Horoscopes for Dec. 5, 2013

As Mercury in Sagittarius opens our eyes to all of the ways we might expand our lives, it’s easy to become overwhelmed. Big projects are just a bunch of small tasks stacked on top of one another. Break it down. In order to understand the scope of a project, see how long it takes to accomplish the smallest chunk of the job.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may be unaware of the deep impact you have on another person’s life, but you can be sure that someone thrills to your call, your attention and even just seeing you around.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When problems percolate, sometimes the most intelligent thing to do is to stay out of it. But then you have to abide by the solutions of the less intelligent people who took charge.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You work hard to make yourself attractive according to your high standards, and sometimes this backfires. Some people view beautiful people as a threat. You can counteract their fear with friendliness and humor.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you have too much to do, this puts you in an overwhelmed state, and you’ll accomplish very little. It is once again time to pare down your responsibilities. Say no and delegate with abandon. Sell something off.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll appreciate the beautiful complexity of a natural phenomenon. Considering how hard it is to keep a simple houseplant alive, you have great admiration for nature, especially when it’s thriving.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your loved ones have opinions very different from your own. You’d rather talk about the opinions you share, but today your differences must be addressed before you can settle into those commonalities once more.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Avoid the situations that come with giving others too much power over you. Everyone is learning. Don’t assume that someone who has more experience than you in a certain area is going to know more than you in other areas.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). As you act in creative ways, you build the muscle of imagination. This muscle can’t be seen in pictures, but it definitely will increase your ability to attract the person you’re interested in.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). What you want is possible to obtain, but one or two good decisions will not be enough to get you there. It will take a continuous effort over the long term. Are you up for that?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You can’t expect people to know what you know. Even the basics, such as how to be civil, have to be taught. You’ll save a lot of time by working with those who are already up to speed.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You buried the problem last week, and now it resurfaces. It’s as though the problem senses that you’re stronger and have more resources. You’re ready.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll focus on improving your financial state. Keep trying different tactics and searching for your niche. If making money were easy, everyone would be rolling in it. You’ll succeed if you keep at it.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll weave swiftly and carefully through a political realm, and in 2014, good fortune comes to you through a vast organization. Avoid a contest of wills, and you’ll wind up in charge of an important mission in January. March will forward your personal interests, and your professional interests will have to wait until May. Aquarius and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 23, 14, 38 and 5.

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

PISCES: Pisces is the old soul of the zodiac, and with a soul’s age comes wisdom. The puppy born into the last zodiac sign has the ability to relate to and empathize with every sign that has come before and will be an emotional and spiritual touchstone for his humans. That is not to say that this puppy is always well behaved. In fact, the Pisces dog is highly impressionable and apt to follow along with what the other animals and people are doing. If there are troublemakers around, the Pisces dog will be a troublemaker, too. If the prevalent energy is obedience, the Pisces dog will fall right in line.

Unusually sensitive, Pisces pups sense changes in the moods and health of their humans. They react strongly to weather and find storms unsettling. They hear visitors from a great distance and will go after pests before others detect them. Because Pisces dogs are so sensitive, they are best reprimanded with a strong, calm presence. Anyone who feels out of control while dealing with a misbehaving Pisces dog will be met with a dog who is equally out of control.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: One of the entertainment industry’s most influential imaginations was born on this day in 1901. Walt Disney changed the world with his ideas about what a humble mouse might do to make people smile. He applied his expansive Sagittarius mind to family entertainment, technological innovation and environmental conservation. Disney’s natal Mars, Jupiter and Saturn were in determined Capricorn.
