Horsoscope: Winter Break Edition

Aries (21 March-19 April) The Ram

In December Aries, remember to tune into your emotions at the very beginning of this month. Slow down for a minute and really ask yourself; Are you really happy and ready to move into the upcoming new year? This is a month of turning inward and discerning what you really need for yourself. What is it that you really want? Friends are always there to help, but maybe try to figure this one out independently. On the 8th and 9th work on turning on your charm to get what you desire. A cute date to Winter Formal perhaps? The 16th-18th is your time to take control of your academics and get those grades you’re working towards! It will be tough, but very worth those marvelous letters lined up on your semester transcript. Try to put past drama with friends or family aside on New Year’s Eve; it won’t help anything to dig up a past argument no matter how much you crave that drama. Get all dressed up and have confidence coming into a brand new year!

Gemini (21 May-21 June) The Twins

If things aren’t going exactly your way at the beginning of the month, don’t get moody, Gemini! People close to you might be feeling that you are acting a little bit selfish lately. Have some empathy for others this season and make time for your friend’s needs as well. Even though it is still very important to take some quality time for yourself, try going with the flow of things. You will find a huge burst of energy on the 6th and 7th. These two days will also lead to some miscommunication with a romantic interest at school, so be careful about how you choose to channel this newfound energy. Your naturally expressive personality can either help or hinder you, so watch how you deal with the situation. Deep thinking on the 16th and 17th will lead to new revelations in your future. Potential college or summer opportunities could arise; it is entirely your decision which path you choose to follow here. Thankfully, all of the issues of this year seem to dissipate in this final month allowing you to enter the new year feeling refreshed.

Cancer (22 June- 23 July) The Crab

The start of this month is looking very strong for you, Cancer! There is nothing or nobody that will be able to ruin your fun. At school and concerning relationships, you know what you want, so don’t be afraid to take charge and go get it. Go into a test or a Winter Formal proposal with confidence! You have so much potentially to gain, so a little loss would be worth the risk. The beginning of the month will be a very romantic time; whatever you are feeling is right on, so make sure to go and enjoy it! Your naturally sentimental side is sure to come out. Embrace it! Go to Zoolights with your crush or go ice-skating around the tree at the Lloyd Center. Whatever you choose to do will make for some great memories. Good news is heading your way on the 6th and 7th, but be ready to open up about some issues that have been on your mind lately, otherwise situations could spiral wildly out of control. Persevere when encountering setbacks with friends on the 14th and 15th. Cancer’s are deeply intuitive. Use this to your advantage in mending the broken ties, so that you when the 23rd and 24th roll around you can let loose and party a little with friends. You deserve a break! Finally, don’t hold anything back on the 31st and make sure that special person knows how you feel. Even if they don’t reciprocate the feeling, at least you’ll go into the new year knowing the truth. Overall, just make sure to keep an open mind and an open heart this holiday season and act as an anchor for the ones you love.

Leo (24 July- 23 Aug) The Lion

With Winter Formal coming up, Leo, show that special someone how you’re feeling in the beginning of this month. Go big! You love being in the limelight, so don’t be afraid to catch some stares. You may be feeling extra sensitive this holiday season, so make sure to plan plenty of you time. This sensitivity is not necessarily a bad thing, but sometimes it can make you a bit emotional. Don’t be afraid to explore a romantic possibility on the 12th and 13th. Just make sure to keep your ego in check; no one likes a big-headed date. Don’t cling to this person too tight on the 16th and 17th. Instead, try to decipher and distinguish where this neediness is coming from. Also, even if there’s something you REALLY want, the timing is not right to be asking for any favors from family or friends on the 18th. Be the one giving the favors, and they will be returned in due time. After all, this holiday is meant more for giving than receiving. New Year’s Eve should be lots of fun for you, Leo, but be careful not to go overboard. Get a friend to look out for you during the night and the 31st will go splendidly!

Libra (23 Sept-22 Oct) The Scales

 You can be both “naughty” and “nice” this month Libra, just be careful to choose your timing wisely. The beginning of this month might be a bit of a rocky start for you. Plans could fall through, relationships might get a little screwy, or your grades might go through a rough patch, but this will help with your flexibility for the future. Don’t get frustrated or jump to any rash conclusions. This chaos will be short-lived. Luckily, within a few days, you should be feeling very successful and adventurous, so get out of your comfys and go do something fun as a reward for your achievements. Libra’s have a desire to make everyone around them happy. Don’t forget to pay some attention to whatever it is that makes you feel content. If you find yourself stressed right before Winter Break, take a quick break just for you. Sit down with your favorite show and grab that guilty snack you’ve been saving for a special occasion. The most intimate time of the month for you will be the 23rd and 24th, but make sure not to overindulge. If you rush into things too quickly, you could scare someone off. You don’t want to come back to school with regrets. Wrap up the year with a spontaneous night on the 31st.

Sagittarius (23 Nov- 20 Dec) The Centaur

Happy Birthday Sagittarius! This is a big month for you. Make sure to keep everything in balance, and don’t overwhelm yourself. You will find yourself questioning things at the beginning of this month. See where these answers lead you. Think long and hard about what you need to change in the New Year. It may be hard to embrace these adjustments, but whatever decision you make is the right one for you. Don’t be afraid to put everything, and everyone, to the test. The aftermath of some of these tough decisions may leave you feeling moody and slow on the 10th and 11th, but it won’t last long. The next two days, you will be feeling happy and renewed. These days are great for productivity at school. The 19th and 20th are a time to reflect on this year and communicate your thoughts to your friends. They could be on the same page as you or on a completely different wavelength. Make sure to sort out everything so that you can enjoy a fun winter break in their company. Be kind to everyone on the 24th and 25th; a rude comment could land you in a lot of trouble. Stay out of the line of gossip as well. If you hear something, there is no need to contribute to it. This restraint will serve you well.  Go have fun on the 31st but be careful with how you handle situations on New Years Eve. A tempting risk could land you in a lot of trouble.

Taurus (20 April-20 May) The Bull

Get ready Taurus- this December, you have a lot of tough decisions to make. The start of the month is especially important, and the more clear and direct you are with your communication, the easier things will be for you! With your steady nature, your intuition is always your best friend, and your best weapon. Do not, under any circumstances, ignore your gut. This is going to be an exciting time for you, but make sure to be cautious with anyone new you choose to trust. Although the 6th and 7th bring a flirty fun, the 10th and 11th could mark the beginning of real commitments. Make sure you stay mature on the first weekend of break, the 15th, 16th, and 17th, no matter how hyper everyone else gets. And understand that emotional risks are okay- The Bull is famous for listening to it’s non-logical self. Take that leap of faith, and start preparing for that New Year’s kiss!

Virgo (24 Aug- 22 Sept) The Virgin

This month stresses organization for you, Virgo. Make those holiday plans this weekend, for the better organized you get early on, the more you’ll be able to enjoy the holidays. But you don’t want to forget about holiday romances because of your dedication to the season, so open your eyes. Pack a little extra chapstick, just in case you need those lips to be super supple, especially on the 8th and 9th, and watch out for stray mistletoe. Be patient with your family over the holidays, not everyone can be as grounded as you are. The 24th and 25th could prove to be especially stressful, but they don’t have to be. The 28th and 29th bring lots of fun, so learn to let loose and just enjoy it. This holiday season is also the time to break out of your shell. As much as you hate risks, let it all hang out New Year’s Eve! You won’t regret it.

Scorpio (23 Oct-22 Nov) The Scorpion

December is an energizing time for you, Scorpio, and it’s pulling you in all different directions. Explore that someone or something that’s been catching your eye recently, because a new fascination could lead to an unprecedented adventure, especially the 10th and 11th, when you’re in your most irresistible mood. This could be the perfect time to ask that special interest to Winter Formal! Even though you try to hide it, your “Scrooge” nature could get in the way early in the month. Get over yourself, and get into the holiday spirit! Join in with fun activities like  Secret Santa, or help with the party planning. Your natural charm and attraction could make this the best holiday season yet, but only if you use it to your advantage. Since this month is so indecisive for you, it’s important to listen to others’ advice, even though you think you’re better than that. Plan something low-key for New Years, but rely on that strong willed nature to commit to new resolutions.

Capricorn (22 Dec-20 Jan) The Goat

This holiday season will be a breeze for you, Capricorn. Your hard working nature puts you ahead of the holiday madness which might seem silly to you, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it. At the beginning of the month it’s important to start moving again. You’ve been feeling a little lazy and listless, but now it’s time to get exercising. You’ll welcome the routine in the long run, and it’ll help you keep things in perspective, especially on the 4th and 5th when some school-related troubles could arise. This is a great month for you romantically as well, but it’s time to figure out what you want. Envision your ideal relationship with that special someone on the 12th, and by the 14th and 15th this could become a reality! Spend some time to yourself this holiday season, specifically the 23rd and 24th, and take December 31 nice and easy into the new year. A low-key celebration is going to be much more enjoyable for you anyways, and there’s no reason to over extend yourself.

Aquarius (21 Jan-19 Feb) The Water Bearer

Aquarius, this month is all about action for you. It’s time to stop thinking, and start doing! Start organizing your feelings right away, and ask yourself: What are you missing? The holiday season is a great time to start looking at jobs, and the cold weather invites someone warm as well… maybe even a Winter Formal date? Remember, things can always change as time goes on. The beginning of the month shows that you’re the essential ingredient in every holiday party. All your romantic questions will be clarified the 8th and 9th, but the 16th and 17th are when you most radiate possibility. And even though you could hear some rumors near Christmas time, try and stay away from that high school drama. You’ll still be expected to lead your friends, but remember you can rely on them too.

Pisces (20 Feb-20 March) The Fish

Lucky for you Pisces, your December starts off just the way you like it: Lots of fun and heaps of romance. The first weekend of this holiday season brings lots of flirtatious fun and boundless creativity, so make the most of it. But the 4th and 5th could bring a swirl of school related drama, so even though you might want to dive right into it, it’s best to take a step back. Remember to be fair and flexible, even though it might not come easy. The 10th and 11th are great days for self reflection as well; If someone is dragging you down, cut them off! Treasure your friends and family especially towards the end of the holiday season. They know that with you, even a little affection can show you care. When it comes to presents, remember that a sentimental gift can mean much more than an expensive one- don’t feel the need to always flex your money, or you could lose it all.
