Horoscope for Dec. 8, 2011
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Tried and true procedures may not be the best ones to follow any longer. If you hear about something better, don’t hesitate to discard old ideas in favor of new thinking.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — You’re likely to be more effective later in the day, after you’ve had time to study an important matter, than you will be in the early hours. Don’t rush any important decision.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — If your early efforts fail to bring you the success you’re seeking, don’t be a quitter — try, try again. This is one of those days when perseverance pays off.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — There is a good chance that the advice you get from your mate might be vastly superior to any counsel you receive from outsiders, even from those who have impressive credentials.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Agreeing to do something for another merely to get that person to do something for you in return could be an exercise in futility. He or she is likely to reciprocate, but not necessarily how and when you want.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — The only consideration you should have is to make sure you’re moving in a positive direction. Even small gains can be good, as long as they get you closer to your goal.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Be sure you have all the facts and figures at hand before defending an unfamiliar position. If you don’t readily have them at your disposal, wait until you do to take action.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — There is nothing wrong with curiosity, because it does have its place when employed constructively. However, don’t misuse it by prying onto somebody else’s private affairs.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Instead of paying for needed services or advice, first try to figure things out for yourself. If you probe a little, you may find that you already have the answers at your disposal.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Adhere to proven procedures and methods in all work-related matters. Experimenting with unproven or untried procedures could be a career hazard.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Don’t hesitate to warn a friend about someone who does not have his or her best interests at heart, even if the adversary is likely to hear about it. Doing what is right is what’s most important.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — If you’ve made a commitment you now regret, try to rectify it immediately instead of disappointing the other party at the time when you’re expected to honor your pledge.
