Forecasts for week beginning October 29, 2011.
By Jonathan Cainer
The end of November brings a solar eclipse. Even if you can’t see it, wherever you are, whatever you are doing, whatever sign you happen to belong to, you will be able to feel it. It is a symbol of rebirth, the old giving way to the new. One moment, the Sun shines as usual. The next it starts to slowly disappear. Briefly, the world suspects it has gone forever. Then it returns. If, in your life, it seems as if something is threatened – or as if a light is somehow fading – fear not.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
They say the definition of insanity is to ‘keep doing the same thing’ whilst expecting a different result. If you want your life to become less stressful, you’ve got to change some of what you keep doing. You’re not completely creating the situation – but you’re shaping it to some extent. You can’t control anyone else’s behaviour, but you can, at least, modify your own. That’s all you need to do in November. Alter an attitude. Break a habit pattern. Try a new approach. All that now seems so exasperatingly impossible will begin to become pleasingly feasible.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
We are all born blessed with natural powers that science has yet to prove. Telepathy, for example – or telekinesis, the exertion of mind over matter. We all know, in our heart of hearts, that we have a sixth sense available to us, which – while it may seem to be erratic – is very real when it works. Yet whenever experts try to look for evidence of this ability, it hides where they cannot see it! Please don’t assume, in November, that you lack such mystical talents. You have them. And if you trust and use them you can make many magical changes take place.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 22)
With just one word we can change someone’s life. We can offer criticism that deflates or encouragement that inspires. We can be positive or negative, angry or forgiving, kind or cold. We don’t need to say much. Often, it can be done silently with just a simple look. Actions, similarly, don’t have to be dramatic to be effective. Don’t underestimate your power to make it different this month and don’t feel afraid when you ought to be feeling confident. There may not seem to be much you can do, but whatever you can do is all you need to do.
CANCER (June 23 – July 23)
I was just preparing your forecast for November when several people began a bidding war for advertising in this space. The first offer came from a company that wanted to sell you something expensive that you don’t need. The next came from a loan company wanting to lend you money at an extortionate rate. You’ll be glad to hear I turned them all down. A solar eclipse at the end of the month suggests many people will try to hijack your agenda and make you offers you feel you can’t refuse. But you can. And if you are strong this month, you’ll be fine.
LEO (July 24 – August 23)
Soap operas mirror the dramas of life – yet they also exaggerate the rate of change. Viewers don’t want to sit around waiting for something to happen. We can experience that just by leading our own lives! Only rarely do we find ourselves dealing with challenge after challenge in a short space of time. This has such an impact that we then spend months steeling ourselves for the possibility of a repeat. You are concerned lest a small event sets off an avalanche. It won’t. Your life in November is not a soap. It is a one-act play with a happy ending.
VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
Do you never stop smiling, regardless of how much there is to worry about? You may like to think so, but your friends would beg to differ. They’d say you wear your heart on your sleeve. Ask any of them what’s eating you now? They all know; it’s no secret. But November brings reason to relax. You will soon feel happier about your prospects. Materially and emotionally, things are improving. You will find it hard to hide the relief you feel. It may, though, be wise to disguise this till you have completely converted an opportunity into a success.
LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
How do you make something OK if it is not OK? First, you have to ask why you would want to? There can only be one answer. Because you cannot change it. If you can, then that’s the way to make it OK. If you can’t, then it’s not OK to just keep putting up with it. You have to find something about it that is OK. Or that at least you can understand. Something that you can forgive, even if you can’t forget it. Some side-effect you can be grateful for. Two wrongs do not make a right. In November you need to let go of a past hurt. Embrace a healing future.
SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
Little things count for a lot – or so they say. But it is hard to see how this can really be true. Take, for example, a mountain. That’s a big thing. Now, think about a pinhead. That’s a little thing. How many of these do you think you need in order to match the mountain? When we allow little things to count for lot, all we actually do is warp our own sense of perspective, and compromise our ability to be clear. Something silly is taking up far too much of your precious time. You have bigger things to think about in November. Turn your attention there!
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
There will be a solar eclipse in your sign at the end of November. What else do you need to know? Well, Okay. I guess I could tell you the lottery numbers – or the three special words that will ensure your favourite movie star asks to marry you – but actually… I’ve already told you something worth more. You currently have power, energy, determination, direction and an unrivalled ability to succeed. You’re about to get even more. As long as you stay clear and calm you’ll learn all you need to know in order to get all you truly require.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
Would you like the good news or the slightly less than wonderful news about November? Actually, I really don’t have any bad news – even though I know you are nervous. I suppose, if you keep fervently anticipating a disaster, you may just create one. But you will need to try hard – for your cosmic climate is favourable. Expect an improvement in a close relationship (that’s the good news) plus a sudden upheaval that forces you to think on your feet (that’s the slightly less than wonderful news). But you can only emerge triumphantly from it all.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
Look into my eyes. You are feeling sleepy. You can think of nothing but blue skies and fluffy clouds. You are… floating. Relaxed from the tip of your toes to the… well, yes I DO know this is corny… but how else do I alert you to the idea that something in November, is lulling you into a false sense of security? You think all is fine in an area of life where much is dodgy. Meanwhile, you’re more worried than you need to be about a matter that’s not really a big deal. You need a greater sense of perspective, proportion and priority. Once that returns, all will be fine.
PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
Once, long ago, you were a different person. You were small. You went to school. You played with your friends. You knew nothing about the big wide world. But you were still you. How much of your current situation would that ‘old you’ have recognised? To this day, your inner child is baffled by some of the things that are so important in your daily life. A part of you just wants to be simple, happy, playful. Is that really too much to ask? It’s not. So ask the universe! What once was important to you can (and should) become important again in November.
