The Phoenix: (Oct. 23 – Nov. 20)
You have been thinking about making a major change for many months. While it is true that a huge transition is on the horizon, you would be in much better condition to make that shift after the first of the year. Meanwhile, begin to close the current cycle.
For All Signs: Most of us will be preoccupied with communication of one form or another. There may be many phone calls, messages, letters, quick conversations, rapid decisions and/or papers to write. The period is favorable for probing into causes and finding the bottom line to any matter. Beware of the tendency to jump to conclusions or acting before all the facts are clear. Avoid blaming anyone.
Aries: The new moon on the 9th represents some new beginning in one or more of the following areas: Organization of debt, reevaluation of investment holdings, attention to resources which you share with others, alimony, child support or activity pertaining to your own estate or that of someone else.
Taurus: You are moving into a new phase that will last through early December. Your attention turns to personal healing, diet or exercise. For some there will be an improvement in the everyday environment at work. A new person may enter your work arena who will be helpful. An exercise buddy may appear.
Gemini: This is an excellent time to discuss topics of depth with your significant other. Circumstances may simply fall easily into place that allow such a conversation. Give attention to new people who enter your life at this time. Someone may open a "right" doorway or point you in a new direction.
Cancer: It is clearly time to let go of an old, critical attitude that has possessed you concerning a neighbor, a roommate or a sibling. What you need to break into freedom is to foster the compassion in yourself. Can you imagine a couple of miles in his or her shoes? Recognize we are all idiots sometimes.
Leo: Emotions concerning home, hearth and family are intense at this time. Something new has entered the situation and you are trying to maintain control, even though that may not be possible at this point. Do not take major reactionary steps. You are not yet seeing the situation in full realistic view.
Virgo: Beware of the tendency to obsess and worry over matters that may never happen. You are tempted to see the world through a dark lens this week, and you may think that is the true version. If there is something you can actually do to make things better, then hop on it. If not, set the issue aside.
Libra: Venus has entered your sign this week and will be traveling "with you" through early December. Her presence gives you an air of poise and beauty, and people will simply like how you look. Often when Venus is prominent we become more interested in art forms.
Sagittarius: You have learned a great deal in the last several years, and you have a desire to teach what you know to others. The opportunity may very well arise this week. Keep in mind your tendency to run the show entirely when you are excited. Give others the opportunity to shine as well.
Capricorn: It is probably time to let one of your business situations flow back into the ethers. You may be "ahead of your time" or "behind the times," but somehow this one is out of sync with today's trends. If it seems to you that some minor tweaking could salvage the situation, by all means begin immediately.
Aquarius: This is not the time to display your work or your goals. You may not be feeling your best, and that makes it hard to present things in the finest possible light. You need some extra rest during this period. Beware the temptation to step into a grand savior role now. People often do not appreciate the effort.
Pisces: There are vampires loose in the world and the Fish tends to attract them. If you have aged a bit, you probably have begun to smell them when they enter your vicinity. Those who have not will be learning soon. It's a required lesson for this sign. Consider the cost to yourself when thinking about taking on someone's sad story.
