HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Nov. 17, 2013: This year you might opt for a conservative course, especially as you often will feel as though you need to defend yourself. You really don’t need to explain where you are coming from, but you will be out of sorts if you feel misunderstood. If single, note a tendency to give too much of yourself as you start to date. If attached, the two of you seesaw back and forth with give-and-take. Gemini makes you laugh. A baby born today has a sun in Scorpio and a moon in Taurus if born before 4:02 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Gemini.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • Even the best-laid plans could go awry in the morning. By late afternoon, you’ll want to sort through someone’s motives.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • You might not be as in control as you thought you’d be. Someone might not be challenging you as much, as this person wants others to notice his or her ideas.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • You might want to deal with something you have not discussed up until now. Choose your confidant with care.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • You could be wondering what to do next and which way to turn. You sense conflicting moods, opposing plans and other such contradictory elements.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • You love being out and about, but steer clear of a situation that triggers any anger. Chill out. Nothing will be gained by having a discussion at this point.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Make calls to those at a distance whom you rarely chat with. You might hear some startling news. A misunderstanding with someone you care about could happen too easily.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Make time for a special person with whom you enjoy lounging around. What starts out as a busy day could become a day of R and R.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • You tend to find others irritating, yet you understand one key person so well that you will refuse to take his or her actions or words personally.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Make it OK to not want to join the crowd. Trust that your choices work for you. You might feel pushed beyond your normal limits.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • You might need to understand exactly what is going on with a love interest. Even if you do not see any changes, spend time with this person.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Check in with an older relative you care a lot about. Your call will be most appreciated. Why not make plans in the near future?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Initiate a conversation with a roommate or family member in the morning. It would be even better if this chat were to happen over a favorite breakfast.
