Horoscope for November 2, 2011

By Bernice Bede Osol

You can enhance your ability to overcome most challenges and adversities in the year ahead by maintaining a positive attitude as often as possible. Doing so will substantially strengthen your ability to get things done.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- It might be smart to yield a little on some minor issues in order to avoid locking horns with a family member over a big matter. Give a little to get quite a bit.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Because of your reluctance to be forthright about what is bothering you, many of your companions will find you difficult to understand and tolerate. Loosen up a bit.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Frivolous activities that don't make any kind of contribution to your material or social well-being shouldn't be given a whole lot of your time. Don't make trouble for yourself.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Your self-image and reputation could suffer greatly if you fail to keep your temper in check, especially when you're around people you like and respect. Control your ire and you control your image.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If you insist upon dwelling on negatives, you'll elude all possibility of having any success. It's important to strive to be a positive thinker as much and as often as you can.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Keep your snoot out of a friend's business if you see that she or he is unwilling to share something with you. Everyone is entitled to privacy when they feel it's warranted.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're in for a big surprise if you think inflexibility will enhance your negotiating skills. All it will do is cause people to turn their backs on you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- There's nothing to be gained by spreading yourself too thin where your work is concerned. It will gain you a lot of needless frustration when you can't complete all that you want to.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Trying to con a co-worker into doing a job your way will turn into a frustrating experience. If you want things done well, let your colleague call the shots.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Unless you think your way through every step of the day, your gains will be slimmer than a fashion model. If you do things in a haphazard manner, your fragile arrangements will crumble like a misbegotten cookie.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You had better stay focused on your endeavors because if you don't, chances are you will make a serious mistake that could require a total, and very expensive, makeover.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If you intend to go window-shopping at the mall, you'd be smart to leave your credit cards at home. Your resolve to maintain your budget will be weaker than a wet noodle.
