TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 8). Your charm will win you opportunities and your work ethic will turn them into lasting bounty for you and yours. Put your team to the test in the early part of 2017, and together you’ll reach a shining goal. Adventures with one special person will be featured in March and June. Your bank account will swell in May. Taurus and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 25, 11, 28 and 37.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s hard to imagine that the ability to move and the freedom to roam could ever get old to you, but it will. It’s the boundaries, rules and obstacles that keep it fresh.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Historically, the attention of an important person has made you feel brilliant, special, vivid and amazing. Now, if you could only re-create that feeling without the external stimuli. Today’s fulfilling pursuit may be just the ticket.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). No one has a golden life; everyone has unique challenges, and that particular loveliness that you wish you had is not the happily-ever-after it appears to be. But if knowing that doesn’t make you want it less, go for it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Figuratively, it’s like you’re pointing to the moon and they’re looking at your finger. Don’t worry, they’ll catch on in time. For now, be patient. Maybe stop pointing. Gaze and admire and they’ll look, too.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When you’re too good for too long, it’s as though your virtuosity is a feather tickling under the chin of a sleeping party goblin inside who wants to break out and do as the wild things do.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s not about doing OK anymore; it’s about doing better than your Facebook friends. To be happy, either stop comparing yourself or get more diversity in your social media feed so there’s a fuller range of comparisons to make.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your loved ones need help balancing the basics of sleep, good nutrition and exercise. If their energy dips, poor decisions and troublemaking will happen. Lead by example and the day will bring many high points.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Money and your ability to earn it — that’s what’s on your mind today. What can bump you into the next level? The answer will be both financially and personally fulfilling.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Though spiritual fulfillment is where it’s at, dealing with your physical environment is how to get there. Cleaning and organizing will be a most effective form of meditation, and the benefits will be immediate.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). An amazing thing will happen once you release the need to be impressive and important: You’ll get a rush of energy you can apply toward making a difference in the world.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you could tap your life with the magic wand of transformation, where would you apply it? Today you could turn a hobby into a business, a friendship into a romance or one positive behavior into a habit.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The current drama will not wash over like a wave. It’s more like a riptide with its own agenda. Your choices: Resist and get carried away, or swim parallel to the shore and eventually you’ll find your way out of it.
