Horoscopes: Thursday, December 14, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Anything and everything can be taken to extremes, including the smallest things. It's why you're careful about what you get started these days. When in doubt, toe the straight, clean line.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can go along with the program or raise your hand. "There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth: not going all the way, and not starting." - Buddha

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Identity is more fluid and nuanced than most people think. But as the twins of the zodiac, you already understand that each person is often a subtly different person for every fresh situation.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Invisible cords entwine your soul with the soul of each person you love. Today, you can send and receive messages through these cords regardless of where the other person is.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Even though you're not entirely happy in every moment with where you are, in many ways the setting of the day will feel ideal. Windows sparkling with promise, decorated doors of opportunity, intrigue at every corner.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your best guess is good but not good enough to act on. A scientific approach is going to bother your teammates and slow the action considerably. It will also keep you from future regret.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Just when you think you're doing better in a certain area, it gets worse in another. Growth can be strange, but you can be sure it's all in a positive direction.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). On the one hand, you love yourself enough to get the things you want. On the other hand, this involves sacrifice and work you don't feel like doing. So be a good coach. That's what's needed.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You'll experience luck so uncanny your actions may seem to be guided by an invisible hand. Don't waste this one - believe the impulse, act on it, and follow through.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You hold the people around you to a certain standard, and you hold yourself to one that's much, much higher. This hardly seems fair, but it will work out for you and keep you from hurt.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You might get nostalgic for the moment you're living right now. Love does this to you. You realize you're in a sweet, shared part of life passing through your fingers like a handful of sugar.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll become increasingly self-sufficient as this solar return progresses. A kind stranger comes into the picture in early 2018 who can aid your interests.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 14). Your attuning with nature will be more than a hobby; it will be a path to physical vitality, better relationships and there may even be professional facets. There's a fun social development at the start of 2018 that will help your family. Travel in March; invest in April. Perks of friendship will enhance the summer. Aries and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 20, 1, 28 and 33.
