For Wednesday, Dec. 21
Those with birthdays today: This year, you need to focus on work and your ability to grow and break through barriers. Often, you impose restrictions on your mind; learn to get past these negative patterns. Confirm meetings and get-togethers, as they are likely to change at the last minute. You might discover that you're not on the same page as others. Many of you will travel; others will open up to new views through education. Learn to trigger less. If you are single, travel for a foreigner could have a profound effect on your love life. If you are attached, your relationship will flourish if you schedule a special trip together. VIRGO helps you see others' points of view.

Aries (March 21-April 19)
*** Though others might be silly and in a festive mood, for whatever reason, you are about business and getting the job done. Confusion surrounds your plans and messages. Tonight: Put in some extra hours.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
***** When others cannot think of solutions or ideas, you seem like a fountain of endless creativity. Your warmth is further enhanced by the season and a personal bond. Tonight: Share some of your chair.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
*** Others seem to make life more confusing than necessary. Keep trying to clarify. You will be most successful talking individually with each person. Your energy remains high. Tonight: Head home.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
**** Speak your mind, but use that special magnetic smile and style. Your words mean a lot to others. Be easygoing with someone who might think he is right. Tonight: Run Santa errands on the way home.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
*** Be sensitive to others. Expenses could get out of control. Perhaps you should think about more innovative gifts. Let your imagination flow. Tonight: Start pulling everything together. Do less. Order in dinner.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
***** All eyes turn to you, especially as an associate or pal could be acting up. You'll want to give this person space. Meanwhile, get busy touching base with others. Tonight: Eggnog with friends (unless you have a better idea).
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
** Much might be going on in your head, but you might not want to verbalize your opinions. Your intuitive sense kicks in with spending. Still, be aware of the long-term impact of what you are doing. Tonight: Head home.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
***** Sometimes you can get overwhelmed by the season. Not so this year! You are a busy bee, flying from one project to another. Consider friends who might be alone during the holidays. Tonight: Choose a seasonal activity.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
**** Others frequently fashion their behavior on what you do and say. When making choices, realize how much you are in the limelight. Be more aware of your finances. Tonight: Out late.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
**** The Sun moves into your sign today, signaling a very joyous period. Focus on what you want, but be willing to break past patterns to achieve that goal. Tonight: Put on some holiday music.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
***** If you treat each person as if he or she is the most important at that moment, you will experience greater success and happiness. Sometimes you detach way too much. Tonight: Enjoy yourself wherever you are.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
***** You might surprise someone at a distance with a call or offer. Your spontaneity might draw a strong reaction. Would it not be better to explain where you are coming from? Tonight: You cannot be everywhere. Choose your company.
