If today is your birthday: This year you come within reach of many of your dreams, particularly those that pertain to your personal and home life. Be aware that how you come off to others could prevent you from fulfilling these desires. You might want to listen to others’ feedback if you do not see this issue. If you are single, check out a new suitor or admirer with care. This person might not be exactly who you think he or she is. If you are attached, the two of you benefit from taking a vacation together. Scorpio makes a great healer for you.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You are happiest staying close to home, where you can relax. For once, do not assume that you need to go out or touch base with others. Take a day for yourself. You could be surprised at how much you get done when you’re left alone. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.

This Week: You might not feel up to snuff until late Tuesday.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Friends don’t have the same plans as you, but they have the intention of bringing you along with them. There is a festive quality to their plans, whether you end up watching a Christmas play or listening to a holiday concert. Tonight: Where the action is.

This Week: Act on Monday and Tuesday. Lie low the remainder of the week.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Know when to stay in and worry less about plans. Inevitably, you’ll get an unusual amount of calls and invitations. Rather than saying no, you just might prefer to screen your calls. Use care with your finances, as you easily could make a mistake involving a gift. Tonight: Order in.

This Week: Express your ideas by taking charge Monday or Tuesday.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Just follow your sixth sense, and you will know how to handle a situation at a distance. Your instincts give you a heightened sense of awareness. Detach from an emotional situation, and you will know what to do. Be spontaneous. Tonight: Put on some holiday music.

This Week: Push to identify with others. Others admire how you handle yourself.

Aries (March 21-April 19): You are open to others’ feedback, and you’ll wonder what more you can do. You want to bring a friend closer, so start by giving this person more one-on-one attention. You might think you have a creative solution, but it could be just a flight of fancy. Tonight: Add some candlelight.

This Week: Work with a partner directly.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): You have an easy time daydreaming and imagining different scenarios. The problem might be when you have to accept the fact that these dreams are not reality. A creative personality in your life adds zest to the moment. Tonight: Let others make suggestions.

This Week: Listen to the other side.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): You might want to rethink your plans, especially if you promised to go to the movies or a holiday concert with someone. You also could have promised an older person that you’d spend time with him or her. Try not to cancel your plans. Tonight: Could go to the wee hours.

This Week: Others dominate. Don’t even try to take center stage.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Deferring to others could be especially fun. How you say what you need could make all the difference. Don’t worry — you will make the correct choice. Go with the flow. You might want to share a personal secret that involves a friend you are with. Tonight: Fun and games.

This Week: Surprises mark the end results.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Make calls in the morning. How you deal with someone close to you and the manner in which you express yourself could affect a key person. Your ability to get past problems is far more dynamic than others’ ability to do so. Plan on spending the day close to home. Tonight: Be a duo.

This Week: Take charge of your important errands.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Someone who gives you butterflies in your stomach might surprise you with an impromptu visit. You simply feel different around this person. Decide to catch up on others’ news. Visit with a neighbor you don’t see much of anymore. Tonight: Have dinner with several friends.

This Week: Speak your mind, but do not be surprised by adverse reactions.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): How you treat yourself when you’re tired will make all the difference in how you enjoy the holidays. Choose a relaxing activity to help you recharge your battery. Once you are able to kick back, you’ll come up with a dynamic idea. Tonight: Pick up the tab at dinner.

This Week: Discuss a certain gift with a friend if you want feedback.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You are in your element. Perhaps you should grab a child and go ice skating. Some of you are happiest when you give in to a whim involving a loved one. The rule of thumb for today is: If you don’t love it, don’t do it! Tonight: So what if tomorrow is Monday?

This Week: Beam in what you want Monday, then step back and observe.
