Horoscopes for Dec. 25, 2012

From page B5 | December 25, 2012 |

”Peace on Earth, good will toward men” may be a Christmas ideal, but it’s an attainable one. The harmony you create inside yourself will count toward the effort and spread to loved ones and out into the world. Mars enters Aquarius, driving philanthropic efforts and encouraging us to take personal responsibility for one another’s well-being.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). With your guiding planet on the move into charitable Aquarius, you’ll be swept up in the humanitarian spirit, sensing what you can do to help and heal your corner of the world.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re not exactly selfless; you happen to love the feeling of giving. Fate smiles on you because you desire what is good for you and for everyone else, as well.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ve been excited about the prospect of surprising your dear ones with unpredictable expressions of your love, and now you’ll pull it off. The moon in your sign gives you a creative advantage.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll get caught up in the flurry of activity, but you’ll never stray far from the heart of it all. You’ll will yourself to slow down and savor the meaning of the moment.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Leading with a playful spirit, you’ll make the effort to meet the needs of those around you. You’ll seize the opportunity to be kind, forgiving, charitable and compassionate.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be effective in creating your own snow globe of a world. It will be as though you and your loved ones exist inside the protective bubble of your collective care.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The sun seems to shine just for you today, as your efforts pay off brilliantly, especially the ones that required an artistic touch. Your highly attuned visual sense contributed to the specialness of this day.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). All of the lights, decorations and anticipation seem to build to a moment, but that’s not entirely how it is. This won’t end soon. The feeling of unity will carry you into the new year and continue on.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re the one voted most likely to turn the traditions you’ve known on their ear. Last-minute touches will be most effective. You’re terrific when the pressure is on.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll get exactly what you need, even if it’s not exactly what you want. As the great musician Clarence Clemons said, “I wanted an electric train for Christmas, but I got the saxophone instead.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). As Mars enters your sign, good fortune may seem to befall you randomly, but it more likely happens because you so fully appreciate the fragrant brilliance of life.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll take a high level of responsibility for the way things happen, and because of this, all goes well. You’ll be an instigator of laughter and a bestower of blessings.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Intrigue surrounds you – an accidental benefit of your recent choices. Relationships heat up over the next seven weeks. You’ll charm your way into an exclusive arrangement and experience the best of what’s available. You’ll take February’s training to the bank. April brings a profitable sale. July brings a move. Pisces and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 4, 38, 31 and 14.

YOUR COSMIC CHRISTMAS GIFT: What will the stars give you this Christmas that you couldn’t possibly buy in a department store? ARIES: The undivided attention of someone you admire (and might have fallen in love with). TAURUS: The dedication to your craft necessary to take it to the next level. GEMINI: A friendship credit that you can cash in whenever you need it most or just think it would be fun. CANCER: A tendency to see and act on the opportunity inside of each problem. LEO: Unstructured time to yourself in which you’re free to do whatever you want sans guilt. VIRGO: The social savvy that will make people from all walks of life instantly connect with you. LIBRA: The kind of play that will boost your immune system and make you feel like you’re on top of the world. SCORPIO: The imagination necessary to turn an unsatisfactory arrangement into a sheer pleasure. SAGITTARIUS: The opportunity to be part of a team – to share, teach, negotiate and solve problems with others. CAPRICORN: The resolution of a conflict and the ability to be your own advocate, preventing any similar dynamics in your future. AQUARIUS: The tenderness you so deserve. PISCES: The answer to a prayer.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Whether Sir Isaac Newton was hit on the head by a falling apple is debatable, but few would argue that this Capricorn was the greatest scientist of the 17th century and possibly of all time. His work in the area of gravity, motion, optics, astronomy, mathematics, religion, alchemy and more changed the world forever. Newton was born when the moon and Venus were in the sign of the future.
