HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Dec. 25, 2019:
This year, you will be more in touch with your needs. Be careful to not assume that others know what those needs are. If single, being withdrawn will not help you get to know others, although it could be a tendency this year. If attached, the two of you often express an unusual closeness when you are out together. But there can be distance between you and your sweetie. This is part of your process as a couple. SAGITTARIUS understands you better than you do!
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
You feel that a nostalgic or spiritual tone exists around this Christmas. Thoughts wander to those at a distance. You might receive a call that makes you feel as if you need to hear this person’s message. Tonight: Till the wee hours.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
You experience a unique closeness with a loved one. A discussion between the two of you seems inevitable. If possible, postpone this talk until you have a quieter moment. Tonight: Reach out to someone at a distance.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Defer to others and let them enjoy the spotlight. You see unusual happiness from one specific person. You might want to share a chat with him or her at a later point. Tonight: Time with a loved one — just the two of you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Defer to a family member or close friend who you trust. He or she knows what is appropriate. Your way of dealing with a problem might not be as effective as you would like. Listen to what is being shared. Tonight: Express interest in an offer.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
The inner child within emerges no matter what age you are. Be ready to respond to others who might not be as in tune with today’s festivities. A discussion appears inevitable yet positive. Tonight: Slow down.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Stay close to family and friends. You might want to concentrate on the convivial nature of the moment. Your creativity emerges later in the day when you have time to spread your wings. Tonight: Allow more jovial moments and lightness.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Speak your mind. You want others to hear your thoughts. Use the a.m. to make calls and reach out to others. Get ready for a busy afternoon with company. You might feel more centered later. Tonight: Let the action happen at your pad.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
A last-minute gift or call could make this day memorable. Listen to what is being shared more openly. In a discussion later in the day, share some of your good news with a loved one. Tonight: Get into the holiday meal. Catch up on news.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You beam with the happiness associated with today. You also might not be sharing a surprise that will please others — not yet, anyway. Know your limits, understand them, and know that timing will work with you. Tonight: Treat a child to an extra gift.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You might be unusually quiet and withdrawn today. Others check in to see if you are OK. You might sense a happening on the horizon. Stay centered, say only what you know, and enjoy the day. Tonight: Be yourself.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
A friend pops in out of the blue, which delights you yet distracts you from others. You need to be open to what is being shared on all levels. You sense excitement around you, more than others are aware. Tonight: If you can, call it an early night.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
You will be in the limelight for most of the day, whether you are hosting a gathering or because of a special gift. You might not share with others what is on your mind until later, especially if it is personal good news. Tonight: Catch up on a friend’s news.
