Horoscope for Dec. 31, 2009

Aries (March 21-April 19): Get in charge of your emotions -- they are your power source. The ability to control your own state of mind is the ingredient for success.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Do you believe in magic? The unexplained will happen. You can search for an explanation, but it’s more fun to accept the magic as a metaphor and go on your merry way.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): Relationships will be the focus of your end-of-the-decade review. Certain incidents will pop out as highlights. Note what you want to create more of and you’ll attract it.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): You don’t have to be doing anything special in order to shine. Just walking across a room is an activity that allows your light to radiate. And you’ll meet people who aren’t afraid to tell you how wonderful you are.


Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Your energetic investments pay off like a slot machine today, so pay attention to which machine you play: The nickel slots can only pay back in nickels.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Rejection is an inevitable part of being human, though when you cease being afraid of it, it happens less often. So be courageous. Reach out to the one who makes you nervous.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): It’s a special night: You’ll send the last decade out with style. Also, you will make eye contact with someone and for the first time really see the soul that’s behind those pretty windows.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You’ll be attractive tonight, and some people will want to monopolize your time. Mingle. You benefit from getting to know as many as possible.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You want change. Then you want security. You want to be organized. Then you want to not have to stick to a structure. Miraculously, you’ll get what you want when you want it.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Keep dreaming, and don’t worry if your plans for the new decade are hugely ambitious. Once you start working, you’ll have the support of a knowledgeable crew of people.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll be in the company of intellectually stimulating people, and this puts you in an enterprising mood. Terrific ideas will come to you as you socialize among your peers. Write them down lest you forget.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): You have the ability to relate to people from all walks of life, and you’ll be using that skill this afternoon to get a few important details squared away.

Today’s birthday (Dec. 31): Create a little mischief. Your originality is so appealing. You’ll come up with solutions that no one else will think of. A new endeavor will excite you in May. In June, you’ll get the necessary financing to do what you need to do. Aries and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are 44, 24, 31, 52 and 48.
