Horoscopes: Saturday, December 16, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may not remember what you said or did, but your body does, and certain cues will take you right back there.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Maybe they don't mean to take away your freedom. This could be happening on an unconscious level. But if you don't call it out, this pattern will continue.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It is suggested time and again by the gurus of self-help that a life of purpose and meaning leads to happiness. Today's events suggest "meaning" doesn't have to equal "seriousness."

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The habit you're finding it so difficult to break is serving an important purpose, as it carries the promise of some measure of order and certainty.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It appears to outsiders that some on the inside operate inside their privilege without merits even close to those being kept out. You will relate to both sides today.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). People who do not need your permission will nonetheless ask for it out of courtesy. This is how you know you are respected and have good people around you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As the sign of balance, it's hard to relate to this, but you'll come across those who don't believe two powerful people can exist in one relationship. You'll help to change minds, though.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You don't like a lot of loose ends: It's sloppy, and it keeps people from moving forward. So you'll go back and finish, even if you weren't the one who started it. The result will be, either literally or figuratively, musical.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The matter that stressed you out yesterday may still be there. Time to try different reactions. You just might find that all the stress is now optional.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Basics of human connection that once seemed innate now have to be learned, due to digital interference. Good manners give you an advantage.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Huddling in groups, hovering in the background... these are the places you don't belong on this day of social opportunity. You have much to give.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll feel you have more knowledge of a person than your time together should add up to. This is your sixth sense, with some information worth heeding.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 16). You've been in love with things other than people before - endeavors that make your heart sing, places that light up your imagination - and that will happen for you again this solar return. Loved ones need your teaching in January. Spring will bring opportunity, perhaps through professional advancement. Libra and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 12, 2, 18 and 44.
