Your daily horoscope Saturday December 5 of 20205 Dec 2020, 00:01 By HELLO!
Aries21/03 - 20/04
It's easy to confuse what we 'need' with what we 'want'. At such times, it's good to think about why our desire is so strong; it can shed useful light on our motivation. We might ask ourselves if we're seeking something that's good for us; or if there's something we could learn from the experience. But usually, we're just too busy pursuing our goal to ask questions about why we're doing what we're doing. Right now, you can achieve almost anything. Make sure it's what you really want.
Taurus21/04 - 21/05
A recent event has made you doubt your resourcefulness; it's as if your bag of tricks has been depleted. If only you had more time, money, knowledge, insight and intuition (or any kind of combination of these assets) you'd be so much more prepared for the challenges you face. Yet, even though you don't have everything you want, you have exactly what you need. As Venus, your ruler, is empowered, it enables you to access fresh energy and enthusiasm - which is exactly what's required.
Gemini22/05 - 22/06
One of the first things you learn as a parent, is that saying 'no' often causes conflict. I learnt, very quickly, to invent all kinds of imaginary third-party authorities. 'I'm so sorry, but London Zoo won't let us borrow their monkeys. What a shame'. This kind of diplomatic white lie has saved the day on more than one occasion! Come to think of it, don't we rely on very similar tactics in our adult lives? What excuse are you giving yourself for not doing something? Honesty is the best policy, today.
Cancer23/06 - 23/07
We all know people who do things 'only because they were under the influence of alcohol'. Most of us have probably uttered those words. Yet they don't hold weight as an excuse; we obviously made the decision to drink, and keep drinking. So, even though we might feel as if we're passive victims, we're not. There are times when it suits us to defer responsibility for our actions... and our unconscious often takes the blame. If you follow your intuition, you can avoid the need to make excuses today.
Leo24/07 - 23/08
Sometimes we tell ourselves that we can't do something; or that we're not good at it. Other times, we feel confident, as if we're in our element. Of course, it's good to know where our limits and our talents lie; but when they categorically define our sense of self, there's a danger that we might push ourselves into a corner and limit our options. The powerful cosmic climate is offering you a chance to look beyond your normal boundaries. Seize it. Your horizon looks bright.
Virgo24/08 - 23/09
Some people don't seem to care about fashionable clothes or attitudes. As long as their approach isn't caused by depression or apathy, there's no problem with this. After all, we're free to live our lives as we wish. Other folk seem to be ahead of the game. They get so close to the cutting-edge that they sometimes get wounded. Where's the best place to be? As you're about to see, nothing beats being in the right place at the right time and having a great idea that fits the situation you're in.
Libra24/09 - 23/10
Nothing is black and white in astrology. Like all students of the esoteric arts, astrologers learn that good interpretation depends on intuition as well as knowledge. Since we're all born blessed with the potential to tap into our inner forces, as someone whose livelihood relies on this intangible sense, I'd be foolish to advise you to ignore your inner voice today. Yet I'm aware of how easily 'intuition' can be confused with fear, doubt or insecurity. Be critical, but don't write something off out of hand.
Scorpio24/10 - 22/11
While some people love chasing challenges, others get their thrills from watching scary films or riding the latest roller-coaster. We're drawn to the excitement of the chase, the adrenalin rush of being pushed to the limit, and the intensity of reaching into the depths of our resources. Part of you would like to find someone to take your current challenge out of your hands. Yet you've already taken great strides towards sorting it. With one final push, you'll be able to finish the job, and move on.
Sagittarius23/11 - 21/12
We don't have to tell our hearts to beat, our lungs to breathe or our eyes to blink. Somehow, our bodies carry out these vital processes without any thought from us. It's a miracle. What could be more extraordinary than this vibrant, vital gift we call 'life'? Yet, like everything, it has its ups and downs; moments when we feel delighted and moments when we wonder why we bother. You're facing examples of both. So, which will you focus on? Today, the cosmos nudges you in the right direction.
Capricorn22/12 - 20/01
When the destination is within sight, it can be tempting to move into another gear and speed up as we head towards the finish line. Yet, if you're already moving at speed, there are times when it's wiser to slow down; you don't want to risk overshooting the target. Today, as the powerful cosmic climate brings reassurance your way, it's time to go easy on yourself. You've already done most of the hard work. A gentler pace will allow other people to join you and help with the final approach.
Aquarius21/01 - 19/02
Why are some people so indecisive? Maybe, they're aware of the dangers of making public declarations of intent. In a world where past ideas are just a click away, they're fearful of being forced to justify an earlier opinion, or moment of madness. It's best, they reckon, to abstain entirely. It's impossible to put a price on pride. Yet, if you find yourself being inspired today, don't be afraid to nail your colours to the wall. If pride is all that's at stake, you can afford to lose some of that!
Pisces20/02 - 20/03
You feel duty bound to honour an arrangement. Despite the fact that your situation has changed, and that you no longer need to stick to your plans, you're finding it hard to liberate yourself. So, who are you worried about letting down? Today's powerful planetary forces are offering you a chance to reassess a promise you've made. You're right; this is an issue about trust. But, if you're honest about your reasons for backing down, other people might be relieved rather than annoyed.
