Read your Sun Sign and Rising Sign for some clues as to what would make a great vacation for you!
ARIES: The Mars energy always goes with you wherever you go. However, a calm, quiet resort would certainly be a good contrast to your usual day. You tend to pack in a lot of activity and excitement. You may enjoy exploring the back roads and finding something new and different. But instead of always looking for some excitement going on, you would really benefit from a complete change of scene.
TAURUS: It’s usually a tropical island or a cruise for you, where someone else is planning the activities and serving the meals. You want to sit and recharge and just release your tension. You often bring the family, but try to have one short period of time along without the kids. Pass up the temptation to vacation with business friends. Try to break the rut of always going to the same place every year. Explore somewhere new every so often and try new places to eat. See how great you feel!
GEMINI: You dream about your vacations, imagining the ‘perfect’ trip. You tend to make plans and then change them or add in another stop, because your ruler Mercury lends some changeability to your nature. However, this also affects others who are going with you. You like taking tours, but it would be good to stay longer in a place so you can absorb what you are seeing more fully. You like to read and also chat with those you meet. Rent a bike or motorscooter and see things along the way.
CANCERIANS: You really love to travel but usually like to keep some days to relax at home. You might take short trips, returning to sleep in your own comfy bed. Some take half the day just getting out the door and wonder why they don’t see as much as they had hoped. Plan a start time and take time to choose where you would like to eat since you are a foodie. You need to plan ahead and not get too emotional if things don’t always go as you’d like. Travel near water or somewhere romantic. A cruise would be perfect!
LEO: You love warmth, being a child of the Sun. Also, you love bright lights and sparkling people. Discipline yourself to save the money to enjoy the comforts of a lovely, luxurious vacation. You would love to rub shoulders with celebrities and lots of night life. Getting a good suntan on a beautiful beach suits you. Give thought to the clothes, jewelry and shoes that you will need, because you are inclined to over-pack. Allow your family or co-travelers to have a say in where they would like to go.
VIRGO: You tend to wait too long to accumulate the funds or the time to take a real vacation. But when its time to go, you really might surprise your friends with the great trip you plan, like maybe a safari in Africa or an exotic flight to some tropical island. You will feel you are making up for lost time! Take a lot of pictures and enjoy some extravagances. A new side of you will emerge and then later you will enjoy reminiscing about your trip for many years.
LIBRA: You have trouble deciding where to go and then might still change your mind, or sometimes circumstances cause you to cancel your plans. If someone raves about a place they have visited, you are influenced to go and see if for yourself. Do plan relaxation time and forget about those tours that cause you to rush. Go where you can be waited on and pampered. Your ruler Venus wants you to have all possible comforts, including fine food and interesting companionship. Bring a lot of money, you’ll need it!
SCORPIO: You need a vacation that provides beneficial changes to your usual routine with results that last all year. You can fall in love with a special place and even have a holiday romance if thats your style. You plan dramatic, intense vacations with many adventures. Save unnecessary emotional upsets by realizing that vacation romances are usually just that. Choose holiday companions with discretion. Foreign countries attract you and music festivals and theater performances. Music and drama are a great relief for your moody and secretive nature. Your ruler Pluto seeks vacations that may have some danger involved somewhere on the trip but take care not to return all tired out.
SAGITTARIUS: You love action-packed vacations and participating in or attending sports events. The mountains and rugged outdoors attract you. You require challenges and physical activity on your trip. Try not to be impatient with family members or friends who need time to enjoy some relaxing time on a beach. Take separate vacations occasionally. Being so outgoing, you like good companionship and will meet people easily when you travel.
CAPRICORN: You need to leave your work behind and don’t read email or answer work related calls while you are away unless you absolutely must. You look so forward to escaping work but often bring projects along that need completing. You need a relaxing vacation almost more than any other sign. Something often holds you back from fully enjoying yourself and this is the Saturn-influence on your sign. You are practical and don’t always want to spend money on frivolity, which can impede full enjoyment for you. But it’s money well-spent for you because you are such a hard worker, that you deserve a break.
AQUARIUS: You are probably the most spontaneous traveler of the zodiac. Uranus your ruler often erupts suddenly in your life and being a humanitarian, you may find yourself visiting or helping a sick friend or looking after a family member. This frequently cuts your vacation time short for your own relaxation. Sometimes you have to forego your original plans due to unexpected events. As you age, you will spend more time relaxing at home, but its better to get away and unwind where there is peace and quiet and also meet interesting people who will provide an interesting discussion with you.
PISCES: You like to plan fabulous vacations with romantic appeal and water nearby. You like new places and can enjoy yourself no matter where you go. You don’t want to be cramped and so will choose spacious accommodations. You like a mix of pleasant company and also lots of time for quiet introspection. You are quite impressionable so choose your vacation spot wisely. You always meet people and you know money spent on vacations can save money spent on doctors. Vacations are so therapeutic for Pisces that they need to get away as often as possible.
Doesn’t this put you in the mood to plan a trip somewhere?
MERCURY IS GOING RETROGRADE ON DECEMBER 19th!!
With Christmas coming and so many electronics and mechanical things being purchased as gifts, you do not want to get these types of products during a Mercury Retrograde, nor even 2 days before or after in the shadow period. Mercury goes Direct on January 7th. Hopefully you have already made your purchases for Christmas.
You could be lucky, but frequently communication devices and other electronic equipment purchased during these Retrograde periods do not work properly or need to be returned for some reason. This applies also to cars and many mechanical products.
Another thing is that Mercury Retrograde often delays travel and causes all kinds of miscommunications to occur. Do not sign contracts unless you check them over very thoroughly before signing; sometimes there is no choice! Often messages get forgotten, or folks forget to call you back. So, if you don’t get a return call, please make the call again.
Avoid December 17 – January 9th and even allow another day or two on each end to be sure! I will definitely be going out tomorrow to buy a new phone. I would not have waited even until now but I just learned there is a great sale going on so I want to take advantage of that!
Let me know if you find this to be true if you do shop during these dates. I always appreciate feedback!
CHRISTMAS IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!
Why can’t we hold on to the wonderful feelings of love, joy and kindness all year?
Wishing all my readers a blessed Christmas and a beautiful holiday season however you celebrate!
On Christmas, December 25th this year, we will have a Full Moon in the sign of chatty, communicative Gemini. The last time we had a full moon on Christmas was in 1977!
So, with families joining together to celebrate the holiday, be aware that full moons bring out the crazies! Be patient and tolerant and drive carefully. Lunatic is a word derived from Luna, the name of the moon and when the moon is full, it’s in full energy phase. It has a strong effect on the tides and even on the fluids in our body; and this time will also be affecting what people say. You might have to bite your tongue more than once! Please be aware of the energies out there and make this a happy, serene holiday for yourself and others.
The moon moves into the sign of Cancer later in the day, a very family oriented sign. How perfect!
WISHING ALL MY READERS A MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY, PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR 2016!!
Dads are special people in our lives because they love us unconditionally. Our dads strive to fulfill all the wishes and desires of their children. Father’s Day provides us with a chance to thank and appreciate our dads for everything they have done and will continue to do so until their last breath. As such, you should not let this opportunity slip away. Father’s Day is a wonderful occasion to make your dad feel special and show him that he deserves the best in life.
Remembering my own dad today and enjoying this picture from my wedding day in 1964. By January, 1965 my dad had passed away. We never know when it will be our last opportunity to say I love you!
