HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2013: This year you demand depth in your self-expression and values. Demand this high-caliber communication from yourself before you request the same from others. Otherwise, you could get a lot of negative feedback. Whether you like it or not, you are entering a new phase in relating. If single, the people you choose to date could be very different from your present “type.” If attached, you might throw your sweetie for quite a loop, as you seem to transform right in front of his or her eyes. Be understanding. A fellow Capricorn might be overly intense. A baby born today has a sun in Capricorn and a moon in Sagittarius if born before 10:01 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Capricorn.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You might not want your priorities to change, but a situation will force you to adjust them. Anger could dress up as sarcasm.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • You’ll relax as you take a look at the big picture. You could be overserious and not realize it. A quarrel could ensue if someone tries to lighten you up.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • You could be very social, but a loved one will manage to rein you in. You might be quite angry at this person’s actions, but try not to show your distaste.
