Today’s birthday (Monday, Dec. 5, 2016) This year friends surrounded you in nearly all areas of your life. Good news usually stems from a friendship. Your people skills continue to grow. You have unusual drive and energy. Your biggest issue will be a sense of illusion, which could prevent you from being realistic. Feedback from trusted associates needs to be listened to. If you are single, you’ll meet someone through your day-today routine. You don’t need to make an extraordinary effort to have this happen; it just will on its own.
