Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope, December 4 – Dec. 11, 2015

By Len Wallick

Aries (March 20-April 19)

Aries (March 20-April 19) — Most of us have another side we are reluctant to show, a vulnerable side. It would seem that your vulnerable side needs some love right now. At least to begin with, that love will probably have to come from you. Actually, that’s a good thing. After all, nobody understands your needs better than you do. The question is whether you can give yourself the same benefit of the doubt you would readily provide to another for whom you feel affection. The answer lies in going back to the basics. Among other things, love entails acceptance, trust and support. Therefore, do for yourself what you would want a lover to do for you. Give yourself a warm embrace every night. Tell yourself that you are good and worthy every morning. Invite your needs to stay in your heart and be what they are. – By Len Wallick

Taurus (April 19- May 20)

Taurus (April 19-May 20) — Participating in an endeavor with another (or others) has many fringe benefits. Among those benefits is, or should be, the right to negotiate. The next several weeks will be a good time to at least evaluate the extent to which you have pooled your efforts and resources in partnership. Is it proportional to the license you have received to influence the nature and course of these joint enterprises? If your role or position in a venture is uncomfortably subordinate, consider how it got that way. It could be that you have created or tacitly accepted a niche that is implicitly unequal. If that is the case, negotiations must begin with you asking for and taking on greater responsibility rather than simply agitating for change. Show your partner(s) what they have to gain, and they will be more likely to give. – By Len Wallick

Gemini (May 20- June 21)

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — Personal development does not always take place at a constant rate. Sometimes there are spurts of growth. The period just before a moment of abrupt maturation or attainment is often characterized by consistency and persistence, even when there are no discernible results. On the other hand, the stage immediately after a growth spurt of some sort typically requires some adjustment. It is important for you to know where you are in the course of your own evolutionary cycles now because it appears that you are about to move from one state to another. Therefore, if nothing seems to be going anywhere, keep up with your chosen practices. If you are somehow suddenly awkward, slow down. And if the world has suddenly opened like a flower, go with the flow for all you are worth. – By Len Wallick

Cancer (June 21- July 22)

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — It’s very appropriate for you to make your place of residence both comfortable and safe. Home can be more than just a place of refuge, sanctuary and nourishment, however. Where you abide can be lively and fun. You should not have to leave your abode to have a good time. Indeed, there is no better place to take a thrilling risk or two than in the security of your own space. It does not matter whether you live alone or with others. Nor should it make a difference whether you are hosting a party or in bed by yourself. There should be some way to find both joy and adventure under your own roof. Fortunately, your imagination is capable of being quite active and very creative right now if you put it to work. Think of some ways to have the time of your life where you live. – By Len Wallick

Leo (July 22- Aug. 23)

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — There are some who are fond of saying that “it’s later than you think.” Let them think that way. You don’t have to. If anything, your case is that’s it’s earlier than you think. Even if you are in the midst of a long haul of some sort, permit yourself to be refreshed by the distinct possibility that today really is the first day of the rest of your life. Allow yourself to at least imagine that you are only at the beginning of a great adventure, and consider what that would mean if it were true: that you have time on your side, perhaps in a way you never thought possible. It would also mean you have space to maneuver or even change direction altogether. Chances are if you give yourself the gift of positioning yourself at a starting line of some sort, it will allow you to make better decisions than if you see yourself approaching an end. – By Len Wallick

Virgo (Aug. 23- Sep. 22)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — Almost by definition, you have an earthy nature that should not (and ultimately cannot) be denied. You also have an inherently open mind. The combination gives you a greater proficiency than most for exploring the full range of your potential for sexual satisfaction. Paradoxically, your innate contact with the fecund Earth can often result in an over-emphasis on propriety. Similarly, your supple intellect is entirely capable of over-thinking. You may have also run into some trouble with inhibitions lately. Fortunately, however, the remainder of this year should be prime time to get your groove back. If you already have an established intimate relationship, ask about pushing the envelope a bit to liven things up. If you are without a sexual partner right now, try being a bit more risqué with yourself. – By Len Wallick

Libra (Sep. 22 - Oct. 23)

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — Being misunderstood is not a pleasant thing to go through. After a certain point, however, you have to be philosophical about what other people think so as not to lose yourself. You may be at that point now, especially if you are feeling a need to please others in order to be truly content and fulfilled. Yes, we all have a lot in common. In addition, your ideals and sense of fairness do you credit. Even so, not everybody has the same priorities as you. Therefore, if you cannot please everybody, don’t think yourself a failure. Rather, think of yourself as having delineated where differences between you and others lie and what your own values are. If you can do simply that you will have more clearly defined yourself. With that definition you can finally begin to work and create to your own satisfaction to the same degree you have considered the satisfaction of others. – By Len Wallick

Scorpio (Oct. 23- Nov. 22)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Let yourself up. As a matter of fact, let the word ‘up’ be your mantra for a while. Take charge of your inner environment, and experiment with excluding the word ‘down’ from your vocabulary for the rest of the year except where absolutely necessary. That should be long enough for your outer environment to turn a corner and allow you to begin tidying up, as if to accept better times as your guest. It’s worth a try. When you awaken, try telling yourself to go beyond getting up. Encourage yourself to be up. When you are trying to resolve even the most intractable and discouraging challenges, envision yourself as cleaning up to make your circumstances better (as opposed to facing an odious and interminable chore). Finally, when your hard work and determination have you feeling most worn and weary, remind yourself to look up and notice the sky is still there. – By Len Wallick

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 22)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — If the sky is right, you are now settled into a smoother routine than was your situation only three months ago. If that’s not true for you, put on your thinking cap. Next, set aside all doubts about what can and cannot be done as the next order of business. Think as if anything were possible for you, even if it does not seem that way. Then, simply ruminate about the single most simple and easy thing you can do to make your life more simple and easy. What your free-range thinking comes up with may be something you don’t want to do. Let that be okay — because after all, you have a choice. That way, if you do decide to eschew the simple and easy in favor of a more difficult but palatable path, you will at least have come to a greater understanding of what makes you tick — and that alone will come in handy sooner than thinking can reveal. – By Len Wallick

Capricorn (Dec. 22- Jan. 20)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — For astrologers, your element is earth. What you might want to meditate on right now, however, is what it means to be in your element. You have been around long enough to know when you feel most confident and relaxed. You also have enough experience to know what fields of endeavor allow you to demonstrate impressive competence yet also experience authentic fulfillment. Once you are clear about when and where you are in your element, you can begin making some plans to spend more time there. Don’t put pressure on yourself — you don’t need any more of that. Conceive of moving more fully into your element as a gradual process that should rightfully take years to complete. That way not only can you make adjustments as you go, but also change course altogether should you have a change of heart. – By Len Wallick

Aquarius (Jan. 20- Feb. 19)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Yes, some might be judging you unfairly right now. If you are fair to them, however, you probably must admit you have given others some small reason to judge you. This does not mean there is anything wrong with you, so don’t compound your situation by judging yourself. Neither, in all probability, do you need fixing. It might do simply to be more transparent about your situation. Admittedly, revealing more of your circumstances and taking responsibility for them could mean swallowing your pride, or even risking embarrassment. Even so, it is almost certainly better to take a chance that depends on the understanding and compassion of others than to maintain the unsustainable, doing damage to yourself or your cause in the bargain. Give the truth a chance to set you free, and it probably will. – By Len Wallick

Pisces (Feb. 19- March 20)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Travel beckons, but not in the conventional sense. For sure, traversing greater distances than your usual commutes and opening yourself up to new experiences should be in the cards for you sometime around the middle of next year, maybe earlier. For now, however, it’s time travel that is waiting for you at the curb with an open door. You may argue that time travel is the stuff of science fiction, but all of the work you have done on yourself in recent years makes a trip down memory lane not only safer but also potentially more productive than at any other time in your life. The same labors of loving yourself with diligence and purpose for so long have also made you better able to visit possible futures more clearly than most people can ever do. So when you get the time, take some time to explore time itself — and enjoy a payoff that has been long in coming. – By Len Wallick
