HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Dec. 25, 2012: This year you have the ability to accomplish a lot, if you so choose. Understand that many people depend on you. Be careful, as they often will take your efforts, which go beyond the call of duty, for granted. If you decide to spend your time elsewhere, you will get a lot of flak. If you are single, romance gains your attention come summer. If you are attached, the summer heat ignites the flames of love once more. You and your partner will act like newlyweds. Gemini understands you very well, perhaps even better than you do. A baby born today has a sun in Capricorn and a moon in Gemini.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • An element of confusion runs through your morning. With Santa romping around the way he did last night, are you really that surprised?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • You might want to extend your hospitality once more. Knowing when to stop will be important. Others sometimes feel uncomfortable when you do so much.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • You wake up knowing that everything will be fine. Someone in your immediate circle does not have the same feeling.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • You likely have been a major force in making this day as special as it is. Take some time to step back and enjoy yourself.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • The more people you surround yourself with, the better you will feel. No one enjoys a party more than you do. A celebration just seems natural.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • You might be asking yourself why you always end up being the one held accountable. More often than not, you seem to be saddled with responsibility.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • Keep reaching out to that person whom you have not heard from in a while. What better time to call than now?
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Deal with a partner directly. You are very different people, but you have common interests.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Others seek you out, and not just Santa and his elves. Plan on hosting a gathering at your home in order to chat over eggnog or exchange gifts and good will.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • Pace yourself, as you might have a lot to do as a Santa stand-in. Christmas is not always easy for someone to handle alone.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • Others note the amusement in your smile and the twinkle in your eye. It seems as if you are going to stay mum and choose not to reveal the source of this happiness.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Tension builds at home. You want everything to be perfect, and that desire is impossible as long as human beings are involved.
