Horoscope for December 19


Courtesy: Marjorie Orr


IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be determined when it comes to cash. You’ll check over the fine print and dig your heels in until you get a fair deal. Whatever you attempt should work out better than you expect though sticking to the straight and narrow and working hard will bring more solid results. Loved ones won’t always be available for support so treat yourself in the quiet times. You will want more freedom to express your own original ideas.

ARIES: You’ll be determined to get to the bottom of one emotional problem which has been niggling at you. You’ll be pushing hard to persuade others to whatever it is that you want them to think. Try not to be so fixed about seeing things the way they are, that you can’t see any alternative. You are taking time and trouble to speak in as precise and effective a way as possible. Your ambitions will be helped by your communication skills, though you may come across as not emotional enough.
TAURUS:  You may get so wrapped up in one tiny obsessive detail that you won’t see the wood for the trees. What’ll be said today will be important, but everyone will seem a little bit gridlocked. No one will want to compromise, partly because they feel they might be humiliated if they give way. High flown topics may be fascinating more than usual with Mercury high flying in your chart. You seem to be coming across people from different backgrounds, different countries, which is keeping you constantly interested.
GEMINI:  Maybe you’ll be looking too much on the dark side now, seeing only problems. It may be you find that travel plans get blocked, or other situations which will irritate and frustrate you, then you’ll get very wound up. Try to ease up a little and laugh more. You want to get to the bottom of certain financial matters at the moment and will keep digging in your heels until certain people come clean. It is a time for negotiating, looking for compromises and fairer deals all round.
CANCER: You’ll have a great love of mystery, wanting to find out what’s going on in the deep, dark and secret corners. So you’ll be drawn to the hidden places in life. But it’s important that you sort out your own secrets before probing into anyone else’s. So don’t be confrontational since it won’t work. You are keen to see justice done and fairness. What you say is coming across as tolerant, well-balanced and impartial but you will not budge on what you truly believe.
LEO: The main thing to remember is that Pluto changes life a bit. It tries to get rid of things that are no longer any use to you, so it may be that old and outworn beliefs are being shifted out of your life, though you could also be pushing like mad pointing out to others where they are going wrong. You are seeing the flaws and inadequacies in work situations at the moment. You loathe muddle, chaos or sloppiness and won’t be backwards about saying so.
VIRGO:  You could get a little too pushy or forceful about trying to bring everyone round to your viewpoint. Or someone may be doing the same. If you can step back and be a little more detached, then it will work better. You’ll have to watch your methods of persuasion, because you’re likely to try to indoctrinate others. You may not be practical or good with tiny details at the moment, but you are being highly entertaining and rather mischievous.
LIBRA:  You’ll be able to solve difficult puzzles in your emotional life now, but don’t go so far down into the depths you end up only looking on the bleak side. Try to stay with one foot on the surface, and one foot deep down. That way you’ll be able to ask the searching questions you want and you’ll get answers. With Mercury tucked out of sight in one of your emotional houses, you may find your feelings cloud your judgement. You could be biased without knowing it.
SCORPIO:  Sometimes you can get a little bit frustrated when Pluto is around as it is now because you’ll feel you’re not getting your own way. You’ll then tend to get a little manipulative which can backfire. So watch that you’re not trying to twist loved ones or mates around too much. More short distance travelling than usual seems to be taking up your time at the moment. You may not manage to do much in depth or detail, but you certainly won’t be bored.

SAGITTARIUS:   Stay witty, flexible and tolerant and you’ll be highly persuasive. If on the other hand you become too obsessed with what’s going on, you won’t see the wood for the trees and will get everything out of proportion. Stand back and remember there’s an upside as well as a downside. You may be getting edgy at the moment about carelessness or sloppiness in workmates or those you handle money with. Just don’t get too nit picky. Just keep putting them straight.
CAPRICORN:  What you are learning today you are learning at a much deeper level than usual. You’ll not be superficial, or interested in anything that is too frivolous. Just watch that you’re not forcing your viewpoint on others or becoming too compulsive. More restless than usual and with a fairly low boredom threshold, you will keep on the move constantly, visiting as many friends as possible. You will be good at mental activities, where a sharp eye, and the ability to put ideas across clearly. scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS:  It’ll be a rather deep-thinking kind of day today, one where you’ll be talking about everything intensely. You’ll be digging below the surface into the depths so you’ll have a penetrating quality about you. Others may be rather unsettled because of the direct and searching way in which you ask questions. You love delving behind the scenes at the moment or below the surface of life. You don’t want to take anything at face value.
PISCES:  Sometimes you’ll speak in a way that others find slightly difficult to take. They’ll feel that you’re push-push-pushing and may not take very kindly to it. So you need to aim for a lighter approach. You are spending a good deal of time discussing future possibilities now, and you need mates around as sounding boards for your brighter inspirations. Your livelier friends will adore you, because you are up on the latest advances and not harping on about how things used to be.
