Horoscopes for Dec. 4, 2012

By
From page B7 | December 04, 2012 |

Selfishness often gets a bad rap. People can’t function without some amount of self-service, care and awareness. Often, it’s those who refuse to give themselves necessary attention who are the most difficult to be around. The Leo moon suggests that this is the perfect time to tend to No. 1 so you can later tend to others.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The people who could help you may be unaware that you need it or unclear about exactly how they might assist you. Spell out what you want, though, and you’ll have more support than you know what to do with.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Sometimes hard work is a noble and necessary choice. Today it’s a last resort. There really is a better solution. Look for the smart way, not the hard way.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Like a twin depending upon a sibling to set the mood, you may rely on environmental cues too heavily now. Get in the driver’s seat of your emotions. Be proactive instead of reactive.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Though you may not technically be in a position to drop everything and get away on a moment’s notice, you feel free, available and ready to travel – and that’s half the battle. The rest is logistics.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Continents drift; it’s just what they do. Sometimes they pull apart; other times they crash together causing interesting new formations. Likewise, the landscape of your personal life is changing in a gradual, natural way.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don’t make or accept excuses, or you’ll be compromising your excellent standards. Getting a little bit harder on yourself now will be crucial to the success of an endeavor.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You love some things someone has brought to your life, but not everything. Try to accept the whole picture, though. Without the bad, there would be no way to appreciate or even determine what’s so good.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The urge to complain will be strong, but don’t give into it. Doing so creates a weakness and a tendency to repeat the negativity. Channel your energy into coming up with a solution, and you’ll be brilliant.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There are those who both admire and pity the fact that you have to labor so diligently. But if they only knew how much you enjoyed your work, they’d be jealous.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Criticism is valuable, but listening to it may be difficult. You’re only human. But if you could consider feedback in small doses, you would develop faster than the rest and be better for the effort.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Tasks that would usually be rote seem to have a whole different meaning now. They may take longer, too, so give yourself time. You’re heading for a breakthrough.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you have to organize yourself over and over, it could be a sign that the system you’re using isn’t working so well. This is the perfect time to update tools and methods.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your senses will develop in interesting ways. In the weeks to come, you’ll solve many problems with your intuition. Distant family will travel to celebrate you now and in June. Your love life blossoms in January. A promotion comes in February. March is the perfect time for new procedures and technical upgrades. Virgo and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 2, 1, 24 and 13.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Should I pursue a photography business? (I was born on March 28, 1956.) Also, will he ever marry me? (He was born on Jan. 6, 1952.) This is my second time around, but oddly enough, he has never been married. Is there a reason for this that I’m not seeing? I feel that if he would finally commit, we’d have an amazing time together. So far, it’s been a warm attraction, no fireworks, but there’s real potential there. We’ve been seeing each other for two years.”

”Potential” is always a gamble, and as much as you like a challenge, it’s very difficult to build a solid relationship on a gamble. If you knew that things would continue at the same level of excitement or lower, would you still want to be with him? I have a strong feeling that you’ve already seen all of the “amazingness” this connection has to offer. In other words, the best is behind you already.

Since you’re in the mood to take a risk, the photography business prospect looks hot. Born under a Scorpio moon, you have the intensity it takes to create compelling art. Your Mercury in Pisces brings imagination to your work – and also empathy. Are you drawn toward ethereal themes? Consider using digital manipulations and enhancements as a cornerstone of your style.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Hip-hop superstar Jay-Z was born when the sun, Mercury and Venus were all in the fiery realm of Sagittarius. This is a mind-expanding influence ruled by the Mack Daddy of planets, Jupiter. Sagittarians excel at seeing beyond their surroundings and slipping on a global mindset. No matter where they are in the world, they see it as their oyster.
