SUNDAY, NOV. 1
By HOLIDAY MATHIS
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 1). You no longer need a certain protective armor. A changed relationship with the world transforms old defenses, which you will release into the atmosphere like so many butterflies. Domestic projects bring beauty and good fortune to your daily life, as will improved relationships and new friendships. A fresh revenue stream opens in February. Leo and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 20, 1, 15 and 42.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). We’re taught to look out for red flags, but don’t be so focused there that you miss the green ones. Feeling happy and safe in someone’s company is a major green flag.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It is said that you we train people how to treat us. In that case, it makes no sense to give rewards willy-nilly. Save your rewards for instances when a behavior pleases you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re looking for an intangible thing that you can’t yet describe or define. Perhaps it’s more of a feeling or a concept that’s still in an extremely early form. Yet, you’ll know it when you see it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are surrounded by indulgences; though they are so commonplace you may not see them this way. Easy pleasures are often unrewarding, as a good part of pleasure is feeling you’ve earned it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Things get off-balance rather quickly today, and you’re best to take this as an invitation to return to the basics. What is entirely within your control? Focus there and enjoy immediate improvements.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Conflict happens in good relationships as well as bad ones. A connection doesn’t have to be perfect to be viable. Where there’s love, respect and support, there is also hope.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). What costs little will help much. A smile, a kind look, an extra moment given over to listening to another person — these all fall into that category. You’ll add value to an exchange without losing any.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You pay respect knowing that you will also be respected; however, that’s not the reason you do it. In all things, your personal reasons for following through will be more important than any net result.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Would you rather be bored doing what’s popular or be lonely doing what you like but no one else can relate to? Today’s choices make you appreciate all the times going along with the crowd was genuinely enjoyable.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be in a position to meet many people. The ones you resonate with will be few and far between, but they are out there. You just have to be willing to play the numbers game until you find them.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Loving one person teaches you how to love in general. The lesson never goes away even after the relationship has hit its expiry date. The more you love, the more you know how to love.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There are those who act so cool that you doubt they’d be responsive to trust and encouragement. Give it anyway though, because chances are they need it even more than the others.
MONDAY, NOV. 2
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 2). You’ll connect with experienced teachers and apply what you learn to a moneymaking venture. The new year brings renewed physical energy, and you’ll be emitting powerful vibes, boosting your attraction quotient and drawing desired circumstances, as well as people you weren’t expecting, into your orbit. Gemini and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 30, 1, 12 and 19.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be like a magician today, “effortlessly” pulling off a spectacle. The real magician’s secret isn’t how the trick is done; it’s the fact that it takes over a hundred hours of practice to execute five dazzling minutes.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If there’s one thing to reliably count on, it’s that people will invariably behave in ways you do not prefer. And yet, you still believe that you’ll find the gems, get along and be happy. You’re right about that, too.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your cosmic gift today is a good one — tenacity — through which so much is made possible. The caveat is that you must apply this ferocious drive only to your own projects. It’s too intense an energy to share.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ve a playful, receptive energy for everyone you meet. Because of this, most people soften and open up around you. Spontaneous connections are a reflection of your warmth.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There are no perfect people. Good relationships are about accepting the imperfections of people and appreciating many ways that strengths and weaknesses fit together.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You already know not to go to the grocery on an empty stomach. Likewise, distinguishing want vs. need over the next 10 days is trickier if you hunger and thirst for more life. Stay well-fed on all levels.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There’s a streak of exhibitionism going through the day. You have something important to contribute and the general public will be receptive to it, especially with your entertaining approach.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The soldier doesn’t rush forward to battle without a strategy. The teacher has a lesson plan. The doctor reads a chart. Everyone is doing their prework today, including you. It will take many hours and be worth it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Talk to your team. If you don’t have a team, then start to assemble one. An ingenious plan evolves. Also, when you respect the protocol of organizations, it respects you right back.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Just when you think you’re alone, you realize that, in fact, you are being observed by someone who is assessing how well you might fit a particular role. It’s up to you to make this your business or not.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Small decisions do have a way of rippling out to great effect. One effort that’s worth making is in matters of love and friendship. Whatever you do to keep things fresh and exciting will go a long way.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Seems like much of today’s schedule falls under two categories at once — “potentially boring” and “mandatory attendance.” Don’t let that get you down. A bit of mischief gets tossed in there to perk everyone up.
