Perhaps there are those born wise, but most people develop the quality through trial and error... mostly error. Nothing produces wisdom faster than sizable mistakes. We're rolling into the solar era of Sagittarius and several weeks in a row that favor the risk. There is really nothing to lose. We either acquire good fortune or wisdom.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It is said that if we enter by the gate of pleasure, we must leave by the gate of sorrow and vice versa. Forget the spectacular start. The best impressions involve a big finish.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Whether or you realize it or not, you belong to a bigger picture than you can see. You wouldn't guess who is thinking about you, nor would believe what opportunities are coming your way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Though there's an advantage in being first if you can swing it, there's no benefit to forcing the matter. If it's not happening naturally, sit back and take notes so you can deliver something better than the early model.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Because there's very little any single person can do about the larger contexts of life, it's so important to exert your influence over the smaller ones that actually can be, to some extent, controlled.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's good to get things off of your chest, though only if you won't be worried later about what you've revealed. If you don't have a close friend you can trust with your skeletons, the next best thing is a friend with a bad memory.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Many have no interest in participating in the larger mysteries. You have devoted a great deal of life to finding purpose, understanding beauty and knowing truth. The quest will connect you to similar thinkers.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). To stay firmly rooted in any practice at all requires not only self-discipline but also self-awareness. Know what motivates you and what discomfort you are willing to face to achieve it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The physical effort you make to feel good, healthy and relaxed will be well worth the time and money, as will any and all measures of self-care. It's not indulgence so much as prevention.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your longings are universal longings, your quests age-old, and your desire is matched by the flame that burns in the heart of every stranger you pass. You belong.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Manners are learned, but the drive to use them is either in there or it isn't. You appreciate the kindness shown to you today, perhaps by those who don't know quite the right way to do it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A person can change hairstyles, dress or accessorizes for effect, but when it comes to one's soul, the only tonic to make it shine is right action.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There are many worlds in the world. It would be easy to assume they were all like the ones you know, but they're not. This must be experienced firsthand. No amount of media consumption can reveal it.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 22). Life will align more specifically with your talents. You've waited a long time for opportunities as good as the ones that come in the next six months. Don't agonize over decisions. Do what feels right and follow through. You'll succeed beyond your imaginings. Your generosity will have long-term impacts on the lives of others. Aquarius and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 12, 18, 3 and 48.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You make someone feel safe and that's a wonderful gift to provide. TAURUS: Apply the advice of family; positive results will be immediate. GEMINI: The person who seems to have it all together is struggling in ways you wouldn't imagine. CANCER: You'll live in the moment like you know it's going to be a great memory someday. LEO: Showing up most of the time isn't enough. You're good for your word and should settle for no less. VIRGO: Someone new is listening to you, and it feels good to be held in such high regard. LIBRA: Don't worry about what's meant to be and what isn't. If you want it, then go for it. Do what it takes. SCORPIO: Your ideal partner will find your ambition exciting and won't doubt you for a second. SAGITTARIUS: Even practical people like to be spoiled sometimes and this is the moment to deliver. CAPRICORN: Believe the best and someone will live up to it. AQUARIUS: There are those who are incapable of graciously processing criticism. It's not worth it to offer them your opinion. PISCES: Even when you go out of your way to be kind, your presence will intimidate some because they want so much to impress you.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Sagittarius and Libra make a statement together with the current sun and moon position. They may even argue or kiss in public due to the solar vibes emboldening Sagittarius, much to Libra's dismay. Their differences are the exciting flint that sparks ideas for these two. It will take months to build up enough trust to followthrough on some of these adventures. Ultimately, the results will be worth it.
