Your Horoscope: Week of Oct. 26-Nov. 1, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Oct. 26-Nov. 1, 2011
This Week: The new moon in Scorpio Oct. 26-27 provides awareness of our own negativity and teaches us to protect ourselves by releasing bad thoughts and feelings connected with those who may be frustrating us. These aspects always start at the home base first. Sometimes it can be difficult to acknowledge, but the truth of the matter is simple: What we send out comes home to roost. Rise above this thought process. This is a great time to reflect and take stock in what you send out to the universe. Dreams provide messages from the other side — information that can improve the quality of your life. Happy birthday, Austin! Happy Halloween, everyone.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Legal documents or a family matter may become a bit of a pain this week before there is a resolution. Try not to lose your cool; instead, push forward with confidence. If you present yourself within an outstanding light, others will notice you and have your back with a frustrating element. Once you face this head on, the rest will resolve itself in time.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — You may be experiencing the telephone tag game with someone whom you desperately need to get hold of this week. Try not to get too frustrated with this aspect. He or she may be overwhelmed with his or her own personal dramas. Be patient, and allow this to fall into place. By week’s end, everything works out for the best.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Romantic aspects feel as though they have been put on the back burner for now. Try not to draw any big conclusions over this or accuse another of looking in a different direction. These worries will only create more problems in the long run. Career frustrations are at the bottom of it all. Try a little compassion instead.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Stay on top of your voice mail and e-mails this week. You have a business aspect that will fall into place, if you’re paying attention to detail. A conflict with a family member may have you a little bit on edge this week. Try to smooth the feathers of this individual with kindness and affection. A little bit goes a long way.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Get in the Halloween spirit this week and accept invitations for parties and gatherings. Single Leos have the opportunity to embrace a positive love option, while attached Cancers find a little imagination creates excitement on all levels. What appeared to be dead in the water is now alive and well.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Romance is a wonderful way to escape the daily grind this week. You will find those around you very receptive to your flirtatious energy as well as your humor. Soon, you will make a connection for the “dream job” you’ve been wishing for. Be patient and put your best foot forward.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You may feel a little blue the first part of this week — missing friends or family, or just feeling out of the loop. Extend an invitation for lunch or dinner with those who have a humorous outlook on life. You will find this to be the best medicine of all. Forget about your “chores” for a while and work on amusing yourself. You will be back on track in no time.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — It’s back to the grindstone this week, creating a tremendous amount of focus on your career sector. How you perform in the weeks to come will reflect your business outcome for 2011. Put your best foot forward, no matter how worn-out you’re feeling this week. A little effort toward new business provides success in the long run. Expect the unexpected with love this week. You may be pleasantly surprised!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — It’s never too early to align a business venture or a career move. No matter how swamped you feel this week, put your toe in the water of a new business realm. Even though many of these elements will not solidify until after the first of the year, you’re in a great position to make a connection. The stars are in your favor.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — A concern with the health or welfare of a female could have you feeling unsettled this week. You may not know how to approach this delicate situation without causing more alarm. Lend an ear and listen carefully to what is not being said. You will find peace with what you discover as a result of your empathy.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Self-employed or self-contracted financial options will be on the table for discussion. There is balance with this opportunity, and you will feel less fearful concerning cash flow. A personal issue may need to be addressed with a family member. Tread lightly, and you will receive all of the information you need. Then, you will be in a position to solve a long-standing problem.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You will benefit from additional training or workshops becoming available. You may feel your time and energy will not allow you to take on any more responsibilities. However, the fresh energy you receive from these options will radiate outward and become contagious to those around you. By week’s end, you will see a shift with co-workers for the better.
