HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Dec. 24, 2011: This year your birthday falls on a new moon, creating a new beginning in an area of your life. This lunar position bestows charisma and creativity. If you are single, you have a slew of admirers and would-be suitors. If attached, make sure to keep the balance between you as a couple. You could be a little too me-oriented. Capricorn reads through your defenses. A baby born today has a sun and moon in Capricorn.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You might not be as open as others would like. Your organizational abilities come out. When you assume the role of leader, no one worries. Everything will work out perfectly.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • Keep reaching out for distant friends you want to wish holiday cheer. News that heads in your direction indicates a faulty assumption.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Deal with one other person directly, and then another person, and then one more. Those contacts – especially with people you say “hi” and “bye” to, but no more – mean a lot. You might need to pitch in and help someone at the last minute. Make it your pleasure. Tonight: A little more tame than usual.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • Others request your talents and companionship. Though a sudden change could toss plans to the wayside, you accomplish a lot quite quickly.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • You emanate joy nearly everywhere, yet suddenly you become very practical. You will be perpetually making adjustments right now.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You wake up acting like a 5-year-old getting ready to greet Christmas. Every so often, the child in you emerges. What perfect timing!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • Approach a situation with more understanding than many others. You understand what is needed at this point; be determined to give just that.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • • You might be very happy at the thought of the upcoming holiday. Or you could be overwhelmed and/or tired of the celebration.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Last-minute errands could have you running, whether you like it or not. Though many of you have your day well planned, you still can break out to call someone.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • You glide through the day, perhaps the result of excellent planning, but also because you don’t have too many expectations.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • A general feeling of malaise or concern permeates your mood. If you haven’t connected with a key person, don’t stand on ceremony – make it so.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • • Zero in on the moment. At the last minute, you could opt to invite friends over, or join friends at some point in the day.
