Waterford Today weekly horoscopes

Wednesday 6th December - Tuesday 12th December

Aries 21st March-21st April

Getting what you want could become a lot easier this week Aries, your positivity and can-do attitude will encourage others to help you achieve your goals. The pace of life picks up some serious speed now, but you love to be busy and are happiest when you’ve a few tasks to hand. Someone in your inner circle could be doing it tough right now, your support and balanced but forthright point of view will be invaluable to them.

Taurus 22nd April-21st May

There is a very good chance that you’ll have your head turned by someone new you meet. One of those 'eyes across the room’ moments where there’s definite chemistry at play. You could be called on to help a friend in need. Christmas is a time of joy for many, for others, especially those who have lost loves ones, it can be tinged with sadness and regret. Something that seems like a disappointment initially turns out to be a lucky near miss instead!

Gemini 22nd May-21st June

Is it the mounting workload or Christmas frenzy that has you on edge Gemini, or are you picking up this tetchy energy from those around you? You’re keen to crack on and get everything done, but others seem to find fault or reason to delay. Frustrating as it is, try not to let the building tension boil over. It could simply be a difference in expectations, and your’s are generally quite high. Support a charity close to home by lending a hand or donating.

Cancer 22nd June-22nd July

You’re firing on all cylinders and raring to go Cancer, and just as well, the workload is mounting and the ability to harness the energy of the season will see you sailing smoothly into the new year with a sense of a job well done. You’ll need to be extra organised though, with Mercury back-spinning there’s bound to be a few hiccups along the way. Christmas is a notorious time for family feuds to resurface, where possible, stay out of it.

Leo 23rd July-23rd August

The entrance of Venus softens any lingering aggressive Mars energy. If you’ve been feeling a bit irritable and prone to

snapping easily, this will recede now. The flip side of this is that you might feel more emotionally needy than usual. If you’ve been storing up any unexpressed feelings, a dam could burst now and your deepest unmet needs could come to light. Sharing these emotions with your nearest and dearest will bring you closer.

Virgo 24th August-23rd September

Sometimes not getting your way is a marvellous thing Virgo. You won’t see it immediately, but afterwards you’ll be glad that, for whatever reason, the outcome you were pushing so hard for, didn't’ come to pass and you realise now, it wouldn’t have been the best result after all. So lesson your assertiveness where you can and listen more to another person’s perspective.

Libra 24th September-23rd October

You’ll be making good first impressions with almost everyone you meet Libra, thanks to your open nature and willingness to both listen attentively and give intelligent and positive feedback. You’ll be feeling sociable too and could find that you only touch base at home to eat and sleep! One area you might be falling down in, is with your significant other, who could be feeling a little neglected. Make sure to show them how much you think of them.

Scorpio 24th October-22nd November

Be vigilant when shopping online Scorpio, with Mercury retrograde there’s plenty of electronic high-jinx at play. You could find your simple slip of the finger means you order 11 items instead of 1 and don’t realise until after you’ve confirmed your order. Or you fail to check the 'deliver by’ date and realise that the amazing gift you ordered won’t make it in time for Christmas. Order only from reputable sites and those with tracking capability.

Sagittarius 23rd November-21st December

Strained relationships with a family member, particularly a female family member, stand a chance to come to better terms now.

Forgiveness is possible and the chance to put something to rest for once and for all can be achieved. There is strong maternal energy around you now and you’ll long for simple home comforts and to make this festive season all about family.

Capricorn 22nd December-20th January

While everyone else is racing around and gearing up for the festivities, you could find yourself travelling at a much slower pace Capricorn. As invitations for parties arrive you may feel more like staying at home with your nearest and dearest. Don’t worry, you’ll get in the spirit of things soon enough and if you’re not keen to venture out, you can always invite the party to yours!

Aquarius 21st January-19th February

You’re in the party mode Aquarius, but there’s lots of work to be done between now and party season proper. Speaking of work, there’s a good chance a big change will soon take place in your working life. It could be a new job offer, a relocation of your place of work, or a whole new hierarchy /management structure. Could you yourself be moving into the management arena? It would give you the chance to directly affect the changes you’d like to see.

Pisces 20th February-20th March

Life may seem like a bit of an obstacle course this week Pisces and you’ll have to get creative to find some work-arounds. Everywhere you turn and everything you try to do there seems to be something in your way blocking your progress. You can thank Mercury retrograde for this. The advice is to slow down, be methodical in what you can get done and wait for conditions to improve before attempting more. This is not a great time to commit to anything official, be warned.

The mother and six of her children had to seek accommodation in the Tallaght Garda Station last week as they had absolutely nowhere to turn to. It led to an outcry as pictures of the young children sleeping on seats were posted to social media by the mother.Understandably there were a lot of people who were saddened to see that in this day and age that a family had to resor …
