There are two types of people who are ideal for the competition going on today. They are 1) the people who enjoy the game so much they would play it competition or no, and 2) the people who enjoy competition so much they’ll compete at anything. Mercury retrograde is an open a bag of marbles on the floor of our wacky escapades.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 2). Your heart connections are what fortify and inspire you, and in the months to come your expressions of love will be received in kind. Because you’ve been a stellar team player, you’ll feel what it’s like for the whole team to rally behind you — awesome! There’s a payoff in February and another in July. Aquarius and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 20, 44, 19 and 32.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You were blamed for something that wasn’t your fault, but that’s just part of love. Two people in love project things, mistake each other’s identities, see only who they want to see instead of who is actually standing before them.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There is no circumstance or person who is completely on one side of morality. “All human beings are commingled out of good and evil.“ — Robert Louis Stevenson

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re finding out that it’s better to have numerous friends than to depend on one person for affection. Tonight you’ll be the star, so dress the part. You’ll enjoy it more when your outside reflects the role.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Those close to you have needs, but you’re not the only one who can fill them. Check in with yourself. Assess what you have to give. The saying goes, “You can’t pour from an empty cup.”

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll reel in the admirers with your social ease. And as long as you stay aware of other people’s sensitivities and steer clear of them, you’ll keep those admirers.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A level of detachment will help you achieve the peace you crave. Neutrality helps you recognize the consequences of any action. Often, consequences are neither reward nor punishment — just the cause of another effect.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Financial exchanges are clean, but there’s something magical about volunteer exchanges that beats a clean deal. Tonight a friend’s introduction will set off a chain of fortuitous events.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re not sure what someone wants from you, but you know there’s something. Get closer and find out. Extend a social invitation and let the conversation fly loose and lively.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Just because you’re fortunate (and there are many ways in which you have been blessed) doesn’t mean you’re happy. Normalcy must be breached! Challenge! Change! All are necessary components of joy.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Today you’re more of a pen than a pencil. Pencils are creative and flexible, willing to be erased, blended, reworked. Some days you’re like that, but today your moves will be bold — maybe even indelible.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). While the scenario at hand may be very fun, you’re also being assessed inside of it. People are getting to know your style, and they are testing your character by your reaction to freedom and temptation.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Attention-neediness is a turnoff to you. You strive to be self-sufficient emotionally and every other way. Unfortunately, you can’t be. No one is. People need people. The question is, how much?
