HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Nov. 17, 2011: People experience you at your most dynamic. You attract many people, and often the unexpected occurs. If single, a friend could become more, or you could meet someone through your associations. If attached, the two of you need to be as conscious about your friendship as you are about your love connection. Leo always adds drama to the moment. A baby born today has a sun in Scorpio and a moon in Leo.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Communication and caring merge. Nearly everyone gets it. Just don’t make more of a bond than exists. If you’re looking for a solution, it simply comes out of the blue.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Your home, family and security continue to be high priorities. You cannot minimize the importance of a child or loved one in your daily life.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • You have a very unique communication style. You cannot minimize the impact of your words and choices. Return calls; initiate meetings.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Be aware of what you have to offer. Don’t underestimate yourself, which you tend to do frequently. Use an innate ability to draw others to your way of thinking.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • • You have impact! Your plate is full, too. Your ability to home in on the goal and the greater good helps direct a meeting and its different supporters.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • Much is going on that isn’t apparent. You might sense it, or you just might plain know. Don’t worry about playing a less obvious role right now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • Where you are is certainly where others want to be. You need to understand exactly what is happening with a key friend or loved one.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • Sometimes you might want to check out what it feels like to be someone else. Take advantage of an opportunity to play his or her role to gain a new perspective.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • • Keep reaching out for others and gaining different ideas. As many people as you know is as many ideas that can come forward. Be open to the process.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • Deal directly with a key associate or a series of important people in your life. Look at what happens when others feel valued.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • Listen to others. Know that saying a simple “no” might not be as effective as letting another person try out his or her idea.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Toss yourself into work and see how much you accomplish. Remain upbeat with a partner who can be cranky, as well as a loved one.
