In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Tuesday, November 10, 2009
-Margaret Santangelo and Kitty Raymond
Scorpio: Your future aspirations are on your mind today. Devise new ways to accomplish challenging goals in your career and personal life. You may be having a hard time balancing work and play, and as a result, you could be burning yourself out. Take a break from work this evening – you don’t want the hectic pace of your work to cause strain on your home life.
Sagittarius: You could be put under the spotlight at work today. Competitive colleagues may be calling attention to your shortcomings and attempting to undermine your effectiveness and power on the job. Don’t let another’s pettiness stress you out — he or she will only end up looking bad for not being a team player. Reach across the aisle, as they say in Washington, and win over your would-be adversary with a cooperative attitude.
Capricorn: Capricorns are born leaders, and when a power vacuum opens up today, it’s up to you to assume a position of authority. People who are used to thinking of you as a peer may bristle at first, but stand your ground: They’ll come around to realize you’re doing what’s best for the good of the group. Before the sun sets, you will get the respect you deserve for sticking your neck out.
Aquarius: Today is a power period when you can overcome obstacles and broaden your horizons. The only thing that can possibly hold you back is if you let needless negative thoughts undermine your belief in yourself. Don’t be your own worst enemy! Repeat a mantra or do a visualization exercise to convince yourself you’ll succeed. Your attitude exerts a strong impact on the situation.
Pisces: Your significant other or good friend may be quietly networking or working some social connections on your behalf this morning. A surprise career opportunity for you could emerge as early as midday, so be prepared to offer up some ideas when you are approached. You may feel put on the spot, but you’ll need to prove you’re up to the task on the strength of your own skills and not just who you know.
Aries: Today you’ll be energized and motivated to take care of everyday chores that you have been putting off. The early morning is the best time to focus on personal tasks that you need to attend to in private. This afternoon you may feel pressure on the job. If what’s expected of you seems unfair, confront your employers or associates this evening.
Taurus: Romantic daydreams distract you all day long; rely on Outlook reminders and jotted Post-Its to stay on track with your to-dos. This afternoon, you may be ready to burst with frustrations over your career. Recession or no, you have to believe in yourself and take risks in order to move forward…so get started!
Gemini: You may well have woken up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. Talking through your worries and insecurities aloud will help you see that they’re all in your mind. If you hold onto them, they’ll continue to be stumbling blocks in your path. If the thought of a face-to-face talk intimidates you, call a long-distance friend or even post your problem on an online message board.
Cancer: Today you may discover an entire new stream of ideas. Take advantage of the current increase in your powers of intuition, and read between the lines when interacting with professional associates. If you’re dealing with someone who is sensitive, plan what to say so you don’t step on any toes.
Leo: Money problems that have been plaguing you for some time may finally be brought to an end today. If you hunker down and apply your analytical mind to the situation at hand, you’ll be able to come up with a workable solution—although, granted, it may involve some sacrifices.
Virgo: Though you may have lost sleep tossing and turning after waking up with a middle-of-the-night worry, you’ll arise with a sense of mental clarity and the motivation to take on the world. This evening is the best time to attack practical tasks that you have been putting off for some time—so that you’re sure to sleep soundly tonight.
Libra: You have one meeting, errand, or appointment after another all day long, and the phone won’t stop ringing. You may need to go off somewhere alone in order to make any serious progress on a project. If you can, ask to leave work early and hole up in your home office or study. You’ll get a lot more done sequestered at home.
