Horoscopes for Nov. 20, 2012

By
From page B7 | November 20, 2012 |

When you start to believe that change is hard, think again. It’s more true that your growth as a human often has been automatic. You’ve already experienced many incarnations, from infant to toddler to child and beyond. On the last full day of the 2012 Scorpio solar transit, look back and celebrate all the people you’ve been.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s important to you to keep up a certain level of appearances, but when this is difficult, consider dropping the ruse. It’s really OK to be a loveable mess at times, too.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You feel unpredictable and fun. You’ve already taken care of the ones who really need you, so avoid getting saddled with any other responsibility or obligation that could limit your ability to seize the day’s opportunities.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Insincerity turns you off, and you’re not interested in being sold on anything. So the one asking fluff questions obviously crafted in an effort to gain rapport is probably up to no good, at least as far as you’re concerned.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You want to be loved, but not if it means giving up your freedom. Your independence is of premium importance. You are careful not to accept favors from anyone who might want to own you in return.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Those who have been stuck in big city traffic know that under the right circumstances a person on foot can travel much faster than a vehicle. Small steps may seem inconsequential, but only to the inexperienced traveler.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You like people and take the time to get to know them. You’re not trying to figure out “their deal” so you can offer advice and fix it. You’re genuinely interested. Your curiosity endears you to others.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Blood is thicker than water. You’ll remember this when the one who seems intent on driving you crazy also happens to be a person you’re obligated to be nice to for familial reasons.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If it makes you feel good at the end of the day, do it. If not, don’t justify an action by trying to convince yourself that there are important reasons why you must. The proof of an action will be in the results.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Keep trying. You’ve heard it before, but right now you truly believe it in every cell and atom of your being: The only people who truly fail are those who never try.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Dysfunctional people are in your world for a reason – perhaps to teach you tolerance. You’ll find it easier to be around difficult people when you stop trying to fix them.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your memory will serve you well and perhaps better than you want it to. Processing past events will be a crucial step in your future planning. You’re too aware to make the same mistake twice.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Sometimes that which you imagine will bring you happiness doesn’t, or you underestimate the joy you could derive from simple experiences. But today your visioning powers will be both strong and accurate.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Change is a constant this year as you careen into the future (which you also happen to be creating as you go). In the next three months, your personal and professional passions will intermingle. Cultivate your burgeoning talent in January; try apprenticeship or internship. Confidence is your pheromone. Pisces and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 14, 38, 20 and 17.

HOLIDAY COPING STRATEGIES BY SIGN: It’s been said that families are like fudge: mostly sweet with a few nuts. Here’s how to enjoy them without bellyaching. CANCER: There’s no getting around it, so you may as well own it: Most of the cooking, entertaining and general managing will fall on your shoulders. And it should. You’re the best at it. But don’t let anyone take you for granted just because they happen to share your last name. Make sure everyone gets the pleasure of contributing, helping and most of all cleaning up. It’s the least they can do! LEO: Because you aim to make even daily experiences special, the added pressure of publicly sanctioned special occasions sometimes seems overwhelming. So your first order of business is to calm down and realize that you don’t have to try so hard. Every touch doesn’t have to bare your style stamp. A new cranberry recipe or the perfect centerpiece is not going to make the event. The very act of getting together is enough. VIRGO: Take your extra-long to-do list and rip it in half. Kindly hand the other half to your mother, sister, assistant, significant other or the person holding a “will work for food” sign at the bottom of the freeway exit.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Brilliant astronomer Edwin Hubble opened minds to the vast and complex nature of the universe. The observations of this star visionary were key to the advancement of 20th-century cosmology. Three strong Scorpio influences run through the scientist’s astrological chart. Though he was a man of logic, it could be that his studies confirmed a deeper intuition about the nature of the universe.
