Horoscope for Dec. 16
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Optimism is wonderful when realistically applied, but it can be just the opposite when based on false premises. Don’t set goals or targets for yourself that are totally unreasonable.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — When in discussions with friends, you should try to do more listening than talking. There is always plenty of information that you can get from them.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — All you’ll be doing is asking for trouble if you get financially involved in a venture or enterprise that’s promoted by another and about which you know little. Operate within your wheelhouse.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Subdue your impulses to enter a venture of a competitive nature, especially if it’s something outside your bailiwick. Your judgment might be more hopeful than realistic.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — An indifferent attitude toward your work will be reflected in your performance, and, regrettably, could cause you to be careless, apathetic and totally unconcerned about the outcome.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Putting unnecessary stress on yourself to get things done a certain way is asking for misery if you can’t pull it off. Relax and do what you can.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Putting pressure on yourself to be the first one out of the starting blocks may result in not pacing yourself properly and faltering before you can get near the finish line.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — If the old ways are working just fine where your work is concerned, don’t experiment with some new procedures that are totally unnecessary. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — You’ll remain in fine shape where your finances are concerned, as long as you don’t lend any money to someone who isn’t likely to pay it back in a timely fashion. Don’t be a sap.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Leave your spouse adequate space to supply his/her input instead of insisting that everything must go your way. All you’ll accomplish is to put him/her in a bad mood.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — If you don’t take control of yourself, your mood could wildly swing between buoyant optimism and crippling doubt. No one will know how to please you today.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Don’t be a patsy and let someone get more deeply indebted to you than this person already is. If you keep falling for his/her sob story, you’ll deserve to be taken for a ride.
Some students are choosing to chart their own course after graduation, bucking the conventional path of college or trade school, but with no less ambition than their degree-seeking peers. Moffat County High School senior Tyler Gonzales is one such student, who has chosen to dive into a full-time job at Chaos Ink after graduating and feed his passion for design and entrepreneurialism.
