For Monday, Dec. 6, 2004. Those with birthdays today: This year, when you see what you want, you go for it. You'll have an unusually successful year with this special energy, especially when you are focused. Friends and networking lead you down a whole new path, if you are willing to take the first step. You'll expand your horizons if you understand that nearly anything is possible. Commit to a group or a crusade that inspires strong feelings and a sense of devotion. If you are single, be open to meeting different types of people. You might meet Mr. or Ms. Right if you let go of your set images. If you are attached, your relationship will bloom if you socialize more together and perhaps devote yourself to a key cause.
The stars show the kind of day you'll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
Aries (March 21-April 19)
- **** Defer to those around you. In fact, associates and friends demand to be heard. True wisdom is not fighting the direction of the wave but flowing with the motion of the ocean. Tonight: Go along with a pal's plans.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
- *** Mentally, you're all work. Still, you might need to stretch in order to take care of all that you want to complete right now, if not yesterday. Going on a diet this close to the holidays could be pointless. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
- **** You can be playful and at the same time subconsciously serve as a muse for someone else. Brainstorm; express your creativity. Input or a far-out idea might work with a long-term project. Tonight: Play as if there is no tomorrow.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
- *** Moving from the personal realm might be difficult, as you tend to internalize your feelings. In fact, if you can work from home, do so. Tonight: Love being home.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
- **** Express your depth, imagination and feelings. What you say inspires a similar openness with others. Brainstorm with associates. Tonight: Meet a friend for some holiday cheer.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- ** You might not be able to get as much shopping or errands done as you would like. Consider doing your holiday shopping on the Internet. Tonight: Balance your checkbook.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
- **** The Moon highlights you. Focus on what you want, knowing you have what it takes to make it happen. Your personality draws an admirer or someone you care about. Tonight: Live it up!
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
- * Know when to say little -- today being a perfect example. You gain by listening or closing your door and getting as much done as possible. Keep your opinions to yourself for now. Tonight: Mysterious works.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
- **** Your intuition points you in the right direction. If you don't have any feelings, follow your friends' suggestions. Meetings help you visualize a project and where you are heading. Tonight: Where your friends are.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
- *** Your take-charge attitude proves to be effective and appropriate. Others listen and follow through on your suggestions or directive. Tonight: Work late.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
- **** Although what you hear feels right, it wouldn't hurt to check out the facts. Information comes forward that might not contradict what you hear but will enhance your knowledge. Tonight: Listen to and/or buy a favorite piece of music.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
- *** A partner makes all the decisions without listening to your feedback. You could take this personally, but realistically, it might free you from responsibility. Tonight: Share with a loved one.
