Should you tell the other person how you really feel? This needs to be carefully weighed in an equation dividing the intensity of the sentiment by its likely duration, and you need to factor in the potential for disruption and inconvenience and the likely emotional fallout. The lunar shift from Libra to Scorpio is a complicated time for sharing.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 3). The congruence of speech and action will be key to your success. It’s a simple chain. You’ll say what you’re going to do, do it and then say what you did. More highlights of the year include a responsibility that falls to you, a sharp increase in the reach and efficacy of your social network, and a sweet romantic connection. Libra and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 21, 8, 40 and 11.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Just as the bodybuilder grows muscles by alternately exhausting and resting them, you will become emotionally stronger through bearing and releasing emotional burdens.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). In this astounding world, so much that seemed impossible has already become part of daily life. Getting focused amid all of these options will be both challenging and very worth the effort.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re not working for the feedback, but you do need it to better understand how others are impacted by what you do. You’re not in it for the praise, laughter or applause, but this will let you know when you’re on the right track.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The potential to be hurt goes up exponentially in a boat or in a relationship. But what would life be like without a boat ride or another person to bounce around emotional waters with? Take the risk. At heart, you’re a sailor.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Part of your job is to teach others, so it gets a little frustrating when they don’t seem to be learning. It might help you to think in terms of helping others find what’s already inside them.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). To breathe easy — that’s the goal in all areas today. Widen the margins. Give yourself a bigger berth. Be generous with the best things, such as compassion and kindness.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ve a large capacity for reason, but don’t forget to keep dreaming. Those who will tamp down ideas with too heavy a dose of logic and practicality are no more correct than imaginative fools.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The pleasure of creating and playing is so often squashed by the pressure to do so. That’s why, if you can in any way manage it, keeping money out of the equation might be very uplifting to the experience.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The advances are exciting when they come, but do keep in mind that there’s inevitably some awkwardness in growth. One part gets bigger faster; the other has to catch up. Take heart in knowing that this is par for the course.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s hard to say why you feel the way you do, and if you can’t come up with a good enough answer, you might talk yourself out of the feeling. But just because you don’t know the origin of the feeling doesn’t make it incorrect.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). How do you get there? One foot in front of the other. Inch by inch, bit by bit. The biggest challenge will be consistency. Break the action down into extremely small parts and the consistency will cease to be an issue.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you can solve the problem in a few steps, you will. No complaint. The complaint only happens when you’re not sure how to solve the problem. Ideally, the complaint will inform you and not be a substitute for the solution.
