HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2011: This year you will respond to many different and possibly conflicting drives within you. You will want to be wise with money, yet carefree and a risk-taker. If single, a love relationship evolves through a friendship, if you are open. If attached, the two of you braid together the many dimensions of your bond. You accept rather than judge each other. Scorpio can be loyal but secretive. A baby born today has a sun in Capricorn and a moon in Scorpio. If born before 9:30 p.m. Pacific time, the sun is in Sagittarius.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Your sense of direction and high energy encourage completion, though you might be tempted by an offer or a new project.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • Defer to others, and you’ll find that you have less to do and will foster good will. Ask yourself why you need to be so in control, and try giving up that role.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • Make an effort to clear out key projects. Your high energy could be disruptive with a family member or a personal situation.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • You might want to see a situation differently or work with it. Your ability to move a project forward allows flexibility, not only for you, but also for others.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Listen to feedback. Nothing replaces the opinions and thoughts of others. Still, you might not be ready to absorb everything that is said.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • • Your unusual drive marks this holiday season. A child or loved one wants to participate and help organize. The phones ring. You return calls.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You could be taken aback by your unanticipated actions and/or feelings. Some issues need to be discussed and not shoved under the carpet, as you can see.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • • Continue as planned, but allow for spontaneity. Your choices will naturally be the correct ones, if you don’t lose sight of your long-term goals.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Listen to the drumbeats, making sure everything is going fine. Don’t push too hard to achieve certain goals. Slow down and catch your breath.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • Zero in on what you want, when you want. A meeting – even a business meeting – could turn into a fun get-together. Don’t limit yourself by keeping to your schedule.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • Visualize, and you are likely to create just that. Try to slow the pace, as you are carrying an enormous amount of responsibility.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • • Some of you might be traveling; others have loved ones from a distance coming in. You are on a hectic pace, one that you cannot stop – or so you think.
