Today’s Birthday (Nov. 8).
You can expect a lot of discussion this year, along with some resistance to your authority. This isn’t necessarily bad. You’ll fine-tune the skill of getting along with others – and, of course, the skill of teaching them how to get along with you.
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 7 – You’re a straightforward, honest person. With you, what people see is what they get. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a private side. Right now, love and money both fit into that category. You can be confident and successful without telling everybody how you do it.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) –
Today is a 5 – Don’t expect much progress until later tomorrow. You’re locked in negotiations. Your partner, mate or main adversary is very persuasive. Are you going to be swayed by this person’s argument? Only if it’s to your ultimate advantage. You be the judge.
Gemini (May 21-June 21) –
Today is a 6 – OK, now it’s time to really get serious. You may not get far, though. If the best you can do is to keep somebody from running all over you, that’s good enough. Tonight, stay close to home. There’s work to be done.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) –
Today is a 7 – Love is plentiful, but money is temporarily scarce. Put your heads together and come up with a plan. Doing without isn’t so bad when you’re doing it together.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) –
Today is a 6 – Home is where your heart is tonight, and that’s where your body should be, too. That may require a slight modification to your schedule, but it’s worth the effort. Tell the boss you can’t work late. You have more important things to do.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) –
Today is a 7 – An insider tip could help you find the perfect thing for your home. If it gives you the look you want, go for it, even if it means going without something else. Make a change for the better.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct 22) –
Today is a 6 – Be careful about what you say for the next few weeks. Let business take top priority. Learn to be a strategist. This could cramp your style socially for a while, but your friends will understand.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) –
Today is a 7 – You’re getting stronger, smarter and cuter. Not everyone agrees with you yet, but don’t let that slow you down. Don’t holler to convince them. You’ll win more votes with your smile.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) –
Today is a 7 – Conditions are changing again. Although you’re exuberant and enthusiastic, it’s best not to gloat. Keep recent victories to yourself, and start planning your next move.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) –
Today is a 7 – Your friends mean the world to you, even though you rarely say so. One of them will need a favor soon. It’s a chance to show your appreciation and your love.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) –
Today is a 6 – You’ll have to hold off for a little while longer. There’ll be too much opposition to your suggestions. Instead of feeling squashed, take notes. If you address those issues, the opposition will dissolve.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) –
Today is a 7 – Your attention turns to a new idea or a very attractive person. The two may even be linked. But something is in the way. You can’t get together yet. Actually, tomorrow’s better anyway. For now concentrate on your work.
