Mercury Adds Marbles
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Today you're more of a pen than a pencil. Pencils are creative and flexible, willing to be erased, blended, reworked. Some days you're like that, but today your moves will be bold -- maybe even indelible.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). While the scenario at hand may be very fun, you're also being assessed inside of it. People are getting to know your style, and they are testing your character by your reaction to freedom and temptation.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Attention-neediness is a turnoff to you. You strive to be self-sufficient emotionally and every other way. Unfortunately, you can't be. No one is. People need people. The question is, how much?
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 2). Your heart connections are what fortify and inspire you, and in the months to come your expressions of love will be received in kind. Because you've been a stellar team player, you'll feel what it's like for the whole team to rally behind you -- awesome! There's a payoff in February and another in July. Aquarius and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 20, 44, 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.
CANCER: Your Cancer pooch is a homebody just as Cancer people tend to be, and this dog loves being inside with family. Territorial instincts run strong for canine Cancers, and they take a ritualistic approach to controlling their own area and property. They are little decorators who have their own ideas about where things should go. Sometimes your shoes or dirty clothes wind up in their beds. They may have a favorite toy that they keep in a particular place or bones carefully hidden away. Cancer dogs don't forget what's theirs and where it is.
Cancer dogs make excellent medical assistants because they are so tuned in to the subtle changes of their owner's chemistry and mood. These sensitive pups can be trained to recognize symptoms of a particular medical condition and respond to help their owner get help.
Cancer dogs love new groups of people interacting in their world. They are proud and like to show off at home. When you have friends over, these dogs may get more animated and will gladly perform for the company.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Britney Spears "Blackout" album, Rolling Stone named it among the most innovative and influential pop albums of the past decade. Spears' sun, Mercury, Uranus and Neptune are all in Sagittarius: That's unstoppable fire power. Spears' moon in Aquarius suggests she rolls with the times and has an ever-current attitude. Venus in Capricorn is pure business savvy.
