TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 8): Your past generosity has set the stage for some excellent karma to swing back around. Your lucky numbers are: 38, 20, 44, 1 and 7.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): You just want to find a better way to live within the world. Mostly this has to do with asking others how they’re doing it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You don’t always want attention. 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 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.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): 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.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): The playfulness that’s so cute in animals is also very necessary; it gets the creature ready for life. Playing is often 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 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 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): 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 out of a sincere need for the peace that will engender a reconnection with the things that make you who you are.
