TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 10). One of your many talents this solar return is for bringing people together and bathing in their resulting concentration of joy. Here comes a change in routine that has happy effects on your health and relationships. Also in 2019: an adorable animal encounter, the opening of a venture and an international passport. Scorpio and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 7, 8, 33 and 20.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are creative and will have ideas about new things to try. You’re also, unlike many in your group, bold enough to pitch them. You’ll start the ball rolling. Others will come forward after you do.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Don’t fuss or hesitate over today’s opportunities. They will be like fresh toast. Get it while it’s hot. Otherwise, it will harden as it cools, making each bite a crumbly mess.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be lucky today, although don’t expect to think so until weeks later when you look back on the events of Dec. 10 and realize their role in landing you in a position of good fortune.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The day’s work will be a little like putting a stylish outfit together. It starts with wearing everything you think will work. Then you’ll change out of different elements. And finally, you’ll strip away everything superfluous.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The same force of attraction that shapes the swirling universe at large is at the heart of all you create in your personal realm. Careful, though, as attraction can also cause greed and jealousy. Monitor your attractions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The situation today is something like a marching band in which more than half the players are on key and in time. The ones who are off sort of make it a messy show, but it still, more or less, sounds like music.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don’t want the same thing as the others, and for this reason, you’ll find life a lot easier to manage. No lines, no inflated costs — you just go straight to the source and plunk down the money.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Make it brief. Then you’ll be listened to. They may not understand it, because the spirit of brevity leaves much unexplained, but it’s better to have attention and questions than to have no audience.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Imagine a world in which you spend your days very differently than you’re spending them now. This thought exercise holds a drop of enlightenment if you go deep enough into it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Maybe it takes a degree of education to bandy about high-flown statements, but everyone knows that education is not intelligence. Today’s best reason will come plain-clothed.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Instead of thinking of your failed projects as mistakes, think of them as school projects in the classroom of life. Generosity abounds from the standpoint of learning. Surely, you’ve earned many an A.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re feeling sort of quiet, observant and reflective today. It’s comfortable for you, as well as being a good look for you. One caution: People will project their hopes and wishes into the space you’re holding.
