Horoscope - Dec 9 2016

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You’re enjoying the cosmic momentum today, but you might not be so happy when circumstances stop your progress. Rather than just accepting the resistance you encounter, you want to do battle with anyone who stands in your way. Unfortunately, fighting the opposition of an authority figure only exacerbates the stress. It’s smarter now to collaborate than to compete. Fortunately, an adversary will likely come around to your perspective, bringing a resurgence of energy and renewed optimism. Patient determination is your most efficient path to success.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Your moods are all over the map today and it may be helpful to share your feelings with someone you can trust. Stay open to the possibility that there are good things waiting in the wings, even if they haven’t made their entrance onto your life stage yet. However, there might be a rough patch when the headstrong Aries Moon catches up to erratic Uranus, creating some uncomfortable psychological turmoil. Author Alice Walker wrote, “Hard times require furious dancing.”

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You and your friends are on a roll, solving all the world’s problems today, but progress is slowed when someone speaks up and warns against jumping to conclusions. Sobering words can be a buzzkill, but it’s wise to heed them anyway. Don’t worry, lucky Jupiter lends a helping hand to the willful Sun now, so your enthusiasm won’t slump for long. Finding the right mix between compassion and practicality allows you to make a positive difference.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You’re driven by professional ambitions today, and you know you have what it takes to climb the ladder of success. However, it can be a drag when your physical body can’t keep up with your groundbreaking ideas. Your lack of stamina may hinder you in the early afternoon, but don’t throw in the towel just yet. When you take time to rest, you’ll go farther in the long run. Fortunately, a second wind comes along just in time to carry you to your destination.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You’re intent on soaring higher than ever before, but sometimes a successful launch requires a delay for an evaluation of the quality of your work. Unless you understand the wisdom of slowing down, you may feel like you’re hurrying up just to wait. Luckily, sensible Saturn is offering constructive criticism from your 5th House of Self-Expression, preparing you to put your best foot forward. A Danish proverb reminds us, “Delayed is preferable to never.”

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

All you want to do is push a task to completion today, yet unexpected changes require more caution than insistence. Authoritative Saturn stops you for an unexpected pop quiz in order to determine what else you need to know before continuing on. Don’t fret over lost time; it’s not really lost if you become more efficient in the long run.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Hot and cold, stop and go – the flipping and flopping of energy today is mildly infuriating. One moment you’re given the green light and the next you’re pulled over for speeding. As unpleasant as it is to deal with restrictions and limitations, sometimes it’s a blessing in disguise that keeps you from rushing into an unwise decision. The dynamic Aries Moon parties with unpredictable Uranus in your 7th House of Relationships, so don’t be surprised if things heat up with your partner or a new attraction rattles your cage.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

There’s plenty of work to get done today, and you’re fully prepared to power through it all. Paradoxically, problems that surface now may actually be for the best, because they reveal larger issues that could grow into showstoppers later on. Meanwhile, you’re tempted to overpower any resistance with brute force as the brash Aries Moon rumbles with rebellious Uranus. Pace yourself wisely and conserve your energy so you come out on top. Buddha said, “It is to the one who endures that the final victory comes.”

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

On one hand, you’re ready to play the day away, but on the other hand, you know it’s in your best interest to keep your shoulder to the wheel. One minute you’re enjoying the lighter side of life; the next it feels like you’re sabotaging your own success. Luckily, your stress is only temporary because the buoyant Sun-Jupiter sextile reminds you of how far you can fly when you take the time to fully prepare for your journey. Accepting that your present actions determine your future happiness is a sign of wisdom and maturity.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You are nothing if not persistent, so even if you encounter frustrating setbacks today, you’re still dead set on accomplishing your goal. The radiant Sun collaborates with jovial Jupiter, encouraging you to go big or go home. Although the bulk of the work you do might not be acknowledged now, the legacy and reputation you build will both precede and outlast you. Motivational author Napoleon Hill wrote, “Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.”

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your friendly demeanor may suffer today if you let your anxiety grow out of hand. It seems as if one person after another blocks your progress as you strive to complete your tasks. Try not to lash out in frustration if you feel overly constricted. Hurting someone’s feelings won’t advance your cause and it leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Surprise your haters with a smile and your success; work for the cause, not for the applause.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Although one part of you wants to let loose, you’re still determined to get serious about taking care of business. Escaping into fantasyland often lurks as an attractive temptation in your life, but the current planetary focus on your 10th House of Career won’t allow you to wander too far off track. Nevertheless, extravagant Jupiter is telling you that buying something you covet will lead to satisfaction. This internal tug of war may be frustrating, but if you keep a tight leash on your impulses today, your wallet will thank you tomorrow.

Q and Answer: Non-Ironic Holiday Sweaters?

Kickassery asks:  Any recommendations on where to find a non-ironic holiday sweater? Something more along the lines of a festive cowichan or cardigan rather than a sweatshirt with lights and a battery.

The holiday sweater has really become the modern equivalent of the novelty tie: allegedly fun and utterly disposable. It says “hey, clothes are stupid, let’s drink.” That said, festive occasions and chilly weather do lend themselves to knitwear that at least nods to the holiday season. In my view, you have four options that say “Christmas party” without saying “my sweater requires two triple As and a bad sense of humor.” 

It’s already a little late for a new holiday sweater for this year’s party season, but with fast shipping you can definitely have a non-ironic holiday sweater on your torso by Christmas day. And prep for doomsday next year–most of these will be discounted immediately after Christmas.


Here is a guy who’s trying to make the best out of his situation without giving up anything important to him. Here is a guy who recognises the flaws in the system and is not afraid to speak up about it, but would rather try to work for change within the system. Here is a guy who has given public support for an ex-member (his good friend!), but has decided to remain with his members. And here is a guy who’s facing hate from two different camps, for daring to proclaim his loyalty, regain trust, and yet strive for his own dreams. For daring to not choose one of the extremes, but trying to achieve some middle ground. Don’t punish him for wanting the best of both worlds. Don’t punish him for daring to dream. And don’t turn everything he says into ammunition for your own agenda. As he once said, “ 我从来没有做过的事情 也没必要解释 就不觉得白的可以说成黑 黑的可以染成白” (the things that I have not done do not need an explanation, i don’t think that white can be described as black, nor black be dyed into white). So I believe (:

One of my favourite things about aph denmark is how, every now and then, he goes from being all cheerful to suddenly doing something that’s sorta serious and kinda awesome, but it’s gone so quickly it’s easy to forget it ever happened

Like remember that time he was bouncing around, being his usual happy self, when Belarus threw that hanger at the nordics, and Denmark just wHIPPED round and caught the hanger that had been hurtling towards them out of the air with his bare hands?

Like, seriously, there is way more to him than what he shows everybody.
