Things are always changing. Most of the time, things change slowly. When they change quickly, it makes headlines — in the world, in your story. If you feel unchanged by the last few weeks, you're due for a shake-up. It's possible. It's probable. In this last day of the 2016 Scorpio sun, ask for a revelation.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you agree to another person's qualifications, you'll lose. Take charge of the game. Make your own qualifications. When it's your moment, don't let anyone else control the scene.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Yes, time is money, but it's so much more valuable than money, really. In the end, no dollar amount can buy a person more time. So to whom will you give your time? That person is lucky indeed.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Loved ones will go out of their way to assist you, mostly because you are warm, open and appreciative every time they do. Helping you is rewarding for them. You make yourself fun to help.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your cosmic gift: objectivity. Give some thought to how you'd like to be perceived, and work on promoting this aspect of yourself in all of your dealings.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). This day won't seem special at first, but it is. It starts with your appreciation for the gift of life. When you think of the lives of others, you feel mighty grateful that you get to live yours.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Use your dramatic flair to bring people together. Your instinct about how to create a mood won't fail you. Set the stage for a wonderful experience, and then invite people to enjoy it with you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In an ideal world you would see with perfect clarity before you made your decision. This isn't practical. It's not even possible. There is no way to take in all the factors. Go with your gut.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll be amazed at what others do to help you, though you should know that you would do the same and more for them, and probably already have.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Ask to get paid for your work. If you don't, people will devalue your contribution. You don't have to charge a big sum, but do charge something.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Like a porcupine, you are capable of shooting quills in self-defense. Yours are emotional, of course, but that doesn't make them any less painful to those who are on the receiving end.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). However disconcerting it may seem to be out of step with the others around you, this is actually a good thing. It will keep you objective. You'll be immune to group hypnosis.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Maybe it's for the best that hearts have strong intelligence but cannot think. As one 17th-century philosopher put it, "The heart has its reasons which reason knows nothing of" (Blaise Pascal).
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 21). This year will bring your favorite challenges — the type you feel confident, but not sure, you can surmount. You've a secret advantage in December's competition. You could get used to the sweet care you receive in January. In fact, you'll have to. You'll be rewarded greatly for what you teach a younger person in 2016. Pisces and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 7, 13, 28 and 17.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I'm a 77-year-old Libra writing my memoirs so that my children will have my side of the family history. I'm not entirely proud of everything I've done in my life, but I do know that I did them for a reason. I'm no criminal, and yet I know I've hurt people and also at times taken the low road when I should have taken the high road. Can I ethically leave out all of the bad parts?"
As the sign of the scales Libra has a strong sense of justice. But these are your memoirs, not your testimony in a court of law. It is said that history is written by the victors, and, as the star of your story, you fall into that category. This is your chance to celebrate whatever aspects of your life that you would like to focus on. Your reticence to do so suggests to me that you will find a great benefit in writing about the parts of your life you'd rather forget, too. Think of this as an exercise to help you come to terms with the complete person you are now. It won't be part of your memoirs, just part of your healing. Best of luck!
CELEBRITY PROFILES: "Canadian Idol" contestant and the singer of smash-hit "Call Me Maybe," Carly Rae Jepsen was born on the cusp of Scorpio and Sagittarius — so which is she? Because the sun was still in Scorpio on November 21, 1985, she is a Scorpio. But she has plenty of Sagittarian energy in her chart, too. Look for Jepsen in the January 2016 television production of "Grease Live." She plays Frenchy!
