Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012: This year you often feel challenged by others. As a result, you are unusually verbal and frequently get into heated discussions.

Make plenty of time for social activities as well. If you are attached, the two of you will experience an easier year than in the recent past. You will revitalize your bond through sharing more. GEMINI is even more verbal than you are!
