Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, Nov. 1

We are reminded of the differences between logic and imagination today as rational Mercury squares intuitive Neptune. This creative yet oftentimes confusing aspect comes on the heels of yesterday’s Venus-Neptune square, so our unrealistic desires are mixed with dreamy thoughts. However, the sensible Capricorn Moon helps us turn our fantasies into reality. The air begins to clear when the Moon shifts into intellectual Aquarius at 6:07 pm EDT.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You may not know what to do with the brilliant ideas that pop into your head today. Ironically, friends and coworkers become less convinced that your approach will work the more you try to explain it. They may agree with your position, but they’re not sure that you can transform your clever strategy into a practical plan. It won’t help to ramble on about what you will do. Save your long speeches for another time; for now, lead with actions rather than words.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You believe that you’re being very realistic, but you probably won’t have such a firm grip on reality today. At first you may persuade others that you’re in control, but you are more likely to confuse them as you contradict yourself later on. Although you’re able to explain a complicated concept now, it’s more challenging to just give simple directions. Be smart and let someone else temporarily hold the reins of control.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Your key planet Mercury is in its trickster mode today as it squares irrational Neptune. You may try to think clearly, but it’s challenging to finish sentences when your ideas float off into the mists of illusion and fantasy. Remember your analytical process is muddled now, so don’t be overly certain about what you know. Wait a couple of days before reconsidering your options.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You may be better off today by remaining as silent as possible. If you avoid saying too much, you can come out of a tangled emotional web appearing as if you are a real hero. Although it could be difficult to see both sides of a conflict now, you still realize that there’s no single straightforward solution. Pretending to have the answer will probably just create disappointment; your wisest strategy is to wait it out. If you have something crucial to add to the discussion, it will be even more relevant in a day or two.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

It’s very reassuring when your personal goals are consistent with your actual duties at work. However, it can be quite disconcerting now if they’re not. Your current situation may be complicated by a friend or business partner who isn’t communicating clearly. If you’re trying to finalize a decision, it would be better to have the support of those around you. Be patient; others will begin to cooperate more in the days ahead.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

This can be an unusual but exciting day when you’re more inclined to tell a story or write a poem than act in a fully rational manner. You want everyone to acknowledge how clever you are, but it isn’t easy to concentrate on details today. Don’t set yourself up for failure by trying to deliver something beyond your current capability. Give yourself permission to lose yourself in a daydream; you can always return to your work tomorrow.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your sign of The Scales symbolizes your commitment to seeking balance, even when it’s elusive. You might end up spinning your wheels today if you think you can use logic to find the calm center of the storm. But you won’t re-establish your center of gravity by keeping still; instead of sitting in a yoga pose, imagine that you are a figure skater in motion. Your easy grace arises from being one with the flow rather than trying to cling to the status quo.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You aren’t in the mood to argue with anyone who seems to know all the answers since you don’t feel the need to prove anything. However, it won’t help if you just walk away from a discussion simply because you’re afraid that a disagreement will ensue. Remember that it always takes two to create conflict. Demonstrate your wisdom by remaining clear about your facts and beliefs without having to compete with others.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You can turn a rather mundane day into an exciting one as long as you don’t attempt to resolve the dualistic way you approach life today. On one hand, you’re thinking like an analytical scientist, carefully observing your current situation in a cool and detached manner. But on the other hand, you’re like an artist, directly engaging your experiences by responding with a wide spectrum of emotions. Each method has something of value to offer, so tune in to your head and your heart at the same time without closing down either one.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You want to believe that your instincts won’t steer you wrong because the Moon is back in your pragmatic sign. However, you may have temporarily lost your ability to separate threads that are spun in your imagination from those that are woven with reality. Normally you are a champ at keeping fact and fiction distinct, yet now the fabric of life contains both. Don’t overanalyze what’s happening; just appreciate the magic of what you can create.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You are motivated to communicate the recent vague visions you’ve been having, but the more you try to describe them, the less others understand. Your thoughts are elusive and cannot easily fit into words, unless you have a particular spiritual discipline that helps you to frame your experience. Awakening your inner artist, poet or mystic, however, can help you explain the subtleties of your current perspective.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Logical Mercury is forming a creative square with your ruling planet Neptune, opening your imagination to realities that exist beyond the realm of language. This can be very confusing if you want to be specific in your communication today. Unfortunately, even the most basic ideas are slippery now. Instead of increasing your frustration by trying to manage too many details, put this kind of work off until tomorrow when your concentration returns.
