Last Breath of Sagittarius

In these final moments of the Sagittarian sun of 2022, we have to ask ourselves questions of resolve. Did we adventure? Were we brave? Did we discover new lands of new people? Historically, the most notable adventurers and explorers have set out to find one thing and ended up in quite another place. If this is you, count yourself among the greats.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When you think about the vastness of the world and its billions of human inhabitants, it makes no sense to expect too much from any one source. Establish many channels to what you need; life becomes unstrained.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Of course you'll be more successful if you can act on good information, but there may not be time to go as deep into the research as you'd like to today. Luckily, your intuition is on 11 and will fill in the gaps for you!

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Pay attention to what makes you ask questions. This is how new interests and epic quests start -- with the spark of curiosity. Curiosity will do the job of courage today. It will be strong enough to push you past a fear.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). New isn't always better, but sometimes the inferior new thing is the right choice anyway. The reason you crave novelty is because you actually need it. Freshness wakes you up to your life.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Stick with what you said you'd do and complete some version of it. It doesn't have to be the same version you set out to accomplish, but having some kind of finality will satisfy your mind and keep your standards for yourself intact.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'd rather be a witness than a judge. When it comes to matters of style and personal choices where no one gets hurt, you have the option of being a detached observation. You're not required to moralize or hand in a verdict.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If a hero swept in to save the day, you'd rather it was a hero who also had problems, especially the sort you could handle, thus repaying the favor. You hate to be indebted in any way and will go far to avoid creating that dynamic.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You can't really work through a feeling without feeling it. Don't worry, it won't last. Feelings are clouds drifting through, changing shape, dissipating. Let the emotion briefly rock you. On the other side, you'll be more powerful.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You've known the pain of telling the truth, also the pain of hiding it. This is why you deeply appreciate the situation you're in today. Your honesty is genuinely needed and wanted.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Shopping around is fun if you're in the mood but laborious if you're not. You won't have to shop, though, because you'll quickly recognize what's right for you -- a perk of knowing yourself so well!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll look for ways to connect the small things you do to a bigger vision of your future. One day it will be a thrill to see how it all lines up. Until then, you'll keep nudging your life and choices into alignment.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Relationships are like cooking. Some dishes work with a few simple ingredients, and others require you to balance many elements, steps and techniques. Neither way is better; it just depends on what you're in the mood for.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 19). Learning is your work and your play. You'll love the rewards of your intellectual pursuits this year, some of them tangible, many indescribably enriching. At times, life will open itself to you, vivid and expansive. You can afford to be a bit choosy with your relationships, as you have much to offer and very specific wants. Cancer and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 30, 22, 1 and 33.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Among the numerous projects filling the overflowing schedule of Jake Gyllenhaal is "Francis and the Godfather," in which Gyllenhaal will tribute the late, great producer Robert Evans. Four luminaries in the high-energy sign of Sagittarius indicate confidence, charisma and an adventurous spirit. A witty Gemini Moon says Gyllenhaal is the life of the dinner party, or "Ambulance" when applicable.
