Your Daily Horoscope for Monday, December 10
By Kelli Fox
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
