HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012: This year you harness an ethereal quality that keeps emerging from you. You have many ideas, and some of them are great. You also have the ability to be practical in how you manifest these concepts. Originality and practicality, when mixed together, are a close-to-unbeatable combination. If single, someone quite special enters your life. Use care with any type of commitment, as what pleases you now could be very different in a few months. If attached, your sweetie needs to be kept in the loop. It will make all the difference. Capricorn might rain on your parade. A baby born today has a sun in Scorpio and a moon in Capricorn all day.
