In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Wednesday, November 18, 2009
-Margaret Santangelo and Kitty Raymond
Scorpio: There’s a stirring of something intriguing but ineffable in the air that makes it difficult to concentrate on mundane matters like paying the bills (which are on your agenda for today, in theory at least). Do your best to focus on these tasks anyway; tomorrow is when you can let yourself be swept away by passion.
Sagittarius: With the moon passing through your sign all day long, it’s an upbeat, high-energy day for the sisterhood of Sagittarians. Around midday in particular, you have a stellar idea or take a winning risk…that is, as long as you don’t let nagging thoughts of self-doubt talk you out of it.
Capricorn: You’re feeling a bit scattered today, with your mind going in many different directions. This lack of focus might be frustrating for a one-step-at-a-time Goat girl, but do your best to embrace it. You might come up with a brainstorm you wouldn’t have had if you did everything strictly by the book.
Aquarius: Today offers you some fascinating growth opportunities, if you’re quick-witted enough to take them. It’s all about seizing the moment, so don’t let hesitation derail you. If you’re worried about having enough experience, tell yourself that you can always fake it till you make it.
Pisces: Believing in yourself will take you far today, in your career and in other realms. With a little ingenuity, you can take advantage of less-than-obvious opportunities that others aren’t picking up on. This evening offers you inspiration and quite possibly a little romance; share a dream with your significant other.
Aries: Having a vision is key right now. But it’s also important to be able to adapt that vision, if your research leads you to change your initial presumptions about the issue at hand. Draw on as many diverse sources as possible to gain the most complete perspective—there’s no one right solution, so rely on your judgment.
Taurus: When it comes to your career, you’re really reaching for the stars today. An unusual flash of insight could be guiding you as you strive to take your accomplishments to the next level. A collective group effort will take you farther than solo endeavors now, so form an alliance with colleagues whose opinions you respect.
Gemini: Your special someone is in a spontaneous mood, and you may be in store for a surprise romantic adventure. Do something that’s new and different, at least for you. Even if you don’t go farther from home than the new neighborhood Thai joint or local art-house theater, your evening has a spirit of excitement.
Cancer: Today you’re productive and generous with your time and energy. This afternoon, you’re bursting with helpful ideas. Just be careful not to give the impression that you’re stepping in because the other person can’t handle his or her own business.
Leo: All work and no play won’t cut it today. Your love interest might entice you to play hooky and run off on a romantic outing…or just distract you with naughty texts all day. This evening, channel your respective inner children and do something playful together, like a game of Twister or camping in the backyard.
Virgo: Wouldn’t it be fantastic if you could just jet off to a four-star spa anytime you needed to decompress? Well, assuming that such a jaunt doesn’t quite fit your schedule or budget, you can still steal a few moments of tranquility. Going for a long walk or getting your hands dirty in the garden helps clear your head.
Libra: People appreciate your ability to go with the flow rather than insisting on getting your own way. You have a chance to play Cupid; make like an online dating service and send your matchmakees photos of and factoids about each other. Just don’t volunteer so much background info they have nothing to talk about!
