Happy Birthday for Friday, Dec. 9, 2022:
You are confident. You address life with energy and vigor. You work hard for what you want. Nevertheless, privately, you are sensitive and softer than you appear. This year is the end of a nine-year cycle, which means it’s time to let go of anyone and anything that’s holding you back. Clear the decks!
(March 21-April 19)
Be careful, because this is a tricky day. You feel confident and upbeat. However, this confidence might get you in trouble with a boss or someone in authority. Do not overestimate something. Keep your eyes open and remain realistic. Tonight: Cooperate.
(April 20-May 20)
It’s easy to find yourself at odds with others today, even though initially things begin in a positive, enthusiastic way before they end up like a runaway train. It’s probably best to stick to your convictions. Don’t be talked out of anything. Tonight: Listen.
(May 21-June 20)
Be careful with money and finances today, because you might initially overestimate something or, conversely, underestimate a problem. Either way, this could lead to you finding yourself in hot water. It’s best to tread carefully right from the get-go. Check your facts. Tonight: Count your money.
(June 21-July 22)
Today the Moon is in your sign; however, it is at odds with both Mercury and Jupiter. In one way, this makes you happy and confident! Yet in another way, you will be confrontational with someone, or someone might challenge you. Pull in your reins a little. Tonight: Be diplomatic.
(July 23-Aug. 22)
Even though you might choose to be low-key today and work alone or behind the scenes, you might find yourself embroiled with others in situations that are work-related or related to shared property or shared responsibilities. Get your facts before you do anything. Tonight: Solitude.
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
This is a friendly, popular day for you! Nevertheless, as this day wears on, you might find yourself at odds with someone, perhaps a friend, a member of a group, or even a partner or close friend. A dispute with one of your kids is also possible. Assume nothing! Check facts. Tonight: Be agreeable.
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Initially, you might be excited to talk to bosses, parents or partners about something because you’re enthusiastic and you want to enlighten others. (Moreover, people notice you today.) However, others might disagree! Double-check that your facts are right. Tonight: Show respect.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Be careful with financial discussions today, whether it concerns the wealth of others, shared property or your own earnings and personal wealth. Something might look better than it is. You also might overlook an important detail. Therefore, tread carefully and double-check your facts. Tonight: Learn something.
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You are ever the optimist, which is why you look on the bright side of things. However, this is why you have to be careful today, because something might initially look promising. But upon closer inspection, you find that it is not. Furthermore, others might challenge your assumptions. Do your homework. Tonight: Check your finances.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Do what you can to keep the peace with others today, because you might find yourself gridlocked with people who don’t agree with you, versus people who are cheering you on. Unfortunately, it could be a lose-lose situation. Therefore, don’t get involved. Tonight: Be detached.
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You might be excited about a project today that relates to the arts or creative people working in a group. Possibly it relates to your job. Whatever the case, make sure you know what’s going on, because things might not be as they appear. Take off those rose-colored glasses. Tonight: Work.
(Feb. 19-March 20)
Today people are misjudging things, to their chagrin. Don’t overestimate something, especially if you are giving facts and figures to bosses, parents or VIPs today. (It will be easy to make this mistake.) Instead, double-check your facts first so that you don’t end up with egg on your face. Tonight: Relax.
