Today’s birthday (Monday, Dec. 19, 2016) This year you witness several important events. You have a tendency to fly off the handle, especially when dealing with roommates and loved ones. Don’t allow your feelings to evolve to that level; process them sooner. If you are single, you are likely to attract someone who can handle the changing dynamic of your personality. You will feel very lucky! If you are attached, you and your sweetie could get into the habit of kissing and making up. Do not judge each other so much, and try not to hold on to grievances. Virgo can be too fussy for your taste. Aries (March 21-April 19) You’ll be determined to finish all of your holiday errands. You easily could hit a problem with your schedule. You also might be confused by what someone else shares. Don’t worry — what’s important is that it makes sense to the other party. Tonight: Out until the wee hours. Taurus (April 20-May 20) You seem to be too focused on achieving a certain goal. You easily could feel discouraged by the amount of advice and feedback you are getting from friends or associates; their tune might be critical. Don’t let it get to you. Tonight: Take a deep breath, and walk away from tension.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) You have had a lot on your plate lately. You might wonder which way would be best to go, given your current energy level. You certainly don’t want to overwhelm yourself. Pressure from a respected person in your life could have you on edge. Tonight: Be good to yourself first. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Reach out to a loved one at a distance. This person often shares original ideas and thoughts. Know that you might not be able to end a problem as quickly as you’d like to. Be precise in all communication, and confirm meetings and times. Tonight: Enjoy wherever you are.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Keep a close eye on your funds. Confusion with money could occur, especially right now. It might take a while to separate what feels right from what feels wrong with a personal request. You might not be seeing eye to eye with someone else. Tonight: Finish your chores early!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) How you deal with a personal matter could change substantially, as a loved one demonstrates how hostile he or she can be. You are likely to hear every gripe this person has ever had about you. The chances for misunderstandings are high. Tonight: Try to keep the peace.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) A loved one might be difficult to deal with right now. Recognize that this person needs to calm down; otherwise, there is very little you can do to resolve the issue. Diplomacy works. Process rather than indulge your angry feelings. Tonight: Pace yourself for the holidays.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) A friend’s temper could flare up unexpectedly. Unfortunately, this outburst is just the beginning of what is heading down the pike. You might feel as if a partner or loved one is not being
understanding, which will increase your frustration level. Tonight: Get into the moment. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You might note an energy sag as you attempt to complete certain projects. A partner or loved one adds an element of confusion. Before you know it, you could be stressing out about a misunderstanding. Just let what is happening wash right over you. Tonight: Out late. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You could be off-kilter with the pressure of the holidays. Slow down your pace and face facts. It is possible that you might not get everything done, but don’t let that bring you down. You don’t want to push loved ones away. Tonight: Consider revamping your gift list.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) A partner could be demanding. You will make an enormous effort to meet this person’s needs, but the cost might be too high. Try a new approach, or do something very differently from how you have done it in the past. Your sense of humor emerges. Tonight: Enjoy a loved one. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Be more forthright with a loved one, but still try not to hurt his or her feelings. Some pent-up anger could backfire on you if you don’t express it appropriately. Understand that you could be misunderstood easily today. Tonight: Be as diplomatic as possible. The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult.
