How to Fight Seasonal Affective Disorder
Does someone in your family -- or do you -- suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)? As the days grow shorter and natural light grows ever more dim, here's how your Sun sign can help you remain cheerful through the dark winter months.

Aries can stave off winter's gloom by doubling their efforts to excel at everything they do. They won't give in to inner doubts as they fight back fiercely until spring's arrival.

Being the earthiest of signs, Taurus understands the cycles of nature better than most. They appreciate the benefits of lying low for a few months until the season of growth reappears.

Gemini is prone to falling into depression once the days begin to shorten. They yearn for sunny afternoons when they can run around unimpeded by heavy clothes. They'll want to stock up on good books and a pile of DVDs to see them through winter.

Cancer withdraws into domestic pleasures whenever they feel the least bit threatened by short days and grim weather. They're also comforted when surrounded by their own tribe, so they don't have much of a problem with the change of seasons.

Leo needs sunshine, so they're bound to find themselves down in the dumps if deprived of natural warmth. They should plan an exotic winter break to a sunny destination ... or the very least, watch travel programs that will inspire a brighter mood.

Virgo stocks up on winter supplies so they'll be prepared for the leaner months. Otherwise, they're prone to simply keep their head down as they push toward springtime.

Libra is most sociable on long-lit days, so winter can prompt them to turn anti-social. They'll do well to revamp their wardrobe -- and maybe even plan a few parties -- to keep themselves on an even keel.

Scorpio prefers winter's long nights to the light of day, so they appreciate these months more than any other Sun sign. They'll get themselves organized and relax happily at home all winter long.

Given their adventurous personality, it's no surprise that Sagittarius prefers the warm sunshine. They'll naturally gravitate toward somewhere bright and sunny for a fun winter trip.

Winter's darker months give Capricorn a sense of new life, even on the bleakest of days. They recognize the brighter days ahead with clear vision.

Aquarius isn't the outdoors type, but they do enjoy clear skies. Apart from that, they're fortunate to have a wealth of indoor interests to keep them occupied throughout winter.

Pisces tends to be impressionable, so if those close to them are down, they'll drift down with them. They should stay away from glum friends during winter, and instead look to gain comfort from their favorite music, films and books, as well as from cooking.
