General Horoscope for November 23, 2018
A plethora of big ideas lifts our spirits today but reaching our goals isn’t as simple as it first appears. The restless Gemini Full Moon at 12:39 am EST is agitated by a stressful square to contentious Mars. Additionally, Luna’s tense opposition to the farseeing Sagittarius Sun is exacerbated by grandiose Jupiter, turning the most trivial matters into demanding emergencies. It’s nearly impossible to stay focused when everything seems so urgent.
Aries Horoscope — March 21 to April 19
It’s easy to over-promise and under-deliver today. The clever Gemini Full Moon invigorates your 3rd House of Communication, allowing words to roll off your tongue before you have time to think twice about them. Although you may experience an increased desire to please and delight, you don’t necessarily have a firm grasp on your own resources and capabilities. For instance, you might believe you can dash out to run an errand and still make a meeting on the other side of town on a tight schedule. Reassessing your commitments now can save embarrassment later.
Taurus Horoscope — April 20 to May 20
Examine your budget and audit your finances as if you are an accountant today. But don’t just scrutinize what could be wrong; also look closely at what you can improve while the Gemini Full Moon magnifies Your 2nd House of Money. Be more aggressive with shrinking your debts and growing your savings while cutting back on your spending. You might fear tightening your belt will be tough, yet you will adjust soon enough with a solid grip on your fiscal future. Accountability cultivates confidence.
Gemini Horoscope — May 21 to June 20
Although you likely feel valued and validated now, you might secretly wonder why that’s not enough. The changeable Gemini Full Moon illuminates your 1st House of Self, bringing up alternating doubts and confirmations. Thankfully, your uncertainties aren’t questioning the loyalty and strength of the love and support you have around you. However, you could place too much value on how things look on the outside instead of acknowledging what you feel and know inside. Most external goals mirror your internal desires. Be sure you know what you need so you can ask for it directly.
Cancer Horoscope — June 21 to July 22
You may discover that a newly acquired routine has unexpected kinks. For example, maybe you’re not going to bed early enough to get up in time to exercise. You might silently resist a new protocol that could improve your workflow while the Gemini Full Moon brightens your 12th House of Secrets. Glitches and micro-failures can fuel improvements if you choose to embrace them rather than retreating. Acknowledge the current challenges as constructive feedback, not insurmountable obstacles. Henry Ford said, “Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.”
Leo Horoscope — July 23 to Aug. 22
People marvel with your ability to turn lemons into lemonade because you make it look so effortless today. If they only knew, right? Maybe it’s time to include someone else in your inner process. You pay a quiet psychic toll for keeping your shadow hidden underneath the bright lights. The interactive Gemini Full Moon activates your 11th House of Friends, encouraging you to reveal how you’ve been shouldering your burdens alone. You might be in a better place now, but opening up about recent struggles brings much-needed relief, clarity, and emotional support. You are not alone.
Virgo Horoscope — Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
You enjoy setting high standards for yourself and others, but you needn’t minimize your goals to keep them simple. Thankfully, you don’t have to save the planet single-handedly, even if the busy Gemini Full Moon excites your 10th House of Public Reputation. It’s enough that you strive to create a more comfortable existence, especially for the people you love. Be more forgiving of yourself if you miss your grand aspirations, since they might not even be the ones that people remember the most. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “To leave the world a bit better…to know that one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
Libra Horoscope — Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
There’s no need to look past your own nose if you find yourself bored out of your mind today. Although you’re more likely to feel unhappy when you’re unwilling to be clear about what your desires, your restlessness is less a problem than a symptom. You don’t have to be at war with yourself while the whimsical Gemini Full Moon rattles your 9th House of Adventure. It’s perfectly acceptable to curl up in bed with a good book now. Life becomes untenable if you expect something other than what you have. Philosopher Soren Kierkegaard wrote, “Boredom is the root of all evil — the despairing refusal to be oneself.”
Scorpio Horoscope — Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
Your thoughts drift toward getting more out of a hobby or pastime today. You might wish you could make a decent wage from a passion project or increase the amount of time you invest in learning and deriving pleasure from it. The truth is there is no excuse for not fully pursuing your avocation unless you’re afraid. Keep in mind that fear is often false evidence appearing real. Fortunately, the Gemini Full Moon lights up your 8th House of Hidden Feelings, inspiring you to discover what’s right or wrong about your current intentions. Listen to your heart and be true to yourself.
Sagittarius Horoscope — Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
You might feel wired for sound today, but your excess energy is likely difficult to express. The Gemini Moon rocks your 7th House of Others, spotlighting your adventurous attitude toward relationships. But your thoughts are vacillating so fast that you don’t share half of what you think. Nevertheless, you need to find a way to channel your feelings in a positive direction. Write them down or chat about them, even with strangers online in a forum or a random café. Thankfully, you’ll be relieved once your inner process is out in the open. Download what’s buzzing in your brain to clear room for new ideas.
Capricorn Horoscope — Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
Your health needs to be your primary concern today. You might be able to wave inattentive associates away with a curt declaration of being fine, but those closest to you will know when something isn’t right. The scattered Gemini Full Moon reverberates in your 6th House of Daily Routine, making it difficult to hide your feelings. Nevertheless, don’t be so duty bound that you refuse to heed what your mind, body and soul are telling you. If you need time to recoup or regroup, claim it rather than delay or deflect your own upkeep. Self-care is how you take your power back.
Aquarius Horoscope — Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
Keep a close eye on time and money when hanging out with your crew or family today. Your heart is likely bigger than the number of hours in a day or dollars in your bank account. In other words, you might have trouble knowing when to set limits while the easygoing Gemini Moon energizes your 5th House of Play. Perhaps you want to share or hear just one more story. Or, maybe you want to buy one more round of your favorite beverage, even though it’s time to go home. Capturing the fun with snapshots or journal entries enables you to save the memories for a rainy day.
Pisces Horoscope — Feb. 19 to March 20
Your once-clear career plans and next steps might not seem as plain today. It’s not that your intentions have changed or your confidence has wavered. It’s more likely the Gemini Full Moon is stimulating your 4th House of Emotional Security, reminding you to balance all the facets of your life. However, finding your center of gravity takes a significant amount of energy and could seem overwhelming at first. It’s easier to be patient and establish a sustainable pace when you remember that everything doesn’t have to happen all at once.
