Your Daily Horoscope for Tuesday, December 25
By Kelli Fox, Astrologer
March 21- April 19
At the moment, your words are as bright and vivacious as your personality. You’re backing your solid convictions with vivid descriptions, and everyone is listening. They’re looking to you for answers, because they recognise you as one of the sharpest minds in the room — and one of the most innovative. That’s a good thing, too, because today, you’re all about telling rather than showing. Is this out of laziness? Probably not, but even if it were, no one would mind. They’re just happy someone’s providing guidance and inspiration.
It’s still okay to be proud. Pride can help define who you are. Don’t become stuck up, though. Don’t delude or spoil yourself. Maybe there’s no one exactly like you, but that doesn’t make you better than everyone else. Today could easily rob you of what you so vainly possess, if you go around challenging other people’s pride. Watch out. Don’t confuse the present with the past. Stop reacting to things that happened long ago. Keep your personal history in its box and keep your senses in the moment.
May 21-June 21
You’re a dynamic presence but a casual player, and that’s exactly how it should be. Because why waste any of this good energy on stupid formalities when you could be thinking outside the box and capturing a much bigger audience? Yes, you might be having the time of your life with whatever it is you do best, but you ought to have a plan for locking it into your future, too. So if you want to get things started, put your effort where it will matter today.
June 22-July 22
You’ve always had a special connection with the past and taken the teachings of tradition to heart. The old ways still impress sentimental you, especially now, as past lessons come back to you. Now, more than ever, you understand why you live by the values and routines you do. In some meaningful way, things you’ve always taken for granted now come true, and you’re able to wow everyone with all the things they’ve forgotten in their own lives and hearts. Later, it’ll be on to something new again, including testing the boundaries.
July 23-August 22
Once it was an act of courage to stand alone. All of a sudden, independence is elegant and sexy. Hey, personal freedom is the new black! It looks good on everyone. Do what you want, go wherever you feel like going, and let others think what they will. But even as you cultivate that air of mystery, don’t isolate yourself. You can’t keep them guessing forever. Today is bristling with possibilities, and if you hope to rub up against some of these things, you need to make yourself available. You could start something, and then nothing could stop you.
August 23-September 22
Take today off for some mental hygiene. You’ve been really pushing forward on something — but now it’s time to take a little breather. Let your iron cool off for a couple of days, and limit yourself to thinking and doing only what comes easily. You deserve a break, Virgo, and your whole life will benefit from your refreshed perspective. In a few days, you can jump back into the fray and really get something accomplished.
September 23-October 22
High spirits will lead you on. Solid beliefs will keep your head from getting too far ahead of your feet. Can you see the balance and symmetry of it all? Also notice that your goal will start looking a lot closer today. As much as you approve of how you’re doing now, don’t let your ambitions and desires eclipse your friendships. Your companions are part of this whole adventure, too, and they deserve their share of the light and heat you’ll be putting out. Success is always sweeter when you can share it.
October 23 – November 22
Today you’ll be skeptical and impatient. You’ll try to get a laugh at other people’s expense, and it’ll just make things even worse if you end up laughing alone. You’ll try to guide development and growth with an iron hand, making rules no one else ever heard of. Forget that — it won’t work. Even if you wrapped it in a velvet glove, you’d still have a hard sell. Bottom line? Brute force isn’t an option no matter how you dress it up. Try compromise instead.
November 23-December 20
You’re in charge today. Why? Because everyone’s responding to your high spirits and broad-minded outlook. They all want a piece of what you seem to represent, and boy, do you make it look attractive. Watch, though, that no one takes you for granted. If someone tries to take advantage of the fact that you’re so ready for anything, simply take a moment to redraw your boundaries. You have a knack for it today, Sagittarius, and you can do it in a lighthearted way that offends no one.
December 21-January 19
Everyone knows how smart you are, so don’t think you need to prove it all over again by being pigheaded about your point of view. Getting stuck in one perspective won’t help anyone, and you could look like a snob to people you like and respect. Isn’t it better to agree to disagree, at least today? You know other people’s ideas are just as valid as your own. Take some time to keep reviewing the facts and going over your options. You can make figuring things out a team effort.
January 20-February 18
You’re in an unusual mood, aren’t you? Pepped up, zingy — maybe even a little romantic. You know how to charm both your admirers and your admire-ees. But making people laugh isn’t enough, even if you bring every ounce of your creativity to your stories — and even if you enjoy being centre stage, for once. Don’t you want to go a little deeper than that? Pursue a real connection, whether it’s a romantic connection or just an intimate bond with someone you deeply love. Don’t stay surface-level – you’ll short-change yourself.
February 19-March 20
If you do things in a slapdash way, you’re inviting interference, and that’s a good thing to remember today. After all, other people aren’t really acting out of pity. Maybe they have their own agendas, or maybe they aren’t seeing things correctly. Either way, any local mistakes could easily have global consequences. You’re all too aware of that fact — still, don’t let anxiety affect your health. Relax, take deep breaths, and trust your instincts. They’ve always been a good navigation system, and once again they’ll guide you through this tricky period.
