Nov. 6 Birthday: Get yourself a good lawyer, because a significant contract having to do with your work or career might be offered you in the next year, and you’ll need someone sharp to read the fine print. Things could become interesting and constructive.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22): A large dose of common sense will help filter out useless information and needless filler. This asset will help you immensely in dealing with certain personal affairs.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21): As long as you are not merely being a dreamer, honest intuition could serve you well in both a financial matter and a personal issue. Your hunches could be keener than usual.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Open up a frank discussion on a dilemma that is troubling both you and several close friends. Only an honest exchange of who said what can resolve a problem that has sprung up.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19): It’s one of those days when one is tempted to try to force round pegs into square holes, so try to keep your head screwed on straight. Then, and only then, will you be able to handle things capably.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20): Several friends who understand your ambitions and fears are likely to have some sage advice to offer. Don’t take it as a put-down; none of us has all the answers.
Aries (March 21-April 19): Those who make the best salespeople are usually the easiest to sell, which could be the case for you. Try to make sure all great sales pitches are being made by you, not to you.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): As long as you don’t pretend to know more about a matter than you actually do, you can have a good meeting of the minds with another on an important issue. If not, you lose.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): This can be a better than usual day to accomplish tasks that require two people to handle, assuming each is competent. Team up with someone you know works well with you.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Any commitment you make will be strong in both the spirit and the letter; thus you’re the one most will come to for help. People know they can count on you to do what say you will.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): A nosy neighbor who is interested in everybody’s business will need to be held at arm’s length, because if this person is given free rein, you can take bets s/he will meddle.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Make sure you have your cell phone with you at all times, because an important message is on its way that you won’t want to miss. It could mean the difference between success and failure.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Surprise developments are afoot concerning the recovery of something you thought was lost forever. The lesson here is to never give up on what is important, regardless of appearances.
