HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Dec. 1, 2013: This year you will have a new beginning. Not only will your luck be accelerated, especially in the summer and the period thereafter, but your creativity and magnetism also will heighten. Who can say “no” to you? If single, you may be wading through suitors. If attached, a newfound closeness marks your interactions. Be mindful of your sweetie, as you could have a tendency to be unusually me-oriented this year. Sagittarius is a soul mate. A baby born today has a sun in Sagittarius and a moon in Scorpio if born before 10:31 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Sagittarius.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Have you neglected someone because of the recent holiday flurry? Use today to make up for lost time.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • Understand that everyone needs time onstage as the lead actor. Like it or not, a close friend or loved one might steal the scene.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • The issue is one of choices. Do you want to go out, party and play the day away? Or do you want to be practical and start cleaning up from recent festivities?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Your popularity has no effect on your plans, and there is very little you can do about it but adjust. Others mean well.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Understand that there are many ways to approach a situation. Each one has pros and cons. Decide which set of pros and cons works best for you, and move forward.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You can be subtle, but today is not one of those days. Be aware of how critical and abrupt you can be, and as a result your communication will be more effective.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • The good news is that stores still have merchandise on sale, and you could make a point of finishing your holiday shopping.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Understand your options before you decide on any plans. You might just decide to put on some Christmas music and do your own thing.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • You’ll want to deal with different matters than what is being dropped on your plate. Deal with them, as you will want some free time in the next 24 hours.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • Listen to a friend’s set of plans carefully, as there could be a problem. How you express your thoughts could be directly reflected in how they are received.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Be considerate and check in with a friend who might not have had a good few days. You might want to consider including this person in your plans.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Instead of thinking about someone at a distance, why not pick up the phone and say “hello”? That act will mean a lot.
