Horoscopes for Dec. 18, 2012

By From page B5 | December 18, 2012

Day and night will have completely different tones as the moon goes from Aquarius to Pisces. Social efforts and encounters by daylight will provide fodder for an introspective night of mysterious and insightful dreaming. So keep paper and pen by the bedside, and before you go to sleep, affirm that you’ll remember your dreams.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be a translator of sorts, helping people communicate. Just as a song sung half in one language and half in another catches more ears, your work in two different areas will attract customers in both.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There’s something about a formal setting that brings out the best and worst in people. When the stakes seem high, every move becomes significant. Formalities provide the opportunity for observation and analysis.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Stay attuned to the people around you. Also, beware of those who are more interested in the rest of the room than in the ones they are with. It’s either a sign of distress or a weakness of character.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Would you rather be with someone who talks nonstop or someone who barely speaks at all? You may get a taste of both personalities now, as both colorful and quiet people will be attracted to you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If the effort to be fun makes you feel frantic instead, consider that it might not be your fault. Maybe it’s the other person. You deserve to have a stable presence in your life, someone who makes you feel safe and relaxed.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You long for life to bring a new color that your eyes have never touched. You crave a freshness you can inhale. It could happen if you’re willing to go out of your way to crush monotony.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Though you don’t like the dirty, icky, squishy things that sometimes happen organically, you still have a capacity for becoming enthralled by nature. You’ll experience such beauty tonight.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You know how comforting it is to get the signals from others that you are accepted “as is.” Therefore, you give those signals to others, making them feel relaxed and welcome to be themselves without pretension.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Like the flow of traffic on a freeway, the current pacing of your environment is the result of many collaborative factors. Matching the pace is smart. Pushing it along or holding it back isn’t.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have talent; no one will argue that. But you lack a few of the tools and techniques you need to get your talent to the world. Someone will help you remedy that situation today.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). In the future, people will behave much the same way they are behaving right now. Because you expect this, your antennae are fully extended. You are ready to dissect and interpret each move.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The wound healed long ago, but the scar remains to tell the story. In time, that too will fade. But for now it’s part of you. If you embrace it, everyone else will, too.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. A different way of eating or exercising improves your health and image. A funny coincidence triggers a chain of good luck. Follow your curiosity into a new circle of friends in January. New living arrangements are featured in March. April brings the happy settlement of a negotiation. Libra and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 14, 38 and 20.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m a Pisces man who has always had a thing for feet. I like their shape and find them interesting and beautiful. My girlfriend recently told me that feet are important to Pisces, which surprised me because I thought Pisces was a fish, and fish don’t even have feet. Can you explain this?”

In ancient times, astrology stretched over much of the professional world. Many doctors, politicians, clergy, architects, army captains, farmers, inventors and the like were also astrologers who applied their knowledge of the sun, moon and stars to their work. Medical professionals often would factor their mystical beliefs into the diagnosis and the remedies they created. Every sign of the zodiac has a body part associated with it that is independent of the symbol for that sign. Below is a list. Also, because you’re so into feet, you may want to study the Persian art of podomancy, which is like palmistry for the feet.

ARIES: head. TAURUS: neck, throat. GEMINI: hands, arms, shoulders, lungs. CANCER: breast, stomach. LEO: back, spine, heart. VIRGO: nervous system. LIBRA: lower back, buttocks, kidneys. SCORPIO: genitals. SAGITTARIUS: liver, hips, thighs. CAPRICORN: bones, joints, knees. AQUARIUS: circulation, shins, ankles. PISCES: feet.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Arguably the most famous film director on Earth, the very name of “Spielberg” is practically synonymous with “blockbuster.” Steven Spielberg was born when the sun and Mercury were in expansive Sagittarius, the realm of other worlds. His creation of such worlds in film and in the digital medium of video games has opened the eyes and hearts of audiences everywhere.
