Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For December 20, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It's essential today that you present yourself and your ideas in the best possible light. Be ready to go in case you're given the go-ahead.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll want to get as much as possible done quickly, as you have one or two personal issues that will surely take up time late in the day.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A friend has been trying for some time to come up with a solution to a stubborn problem, but today you get to the heart of the matter right away.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your inner power will be on display at certain moments today, and you mustn't hold back. It's important for others to see you take command.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You've had a tendency lately to take things far too personally, but today you must be objective if you're going to remain competitive.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're likely to receive a "hint" of sorts at just the right time. What happens after that takes you and your allies very much by surprise.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're struggling to find the "right" thing to do in your situation. Let go of preconceptions and the answer will come before you know it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- While others may be trying to throw their weight around today, you can get better results by being kind, gentle, subtle and persuasive.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A creative endeavor is at risk of going a little haywire today if you're not willing to draw the line and establish a code of behavior.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can impress someone with your overall understanding of a difficult situation -- but that doesn't guarantee your coming up with a solution.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your interpretation of an unexpected situation sends ripples among those who know you best. Communication is the key to getting this sorted out.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- While some gravitate toward you today, others are likely to move away from you for reasons that you don't understand at first.
