Our household is evenly split between night owls and early birds. While our daughter and her dad are perfectly happy to push bedtime back so the evening doesn't end, our son puts himself in bed at 9 p.m. whether we tell him to or not, and I'm usually not too far behind. After we turn the clocks back on Sunday, Nov. 4, our night stalkers are going to have some rough mornings, but my son and I will probably be fine... perhaps because our zodiac signs can deal with Daylight Saving Time better than others. Lucky for us, Jake and I occupy two of the three astrological houses associated with early risers.
Of course, even with my inherent astrologically-given gift for being a morning person, it's still going to be weird having that extra hour for a few days. Jake and I tend to lurk like ghouls until our internal clocks adjust, which isn't fun, but my husband and daughter will simply lose the extra time somewhere, which is worse. (I know I'm going to witness our daughter lost in thought at least once while tying her shoes, and I'm going to plan on driving her to school at least once during the week after DST, because she's definitely going to miss the bus). As for me? Because I'm an Aries, I'll be even brighter and shinier and more accomplished at 7:30 a.m. than I usually am. And if you're one of the following signs known for producing morning people, you should be just fine, too.
