Your Horoscope: Week of Nov. 14-20, 2012
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Nov. 14-20, 2012
This Week: We can all breathe through this midterm Mercury retrograde now, at least for this week anyway. Everyone has adjusted to the wobbly leg syndrome this planetary influence has created for now, at least until it goes direct Nov. 26. Following directly in order of that is the lunar eclipse in Gemini Nov. 28. Eclipses are powerful energy that are designed to become life-course correctors and invoke change, when in Gemini it can aggravate impulsive actions. This time frame can rock relationship sectors as well; however, they don’t have to completely crumble as a result of it. Sometimes, all we need is a little restructuring for a more hopeful, permanent and solid foundation.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Shocking news that arrives midweek may have you rethinking your life and your long-term goals. It’s amazing how short life is and how much ground we can cover when we are put to the test. You will be in a position to help an older female with a dilemma. By week’s end, you will see how much of a positive influence you have become.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — A large gathering of people creates fabulous business opportunities for you in the weeks to come. You’re able to network with those of like mind and heart. You may be collaborating with another on a creative project. Try to explore the visions within and release them out into the real world this winter. You will be amazed at the reaction this creates.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — An annoying neighbor or so-called friend could begin to get on your last nerve this week. It may be time to set a firmer boundary with this individual. They just don’t seem to “get it” on their own. Geminis tend to take everything in, then explode when push comes to shove. Don’t allow this person to get the best of you. They are not the brightest bulb in the box, and are not aware of their own ignorance. The weekend allows time for a getaway. Take advantage of this aspect.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Support the decisions of a loved one this week, especially regarding home and property. They may feel a little nervous about changes, and need you to encourage them forward. Your financial sector is improving with leaps and bounds. Your hard work and determination is finally paying off “big time.” This would be a good time to look at your long-term goals.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Time spent on your own or without the constant aggravation of a nosy neighbor or family member has provided you with some much-needed peace and clarity. You may even come to the realization that their influence adds fuel to the fire of your private life, instead of helping it. Set better boundaries with those who tend to hinder your emotional growth. Midweek provides you with a new business opportunity. Take advantage of this upgrade, and follow through with all of your leads.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — If it feels like you’re going through a grieving process, try not to stifle these feelings. Just allow them to flow and move through your system. This will not continue to plague you forever — it is only a temporary vibration. By week’s end, things begin to lighten up a bit. Friends and loved ones find humor in the strangest ways. This becomes highly contagious, and it definitely lightens the load in the near future.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You’re finally getting back on track financially. Slowly, but surely, you’ve reached your goals and removed restrictions from your life. Your social calender begins to fill up. You’re trying to balance business and pleasure in the weeks to come. Try not to beat yourself up over everything you don’t get done. Focus on what you do accomplish instead.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You may be worried about a female friend or family member this week, and for good reason. A loved one around you feels as though they are slipping into a dark place. You can see this, but you don’t know exactly what to do about it. Count on your spirit guides to give you the right insight. After the full moon eclipse Nov. 28, you will see improvements in all sectors of your life.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Over the past week, you may have felt like you’re wearing a sign on your back that says “kick me.” This is a spiritual test. The message? Stand up for yourself! You don’t have to please all of the people all of the time. The most important thing you need to do now is please yourself. Opportunities pour in for business. Make sure you’re setting time aside for activities that release tension and stress. Good news arrives regarding a legal situation. The weekend provides you with plenty of time to relax and enjoy your surroundings.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — You are very aware of how the past has affected your present state of mind. You have come to the conclusion that you will no longer allow the same pattern to affect the present. This is a huge accomplishment for you. Now, you can receive the benefits of your hard work and efforts without complications. Midweek brings new opportunities for finance. Take advantage of this growth and development.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Things begin to simmer down in the workplace this week. After the past few weeks of overdramatic pressure, this is a welcome sign of relief. This is a good time to consider booking a trip and getting away, or contacting a love interest for an evening on the town. You have had your ears filled with nonsense, and you’re exhausted with it all. Family is on board for a little adventure as well. Humor is the best medicine.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — News from family may start off as a bit of a shock, until you get the full story. Don’t jump to conclusions just yet. Listen and gather all of the information, and then you can come up with a plan to resolve this unusual issue. The weekend may bring some unexpected guests to your home. At first, you may feel a bit annoyed by it, but as this begins to progress, you find yourself surrounded with fun and laughter.
