ARIES (March 21-April 19). You take pleasure in maintaining your friendships. It's not so easy for all your loved ones. Some find it difficult to be social, so it's wonderful that you're willing to reach out and take the initiative.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It's time to expand the social circle again - an effort that will pay off in laughter and fun as well as in the context of business and finance. Plan an event that will allow friends to introduce friends.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The mistake may have been an honest one, but that doesn't change what happened. Try to be logical and methodical as you work out how to make things right.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). What's not advancing in your life is retreating. Chances are, you're fine with this. You can't move everything forward at once. And letting cycles run their natural course is the smart thing to do.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Oddly, what you think is boring will get far less so as you do it repeatedly. Your mind will open to the intricacies. You may even feel that you've glimpsed the magical underpinnings of life itself in this.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). One of something is a choice. Two is an accumulation. Three is a collection. Moving into higher numbers will involve more rules and categorizations. The more organized, the more you can handle.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The ideal way to behave in the situation isn't written in the manners books. Also, a person can be caring and compassionate and still have no idea how to do the right thing. You'll help today.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Flip the problem around in your mind, because the obvious solution may not be the best one. Furthermore, you may get more use from your obstacles than from what is going easily right.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Not one to be cynical or pessimistic, you know to listen to those voices inside that might be nudging you toward an uncomfortable conclusion. This is intuition warning you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When the weather turns cold, the stagnant water freezes long before the running water. To avoid rigidity of mind, body or spirit, keep moving. To avoid rigidity of style, seek new influence.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The problem is like a kinked-up Slinky. In your efforts to handle the twist, things coil into themselves, become even more entangled, until it's a mess. Two choices: Throw it away, or call it art.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You're an integral part of whatever group you join, even if you're new there. Don't underestimate your energy. Your joy is contagious; your curiosity is a stimulant for all around you.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 10). You're changing and so are your wishes. Your efforts to be a better communicator on all levels will lead to astounding luck. A long process will end happily. What you pay forward before the end of the year will change someone's life. A group will progress in part because of your intelligent leadership from within. Cancer and Taurus adore you. Lucky numbers: 45, 7, 12, 22, 15.
