Today’s Birthday (Nov. 6).
The more you discover, the more your old stereotypes are threatened. Life doesn’t fit into neat little boxes any longer. It’ll start oozing out beyond the old boundaries. Don’t be alarmed if you feel temporarily out of control. You’ll just be growing.
To get the advantage, check the day’s rating:
10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging.
Aries (March 21-April 19) –
Today is a 5 – You and your partner don’t agree about the best way to proceed. Don’t overpower this person, even though you can. You want change, but it’s important to end up with something that works for both of you. Instead of doing all the talking, listen.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) –
Today is a 6 – Pay attention, take notes, but remain objective. See if you can filter out the speaker’s bias. People don’t usually lie on purpose; they just see things from different points of view. Don’t just go with the person who’s telling you what you want to hear.
Gemini (May 21-June 21) – Today is a 6 – Chat less and work more. Don’t talk specifically about the money. The wheels are already in motion. All you have to do is follow through on a promise. Ignore gossip and rumblings of mutiny, too.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) –
Today is a 7 – You’re rolling along, but there’s a caution flag on the track. Something you say won’t be understood, or something you buy won’t match what you have. Apologize if necessary, and save all the receipts.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) –
Today is a 5 – Heed that little voice in the back of your head that’s always after you to check and double-check. Haste makes waste, especially now. Review information you’ve been given. It’s likely to contain an error.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) –
Today is a 7 – You’re working hard to accomplish a big goal quickly. You’re learning fast, and you’re getting help from your friends. Be careful not to overspend, unless it’s for a very worthy cause.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct 22) –
Today is a 5 – This isn’t the time to argue with the boss or any other authority figure. Be calm, cool and respectful. Explain your position carefully, and don’t be dismayed if you can’t get it across yet. Patience helps.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) –
Today is a 7 – Keep confidential information to yourself just a little longer. Advise a confidant to do the same. If that advice doesn’t make sense now, it will tomorrow.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) –
Today is a 6 – A person you find annoying is doing you a big favor. Listen to advice you don’t want to hear. A friend is apt to accidentally point you in the wrong direction, so pay attention to where you’re going.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) –
Today is a 6 – A misunderstanding could happen quickly. Check with your listener often to make sure that what he or she hears is what you meant to say. Some words have different meanings to different people, especially where money’s concerned. A little extra effort now could save you a bundle.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) –
Today is a 7 – You’re pushing, and with good reason. You can see what needs to be done, although you may not know quite how. You can’t do it all by yourself. You need a strong leader and the support of others. Offer your expertise to the group effort.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) –
Today is a 6 – You’re strong, and you have the support of strong friends. But a slick salesperson could sell you a scheme that won’t work. Don’t go along with the crowd. Do your own research.
