Gemini… Neptune is descending at the moment. This week your interest will lie in the diabolic, something hyperbolic, and/or an alcoholic.
Cancer… Pluto is on the cusp with Cancer at this time. Beware of a sneaky snooper, a pooper scooper, and/or something really super.
Leo… The Earth is rising at the moment. You will soon be stuck in a return line. (Not in a department store.) In your air conditioning system.

Capricorn… The Sun is in its seventh house and approaching a cusp with Capricorn. You should know that with few exceptions, you cannot buy spreadsheets at a linen outlet.
Aquarius… Mercury is in its fifth house making preparations for a New Years Eve party. Keep your eyes wide open for a certain business card, a pound of lard, and/or a cross crossing guard.
Pisces… Saturn is approaching its perigee at this time. Be alert for a large snow drift ,a geographical rift and/or a paradigm shift.
And remember what Weird Al says about astrology in his song, “Your Horoscope For Today”:
“Now you may find it inconceivable or at the very least a bit unlikely that the relative position of the planets and the stars could have a special deep significance or meaning that exclusively applies to only you, but let me give you my assurance that these forecasts and predictions are all based on solid, scientific, documented evidence, so you would have to be some kind of moron not to realize that every single one of them is absolutely true.”

Tiny Tree Triumphs
3-Foot-Tall Christmas Tree Really Completes Incredibly Depressing Apartment
GRAND RAPIDS, MI—
Noting that the sad little seasonal addition really seemed to “pull the place together,” local resident Jason Uhlir, 28, was reportedly pleased Tuesday by the way his newly purchased 3-foot-tall Christmas tree completed the unbelievably depressing look of his one-bedroom apartment.
“I had this bleak, empty corner between my stained secondhand futon and the slanting bookshelf where I keep my six DVDs, so I thought it might be nice to put a misshapen, pathetically under-decorated Christmas tree there,” said Uhlir, noting how the shabby miniature pine with its two ornaments and single pitifully draped strand of colored lights really “tied together nicely” with the ratty, soiled towel he placed beneath the tree and the nearby blinking internet router and tangle of Ethernet cords in the middle of the floor.
“I kind of had my own vibe going on in here with my completely blank, bare walls and oppressive fluorescent overhead lighting, so I didn’t know how a Christmas tree would look. But I have to say that this miserable little decoration and the pile of needles accumulating around it have really put the utterly dispiriting atmosphere of my apartment over the top.”
Sources noted that Uhlir’s living room was only one embarrassing, shoddily wrapped Christmas present away from pulling off that hands-down, blow-your-brains-out wretched look.
A tiny woeful Christmas tree,
Is something for the world to see,
It sits alone on a wooden floor,
The owner couldn’t ask for more.
It has a few scarce ornaments,
To look at it makes me lament,
The tinsel hangs on spiny arms,
But it exudes its lovely charms,
The tree is only three foot tall,
But it stands proud against a wall,
There is no star to adorn the thing,
Or angles with their heavenly wings.
There is but one small string of lights,
To make the drab room somewhat bright,
A small stained towel surrounds its base,
The sight brings smiles to the owners face.
