“SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The coming week will have something to
offend and agitate everyone — except you. Whines and moans and yelps
will ring out across the land, even as you’re emanating poise and aplomb.
You may be tempted to brazenly exploit everyone’s vulnerability and seize
control of your corner of the world, but I think that would be shortsighted
of you. A better strategy for capitalizing on your advantage would be to
dole out large doses of mercy, making sure that the people who will be
important to your future don’t lose their way.”
