Horoscopes for Dec. 7, 2013

By
From page B11 | December 07, 2013 |

While we’re still recovering our equilibrium after Mercury’s recent change, Mars makes a move to rock the boat again, this time in the name of love, beauty and harmony. This gentle wave is likely to be more of a lullaby than anything that might capsize our personal lives, so don’t fight it. Trust life’s process.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Collective problem solving is a feature of the day. You don’t need to know the answer to chime in. Each idea builds on the next. The realizations will belong as much to the group as they do to any single person.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Archimedes said, “Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.” You will be searching for a point of leverage today. Once you figure out how to position yourself, you’ll be persuasive.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Remember the times when you put on a brave face even though you were feeling sad and afraid? Someone who is having a hard time is doing the same for you now. Be sensitive to what is really going on.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re likely to meet salty characters, and you’ll enjoy them. A captain who has navigated rough waters has more to teach than one who has known only smooth sailing.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don’t expect life to be fair, but you do expect your loved ones to hang in there with you through the inequities. Today you’ll model the principle for a friend of yours who is going through a hard time.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). People pay attention to what interests them. Instead of fighting it, you’ll use this knowledge to your advantage, wrapping your message in the packages your loved ones find the most appealing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you don’t know what you are getting out of an exchange, you won’t want to go through with it. For the other person’s sake, figure out what’s in it for you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your conscience is stricter than the laws or social rules of our time. When you step out of bounds, your conscience makes noise much more alarming than the chirping of a cricket.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Put your projects on the schedule, or they won’t get accomplished. If you don’t fill in the blanks, someone else will. It’s better to be alone than to be with people you don’t like.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be reminded of your intellectual standards. A beautiful face isn’t attractive to you unless there’s also a good brain behind it. You could find what you’re looking for in a Virgo or an Aquarius.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A certain mysterious and attractive someone has been on your mind. Though difficult to get to know, this person will be wonderful to have in your life, so be persistent. It will pay off.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Pop artist Andy Warhol once remarked that two people kissing always look like fish. And if those two people are you and another Pisces, the kiss will give you a feeling of being mutually caught.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll entertain loved ones who will remember this month as the good times. You’ll start by doing what you can do in 2014, and you’ll wind up doing what no one, not even you, thought you could do. In January, you’ll test authority – defer only if it passes your test. February shows you surpassing physical goals. Aries and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 5, 33, 21 and 14.

ASTROLOGICAL INSIGHTS: MERCURY IN SAGITTARIUS: Mercury, the messenger, in the exploratory, adventurous realm of Sagittarius favors the learning of new languages. This isn’t always about the words people use in other countries. Men, women, children, teens, and different professions, regions and cultural groups all speak different languages. This is the ideal time to learn how to talk to animals, approach strangers, or create a resume or profile that attracts a different set of eyes. The first step will be asking excellent questions and listening carefully to the nuances of the reply. Excellent listeners are the fastest learners.

MARS IN LIBRA: Bold warrior planet that he is, Mars never quite gets comfortable in Libra, the sign of peace. What’s he supposed to do with himself? All of his natural inclinations are limited by the regulations Libra lays out. Libra is, after all, a lover, not a fighter. As the transit wears on, aggressive energies will be tamed. Eventually, the boxing gloves come off, and we search for a more refined way to get what we want. However, this will not happen without some initial resistance. Expect to grapple with baser impulses before choosing the high road.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: In her most recent hit, Sara Bareilles encourages honesty, bravery and self-expression – values held dear by Sagittarius people, who don’t want to waste time and energy in messy communication. Bareilles was born when the moon was in Leo, the sign of entertainment. Her natal Mars, Jupiter and Saturn in Virgo indicate a hard worker who strives for perfection.
