Scorpio The Phoenix (Oct. 23-Nov. 20)
In the recent past your partner has withdrawn to the inside. The communication between you has not been rewarding. This may be another of those weeks. The bottom-line issue has to do with resources. Do not yield to the temptation to rant or you could drive this relationship over the edge.
For All Signs: The overall energy this week is feisty. People in general are expressing opinions with force and are prone to use harsh words and critiques. Drive and handle tools carefully because this is the kind of energy that creates traffic hazards and accidents due to anger. The probability is high that people will be angry, defensive and also wanting to second-guess the election process.
Aries: You are among the most verbal of those who are wanting to express their opinions now. (See lead paragraph.) You are needing a forum and the place of easiest access is probably the Internet. Beware the temptation to rant. The best of verbal warriors is concise and says what is needed without repetition.
Taurus: You and a significant other are beginning to talk about your feelings again. While it is true that you are feeling cautious, at least the channels are widening. Remember the point of this Venus retrograde is for you to gain a more solid grasp of who you are and what you need to give/receive in a relationship.
Gemini: You are more than a little bit happy to allow your partner to take the lead at this time. You seek the same goals and can work together to help them evolve. It is especially important now to talk with others rather than to talk at others. This is how you gain cooperation.
Cancer: You are in a reasonably good place with yourself at this time. Your heart and mind are flowing together. You have no conflict between your feelings and your thoughts about those feelings. This is a time for reflection on important subjects. You can make good decisions now.
Leo: This is a good week for you to take action concerning the sale of property. Increased income is possible through shared resources (gifts, insurance payoffs, partner's resources, savings and stocks). Love life and experiences with children is favored. Look out at the world through kind eyes now.
Virgo: Equipment breakage or software snafus may interfere with your quiet time during this week. Parts of your mind are scattered into so many corners that it is hard to pull everything together. But you know clearly where boundaries need to be drawn and you are not hesitant to do so.
Libra: This is a good time for you to begin a discussion of why you have withdrawn from a relationship to a lover or a child. Make an effort to see the Other through softened eyes in order to keep a bridge open between you. Open your mind to a forgiving attitude. But do not give away your right to dignity and respect.
Sagittarius: Irritability and a tendency to short temper may be your companions this week. Lovers and/or children may easily get on your nerves. This is a good time to work on a solitary project that requires concentration and the use of the large muscles in your body.
Capricorn: You are going through a period in which your talents are on parade. All of the experiences of your life have lead you to this moment. Your physical body may be at a weakened point, so it is important to take unusually good care of it now. A project begun in August-September may look as though it has gone nowhere, but it is gaining momentum in the background.
Aquarius: You are now more able to see who played which role in a controversial issue between you and another. This gives you the option to return to the table with a more realistic assessment of the situation and ideas for the potential compromise as a solution. Wait one more week to be sure you are clear.
Pisces: You have one or more angels behind the scenes during this period. People are saying positive things about you and are offering help, even if you do not know it. Those with secret lovers will be surprised with a gift of beauty. Psychic impressions, along with your ability to provide healing to others is strong.
