But I am having trouble being objective about the piercing. I am opposed on several levels. First, it is a waste of money. Second, there is pain and, more importantly, the risk of infection or worse. I also feel she is too young and still growing. She is very slender, but I’ve advised her that her shape is likely to “fill out” in the next several years.

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
By Bernice Bede Osol
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2012 Chance could play a greater role than usual in your financial affairs during the coming year, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t expend a little effort of your own. It’s unwise to leave everything up to the vicissitudes of fate. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Try to subdue your fondness for risk when it comes to a financial matter with high stakes. Bucking the odds isn’t likely to work out too well, and you know it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Force yourself to avoid repeating a recent mistake, even if you think things will work differently this time around. They won’t. Live and learn. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Just because a certain philosophy fits another doesn’t mean it’s tailored to your requirements. You’d be happier living your own life, with your own patterns. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Regardless of who you are thrown together with, be gracious and thoughtful. Remember, people are always observing you, and bad behavior won’t be readily forgiven. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Heed the notion that what you do might affect others. Take care to avoid doing anything that would inconvenience someone else, especially if the other party isn’t involved in your decisionmaking. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Trouble is lurking if you attempt to stretch the truth regarding some important information. You should tell it like it is, no matter the consequences. If you fudge, you’ll just make things worse. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- There are strong indications that wastefulness on your part could become a major problem. Get hold of yourself immediately, or you’ll quickly find yourself in trouble. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Friends, co-workers and family will all resent it if you’re too selfserving. Be careful not to put your needs, desires or wants above those of everybody else. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It’s important that you see your problems for what they really are and not through rose-colored glasses. It won’t do you any good, and it could cause some unneeded problems. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Engaging in the least expensive activity is likely to turn out to be the most satisfying for you in the long run. No matter how tempting the alternative, stick with the cheaper option. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A personal objective you’re hoping to squeeze into your schedule looks like it isn’t likely to get done, not through any fault of yours. Other factors could be working against you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -The exaggerations of another might elevate your expectations to false heights if you’re not careful, so be aware of whom you place your trust in. The crash could be huge, if you’re taken in.
