Horoscope: Dec. 22

Aries (March 21-April 19): You’ll take the lead and then notice someone nipping at your heels, ready to slide into the top position as soon as you let up. Work with this person instead of against him.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): If you go along with what everyone else is doing, you’ll get mediocre results. This holds true in social and professional situations today. Creativity is attractive.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): Prestige will be more important to you. You deserve recognition, and it will feel right to get it. This is no time to modestly deflect accolades.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): A bright outlook will improve things across the board. Bring some emotional sunshine into the scene and things are not only more pleasant but they work better too.


Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll enjoy a lively debate or a game of wits. It’s not about who is smarter or more clever. Rather, it’s a way of interacting that adds some excitement (and perhaps chemistry) to the day.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You are a good actor today. You’ll be able to keep your feelings a secret. You might also use your skills to blend into an environment so that you can quietly observe.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Your household has always been lively, but now it’s causing you more stress. It will settle down shortly, but only after you make a small compromise.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Your attempt to always push forward meets with resistance from time to time, and blindly plowing ahead isn’t always the best idea. A break in the action will give you some downtime to plan your next move.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): There’s nothing better than being with your favorite person. If that’s not happening today, it will soon. Be patient.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A ringing phone breaks your peace and quiet. But this time it brings good news and opportunity.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The way the air hits your face as you walk down the street seems especially fresh. Even the car horns and the noises of society seem like the notes to a song you almost recognize.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): If you don’t feel like doing much, it might be because you’re waiting for something better. You will only be drawn to tasks that you can immediately recognize as being worthy of your intelligence and imagination.


Today’s birthday (Dec. 22): You bring enthusiasm and vitality to your endeavors of 2010. In January, your personal life percolates with new interest. You will promote a product and make a terrific profit in February. Your commitment to a company will be rewarded in May. Support a loved one’s learning process in August. Scorpio and Leo people adore you. Lucky numbers are 42, 2, 28, 35 and 18.
