31 December 2014, Nirapad News :
We begin this last day of the year with our feet on the ground, but our restrained pragmatism turns into exuberant optimism as we draw closer to the New Year’s Eve celebrations. The comfort-seeking Taurus Moon reflects our need for the security of familiar surroundings, especially as she harmonizes with four planets in earthy Capricorn. However, the Moon forms creative squares with the buoyant Mars-Jupiter opposition that’s exact tomorrow.
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You may be known for your ability to act spontaneously rather than planning ahead; nevertheless, you can also be quite patient if you want something badly enough. Although your current desires are strong, you’re not in too much of a hurry now. In fact, you might even feel lazy enough today to luxuriate in the status quo. But don’t get too complacent because a rising tide of enthusiasm is raising the stakes in the game. Your current creative efforts are more important than you think; embrace the future by initiating action in the present moment.
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)
People frequently lean on you because you seem as steady as a rock. You’re clear about what you want and most likely have a plan in mind as to how to get it. There’s not much that can alter your course today and others seek security in the strength of your convictions. But your current stability depends on you sticking close to the facts, so don’t waste brainpower attempting to solve the mysteries of the universe. Keep your life simple now and save the philosophizing and dreaming for another time.
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)
You find an ironic kind of pleasure in being so practical now because you want everyone to acknowledge your emotional stability. You are often the one who pipes up with a witty comeback or a clever answer whether or not it has anything to do with the current conversation. However, you aren’t interested in demonstrating your cerebral acrobatics today. Taking a few deep breaths is an effective delaying tactic, giving you the chance to contemplate your answers before you speak. Sometimes the best way to show others you care requires no words at all.
Cancer Horoscope (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Although working closely with others today sounds like a good idea, participating in group activities is complicated by dynamic emotional entanglements. Your sense of loyalty to your friends and colleagues makes it tough to do anything that adds to the tension. Nevertheless, it’s not helpful to anyone if you try to avoid an uncomfortable subject. Fortunately, you can still be a team player now, even while saying what’s on your mind. Breaking the silence in a gentle and compassionate manner clears the way for more constructive dialogue and stronger bonds.
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You could be counting your chickens before they hatch, even if you’re not receiving much positive feedback today. You have temporarily stepped off the emotional roller-coaster and you’re finally getting your bearings. Make use of the current calm by integrating the wild ups and downs you recently experienced rather than stirring up new excitement. Although there is great potential for this to be a day of relaxation, don’t forget to buckle up; there will still be more thrills before your ride is actually over.
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Your nerves may be on edge if your day doesn’t unfold according to your well-conceived plans. Even if there is still time to finish your work, a nagging concern gnaws away in the back of your mind. You could work yourself into an anxious state because you can’t solve all your problems at once. However, it’s pointless to waste time being overly self-critical. Recognizing that you’re a work in progress alleviates the pressure to be perfect. Focusing on your strengths makes all the difference in the world.
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You’re tempted to let your colleagues know that you’re annoyed when they act as if they know everything. Unfortunately, expressing your irritation probably won’t improve the situation today. You could unconsciously make matters worse by provoking someone to act even more stubbornly. If a friend or coworker digs in his or her heels, remember that it’s not your job to change anyone’s mind. It’s a smarter strategy now to work on your own issues and let your actions speak for you, instead. Lead by example and see who follows.
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Setting a steady pace while doing chores today offers you the best chance of achieving your short-term goals. Hopefully, you understand that you can’t force anyone to move any faster than they’re already going. Although you might not be able to alter the flow of external events, you can change your attitude. There’s no need to panic if a project is taking longer than you expected. Stay cool; your persistence is your secret weapon. No one will fault you for your performance if your efforts are sincere and your intentions honorable.
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You might be content with your current accomplishments, but true satisfaction requires that you complete any projects you start. However, you may have to leave some work undone as you approach the holiday celebrations. Take time to reassess your recent progress and formulate a clear strategy for the future. Relying on your common sense takes you further on the road to success in the coming year. Reshuffling your priorities is the first step to making your dreams come true.
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Although this could be an auspicious day, it might not seem out of the ordinary as you go about your business. The steadfast Taurus Moon aligns favorably with four planets in your ambitious sign, indicating that you can accomplish nearly anything you put your mind to now. However, Rome wasn’t built in a day and the results of your current work may take weeks to manifest. Just give it your best effort moment by moment and the rewards will follow soon enough.
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Your peers might see you as brimming with holiday spirit today, especially if you keep the most serious issues buried deep inside. However, you are more practical than sentimental now, empowering you to set your emotions aside and get down to work. Fortunately, applying yourself diligently will be worth it in the long run. Seize this rare opportunity and produce something special with lasting value. Your unwavering determination enables you to wow others with your accomplishments.
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
The temptation to escape from your obligations is difficult to resist, especially if you are looking forward to this evening’s festivities. You know what you should do, but could suddenly be distracted by the celebratory excitement anyhow. However, having a concrete plan in place works in your favor now because you already know your limits. The sequence of events is critical today: meet your responsibilities first and then indulge in your fantasies later on.
