TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 28). Your cosmic gift is confidence. Your voice gets stronger, your movements sharper; you know yourself better than ever. Your selfassurance will make others certain about you, too. You’ll seal a deal through an educational or familial network. April and September will be your best financial months. Scorpio and Taurus adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 20, 8, 45 and 12.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re becoming more intentional in these last days of the year. You’ll measure the things that matter to you. Time is your greatest resource. A little self-discipline is all that’s needed to work the clock in your favor.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Come from a place of curiosity. You can afford it. Relax and think of a different question you could be asking. If nothing comes to you, escape to new environs and see if that doesn’t inspire a new mindset.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). What was a chore to learn is becoming increasingly exciting to know, now that you understand it better. Keep seeking knowledge. You’ll soon meet people who share your enthusiasm for the subject.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You can’t control other people, so you focus on you. This will be positive as long as you realize that there’s really nothing to fix about yourself, just something to accept.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll have some fun as you take on a challenge with a small team. New people in the group will highlight different characteristics of your loved ones, giving you a new angle to appreciate them from.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Whatever happened before, leave it in the land of before. Future-you is still to be determined. You’re the determiner. You will be what you make of yourself.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Everyone has felt the sting of exclusion and rejection — hard but a kind of rite of passage for humans. If you can soften it for someone you will. Laughing about the past, or holding hands in the present — that’s you now.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Do you ever go on social media and find yourself being quite mean about it? You wouldn’t leave bad comments, but you might think them. There’s something cathartic in the thought process, and as long as you don’t act on it, you’re golden.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). How well should they understand you? This is the question of the day. You have surprises and mysteries inside you. How much do you really want to communicate now?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Is this person difficult to get to know? You’ll have to work harder to crack the code, that’s all. Only you can determine if it’s really worthwhile, although the challenge in and of itself will probably be enough for you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Because you are such a fantastic listener you will understand even those who have difficulty communicating. You will find a way to help them and perhaps make an accidental profit, too.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your affection toward those you love cannot be masked. Others are secretly envious of the attention you lavish on your nearest and dearest, and today they may make a play for your interest.
