Others, in contrast, are milder, more subdued affairs. They take time to build and appreciate. In an ideal world wed achieve a balance between the two. If somethings getting on top of you, try to separate it from the calmer aspects of your life. Now that Mercurys moving forwards, you can rebalance, and find equilibrium. Your November forecast will be very rewarding. SCORPIO OCT 24NOV 22 Would you mind ticking the box below to indicate youve read and understood the terms and conditions before you continue? How many times have you been asked to do that recently? And do you ever actually read the small print? No, me neither. Of course, thats how they get you. Sometimes it seems that the more technologised our world becomes, the more room there is for scammers and fraudsters. You dont need to waste time on silly details today... but dont compromise your integrity. Novembers due to be amazing. TAURUS APR 21 MAY 21 Have you ever whiled away the hours playing Tetris? Its that electronic game where weird geometric shapes float down the screen and you have to place them in the best position. The more successful you are, the faster they fall and the harder it becomes. The game was popular because it emulated a pattern we recognise; as soon as weve solved one problem, another one looms behind it. They never seem to stop. You have the focus and ability to be able to achieve a satisfying result today. Your powerful prediction for November is ready. AQUARIUS JAN 21FEB 19 Home, home on the range, where the deer and the antelope play, where seldom is heard a discouraging word and the skies are not cloudy all day. Even though there are few people who live their lives surrounded by such creatures, these lyrics, from an old song, embody a feeling we all recognise. We all want to be somewhere where we feel secure and safe. Despite the current difficulties youre dealing with, an unfolding situation is taking you a step closer to a place where you feel at ease. Make your dreams come true in November. LEO JUL 24AUG 23 Im delighted youre here to read your prediction today. Having written forecasts for a good few years, I can tell when someones got something extra special about them. Of course, people born under the sign of Aries are all special; but some are exceptional. Yet, you know that already... dont you? Maybe you think these words are for someone else and that youre here under false pretences? Having more faith in your sense of entitlement will take you where you deserve to be today. A new month. A forecast that could transform your life. ARIES MAR 21APR 20 We all appreciate being shown gestures of support, even if they dont translate into hands-on assistance. We want to feel as if were being looked after. And sometimes, just knowing that someone cares about what were trying to achieve, can encourage and motivate us to push through barriers and find solutions. Although today, you might find yourself being asked to put your weight behind a cause that feels helpless, it could well turn out to be a constructive move that leads to valuable progress. November holds great potential for positive change. LIBRA SEP 24OCT 23 Ive never liked the phrase pet hate. While I understand the point people are trying to make, the mentality behind it seems somewhat misguided. After all, a pet is something we care for over a significant period of time. Why would we ever want to nurture something we dont like? The cuter the phrase, the more easily we get attached to negative behaviour patterns that hold us back. Today, the cosmos encourages you to dedicate yourself to something psychologically cute and cuddly. Theres so much to tell you about November. CANCER JUN 23JUL 23 Were fascinated by the great detective Sherlock Holmes because he sees straight through the obvious. Whats more, he does it in a way that makes it... well... obvious. In order to achieve such a level of perspicacity, we just need to tap into our creative, inquiring minds. Theres an issue (or a person) youre keen to discover more about. Youre looking for answers. As Mercury moves forwards, your creativity and intellect receive the boost you need to make an important discovery. Find out how to make this a month to remember. CAPRICORN DEC 22JAN 20 Just as cars need accelerators and brakes, we need hopes and fears. Its important, when driving along the metaphorical road that leads to success, to recognise the need for both while remembering never to use both at the same time. Now that your rulers heading forwards once again, you face a decision; will you allow the sense of growing excitement to fuel you forwards, or will you let your anxieties slow you down in anticipation of a problem? You need to make a choice today. GEMINI MAY 22JUN 22 Whats the point in going the long way round when theres a shortcut that looks as if it leads to your destination? Suppose the shortcut involves a steep, curvaceous incline that slows you down to snails pace, while the longer route is flat? You might decide that its wiser to take the first option. Today, rather than wasting your precious time and energy on an experimental process, it might be worth sticking with whats been tried and tested. The time to be adventurous is not far away. SAGITTARIUS NOV 23DEC 21 Exactly four Wednesdays from now, what will you be having for dinner? What do you mean you dont know? Thats rather risky, isnt it? Talk about leaving things to chance. But these days, arent most of us so caught up in the uncertainty of daily life that we find it almost impossible to think about what we may require in the future? Have faith in your ability to handle whatever today brings. Your reactions are fast and your knowledge is accurate. You can begin to set your sights further afield. Theres excellent news in your November prediction. VIRGO AUG 24SEP 23 How many times have you been caught out by one of those Absolutely-Everything-Must-Go, 75% off sales? Normally, if youre tempted by the hype, it turns out that the goods being sold are of poor quality, and arent worth the asking price. Even these days, items of high quality tend to (more or less) hold their price. And generally, we manage to find ways to pay for things we really want. Today, dont be tempted to undervalue yourself and sell yourself short. Your experience is worth a lot. Take advantage of Novembers exciting cosmic climate.
