Horoscopes: Wednesday, November 8, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're not afraid of being wrong because you really want to know what's right, so you'll meet even your own perception with some measure of doubt.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Familiar emotions, even negative ones, get comfortable. To feel a certain way might be nothing more than a habit. The more often you conjure up a feeling, the easier it will be to do so.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may find yourself replaying a drama over and over, and it's getting old. But adding even one new friend is enough to shake up the whole dynamic.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The miners weren't the only ones to get rich in the gold rush. Those selling shovels did mighty fine as well. There's some kind of equivalent in your realm.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's easier to be yourself when you're comfortable. Getting comfortable is the tricky part, especially in situations and around people very foreign to you. Settling in will take time and repeated exposure.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you knew you were going to get criticized for it, would you still do it? Better question: What if you knew that no matter what choice you made, it would get criticized? What would you do then?

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you try too hard to forget something you'll remember it well, and if you try too hard to remember something you'll forget it. The answer is to write things down. Somehow this will magically help with both remembering and forgetting.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Anticipate boredom, and decide that you're going to do something about it beyond your phone. For instance, paying attention to something different in the scene will open the way to new insights.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When others behave badly, it makes you want to do better. The misbehavior of others will cause you to check yourself to make sure you are not committing a similar offense.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your originality will shine through today. You'll be in the same situation as the others and take something totally different from it. For this reason, they need you and you need them.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Occasionally, the social aspect of your work can go against your mood. But once you adjust and get into the flow, your mood will change for the better. There's a prize at the end of the interaction. This one is not to be missed.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll be drawn to neutral places and underwhelming experiences, because environments that lack excitement encourage imagination. In the quiet, you'll solve a problem.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 8). You'll wield great powers of magnetism this solar return, some of which come from knowing what you want and being confident in your plan. You'll get a number of joiners before the end of the year. A special person will come back into your life. An out-of-balance exchange will become equal and just. Aries and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 40, 16, 20 and 1.
