Horoscope for Dec. 12, 2011
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Take nothing for granted and probe deeply when assessing any business dealings. Things could be far more complicated than they appear on the surface.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Don’t allow yourself to be unduly influenced by the advice and opinions of some flamboyant friends, especially if it causes you to ignore your own instinctual judgment.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Fatigue after a busy weekend could cause you to let your attention span and work habits slip somewhat. Remember, carelessness increases the chances of mishap.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Don’t put yourself in a position where you have to gamble on the abilities and/or skills of another. If they can’t live up to what’s necessary, you’ll go down with them.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — It behooves you to get jobs you dislike out of the way first, while you have the energy to handle your disdain for doing them. They’ll be 10 times harder to do when you’re bushed.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — What you say and what you mean are likely to be two totally different things, especially if you’re playing games with yourself. Be honest with others and with yourself.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — It isn’t likely to be a particular expenditure that throws your budget out of kilter; it’s apt to be all the little, thoughtless purchases that cause a ruckus. Try to be more careful.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Unless you’re just openly playing around with friends, sincerity is always essential when dealing with others. Shrewd ploys will be unmasked and could tarnish your reputation.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Forgo all small talk about things you know should be kept quiet, even when you think no one important is listening. There is always somebody who will squeal and make you look bad.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — It’s foolish to hang out with anyone who historically expects more from you than they’re prepared to give back in return. Someone may take you for everything you’ve got.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Feeling both ambitious and restless at the same time could be cause for concern, because that combination tends to make you spread your forces too thin. You could end up with nothing.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Get your facts straight and don’t jump to conclusions based on juicy but faulty information. Assess developments in a logical, realistic manner, without adding any kind of fanfare.
