Horoscope for Dec. 18

December 18, 2009|By Holiday Mathis

Aries (March 21-April 19): Like a light breeze blowing through an open window, your presence will fill the room with a welcome freshness.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Travel is in your short-term future. You like going away because you like coming back. It makes being at home all the more enjoyable.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): A song you hear today reminds you of a time when you were not as happy as you are now. It's a signal for you to acknowledge the many ways you've grown.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): You are usually so even keel. However, when an event really gets to you, you can react without thinking. Sometimes this leads to trouble, but today it makes you a hero.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Where things come easily, determination is not necessary. But you've chosen a competitive arena in which to play, and so you'll need more than the usual grit and stamina to succeed. Don't quit.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You will exhibit childlike qualities in the best sense of the word. You will laugh often and easily and see things as though for the first time. Your sense of wonder will be infectious.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): An urge to get out of town is tempered by a need to be financially conservative. There is a place near enough that will provide a sense of escape at a nice price.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): It might annoy you when someone refuses to discuss important matters in favor of retelling a joke. You'll recognize when a thoughtful approach is needed, and you'll keep the others on track.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A cherished memory comes in handy. Recalling a missed friend or relative brings comfort when you feel lonely and gives you an opportunity to recognize the great gift true companionship is.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you haven't been sleeping as well as you usually do, the spell of restlessness will be broken tonight. You'll see an improvement from here on out.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It might not be fun to think about balancing your checkbook or changing the oil in your car. And perhaps the mundane tasks can wait while you indulge in a daydream or an intriguing conversation.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Your knack for setting people at ease is as natural to you as your ability to perceive potential problems before they blow up. You are a workplace leader.

Today's birthday (Dec. 18): Your personal life evens out. Events that disrupted your flow in the past will no longer be a part of your experience. Your powers of concentration increase. Loving companions make this month a blast. Be generous in January. March opens up new income. Your lucky numbers are 21, 5, 43, 51 and 17.
