Horoscopes: Sunday, November 5, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You wished for something long ago that has yet to come to fruition. If it's to see the light of day, it will be granted through your own sweat and passion.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The concept isn't so tough, but there are people in your life who still don't get it. The reason is that it's not in their best interest. That's the part to work on.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Happiness is loving what you have. If you can get there, you won't need to go anywhere, buy anything or long for anyone. Admit this contentment can be scary.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Since a very young age, you've been aware of the fact that it's not always your turn. Like your ruling luminary the moon, you shine at the time and in the proportion that's right for the moment.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A backup plan is something to make, not something to be. You'll appreciate the people who choose you first, make you feel special and let you know that you're important. Treat others likewise.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). More stuff will only make you feel heavier. You don't need to wait for an opportunity to lighten up. Lightening your load isn't an opportunity; it's a decision.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You win or you learn. You'll get either the prize or the experience and the prize. Actually, the experience is the prize.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll go on the adventure but forget to take a souvenir. That's really fine, because you'd rather have stories to tell.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It's not always the case, but today the right path will also happen to be the easiest one. Don't overthink it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You'll approach today with a lot of hustle and heart. Your ambitious nature keeps you going long after the others have stopped. A special person will observe and admire your approach.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're not afraid to take on the big issues - the ones that affect many more people than just you. You will be an important part of the solution.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A new friend enters your scene, bringing romantic potential in tow. This may not involve you directly, but you could link people together and change lives with your social influence.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 5). Victory will be yours, though you should know that it won't be easy. It will take more than determination to get to the difficult goal you've set. Plan it out. Plot milestones to stay accountable and motivated along the way. The main obstacle may seem larger than life, but the answer will be about as small as life can get. Leo and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 31, 3, 16 and 28.
