HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, Nov. 23, 2018:

This year you make waves when others least expect it. Aim for getting more of what you want. Be willing to discuss your goals, and you will take the first step toward making them a reality. You have what it takes. If you are single, you easily will meet someone who piques your interest. It is worth being patient and waiting for the right person. If you are attached, the two of you open up to new possibilities. You two sometimes disagree about a long-term desire, but ultimately you will find a meeting point. PISCES can be very confrontational.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You might feel strange when a person compliments you. Perhaps the comment seems unauthentic or inappropriate in some way. Let it go. Take some downtime, even if it is just an hour or two. You need an outlet for your many ideas. Tonight: Time to do your thing.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Friends will bound in and out of your door. You could find the pace to be rather hectic and chaotic. Your fatigue might become quite evident. A new beginning becomes possible because of the people around you. Tonight: Approach a work-related matter carefully.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Take a stand. A take-charge attitude could backfire if you are not careful. A partner might need to speak with you in private. Don't worry so much; everything will work out fine. An associate is likely to give you an earful. Maintain a sense of humor. Tonight: Till the wee hours.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Don't make demands at the present moment. Defer to a loved one. As a result, a new beginning becomes possible. You'll accomplish a lot if you choose to concentrate on one item at a time. Schedule some time with a family member. Tonight: Consider a visit in the near future.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

A loved one might decide to pull the wool over your eyes. Be aware of being naive or too trusting, as it will make you an easy target. Brainstorm with a friend or family member to come up with great weekend plans. Tonight: You might not have a choice.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Others seek you out. Though you'll be flattered, you might feel overwhelmed by everything that is happening around you. A friend could be demanding, but choose not to worry so much. Stay centered, and don't let this get to you. Tonight: Say "yes" to an invitation.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You could be overwhelmed by everything you think you have to do. Communication flourishes, even if you aren't in the mood to talk. You have a lot to complete and would prefer not to be distracted. Listen to your sixth sense for guidance. Tonight: Hang out with friends.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might choose not to share all your ideas at the present moment. Try to isolate yourself from others, and don't scatter yourself in every direction. Use care with your spending, as you easily could go overboard. Tonight: Time to let your inner child run the show.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Stay close to home, even though this might not feel natural for you, as it will feel better than being out and about. Curb your spending as much as possible, and you will be a lot happier. When you are relaxed, you tend to be a great source of ideas. Tonight: Order in.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Clear communication will settle any potential differences of opinion. You might want to find out what is going on. You'll discover that someone else has even more ideas than you do. Your responses in a discussion will be intuitive. Tonight: Meet a friend at a new spot.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Friendship is always important to you, but be aware of a change of pace. A friend is likely to share a lot more than he or she has in a long time. A partner will help you see the big picture. Express your appreciation for his or her support. Tonight: Make it your treat.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might feel as if nearly any choice you make is the right one. When looking at all your different options, you'll see validity in each one, which could make it more difficult to decide. Know that this confusion isn't likely to last long. Tonight: Where your friends are.
