Forecasts for week beginning October 30, 2010.
By Jonathan Cainer
Have you been watching Jupiter lately? This beacon of hope and justice has been bright for months and still shines out all night. If you’ve been tracking Jupiter’s movements, you’ll know it has been slipping slowly backwards since July. In November, it changes direction. So too does Venus. The planet of love and creativity is too close to the Sun to be visible in the sky right now – but it, too, turned retrograde earlier this month… and will “turn” on the same day as Jupiter. This makes the whole month auspicious and November 19, especially so… for all of us.
SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
Everything costs money. Everything takes time. Everything absorbs energy. Everything has a hidden drawback. You have known this your whole life long. Never, on Planet Earth, is life any different. Why then, should it suddenly start to seem frustrating and unfair? You are becoming conscious of something you never previously understood. You are seeing a familiar situation from a different perspective. You may feel you are losing your enthusiasm for something or someone, but you are actually just developing deeper wisdom. In November, with your eyes wide open, you will make the right choices.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
If there is a God, why is there so much sorrow and suffering? If there is no God, why is there so much magic and beauty? So goes the old debate. As with all good arguments, there are powerful pros and convincing cons. There will never be an ultimate answer. Much will depend on circumstance, culture and belief. If there is a positive possibility in your life now, why is so much so difficult and draining? And, if all is doomed, why do you still feel such a loud drum of hope beating in your heart? In November, forget detailed discussion and invest your faith in a feeling. Reach for the best.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
Remember the Tower of Babel? The builders of this ambitious structure were supposedly put in their place by the Creator who rendered them unable to communicate. But, hang on… if skyscrapers were capable of taking people closer to Heaven, New York would be full of angels. Anyway, why make them all talk in different tongues, when even people who speak the same language rarely understand each other? It makes more sense as an allegory. We want to get close to Heaven, but as soon as we do, we realise life without struggle is bland. Try seeing November’s “unfair problem” in that light. It counterbalances a great achievement elsewhere in your world.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
Are you in danger of going too far? The answer is “probably.” But that, on balance, is better than not going far enough. There are points you need to prove, obstacles you need to move and changes you sorely need to bring about. If you overstep the mark, you can always retrace a few of those steps. If you don’t stride forward, though, while you have the opportunity, in November, you may not get the chance again for a while. Even at the risk of upsetting some people who’d prefer you to be less ambitious and more cautious, you have to trust your bravest instincts and impulses now.
PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
“I’m just a soul whose intentions are good, O Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood.” Your intentions undoubtedly are good… and they are not “paving the road to hell!” If you are going to end up taking a journey in that direction, it is likely to be because of a misunderstanding. Either you are not fully hearing what is being said to you – or someone else is failing to grasp your point. It is important, in November, to ensure that no little twists and spins are placed on simple statements. Take what’s being said at face value. Say what needs to be said without embroidery. And don’t worry. All will be fine.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
Relationships are like fridges. You have to keep stocking them up and sorting them out. You can’t let things just sit there forever. You are now conscious of something that seems to be “going off.” A situation is getting stale. This may or may not be linked to your love life but it is certainly connected to your love of life and your ability to communicate properly with an important individual. It is hard, though, to find fresh enthusiasm while you are struggling to cope with a difficult set of circumstances. Things may get briefly trickier in November, but then will come a delightful sense of renewal and relief.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
They say the definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing while expecting a different result. They also say, though, that when you find a successful formula, you should stick to it. Which is the appropriate maxim for you this month? If you can’t immediately tell, it may be wise to wait until you have more information. Something is changing and you can hardly stop that. But nor need you fear it. Don’t fear, either, the apparent refusal of another situation, to budge at all. If it really needs to alter, it will. If it doesn’t, you will soon see this and you will understand why. And you’ll feel OK about it!
GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
“How are you?” “Fine, thank you. How are you?” With this exchange, we ritually begin each encounter we have with each other. Is it any wonder that so often we go on to say nothing at all of any value? We do not tell each other what we really feel – or how we really are. We know that this is not really expected of us. The request is hollow. So is the reply. But then without a genuine exchange, how can there be a meaningful communication? You are beginning to grow tired of a pretence. You no longer feel inclined to assume something is OK because it looks sort of OK. In November, you’ll get closer to an important truth.
CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
If there’s one thing worse than a problem you cannot solve, it is a situation in which there are no problems to be solved. This may sound like heaven – but after a while it turns into a kind of hell. Our problems make our lives interesting. Our difficulties keep us alert and inventive. When everything is too easy, nothing means anything. That’s why, unconsciously, we seek out problems in our lives. We are attracted to them and the people who may cause them for us! Watch for that in November. A little drama may be just what you need… but don’t go fishing for a minnow and end up catching a whale!
LEO (July 24 – August 23)
Money, the experts tell us, is a form of energy. Energy, physicists inform us, can neither be created nor destroyed. It can only be transformed. And there are, in theory, no limits on that process. So why do so many of us feel this potentially infinite resource is scarce? Mystics often speak of “prosperity consciousness.” Think yourself rich; believe yourself to be entitled to wealth… then accept opportunities to acquire it when they arise. Is that all you need to make yourself better off this month? Kind of! The planets promise an improvement in your state of mind and your rate of cash flow!
VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
You aren’t ecstatic about some aspects of your current circumstances. In one area of life at least, you don’t like what’s happening, you don’t like what’s being said and you don’t like the way that nobody seems to be listening to you. You feel as if you are having one of those dreams where you open your mouth to speak, yet no sound comes out. You are making your points as clearly as you can but they are either falling on deaf ears or being patronisingly rebutted. Don’t waste time and energy with a futile argument. Bit by bit, in November, common sense will naturally prevail and your view will be understood.
LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
They say, “Good things come to people who wait.” They don’t, though, say how good those things will actually be or how long they will have to wait for them. Why are they so vague? Are they trying to hide something? Might the phrase be a ploy to lull us into a false sense of security, while others rush out and get those good things before us? I’m not trying to worry you! I’m just suggesting the need to question a recent decision to postpone a key plan. Why must it be put off? While Venus is retrograding through your sign in November, you’ll find “right now” is a very good time to do most things.
