Horoscopes for Dec. 14, 2013

If you’re like most people, some of your fondest memories are events that at the time seemed like a bother. Maybe you wanted to be somewhere else, but chances are, the other thing wouldn’t have been as memorable. Keep this in mind as the adventurous Sagittarius sun teases the stubborn Taurus moon out of his comfort zone.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Misery may love company, but it also will slowly devour it if given the chance. Stay away from miserable people, and if you feel low, be sure to hang around someone more upbeat.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can’t always choose your neighbors, but you can get in the ballpark by choosing your neighborhood. Use this as a metaphoric guideline as you move into a new area of interest today.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some people enjoy talking about subjects they know little about. Humor them if you can. It may help to think of them as performance artists working for your casual acceptance, which means more than you know.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Is it still awkward for you to tell people what you do? That’s because you’ve been through so many incarnations that you’re always catching up to who you are now.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s good that your friends aren’t all like you. A diverse team helps you get through life gracefully. Often the best solution to your problem comes from a lazy person who doesn’t want to work so hard for results.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be meeting new people, some of whom you’re not so sure about. Once you laugh – honestly and truly laugh – the relationship is on. You love a person who can make you laugh.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re good at loving but are not always as good at letting yourself be loved. Instead of wasting time trying to figure out why this is, challenge yourself to accept someone’s adoration.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Find fast-talking company, and get into the mix. How will you keep your tongue sharp and your wit quick if you don’t work it out every once in a while by sparring with a worthy partner?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Shakespeare wrote that “the course of true love never did run smooth,” and yet if he could see your experience on this day, he might rethink the notion.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be attuned to the energy that people put out, and you’ll understand much about them by quietly taking in what they project. But at the end of the day, you’ll make a deal in terms quite tangible.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There is some tricky business ahead of you. Ask your friends whether they think you need more input. Their answers will surprise you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Infatuation is blind, but not love. Love sees the whole array of good, bad, beautiful and ugly. It knows the spectrum and out of sheer grace chooses to focus on the good and beautiful.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your insistence on keeping the highest standard will finally pay off – proof that you were right for holding out instead of settling long ago. In 2014, you’ll be inspired by work in an entirely different field from the one you’re in. February features a signed contract or shared vows. May sends you on a quest. Aries and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 22, 8, 40 and 19.

HOLIDAY STRESS RELIEVERS: So many feel spent and blue in December. What can you do to counteract holiday stress?

LEO: When it comes to the holidays, resistance is futile for Leo. If the lion roars about how there’s so much to do and how it always falls in his or her lap, the tirade will be stress-inducing. Skip all of that, and the lion magically will be stress-free. It may seem counterintuitive, but all that comes from pulling off a big event or presentation is actually a source of great relaxation and relief for Leo in the end. It’s like a runner at the triumphant end of a race: The endorphins and sense of accomplishment that rush in at the crossing of the finish line far overshadow any stress that built up in training or over the course of the race. Just as the runner feels destined to race, the Leo feels destined for intense feats of showmanship and hospitality. So for Leo, the key is in dropping all resistance and diving right into the playfulness, over-the-top decor and generally indulgent spirit of the season. Leos can use Will Ferrell’s elfin Christmas cheerleader in the movie “Elf” as a spirit guide.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Vanessa Hudgens will show her acting range and versatility when she plays troubled teen Agnes “Apple” Bailey in the upcoming drama “Gimme Shelter,” which is based on the true story of a teen on a quest and struggling for survival on the streets. This fiery Sagittarius was born under a Pisces moon, which is ideal for actresses who strive to empathize so strongly that they lose themselves in their characters.
