Your Horoscope: Week of Nov. 7-13, 2012
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Nov. 7-13, 2012
This Week: As Mercury retrograde launches into full swing in the sign of Sagittarius Nov. 6, we can expect the unexpected with travel and communications again. Be cautious during travel, back up computers, and check and double check e-mail and voice mail messages for delays or inconsistencies. November will be the month to remember this year, without a doubt. Nov. 13-14 brings a powerful solar eclipse in Scorpio. Hidden influences come to light, and action will be or forced to be taken. This time frame creates a huge change many may want to resist. Remember, though, the most turbulent of changes usually bring the most positive and powerful results in the long run. We may also find this time frame invokes the opportunity for those who are physically stuck on this planet with no quality of life or wellness are provided an exit window out of their worldly physical shell. This I always see as a blessing. It’s terrible to watch anyone or anything suffer.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — A final ending provides closure for you with a long, drawn-out situation that has been kept on life support way too long. Regardless of how you feel about it at the moment, this only provides you with new opportunities in the long run. Watch your temper around the 13th when the ignorance of others has you at your wit’s end. There are more ways than one to outwit your opponent. Use your clever wit and charming smile to bring it all home.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — There is plenty of time to get out and enjoy yourself this weekend. Get your mundane tasks out of the way early on this week, then there will be no excuse not to socialize come week’s end. Long-distance communication reveals some interesting information. Romantic elements run highly charged now as well, as a love from your past will resurface.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — A love from your past resurfaces at this time, creating some confusion within the heart and mind. Financial aspects begin to balance out as well. Legal entanglements are coming to a close, and opportunities to improve the quality of your life are arriving now. A light-haired female has some positive connections. Follow up on leads that are presented to you now. These aspects will begin to take shape and form November-December.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — The bigger picture looks a little cloudy at this time, but trust me, the universe does have a bigger plan for you now. If you pass up those who have not put their fair share of effort into life, don’t feel guilty about it. Everyone is allowed the same opportunities for growth and positive accomplishments. Take a leap of faith now, and grab the brass ring.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Be gentle with those who are fragile around you at this time. Don’t assume their behavior is connected to you — it’s not. Perhaps you could ask them if they need any help or emotional support instead. A little bit of kindness goes a long way. Contacts you are about to make will once again put you on the map and at the top of your chosen profession now. Meetings and promotional events put you at the right place at the right time. Take time out this weekend to entertain friends and family. You’re going to be way too busy to catch up later in the month.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — A final ending to a long-standing problem will arrive shortly. That way, you can move on to bigger and better things now. A loved one may need a little extra emotional support at this time. This will help him or her grow and develop a better place for himself/herself in the long run. Investing time, energy or finances into this individual will pay off large in the long run. Expect the unexpected this weekend.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Try not to overanalyze an emotional encounter that occurred in the past month or so. Let it go, and you will see improvements with this individual shortly. If you pry too hard, your actions may end up backfiring in your face. Your heart and intentions are pure. Go easy into this, and all will turn out well.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — A financial breakthrough is about to arrive. Keep your ear to the ground so you can receive all of the benefits of this aspect. The universe is providing you with plenty of opportunities to improve the quality of your life now. This solar eclipse could bring out the “revenge” energy within your soul. Keep that monster quiet for now. Otherwise, it will cast a negative spin on the positive elements arriving at this time.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Unexpected news from a long-distance source will leave you feeling a bit on edge early this week. Let this sit until you have all of the information available to you, then you will know exactly how to handle this delicate situation. Not everything is on the table quite yet. Mid-December will allow a conclusion to this aspect. Take time out for friends and family this week. Humor is the best medicine.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — A friend or family member may be in some emotional trouble you have not been able to see at this time. Ask if there is anything you can do to help them out. Cleaning, painting or even just taking the garbage out may be all they need to feel as though they are not alone. You may also need to delicately inquire about their health and welfare. Investing some time and energy into this individual will help you learn more about yourself in the end.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — It’s time to clean house, company is coming. Get all of your annoying chores and details out of the way so you can prepare for a giant surge of business and pleasure. November and December are going to be very busy months for you, and you may not feel as though you can come up for air. You will remove old debt and concerns out of the way during this time frame with your bare hands. Make sure you’re taking time out to take care of yourself as well. Connections with the media are highlighted.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You are preparing for a major shift that will begin to occur during the month of December. Your home and business aspects are highlighted. If you can see it in your mind’s eye, you can achieve it here on earth. Do not allow another with a negative, fearful attitude to stand in your way of success. Romance is a focus as well. A second honeymoon-type energy is arriving shortly.
