For Saturday, Dec. 22:
This year you often will go to extremes. In the process of doing so, you couldn’t care less, but it is how you feel after the fact that will cause you to employ some self-discipline. If you are single, your desirability speaks for itself. If you are attached, the two of you blend together well.
