HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Dec. 20, 2010: This year, allow greater give-and-take with key people in your life. Unusual creativity will come forward, though you might need to give up some of what you feel is right. If single, many suitors seem to appear out of the ethers. Take your time choosing and committing. If attached, allow more give-and-take between you and your sweetie. Gemini often challenges you.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • A strong sense of direction defines your morning. The ability to flex becomes more important as the day continues.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • A steady path seems to be the only way to go most of the time. What happens and how you proceed become an issue when the unexpected starts running riot.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • Smile this morning. You have the capability to handle whatever you must. A key figure or situation could become quite demanding, fraught with unexpected developments.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • The smart moon child will decide to break from his or her usual routine. You need that extra time to center and perhaps finish off some holiday errands.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • You could be overwhelmed; many people seek you out. Though you focus on one issue at a time, you could be a little taken aback by the time you spend working with others.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Take the lead. Others knock on your door. Friends call requesting this or that. Be careful dealing with so many people. You might not be so effective.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • Keep reaching out for those at a distance. Make the most of the good humor of the moment. Don’t stand on ceremony with an unreturned call.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Others seem to know they have the power to make what they want happen. It nearly boils down to whether you are willing to be a player or you want to be a witness.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • Tackle as much as you can today. The real objective is to complete anything not related to the holiday season but is pending.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Your imagination will kick in, especially if you hit a financial brick wall. You’ll find a way to sail right through, and quickly at that.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Know your limits and understand where a family member is coming from. You upset others when you become unpredictable.
