Free Daily Horoscope - November 18 2016
● General: You can't let one little 'no' get you down. Rejections happen, and you have to go through them, because you certainly can't go around them. The only way to avoid rejection is never to put yourself out there. And if you never put yourself out there, you'll never get what you want. How boring would life be if you refused to stick your neck out, even the littlest bit? Taking a risk can be exhilarating, so the next time you get the chance to leap, leap! Don't look back.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Let go of your doubts and move ahead. You'll have the initiative and most likely will take rivals by surprise. It's the perfect time to take quick and decisive action.
● Finances: You can't get your mind off of your finances. The nagging feeling that you'll be losing money is harassing you. You're the only one who can keep it from ruining your day. Be forceful about not letting yourself dwell on the negative. No thoughts of anything red allowed.
● Love: You're pretty much an open book, and game-playing when it comes to romance is to be avoided. That being said, though, you may want to be just a little bit more low-key about it -- at least for the moment.
● General: They say that the little things are profound, and that is definitely true in your life right now. Make sure you have all the details of your life taken care of. Tidy things up and tie loose ends. It's especially time to catch up on paperwork. Any outstanding bills you have should get taken care of as soon as possible, even if it means you have to put off some luxury indulgences. This is not the time to spend money on any unnecessary items.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Keep a firm grip on business expenses now. If that's not under your control, try to offer up cost-saving measures to the folks nearer the till -- you'll look even better in their eyes.
● Finances: You're not feeling particularly good. An ugly monster is blocking your view of the future. It could be mounting debt or a feeling of futility, but don't let it defeat you. It will take an intense amount of energy to slay it, but slay it you will if you try hard enough. Begin today.
● Love: Taking your time to see what (and who) is right for you means you're ready for romance when it comes your way -- and the stars say the time could be now. Watch for an intriguing possibility.
● General: Something will happen this morning that will force you call upon your hidden strength for tolerating things you don't totally understand. You'll be asked to do something that isn't your style -- yet you should be a good sport about it and give it the good ol' college try. After a while you should be able to get comfortable with it -- or at least tolerate it enough not to go nuts. You have to deal with the baggage that other people bring into your life.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: If you freelance or tend to work solo, try to buddy up with someone you trust and get the job done with confidence; if you work with others, surround yourself with the best. Colleagues are all-important right now.
● Finances: Time without concentration is a waste. Yet if you can't collect your thoughts then it's better than no effort at all. Staring at your various account statements is making your head spin, but at least you're putting your focus where it should be. Try to soak up a bit of information. You can make better use of it another day.
● Love: Whoa, there! You're likely getting ahead of yourself in some matter of the heart. If you barely know this person, why start planning your retirement together -- how about a great date instead?
● General: A crazy idea will occur to you early in the day, and it's just so crazy that it might work! So success is not the question -- the only question you'll have in your mind is who you're going to ask to hop on board and go on this adventure with you. This is a prime time to pick someone you've been trying to get to know better, especially if they are a romantic conquest. But it's also a great day to get back in touch with one of your favorite friends.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: This job has to be done right, and you might need to say so to a higher-up. Even if deadlines are breathing down your neck, you still have to work at your own pace.
● Finances: Someone menacing has reappeared in your life. This person can't be charmed and they can't be impressed or bought off with big spending. It will take something equally odious to disarm them, so start coming up with ideas -- the crazier the better. Just don't let yourself become loathsome in the process.
● Love: You're awfully quick to react at the moment, possibly before you even understand all the permutations of a romantic situation. Hold your tongue, if at all possible, while you gather a little more info.
● General: Your boss or another type of an authority figure at work needs your help with a big problem, and you may have to put a planned family event on hold for a few days to deal with it. The good news is that this interruption in your normally scheduled programming of life will create more opportunity than frustration. Explaining that to disappointed family members might help them accept the change in plans. This is your time to shine brightly.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: New information comes to you that might dramatically change your course for the next business cycle. You won't have to process it long before acting.
● Finances: Showoffs bother you and you have a hard time hiding it. Telling yourself their insecurity must hurt isn't helping. Look the other way or plug your ears, because nothing is worth getting dragged into their egotism. Lack of funds is your perfect excuse to disappear.
● Love: Ready to change your mind? If you're not, you really ought to try to get ready. Nothing's cut-and-dried, particularly when it comes to the mysterious realm of love -- prepare for a fresh arrangement!
● General: Upcoming travel plans will go smoothly, though one small snag could leave you feeling rushed. If you are hoping to get upgraded, you should feel good about asking. Your optimism is still your best asset, so when you approach this uncertain situation, expect the best possible outcome -- things will go in your favor more times than not. It's time you started asking for what you want more often. If you do, you might start getting what you want more often.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: The territory is more important than ever, and interoffice rivalries might cause some serious friction and even some changes in position. Make sure you get yours.
● Finances: You don't have enough money for the unusual dinner you have in mind. You're dreaming big at least in gastronomic terms. You can still achieve a lot on your budget if you put your mind to it and let your creativity flow freely. Sometimes that means putting things on the back burner to stew.
● Love: Ask the questions and raise the topics that help you discover where your values and interests meet -- or where they might clash in interesting ways. Do you want someone like you or someone deliciously different?
● General: You are like a sponge right now, eager to soak up new ideas and cultural experiences. So do whatever you can to make time for gaining knowledge, even if it's just trying a new restaurant or learning about a sports figure you're curious about. As each year goes by, you're becoming more and more intrigued by what is 'different' -- this inquisitiveness is your key toward unlocking the door to personal fulfillment. Familiarity is not for you right now.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Try to make sure that you keep things light. How you relate with your immediate peers and frequent customers will determine how the day goes for you.
● Finances: You know just what to do to stay calm. Looking at your bank statements is more effective than breathing into a paper bag. You can slay your dragons once you restore your sense of ease. For now, do whatever it takes to calm down and stay calm.
● Love: A relationship -- maybe an old one, maybe a potential new one, work, romantic or otherwise -- demands your attention now, and more importantly, your empathy and selflessness. Your love karma will thank you.
● General: Be the first person to speak up when something unfair or unjust happens today. You have to make it known that you don't agree, or else you can't be surprised if people assume that you do. It takes action to stand firm sometimes. People who use tricks or lies to get what they want have a way of contaminating everything and everyone around them, so don't think twice about getting as much distance between yourself and them as possible. Waste no time doing that today.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Any bold new initiative you head up will have tremendous synergy with other projects. You possess the power of direct action-guiding almost everything you do today.
● Finances: You're tripping over your own feet in your haste to escape a major source of discord in your life, and spending is just the tip of the iceberg this time. That kind of response is rare for you. You're more of a fight than a flight type of person. Your intense feelings are all you need to know, though, and they are impossible to ignore.
● Love: You may not make any huge strides in your love life at the moment, but something that starts small could eventually really go places. Make a new friend or look at someone in a new light.
● General: Today you need to watch for confusion. You might think that you're speaking clearly, but other people might misinterpret you completely. You are better off communicating in writing, especially when it comes to areas where technological glitches and poor coverage could totally garble the message. Seeing things on paper will help people understand better, because it will appeal to their entire brain, not just the analytical side.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Productivity will be as high as you can imagine today -- and better still, so will morale. Could the two be related? Don't think about it too hard -- just get the job done.
● Finances: Don't let a bully make you feel like you have no control over your life. Focus on the smaller details. Not only are they where you retain control, but they're what really matter in life anyway. Your spending habits are a perfect example but that's only a place to start. Branch out from there.
● Love: How about setting some romance-related goals -- and getting a friend in on it for fun? Go out and challenge each other to meet three new people and find out something specific -- and hilarious -- about them.
● General: You can give people pleasure without even trying today. Just flashing a sweet smile to someone on the street as you pass them by will make their day brighter -- after all, don't you love it when someone pays attention to you more than anyone else? You have to stop underestimating the amount of influence you have over the moods of the people around you. When you're feeling sunny, share the vibe! You can make a big difference when you connect with people.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Planning presentations and interviews will go quite well. Your thoughts are sharp and clear, and you can really get to the heart of whatever is troubling you now.
● Finances: Someone has been observing your habits and they're letting their feelings and opinions be known. They're right. When you have to be reminded to relax, you know you're taking things too far. Think of money as only something to cover your necessities, not something to drive you incessantly onward.
● Love: If your social life's taking a back seat to work or other demands, well, grab the steering wheel and do a U-turn. Those emails or the laundry will wait while you meet some people and have some fun.
● General: Your eye for detail will get you into an interesting situation today when you notice something strange about how someone is behaving. They'll be flattered by your attentions and are liable to open up to you about what is going on -- and you're going to like what you hear. If this information falls into the category of hot gossip, feel free to spread it around. But if it's more like a trusted secret, don't let them down by spilling it all over town. Show them they can trust you.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: If you can find a way to do good while working, you'll see big success. Now is a good time for brainstorming (the bigger the ideas, the better) and community service.
● Finances: People can be terrorized on both grand scales and personal ones. An older relative has finally loosened their grip on the back of your neck. It could be they finally admit some respect for your financial success or they could need a cash infusion from you. Or it could simply be that they are no longer around to flog you with their stories of the past. Whatever the reason, you can finally breathe freely again.
● Love: One moment you're all riled up, the next you really can't be bothered. Blame your flip-flopping on the stars, and meanwhile, don't make any big moves or bold declarations when it comes to the love department.
● General: Today it will be easy for you to see the best in everything and everyone -- which means you will automatically see the best in yourself. You'll be in a positive mood today, which means that people are going to notice you lots more -- and probably find you very attractive. The fact that you are feeling more beauty in your life will serve as an invitation for even more beauty to enter your life, which is something you deserve now more than ever.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: At this point, just knowing that there are gaps in your knowledge will be enough to see you through. Don't be too put off by what you don't know.
● Finances: You've been around the block a few times. Figuratively speaking, of course. So you know to look beyond the beautiful words you hear today to see if there is something more substantial behind them. You're willing to have fun if there's nothing but fluff, but you'll spare yourself a big tab.
● Love: Where others might see a tangled-up mess, you find beauty in the chaos. Teasing out the twists and turns in this situation is a pleasure for you -- and you're just the one for the task.
