ARIES (March 21-April 19): Work hard, play hard. The cosmic clock is ticking away the hours until your holiday plans begin and the rhythm suits your nature perfectly. Don't confuse people by being vague and don't procrastinate.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Try to share enthusiasms. Maintaining a reserved silence may mislead people into thinking you are cold or uncaring. On the other hand, people might view you as desirable in inappropriate situations.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Shift your gears. The most important thing right now might be home, family, mom and apple pie. Homespun family values may be churned into your consciousness and close to your heart.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Dream big dreams and perform good deeds. A bit of romantic escapism is good for you, and doesn't hurt anyone. Your faith in the universe will reward you and you will find assistance close at hand.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Follow your bliss. You will learn through trial and error that following your heart, and only doing what is really important, is the only true path to happiness. Embrace any opportunity to enhance your standing.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Count your lucky stars. Then count yourself lucky to have a happy and safe nest to fly back to when the day is done. Your fantasies may bear fruit. Cooperation from others is at an all-time high.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Once you know what brings real happiness and joy, you should grasp it close to your heart and hold on. You can see the intricacies of relationships clearly and feel positive about where they are heading.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Strive to be honest with yourself and others. The more information you gather, the more apt you are to discern the truth. You should be filled with contentment with the blessings you have been provided.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Ethics aren't easy. When you resolve to follow the best and wisest path, you stumble upon new contacts that challenge your opinions and make you think long and hard about right and wrong.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Connect the dots. You can figure out how to get where you want to go. There is more clarity about money matters, and you may see where you have made mistakes, but also see how you have done well.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The jury is out on being judgmental. Once you are fully aware of how to peacefully reach a meeting of the minds without anyone losing face, you can enter a new phase of truthful harmony.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A hectic pace doesn't suit your mood. You may be more reflective and seek quieter surroundings. Relationships may be monopolizing your time, but that could be because you are so attractive right now.
IF NOVEMBER 23 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: If you are single, you might be overly anxious to find a true soul mate to fill the void during the next three to four months. If you are paired up in a stable relationship, it could be somewhat unpredictable. Concentrate on doing your own thing and being more independent if you want happiness. Trying to keep things together that are so of sync can wear you out. Luckily, friends or advisers can keep you on the right path - especially in early December and mid-January. January is a good month to make financial decisions.
