Horoscope for Dec. 17

December 17, 2009|By Holiday Mathis

Aries (March 21-April 19): Someone with a more scientific frame of mind will impress you with their talent for knowing the names of things.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): You get more things done when you're organized. Today that order is temporarily disrupted, but out of the chaos something new emerges.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): Family disharmony becomes a thing of the past. Everyone will get along better, and someone in particular will make a sacrifice that benefits the whole.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): You'll plead your case; however, even the most legitimate excuse may be lost on deaf ears. Consider that it might be best to make a compromise in favor of future harmony.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): A random adventure is just what is needed to shake loose a new creative idea. You are about to have the breakthrough you've been looking for.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Friendship is a gift. Consider the influence your friends have over you. Hang around only those who make you feel good about yourself.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Issues erupt around you, but very few of them are worth getting into. The only battle that is really worthwhile is the one in which you conquer your own weaknesses.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You'll feel inclined to be extremely hard on yourself. This is a direct reaction to your ambitions, which are so big that you realize you must grow to catch up with them.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Once you get your emotional needs met, you'll be effective. If it takes all day, it will be time well spent. When you get down to work, you will be able to accomplish amazing things in the span of one hour.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Regard the little details of a relationship as important -- greeting each other kindly, exchanging casual niceties and exiting on a happy note. These simple gestures may very well be the glue holding the thing together.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Steer clear of stale topics, dreary environments and people in overly serious moods. The people who are enjoying themselves are doing something right. Find out what it is.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): In a flattering and perhaps even validating gesture, you'll be offered what you don't really want. You will prove your diplomacy by making clear your position without hurting anyone's feelings.

Today's birthday (Dec. 17): This year is marked by your constant hunger for adventure. A mentor shows up to present new possibilities in January. Someone asks for your love and devotion in February. You'll travel and seek education in May. June brings an impressive payday. Aries and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are 20, 11, 5, 42 and 18.
