HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Dec. 29, 2012: This year you will make decisions about many different issues, but when it comes to following through on them, it could be a problem. If you are not 100 percent dedicated to a decision, don’t do it. If single, go with the flow, especially as the summer months approach. If attached, avoid petty arguments. Express your caring and your commitment to each other. Cancer has the same issue as you, but expresses it differently. A baby born today has a sun in Capricorn and a moon in Cancer if born before 11:45 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Leo.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • Tension builds. Choose to take a much-needed, unscheduled day off. You enjoy spontaneity. You also might have some observations to think about.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • Keep plans light and easy. Write a few thank-you notes, work on your New Year’s wishes and make or confirm plans to greet 2013.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • You might be juggling your finances or find yourself having to rob Peter to pay Paul. Stop and take a hard look at the situation.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • Enjoy others’ attention, but don’t forget about someone who could be far more in need of it, and who could use some emotional support as well.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Step away from the daily grind for a bit. Spend the day alone or with one other person. Screen calls, and play it low-key.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Get together with friends. The activity is not important, as long as you do not assume the lead. Plans could change quite suddenly if you are single.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Deal with an older friend or relative directly. You have been avoiding this situation. You could continue this same avoidance game, or start the new year on the right path.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Detach from your immediate surroundings, as you could be overtired and withdrawn. Honor a need to revitalize yourself.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • When was the last time you spent some quiet one-on-one time with a certain loved one?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Defer to a friend or loved one. You might discover that letting go could be difficult, but worthwhile.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • Make a push to get errands done, and don’t forget to send out your Christmas thank-you’s. Plans to join a friend later could be fun.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Express your concern and caring to a loved one. Whatever you are seeing, know that this person might not even be aware of it.
