YOUR horoscope

The Western Star - - LIFE - By Fran­cis Drake

For Sun­day, Dec. 9, 2018 ARIES

(March 21 to April 19)

Stay calm and re­laxed to­day, be­cause quite likely, your ex­change with a par­ent or boss will be very in­tense and emo­tional. The key is to be calm and guard against knee­jerk re­ac­tions.

TAURUS

(April 20 to May 20)

Def­i­nitely avoid get­ting in­volved in dis­cus­sions about pol­i­tics, re­li­gion or racial is­sues to­day, be­cause peo­ple will be­come in­tense and ex­cited. (Pos­si­bly violent.) Steer clear of this!

GEMINI

(May 21 to June 20)

Post­pone im­por­tant dis­cus­sions about how to share or di­vide some­thing, be­cause peo­ple do not feel gen­er­ous to­day. They will hold on very tightly to what they have.

CANCER

(June 21 to July 22)

Be pa­tient with partners and close friends, be­cause dis­cus­sions could be­come heated to­day. You also might at­tract some­one rather over­pow­er­ing to you. Stay chill.

LEO

(July 23 to Aug. 22)

Don’t try to in­tro­duce improvements at work to­day, be­cause you will be met with re­sis­tance. To­day peo­ple are very opin­ion­ated and guarded.

VIRGO

(Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)

Ro­mance is pas­sion­ate and over the top to­day! The stuff of movies. Keep in mind that this in­ten­sity is a tem­po­rary con­di­tion and don’t get too swept away.

LIBRA

(Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)

A fam­ily mem­ber might not take kindly to your sug­ges­tions about how to im­prove things at home. Step back and give this per­son some space. Go gen­tly.

SCOR­PIO

(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

Avoid ar­gu­ments and dis­putes with oth­ers, be­cause peo­ple are per­sua­sive, pushy and stuck in their own opin­ions to­day. Keep the con­ver­sa­tion light. Time for your fa­vorite ice cream.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)

You have firm ideas about how to han­dle your money and take care of your pos­ses­sions, even though oth­ers might not agree. (It never hurts to hear what some­one has to say.)

CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)

Stay calm to­day, be­cause you will have a ten­dency to over­re­act or take things too se­ri­ously. Life is too short for that. Fur­ther­more, your own peace of mind is too valu­able.

AQUAR­IUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)

Some­thing hid­den is go­ing on be­hind the scenes to­day. In a pos­i­tive way, this can en­cour­age re­search. In a neg­a­tive way, it en­cour­ages gos­sip.

PISCES

(Feb. 19 to March 20)

Don’t be in­tim­i­dated when talk­ing to a friend to­day or some­one in a group. We are all hu­man and we each have only 24 hours each day, whether rich or poor, or pow­er­ful or weak. Fac­toid.

YOU BORN TO­DAY

You are con­fi­dent, en­thu­si­as­tic, vig­or­ous and en­er­getic. You are hard­work­ing, dili­gent and ready for any chal­lenge. You have high ex­pec­ta­tions for your­self. It’s time to em­brace change and new op­por­tu­ni­ties. Ex­pect ex­cite­ment and stim­u­la­tion! Get ready to act fast. Make your per­sonal free­dom one of your goals this year. En­joy travel op­por­tu­ni­ties and chances to ex­pand your hori­zons. En­joy this fast-paced year!

ARIES

(March 21 to April 19)

Some­thing un­ex­pected might hap­pen to­day when talk­ing to a boss, par­ent or some­one in au­thor­ity, in­clud­ing the po­lice. Don’t over­re­act. Keep your cool so that you don’t say some­thing you will later re­gret.

TAURUS

(April 20 to May 20)

Travel plans will change to­day. They might be can­celed, resched­uled or de­layed. Like­wise, sched­ules for col­leges and univer­si­ties also might be un­re­li­able. Be alert.

GEMINI

(May 21 to June 20)

Make friends with your bank ac­count to­day so that you know what’s hap­pen­ing. Some­thing un­ex­pected could im­pact some­thing re­lated to debt, in­her­i­tances or shared prop­erty.

CANCER

(June 21 to July 22)

A friend or a partner will sur­prise you to­day. This per­son might say some­thing you least ex­pect, or per­haps he or she will make some de­mands. Think about things be­fore you re­spond.

LEO

(July 23 to Aug. 22)

Your work rou­tine will be in­ter­rupted to­day be­cause of com­puter crashes, staff short­ages, can­celed meet­ings or some­thing un­ex­pected. Give your­self ex­tra time to be ready for this. Be pre­pared.

VIRGO

(Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)

Take note, par­ents: Be ex­tra vig­i­lant to­day, be­cause this is an ac­ci­dent-prone day for your kids. Mean­while, so­cial oc­ca­sions might be can­celed or post­poned at the last minute. (Dis­ap­point­ing!)

LIBRA

(Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)

Small ap­pli­ances might break down to­day, or mi­nor break­ages could oc­cur be­cause some­thing un­ex­pected will im­pact your daily home rou­tine. Per­haps some­one un­ex­pected will be knock­ing on your door! (Or you might just burn the toast.)

SCOR­PIO

(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

This is a mildly ac­ci­dent-prone day for you, which means you have to pay at­ten­tion to ev­ery­thing you say and do. Be mind­ful and alert at all times.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)

Keep an eye on your money and your pos­ses­sions to­day, be­cause you might lose some­thing. Iron­i­cally, you also might find some­thing. It’s a crap­shoot!

CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)

To­day the Moon is in your sign at odds with wild, wacky Uranus. This makes you feel rest­less and in­de­pen­dent yet cau­tious and re­luc­tant to change.

AQUAR­IUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)

Tread care­fully to­day, be­cause this is an ac­ci­dent-prone day in vary­ing de­grees for ev­ery­one. Peo­ple are also in­clined to be ob­sessed, as if they have blin­ders on. Yikes!

PISCES

(Feb. 19 to March 20)

You might meet some­one un­usual to­day. Al­ter­na­tively, some­one you know might do some­thing sur­pris­ing. It’s not a bor­ing day!

YOU BORN TO­DAY

You are con­fi­dent and as­sertive. You are also warm, gen­er­ous and re­spon­sive to oth­ers. Ser­vice to oth­ers is your theme this year. Fo­cus on your per­sonal re­spon­si­bil­i­ties to fam­ily as well as your­self. Take care of your­self so you are a strong re­source. Nur­ture re­la­tion­ships that you value. Ex­plore the arts; en­roll in a class. Per­son­al­ize your home with trea­sures that have mean­ing.
