Gemini should hang close to home if possible

Horoscopes for Dec. 10

This year you excel, especially when you need to clear your mind and/or take the lead. Others might be highly provocative at times, but you develop an inner focus that allows you to remain unaffected. You also benefit from time spent alone. If you are single, choose your sweetie with care. You might discover that someone you meet is not the person he or she projects. If you are attached, the two of you benefit from time spent alone together. You often opt to stay at home as a couple rather than go out and about. LIBRA might be very romantic.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You can push yourself only so far to achieve the results you desire. Fatigue marks your behavior. Be wise and squeeze in a nap when you can. You could be very busy this coming week. Don’t let a loved one rain on your parade. Tonight: Accept a last-minute invitation.

This Week: Be willing to let others take the lead.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

This Week: Your creativity flourishes.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

This Week: Focus on one item at a time.

This Week: You’ll perk up and feel more in control by Thursday.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This Week: You notice that the holiday spirit is unusually contagious.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You could be quite tired and not know which way to go in a personal matter. If you had a better sense of direction, you would be able to act. Opt to listen to some great music. Some of you will want to join a loved one. Tonight: Recharge your batteries with some extra R and R.

This Week: You remain in the limelight most of the week.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

One-on-one relating points to a quiet yet meaningful day. Whether you go off on an adventure or help a friend with his or her holiday shopping makes little difference. The company you keep tends to be rewarding and fun. Tonight: Go off and listen to some holiday music.
