Weekly horoscope (Dec. 26-Jan. 1) 

Control your temper

For All Signs: The Christmas Star has been a source of inquiry for centuries. It is generally accepted among historians that the Magi were astrologers. Since the birthdate of Jesus is unknown, one must search history for clues as to what compelled the Magi to travel. Though some have suggested that a comet might have been the signal, these explanations are unlikely. Therefore those events were not included in the astrologers' repertoire of prognostic wisdom.

Percy Seymour, physicist-astronomer of Great Britain, offered a strong case which postulates the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction of September 7 in the year 7 B.C., as the birthdate of Jesus. During that year, there was a rare and politically important triple conjunction of these two planets in the sign of Pisces, the Fish. The middle conjunction of September 7 occurred while the Sun was in the sign of Virgo. As the sun was setting that evening, the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction was ascending and heralding the birth of a king. Thus it might have been said that he was born of a virgin (Virgo). Biblical realists will not appreciate this interpretation, but it is a sound premise if one considers the astrological knowledge of the times.

Aries: This is not your best week. You may have people around who want to prod you into losing your temper. Take that adrenalin and use it for a task that requires physical strength. You may prefer to work alone during this period.

Taurus: This is a quiet and possibly studious week for you. You may be researching things related to school or business. Be aware that your ruling planet, Venus, is retrograding. This means you will be drawn into an uncomfortable place within your relationship. Old habits could surface. Try not to go there.

Gemini: Your attention shifts to matters of shared resources. The territory is wide, ranging from the mundane study of the budget to investments, and even to important discussions with partners over the need for greater intimacy.

Cancer: You will be as cool as glass but the people around you are likely to be upset, angry or sullen. Don't take this personally. Just continue with your plans as much as you can. Others will need your loving kindness more than ever now.

Leo: Your frame of mind is focused on independence. You may be compelled to declare your freedom. It won't make a lot of friends on the playground, but this feels truly mandatory. If your energy is directed toward social justice, there will be many on your side.

Virgo: Mercury, your ruling planet, moves into the sector of life. This could be related to children, recreation, and/or romance. There is intensity in these areas, between the 29th and the 31st. Drive and handle sharp tools with care. Your tongue may be as sharp as a tool itself. Don't overreact.

Libra: Concentrate on maintaining your composure. You could easily be drawn off your center by people or circumstances that have made you angry. Libras are shaken by their temper. Drive carefully and don't let road rage cause you to have an accident.

Scorpio: Your significant other may be falling into an old pattern that has caused harm in the past. Take good care of yourself now, even if you must put distance between the two of you. Otherwise you will return to your old, negative patterns.

Sagittarius: Although the world is a whirlwind around you, this is a time that you do not have to join into the struggles of others. Your general optimism is just what is needed. Spread it generously.

Capricorn: You must prove the value of your efforts on a project that began a year or more ago. You are bent on having things your way. Concentrate on diplomacy in order to accomplish your objectives. Force will only result in provoking defensiveness.

Aquarius: You need to be left alone. Recognize this as a gift and don't feel sorry for yourself. You'll prefer reverie, books and daydreaming.

Pisces: This is likely to be an interesting and quiet week for the Fish. You probably will spend the holiday with friends and family. Enjoy the peace and don't allow the havoc of others to disturb your placid waters.
