Horoscope for Dec. 30, 2011
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Write down any special instructions being given to you instead of trusting them to memory. It’s far less embarrassing than having to go back and ask for them a second time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — The best way to make a concerted effort to be money-conscious is to think about how much you’re spending and for what ends, before making that expensive purchase.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Strive to be self-sufficient, because someone whom you think is a staunch helper might suddenly abandon you when the job gets even the slightest bit tough. Don’t depend on anyone.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Don’t put off an important chore that needs to be taken care of immediately. The longer you let it go, the more the situation will deteriorate, increasing the work you would have to do to set things right.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — If you know that you won’t be welcomed with open arms, don’t go anywhere near a certain person. An encounter would only make you feel worse than you already do.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — It would be best not to discuss with anybody the difficulties you’re having with a relative, because talking about it is likely to only make you feel worse. Put it out of your mind for now.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Your desire will make it difficult for you to discern between what is reasonable optimism and what is just plain wishful thinking. Don’t let anything cloud your judgment.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Take a second look at a joint venture that requires money down. Make sure that you’re not the only one who is asked to put up the financial costs — parity is important.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Be careful not to underestimate persons with whom you are negotiating a critical matter. You might be an extremely good horse trader, but they could be sharper still.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Don’t put up with someone constantly looking over your shoulder, especially if you’re working on a tedious task that requires concentration. It’s too distracting.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — If you find yourself in a social situation where one person in particular seems to be getting all the limelight, don’t let your fury show. Get the attention of others by complimenting them.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Finding a scapegoat to blame for all the problems you are encountering will only make you look weak. No one is perfect, not even you, so make light of your difficulties.
