Aries
Enjoy a meal with your closest companions. You may feel like your hands are tied in matters related to love and romance. Coping with the sensitive egos of others may require diplomacy.
Taurus
Doing some good research in your field will ensure that you are a notch above the competition. Watch out for minor accidents today.
Gemini
You may find yourself returning to activities or routines from the past. An attraction will take you by surprise. The day will end on a positive note.
Cancer
Those of you who are single could come into contact with an old flame. Ailments that have plagued you for some time now will begin to disappear.
Leo
Travel related to your job could bring you new and creative ideas. Handwritten notes could be the best way to express unsaid emotions. It is important that you keep your stress under wraps.
Virgo
Long-distance travel may be delayed. Expect work on a short notice today, which may compel you to reassess your priorities. A chance meeting could provide you with very useful information.
Libra
It is very important that you make some time for romance today. Otherwise, you could upset your partner. Also, be ready to step out of the familiar and into something new in your routine.
Scorpio
At work, you may have to deal with a hot-tempered colleague. Your health might need attention. You are likely to have a busy day, so pace yourself.
Sagittarius
You may form a new friendship or association. And you’ll have opportunities to connect with someone exciting. Love will need your attention today.
Capricorn
Spend time with your children and have a friendly chat. It is a good time for those in the publishing business. Your family may need help.
Aquarius
Finances may seem unstable, but you will be able to find ways to help yourself. Your honesty with your partner will not only impress the person, it will also will strengthen the bond.
Pisces
If you have been under pressure at your place of employment, this would be a good day to give yourself a special treat. It is also important to remember that you do not take your partner for granted.

Neptune’s long-awaited change of direction takes place this week. Well, I say ‘long- awaited’ but actually, we have only been waiting for this since June. And I say ‘change of direction’ but actually, planets don’t ever change direction. They just appear to do so due to the speed of their movement relative to that of the Earth. I don’t, you’ll be glad to hear, have any more statements to make in one sentence, then retract in the next. You’ll be even more glad to hear that Neptune’s change of direction makes U-turns less likely for us all.
Nov 16 2014 - Nov 22 2014
Aries
It seems as if lately, you have been striving to develop a strategy. This has been difficult because you aren’t sure what is possible and what isn’t. You need more information. You also need more faith, if only in the idea that, when you get that information, you will like it. Too often, in life, we fail to ask certain questions because we fear that we will be disappointed by the answers. But if we never ask those questions at all, we will never know what those answers might have been. Find the courage, this week, to explore and experiment. In your love life: Things that seem bad can sometimes lead to things that are very good indeed. Just be conscious of this in your love life now.
Taurus
Have you got what you want? Or what you think you want? Or what you think you ought to want? Often, when our aims and objectives are first fulfilled, we feel so pleased that we simply cannot think past the moment of elation. Only after a while do we discover whether we were chasing a dream or pursuing a truly practical plan. Then again, sometimes we have deep initial doubts about developments that turn out much better than we expected them to. Let a little more time pass this week, and don’t worry. In your love life: Someone you care for is in the process of making an important discovery for themselves. Be supportive and patient.
Gemini
If everything in life were smooth-running, straightforward and sensible, you would be bored to tears. We all need a little chaos in our world. Without maverick forces, unpredictable situations, precarious arrangements and ridiculous assumptions, we would have no colour, no spice, no contrast, no interest. Er... have I convinced you yet? Your hunger for order is strong, this week. But soon, you are going to get reassurance about a matter that has been upsetting you for far too long. With stability here, you will be safe. In your love life: You don’t have to make yourself a martyr to your conscience — but you do have to listen to what it is saying as you now deal with issues in your love life.
Cancer
What kind of a week are you keen to avoid? Which particular source of potential trouble are you especially eager to side-step? What cause of conflict are you expecting to arise at any moment? What dire disappointment are you steeling yourself for? I only ask because I think if we get the worst out into the open, we can then find something that’s been hiding behind it. The best. The best you hardly dare hope for. The best you truly deserve. And the best that you’re yet going to get. Don’t worry. Just relax! In your love life: There’s a ‘perspective issue’ in your love life now. All you need to do is stand back and you’ll immediately see the right way to step forward.
Leo
Sometimes, the planets bring us opportunities. Sometimes, they bring us challenges. Sometimes, they bring us choices and alternatives. They don’t say, ‘Things must be this way for you.’ They say, ‘What do you want? What would you like?’ We don’t always know how to answer. We may feel too despondent, disempowered, disillusioned or deluded to even know how to make a decision. If that’s the case, you should ask for clarity. First, invite the universe to show you what’s needed. Then you’ll see how to get it. In your love life: If there has been trouble in your love life lately, let it go and move on. Soon, the old problem won’t be a problem any more.
Virgo
Some things simply make no sense. We can strive to explain them by consulting experts, typing words and phrases into search engines, looking at them from every angle, or even asking the person in our life who normally knows the answer to everything. Yet even if we do this, we will still be none the wiser. The situation that you currently find yourself facing fits this category. Don’t question it; accept it. It brings a much-needed change that will yet lead to a precious new perspective. That will help you in so many ways. In your love life: If you try too hard to fix what’s seemingly wrong in your love life you may make it worse! Look instead for reasons why it may not be as wrong as you fear.
Libra
What’s funny? And what’s so serious that it can’t possibly represent a source of amusement? There are some things that are beyond laughter or even parody. Bad things and sad things, for example. But mad things are different. They deserve to have fun poked at them, especially if they’re being done (or said) by folk who purport to be sensible. Are you in danger now, of being disrespectful? Perhaps. But some situations, some organisations and even some authorities, really don’t deserve respect this week! In your love life: What happens next in your emotional life will be connected to what you believe you are entitled to! So believe in the best and you may yet get it!
Scorpio
They say ‘if you can’t beat ’em, you might as well join ’em.’ Good advice? That depends on how hard you try before you acknowledge defeat. Some people give in far too easily; they don’t even strive for victory. They just take one look at the opposition and surrender. There is nothing to stop you now from taking a conventional view of a sensitive situation. You can think what everyone else seems to be thinking as long as you can put your hand on your heart and say this is what you think, too. If not, speak out this week. In your love life: To prepare for what’s ahead in your love life, just relax. Ask the universe for what you want, not just what you want to protect you from what you fear!
Sagittarius
What use is a shelter with no walls? Well, it’s fine if you only seek protection from vertical rain or overhead sun. Often, we don't realise how exposed we are until we encounter a new problem. Naturally, we guard only against what experience has taught us to be wary of. You are dealing with a situation that nobody could have foreseen. Your existing strategies and resources won't help you much - but spontaneous innovations that you help to bring about this week, will work wonders. Trust yourself. In your love life: Are you sure you know what’s available to you in your love life? Be ready to be pleasantly surprised.
Capricorn
Recent events have turned you inside out and upside down. Your world may look much as it did a few weeks ago but it feels rather different. Your perspective has changed. You have altered your understanding of a situation or a person and, in the process, you have started to see yourself in a new light. By and large, this feels (or should soon be starting to feel) good. But you would really like some comfort and stability now. I am delighted to say that this is attainable. Problems are in the past, not the future. In your love life: Pace yourself wisely. Trust what you understand (whilst respecting what you do not understand) and you will make the perfect romantic choice.
Aquarius
It seems as if events, this week, are inviting you to do something that you don’t know how to do. How can you do that? You don’t know how to do it! But then, nor do you know for sure that you don’t know how to do it! What else can you possibly do other than try your best and see what happens? Either you will discover that you are genuinely up against the limit of your ability, or you will make a breakthrough that changes your whole idea about what is possible and what is not. The cosmic climate speaks of a delightful discovery. In your love life: Don’t deny or ignore your deepest feelings. You know what matters. And why. Expressing this will make a big positive difference.
Pisces
The ruler of your sign changes direction this week. And, as it does, your view of the universe begins to alter dramatically. You have been looking, up until now, at a long list of limitations. ‘This is not possible because of that.’ ‘That is not possible because of this.’ But all those reasons for feeling restricted are about to evaporate. If some of them still seem solid, that is because they haven’t vanished quite yet. It may take a while longer for the process to have its effect. Even so, you are right to have faith in the possibility of change. In your love life: We often think, ‘That will never happen.’ How do we know? Events in your love life will soon oblige you to rethink your prospects in a good way.
