HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Dec. 13, 2012: This year you will have a new beginning in whatever area you deem necessary. Your personal power will expand because you live your word. Your magnetism soars, and if you are single, you will see direct results. If attached, curb a tendency to be me-oriented. Yes, it is an exciting year, but a relationship will succeed only with the combined efforts of two people. Capricorn is cautious. A baby born today has a sun and a moon in Sagittarius if born before 1:43 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Capricorn.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • • A matter from the recent past could come back to haunt you. Your instincts speak to you and show you the right path to follow.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • Reconsider a situation involving a close partner. You can work through nearly anything together, as long as you are able to remain detached.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • Reflect rather than react. A friend’s unpredictability could create uncertainty in your world. On the other hand, you just might find exactly what you’ve been looking for.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Dive right into work. You’ll discover the importance of clearing up as much as possible in the late afternoon.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • You feel the weekend in your bones, but you have a lot to do before then. As you attempt to accomplish everything you must, you could get bogged down in a project.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • If you’re considering the possibility of staying home more often, know that you’ll have to indulge this fantasy sooner or later.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • You could be overwhelmed by everything that falls into your lap. You are incapable of handling it all, as you are only human.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • • You could have a lot to say, and perhaps it is more than someone wants to hear. Be sensitive to this person.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Make a resolution in the morning, and you’ll stand a chance of making it so. Your creativity springs forward whenever there is a need for a solution.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • In the morning, you could have a case of the lazies or seem a bit passive. By midafternoon, what you initially had resisted doing becomes a piece of cake.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • Use the morning to the max. You could be inordinately lucky or just have a lot of support. Whatever you launch, do or decide seems destined to succeed.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Take charge of a project early on. You might feel as if you do not have enough time in the day to handle what you must.
