Horoscope for December 31, 2011

By Bernice Bede Osol

In the year ahead, you are likely to strike a better balance in your personal affairs. In doing so, you will acquire a better balance between work and play, allowing you to devote more time to pleasurable pursuits.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Achieving what you hope to accomplish might be a bit tough, not because of circumstances or outside influences, but due to the way you are handling things.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you waste your time trying to satisfy an old grudge, it's likely to rob you of time spent doing something truly meaningful. Don't squander a perfectly good day.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Unfortunately, your family and friends may not be as eager to share their bounty with you as you are with them. If this is the case, don't fault them -- they don't see things the same way you do.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Abide by some healthy mental standards by refusing to yield to negative thinking, which can easily happen if things don't go exactly as you planned. Stay positive.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Of course you have a lot on your mind, but that doesn't justify failing to properly acknowledge people who have gone out of their way to help you. Keep a good perspective.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- One of your secrets to getting along with everybody and managing people so well is letting each person think that he or she is their own boss. You don't need credit, just results.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- When a serious development arises that requires you to make a weighty decision, let your heart rule your head. It would be the smartest thing to do in this instance.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A matter that could look more serious on the surface than it actually is might cause you to pause a bit. Once you think about it, however, you'll be able to handle it without incident.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's up to you to control events instead of allowing them to dominate you. If you are weak or wishy-washy about what your objectives, your chances for getting what you want are nil.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Guard against inclinations not to listen to what others want or even the good suggestions they make just so you can get everything you want. Life is happiest when shared.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Innately, you are a considerate, practical and logical person, yet you could allow your strong emotions to surface and roll over everybody. Regain control.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Just because certain people put personal gain above their nobler inclinations doesn't mean you have to do so as well. You can make a bigger impact through setting an example.
