For Friday, Dec. 7, 2001
Those with birthdays today: Your professional reputation becomes more important than it has in many years past. A key partner or associate helps you increase your status and security. Communication can make or break you this year. If you are single, romance will have a starry-eyed quality. If you are attached, your relationship might be very pleasant and caring, or chaotic and upsetting, depending on your skill-handling issues.
The Stars Show the Kind of Day You'll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
Aries (March 21-April 19)
**** Your family or a close friend backs you. You feel you are coming from a strong experience. Reach out to a problem person at a distance. Tonight: Put up your feet.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
**** Pressure from a partner could be quite irritating, if not difficult. Do what you feel is best for the majority rather than doting on a difficult associate. Tonight: Play the night away.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
*** Family, real estate and domestic matters shake up a relationship. Listen to someone else's perspective. Brainstorm and you will come up with an even better idea or solution. Tonight: Handle the basics.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
**** Your energy sags, though you do manage to finish up all you must. Work with someone on a one-on-one level in order to effectively structure a monetary agreement. Tonight: Talk up a storm with friends over bubblies.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
*** Deal with finances directly. A risk could backfire. New beginnings happen because of ingenuity - not only on the amorous level, but also the creative level. Tonight: Don't do your holiday shopping.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
**** You're personality plus, but a family member or roommate might not be swayed. Creativity stems from your ability to make peace and your ability to allow others to express their ideas. Tonight: Whatever makes you happy.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
*** Kick back. Keep an important conversation with a child or loved one quiet. Tonight: Vanish.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
**** Your friends mean a lot to you. Work meetings become not only networking opportunities, but also a full social occasion. Be careful with the spending. Tonight: Whatever makes you smile.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
*** Your responsibilities could stress you out, when you would rather do other things. Instead of grumbling or pushing through work, put on your pleasant face and do what you have to do. Tonight: Don't worry about the present confusion.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
**** Call a friend rather than acting out on a problem. Relax and know that others are under similar pressure. You're also very sensitive at the moment, as you're not reading a situation clearly. Tonight: Vanish.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
**** Deal with others on a one-on-one level. Have that discussion you have been putting off. Tonight: Go with the flow.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
*** Pressure builds at work. Learn to say "no" to friends and family. Remember your priorities. Tonight: Say "yes" to someone's request.
