Daily horoscopes: December 16, 2016


(March 20 – April 19):

A boss or manager starts rattling your cage again. Show this person that you’ve risen above it by refusing to respond. S/he will move on.


(April 20 – May 20):

Your first reaction is to ignore a troublemaker, but this person can be very persistent. Make time to deal with him now.


(May 21 – June 20):

Is your hesitation real or is it just cold feet? Might as well err on the side of caution. There’s no rush to act on a delicate matter.


(June 21 – July 21):

The Leo Moon brings out your dramatic side. Though shy about expressing yourself, there are those who long to know what you truly feel.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

The Moon in Leo can make you act holier-than-thou. It’s likely you really are in the right, but it’s a good idea to let others discover that for themselves.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

You want to bring light, not heat, to an incendiary situation. Practice cool logic and others will follow your lead.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

There’s more going on beneath the surface than you expect, so refrain from making promises you can’t keep . . . or may come to regret.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

Again you’re prompted to move on. And like before, you will find a stepping-stone right when you need it. This is a personal journey best taken on faith.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

One of your great talents is putting a positive face on things. Though you still harbor reservations, your confidence inspires others.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

Contrary to what you think praise won’t go to a protégé’s head. It may even get him to redouble efforts. Never underestimate the power of ego stroking.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

Today’s Leo Moon shows a loved one roaring at anyone in sight. Move in closer for a look-see. There may be a thorn that needs removing.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

It’s hard to watch someone you mentored pass you by on the road to success, but be a good sport about it because your time will come.
