HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Dec. 10, 2009: This year, remain focused on your goals and long-term desires. If single, you could meet someone through your friends who makes you smile. If attached, the two of you had goals when you became a couple; eye the same goals and see if they still work. Libra is a very special friend.
