So, here we are. The final day of the year, and one where we can start to hone our New Year's resolutions, should we wish. The secret is combining inspiration with perspiration, whatever our hopes.
Thank you sincerely for spending time with me in the last months, and wishing you a very Happy New Year. Venus is there to make things a little lighter and hopefully more frivolous too. For your FREE Daily Horoscope Thursday 31st December 2015 please see below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Along with the coming New Year, the astrological picture is also changing. In particular, Mercury is slowing down prior to turning retrograde in a few days time. Therefore, if you find yourself at loggerheads with someone, try to resolve things now while there's a chance to compromise. In a few days time it might not be so easy.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
If you've been waiting for the go-ahead regarding a plan or project, then today's lunar ties with Jupiter and Pluto suggest you may take matters into your own hands. There's a decisive quality showing up, perhaps because it's New Year's Eve and because there seem to be many more reasons to make a start than not to.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
What will 2016 hold for you, Gemini? Today's astrological snapshot suggests one thing - that one or two conflicts may need to play out before you're certain of the direction you're going to take. And, with Venus hinting at new alliances, you'll need to be certain that others really are on your side before you commit to anything firm.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Now that Uranus is forging ahead at the top of your chart, its tie to Pluto is quite intense right now. If you're ready to make a few changes, you might need to do so in a very considered way. Furthermore, today's Moon Jupiter connection and its tie to Pluto suggests you make a plan that works for you - and others too.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Mercury is keeping pace with ardent Mars as it prepares to enter its rewind phase. However, this suggests that a certain conversation or difference of views could go on and on and might turn into a real difficulty unless you take control of the situation now. If someone is being indecisive, encourage them to get a move on.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
With Venus now dancing through your home and family sector, this bodes well for a pleasant and upbeat start to 2016. If you're planning on spending this New Year's Eve doing a little entertaining at your place, then it should go down well. However, it will probably be even more fun if you avoid conversations on any sensitive topics.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
The Moon in a private part of your chart syncs with Jupiter and Pluto today, setting off a chain of thought around the deeper issues of life. Furthermore, with this being New Year's Eve, you might prefer to remain closer to home with family or a few close friends. Equally, if you can air what's on your mind, then so much the better.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
With Uranus making a tight right angle aspect to Pluto, you may be torn between blazing a trail or sticking with the status quo. Indeed, there can be many reasons why you'd be quite happy if a certain situation remained as it is. But then, ask yourself, would you miss out on an opportunity if you play too safe, Scorpio?
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
The presence of Venus in your sign could enable you to find the perfect balance between negotiation and persuasion. The ongoing and tricky angle between Mercury and Mars may not be helping your cause if it coincides with a breakdown in communication. Try and allow a little leeway, it could make quite a difference, Sagittarius.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Don't underestimate the power of your intuition, Capricorn. If you're caught in a situation and both alternatives seem equally viable, then you could be hard pressed to make a decision. However, with Venus poised between a stubborn Mercury Mars link, a persistent feeling of yours can help point you in the right direction.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
A Moon Pluto connection across the more sensitive areas of your chart can encourage you to look at what's motivating you, particularly in a situation that's really not working out. If you're prepared to look beneath the surface you might find that practical constraints may be overriding your feelings. If so, look at this again.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
It may be time to focus on your agenda rather than sacrifice your time and energy to others' plans. With glam Venus now present in your sector of goals and purpose, you may find it easier to discuss your hopes, and find that other more influential people can be really quite availing to what you have to say, Pisces.
