Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For December 12, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- In order to give yourself something you've long gone without, you may have to give up something that has been valuable to you for just as long.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may not be willing to make the trade another has offered you, but before the day is out, you can come up with an acceptable alternative.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Listen to what others are saying about you today and you'll learn a great deal about how you affect things even when going it alone.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Just because someone is likely to clean up your mess doesn't mean it's a good idea to make it in the first place. Think of others!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may find yourself engaged in a war of words with someone who is just as much of an "expert" as you are. To the victor go the spoils!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're eager to share your opinion about a certain development -- but it will be more important for you to listen to what others have to say.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Think about how the pieces come together today, and you'll be able to see the big picture while dealing with many of the smaller details.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Listen to what others have to say today, and offer your input only when asked to do so. It's important to follow established protocol.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are wise to stay out of another's business today -- but you must be ready to react appropriately to whatever actions he or she takes.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A cautious approach is advised, at least during the first part of the day in which you are still getting the lay of the land.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Do you want to hit the road today, or stay close to home? The choice is yours, and each option provides you with a welcome opportunity.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- As you go about your business today, you must be aware of what others are doing as they go about theirs. All things are intertwined today.
