Taurus a lack of control does not appeal to you

Horoscopes for Dec. 8.

  • Dec. 8, 2017 9:44 a.m.

This year you open up to new experiences in a joyful way. This behavior will start to emerge sometime in the next few months. You might be difficult to restrain once you start enjoying your day-to-day life. If you are single, check out anyone you date carefully. You might attract someone who is hiding part of his or her life or is extremely withdrawn. If you are attached, the two of you benefit from frequent escapes from your daily life. You both are likely to follow through on a mutual interest that gets you involved in the community.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

The unexpected launches you into action in the morning. You handle communication with others well by being effective and finding a middle point in a conflict. Your ability to go from one topic to the next allows greater flexibility and success. Tonight: Decide to relax at home.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You might feel somewhat conflicted. However, this confusion could clear up as the day goes on. A lack of control does not appeal to you. Your willingness to express the appropriate feelings will help. Use good sense with your budget. Tonight: Time for some Friday night fun.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Make calls early in the day. You could be confused by what is happening around you. Don’t restrict a conversation with a new friend, even if you don’t like what you hear. Try to understand why this person has made the choices he or she has. Tonight: Head home first.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

You are able to make a considerable difference as you make strong choices. You do not need to have others agree with you. You will do what you feel is best, not only for you, but also for those around you. Communication picks up later in the day. Tonight: Hang out at home.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You bloom during the daylight hours. You could have difficulty stopping, as you are on a roll. Examine what you hear, and ask questions if need be. If your intuition tells you to examine what is happening in a certain area of your life, do. Tonight: Let someone else pick up the tab.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Keep your own counsel during the day. You could pick up on a problem, but you might not know where it stems from. Keep smiling, and note that the situation will evolve. Worry less. Later in the day your energy starts to soar. Confirm plans. Tonight: Enjoy the popularity.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Your energy and mood can draw many people toward you. In certain circumstances, you might feel as though you have taken on the role of the cheerleader for co-workers and/or friends. You do the job well, even if others don’t say “thank you.” Tonight: Be mysterious. Vanish.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You serve as a calm presence right now. At the same time, you have a fair share of responsibilities to manage. Your sense of humor emerges later in the day after a serious financial conversation. Be aware of how you are limiting yourself financially. Tonight: Find your friends.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Reach out to a loved one at a distance whom you might not visit enough. You will make all the difference in what happens to those around you. In a sense, your conversations with these people have a mutually positive impact. Talk about planning a visit. Tonight: With a friend.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

One-on-one relating elicits the results you desire. The unexpected seems to occur around a property-related matter and/or your personal life. Curb a tendency to avoid feeling the full range of your emotions. Share more of yourself. Tonight: Research a new spot to meet friends.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Others come toward you. Don’t fight the desire to socialize. Be aware of what you must do before letting go and getting into the moment. Friends surround you; however, one person seems a bit withdrawn. Know that he or she might need to speak to you. Tonight: In the limelight.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your ability to work through a problem emerges. You might have mixed feelings about what you should do. Test out your ideas with someone who has a very different perspective from yours, as he or she could be an excellent adviser and ally. Tonight: Switch gears. TGIF!
