Horoscopes for Nov. 8, 2012

By
From page A9 | November 08, 2012 |

The auspicious alignment of Venus in artistic Libra and Jupiter in communicative Gemini will inspire affectionate gifts, lingering flirtations and a fruitful outcome for labors of love. Venus trine Jupiter temporarily overcomes whatever complications the Mercury retrograde had in mind. Mistakes turn out to be lucky; flaws become irresistibly cute.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re not quite ready for a big opportunity, but it’s coming anyway. A lack of experience isn’t reason enough not to try for this one. When the pressure is on, you do your best.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The errands you run for other people are somehow easier to accomplish than the ones that are strictly for you. You like to help and are rewarded by the smile at the end of the tunnel.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Friends are likely to keep your confidences, but why risk it? There are some things you’re better off not sharing – for instance, the minutia of relationship statuses that are likely to change with the weather.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have already learned your place in a system. So if someone tries to teach it to you anew, you could either politely pretend to pay attention and take the lesson, or you could turn the table. How feisty do you want to be?

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Cats like you aren’t entirely nocturnal. It’s just that they are hunting machines, and they do some of their best hunting at night. You’re the same right now with something you want to acquire in the after hours.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your admired person will be part of the action. You don’t need super-vitamins or caffeine drinks to get through the day if you have an invigorating presence standing next to you for at least some of it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When lightning strikes, thunder comes resounding from the Earth. When you make your electric move, you elicit a noisy response from the masses, perhaps in the form of applause.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The sacrifices and trade-offs you make to keep a relationship healthy will be well worthwhile. It’s your job to make sure this is true and to avoid over-giving, which helps no one. Don’t be a martyr.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). As on any dance floor, each dancer’s moves are subtly influenced by the movement of the other dancers. You’ll be aware of the rhythmic force inside you. Your heart beats to the music of the world.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Just when you start to fear that all the excellent work you put into your project will come to nothing, a glimmer of hope glints in the sun. Your breakthrough is around the corner.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your enthusiasm is like an egg white. With enough vigor, it can be whipped into the light and wonderful meringue that turns an ordinary tart lemon pie into a spectacular dessert.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are so in sync with the season, and yet you put your own spin on everything you do. You’ll love the creativity and fresh ideas that are sprinkled throughout this day.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. This month you will be the goodhearted stranger that helps out and lifts society in some small but contagious way. December brings achievement in business. You’ll forge a special bond in January. Family celebrates together in the spring. Young people will make you proud, reflecting what you taught them. Aries and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 24, 16 and 37.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m retired and looking for something to do with my bountiful spare time. A telephone psychic told me to follow my lucky Jupiter in Gemini. Then I ran out of time, and I didn’t want to pay for more minutes. Now I’m wondering specifically what he meant.”

With Jupiter in intellectual Gemini, luck and success come to you through pursuits of the mind. Manual work has little appeal. Also, you’re short on patience and dislike routine. Jupiter-in-Gemini people would much rather experience a fast-paced scene that changes often with a steady stream of new people and influences.

You have a way with people, and it would be a shame to waste that shut up in a back room. You need to be on the field. You can manipulate situations without antagonizing anyone. You can steer the action and make others believe they are making all of the decisions. You are a natural-born salesperson, teacher, writer, speaker and diplomat. Also, because Jupiter-in-Gemini people are fantastic multitaskers, restaurant and retail industries offer appealing daily challenges. Best of luck!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Scorpio energy, the energy of transformation, can be applied to many disciplines. Famous chef and television personality Gordon Ramsay applies his Scorpio powers to morph ordinary ingredients into food magic. Ramsay was born when the sun, Venus and Neptune were in passionate Scorpio. His quest for culinary perfection has garnered him a baker’s dozen worth of Michelin stars.
