Daily Horoscope 11/18/2015--Free to Imagine

Good Morning Friends,

Neptune is moving forward today! This planet has been moving backwards in the Sky for the last 5 months. When a planet moves backwards, we begin to feel its effects on more of an internal and reflective level. Neptune represents imagination, and tells us not to get bogged down by the details. So, while he was moving backwards, we were being called to look over the areas of life that we may have been deceiving ourselves—we had to reflect over where we had lost touch with reality. Neptune goes retrograde every single year, and this marks a time in which we have an opportunity to refine our dreams. Once Neptune goes direct we have a greater understanding of how to make our dream a reality, and we are able to start using our imaginations again. With Neptune going direct today, it is time to call on your higher vision yet again, and image your ideal life. This is a particularly blessed occasion, because right now we have Saturn speaking with Neptune, which will help ensure that we don’t lose sight of reality during this process. Neptune is telling that it is ok to dream big, while Saturn is showing how to make those dreams come true.

This will impact sign differently, so I advise playing closest attention to the section for you Rising Sign. If you do not know your Rising Sign, then I encourage you to click here to calculate your free Birth Chart. Enjoy!

Daily Horoscope 11/17/2015--Sensory Overload

Good Morning Friends,

We have three events worth noting occurring in the Cosmos today. The Moon is entering the Sign of Aquarius, allowing us let some of our walls down. The last couple of day she was hanging out in Capricorn, which can be a fairly rigid sign for the soft and flowing Moon. If you have been very focused over the last couple of days, then now may be a time to relax just a bit. It is a good time to reach out to the people you care about, especially considering the moon is speaking with Venus in a very friendly conversation.

We also have Mercury meeting the Sun in the sign of Scorpio. These two never travel too far apart in the Sky, but it is fairly rare for them to be this close together. This event signifies a prime opportunity for self-expression, and can be a time of heightened mental clarity. Being in the detective-like sign of Scorpio, I suspect that collectively we will be seeing a lot impressive investigative work surfacing in the media today. We also likely will see some deep and insightful literary works forming amongst us. If you find yourself having sudden moments of clarity, it will be wise to record them.

The last major event we have occurring today is Neptune standing still in the Sky, getting ready to start moving forward after a long period of moving backwards motion. This is indicative of a flood—both literally, and metaphorically. Neptune is associated with Water, so frequently when this Planet does anything particularly significant, we notice a lot of rain. Metaphorically speaking, this can signify a flood of emotions. Sensitivity runs high today, and with all of the tragedies that have recently taken place, it is likely we will be observing a public outcry of sentiments. Very strong emotionally-charged opinions may be coming at us from every direction. Today will be a test in our ability to remain centered in a world that is becoming increasingly polarized

As always, the Sky will speak to each sign differently, and I recommend paying closest attention to the section for your Rising Sign. If you Do Not know your Rising Sign, then I encourage you to click here to calculate your free Birth Chart. Otherwise, just read the section for your Sun Sign. Enjoy!

 

Aries: Many Aries are going to find a deeper sense of connection with their partner today, and will likely feel a that they share a mission or purpose with the person they love. If you are single, you may find that a friendship is starting to show the signs of becoming something more. Your sign is one that definitely will be feeling the detective energy at play, and you may find that you have a sharp focus and insight. You are very plugged into the collective unconscious right now, and you may be feeling overwhelmed by other people’s feelings. It will be important to either cut emotional cords to protect yourself, or to channel your sensitivities into a project that will help others.

Taurus: There is a strong chance that many Taureans will be bonding with someone they work with—possibly romantically. Others will be feeling an emotional connection with the work itself. There is also a chance that people at work are starting to complement you based on a new fitness regimen you’ve started. At any rate, expect to have a good day at work. If someone--especially someone you are close to—offers you advise today, it is likely very sound and useful. Some Taureans will be feeling a heightened emotional connection to their friends right now, and may feel somewhat overwhelmed by them. Others will embrace this increased compassion, and feel a deeper bond with their friends.

Gemini: You are likely feeling a subtle shift towards philosophical or spiritual matters, and will find that it is quite enjoyable to express your beliefs in an artistic or otherwise creative project. Your mind is incredibly sharp right about now, and it is an excellent time for coming up with a clear plan of action for work related matters. Now is a time to gain clarity about the vision you have for your Career and life purpose.

Some of you are considering the costs associated with moving in with your significant other. Today is excellent for creative projects, you may want to channel this creative inspiration into the decorating project that you are likely planning for your home. Many of you will be experiencing a deep connection with your spirituality or philosophical beliefs. It is also likely that many Cancer’s may experience travel delays if they were planning on flying somewhere today.

Leo: Today is a day for heartfelt interactions with that special someone. You may find that your partner is saying just the right things. If you are single, then today may be a good day for connecting with someone online. Just be sure that can video chat with them, because todays sky has the potential for some catfishing to occur. This is a good time to get a detailed plan in order if you are planning any major changes on the home front. If you are planning on renovating, then get a clear outline of the changes you want to make, and budget appropriately. This also may be a good time to call your parents, as they very likely will have some wise words for you. If you have been applying for any kind of funding, then now is time that you absolutely should read the fine print before signing anything.

Virgo: A lot of Virgos may get news today which leaves them feeling hope about their goals for the future. It may be that you get a kudos from someone at work, that leaves you feeling accomplished. Others may see that their hard work is paying off financially. You have a major dose of mental clarity today Virgo, which can be used very beneficially towards your career. If you work in a field that involves writing or teaching in any way, then your work may just set you ahead of the pack in the eyes of your superiors. Where it comes to love, I see the potential for some pretty confusing interactions between you and you partner. You may find that your partner is distracting you from getting home-related projects accomplished. Others may just find their partner is especially sensitive right now.

Libra: The romance continues Libra! You are definitely feeling the butterflies right about now. In fact, this may be a time of some very heightened passions, if you know what I mean (wink, wink). Others may experience the energy of today as a time of increased creativity, and will be able to create some very impressive art. It is also a time of clarity where your finances are concerned. Many of you will be able to come up with a solution to any money related concerns you may have been experiencing. If you have been trying to keep something under wraps, then beware of the potential for the Freudian-Slip today. However, you may also decide that the secret is not worth keeping, and you might just decide that there is no need to keep quiet anymore.

Scorpio: Today is a good time to spend relaxing, and you may find that the home truly is where the heart is. There is also a strong likelihood that you can gain incredible amounts of clarity in regards to your career and overall life goals today. This may be the perfect time to spend at home, figuring out a plan for your life. You’re very insightful right now, and you should not waste this energy. Some of you may be able to creative some emotionally moving art, if you are so inclined. Others will be able to imagine a brighter future for themselves which may involve self-employment.   

Sagittarius: This may be a day of signing contracts or filling out paperwork. Many Sagittarians have been working hard to change career paths, and now things are really starting to materialize. You may not be feeling entirely assured about career matters yet, but clarity is just around the corner. Focus on finishing up paperwork, or making sure that you are up to date on all of your work-related skills. Some Sagittarians may experience Neptune’s stand-still in very literal ways, and may want to make sure that their home is not susceptible to leaks or flooding over the next few days. Others will experience Neptune in a more metaphorical and emotional way, and will be experiencing deep sensitivity at the core of their being.

Capricorn: Today may be a positive day in career matters Capricorn. You may get some good news at work that positively impacts your finances. You also may find that your relationships are able to help you make beneficial career moves. Others may be spending money on a gift for their partner. There is also a strong likelihood of having a renewed sense of clarity in regards to your dreams for the future. This could be that you find out you were approved for funding which will allow you to go back to school. However, I will say that you should make sure that you are analyzing any news you receive to today very carefully, to make sure you are interpreting it correctly. Lastly, you may find that a sibling; neighbor; or extended family member is being very sensitive. If this is the case it is probably best not to feed into it.  

Aquarius: Almost every major event taking place in the sky today is related to your career and work life Aquarius. You have a lot of work that you know you have to do, but some of you may find it a bit difficult to actually get it done. This problem can be alleviated by focusing on what makes you passionate about the work you are doing, and remembering your goals in life. You also have the potential to gain major clarity about career and life purpose today, if you choose to stay motivated. If you are in need of funding, this may be a time that you are able to think up the best course of action in that regard. I will advise against any major purchases at the moment, but it is a good time to start envisioning the purchases you plan on making in the future. You are going to have to be careful with your money for a while, but especially today.

Pisces: Your emotions are incredibly strong right now, and it may be clouding your judgement. The best way to regain your sense of clarity will be through connecting with a sense of spiritual grounding. If you are religious, then now is a time to connect with your god. If you are more inclined towards philosophy than religion, then now is when you need to be remembering your values. If you are not necessarily religious, but identify with spiritual principles, then focus your energy there. Astrology is also something that can help ground you right now as well. For those of you with children, it may be a good idea to keep a watchful eye on them to ensure they are on their best behavior.
