An optimistic New Moon in Sagittarius may renew your faith in love on Monday. In particular, we’re talking about the kind of love that takes you on a magic carpet ride, opening you up to a whole new world. Set your sights on the exotic vacation you and your sweetheart never had the opportunity to take, and make it happen if possible. The itch to travel will be strong — especially after Wednesday when Mercury enters Sagittarius. The real headline news in love this week, however, has more to do with Mars. The planet of assertive drive will enter relationship-oriented Libra on Saturday, where he’ll settle in for an unusually long visit — until July 2014! Think all is fair in love and war? Not so fast…
Big news, Aries! On Saturday, Mars, your ruler, will enter your 7th House of Partnership. This transit happens about once every two years, but this time it’ll be extra special. Why? In 2014, Mars will turn retrograde, giving you an opportunity to carefully revisit your approach to partnership matters. How are you using your energy in relationship? Are you fighting with your partner for no good reason or are you avoiding a fight because you’re afraid of rocking the boat? Oh, and by the way, what happened to your sex life? These questions and more will be answered over the next several months.
You might not even be looking for the opportunity for a new intimate encounter this week, but thanks to Monday’s New Moon it’s quite possible that someone will approach you with a sexy request. Whether or not you choose to accept is up to you, of course, but if you do, be sure not to kiss and tell. On Friday, there’s a testy link between Mercury and Neptune to caution you against sharing any of that private pillow talk with friends. You wouldn’t want to be the subject of gossip.
On Monday, a New Moon may promise a fresh start for you and your mate. If things have been dull in the relationship department, it’s possible this lunation will open up the door for new adventures in love. After Wednesday, you’ll even find it easier to communicate with your partner and you may decide to pursue a new course of study together for fun. If single, your sex life is about to get a major jump start. Mars will enter your romance sector for the first time in nearly two years. Ooh la la!
Because you’re ruled by the fluctuating Moon, it’s no surprise that wherever the Moon goes in your chart is where your mood will focus. This week, on Wednesday and Thursday, you’ll have your emotions set on your partner as the Moon makes her way through your relationship sector. An intuitive grasp of your mate’s feelings will be easy to achieve. On Saturday, Mars will enter partnership Libra and your domestic 4th House of Home and Family. You and your sweetheart may have more quarrels about a home renovation project. Don’t lose sight of what really matters.
Are you looking for love in all the wrong places? This week, a brilliant New Moon might send just the signal you need to help you get your heart out of the “lost zone.” Anticipate at least one opportunity to date someone new. This person will likely captivate you more because of your differences rather than what you have in common. Be careful on Friday, however, because it’s possible that you’ll misunderstand your new paramour’s signals. Talking about a sexual fantasy doesn’t mean it’s time to manifest it!
You may feel extra sentimental about romance on Wednesday and Thursday, as the Moon tours your 5th House of True Love. While it’ll be a wonderful time to shower someone close with affection, at the same time you may feel distracted because these feelings will occur in the middle of your hectic work week. Give yourself permission to let loose once in a while. Besides, having your lover in bed will be more fun than taking home all of that paperwork!
Get ready to feel more energy than you have in quite some time! Mars, the planet that rules our “get up and go” factor, will move into your sign this Saturday, and isn’t going anywhere for several months. For the next few weeks you’ll feel passion return to your veins as Mars prompts you to go after what and whom you want most! You might notice a stronger sex drive, as well, as the ability to make that first move if you’re typically the shy type. You’ve got game!
A confusing conversation with your lover may set the tone for bewilderment rather than fulfillment in the romance department — especially by Friday. You might have unrealistic expectations about a relationship or what a lover can offer you in return for what you can offer him or her. On Saturday, Mars will enter your 12th House of Privacy. It might become more difficult to outwardly pursue someone you’ve got a crush on. You’ll need to make an extra effort because your intentions might not be as easy to read.
A New Moon in your sign on Monday can spell the beginning of something wonderful because it’ll allow you to write a brand new chapter in the story of your life. If a relationship is your priority now, you can certainly use this energy to help you attract an emotional equal. You’ll have an even stronger edge by Wednesday, when Mercury enters your sign and helps you communicate what you want clearly. You’ll offer up scintillating conversation that’ll make it difficult for someone you admire to ignore.
If there’s something private you’ve longed to share with your partner but somehow couldn’t open up enough to reveal, all of that may change this week. A New Moon will illuminate your 12th House of Privacy, opening up an opportunity for you to make a personal breakthrough. Because the Moon rules your partnership sector, it’ll be easy for you to “go there” with your mate and not worry so much that he or she will judge or condemn you. Trust that by sharing your innermost feelings, it’ll only draw the two of you closer.
If you’re single, you’ll want to focus on your circle of friends to help you breathe new life into your romantic prospects. A gorgeous New Moon on Monday will open up the floodgates in your social life. A pal may offer to set you up on a date or you might go out with a group of friends and meet someone special. On Wednesday, when Mercury (ruler of your romance sector) enters your friendship sector, you may consider asking a friend for advice about your love life. He or she can help you solve a relationship problem.
On Saturday, with sexy Mars moving into your erotic 8th House of Deep Transformation and Sex, on Saturday you’ll have the stamina to pursue your most taboo fantasies in the bedroom. Fortunately, your partner will be on board! You might experience some tension, however, when it comes to shared finances. If your mate has built up any credit card debt, for example, you may get into a quarrel. Alternatively, you and your partner might find yourselves in a position where you need to address a tax issue. Don’t let money problems ruin your great love affair.

There’s no shortage of incredible communication aspects this week, which will surely add support to your love life. Monday and Wednesday will be ideal days to make a decision regarding your sex or financial life. Thursday will be “the day” for all important conversations that involve your emotional security in a relationship. Then, on Saturday, the Sun and Uranus will link up in a way that opens up you and your mate to new and unchartered territory in your relationship. It’s all good!
There’s no way around it: You’ll have a serious choice to make about your intimate life this week. Are you happy with the one who shares your bed? If not, admit it. If you are, however, then it’s time to ask yourself why you’re hiding something from him or her. Come on, you know you are … even if it’s a lie of omission just to protect your mate. Stop lying to yourself, Aries — you know you’re only trying to protect yourself. It’s time to access your courage and be willing to share what it is you take great pains to avoid.
A deep conversation with your mate will bring you closer this week. On Monday, Mercury and Saturn will connect in your relationship sector, allowing you to make a realistic decision that’s long overdue. This may have to do with a change in how you handle finances together. Perhaps you’ll take on a joint account or loan, or one of you will help dig the other out of a financial hole. Your ability to achieve security in your relationship and your finances at the same time will be high. Use it well.
With the Moon touring your romance sector from late Wednesday afternoon into Friday night, you’ll have a stronger emotional focus on matters of the heart. These will be ideal days to go on a first date with someone special if you’re single. If you’re attached, you’ll have an opportunity to rekindle the sparks between you and your lover. On Saturday, the Sun will send a supportive beam to Uranus, and your relationship will feel a bolt of stimulation, thanks to an event on your social calendar. It’ll be a little “out there,” but that’s exactly what you’ll enjoy most about it.
Are you and your new sweetheart ready for a commitment? This week, you may decide that the answer is a resounding “yes!” Expect a firm decision between Monday and Wednesday. Also, on Wednesday, if you’re already in a committed relationship you and your partner might have a conversation about starting a family, or, if you already have children, adding to your clan. No matter what’s happening in your love life, Thursday will be a day of mutual indulgence. Go ahead and spoil the one you love — just a little!
Love might be an adventure this week, and if so you’ll feel determined to make the most of it. If you’re feeling a sense of wanderlust, you might decide to take matters into your own hands and arrange an impromptu trip with your sweetheart. You and your love may have talked about visiting an exotic locale that’s interested you both for quite some time, and it’s possible you will decide by Saturday that now is the time to go for it. Living your life out loud is your motto, Leo, and this week you plan on doing exactly that.
A creative project you and your sweetheart are working on may be your focus this week. Expect to make great strides in this endeavor, especially by Wednesday. You might also talk more about ways to have fun with your lover — both in and out of the bedroom. What hobbies or other recreational activities do you enjoy together? Do you have a shared passion besides each other? This will be an ideal week to explore whatever it is that gives you both joy as a couple.
The Moon will tour your sign from late Wednesday afternoon until Friday night, prompting you to wear your heart on your sleeve. You’ll easily reveal your emotions to someone special, and this honesty is exactly what needs to happen to move a burgeoning relationship forward. Don’t waste your time with anxiety — honor your genuine feelings and share them with who matters most to you. On Saturday, a snap decision between you and your partner will excite you. You’ll see the possibilities that lay ahead.
When it comes to your love life, you’ll be dead serious about whatever you say to your mate this week. If you make a promise, you have every intention to keep your word and you’ll go to the ends of the earth to make sure that happens. If you don’t mean exactly what you say, then you’re not going to say it. A significant pledge or decision with your lover might take place by Wednesday, and if so it’ll be something that adds depth to your already solid bond. If single, you may yearn for a deeper connection with someone on Saturday and Sunday.
You may feel overly optimistic about finances on Thursday, and as a result you may purchase an extravagant gift for your partner. Alternatively, you and your mate could decide to make an investment based on hope and faith. Take a step back and make sure you’re not putting your money into something that’s not secure. A little risk may be fine, but throwing caution to the wind altogether may cost you both — big time. If single, you might suddenly meet someone on Saturday who makes your knees weak. Delicious!
When your lover is your best friend, you have a special kind of blessing in relationship. On Wednesday, you’ll likely feel you’ve won the cosmic jackpot in that sense. The capacity you have to experience social simpatico and a true camaraderie with your lover will be incredible. Then, on Thursday, you and your partner might decide to learn something new together. Consider a class, workshop or even a webinar. Intellectual stimulation will bring you closer in every way possible.
With the Moon touring your 8th House of Intimacy from Monday through Wednesday afternoon, you may feel deep desires stirring inside of you that will be impossible to ignore. Perhaps you’re longing to be with someone, but your fear of rejection keeps you from initiating any potentially meaningful contact. Or, it’s possible that you’re in a relationship but feel extremely vulnerable about revealing too much too fast. The Moon in this part of your chart will help break down your walls. Surrender.
Your emotional focus will be on relationships between Monday and Wednesday, thanks to the Moon touring your 7th House of Partnership. During these days you may forge a deeper connection with your mate — or at least you’ll try. One thing is certain: You’ll have an almost intuitive grasp on what your sweetheart is feeling early in the week. Use it to nurture your bond rather than make your lover feel exposed. On Thursday, you and your love can expect a magnificent and socially fulfilling adventure. Wonderful!

Leonid Meteor Shower 2013: How To See ‘Shooting Stars’ This Weekend
The Huffington Post By Sara Gates
Get ready to see some “shooting stars” this weekend, skywatchers.
The 2013 Leonid meteor shower is expected to be visible from Nov. 16 through Nov. 18. Weather permitting, observers around the world should be able to see the brightest “Leonids” streak across the sky from Saturday night through Sunday morning. The Northern Hemisphere will be treated to the prime show, as it has the best view of the constellation Leo, from which the meteor shower derives its name.
Unfortunately, this year’s Leonid meteor shower will not be as visible as the show has been in the past years. Since the moon turns full on Nov. 17 — in the midst of the shower — only the brightest of the meteors will be apparent to most watchers. For some, the “shooting stars” may not be detectable at all. Read More…

Good Morning, my sweets! How are you doing today? I must say I actually got some sleep and I feel great!!! I haven’t pulled such late nights in I don’t know how long. Friday night, I was up till 4 in the morning. Saturday, I went to bed a little earlier, 3:15. Yesterday, I slept late and then finally nailed the graphics I wanted to use for the site. I think I got it done and bed by 1:00. Tonight I will pass out and miss my favorite show, “The Black List.” If you haven’t seen it, it is a great show. Ok, back to the graphics and the message on the front page….Do you approve of the message? Did I get our point across? I haven’t received any feedback so I guess I did. But I won’t know till I actually hear from a few of you. If I left anything out, let me know and I will find a way to put it in.
Next, if you will notice I added a third item to the raffle this month. Since there is more wholesalers, there is more to play with, lol! Personally, I would love to have that crystal ball. I will probably end up buying one before it is over with. I have to say, you are getting the better deal than I will. But, I need your input. What kind of items are you interested in being raffled off? Let me know what you would like to bid on and I will do my best to get it. The pendulum is pretty nice too (just thought I would throw that in).
So I need some help from you. I need to hear from you. HELP!
Since I know I will be hearing from you soon and my mind is now at ease…..I am off to work.
Have a very super day and a very Blessed Week,
Luv & Hugs,
Romantic matters may run from hot to cold this week, thanks to two very different cycles at play. First, Venus will be at a gorgeous trine to Jupiter on Thursday, allowing love to flow in the most open, sensitive way. Flattery and lavish gifts might be par for the course! If you’re planning to wine and dine anyone, Thursday will certainly be the day to do it! By the weekend, however, love becomes rocky as Venus and Mars lock horns in a testy square. Pride and power struggles take over and sweet sentiments might be lost amidst a clash of egos. Pick your battles and remember: Every rose has its thorn.
You might work so hard talking up your lover to relatives this week that you fail to take an honest look at any holes in your relationship. On Thursday, you’ll certainly see the best in your mate. You might even talk about sharing household expenses or purchasing a home together down the road if you don’t already live together. On Saturday, however, all of your idealism may go out the window when you’re likely to become frustrated with the way in which your lover handles finances. There could be a stalemate.
With Venus in your 7th House of Intimate Partnerships until October 7, you have a special focus on love that will attract greater harmony and personal happiness. You’ll notice this trend on Thursday, when Venus will embrace Jupiter, the planet of abundance, now in your 3rd House of Communication. Expressing your love and devotion to someone close has never been easier. Remember your heartfelt words, however, because by Saturday you might experience a test. Venus will rub elbows with Mars in your 4th House of Home and Family Life. A domestic squabble may put a damper on romance.
This week you may find it easy to wear your heart on your sleeve. The Moon will be in Gemini and your 1st House of Identity on Tuesday and Wednesday. This cosmic lineup will allow you to express emotions easily — which may bring a welcome change of pace to your usual style of logic first. On Thursday, Venus will be at a brilliant trine to Jupiter, helping to weave a magnetic spell between you and someone at the office. Will you succumb? Or will you try to ignore those butterflies in your stomach?
Romance seems to flow effortlessly for you these days. With Venus in your 5th House of True Love until October 7, you certainly have an edge when it comes to attracting someone your way. On Thursday, you may feel as if you’ve won the cosmic jackpot of love. Venus will be at a perfect trine to Jupiter, now in your sign. Delicious, sentimental, emotionally available amour will be yours for the taking. Whipped cream optional. On Saturday, however, a wrinkle in your romantic bliss might come up if you lose sight of a financial obligation in order to spend big and impress your lover. Think twice.
With Venus in your 4th House of Home and Family Life, you’re more interested in making sure your lover fits in with your security needs these days. This might mean nesting at home together quietly, or it might have more to do with testing the waters to ensure that your sweetheart fits in with your clan. If he or she does, you’ll be golden; but if there’s any conflict, you might feel stuck in the middle. Ask yourself: Who defines your true state of security? Regardless of your relationship status, that power should belong to no one else but you.
Whether you’re single or attached, your social life may be the key to romantic happiness this week. On Thursday, Venus, in your 3rd House of Communication, will be at a perfect trine to Jupiter, in your 11th House of Social Networking. You might enjoy a group activity, party or other event with your lover. You may also join a few friends at a social gathering and meet someone who stimulates your mind and heart! On Saturday, remain cautious with the words you choose. An acerbic remark to someone close might sting far more than intended.
Your self-worth is tied to partnership under ordinary circumstances, but this week you may feel as if this is especially true. On Saturday, Venus, now in your 2nd House of Possessions, will be at a tense square to Mars, the ruler of your partnership sector. You might feel as if your partner doesn’t value you as much as they should, and if so this might lead to an angry confrontation. Alternatively, you may try to sweep your feelings under the rug in an attempt to avoid conflict. That approach will only backfire.
With Venus still moving through your 1st House of Self until October 7, you’ll continue to enjoy a certain kind of sex appeal. On Thursday, you may find that you attract someone your way who is from a background quite unlike your own. This may be cultural, religious or educational. Regardless, you’ll feel enamored because of the differences. On Saturday, as Venus squares off with Mars, you might feel frustrated over having to choose between having fun versus taking care of a professional obligation. Do the right thing.
This will be an ideal week to carve out time for yourself in order to consider a decision in your personal life. On Thursday, Venus, now in your 12th House of Privacy, will be at a perfect angle to Jupiter, your ruler. You’ll find a way to untangle romantic knots before you get caught up in them. Will you take your own advice? The test will be on Saturday, as Venus and Mars square off. Don’t be your own worst enemy when it comes to love. If things get sticky, hold on to your moral high ground.
The week may start out looking bright when it comes to blending your social and romantic life. However, you’ll want to remain cautious by the weekend. On Thursday, Venus and Jupiter will be at a friendly angle, allowing your partner to be generous and gracious in the company of your pals. On Saturday, though, there will be a swift change as Venus squares off with Mars in your 8th House of Shared Resources. A friend might overstep his or her boundaries and meddle in your finances. Your partner will not be pleased.
This week — especially on Tuesday and Wednesday — your emotional focus will certainly be on romance. That’s because the Moon will be in your 5th House of True Love, encouraging you to seek pleasure and joy with someone special. But things may get dicey on Saturday if you’re in a relationship. You’ll want to impress the boss with your work on a project, so you might decide to bring work home for the weekend. Instead of receiving support from your mate, however, you’re more likely to get an attitude.
On Thursday, you and your lover may decide to book that exotic vacation you’ve been talking about taking together. There will be plenty of romantic energy and wanderlust in the air for you, thanks to the Moon moving through your 5th House from Thursday afternoon through Saturday. In addition, Venus — now in your 9th House of Long Distance Travel — will be at a magnificent trine to Jupiter, now in your 5th House of True Love. Don’t allow a hiccup with your work schedule dampen your mood on Saturday. Make plans — and stick with them!
