The Sun begins a broad square with the outgoing energies of Jupiter, one which runs on until next Thursday. This can add merriment to the building festive vibe, but does have some potential downsides too.
With Jupiter not at its best in Virgo, and squaring the Sun in the zodiac sign it rules, any excess in terms of seasonal consumption, be it spending on gifts or enjoying calorific goodies to the full needs to be tempered. Equally it will be important not to ignore details. For your FREE Daily Horoscope Saturday 12th December 2015 please see below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Although the atmosphere continues to be volatile, today's blend of energies might help you see things from a more down to earth perspective, offsetting any desire to rebel or to indulge in day dreams. You'll still need to gauge your reactions though, as a carefree Jupiter link could be a distraction unless you stay focused.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
Seeing the back of a difficult situation can give you a real lift, and this may be really noticeable today. Furthermore, as your ruler Venus continues to angle up quite beautifully to Neptune, the connection you are enjoying with one person could be proving special. This can be especially so if you share a love of the arts or performance.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
If you have a dreamy but rather ambitious idea percolating, today's planetary backdrop encourages you to question its validity. Ask yourself if what you're planning is really possible. Should what you want to do rely on the input or approval of someone else, there's even more reason to double check its workability.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
If you're looking for a way to resolve a tense situation, then the optimistic Sun Jupiter connection might be a factor in encouraging you to think you can. New energies are coming into play that can gift you with fresh insights and a greater range of options. In love, a sense of enchantment is possible or a deeper spiritual connection.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
If recent events have proved unsettling, things should become more routine soon. However, all this may have brought on the realization of where changes need to be made so as to avoid the same thing happening again. Perhaps the only thing you should avoid is spending money loosely as an antidote to any pressures.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
If you have become more aware of the importance of rest and relaxation, this weekend can see you determined to enjoy yourself. What can help this is a quite magical planetary influence, one which could see you making a very special connection or sharing a conversation that can be truly uplifting. All this can be so reassuring.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Recent events may have left you reeling at the thoughtlessness of a certain person. Nevertheless, this may also have taught you the importance of doing what's best for you. While it's only natural for you to accommodate others' needs and wishes, you have to consider your position and your personal interests too, Libra.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Attending a social event can be just the thing for brightening your mood, especially if you're in need of light relief. Venus in your sign can help splendidly in this regard, and Neptune make you receptive. However, the situation you've been dealing with probably won't just melt away and may still require some thought.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Yesterday's New Moon could be a turning point if it encouraged a desire for an easier life. To this end, today's grounding Capricorn focus can see you getting back to basics and paring away activities and even relationships that have taken up too much time. The fewer distractions you have, the less you'll need to fret.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
You may see things from a different perspective today - one that encourages you to face the facts and to take action accordingly. Although you might be dealing with an intense psychological drama or battle of wills, the ground can seem more solid. One friend could also be tremendously encouraging towards you, Capricorn.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
The Moon in a more private part of your chart can signal a day when you could benefit from taking some time out. With big hopes for the future highlighted, but in an overall mix of choppy cosmic energies, a chance to recharge your batteries or spend time with those who really understand you, can prove very therapeutic.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
With yesterday's beguiling Venus Neptune tie still in focus you may want to view the latest must-see movie or absorb yourself in a real page turner, great music or any activity that affords a chance to escape from life's realities. You could be in demand socially too, with the present outlook encouraging you to mix and mingle.
