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)
•••• Whether balancing your checkbook or off playing Santa, deal with your budget. Try a new approach to the holidays, and you could be delighted by the outcome. Someone you look up to is changing in front of your very eyes. Tonight: Treat yourself!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
••••• Establish new groundwork, and be ready to have a long-overdue talk with a partner. Your ability to sort the wheat from the chaff emerges. Reach out for someone at a distance, and you will revive your thinking, at least about the holidays. Tonight: Whatever makes you happy.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
••• Choose to keep your own counsel, even in a talk with a partner. A trip or matter involving someone at a distance takes on new importance. A partner might be changing right in front of your eyes. Tonight: A one-on-one conversation.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
••••• Zero in on what you want. You could be making a big deal out of nothing. Join friends to share in a holiday happening or a simple, fun get-together. Tonight: Zero in on what you want.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
•••• Take a stand and allow more give-and-take between family and a key person in your life. Sometimes you separate the two rather than risk a collision. Give up this behavior; detach and become less controlling. Tonight: Indulge a parent or older relative.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
••••• Reach out for someone at a distance. You might want to rethink holiday plans. Consider a friend who may be alone. Join friends at a concert or movie. You need a break from all that is going on. Tonight: Allow your mind to wander.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
•••• A partner makes it clear that it is time to talk turkey, so to speak. You could be uncomfortable with his or her intensity, but once the talk happens, you'll relax. Realize that the two of you will accomplish more if you work together. Tonight: Make togetherness the theme.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
••••• Others have so many ideas and plans, all you need to do is catch up with them. Spend time at home, perhaps relaxing or getting out your Christmas decor. Just don't push. Tonight: Say yes to an invitation, and let the rest unfold.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
••• You have been postponing a project. After all, there are so many better things to do. Whether you like it or not, the time has come, though you can invite a child or loved one to join you. Re-evaluate your budget from a different perspective. Tonight: Suggest, listen and then decide.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
••••• Let your imagination rock and roll. Your more perky, fun, sensual personality emerges. Join in and get into a game with a child or partner — let the child in you out. Be more spontaneous. Tonight: Let the good times in. Don't worry about tomorrow.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
••• You could be overwhelmed by all the ground you need to cover. Invite family over for an early dinner. A family game takes over. Just let it happen. Tonight: Enjoy the moment. Stay close to the pad.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
••••• Whether you are on the phone, reading the paper, surfing the Net or addressing Christmas cards makes little difference. You are about communication in some form. If a child crosses your path, you might even give him or her a little lecture! Tonight: Just be available.
