HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2013: This year others, both from your professional and personal life, constantly seek you out. Their requests will run the scale of possibilities, and some of them could be excuses just to be around you. If single, your popularity is undeniable. Know that you don’t need to commit unless you want to. If attached, the two of you enjoy each other’s company and want to spend more time together. You even might schedule that long-discussed vacation. Cancer handles your funds too carelessly. Seek advice elsewhere. A baby born today has a sun in Sagittarius and a moon in Gemini if born before 10:17 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Cancer.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • Return calls as soon as possible, and schedule a meeting quickly. Listen to your inner voice in the afternoon.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Weigh the pros and cons of a risk. What seems good in the morning might feel like a bad bet by late afternoon.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • You will head into the morning determined to follow through on a call or meeting that evaded your attention yesterday.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • You could start off the day on the wrong foot, but by the end of it, you’ll be smiling despite the fact that a roommate or loved one seems irritated about an issue.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Pivotal meetings in the morning will force you to take stock of your life. By the afternoon, a quieter, more sensitive mood weaves through your day.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You’ll have a discussion with someone in power whom you might have considered a problem. It will turn out that you were worried unnecessarily.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You might be more aware of a boss and his or her expectations. In a sense, you tend to go along with this person’s ideas probably more than you need to.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Keep reaching out to a key associate or adviser who is an excellent source of information and who serves as your confidant.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Deal with others directly. Do not delegate; otherwise, you could feel very uncomfortable with the results.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • Others defer to you frequently. Your dominance and how you see a situation could change radically.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • Pace yourself; you have a lot to accomplish. An unexpected matter needs resolution. First you need to detach in order to find the right answer.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Your creativity emerges, which might make you rather unpredictable. A friend or associate might decide to join in the fun.
