Mercury Enters Capricorn: Wisdom Prevails
Last week, Mercury left the hotheaded energy of Sagittarius and moved into the earthy terrain of Capricorn, where it will remain through January 19. Mercury is now no longer in a swapped-signs dialogue with Jupiter in Gemini, which thankfully takes some of the pressure off communication and makes it less likely that you'll shoot your mouth off without thinking first!
Although the movement of quicksilver Mercury into the sign of wise elder Capricorn may at first feel a bit stodgy, you'll find that if you work with it, you'll recognize the tremendous value of applying more caution to your thoughts and verbal expressions. This is a time of contraction after Jupiter's strong influence of expansion, so instead of aiming to shoot between the eyes with words, now is an ideal time to consider long-term repercussions regarding your integrity.

Maya Calendar -- What Will Happen After December 21?Read More »from Maya Calendar -- What Will Happen After December 21?
Some believe that, once the Maya Calendar expires this Friday, December 21, life as we know it will cease to exist. At the same time, others argue that there will be a profound shift in consciousness -- anyone who reaches a higher level will flourish, while those who don't will suffer.
Scholars, however, claim that each of these views are a misinterpretation of the ancient Maya texts, arguing instead that there is no simple way of equating Maya time to the modern Western calendar. Furthermore, even if one phase of the Maya calendar does end, then another will start.
So why all the disaster theories?

Amp up your role as hostess or host this year by throwing your best holiday bash yet! Based on your Sun sign, here's a sleighful of holiday hosting ideas sure to resonate with your nature.
Keep things short and spicy by serving cocktails and hors d'oeuvres rather than a formal sit-down meal. Your fiery nature loves activity, so be sure to create space for a dance floor as you decorate in bright colors.
Quality counts, so keep your guestlist short so you can splurge on decadent drinks and snacks. A low-key get-together ensures you'll have time to catch up with friends. Make sure your party space is comfortable with soft lighting -- and even softer pillows!
Since you're a social butterfly, host a drop-in party -- and encourage guests to bring a friend. Deck your place out with wild decor, and keep the music edgy but low to encourage conversation.
Quality time with your inner circle matters most, so host a cozy dinner party. Home-cooking fits your nurturing

How Your Sun Sign Handles the HolidaysRead More »from How Your Sun Sign Handles the Holidays
Now that Thanksgiving has passed, we're now into the heart of the season of family gatherings. For some, this is cause for celebration; for others, great dread. Even the healthiest of families can experience tension when everyone is again thrown into one place. How does your Sun sign handle the holidays?
Aries' usual spontaneity is a bit squelched throughout the holiday season, for they may find that family members are more defensive or critical than before. They need to be less of an entertainer and instead focus on trying to pull everyone together.
In their own placid way, Taurus is able to keep everyone calm. They don't look like they're doing much, but they wield a positive influence that's very persuasive. Their strength of personality invariably wins their loved ones over.
Gemini is thrilled to have a wide range of conversations to be part of. At first, they may need to push themselves to join the party. Once they warm up, however, everyone is bound to enjoy their company.
