HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2012: This year you often encounter challenging people with very different ideas. Take the best of those suggestions and use them to strengthen your life. Use care with your finances, as you frequently are a risk-taker; otherwise, you could be unhappy with the results. If single, from summer 2013 on, someone very special could enter your life. If attached, the two of you will enjoy each other even more. You socialize more with friends, yet you also enjoy private weekends together. Pisces often gets emotional. A baby born today has a sun in Sagittarius and a moon in Pisces.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • Pull back, and new insights will emerge. Incorporate them once you are sure that they are applicable. With so much on your plate, tension could soar.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Zero in on your priorities. Others need to know them if you want to have their support. A respected person in your life might be cynical no matter what you say.
