TO­DAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 29). You’ll be busy in the first part of this so­lar re­turn — no let­ting up in the sec­ond quar­ter! Your suc­cess for­mula in­cludes par­ing down. A skele­ton crew will get it done. Your tremen­dous self-con­trol and per­sis­tence will be re­warded by a goal reached in Septem­ber. Re­la­tion­ships thrive; take pic­tures, and write things down. Pisces and Aries adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 5, 20, 33, 16 and 19.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). In a way, you’re sell­ing some­thing — an idea, product or your vi­sion of the fu­ture. Your ideal “cus­tomer” will al­ready be a lit­tle in­ter­ested in what you’re pre­sent­ing be­fore you even get there.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The fore­fa­thers of the struc­tures of so­ci­ety are of­ten taken for granted by those too young or ig­no­rant to un­der­stand the per­sonal sac­ri­fices made by those who have come be­fore. Con­trast­ingly, you’re aware. Point it out.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Recipe for the day: Reach your hand out and say hello. It’s the start of some­thing beau­ti­ful. Next, men­tion what you want. Keep mov­ing un­til you find the one who can help you. CAN­CER (June 22-July 22). Don’t as­sume that all are as moral as you. Guard your place in a deal. Get your name on record and ev­ery­thing down on pa­per. You can be a nice per­son and still stand up for your­self.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have a lot to give, but will they re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate it if they get it all at once? What about if you built a sense of scarcity around what you’re of­fer­ing? Use hu­man na­ture to your ad­van­tage.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your en­er­getic in­vest­ments will pay off nicely. As for your fi­nan­cial ones, con­sider putting your en­ergy there first. Money usu­ally rep­re­sents past en­ergy ex­pen­di­tures, which can be a lit­tle too re­moved to fully feel.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll in­flu­ence oth­ers, but more im­por­tantly, you’ll com­ply with self-di­rec­tions. To fol­low your own in­struc­tions is no small deal; in fact it’s the magic ticket and the key to get­ting what you want.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Like a com­puter pro­gram­mer, it’s on you to fix a bug in your life. Don’t pro­cras­ti­nate! Pro­cras­ti­na­tion leads to guilt, which leads to more pro­cras­ti­na­tion. It’s ex­haust­ing. Now is the mo­ment. Fix it. Go. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re bet­ter to­day than you were yes­ter­day. If you can con­tinue to say this ev­ery day, the im­prove­ment you are wish­ing for will come to­gether early next year.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Fol­low your op­por­tu­ni­ties, not your pas­sion. Yes, the two will con­verge at some point — not yet. Your op­por­tu­ni­ties will take you some­where; your pas­sion will leave you alone in a room.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you don’t ex­actly love the plan your friends are com­ing up with, make your own. You want to add to the good times, but you won’t be able to un­less your heart is in it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are used to see­ing a cer­tain per­son as very pow­er­ful. You may be sur­prised by how vul­ner­a­ble this per­son re­ally is. Lead with your nat­u­ral em­pa­thy and you’ll get to the truth of the mat­ter.
