Horoscope for December 9, 2011

By Bernice Bede Osol

In the year ahead, regardless of whether or not the objectives you establish for yourself make sense to anybody else, stand by your guns and give them a try. You might find some ingenious ways to realize your ambitions.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Effective allies can sometimes be difficult to find, so when dealing with matters of extreme importance, it might be best to rely solely on your own assets.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Many persons might be able to be led, but not driven or pushed into submission. So if you need to get certain people working on your team, keep this in mind.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Taking a big risk might be okay when you know the odds are tilted in your favor, but when things are not that certain, it would be far better to avoid taking chances.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If you take the position that you are absolutely right and your mate is totally wrong, all you'll do is prolong the argument. Regardless of what you think, it is best to give an inch or two.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If you're given some unfamiliar tools to work with, find somebody who is experienced in using them to teach you, and follow their instructions to the letter.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A lack of discipline could quickly sow the seeds for spender's remorse. You had better get a handle on your funds right off the bat or risk being broke by day's end.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- In situations where it's okay to be a bit assertive, you should take care not to go overboard and become pushy. To protect yourself, use charm not force to get what you want.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- When you dig in it can be difficult for you to forgive and forget, and when this happens it usually works against you. Let go and get on with living your life.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You won't have any problems being generous with others of your own volition. However, if someone requests it of you, you're not likely to be too magnanimous in your treatment.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Manipulative moves could jeopardize your relationships with others, so try to enjoy friends for what they are instead of what they have to offer. That would only work against you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- It is never a good day to discuss politics or religion with somebody who feels as strongly about his or her views and opinions as you do. All it would do is send sparks flying.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- When it comes to involving yourself with someone in a close endeavor, make sure it is a person who is as honest and aboveboard as you. If you suspect the other party of being devious, back off.
