Your Daily Horoscope for Friday, December 14
By Kelli Fox
March 21- April 19
Slow down today. Pushing ahead at your usual hectic pace will only lead to confusion and running around in circles. But if you take it easy, things will roll along at their own pace. And truthfully, isn’t it nice to get a little break? Life can be so demanding. Today is perfect for relaxing with a good book. Or get absorbed in music or an engaging film. Let your mind wander.
April 20-May 20
Kindness and creativity are your keywords for today. The gentle side of your personality comes to the fore now. You have a smile and a kind word for everyone you meet. You’re famous for holding grudges, but now it’s much easier than usual to forgive and forget. Thus, it’s a wonderful day for bridging gaps in your relationships. You can make a heartfelt connection with someone from who you previously felt estranged.
May 21-June 21
You’re feeling creative today. At least, you would be if you could make any sense at all of the impressions and feelings currently swamping your consciousness. The best you might be able to manage is just letting these emotions come, and sitting with them as they pass through. If you’re lucky, some thought or image will make sense to you. If so, write it down so you can revisit it later.
June 22-July 22
Your intuitions are extra strong today. You can read people quite clearly, even if they’re bottling up their true feelings. It’s especially easy to read your friends and loved ones, and to make them feel well cared for. The best kind of love you can offer, after all, is your compassion. When someone feels truly understood, it’s as good as a hug. This is the gift you can give others today.
July 23-August 22
Life could feel a little rough today. But really, it’s just that you’re more emotionally sensitive than usual. Of course, you’ve always been a softie. You might fool people with your bold, courageous personality, but you can actually feel quite insecure. Today, that comes out in vague worries or a general sense of discouragement. Reality seems harsh. But remember, it’s all a matter of perspective. Soon, you’ll feel strong again.
August 23-September 22
Life’s edges get a little fuzzy today. For many, this softening is a pleasant experience. But for you, it can be nerve-racking! It feels as if everything is just slightly out of your control. And you do enjoy feeling as if you have a firm handle on things. But maybe this is a good opportunity to experience a different perspective. Don’t judge or even process your emotions. Just feel them.
September 23-October 22
Today you’re extra sensitive to other people’s needs and feelings. This can be both a good thing and a challenging one. For example, if there’s tension in one of your relationships, you’re more likely now to take a passive role in deference to the other person. But sometimes, it’s better to take a stand — even if doing so is difficult. Try to judge each situation on its own merits.
October 23 – November 22
Today, let all pre tenses and manipulations fall away. Whatever personal agenda you may have seems unimportant in the face of your urge to connect with others in a simple, heartfelt way. It’s also easier to resolve tensions. If someone has hurt you, you can forgive them now, once and for all. This clears not only the air between you, but your own mind and heart. That’s how true healing and growth begin.
November 23-December 20
At the end of the day, you may feel as if you lost time to wishy-washy feelings and perceptions. But let yourself off the hook. You may not get a lot accomplished today, at least not on the outside. But inside, your emotions are developing. Give yourself time to make sense of the images and feelings that come to you now. Soon, they may provide more inspiration than you expected.
December 21-January 19
Matters of the heart seem more important today than anything external like work, recognition or accomplishment. Your only duty now is to connect with the people you love. And reaching out to them isn’t just for their sake. It’s for yours, too. Take this opportunity to reaffirm the bonds that keep you close with family and friends. Days like this are what carry your relationships through rough spots and emotionally lean times.
January 20-February 18
You may find yourself drawn to meditation or yoga today, or some other practice that helps you get in touch with a higher state of being. A good, simple way to do this is just to take a few quiet moments to get in touch with your feelings. Of course, exploring a spiritual or transcendental philosophy can be quite liberating. But sometimes, just checking in with your own emotions is all you really need.
February 19-March 20
You’re drawn today to acts of selflessness, or even self-sacrifice. It’s wonderfully fulfilling to help people or animals in need. But your energy may be a bit low now. Don’t hold it against yourself if you simply can’t do as much as you’d like to do to help someone. As long as your heart is in the right place, that’s all that matters. Do what you can, and let that be enough.
