The Sun

The Sun is an invitation to a supportive relationship in which you can be yourself around your significant other. You feel relaxed and loved, with a sense of peace of heart. You’ve struck gold and entered into a new realm. Keep looking if this is not how you feel because it is how things should be. You can’t expect improvement in a long-term union if you do not take effective steps to create it.

The Judgment card represents a sexual awakening, and now that you aren’t afraid to move in a new direction, a whole new world awaits you. What sex positions do you want to try, and which fantasies have you been dying to act out? Being honest with yourself and potential partner(s) about the details of what you desire will help you get what you want faster, and the end result will be much more satisfying. And above all, enjoy your sexual liberation!

Your Ogham Reading for Monday, November 5, 2018

 

Fearn-Alder

The third letter of the Ogham alphabet is Fearn it means alder-tree. Alder-bark has been used by many cultures to treat various health problems and disorders, everything from insect bites to tuberculosis. Alder is a very water resistant hardwood and is often used in foundations where water is present. The key points to remember with alder are confidence, shielding, guidance, and standing up to ones enemies. Just as water stands no chance against alder, your enemies are at a loss when you have the protection of the alder.

Fortune – Drawing this Ogham is a sign to remain true to yourself and resist all temptation!

 

 

Huathe-Hawthorn

The Celts often believed the hawthorn to be a portal to the Otherworld. The hawthorn is a hardy plant commonly used for hedges and great firewood. It can even be an invasive species at times. The key points to remember with the letter Huathe are obstacles, walls, and obstructions. Its ability to form a natural wall gives the diviner an idea in what this symbol can mean to them and their lives.

Fortune – To overcome obstacles and walls you must make a personal sacrifice, to gain we must lose something of ourselves!

 

 

Ura-Heather

The beauty of heather flowers is one reason it is associated with the Irish Goddess of love, fertility, and new growth. Be happy when you draw this letter because it denotes love, companionship, and passion. Whether it will be a new love or an old love rekindled, Ura is a powerful symbol and one that may bring great luck in your love life.

Fortune – This Ogham deals in matters of Love. Whether it is new love or rekindling of old love, enjoy the peace and love that comes with Ura!

Earth Sky News for November 5: Waning moon and Venus November 4 to 6

On the mornings of November 4, 5 and 6, 2018 – perhaps after staying out late or getting up early to look for Taurid meteors – let the waning crescent moon help guide your eye to the planet Venus at morning dawn.

Venus is the brightest planet, so you can see it very near the sunrise glare. It only entered the morning sky – passing between us and the sun – on October 26, 2018. So in early November, Venus is still extremely low in the eastern sky just before sunrise. It’s very near the sunrise point. We in the Northern Hemisphere have an advantage in viewing Venus before dawn at this time of year. It’s autumn for us, and the autumn angle of the ecliptic – or path of the sun, moon and planets – with respect to the morning horizon is always very steep. This means Venus will be above the sunrise, rather than to one side of it, as seen from this hemisphere. And that fact will make Venus easier to spot.

Find an unobstructed eastern horizon, and, if you have binoculars, bring them along. Venus will be higher up and easier to view in the morning sky as the month progresses. Each day throughout November 2018, this blazing beauty of a planet will rise sooner before sunrise and will brighten all the while.

Although Venus will be a fixture of the morning sky until mid-August 2019, it’ll shine at its brightest in late November and early December 2018, as the morning “star.”

At mid-northern latitudes, Venus rises roughly one hour before sunrise by around November 4. By the month’s end, Venus will rise some three hours before the sun.

At temperate latitudes in the Southern Hemisphere, Venus rises about one hour before sunup on or near November 6. By late November, Venus will rise two hours before the sun.

Bottom line: Venus has only now returned to the east before dawn. It’s very low in the sky as dawn breaks. You just might be lucky enough to catch the moon and Venus before daybreak on the mornings of November 4-6, 2018.

Read Your Zodiac Sign’s Tarotscope: Week of November 5

Read what’s in the cards for your sign this week!

Welcome to the week of November 5! Each week a card will be pulled for your zodiac sign, offering the guidance and insight needed to maximize your opportunities and avoid any obstacles headed your way. Reveal the message the Tarot has for YOU now!

Aries Tarotscope (March 21 – April 19)

Your card for the week: Queen of Cups

The Queen of Cups indicates emotional maturity, compassion, and a nurturing spirit. This week you are being called to express this energy in some way. Perhaps a friend approaches you with relationship troubles, or it could be that a colleague is coming to you for support with a problem they’re facing. When this happens, listen from the heart as they speak but remain emotionally separated from the issue. While it may be tempting to dive head-first into the situation with them, understand that only they can work themselves out of their predicament.

 

Taurus Tarotscope (April 20 – May 20)

Your card for the week: Knight of Pentacles

Have you had your head in the clouds recently? The Knight of Pentacles is urging you to come back down to Earth this week and apply effort to your ideas this week. Maybe you’ve been suffering from a case of “all talk and no action.” Alternately, you could be putting off your day-to-day responsibilities in favor of more exciting offers. No matter what your situation, you’re being encouraged to create a plan of action or stick to a routine as progress is best achieved through discipline.

 

Gemini Tarotscope (May 21 – June 20)

Your card for the week: 6 of Wands

Victory is yours this week! The 6 of Wands is a card of resolution and honor. It’s indicating that not only have you worked hard and achieved your goals, but you’re starting to gain recognition because of them. Have you gotten praise from higher ups at your company for your efforts on a project? Have you put a new health regime into place and others are taking notice? Soak it in. You may be inclined to brush off this kind of recognition, but now is not the time to bashful. It’s OK to be acknowledged for your achievements, so bask in this moment.

 

Cancer Tarotscope (June 21 – July 22)

Your card for the week: Ace of Pentacles

The Ace of Pentacles is signaling that an abundance of new opportunities in your material world are emerging for you this week. Have you been feeling stalled in you career? Has an investment not paid off the way you thought it would? Have you been unable to make money from an idea you had? That could all change now! Keep your eyes and ears peeled as a new beginning in any of these areas could be just around the corner. Whether you decide to take advantage of them is up to you, but they will be there for the taking.

 

Leo Tarotscope (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Your card for the week: 10 of Swords

The 10 of Swords acknowledges you are going through a painful time right now. Perhaps you’ve been betrayed, or it could be you’re experiencing a period of things crashing down on you. These types of experiences are never pleasant to go through, but this week you’re being called to focus on the new beginning that this ending can make way for. Even though you may feel like you’ve hit rock bottom, take solace in the fact that there’s nowhere else to go but up. Remember, obstacles can be opportunities in disguise.

 

Virgo Tarotscope (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Your card for the week: 6 of Cups

The 6 of Cups is about the past impacting the present. This week, you’re being called to examine whether or not you’re tethered to your past in some way. While it’s true we sometimes need to look in the rearview mirror as a way of informing current or future decisions, we can easily become stuck living in the past if we’re not careful. Don’t let nostalgia or distorted memories prevent you from making progress and appreciating what’s happening in the here and now. Allow your past to be a source of improvement rather than a source of stagnation.

 

Libra Tarotscope (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Your card for the week: The Lovers

You could be facing a major decision this week! This situation may be presenting a moral dilemma for you, and The Lovers card represents needing to becoming clearer on what your values and beliefs are before determining how to proceed. Do you feel compelled to go a certain direction based on fears or feelings of guilt? Don’t let those things become motivating factors. Instead, try to understand that every action has a reaction and decisions such as these are never easy. Stay true to yourself — you can’t go wrong.

 

Scorpio Tarotscope (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Your card for the week: Knight of Wands

The Knight of Wands is an impulsive card, indicating feelings of restlessness that can lead to turbulence in your life. This week, you’re being asked to look at a decision you’re facing and consider the consequences of acting in haste. You may have been ready to choose which path to take, but perhaps you should take a second look before you leap. This isn’t an easy thing to do when you’re excited about something, but this card serves as a reminder that a well-laid plan makes for long-term success.

 

Sagittarius Tarotscope (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Your card for the week: The Chariot

The Chariot is a card that encourages willpower, action, and self-control. This week, you’re being asked to step into your power and bravely take the reins as you propel yourself toward a goal you have. This is no time to passively wait for good things to happen to you. This card knows that anything worth having requires hard work and discipline. By strapping on your emotional and mental armor, you allow yourself to charge into your future, undeterred by whatever obstacles pop up along the way.

 

Capricorn Tarotscope (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Your card for the week: 2 of Cups

The 2 of Cups recognizes that partnership is going to be center stage for you this week. This could be someone you’re romantically linked to, or this could be a professional ally. Even though the relationship you have with this person is still in the early stages, it has the potential to grow into something that will benefit the both of you long-term. Spend time cultivating this partnership, while also rejoicing in the fact that your combined forces and mutual admiration will take you both far.

 

Aquarius Tarotscope (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Your card for the week: Queen of Swords

Get ready to sit high upon your throne this week! The Queen of Swords is incredibly perceptive, embodying an intellectual sharpness and maturity that helps her tune out the noise of emotion and outside opinion. You could be facing a decision now or in the near future, and this card is serving as a reminder to rely on your logic and to look at all the facts before proceeding. You have an abundance of experience and wisdom that you can draw upon, so make sure to utilize it.

 

Pisces Tarotscope (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Your card for the week: Temperance

Temperance is a card of balance and moderation. Receiving this card signifies a need to keep a more go-with-the-flow attitude, practicing patience and adaptability as best you can. Perhaps you’ve been resisting a change in your life or letting a stressful situation get the best of you. If this is the case, change your approach this week. Allow things to slide off your back instead of meeting them with resistance. By finding your inner balance, you set yourself up to find your outer balance once again.

Tarot Card of the Day for November 5 is Ten of Fire

Ten of Fire

November 5, 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 This suit, most often called “Wands” and sometimes called “Rods” or “Staves,” represents initiative, ambition, drive and desire. This is the suit of enterprise and risk-taking.

The Ten of this suit represents an all-out effort, an obsessive commitment to a task which demands everything you’ve got. The person shown in decks with pictures is in no position to rest until he makes it inside the stout walls of the well-defended castle in the distance. If he fails, he will become prey for the highway robbers after dark.

It doesn’t matter that he’s overloaded and underfed. With this card, you have to do whatever it takes to get to completion — nothing can be allowed to interfere.

Your Zodiac Sign’s Biggest Stress Triggers

Find out your zodiac sign’s areas of anxiety


With the rapid pace of modern life, stress is a given. Unless you’ve reached nirvana and left the cares of the world behind, you’re bound to get tense from time to time. Some things are universal stressors: ill health, financial problems, and traffic jams when you’re already late. However, what bothers a Gemini (everyone else is so slow!) is quite different from what gets to a Virgo who’s trying to fix everything, or a Cancer who’s struggling to feel safe. What stresses you out the most, and what can you do about it?

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You count on your dynamic Ram energy to get you through the day, and feel vulnerable when it runs out. Especially when you’re down or ill, you feel overwhelmed and stress about all the tasks you can’t accomplish. You’re used to playing Superman or Superwoman, and forget to take time off and be a lazy slug. Be religious about setting aside at least one full day a week to play or do nothing. Life will continue without you!

 

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

More than anything else, Taurus, you want to be seen as competent. That’s why you take your time to do things right. When a difficult task looms, you fear you won’t have enough time to do it properly and might mess it up. As a peacemaker, you also stress when you’ve hurt someone’s feelings or can’t resolve a dispute. Fall back on your infallible instincts and trust that your true worth and honesty will ultimately prevail.

 

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

You don’t suffer fools, Gemini. When the car in front of you pulls a bone-headed move in traffic, your stress-o-meter hits the roof. And, little things get to you — like words being mispronounced or misspelled. You’re apt to blow a gasket dealing with slow or stubborn people, where you feel like you’re talking to a wall. You need regular activities that calm your overactive mind, like yoga or throwing pots in a ceramics class.

 

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Feeling unsafe is a sure ticket to stress for you. The Crab puts up a front that makes you seem tougher than you really are, so others don’t realize how deeply you’re affected by criticism, angry outbursts or being ignored. You often swallow your feelings — it’s vital to let people know what you need instead of retreating into your shell and nursing a stress-related ulcer. Breathe into your belly: your true security lies there.

 

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Any situation where you’re not in control and don’t know what to do is your stress trigger, Leo. A computer breakdown can send you from zero to freak-out in no time flat. Not being able to find something you’ve lost could also fry your circuits. Even falling in love can fill you with raging hormones and vulnerabilities that turn your kingly or queenly self into an insecure child. Let go and accept what is: you’ll be much happier.

 

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You think too much, Virgo — which accounts for your greatest stress. Just the thought of attempting something new and unfamiliar can tie you in knots, but once you’re actually doing it, you’re fine. Making lists will help. You also stress when someone you love is struggling or in pain. Rather than trying to fix things for others, utilize your powerful visualization skills to imagine a positive outcome — then trust that all is well.

 

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Not being treated fairly is very stressful for you, Libra. You’ll spend hours weighing the pros and cons of confronting someone — so much so, you can even make yourself sick! Rather than seething in silence or overreacting defensively, respond calmly in the moment. Keep it short and sweet and curb the long-winded speeches or accusations. You’ll get better results once people know where you stand. An uncluttered environment will also keep you serene.

 

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Others don’t realize how sensitive you are, Scorpio, because you hide it well. Yours is a quiet strength — so loud yelling and noise in general can quickly stress you out. You also feel tense and nervous when you don’t get enough privacy. Deadlines are another source of stress for you: you’d rather take your time than rush to finish things. Be sure people know your needs and boundaries so you can negotiate what works for all.

 

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You’re all about movement, Sagittarius, so sitting in traffic is your own personal hell. You’re also not big on formal events or business meetings where you have to act properly and “behave” according to corporate culture. Any situation that reins you in, like a partner pressuring you for a commitment or a boss demanding you punch in at a time clock, can trigger stress. Make sure you get enough time outdoors to feed your restless spirit so you won’t feel so constrained.

 

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You demand a lot from yourself, Capricorn. And, you feel pressured when you fail to live up to your high expectations. You can end up going over the “what ifs” or “if onlys” of life ’til you’re all lathered up, asking questions that can’t be answered or longing for what you can’t have. The remedy is to live in the moment, the only place where joy can be found. And, be sure there’s plenty of time to relax in your hectic day.

 

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Though “live and let live” is your motto, Aquarius, you really like to have your way. You get frustrated when you can’t justify doing what you want without a good reason. Nor can you abide people who try to bend your will to theirs. Already high-strung, you become stressed by the pressures of time, and often feel there’s not enough of it. Yet ironically, by slowing down you’ll actually get more done and feel more relaxed.

 

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

You’re a very private person, Pisces, so public speaking or other situations in which you feel exposed can be stressful. Subtlety is your strong suit; you feel unnerved by loud music and crass people. And, you get nervous or even sick because you don’t know how to shield yourself from invasions. Adopt the attitude “This too shall pass,” and be sure you’re getting plenty of time alone to process your emotions and clear your slate.

Get a Jump On Tomorrow, Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, Nov. 6th

Free daily horoscope for each star sign from renowned Astrologer Kelli Fox. Forecasts for the week ahead in life, love and career.

Aries

March 21- April 19

High energy continues coursing through your veins today, making for some very interesting — and sometimes tricky — situations. It’s a great time for some one-on-one intensity with your sweetheart or a vigorous workout at the gym. But conversations and teamwork can be iffy for you now. If you feel yourself getting all worked up over something, take a deep breath, count to ten and remind yourself to play nice.

Taurus

Battles of wills are possible today, because you’re feeling a strange cocktail of intense emotions, including jealousy, stubbornness and possessiveness — a potent combination. You may not realise it, but you’re behaving in a controlling way, and that’s setting off the people around you. Make an effort to cooperate instead of bossing other people around, Taurus. It’s time to focus on the good things in life, which normally comes naturally to you.

Gemini

May 21-June 21

A thinker by nature, you tend to intellectualise your feelings, especially if they’re particularly strong or strange. But sometimes, it’s best to let your true feelings wash through you, even if they don’t make any sense at all. This is one of those days, Gemini. Feel your feelings deeply. Don’t judge them — and definitely don’t act on them, because they could change in a flash. Just sit with them until they pass though.

Cancer

June 22-July 22

If you’re involved in a relationship of any sort, today could present some beautiful and intense moments for you and your partner — or you could find yourselves locked in a battle that’s both overwhelming and confusing. Obviously, you should strive for the former! Focus on what you love and respect about each other. If you’re on your own, turn that sense of love and trust toward yourself. Create positive energy by honouring yourself, Cancer.

Leo

July 23-August 22

It’s good to look deeply within yourself and increase your self-awareness, but don’t be hard on yourself during that vulnerable process. Old, irrational insecurities could bubble to the surface today, and if you aren’t prepared for them, you could spend the day in a serious funk. Be proactive about this. Talk your issues over with a trusted friend or therapist. See if you can find the light at the end of the tunnel.

Virgo

August 23-September 22

It’s a good day to analyse your emotions, or to help a friend understand theirs. Look deeply into things that interest you now, and notice the nuance in human relationships. You may discover that you’re feeling things you didn’t expect, or that you’re experiencing certain insecurities. If so, take a compassionate view of them. Treat yourself as you would a good friend who came to you for advice and support.

Libra

September 23-October 22

You’re ardently passionate about someone or something today. These feelings could easily become obsessive, which may or may not be a bad thing. If you’re immersing yourself in a creative work or a healthy relationship, then have fun with the intensity of feeling. But if you’re feeling drawn toward someone who isn’t appropriate for you, remind yourself that feelings change quickly. Try not to do anything you’ll regret later.

Scorpio

October 23 – November 22

Suddenly, you’re thrust into the role of therapist or confidant for all your friends. Even perfect strangers may seem drawn to your obvious intelligence and keen eye for the motivations behind people’s behaviour. And the truth is, you like filling this role. There’s little that you find more interesting than human nature. And helping your friends through rough spots in their lives is one of the best, most positive uses of your personal talents.

Sagittarius

November 23-December 20

Everyone around you seems moody and dramatic today. Most people are feeling a little stressed out in general, even if nothing particularly bad is happening. Your best bet is to laugh off any sticky situations that arise, and tap into the passionate side of this energy. This can be romantic or creative passion, or even passion for a book you’re reading or a course you’re taking. It’s up to you!

Capricorn

December 21-January 19

Other people’s emotional displays seem especially dramatic today. They’re behaving irrationally, and you can see right through their tactics, such as tantrums, the cold shoulder, jealousy, martyrdom and more. But try not to be too judgmental of their behaviour. Withdrawing emotionally isn’t a good idea now, either. It’s okay to get worked up about things sometimes, you know. Processing your feelings helps you move past them. Maybe this is necessary now.

Aquarius

January 20-February 18

You might have the cool-as-a-cucumber act down pat, but your closest friends know how passionate you are when it comes to your interests and your intimate relationships. Indulge in that passion today. Pursue a subject as far as you can take it, or lose yourself in a deep metaphysical conversation that challenges the way you normally view the world’s possibilities. Turn secrets into moments of delicious discovery.

Pisces

February 19-March 20

Yesterday’s intense emotions continue today. These could range from longing to melancholy to passion and beyond. But whatever you’re feeling, it’s impossibly sweet, because this is you in your most intense and distilled form: a creature of pure emotion. Just remember that feelings are subjective. In a day or two, or even an hour or two, yours are likely to change. Enjoy this ride, but don’t take it too seriously.

Monday’s Birthday Horoscopes, Born on the 5th of November

Happy Birthday ...
Born with a healthy portion of self-esteem, you have no problem going after what you want in the world — and getting it!

If you were born on November 5, you could get away with murder! The manner in which you carry yourself is alluring and magnetic to anyone who encounters you, and by the time they hear your thoughts and opinions, they’re a goner! You’ve got ’em. Your brain and your confidence make for one powerful combination. Whether you flaunt your irresistible demeanor or not, be aware that you must be more socially conscience than others. Make sure you use your weapon ethically and for good, not evil.

At your best: Bewitching, intelligent, mysterious
At your worst: Isolated, unaware, threatening

More About Scorpio

Uh oh … did we let the cat out of the bag? Scorpio, we know that you treasure your privacy and enjoy being mysterious, but really — can you at least reveal that it’s your birthday? You’ve got so many incredible qualities to celebrate and the people who love you truly want to honor you on this special day.

The Calm Before The Storm

Let’s take, for example, your incredible sense of calm and razor sharp ability to take care of those crisis-filled moments without even breaking a sweat. No other sign is as good in a traumatic situation as you are. In fact, the other, more easily frazzled souls out there tend to count on you to get them through life’s most tricky terrain. You’ve also got a penetrating ability to see right into the heart of anyone and instantly understand what makes them tick. A natural born psychologist, people may lean on you for emotional support — especially in times of catastrophe. If there’s anything you’re not, it’s superficial.

These qualities might, however, get in the way of anyone who tries to plan your surprise birthday bash. Why? Because you’re more likely than others to intuitively pick up on the unspoken vibes around you. In fact, you are known as one of the most psychic signs of the zodiac! Since few people have an ability to pull the wool over your eyes, Scorpio, you may have a tendency towards suspicion. Remember that an offensive approach to relationships will only lead to you attracting control and manipulation your way. When you go deep and surrender to trusting others … well that’s when your most amazing, healing energy shines.

Your Daily Horoscope for Monday, November 5

Free daily horoscope for each star sign from renowned Astrologer Kelli Fox. Forecasts for the week ahead in life, love and career.

 

Aries

March 21- April 19

It may be challenging to strike a compromise today, but that’s just the spirit you should go for. You prefer to be the leader, but sometimes it’s better to demonstrate that you’re one of the team. You might have to ‘fake it till you make it.’ But you can do it! Smile, nod and cooperate. This reduces tension for everyone, and makes them more open to following your lead in the future.

Taurus

If you try to pin someone down, they could become evasive. No one wants to rock the boat today — not even you. Which means lots of folks won’t give their true opinions. When you’re in mixed company, it’s best to avoid touchy subjects such as politics or spirituality. No one wants to sense tension in the group! Spend time with close friends now. It’s a relief when you can be yourself.

Gemini

May 21-June 21

People seem especially interesting today. Or maybe it’s just that your mind is more alive now than usual. Either way, conversations flow like a fast-moving river, and laughter soon follows. Your own words and thoughts are articulate and well-formed. It’s easy to slip into a kind of performance mode as you command a rapt audience. Enjoy this brief, invigorating influence! It’s a lot of fun to be so intellectually attuned.

Cancer

June 22-July 22

If a certain relationship or business partnership feels strained today, you may have to set aside your feelings in order to work through the issue. That could be tough for you to do, especially if your feelings are hurt. But being able to focus on what’s most important — working harmoniously together — shows an impressive level of maturity. And you’d much rather work together than have to strike out on your own.

Leo

July 23-August 22

At a party or on a date today, you’re the centre of the crowd. People find your ideas incredibly interesting. Or maybe you just deliver them in such a vibrant, engaging way! Business meetings go well, too. You’re thinking on your feet, with a high level of creativity. It’s a great day for doing imaginative work or bringing a team together. You can motivate people to unite under a common banner.

Virgo

August 23-September 22

Do your best to accommodate others’ needs and wishes today. Of course, you always do. You naturally take other people’s feelings into account, and you always help out when you can. That’s the perfect attitude for the current lunar energy. Cooperative action takes you where you want to go. And there are side benefits to being helpful, too. For one thing, people are more likely to support you when you need it!

Libra

September 23-October 22

You’re highly impressionable today. Each person you talk to is able to sway your point of view, simply by presenting theirs. Well, it’s not your fault that you relate to so many different perspectives! But it might be best to avoid decisive action today. Wait until your own position is clearer. There’s no reason you should have to make up your mind if you aren’t ready yet. Keep clarifying, Libra.

Scorpio

October 23 – November 22

Welcome to a pleasant, peaceful day. Time spent with friends or family should be harmonious. Intense emotional displays are no fun for anyone now, so avoid them if you can. That might mean making a special effort to choose your battles, including choosing to ignore minor irritations. Of course, you’ll have to talk out any bigger issues that come up. Do so with a level head and an eye for fairness.

Sagittarius

November 23-December 20

It’s a great day for brainstorming and networking. This is the true power of a group of people: Creative ideas start to flow, producing a wonderfully proactive energy. Soon, a project takes on a life of its own, and all you have to do is ride the wave. Be an inspiration to others in this first phase of generating ideas. Communicate your broad view. No idea is too great or too small.

Capricorn

December 21-January 19

You’re used to making decisions, even the tough ones that no one wants to make. But there are many different viewpoints to consider today. This makes it a lot harder to put your foot down without second-guessing yourself. If you have to decide soon, try to do what you know is right. Otherwise, keep an open dialogue with other people. See if you can find a way to accommodate everyone’s wishes.

Aquarius

January 20-February 18

Spending time alone doesn’t hold nearly as much appeal today as connecting with other people. Accept any invitations you receive, or host your own impromptu gathering. Conversation is stimulating and laughter flows easily now. It’s a great day for a little romance, too! Spending time with a friend or someone special just feels right. It promotes a sense of togetherness, an awareness that we’re all in this together.

Pisces

February 19-March 20

Build free time into your schedule today. You’re in the mood to gather with friends and loved ones. In fact, it’s tough to be alone! If you’re stuck solo at home or the office, a lonely mood could settle in. In that case, dispel the gloom by calling a friend or IM-ing a coworker. In this day and age, there’s no need to be alone if you don’t want to!
