I love love. I really do. And that is one of the many reasons I love February. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a Valentine this year, there is plenty of love to go around. And if you are busting at the seams to give a little love away, well February is Self Love Month, lucky you! I seem to get a little love tossed my way almost every day. It could be a client who hugs me when they see me, it could be my granddaughter crawling into my bed at 6 AM, or maybe it’s a snuggle from my dog. One thing I am sure of, I am not deprived of love. Even still, I have decided to heap some on myself this month. So if we are going to do this together the first thing we have to do is to forgive ourselves for the many times we were an idiot in 2017. I’m not sugar coating it. I have definitely been an idiot at least once, maybe 100 times, in the last year. I am only human and I forgive myself. You know February is also Self Esteem Month. And if you knew how important it is to yourself and all the people you love, you would be reaching out to boost someone up everyday. High self esteem leads to success in your personal life, business life, relationships, mental health and the list goes on. You can focus on growing and just start off with baby steps, just smile at a stranger every time you are out. One small step towards personal growth, and confidence looks good on you.

I also used to love February because it is the month of my birthday, which happens to be the same day as the Daytona 500 this year. You might of noticed I used past tense there. I also love February because it kicks off the season here in town. So many happy, smiling faces with each ch-Ching of the cash register. And while many of you are digging February because of your love of the Super Bowl, I on the other hand, am concentrating way to much on how to celebrate National Drink Wine Day. And what an amazing coincidence (not to mention convenient), it happens to fall on my birthday as well. February is filled with other amazing events such as Ground Hog Day on the fifth, Chinese New Year on February 16, and Mardi Gras on February 28. So why not join me and help me celebrate another amazing month starting on February 1, National Freedom Day! Enjoy this month’s issue and in case I didn’t tell you, you are an amazing person and I am very grateful for you! Happy Valentine’s Day!

Another way to love yourself is to get rid of the negativity. I am not telling you to wipe out half of your social media friends, just saying adding a few positive up beat followers isn’t a bad idea. There’s nothing wrong with seeking out someone as strong as you are. Remember if you believe it you will become it, so positive people need only apply.

t probably doesn’t come as a surprise, but the way I express my feelings of love towards someone is to cook for them an amazing dinner. And what better time to do that then on St. Valentine’s evening? While this menu I have gathered for you may not include any hot new trends, what I decided to make myself this year and share with you, just never goes out of style. In my opinion, nothing says “you’re special to me” like buttery lobster tails. And I can not think of anything sexier then a fillet mignon with rich, decadent Bearnaise sauce. Grilled asparagus says “you are worth it!” Old school dinner for a girl with old school values. And dessert, well this one says, “underneath it all, I am the most fun you will ever have!” Add a crusty loaf of bread from the bakery and make sure you have real butter. Roses are red, violets are blue, you will never forget the person who made you Châteaubriand for two!



14 to 15 ounces beef tenderloin (see notes) 1-1/2 tablespoons olive oil Salt and freshly ground black pepper Sauce Bearnaise (see recipe below)

Preheat the oven to 400°F and season the beef liberally on all sides with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a heavy, ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and sear until lightly browned on all sides, turning with tongs as needed, about 3 minutes total.

NOTES Tell your butcher that you are making Châteaubriand and have him cut a 14 to 15-ounce section of the tenderloin from the very center and be sure he trims any fat and silver skin as well. You should have a beautiful looking, lean cut of beef measuring 2-1/2 to 3-inches in diameter and 5 to 6 inches long when he’s done.

Place the skillet in the oven and roast for 10 to 12 minutes, until an instant read thermometer registers 125° for medium rare. Tent with foil and allow to rest for 20 minutes before carving.

SAUCE BÉARNAISE 1/4 cup champagne or white wine vinegar 1/4 cup dry white wine 1 tablespoon shallots, very finely chopped

Serve with Sauce Béarnaise.

INGREDIENTS 3 tablespoons fresh tarragon leaves, chopped 1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns 1/4 teaspoon salt

10 tablespoons (1 stick plus 2 tablespoons) butter, melted 3 large egg yolks

Combine the vinegar, wine, shallots, tarragon leaves, peppercorns and salt in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a rapid simmer and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, DIRECTIONS or until reduced by about 75%. Set aside to cool for a few minutes, then strain into a small bowl, pressing the shallot mixture with the back of a spoon to squeeze

out all of the liquid. You should have about 2 tablespoons. If you’re short, just add a little water to make up the difference. Rinse and dry the saucepan and add the butter. Melt completely over medium heat and set aside for 2 to 3 minutes. Carefully skim off most of the foam that forms with a spoon and set aside. Removing the foam helps the sauce to emulsify. Place 1/2 to 3-4-inch of water in a saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Find a heatproof bowl that will fit over the simmering water without actually touching it during cooking. A distance of about 1-1/2 inches between the water and the bottom of the bowl is ideal. We generally use a stainless mixing bowl over a 2-quart saucier. Place the egg yolks and strained vinegar mixture into the heatproof bowl and whisk together until blended. Set the bowl over the simmering water and whisk vigorously as the eggs thicken and increase in volume, scraping the sides frequently to keep the mixture cooking evenly. You must whisk continually until the eggs have thickened to the point where you can see thin ribbons form when you lift the whisk. This should take about 5 minutes. To finish the sauce, whisk in the melted butter in a very slow drizzle. The sauce will thicken and develop a glossy sheen. Pour into a sauce boat and serve immediately. Makes about 1 cup.


4 8-ounce fresh or frozen lobster tails 1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel

1/2 teaspoon chili powder 1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 cup butter Clarified Butter (optional)

Thaw lobster tails, if frozen. Preheat broiler. Butterfly the lobster tails by cutting through the center of the hard top shells and meat. Spread the halves of tails apart. DIRECTIONS Place lobster tails, meat side up, on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. In a small skillet cook garlic, orange peel, and chili powder in butter over medium heat about 30 seconds or until garlic is tender. Brush mixture over lobster meat. Broil 4 inches from heat for 12 to 14 minutes or until lobster meat is opaque. If desired, serve with Clarified Butter.


3/4 tsp Kosher salt 1/2 tsp Pepper, fresh ground

1 bunch Asparagus, medium sized 1/4 tsp Garlic powder

1/2 tbsp Olive oil

oven to 425 degrees F. Trim asparagus stems, cutting off bottoms and leaving tops with about 2 inches of stems. Place in ziploc bag or shallow baking dish and DIRECTIONS Preheat coat well with olive oil. Place asparagus on a foil-lined baking sheet or pan and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Bake for about 10-15 minutes until tender.


1 1/2 cups cold milk 1 package of instant chocolate pudding mix

1 1/2 cups canned cherry pie filling 1 (8 oz.) container of Cool Whip

12 Oreo cookies

milk into a large bowl and add the dry pudding mix. Beat mixture with a wire whisk for 2 minutes. Gently stir in 1 cup of the whipped topping. Crush 10 of the DIRECTIONS Pour cookies and stir into the pudding mixture. Spoon your desserts into small individual dessert dishes layering as follows: pudding mixture, Cool Whip, pie filling, and crushed Oreos. NOTE: Makes: 8 servings. You can also layer this in a larger dish for a group.





PERSEVERE ENTERTAINMENT GROUP ANNOUNCES NEW EP, SHAGSHUFFLESHIMMYSHAKESWING: VOL 1 FROM BILLY BUCHANAN Persevere Entertainment Group is thrilled to announce the release of the latest EP from Billy Buchanan, ShagShuffleShimmyShakeSwing: Vol 1, available everywhere on January 12, 2018. ShagShuffleShimmyShakeSwing: Vol 1 is an authentic homage to the pioneers of soul and early rock from the 50’s and 60’s…“The ones that started it all”. You can hear the backbeat rhythms and musical influences of all the artists he admires. The lead single, “The Pioneers”, is a celebration of the music of Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Ray Charles, and Sam Cooke and will take you back to a time of juke joint, jump jiving grooves that still move your heart and soul, and make you want to get up and dance. Along with recent TV appearances on River City Live and Jacksonville Buzz TV, Buchanan also performed multiple shows for the IKEA Jacksonville Grand Opening, and has been performing at the brand new One Daytona (epicenter of hotels, shopping, entertainment and more next to the Daytona Speedway) in Daytona Beach with his band, Billy Buchanan & his Rock ‘n Soul Revue. Check out his full schedule and more at: www.billybuchanan. org/events “As an artist, my highest aspiration is to celebrate 50’s and 60’s soul and early rock artists and to educate my audience on these artists’ ginormous contribution to the musical landscape. Their influence is undeniable on my new EP, ShagShuffleShimmyShakeSwing: Vol 1. Celebrate and Educate! That’s what it’s all about for me.” – Billy Buchanan Billy currently resides in St. Augustine as a fulltime entertainer and songwriter, performing 200-250 shows a year. Billy also mentors, consults, and develops aspiring artists through his music company, Persevere Entertainment Group.

Condercuri, originally from Springfield, Massachusetts, took ownership of Uncle Waldo’s on January 8, 2016, and followed up with a complete and extensive renovation. “This place didn’t look this way before,” A.J. tells us. “We tore the walls down, changed the carpet and the color of the felt, and created a great atmosphere for people to enjoy themselves and not just to play billiards.” In fact, Uncle Waldo’s has become a popular spot for holding special events. “The pub has been a host for many birthday parties, wedding receptions, Christmas parties, and corporate events,” says Tony. Uncle Waldo’s inside space is also smoke-free, so it’s a fantastic place to bring the whole family for a day of fun. By evening, it transforms into a lively pub filled with music and sport cheers. There is also an outside patio with two outdoor pool tables, the only one in Volusia County! When hunger strikes, Uncle Waldo’s full kitchen serves up incredibly tasty

dishes such as their HUGE chicken wings, chicken parmesan, cheese burgers, pulled pork, Philly cheese steaks, BBQ chicken sliders and the menu goes on. Tony recommends trying their signature garlic knot sliders, guaranteed to be one of your favorite comfort foods! Lunch specials are available from Monday through Friday from 11am – 4pm. The pub also offers a variety of beverages, including 16 beers on draft. Happy hours are Sunday till Thursday from 11am – 6pm, Friday from 10:30pm – 2am, and Saturdays from 6 pm - 8pm. Customers can enjoy $2 domestic and $4 premium draft beer, or 5 domestic beers for $9.50. Mondays are reserved for ladies’ night where liquors are 2 for 1, and Tuesdays are “College Nights” when students can enjoy 2 for 1 drafts, well, call and half off appetizers. The pub also celebrates “Service Industry Nights” from Sunday to Thursday from 10:30pm – 2am, where service industry employees can enjoy a free game of pool. Currently Uncle Waldo’s is taking pride in being active in the school system by sponsoring the Atlantic Basketball Team.

NEPTUNE’S SPORTS PUB & CAFE PREPARES TO UNVEIL THEIR LATEST MILESTONE, AN ALL NEW SEAFOOD MENU! As Daytona Beach’s season grows nearer to the start of race weeks, Neptune’s Sports Pub & Cafe gears up to unveil their all new seafood menu. With the addition of many new chain restaurants opening along the A.1.A. corridor, the menus were becoming redundant. Neptune’s listened to what tourists and locals alike were looking for and delivered a seafood bounty that only Neptune himself could convey, or so they thought. It’s shocking that you can drive from Ormond to Ponce Inlet and actually find very few seafood restaurants, especially the likes of Neptune’s, casual, family-friendly, affordable and right on the beach. While Neptune’s may not have ocean views or the lofty prices to

go with it, you can step out the door and 1 block to the east, walk right into the Atlantic Ocean. They are located right in the heart of Daytona Beach at the corner of A.1.A. beachside, and International Speedway Boulevard, with plenty of parking, sports and music. Visit them for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even a late night menu. Start your day with Shrimp & Grits, a Big American Breakfast or Three Egg Omelet, even Cinnamon French Toast. All breakfast items are served from 8 AM-11 AM. Family-friendly, Neptune’s breakfast menu offers selections for the little guppies as well. For lunch why not try appetizers such as Florida Gator, Shark, Mahi and Boom Boom Shrimp? Also Calamari and Clam Strip Baskets, even Ahi Tuna. Enjoy a hearty bowl of New England Clam Chowder and a fresh Salad. For lunch or dinner you will find scrumptious tastes from the sea such as a Crab Cake Sandwich or Fish & Shrimp Tacos. And everyone in your group is guaranteed to find something they like on Neptune’s menu such as a Philly Cheese steak or Neptune Burger or Wings. Also Alfredo selections, Steak Dinner and Baby Back Ribs are

still available at Neptune’s. The Neptune’s Treasure offers up hand-breaded Fried Shrimp and Fried Fish with their amazing hushpuppies. My personal go-to, two hardy clusters of Snow Crab Legs, The Fresh Catch of the Day, Seafood Pasta or a Steamed Platter, all promise to be favorites. For the hearty appetite, a whole Lobster, stuffed and served with drawn butter and hushpuppies is only $19.95. You can expect daily specials like an authentic Lobster Roll. But more then just a restaurant with an amazing seafood menu, Neptune’s Sports Pub & Cafe is a destination. For your entertainment pleasure, 20 plus TV’s are available for all sporting events, electronic darts, pool tables, shuffleboard or Tap TV Trivia. The massive bar is home to Neptune’s feature cocktails and you can even take home a Neptune’s mug. Happy hour is offered Monday through Friday from 4 PM-7 PM. Expect to have a good time! The proprietors of Neptune’s Sports Pub & Cafe also invite you to visit one of their sister locations such as Neptune’s on Main Street,

Registration forms are available at the Port Orange Parks & Recreation Department or online. $15 for first event, and $5 for each additional event. (extra fees apply for golf and softball)

Please mail or drop off registration form at the Port Orange Parks & Recreation office. 4655 City Center Circle, Port Orange, FL 32129 Contact Hannah Merlo at 386-506-5854 or for questions.



The Terrace “Where Love is Love”, also located at 415 Main Street, or Mango’s Cafe for breakfast or luch at Perry’s Ocean Edge Resort along with a popular tiki bar right on the ocean. For more information you can call (386) 256-2536.

FIND THE PERFECT FOOD MATCH FOR YOUR BEER Pairing beer and food can be an overwhelming task. We want to help you sound like a pro when it comes to choosing the right combo. Beer has an amazing capacity to pair with a large variety of foods which makes it appropriate for almost every occasion. According to, beer may actually be more food-friendly than wine. Different beers are better during different seasons and can taste even better when served in the right glass, according to If there is a specific beer that you like, start there then seek the right food to pair it to. There are plenty of online sources that will help you choose the perfect combination like,,,, and The ‘Beer and Food Pairing Guide’ at Here are a few of their suggestions on how best to pair your beer: Ale - This type of beer usually pairs well with burgers, buffalo wings, fried food, pizza and stakes. Blonde Ale/Cream Ale is best served with sweet, hot and spicy foods like Asian dishes, also with salsa, jalapenos and chili, salads, salmon and Monterey Jack Cheese. American Wheat Ale is best served with oil-cooked garlic shrimp and seared scallops. Amber Ale usually pairs with smoky and aromatic flavors, chilly, BBQ ribs, grilled chicken, burgers and ribs. Hearty foods like smoked sausage, roast beef, lamb and roasted pork go well with Brown Ale. Lager - Lager can be easily paired with shellfish, light seafood, sushi, grilled pork and chicken; light pasta dishes, Asian food and spicy food. Light Lager goes well with lemongrass, ginger, garlic, cilantro, spring rolls and salads. American Pale Lager is the perfect contrast to spicy cuisines. Amber lager pairs well with sundried tomato reduction sauces, balanced hopping complements foods flavored with basil and oregano. Pilsner - This type of beer can be easily paired with American cheese, Muenster, Havarti, and Monterey Jack cheeses, salads, spicy foods like Asian and Mexican food, light seafood, salmon, tuna and other high-fat, oily fish and with marbled meats, as well as trout and asparagus. Porter - Porter pairs well with smoked foods, bacon, barbecue, sausage, meats, bacon, rich stews, chili, complements chocolate, espresso and coffee-flavored desserts and soft, creamy cheeses. Stout - This beer goes very well with nutty and braised dishes, dishes with brown, savory sauces, roasted foods, smoked foods, barbecued/grilled foods, salty foods, oysters, chocolate and desserts. The sources mentioned above also offer some general guidelines you might like to consider when pairing food and beer: 1. Complementing tastes – this is something you can’t go wrong with, pair fish with light beer and dessert with fruity and wheat beer. 2. Use beer as a palette cleanser – dishes that have strong and overpowering palette like spicy and fatty food, need a light beer to provide relief from the heat. The carbonation naturally makes most of the beers ideal options for cleansing the palate. Example for that is our personal favorite, pizza and pilsner. 3. Contrast without overpowering – contrasting beer and food can be often more memorable than complementing them. Pick a dish or beer that has a strong, distinct flavor and pair it with a partner that is not going to overwhelm and overpower the taste of the other. Perfect example: oysters and stout, traditional Thanksgiving turkey and brown ale. 4. Go regional but have some reservations – you can explore your options by pairing German beer with German food or Mexican beer with Mexican food. International restaurants sometimes offer beer from the country they are representing and will give you advice on how to pair the food and beer from the respective country. It is always interesting and fun to try out new and unique pairings. Let’s not forget that taste is subjective and what works for you might not work for someone else. Be open-minded and experiment with your taste buds.

“Beer, if drunk in moderation, softens the temper, cheers the spirit and promotes health.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

For February 2018 AQUARIUS (JAN. 21-FEB.18): You will be filled with nervous energy, but, even if you don’t have all the pieces of the jigsaw, you will find out how to organize your life to get the most out of it. Your biorhythms will be at the bottom of the curve and make you sleep longer, but there will be nothing serious or problematic about this. You will seek the best way to move forward, even though it will be a period of ups and downs. Things will be too uncertain to be achieved and you will need to rework your plans. You will certainly need to set up a new way of life to achieve what really motivates you. Your private life will follow a dynamic path and you could fall in love at first sight. Delay the moment you make a definitive decision as long as possible. Don’t throw yourself at people, or they could find you intrusive. From the 19th, deal with business matters circumspectly and cautiously. Someone could try to deceive you. PISCES (FEB.18-MAR. 20): You will prefer to forget what disturbs you than confront it. Those around you will put right everything that is missing and it will be a real challenge to succeed in bringing you back down to reality. You will have one wish only: to put on your backpack and go off to discover faraway lands. Unfortunately, you will have to face your responsibilities. You will need to deploy reserves of patience and energy to remain focused. You will give the perfect illusion of being in full control of your means and this won’t just be an illusion. All your senses will be awakened and your intuition will be disconcerting. You will identify people in less time than you could say the word and you will know immediately whether things would work between you. You will give in to your ideas of escape and will be reproached for your carefree approach. The contracts you sign will be to your advantage. Luck will be on your side. ARIES (MAR. 21-APR. 20): You will be shaken up and feel uncomfortable and must learn not to clash systematically with those around you and the proposals on offer because you won’t have the last word. Uranus in partnership with your Sun will be affecting you directly. You will take refuge in action and that’s where you are at your best, but don’t try your luck too far. Save on your strength, watch your back and respect the speed limits. You’ll get through the storm. For those in a relationship either a break-up will be on the cards, or you will be in the process of assimilating one with difficulty. Make sure get rid of your aggression before you discuss matters. If you are single, Mars will be in trine aspect to Uranus and your Sun, and this could lead to falling in love at first sight. Make the most of this positive period to create memories. Don’t under-estimate the contrary forces around you. TAURUS (APR. 21-MAY 21): Personal development will be your main concern as well as your material possessions. The situation will force you to reflect on the most comfortable way possible of developing a whole new existence for you and your family. Things could also move very quickly regarding your progress at work. Everything will fall into place quite easily. In a few months, you will feel that you have made the right choice. For those in a relationship, you will be seeking to commit for the long term and guarantee a safe haven for your family life. Hang on to what is important and support your partner. If you are single, you will be going through a period of profound questioning. However, someone will be ready to accompany you on your way, so be less distant. Now will be the time to take drastic decisions and make a few choices. Question things, as you could find a “heart of gold” on your new path. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 21): You will find it hard to be optimistic and your desire for progress won’t necessarily be very well focused. You’re going to have to accept that you will be living in an unsettled climate for some time, so turn this to your advantage. Try to keep calm over the next few days. Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn in your sector of change will cause you concern and you will question everything so try to be calm. You will have every chance of success in your new life projects. Let time do its work and you will be fortunate enough to enjoy a romance that will be in line with your desires. Your heart and body will be in harmony and you will finally be able to rest in the arms of the one you love. Don’t let your negative ideas get the upper hand, or you will put off the day when good times awaiting you will arrive. Don’t keep on asking questions, or people could avoid you. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 20): Be vigilant where contracts are concerned and read the small print at the bottom, especially as you will find it hard to express yourself at the moment, and will prefer to observe rather than take action. Don’t be on the defensive or you could miss some opportunities. Vigilance won’t mean withdrawing into yourself. You will still have those around you, who will be trustworthy and able to be counted upon, even in difficulty. This period will enable you to evaluate all your abilities. You will be like a “dear little thing” that needs love and protection. You will need affection and encouragement, and attract sympathy without opening your mouth. The situation will give you doubts. However, you will be on the right track, as soon as you make your creative flair a priority and use the constructive side of your imagination. A sunny environment will do you good and enable you to regain your zest for life smoothly. LEO (JULY 21-AUG. 22): Mars will give you the energy to act on the inertia holding back

your everyday life. You will feel able to move mountains, but don’t prejudge your strength in advance or you could suffer from extreme fatigue. An ill-advised attitude could cause you some frustration and as you will have a tendency to be in denial and not listen too much to yourself, you could feel a slight reduction in energy. Be more flexible in your principles and instead of tackling things head-on, approach the situation more gradually. Channel your efforts, as this will help the situation move forward and eventually in the right direction, even if things go slowly. You will be preoccupied with relationship matters at an everyday level. You will want a new approach to your love-life, as in everything else, but you won’t know where to start on a day-to-day basis. Ask yourself some serious questions: is your relationship affected by practical concerns that need resolving urgently? VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22): You will sense the extent to which change will be on the way. Everything you have started up these last years will be ready to take shape. The shaking up of your private life and changing situations were a lot. Now will be the time to come to some conclusions and renew your achievements. You will know who you are and which path to follow. This will be a period that will bear you aloft and call your fears, hopes and ideas into question. Moving forward and setting things up will no doubt be the words for you. You will need to know the right time and establish your conditions. Relationships that are bogged down won’t bring you anything new. Make plans. The stars will be moving slowly, but you will move forward. Whatever the verdict, it will be the right one and you will be ready to move on to other things. You will be lucky to encounter love, so don’t turn down this nod. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22): You were afraid of being alone during this period, but you will ultimately preserve your relationships with those around you. If your family or friends are distant for a few days, be ready to use these moments to your advantage. Make the most of things to launch into new challenges or invest in your work in depth. You will be more able to identify your true objectives. Work on your negative emotions and you will be pleasantly surprised to see the obstacles on your path smoothed over. You will find it hard to overcome some situations through lack of self-confidence and won’t have fully got to grips with your potential. The stars will be restrictive, but you will turn the corner on your difficulties. At the beginning of the month, Venus and Mercury will favor dialogue and intimacy. You will have the right circumstances for tackling the beginning of a year that you were so afraid of. Take a holiday. Make the most of these moments of relaxation. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21): You have become rather vulnerable in terms of sensitivity and your emotions. You will look at everything under the microscope and sometimes will overdo it or not do enough. You will need to control your excessive optimism. You have a gift for looking at reality through X-ray eyes and you will have the means to calm your up-and-down moods. Be vigilant in material concerns. You will be submerged by a wave of love for the entire planet and want to save the world. This is a period when you will be so tuned into your partner that people will find it touching. However, in everyday matters, you won’t always be on the same wavelength and you could frustrate your other half without realizing. The atmosphere will seem heavy-going in your love-life and you will be looking for ways out anywhere you can. Wait till things pass. In a few weeks, you will see things more clearly and be able to define your needs and expectations from your relationships. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 20): From the beginning of the month, Mars and Uranus will galvanize you into action, but you won’t feel any calmer. The large planets will lead you into endless contradictions and you won’t understand what you are doing there. Doubts, dreams, feelings and troubles will be your lot, thanks to the positions of Saturn and Pluto. You’re going to have to deal with this and leave your demands and certainties aside. Otherwise, you will be strengthened by this situation, managing to overcome your fears and the uncomfortable feeling. Persuade yourself to make plans for the future. These will have more chances of being realized, if you learn to visualize them and consider them as achieved. You will refuse to change your lifestyle for love. Don’t throw yourself body and soul into the first adventure that comes along. You will certainly be sincere, but others won’t be as much as you are. If you found this out, you would feel very depressed. CAPRICORN (DEC. 21-JAN. 20): You will be affected by the current transits and feel tired. The coming months will enable you to move progressively forward to improve your situation. You will be caught up in the torment of change. Don’t give in to a fatalistic view that would involve your refusal to get involved, or putting up barriers against those who undermine you. Start working on yourself. You will discuss what has been standing in your way for long months and regain your energy and confidence in life. Take back control of your relationship, or get your life back under control. From the second week of the month, the situation will become tense and ready to implode. It will be time to have a close look at things. If you are single, your love-life will have difficulty in breaking with old ways. Open your eyes and your heart, as it will soon be your turn. You will soon have something to rejoice about and feel fulfilled. Courtesy of
