Today’s daily horoscope for Dec. 9, 2023

Venus, Jupiter and Jealousy

Scientific studies suggest humans are not the only ones who experience jealousy, as some domestic pets and nonhuman primates show signs of experiencing this powerful emotion. Venus opposite Jupiter suggests that jealousy, while unpleasant, can be used for good. It’s an arrow pointing to the heart of what matters to us, energizing and sharpening our motivation.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The group needs a leader. You know what’s needed. Step in and make quick work of it. Also, this is a day for reconciliation. Kiss and make up, shake and make up, or pay and make up. Amends. Amen.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The work will be something like fishing, but don’t cast a wide net. It will be too much trouble sorting through all the randomness you’ll catch. Instead, use the lure most likely to attract exactly what you want.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s not in your control how the externals fall into place, but you’ll find a way to make it work. A belief that buoys you: life is always unfolding according to whatever is best and most evolutionary for you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Keep in mind that the way someone interacts with you is often indicative of how they interact with others. Think about this before you befriend, hire or, as the case may be, entrust a person with your heart.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The physical space may not be conducive to the work you want to do, but you’ll make up for it with your incredibly strong will. You will have great control over your mindset. Tonight, you’re favored to win a game of chance.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Glass and cardboard aren’t the only things to recycle today. Other bits of work, history and connection will be revived for a new purpose. People will be happy to see the useful and lovely ways you resurrect the past.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Just like crunches build stomach muscles, feeling your emotions builds up a tolerance and understanding of them, lending a core of strength even more useful to you than a six-pack of abs.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You can only prepare to a certain degree because reality is always going to have an element of unpredictability. This breathing, pulsing experience comes with a cost that your brave heart will be willing to pay.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s easy to use intuition when there is little else to go on but using it when you have plenty of other information takes guts. You can speculate all the livelong day about what might happen, but you’ll never really know until you exercise your option.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Total self-acceptance is the absence of harsh self-criticism, painful self-consciousness and punishment for human and normal reactions to life. Moments of total self-acceptance will feel simply like you’re enjoying yourself, no impediments.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Oddly enough, being too cooperative and helpful will bring problems into a situation. Lean back. Let people figure out their contribution. Being eager to please may produce a dynamic you won’t want perpetuated.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are many possible ways to be divorced from the moment, including reliving the past, ruminating about yesterday or worrying about the future. Anything that interferes with your union with the present is a misuse of time.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 9). A fascinating interest happily absorbs you, sending you on a bright trajectory. People connect with your lighthearted and experimental approach; you’ll invent something truly unique. More highlights: You’ll thrive in competition and take home a prize. You’ll stumble on the habits and influences that contribute to your health and delight. Capricorn and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 20, 22, 1 and 17.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Simon Helberg embraces the Sagittarian spirit of exploration whether he’s playing an accompanist, astronaut or FBI agent. His worldly fire sign drive led him to French citizenship and work in the international film, “Annette.” Three natal Sagittarius luminaries suggest that Helberg is an independent thinker who loves to travel and learn different cultures. Moon and Mars in Capricorn signal a gift for strategy, business and leadership.
