'Tis the season to be … frantic!

Every year, the Sun’s entry into Sagittarius is when the holiday shopping season shifts into high gear. Who doesn’t love those Black Friday sales? (Well, you know).

This generous and idealistic Fire sign is responsible for the spirit of giving that prevails at this time of year. However, The Archer is also impetuous and prone to overlooking details -- like budgets and credit limits!

How to accent the positive and avoid the negative? Here’s a Sun-sign guide to being a smart shopper this year.

ARIES
You figure you’ll know the perfect gift when you see it. The result? Long fruitless hours of searching and shopping bags full of impulse buys. Draw up a plan and budget before you head to the mall. You’ll save both time and money.

TAURUS
You’re the ultimate savvy shopper, insisting on the highest quality and lowest price possible. You may get so caught up in the thrill of the chase, that you forget the end receiver. Keep them in mind as you snag those bargains.

GEMINI
Your communication skills are your best shopping asset. You know just how to research what a giftee wants and get it at a good price. You have no patience with the shopping experience, though. Online shopping is ideal for you.

CANCER
You take a sentimental approach to gift-giving. And fortunately for you, it really is the thought that counts! So not only are those baked goodies or handcrafted gifts you whip up crowd pleasers, you can save a bundle.

You love luxury and have a generous heart. By now, you’ve learned that can spell a blizzard of bills come January! With some effort you can get thoughtful and appropriate gifts that suit your caviar tastes but have a hamburger price tag.

VIRGO
Analytical and observant, you know exactly what your loved ones want and the best place to find it. Over-planning can work against you, as many of the best sales are last-minute. Hold back and have a little faith that better things are to come.

LIBRA
You have such good taste and a good listener, so you know what your loved ones want. The trouble is, you often doubt your choices and just can’t make up your mind. Rely less on the opinions salespeople and friends, more on your own sound judgement.

SCORPIO
People are usually amazed at how thoughtful your gifts are. You seem to have a sixth sense about what your loved ones want -- and about where to find the best bargains. You only err when you over-think a gift. Tust your instincts and you’ll get it right.

SAGITTARIUS
Start early and budget. You often pay the price for putting off your shopping to the last minute. Result? You’re forced to pay full price or a premium, and the recipient is offended that (once again) the gift comes from the convenience store.

CAPRICORN
Your hobbies are working hard and saving money. If you approach shopping like a job, you’ve got it made! You can be a little stingy sometimes. Open your heart and be a bit more generous when giving and you’ll ultimately be more fulfilled.

AQUARIUS
You love the out-of-the-way shops with rare collectibles or high-tech gadgetry. You can save if you do some comparison shopping and hit the bigger chain stores. Think of all the money you’ll save that could be donated to a good cause!

PISCES
You have an uncanny knack for intuitively finding just the right gift and just the right price. But your compassion makes you easy prey for pushy salespeople. Bring a more assertive friend, if you can, to run interference.
