By MARALLYN BEN MOSHETIP FOR THE WEEK: Happy Hanukka, Merry Christmas and a wonderful, healthy, happy New Year.
Moderation is the watchword for this week. It doesn't mean you won't have fun, but it means that at the end of the day you will be able to remember just how much fun you really had.
DECEMBER 22 - JANUARY 19
Things are finally beginning to look brighter, and by Friday evening your mood will improve. You have been rather short-tempered lately and although your family is trying to be helpful and stay out of your way, it is difficult when you are looking for a fight. Calm down. Enjoy your blessings and remember just how lucky you really are. Before you take on a new project, don't forget that you are already overextended.
HINT: Your relationship with a sibling is still rather tricky, but you are making headway.
JANUARY 20 - FEBRUARY 18
This is a great week for you to have fun and enjoy yourself with good friends and family. You have so much to offer and the time has come for you to relax and put up your feet a bit. The middle part of this week is perfect for spending a little money on yourself, so don't hesitate to open up your wallet and buy something special. Personal relationships are on hold for the time being, so keep busy and let your intuition guide you.
HINT: Your family is always there waiting for you with open arms.
FEBRUARY 19 - MARCH 20
Your generosity of spirit will not be forgotten nor will all the little things you do for those you love. Even though they don't always tell you, they care deeply for you and about you. Someone you work with is grateful for all your help but needs a little more space right now. Pay attention to what you are doing so that you will not lock your keys inside your car or walk out of the house without turning off the stove.
HINT: There is someone you know professionally who is interested in being part of your inner circle.
MARCH 21 - APRIL 19
It's not always easy to remain calm when all around you emotions are flaring. Don't give up just yet, as the last laugh will most definitely be yours. Take some time off this week to socialize with a water sign. You will not regret it. The last few days of this week will see you working on a project that is near and dear to your heart, so clear your desk and get ready. When in doubt, do as the experts do and save
time and energy.
HINT: Be careful about spending your money foolishly on things you don't need.
APRIL 20 - MAY 20
The time has come for you to do a bit of housecleaning and decide just which of your friends really deserve your love and trust. In the past few months you have been hurt more than once by someone who professed to sincerely care. Find a quiet corner some time this week and think about your next project and how you are going to go about attaining your goal.
HINT: When dealing with a neighbor, smile and nod your head, and then do what you wanted to do in the first place.
MAY 21 - JUNE 21
There is a lot going on behind the scenes, and this time you will be best served by not getting involved. Soon you will have more information and until then, keep busy and don't listen to idle gossip. You need to get away, but family obligations keep you close to home. Monday and Tuesday are perfect days for any and all creative projects that will bring you personal satisfaction and joy. Before starting out on a trip, double check your plans, reservations and gas in the car.
HINT: Pick up the phone and call an elderly member of your family. This person honestly loves you and misses you.
JUNE 22 - JULY 22
You tend to worry and brood, and this is the week for turning over a new leaf - for embracing tomorrow and giving thanks for yesterday. There are so many people around you who love and respect you, and the time has come for you to begin to recognize just how special you really are. Money and finances are still on your mind, but you are making headway and forging ahead.
HINT: Not everyone near you deserves your love and respect. Don't sell yourself short.
JULY 23 - AUGUST 22
You would love to just walk away from everything and forget about all your responsibilities, but you know that that is impossible. Instead of looking at the glass as being half empty, stand tall and recognize just how much the glass is full. You won't be sorry if you take a few moments on Wednesday and do something special for someone you love. HINT: People far away are talking about you and miss you very much.
AUGUST 23 - SEPTEMBER 22
Stop making lists. Stop looking at how much you give versus how much you receive in return, and you will begin to appreciate just how much you have and how many people honestly care about you. Family is always important, and this week you will have a conversation with someone younger than you who looks up to you. Your relationship with a water sign isn't always smooth, but it is never boring.
HINT: Try to put a little more balance in your life and catch up on your rest.
SEPTEMBER 23 - OCTOBER 23
The most important thing you can do for yourself right now is to calm down and trust yourself. There are some things that are way beyond your control, and worrying about them will not help. Besides, nothing is more important than your health. So begin sticking to your diet and get a little more exercise. It will make all the difference. You know who you can trust and who to stay away from, so why do you continue to make the same mistakes?
HINT: An older sibling is so grateful for everything you have done for him/her.
OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 21
This is an excellent week for pampering yourself and those you love. You have so much to give, and all who come into contact with you appreciate having you in their lives. Before you openly discuss your financial situation, make sure you have done all your homework and are finished talking to the experts. Minor problems at home will remain minor as long as you don't fan the flames.
HINT: The time is not yet ripe for you to make your move, so take baby steps for the time being.
NOVEMBER 22 - DECEMBER 21
Problems from the past need to be taken care of as soon as possible in order for you to be able to forge ahead and get on with your life. There is so much you wish to do and not nearly enough hours in the day, so get a secretary, tackle the most urgent problems first and learn from your mistakes. Be careful while traveling this week and try to consolidate all your shopping to one or two days.
HINT: Tuesday and Wednesday are perfect days for entertaining at home.
