If You Were Born Today, November 16:

You are a bit of a paradox. Strong-minded and somewhat wilful, you also reveal a soft, sensitive, and spiritual side when at ease with the people around you and your surroundings. Others find you extremely intriguing and fascinating, and a little difficult to know. You have unusual tastes and interests, you are extremely sensual, and you are not at all afraid to reveal the individualistic side of your nature. You are both organized and progressive, and highly perceptive. Famous people born today: Lisa Bonet, Burgess Meredith, Mary Margaret, Oksana Baiul, W.C. Handy.

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!

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! There can be some disruptions in your social life as you explore new options. Your personal appeal is through the roof.

2 in Numerology2018 is a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is generally not as active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner,... see more you will attract what--and who--you want into your life now. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice - be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect, develop, build, and attract.

3 in Numerology2019 will be 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.

Astrology of Today – Friday, November 16, 2018

Venus ends its six-week retrograde cycle today, dear Aries, and in the weeks ahead, you’ll see changes and forward-moving in your relationships or with your projects and money/resources. Some of the discoveries you’ve made about your relationship needs and values are likely to impact decisions made now, helping to round them out. Nevertheless, Mercury turns retrograde today just as Venus ends its retrograde cycle, so the pace should remain relatively slow. The Venus retrograde has mostly affected your intimate relationships, debts, and money, and delays are likely to lift going forward, while Mercury’s retrograde may complicate some matters, such as those related to publishing, communications, or travel. Moods are brighter, which can make dealing with technical problems manageable! With these stations occurring today, however, try to avoid big decisions and new endeavors.


Your ruling planet, Venus, ends its six-week retrograde cycle today, dear Taurus, and you’re ready to make changes. You’ve seen areas of dissatisfaction or imbalance in your job, daily environment, or close relationships more acutely, and now you see where improvements can be made. In the weeks ahead, you’ll enjoy opportunities to bring more harmony to your everyday life. Confidence in yourself, your work, and your relationships builds now. The coming weeks show promise of forward movement with personal plans, relationships, and money matters. Gradually, you’ll enjoy lighter and more straightforward interactions. Love and pleasure flow more naturally. People around you are more diplomatic and courteous, which is something you particularly enjoy. Satisfaction in your job may increase. Today, take things easy and avoid make-or-break decisions and commitments. Mercury turns retrograde just as Venus turns direct, and it’s still not a time to push things ahead, even though your mood is lighter and you feel much better.


You can be especially focused on harmony in your romantic life or on getting in touch with your creative muse now, dear Gemini, and with Venus ending its six-week retrograde cycle today, you’ll feel more confident and competent in so doing. This is a good time for looking at your creative and romantic life, as well as your hobbies and pleasures, differently, leading to lovely insights. Questioning current attachments is possible now, and it can be a useful process, either serving to strengthen your commitments or alerting you to stale areas of your life that can use your attention. Certain delays and uncertainties are lifting now. There should also be some forward movement in your relationships, work, and health matters. You might enjoy some second chances or have an opportunity to redo things that recently caused you trouble, this time around with more wisdom. There is likely to be less concern about the past and a decreased tendency to ruminate and dwell, as well as more focus on the present and future. Take things easy, however, not only because Mercury is turning retrograde today, but also because things are unclear on days of such shifts. Make-or-break decisions should be avoided for now.


With Venus ending its retrograde cycle now, dear Cancer, you may be focusing on bringing harmony, balance, and peace to your home life and family dynamics with greater success. There can be resurfacing problems to deal with but you are looking at these matters in new ways, and as things move forward in the coming weeks, you’ll have a stronger idea of what’s most important to you. Even so, Mercury turns retrograde today, just as Venus turns direct, and there can be assorted small problems cropping up in your daily affairs and communications. Fortunately, you’re getting a rush of adrenaline that helps you manage things very well. Your private or domestic world can be more satisfying and comfortable. Disagreements or standstills may resolve themselves. It’s true that some blockages are clearing and others are developing, but you appreciate that people seem kinder and that your own feelings are clearer.


Mercury turns retrograde in your creative and romantic sector today, dear Leo, which can introduce some complications to these areas of life in the coming weeks. However, Venus ends its retrograde today, and you can be especially interested in bringing more harmony to your communications, daily life, and friendships. The insights you’ve gained about the past, mainly related to your relationships and projects, are helpful for making decisions, changes, and improvements in the weeks ahead. While some areas are moving forward, others are requiring some review. Venus helps you come across as you intend, but Mercury’s retrograde turn can introduce some complications with... see more this, so it’s a little up and down, but interesting and rewarding. Today, lay low and take things easy. Don’t push yourself to make decisions, and keep in mind that no one truly sees things clearly just yet.


Unusually, both Mercury and Venus come to a station today, dear Virgo. While Venus ends its retrograde, Mercury begins its, and life feels easier in some areas while it becomes more complicated in others. Overall, however, it’s a time of great ideas and increased enjoyment of your domestic life. Ideally, you have a better understanding of your financial situation and of what you truly want and need. You might find missing objects, money, or areas of weakness in a budget. You’re ready to explore your options. In the weeks ahead, you’ll begin to see delays lifting and new perspectives or second chances. Financial problems, delayed income or projects, and confusion over property can clear themselves up in the coming days and weeks. It’s also a time for gaining more clarity in long-distance relationships, with siblings and classmates, and with your career. Take your time for best results, particularly with Venus still slow and Mercury retrograding. Avoid situations that require judgments of value today if this is possible.


Unusually, Venus ends its retrograde cycle and Mercury begins its retrograde on the same day, dear Libra. Energy is stop-and-go, but since Venus is your ruler, you’re likely to feel clearer, more confident, and above it all. Technical problems are easier to take when you know what’s in your heart. There can be some nice opportunities to enjoy new interests or take a fresh look at old problems. This can be a time for editing a project, picking up a skill that you may have dropped in the past, reconnecting with old classmates or acquaintances, or talking about past relationships. Ideally, you’re looking at yourself, your personal goals, and your image in a different light, helping you to make more informed decisions in the weeks ahead. You may feel that you’re given second chances or picking up the pieces. Relationships, as well as who/what you’re attracting into your life, can change gears now. Until the disorientation of these directional shifts subside, it’s best not to make or break commitments. Take your time!


Venus ends its six-week retrograde cycle today, dear Scorpio. It began its retrograde in your sign, but then retreated into Libra two weeks ago where it is today. Now moving direct, Venus will eventually re-enter your sign (on December 2nd), but for now, you’re still a little cautious with your heart. You’re not quite ready to make big decisions. In the weeks ahead, though, you’ll slowly but surely get back on track in the areas of love, pleasure, and comfort. Even so, Mercury begins its retrograde cycle today, and you can expect to do some more looking back before you see clear progress, particularly in areas related to money and personal resources. In the coming weeks, you’ll get some second chances with others and plenty of time to enjoy yourself. Progress will be particularly apparent starting in early December. Keep in mind that today’s shifts can be disorienting, and with the resulting ambiguity, it’s best to take things slowly.


After six weeks of retrograde motion, Venus turns direct today, dear Sagittarius, helping to clarify your social life. Even so, Mercury, currently transiting your sign, begins its three-week retrograde! As such, you can enjoy progress on certain fronts, particularly related to your friendships, work, and health, and some apparent backtracking in other areas. Ideally, you’ve learned a lot about what and who you want in recent weeks and going forward, you’ll be seeing some delays lift and projects or relationships moving forward. You now enjoy a better understanding of what and who you like, as well as how you genuinely feel about your relationships and pastimes. Mercury’s retrograde suggests that there can be some waiting and looking to the past before you enjoy a normal pace and clear progress again. It’s best not to make significant changes and decisions right now since the shifts happening today can be disorienting. Allow your mind to catch up with your heart before pushing ahead, and you’ll be in good shape now.


Venus, currently transiting your career and reputation sector, turns direct today after six weeks of retrograde motion, dear Capricorn. Ideally, you’ve gained valuable insight into your working relationships, reputation, and the satisfaction you feel (or don’t feel) with work projects or long-term goals. Some areas of life, mostly related to your reputation, relationships, and pleasure, begin to clear or unclog. Delays lift, some questions are answered, and life goes on! Ideally, you’re clearer about what and who you want, and it’s more straightforward to enjoy yourself and the people you care about. Relationships with friends, associates, and superiors might improve now. However, with shifts happening today, watch for blurry perceptions. While some matters are moving forward, other blockages or delays are developing! Unusually, Mercury turns retrograde today just as Venus ends its retrograde. There can be small delays and problems to deal with, but you’re feeling more confident about what you feel.


Venus ends its retrograde and Mercury begins its retrograde today, dear Aquarius! Going forward, this is a fine time to connect with people who expand your perspective. You’ll become clearer regarding your satisfaction with your life, connections, belief systems, and life path with the end of Venus’ six-week retrograde cycle today. In the coming weeks, you’re likely to enjoy delays lifting and increased pleasure associated with your relationships, travel, studies, reputation, and work. Home life may become more comfortable, or family relationships improve, possibly with a new, more mature understanding. People in your life may seem friendlier or more accessible. Today, however, with these shifts happening, there can be some blurry perceptions. While some areas of life are showing forward movement, others may be stalling. Fortunately, you have a better understanding of your feelings, and with this, technical problems seem easier to manage.


Venus turns direct today, dear Pisces, after six weeks of retrograde motion. Ideally, you’ve reviewed your affections, arrangements, and obligations in recent weeks, and now you’re feeling more equipped to make decisions. Although there may have been some confusion or stagnation in your love life, romantic expression and attention improve in the weeks ahead. You’re likely to see certain delays lift and feel some forward motion with your projects. You’ve likely discovered new ways to enjoy yourself and revived an old interest or study. Connections may be made with siblings or classmates that bring you more joy. Publishing matters may unblock. Perceptions may be a little blurry now with the shifts occurring today, however. Mercury, currently transiting the top of your solar chart, turns retrograde today, so while some blockages lift, others may be forming! If you can, avoid big decisions now and then ease yourself forward in some areas, while reviewing others.

DD Fri 16 Nov 2018[R] Three of Stones: Work

This is a day of work dissatisfaction, though it will be more extreme for many of us as some may be laid off & others struggling just to find a job. Laziness & lack of skill is getting in the way of getting the job done. Quality suffers as concern for it wanes, either from us or coworkers.
