General Horoscope for November 9, 2018
It’s all too easy to get swept up in the winds of change while forgetting to take care of business in the present moment. Jupiter, Mercury, and the Moon in visionary Sagittarius draw our thoughts into the distance. We may be giddy with anticipation, fueled by a creative Venus-Mars trine. Nevertheless, how we use this cosmic gift is up to each of us. We can sit back and lazily experience pleasure or engage the future by consciously co-creating it.
Aries Horoscope — March 21 to April 19
You might find it easy to put the proverbial cart before the horse. Perhaps this impulsivity plays out literally, like being in such a hurry that you forget your car keys or fail to proofread an important email reply. The truth is it’s impossible to keep your thoughts from racing elsewhere with swift Mercury and the moody Moon traveling in fiery Sagittarius. Instead, leave some time to let your mind wander. Plan your next big vacation by poring over articles and images of fascinating places. Adventure somewhere beckons; prepare to heed the call.
Taurus Horoscope — April 20 to May 20
Transforming negative thoughts into positive ones is within the scope of your powers. However, this kind of mental alchemy is no simple feat. Your fears race around at breakneck speed and if you try to address every one of them today, you might feel like you’re chasing greased chickens around a coop. Stop trying so hard to resolve every worry that crosses your path. In fact, the secret is that you don’t have to chase after anything. Trust more that what belongs to you will come closer, or at least close enough for you to grab it.
Gemini Horoscope — May 21 to June 20
Don’t believe everything you hear today. This cosmic warning doesn’t necessarily mean someone in your inner circle is purposely deceiving you. However, people can easily exaggerate a story, pass along rumors, or simply mix up the details. Perhaps you might even be guilty of some of the same behaviors. Do your own due diligence before taking someone’s word at face value. Keep a keen eye out for discrepancies now. Once armed with the facts, you can aim them at their appropriate targets, even if truth’s arrow loops back to strike you, too. Transparency breeds trust.
Cancer Horoscope — June 21 to July 22
Boredom will not be one of your problems today. You’re high on energy, pluck, and excitement with the fast-moving Moon and Mercury roaming together in adventurous Sagittarius. But you might demand more information than you have time to understand or expect to go to more places than you can possibly visit in a day. Respect your limits by breaking your goals into manageable chunks. Your need for sleep is just part of being a human. Indeed, the spirit is willing and the flesh is weak.
Leo Horoscope — July 23 to Aug. 22
Amusing yourself might become more important than anything else now. Perhaps your wit dances merrily wherever it lands and puts everyone in a good mood. You can interact happily with others without too many cares in the world. Regardless of what you do for fun today, allow yourself to be carried away a little bit. Your inner child needs some loving attention and conscious indulgence. Yes, you’re an adult with obligations, but perhaps philosopher Heraclitus said it better this way: “Man is most nearly himself when he achieves the seriousness of a child at play.”
Virgo Horoscope — Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
Your mind likely dwells on exploring events from your childhood, but this isn’t a simple case of nostalgia today. You’re trying to construct a better sense of your story of origin to explain the superhero you’re currently becoming. Your zeal to uncover more about yourself could provoke your impatience now, prompting you to grill family members for details as if they’re concealing something from you. Chances are they’re not. The labyrinth of memory and discovery has more twists and turns to it than you expect. Follow the path wherever it leads to discover your authentic self.
Libra Horoscope — Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
You have a lot more pep in your step today. In fact, you might even achieve a new personal best in distance traveled if you track your activity. Roam to your heart’s content, but make sure your phone or other mobile device is fully charged before you set out. There’s a lot on your mind and you want to share your many thoughts and creative musings. Catching up with friends while running errands could turn out to be the most relaxing thing you do all day. Mixing business and pleasure maximizes your personal satisfaction.
Scorpio Horoscope — Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
It might pay to speak with a professional accountant or knowledgeable friend about your finances now. A fiscal check-up on multiple fronts including your portfolio, retirement accounts, and insurance policies is a beneficial use of your time. An alternative point of view enables you to see how your current money management squares with your long-range plans. The truth is some course corrections may be in order. Be receptive about the advice you receive today, and don’t let your emotions or ego get the best of you. What you hear needn’t be about what’s wrong as much as how you can do better with what you hold dear.
Sagittarius Horoscope — Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
Your hands, feet, or mouth move faster than your brain today, making it easier to get ahead of yourself in word or deed. You could even lose track of things if you’re in a rush. Quicksilver Mercury conjoins an exuberant Sagittarius Moon to propel your energy to nearly light speed, which is wonderful if you’re doing something that requires lightning-flash responses. But multitasking won’t likely be a good idea now, as juggling too much might confuse your intentions. It’s better to accomplish one thing at a time well than wreck many things at a record rate. Slow down for the sake of safety and productivity.
Capricorn Horoscope — Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
Release some of the pressure off your mind in a constructive manner today. You might consider taking a long walk with a friend to meander through each other’s thoughts while the Moon and Mercury conspire in peripatetic Sagittarius. You’re likely to be more philosophical and pensive now, leaving you with less patience for the grit and gristle of mundane tasks. Although you can’t retreat from your daily obligations, carve out time to contemplate your life and calculate your next move. Self-reflection may be just what the doctor ordered.
Aquarius Horoscope — Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
Chatting it up with old or new friends seems to be the agenda for the day. Others have a lot to say now, and you might find it hard to pull yourself away. Don’t underestimate the power of small talk. Resourceful Venus harmoniously trines enterprising Mars, encouraging light conversations to morph into solid initiatives after more discussion. The chitchat will find its own natural rhythm if you keep the channels of communication open. The spark of inspiration can strike when you least expect it.
Pisces Horoscope — Feb. 19 to March 20
Give yourself permission to glow with enthusiasm and anticipation about your career. Your excitement is contagious and magnetic today, so don’t shy away from praise about your work. Savor the good news about better prospects with cautious optimism. However, there is always the possibility that certain desired outcomes might not go your way. Your doubts may bring you down, but your inspiration can also take you higher. Dare to envision the best. As Muhammad Ali said, a person “who has no imagination has no wings.” Fly, dear fish, fly!
