TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 17). A new hobby or interest is burbling up now and will take hold and solidify in 2018. Once you figure out the particulars, your commitment to the endeavor introduces you to new people and places. Your family will grow in the new year. Your leadership will be often requested and sometimes paid for. Pisces and Gemini adore you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Goodbyes are important. Whether they are happy, relieving or tearful, it is better to have the closure than not. Today, you’ll get closure on a limbo situation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When experiencing unpleasant emotions, know not to get stuck there. Do something to create a different emotion as this fluidity of feeling will keep the day clipping along.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be especially susceptible to imagery today. Take advantage of this by seeking out inspirational pictures of the life you desire, the person you want to be and the environment of your peaceful daydreams.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). As you start accumulating many positive experiences, stack them high enough to block out the negativity of the past. This is a building project worth devoting yourself to.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). How you spend your day is how you’re spending your life. You’re so aware of this now that you may be moved to cut out an activity for good because it sucks time away from things you would rather be doing.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). Walk in the sunshine. Eat delicious food. The sensuality of life will somehow feel like a thrilling escape and the sweet embrace of home all at the same time.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). You like people who surprise you, even if the surprise is a bit weird. You’d much rather be jolted by the unexpected than lulled into a waking slumber by the tedium of the overly familiar.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The person who has to make everything about himself or herself won’t change the pattern just for you. However, you may inspire this person to at least be more aware of that dynamic today, which is a start.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Getting the approval of others, avoiding their disapproval, giving a stellar performance, having things the way you want them … all of that is nice, but not necessary to your happiness.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Avoiding responsibility doesn’t make anyone happier or freer. It seems like it should! But there’s a great deal of good that comes from accepting responsibility. You provide plenty of proof for that.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be developing a better way of looking at life and some more supportive self-talk to go along with that new view. What would you tell a friend to help them if they were your position?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Service makes you feel good about who you are and your place in the world. You’ll love what comes out of this today, and you will likely sign up for more in the future.
