Aquarius you may feel as if you need to button your lips

Horoscopes for Dec. 19

  • Dec. 19, 2017 1:30 a.m.

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you open up to new ideas and learn to listen to your sixth sense. You will emphasize the importance of expanding your circle of friends.

With that expansion comes the realization of at least one long-term dream. If you are single, you could meet The One sometime this year. Don’t settle; you will know when you meet the right person. If you are attached, the two of you express greater happiness together. You will make a stronger commitment to each other as well. SCORPIO is lucky for you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Your determination manifests in such a way that others see its impact. People observe and admire your drive, and might even decide to give it a try in their own lives. A partner or close associate is likely to appear and add fun to the moment. Tonight: A force to be dealt with.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You initially might hesitate to pursue a long-term goal, but later will decide to go for it. Someone clearly celebrates your commitment. You might opt to start sharing more of yourself with certain friends. As a result, your bonds will strengthen. Tonight: Consider opening up.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

A partner seems to be less generous in several ways, not just financially. You will need to come to an understanding about what ails this person. Initiate a conversation, but know that he or she might be able to explain only so much. Tonight: Spend quality time with a dear friend.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Others tend to dominate. You might find that an associate wants your attention. Understand that this person will need some long-term nurturing as he or she transforms his or her attitude. Be sure that you want this type of experience before leaping in. Tonight: Listen well.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Open up to a new idea that seems quite revolutionary. Someone might praise your willingness to venture out. Try to look at a real estate investment or a domestic matter more positively. The results will reflect your open thinking. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Others want to tap into your creativity. You view these implicit inquiries for help as flattering. Brainstorming with different people allows your energy to flow. Do not hesitate to ask for more of what you want. Be your imaginative self. Tonight: Join a friend for dinner.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Demands on the homefront expand exponentially. You might have your hands full, and could try to take some shortcuts. Be careful, as you don’t want to cause yourself a problem later; consider asking for a loved one’s help instead. Tonight: Reach out to a friend at a distance.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your smile expresses a satisfied mood. You have put yourself on the line to achieve as much as you can, and you have met the bar.

Reach out to a child or loved one who might need some of your help. You’ll express the holiday spirit to the fullest. Tonight: Put on some music.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You sense a new resilience within you, though you’ll choose not to express it. Someone might want to pitch in and help you with your holiday shopping. By accepting this person’s offer, you’re likely to find the perfect gift for him or her as well. Tonight: Get some R and R.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A friend clues you in to what could be a perfect scenario for you to act out with a loved one. Be sure to thank this person for his or her thoughtful suggestion. A meeting provides lots of food for thought. Know that you are calling the shots. Tonight: Whatever makes you happy.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might feel as if you need to button your lips and refrain from discussing your holiday plans. Not everyone feels so gleeful about the holidays. You don’t want to upset someone who isn’t as upbeat as you are. Tonight: Wrap some gifts, or bake your favorite cookies.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You can’t help but zero in on the right course of action to take. Trust your intuitive abilities, and follow through on those moments of inspiration. A meeting or get-together will make you smile, as others seem extra enthusiastic. Tonight: Make time for a holiday concert.
