HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2012: This year you often view effectiveness as a goal. Sometimes you could glide right over the deeper meaning of a situation. Emotions will dominate your day-to-day routine. If single, you could meet someone important through your work. If attached, the two of you make an excellent team when it comes to practical matters. Allow this excellence to float into your emotional bond. Gemini often irks you, as he or she seems to miss profound issues. A baby born today has a sun in Capricorn and a moon in Gemini.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • • You still might be going to extremes and might find yourself floating on the wave of excitement left over from all the celebrating.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Curb a tendency to want everything to go your way. This need for control could distance others. Do you really want that to happen?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Your smile attracts many people. A conversation could make someone feel misunderstood on some level. Allow heavy issues to float over you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Much is going on behind the scenes. You might not be ready to discuss these issues. A child or loved one might reflect your mood.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • • Do not hesitate to ask for what you want, even if you already feel indulged. Listen to your instincts with a family member.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Take charge of a situation. Others simply have a hard time moving in and handling difficult matters. Adjust your schedule.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Return calls, and focus on plans for a potential trip. Go with your feelings, even if you believe yourself to be rather vulnerable.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Deal with a partner directly. Yes, there might be an inherent misunderstanding, but right now, it might be best to let it go; otherwise, it could become worse.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Defer to others, and you might be surprised at what happens as a result. You could be more negative than you realize, and it will affect your relationships.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • You might be thinking about tomorrow already. You have, on some level, made an important decision that you are anxious to act on.
AQUARIUS (Jan.20-Feb.18) • • • • • Your mischievous personality emerges once more. You might have had a difficult realization about someone in your life, but try to think positively.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • You might want to slow down after the recent hectic pace of the holidays. A friend could decide to breeze right in through your door.
