Horoscope for Dec. 31, 2018

Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The moon is in Scorpio.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

For the first time after two years, your ruler Mars returns to your sign, where it will stay for all of January. This will totally pump your energy and make you upbeat, energetic, proactive and ready for life! Go, go, go!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today you want to improve things because as you look around, you could see what needs to be done. By contrast, this evening, you will enjoy a mystical, romantic discussion with someone. Sounds intriguing!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You are in a practical, sensible frame of mind, which is why you will accomplish a lot at work today. You want to get as much done as possible before your new year begins. This evening, however, you will be playful and full of imaginative ideas!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You’re in a playful mood! However, you do have the focus necessary to make plans for socializing that you want to do later tonight. You might be involved with teaching kids today or training in sports. This evening is full of fantasy and play!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You are ready to make practical changes at home and be helpful to family members today. You feel like being alone with your thoughts and feelings. In fact, you’re not in the mood for frivolity. By evening, however, everything shifts to a playful, mystical moment. Who knew?

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today you will scrutinize your surroundings to see what needs to be done. You’re making mental lists and tackling various tasks. It’s a good day for study and routine work. However, as the day wears on, you will begin to daydream and fantasize. (Hmm, so much for that to-do list!)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You will be sensible about your finances today. You want to pay off your debt so that you can start the new year debt-free — or at least in better shape. Don’t be tempted to spend too much money this evening because something will persuade you to do so.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today the moon is in your sign. Initially, it encourages a serious point of view in you and you don’t feel sociable. However, a shift will occur as the moon starts to dance with Neptune, which means that by evening, you are sensitive to other people’s moods and you want the company of others.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today you will accomplish a lot by working alone or behind the scenes. You are focused and you want to wrap up stuff before this year ends. However, by evening, you will be intrigued by mystical secrets and hidden ideas. “Let’s get out the Ouija board!”

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Someone older, perhaps a female, might have some practical advice for you today. Or perhaps vice versa. You’re thinking about your future goals, especially in a doable, achievable framework. By evening, you will enjoy the company of someone because your mood completely changes. “Wanna play?”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

A discussion with a parent, boss, teacher or VIP will be practical and focused today. You’re looking at your long-term direction in life and thinking about your goals. By evening, you’re tempted to spend money on capricious, whimsical experiences. Why not? It’s the last day of the year!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You can study and learn a lot today. You might also have a serious discussion with someone about politics, philosophy, religion and other lofty ideas. But as the day wears on, you become more and more interested in hidden mysteries and mysticism. “Fascinating!”

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Bebe Neuwirth (1958) shares your birthday today. You are witty, likable and sincere. People are attracted to your friendly, common-sense approach to life. This year you are wrapping up a nine-year cycle. That is why it is a time of completions and taking inventory. Expect to say goodbye to people, places and possessions. The good news is you are moving away from heavy burdens to something new and lighter!
