Things do tend to slip quickly and unannounced in and out of our realm of control. Just know that whatever's done can be undone, and the faster you admit to mistakes the easier it will be to fix them. Also, a moment of vigilance could save you from hours of wasted time.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Choosing to be close to people who honor and treasure your best qualities is as much a form of self-protection as choosing not to be with people who don't. Work both sides of it today.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Take out your stamp of approval, and press it, kiss-like, onto your own work. Then ink it up really good and tag a few more things in your life. For instance, anoint your own shoulder with it, because you're doing mighty fine.<p>Updated: Sun Nov 18, 2018</p> 9a5b6ba23a4a931b895bd9ac9a5c382b 'You' and the Venus Retrograde for 11/17/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/18/you-and-the-venus-retrograde Sat, 17 Nov 2018 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>The top brain scientists have yet to find the place in the brain where the "you" is kept. Maybe it's not a location or anything with mass. Rather, "you" could be some kind of code, spirit, equation, musical tone, feeling, or all or none of the above. Whatever the nature of "you," now that Venus is retrograde, you'll notice it's made of flexible stuff. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're on the path, and you could use a lift. Don't look to those people at the destination; they have already arrived and can't help you in practical ways. The help you need will come from one who's just a little further along.<p>Updated: Sat Nov 17, 2018</p> 46db9390317c4996e3449acd6742d5e8 Mercury Retrograde Escape Hatch for 11/16/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/18/mercury-retrograde-escape-hatch Fri, 16 Nov 2018 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>In simpler times, with fewer entertainment options, popular music was melodically complex with patterns that took great attention to follow. Today's popular music follows simpler patterns, offering a reprieve from the world's complexity. This Mercury retrograde, people will reach for the escape that contrasts with the functions of daily life. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Needing to be right is a human instinct related to processing. No one can proper functionally without a little of it. And a little goes a long way. Needing to be right all of the time is a sign of emotional and intellectual immaturity. <p>Updated: Fri Nov 16, 2018</p> afd3a6cbdc378472e93af60fcdce295c Mars Change Identity Check for 11/15/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/18/mars-change-identity-check Thu, 15 Nov 2018 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>It is too easy to lose sight of who you are and what you've given. The human brain pays attention to what's changed while taking for granted all that has already been established. It's why others notice you, but you don't notice yourself unless you consciously step back. Do so under as Mars enters Pisces. Affirm that you count. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your social savvy will serve you nicely. You'll know when someone is lying or telling the truth. You'll build on the truth and leave the lies alone, as those aren't worth chasing. They'll spin in circles and collapse on their own. <p>Updated: Thu Nov 15, 2018</p> f3563a188b9e12795a246c0ae0e2cccb Cosmic Song for Heavy Lifters for 11/14/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/18/cosmic-song-for-heavy-lifters Wed, 14 Nov 2018 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>While it takes a strong physical body to lift heavy objects, it takes a strong emotional body to do the heavy lifting of weightier emotions such as grief, sadness, fear and anger. Often, the person handling this job with grace goes unsung. The soulful Scorpio sun and harmonious Aquarius moon offer up just the right song. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You remember difficult times, who helped you out of them and who put you in them. Where it gets really complicated is when both categories point to the same person. You're still figuring out how to place your trust. Take your time. <p>Updated: Wed Nov 14, 2018</p> 85990922b7d32bf04c8be525daa97337 Moon of 'As-Is' for 11/13/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/18/moon-of-as-is Tue, 13 Nov 2018 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>If your tendency is to overextend yourself, you're not alone. And yesterday's Pluto alignment might have further exacerbated the situation. Just know that you're already enough. You don't need to impress anyone or strive for more. Love yourself "as is." With the lunar change, trade unnecessary efforts for self-compassion. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you have the privilege of knowing someone very young, the under 8 set will be especially wise and wonderful teachers today. (Though their methods are unorthodox to say the least.)<p>Updated: Tue Nov 13, 2018</p> ed61b9bf7c750c6dad2956551e558163 Power Pluto-Capricorn Conjunction for 11/12/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/18/power-pluto-capricorn-conjunction Mon, 12 Nov 2018 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Power is responsibility, and responsibility is power. To assume power without assuming responsibility is impossible. <span class="column--highlighted-text">False power may present a temporary illusion, but it will always be shattered by the emergence of true power.</span> This is the message of lunar conjunction of Pluto in Capricorn, the station of both power and responsibility.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Somewhere along this timeline, you're going to decide to stop forcing yourself to do other people's version of fun and stick to the version that's all your own. Why not now?</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When hearts break, they don't heal all at once. In William Shakespeare's "Othello," Iago says, "How poor are they that have not patience! What wound did ever heal but by degrees?" You may still feel it.<p>Updated: Mon Nov 12, 2018</p> 257a8f38f91ec7627bb5f87fb24ac542 Double 11s for 11/11/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/18/double-11s Sun, 11 Nov 2018 00:00:00 -0800 <p>In numerology, 11 is considered to be extremely auspicious, signifying fateful qualities, indicating high levels of magnetism and pointing to a porthole to enlightenment and wonders beyond. <span class="column--highlighted-text">As the 11s double up this November day, consider doubling down on a risk you've been afraid to take. Fortune will favor you.</span></p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Understand more, fear less. It's not really a goal; it's just the natural result when you lead with your curious mind and follow up with your courteous ways.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The good thing about envy is that it gives people a window into their potential that they may not have seen before. We tend to be envious of the things that we have in us to accomplish.<p>Updated: Sun Nov 11, 2018</p> 44ca336e8345c79c100161d64fa87c51 Moon of True and False Confidence for 11/10/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/18/moon-of-true-and-false-confidence Sat, 10 Nov 2018 00:00:00 -0800 <p></p><p>"Act natural" they say, not having the faintest clue as to the nature of the person they direct. Sometimes feeling guarded and self-conscious is as "natural" as it gets. What they really mean is to act <i> confident </i> even though that feels somewhat unnatural. The daring and sociable Sagittarius moon favors the brave and those who act like them. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can start small or start big and your chances of winning the first time out are the same. It just depends on how many people you want to involve. There's no right answer. This is a matter of personal style and preference. <p>Updated: Sat Nov 10, 2018</p> aed606520df5e229fcf6235250701d59 Pleasure Trine for 11/09/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/18/pleasure-trine Fri, 09 Nov 2018 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Pleasure is a response to the sensations, but it doesn't end there. We get pleasure from not only how something tastes, feels or looks, but also from what we believe about it. We only delight in the things that fit our idea of delight. It can be hard to guess what's going to please another person. The Venus and Mars trine says, "So don't guess... ask!" </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Every attitude causes a chain reaction. So it's important to check in with yourself before stepping one foot into conversations, environments or projects. Where am I at? What attitude am I bringing to it? </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A buoyant mood prevails. From here it's easier to be resourceful and open to change. Any and every thing you do to feel better will contribute to your positive vibes. <p>Updated: Fri Nov 09, 2018</p> 15dad1654f7a38f46f5c22b10e291db5 Jupiter Showers Luck for 11/08/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/18/jupiter-showers-luck Thu, 08 Nov 2018 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Lucky Jupiter is a giant ball of hydrogen and helium. A person trying to stand on the firm surface of Jupiter would quickly note there isn't one while being swallowed up by the planet's intense pressure. Jupiter's transit into Sagittarius is bound to bring good fortune, though don't count on it entirely for support. This is a treat, not sustenance. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). The end of this quest will be the start of the next one. In this light, there's really no reason to rush to the finish. In fact, you'd do well to slow down so you can absorb the lessons in this stretch of the road.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). No one seems to want to say, "I don't know" today, least of all the clueless. Show up sponge-like. It really is possible to learn through osmosis if you're open enough. <p>Updated: Thu Nov 08, 2018</p> f91ac6ba3a875ba7055d1c1ff9df37bf Scorpio New Moon for 11/07/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/18/scorpio-new-moon-8f4a1 Wed, 07 Nov 2018 00:00:00 -0800 <p>The night will be extremely dark and, some would say, spooky. The darkest hour is what's necessary to bring on the dawn of your new self. It's the Scorpio new moon, a lunar event that evokes the powers of transformation. Is there someone you want to be, but you haven't had the strength to change into yet? Call on the moon to aid your transition. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You won't regret taking the high road. To extend dignity and peace to another is to extend it to yourself. Doing the right thing is its own reward, but this time it will come with a bonus.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It's not like you consciously pick and choose which "you" to be. The right version of you just emerges unbidden to handle the situation. Too much interference by your conscious mind can only slow you down.<p>Updated: Wed Nov 07, 2018</p> 39ee535172695e443be0de497e42cbfb The Uranus Consolidation Project for 11/06/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/18/the-uranus-consolidation-project Tue, 06 Nov 2018 00:00:00 -0800 <p>The number of flowering plant species in the world was more than a million until scientists noticed that many species were named in duplicate. A rose by any other name is still rose, but to name it twice only creates confusion. As Uranus moves into Aries, make a power move to consolidate the duplicates and eliminate redundancies. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). <span class="column--highlighted-text">Today is the day you can finally come to a deal.</span> If you wait, the terms will change &#8212; and not in your favor. Sign now and be done with it. Your energies are best spent in moving on. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The excitement isn't something that happens to you, nor is it something you will make happen. The excitement will be a product of experimentation. Push the boundaries, try new things, and suddenly life is fascinating. <p>Updated: Tue Nov 06, 2018</p> f72577b0280c6844ca332d8250664a18 Magical Solar Trine for 11/05/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/18/magical-solar-trine Mon, 05 Nov 2018 00:00:00 -0800 <p>The word "miraculous" only applies when the impossible happens. But if we don't know what's possible, a miracle is indistinguishable from any other event of ordinary life. <span class="column--highlighted-text">Maybe there's something you're thinking of as miraculous that is really well within the possibilities of this day. A trine of the sun and Neptune opens our minds to the magical.</span></p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Inner peace will be a matter of putting things into two categories, "mine to solve" and "not mine to solve." Of course, anything you don't have control over goes into the second category.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Witnessing a masterful piece of work will inspire you to create something of your own. Keep your expectations reasonable and your heart light. Then congratulate yourself for putting something in the world that wasn't there before.<p>Updated: Mon Nov 05, 2018</p> 2174e34d1b8c3a0502240efb7fd923f0 Cosmic Symbolism for 11/04/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/18/cosmic-symbolism Sun, 04 Nov 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p>The symbol for a thing might as well be the thing. What happens to the symbol will be accurately reflected by real life under a Libra moon keen on balancing the figurative and actual worlds. Do keep in mind that symbolism is a mental creation. The significance doesn't exist without the connections and meanings we assign, so assign them well.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Argue for your limitations and sure enough they are yours. But today, you'll do the opposite. Believing it's going to be easy for you, you'll magically make it so.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Relax. Life is an easy flow, and all you have to do is go with it. As for your guilty pleasures, consider categorically rejecting the definition. Is there really a good reason to feel guilty about what pleases you?<p>Updated: Sun Nov 04, 2018</p> 87955c603a49e24db574689a978c2dc2 Two Lunar Oppositions for 11/03/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/18/two-lunar-oppositions Sat, 03 Nov 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>The lookout tower isn't placed on the ground floor, because it's impossible to get an overview of the situation from there. However, the watchman who never comes down from the tower doesn't know what happens at that level. Two lunar oppositions of the day invite us to explore our environments from as many perspectives as possible. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Most people say more than they need to. The classy way is to think about what you need to say, and then say a little bit less than that. You'll be pleased by the effectiveness of today's exchanges. <p>Updated: Sat Nov 03, 2018</p> 007fb7d73365878435a81d573c874d29 Compliant Moon for 11/02/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/11/18/compliant-moon Fri, 02 Nov 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Ask any animal trainer; it takes a lot of hard work to domesticate a wild being. Humans are no exception. We have become excellent at domesticating one another but it still takes years, decades even, to get to certain levels of societal compliance. Under the Virgo moon it will be easy to follow the rules, but you have to wonder... should you?</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). To distinguish a face from all of the other faces is a human talent that goes back to our more primitive days. If only names were as easy to remember! That memorization will take effort and will pay off handsomely today.<p>Updated: Fri Nov 02, 2018</p> 30aabd10a4f0adcc4f5dba61a2c03b33 Moon of Hearts for All Saints' Day for 11/01/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/10/18/moon-of-hearts-for-all-saints-day Thu, 01 Nov 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Because people move and change, relationships will come and go. The mature view is to take comfort in the fact that if we're living right, at some point, we will all become fond memories. This All Saints' Day under the moon of the heart will focus our love especially on the maternal ancestral line due to a trine of Jupiter and Chiron.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). The best people to be around aren't the ones who nag you to be different; they are the ones who make you want to be better by modeling a different way of being.<p>Updated: Thu Nov 01, 2018</p> ff58da84848f9691d3ae6179e0616ea5 Mercury Goes 'Boo' for 10/31/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/10/18/mercury-goes-boo Wed, 31 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p></p><p>Mercury does a jump-scare into Sagittarius, a realm that the fast messenger is not very comfortable in, making communication appropriately jittery for this day of tricks and treats. During this transit, expect to be awake to the ways in which people communicate differently. Learning another person's "language" will make familiar what was once scary. <p>Updated: Wed Oct 31, 2018</p> a28b7ed5fcf4539fa9c96d7fb3202ded Mercury Moves to Gregarious Sagittarius for 10/30/2018 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/10/18/mercury-moves-to-gregarious-sagittarius Tue, 30 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0700 <p>Though there are numerous benefits to taking the world on as a solo mission, you cannot get around the fact that people tend to suspect the lone wolf. They can't help themselves. Like wolves, humans are essentially pack animals. As Mercury slips into gregarious Sagittarius, go ahead and bring your friends into it, if only for appearances.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may go into a hibernation away from social interaction as you process recent happenings in your life. Nothing too heavy, but it's important to you to get emotionally organized, figuring out what to do with the new stuff.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The secret is to be content with small gains or, better yet, to be thrilled by them. Without small gains, there is not a journey. Believe this: You are progressing, moving inch by inch toward your desired destination.<p>Updated: Tue Oct 30, 2018</p>
