Horoscopes for Dec. 16

  • Dec. 16, 2017 1:30 a.m.

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you express a unique kind of creativity. Others often seek you out for advice or for help sleuthing through problems.

You find interesting ways of resolving the seemingly unresolvable. If you are single, you could meet many different potential suitors. Know that Mr. or Ms. Right could be right around the corner! If you are attached, the two of you happily hop around to different sets of friends with totally diverse interests. You might decide to plan on taking a series of courses together. A fellow SAGITTARIUS adds more excitement to your life!

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

A thought is likely to go from a fantasy to a materialized concept. You will enjoy the surprises you encounter along the way. You get into what is happening, despite any obstacles that get in your way. Time will reflect the legitimacy of your idea. Tonight: Out and about.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Relate on a personal level. Your ability to get your point across to others might not be as powerful as you would like. State the same core message, perhaps in a different way, in order to help convey your message. Refuse to get uptight. Tonight: Throw yourself into the moment.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Communication might be off. Even with the best intentions and a willingness to go over what you are thinking several times, you might not be able to get your message across. Worry less about this glitch for now, and try again another time. Tonight: Out among the crowds.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

You like being the cook, the baker and the decorator. Though you might want to complain at times, don’t. Know that there are alternatives to your lifestyle and choices. Consider playing out the next holiday season differently. Tonight: Choose a favorite stress-buster.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You’ll want to pull back a bit in order to review an emotional situation. Events seem to occur at a pace that takes your breath away. It might seem as if you are putting out all kinds of fires today. Don’t fight the inevitable; just go with the flow. Tonight: Squeeze in a nap.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

A responsibility calls that could force a change of plans. You might not feel as if you have a choice. You would like to kick back and get into the holiday spirit after a gift-wrapping frenzy and perhaps a lengthy nap. Make a to-do list, if need be. Tonight: Hang out under the mistletoe.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You might want to change your choices. This is a workable plan, as long as you don’t upset the applecart for several loved ones. Choose to stay on course, and know that everything will work out in your favor. Tonight: Time to head to a favorite local spot for dinner.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You will opt to do some last-minute holiday shopping, whether it be for food or for whatever else you might need. If you are in the process of completing your gift list, you might find online buying easier and less of a hassle. Tonight: Remember that you have a budget.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Take the lead. You have a lot to do, but you’ll help motivate others to pitch in too. You won’t mind having a few people join you on your various last-minute errands. You could be very interested in what they share with you. Tonight: Get into the playfulness of the moment.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You could be overly worried about shopping, gift wrapping and everything else that is important in making your holiday run smoothly. Play it low-key today, especially if you want to keep a big surprise under wraps. Tonight: Stop for a favorite dessert on the way home.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

A friend proves to be a major distraction. You often grumble about this person, but if you are honest with yourself, you enjoy being around him or her. As long as this person is around, try to make the most of the moment. Tonight: Spontaneously bring a group of friends together.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You are likely to make important choices for you as well as a loved one. You might prefer to be with just this person and no one else. Reach out to a friend at a distance whom you don’t often get to see. You will enjoy the conversation the two of you have. Tonight: Now be a duo.
