HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Dec. 16, 2012: This year you seem much more willing to slow down and just chat with friends. You recognize that there is more to life than work – it is the people in your life that make a difference. If single, you will find that you have too many choices, if that’s even possible. If attached, you will want to socialize more often. Your sweetie might have to adjust to this change. Aquarius has some unusual yet fun ideas. A baby born today has a sun in Sagittarius and a moon in Aquarius.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • An innate sense of tension that causes you to distance yourself from others marks the beginning of the day. Try not to read into others’ behavior.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • You might want to take charge of a situation. Most likely, you will do just that. Your sense of humor helps you avoid being taken aback by someone’s cranky mood.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • You want to get past a problem. The best way is to detach and understand what is happening with the other party. Avoid holding a grudge, if possible.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • A partner is demanding, but you like how he or she is extremely attentive. Be willing to give back. You might feel as if your creativity is falling flat.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Others do not intend to be controlling; they simply are working through their issues. You cannot change their direction. Just be receptive to their conversations.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You enjoy yourself a lot more than in the recent past. When you hang out with your friends, the togetherness puts a spring in your step.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You might be a bit too sentimental for others, as you happily hang sprigs of mistletoe. Ultimately, you could feel a little deprived by a perceived lack of attention.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • Your playfulness seems to have gone out the back door. You don’t feel up to snuff or in the holiday spirit. Your imagination delights a loved one.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • • Returning calls, making plans and completing necessary chores could take you the whole day. Squeeze in some fun if you can. Why not?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • You could be a little too excessive with your spending right now. Come tomorrow, you could be shaking your head thinking about today.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Your openness charms many people. As a result, your social calendar could become very full. Someone you look up to might express some disapproval.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Someone convinces you, without any difficulty, that you need a break. Take off or vanish. You will want some personal time to recharge your battery.
