Horoscope for 8th December


Courtesy: Marjorie Orr

IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be fun at an everyday level since thoughtful gestures of appreciation will come from workmates and neighbours. Though you’ll be fairly sharp in your comments if you run into delays or mistakes. Clearing out of your life what is no longer useful for the future will be a priority. As will keeping up your determined efforts to stay on top of your personal finances. Persistence will pay off. Your optimism will be high for the future.

ARIES:This is an emotionally light hearted patch when you will want to have a gang of buddies around. You will be spreading your social favours in all directions, not tying yourself down at any point. Safety in numbers will be your motto. You will be sympathetic though at times a touch jangled or just confused. When you stand still you will be good at giving reassuring support in return. You will come across as kind, caring, emotionally sensitive though rather restless.

TAURUS:If you have creative talents you should be making the effort to get them out on display to best advantage. Discipline yourself and turn your dreams into reality. Venus will only be around for a few weeks. Do not linger around too long. Don’t assume that being left to your own devices is a bad thing, or a sign that you are unlovable. Treat it as a blessing in disguise, to give yourself – emotionally, at any rate – a little bit of space.
GEMINI:Socially charming and more light hearted than of late, you want to mix with a much wider range of people, and perhaps to explore new leisure activities. You want to be out of your normal rut to find stimulation with companions who will stretch your mind as well as keep you entertained. It’s important to get the right kind of emotional contact with friends and other people, partly for affectionate support, partly because you want to bounce ideas off them for the future.
CANCER:There is nothing light hearted about your romantic life at the moment. Because Venus in sitting in the hidden area of your chart you want more drama than usual – a grand passion – or paradoxically you could be shutting off your emotional needs altogether. Maybe you are wary that if you open up to what you really want it could bring uncomfortable feelings to the surface. If you want more prominence, then do things that draw other people’s attention to you.
LEO:Your heart is definitely in the right place, so you will be ironing out difficulties, soothing ruffled feathers and generally putting your best diplomatic foot forward. If you are trying to sell or recommend anything at the moment charm will be your greatest asset. In a restless mood, you want to be anywhere other than where you are. But if you are stuck in the one place, go talk to more adventurous people. You really can’t be bothered with practical routines right now.
VIRGO:Maybe you are being just a touch too analytical about your feelings, standing back to dissect them, rather than plunging into emotional situations around you. If you can let go, you would find deeper connections and more fulfilling relationships. Just briefly you suddenly lose all thought of being superficial or frivolous. There will be certain points during this time when you want to get down into the depths to investigate, to stand steady until you find the long-term kind of answers.
LIBRA:Your ability to sparkle in the spotlight is certainly attracting a stream of compliments, if not new admirers. You will be flirting, having fun, and trying to duck out of boring chores as much as possible. In your closest relationships, both at work and at home, you may be clutching a little more than usual, hanging on to partners. Don’t get jealous and possessive if they aren’t exactly fitting in with what you want. Just move over and get in step with them.
SCORPIO:Adding elegant touches to your intimate surroundings is a top priority. Having beauty around will make you feel happier. Get out the colour charts, buy a few more pot plants and see what you can do. This is a time when other people will demand a lot of you. You’re having to go out of your way to make sure that everyone is being well looked after. If you feel a bit emotionally squashed give yourself a few tiny treats through now and again.
SAGITTARIUS:Thoughtful gestures from everyday companions are making you feel admired and appreciated. You are beginning to discover you do not have to move far from your normal routines to find affection. It may not be grand passion but it is rather pleasant. You will be promoting yourself in a very strong way, looking for the limelight. You’ll be flirting, laughing, singing and dancing. There will be more emotional depth in relationships with loved ones, whether it’s children, adults or indeed social companions.
CAPRICORN:You have a taste for what is fine and elegant at the moment. If your extravagances look like outrunning your budget a little then turn your creative skills to earning more money. All it takes is imagination and effort. Then you can afford a good many more treats.rnEven if you are on your own for a little while, it won’t actually bother you very much because you want to cool down, calm down and get away from hassle, hustle and aggravation.scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS: You will be wearing your heart on your sleeve, expressing your feelings of affection rather directly, and generally getting what you want. You’ll find at points now the words spill out all over the place and other people may get a bit avalanched, flooded by all your words and miss out on the sense. So once in a while you have to stand back and try to come to a few conclusions before you leap back out again. Others respect your sincerity.
PISCES:Love may not come as easily at the moment, maybe because you are over sensitive to rejection. You feel you would rather shut yourself away than let your feelings be seen. Maybe you do need a quiet time, just don’t let opportunities for romance slide by because you cannot force yourself to speak out about what you need. Sort out your priorities and decide what really is of value to you. There are other things that can lift your spirits when you’re feeling low.Horos
