Today’s Horoscope: Tuesday, December 30, 2008
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
As much as you love being in the limelight, the last thing you would want is to be in the shoes of Mika Brzezinski, host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe. She was mugged while she was standing outside a Washington, D.C., hotel. The thieves got away with $6. You will meet a lot of interesting people today, but not all of them have your best interests at heart. Try: power napping.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Use your insight to gain valuable information today. Jim Carrey was on Larry King Live, warning about the hazards of antidepressants and the benefits of multivitamins. You would do well to increase your vitamin intake, but you should check with your physician before you alter your medicine regime. Try: participating in a team sport.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
Anne Hathaway recently told Modern Bride that she’d love to say that she has absolutely no experience in humiliating herself with drunken dancing in public, but “unfortunately that’s not the case.” Sounds like a page from your life two days ago, dear Pisces. You have already started falling off the wagon, forgetting about your New Year’s resolution. Today, have a long talk with yourself about how to get back in the saddle again. Try: strength training.
Aries March 21 – April 19
The top New Year’s resolution made in 2008 was to get out of debt and save money. You meant well, but your tendency to purchase the latest gadgets has kept you into debt this past year. More than any other zodiac sign, you love to make major purchases: Trading your car in for a faster model and grabbing the Wii without even thinking of how you’ll pay for it. This year, when you’re planning your resolution, take more time to plan how to make 2009 a debt-free year. Try: learning to moonwalk.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
When Tom Cruise poked fun at himself via Letterman’s infamous Top 10 list, America laughed. In order to keep your peace-loving nature, you tend to strike first, and your best defense mechanism is to laugh at yourself. Your friends and family call it endearing, but you know deep down that it’s called survival. Try: eating a large salad for lunch.
Gemini May 21 – June 21
Your curious nature can bounce from one topic to another without stopping. Your contributions to an office party today will probably fall flat; when they do, bring up the new cologne that Burger King has contributed to the perfume market – Flame, which has hints of flame-broiled meat. With that knowledge, you will be the life of the party. Try: making a hot toddy.
Cancer June 22 – July 22
Get ready to learn something new today. You may believe in karma, but do you believe in didgeridoo taboos? By the end of the day, everything you thought you knew will be turned on its side. You will be mystified about the things that you still have left to learn. Each time you encounter something that you don’t know, write it down. Later on, take a moment to learn more. Try: remembering your division tables.
Leo July 23 – August 22
You tend to live your live straightforwardly and with a flair for drama. In your heart, you may secretly applaud the guy who had the courage to throw a shoe at George Bush while Nouri al-Maliki, the Prime Minister of Iraq, looked on. Conditions may put you in a position in which you have to use your sharp mind and deal with rulebreakers. Try: mixing juice with seltzer water to create your own soda.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
You have the ability to differentiate between what is useful and what isn’t. Not getting invited to the White House Christmas party (think: a certain View host) is definitely something that you would find useful. You may experience a small slight today, but do not consider it to be personal, and don’t get mad – just get even. Mistakes can happen, and your name wasn’t forgotten; it was just missed. Try: guessing who will win an Oscar next year.
Libra September 23 – October 22
According to recent polls, wealthy shoppers are asking stores to brown-bag their expensive purchases. You enjoy giving luxurious, expensive gifts. Today, you should take a moment to consider that not everyone is as well off as you. Tone down the spending, and purchase gifts that matter to the heart rather than ones that show how much you have. Try: mapping out your family.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Simon Cowell is speaking out again, and we all know that when Simon speaks, people either laugh or cower. That’s you in a nutshell – you have enough venom in your mind to stun any opponent. Today, if you don’t have anything positive to say, then don’t say anything. Any damage done today will be hard to clean up later on, so keep your mouth closed. Try: giving a do-it-yourself gift.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
52 percent of women said they would like to change places with a celebrity, according to a recent poll taken by BettyConfidential.com. Perhaps it’s because celebs’ exercise regime is so much more disciplined than yours. Gwyneth, Madonna and others spend hours each day toning their bodies, but they still have plenty of time to use their creative juices. You’ve promised yourself that this year will be different, so put those gym clothes on and just go. Try: taking the day off.
