Your Horoscope: Week of Nov. 4-10, 2009
This Week: November is the month for big changes and positive improvements. The oppression that we have experienced in the recent past will shift, allowing us to start from scratch and rebuild what has been deteriorating over time. It’s time to send the energy of love and “pro peace,” not “anti-war.” Begin your sentences with “I love” not “I hate.” Words are very powerful tools. What we bring voice to this year can manifest on the physical plane.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—A new form of physical activity becomes “addictive” for you. You are becoming very aware of your body and the messages it sends. You’re leaving behind old, worn-out, energy-draining habits and moving into a new realm. Midweek, there is an offer to take on an additional work project. Although you may feel as though you can’t take on any more, do it anyway. You won’t be disappointed.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)-—Getting together with old friends and loved ones is exactly what the doctor ordered. You may have found yourself stuck in a rut as of late. Now, you need to break up the monotony and do something spontaneous. Friday, some unusual information arrives that may be a bit of a shock. Keep this to yourself until you get the rest of the story.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—Lead by example. It may not be clear now, but you have made a powerful impact on someone younger or weaker than you. You have the ability to offer something to strive for, someone to look up to. Take this assignment seriously. This is a karmic test that you can pass with flying colors.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—Watch your temper this week. Many annoying frustrations have you hanging on by a thread emotionally. Try not to take this out on your loved ones or animals. They are in your life to create a sense of peace and to allow you to feel loved. Try meditation or gentle exercise to alleviate stress. Saturday brings some relief to these overwhelming complications of life. A quiet, humorous evening out appears to glue you back together.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—Romance is very important to you, and strong values are attached to this encounter. As you attempt to process old wounds and mistakes, don’t beat yourself up over the past. Every step we take leads us into the here and now. It makes us who we are today. In other words, regret nothing, and your future will make room for success.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—Ahh, finally, all of those loose ends are beginning to tie up neatly for you. Now, you are able to focus on your long-term goals and ambitions for the future. Many of you have closed yourself off from the social world recently. Fear, frustration and trust issues may have been at the bottom of this behavior. As a result of this, you may have alienated yourself from those who really care. Come out from under your rock now—it’s safe enough to try again.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—The focus is on a small child or animal this week. Changes need to be considered, so there will be room for improvement. Tone down the masculine energy around you. A softer, more sensitive approach will work better for you or your loved ones around you. You may need to be the peace-maker this week in some way, shape or form. Do not add fuel to the fire.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—The heaviness around you begins to lift, and you can see your long-term plans beginning to unfold right before your eyes. In 2010, you will be more sure of your path and purpose than you have ever been possibly in a lifetime. Hit the pavement running, and grab the brass ring. This is your time to reap the benefits of your talents and efforts. Get out of town, even if it’s only for a day. It will do you a world of good.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—You will receive some powerful information this week that you need to keep close to your heart. Although this may be a difficult task for you, you must not share this with others. Instead, begin a plan of exit away from the situation at hand. You do not have room for any more drama in your life. The weekend proves to be a very romantic time where you and your significant other make plans for the future. It appears you are both on the same page.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—A friend or family member may share some alarming news about the emotional welfare of a loved one. It appears they are at the end of their rope, and they feel like they can’t go on. It may be time to sit them down and remind them how much they contribute to the world around them, as well as how much they are loved. A stern, but loving, tone may be needed with this delivery, and you’re just the person to do it.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—A surprise message from far away has you ready to board a plane, train or automobile to arrive at this destination. Pull yourself together, and lay out a plan. You may be needed down the road instead of right this minute. Business is off the charts with activity midweek. Take care that you don’t burn yourself out.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—Romance packs a major punch this week. You’re in a position to pick from two options. Don’t just settle for what may be the easiest aspect. Explore all of your alternatives before making a final decision. Look at this as a lifetime opportunity instead of a quick fix. In the long run, you will be in the right place at the right time.
