Horoscope for Dec. 18
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Don’t purchase an expensive article for your household if you are undecided about whether you really want it. If your need isn’t imminent or critical, sleep on it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Instead of doing things as correctly as they should be done because of the work involved, you may opt for taking a shortcut, and greatly diminish the value of what you were trying to accomplish.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Treating your financial affairs in a cavalier fashion is asking for big trouble down the line. Serious obligations must be acknowledged and handled accordingly.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Knowing how to close a sale is just as important as making it in the first place. Start finalizing the deal the moment you get a nod of approval, or your prospect could wriggle off the hook.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Unless you can discern between wishful and positive thinking, you could engage in activities that might work against you. Realistic thinking is constructive; the other is a pipe dream.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — There is nothing wrong with going after what you want. Just be sure, however, that what you think you desire is truly worth having, or you could expend all that energy for nothing.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — When you’re bored, you sometimes have a tendency to change things merely for change’s sake. Be careful not to do so at this juncture, because it could be disruptive and gum up the works.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — When discussing something of personal importance, be sure to keep an open mind. If you don’t, you could hear only what you want to and miss something that could be very helpful.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Having a tendency to be impulsive could be your worst enemy if you’re not careful, especially if you’re involved in something new. Take the time to follow each step carefully.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Even a nominal amount of discord between you and another could shatter what you’re working on and/or, worse yet, the relationship. At the very least, it will set you back a great deal.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — It isn’t likely to be one of your better days for experimenting with untested methods or procedures. This will be especially true if you have a partner who knows less about things than you do.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Instead of asking for a loan from a friend, make do with the resources you have at hand. Paying back what you borrowed could be more painful than going without.
