TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 11). You’ll realize a kind of cosmic responsibility: You’re meant to be a thought leader. You’ll capture curiosity and lead bright minds to conclusions that inspire them to help, contribute and work at making the world better. It all starts with your immersing yourself in the things that ignite your passion. Aries and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 2, 22, 28 and 13.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are a few questions to stay away from today. ”What’s the point?” ”Why?” ”What does it mean?” These questions will only send you on a circular path when you’re really needing to get somewhere new.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The one who craves attention has a creative way of getting yours. It will actually be a pleasure to focus on this worthy candidate. You’ll get back everything you put in and more.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your best guess is good enough. You could gather more information, but it wouldn’t make you any more prepared. This is as certain as you’ll be. Move on what you know.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re interesting to someone, and because of this, you’re being observed more closely than you think. You’ll effectively project the image you want to achieve.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ve experienced greatness, and you want your work to be just as great, if not better. The effort you put into a task will transform into pleasure for the one who gets to experience the end product.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’re approaching a season of tranquility. There’s some angst to work out along the way. There’s no way around it; you have to go through it. Be brave and before you know it you’ll be on the other side.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your imagination will produce wonders. Once a big idea is born, it’s forever part of the world. ”An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an idea whose time has come.” — Victor Hugo

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Remember when this was an adventure? Now it’s the tiresome same-o. Good news, though: There will be an opportunity to change it up and get back some of that initial excitement.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re definitely at your intellectual best today. You can use the excellent vibes to study hard, absorb much and think productively. You’ll also do well on a test.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You feel a real connection to art. What you love will come alive in your world, influencing how you behave, your plans for the future and the company you keep.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Make the effort to meet with more people who think like you do and appreciate the same things. When you have someone to share a pleasure with, the joy will double up on you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The other person in a conflict is not really against you; rather, this person is for himself (or herself). Come at it from this mindset and you’ll quickly and happily resolve this.
