Weekly Horoscopes for November 15 - 21
These horoscopes are written for and published by The Mountain Times, Vermont USA
Just like rush hour on the roads, from time to time, the sky has its own special kind of planetary traffic jam. Once you’re on the freeway and stuck, there’s no moving forward, reversing or U-Turns. It might feel a bit the same way this week as you go about your usual routines. So with that in mind, your best bet is to grin and bear it, knowing that eventually, the roads will clear and so will any congestion in your own life. This week opens the next cycle of eclipses that will last for another 18 months. Collectively, this will likely redirect us away from a focus on facts, information and data toward life’s essentials, including food, money and resources – all things we objectively like to have stable and constant. On a more personal note, a new chapter opens that will amplify a new area of life that you might not necessarily enjoy changing. One thing is for certain, we are entering times of change. For some, change can be destabilizing. At the same time, where there is a little turbulence and chaos, can also be fecund territory for pushing forward where things have been stuck or stagnant.
If you know your ascending sign (rising sign) then read that one first!
It’s your relationship with money that is set to shift and change with this week’s eclipse. While not much may happen right now, consider it the introductory chapter to a longer cycle. Whatever your current financial situation is, a new portal of opportunity is opening. That said, with new options come choices. With new choices comes an element of risk. Nothing may feel comfortable now, but you don’t grow when you’re comfortable.
You’ve been experimenting with instability for a few years now. So while an exciting eclipse illuminates your own sign, this may simply shed more light on a current situation. A lunar eclipse can be emotional and unsettling in nature. Go easy on yourself this week, while at the same time, allow yourself to open up to new possibilities. The only thing that is certain is uncertainty, so embrace it. A little healthy selfishness won’t hurt neither.
Much of the cosmic action is happening in the corners of your solar chart. This doesn’t mean a lesser impact or less influence. Quite the contrary. More than likely, it’s taking a fair amount of energy just to maintain a sense of neutrality right now. Even if you’re not making the speedy progress you prefer, just keep one foot in front of the other. Rest more if you need to and be sure to trust your own instinct more than logic this week too.
Your social circle is set for a few disruptions this week. This doesn’t have to be a bad thing. In fact, this can help you sort the wheat from the chaff so to speak. The world is changing and as a result, the company you keep might be too. If you’re a little more outspoken or letting your truth be heard in ways others aren’t used to, feathers will be ruffled. Avoid trading your authenticity or conviction for the sake of keeping the peace.
When it comes to your career and major life direction, you’re adapting to change. Circumstances may have forced your hand or, perhaps you just feel like the next chapter is about to begin. Whatever the case may be, keep moving forward while being unattached to outcomes. Adopting an experimental approach may help you find the freedom and flexibility you actually need right now. Reserving the right to change your mind doesn’t need to put your loyalty into question.
You’re ready for the next chapter when it comes to learning, discovery and adventure. Perhaps you’re feeling the call to develop a spiritual life. Maybe you want to finish a degree or finally tick off an item from your bucket list. Whatever it is, a new hunger for meaning and purpose may arrive under this week’s eclipse. If you find yourself wanting and valuing different things and new experiences, this is all part of your unfoldment. Don’t overthink it.
The money and resources you share with someone else comes under focus thanks to this week’s eclipse. It may be time to rebalance the scales regarding how much you’re giving and / or getting financially, emotionally as well as energetically. Debts, loans and savings are a part of the picture too. When it comes to long-term wealth and debt reduction, you need to adopt a different approach. Risky moves may seem out of character but will be well worth exploring.
If you’re ready to kick drama to the curb when it comes to your attitude to relationships, then this week may be the awakening you need. A big part of this may actually mean choosing simplicity rather than complexity. Your job is to enjoy the moment in the here and now. Obsessing or construing scenarios in your mind is something that will be worth shedding. The intimacy you crave comes from seeing people and situations for exactly how they are.
Attention to your health, wellness and time are highlighted for you now. If you’ve been burning yourself ragged, trying to do all the things only to run yourself down, then you need to slow down. Take stock of what is actually productive because activity and achievement aren’t always the same thing. As you take a slower pace, indulge in some healthy habits that include better food and general care of your body. Stop burning the candle at both ends.
Pleasure is an interesting thing. Not everyone finds the same things enjoyable despite there being some objectively enjoyable pleasure pursuits. Right now, you may call into question what you actually do for fun. What do you like to do when the jobs are done and the bills are paid? If you can’t think of a response, then that is a part of the problem! This week’s eclipse invites you to take an experimental approach to the way you enjoy fun, joy and love.
Progress on a domestic dream is possible under this week’s lunar eclipse. As things are changing on the home-front you’ll get the opportunity to reconnect with what is really important for you. Whether it’s your family relationships or general living situation, if you’re not fully satisfied with the status quo, then it’s up to you to change it. Your home life sets a solid foundation for the rest of your life to spring from, so it’s imperative you’re happy with it. This week may reveal how that might happen.
It’s easy to get caught up in the constantly turning wheel of life. Social media, messages, notifications and changing tides of life. It can be really overwhelming if you don’t take action to ground yourself. This week’s eclipse gives you the opportunity to do that. If you’re lacking in small, but meaningful daily rituals, then make an effort to return to them. Reading, writing, exercise – whatever it is that works for you well, will work for you!
