December 25, 2013


HAPPY BIRTHDAY: This year you often will be dealing with an assertive authority figure. Your career and community involvement become high priorities. You will focus on your image and your long-term goals. If you are single, many people will be drawn to you. If you choose a person who wants to change you, the results might be less than desirable. Look for someone who accepts you for you. If you are attached, you often create a lot of excitement on the homefront. Don’t be surprised if you move, remodel or make a change within your domestic life. LIBRA does not have the same drive as you to get to the bottom of a problem.

Note: Bigar’s Stars is based on the degree of your sun at birth. The sign name is simply a label astrologers put on a set of degrees for convenience. For best results, readers should refer to the dates following each sign.

A baby born today has a Sun in Capricorn and a Moon in Libra.        

BORN TODAY: Singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett (1946), actor Humphrey Bogart (1899), screenwriter Rod Sterling (1924)

The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19): **** On some level, you might feel as if you must go overboard with others; however, you might throw several people off, as they won’t know how to deal with the new you. Be sure to use your high energy well. Tonight: Let someone dote on you for a change.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): *** Try to maintain a steady pace, as you know how much you need to do. An unexpected guest or development could present a quandary. You might not be sure which way to go. Observe, and you will figure it out. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): **** Be more forthright with a child or loved one in the morning. You could be much more in tune with this person’s energy than he or she is. The excitement of the moment could be somewhat overwhelming. Stay levelheaded. Tonight: Love the moment.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): **** You will be where you are happiest — at home, enjoying the moment. You might wonder about a situation involving a close friend or loved one. Be careful, as you tend to expend a lot of energy and could be accident-prone. Tonight: Happy at home.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): **** Your words mean a lot to loved ones. In fact, they might even be more significant than your gifts. An unexpected call from someone at a distance could surprise you. Consider what you want to do, and follow through quickly. Tonight: Let the fun begin.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): *** Somehow, you will find a way to spend money at the last minute. Stop. Just enjoy the people around you at the moment. Even if you forgot a gift, you can plan to take this person shopping and let him or her decide on something. Tonight: Indulge in the good vibes.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): **** You might feel as if you can take on anyone, but all you need to do is enjoy your day and the people around you. Your wish will be someone else’s command. An unexpected event could throw you and others into a tizzy. Tonight: Choose your company well.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): ** You know when to back off and when to move forward. A friend or loved one could surprise you with an insight about someone you have been missing. Try to take a nap at some point in the afternoon; otherwise, you could become cranky, like a little kid. Tonight: Vanish while you can.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): **** You understand what is going on in your immediate circle. A male friend or family member could become inordinately pushy or difficult. How you hold this person back could have implications in the moment. Tonight: Invite a friend over.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): **** The excitement of the moment could dissolve the best of plans. Assume your natural role in bringing people and events together. You have the ability to make the worst project fun. Do just that! Tonight: Kick up your feet.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): **** Your mind could be everywhere but where it needs to be. You might be missing someone or wishing you had made other plans. Return calls from family members and friends. Catch up on others’ news. Tonight: Be grateful for those around you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): **** You might want to spend the day with a loved one and do nothing else. If that is a possibility, do it. You often go overboard when trying to do the right thing, but sometimes it is more important to take care of yourself. Tonight: Enjoy a call from a special person.
