Horoscopes for Dec. 27, 2012

By
From page A9 | December 27, 2012 |

If you didn’t get all that you wanted for Christmas and you just can’t shake the longing that goes with that unfulfilled desire, you’re not so bad off. Yearning makes the mind obsidian-sharp. The relationship between Saturn and Pluto brings an opportunity to steel your discipline and clarify your goals.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s not just one way to feel good. Your good feelings will take many forms today, including a thrill in your belly, a spark in your mind and the warm buzz of social acceptance.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your confidence may dip for no good reason. Chalk it up to a combination of social circumstances, weather, chemistry and your general mood. A small achievement will be all it takes to buoy you anew.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You like creative people because they get your humor, solve your problems and easily relate to their own kind, namely you. You’ll explore a few of the many ways there are to be creative.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Everyone’s a critic, but not everyone is qualified to be one. Only listen to feedback from those who know you and your work well and have an honest interest in seeing you improve.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). What motivates people to behave the way they do? What motivates you? These questions will be answered in some regard. Where there was vagueness, you will now have clarity.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Caution is not the same thing as pessimism. Your realistic assessment of a situation may inform you that it’s unwise to rush in, especially when you can easily test the waters.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It will take one small move to change a situation. But which one? If only there were an expert you could call. Alas, trial and error is the only way to figure this one out.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A feeling of “let’s get this over with” may lead you into action, but you’ll soon get with the program — and not because you have to, but because you want to.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your impulse to move on comes with mixed feelings. Sure, a rolling stone gathers no moss. But maybe that’s a good thing. Who said that stones need moss to be awesome?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). What’s appropriate in one situation is terribly wrong in another. The nuanced nature of etiquette makes it difficult to determine what is best for today’s scene, so follow the lead of someone who’s been there before.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your capacity to love keeps getting bigger. You’re not exactly learning something new about your family, but you’ll come to understand what you know in a new light.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Often the difference between true and false depends on whom you ask. You’ll have a very different opinion about what occurs today than the others around you.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your focus on home, family and closer ties will bring success on many levels. Desire will be fulfilled in March. Emotional attachments change, and relationships grow through April. June brings a most favorable working arrangement. You could buy or sell a home in August. Aquarius and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 2, 14, 38 and 40.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m a Sagittarius dating a Leo I like a lot, but I don’t want to make her my exclusive girlfriend right now. She assumes she’s the only one in my life, and when other girls call, she goes crazy. Seems like I’m not that good at apologizing or explaining anything to her.”

Your sign has wild oats to sow. You’re better off making that clear to your dates from the beginning. The justifications you make to your Leo provide her with the ammunition to continue arguing. Also, by explaining yourself, you position yourself in a lower status than your Leo, implicitly asking her to approve of your story, motives and claims. You are suggesting that you don’t have the right to do what you do, want what you want or feel what you feel. My suggestion is to stop apologizing, explaining and justifying your actions and come clean – to yourself and to your Leo – with the truth about what you want. You want a nonexclusive relationship. You want to date her and others. You want to be with someone who can understand and respect this. I predict you’ll not only find the truth liberating, but you also just might get what you really want.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Capricorn singer Hayley Williams, who has been touring and recording with a new lineup of her band Paramore, admits that for a 24-year-old she feels like an old soul for having endured the rollercoaster that is a life in rock. Williams was born under a theatrical Leo moon, indicating that it’s only natural for her to turn that drama into quality entertainment.
