Horoscopes (November 5 - 11)

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 20): Don’t be held back by thoughts that keep insisting that you can’t get around whatever the problem is. For someone who came here to light up the world, it’s hard to believe that you could feel flummoxed by any of the things that weaker mortals fall prey to. Don’t be too concerned with trying to prove your worth in situations that involve people who can’t even see you. You know who you are. Too much is about to come to fruition for you to waste time with a bunch of over inflated losers. The law of serendipity is on your side this week; make the most of it.

Taurus (Apr. 21-May 20): The idea that when one thing changes, everything changes, hasn’t been lost on you. Depending on where you’re at, the need to reconstruct the main frame of your life is about rearranging it to suit the way you live now. Recent upsets in the relationship department have made you realize that the cookie cutter thing won’t work any better for you than it does for the rest of us. If you’re not already gone with the wind, finding new ways to do the same old thing could be the name of the game for a while. In rare cases, there may be signs of life heating up in an old lover or flame.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): The treadmill feels like it’s going at warp speed. You are doing an incredible job staying on it, but anyone who knows you can see that you’re at the end of your rope. The competition factor has been huge enough to keep you on your toes putting out your best performance. I don’t know who’s watching the show, but you are right there with whatever the situation requires and ready to be all things to all people. There are times when it’s absolutely necessary to be all things to all people and you do it better than anyone. Keeping up the good work will require more playacting.

Cancer (June 21-July 20): You have so much finesse when it comes to dealing with outer things. Not too many souls make it look this good. At the moment, spectacular issues and events are coming to a boil and you are somehow being carried along in a slipstream of energy that is approximately four years old. There’s a lot to suggest that you have nothing to worry about. The “full circle-ness” of things is evidenced in the fact that you could look back on all of that and feel it approaching the next octave. Stay your course. This is no time to be distracted by anything but your best interests.

Leo (July 21-Aug. 20): You have possibilities that could easily get messed up, or otherwise limited by things that seem to show up every time you decide to make a move. Inner fears from old times have never been clearly dealt with. Those issues are the only thing that stands between you and your fullest expression. Like the rest of us, you too have to reckon with your dark side. The idea that it might rise up and get the best of you isn’t doing you any good. Facing the music, or facing the part of your ego that stands in the way of your growth will invite all kinds of goodness into your life.

Virgo (Aug. 21-Sept. 20): You’re in a situation that is loaded with complications, and for whatever reason you’re in charge of it. This isn’t the first time it’s turned out to be your job to make sure things don’t explode. The fact that they could blow up in your face has helped you to see that you can’t continue to sacrifice yourself on the altar of other people’s stuff and expect to maintain your serenity. Knowing how much you owe people is one thing; going overboard is another. You are at a major tipping point. It may be time to drop the codependent routine and own the fact that you are ready to go it alone.

Libra (Sept. 21-Oct. 20): You put everything into your latest endeavor, and it’s all about to come around. This could turn out to be a good thing for those of you who know how to take care of business. I see all kinds of opportunities to expand your interests in ways that will finally make your life seem like all of this is worth it. Others are intrigued by your progress. If they aren’t saying much it’s because they’re totally blown away or they’re just giving you enough rope to hang yourself. Keep it real and stay clear enough to keep your blind spots from screwing up all of your beautiful plans.

Scorpio (Oct. 21-Nov. 20): Waiting for everyone to figure out how to handle themselves is driving you nuts. If you could relate to this situation without their input you would either be well on your way to what’s next, or it would be over and done. There will be bones to pick with interlopers who have come along to scramble what was going great until they showed up. This is one of those times when you have to be more aware of people’s issues than they are. Having to dance around the fact that more than one person is threatened by you is bound to keep you busy working as a full time chameleon.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21-Dec. 20): Resourcefulness is your strong suit. Coming up with a plan that works will involve finding creative solutions to a situation that is fraught with logistical and financial snafus. Murphy’s Law is hard at work forcing you to call upon your ingenuity, and your faith in the law of serendipity, to spin straw into gold. If there are setbacks, and if others are unwilling to jump in at a time when more than one person is needed to put their shoulder to the wheel, don’t let the idea that you aren’t going to make it squelch the thought that this is what it takes to turn your life around.

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 20): It would be good for you to remember the expression, “He who appears to be in the weakest position is always the strongest.” The power of the weaker force is a concept that doesn’t get enough air time. If you’re in touch with what’s happening to you on the deeper levels you are amazed at how much strength in reserve you’ve been able to call up. You have more going on than most of us. There’s very little that needs to be done. Yes, that sounds like a paradox, but in the midst of chaos, the wise person knows how to stay still enough to see what’s going on.

Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 20): You keep running around, feeding the beast that keeps everything going. In between the demands of your routine deeper questions whisper your name. In some cases the ability to detach has taken you so far away from what’s really going on, it may be time to haul back and beam in on some of the stuff that never seems to go away. It’s not like you don’t know this. Getting to the point where you’re able to reckon with the past is what’s on top of the stack right now. Close relatives are in a bit of a tailspin. It is up to you to decide if it’s your turn to go to their rescue.

Pisces (Feb. 21-Mar. 20): So much has come together you are up to your neck in opportunities. The way things look your faith has been restored to the point where you can finally forgive yourself for being so foolish. If this sounds strange maybe it’s safer to say that you have your own way of doing things and you’ve finally learned to be OK with it. Don’t let other people’s judgments get to you. However you decide to define your craziness, never let yourself go to the place that can’t remember how to love it. Your creative spark is alive. Hopefully you can get off the boat long enough to feed it. mt
