SAT­UR­DAY, NO­VEM­BER 10, 2018 Moon of True and False Con­fi­dence the faintest “Act nat­u­ral” clue as they to the say, na­ture not hav­ing of the per­son guarded they and di­rect. self-con­scious Some­times is as feel­ing “nat­u­ral” as it gets. What they re­ally mean is to act (SET ITAL) con­fi­dent (END ITAL) even though that feels some­what un­nat­u­ral. The dar­ing and so­cia­ble Sagit­tar­ius moon fa­vors the brave and those who act like them. 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.

TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20). You can’t al­ways run away from the thing that’s drain­ing your en­ergy. How­ever, if you look for a work­around to­day, then you’re very likely to find a set of al­ter­na­tive be­hav­iors, tools, hacks, rules or pro­ce­dures to plug the drain. GEM­INI (May 21-June 21). There are peo­ple you want to know, but haven’t reached out to yet. There will be an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to say a quick hello, which will be the per­fect start to the re­la­tion­ship. Brevity will be key.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your eyes go where your heart most wants them to go. And that’s ex­actly how it is for that in­ter­ested party across the room who keeps look­ing in your di­rec­tion. Catch the sig­nal. Some­one is smit­ten! LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be get­ting to know in­ter­est­ing peo­ple, and will be in­trigued by the minu­tia of how they live. You’ll ask the kind of re­ally good ques­tions that are not too in­tru­sive and yet they crack the story wide open. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your sched­ule is fill­ing up. Block out sa­cred time for your­self, or that time will be snatched up. If you’re not sure about a com­mit­ment, po­litely de­cline now. If you let it linger, then it will take up too much men­tal space. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There’ve been times when the very thing that was sup­posed to help you only made things worse. That’s why you’re now much more se­lec­tive about ac­cept­ing help. None­the­less, you’ll have ex­cel­lent op­tions to­day. SCOR­PIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Em­pa­thy comes eas­ily to you. You don’t even see it as self­less be­cause em­pa­thy gives you an edge. It lets you see and un­der­stand some­one else’s side. In a way, it gives you more lives than just your own. SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Good ques­tions, well-timed, can open hearts and minds. It will be as though you’ve found the se­cret door­way in what you once as­sumed was just a wall.

CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). As much as you’d like to go play, you won’t feel good about it un­til a cer­tain project is com­pleted. You’re al­most to the fin­ish line. Your pow­ers of fo­cus are fierce. You can do this. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll find it nec­es­sary to chal­lenge con­ven­tional at­ti­tudes, at least in your own head. You have fresh in­sights to shine on the mat­ter. Work them out on your own and with your trusted in­ner cir­cle be­fore go­ing pub­lic. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There’s some­one who wants your at­ten­tion and is try­ing var­i­ous ways to get it. Are you flat­tered? Per­haps you didn’t even no­tice. You are, af­ter all, very in­volved in what you’re do­ing to­day, which is part of the at­trac­tion. TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (Nov. 10). Peo­ple will pay for your ta­lent. You haven’t al­ways been able to af­ford to cater to your own ex­cep­tional taste, but this so­lar re­turn shows that you are able to give your­self the things you want. Other high­lights in­clude in­for­mal school­ing, a very mem­o­rable gift and a stint of tourism that changes your world­view. Libra and Capri­corn adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 5, 30, 33, 28 and 14. AS­TRO­LOG­I­CAL QUES­TIONS: “What would you say the per­fect first date would be for a Tau­rus guy and Libra girl? I don’t want to spend so much money that I set a prece­dent I can’t keep up with. That said, she is spe­cial, and I want to make an im­pres­sion. She makes me so ner­vous that I some­times won­der if I’m ready to ask her out. Maybe I should wait. I’m not afraid she’ll say no, and I’m afraid she’ll say yes. Please ad­vise.”

The irony of im­pres­sions: The more you want to make a good im­pres­sion, the less em­pow­ered you are to do so. The best im­pres­sions are made when you don’t care what they think. If you have to act like some­one you’re not and she likes it, you’re in a worse po­si­tion be­cause the one she likes isn’t re­ally you. In­stead fo­cus on hav­ing this type of at­ti­tude: Here I am, for re­als. If that works for her, great. If it doesn’t, good to know, and it’s noth­ing per­sonal.

I think you’re ready to ask her and you should. A happy hour some­where nice will be more com­fort­able and ca­sual (and less ex­pen­sive) than din­ner. As two Venus-ruled signs, you should find it easy to com­mu­ni­cate. Lis­ten more than you talk. Libra women can’t re­sist a good lis­tener and a spiffy dresser.

CELEBRITY PRO­FILES: Coun­try star Mi­randa Lam­bert re­cently an­nounced the launch of a cloth­ing, boot and ac­ces­sories line, Idyll­wind. The Scor­pio songstress, de­signer and phi­lan­thropist was born with four lu­mi­nar­ies in Scor­pio, the sign of trans­for­ma­tion. Lam­bert thrives on change and wel­comes the op­por­tu­nity to ap­ply her artis­tic spirit to dif­fer­ent kinds of ven­tures. SUN­DAY, NO­VEM­BER 11, 2018 Dou­ble 11s 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. As the 11s dou­ble up this No­vem­ber day, con­sider dou­bling down on a risk you’ve been afraid to take. For­tune will fa­vor you. 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.

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. GEM­INI (May 21-June 21). You’ll run into an­other one of love’s para­doxes: You want some­one to put your hap­pi­ness first, but this can hap­pen only when you put an­other’s first. It works out best when two peo­ple can be made happy by the same sorts of things.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Some­times it feels like you against the world when it’s re­ally only you against a few things that didn’t go im­me­di­ately right. Af­ter you take a breath and ad­just your at­ti­tude, try again; the world will get on your side. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your style isn’t just how you dress or what you own; it’s much deeper than that. It’s a mood, a tone, a way of mov­ing about the world. Your out­side is chang­ing to re­flect the new style emerg­ing in you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Beauty ex­ists in the mind. It’s only an idea, but it’s a con­ta­gious one. You’ll see beauty and en­hance it with the qual­ity of your at­ten­tion. Then oth­ers who didn’t see it be­fore will see it, too. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It’s once again time to get rid of some su­per­flu­ous things. This is be­com­ing eas­ier for you be­cause the ben­e­fits are so re­ward­ing. Elim­i­nate what you don’t need so that what you do need will be­come clear. SCOR­PIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Do re­search be­fore you take out your wal­let. You will ei­ther save a bun­dle or wind up spend­ing about the same but feel­ing much bet­ter about it be­cause you in­ves­ti­gated other op­tions. SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Sor­row is im­per­ma­nent, and faith is es­sen­tial. Think back to the younger you. Wouldn’t you rush back and share the mes­sage if you could? Your ef­forts are not in vain, and nei­ther are your dreams. CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s one thing to get at­ten­tion and an­other thing to hold it. The same goes for power, love, money and any num­ber of pos­ses­sions. At­tain­ing tends to be eas­ier than main­tain­ing. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You as­sume re­spon­si­bil­ity for the ful­fill­ment of your loved one’s needs. Whether this should be the case is an­other dis­cus­sion, though un­ques­tion­ably, you’re made stronger by your car­ing ef­forts. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When does self-care be­come self-in­dul­gence? The dif­fer­ence be­tween what feels good and what is good for you is known by your higher mind. Hint: Self-care counts to­ward health; self-in­dul­gence sub­tracts from it. TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (Nov. 11). The firsts in life are al­ways the most mem­o­rable -- for in­stance, the first kiss or the first time you drive alone. You’ll be sur­prised and de­lighted by what sort of firsts come up this year. Other high­lights in­clude an award given by your peers, a mean­ing­ful dance or art­ful ex­pres­sion, and a far-flung gath­er­ing. Leo and Pisces adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 17, 9, 22, 29 and 15. FORE­CAST FOR THE WEEK

AHEAD: On the same day that Venus goes di­rect, Mer­cury goes ret­ro­grade, as though to cre­ate a cos­mic bal­ance. On the theme of bal­ance, a few words about this ten­u­ous state.

There may ap­pear to be things on this plane of ex­is­tence that bal­ance them­selves nat­u­rally, but usu­ally that only hap­pens af­ter there’s an in­ci­dent or some kind of scuf­fle in which the bound­aries be­come known and then ev­ery­thing set­tles where it can more or less com­fort­ably ex­ist.

In other words, nat­u­rally oc­cur­ring bal­ance may be a myth. Things only ap­pear bal­anced be­cause we hap­pen to be look­ing at them at a time when they are bal­anc­ing. Be­fore the bal­ance, there was chaos -- ex­plo­sion, col­li­sion, fall­ing -- and when the bal­ance gets tipped again, things will re­turn to the chaotic state.

Bal­ance takes strength. Bal­ance can look as if it is the re­sult of a process, but bal­ance is ac­tu­ally a process it­self, in that it is con­tin­ual work.

If you feel as if you’re strug­gling more than oth­ers to achieve bal­ance, you’re prob­a­bly not. You just aren’t see­ing their strug­gles, while you’re in­ti­mately in­volved in your own. Af­ter some strug­gle, you may hit a patch of ef­fort­less­ness. It’s be­cause you’ve be­come strong. Your strug­gles made you strong. Sa­vor the mo­ment of beauty, and know that there will be more strug­gle ahead, as it must be. This is the vigor of life. CELEBRITY PRO­FILES: Whether he’s play­ing a hunky heart­throb, a mad ge­nius or a plucky crim­i­nal, the craft, com­mit­ment and ta­lent of Leonardo Dicaprio shine through his many roles. There’s a brood­ing in­ten­sity to the movie star’s natal chart, cour­tesy of the fact that his sun, Mer­cury, Venus and Mars are all in Scor­pio, in­dica­tive of a sin­cere de­sire to un­der­stand the way peo­ple work from the in­side out. MON­DAY, NO­VEM­BER 12, 2018 Power Pluto-capri­corn Con­junc­tion

Power is re­spon­si­bil­ity, and re­spon­si­bil­ity is power. To as­sume power with­out as­sum­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity is im­pos­si­ble. False power may present

a tem­po­rary il­lu­sion, but it will al­ways be shat­tered by the emer­gence of true power. This is the mes­sage of lu­nar con­junc­tion of Pluto in Capri­corn, the sta­tion of both power and re­spon­si­bil­ity.

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? 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. GEM­INI (May 21-June 21). Your life flows best when you rec­og­nize what you need and you give your­self those es­sen­tials plus a pinch more for luck. But no more than a pinch! Be­cause go­ing too far past the es­sen­tials would set you back or get you stuck.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Set­ting your­self up to suc­ceed will in­volve rec­og­niz­ing what and how much you can do and seek­ing help for the tasks that are likely to go be­yond those lim­its.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll step into a teach­ing po­si­tion to­day. The ed­u­ca­tion will go be­yond you when you choose your pupils well. Who is likely to pay it for­ward? Who with ties to the group needs the in­for­ma­tion most?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The one you think of as a hero didn’t aim for the role but landed there quite by ac­ci­dent. Hav­ing much pre­ferred an eas­ier, more or­di­nary route, this per­son found that life had other plans. You, too, will rise to the oc­ca­sion when the time comes.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Phys­i­cal, men­tal and emo­tional self-care is rooted in many prac­tices (e.g., eat­ing your veg­eta­bles, ex­er­cis­ing, fac­ing your fears) that un­for­tu­nately don’t seem like fun at the out­set but are nur­tur­ing of your best self. SCOR­PIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When the sit­u­a­tion calls for small talk, there’s no get­ting out of it, so you might as well use it for the op­por­tu­nity it is. All con­ver­sa­tion is a kind of per­sonal brochure that shows peo­ple who you are and what you can do for them. SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Part of do­ing the right thing is do­ing it at the right time. Ar­guably, part of what makes it the right thing is that it’s right in a cer­tain mo­ment. If you took the ac­tion too far out of con­text, it would no longer hold such virtue. CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).

Ever heard of “com­pas­sion fa­tigue”? It’s the sort of burnout that comes to those who care for and help ev­ery­one but them­selves, to the ex­tent that they be­come un­der­nour­ished at all lev­els. Don’t let it hap­pen. Be the pri­or­ity to­day. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you are to de­vote your­self en­tirely to your chal­lenge, you’ll need to put on blin­ders of a sort, to keep your­self from look­ing back or side­ways. There is only one goal, and it is ahead. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Even in the clos­est of fam­i­lies, things get tricky around money. It’s best avoided to­day. This Greek proverb will steer you well: “Eat and drink with your rel­a­tives; do busi­ness with strangers.” TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (Nov. 12). Wel­come to your year of ex­cep­tional tim­ing. In love, games and so­cial fun, your im­pulse will aus­pi­ciously align with op­por­tu­nity. More high­lights this so­lar re­turn: You’ll ac­com­plish some­thing you didn’t think you could. An event will go down in your per­sonal his­tory. And there will be a wind­fall to help you meet a goal. Pisces and Virgo adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 9, 40, 21, 10 and 30.

AS­TRO­LOG­I­CAL QUES­TION: “I’m a Scor­pio, and maybe that makes me cyn­i­cal, but I have a re­quest for the gen­eral pub­lic: Stop telling me what to do! I’m tired of see­ing posters and can­vases and wall vinyl sug­gest­ing that I Live, Laugh, Love, Dream Big, Be­lieve, Be Kind, etc. I’m sick of all the memes with clever say­ings and quo­ta­tions. Does your T-shirt re­ally need to tell me your phi­los­o­phy of life? Same for the bumper of your car. Just be­cause I’m driv­ing be­hind you doesn’t mean I want you to tell me how to vote or what to read in the Bible or any­thing else. When did ev­ery­one get so self-righteous and bossy? From now on, I will only be friends with or fol­low peo­ple who main­tain healthy so­cial bound­aries and re­spect my right not to know their opin­ion when I haven’t asked for it. OK, that’s all I’ve got. Thanks for the horo­scopes.”

I sup­pose that as the writer of the horo­scopes, I am as guilty of telling you what to do as any meme or wall vinyl; they’re only sug­ges­tions, of course. Your Scor­pion in­tu­ition is the only ad­vice you re­ally need. Thanks for writ­ing! CELEBRITY PRO­FILES: What do Justin Tim­ber­lake, Christina Aguil­era and Brit­ney Spears have in com­mon with Ryan Gosling? They were all stars of Dis­ney’s “Mickey Mouse Club.” The child star turned A-list movie star was born when the sun, Mer­cury and Uranus were in siz­zling Scor­pio. Dur­ing his birth­day so­lar re­turn, Gosling can be seen walk­ing on the moon as Neil Arm­strong in “First Man.”
