Tomorrow’s Horoscope
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2012 There is a good chance that in the year ahead you will make several important alliances that could become extremely beneficial. Two of them are likely to be with older people, but one might be with someone younger and more adventurous than you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- For reasons over which they’ll have no control, the people whom you depend on might fail you. Your objective might be harder to reach on your own, but you’ll handle it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You might have to guard against doing things in half measures, but once you realize the stakes at play, hesitation won’t be a problem. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -If you’re not careful, you might be a trifle extravagant with your resources. This is acceptable, provided you aren’t equally as generous with someone else’s money. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -There is nothing wrong with having some fun and enjoying yourself, as long as you don’t treat serious matters lightly, especially those pertaining to your career. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Be careful about what you tell others, because if you reveal the wrong things to the wrong person, instead of unburdening yourself, you might create more trouble. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Be positive and build up your hopes, but also be realistic, because if you aren’t, all you’ll do is make more misery for yourself. Don’t use your imagination as an instrument of disappointment. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Something you thought to be shoo-in could prove far more difficult to pull off than anticipated. This can be an extremely rewarding day for you if you don’t take anything for granted and put in the work. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings, naturally, but it might be far kinder to be forthright instead of painting a rosy picture that leads to false expectations. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Certain commercial matters could prove to be far more complicated than they appear, so be prepared for anything. If you’re cautions and prudent, you should do just fine. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If you start seeking an easy out, you might find only difficulty. By trying to duck challenges, you might only create more. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Usually, you’re the type of person who likes to think a few steps ahead of the game. Keep it up, as careful forethought will be vital to a successful day. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Your reasoning regarding a joint matter is likely to be a shade sounder than that of your counterpart. Listen to his or her views, because one could be good, but don’t discount your judgment.

Dear Annie: I recently hosted a bridal shower for a dear friend. Of the 30 women we invited, only five bothered to RSVP. Several people told the bride-to-be that they may not be coming. Not surprisingly, the bride assumed (incorrectly) that they had also RSVP’d to me directly, so she didn’t pass that on. You can imagine how frustrating, not to mention wasteful, it was to prepare enough food for 25 people when only a handful arrived. My point is this: When asked to RSVP to an event, DO SO. Don’t ignore it or ask the bride to pass on your regrets. She has enough details on her plate right now. It takes just a minute to respond to an invitation, and it is just plain rude not to. — Too Many Leftovers Dear Leftovers: We
