If today is your birthday: This year you could keep a lot to yourself. Your friends and family will sense this secrecy, and they will try to draw it out of you. You like your free time alone, more so than in the past. If you are single, you could find yourself in a relationship with someone emotionally unavailable or even married. Be careful. If you are attached, the two of you benefit from taking off together for weekends away. In these situations, romance will bloom. Sagittarius understands you perhaps better than you can imagine.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You might feel as though you have been on vacation. Some of you actually have gone away, or still are away. Do not spoil that relaxed feeling, even if a loved one's unpredictability demands a certain responsiveness. Tonight: Create the mood and setting you want.

This Week: You're on a roll.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Emphasis is on the long term and what is happening behind the scenes. Whether you acknowledge it, you need some downtime just for you. Discomfort with being alone or some of the thoughts that might pass through your mind need to be faced. Tonight: Get some zzz's.

This Week: You might be moping, but come New Year's Eve you'll find a reason to smile.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Listen to news more openly. You like to think of yourself as flexible, but be honest — you can be quite rigid. A friend or loved one could appear unexpectedly. Give up your tenaciousness about maintaining your schedule. Tonight: Go with the flow.

This Week: Celebrate life. By New Year's Day, you could be exhausted.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Visit with an older relative you care about. Do not hem and haw or make excuses. You could be delighted and surprised at what a good time the two of you will have. Know how much your caring means to this person. Tonight: Till the wee hours.

This Week: Get done what you must, so that you can really let go and celebrate.

Aries (March 21-April 19):You have been holding back on planning a day trip or taking off for a few days. Now would be a good time to split. You might hit a few obstacles along the way, but your instinctively quick nature will see a way around this problem. Tonight: Out and about.

This Week: A disagreement could mar much of the week.

Taurus (April 20-May 20):You don't always agree with a partner, and today is no different. You will decide to follow this person on an adventure, even though you might not see the purpose right now. Know that you will see it later, though. You enjoy being with this person. Tonight: Be a follower.

This Week: Deal with a loved one directly. Consider a spontaneous getaway for New Year's.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): You might want to revise a situation to make it more amenable to you. Understand your limits if you do not want to irritate a good friend. Someone you look up to might decide to put in his or her two cents. Tonight: Be spontaneous. Do what you need to do for you.

This Week: Let it all hang out, but be prepared for a reaction.

Cancer (June 21-July 22):Take a hard look at the possibilities right now as you head into the next few days. Many of you will need to squeeze in a week's worth of work in a few days. Others will have a lot to do post-Christmas. Tonight: Make a to-do list for tomorrow.

This Week: Understanding evolves to a new level, if you decide to be docile.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): The past few weeks have been rather regimented with a firm schedule. Take today as a free day, and do what you want. Whether you're playing Scrabble or flirting with a friend, you finally will feel liberated. Tonight: Start thinking about your New Year's resolution.

This Week: Settling in this week will not happen. Don't fight the inevitable.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Understand that you can't dictate what others do. Instead of fighting city hall, why not choose to enjoy the unpredictability that surrounds you? Make sure to squeeze in a nap at some point. Tonight: Choose something relaxing.

This Week: New Year's promotes a greater closeness between you and someone else.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your phone will ring, and your inbox will be swamped with emails. Don't be surprised if someone is knocking at your door, too. You might as well join a friend or take the family out for pizza. You won't be able to concentrate with all the chaos around you. Tonight: Return calls.

This Week: You might decide just to hide out at home this New Year's.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You might have been able to avoid the harsh reality about the holidays before, but now you might be looking at the damages to your checkbook. Redo your budget accordingly. Decide how long you want to feel the squeeze and how tightly. Tonight: Pay bills first.

This Week: Reach out to friends midweek.
