The Center for the New Age is pleased to present your Free Weekly Horoscope for November 3 – November 9, 2019
First Quarter Moon in Aquarius on November 4 will assist our moods to meet and formally address humanity’s newest challenges by putting the spotlight on eccentric and unusual breakthroughs of humankind.
Mars in Libra is square Pluto in Capricorn (November 5 – November 14). Mars emphasizes all forms of action while Pluto represents the transformational powers of destiny. These two planets in the square position spell out the potential for trouble with regard to our actions. Actions against or conflicts with higher powers are likely to backfire – it is best not to bluff those of a higher or unanticipated authority at this time, as taking action in an attempt to create a transformation may be very dangerous. This may be a particularly difficult time to fight addiction, disease and war related stress – it is also the most crucial time not to give up the fight.
Saturn in Capricorn is sextile Neptune in Pisces (November 8 – December 5). This aspect makes one sensible about future plans and provides the ability to defer gratification. During this transit, one finds the patience to see a project through to the very end, no matter what obstacles fall in one’s path. Patience is probably one of its biggest gifts.
Mercury in Scorpio sextile Pluto in Capricorn (November 9 – November 12) brings an opportunity for us to get the message across to people in strong positions of power and authority. This is also an opportunistic time to reach out to those of another generation and make an attempt to communicate something vital.
Free Weekly Horoscope for your Sign
Aries: If nothing makes sense right now, maybe it’s not meant to. Maybe you’re meant to feel an element of mystery or uncertainty about a situation. Sometimes it’s only by putting one foot in front of the other, without a clue where you’re going, that you can immerse yourself fully into something that leaves you richer and more well-rounded. If you need answers, try consulting a psychic, an astrologer or someone else who can shed some light for you. Remind yourself that life is a mystery to be lived.
Taurus: It’s time to fix your relationships – or one in particular. Mercury retrograding through your partnership zone brings the chance to right any wrongs and put more energy into your personal ties. Most relationship problems stem from poor communication, so now is the time to sit down, speak from the heart, and listen with your soul. Once you really hear the other person, it is much easier to understand where he or she is coming from and to offer forgiveness and compassion. Make some quality time for you and the other.
Gemini: Work and health are key themes now, and it’s likely that at least one of them needs your attention. Mercury’s backward motion makes this the perfect time to correct whatever is amiss. That could be getting a checkup and arranging a course of treatment or sorting out your paperwork and filing systems. This isn’t really a good time for starting anything new; it’s more a time to sort out lingering problems and deal with stuff that has been building up. Don’t expect your day-to-day life to flow very smoothly, but the more able you are to slow down, the easier things will be; you will be less likely to come up against problems, health or otherwise.
Cancer: Judy Garland advised, “Always be a first-rate version of yourself instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.” What is your best version? Do you remember a time when you were that person, or have you yet to discover your best self? Whether you’ve lost the essence of who you really are or you’ve never really known, Mercury backtracking through your zone of self-expression encourages you to simply be yourself and let your choices and decisions come from your heart. The quest now is to ascertain how you can be more authentic and stop compromising yourself.
Leo: As Mercury backtracks through your domestic zone, the time is ripe to direct your attention to matters of home and family, from family issues to jobs around the house. Don’t expect matters to be straightforward initially, but you should notice a big improvement as time passes. For example, you might find it easy to strike up a conversation that heals a problem with a family member. It could help to bear in mind Confucius’s wise words and let them be your guide while Mercury is retrograde: “The strength of a nation derives from the integrity of the home.”
Virgo: No matter what is going on in your world, it could be that you’re overlooking the obvious. Mercury retrograde wants you to slow down, look around, notice things and sort through the accumulated stuff in your head and your physical world. You can’t do that if you continue at your normal speed and live life as you usually do. A change would be good this week, particularly a change of pace or perspective. Then you might see that whatever annoying things are going on are actually valuable clues from the universe (or your inner self) to nudge you in the right direction.
Libra: Money is the major theme as the Sun, along with Mercury retrograde, highlight certain financial or material issues you need to deal with. You might need to sort out one or two things or rethink your approach to money so that it works better for you. It might help to consider that most people have enough money but don’t think they do, so this is an opportune time to carefully assess your situation to see whether it’s not more money you need but a simpler way of life. There are many enjoyable ways to spend time that are free or cost very little; the challenge this week is to focus on simple, sensual pleasures without breaking the bank.
Scorpio: As Mercury travels backward through your sign, it’s understandable if you find it difficult to move forward in a straight line. This is less a time for physical progress and more a time for taking stock, reviewing your situation, and deciding what’s next. Your choices might range from giving yourself an overhaul (new wardrobe or haircut) to a major life tweak where you reassess your direction and spend time determining what you want. Either way, this is an introspective phase that benefits you to reduce your number of commitments and focus on your story and whether it’s time to rewrite certain features. You have a lot of power at your disposal, but you need to use it wisely.
Sagittarius: It’s time to turn your attention inward, as backtracking Mercury joins the Sun in your zone of rest and repose. This is not the time for dashing about, so if you have a lot on your plate, try to carve out some downtime when you can reconnect with your inner being, which likely has something it wants to tell you. By getting quiet and attuning yourself to the whispers of your soul, this could be a magical time; you see beyond the veil and are privy to the hidden aspects of life that most people have no idea of. Dreams, meditation, inner journeys, quiet contemplation, prayer or yoga could prove instrumental in helping you connect with what really matters.
Capricorn: If the path ahead doesn’t seem obvious, you might need to pause for a moment and make some tweaks to your trajectory. This can apply to your friends, social life, and groups you belong to, as well as your hopes and dreams for the future. Either way, your connections with others and contribution to society are coming under the microscope now, and it would be timely to iron out any problems. Catching up with old friends, revising your role in a group, or reconsidering how you make a difference in the world are all key factors now.
Aquarius: Your purpose and direction in life are called into question as Mercury backtracks through this region. Now is the time to question whether you’re happy with your career and where you’re going with your life in general. Do you need to make a change? If so, now is the perfect time. It will serve you well not to follow your goals and ambitions blindly, especially if you come up against blocks or frustrations. Instead, take time to reflect on where you’re going, and make sure your career is working the way you want it to.
Pisces: Adventure is your theme, but it might not be as straightforward as you like. Travel, for instance, could be problematic, as are things you want to expand. Trying to push forward with a plan or a dream could be counterproductive, so a hitch or a delay might be a sign that you’re better off looking for experiences that allow you to simply be. Travel or journeys of a spiritual nature could work, but ultimately the universe is asking you to discover what feels meaningful and to follow that. As Rick Riordan said, “If my life is going to mean anything, I have to live it myself.”
