ARIES (March 21-April 19). Happiness gives you so much, including improved health, vitality and self-control. So it really is powerful to know and gravitate toward happiness and all of its fortifications.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). While you like a good mystery, you also note that there’s a difference between a mystery and a vat of confusion. Mysteries have elegance and the potential to stretch out and be known. Vats of confusion are more like garbage.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There are those who are happy to take whatever personal power and resources you hand over. Don’t! Remember that you are equally entitled to living a good life as anyone you may be employed by or obligated to serve.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be in a position to create a system of doing things. It starts with you figuring things out for yourself, and soon you’ll realize that there are others who need to know, too. That’s when things get clearer.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). As you’ve already done a certain kind of work, you can appreciate what it takes for another person to do the same job. It changes how you interact and increases the amount of respect flowing through your scene.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Humor is a shortcut to connection. To make a person honestly laugh, or even just smile a little, is to skip 10 steps toward rapport. But it’s a risk, because eliciting a false laugh or causing an offense is 10 steps away from rapport.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It’s a strange day when you actually sustain a high level of productivity by doing very little. This has to do with knowing when to be quiet and when to let people fill in the blanks and do the work they want to do.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The conflict is a part of life and life could not be without it. But the level of engagement will be up to you. If you steer away from dramatic situations, you’ll still have enough conflict to keep things interesting.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ve been touched by the efforts of people you don’t know, but you don’t have to have a personal interaction to derive meaning and to get real value from someone’s work.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Redundancies are fine when you’re learning something or when you must double-check things for safety reasons. But unnecessary redundancies are boring and cumbersome. You’ll get rid of something like this today.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will learn so much about people by observing what they default to, do by accident or talk about when there’s not much else going on. You’re “people,” too, of course.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The robin’s song may sound sweet to us and to other robins, but it’s not even close to the sort of honk that a goose prefers. Whatever your “song” today, there’s someone out there who will appreciate it over the others.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 1). Each solar return you become wiser, more loving and more powerful. Some years this happens in a natural, easy flow. This year, it’s more of a rocket ride where you get out in an entirely different world from the one you started in. Also featured: a key aesthetic choice, a memorable celebration and a career twist. Cancer and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 13, 25, 1 and 11.
