December ARIES: March 21 to April 19 • A little kick in

the heinie will do no harm—will actually put you further ahead. There are risks worth taking right out of the gate, and others best put aside to ponder for a time (you know). Stay focused on the goal, but allow for occasional personal escapes. Lucky Days: 25-30 Lucky Numbers: 17-29 TAURUS: April 20 to May 20 • All of the attention’s on your partner/spouse due to what he/she stirred up. Be supportive, but you’re not expected to drop everything to get on board. Capricorn male friend/relative will roll up his sleeves and pitch in. Beautiful, memorable holiday get-together 22nd-23rd. Lucky Days: 23-28 Lucky Numbers: 21-33 GEMINI: May 21 to June 21 • Your increasing interest in other cultures and life’s mysteries leads you to the brink of an extreme where you feel compelled to be more charitable. Exciting encounter during a social event 15th/16th sparks a fire in your soul. Plan to meet again the 28th. Lucky Days: 3-30 Lucky Numbers: 11-28 CANCER: June 22 to July 22 • Busy December— love life! Looking for love in all the wrong places the 8th. Better chances to hook up with someone special (or rekindle the flame) 28th. Could be a serious proposal the 14th…or, for those already hitched, a new adventure you bravely embark upon together! Lucky Days: 1-10 Lucky Numbers: 5-26 LEO: July 23 to Aug. 22 • You’re outnumbered. Uncomfortable when you’re not in control? No way to avoid a needed pow-wow at home now, especially if you want your vote to count! The activity you’re engaged in will eventually serve to help others, even if it seems to make things rough for you now. Lucky Days: 25-30 Lucky Numbers: 13-22 VIRGO: Aug. 23 to Sept. 22 • Tired of every single extra cent getting snatched for surprise expenses? Enjoy relief this month, as you bring in more $$ than usual (just in time for the holidays, too!). Relish in your newfound fit, robust, sexy appeal (clearly the result of healthy habits). Lucky Days: 10-28 Lucky Numbers: 8-44

LIBRA: Sept. 23 to Oct. 23 • Worthwhile investment serves to fund your future, turning dreams into reality. Dedication to continued studies advances your objectives 100fold. Earth-to-you: avoid stumbles and mishaps by staying more attentive in the present moment (give yr cell ph a break) 27th-29th. Lucky Days: 8-30 Lucky Numbers: 7-21 SCORPIO: Oct. 24 to Nov. 21 • Idea: put on the Ritz and brighten up winter using your best recipes for a warm get together at home the 1st. Lately you’ve entertained making home improvements…this is the time to do something dazzling and gorgeous, especially as your wallet just got fatter. Lucky Days: 1-28 Lucky Numbers: 5-40 SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 22 to Dec. 21 • You’ll not win an argument/succeed in a teaching moment the 6th, even if you believe you have the facts—turn face calmly and do your own thing. Personal changes made around the 20th put you in the perfect place to better enjoy the holidays (AND the New Year)! Lucky Days: 3-20 Lucky Numbers: 8-37 CAPRICORN: Dec. 22 to Jan. 19 • Though it seems work is sucking the life out of you, the payoff down the road will be worth all the fuss. Challenges on the home front test you, making you a better person. You cannot control others’ reactions or make them like what you’re doing more. Lucky Days: 10-23 Lucky Number 10-24 AQUARIUS: Jan. 20 to Feb. 19 • Accept a woman’s challenge with class and style— allow this to enlighten and improve your position. Careful not to loosen the budget too much, at least not until after the holidays, when you have more $$ assembled/targeted for extraordinary needs. Lucky Days: 12-20 Lucky Numbers: 13-30a PISCES: Feb. 19 to March 20 • Sidestep controversies building at work and keep a low profile, while exhibiting the same integrity you have all along. The time for change is coming. Your love life more than makes up for weird stuff on the job. You come into extra cash, too the 22nd! Lucky Days: 1-22 Lucky Numbers: 6-22
