Horoscopes for November 9th – November 16th, 2016
March 21 – April 20
Before you go off to whatever’s next it will help you to do whatever it takes to get balanced. The last few weeks have been nuts. With everything shaken up, getting back to your original plan now involves reorganizing things that absolutely have to be adjusted in order for this to work. You’re better at some things than you are at others. Don’t get down on yourself for falling short. Pulling it together where it counts is where it’s at for you right now. Recent rifts don’t need to decimate your friendships. When it comes to that, some time out will give you a chance to settle things.
April 21 – May 20
This may not make sense to everyone else, but don’t let that cast doubt on your plans. The urge to drop everything and go wherever you’ve always wanted to go isn’t just some misguided flight of fancy. Everything in your life has led you to this place. Those closest to you may not seem too enthusiastic, but the truth is, they need it more than you do. Keep the lines of communication open enough to iron out your differences. Before you know it the changes that are impacting you now will unravel every complication and see you vibrating on a whole new wave length.
May 21 – June 20
Getting to the bottom of some of the stuff that’s hitting you now, is bound to involve meeting up with people you’d rather not deal with. It may be more appropriate to make your excuses than it would be to put on a happy face and fake it. Too many other things matter way more than this. At the moment, it comes down to taking care of yourself and getting your bearings after a long round of one thing after another. If you can find a way to bring who you really are into the moment and stop trying so hard to pretend, all of these questions and conflicts might be resolved.
June 21 – July 20
Between one thing and another you’re stretching your limits. Things change on a daily basis. Don’t get too critical of your performance. At times like this the best you can do is remain flexible enough to move back and forth without over analyzing the inconsistencies. Close others are going through their own stuff. Rely on yourself, and be grateful if anyone can focus on you long enough to lend a hand. Adjusting to a whole new set of conditions is all it comes down to. Once you begin to roll with this, what’s next will open your eyes to the best of what’s yet to be.
July 21 – August 20
Believe it or not this experience is forming the ground work for things that you won’t fully comprehend for quite some time. Don’t write it off or wish you were elsewhere. The needs of others have gotten 10 times more complicated than you could imagine. Your role in this situation is pivotal. Biting the bullet and being there for this no matter how impossible it gets is where it’s at right now. What’s next could require a foray into the outer world to take care of what others can’t do for themselves. Stay with it. Keep the faith. It will all be more than worth it in the long run.
August 21–September 20
It isn’t time to get too decisive. All the facts have yet to come in and you’re too overwhelmed to think a whole lot about the wave of change that’s washing over your life. Recent disillusionments have totally flattened you. Resurrecting your enthusiasm for anything could take a miracle. At times like this it’s OK to retreat into your work as long as you make sure your down time is filled with whatever you need to recuperate. Things could feel tense, or tighter than usual. Get in touch with your resistance and exchange it for whatever it takes to want to start over again.
September 21 – October 20
Maybe you are having second thoughts about things that seemed to be flowing smoothly. Your Sixth Sense is telling you to wait and see. As you keep running solutions to your situation around in your head, you try as hard as you can to figure out where they lie. So much of what has been hard up till now is sitting in the cross hairs of change. At a bend in the river everything heads North or South. Your choices matter more than ever. The deeper part of you knows this. Keep your feet on the ground and continue to explore the wealth of possibilities that await you in the distance.
October 21 – November 20
So far so good. This isn’t exactly what you had in mind, but you’re willing to see how it plays out. Others are showing up with too much, or too little—and you’re not interested in playing games. With no chance of making your influence felt, in the shadow of overpowering influences and out of control emotions, you’d do well to retreat until the coast is clear enough to warrant taking another run at this. In the mean time there is more to life than this and thank God for that. New projects and people are about to show up and take you to a much more fulfilling place.
November 21 – December 20
You’ll get through this. The hard part is usually the place where we get the lesson, so figure out how to relax about whatever putting your shoulder to the wheel might involve. Nobody but you is going to come to your rescue. Once you wake up to the fact that you have multiple options, everything will begin to seem more doable. As far as your relationships are concerned? Don’t let anyone tell you what to do. They don’t have to live your life and they have no idea what it’s taken for you to get this far. Be patient with their good intentions and keep doing your own thing.
December 21 – January 20
It’s time to think creatively. You won’t get to the bottom of this with whatever’s in the textbook. All of us are little snowflakes, so kick your standards out the door and get focused on the uniqueness of your circumstances. In some cases, what you’re dealing with is a rebirth, or an emergence that is not subject to customary guidelines. As you get closer to making this work your relationships are bound to change. Releasing yourself from people and things that hold you back is the key to what’s next. Your fear of the unknown is what stands between you and your Self.
January 21 – February 20
It’s good that you’re getting better at sticking to your guns. Those who have a tough time taking ‘No’ for an answer are just as good at pressing their case. You need to stay sharp when it comes to their efforts to control you. Your work is where 90% of your attention needs to go. The other 10% belongs to you. The reasons for this vary from person to person. In most cases it comes down to the career area and your ‘interior castle’ needing to mesh fully and completely. What people need from you is their business. For the time being they will have to get it from themselves.
February 21 – March 20
You have an amazing ability to get things to work when nothing else works. In the middle of a never-ending story you are hanging in there. The next few months promise to bring more of the same. Degrees of frustration fluctuate. You need to understand that this is one of those come to Jesus moments that isn’t subject to normal rules and procedures. The desire to cut through the BS competes with the need to look at it. You are going through the fire. There are no instructions here. The only constant in situations like this is love, and the extent to which you keep the faith.
