Horoscope for Monday, Dec. 17, 2018

Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Tread carefully this morning because the moon in your sign is making you feisty and aggressive. Definitely more emotional than usual. This could encourage power struggles with parents, bosses, VIPs and the police. Don’t even go there. It won’t be pretty. Chill out.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Avoid discussing politics, religion and race today, especially this morning, to avoid a nasty confrontation. People will get hot under the collar very quickly today if they think you don’t agree with them. Be smart and give these subjects a wide berth.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

A nasty confrontation about shared property, inheritances or anything to do with the possessions of someone else could arise today. Someone might even call the police. Use your clever way with words to sidestep any unpleasantness.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a poor day to make your pitch or ask for permission or approval when dealing with bosses and parents. Wait until later in the day, or better yet, wait until tomorrow. People are inclined to work at cross purposes, especially this morning. Keep your head down and your powder dry.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might be a bit hot under the collar this morning, especially if discussing subjects like politics, race or religion. Best to avoid these subjects today. You might suddenly want to travel somewhere. If so, avoid dangerous areas, especially related to crime.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This morning you might encounter disputes with others about shared property, taxes, debt or the ownership of something or responsibility for something. It’s a power struggle! Someone might want to shirk their duties. There are better days to discuss this. Do yourself a favor and move on.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Relations with partners and close friends are tense this morning. (This doesn’t have to be, but the odds are very strong.) This is because the moon is in a feisty sign, directly opposite your sign and at odds with Pluto. This makes tension with others very intense! Stay chill.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

If you’re unhappy about something going on at work, this is not the day to discuss it. People will not be receptive — in fact, they will resist you. Cooperation is difficult, especially this morning. Be aware of this. Be cool.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Parents must be patient with their kids this morning and, likewise, teachers must be patient with their students — even more than usual. This morning people are compulsive, impulsive and quick to anger. They are also quick to make silly assumptions. Yikes! “Duck and cover!”

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be tolerant and patient with family members, especially this morning. When it’s raining, you use an umbrella. If it’s cold, you wear an overcoat. Likewise, when others are too sensitive, too touchy and too impulsive (like this morning), you have to use extra patience and tolerance with everyone. You can do this.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Be careful because this is an accident-prone day for your sign. The only reason it is accident-prone is because everyone around you is impulsive, compulsive and possibly angry or upset. This encourages verbal and physical mishaps. Pay attention to everything you say and do.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Squabbles about money and possessions might arise today. Alternatively, you might feel you simply have to buy something. “Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!” Do yourself a favor and calm down. This is a jittery morning, which means you have to be mellow and patient.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Laurie Holden (1969) shares your birthday today. People see you as free-spirited and capable. You are cautious, realistic and honest. You love beauty and are also creative. This year you will simplify your life and build solid foundations. Hard work and effort pay will pay off. Focus your energy in one direction. Physical exercise is important. Explore yoga, martial arts or jogging — any physical discipline that you enjoy.
