If You Were Born Today, December 10: IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY, your horoscope tells that your year ahead will be a time to raise your sights higher and think big. Anything which will broaden your horizons and inject more adventure into your life will be good. You’ll be clearing out whatever is no longer necessary for the future, letting go old ambitions and even friendships which have passed their sell-by date. Money will come in if you keep up the pressure and don’t over spend. You’ll make a step up success-wise after mid next year.
|ARIES:If you have social or creative talents you should be making the effort to get them out on display to best advantage. You can turn your dreams into reality but you will have to discipline yourself. Venus will only be around for a few weeks so do not linger around too long. If you are on the lookout for a new romance, you could find it perhaps with someone slightly older. It may not be grand passion, but it could raise your social status.
|TAURUS:Socially charming and more light hearted than of late, you want to mix with a much wider range of people, and perhaps to explore new leisure activities. You want to be out of your normal rut to find stimulation with companions who will stretch your mind as well as keep you entertained. You’ll be spreading your favours around fairly generously in a rather enthusiastic way. You want a social life that is challenging, not dull, so breathe a little adventure into your activities.|
|GEMINI:You may spend money which you will do in style, since you want to pleasure your senses with what you buy. Going to one extreme or the other where cash is concerned is not helpful. If you save to the extent that you’re not able to give yourself the odd present or treat then you’ll feel deprived. But if you pleasure your senses and give yourself the goodies of life without limits then you will get the budget unbalanced. Moderation is the answer.
|CANCER:Your heart is definitely in the right place, so you’ll be ironing out difficulties, soothing ruffled feathers and generally putting your best diplomatic foot forward. If you’re trying to sell or recommend anything at the moment charm will be your greatest asset. Just remember to stand up for yourself. You are determined to keep relationships around you smooth and harmonious. But turning somersaults just to keep the peace or avoid confrontations isn’t always wise. Be firm but tactful if the need arises.|
|LEO:Maybe you are being just a touch too analytical about your feelings, standing back to dissect them, rather than plunging into emotional situations around you. If you can let go, you would find deeper connections and more fulfilling relationships. You are being critical rather than forgiving at the moment with loved ones. Try to say what you want without sounding too sharp. Your detachment can have its useful side since you can pick out what is worth saving and what is not.|
|VIRGO: Your ability to sparkle in the spotlight is certainly attracting a stream of compliments. You will be flirting, having fun, and trying to duck out of boring chores as much as possible. Children are bringing out the best in you now and if you happen not to have any then you’ll be positively child-like yourself in your open hearted determination to play as much as possible. You will be putting your feelings on the line, and hinting loudly in the direction of loved ones.|
|LIBRA:Adding elegant touches to your intimate surroundings is a top priority. Having beauty around will make you feel happier. Get out the colour charts, buy a few more pot plants and see what you can do. You are looking around seeing how you can make your immediate environment feel more comfortable, relaxing and stylish. But it does seem difficult for you to throw away outworn possessions or furniture. Clutter clearing will not only make your rooms look better, you’ll feel easier within yourself.|
|SCORPIO:Thoughtful gestures from everyday companions are making you feel admired and appreciated. You are beginning to discover you do not have to move far from your normal routines to find affection. It may not be grand passion but it is rather pleasant. You will go out of your way to smooth ruffled feathers, or avoid confrontations. A calm atmosphere makes you feel settled, where angry words get you more on edge than usual. Just remember to stand up for yourself at times.|
|SAGITTARIUSYou have a taste for what is fine and elegant at the moment. If your extravagances look like outrunning your budget then turn your creative skills to earning more money. All it takes is imagination and effort. Then you can afford a good many more treats. You want tangible gestures of affection to make you feel appreciated, either in cuddles or in presents. Venus in the sign after yours makes you emotionally rather fixed, at times rather possessive, even jealous. Try to be flexible.|
|CAPRICORN:With the influences around, it’s likely that admirers won’t be in short supply for a while. You will be wearing your heart on your sleeve, expressing your feelings of affection rather directly, and generally getting what you want. Though you may try too hard to gloss over imperfections in life, and maybe come across sounding a little sugary sweet. You will avoid confrontations since you can’t be bothered. But if you compromise too much, it may make you sound superficial or insincere.|
|AQUARIUS:Love may not come as easily at the moment, partly because you are holding back, maybe over sensitive to rejection. You feel you would rather shut yourself away than let your feelings be seen. Maybe you do need a quiet time, just don’t let opportunities for romance slide by because you cannot force yourself to speak out about what you need. You may sometimes feel lonely and under loved at the moment. It’s only a temporary phase and will soon be over.|
|PISCES:This is an emotionally light hearted patch when you will want to have a gang of buddies around. Safety in numbers will be your motto just for a while. Your freedom-loving streak is making you wary of too much intimacy at the moment and claustrophobic twosomes will not fit the bill. Make sure you communicate to loved ones that your rather detached manner is not a rejection of them. You are just in a butterfly mood, flitting happily around, not settling anywhere for long.|
