The moon swells like an oversized party balloon being inflated to pop at the start of the new year! The New Year’s moon will be a supermoon, meaning that it will seem a lot bigger and brighter because it’s on its closest trajectory to Earth. But that’s tomorrow. We’re not quite there yet — just as we’re not quite in the new year yet. Be safe; be happy!
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 31). You’ve been bold, courageous and impressive. All the attention taught you the value of less flashy attributes — kindness, loyalty and reliability. Those qualities earn you money, friends and love. In January, advertise your services; the investment will quickly pay off. Your family will multiply in 2018. Leo and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 29, 14, 17 and 38.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Anyone with money can buy goods and services, but smooth transactions take more than money; they take class. It’s why you’ll endeavor to learn the correct manner and etiquette so a cool experience can be had by all.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The more you are impressed by others, the more they are impressed with you. Someone who needs attention will soak up all you’re giving and be absolutely charmed by you in the process.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There’s an outcome you’ve been thinking about, and today is the day you’ll reach the maximum number of thoughts you can have about the thing before action is an absolute necessity.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Good thoughts will glow up your aura. And if you don’t believe in an aura, your aura will not suffer in the least. You will still enjoy the warmth of all who brighten up in your light.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you’re more concerned than usual about your image, it’s only because you want to make sure your contributions to others are effective and as useful as can be. You’ll do what it takes to present yourself in a way that puts others at ease.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The race is long and currently not quite appealing enough to motivate you to train. However, helping someone else get through the finish line — now that’s a purpose you can get behind (and you’ll wind up crossing, too!).
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When you express your needs and wants, there are those who then shift the focus to their own similar story and call it empathy. That’s not empathy. Supportive people stick with your thing and investigate further.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Avoid being the bright star of the group today; you’ll only attract haters. The brighter the light the more distinct the shadow. Instead, help others shine so everyone looks good together.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your sense of humor is an ever developing facet of your personality. Anyone who can’t appreciate this probably isn’t the best match for you. You don’t always get to choose, but when you do, choose people who get you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your powers of organization are remarkable. You’ll put a mess back in order, and it won’t even take you that much time. Today’s results will be highly satisfactory on all counts.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Something that’s supposed to be making your life easier may be doing the opposite right now, but stay the course. Once you’re over the learning curve, this will be brilliant.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A whimsical mood prevails. There’s a tangent you’d like to spin into. Sure it’s light on logic, but there’s something in this instinct that goes beyond reason and will serve you very well in the future.
