Tis better to give this week, at least when it comes to evoking a feelgood buzz. Two pairs of planetsMars and Venus, plus Saturn and Plutonestle in a friendly configuration, calling forth your nurturing nature. Youre a little bit Mama Bear this week, particularly protective of the ones you love. Go to bat for someone in your inner circle if necessary, Libra, and be prepared to pitch in like one of Santas elves. Anyone would benefit from having you as an advocate. Remarkably, you manage to defend peoples honor without losing your coolthe picture of grace and diplomacy. Of course, its fine to give to Numero Uno too. Mars and Venus sound the call for TLC. Slowwww down, Libra. Decreasing your manic pace means youll enjoy the moment more. And with the zodiacs power couple situated as they are, youre meant to pamper yourself in the name of relaxing into a romantic groove. Stop by the makeup counter and find the just-right shade of red lipstick. Open your olfactory senses and pick a signature scent to spritz your winter blues away. Little luxe touches bring a huge boost to your libido, relaxing you and reminding you of your desirability. Since Mars is in your domestic fourth house, dont forget to stop by the home dcor department after streaking your lips with Russian Red or Viva Glam. A bright-hued tea kettle is like jewelry for your stovetop; burning a Diptyque candle makes everything from paying the bills to canoodling on the couch feel richer. Youre craving closeness all around this week. Host an intimate holiday party, feting the ones you love with a signature cocktail and trays of organic finger food like these tasty bites suggested by Libra lifestyle-pro Gwyneth Paltrow: http://www.goop.com/journal/make/196/small-bites. Youll be able to break through stubborn blocks with family members this week too. Are you worried that cousin Carol will corner you under the Christmas tree with questions about your relationship statusall while strategically flashing the engagement bauble weighing down her ring finger? Or maybe theres lingering tension from that post-election conversation you wish you didnt start while your right-wing Uncle Richard was carving the turkey last month. Mending fences is inexplicably easy this week so pick up the phone and get those creases ironed out before the next holiday gathering takes place. The Saturn-Pluto pairing brings a weightier energy to the mix. You wont be able to float off on a cloud of Stella McCartney L.I.L.Y. the entire week. A career-related matter demands your allegiance. Show up (on timeif not early) and prove that youre a loyalist and team player. Your nurturing gifts are needed in the workplace too. Be of service to the stressed out execs, ordering their lunches, making coffee runs and handing them papers so they can fly into a taxi and make that meeting without a hitch. Dont forget to gift the people who helped with your path to fortune this week too. If you share your rooftop with others, this is the week to set some house rules. You might also need to nudge a noisy neighbor about being more respectful about when she cranks her stereo up to full blast. If your circle of friends has devolved into in-fighting, release a flock of peace doves. Declare a no-gossip policy and push them to hash it out in the open instead of sniping behind each others backs. And hey, if they cant handle those policies, at least theyll know that your phone line isnt open for backstabbing or badmouthing. See no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil, Libra.
