Horoscopes for Dec. 26, 2013

Attention is a kind of payment. How much focus are you giving to something you don’t even want? The Libra moon reminds us that value is not intrinsic. The cosmic scales tilt with our opinions, and each person has his or her own accounting system. Consider that there is no difference between an object of attachment and an object of aversion.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When desire is fed, the inner animal is satisfied – but not the greedy human mind, which, once sated, only develops bigger appetites. You’ll have to convince the others to relax and be reasonable, and they may not listen.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You really can boost your immune system by thinking positive thoughts. But first you have to neutralize the negativity being offered up by your critical inner voice. It’s as easy as saying “shhh . . .”

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You don’t know enough to tackle the project you’re considering, but that’s not a good enough reason to pass on it. You’ll learn. You always do. In fact, you can’t help yourself. You prefer to be constantly learning.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you expend extraordinary energy doing a seemingly ordinary thing, you’ll elevate this aspect of daily life to the realm of “art form.” This is the key to good living these days.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Instinct has led you to your current pursuit. You’ll wake up ready to focus on a fresh initiative, though you may not know until after you get to work the significance of what you’re doing.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have helpers and advisers, but ultimately you’re the one who will bring a grand plan to fruition. You are tuned in to everyone and everything that can lead to your success.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You may not be able to remove the forces that oppose you, but once you accept that you are better for having to contend with them, you will start to see the unique advantages of your position.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your encouragement is potent, and those you cheer for will be moved to act confidently and accomplish what they didn’t think they could. Use some of that supportiveness on yourself.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Look deeper into the things that intrigue and fascinate you. There’s a reason you are so mysteriously drawn by these pursuits, and they will connect you to good fortune.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re a cosmic favorite these days, so be sure to want things for yourself and for others. Why not be greedy for love, goodness and health? One of your minor but very fond wishes will come true.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Despite an absence of obvious constraint, impediment or interference, you still may feel that you’re not entirely free. Consider exactly why you don’t feel at liberty to say and do as you wish, and you’ll be closer to freedom.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Get focused, and you’ll be astounded at what you can accomplish. With unflagging energy, you’ll tackle the primary things you wanted to get finished before the end of the year.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You only dish out what you would like to eat. So your offerings to life are delicious, and life repays you by feeding you all that your heart, mind and body needs. What you learn about your history and family will impact your plans. Something you own will be valued at a high price, and you’ll get a chance to cash out. Gemini and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 28, 21, 4, 17 and 13.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Other people sound so passionate about their aims, and I haven’t ever found anything that motivates me to want to work hard. Can a 36-year-old Cancer be successful without having a passion?”

Some believe that the most successful people are intensely passionate about their interest and it’s this passion that motivates individuals to ever higher levels of accomplishment. There are also those who consider passion to be mythological. They note that victory often goes to the person who has the highest tolerance for boredom. In other words, when the work gets hard or tedious, the one who keeps on working anyway ultimately gets the reward.

Ruled by the ever changing moon, Cancer is a sign noted for shifting with the moods of the hour. With that flexible attitude come changing desires and aspirations. Accept that it’s just a part of your makeup. The plus side is that it keeps you in the moment. Now you also must develop the emotional muscle tone to keep working in spite of your changing moods and interests. The “what” doesn’t really matter as much as your commitment to do what it takes to get to your original goal. Do it, and not because it’s your passion, but because you said you would.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: As Jon Snow of “Game of Thrones,” Kit Harington has escaped tyrannical kings, monstrous wild animals and zombies. Soon this Capricorn challenge-seeker will battle a volcano in the upcoming action adventure film “Pompeii.” Sagittarius and Capricorn energy figure prominently in Harington’s natal chart, as does the Pisces moon, which guides so many successful actors.
