This time could bring you an embarrassment of riches! This could be literally true (Santa might be especially kind to you this year. ;-) Or your riches might be social (a wealth of friends and family), or perhaps spiritual (an abundance of peace and warmth). You might be blessed with passionate ambition that paves the way to a new job, project or opportunity. Whatever its form, you're likely to find that there's a lot of it, and it may even come suddenly, unexpectedly or in an unusual form. So the question is: what do you want? What do you believe is possible in your life? What do you feel capable of accomplishing? It's important to get your direction into clear focus, but there's a "factor X" here too—something that can't be entirely predicted or willed into being.

One possibility is that what you really want may be more complex than you realize. We are more than just a single ambition or desire or urge. If you've been focusing hard on one ambition, without much success, consider the idea that other parts of you with other desires and needs might be trying to pull you in a different direction. This could leave you a bit stuck in the middle between these different parts of you. Another possibility is that there might be something about your situation that you've been blocking out. Perhaps you don't want to acknowledge it, in the hope that if you don't acknowledge it then it doesn't have to be real. There's a lot to be said for focusing your intentions so clearly that doubt falls away, but sometimes there are things that simply must be dealt with, and trying not to see them could sabotage your efforts anyway.

However, there is a bounty of wisdom, imagination, ability and opportunity available to you. It can help you manifest what you want to achieve. Just be sure you know what it is you really want. And be careful what you ask for. Then celebrate your new beginning! May the blessings of the season be yours!

Lunar Forecast for the

FULL MOON in CANCER

The Lunar Forecasts give Daily Horoscopes a greater context.

Your emotions may be a bit more open and fluid than usual right now. How you experience this will depend largely on how comfortable you are with your feeling nature. Do you welcome your feelings, emotional responses to events and empathy toward others? Or do you prefer to close that part of yourself off, protecting yourself from heartbreak, hurt and vulnerability? There's no right or wrong answer here; it's about what works best for your personal needs right now. So if you're at home in that tender, inner part of you, this could be a time of great creativity, human connection and emotional openness. If not, it can be a time when you find yourself responding to events, people and situations from an unusually personal place inside you. If you avoid your feeling nature, seeing it as weak or dangerous or merely sentimental, it might seem like you're surrounded by others who are a bit lost in that area inside themselves.

It's true that our feeling nature can make us vulnerable and open to being hurt. That's why it's so important to have a solid sense of boundaries. By the same token, while having a strong sense of self, discipline and order can give you a healthy foundation that supports you emotionally, too much of that "strength" can make you rigid, unreceptive and blocked off from an essential part of yourself (and that of others too). So this is a time when you can observe how well you are able to find a good balance between being in control versus being sensitive and open to the world around you. What needs fine-tuning? Do you need to let people in a bit more? Or maybe you would benefit from sharing your feelings more instead of keeping them silently inside. Do you say yes far too quickly and then find you're drowning in someone else's drama? Perhaps it's time to learn better boundaries and give yourself permission to say no.

Whatever change would help you grow right now, choose it wisely. Your intention is likely to pack a stronger punch than you expect it to. When thinking about what you need to feel happy, secure and safe, be specific and realistic. In other words, don't use it merely as an exercise in ego-enhancing fantasy, but take it seriously. What would really and truly help you feel more trusting, relaxed and loved inside? If the answer that comes to mind seems so far away it's unreachable, then start small. What could give you a bit of that in the next day or so? In the next couple of weeks? In the next few months? What would it look like? How would you know you were feeling happier or safer? Would you feel differently in your body? Would you act differently? Think about a time in the past when you felt that way (even a little). What allowed you to feel protected, nurtured, comfortably connected to the world? Now: what can you do in the next 24 hours that could give you a taste of that feeling? In the next couple of weeks? In the next few months? Okay: now write it down and stick it on the fridge (or wherever it will remind you).
