HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, Nov. 2, 2012: This year you are direct and say what you think. Know that you can be open without having to hurt anyone’s feelings, though do be aware that you will need to make a conscious effort. If single, your high magnetic energy attracts many potential sweeties. Learn how to express your negative feelings before they evolve into more. If attached, you often might have a row with your partner. Is that the effect you want? Gemini can be irritating. A baby born today has a sun in Scorpio and a moon in Gemini all day.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • You could be more gruff than you realize. You say what you think and do what you say. Be careful, as some people are not used to your forthright style.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • When you’re frustrated, no other sign rivals your ability to become overindulgent. You could be attacking your checkbook, or a partner might be acting as if money grows on trees. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • You come off much stronger and more rigid than you might realize, especially right now.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • You might want to funnel your energy – both negative and positive – into a project. You could be overwhelmed by everything that comes up.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Zero in on what is happening within your immediate circle. A child or loved one could act up out of the blue.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • Pressure builds among those around you. Delivering what you promised remains critical. You have the same expectation of others.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • If you find yourself at an impasse, detach … at least until you can get a variety of perspectives on the situation. You could be careless around machinery.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Realize that you are doing an excellent job of juggling various interests. You understand where a partner is coming from, and you get his or her logic.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Do you really think you can sit on your feelings and put up a front? Somehow your body language and facial expressions will tell on you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Focus on your ability to get a job done. A friend might want to pitch in at the last minute; however, you could be more rigid than you think.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • Remain playful and open with others. You could become frustrated with a friend, or vice versa. Try not to get assertive, fussy and/or critical.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Be sensitive to a family member who might be distressed by the amount of time you spend with an older friend or a respected associate.
