ARIES (March 21-April 19). Thoughtless people need your tolerance. Think of this as a test. If you fail it, cut yourself a break. It only means that your coping resources are already a bit stretched. Compassion starts with self-compassion.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There’s much to be gained by suspending disbelief long enough to, say, get immersed in the world of a movie or understand the finer points of an argument you do not agree with.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have the strength, guts and initiative to do things your way, which flies in the face of convention and is sure to evoke bewilderment from most onlookers. In time, bewilderment will turn to admiration.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Endings do not have to be failures; they don’t even have to be losses. Things end because it’s time for them to. Then the graceful thing is to acknowledge the crowd with a bow and get off the stage.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Remember when you thought you needed a Frappuccino but really needed an apple? Or you thought you needed a cookie and what you really needed was a support system? Today is different. You know exactly what you need.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Groups have personalities. No single person in the group is responsible for the entire personality of the group, but everyone contributes, and not equally. Pay attention to tone of the group on the whole. Is it for you?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Some feelings are hard to name -- combo platters of emotion with spice levels of varying intensity. Try to put words to it, if only for your own edification. The words will make the feelings more palatable.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Anyone can click with someone who shares interests and general worldviews. It takes a superstar to find ways to connect with people when such things are not readily apparent.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Relationships are worth it no matter how short or long they turn out to be, no matter how lucrative or not the arrangement is, or how frustrating or easy or fun or painful or thrilling. You’re better for it. That’s the takeaway.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Get the right tools for the job, even if it costs more or pushes back your start time. You’ll go in with higher enthusiasm and morale and avoid much frustration throughout the life of the project.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The same location can represent “vacation and freedom” to one person and “work and obligation” to another. When you’re there because you want to be there, it’s an entirely different place.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Here’s an approach to try that you just might find liberating because decision-making gets easier; instead of right or wrong, true or false, good or terrible, think of things as “for me” or “not for me.”
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 30). Realizing that you’re the only one who can decide if life is matching up to your vision, if relationships are fulfilling your needs, or if this is what you want, you gather together your powers and make surprising and unconventional choices this solar return, freeing a vividly alive version of yourself. Scorpio and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 2, 22, 18 and 47.
