Forecasts for week beginning November 13, 2010.
By Jonathan Cainer
Since late July, Jupiter has been retrograde. So too, since October, has Venus. Retrograde planets create a climate of reflection and review. Jupiter has been inspiring a rethink of justice, hope and growth. All those economists, fearing further financial collapse or those politicians, reconsidering their wars have been part of this process. A retrograde Venus is more personal. What does the most important love in your life really mean? In a rare coincidence both Venus and Jupiter end their retrograde phases on Thursday. Around the world, there will soon be less doubt and a lot more positive energy.
SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
Here’s a car. Here’s the key. Here’s a wide, empty road. Anything missing from the above list? Er… how about fuel to power the engine? Maybe the tank is empty and you feel you can’t afford to fill it. It seems a shame, though, especially as on the journey somehow, you are going to come across something which, at the very least, pays for the trip. Venus, currently taking a brief break from your sign, will be back in Scorpio at the end of November. Meanwhile, your head is full of visions and your heart is full of hopes. There may not yet be any sign of concrete, material support for these… but it won’t be long in coming.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
You see it in cartoons sometimes. Two characters are racing. One runs over the edge of a cliff. He keeps running happily till suddenly, he stops and looks down. The moment he sees there is no ground beneath him, he plunges down. If our hero had not questioned his situation, he might have remained aloft forever! A policy like this won’t, of course, work in the physical world. In the realm of the heart and the spirit though, it’s a winner every time. Keep running this week, even if you’re not sure what you’re running on or into. The ground below you will magically extend itself to afford you safe, successful passage.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
“There are more questions than answers…” So goes the old song. But that’s not necessarily a problem. Most good answers match more than one question! You’ve now got several problems that you’d like to solve. You’re not sure that you’ve found the right solutions yet. You are concerned that if you make the wrong choice, you will end up creating an even bigger difficulty. Actually, it’s fairer to say that things will work out well enough regardless of which particular plan you put into practice. Sometimes, you lack the confidence to implement your best, brightest ideas. Have faith in what your intuition tells you this week.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
Great forces are at work. Powerful, elemental energies are being stirred up. A wind of change is blowing. A river of emotion is flowing. A fire of determination is burning. A mountain of resistance is looming. You’re dealing with wild, uncontrollable forces that don’t necessarily support each other and which, somehow, you feel you need to tame. You can’t do this alone. Nor, even with help, can you do it easily. But can you do it all? Actually, if you’re careful, if you’re clear, if you’re honest, if you’re fair and if you proceed in good faith this week… you can! No matter what’s testing your faith and patience, you’ll be fine.
PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
Is there a cure for sorrow? Is there a treatment that will make us forget the things we wish had never happened? Is there a magic wand we can wave each time life begins to get us down? Actually, there is. And it doesn’t come in liquid, tablet or powder. It’s called gratitude. You don’t need anyone to apply it for you or to you. You just have to reach into your own inner well of experience and draw up all that you have to be glad of. Despite all you may resent or regret, all that gives rise to fear or fury, life is a gift and each moment is to be treasured. Jupiter’s change of direction helps to make that more clear than ever this week.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
You won’t listen to reason. You refuse to be dissuaded from an ambition or an objective. You are determined to pursue it – regardless of who thinks what. Foolhardy? No. You are doing the right thing. Even if you suspect that you are making a mistake, you are somehow being guided by a higher force. The universe has a broader perspective than you have. Some wise inner part of you is in league with this cosmic force. There are other reasons why something needs to happen, even if you don’t yet know what they are. The more time passes, the happier you will become about the choices you have lately been making.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
The manufacturers of an internationally famous soft drink would like us to believe that in drinking their flavoured fizz, we are not simply quenching our thirst but making a lifestyle statement. We are affirming an affinity – even imbibing a heady elixir with mysterious properties. The more we believe this, the more value we get from our Cola. For billions worldwide, this is not hype; it is reality! Be inspired by that. There may, or may not, be true substance to your grand plan this week, but if you approach it with enough enthusiasm, others will pick up on your faith and help to make sure that somehow, it works for you.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
Life is not just a bowl of cherries. It is also a bunch of coconuts. There are some that are ripe and sweet, others that have yet to reach the peak of their potential. It’s a shame to throw away all the cherries, just because you have stumbled across a sour one. Likewise, to assume that all coconuts are inedible just because you found a sorry specimen. Would you like me to keep on labouring my point or do you take it? As Mercury moves into your opposite sign over the course of the coming week. Life, for you, is about to become a lot more fruitful. Someone very special now understands you and is offering real help.
CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
The world is full of great intellectuals; highly educated, deeply clever people. These people know a lot. But there’s a whole lot more that they just don’t have the first clue about. Often, too, the simplest souls can say the wisest things. Instinct leads them to make remarks that have more meaning or relevance than they know. “Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings,” as Shakespeare observed, “come forth all manner of things.” In your world now, someone comparatively simple and innocent really does have a refreshing, useful insight into a tough situation. Be open to the importance of a seemingly chance remark.
LEO (July 24 – August 23)
Appearances can be deceptive. They are particularly misleading when we are willing to be deceived. If, for example, it suits us to believe something that isn’t strictly true. Or if we are in denial. Or if we are hanging on desperately to a flimsy hope. That’s when convenient assumptions or appealing illusions become more persuasive than the evidence of our own eyes. Neither let someone use this to their advantage against you this week… nor allow yourself to be blinded by fearful imagination or wishful thinking. Establish the truth, without embellishment or biased interpretation, and all will be well.
VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
Imagine you have won the lottery. From now, you will never again be sure whether people like you for who you are or for what you’ve got. You will constantly have to consider issues of investment and security. All those years of striving to save money, to get good value or to live within modest means will seem a waste of time. Out goes parsimony. In comes pointless profligacy. Now, the good news. It’s an imagination, not a prediction. There is, though, this week, a practical solution to your most pressing problem. It is not due to be as dramatic as a lottery win but it is far more attainable and far less potentially problematic.
LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
Venus is back in your sign. It has wandered, seemingly, so far back through the zodiac that it has re-entered Libra. So, how good is your outlook? That largely depends on how much faith you have. The choices you are now in the process of making are potentially loaded. If you pay heed to fear, you’ll create dramas that rumble on, stressfully, for a while. If you work on the assumption that things are due to work out well, you’ll instantly see the difference between the moves that really need to be made and the ones that don’t. You are more loved and more respected than you may realise. Trust that. Relax.
