ARIES (March 21-April 19) Intensity is the earmark of the weekend. A relationship could become even more toasty. Flames and anger could come out of a confrontation, or if you avoid that calamity, flames and passion could be the other side of this sizzler. Love is there if nurtured.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You might be surprised at the size of your entourage. Be caring in your dealings, but if you have chosen the apple of your eye, let him or her realize how much you care. If still playing the field, try to keep everyone separate. You love being the cat's meow, which will happen only if you treat the other person the same way.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Pace yourself - you still have a lot of ground to cover. A surprise puts a big smile on your face. Go with this moment. You seem to be otherwise in the role of caretaker. Make the most out of the visits, cheer, and happy moments. It is your job to facilitate Christmas for others.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Your thoughts at holidays revolve around family dinners and visiting those you do not often see. This weekend, Cupid is in your neighborhood. Romance is in your eyes whether thinking about someone or being with that someone. Get into the mistletoe.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You could be quite happy at home the next few days. You will not be alone, in fact, with that many celebrations, dinners. Be the best host or hostess possible. You will know what to do with someone who has a case of the blues. Help them process.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Hear Christmas music and your mind goes to the different meanings of this holiday. Whether into Messiah or "Jingle Bells," you will be humming or singing away. Someone from a distance needs that infusion of happiness into their weekend. You can make that difference if you so choose.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You might be unusually snuggly the next few days; be careful of jealousy. In fact, as caring as you might seem, when jealousy appears, tense moments occur. Remember that Christmas is an emotionally laden holiday. Keep it light and loving. Your caring will be returned a little differently than you anticipated.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Count on feeling very different than you expected this Christmas. Someone hits the right key for you. Before you know it, you are madly in love. You, who rarely is demonstrative, become effusive about your feelings. You do not even need mistletoe. Need we say more?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You want to go backward and forget the next few days. You have decided this is a bah-humbug Christmas. We are what we think about. Manifest what you really want. Have fun creating scenarios, but to make it work, you must be alone on a one-to-one interaction.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Dream of your perfect, romantic Christmas. Think hard, and send this message out to the ethers. Go to friends' houses, even just to carol outside. Head for a party, even at the last minute. Where you are, the party is. In this type of convivial atmosphere, you create a near clone to your fantasy. Smile.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You are the lead character - at least in your Christmas. People surround you all weekend long. Meanwhile, wherever you are, you facilitate others' Christmas. Though some of you might have a Santa suit on, the remainder of you are acting like Santa. Fun leads to smooches in the back room.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Many of you have taken off and gone out of town. If you haven't, you will be swearing that you will next year. Opt for a different type of Christmas than what you have traditionally experienced. The more different the next few days are, the more you enjoy yourself.
