Romantic encounters will unfold if you go out with friends. You'll be in a talkative mood, it'll be a good time to get your point across.

You'll win the hearts of those you love through your unselfish actions. You were born with the pizzazz, charm and diplomacy to please a crowd and gain the support you need to accomplish your goals.

You can make career moves and work well with your new colleagues. You will have the stamina to put in the hours of work it will take to complete an important task.

GEMINI

This week's scenario is highlighted by unrealistic financial expectations that may be the cause of an emotional setback. Don't promise to donate to a cause if you really can't afford to. Lending money to a friend this week, will end up in a disaster. Investments may not be in your best interests, either. Someone around you may try to take atvantage of you. Look into joining a fitness club that offers individual sports. You will drive toward success relentlessly and will be blatant about your desires. Problems with relatives will surface if you're involved in financial ventures with them. You may be too emotional at work. Try to keep your nose out of other people's business. By week's end, you'll be the life of the party. Your quick retorts will keep everyone in stitches.

CANCER

This week's scenario is highlighted by happy feelings that inspire the best kind of honesty. You or someone close to you may blurt out a secret fantasy. The world may change for the better, as a result. A small luxury lets you feel enormously wealthy. Giving yourself a reason to smile doesn't have to break the bank. Plans for the future go forward with renewed optimism. The differences between friends and lovers are minimal. Pull out all the stops and let your true nature emerge to others. You can easily stand up to the slings and arrows that have been preventing you from doing what you want to do. Improve your aim by limiting your scope. Be a good sport when you win. You've been on the losing end before and should remember how it feels. Give others the benefit of the doubt, their hidden talents may surprise you.

LEO

This week's scenario is highlighted by someone who is about to call your bluff. Friendly rivalry is an inclusive sport rather than a cutthroat contest. You need to establish your credentials before anyone will start to take you seriously. Feel good about yourself & prepare yourself for a mental battle. It's easier to plan your strategy when you're not under so much pressure. The longer you look, the more pressure you feel. You may not be an expert, but that shouldn't stop you from finding solutions. Everyone around you will exceed his or her personal best when rising to the challenge. It's easy to remember what being an outsider feels like. You still have a lot of research to do before you can arrive at a decision. By the end of the week clues will become more apparent. You'll learn as you go, drawing in knowledge through your fingertips and the air that you breathe.

VIRGO

This week's scenario is highlighted by your ability to teach & learn at the same time. Stop being so serious. Try to be more understanding, not judgmental, in emotional situations. Use your quick wit to encourage deeper thinking. Help children with projects they have a hard time understanding. Look into groups that will allow you to spend more time with your family. Consider a membership to your community center. You mustn't take advantage of the privileges you've been given. Don't neglect legal matters that need your attention. Disruptions in your flow may cause you to stop what you are working on. Make arrangements quickly and carry on where you left off. Problems with co-workers indicate that you should not rely on others so much. Get out and do things that will bring you satisfaction and enhance your reputation.

LIBRA

This week's scenario is highlighted by your innovative & creative mind. You'll bristle with energy. Some people may be frightened by the roar of your laughter. Those who love intensity are happy to call you their friend. Those who don't know you, will soon be pleasantly surprised by your presence. You're irresistibly attractive on all levels. Heads will turn and jaws will drop at your slightest move. You'll have the first pick on any offer you want. You'll shine in any conversation, if only you can find someone who isn't too overwhelmed by your aura, to speak to you. You may not get exactly to where you were planning on going. Chances are, you'll end up somewhere just as good or better. Set aside some of your treasures you acquire now for a rainy day. Be patient, prepare for a frustrating time by keeping busy. Learn how to wait. Good things will come to those who wait.

SCORPIO

This week's scenario is highlighted by influences from someone who refuses to listen to reason. Events could move faster than you would have preferred, you might as well lie back and enjoy the attention you receive. Try not to let underlying discord ruin your mood any more than necessary. Let the facts speak for themselves. The master plan will become apparent to others as well. Sometimes you don't fully understand your reasons for doing things until you explain them to somebody else. Consider calling a powerful friend with a good ear. Once you are able to express you emotions verbally, you'll feel more confident in your ideas. People will think you're either a genius or a lunatic, or maybe both. Some will love you no matter what you do. Either way, you in for a fun week if you keep positive.

SAGITTARIUS

This week's scenario is highlighted by your ability to cocoon yourself, effectively at the right time. You may not be very persuasive at the moment. Allow someone else make the moves and see where they lead to. You can learn some amazing things and have fun while learning. Dynamic changes may be better left for others right now. You can't afford to ask any favors or to refuse favors asked of you. Opponents stand ready to pounce at the first sign of weakness. It would be in your best interest to keep as low to the ground as possible. Don't be alarmed if someone calls you a stick in the mud. You know what you like, you have your routine and you shouldn't let anyone push you off course. Limit your acquisitions to the things you absolutely need. Many bridges may have been burned in the blinding light of short term gain. You are the ultimate judge of your own character.

CAPRICORN

This week's scenario is highlighted by a positive environment which allows you room to grow. Use your time as productively as possible. Individual achievements are possible within a working team structure. A game of one upmanship might ultimately benefit everyone. Don't let stubbornness or misunderstandings doom you to loneliness. Respect a difference of opinion and work around it. It's time to get serious, do so with a smile on your face. No one said that learning has to be a painful experience. Others connect with you when they grasp the full impact of what you're telling them. Look at your wish list again and see if anything has become possible since last time. A small change in attitude could result in a big difference in your life.

AQUARIUS

This week's scenario is highlighted by your ability to multi-task your efforts. You can expand on your ingenious ideas in the workplace. You will excel if you stay focused. Make your presentation, and don't be afraid to put yourself on the line. Travel could lead you to opportunities that will be hard to turn down. Make personal changes. Shopping sprees will be a learning experience. Don't buy things you don't really want. It's time to get yourself back into shape. You can expect an emotional push-and-pull with loved ones. Try not to be too abrupt when expressing your true feelings. Dealing with children may be very difficult. Do things that involve more physical activity.

PISCES

This week's scenario is highlighted by your need to take a break in the action. You want to be on the cutting edge and will step out on a limb to get the attention you desire. You will aim at beefing up your financial portfolio. Exhaustion is evident unless you look into a relaxing break. A vacation that allows you to sit back and contemplate your future plans would be great, but you may not have the time to spare. Changing your professional direction is not a bad idea. Someone you work with cannot be trusted. Don't be so open about your personal life or your feelings about co-workers. Listen and observe others and you will pick up information that will benefit you in your own personal situation. Don't allow others to goad you into spending more than you can afford.

NORTH AMERICAN WEEKLY HOROSCOPES from Astrology Source

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES FOR THE WEEK OF DECEMBER 5th - DECEMBER 11th, 2005

Provided by Astrology Source

ARIES
This week's scenario is highlighted by your sense of timing & luck. Your universal appeal will make you very popular. You may find yourself in the public eye. A simple observation can provoke a strong response. You'll need to have emotional contact with others. Even though your friends tend to show off their assets, you must keep a close eye on your budget. Best not to discuss your future plans with one who lacks your vision & imagination. Don't allow them to dampen your enthuasium. Someone with whom you have almost nothing in common may come to your aid. Utilise your ability to analyse data in order to meet deadlines, schedules. You'll gain admiration for your honest, direct approach. Don't allow yourself to be detoured from your immediate goals. Make plans, follow through & put your power behind your presence. Take the iniative & you'll be able to deal with any situation this week.

TAURUS
This week's scenario is highlighted by a mixture of energy from your emotional moods. Special feelings about traditions, relationships & a new interest in financial opportunities will surface. You can start your own traditions, make plans, include everybody close to your heart. The support will give you the confidence you lack. Try to remove excess stress wherever possible, your loved ones will notice the difference, if you do. You're not a great fan of detail but you need to focus your time properly. You could feel frustrated, or even feel personally criticized. That whining you hear in the corner could be coming from an overworked colleague, try to help in any way you possibly can. You love to take those great leaps, but the timing is not quite right yet. Work at it step by step.

GEMINI
This week's scenario is highlighted by high emotion & excitement. You could feel overwhelmed or overly sensitive, unable to make a move, but you can rise to fly again, perhaps higher than ever before. Positive flow from member of the opposite sex will set you into motion. Your motives could be challenged by those in authority. Keep your cool, don't waste your effort, focus your energy on finalizing agreements, contracts, promises. Your rewards are long overdue. You will be able to achieve success, if you trust your gut feelings & remain loyal to your principles. Your universal appeal will help you dazzle even the dullest audience. A reunion with family, or with those who feel like family, seems appropriate. You might want to invite them to your place, where you can entertain with style and grace. Entertaining will allow you to network your ideas, prospects. Opportunities to meet interesting people will help you to broaden your horizons. Be honest in expressing how you feel, especially this week-end.

CANCER

12 Steps to Finding a Spiritual Teacher You Can Trust


by Sandra Mizumoto Posey, Ph.D.


Books abound on the array of neo-pagan faiths and Wiccan traditions, but after reading all we can, it is common to desire a teacher to inspire and guide us along our chosen path. Unfortunately, the world is full of hucksters eager to cash in on this desire. Money, however, is not the only "evil" to watch out for, and often not even the primary one. Potential religious teachers often seek the recognition or respect given to them by eager students. Sometimes, such respect is entirely unwarranted. Over the course of our lives, we may have many teachers and learn these lessons through hard-won experience but how can you avoid these pitfalls and find a spiritual teacher with your best interests at heart? Here are some tips to help you find your way amidst the labyrinth of good and bad intentions:

Search for a teacher who is both experienced and honest. There are many reputable teachers in a variety of traditions and they will welcome your questions about their lineage and training. If they are self-taught, a good teacher with lots of experience is not ashamed to admit they are. Claims of profound mystical powers are often a warning sign, as is how your prospective teacher handles proprietary information. Is it common for the teacher or other group members to pass along written information without crediting authorship? How can you tell? If the style of language used in the text does not match what your teacher or fellow group member usually uses, chances are they copied this information elsewhere without crediting its author. A good teacher will not only credit where they acquired information, they will make a point of teaching you to do the same.

Take your time & avoid anyone who moves too fast. Don’t adopt a teacher on the basis of one meeting. Spiritual education is a life-long journey. There’s no inherent value in rushing your decision. On the flip side: does your prospective teacher accept you as a student without taking the time to really get to know you? This should be a two-way process and a teacher who does not take the time to evaluate prospective students is in search of quantity, not quality.
Get to know your teacher & his/her tradition. Sometimes the only way to get to know a teacher is by enrolling in a class they may offer online or at your local occult shop. Feel free to enroll in these without committing to being their student on a long-term basis (ie, seeking initiation or ordination with that teacher). Evaluate the information you are provided with in the class – Does it feel like the right path for you? Does his/her description of their tradition fall in line with your own research on that tradition. You haven’t done any research on his/her tradition? Back-up and do that before agreeing to anything!

Conduct a background check. What is your prospective teacher’s background? Does s/he claim initiations or degrees that you cannot confirm through outside sources? A reputable teacher will be happy to provide references. Be wary of individuals who claim hereditary blood lines or training that you cannot verify. Find out his/her reputation in the spiritual community. Is the prospective teacher respected amongst his/her peers? If you meet your teacher at a festival, community event, or even in a chatroom, ask others of similar stature and experience what they think of him/her. Does s/he allow contact with her former students that have completed their training with her? If not, consider it a warning sign.

Learn to spot power trips and puffery. Are you strongly urged by the teacher to take the next class (to the point of being pushy)? Does the teacher seem impressed with him/herself? Does s/he brag about who s/he knows or his/her own stature? Does your prospective teacher make rash, emotional decisions or always place blame on someone other than themselves? Does your prospective teacher expect you to put them on a pedestal? If not, are you tempted to put them on one? Run far, far away. No matter who instigates such a relationship, it is not healthy for either party.

Ask questions about his/her personal and professional life. Is his/her emotional life in order? Spirituality affects and permeates all levels of our lives, and as such a good teacher should have stable relationships with their mate, family, friends, former teachers and former students. This is not to say that we don’t all go through ups and downs, or that you should necessarily quit working with someone when they go through inevitable woes life swings our way, but you’ll both have a more rewarding experience if you start when you are both on a more stable footing. This, of course, will become readily apparent if you follow step 1 (above) and take your time: time will tell you whether or not your prospective teacher is merely going through a rough period or if chaos, dissension and blaming others seems to follow them wherever they go.

Find out if the teacher takes minors as their students without significant dialogue and permission from the student’s legal guardian. For those who are underage – Yes, I realize you are eager to learn as much as you can about your chosen spiritual path, but remember that there is no reason to rush things. Even your parent’s religion will teach you valuable lessons regardless of what path you later choose to take. A good teacher will encourage that you learn your lessons from your family while you can.

Explore all your options. Does your prospective teacher encourage you to explore several paths before deciding his/hers is the right one? An experienced teacher will be able to provide you with a list of readings that illustrate perspectives different from his/her own. S/he should be willing to discuss these options with you without pointing out his/hers is the only right option. Certain traditions require significant investments of your time – if you are the type that likes to study many different paths simultaneously, talk this over with your teacher. Most will be fine with it, especially if you are still exploring and trying things out (they may even encourage it!), but because of the intensity of the training they may require you to decide upon one before beginning a priest/ess path with their group.

Evaluate what you expect from your teacher. What kind of relationships do other people in the group have with the teacher? You can tell a lot from context. Some teachers will prefer a more formal relationship, others informal. One isn't necessarily better than another, but knowing what you're after ensures a more likely fit. It's also a good idea to open up a dialogue by writing a list of what you are looking for and sharing this with the prospective teacher when you meet.
Ask prospective teachers what they expect from you. What will your homework assignments be like and how much time per week or month will you be expected to devote to them? How many classes and rituals do you need to attend? Be honest with him/her and yourself -- can you balance the study load along with work, family life or school? If not, now may not be the time to begin this particular course of study. If a fee is charged for lessons, does it seem reasonable? Teachers have to eat too, so money does not necessarily indicate base motivations, but the fee should be reasonable (whatever that means for you -- don't be afraid to ask what the fees are allocated for). Also ask if you are allowed to disagree with a teacher. You should certainly learn their tradition and fit reasonably well with their beliefs if you plan to dedicate and seek initiation, but questions and doubts should be part of the dialogue and not simply subject to blind faith. Bear in mind however that the relationship you have with your teacher should also not be a constant source of philosophical (or other) disagreement.

Assess whether or not the ethics of a group is a good fit with your own. Some people think that "consciousness-altering" substances are a valuable part of ritual, while others would never even consider such a thing. From Dionysian revels to Native American worship, this isn’t an easy question when you look at historic precedents, but whether your own ethics fall on one side or the other of this argument, make sure you discuss this with your prospective teacher ahead of time. Either way, avoid illegal substances and the groups that use them. Whether or not they should be legal is beside the point; common sense tells us that it is needlessly foolhardy to participate in illegal activities. Another area to consider: Certain favors from the student to the teacher are not considered ethical; the most obvious ones are sexual favors. We’re human; sometimes romantic relationships develop between members of a group, but they should not be expected as a matter of course, nor should they break any commitments you or the other party has made with your respective spouses nor should they be tied to your advancement in the group. Less obvious are things like washing the windows in the High Priestess' house (Helping to clean up the property after a ritual, however, is normal).

Trust your intuition. A teacher may check out all the points beautifully but the student's inner bell is clanging an alarm. In that case, the student should heed it.
