ARIES (March 21-April 19): Fighting change and trying to go backward never solves problems. Rather than engaging in an argument or jumping through hoops to solve difficulties, it may be best to just wait and see. Rely on the good will of others.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It is fine to shine. You may enjoy receiving extra attention but might be challenged to juggle business and social activities gracefully. This is not a good time to start messing around with your finances.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be discreet. Hold back when tempted to make scathing observations or sarcastic remarks. Avoid making snap decisions that could land you in hot water. You may be overconfident and too quick to take action.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t let a surprise request or two disrupt your day. You possess the resourcefulness to handle unexpected guests or to come up with a contribution to a gift basket. Avoid making major purchases today.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Discretion is the better part of valor. If you wear your heart on your sleeve, an awkward situation could happen. Despite seeing inequities and injustices, it is best to remain quiet until you can do something to cure them.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Keep secrets which were never meant to be shared, but don’t be shocked if someone airs their dirty laundry in public now. Keep your own counsel about any hidden ambitions. Steer clear of family feuds and arguments.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Cupid’s arrows may have lost all their feathers and fall short of the mark. The best intentions might not be quite good enough when you must work with other people. Expect to receive encouragement from a partner.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): If you want to get closer to someone, wait for better stars. Right now, your romantic overtures may simply cause a misunderstanding. Focus on learning more about how to make investments more profitable.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Ground yourself fully down into reality and ask the important questions. You could be deceived or deceive yourself, causing misunderstandings. Partnership issues and disagreements could be at the forefront now.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Remain transparent. The truth about any attempts at manipulation always comes out and reduces credibility. You could be caught up in a communication mix-up or workplace drama and forced to adjust your routines.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Dealing with difficult people takes its toll. Your brain may feel strained after all the extra effort. A friend might need some money, but not everything is quite what it seems. Gather more intel before you proceed.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. Stifle impulses to get involved in family squabbles or to buy something new just to impress someone. Someone may not welcome your well-intentioned comments or ideas right now.
IF DEC. 7 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: If your sense of reality has been challenged, you may be disillusioned or react with indignation and vow to make some changes during the next two to three weeks. You might choose to break away from someone or alter your work schedule. Avoid making key financial or business decisions in January when you could be overconfident and your street smarts are probably at a low point. As February approaches, you may be inspired to throw yourself into a new business plan or passionately embrace a new lifestyle. Anything you begin could benefit from your vision and determination to succeed. Early March may bring some lucky breaks and a sense of peace and contentment. Launch important plans while benevolent stars light your way and take advantage of whatever you are offered. Make crucial commitments and promises while your trustworthiness and popularity are enhanced.
