Horoscope for Dec. 16

December 16, 2009|By Holiday Mathis

Aries (March 21-April 19): Anticipation builds as you get closer to the date of an event. The hope you gather along this journey may be even sweeter than what you'll experience upon arrival, so savor this feeling.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): The world may be alive with possibilities, but your soul has a vision all its own, and it's singular. You are so driven to do one particular thing that it will be difficult to do anything else.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): Something you hear in the media will move you in a way you weren't expecting, producing a feeling of connection with the rest of humanity. Commonalities outweigh our differences.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): In the past, you have been accused of taking life too seriously. Since then, you've tempered sincerity with a spirit of playfulness. Others will be affected by your joyful mood.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): You are considering a change of venue. Should you pick up and move or just make a change in your routine? The stirring in your soul is getting louder.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Why everyone picks the same day to pay attention to you might be a mystery, but it's a welcome one. Even people you don't know well seem to make tiny efforts to befriend you.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): With so much trouble in the world, why muck around in heavy issues? Better to be funny, cheerful and friendly. Others depend on you to lift them from their doldrums.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Just when you thought all your hard work was for naught, you receive a compliment from the right person, and the problem you were working on breaks into something manageable.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Where talent and perseverance meet, success is soon to follow. But don't forget the people who help you along the way. You'll be reminded of how precious your loved ones are.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): More people should ask your opinion. You have a keen sense of the subtle intricacies of human interaction and an innate compassion that assumes and encourages the best in people.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You'll be reminded of all that could go wrong, and that's not such a bad thing. You need people who see the problems. They will help you avoid a pitfall.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): There's nothing out of the ordinary to celebrate, and yet, in some small way, you'll do so anyway. A spirit of optimistic possibility hovers around you.

Today's birthday (Dec. 16): Your personal magnetism is turned up this year. You'll charm everyone you meet. You'll strike upon a worthwhile venture in January and use your social power to make money in February. April brings travel. You'll prove your loyalty to someone in August. Leo and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are 10, 43, 29, 35 and 17.
