HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Nov. 20, 2010: This year, an opportunity to take some significant steps into your future appears. For some, this might involve a partnership. For others, this step could be moving into a much desired field. If single, you are unusually magnetic, but your wit could distance others. If attached, the two of you will enjoy sharing a pastime or new hobby together. Taurus always seems to have another approach.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • You have the capability of being very sarcastic, especially if you’re frustrated. Step back from such a situation. Stay centered, even if you are irritated.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • You are close to unstoppable as you approach a problem head-on. The other party involved could be more feisty than you anticipated. Realize that you’ve hit a vulnerable point.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Could it be possible you accept too many responsibilities? Is it possible that you have too much on your plate? Only you can answer those questions.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • You will naturally gravitate toward crowds and friends. The best time can be had with friends, even if a loved one or friend is out of sorts.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Others dominate and make requests. You are in demand. But what kind of day do you want? Opt for a productive or relaxing day.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • Be sensitive to what might be happening on the home front. There is some fall cleaning or refreshing being done. A roommate or family member could be quite sarcastic. Be nonreactive.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You can only juggle so much. You have done a skillful job. Please do note when your tone becomes sarcastic or slightly sharp. You might not realize how tired you are.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Others keep coming toward you. A “no” simply doesn’t seem to work, but it might eventually. Do some price comparison before making a major purchase.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • • You might feel more liable about a situation than you need to. Without realizing it, your sharp offensive could be revealing your vulnerability. Calm down, take a walk or do something just for you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • Tap into your imagination. You might notice a disquieting inner dialogue. Find a way to express your feelings without putting others on the defensive.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Invite friends and loved ones over. You know how to provide an easy, relaxing atmosphere.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • • Whether picking up your cleaning or chatting with a neighbor, a newfound connection naturally appears. Relax with others. A parent, boss or older relative could be a little touchy.
