HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2013: This year excitement and the unexpected will prevent you from being bored. Your ability to flex will be critical to your success and happiness. Look at the next 12 months as an adventure in your life. If single, don’t commit until summer, at the earliest, even if you feel you have met your Romeo or Juliet. If attached, you will act like newfound lovers. Enjoy every moment! Cancer often demonstrates his or her caring for you. A baby born today has a sun in Sagittarius and a moon in Cancer.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • You might need a shake-up to get going. The alternative of a slow, lazy morning also could hold unusual appeal. How you choose to live is your call.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Your morning provides an insight that energizes communication. You’ll want to clear up a problem before you have a collision of wills.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • You might not be aware of all the assets you possess. An unpredictable person could make you feel as if a mini-revolution is about to begin.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • No one can squelch your energy, regardless of how hard others might try.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Take your time and consider your options if you witness someone acting unusal. Question how much you are coloring the moment with a bias before taking action.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • • Know that you can’t manipulate someone to do what you want. You’ll want to present a case for following your suggestion.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • Take a stand, and know your limits. Avoid getting into a contest of wills. Let others be and do what they want. Let experience be their teacher.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Forget about having a steady, scheduled day. The unexpected blows its winds in your direction, no matter how hard you try to dodge it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Your strength comes from detaching when the unexpected occurs around a loved one. Initiate discussions on an individual level.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Others continue to run with the ball, which allows you to have more time for last-minute holiday details.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • Recognize that you must deal with the more boring yet important aspects of your life. Temptations will point to fun happenings, but say “no” for now.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • You might wonder why someone always seems to trigger you. Decide to be impervious to this person’s actions.
