ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your first responsibility is to yourself -- keeping yourself healthy and strong on all the levels, including the spiritual. Handle your responsibility to yourself well and the other responsibilities will fall neatly within reach.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A reckless person may execute the same action as a confident person, but the reckless person is coming from hopelessness and the confident person is coming from optimism. This matters. Learn the intentions of others.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Head games are not limited to social manipulation. They can be solitary efforts, too. You’ll recognize the game you play with yourself. Once you recognize the loopy thinking that isn’t serving you well, you’ll quickly change it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). To know that another person is thinking the best about you, taking what you say in the most positive possible light and interpreting good into all you do - it’s an ultimate form of success.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You welcome the opportunity to try new things. That’s why you won’t mind today’s detour all that much. It involves new vantages and people and so has all the makings of an adventure.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The person who understands a concept extremely well will be able to explain it simply and concisely. If you’re confused by an explanation, seek a more expert teacher.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If it seems as though you still don’t have what you’re looking for, maybe you’re just looking in the wrong direction. “All things on Earth your will shall win you. ... But the Kingdom -- the Kingdom is within you.” -- Rudyard Kipling
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Different friends have different roles in your life. These roles can take a metaphorical minute to figure out. Some shuffling and experimenting is to be expected. Also, these roles change. Stay open.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The difference between a garden and a lawless patch of growth is not that one is more beautiful or useful than the other. It’s that one sticks to a plan.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The villains aren’t all bad, and the heroes aren’t all good. It’s better not to generalize anyway. Each instance needs to be taken out of context, looked at separately and then put back in context and assessed in the whole.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When food doesn’t satisfy you and people around you don’t engage you, it’s a sign. If immediate needs can’t seem to be met in the way they usually would be, there’s something deeper that needs your attention.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Each ecosystem can support only a certain number of living organisms. The various social groups around you are the same. The large and more inclusive groups have the potential to make you very happy now.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 2). Think about what’s going to happen this year. Try to see it vividly. You’re increasingly psychic, yet it’s not your main power. Big results come from regular visualizations. See the outcome you want and your decisions and actions become more concisely geared toward the attainment of the future you see. Cancer and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 40, 1, 18 and 9.
