Horoscopes for Dec. 7

  • Dec. 7, 2017 1:30 a.m.

This year you experience smooth sailing. Stay upbeat, and try not to fall into a boring routine. Even if you stumble into a troublesome experience, you will land well. Take a hard look at your life, and eliminate whatever doesn’t work anymore. If you are single, you might opt to change your status. Check out a potential sweetie with care, as he or she might not be as authentic as you would like. If you are attached, the two of you benefit from taking a workshop or class together. You also might opt to take a special trip as a couple.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You will be more realistic about your budget. Perhaps the reason you frequently break it is that you are too hard on yourself. Opportunities come in various forms, but they are likely to demand a bit of spending. You know your limits — honor them. Tonight: As you like it.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Friends surround you, and they’re determined to have their way when dealing with you. You might not be as easygoing as they would like. Make yourself a little less available for the time being. Use care with spending and with money decisions. Tonight: Paint the town red.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Others think you make strong choices. As a result, you are in a position of leadership, whether you like it or not. You might not realize how fortunate you are at the moment, but you can take risks and land well. Be willing to go for what you desire. Tonight: Make it your treat.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Don’t be tempted to take any other path than the one that is clearly right for you. You could get confused by an adviser, especially if he or she thinks in terms of “no pain, no gain.” You will land well no matter what. Tonight: Follow the music as you think about the weekend.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

One-on-one relating becomes pivotal in a key relationship. Your ability to connect with others has been your strong suit. Listen to what seems like a good offer from a friend. This person could become quite fortunate for you. Tonight: Accept a loved one’s suggestion.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You could be in a situation where you need to defer to someone else. Your perspective is appreciated, but the other party is determined to make his or her own choice regardless of what you say. Don’t take a loved one for granted. Listen to his or her thoughts. Tonight: Say “yes.”

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might question some of the ideas that head your way. You might not agree with an associate who is determined to manage a project or situation his or her own way. Knowing when to back off will be critical to succeeding. Tonight: Run some errands on the way home.
