Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your personal magnetism is likely to draw a congenial other closer with amorous adventures in mind. Stroll down Lovers' Lane but also keep an eye out for lucrative financial openings where you can increase your net worth.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Conflicting signals could put harmonious relationships in jeopardy. Delay agreements until tomorrow, as picky details may become stumbling blocks. Playful bedtime enticements may put a smile on your face.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Actions speak louder than words. Peace and harmony will return if you use simple understanding and kindness. Refrain from making critical remarks or discussing strategies, lest roadblocks be thrown up.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Play "follow the leader." Gratification of your most intense desires is possible under these celestial conditions. However, you will need to take your cue from your partner and be sensitive to his or her needs.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Exquisite pleasure flourishes under these stars, but you may need to guard against those who are pessimistic or controlling. Accept no a few times because eventually the answer will be yes.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Now that a heavy work schedule is behind you, it is possible to grab the tiger by the tail and overcome nagging problems still on your "to do" list. It is easy for singles to find an amorous other under these warm and tender romantic stars.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Passionate twosomes are likely to be in the picture. Put extra effort into relationships and they will pay off in more ways than one. Follow inspirational ideas about finances, which can fatten your wallet.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The pitcher is half-full, not half-empty. Your mind may be preoccupied with obstacles to success, but have faith and remain patient. The more you share with others, the more you will receive in return.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

It is a good day to get things done around the house and share chores with a special someone. Fresh air and sunshine will work wonders on tired egos; the evening promises heavenly delights.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Beat the competition by getting right to the point and using dynamic leadership skills. Money matters flow with ease in the next few days, so strike while the iron is hot. Make room for romantic times with a special someone.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Desires have a way of popping up and interfering with your plans to use someone for your own agenda. You may be able to maneuver others into the required position -- but you aren't hardhearted enough to take unfair advantage.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

If you are up against an opponent, you can win the game by employing your personal charm. Let someone special chase you until you are caught, and then he or she is all yours. Romance is in the stars, so prepare for a pleasure.

IF NOV. 7 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Get your priorities straight now while your energy is at a peak and much can be achieved where business and career are concerned. Your determination and focus could take a back seat to spiritual needs -- especially from January through June, when you are likely to become more reflective and meditative. The year ahead is one in which you will be less competitive and more willing to make small sacrifices to keep the peace. Those tactics could open some important doors in April.
