Have you been wanting to give back this season? A few things you can do 1)visit Adopt a Letter, if you are interested in playing Santa and answering one of the letters, make sure to visit the website. 2)Give back to your community, instead of gifts make a donation to Ukares - our very own charity. 3) Go see our Brits in LA member Lynn Helm - who is doing much better, coming on leaps and bounds - but needs stimulation and good conversation, so if you are around this Christmas week, I'm sure she would love a visit.

ARIES.
The financial situation for you could be getting a boost as early as mid week arrives 
Look for an opportunity to meet and be with new people maybe even a new romantic opportunity. 

TAURUS
The sun in your cousin sign of Capricorn starting this week coming will bring some stability in any area you need it even if it is only a mind set to turn around. 
Christmas week will start a new cycle for you altogether.

GEM
 Your boss Mercury has turned forward to complete what has transpired in your life this past few months. You will be travelling mentally or otherwise to a place that has memories in plenty.

 CAN
Movement is good for you and this week its all around you and in the family also.
Be strong and understand you can do what ever you wish, the clue is to make sure you don’t hold on to feeling long gone.

LEO
Emotional issues could hold you back from enjoying this last weeks of the year
So tackle what is to do and make it your priority and spend time relaxing not stressing on what is not possible.

VIR
As this week moves forward fast be sure you are ready and willing to get going on your particular plan for the holidays. .If it is a change in work or home this will work well  if you go with the flow not against it

LIB
With Mercury going forward in the part of your life that demands you make decisions its not easy as you are normally not always in balance. However if you leave things as they are currently you will be somewhat forced into it Not good !


SCOR
This past couple of weeks have been somewhat of a surprise for you in that life seems to be  showing up in many positive ways .Well are you surprised don’t be .Everything comes around when its your turn. Its your now take it!!

SAG
Just watch when your ruler Jupiter turns up in time for Christmas and in your financial area of life .This means be ready to make a move of any kind as he supports positive actions Maybe a gift of cash

CAP
This could be the month that it all comes together or you will lay it rest forever. It is entirely up to you how you make it work .So be sure you don’t let any body talk you out of something that can be very beneficial for you so listening to your inner voice is the clue.

AQU
You may have to dig deeper in your pocket this next couple of weeks if you have anything financially you are avoiding . Take care of it and look it as inevitable 
The reward is peace of mind and its time for that .

PISC
Jupiter moving in an emotional area for a few months ahead brings some old feelings to the surface.  Also do not be so open to another who would criticize you or your plans. The truth hurts some times so make sure when you speak it no one gets hurt!
