HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Dec. 27, 2012: This year you often will swing back and forth between being intellectual and being highly emotional. Some of you might try to control this seesaw of sentiments. Accept that this is unlikely to change any time in the near future. If single, this back-and-forth could chase away a potential suitor, but come summer, you are likely to meet someone who enjoys your changeability and accepts you as you are. If attached, your sweetie might wonder what is going on. You need to accept that his or her responses could be different from what you’d expect. Cancer plays devil’s advocate. A baby born today has a sun in Capricorn and a moon in Gemini if born before 12:06 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Cancer.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • Use the morning for an important talk or meeting. By midafternoon, you could be conflicted or irritated about a situation.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Taking a hard look at recent expenditures might be more necessary than you think. Do not let someone’s opinion trigger an argument – just let it go.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • You are full of energy and could be difficult to find, according to more than a few people.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Make it OK to move slowly in the morning. Accept and understand what you have been through as of late.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Use the morning to the max when dealing with others. People will tend to be more responsive then. You actually might decide to keep to yourself in the afternoon.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • • Rethink a decision more carefully. Take your time. In the afternoon, test out your conclusion. You might be causing yourself a problem if you move ahead blindly.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Your mind drifts to matters beyond the here-and-now. What will it take to anchor you? A boss or key associate needs your time and attention later in the day.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Deal with someone or several different people on a one-on-one level. Rethink a personal matter more carefully.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Open up in the morning. A discussion could be quite animated with hostility or aggressiveness. In the afternoon, clear the air.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • You might find yourself caught in a financial quandary. For some, this scenario might include trying to make ends meet.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • You might surprise yourself with the feisty words that come out of your mouth. You have swallowed a lot of anger lately.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Your ingenuity could face a problem. The issue will keep rearing its ugly head until you face facts and open up a discussion.
