HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Dec. 29, 2010: This year, you often juggle your personal desires with a need to lead. This conflict remains resolvable. To see the path, you will need to detach. If single, you meet someone through friends, or a friendship could evolve into more. If attached, take on a joint life goal together. Scorpio can be a good friend.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • Challenges surround you. The real issue remains how to handle them. Some of you might want to hand the problem to someone else.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Accomplish as much as you can. A partner or associate can relate to your sense of direction. Schedule a discussion with someone who comes from a different point of view.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • A child or loved one might not intend to create a roadblock. Work with this person without forcing the issue.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Leaving home takes talent. You have been getting used to being close to the pad. Your creativity surges midday, helping create more reasons to stick close to home.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Someone is impervious to your messages. Try as you might, you cannot break through. Instead of trying or triggering, just forget it. This person will not relate until he or she is ready.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • A financial matter might get the best of you, perhaps creating a lot of negativity. You wonder what to do. Focus on communication; speak about what is bothering you. Others might have suggestions that open up your creativity.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Someone finds you to be very difficult at this moment. As a result, this person could blow up as you rarely have seen. Know that it is not just him or her; it takes two to cause such an explosion.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Refuse to take someone’s words personally. You could become very angry if you do. Defer the whole comment; deal with it in a few days. The afternoon sees you energized and magnetic.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Zero in on your priorities this morning. You still could hit a snafu. Give yourself a day or so before trying to dislodge the issue.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • Assume the lead once more, but also know that eventually you will step down and relax. Let others know this, too. Use this afternoon for getting together with others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Take an overview. Detach or imagine what it is like to be the other person. This afternoon, clear out some must-do’s.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • A partner or someone key to your life could be very difficult. Let go. You also don’t have support from as many people as you might like. Detach in the afternoon.
