Horoscope: Dec. 8

December 08, 2009|By Holiday Mathis

Aries (March 21-April 19): Making difficult decisions is hard, but you have a way of seeing into the heart of a matter, which makes you an invaluable contributor to the decision-making process.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): If you are dissatisfied with your current job, know that it is only a steppingstone to your destiny. This is not the end of the story -- it's not even halfway through the beginning.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): Making excuses for other people is a signal of spurious virtue, which is why you don't do it. You believe we are all accountable for our own actions.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): Plato said, "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." You will live this Platonic advice, giving people the benefit of the doubt.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): If you were a 60-watt bulb, you'd figure out a way to burn at 65 watts without breaking glass. It's basic to your personality to push yourself to the limit.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The wisest thinkers are seldom the best speakers. And a powerful orator might not always have much to say. You, however, will display talent for thinking and speaking and make a maximum impact today.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Your ideas about who you are will be challenged. You will be reminded that you are more than the role you play to others.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): There is no need for you to be envious of all the attention a friend is getting. Instead, be a student of the situation. Take notes so you know what to do when it's your turn.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Whatever you are supposed to be doing, just show up. You may feel that you're not equipped for the job or that you're out of your league, but go anyway.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You've opened your mind to new possibilities on a variety of topics, from what's for dinner to with whom you'll spend the rest of your life. From this standpoint, the future is a glorious mystery.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You'll be among strangers, and intimidating ones to boot. Think about being expansive instead of contracting into yourself.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): You have something important to impart, and yet it won't be received as such unless you make the extra effort to ensure that you are heard. Get the full attention of your audience.

Today's birthday (Dec. 8): You go into this fresh era with a bold, energetic spirit. You'll enjoy the new respect others pay you in January. You'll put together a fantastic presentation in February and win a job or heart in the process. March is your chance to brush up on skills and gain the knowledge you need to enter a new career arena. Leo and Scorpio people adore you. Lucky numbers are: 44, 28, 31, 16 and 18.
