Cancer tensions may build around your personal life

Horoscopes for Dec. 11

  • Dec. 11, 2017 1:30 a.m.

This year your focus is on accomplishments and change. You have the unique ability to make waves and get extremely positive results. Do not disperse your energy in too many different directions. If you are single, you will be much happier with your romantic life as you approach your next birthday. A friendship could develop into a deeper bond. If you are attached, the two of you will pursue one of your mutual long-term dreams. Do not hold back — go for what you want! LIBRA proves to be a good friend.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Your fiery spirit emerges and makes the day more interesting than you had thought possible. You’ll attempt to be diplomatic, but if that doesn’t work, you could become a bit aggressive. Others might not understand your thought process. Tonight: Go along with a request.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Others will try to be diplomatic when presenting their different points of view. Just be mellow and agreeable, and together you’ll be able to resolve a problem. Your sense of humor emerges when dealing with a somewhat childlike personality. Tonight: Kick back and relax.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Make it your pleasure to add some romance to your day. You have high energy, and others can’t seem to stay away from you. Your creativity continues to emerge. You indirectly invigorate those around you. Make the most of the moment. Tonight: Time for excitement!

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Tension builds around your personal life. Take a deep breath rather than react. You will be better served if you choose your response carefully. Your outside commitments might be draining you. Make a point of stopping and getting more sleep. Tonight: Homeward bound.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Keep communication flowing. Others find interacting with you meaningful yet fun. Consider what is happening on the homefront. You will find the right words to encourage more mutuality with a roommate or partner. A resolution will appear soon. Tonight: Keep it light.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might not be able to rein in your feelings. You are vulnerable to overindulgence. Know that you can make an adjustment later, if need be. Enjoy the moment, as you don’t often get to be as happy-go-lucky as you are right now. Tonight: Be sure to balance your checkbook.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The spotlight is on you. You naturally are spontaneous, and today is no different. Remain upbeat and open to fast change. Be aware that you could become involved in a financial crisis. Hold off on making any agreements for now. Tonight: Let someone else pick up the tab.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Lie low, if possible. Share a project or some other important idea with others. Waiting to take action for several days will be important. Trust that you will know when the timing is right. A key person in your life might ask some interesting questions. Tonight: With a favorite person.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You might be involved in a lively discussion or meeting in the morning. Do not ignore any harsh comments, as they could help you tighten up a project. Listen to news openly. Friends surround you. Be sure to accept a forthcoming invitation. Tonight: Happy among the crowds.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Sometimes you feel as if too much falls on your shoulders. Look for a positive resolution to your dilemma. You like power, and you like control. Often with these characteristics comes heavier-than-normal responsibility. Tonight: Check in with an older friend or family member.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your unique perspective adds an interesting quality to the next few days. Others tend to seek you out. Though you consider yourself open to new concepts, you might experience some rigidity to certain concepts that are presented. Tonight: Send out cards to those at a distance.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You don’t always enjoy listening to a loved one’s commentary; nevertheless, you might be able to handle this better than usual right now. Your ability to say what you think could be somewhat diminished, as you worry about hurting others’ feelings. Tonight: Accept an offer.
