Your Horoscope: Week of Nov. 9-15, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Nov. 9-15, 2011
This Week: The full moon Nov. 10 in sensual Taurus will create quite a stir this week. Emotions that may have fallen asleep in the recent past will be re-awakened. Take this opportunity to express your love and gratitude toward your significant other as well as your family and friends. Even the most dedicated curmudgeon will feel the effects of this sultry and heartfelt time. Mercury Retrograde is right around the corner, Nov. 23-Dec. 13. However, the solar eclipse in sunny Sagittarius Nov. 25 (woo-hoo, my birthday) will balance out any turbulence Mercury can muster.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Going within and ignoring the obvious will not help anyone resolve their personal conflicts. If you are part of the problem, this is a good time to become part of the solution. Extending your loving self and leaving the past behind will achieve mixed results. Eventually, this will sink in and begin to work in your favor.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — News from far away touches your heart deeply. You may feel as though you want to hop on a plane and embrace these aspects personally. The timing may not be entirely perfect, but this will be the start of something that will build in the months to come. All is not lost. In fact, you will be closer to the truth than ever before.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — You feel a sense of relief this week. Finances are beginning to align in a productive way, and your personal life takes a turn for the better. Family squabbles begin to subside as though they never took place to begin with. You’re not sure exactly what the turning point was, but it doesn’t matter now. Let go of the past, and don’t expect trouble to resurface now. Keep the peace.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — There are way too many social activities, and you may feel as though you can’t keep up. This will influence your romantic sector in the best possible light, if you try to meet all of your social obligations. Single Cancers will be in a position to align with the perfect fit for love, while attached Cancers find a deeper level of commitment with their significant other. Pick and choose wisely. Then, go for it.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Take this week to organize your home and prepare for the coming events. Your social calendar will be quite full the next few months, so you don’t want to feel as though you’re behind the eight ball with mundane tasks. Shifts begin to take place with family and friends. You realize who has your back. Emotional support comes from some unusual sources.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Travel plans may be exhausting. Yet, when you finally touch down, you find it was worth all of the upheaval to arrive at your destination. Gatherings with family prove to be enlightening. You learn more about yourself this time than previous encounters. This helps you to find your true self and work with the rough spots you’ve encountered up to this point.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You are coming into a windfall at this time, or a possible opportunity to switch careers. Your financial sector will be worth its weight in gold as we roll into 2012. Make sure you set some money away for a rainy day. Your long-term goals are beginning to take shape and form.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You are in a prime position to get the job of your dreams now. Take the extra steps to ensure you’re the best candidate. You will outshine your competitors, hands down. Romance is definitely improving as well. Changes in residence are evident the first of the year.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Finances and career sectors are blessed. You are in a grand position aligning yourself with the powers that be, upgrading your current affairs. An unexpected windfall will arrive shortly, creating a holiday to remember.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Your romantic aspects are shifting into high gear at this time. Take some time out with your significant other. A little effort in that direction will pay off “big time” in the end. Your sensuality is red hot now. Go for it.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — News you receive this week from family or a friend will help clear up any confusion you may have had about a past event. At the same time, you are learning something about yourself as well. Midweek brings an opportunity to change work responsibilities or environments. Check it out.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You are dying to catch up with a past love or friend from long ago. For some reason, you have not been able to get them out of your mind. This may not be the best time to go into deep conversations with this individual. It’s better to “test the water” first, before you dive into the deep end of these long-lost memories.
