Horoscope for Dec. 23
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — You’ll deliberately make it a point to draw out others in order to make them feel important, and that’s why friends will be thinking you’re a pretty nifty person.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — For those of you who have merely been killing time, come out of your playpen, turn off the TV and do something constructive. You’ll feel a lot better about yourself when not goofing off.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Instead of spending all your time in your office or home, plan to get outside and see the world around you. Even just running errands will refresh you quite a bit.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Your perceptions regarding the desires and requirements of the public will be right on target, so if your work requires you to deal directly with the hoi polloi, go ahead and make your points.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — When involved with others about doing something new, let them do the brawny stuff while you handle the brainy parts. It could be a prefect match, if everyone does his/her part.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — You could be a bit luckier than usual in your material interests, in a couple of ways: you might receive an early Christmas gift, or a bonus could be in the making.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — There isn’t likely to be anything more important to you than having the mobility and freedom to do what you want. Avoid involvements that would limit your independence, if you can.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — In most cases, it is foolhardy to depend on a hunch or an intuitive feeling when it involves something important. However, at this point there’s a good chance that your impression could be right on the money.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Taking some kind of recreational break could do you a world of good, even if it is just a short timeout from work. It’ll serve to refresh you and give you what you need to finish the job at hand.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — There is a good chance a new responsibility will be dumped in your lap. Do your best, because others will be observing how you handle things in hopes you can fit into a larger position.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You’re likely to have more energy than usual, which is good and bad. If you eschew activity, it’ll put you in a bad mood. Keeping busy, however, will serve to inspire you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Friends and associates are likely to be looking for ways to repay all that you’ve done for them in the past. Your prior good works will be returned to you twice over.
