Sunday, November 19
Our emotional baggage is carefully packed while the adventure-seeking Sagittarius Moon tempts us with thrilling possibilities for travel. However, someone who is supposed to be an ally may change the rules by which we play. They could even turn into a real-life nemesis that blocks our progress at every opportunity when combative Mars squares unforgiving Pluto. Nevertheless, a carefully constructed strategy is more valuable than a show of strength.
Aries Cancer Libra Capricorn
Taurus Leo Scorpio Aquarius
Gemini Virgo Sagittarius Pisces
Aries     You could go to extremes in order to reach your goals today. You may be so obsessed about getting what you want that you don’t even think about giving up when you meet resistance. Unfortunately, others might see your current ruthlessness as a behavior that needs to be checked, so they band together to put you in your place. Fortunately, your opposition will begin to fade as soon as you cool your jets and stop trying to control every situation. French Poet Guillaume Apollinaire wrote, “Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.”
Taurus     Although you typically prefer slow and methodical improvements, you are running out of patience and want to shake everything up today. You’re less interested in establishing a sustainable process than you are in implementing dramatic change. However, you will accomplish a lot more in a shorter period of time if you remember to include others in your plans. Persuading a few folks to join your parade attracts more attention to the event and increases the fun for everyone.
Gemini     On any other day, you might create an expressive piece of art by simply jumping in with your brush, guitar or pen. But today is different as you hope to toss your ideas around with a friendly audience first. Surprisingly, talking about the meaning behind your current inspiration tends to polarize people’s personal beliefs. However, it’s not your job to change anyone’s mind now. You only need to worry about managing your own feelings. Give everyone the courtesy of ample time before asking for their opinions. In the meantime, continue to honor your muse with your best work.
Cancer     It feels as if someone is working against you now and you wish you could just ignore the negativity. But you can’t just walk away today; the unaddressed energy will circle back to you soon enough. Confront the source of resistance directly since you can't expect others to continue to pass along your message intact. Nevertheless, opting for behind-the-scenes discussions allows you to make your point while saving face for your opponent. Demonstrating compassion encourages your enemies to become your friends.
Leo     Your unique perspective enables you to see far into the future today, yet you still can swing into action with little warning to protect your favorite idea. Your vision is clear, but your reaction may be excessive because your energy is so tightly wired now. The last thing you’re looking for is a fight, but one might be brewing before your eyes. Fortunately, you have the power to walk the energy back to neutral if you tone down your roar and present a factual case that can’t be denied.
Virgo     You could be called on to stand up to a bossy person who seems to think that intimidation will silence anyone who disagrees. Thankfully, you don’t need to accept someone’s transparent power play or any type of bullying, regardless of the context. Your voice is only one, but it sings in unity with many others. You may wonder if you’re the best one to say anything publicly today. The answer is yes. Speaking up for justice inspires others to do the same.
Libra     Your even-keeled approach to an emotionally charged conflict is exactly what’s needed to help settle the energy. You hold high standards for yourself and others today. You stand firm in your convictions and defy anyone to question your resolve. As long as you maintain your integrity, you can transform a difficult situation into a manageable one. Don’t let your emotions muddy your clarity. Keep your eyes on the ultimate goal of reconciliation and expect the best. Roy T. Bennett wrote, “Create your own miracles; do what you think you cannot do.”
Scorpio     You’re not going to show your anger because you believe that will only reduce your power today. Instead, you’re more likely to use the energy generated by the willful Mars-Pluto square to create a plan that will even the score. You’re not in a hurry; you want to be sure your actions create the effect you seek. There’s no need to grab low-hanging fruit just because it’s available. Take whatever time is necessary to turn your strategy into a winning course of action. Frank Sinatra said, “The best revenge is massive success.”
Sagittarius     You see your destination in the distance and may head out in that direction without giving it a second thought. Although your emotionally charged state of mind has a strong impact on your current actions, you might believe you’re making a rational decision based solely on the facts. You're worried people are plotting against you now and any delay on your part will send a signal of weakness to them. Don’t take the bait; an African proverb teaches, “When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you.”
Capricorn     You are driven to take charge but you may end up creating a quagmire of conflict today, whether you’re planning a corporate coup or a family outing. You are poised to conquer anyone who challenges your position while domineering Pluto in your sign squares bossy Mars in your 10th House of Public Responsibility. Although you may wish you could share power with someone you trust, you are likely to fiercely guard your secret to protect your vulnerability. Author Ken Blanchard wrote, “The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority.”
Aquarius     You might feel as if your spiritual integrity is under attack today as someone publicly compares your beliefs with theirs. But you’re not interested in a debate about which system is superior; it’s sufficient that your metaphysical understanding of the universe works for you. In your mind, there’s nothing to be gained from an academic discussion about such a personal subject. The Dalai Lama said, “The purpose of religion is to control yourself, not to criticize others.”
Pisces     You want nothing more than to get to the original source of a mystery and you will do nearly anything to uncover it today. Your conundrum may be a simple whodunnit or a complex metaphysical question. Either way, your secret weapon now is your emotionally detached approach to the search. Relentlessly gathering the facts and peeling back the hidden layers enable you to see things in an entirely new light. You begin looking for one thing, only to discover something much more valuable. Poet John Dryden wrote, “He who would search for pearls must dive below.”
