HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2012: This year you often are inspired to live out a dream or go for what you really want. Sometimes this path can be confusing. Friends and family who are observing you might become cynical. Don’t worry – you know what you are doing. If single, you could be drawn to a Capricorn or a very strong-willed individual. Working out this relationship might be important, but only you can make that decision. If attached, share more of your newfound inspiration by living it. Aries can be a bull in a china shop. A baby born today has a sun in Sagittarius and a moon in Pisces if born before 11:43 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Aries.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • You might react in a resistant manner to someone’s proposal. Whether it is good or bad, think about the consequences that your reactions might bring.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Act quickly, or you could miss out on an important opportunity. A conversation with an adviser points to making a more solid decision about present facts.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • Zero in on a goal. The unexpected surrounds a revelation, which allows you to move forward.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • Others look up to you. A surprising event occurs, which will force you to regroup. Understanding evolves after a conversation.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Work with a partner directly. Unusual information could toss your thinking into “revamp” mode. Verify that what you are hearing is legitimate and factual.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Others dominate the scene and want control. That’s OK – you have other fish to fry.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Easy works, but not everyone is in agreement with you. A family member knows how to push you hard.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • You might want to move past a problem involving someone talking too much. You already have tried to isolate yourself by screening calls.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Tension easily could get the best of you. Do you feel as if someone is dragging you down?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • You might be coming off stronger than you realize. If someone backs away, he or she probably has good reason. A little softness goes a long way.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • You can flex your budget, or you could consider robbing Peter to pay Paul. The best solution would be to pare down remaining gifts.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • • You can try positive thinking, but that might not bring you what you want. It is too late to write to Santa. Go out, and lasso in exactly what you would like.
