Today’s birthday (Saturday, Dec. 31, 2016) This year you open up to new ideas more readily than in the past. You will be more liberal in your views and in your approaches. Focus on being helpful and not adversarial. If you are single, you could meet someone from out of the blue. You might be surprised by the encounter, as it is likely to lead you into a different type of lifestyle. If you are attached, you might need to negotiate your financial concepts with your significant other. Perhaps it is a good idea for you to maintain separate checking accounts. Aquarius often enlightens you about other options. Aries (March 21-April 19) You are likely to fall into the role of “leader of the gang” today among your bevy of friends. You might start a party that you never intended to host. Listen to your inner voice, as it will guide you toward the path that is best for you. Tonight: Spread cheer and well wishes. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Your friends will whisper in your year. Try to keep yourself from going overboard in all forms of celebration. Share your resolutions; others will help make them so. Listen to what is being shared by loved ones. Tonight: A male friend could get a little too cheery for your taste! Gemini (May 21-June 20) Your mind stretches over many miles and covers an abundance of thoughts this special New Year’s. Be careful when you’re out, as a problem could easily occur. Let your mind wander, but make your body stay put. Tonight: Send well wishes to your favorite people.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) You don’t seem to agree with everything you are hearing. You actually might wonder about someone’s source of information. It won’t be easy, but you’ll want to consider distancing yourself from a close friend, at least for now. Tonight: Be with a favorite person.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) You are the king or queen of the Zodiac, at least in your eyes. Whether someone is the host of the party or perhaps just a supreme egotist, your usual “leader of the gang” role seems to fall to the wayside. Don’t worry — this situation won’t last forever. Tonight: Paint the town red.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You might be taken aback by how someone is handling pressure. What you are witnessing is the effect of suppressed anger surfacing. Distance yourself for now. Follow your instincts about where and with whom you want to greet 2017. Tonight: Make it OK to curl up with a book.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) No one knows how to orchestrate the perfect moment quite like you do. You have the ability to tie socializing, partying and romance into one wonderful knot. Be careful, as plans could backfire if you are not careful. Tonight: Let the party go on and on.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You are likely to opt to stay close to home. You have a natural way about you that draws many people toward you, so don’t even consider the possibility that you could be alone. Friends and loved ones will continue to seek you out. Tonight: The action is at your pad. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You might reach out to others and exchange well wishes all the way up until the stroke of midnight. You are unlikely to forget anyone; however, you’ll still want to reach out to those closest to you first. Tap into your inner child. Tonight: Greet the new year with a smile! Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) There is no reason to feel as if you have to splurge in order to bring in the new year. In fact, you will christen the start of 2017 with style, and also stay within your budget. Understand that no one can hold his or her ground like you can. Tonight: Go along with the moment. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You understand much more about others than you might realize. You have a firm grasp of the hows and whys of people’s different behaviors. Today, declare a moment just for you, and go off and do something you really love and value. Tonight: You are the leader of the gang. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Your smile goes a long way in creating much more of what you want. However, if you don’t ask for what you desire, how are you ever going to get it? Not everyone is a mind reader. In fact, only few are. Speak your mind! Tonight: Make sure you do what is best for you.
