November 5 – 11, 2014


For All Signs: Yesterday was a mid-term Election Day in this country. Aspects this week through next are rebellious to outright violent. No matter what occurs in the US after this election, people will react with anger. Mars is tangling with the Pluto/Uranus square worldwide, so the torque of tension is tightened globally. Those with an ounce of power will be using it to serve their personal good, but believing it is the Good of All. This is not just “global”. It comes right down to parents and children, police officers, corporate leaders, and business groups. On a personal level, we must work to remain conscious of how we are using the power in our lives, lest we misuse it and create damage in the process.

Aries: Whatever is occurring in your life during Nov. is clearly intense and emotion-laden. You may feel as though your very life depends upon making your point of view heard and acknowledged. It is important to play your personal political cards carefully. Don’t attempt a takeover unless you are prepared for a serious pushback.

Taurus: From now through next week your attitude may be somber. Perhaps you are thinking about your primary relationship and what could be done to improve it. Usually this comes from something going wrong between you. We need to experience such times so that we can make necessary corrections in our thinking.

Gemini: This is the week for a romantic venture. You would be happy to take the first flight to Tahiti and never bat an eye over it. You want to think artistically. You may be focused on the opera or the ballet. Music may really strike your chords right now, or books that tickle your romantic bones.

Cancer: We are nearly beyond the recent eclipse season. You may be relieved to know that your emotional waves are likely to rebalance and the waters will be smooth again. The full Moon in Taurus may bring illumination to you in the areas of children and friendships.

Leo: Your world seems demanding and maybe even overwhelming. Don’t allow this Maya to interfere with your appreciation of the healing of your heart. An old ache or painful experience is being soothed, probably by a member of your family.

Virgo: After the weekend circumstances may be right to share soulful thoughts with your partner. Somehow it seems “safer” than it might at other times. He/she is more receptive and you become more open and softer in your approach. You may be taking small mental breaks this week, with lots of daydreaming and drifting. Sometimes we just need these rests.

Libra: This week you may need to take care of yourself financially and avoid overspending. The same holds true for all the goodies in life, such as sugar. At this time it is just too easy to break training. If you mean what you've promised to yourself, don't go anywhere in which you would be in harm's way.

Scorpio: This is a very active period for you. Your reflexes may be off. Take care with driving and also with your mouth. Concentrate on thinking before you speak, especially if you feel angry. Remember that you have shot your mouth off at others before and lived to regret it.

Sagittarius: This is a week in which you are probing, researching, or looking for information. You may experience a “Eureka!” event on the weekend. Travel is highly probable, even if it is limited to the Internet. You are looking for facts that will help you identify the big picture view.

Capricorn: Listen to the important people in your life who comment upon what you are doing. You have significant power now and could readily run over those you care about like a steam roller. Allow the “other” equal space or there will be payback time later when the power is on the other side.

Aquarius: You are moving into a rough patch with significant others. You might be inclined toward critical thinking of others, but it is more useful to take a good look at yourself first. Are you provoking misbehavior from the “other”? It is possible that you are withdrawing, which causes others to grasp for you.

Pisces: This period may be difficult for those on a diet or other self-improvement program. You are prone to self-indulgence right now. Perhaps the best thing to do is accept that is so and find a new solution that is satisfying without sabotaging your good intentions.
