For Wednesday, Dec. 28
Those with birthdays today: You have an unusual perspective this year. As a result, you will often back off and think. Your ability to reflect and get down to the basics proves to be one of the more important elements of your year. You will prevail because you have an excellent support system and great friends. Unexpected communications and events toss you into a tizzy. Don't take anything personally. If you are single, you might often take comments to heart. Don't, as often words are not intended the way you take them. If you are attached, you need more time together as a couple. Let the embers of passion ignite once more. SAGITTARIUS makes a great doc for you.

Aries (March 21-April 19)
**** Remember, you can control only yourself, no one else. You might need to remind yourself of that fact today. You might not like to admit it. Detach. Tonight: Maintain your distance but continue to listen.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
*** You might not realize how you are coming off. Your tone of voice might reveal more of what you really feel than your words do. Unexpected developments could punctuate your day. Tonight: With the most special person in your life.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
***** Others seek you out. What you choose to do might not be as bold or exciting as usual. Might you have worn yourself out? Let others run the show, and quit being the personality kid for a day. Tonight: Keep plans calm.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
*** Slow down and take a break before the new year is upon you. Clear out some work or errands. Curb spending for now, as you might have an unusual expenditure or a late paycheck. Tonight: Choose something relaxing.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
**** Try to be less serious. Someone might be playing with your head. Be creative, flourish and don't worry so much. If you are single, a new person could knock on your door. Tonight: Do something that makes you laugh and smile.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
**** Remain goal-directed. Enlist a couple of friends for advice, support or help. Someone close to you might be remote and touchy. You pull the wild card financially. Tonight: Gather with friends.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
*** You are unpredictable because you are tired. Others seem to make demands left and right. Be direct about what you can do. If you feel overwhelmed, say so. Tonight: A must appearance.
