TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAYS

The Morning Journal (Lorain, OH) - - YOUR DAILY BREAK -

Aries (March 21-April 19): You’re not out to change the world to­day; you just want to find a bet­ter way to live within it. Mostly this has to do with learn­ing what’s there and ask­ing oth­ers how they’re do­ing it.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): You don’t al­ways want at­ten­tion or peo­ple around you. But when you do feel like com­pany, the quick­est way to be­com­ing more at­trac­tive is to get happy. So how are you go­ing to get happy?

Gemini (May 21-June 21): Just be­cause one per­son is serv­ing an­other doesn’t mean that the per­son is any less val­ued than the other. In fact, it takes a big heart and a solidly devel­oped sense of self to serve oth­ers well.

Can­cer (June 22-July 22): Chem­istry, mu­tual ad­mi­ra­tion and shared hu­mor are among the many things that con­trib­ute to the longevity and health of a re­la­tion­ship. How­ever, noth­ing con­trib­utes more to­day than forgiveness.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): You don’t al­ways get the credit for what you do. Maybe that’s a good thing to­day. If you have too much praise heaped on you, you’ll at­tract jeal­ousy and high ex­pec­ta­tions for next time — two pres­sures you don’t need.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ve been taught that it’s im­po­lite to ex­press bore­dom, and over time this has caused you to be obliv­i­ous to the symp­toms. Wake up to bore­dom now. Bore­dom is a sign that you’re not in the right place. It’s a sign to move on.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): The play­ful­ness that’s so cute in an­i­mals (in­clud­ing the hu­man an­i­mal) is also very nec­es­sary; it gets the crea­ture ready for life. Play­ing is of­ten a sim­u­la­tion, a chance to hone some skills to pre­pare for the chal­lenges to come.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Whether some­thing is of­fen­sive or not de­pends on many fac­tors in­clud­ing (but not lim­ited to) con­text, zeit­geist, so­cial mores and, most im­por­tantly, who is the mes­sen­ger. Know what story is yours and is not yours to tell.

Sagit­tar­ius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Go­ing with the flow just isn’t ap­pro­pri­ate in ev­ery sit­u­a­tion. As your own ad­vo­cate, you’ll need to speak up to­day about what you need and what you don’t un­der­stand. Get the knowl­edge and re­sources you’re due.

Capri­corn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): There’s a sig­nif­i­cant event in the fu­ture that seems to be reach­ing back through time to poke you. This poke is a sig­nal to heed. The event may seem very far off in­deed, but if you wait un­til it’s not, it will be too late.

Aquar­ius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Flutist James Gal­way is 79. Singer Jerry But­ler is 79. Pop mu­si­cian Bobby El­liott is 77. Ac­tress Mary Woronov is 75. Ac­tor John Ru­bin­stein is 72. Reg­gae singer Toots Hib­bert is 70. Ac­tress Kim Basinger is 65. Rock mu­si­cian War­ren Cuc­cu­rullo is 62. Rock mu­si­cian Phil Collen is 61. Coun­try singer Marty Ray­bon is 59. World Bank Pres­i­dent Jim Yong Kim is 59. Po­lit­i­cal com­men­ta­tor Ann Coul­ter is 57. Rock mu­si­cian Marty Fried­man is 56. Ac­tor Wen­dell Pierce is 55. Ac­tress Teri Hatcher is 54. Ac­tor David Hare­wood is 53. Rap­per Bush­wick Bill is 52. Singer Sinead O’Con­nor is 52. Ac­tor Matthew Laborteaux is 52. Rock mu­si­cian Ryan Newell is 46.

You don’t have to over­think your part in the tim­ing of things. To be prompt will be enough. Promp­ti­tude will keep you within the bound­ary of good man­ners, fine rep­u­ta­tion, du­ti­ful ser­vice and boun­ti­ful for­tunes.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Among your many rights is the right to be left alone. This you de­sire not out of anti-so­cial in­stincts but out of a sin­cere need for the peace and soli­tude that will en­gen­der a re­con­nec­tion with the things that make you who you are.

To­day’s birth­day (Dec. 8):

Your past gen­eros­ity has set the stage for some ex­cel­lent karma to swing back around, and the so­lar re­turn sets off the bounty. Other high­lights in­clude find­ing in­for­ma­tion you’ve been seek­ing for years, a sale that makes you proud and the feel­ing that you’re fi­nally com­ing into your own in a cer­tain ex­clu­sive so­cial world. Leo and Aquar­ius adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 38, 20, 44, 1 and 7.
