TODAY’S BIRTH­DAY (Dec. 5). Your grat­i­tude to­ward the many who’ve helped you will be the spir­i­tual prac­tice that opens the way for new men­tors and helpers to en­ter your scene. Love will be the main at­trac­tion in Fe­bru­ary, but be sure to do what’s right for you and not just what seems good for your spe­cial re­la­tion­ship. June brings a wind­fall. Pisces and Virgo adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 9, 40, 23, 11 and 45.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The wise shaman doesn’t boss peo­ple around, yet be­cause of this per­son, the group be­haves dif­fer­ently. This is you today — in­flu­en­tial in man­ner, and how.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Para­dox­i­cally, the de­sire for a bet­ter life is an af­fir­ma­tion of a worse one, while the ac­cep­tance of a bad con­di­tion is in and of it­self a move to­ward good.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There’s no clear def­i­ni­tion of what your role is sup­posed to be in the so­cial sce­nario at hand. Choose a fan­tasy model to help you nav­i­gate this weird­ness more com­fort­ably. Who has the charm and grace you’d like to em­body?

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22). It is when you don’t need the re­la­tion­ship/job/deal (yet are still fas­ci­nated by the chal­lenge of it) that you are the like­li­est to get a good of­fer. There is some­thing pow­er­fully at­trac­tive in self-suf­fi­ciency.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ve a lot to of­fer today and many tak­ers — so many in fact that there’s no time to waste on the un­ap­pre­cia­tive. The one who starts to give you a prob­lem is bet­ter let go early on. You’re bet­ter off with­out high-main­te­nance cus­tomers.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The avoid­ance of worry is a form of worry. It’s a strug­gle to avoid strug­gle and a pain to avoid pain. In light of this, avoid avoid­ance al­to­gether. Take life head-on, at face value. For­ward march!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Not ev­ery­thing that hap­pens to you is about you. And even if it is about you, it’s only about the “you” that an­other per­son is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing, which is not the whole or core “you” at all. Today hap­pi­ness is … not tak­ing it per­son­ally.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When you’re faced with an over­whelm­ing project, the nat­u­ral, nor­mal thing to do is to do any­thing but fo­cus on that project. This man­i­fes­ta­tion of fear is what you’re deal­ing with today. Be brave. Dive in. To the vic­tor go the spoils.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When you see them all line up and start march­ing in one di­rec­tion, there’s some­thing in­side you that wants to do an about-face and dance your­self in the op­po­site tra­jec­tory. It’s not that they are wrong and you are right; it’s just that it’s your job to chal­lenge con­form­ity.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There will be hum­ble do­mes­tic chores and er­rands to con­tend with. If left un­done, they would make your life overly and un­nec­es­sar­ily com­pli­cated. That au­to­mat­i­cally rel­e­gates them to the sta­tus of “very im­por­tant.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The big aims come with big sac­ri­fices, but don’t let that de­ter you. Ev­ery­thing in­volves a sac­ri­fice. The trick is to find a sac­ri­fice you’re well­matched to so it doesn’t seem so bad.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you were younger, you tried to avoid em­bar­rass­ment at all costs. Now you re­al­ize that em­bar­rass­ment is a rite of pas­sage on the way to be­com­ing pro­fi­cient at some­thing worth­while.
