Your Horoscope: Week of Oct. 31-Nov. 6, 2012
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Oct. 31-Nov. 6, 2012
This Week: Nov. 6-26 rolls in another fine Mercury retrograde planetary influence. However, this will be the last of it for the year, so it won’t be influencing the rest of our holiday seasons. Take precautions during travel, check and double-check voice messages and e-mails. During this time frame is not the time to set the record straight or attempt to confront someone about a personal issue. Communication tends to get discombobulated during times like these. It’s better to wait until astrological elements like these simmer down a bit. Many of you may find it begins to hit a little earlier than the actual day, so just a fair warning to you. Use this time frame to improve the quality of your life, from inside out.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Your intuition is still playing a very strong role in how you are moving around your current circle. If you just listen instead of talk, you can read what is being said between the lines. You have the solution to a long-standing problem. By week’s end, finances fall magically into place.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Tempers may flare early on this week, so try to keep a level head about you now. Fly under the radar with such activity, especially at work, keeping your nose to the grindstone and avoiding conflicts. You will get your chance to air your views soon enough. Don’t be a tattletale this week.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — A romantic situation may have you spinning midweek. Your sensitive nature could be put to the test by another or a family member’s distress. Avoid trying to fix this aspect until you have all of the facts before you. Miscommunication seems to be running rampant at this time. By week’s end, you have all of the information you need to clear the air properly.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Try to put together a weekend away with friends or your significant other this month if you don’t have time for a full-blown vacation. You need time to revitalize yourself emotionally, spiritually and physically. Stress has been a prominent factor in the way you have been interacting with others. A little R&R will put you back on track.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You may feel as though someone is trying to sabotage your relationships with others this week. Try not to feed into this. Instead, hold your head up high and be proud of your accomplishments, no matter how great or how small they may feel to you now. Let go of the past so there is room for the future. You are entitled to a happy, prosperous life.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — If exchanging energy with others feels like you’re mixing with those from the looney bin this week, you’re not alone. You may be more sensitive to the vibrations of those around you than the average guy. With this comes a tremendous amount of insight and clarity. You will learn how to interact with a difficult person correctly. With that comes peace.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You cannot carry another’s dead weight any farther than you have now, or you’re going to end up suffering physically yourself. Cut the ties, and move on. Protect your inner circle from this insanity. The theme this week is not to go down with the Titanic. That goes for you most of all, Libra. I do not want your loved ones to suffer for your generous heart.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Contact an old friend and make some time to break bread this week. You will be filled with stories that amuse someone who may be a bit down in the dumps. You can be the class clown when you want to be. However, you do hold a tremendous amount of insight for another as well. Your truth and your knowledge hold the key to another’s salvation.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Spiritual contact from the other side will help solve a mystery, as well as a financial dilemma. You have loved ones who are working in your corner, no matter what the rest of the world is up to. Romance and work elements highlight this unusual week. Out of the blue, an unexpected idea or offer of work arrives, placing you at the right place at the right time. Romance flourishes from this exciting new activity. Finances take a major shift for the better. All appears to be on track, at least for you this week, Sag. Enjoy!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Romance could confuse you this week. You may feel hot and cold, then cold and hot. Whatever this is, try not to overreact to it at this time. You will have a clearer cut view of your long-term goals after the 17th of this month. Until then, work activities are in full force, bringing home the bacon for you!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Paranormal activity could be obvious in your home or work environment this week. Meditate and see if you can figure out what this spiritual presence needs from you. If you pay close attention to all of the signs, you will be able to put the puzzle pieces together. It appears as though someone from the other side is trying to help you. Thank them for their support in your prayers.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You are expanding within your work environment, and it is being noticed by the powers that be this week. You will see growth in a positive direction, regardless of what the economy is crying about. Keeping the faith and a fast-moving pace put you a cut above the rest.
