

 

Let’s start with decans

Let’s begin with an explanation of how many degrees fill the horoscope wheel. We all know that there are 12 signs in the zodiac, but what you may not have known is that each sign is comprised of 30 degrees. Each zodiac sign will have three sets of decans contained within it — and these decans all equal up to 30 degrees.

The first decan of any sign goes from 0 degrees to 9 degrees, 59 minutes and 59 seconds. The second decan goes from 10 degrees to 19 degrees, 59 minutes and 59 seconds. The third decan goes from 20 degrees to 29 degrees, 59 minutes and 59 seconds. This is true no matter which sign you’re looking at. Also note, there are 60 minutes in every degree, but we don’t use 60 minutes as a marker. Rather we go from 0 (and this is the 1st minute) to 59 minutes (which is really the 60th minute).

When you multiply 12 by 30 you get the magical number of 360. No matter whose horoscope you have in your hand, you can rest assured there are 360 degrees contained in it. No exceptions!

A fascinating parallel to these 360 degrees is that they represent one 24-hour day. Therefore, a birth chart in its entirety will represent the motion of one 24-hour day here on Earth.

When you look further into the 30 degrees contained in each sign, there’s even more interesting significance. Certain degrees are believed to hold greater meaning in a birth chart than others. These degrees are commonly referred to as Critical degrees.

For the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn), the critical degrees are 0, 13 and 26. For the Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius), they are 8-9 degrees and 21-22 degrees. For the Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces), they are 4 and 17 degrees. Do you have a planet or sensitive angle in your chart at any of these degrees? If so, you can expect more of a focus in that area of your life.

 

Working with anaretic degrees

Furthermore, 0 degrees of any sign is considered a critical degree due to the karmic nature of being at the beginning of the sign. It is said that whatever planet or point is at 0 degrees will be in the early stages of learning lessons related to that point. Conversely, if a planet or point is at 29 degrees of any sign it is called an Anaretic Degree, and it symbolizes karmic completion related to that planet or points energy.

It is possible that if a person has a birth chart with many planets or angles at the Anaretic Degree he or she is a very old soul. There may be a sense of urgency or need to finish up something related to that planet or points energies as well.

So, what happens if a planet is at 29 degrees and 59 minutes? We saw this example recently with the much anticipated birth of the royal baby. He was born when the Sun was at the tail end of Cancer — 29 degrees and 59 minutes. If he was born just a short time later, the Sun would have ingressed into 0 degrees Leo.

Cancer and Leo are very different energies! This is why knowing the degrees and minutes together of a planet or point is so vital. It helps us determine where a planet or point truly is astrologically. A planet at 29 degrees 59 minutes of any sign is still in that particular sign. Not to mention at a critical degree.

Your Daily Horoscope for Tuesday, December 11

Your Daily Horoscope for Tuesday, December 11

By Kelli Fox

 

Aries

March 21- April 19

This is a day to challenge yourself and explore undiscovered frontiers. This should be easy, since you’re generally fearless in the face of new ideas or experiences. You could discover a humanitarian streak you didn’t realise you had, as you throw yourself into projects. Global concerns seem especially important and poignant now. You genuinely want to make a difference. With your energy, that shouldn’t be difficult at all.

Taurus

April 20-May 20

Your loved ones may seem emotionally unavailable today. Or they might be literally unavailable, off on some solo adventure or neck-deep in a project. And where does that leave you? Lonely, maybe. But there’s no reason you can’t get wrapped up in your own pursuits. Just remember to come up for air sometime. With your legendary work ethic, it’s easy to focus on a project and end up feeling isolated.

Gemini

May 21-June 21

A flash of insight could lead you down a brand-new path today, either literally or figuratively. You’re exploring interesting intellectual territory, that much is certain. And following your mental impulses is best now, because it feeds your creativity. At the end of the day, you might have come up with a whole new philosophy, or at least a clever solution to an old issue. Innovative thinking leads to groundbreaking moves.

Cancer

June 22-July 22

You might feel moody today, and it could be hard to find a close friend to help you talk it through. Having to bottle everything up inside only makes your feelings more intense. But your focus is strong now, so losing yourself in work is a good idea until you’re able to get your feelings off your chest. Then, it’s time to chat, text or phone that friend of yours.

Leo

July 23-August 22

You want to stand out from the crowd as the unique, original person that you are. Flamboyant acts certainly have their time and place, but today might not be it. Dramatic behaviour doesn’t come across well now. And what’s wrong with blending in with the group? It’s perfectly natural to want to be special. But today might go more smoothly if you resolve yourself to being a part of the whole.

Virgo

August 23-September 22

You’re naturally a bit shy, and today you’re especially reserved. Making a warm, easy connection with someone may have to wait a few days, but that’s okay. You can use this brief period for solitary pursuits. Your thinking is as clear as ever, and sticky, tricky emotions won’t cloud your logic. In fact, you might err on the side of being unsympathetic — another reason to spend time with your own thoughts.

Libra

September 23-October 22

You’ve always been a people-person, and today your interest in your fellow humans is even higher than usual. Coworkers, friends and even perfect strangers are intriguing. Expect a day of conversation and spontaneous ideas. Brainstorming is a great activity now, since your creativity and intellect combine with others’ to great effect. Your inner genius is shining out for all to see. Some might even say you’re brilliant!

Scorpio

October 23 – November 22

You’re private by nature, but you’re also a people person. You need warm, emotional contact with the people you love and trust. If your best friend or sweetheart seems emotionally unavailable today, don’t take it personally. This is one of those days when most people are busy with their own thoughts and projects. If you feel lonely or isolated, seek out a group, or concentrate on enjoying your own company.

Sagittarius

November 23-December 20

You have no trouble with big, far-reaching ideas and abstract concepts today. You’re in the perfect mood and mindset for adventurous philosophies. Do some reading up on a subject that’s unfamiliar to you, or brainstorm with a group of friends or coworkers. You can create some exciting energy by making mental connections and tossing out theories as they come to you. This is true creativity at work, Sagittarius.

Capricorn

December 21-January 19

A bout of creative thinking makes you seem unconventional in other people’s eyes today. Isn’t it fun to keep your friends or coworkers on their toes? Just when they think they’ve got you all figured out, you throw them a curve ball. And there’s definitely a method to your madness, as everyone will soon see. For now, don’t worry about what others think. Work solo, if you have to. Just keep chasing down these brilliant ideas.

Aquarius

January 20-February 18

You like to keep people guessing, and today is good for making plans that will do just that. And yes — though it may seem contradictory, you can chart out unpredictable courses! No one knows better than you that a bit of forethought goes a long way toward following a truly unique path. Today, consider the next four weeks. Set some goals you can reach within that period of time. Aim high, Aquarius!

Pisces

February 19-March 20

Being a part of a crowd holds great appeal today. You want to work side by side with other people, toward the same ideal. If you can look up to a visionary leader, so much the better. The stronger your sense of belief in what you’re doing, the more energy you can muster. Just be sure to rest up at the end of the day. Such energy could be overwhelming!

Your Daily Horoscope for Monday, December 10

Your Daily Horoscope for Monday, December 10

By Kelli Fox

Aries

March 21- April 19

Annoying twinges of insecurity have made you more self-focused than usual. Still, why the indifference to everything that’s going on around you? Just because you’re worried about the state of your own life doesn’t mean you should neglect your friends, family or colleagues. People depend on you for your energy and fiery motivation. So focus on building community today. That’s how you’ll gather your strength.

Taurus

April 20-May 20

Time and again, you’ve proven yourself to be a true-blue friend or partner. At this point, everyone knows you’re a force to be reckoned with. When it comes to choosing sides you’re motivated by loyalty. You have no problem committing yourself to a person or project you believe in. This sort of dedication inspires the same in the people around you. Today, you’re sure to benefit directly from someone’s desire to prove that they’re worthy of your devotion.

Gemini

May 21-June 21

Someone’s getting on your nerves today, and you’re tempted to let them know what you think of them. But resist that urge. Don’t treat anyone disrespectfully now, no matter how much you think they deserve it. Losing your temper will just lead to hurt feelings. Do your best to rise above, and make peace with other people as well as with yourself. You’ll feel better simply for proving to yourself that you can do this.

Cancer

June 22-July 22

There’s a good chance you’re imposing your own point of view on your partner today. You might think you see their side of things, but you’re just seeing what you want to see — which helps no one. Whatever you’re pushing for, try setting it on the back burner for now, so you can make a sincere effort to connect with your partner’s true needs or feelings. This shouldn’t be too difficult, since you’re empathetic and connected.

Leo

July 23-August 22

A silly, restless mood overtakes you. It’s fun to goof off, but your boss may not have a sense of humour about it. Of course, if you’re expecting a better offer, you probably don’t care how you come across to higher-ups, and you can do what you like. But if you care about your work and would prefer to maintain positive connections with your colleagues, you’d better shape up soon. Show them you can buckle down and get serious.

Virgo

August 23-September 22

Even if you’ve made a few mistakes, no one minds. Being human means being at least a little bit flawed. And for all practical purposes, your record is spotless. This means you’ve earned the right to speak with authority in any situation that comes up today. Other people respect you because you play fair, and treat them justly. Put this to work for you. Now is a wonderful time for building alliances.

Libra

September 23-October 22

Today, feelings of impatience are building to a crescendo. If you don’t do something to remedy this tension, soon you’ll be more fretful than a stringed instrument. So why not play a relaxing tune and calm down? You don’t have to give in to your anxieties, you know. Remind yourself that these are just feelings, and not necessarily reflections of reality. Maybe that will help you acknowledge them and then dismiss them in short order.

Scorpio

October 23 – November 22

Mere competence isn’t enough anymore. You want to shine — to display the true genius that lives within you so that the whole world can see what you’re capable of. Well, guess what? Your mind and heart are very closely connected today, and new, worthier goals will crop up as you examine your life and your desires. Be sure to aim high as you choose a brand-new, true-blue direction for yourself. You deserve the best, you know.

Sagittarius

November 23-December 20

Today you’re in a restless mood, because you know you have to keep moving forward at a steady, measured pace. You’d prefer to surge ahead, and make this thing you’ve dreamed up a sudden and spectacular reality — but that’s not how life works. Not when it comes to important projects and labours of love. So try not to let all this organising and planning get to you. It’s an important step in realising this dream of yours.

Capricorn

December 21-January 19

You’re used to being disciplined about your work and pushing toward your goals, but now that careful approach gives way to the power of raw wisdom. Your instincts are humming and you’re drawing on your vast experience to make decisions. Since when did you become so daring? Since you woke up today! Give this newfound energy free rein, but do balance it with some restraint. Don’t worry, you’ll have a whole month to get this right.

Aquarius

January 20-February 18

You’ve always been good at broadening your mind and taking a fair, honest look at points of view that differ from your own. Today you’re in need of some perspective, because you’re currently a bit unclear on where to take your work. So open yourself up to ideas and suggestions that you haven’t yet considered — including ones that make you uncomfortable. You just might discover an unexpected pearl of wisdom.

Pisces

February 19-March 20

Impressions come fast and strong today, and they’re rooted in sharp, grounded awareness which lends them even more truth. So stay alert to them! You’ll tune in to something — an idea, a feeling, a frequency — that could end up taking you far in a relationship with a good friend or in your career. Write down any ideas, no matter how vague they might seem; you’ll build on them later. Most of all, follow your instincts!

Your Daily Love Horoscopes for Monday, December 10 & Tuesday, December 11

Pisces Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 10th of December 2018

It might have been easy to shake off or ignore a tricky romantic or relationship matter in the past but this could be a time when avoiding an issue isn’t an option. You have so many reasons to feel grateful for the love in your life, but it’s important you don’t miss an opportunity to find a few answers to some long unanswered questions. Only encouraging deeply and open two-way conversation can achieve that.

Pisces tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of December 2018

A new level of honesty could make its way into your emotional world or a love relationship. However, the first way it’s likely to manifest could involve you being honest with yourself about what you want to change regarding your interaction with or commitment to a certain person. If you sense something can’t continue indefinitely as it has done, then you could be instrumental un bringing a helpful and timely shift.

Capricorn Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 10th of December 2018

A certain truth could emerge in dramatic style, and demand that you don’t ignore it. You can summon some enthusiasm and optimism to look on the bright side of your emotional world or one special relationship, but reality needs accepting. Don’t waste time or energy trying to come up with quick-fix solutions. Instead, look inward and share what you find with the one you love. Honesty and forthrightness are essential ingredients to romantic or relationship progress now.

Capricorn tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of December 2018

You could have a comfortable idea about balance you’ve managed to create, possibly related to a festive get-together. A loved one or someone close could be a problem regarding this, especially if they have other ideas about what you should be doing or have organized. You’ve done your best to keep everyone happy, and the object of your affections might have an opinion or two about something they feel you’ve overlooked or ignored. For now, stick with your plans.

Sagittarius Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 10th of December 2018

You’re willing to put in the effort or pull out the stops to embrace a new attitude regarding love and romance now. However, just when you the road ahead is as clear as it could be, you could encounter a challenge that causes doubts to replace optimism. Try to see any hurdle as the helpful and timely reality check it is. It’s not the cosmos’s idea of bursting your bubble. See it as the opportunity it is to get you back on track regarding affairs of the heart.

Sagittarius tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of December 2018

You could feel extra-energetic now, but even you need to put some restrictions on your fervent energy sometimes. A loved one or potential partner is unlikely to be impressed with your gung-ho approach, especially if you bring competitiveness into a love connection. The same over-the-top approach could be applied to making promises or commitments. Don’t make either or both if you sense the tiniest possibility exists that you haven’t thought things through.

Scorpio Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 10th of December 2018

Growing tension fuels uncertainty in other ways and an urge on your part to reveal what’s on your mind or in your heart could intensify. Be honest without being insensitive. Be forthright without disregarding someone’s feelings. You can possess plenty of tact when you want to and saying what needs to be said will require you to summon as much as you can muster.

Scorpio tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of December 2018

You might have an ‘I want it all, and I want it now’ attitude in more than one area of your world, and your love life is no exception at this time. This can include believing you know what’s best for a loved one or potential partner. Making decisions on behalf of someone else is not advisable. If you believe you have an answer or solution, then talk it through first, don’t jump the gun by taking action singlehandedly.

Libra Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 10th of December 2018

Welcome the cosmic reality check on offer, even if it confirms that a love life scenario isn’t manifesting exactly as you’d hoped it would. Nurturing secret fantasies is fine and lovely on one level, but you might not be doing enough to turn one or two important visions into reality. Once you take action, you’ll need to continue being ambitious without being unrealistic – and optimistic without being reckless.

Libra tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of December 2018

You are probably a naturally sociable networker and prefer integrating with others on your terms. However, a clash could exist between your social life and love life, despite both managing to integrate just fine. If you’re attached, then this could be a bigger issue, especially if you feel torn between spending time with friends and your lover. Another possibility is that a loved one is a restrictive influence where your socializing is concerned. Either way, handle with care.

Virgo Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 10th of December 2018

Try to dial back impatience because it could complicate your love or romantic circumstances at this time. Wanting to make progress in some way faster than it’s possible to do so could be a source of frustration but don’t make matters worse by complaining about the pace something is unfolding at. If a loved one or potential partner insists the brakes get applied, then you might have no option other than to accept the wisdom in that request – or strategy.

Virgo tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of December 2018

Freedom of speech…we’re all entitled to it, but skill is often required when it comes to knowing when we’ve said enough – or too much. Maintaining peace and balance in your emotional world requires you to summon plenty of diplomacy and dial back certain strong opinions or viewpoints. Speaking more than you listen is a sure-fire way of creating tension or disagreements.

Leo Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 10th of December 2018

You could be aware of the need to walk on proverbial eggshells when it comes to broaching a tricky topic with a loved one. You want to encourage two-way openness but understandably don’t want to open the floodgates to an argument that may ensue by doing so. Maintaining balance and keeping the peace are big commitments. If you need to let storm clouds disappear before instigating a certain discussion, then that could be a wise move.

Leo tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of December 2018

You might feel a justified sense of Leonine pride that your talents are receiving the recognition they deserve in other areas of your world. However, don’t take it as a given that your love life can be pushed aside in favor of praise or rewards coming your way elsewhere. Whether single or attached, you could be easily distracted. Try to keep a balance where it’s needed.

Cancer Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 10th of December 2018

Tension could be waiting for a chance to manifest, and if it has already done so and you’re left feeling bruised from any exchanges, then you’ll need to rise above the unusual energy in a love relationship. Even if you feel one topic remains unresolved, leave it alone for now. Someone close probably doesn’t need to be made aware of pressure you’re experiencing in other areas of your world that might contribute to tension between you.

Cancer tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of December 2018

A money matter could put a dampener on a love connection, especially if it becomes clear that a new level of responsibility needs to be introduced toward spending, or shared resources. It’s not that one big expense is the problem either, It could be lots of small expenses or purchases that are adding up quickly. If a conversation needs to be had about who spends what or where you or a partner are absorbing one too many costs, then that could be timely and helpful.

Gemini Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 10th of December 2018

Introducing a bit more flexibility to current love life circumstances could be on par with a breath of fresh air, especially if tension feels as if it’s waiting for any excuse to manifest. However, this could be due to you not accepting the reality of your volatile but deep emotions. The answer surrounds not trying too hard to control or suppress what wants to emerge. A loved one wants only for you to be your authentic self and nothing more.

Gemini tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of December 2018

Cross wires and mixed signals could bring a host of complications to your emotional world. However, don’t assume the root cause is as obvious as you believed it to be. On the face of it, communication issues could appear to be caused by an obvious factor, but if you’re willing to probe and look beyond the obvious, you could discover what’s really presenting a problem to a loved one or someone close.

Taurus Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 10th of December 2018

If you’ve sensed a subtle but continuing frustration affecting a love relationship, then now’s the time to speak up about it. However, do so sensitively because you could be prone to being a bit dramatic to really make your point. This is a time when rehearsing what you intend to say could make everything so much easier. Be kind, honest and respectful, even if you feel pressure from a loved one to act differently.

Taurus tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of December 2018

You have a mental checklist of what you want and need from a current partner, or a potential one if you’re a single Taurean. However, do consider if you’re sticking too rigidly to certain expectations. It might be someone else who brings spontaneity to your connection that you might be misinterpreting as being an unhelpful distraction to what you believe you need. Love refuses to work to anyone’s strict agenda, including yours. Don’t lower your standards. Just replace one or two expectations with something a bit more flexible.

Aries Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 10th of December 2018

If you’re experiencing conflicting romantic desires or at loggerheads with a loved one about what both of you need emotionally and physically, then consider if you’re taking certain unusual ideas too far! Wanting to make a love connection more exciting is fine, but you’ll need to find middle ground between your and a partner’s ideas. Don’t take the need to do so personally.

Aries tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of December 2018

Something in your emotional world or within a love relationship could require you to think or react swiftly. Your biggest challenge might surround not reacting too emotionally or dramatically toward what arises. Try to see a romantic or relationship situation for what it is. It’s by applying a calm, practical solution that you can ensure an issue doesn’t escalate into something unnecessarily bigger.

Aquarius Daily Love Horoscope

Monday 10th of December 2018

You could feel challenged to express your most passionate emotions to a certain person, now or shortly. Being subtle just won’t cut it now, especially if a softly-softly or hands-off approach didn’t bring the results you’d hoped for. The object of your affections might not be as intuitively tuned in as you are, so speak from the heart in a very deliberate, unsubtle way. Laying all cards on the proverbial table might be the only way to go.

Aquarius tomorrow love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of December 2018

The Moon’s influence in your sign could rock an equilibrium between you and someone close. With emotions running that little bit higher, you could feel tempted to take one commitment to a new level. At the same time, you could feel enhanced emotions offer a chance to convey yourself more openly and hang the consequences. If traditional or ‘the usual’ ways of conveying yourself don’t appeal to you, then you could have a brainwave regarding a new and more unusual way of doing so!

CREATE A SAFE SPACE WITH YOUR DECEMBER FULL MOON HOROSCOPES

CREATE A SAFE SPACE WITH YOUR DECEMBER FULL MOON HOROSCOPES

FULL MOON IN CANCER

DECEMBER 22, 2018

(Northern Hemisphere)

December 23, 2019

(Southern Hemisphere)

We’ve nursed our intentions long enough: At the full moon in Cancer, they’re ready to be born.

True, whatever we began two weeks ago at the new moon is likely still a work in progress. But by now, it’s taken on a life of its own—and grown way too big to keep under wraps.

It’s a vulnerable feeling, for sure: sadness at letting go, mixed with the desire to shield your “child” (and yourself) from criticism, embarrassment, or harm. Add this to the emotional release that comes with any full moon, and it’s clear that this one—in the sign of the moon’s rulership—really packs a punch.

And with sensitivities running so high, it’s only natural that we might get a little defensive. Passive-aggressiveness and mood swings are other tendencies to watch out for.

But don’t worry—there are plenty of healthier ways to self-soothe. Enjoy a heart-to-heart talk, or a good cry. Indulge in some comfort food, or spend a cozy evening at home. Whatever you do at this full moon, be gentle with yourself… and with everyone else in your life.

After all, at this full moon, we’re all looking for a safe space.  Fortunately, the sun in Capricorn (which opposes this full moon) provides us with a supportive structure or container in which to process all the feels.

That doesn’t mean regressing back to infancy, though. The Cancer/Capricorn axis is all about being your own parent… the nurturer and the disciplinarian. That means knowing when to be responsive (to your changing emotions and moods) and when to be responsible (doing the right thing, whether you feel like it or not).

Still, more than any other sign, Cancer can bring up a lot of nostalgia for childhood and family. So whoever or wherever feels like home to you, that’s where you’ll want to be at this full moon!

HOROSCOPES FOR THE FULL MOON IN CANCER

CANCER

For better or worse, Cancer, this full moon hits you right in the feels. And regardless of what anyone else might think, the emotions you’re experiencing are a totally valid response to what’s going on. Still, you’ll want to keep a stiff upper lip—at least until you’re sure you’re in a safe space. Lean on a loved one for structure and support.

LEO

The pressure’s on, Leo… and as usual, you’ve risen to the occasion! But as much as we admire your diligence, we can’t help but wonder if you’re working too hard. After all, what more do you really have to prove? At this full moon, you can probably afford to cut yourself some slack—think of it as “working smarter, not harder.”

VIRGO

Time is money, Virgo… and you don’t want to waste one minute of it! But scheduling something for every second of spare time doesn’t leave you much room to relax. And at this full moon, you may be in the mood for something completely different. Feel free to change your plans—chances are, they’re not really set in stone.

LIBRA

Don’t let social media fool you, Libra: There’s no such thing as a “perfect” family. In fact, the more concerned you are with making your home life look good to outsiders, the harder it is to appreciate the reality in all its messy, complicated glory.  This full moon challenges you to take the filter off and get real.

SCORPIO

If you don’t stand for something, Scorpio, you’ll fall for anything. But no matter how solid your foundations are, you’re bound to slip up once in a while. A little “tough love” can go a long way toward getting you back on track—but the key word here is “love.” This full moon invites you to take it easy on yourself.

SAGITTARIUS

We all have needs, Sagittarius… some of us are just a lot more comfortable admitting it. And we get it—with your free-spirited image to uphold, neediness is not a good look. But if someone’s offering their support at this full moon, don’t be afraid to accept. After all, sometimes it just feels good to be taken care of!

CAPRICORN

Emotions aren’t always convenient, Capricorn, but they’re a fact of life.  And whether or not you feel the need to express yours at this full moon, it’s likely someone close to you is eager for a heart-to-heart. Don’t freeze them out; hear them out. Who knows? It might help you get in touch with your own sensitive side (we know you have one)!

AQUARIUS

It’s not that you don’t care, Aquarius—it’s just that sometimes, you have an odd way of showing it. True, your matter-of-fact approach makes you great at solving logistical problems or meeting practical needs. But sometimes the emotional ones are even more important. If you really want to help someone out at this full moon, try a little of that human touch.

PISCES

Some people thrive on structure, Pisces—and believe it or not, you’re one of them! After all, a dreamer like you needs more “down time” than any other sign… and that means setting boundaries.  With so many friends eager to spend time with you at this full moon, make sure to save some for the imaginary ones.

ARIES

It’s lonely at the top, Aries—unless, that is, you’ve got a good support system. Nurturing strong family ties gives you both a launching pad for success and a safe place to land. Still, work/life balance can be hard to come by… especially at this full moon. If you drop the ball, just take a deep breath and remind yourself you’re doing your best.

TAURUS

There’s nothing wrong with being pragmatic, Taurus. But if you’re looking at other people as a means to an end, you’re missing the bigger picture. Most likely, the people around you have their own agenda and unique take on things. Fortunately, this compassionate, emotionally literate full moon helps you understand their side of the story.

GEMINI

Relationships keep you honest, Gemini. But as helpful as it can be to have someone else holding you accountable, no one knows you better than you know yourself. At the end of the day, it’s up to you to decide which impulses to check and which to indulge. This full moon is all about balancing “tough love” with “self-love.”

A Glimpse Into The Year to Come 2019 – GET READY TO EMBRACE RADICAL CHANGE

2019 HOROSCOPE PREDICTIONS — GET READY TO EMBRACE RADICAL CHANGE

Have you been feeling stuck in a rut? Good news, 2019 is your year to start over. Forget business as usual—this year is all about shaking your life up so that you can do more of what resonates with you deeply and personally. That could mean forsaking an old life, career, reputation, or way of doing things—for something you feel brings your more emotional satisfaction. It could also mean breaking with tradition to create new habits and hobbies that you feel are more heartfelt.

As to where doing things that excite and resonate with you may have been difficult the past few years, this year is meant to help catapult you on some new journey that you have been formulating for quite some time. This journey will be very different from anything you have done in your past and may take some time to fully step into and complete, but will be very close to your heart.

This year, task-master Saturn will finally be making its way through the middle degrees of Capricorn, its home sign, for the first time in 29 years. This will require you to dedicate a lot of your time and attention to building something that is important to you with discipline and integrity.

Saturn, however, joining both Pluto and the South Node in Capricorn will require you to build things differently. What you will be building will be based more on emotion, and take more of your feelings and the feelings of others into account. It is no longer about creating something that is important to you at the expense of others, but by incorporating, understanding and being compassionate towards them.

Cosmic rebel Uranus traveling through the sign of Taurus for the first time since 1935 will also ask (or push) you to utilize your full gifts and talents to achieve these deeply heartfelt dreams of yours, and own what makes you entirely unique. This kind of alignment favors those who are bold and confident in their abilities, yet also extremely pragmatic. Hiding in the shadows and keeping all your talents a secret as you wait to be discovered will simply not do. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and show everyone what is special about you as an individual. Then, go all in on your strengths.

The North Node of the moon points the way to our future. With the North Node being in Cancer for the first time in 18 years, honoring your emotions and nurturing yourself throughout some major life changes will be key. Many of us may be moving, adjusting relationships with home and family, or re-discovering old interests and comforts that were once lost.

Wait, the best is yet to come. Expansive Jupiter moving into its home sign of Sagittarius, where it has not been for the past 12 years, will help give you more exuberance to accomplish some of the things you need. Because Jupiter works most freely in the sign of the Archer, doing the things that you enjoy and attracting more abundance should be way easier than in previous years even if your life is going through major shifts.

As it usually does, communication guru Mercury will retrograde three times this year. It will retrograde in Pisces in March, in Leo and Cancer in July, and in Scorpio in November. All retrogrades will occur close to the degrees many major astrological alignments happened in 2018. These retrogrades, especially the ones in water signs, are here to help you adjust emotionally to the new life you will be creating for yourself in 2019.

These Mercury retrograde transits are, indeed, extremely useful, as they will require you to think very differently about your past, about who you really are, and about what you ultimately want out of life. The main goal here is to stop and ask yourself what makes you feel truly happy and fulfilled. The next step is… start aligning your life in that direction!

Use this year as a chance to tear down old structures that aren’t working and build up new ones that you feel are more authentic and meaningful to you. It may take some time and discipline to do so, and it could feel scary to forsake old habits and projects, but what will remain after these outdated structures have been torn down is something that is more enduring and supportive of something bigger—the real you.

Embrace this opportunity to reset your life and start over doing the things that resonate with you more deeply with the support and guidance from your 2019 Premium Horoscope.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for December 10 & December 11

Daily Cosmic Calendar for Monday, December 10

Long-term readers of this calendar know that every so often the cosmos ceases its usual relentless bombarding of Planet Earth. That’s the scene right now as the recent celestial provocations temporarily dissipate in favor of mostly encouraging lunar aspects. The moon parallel power-of-positive-thinking Jupiter (7:05am) is the initial success-booster followed by supportive, 60-degree constructive link-ups from the lunar orb in Capricorn to wounded-healer Chiron in Pisces (11:26am) and now a little speedier-in-forward-motion Mercury in Scorpio (12:39pm). Complete odds and ends in a good mood during a void lunar cycle that starts at 1:28pm and ends 2 hours later when the moon enters airy Aquarius (3:41pm). Group projects, team sports, community fundraising drives, and global causes close to your heart and philosophy of life are strengthened with the moon transiting the eleventh sign of the zodiac. Tune into major investment plans as Monday night morphs into Tuesday morning in sync with the moon making its monthly union with Vesta (forming exactly at 12:45am tomorrow).

[Note to readers: All times are calculated as Pacific Standard Time. Be sure to adjust all times according to your own local time so the alignments noted above will be exact for your location.]

Daily Cosmic Calendar for December 11

Following the important monthly lunar conjunction with Vesta in Aquarius (12:45am) — energizing investment planning as well as safety-security matters, insurance rates and coverage, and soul-sister ties — the cosmos reverts to the disagreeable nature it had for the first eight days of this month. Mercury makes an adjustment-requiring, 150-degree liaison with outside-the-box rebel-leader Uranus (3:39am) while the sun forms a tension-generating, 45-degree tie to Vesta (11:22am) and Ceres confounds Chiron via their connection of 135-degrees (1:29pm). Ambiguity and irritability are temporarily in the driver’s seat even though the moon attempts to make things right by contacting benevolent Jupiter in a constructive, 60-degree alliance (6:35am).

Calendar of the Moon for December 10 & December 11

Calendar of the Moon
10 Ruis/Poseideion

(Note: These next five rituals are meant to be performed one after the other, on five consecutive days. Since this is the month that is often cut short, this rite will not be done every year. The House should check the year’s calendar and see if all five days are included in the year; if not, do not do any of these rites, and save them instead for another year. Do not start this cycle only to stop in the middle, for that would be terribly bad luck. Instead, continue with more of the Elder Tree Month invocation days until the Solstice.)

Day of the Underworld I

Color: Grey
Elements: All
Altar: Upon a ragged grey cloth set a vase of dried thistles, some oil of rue, a chalice of water and vinegar, and a box of remembrances from dead people.
Offering: Whatever the Gods tell you.
Daily Meal: Fasting tonight, until the next morning.

Underworld Ritual I

East Caller: Spirits of the East, Powers of Air!
We invoke you as the chill winds that blow
Ashes into our eyes,
Dust into our throats,
And cold into our bones.
Strip us clean, winds of winter!
Leave us bare of illusions
And empty of thought.
South Caller: Spirits of the South, Powers of Fire!
We invoke you as the funeral pyre,
Burning away all the trappings of life,
Blackening what is bright,
Destroying what is ephemeral,
As we are all ephemeral.
Burn us clean, fire of transformation!
Leave us clean grey ash in the air.
West Caller: Spirits of the West, Powers of Water!
We invoke you as the salt tears that fall
As we mourn the passing of all things.
For all things run down the river of time
And we do not see them again.
Wash us clean, tears of mourning!
Leave us foam on the waters
That slowly ebbs to nothing.
North Caller: Spirits of the North, Powers of Earth!
We invoke you as the cold earth of the grave,
Frozen around us,
Pressing us down into the depths,
Blotting out all air into stillness.
For we must learn the peace of the tomb
If we are to truly understand the joy of Spring.
Leave us to rot under the Earth
Until it there is nothing left of us.

Underworld Invocation I:

Now the Sun is overwhelmed,
And we are left alone to die
With all the faded trees,
The wasted flowers,
And so we also fade and waste –
Our birth, our youth, our prime,
Our proud excess, our cosmic fall:
Now ended all, and we are left with the mean prize
Of poverty and dull decline,
To fill the silence between the ticks of time.
Whither fled our strength
And our ascending leaves?
Whither fled our laughter
And our foolish golden bells?
Where now stand those scaffoldings of fire,
Those limbs of light wherein we played?
All are now pulled down,
Our lean possessions shrunk
To fill a little box,
And all our senses, our delights,
Turned pale and leached of taste,
Paled to a scentless draught that rusts the heart
To a mere foolish ticking clock.

(All should be silent for the space of ten heartbeats, and then the following chant is started in a whisper:)
Chant: The brain must break,
The bone must crack,
The blood must clot,
The heart must stop,
The flesh must rot.
(The chant is repeated until it dies away, and then the chalice is passed in silence. Each takes a single sip, and then it is placed back on the table. Leave in silence, with heads bowed.)

[Pagan Book of Hours]

Calendar of the Moon
11 Ruis/Poseideion

Day of the Underworld II

Color: Grey
Element: Earth
Altar: The altar should be the same as the night before, with the vinegar water replenished if necessary. Something made of rotting flesh should be placed on the altar, for scent.
Offerings: Whatever the Gods tell you.
Daily Meal: Fasting tonight, until the next morning.

Underworld Invocation II

We are the stricken, dying with death,
Shrouded with weeds, wrapped in our loss,
Silent we wait, clouded by tears,
Torn by the wind, ragged with mist.
Where we are wounded
There is no healing.
Where we decay
Nothing is sound.
Ravaged by night, abandoned by day,
Silent we wait, shadows of grey.
Old in our broken houses of flesh,
Old among ruined pillars of Sun,
Old as the halls to which we descend,
Old as this dark that does not end.
Call: Tonight we go under the ground.
Response: Tonight we are as corpses in the Earth.
Call: On this night, and the next, and the next, we are dead.
Response: On this night, we feel our bodies as they rot.
Call: On this night, we praise the worms and the beetles.
Response: On this night, we learn about the grave.
Call: On this night, we learn that Earth is silence.
Response: On this night, we learn that Earth welcomes us home.
Call: Receive us, Guardians of the Gate!
Response: Receive us, Lords of Death!

(All kneel before the altar for a long time, meditating on rot and decay. The chalice is passed, and all take a sip. Then all rise and leave in silence. That night, each should place under their pillow some dried weeds, or a handful of earth from a graveyard, for a reminder.)

[Pagan Book of Hours]

Calendar of the Sun for December 10 & December 11

Calendar of the Sun 
10 Yulmonath 

Sedna’s Day 

Colors: Blue, green, white
Element: Water
Altar: Upon cloth like the Arctic Ocean place a long net, many tangled skeins of thread, combs, and the figures of seals and walrus and fish.
Offerings: Comb the skeins and weave them into the net for Sedna.
Daily Meal: Fish.

Invocation to Sedna

Far to the North, in the coldest of waters,
Where the hunters survive by fish and seal,
A poor fisherman had too many children,
And his oldest daughter refused to wed.
So he bore her out into the cold waters,
And threw her overboard to her death.
Yet she clung to the boat, he cut off her fingers,
They fell into the water and became the seals and fish.
She sank to the bottom, where she became Sedna,
Queen of the Northern Oceans, Mistress of the Water,
With hair so long that it wraps through all the waves
Yet she cannot comb it, without fingers. So it is
That when Sedna becomes wroth, the waves pitch
And toss about, and there is no food,
For it is all caught in her hair. Shall we then take up combs,
And do the work of the angakok, on this one day?
Shall we honor Sedna, Lady of the Sea,
Victim turned Ruler, lost child become Queen,
And give her aid in her extremity, that the seals and fishes
May be many in the waters? Come forth, those who would
Comb out her hair, and with it your troubles,
Your conundrums, and all that is tangled in your life.

(Each comes forth and takes a tangled skein of thread and a comb, and sits before the altar to comb it out. As each finishes, they say, “Be well, Lady,” and weave the straight skein into the net. Those who cannot untangle theirs before the bell of Akte must leave it, and say, “I will take up this burden next year, Lady,” and give extra libation to Sedna in private, on their own.)

[Pagan Book of Hours]

Calendar of the Sun 
11 Yulmonath 

Day of the Snow Queen 

Color: White
Element: Air
Altar: Upon cloth of snowy white place many snowflakes, silver branches, a cup of clear alcohol in which has been placed a piece of dry ice to give off mist, and a knife of glass.
Offerings: Spend time in the cold, enduring her kiss.
Daily Meal: Frozen dishes.

Invocation to the Snow Queen

Hail to the Snow Queen, Lady Winter!
Hail to the cloak of white across the fields,
The treacherous ice on the road
That threatens us as we ride,
Creator of beauty on every window,
Sharp icicle that falls with lethal force,
Crystal of fairness that reflects the Sun tenfold,
Bitter winds of death that freeze the body
And free the soul to ride the circling blizzard,
We hail you, Heart of Ice, in this your season!
For you are the cutting edge of survival,
The one who tests us, and our skill.
When we fail to learn the lesson
Of the King of Frost, your consort,
We are left to your tender mercies
And gathered to your deathly white bosom.
Have mercy on us, Lady of the Snow!
Teach us that we must band together for warmth,
And teach us with a lesson less than fatal.

(One comes forth with the chalice of steaming alcohol, and another with the glass knife. The knife is dipped into the iced drink, and touched to the palms of each who will hold theirs out. Then the alcohol is poured out as a libation.)

Song: Snow Queen

[Pagan Book of Hours]
