Horoscopes: Sunday, December 10, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). One of the worst questions of all is but two words: Why me? It leads nowhere. To focus yourself more wisely, ask yourself: How can this struggle help others? How can I make it even slightly better?

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Sometimes you celebrate in quiet, personal ways, but this is not one of those times. There's a boisterousness to your soul today.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The idea that we are special and superior to others is both a crutch and a cult. It's born out of the fear that if we are equal to all, we are too common to warrant the attention and love we need.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Social skills are easy for you now. You'll sense what others want and are ready for. You'll present your ideas with enthusiasm. And most importantly, when your turn is through, you'll hand the conversation over and just listen.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Being soft in your dealings with yourself is different from being lazy. It actually takes a good deal of energy to deal gently and thoughtfully in your own affairs. Try a little tenderness.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It's said that we're a blend of the five people we spend the most time with. This is hardly the case for you, yet it's time to get a new influence in your circle.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You know yourself - or at least you know who you were. But to know who you are becoming - that's something else. It's not a feeling that will just come over you, either. Time and exploration.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have a real connection with places today. You're like a divining rod, but instead of pointing to the underground water, it goes to good energy.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Things are heating up on the social front. You could interpret the excitement that comes with this as stress, but instead, try to see this as the harbinger of good things to come.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When he was young, the great composer Giacomo Puccini, your sign mate, was dropped by a music teacher who told him that he had no talent. You're doing something the experts don't understand. Maybe it's just beyond them.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Smiles are the light that makes gloom disappear. Go where the smiles are; that can be the tricky part, but your awareness of the energy of places will help.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Spend more time thinking of the needs and wants of another. All the answers are in there - the answers to creating smoother interactions, having more fun... and getting your way in turn.
