For Wednesday, Dec. 27
Those with birthdays today: Your home and personal life become even more important than in years past. You might want to make your mark on society, but be realistic about what makes you feel good. Your instincts always come through for you in a bind. Mercury in your sign adds a certain wit or resourcefulness. If you are single, be discriminating as to the person you let in close, as desirable as he or she might seem. This person might sense a vulnerability in you. If you are attached, sharing more of your fears will open a new path. Trust your instincts and share them more often. Your sweetie will respond in kind, perhaps not immediately. ARIES can be an anchor or an albatross.
