The Columbus Dispatch
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Anger is not like a drug; it is a drug. It alters a person’s chemistry more effectively than a lot of other substances. Keep this in mind while dealing with people who seem to lean on this emotion.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Even the self-made have teachers, perhaps in the form of books or role models. Why limit your influences or accept the first instructor to come along? You’ll love what happens when you proactively choose your mentors.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). As character-building as rejection is, there’s no reason to get more of it than necessary. Before you put your project or yourself out there, find out what it typically takes to get to yes.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Success will seem to take forever and include one near miss after another until you begin to wonder if you’re ever going to get there. Push through the dip. When you hit, you’ll hit a jackpot.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Small things can have life-changing intensity. One pinch of hot chili pepper changes the dish. One spark lights the fire. One smoldering look can set off a chain affecting generations.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Love gives more than it takes. You’ll feel enlarged by everything you deliver in love, and others will be bigger for everything they give in the same spirit.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In today’s case, impulsivity will be a minus. Before you make the move you are contemplating, talk it out with someone knowledgeable and reasonable.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Old pictures, past social media posts and historic texts will be part of the texture of this day. Some artifacts make you smile. As for the cringeworthy ones, let them represent how far you’ve come. Celebrate growth.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll be asked to handle other people’s problems. You’d like to. It would be easier. But then you’ll have to do it every time, and when you’re not around they’ll suffer.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll win. Stay humble and quiet about the victory for now. Competition is everywhere. And even when people don’t want to compete with you, success changes the social dynamic.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The muses will be tardy. Don’t wait on them. Inspiration will start to trickle in after you get working. The principle applies to your social life too. Friends will hop on a train that’s already in motion.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Adaptability is one of your many gifts. You come across the odd and unexpected, beyond your expertise. And yet still ... you get used to it, make the most of it, turn it all to your advantage.
YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY (Dec. 10). Your cosmic gift is one of great presence and magnetism. It allows you to speak with silence and impart messages that suggest more than words allow. You’ll use this to lead people, facilitate lucky connections and make it easy for people to create significant, beautiful and helpful things as a group. Gemini and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 10, 4, 44 and 19.
