ARIES You are really helpful at the next few social events. You organize a most impressive Christmas party where pleasure is the name of the game. TAURUS Luck is on your side, so don’t he- sitate to ask your family to contri- bute to a group lottery ticket. You may also realize a family project with your loved ones. GEMINI You don’t always show your sensi- tivity. However, if there is any ten- sion at all in the family, you man- age to placate everyone once and for all. CANCER You bring together family as well as friends. Over the holidays, you successfully unite family members who do not always get along. LEO There is a good chance that you’ll be hosting various receptions and lavishing plenty of attention on your loved ones. Even as a guest, you are generous with your help. VIRGO You enjoy large gatherings this year. You are also the centre of attention when you do some crazy things or make certain comments. LIBRA You are open to the idea of discove- ring new cultures. A person of diffe- rent origins than yours might be pre- sent during the upcoming festivities. SCORPIO You’re a real chatterbox and you are the one who can cheer people up and get them in the party mood. Be careful and practice awareness in all your comings and goings. SAGITTARIUS You have access to some extra money during the Christmas sea- son. You are very generous and you warm the hearts of those who truly need it. CAPRICORN You are in search of parties to go to. You feel the need for physical activity, to have a change of air, and especially to be surrounded by people. You suggest some great ideas to enhance the fun. AQUARIUS You could very well miss out on a few hours of sleep, so try to go to bed early if you can. Otherwise you won’t be able to celebrate Chris- tmas Eve with your family. PISCES You make considerable efforts to bring people together and unite the whole family. You devote yourself to waiting on everyone. Fatigue and a few sniffles could be coming your way.
