TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 26). Big projects will move forward. A higher degree of teamwork will be necessary to make things happen in 2017. As if on cue, new members sign up to help in February. You’re the glue of your social network, and you can expect to also be the frequent host. Financially, June and October will be highlights. Libra and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 21, 3, 36 and 42.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Instead of wanting something from another person, want something for that person. This subtle shift of intention in your wanting will make a powerful difference in your ability to persuade.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Ask any ballerina; balance requires core strength. Core strength is also needed in your dance through life. You’ll get it in characterbuilding moments. To flail and fall is human. To pop back up, divine. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There are some really tricky aspects to the day, but you’ve been known to surmount much bigger challenges. When you put your mind to it, you usually amaze yourself, and today will be no different. CANCER (June 22-July 22).
You’re too busy looking at what you have to notice what you may have missed. Good. Stay that way. It’s the way to grow your love and appreciation into a very interesting future.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Why should you get hooked into other people’s bad moods that have nothing to do with you? Thought of the day: Ignoring provocation is not defeat; it’s actually productivity.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Whether you’re being paid for the work or not, you’ll benefit from setting clearly defined objectives. Decide how you will know you’ve arrived at the goal, and then choose the actions that will get you there.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). What was lost and longed for has been found! It’s one of the most satisfying emotions of all — sweet relief. Celebrate first, and then put into place the safety measures to prevent future loss.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). As it happens, it only takes a small action to advance the plot of a certain delightful storyline of your life. The very specific (and probably charming) gesture you make will change or reinforce the way someone feels about you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The felicitous circumstance of the day is that what you want wants you right back. You still have to take action to get it, though. The first action will be to communicate delicately but clearly.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Go forward, even if you have to go alone. You’ll take only a few steps solo, really. It won’t be long before you’re joined by one who sees the significance of your journey. This person may even hold your hand.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You take the responsibility of growing your own brain very seriously. These days, the job may require that you let go of some dearly held beliefs you’ve had for a long time. They may have been comforting, but they are limiting, too.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s a good day to ignore the bad habits of those close to you. Your refusal to pay attention will free you up for a truly wondrous block of time in which you can focus on what fortifies you.
