The Phoenix: (Oct. 23 - Nov. 20)
It is possible you will be feeling angry or disappointed over a situation with a loved one. No matter how much you want someone to listen to you, sometimes they just have to do what they will. Mechanical objects are not cooperative right now either. This is temporary. There are better things to come.
For All Signs: Mercury, ancient god of communications, turns direct once again on Friday the 17th of Nov. Have patience with the flurry of phone calls and changed appointments that always accompany Mercury's shift in directions. It may be particularly challenging this time because there are no planets in earth signs, so things feel ungrounded. After Mercury begins moving forward it will be easier to progress ahead with plans that have been pending for one reason or another for several weeks. Previously made decisions are also subject to change, so if you experienced a disappointment in the last 3 weeks you might want to give it another try after the 25th.
Aries: This is a time to consider your spiritual purposes. It is all too easy for the Maya, the things of the world, to overwhelm every waking minute, leaving no time for the higher goals. If you notice fatigue, disappointment, or depression at this time, stop. Be still and listen for the Voice deep within that knows what you need.
Taurus: Venus, your ruling planet, enters a favorable sector and will remain there through Dec. 9. This suggests positive influences and opportunities concerning gifts or other financial resources that come your way. The possibility includes investments, debts owed to you, and insurance payoffs. Sexual relationship(s) may pick up energy.
Gemini: There are two arenas of emphasis now. On one hand you are likely contemplating what needs to be done in order to make self improvements. Another focus is to organize your files or daily activities, with a new computer or piece of software.
Cancer: This is a favorable period. Your creative energy is flowing especially well now. Those with children will have cause to feel a sense of pride in their accomplishments or their being. Romance is flourishing. You are probably aware of a sense of heightened enjoyment of life.
Leo: This is a heavy time. Your heart wants to make light and easy, go out and play. But your sense of responsibility keeps you on task. You know if you ignored what must be done that you probably couldn't really enjoy the play. This is a time for deal making with the Taskmaster inside your head.
Virgo: This is a healing time in your relationship(s). You will have the opportunity to be giver or receiver of assistance with another. Activities involving computers or other high tech equipment will be rewarding. Now is the time to try again if you thought you couldn't understand how to do it the first time.
Libra: Your ruling planet is Venus, goddess of love and the arts. "She" moves into a new sector now through Dec. 9. Your attention will be drawn to parties in neighboring areas and with those of your usual environment. Those with siblings may enjoy improved relationship through this period.
Sagittarius: You are supported by a strong inner force of hope at this time. You know you are just about to break through whatever holds you back and run into the bright sunshine. Just knowing this will help you float and also sustain others until the time is right to move forward.
Capricorn: A new plan that originated in late summer is arriving at a turning point. This is a time in which you must decide whether or not to pour more resources into the plan or let it go. Though you would rather not have the problem, you probably will choose to see it through.
Aquarius: This is a challenging time in your career as well as your primary relationship. Sometimes we are pressed to see the flaws, even in those things and people we love the most. You are not at fault in this situation, though you may be looking for what you "could-a/ would-a/, should-a/" done. You did the best you could at the time.
Pisces: Activities involving travel, whether local or long distance, may be obstructed by mechanical difficulties. Have an alternative plan ready. Consequences of past actions may confront you now.
