Sweet ladies, will it please you sit? Sir Harry,
Place you that side, I’ll take the charge of this.
His Grace is ent’ring. Nay, you must not freeze,
Two women plac’d together makes cold weather.

Horoscopes for 12.12.2019
This is a gambler’s week. How much of a gambler are we? Just about every Sagittarius fancies him or her self as bit of bonviant and having certain touch with, “The ponies.” Or whatever, however, that shows up.
One of my little Sagittarius brothers kept insisting that he would always win on lotto scratchers. The deal is, the odds favor the house. In other words? No way we’re winning more than we spend. I’m a bit unusual in that — it has happened — I have won at games of chance. Pure luck and the odds are in our favor, but only just. There’s always a little warning that goes with this kind of a “gambler’s transit,” though: never spend more than we are willing to lose. Only spend what we’re willing to admit might not come back right away. Might not a be a good week to be making “investments,” which, to other people might look like a gamble. Careful, not saying “don’t,” just suggesting we make sure.
Secrets to success? I’ll let you in on a little secret that’s proven very effective this holiday season: ground cardamom. Organic, non-GMO, ground cardamom. In the past, I’ve trotted out the old “cinnamon in the coffee” routine, and met with warm accolades, but not nearly as cool as the cardamom. That spice has some kind of weird texture, and it’s more pungent, so I have to be more circumspect and careful with dosage. A single shake from the bottle is all it takes. Why a classical spice like this?
