In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Monday, November 16, 2009
-Margaret Santangelo and Kitty Raymond
Scorpio: The new moon in your sign today kicks off a new phase for you…but you may have trouble getting plans off the ground right away. Take today to get your bearings and plan to really dive in tomorrow. Putting pressure on yourself to get quick results may just result in doing a slapdash job.
Sagittarius: Regrouping is the order of the day. You’re always go-go-go, but right now it behooves you to slow down and look within yourself. There could be something that you need to cut out of your life in order to move forward in the next month; quiet reflection will help you figure out what that is.
Capricorn: Even the healthiest friendship can turn toxic if you let a minor miscommunication fester. Today, clear the air with someone who is still sulking over a missed lunch date, an unanswered email, or the like. If you swallow your pride and put your feelings on the line, you’ll heal the wound in no time.
Aquarius: With the holiday season fast approaching, many people are putting their jobs on the back burner. But not you: Water-bearer women dive into the workweek with both feet today. When it comes to career advancement, you’ve got new determination and a new plan (quite possibly for world domination).
Pisces: A surprise is in store for you this morning, and it may lead to a revelation or an insight that sets you in a new direction. You may appear quiet and introspective to the people around you, but inside your mind is going a mile a minute, mulling over some pretty complex concepts.
Aries: A change will do you good…as long as you know what it is you need to change, and why. There’s no point in just shaking things up out of a vague sense of dissatisfaction. As you go about your day, keep your antennae tuned to any and all sources of frustration; you’ll quickly figure out what needs fixing.
Taurus: Today’s new moon brings a breath of fresh air to your love life. If you’ve fallen into a rut of same-old, same-old companionship, now is a perfect time to emerge from it. Shake things up and put the spice back in your romance. If you’re single, the magnetism you’re exuding now could easily attract a new partner.
Gemini: The emotional energies surrounding you today are a little intense for your taste. Keeping to yourself at work is a safer bet than getting involved in coworkers’ power struggles—you could wind up spending weeks extricating yourself.
Cancer: Around midday, your celestial ruler, the moon, begins a new cycle in Scorpio. The new moon is like a cosmic “reset” button for you, allowing you to wrap up old loose ends and begin afresh. If a creative project has stalled or you’ve been kicking around an idea for one, now is the time to get the ball rolling.
Leo: Today’s new moon puts you in the mood to hunker down at home, contemplating your next move. Right now, you’re inclined to spend time exclusively with loved ones who know you well enough to understand how you feel without you having to explain.
Virgo: A secret that comes to light today could change your plans for the near future. If it’s you who’s doing the blabbing, think carefully before the big reveal, and figure out exactly what you want to say. If you end up on the receiving end of a confession, sleep on it before you respond rather than reacting impulsively.
Libra: You’ll sit down today determined to get your financial picture in focus, but you find that the details are still a bit fuzzy. If you share a joint account or split expenses with someone, ask them to fill you in on their spending habits. Just don’t be confrontational; approach the situation with a “we’re a team” attitude.
