WR 18 Nov 20181) Alchemy: Restraint
2) [R] Eight of Wands: Swiftness
3) [R] Four of Wands: Perfection
4) [R] Four of Cups: Mixed Emotions
5) Justice: Balance
6) [R] Mother of Wands: Creator
7) Father of Swords: Leadership

1: Creative Influence – Combining elements in precise measure; tailoring a solution after careful analysis of each phase of the problem; natural flow of life’s energy
2: Physical Influence – Hasty action brings negative results; bad news; complex & thorny issues
3: Emotional Influence – Obstacles cause delays; feeling uneasy & uncomfortable; moving in an unproductive direction
4: Mental Influence – Things are looking up; new solutions; finding a golden cup in surrounding rubble
5: Spiritual Influence – Scrutiny; things are being judged; all will turn out fair
6: Feminine Influence – Dangerous emotions; emotional manipulation for control; full of drama
7: Masculine Influence – Born leader; completes one thing to start another; active, forceful intellect

Analysis:
This is a good week for the more analytical forms of creative expression as inspiration flows through logical channels. Things become difficult & sluggish, we’re tempted to rush things along, but this is very likely to be a grave mistake. Problems present themselves in emotional situations, bringing with them delays, though it is unlikely that all progress is halted & perhaps the direction we’re moving in is not the most productive to our purposes. New pathways begin to open in our thought processes & we’re finding it easier to formulate strategies to deal with the various difficulties that have presented themselves this week. Perhaps we’re being judged for our beliefs, or we are looking at alternate paths, either way, the situation will resolve itself in a balanced & fair way. The feminine influence is dangerous during this time, she is likely to manipulate our emotions either covertly or overtly to control us for whatever ends she seeks. The masculine influence is in a good position to assist us, provided our goals are not at odds with his own as he will most likely win out, but aligned with him, he will lead us to victory.

DD Sun 18 Nov 2018[R] Strength: Confidence

Analysis:
This day feels overwhelming & filled with frustrations. We’re fumbling things & situations as we try to navigate our way. Finding it difficult to use what power we have in productive ways. It’s time to meditate & reconnect with ourselves & the sense of the larger systems to which we belong.

Born on Saturday, November 17
When it comes to friendships and love, quality is much more important than quantity. The people in your life will be yours for life.

If you were born on November 17, you are the bridge that brings everybody together! Logic, understanding, and genuine kindness are at the forefront of your mind and drive your desire for everyone to get along. If you have a chaotic family, a splintered group of friends, or a combative set of colleagues, you will strive to uncover a way for those around you to come together. This will make you a great leader! You'll bring unique people from different backgrounds and create a solid foundation of camaraderie for those you inspire! Just make to take care of yourself and your happiness first.

At your best: Mediating, helpful, responsible
At your worst: Controlling, desperate, aloof

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.

If You Were Born Today, November 17:

Although you have a talent for communicating, you are not necessarily an open book. Your personality is vibrant, and others notice you wherever you go. As emotional as you are, you prefer to present the strong side of your personality to others. You may readily discuss your personal past, but you are not one to whine about your life. You do have an interesting life story, no doubt about it, as you tend to attract change and even crisis into your life with your controlled yet powerful emotions. Your life is far from static, likely because your personality is very dynamic. Famous people born today: Danny DeVito, Grace Abbott, Martin Scorsese, Lauren Hutton, Gordon Lightfoot, Rock Hudson, Lorne Michaels.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!

You are likely to form new relationships or connections that further your spiritual growth or to enhance existing relationships with a spirit of camaraderie. People in authority regard you favorably. Events take place in which you feel like you are moving forward and growing into a new phase of your life.

Because Mercury forms a tense aspect with Neptune in your Solar Return chart this year, err on the side of caution if offers arrive that seem too good to be true. Some confusion or possibly deception could arise in communications this year, and you may be skipping important details without even realizing it. Watch for issues with avoidance and procrastination.

You are especially creative and expressive this year, and your feelings, affections, and love life may be especially animated. You succeed best in fields or areas that allow you to make something beautiful, attractive, and/or entertaining. Your personal appeal is excellent! You are playfully competitive and might win a major competition, if applicable.

Bursts of creativity and energy emerge at seemingly perfect times and help you to further your goals. Healthy risk-taking is likely this year, as you are more able to spot an opportunity when you see one. It is easier than usual to break free from habits that have previously held you back from going after what you want in life. Even so, you might often get frustrated if the results of your actions are not instant, but it’s best to cultivate some patience when it comes to realizing your goals. As well, if you are not getting the results you crave, consider that you might be aiming too high or too wide.

You can be feeling pleasantly attached to projects or people this year. However, Venus opposes Uranus around the time of your birthday, and some disruptions in your friendships and attachments are possible this year. Unusual attractions (to people and things) can have you acting on a whim. You may deal with freedom versus closeness issues in your relationships. It may be that you experience sudden changes or breakups with a friend or lover. However, the chance of a sudden new friendship is just as likely. At the root of this is a stronger taste for the unusual. What is familiar is less exciting to you than what is new and different. If a relationship seems to threaten your sense of freedom, you may have an easy time separating from it. Some fireworks in wither or both your social and financial lives are to be expected, keeping things fresh and exciting. The best way to handle this energy is to open yourself up to the need for change in your love life or with regards to how you spend and make money–or both. Get in touch with this need for new experiences and/or attitudes so that changes are not forced upon you.

Jupiter trines the North Node in your Solar Return, suggesting fortunate connections are likely to be made this year–connections that benefit you now and down the road and that enhance your chances of success at achieving your goals. A new relationship with someone that helps to broaden your horizons, expand your mind, and deepen your personal philosophy of life is very likely.

The year ahead can be an especially creative, enterprising, forward-looking, and dynamic one. Even so, you should watch carefully for overlooking important details. It’s a particularly strong period for creative projects and joining with others in pursuing a common goal. You are exploring new things, interests, places, and situations this year, and this suits you well!... see more There can be some disruptions in your social life as you explore new options. Your personal appeal is through the roof.

3 in Numerology2018 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It's likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for "play" time are greater than usual. It's also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice - reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.

4 in Numerology2019 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It's "nose to the grindstone" time. It's a time to pay special attention to practical matters, and it's not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, development, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice - get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

Astrology of Today – Saturday, November 17, 2018
Nov 15, 2018 by Annie Leave a Comment




November 17, 2018 (Click to enlarge)
Today’s Moon:

The Moon is in Pisces.
The Moon is waxing and in its First Quarter phase.
We are in between the First Quarter Moon, which occurred on the 15th, and the Full Moon, which will happen on November 23rd.
Retrogrades/Stations:

Mercury is retrograde (Mercury is retrograde from November 16th to December 6th).
Venus is direct and in its post-retrograde shadow phase until December 17th.
Current retrogrades: Mercury Rx, Uranus Rx, Neptune Rx, and Chiron Rx.

**Times are Eastern Standard Time (EST).


Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Aries

Aries
Mercury has just begun its retrograde starting off in your communications, travel, and education sector, dear Aries, and will remain retrograde until December 6th. In the coming weeks, look at past projects and places for answers. If you’ve rushed through your life in certain areas, you may have missed some vital details, and now it’s time to reconsider things as you look at matters from a different perspective. Today is better for laying low, observing, and processing, not only because Mercury has just stationed and turned retrograde, but also because the Moon spends the day in your privacy sector. Misjudging things is entirely possible, so it’s best to leave assessments open-ended. Especially today and in the coming week, check your facts before jumping to conclusions or expressing strong opinions. There could be misleading, missing, or hidden information that makes decision making more challenging. Delayed travel plans or travel itself may be an issue for some. Confusion over shared resources or financial transactions could figure strongly later in the cycle.

Taurus

Taurus
Communications that we typically take for granted may not work as expected with Mercury retrograde until December 6th, dear Taurus. Today, we may not understand the intention behind others’ words, and it’s important to allow for errors and mixed signals for now. If you are confused or bothered by something that’s said to you, ask for clarification. In the weeks ahead, debts, taxes, shared resources, and intimate matters can be a little trickier than usual for you. Later, partnerships can be confusing or can involve delays. Even so, it’s a great time for review and returning to projects that were left unfinished. Look back before moving forward now. Finances deserve special attention, notably shared money and property as well as loans and support payments. There may be delays or uncertainty in these areas, but the month ahead is strong for sorting out long-standing issues and for discovering hidden or overlooked resources, so be patient. Do watch for overspending or overlending. Today holds positive and friendly energy even with the chances of misunderstandings running high.

Gemini

Gemini
Mercury, your ruler, has just begun its retrograde cycle and will continue its apparent backup motion until December 6th, dear Gemini, first in your partnership sector and later (from December 1-6) in your work and health sector. You may be revisiting old issues or feeling stuck at times, particularly in or about a close relationship, with your work and routines, or regarding your health, but reflection ultimately serves you well. Do watch what you say and how you say it today during this shift which can be particularly confusing. For now, there could be some unusual, confusing, or frustrating elements to deal with in a current partnership, due to communication problems or the revisiting of old relationship problems. An ex-partnership could come into sharp focus for some. Mediation and negotiations may not be straightforward. Rethinking a deal, contract, or partnership arrangement is possible. Even though there can be fogginess trying to understand someone’s perspective, you may end up learning to listen better while trying, and this means you end up ahead!

Cancer

Cancer
Mercury is retrograde until December 6th, dear Cancer, starting in your work-and-health sector and later, moving back into your romance sector. There could be old problems that resurface in your work, or there can be a need to go over and correct or refine projects. Be especially careful about what you’re saying, and signing! With your methods, habits, or health, you’re likely to be dealing with backtracking or delays, but these may give you time to reconsider and refine recent decisions and ideas. Today’s Moon jibes well with your sign, encouraging you to take a break from the usual routine if it’s possible. If not, you might consider doing things just a little differently to keep yourself stimulated. Mental refreshment... see more is important to you today.

Leo

Leo
Mercury is retrograde until December 6th, dear Leo, and you’ll be looking back a while longer before pushing specific projects forward. Take this time to get in touch with your intuition and look at old problems in new ways. All Mercury retrograde cycles mainly affect you in the areas of personal finances and communications with friends or groups, and this particular cycle especially impacts communications surrounding romance, children, and creativity. If a project or relationship is not moving forward in distinct ways, it might seem like stagnation, but it’s more likely a period of review and rest. People or projects from the past can be an active focus. There can be waiting games, delays, stalling, or a catch-up period, but giving due attention to what you’ve overlooked means, in time, you end up ahead of the game. A significant opportunity arises for tapping into a different “take” or perspective on love, children, entertainment, family, and hobbies since you’re paying special attention to the various forms of nonverbal communication.

Virgo

Virgo
Mercury just turned retrograde, dear Virgo, and will continue to retrograde until December 6th. Your desire to communicate with family, organize your home life, and make sense of your inner world is strong in the weeks ahead, and later in the cycle, you may be revisiting old studies or personal interests. There could be difficulties with delays and misunderstandings, and you may be waiting for an answer or further information primarily related to work or home life, but you are also afforded the opportunity to redo, refine, rework, and reorganize in ways that you may not have imagined at another time. New initiatives in, on, or around the home may not be wise just for now, but refining projects already in progress can be both successful and satisfying. Use this time for processing and digesting recent events. Today’s Moon brings partnerships into stronger focus.

Libra

Libra
Mercury is now retrograde, dear Libra, and this cycle will last until December 6th. Taking more time to arrive at a decision may come naturally, or it could be due to a delay as you wait for an answer or further information on a matter. Either way, it can be helpful to see details you may have missed. It’s a good idea to be a little more cautious coming to important agreements, signing documents, purchasing or managing cars and other methods of transportation, and backing up work on your electronics, particularly with the majority of this cycle occurring in your communications sector. Misunderstandings and malfunctions tend to be frustrating but minor. Later in the cycle (from December 1-6), there can be some confusion surrounding money matters. This is not the time to look for answers or promises that are written in stone. It’s a great time, however, for seeing things from a different perspective, and this can be helpful. Misunderstandings and redirects can lead to improvements, and you’re in good shape for collecting information, research, and work that involves refining and editing. Returning to unfinished projects or reconnecting with old studies, places, or people can be both interesting and instructive.

Scorpio

Scorpio
Mercury is now retrograde, dear Scorpio, and will be until December 6th. Delays or uncertainties and unknowns with your practical affairs and with money for the time being, but these can lead to an important and illuminating review of your finances or projects, leading to the uncovering of past errors or the rethinking of decisions. You are looking back before you move forward, and this can be a valuable exercise. Take things easy and avoid significant changes for best results as several shifts are occurring now that can temporarily confuse us. In the weeks ahead, take extra time to examine your projects, purchases, and commitments. Today’s Moon tends to keep your spirits high, inspiring you to create, share, and connect.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius
Mercury has just turned retrograde in your sign, dear Sagittarius, and will remain retrograde until December 6th. Tremendous insights and possibly the beginnings of critical new ideas can emerge during this cycle. While you may be putting your foot in your mouth from time to time, you’re also working on clarifying your thoughts and ideas, and you’re getting plenty of time and space to do so. However, at the time of such shifts, misunderstandings are particularly prevalent, making it wise to slow down. Decision-making isn’t exceptionally quick or pain-free now, but this does encourage you to take more time to look at issues from different angles, which can ultimately benefit you. The Moon spends the day in your home sector today, encouraging you to lay low, rest, and relax just for the time being.

Capricorn

Capricorn
Mercury is now retrograde, dear Capricorn, and there can be some issues with delays, misunderstandings, and technical problems to deal with in the weeks ahead (Mercury’s retrograde lasts until December 6th). It’s a strong period for looking at problem areas from a new perspective, including those things that are supposed to be in your past but that are nevertheless affecting current decisions and behaviors. Or, you may be refining works in progress, backtracking over the past to find the answers you need, journaling, and observing in order to learn more about where you might be headed next. Do watch for unwittingly revealing something you’d prefer to keep private today. When planets are changing directions, whether they’re turning direct or retrograde, there can be some initial confusion or disorientation, after which it’s easier to understand the energies of that planet as we grow more accustomed to them.

Aquarius

Aquarius
With Mercury freshly retrograde, dear Aquarius, this is another day when it’s better to wait things out, get rest, and aim to approach problems later. This retrograde cycle lasts until December 6th and is a good time for looking at old issues or recent decisions in a new way. Overlooked details may come to light during this period, giving you the chance to change your mind. Even so, there can be delays as you wait for an answer or further information about a matter. While you wait, you might do some important detouring or reconsidering that ultimately benefits you. The potential for crossed wires is quite strong as the shift has just happened. Try not to take misunderstandings to heart, and avoid bringing up tricky topics with loved ones and especially friends today. Until November 30th, old friends could reappear or “star” in your brain. You could be reviewing long-term goals, plans, and dreams, or reevaluating group associations or even friendships. This is a good time for learning what may need to change to achieve a happier, more fulfilling social life.

Pisces

Pisces
Mercury has just turned retrograde, dear Pisces, and you may be dealing with some backtracking or delays until December 6th. This cycle first occurs in your career and reputation sector, and delays may relate to these matters until November 30th. These slowdowns are ultimately helpful, even if they seem like a nuisance at first, as they give you the chance to catch up or notice things you missed the first time around. Old issues from the past might recirculate. Even so, this is a strong time for editing, refining, and reworking old or current projects. There can be crossed wires and annoying detours today, so aim to avoid big decisions or changes just for now. Watch for misrepresenting yourself. The Moon spends the day in your sign, energizing your feelings.
