Horoscope for Dec. 21
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You might think you’re being clever when you attempt to camouflage a selfish act from others, but there will be someone who has your number who will out you the moment you try.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — It’s OK to be both realistic and optimistic over the outcome of something important. If you don’t base your instincts only on wishful thinking, everything should come out fine.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Anything you borrow must be treated with the respect you would give to one of your prized possessions. If anything unfortunate should happen to it, it’ll be your responsibility to replace it.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Be cognizant at all times of the details, not just the big picture, if you hope to assess an important matter correctly. Don’t let unimportant side issues distort your logical judgment.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Usually you know what to keep secret and what can be told. This day, however, you might have a difficult time keeping the cat ensconced in the bag if the story is a bit too juicy to keep to yourself.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Don’t permit yourself to get drawn into situations that some high-rolling friends could easily handle, but not you. Keep in mind your financial limitations, and abide by them.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Talking about your goals might make for some interesting conversations and make you look like a high achiever, but unless you actually do what you say, it’ll be nothing but chatter.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Asking others to do things for you that you can easily do for yourself will only make you look like a user. Don’t impose yourself on anybody unless you really need some help.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Nothing could be more foolish than to take a gamble on something another wants to do that is completely out of your control. If you want to take a chance, make sure you’re calling the shots.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t solicit advice from just anybody, make sure to hit up someone you believe can help. Counsel from the wrong person could complicate your affairs and put you in a bigger bind.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Keep your mind on your work at all times, even if you are performing a task that is familiar and routine. Carelessness could generate all kinds of unexpected problems.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Make sure that the person who is usually looking the other way or has left the table when the tab arrives pays his/her fair share when out with friends. Don’t let him/her freeload this time.
