Horoscopes: Sunday, November 12, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The heart of everyone you talk to will be revealed in mundane, straightforward statements because you listen with your whole self - ears, heart, mind. Listen with the mind of the sky.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Others will be drawn in by your warmth and charm. Though you'd love to be able to accommodate everyone, there's only a certain number of people you can have close to you at one time.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A cycle of goodness begins with what you do today to make another person's life better. For both of you, the action results in your feeling more positive.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your love of stories isn't an indulgence; it's a necessary part of your growth. A good story changes you. You see the world differently because of it; you behave differently because of that.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll sing your woes and dance your wins, maybe at the same time. Expression is your strength, and many will be grateful that there's someone in the world giving voice to what they feel.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll experience a strong pull toward an idea, person or place in which your destiny lies dormant, waiting for your arrival to awaken the sleeping potential.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You became part of the group by doing and giving. Know your value. Don't get so busy you can't take in the energy of your environment.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Uncertainty can cause terrible anxiety, or it can produce a delicious sense of anticipation. This powerful ingredient is best added in small doses.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Without dramatic tension, the story falls flat. Welcome a little unrest; don't resolve everything so quickly.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your fellow Capricorn Benjamin Franklin once suggested that "the U.S. Constitution doesn't guarantee happiness, only the pursuit of it. You have to catch up with it yourself." Chase it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Desire isn't necessarily a thing that comes naturally. Often, it must be created.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Cultivating a sense of play makes you more fun to be around, allows you to have more fun with your life and puts you in a stellar position for solving problems.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 12). There will be plenty of chances to make wonderful deals and compromises in 2018. But for the next six weeks, avoid decisions by committee. The more self-determination in your world the better. A stylistic upgrade will have practical benefits in February. Love will take center stage and then change the set. Taurus and Gemini adore you. Lucky numbers: 49, 3, 11, 20 and 5.
