If all else fails, talking things out will help. Whether you're involved in an innocent fender bender or you're a bystander in some work snafu, your excellent communication skills will go a long way toward easing tensions. Hopefully, you can solve the real problem altogether. You have a lot more influence over the attitudes of others than you may realize. Use your famous diplomacy and see what happens. You might be surprised how it inspires people to come to an agreement.
Fanciful ideas and romantic wishes have been blooming inside your head. They're all so pretty, and it's a waste that no one sees them but you. Today, the time is right to share them with a person who loves you the most. They really want to know more about what makes you tick, and they can tell that you've been working on something in your mind. Give them a glimpse of what you're thinking and their reaction will delight you and bring you closer together.
Reach outside of your comfort zone to find something new in your life. Talk to people who you wouldn't typically talk to and see what they have to say. Go somewhere you've never been. These visits to the outside realm will intrigue you and change you. It might even change your mind about something. You have to be open to that possibility. A leopard may never change its spots, but you're no leopard. You are a wise, courageous person!
If you have a regular exercise routine, try to mix it up a bit today. Mundane physical exertion will do more to hinder your good energy levels than improve them. If you don't have any sort of regular routine, you definitely need to start one. Even if it's something small like taking a walk in the evening, or walking up the stairs instead of taking an elevator, it will make a big difference in your energy and your attitude today.
Things are not going very smoothly for someone in your life who always seems to have the world on a string, and it may throw you for a loop. Suddenly, the person you looked to as an example of how to behave no longer exists! What to do? After you recover from the shock, take some notes because this is a wonderful learning opportunity. It's time to be your own best example and stop modeling yourself after people you think you want to be like.
You're known for your great advice, but at least one of your people is in a situation they may be too embarrassed to talk to you about. Put out some feelers today. Send a few probing messages and find out what's up with everyone in your inner circle. You might be able to pull a shy someone out of their shell. Listening skills will come in handy in all sorts of places today, giving you a wonderful excuse to poke your nose into other people's business!
Your bright attitude is more powerful than you imagine, especially today. If a dour person holds the key to a place you want to explore or information you need, turn on the charm. Look at the situation optimistically and you might get exactly what you want. You have to harness the power of positive thinking, though, because focusing on what could go wrong or what isn't fair will only make you grumpy, and no one wants to hang out with someone who's grumpy!
Full of mysterious clues and confusing comments, this day could bring out the amateur sleuth in you. Follow your instincts and poke around in a few places until your curiosity is satisfied. You'll have a fun time figuring things out and detecting the patterns in someone's unusual behavior. Be up front about your findings and you'll spark a very interesting conversation. While the answer to the mystery might not be earth-shattering, the process of finding it will create an adventurous day.
Being out in the natural world is the right way to rejuvenate yourself, get a new perspective on where you're going, and find a new friendship right now. Visual beauty brings another level of joy, so take a long walk in a flower garden, on a beach, or in some other environment you find inspirational. As long as you have fresh air, sunlight, and the sounds of nature around you, you will get the dose of contemplation you need right now.
The amount of romance in your life is about to go up, up, up! The sky's the limit when it comes to the chemistry between you and a very special someone. Most of the explanation can be found in your brimming confidence. People are attracted to those who have a strong sense of self. Your creativity is also a big turn-on, so use it to convey your feelings in an unexpected and very flattering way. This is a period of new beginnings and exciting conversations.
When it comes to your finances, you can't let your reputation come before your bank account. If you're afraid of being called cheap, you need to get over it. The people who toss those terms around are the same people who are deep in debt, so what do they know about money matters? Being thriftier will help you increase your cash flow and decrease your stress level, so draw up a tighter budget and ignore what people say about your spending habits.
The company you keep says a lot about who you are, and that fact is more important than ever right now. New folks can be entertaining, but be sure you totally understand their motivations before inviting them into your inner circle. Trust is something to be earned, not given away freely. Resist the urge to abandon your standards in an attempt to fit into someone else's world. Your future is something only you can control, and it's a 24/7 job.
Make a big splash as the week begins! Monday is an excellent day for pioneering ideas and activities, and all eyes are on you as you forge a new path. On Tuesday and Wednesday, count on your ambition and enthusiasm to drive you ahead, and don't get too preoccupied with how your actions might be taken by others. You just need to focus on getting things done. Thursday and Friday are likewise great days for action and advancement, but that focus will shift slightly to include getting help from (giving help to) other like-minded people. That karmic trend continues into the weekend, and you can help yourself best by helping others.
You might have a hard time trusting others on Monday, and you should pay heed to that hesitance. Risks right now probably won't pay off, and you need watch out for your own priorities. On Tuesday and Wednesday, make people plans. You'll be energized by socializing, and you'll learn a lot by mixing up ideas and activities with like-minded people. On Thursday and Friday, forge ahead on your own plans and don't get distracted -- especially by anyone who's just looking to get a rise out of you for their own entertainment. This weekend, don't go solo. You'll have the best time if you can team up with friends -- and the crazier your plans, the better.
You just can't beat teamwork, at least not on Monday. You'll get the most done (and have the most fun) if you can partner up with others and work towards a common goal. On Tuesday and Wednesday, though, those alliances could become troubled (maybe someone else is trying to take charge?), and you might have trouble making sense of someone's agenda. On Thursday and Friday, expect an unusual influence -- probably from a conversation with someone charismatic. You'll see things differently and could be inspired to take radical action. This weekend, focus on the big picture and your own creativity, and don't fret just because things aren't crystal clear.
Do something for yourself on Monday! You've done enough for others lately, and you deserve some healthy self-indulgence -- especially if it involves some quiet time to yourself. On Tuesday and Wednesday, expect that introverted trend to continue. Work things out on your own rather than looking for help, and strive to strike a balance between ideas competing in your head. On Thursday and Friday, your thoughts will drift to money and material possessions. Take advantage of this financial finickiness to reassess your budget and set some logical goals. This weekend, harness an unusual burst of energy and intuition to make deep connections with the people you care about.
Romance is on the rise on Monday! You're full of fire and flirtatiousness as the week begins, and your energy knows no bounds -- expect others (naturally) to fall smitten at your feet. That confidence and charisma continues into Tuesday and Wednesday, and you'll have the drive to get what you want, provided you're willing to help others get what they want, too. On Thursday and Friday, beware of potential conflicts and clashes. Your ego could get the better of you right now, and you may need to let go rather than cling too tightly. On Saturday and Sunday, avoid any interaction involving money. This time is better spent making art and getting in touch with your instincts.
You'll want to rush ahead on Monday, but you can't. Obligations and obstacles block your way as the week begins, and you'll need to just go with the flow. On Tuesday and Wednesday, all that hard work and planning you did will finally pay off. Your ambitions will be satisfied right now -- in your work and maybe even in your love life. On Thursday and Friday, you might need to take a new approach. Keep an open mind and consider conducting an unusual experiment. This weekend, you'll need to make peace with other people's pace -- no amount of heckling will hurry them up.
You can communicate with unusual quickness and clarity as the week begins. Use your excellent articulation to explore big ideas and let others know what you're really thinking. On Tuesday and Wednesday, you'll feel the depressing pressure of old problems and issues, but don't give into that maudlin mood -- you're too affable and easygoing for such self-indulgent whining. On Thursday and Friday, it's time to take on something (or someone) new. Variety will spice up your state of mind, and that novelty could even bring some romance along with it. This weekend, look for harmony and beauty in life's little things -- and share your perspective with someone else.
Go on and get up caught up in the moment on Monday! Your week begins with an overdue surge of impulsiveness -- although beware that someone influential might encourage you to take a clearly unreasonable risk. (Find the balance between being brave and being foolhardy.) On Tuesday and Wednesday, hit up the boss (or some other authority figure) to get what you want. Opportunities have finally aligned themselves to match your ambitions, and you need to strike while the iron is hot. On Thursday and Friday, harmony in your home could be threatened by unexpected outbursts. Keep a cool head and find creative ways to calm the conflict. This weekend, indulge your imagination and playfulness.
It's a red-letter Monday! Ah, if only all your weeks could start out this way. All your best qualities -- your playfulness, optimism and good-natured charm -- are doubled for the day. People, predictably, just can't stay away from you. On Tuesday and Wednesday, you might find yourself feeling a little more conservative. Satisfy this unusual obsession with details and penny pinching by dreaming up original ways to save (like packing your own gourmet lunch). Thursday and Friday are both great days for trying new things and meeting new people. Explore with creativity and confidence. This weekend, you can accomplish a lot (mentally, at least) by just staying in bed and daydreaming.
Anything is possible on Monday with a little perseverance. You just need to dig in and stick to your plans to make things happen as the week begins. On Tuesday and Wednesday, your amazing proficiency for planning continues to save the day, and others will be impressed and amazed by how much you're able to get done. On Thursday and Friday, you might want to switch things up a little -- try some spontaneous solutions and ad hoc approaches to the problems at hand. This weekend, make close connections with others. Use your charm and creativity to communicate clearly.
Find a common cause on Monday. You'll do your best work -- and have the most fun, too! -- if you can connect with others who want the same things you do. On Tuesday and Wednesday, you'll need to buckle down a little if you're hoping to make the same progress. That rebel spirit of yours has you champing at the bit, but fighting the flow will only leave you feeling worn out. On Thursday and Friday, a big boost of energy and inspiration will instigate a change. You've got a radical new take on things, and others want to hear your vision. This weekend, put yourself first and don't let anybody else get you sidetracked.
Luck is on your side on Monday! Fortune favors you as the week begins, provided you're smart and attentive about how you press your advantage. (One tip: Just be sure to think before you speak.) On Tuesday and Wednesday, lead the way. Others will look to you to guide the group, and you'll have no problem picking the proper path. On Thursday and Friday, you'll want to help everyone you meet -- and you just might be able to pull it off. Remember that all you need to do sometimes is point people in the direction of what they need. This weekend, indulge yourself. The more lavish the activity, the better.

The brilliant sun enters fun-loving fellow fire sign Sagittarius on the twenty-first, lighting up your world with the excitement youâve been trying to capture in unhealthy ways lately.

The sun partners with exciting fire sign Sagittarius for a month starting on November 21, at which point you might turn into an adrenaline junkie.

Love gets complicated when gentle ruler Venus is paired with intense Scorpio, also starting on the twenty-first.

Chatty Mercury, your leader, finally comes out of its retrograde cycle while in Libra on November 3. Youâve felt like youâve had a gag on lately, and you canât wait to take it off and start communicating again. Itâs so nice to finally say everything thatâs been on your mind!
Mercury then forms a quick square to serious Saturn in Capricorn on the sixth, bringing harsh opinions and rigid thinking that you arenât used to dealing with.

Mercury reenters investigative Scorpio on November 10, giving you the chance to look into some topics youâve been curious about for a while now.

On the tenth, Mercury reenters secretive Scorpio, where it was for most of its retrograde cycle, and itâs time to keep things on the down low.

If itâs your turn to apologize, do it sincerely.
The nineteenth brings a Venus-Saturn square thatâs accompanied by more than its share of angst and disappointment, Sometimes it seems like no matter how hard you try, you canât make things turn out the way you want them to.

Venus enters mysterious and magnetic Scorpio on November 21, at the same time the sun enters adventurous Sagittarius.

As communication guru Mercury, your leader, turns direct while in lovely Libra on November 3, you can look forward to your life heading in a more positive direction.

Thereâs a Mercury-Saturn (in Capricorn) square on the sixth that should be on your radar because this stressful combination alters your thinking pattern and makes it hard for you to focus on the details of a certain professional situation.

Mercury is in your fair-minded sign when it goes direct on November 3, so you should be able to get your communication issues back on track faster than some other signs.

Venus pairs up with your intense sign on the twenty-first, but this isnât an ideal partnership. Your control issues are too much for someone now, and your incessant need to be right comes off as elitist and egotistical. Yes, your confidence is a turn-on to some, but at what price?
As expansive Jupiter, your leader, conjoins transformative Pluto for the last time this year on November 12, itâs an indication that youâre on the verge of accomplishing great things.

New learning opportunities are everywhere, even close to home.
Talkative Mercury is in gentle Libra as it squares serious Saturn in your sensible sign on November 6.

Dreamy Neptune goes direct on November 28, bringing reality crashing down around you. Youâve been able to elude the truth for a long time now, but you canât do it anymore. Your fantasies and daydreams are still a good distraction, but they arenât a substitute for seeing things as they really are.
