Narcissism in the Fire-Sign Sky As for the people who seem to be in love with themselves, there's something oddly attractive about them at first.

Horoscopes by Holiday for December 1
It's an eventful time in the heavens. The full moon in Gemini brings a release. Communication and daily proceedings that were on hold will now progress. Uranus, the rebel of the zodiac, decides to stop all the retrograde madness and start transiting forward. In what aspect of your life would you like to do the same? Bust a move!
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The pressure is on, but that's where you shine brightest. With the clock ticking, everyone watching and the whole team counting on you — that's just how you like it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your gift for prediction is uncanny. You seem to know where things are headed — relationships and jobs particularly — long before everyone else does. This kind of knowledge reflects a deeply intuitive and very helpful gift.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). While some around you will be fascinated with vapid, transitory things, for you the important stuff is what doesn't change: who you love and your spirituality for starters. Today you'll tend toward seeing the long term in everything.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will rein in some of the extreme behavior of your youth. The deep plummets aren't worth the breathtaking heights. The trade-off for stability is more than worth it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There's nothing wrong with going against the flow, as you well know. You won't feel like being a follower today. You'll prefer to make your own fun in your own time rather than have your pleasure dictated to you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are the first to be called on by a friend in need. There are two reasons for this: One is your loyalty and genuine desire to help, and the other is your extraordinary resourcefulness. You come up with quick answers that work.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You remember a time when big projects seemed like insurmountable mountains, but through determination and experience, you now see them as highly rewarding opportunities. This is a sign of your maturity and tenaciousness.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Never satisfied with "good enough," you put everything you have into a project and aim for the best. It's not really something you choose to do. It's just that the pursuit of perfection is basic to your personality.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are yearning for something new. Just what, you can't say, but a fuzzy outline is beginning to take shape in your mind. Don't strain yourself to see it more clearly; it will come of its own accord.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll get highly favorable reviews. You're not putting on a show or doing anything calculated, you're just being yourself. Being your natural self is a harder thing to do than most people think — thus the good press.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are often sensitive to other people's feelings, even to the point of reading their moods in a gesture. Today your intuition is even more keen than usual, especially in regards to a Cancer person.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 1). You will be looking and feeling fantastic. With steady progress through the next two months, your habits support your image of who you want to be. This month you'll meet someone who understands you and can help you develop your talents. The end of January brings romance. February's business idea is a winner. Aries and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 33, 4, 17 and 40.
HOW TO GET THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS WITH GRACE: As the sign of relationships, balance and harmony, LIBRA tends to have natural grace in even the most chaotic scenarios. So the prospect of the high-pressured holidays doesn't seem as daunting to Libra as it might to other signs. When various mishaps occur, from family feuds to leaden fruitcakes or gifts that quickly join the re-gift pile, Libra simply takes it in stride. One of the ways Libra maintains a positive outlook is by simplifying holiday proceedings. There is typically much to choose from during the holidays — where to go, who to see, what to bring, send, craft, cook, buy… And since decision-making isn't really a strong suit for the sign of the scales, simplifying the options is a must. Libra does well to adhere to some personal rules for guidance. For instance: Only say "yes" to the events you really, really, really want to attend. And: Allot a certain budget for gift buying, and stay in the limits. Once a few rules are established, Libra can relax and let the natural charm and grace he or she was born with shine through.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: This provocative fire sign is adept at igniting rumors, causing a commotion and living in the center of the circus. Britney Spears is a Sagittarius with Mercury, Uranus and Neptune all in that exciting realm of the zodiac, as well. Venus in Capricorn balances out all that fire sign energy with a keen business sense and a deep love of work. Spears considers it her job not to be boring, and she delivers.
