Mars in Libra Calls for a Relationship Assessment

Standard
After plowing through hard-working, critical Virgo for the last few weeks, Mars switches gears to sail into social, fair-minded Libra on December 7. Here, Mars will throw its weight and energy behind strengthening relationships and making sure promises are honored. Mars normally remains in a sign for about six weeks, but due to upcoming retrograde activity, this fiery planet will house itself in Libra for eight months — plenty of time to address arguments and apply a fair, balanced approach to issues!

Three days after Mars’ entrance into Libra, December 10 features an engaging alignment between Mercury and Uranus. Conversations will be witty and off-the-wall, for Uranus tends to get people thinking far outside the box. You’ll have no tolerance for boredom — in fact, your main objective will be to keep coming up with exciting little adventures!

With Mars lending its take-action prowess to Libra, the sign of peace and justice, this is an ideal time to take a good look at your own romantic relationship. Is it heaven-sent … or could it use a bit more work?

 

The Stars Challenge Your Relationship

Standard
When Venus runs into rebellious Uranus and possessive Pluto on November 15, your heart will be severely tested. Under Uranus’ influence, tensions will come to the surface, and one (if not both) of you will rock your relationship’s boat. Meanwhile, with Pluto also at the helm, one (or, again, possibly both) of you will desperately try to maintain the status quo. Expect a push-and-pull conflict between freedom and control that will be difficult — but certainly not impossible — to overcome.

On November 17, the full Moon rises in Taurus opposite the Scorpio Sun, making for another challenging transit. Taurus is grounded and practical, while Scorpio is passionate and emotional; both, of course, are extremely stubborn. Somehow you’ll have to find a way to balance these two opposites … but a little ingenuity will go a long way.

Finally, two days later on November 19, the universe will give you the break you’ve been waiting for! An exuberant alignment between Mars and Jupiter will leave you brimming with confidence and willpower. Effort and luck will combine to help you successfully tackle any task on which you set your sights!

 

The Stars Challenge Your Work Ethic

Standard
Mars, currently in meticulous Virgo, meets Saturn on November 9 to whisk you down the straight and narrow path of work, work, and more work. Prepare to toughen your fortitude and perseverance as you put your nose to the grindstone!

Also on November 9, Mercury partners with Neptune to throw off your well-laid work plans. Daydreams could distract you from the hard-lined approach you need to maintain, so remaining on track could prove particularly challenging.

Mercury makes a move in your favor on November 10 when it finally turns direct once again. However, the planet of communication’s change of direction means it will slide right back into alignment with Neptune on November 11 for another day of daydreams and distractions.

Fortunately, luck is in your favor on November 12 once the Sun and Jupiter get together. At the very least, you’ll feel good about yourself and any recent decisions you’ve made … but if you put in a bit of extra effort, you’ll have the potential to achieve something far greater that could have long-lasting effects!

Finally, Neptune turns direct on November 13 — a very subtle shift that will nonetheless lead to a better understanding of your true self.

 

The Heavens Remind You What’s Most Important

Standard
If the beginning of this month got you a little down, don’t worry. By November 4, things will start to turn around — and maybe even pick up the pace!

November 4 sees Venus move out of adventurous Sagittarius and into calculating Capricorn. This may not seem like the most exciting move for the planet of love, but it will certainly help you transform yourself into someone more sophisticated and chic, ensuring more effective networking and business success for you! Outwardly, romance may fizzle … but behind closed doors, earthy Capricorn will bring out the more sensual side of your relationship.

November 6 will act as a bit of a speed bump of sorts, as this day sees Saturn conjunct the Sun. You’ll need to deal with mistakes and eliminate excess before you can expect to make any forward progress.

Jupiter then turns retrograde on November 7. For the next few months, you’ll want to focus away from material expansion as you instead try to dig deeper and uncover your true purpose. Once you have that figured out, you’ll find that material success will be easier to achieve. Besides, the best things in life are almost always free, right?

Venus will reinforce that last point on November 8 when it forms a sweet, charming alliance with Neptune. Romance will be tender and you’ll find yourself reaching out to friends, all while you try to help those in need. Indeed, it’ll be a feel-good day all around!

As you consider what’s most important to you, why not take some time to evaluate your relationship?

Leap Cosmic Hurdles

Standard
When life’s ups and downs leave you flustered and wondering which way to go next, look no further.

So, which upcoming transits contain the biggest hurdles? Well, fortunately, the first one won’t present much of a challenge! On the contrary, in fact, as the brooding Scorpio Sun flows into a smooth alignment with dreamy Neptune on October 25, during which you may have trouble differentiating between your imagination and reality. Passion will be put on hold as love becomes platonic and nurturing. If you don’t try to accomplish anything major during this transit, you should pull through it without any real problems.

October 29 will present a slightly taller obstacle as retrograde Mercury runs into hard-headed Saturn. You’ll need to deal with financial concerns, and mistakes you’ve made in the past could rear up once again. Saturn will demand that you face your problems directly and take care of them once and for all. It may not be fun, but in the end, you’ll be glad you took action.

Then, on October 31, you’ll encounter your biggest hurdle of the bunch as Mars and Pluto come together for a formidable transit — one that will force you to truly grasp the nature of your situation before you can do anything to fix it. Mars will be chomping at the bit to make progress, but Pluto simply won’t allow it until you prove you know what you’re doing.

 

Astro Alert

Standard

Dear Kimberly,
Charming Venus in harmonious Libra just wants life to flow smoothly and romantically … but when Venus goes up against Pluto and Uranus in the coming days, romance will be anything but smooth.So, what exactly are you preparing for? Firstly, on August 24, Venus squares off against control-happy Pluto. Sure, your powers of persuasion and seduction will be at an all-time high, but so will your levels of jealousy and insecurity. If negative thoughts invade your mind, just keep reminding yourself that they will soon pass — it’s simply Pluto at work.

Also on August 24, the Sun and Mercury fall in line with each other in detail-oriented Virgo. If nothing else, this cosmic connection will provide a distraction away from Pluto’s powers, as you won’t be able to resist getting practical matters taken care of and out of the way.

Then, on August 25, Venus falls into a difficult opposition to disruptive Uranus. After the previous day’s struggles, Uranus’ independent nature could tempt you to just stomp off and do your own thing. However, take several deep breaths and try not to let these rough-edged energies overpower you! Freedom may seem appealing now, but holding off on big decisions for just a couple days could save you from doing something you’ll later regret.

Don’t let love crumble!

Ok: Long Hair, Big Lips, Eyeliner, Piercings, Happy, and madly in Love. Yeah… I can deal with that.

Anyway. Today has been newsworthy to a point. I didn’t wake up until about 1pm. I didn’t want to leave my bed. I was having too much fun dreaming my fairy tale. It was weird. Something about being friends with fairy’s and them making me a dress to the ball. ANYWAY. I went over to drop off Brandy’s clothes and She wasn’t there, so then I walked over to Allisons house to give her back her hoodie, and turns out she has moved. Where to, I have no clue, it was just a wee bit heart-breaking, besides the that that a really hot guy answered the door. I was thinking of making an excuse to go back there, but then realized, I’m cannot be the total flirt and outgoing single chick I used to be. Yeah, what bitches. I have me a someone special, so anyways I completely blew off that… Could have been cheap entertainment though. I also tried getting in touch with Nik, but was unsuccessful. I thought that maybe he was over at his dad’s girlfriends, but then realized, that if he wasnt, I’d look really stupid, or be an inconvienience, and I really don’t want to risk his dad answering the door in his boxers agian, while i’m walking away from the door wondering what it was they were doing, because I don’t think people walk around in their boxer’s when you have air condictioning. Anyway, Thats all the news for now. If anything transpires, I will update.

Dad came home. Ordered pizza. Then some black guy came over. I guess he is now my new dealer. Tried Crack for the first time. Hated it. It pissed me off more then anything. Anyway… later.

Your Tuesday Horoscope, MinaKaye!
Today provides a peak career boost at an opportune moment. Focus on networking today, as a phone call or e-mail made this afternoon carries great possibility.

Slept in again. Dad was home on his lunch break. He got the new digital box which is really cool looking and a lot faster. I really don’t understand how to work this damn Napster thing, plus I didn’t get my dad’s password so i’m locked out of it. And i’m really seriously bored out of my mind.
