Aries (March 21-April 19): You emulate a well-respected leader. You strive to acquire this one's stellar listening skills and ability to reply honestly.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): If you want to keep a secret, don't tell it to a blabbermouth. You have something to publicize and can be sure everyone will know if you tell your "secret" to said blabbermouth.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): There's something you would love to do if you only had the money. Pretend you do have the money, and keep dreaming about this. It is possible.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): When you're not getting through to someone, the usual reaction is to raise the volume. Try another approach today. Walk away.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Don't stubbornly stick to your path to such a degree that you won't get off of it when you see that there's a better way to your goal.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You'll receive valuable input from others, though it comes in a rough form. You'll have to sort through the muck to find the gems.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Humility is the best antidote to the kinds of problems you encounter today.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): What you do out of the goodness of your heart is so rewarding that you wouldn't want any reward. That would cheapen the moment.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): There's something you know would enrich your life. Do not put this off until you have the time. Do it now.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can do something spectacular with an upcoming presentation or event. This happens only through a lot of unglamorous labor.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You will get input you were not expecting. You'll handle your surprise with grace and be able to make the most of the opinions you gather.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): As ridiculous as some personal policies and rules may seem, recognize that a boundary is a boundary. Cross at your peril.
Today's birthday (Dec. 4): You have luck in attracting sponsors and teachers. Tell everyone what you want to do. January brings romantic professions. In February, a mentor will inspire you and keep you on track. Upgrade your education, skills or style in May. Gemini and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are 5, 2, 11, 29 and 19.
