Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today. The Moon is in Aquarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

A friend or a member of a group might surprise you today, especially if they have gone overboard about something to do with shared property or how much they will support an event? You might receive more help or more money than you expected? Fingers crossed.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today bosses, parents, VIPs and the police might throw you a curveball because you will be caught off guard in some way. For example, you might be busted about something. (Eek!) Meanwhile, your partner or a close friend might overreact to this news.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Travel plans will be a source of surprise today. They might be cancelled, delayed or changed. Or perhaps, you will have to travel when you didn’t expect to do so? Something related to your job will be over-the-top today. You might consider it excessive or “more” than you expected.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Stay on top of banking matters and issues related to shared property and inheritances because something unexpected will affect these areas. (Make sure you know what’s going on.) Aside from that, this is a playful day for you and you want to have fun!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You will be at odds with a partner or close friend today about something. Very likely, they will do or say something that catches you off guard, which could be what causes a rift. Or perhaps, it’s because you want to make some major changes at home?

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Pet owners should be vigilant about their pets today because something unusual might occur. Meanwhile, computer glitches and delays at work are likely. Fortunately, your mental energy is high, strong and positive so that you can deal with whatever comes your way.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Parents should be extra vigilant today because this is an accident-prone day for your kids. Meanwhile, everyone can expect a few surprises when it comes to sports, social outings, luncheons, parties and fun occasions related to the arts. Easy to overspend today. (Gulp.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Expect a few surprises on the home front today. Small appliances might break down or you might break something. Alternatively, someone you least expect might knock at the door. (Get dressed.) Be patient with family members to avoid domestic friction. No one wants a quarrel.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Pay attention to everything you say and do today because this is an accident-prone day for your sign. This accident could be physical or verbal. On the upside, this same influence could trigger genius-like ideas because it means you’re thinking outside of the box! This is a high energy day!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Keep an eye on your money and your possessions today because something unexpected will impact your finances. Perhaps you will find money? Perhaps you will lose money? This applies to your possessions as well. You might go overboard supporting a group or helping a friend.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a restless day for you because the Moon is in your sign; however, it is at odds with your ruler Uranus, and Uranus is an unpredictable energy. Be wise and edit your remarks. Guard against blurting out the first thing that comes to mind because you might regret it. Pay attention to avoid accidents.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today you’re eager for adventure because you want something new and exciting to happen. This is why you feel a bit restless. It’s a good day to make travel plans for the future because that will be something you can look forward to.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Wendell Pierce (1963) shares your birthday today. You are easy-going and cheerful, with a warm, generous nature. You are creative and certainly determined when you are working towards a personal goal. You have strong morals and the courage to defend them. The year 2021 is a time of learning and teaching for you. It’s important to have time alone this year to explore beliefs and ideas.

DECEMBER 8 birthday horoscope predicts that your motto is that you believe in getting the most out of life, so do it. You are generally beautiful and resolute. But you are known to speak your mind which has a reflection on your outward beauty. You will not keep anything hidden in your heart.

It is likely that you, as a Sagittarius birthday, are stubborn people. However, you can be submissive. You can be extreme. From time to time, your dual personality makes itself visible and can be confusing to most people.

The December 8th birthday love compatibility predictions show that you fall in love too quickly or at least you think that you are in love. Even in “love,” you have difficulty remaining faithful and loyal to one person. Again, this could be due to your personality switches, or more simply, you are afraid of long-term commitment. As the December 8 zodiac sign is Sagittarius, when it comes to being a parent, you would indeed make a good one. You love young children and may feel that they could learn a thing or two from you.

The December 8th horoscope predicts that you take your health seriously. Mostly, you have a good attitude about life, and this contributes to your health conditions. You have no trouble speaking your mind, so this could eliminate a lot of stress and the presence of any blood pressure problems. You use shopping, like many people, as a means to lift your spirits when you are not feeling well.

We could talk about your career and your finances, but there’s not much to say other than you could do better when it comes to a job. You know this, and that’s why you move on to someone who will appreciate your talents. Normally, you work with people and are known for this. This, in addition to your skills, enables you to move forward and possibly have a profession that will suit your taste and salary requirements.

But the December 8 astrology analysis warns that the money you spend on your whims could be saved. You like having fun and splurging on your friends but remember your short-term goals and goals for retirement. However, Sagittarius, you will not let a good time stand in your way of achieving the status that you work so hard to achieve.

Professionally, these December 8 birthday personality are qualified to do some things. You have great skills as a communicator. This could be valuable in law enforcement, public speaking, and journalism. The future of person who born on 8 December truly depends on what his or her personality.

Additionally, you are an honest individual who could make a name for yourself in politics. At the same time, if you are interested in performing or in the entertainment industry, my advice is to go for it. Many born on this birthday today have successful careers as actors, ballplayers, and entertainers.

This wishy-washy attitude of the December 8th birthday personality can make life difficult for them at times. The result of some of your decisions are not the right ones. Another trait that could be considered as negative birthday characteristic is that some people think of you as being arrogant or boastful.

You may not like to compete but usually are the blunt of antagonistic behavior. Otherwise, you have an entourage of people at your beck and call. This could be because of the way you live. This zodiac birthday person likes doing big things, and when they have money, usually, they have many “friends.

The December 8 birthday meaning suggests that you have big plans for life. You dream big, and it’s okay. You have short and long-term goals that with your determination will be met.

The Winter Solstice



The Winter Solstice

The darkest day makes way for the return of light

December 21, 2015 marks the Winter Solstice, which is the official beginning of winter, and the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. But there’s a light at the end of this tunnel — literally! As the temperatures fall throughout the winter, the light grows, representing new hope during a time of darkness.

Ancient solstice festivals were the last big feasts before food became scarce during the harsh winter months. This magical day was celebrated from ancient Rome to China, and by the builders of Stonehenge to the Mayans. In fact, we all remember the Winter Solstice on December 21, 2012, which was the apparent end of the Mayan calendar, causing many to believe the end of the world is coming. Obviously, we’re still here!

Many modern holiday traditions, such as Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and New Year’s, have their roots in the Winter Solstice celebrations of yesterday. Winter festivals continue today, complete with lights, feasts, dancing and singing, and spending quality time with those we love.

Astrologically, the Winter Solstice marks the moment the Sun — the ruler of the zodiac — moves from adventurous Fire sign Sagittarius to the steady Earth sign of Capricorn. This is the dark night of the year, a day when the Sun appears to stand still. It’s a time for light and laughter, but also deep reflection.

The Sun’s move into steady Capricorn urges us to take some time to look back on 2015 before we make those New Year’s resolutions. What did we do right? What do we wish we’d done differently? Don’t fight the seriousness it brings to the festive holiday season — use it to start 2016 on the right foot! Just make sure to keep some of the Goat’s ambitious energy alive when the Sun makes its next move.

Comet Hale-Bopp Over Val Parola Pass

Image Credit & Copyright: A. Dimai, (Col Druscie Obs.), AAC

Explanation: Comet Hale-Bopp, the Great Comet of 1997, became much brighter than any surrounding stars. It was seen even over bright city lights. Away from city lights, however, it put on quite a spectacular show. Here Comet Hale-Bopp was photographed above Val Parola Pass in the Dolomite mountains surrounding Cortina d’AmpezzoItalyComet Hale-Bopp‘s blue ion tail, consisting of ions from the comet’s nucleus, is pushed out by the solar wind. The white dust tail is composed of larger particles of dust from the nucleus driven by the pressure of sunlight, that orbit behind the comet. Comet Hale-Bopp (C/1995 O1) remained visible to the unaided eye for 18 months — longer than any other comet in recorded history. The large comet is next expected to return around the year 4385. This month, Comet Leonard is brightening and may soon become visible to the unaided eye.
