Daily horoscopes: December 5, 2017


(March 20 – April 19):

Ease up on the tough love.  A close friend or sibling feels bad enough.  What s/he needs is confidence not criticism.


(April 20 – May 20):

Make sure you’re in on the joke before joining in.  You never know who’s in earshot and given how your voice carries that could spell trouble.


(May 21 – June 20):

Your financial picture looks good.  It’s your cash-flow problem that’s leaving you high and dry.  A short-term loan is all you need.  Ask and you receive.


(June 21 – July 21):

Nobody wants their heart broken, but hearts are pretty resilient.  You’ll never find out if things could work if you keep looking for guarantees.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

A childhood issue rears its ugly head, but that was then and this is now.  You are so ready to put this family skeleton to rest.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

What started out as a chore turns out to be fun.  Sometimes it’s life’s unexpected interludes that enrich you the most.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

A partnership will prove a huge boon, but you have to accept second fiddle.  It’s a small price to pay for being associated with a major player.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

An aunt or cousin offers to lend a hand.  Usually you decline, but accept.  She may prove to be a godsend.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

Friends divulge all.  Your upstanding side can’t believe what you’re hearing, but your gossipy side is dying to know what happens next.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

Refrain from self-criticism and listen to what a mentor has to say.  You have a lot of untapped potential and could go far under his/her guidance.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

You’re under review at work.  Be honest about your track record.  Downplaying accomplishments can be just as detrimental as exaggerating them.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

For your next romantic interest, try someone who lives in the same state.  Long distance affairs are great for frequent flier miles but hell on your intimacy issues.
