Horoscopes for Dec. 13, 2012

By
From page A9 | December 13, 2012 |

There are many who would follow the beat of a different drummer if only there were such a drummer. Often the main drummer is playing so loudly that no one else can compete. The New Moon in Sagittarius offers a rest from the main action and the perfect opportunity for a swinging new rhythm master to take the stage.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It seems like business as usual until you give it a closer look. There’s a subtle development regarding your finances. Take hold of the situation now and you’ll avoid problems later.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The leaders have all been followers at some point. You may not be sure which role to take. Are you really ready to lead the crew? The fact that you wonder indicates you’re the perfect candidate.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The plan you’re pursuing has a flaw that, though glaring, is difficult to see from the inside. That’s why you need an outsider’s opinion. Ask the one who’s practical and honest.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Humor has its delicacies. No matter what you say, you’re going to offend someone. But if you think it’s funny, chances are someone else will too. Tonight you’re willing to take the risk.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Things will move when you’re certain. Squeeze out doubt. Be so confident about your decision that you leave no room for other possibilities to come into being.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The world is a giant merry-go-round spinning at over a thousand miles per hour – give or take a few hundred depending on where you are – and you’ve yet to fly off into space. There are some things you can trust, so trust them.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Ignorance may be bliss, but only temporarily because what you don’t know could eventually cause harm. So ask for accurate information. Open your eyes and be willing to see the full picture.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Do you care how much people like you? It depends on the person. Your standing with a certain someone may matter to you a little more today, but try not to act differently – you’ll only give that person an unfair advantage.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have high expectations of your social life. The party hasn’t been up to your standards lately. But the tides are turning. So get out and look around. You just might find some life on this planet.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). One of your teammates is causing problems. This may make the group stronger, so don’t be too quick to change your lineup. Everyone group needs a challenger to the status quo.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The best fixes will be half pragmatic, half fanciful. The hopeful, magical touch you give to relationships will be a healing agent, especially when combined with practical solutions.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The problem you’ve been carrying around is heavy, but you’ve been carrying it for so long you rarely realize the extra weight. Today is different. You’ll start to realize that when this is gone, you’ll be mighty relieved.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Curiosity ignites your spirit of adventure over the next six weeks. Thanks to ever-widening social horizons, you’ll explore new worlds close to home and outside your normal experience. Romance and music fill the spring. April brings a lift to your status and financial picture. A deal comes through in June. Aries and Taurus adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 24, 43, 30 and 22.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m a 42-year-old Pisces woman who is aging prematurely. I’ve started caring for my parents who are 85 and 87. My husband, a Capricorn, claims that I now move as slowly as them and have adopted elderly habits. How do I stay young and still give my family the care they need?”

Your husband is very perceptive, as Pisces tend to take on the characteristics of those they are around as a way of understanding and empathizing with others. This is a similar phenomenon to “mirroring,” which happens naturally between people who feel an affinity for one another. Either consciously or unconsciously people will reflect and imitate the body language of those they like.

Your husband may also be feeling somewhat jealous of the attention you give your parents. He may be giving you a harder time than is necessary because he fears losing status in his own home. Capricorn men are leaders and like to feel that their position as the king of their castle is secure and respected by all.

You can maintain your youth by spending time with your friends, colleagues and peers. Interacting with those your age on a regularly scheduled basis will reset you to your real age.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: On top of the world, Sagittarian superstar Taylor Swift (12/13/1989) has earned awards, broken records and become one of the most sought after talents of her generation. But according to her, she still worries about things like being considered “cool” by the cool kids. Swift was born when the moon and Jupiter were in Cancer – deeply feeling, soulful and ever-changing.
