The Washington Times Daily - - LIFE - HOL­I­DAY MATHIS

TO­DAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 12). Your op­ti­mism drives the ac­tion these last days of the year, and you’ll bring fresh hope to oth­ers, too. A home makeover or move will hap­pen in Fe­bru­ary. Big­ger amounts will be ex­changed in March. One re­la­tion­ship opens the door to more money and in­ter­est­ing so­cial de­vel­op­ments in the sum­mer. Pisces and Gemini adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 6, 10, 4, 33 and 7.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). “Bet­ter late than never,” the say­ing goes, but if you can help it, don’t be late. In fact, to­day there’s a won­der­ful prize (be­yond mak­ing a stel­lar im­pres­sion) for show­ing up early.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If it has a be­gin­ning, it has an end. This will work to your ad­van­tage to­day. An un­pleas­ant cir­cum­stance will meet its log­i­cal con­clu­sion, and you’ll fi­nally be able to move for­ward.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you pur­sue the con­flict, there will be win­ners and losers, and they’ll be one and the same. Choose peace in­stead and you won’t have to worry about this any­more.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Though it will be im­por­tant to chal­lenge the state­ment that seems false, it is even more im­por­tant to ques­tion the state­ment that seems true. Thor­ough in­ves­ti­ga­tion will yield pow­er­ful results.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Hard jobs will bring out the best in some and the worst in oth­ers. Then there are those who won’t even show up, and that about says it all. You, on the other hand, wel­come the chance to show your true grit.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your in­ner life needs a voice. Writ­ing it out will be good for your health, even if what you write isn’t ex­actly pos­i­tive. You’ll re­al­ize what’s at the root of your trou­ble and be­gin to solve the prob­lem.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). One size does not fit all. The shoe that fits you per­fectly would pinch your friend, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a won­der­ful re­la­tion­ship. Don’t let dif­fer­ences in life­style or world­view de­ter you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You rec­og­nize your in­flu­ence over an­other per­son, and it’s not a re­spon­si­bil­ity you take lightly. There’s honor in your choices and even more so in the way you read­ily ac­cept the con­se­quences of your ac­tions.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The way peo­ple be­have can be truly per­plex­ing. It will be most ben­e­fi­cial to ex­tend as much em­pa­thy as you can muster — to re­ally try to un­der­stand where this mys­ti­fy­ing per­son is com­ing from.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There are some jobs you like to do and other jobs you like to have done. Don’t waste the bet­ter part of your day on any­thing that falls into the lat­ter cat­e­gory.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Ex­pect­ing to be happy pushes hap­pi­ness away from you. So in­stead of an­tic­i­pat­ing great joy, com­mit to bring­ing your full at­ten­tion to an in­ter­est­ing chal­lenge. That’s when hap­pi­ness might just alight on your shoul­der.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re glad for the peace­ful days, and you’ll cer­tainly take as many of them as you can get. But when the com­pli­ca­tions start to pile up, that’s a good time, too. Great­ness is forged in times of strife.
