For Friday, Nov. 2:
This year you are direct and say what you think. Know that you can be open without having to hurt anyone’s feelings, though do be aware that you will need to make a conscious effort. If you are single, your high magnetic energy attracts many potential sweeties. If you are attached, you often might have a row with your partner.
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)
••• You could be more gruff than you realize. Be careful, as some people are not used to your forthright style. Tonight: A force to be dealt with.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
••• When you’re frustrated, no other sign rivals your ability to become overindulgent. You could be attacking your checkbook, or a partner might be acting as if money grows on trees. Tonight: TGIF.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
••••• You come off much stronger and more rigid than you might realize, especially right now. You could hear some sharp words, which might be directed at you but really have nothing to do with you. Tonight: All smiles, beaming into the night.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
••• You might want to funnel your energy — both negative and positive — into a project. You could be overwhelmed by everything that comes up. Tonight: Choose a stressbuster.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
•••• Zero in on what is happening within your immediate circle. A child or loved one could act up out of the blue. Tonight: You are the party!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
••• Pressure builds among those around you. Delivering what you promised remains critical. Tonight: A must appearance.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
•••• If you find yourself at an impasse, detach ... at least until you can get a variety of perspectives on the situation. You could be careless around machinery. Tonight: Go with an unusual invitation.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
•••• Realize that you are doing an excellent job of juggling various interests. You understand where a partner is coming from, and you get his or her logic. Tonight: Go along with a loved one’s suggestion.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
••• Do you really think you can sit on your feelings and put up a front? Somehow your body language and facial expressions will tell on you. Tonight: Remain responsive to a key person in your life.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
•••• A friend or loved one might want to pitch in at the last minute; however, you could be more rigid than you think, and someone else’s style and organization might irritate you. Tonight: Out with a cohort.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
••••• Remain playful and open with others. You could become frustrated with a friend, or vice versa. Tonight: Follow the fun, and make sure there is music.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
•••• Be sensitive to a family member who might be distressed by the amount of time you spend with an older friend or a respected associate. The smart thing is to not get into it with this person — neither of you needs a fight right now. Tonight: Stay close to home.
