Today’s Horoscope: Wednesday, December 31, 2008
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
Spaniards welcome in the New Year by eating 12 grapes at the stroke of midnight. You may feel like today should be different than the same day last year. Take your own measure of what worked and what didn’t, and mix things up a bit. It will be well worth the effort on your part to express your nature. Try: spending time alone.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Surely there’s something you want to change about yourself in 2009. You know what it is, but you have been reluctant to change. Just for today, try being the person you have always wanted to be. If that means allowing the inner child in your heart to come out, then allow it. When it comes to personal growth, nothing should stand in your way. Try: putting aside old grudges.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
Tomorrow at 8 a.m. (Pacific Time), millions of spectators from around the world will celebrate the New Year by watching the 120th Rose Parade, themed “Hats Off to Entertainment.” You may find yourself watching the entire parade if for no other reason than to escape. Today, however, you need to take your creativity to another level. Perhaps the downtime will do your mind a world of good. Try: playing a game of backgammon.
Aries March 21 – April 19
Per Rolling Stone, the best three albums of the year were TV on the Radio’s Dear Science, Bob Dylan’s Tell Tale Signs and Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III. What’s your personal best for this year? No doubt you spent a lot of time on the job, settling disputes and increasing your personal ego-worth. You probably even thought about changing a few of your less-desirable traits, but time got away. Today, with nothing to do except wait for the ball to drop, you may want to institute a plan. Try: trading places with someone else.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
After her first two rushed marriages failed, Jennifer Lopez rushed into marriage a third time, with Marc Anthony. It appears that the third time is a charm. The couple was spotted feeding each other meatballs at Luau in Beverly Hills. This is what your day will be – sensual love that will soothe your soul and make you forget about what didn’t happen in 2008. Try: learning to live with yourself.
Gemini May 21 – June 21
Who ever heard of someone needing to gain weight? Well, that’s what Taylor Lautner is trying to do, in hopes that he will be asked to return to play the more mature werewolf Jacob Black in the sequel to Twilight. Like Lautner, you are known for doing whatever it takes to get the job done. And if it takes gaining weight to secure a job, then that’s exactly what you will do. The good thing is today you will triumph. Try: making someone laugh.
Cancer June 22 – July 22
You’re due for a short trip. It won’t be as long as Roger Avary’s, whose pretrial hearing for vehicular manslaughter is due to start in February. Nevertheless, beware – on this trip, you will most likely meet someone who will cause your heartbeat to slow. The best advice would be to not do anything that you wouldn’t want done to you. Try: counting to 10 in French.
Leo July 23 – August 22
According to BettyConfidential.com, 67 percent of women say they have a secret that they have never shared. The results of this poll speak directly to you, Leo. What you see is what you get, and obviously the secret won’t be seen, so you’ll hold on to it forever. If your secret isn’t hurting anyone but yourself, then keep it to yourself. But know this: The longer you hold on to it, the more damage it could cause if it ever comes to life. Try: switching sodas for water.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
The holiday gave you time to reflect on the past year and on what you would like to happen in 2009 (think: Brad and Angelina planning to wed). In order to function at your best, you need more security than you have. This economy doesn’t suit you! Investigate a new career or a new method for bringing in the money. Try: showing you care.
Libra September 2 – October 22
New Year’s was first celebrated in ancient Babylon about 4,000 years ago. Yet some things never change. According to a recent poll, 35 percent of Americans break their resolutions before the month of January is over. This year, when you’re setting your goals for 2009, set realistic ones that you can follow through on. Try: talking to a plant today.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
You will be in a positive frame of mind today, so tackle last-minute changes. You may also feel that you want to air your thoughts, get out and about, and stir up some holiday joy. You may feel as if you were the recipient of a poinsettia plant given by Kate Walsh, with all the joy you have given away. Try: being more reserved.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
The song “Auld Lang Syne” is sung at the stroke of midnight in almost every English-speaking country in the world to bring in the New Year. Today, you will find yourself questioning past customs and creating your own. Don’t be afraid to institute changes; they will help you grow into a more well-rounded individual. Try: making up your own beat.
