Venus Transition Imminent
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Oscar Wilde once put it like this: "The world was my oyster, but I used the wrong fork!" Ignore social formalities at your own peril. If you don't know then read, ask or observe until you pick up on what you're supposed to do.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When people want what you have, it's both flattering and frustrating. They often act as if you got there by luck. Outsiders just don't realize the effort that went behind all this. It will be your job to enlighten.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Think it over; write about it; talk about it with a trusted friend. Self-reflection will help you uncover your motivation for upholding bad habits and help you find a healthier way to meet your needs.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 29). Happiness is not the goal. To change something, help someone, make a lasting impression on the world and set up a future you can be proud of -- that's the goal. Happiness will, however, be a byproduct of your efforts -- as will sweat and toil. The more you can tolerate, the richer you'll be (financially and otherwise). Leo and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 40, 11, 19 and 32.
ASTROLOGICAL PUPPY PROFILE: If you know when your pet was born, check out his or her sun sign and the personality that goes with it!
TAURUS: The Taurus dog is most loyal to the person who feeds him or her. Born under the sign of appetite, the Taurus dog is motivated by food and learns quickly for the right treat.
This earth-sign dog loves the outdoors and can run in nature for long distances. He or she has a keen nose and sniffing the various things found in nature is one of this dog's great pleasures in life -- next to digging holes. Unless you take your Taurus dog places where it's acceptable to dig holes, you can say goodbye to your nice lawn.
Like Taurus people, Taurus dogs derive self-esteem from working and are hard workers who do not give up easily on difficult jobs. They make excellent service dogs in many areas of life. But if your Taurus dog is more inclined toward the pampered-pooch lifestyle; Taurus dogs wear that role well, too. The really seem to appreciate nice things and have a healthy respect for possessions.
Taurus also rules the throat, and this dog has a strong, intimidating bark. Rules about barking should be enforced early on, or the dog will wear out his or her owner's ears and patience, not to mention any neighbors the owner might have.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Anna Faris recently wrote a hilarious new memoir, "Unqualified," and hosts a podcast by the same name. The spirited Sagittarius was born when the moon was in Pisces, an ideal placement for artist in spite of, or perhaps because of, the intense empathy and sensitivity of the sign. Saturn in Leo suggests that the entertainment business is a primary source for life lessons.
