Align Your Holiday Season by the Stars
As we all know, keeping calm during the holidays can be a significant challenge. The stress of social and family obligations pile up requiring we add more to our already tight schedules and to make matters worse, much worse, is the added stress of trying to ensure everyone has a good time.
Astrology can help. Knowing what’s in store for us, and keeping a few astro-tricks in your travel pack can help you not only keep calm, but truly enjoy yourself and appreciate the full spirit and joy the holidays can bring.
From November 10 through the first half of 2012, Mars is in Virgo. This means that good planning is important. Make lists, arrangements, and plans ahead of time so that you’re not caught off-guard. This holiday season, too, punctuality is important. You may not want to be first to arrive, but don’t be too late either!
Jupiter is retrograde in Taurus meaning that we all will need to make do with more limited resources. The flip side of this is that expectations for gift giving will be lower. Gifts that show thoughtfulness, creativity, and resourcefulness will be very highly appreciated, as will those that are hand-made and crafty.
Saturn has been in Libra for a while and will remain there through most of next year, focusing on our relationships. Staying on good terms with friends and family is a sure way of being able to count on them for support during the rough moments. Also, reciprocity is key. People this holiday season will expect to receive in equal measure what they give, so having a sense of what is expected beforehand can save you from embarrassing situations.
For many of us, the most stressful events of the holidays are the family get-togethers. They put together in one room lots of different facets of our family DNA, and some of them get along as well as fire and water. Speaking of which, one of astrology’s most effective tools is in knowing the elements of signs of the people around you. This will provide you with guidelines to significantly reduce stress because you are able to relate to them more effectively. Here are some good tips to follow:
The Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius
Like their name implies, these people can be the spark plugs for any event. They are creative, need to generate ideas, and need to feel their ideas are appreciated. Generally, they like to be at the center of attention. This can be entertaining or not, but that’s the way they are. Regardless, they are warm and generous with those within their orbit.
The Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn
Earthy people are practical meat and potatoes type people and so are easy to relate to. They don’t appreciate snooty airs, and will successfully beat back any challenges in their status. Many Earth sign people need to feel useful. If they find themselves just standing or sitting around, they tend to feel uncomfortable and look for something to occupy them. Understanding this can be a huge help if you find the right worthwhile task for them to enjoy.
The Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius
Generally speaking, the air signs are extremely sociable, so you shouldn’t have trouble with them. Just let them loose and they can work the crowd to their satisfaction. One thing to note about these people is that they are often very emotionally invested in their ideas about things. It is unlikely you’ll be able to change their minds in just a few short hours, so it is usually best to simply smile and nod.
The Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces
The water signs need to nurture and care for others. Sometimes this can come across as meddling or in extreme cases (especially from a parent) as smothering. They don’t really mean to be controlling, and really are coming from a place of trying to do good. It’s usually best to let them do what they must and only step in when things get out of control. “We teach people how to treat us.” – Shyla ext. 5431
