In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Monday, November 9, 2009
-Margaret Santangelo and Katherine Raymond
Scorpio: With love planet Venus in your sign, you’ve got serious game today. Whether you’re looking to seal a major business deal or land the guy you’ve been lusting after, you project a confidence and fervor that make you truly seductive. Seize the moment…just don’t do anything you might wake up feeling embarrassed about tomorrow.
Sagittarius: Today, you could fall under someone else’s sway if you allow yourself to be lured by any sort of siren call. Maintain your self-control, even in the face of a powerful temptation. That smooth-tongued dude who wants to sell you a time-share can sniff out the slightest weakness, so don’t waver for a moment.
Capricorn: You may see your influence increase today, and the feeling of empowerment you gain will inspire you to conquer even more uncharted territory. Watch out for a tendency to be domineering toward people in your social circle. Share a tightly guarded secret with a loved one; you’ll grow closer.
Aquarius: Today, you’ll experience an outpouring of feelings that have been bottled up inside, and really reach out to your significant other or a cherished friend. Pouring your heart out will make you stronger, not weaker, as long as you do it with someone you can truly trust.
Pisces: Today you’ll be matter-of-fact about telling your friends what you want—and letting them take it or leave it. You may be under pressure on a deadline this afternoon. Refuse to compromise the quality of your work for the sake of an arbitrary schedule. You’ll be able to sweet-talk your boss or a client into granting you an extension if necessary.
Aries: Today there is a definite note of intensity in the atmosphere. You are determined not to do anything halfway—only your best performance will make the cut—and you refuse to let anyone stand in your way. Working with a romantic partner on a project is a great way to bring you closer together.
Taurus: While it might seem like a mundane Monday, what happens behind closed doors will be anything but ordinary if you practice what is cheesily known as the art of seduction. Whether you’re in the first flush of a new romance or have been with your partner for years, you instinctively know how to shake things up sensually now.
Gemini: Today it’s important to maintain an intent focus on one thing at a time. There are many subtle power dynamics at play, and unless you’re really attuned to them, you could unwittingly wind up in a vulnerable position. Don’t be the pawn in a human chess game—concentrate on protecting your own interests, both in your relationships and in the workplace.
Cancer: It’s time to take back some control in your relationship. You’ll be able to tackle this negotiation in your gentle, compassionate Cancer manner, without creating conflict or confrontation…but with that said, it doesn’t hurt to let your significant other know you mean business.
Leo: Although you’ll do almost anything for your loved ones, there are times when you need to be on the receiving end of some special treatment at home—and today is one of them. Don’t be shy about delegating tasks to the rest of the household, freeing your time up to recharge your batteries. Just don’t count on them being executed as perfectly as if you’d done the work yourself!
Virgo: You’re unusually canny when it comes to getting what you want from people today. It’s easy to identify people’s hidden motives, and then leverage this understanding of their secret desires to coax them into doing your bidding. Give yourself a breather tonight—shut off your cell phone and stop sending out Tweets. Conserve energy for a big day tomorrow.
Libra: When it comes to romantic attention, you’re as much in demand as Robert Pattinson at a Twilight fan convention. Getting swept up in the moment is a strong temptation now…but don’t fall prey to deception by someone who’ll stop at nothing to sweep you off your feet.
