HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012: This year you have the ability to expand your inner circle, and you’ll get to know your friends even better. This closeness could result in you meeting someone significant; however, be aware that your introduction might take place through a quarrel. If attached, you will work on trying not to argue about money. Perhaps having separate checking accounts would help; it is worth a try. Cancer can be very caring and vulnerable. Be careful, as he or she could develop a hard shell. A baby born today has a sun in Sagittarius and a moon in Cancer.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • You might not respond well to a power play, but that’s not surprising. Tension could build, even among family and friends.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Your ability to see through someone’s behavior makes all the difference in how you relate to this person.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Treat someone to dinner or a movie earlier in the day. For whatever reason, this person is feeling less than OK.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • You might be taken aback by how difficult certain people are. Consider going off on your own until you find friends who are more easygoing.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Others are not looking at life the same way you are. You are about living well; they are about being right – at least for today.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Focus on a friendship, and try to avoid any heavy conflicts. Others can get stuck on expressing their different points of view.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • You want to claim your power, and others let you know that your attitude is unacceptable.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Speak your mind, and others will listen. Count on repeating the conversation at a later date. Unknowingly, you could be overbearing in how you express yourself right now.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • A loved one makes certain requests. Ask yourself if you can respond positively. Do try; otherwise, you could be arguing for quite a while.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Defer to others, if possible. You might disagree about certain issues, so be careful. Expressing your feelings at this point could cause a control game to erupt.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • Get into a project and allow others to do their thing. Maintain a caring and neutral stance, as people easily could become triggered and very disagreeable.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • While others moan and groan, you work to find solutions. Though many of your friends might not hear your ideas, some will.
