Aquarius may need to clear out some pending work

Horoscopes for Dec. 5

  • Dec. 5, 2017 1:30 a.m.

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you feel a constant back-and-forth tug. You frequently can see both sides of an issue, and you tend to play devil’s advocate as a result. Sometimes a partner or friend takes a very controlling stance. Refuse to let this person affect you. You are in the last year of a 12-year luck cycle. If you are single, take your time getting to know someone, especially if he or she seems too good to be true. You easily could meet Mr. or Ms. Right this year.

If you are attached, the two of you love your time alone together. Often in these circumstances, you act like new lovers.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You look toward more scholarly solutions, yet some of them could cause significant tension. Brainstorm about all the possibilities with a friend. You are looking for the most workable solution possible. Do not sell yourself short. Tonight: Head home early.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Keep reaching out to others, and remain as responsive as possible. You hit a point of no return when you feel as if you can’t change direction. Your sense of humor emerges and relieves some tension. Hang out with a friend whom you haven’t seen in a while. Tonight: Chat away.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Be aware of the costs of proceeding as you have been. You could be in a touchy situation. How you handle a personal matter will change radically once you weigh the pros and cons of it. Avoid a close associate who often gets controlling about money. Tonight: Roll with the moment.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

You feel as if you are close to unstoppable. Know that others have strong opinions. Nevertheless, seize the moment and take the lead. You might not be able to change your direction, even though you wish you could. Your creativity surges. Tonight: Till the wee hours.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Much is going on behind the scenes. You cannot get past an innate resistance. You could feel as though a co-worker is on edge. Opportunities stem from your personal life. Avoid a power play at all costs. Think before leaping into action. Tonight: Vanish quickly.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Zero in on your priorities. You might not be ready for a fast change of pace. You could feel unsure of yourself. Notice how positive others are when you give them feedback. Count on getting a strong response. A neighbor has a lot to share. Tonight: Focus on the here and now.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Tension mounts to an unprecedented level. Someone could be quite put out by you taking the lead on a project. A family member could be the source of tremendous flak. Know what you want and expect from others. Be careful with your spending. Tonight: Others follow your lead.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

An associate might demand that you allow him or her to proceed as he or she wants to. You have the wherewithal and charm to say “no” without getting too much of a volatile reaction. You appear to be far more fortunate than you realize. Tonight: Avoid a controlling person.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A partner or loved one seems determined to get what he or she wants. You could be upset that you have to take a stand, but you will. You intuitively know how to handle this situation. Be willing to move in a new direction if you feel the need. Tonight: Opt for togetherness.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You might be more controlling than you realize. You could wonder what is going on with someone else. You might not be giving this person enough space to determine what it is he or she desires. A friend gives you powerful feedback; listen carefully. Tonight: Be in the moment.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Focus on accomplishment. You need to clear out some pending work or wrap up some long-term plans before you even entertain taking on anything else. You might feel pushed on some level by another person. Do not allow this to happen. Tonight: Get in a workout at the gym.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your ingenuity comes through, despite a barrier that someone else puts up to stop you. Jump over any obstacles, as you know what you are doing and why. A friend might be more involved in a power play than you had thought. Bypass this person. Tonight: Fun and games.
