Happy birthday: for Wednesday, Nov. 9. This year communication flourishes, especially with those to whom you are closest. You become more joyful, and as a result, more enjoyable to be around. If you are single, you could meet someone who surprises you with his or her vibrancy and willingness to be a part of your life. You also might meet someone who is very attractive but not emotionally available. If you are attached, the two of you connect on many different levels. Be careful not to suppress your less comfortable feelings; otherwise, they are likely to pop up at the most inconvenient moments. PISCES is always fun to be around. Aries (March 21-April 19): ★★★ You have known how a friend feels about a certain issue, but perhaps you didn’t expect this person to act like a crusader. What happens in the near future might provoke some anger on your part. Be willing to make an adjustment. Others remain responsive to you. Tonight: Early to bed. Taurus (April 20-May 20): ★★★★ A close partner or loved one seems to pull back once more and clam up. Detach and look at the situation not only from this person’s point of view, but also someone else’s. You will gain a better grasp on the situation as a result. Tonight: Meet a loved one at a favorite dinner spot. Gemini (May 21-June 20): ★★★ Understand what is happening with a close loved one. Your drive to resolve any issues between the two of you allows greater give-and-take. You will continue to take the lead in making your goals become a reality. Remain sure of yourself. Tonight: Could go late. Cancer (June 21-July 22): ★★★★★ One-on-one relating could elicit an odd response. Your willingness to deal with someone else might cause the other party to question your motives. Pace yourself, as you have a lot to do. A call will encourage you to take a trip in the near future. Tonight: Go to the gym, then decide. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): ★★★★★ One-on-one relating takes you down a new path. Regardless of whether you are willing to change direction, resistance of some kind is likely to emerge. A close friend could prove to be headstrong. Listen to the feedback you get. Tonight: Go with someone else’s suggestion. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): ★★★★ Defer to someone else, and listen to his or her ideas and suggestions. You are efficient and precise, whereas this person tends to express an unusually dynamic imagination. Together, you are sure-bet winners. Tonight: Willingly make an adjustment to your schedule. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): ★★★ Pace yourself, and know full well that you might be too exhausted to head in a direction that demands greater creativity and energy than you currently possess. If need be, adjust your schedule. You might want to throw your plans to the wind. Tonight: Slow down. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): ★★★★ Understand what is going on within you before you launch into a deeply emotional conversation with someone. Be honest with yourself. Tread carefully when having a discussion that involves your home or your personal life. Tonight: Be naughty -- take a midweek break! Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): ★★★★ You can’t seem to come to terms with someone’s efforts to tame a problematic situation. Not only has this person’s approach affected you, but it also is very different from your style. Your imagination might take you down an odd path. Tonight: Take better care of yourself. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): ★★★★ Keep conversations moving, and don’t get locked into any heavy conversations or awkward spots, if possible. Your sixth sense kicks in and allows you to be more relaxed. Make an effort to adapt to others, or at least listen to them more carefully.
Tonight: Speak your mind. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): ★★★★ You might want to take a firmer stand on a money matter. You could see funds slipping through your fingers. Say ‘’no’’ to a financial deal that seems too good to be true. Support yourself in making a strong decision. Don’t ignore a personal matter. Tonight: Your treat. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): ★★★★★ You are full of fun and energy. Others clearly want to join in. Nevertheless, you might want to be selective about your company. You might be in the midst of reviewing a long-term goal. Is it as relevant as you originally believed it to be? Tonight: All eyes turn to you.
