Your Horoscope For This Week — Nov 17 2013

Slide_ScorpioIllustrated by Gabriela Alford.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
If only there were as many hours in the day as there were big ideas. While there’s been no shortage of brainstorms in your fall forecast, the Sun’s move out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius on Thursday calls for practical planning. Which of these grand schemes can be monetized and which fall into the pipe dream category? Sift through with true Scorpio discernment. You may be sitting on a gold mine, but remember that time is money, too.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Give it one final sweep, Sagittarius. On Thursday, the Sun blazes into your sign for a month calling for fresh starts. Spend the first half of the week cleaning house, literally and figuratively. Release toxic situations, bag up old clothes for charity, trim back your Facebook newsfeed. Most of all, be unapologetically clear about your boundaries. You may need to “take one for the team” early in the week, but after Thursday, stop making sacrifices and start asking people to provide you with the support you need and deserve.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Two heads are better than one, but 10 or 20? Who are you kidding, Capricorn, your attempts to be a team player have left you feeling out of control. Get your hands back on the wheel this week before chaos takes hold and consumes everyone. Trust in your vision; you know what’s best here. When the Sun shifts into Sagittarius and your twelfth house of completions on Thursday, you might just pull a disappearing act. This is the final month of your zodiac cycle, a time for rejuvenating and tying up loose ends. You’ll need more space and solitude, but don’t worry — on December 21, you’ll be back and better than ever.
Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
It’s getting lonely at the top, Aquarius, and by the middle of the week, you’re ready to relinquish some of that power. Step down from the throne and join “the people.” You’ll find it far more satisfying to collaborate than to issue orders now. With the Sun cruising through Sagittarius from Thursday until December 21, your eleventh house of social networking will be on fire. Tap into community for all your needs. An online project could take flight too. Could you be the one to invent the next Google? Your sign rules the Internet, so anything is possible in this domain.
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
Get the wanderlust out of your system early this week. On Thursday, a solar-powered success cycle begins when the Sun moves into Sagittarius and your career zone until December 21. No long winter naps for you now, Pisces. It’s “game on!” as you line up for a stunning Q4 finish. Let those holiday parties double as networking events. And, by all means, take it easy on those cups of cheer, even if there is an open bar at your behest.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This week is all about coming clean, Aries — and while you might not like opening up that closet full of skeletons, the truth shall set you free. After Thursday, transparency is the theme of your life as the Sun settles into Sagittarius and your honest-to-a-fault ninth house for a month. Your entrepreneurial instincts are sharp now, too, and might even lead you to new territories and travels before December 21.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Move a little closer, Taurus. Relationships go from mild to picante this week as the Sun changes signs. After Thursday, Sagittarius’ solar power lights up your eighth house of intimacy and erotic desire until December 21. You need far more than arm candy now so cut off that superficial sweet tooth. A mind-body-soul connection is the trinity that will satisfy. Dive into the deep end of the pool. Don’t rush to judge. An attraction may grow once you start getting to know someone better. Already attached? Permabonding is in the stars. Think: co-signed leases, joint checking accounts, and Bulgari baubles on that finger.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
One. More. Rep. Don’t quit five minutes before the miracle, Gemini, especially when it comes to your healthy living goals or your career aspirations. You have the Sun in Scorpio and your disciplined sixth house until Thursday. If there were ever a week to just push through, this is it. Then, it’s Sun in Sagittarius time until December 21, which electrifies the partnership zone of your chart. Bring on the tag team efforts to lighten your load. An attractive opposite could sweep you off your feet before Christmas. Coupled? Time to co-create.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
All the world’s your stage in the first half of the week, so cast off those rumors about Cancers being shy. While you may not literally leap into the spotlight, your hard work could be showcased, earning you a well-deserved reputation as a can-do powerhouse. Promote yourself, shamelessly if you must. This window of opportunity is not to be missed. On Thursday, dial down the drama (and the hedonism) and get back on the healthy living bandwagon. With the Sun moving into Sagittarius and your wellbeing sector for a month, it’s lean white meat and gluten-free stuffing for you. Balance indulgences with physical activity and nip muffintopping in the bud.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Come out, come out, wherever you are. You slipped into hibernation mode on October 23 when the Scorpio Sun hit your cozy fourth house. This Thursday, your Glamazon takes the helm once again when el sol blazes into Sagittarius and your festive fifth house until December 21. Kick off the fleece slippers and kick up your red-painted heels. Romantically, the forecast is stellar for the next four weeks. Don’t freak out about the future though; first, you need to have a little more fun.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Your social circle is going through some ch-ch-changes. This week, you realize that you just don’t have time to devote to every interesting person on the planet. Who has had your back in 2013? Your quiet supporters deserve more airtime this week, especially when the Sun slips into Sagittarius and your intimate fourth house on Thursday. You’ll be in nesting mode for the four weeks that follow. Spruce up Chateau Virgo; flex your culinary skills with some pre-Thanksgiving planning. You could find your “winter warmer” in the second half of the week, be it a cuddly kitten or a hot human being.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Make a list and check it twice. It’s essential that you don’t slip out of practical planning mode early this week, Libra. If you do, you might get hit hard in the pocket. Your social life perks up after Thursday when the Sun swoops into your garrulous third house for a month. Friends from all walks of life re-enter your world like an inspiring “rainbow coalition.” Team up with a kindred spirit to plan a party or pull off an impressive end-of-year project that makes a name for you both.
