Happy birthday (Dec. 8): Among the highlights will be abundant fun times with people who share your sense of humor. You'll set challenging goals that land you in unexpected situations. Once you decide who you want to be and how you want to feel, life adjusts to support you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your brain isn't the only smart thing in your body. Your stomach is wise because it is unencumbered by thought. It knows what agrees with you and what doesn't. Direct questions to your stomach and accept its simple answer.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Avoid obsessing over one thing that is not going as you wish. One branch is not the whole tree. Without one branch, the tree and the roots keep doing their thing. Tend to what is essential and all is well.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): You'll offer something to the world. Your offer may come in the form of physical goods, an interaction or simply an energy. Before you make your bid, double-check to make sure you have the resources to deliver.

CANCER (June 22-July 22): Sleep is the simple fix that goes overlooked. You're well aware that proper rest can resolve all kinds of problems, but it's easy to forget this when you're tired. One good night just might fix all.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You have remarkable powers of empathy. Your sensitivity allows you to give just the right thing. You may even have the healing touch. Don't compromise your boundaries, though. Make sure your needs are met too.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): From the earthworm to the high-flying bird, every creature has a purpose. Even when you don't know what it is, you're still serving the purpose. The earthworm and bird don't worry about that, and neither should you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Venting can be an addicting habit. It may discharge negativity to air feelings but it's also possible to create negativity through engaging in too much complaint. Avoid this by being sure to listen more than you talk.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You chose your arena even though you knew it was going to be a hard place to play. There's a lot you must do just to stay in the game; it's worth it to you, though. If this were easy, everyone would do it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Like a tree bending in the wind, you will go to great lengths and compromise to make things work. You will be repaid for your emotional flexibility with a relationship that continues to grow.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It's hard to tell if your strategy is working, but don't let that stop you. Sure, there will be complications; assume the best and inch your way forward. Better to hang on through discomfort than to quit when you're almost there!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Emotional warmth is a gift you never seem to run out of. You cast everyone in a flattering light. They feel good in it and sense that they look good too.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Things seem mysterious or even impossible until you figure out how they work. Even the knottiest situation comes unraveled when you know which string to cut. All is illuminated when you know which switch to flip.


The sun and Mars in opposition warn against broadcasting half-baked opinions. Going too wide too early with your thoughts will cause more trouble than it’s worth. Most arguments aren’t worth taking on, as even winning them barely relates to the end goal. Refine your thought processes privately or with a trusted few.
