HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Dec. 22, 2012: This year you often will go to extremes. In the process of doing so, you couldn’t care less. It is how you feel after the fact that will cause you to employ some self-discipline. If single, your desirability speaks for itself. If attached, the two of you blend together well. You can count on your sweetie. Taurus can be seductive yet difficult. A baby born today has a sun in Capricorn and a moon in Taurus if born after 10:25 a.m. Before that time, the moon is in Aries.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • Your wildest dreams could not predict the importance of being money savvy today. As you weigh the pros and cons of an indulgence, an unexpected expense heads in. Hopefully, the path not involving an either/or choice appears.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Others associate you with stability, so they would be surprised to see you today! After basking in dreams of mistletoe and gratefulness, you suddenly could turn volatile.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • You wake up and think it is a perfect day, but by noon, that thought will be moot. Many of you might sense a disappointment heading your way.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Only when you can distance yourself from a demanding friend will the good times begin.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • You flourish in your private dream world, where you play out what could happen this Christmas. Necessity jolts you out of this reverie.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • You could get into being the one who is centered, as everyone around you is stressed. You Scorpios can be tough, but you also can be very caring.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • You seem determined to handle everything perfectly in the next few days. On another level, you feel inspired by a family member.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • You could be overwhelmed by others’ requests, as they feel more like demands. Just when things get mellow, another task heads your way.
