Horoscopes for Dec. 4, 2013

From page B5 | December 04, 2013 | Leave Comment

Gaining through loss is the theme during these final hours before Mercury enters Sagittarius. Think of those unwanted items and unnecessary obligations you could let go of. At the end of the day, you won’t even notice they are gone. But if you really want to feel better, you’ll have to let go of something bigger. A loss that is not felt is not a loss.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You love specifically. Take note of the precise qualities that thrill you. If you can later tell someone in detail what you love about him or her, it will be among the greatest gifts you could give.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Telling the same story over and over is a method of brain training that you can use to your advantage. Tell yourself the story that makes you feel empowered, and tell it often.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You long for them to stop business as usual and concentrate on making you happy for a change. They won’t get the idea to do this, though, until you take control and make yourself happy.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re feeling patient and will have a high tolerance for those difficult people no one else wants to deal with. You do realize that you may be someone’s only friend.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When presented with something new, usually your first instinct is to approach. But every novelty is different. Some cause the opposite reaction. Pay attention when you feel the urge to withdraw instead, and obey the instinct.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Embrace the way you are: your moods, talents, tolerances and intolerances. If things don’t work today, it’s not your fault. Take it as a sign that you need a better environmental match.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Things don’t come together automatically or magically, and when they look like they do, it’s because someone put a lot of work into creating that illusion. Knowing this, you’ll give praise accordingly.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your respect for other people’s time and energy is commendable. Reading social signals is one of your many skills. As you pick up the subtleties of what someone is saying, you’ll help others around you do the same.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). To look into another person’s eyes and try very hard to understand and feel for that person is no small act. Your brand of attention really is rare and beautiful.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Memory serves each person differently. That’s why it’s important to get things in writing, take pictures and document what’s happening in every possible way.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The trend of self-sacrifice continues with today’s proceedings. Nearly all of your efforts are for others, and you have mixed feelings about this. It’s good to be needed, but who is there for you when you need something?

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re ready to put a piece of your personal property up for sale. There’s no need to waste time wondering what it’s worth. It’s worth what someone will pay for it. Your best bet is an auction environment with a minimum bid.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll upgrade your lifestyle by first changing the way you think about a problem. If you insist on only one way of proceeding, you will meet an impasse. Flexibility of mind makes many beautiful things possible. You’ll open your heart to someone new in January. Compete for a prize in March. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 2, 21, 24 and 38.

PUPPY PROFILE: If you know when your pet was born, check out his or her sun sign and the personality that goes with it.

AQUARIUS: The friendliest of puppies are the Aquarius pups. This dog will make people smile within seconds of meeting. Her gentle curiosity has a way of opening doors. His network of friends includes humans, dogs, cats and more. Singles who live with an Aquarius dog will find that the puppy is the best icebreaker around. Also, the Aquarius dog can serve as a test for potential suitors. Anyone who cannot get along with the Aquarius dog is suspect.

Born into the sign of philanthropy, Aquarius dogs make excellent service dogs, especially for the blind and ailing. They put people in a receptive mood and bring them together. This dog is somewhat indiscriminate and doesn’t see differences in people, which puts those who feel like outsiders at ease.

Because of the Aquarius dog’s high intelligence, extra challenges will be needed to keep him occupied. You should never underestimate an Aquarius dog’s ability to destroy things, as this dog takes destruction to the level of art. Before you leave an Aquarius dog alone, look around and assess the worst that could go wrong and take measures to prevent that loss.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: As one of the most successful hip-hop artists and entrepreneurs on Earth, Jay-Z embodies the expansive and abundant qualities of his sign. This rapper and producer was born when the sun, Mercury and Venus were all in the passionate sign of Sagittarius. This is a worldly, sophisticated influence, always stretching into the unknown to blaze a new trail.
