Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE HERALD Tuesday, December 24, 1974 Your horoscope lyJeamDixofl WEDNESDAY, DEC. 25 Your birthday today: More than in most times, this season's Christmas gifts serve as tangible expressions of feelings and symbolize felicity in relationships throughout the coming year. Your material progress has a normal growth rate, but remains less important to you than personal and spiritual aspirations. Today's natives seek perfection but go about finding it prudently. ARIES (March 21 April You have definite reasons to keep politics and business out of your Christmas. Concentrate on spiritual and social activity. Share generously with others. TAURUS (April May A touch of glamour brightens home and family festivities. Stay in the present or look forward; the past is behind you. Travel no more than you must. GEMINI (May 21 June There's more of everything than you expected. Avoid excess of any sort. Social and sentimental moods brighten as this lively day goes on. Pace yourself to stay fresh CANCER (June 21 July Make this a holiday of real peace and avoid ex- tremes. Be understanding about the few people who do have to work. Don't expect too much from today's overblown promises. LEO (July 23-Aug. It's so easy to overdo creature comforts and generosity. Save your appetite for a special treat late in the day. Sidestep anyone who wants to talk business. VIRGO (Aug. 23 Sept. Make your holiday rounds with good friends. A conser- vative approach protects you now. Taper off gradually dur- ing this long evening. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. You're better off remaining home on familiar grounds. Everybody hears what he wants to amid riotous festivities, so say what you defmtely mean. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. Whatever has been hidden is out in the open now and misconstrued. Money is elusive; you spend it too quickly for trivial or tem- porary benefits. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 Dec. Leave big decisions .out of today's merrymaking. Events are unlikely to occur as planned and you're disap- pointed if you try to restore your schedule. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. Keep a true Christ- mas spirit by ignoring dis- plays of individual temperament Moderation early in the day loaves you m good shape to enjoy your evening AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb. Friends and holiday visitors in general are un- predictable or beyond your reach Enjoy home life and all its comforts instead. Count your blessings. PISCES (Feb. 19 March LI'L ABNER Despite confusion, you enjoy a lively, pleasant holiday. Take it easy wherever you can and avoid overdoing anything. Emphasize peace, goodwill to all. THURSDAY, DEC. 26 Your birthday today: You respond to your past by strong and renewed efforts to im- prove your mind and skills and bury ail negative trends from previous experience. Relationships become com- plex and very difficult to manage if you take anyone for granted. Today's natives are prone to be friendly brothers to the world. ARIES (March 21-April Start early if you want to trade anything in for something else. Many people have the same idea. Keep travels brief and only for specific purposes.

GEMINI (May 21-June Allow for the needs and wishes of those you love as you organize work on neglected projects. Conserve ready cash for an upcoming, extraordinary opportunity.

Your decision making again confuses associates. Expert advice isn't always what it should be, but consider it as your formulate final plans. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. A moderate approach is es- sential, particularly if you are responsible for others' money. Seek inside facts or learn for yourself just how things work. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec. Think what you're saying to avoid being mis- understood. A touch of for- mality helps in today's ac- tivity. Distant news is sketchy; get more details. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.

Speculation turns into a fiasco today, particularly if you're supposed to do something extra as a personal favor. You turn up a minor surprise in research or promotion. PISCES (Feb. 19-March Everybody at home has enough to say to distract you from work habits. If you received a holiday bonus, don't talk about it; simply add to your savings.

A. H. HUNTER All my best wishes to the thousands who do at least try our little teasers, and to the many who only "read" them! Each letter stands for a different digit. What about this READER?

Even minor incidents this year involve wide repercussions later. Increased personal respon- sibility and ability is im- minent. Relationships are sensitive. Today s natives ac- cumulate unusual possessions but are practical. ARIES (March 21-April If you have any sort of deadline upcoming, play it safe by getting with it now. Otherwise, just catch up on routines. Protection of your health is a good investment. TAURUS (April 20-May Continue to take care in managing your money despite a giddy mood. Round up costs for an accounting at the end of the year. Avoid quibbling that could lead to arguments. GEMINI (May 21-June Even though it's your normal initiative, others feel you're too aggressive. Play things moderately and pay attention to details. CANCER (June 21-July Trivial matters annoy you. Give yourself an extra break or two to concentrate on long- term prospects and sketch in general plans. Concentrate on good music or a solitary pastime. LEO (July 23-Aug. You still have to say no to wild proposals. Social life is full; don't get led into unwise ex- penditures. Line up figures and budgets; answer cor- respondence. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.
