For Friday, Nov. 5, 2004. Those with birthdays today: You have the ability to make quite an impression, but you do push too hard at times. Bosses and those who have clout could be easily put off. You need to add a touch more diplomacy to your act. You'll come out a winner with a little more softness. You will gain financially if you are willing to reorganize. If you are single, carefully check out anyone you meet, as you have a tendency to attract people who are unavailable. If you are attached, take off as a romantic twosome more often.
The stars show the kind of day you'll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
- ** You could be put off by someone's strong stand or attitude. Guess what? You're not changing him or her. Do as much as you can from home or head home early. Tonight: Make your home your castle.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
