Horoscope for the week of November 14, 2004

14 November 2004

Tip of the Week:

Scorpio traditionally symbolizes sex, death & rebirth, shared resources such as banks and taxes, biology, chemistry, quantum physics and psychology. In terms of psychology, self-mastery is the spiritual implication. After all psyche, the Latin root word for psychology, means soul. Self-mastery includes self-control and the overcoming of external and internal challenges with awareness, desire, intelligence, imagination, will and skill. Scorpio teaches that life is a transformational evolutionary journey, change is the law and so too is Karma, a Sanskrit term that means cause and effect that transcends time and space just as does our souls. In terms of shared resources, a truly spiritual approach to life would acknowledge the support every person requires to achieve self-mastery.

Many good books to this end by wise people are available on the market. The one's I am referring to are self-awareness and self-help books. The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz is one of those books. The essence of this book holds four simple principles: 1) Be impeccable with your word. (This basically means do not speak negatively about oneself or others.) 2) Don't take anything personally. 3) Don't make assumptions. 4) Always do your best.

As simple as these principles seem, it takes awareness, desire, will and self-control to integrate them into one's daily life. The objective is not merely ethical as in the right thing to do. The rewards include successful relationships – the soul's goal in all people. There are many more good books of this kind. These principles are a good start. Self-mastery includes mind/perception, emotion/belief and body/action – the lower trinity of soul.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

With passion and desire competing for the lead, your current challenge includes self-control. Intimate partners suddenly look much more attractive than usual. The planetary cycles and rhythms are igniting desires. With Venus rapidly approaching Mars in Scorpio, the sign of sexuality and erotic passion, tensions are sure to rise. This cycle will continue for the rest of the year! While romance is likely, so too is competition and jealousy. Focus on the big picture over the long term!

Taurus (Apr 21 – May 20)

Balancing personal needs and desires with those of significant others continues. You want harmony, love, romance and independence all at the same time! Balancing these apparently contradictory desires will require awareness and effort. Dreams of perfect fulfillment in this regard may be just that. However, it is worth a try. Deciphering how to be honest and upfront in your communications is important. Maybe it is just a phase, yet it is a real one! Outline the perfect situation and see it as reality.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)

Creating the healthy lifestyle you desire includes clearing the clutter. It may be in your basement, in your habitual modes of perception and thought, behaviour or otherwise. Sincere efforts to clean-up unfinished business or actual blockages, is the key. Ask others whom you trust for a more objective opinion than your own. Meanwhile, artistic expression, or at least appreciation, is coloring your world. Clear away the stagnant past to reveal the present beauty.

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 21)

An intense, competitive and perhaps playful mood is lingering. Your confidence is growing and you are pushing to realize more harmony. However, in as much as you are pushing too hard, discord is the result. Impatient idealism combined with excess subjectivity resulting in a lack of empathy is the source of so much disharmony and conflict in relationships. Do you see yourself and others clearly or are you blinded by personal securities? To avoid unpleasant response, sincerely inquire into who others are and how they feel.

Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 22)

Sometimes the lion sleeps and at others it roars and hunts. So, what are you after? Wanting people and situations to change according to your desire could be the source of conflict. This is especially so since you may want many things right now. Ideally, your wants include social gatherings and/or illumination on habitual subconscious behaviour patterns. Centering includes a willingness to see and ideally to find humour in your character. Believe in yourself fully, but avoid taking yourself too seriously.

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 21)

Taking initiatives to improve upon the quality of your overall lifestyle, perhaps financial considerations especially continues as a central theme. You want to increase your assets or at least balance accounts. Generating innovative ways to meet your goals is likely. This may well include taking courses of one kind or another. In any case, brainstorming for ways to secure a healthy financial flow is likely. Focus and follow through and you will realize success.

Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 21)

Taking account of your assets and talents is in focus. You are in the mood to expand your horizons. This may well include travel. However, Mars in Scorpio suggests the possibility of over ambition. This may lead to pushing yourself and/or others harder than is necessary or wise. Be aware of tendencies to displace your ambitions or anger. Assessing your worth, talents and potentials is the way to go. This includes self-awareness and realistic assessment of the possibilities. Reveal your resourcefulness!

Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)

A pioneering and assertive mood is counter balanced by a meditative and compassionate one. Your heart is open wider than usual and you feel genuine love for others. This lends to the desire for intimate companionship. At deeper levels, you are learning that you are responsible for every event and relationship in your life. Responsibility here does not equate with fault; responsibility is the foundation of personal power. Affirm: "I am at cause for every aspect of my life." This will bring your attention to the present and activate your personal power.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 20)

The desire for retreat and leisure is strong now. Meanwhile, a period of self-undoing may be the source of some hardship. At best, you are making efforts to break through personal limitations. These include inherited attitudes, self-concepts and behaviour patterns. Life always works to create harmony, justice and balance; however, it is challenging to understand its methods. Despite the complexity of this principle, simply ask where and how do you need to make changes and how is life, perhaps working through others, to achieve this goal?

Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)

A rebellious and revolutionary mood is sweeping through your world. Working cooperatively with others is ever the ideal, yet some egos are larger and harder to deal with than others. Limitations and restrictions of one kind or another on relationship fronts is a call for patience. Let things go for a while. The desire for fairness and justice may be valid, yet getting upset about it too much is probably not worth while. Use your time well by gathering tools, leads and information as necessary.

Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 19)

Taking more control of your life direction is in the spotlight. You are eager to offer and/or receive instruction in as much as it increases your personal power. The desire for truth, beauty and justice are key motivations. Arts and culture are other aspects of your interest and focus. This is a good time to fortify your foundation including approaching authority figures for favours and earned rewards. Plant your feet firmly and make waves.

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Expanding your overall situation includes transcending limitations and practical planning for the future. Learning to see yourself and others as objectively and as fairly as possible will bring positive results. Pushing for personal freedom includes subconscious as well as conscious levels of your mind. Returns and inheritances are coming to you, their quality mixed. This is the time to sow the bulbs of future reaping. Awareness, gratitude, release and compassion will bring a fragrant bouquet to accompany the tulips and daffodils!
