HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Dec. 9, 2013: This year you will feel torn between impulsiveness and careful planning. A mixture of both might deliver the results you seek. If single, refuse to toss yourself into a relationship just to have some company. If available, you are likely to meet someone quite interesting this year. If you are attached, the two of you might spend more time together than you typically do. Make sure you choose activities you both enjoy. Pisces can make you uptight. A baby born today has a sun in Sagittarius and a moon in Pisces.
