Libra (September 22nd to October 21st)

You may feel compelled to do more in the exciting world of work, but that’s not your real arena for growth. You’re more likely to have fires to start, stoke or put out at home or with significant other(s) in your life than at the office. (Unless, of course, you work, love and live at your office.)  Not all fires, to be clear, have to be the kind that leave people burnt. This could easily be the kind of Christmas where more than presents get unwrapped, if you feel me. But that’s only if you stay focused on the fun and not the fitna or somebody having a fit.  That doesn’t mean you have to suffer someone’s abuse or unkindness. It means that one upset doesn’t have to lead to a circuit of upsets. If you let that happen, then you’re lighting the wrong tree.
