    Venus Retrograde in Capricorn: Love in Review
    Even though a brand-new year is nearly upon us, the love planet, Venus, continues its reverse motion until January 30, meaning that romance may be delayed as you roll into 2014. Rather than start a new romance or begin a new chapter with someone you love, there's a good chance you'll be drawn to reconnect with a former lover or perhaps revisit old relationship rituals.

    It may be difficult to escape the ghosts of relationships past now, but you don't necessarily have to go back to the way things were. As you reminisce about bygone love, think of it as a way to learn from the past. If you made a mistake, forgive yourself and look to the future; if you didn't get what you wanted, reflect on what you could do differently next time.

    Put yourself in a position to make the most of your relationship with a free sample Love For Two In the New Year Reading!

    With Venus retrograde in Capricorn for the next four-and-a-half weeks, clear boundaries and expectations are essential to attaining

    Your Sun Sign's Approach to New Year's Eve
    Everyone reacts differently to New Year's Eve and all the festivities they portend. Some jump at any chance to party; others wince at the thought of all that chatter and noise. How you approach the last night of the year is greatly influenced by the temperament of your Sun sign.

    Leo tops this list for wanting to shine, sparkle, and fizz. Winter isn't their favorite time of year, but they'll never miss out on all the social occasions of the season. If they're throwing the party, you can expect glittering decorations and top-quality food and drink. And the Lion will be dressed to the nines -- especially on New Year's Eve!

    Your Ideal Holiday Look -- According to Your Animal Sign!

    The holidays are here and we know that means: Parties! Even the budget-conscious will probably want to pick up a few new pieces for the festivities. Every store window tells us what to wear, but the fact is, the style that makes you glitter is based on more than passing trends, or even your body type.

    After all, not everyone can pull off a leopard-print cocktail dress under the mistletoe -- but if you're a Tiger, your wild side may be your best side. Your animal sign can tell you a surprising amount about not only your own personal kind of charm, but how your wardrobe can showcase your natural essence this holiday season!

    Rat
    Perfectly polished Rat should always dress for success, and jazzy executive touches are appropriate, no matter how formal (or informal) your event. It's the details that set you apart, such as a silk neckerchief tied smartly, with matching shoes and clutch. Coordinate jewelry and hair accessories for that put-together finish.

    Get a Holiday Mood-Lift from the Zodiac

    The holiday party season is here, but you're feeling inclined to hide away and close yourself off from the world. However, if you can key into your Sun sign's core energy, you'll find a doorway into a better, healthier frame of mind for the holidays.
