Daily Horoscope for Thursday, Nov. 2, 2006

Note to Readers. My colleague Yasmin Boland has had a child and is on maternity leave. I'm taking turns some weeks standing in for her daily column. These horoscopes are being posted to our subscribers as well. This is the second of three sets, which runs through Friday.

Aries (March 20-April 19)
Beware of unconscious influences pushing, or perhaps pulling, you to make decisions. You have your mind on plenty of conscious factors, but there is one that you may not be thinking about that has the ability to seize control of your life today. To get your freedom back, all you need to do is be aware of what that might be, and not forget. It probably involves your being in reaction to something that occurred earlier in the week, and as a result being determined to go your own way. Just make sure it is indeed your own way.
Taurus (April 19-May 20)
You may be having a heck of a time telling fact from fiction, only now you may be wondering whether the person who's doing the talking has any clue of their own. Here, you have an interesting opportunity. There is power in not knowing. Holding open the space of the unknown is a warrior's discipline. People who abhor a vacuum of knowledge will too often rush to fill it with nothing. Please don't fall for this one. The mystery you seem to be facing with someone close to you deserves respect, and that can come in the form of holding an open space into which the truth will enter willingly.
Gemini (May 20-June 21)
You're on one of those journeys where you can let go of one experience and have it melt into the next. There are plenty of adventures ahead of you, and what you've experienced during the past week was more like a preview than the actual movie. It's just that you're still writing the script as you go. Today, however, arrives a distinct breakthrough when you suddenly see or at least feel the direction in which this all seems to be going. It's definitely a breakthrough and a turning point, but the end is not written, and it won't be for a while. And that is most of the fun.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Too often, what we believe has nothing to do with us. And too often, people are clueless about this fact. You're likely to feel inclined to make certain decisions today based on values that you have at some point deemed 'spiritual'. I suggest, however, you think of them other ways as well: they might just as well be psychological hang-ups, they might be the ideas of one or both of your parents, they might be mystical notions you used to fill in the blanks on something about which you had no direct means of gaining knowledge. Regardless, none of it is compulsory.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23)
You seem to be in a kind of payoff zone, where your long-term financial dealings with certain individuals are working directly in your favour. However, any situation involving money is a work in progress, and there will be other arrangements to make, as well as additional credits and debits to book. So this is not a matter of take the money and run, but rather, about a game that still has a way to go. That being said, sportsmanship counts for a lot now. All matters of shared resources, mutual support, and household finances need to consciously benefit everyone involved.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)
No worries if all the thoughts in your head seem to resemble a bullfrog. Once you see who is making that deafening croaking sound, he dives into the pond and disappears. You can be sure of one thing, that frog is coming up for air. So let your thoughts croak, dive and take a deep breath. There is an extremely mysterious process going on with your mind, your ideas, and to some real extent, the immediate world around you. If you can let the mystery be just what it is, you will soon find that it transforms itself into a great revelation. Just keep scribbling notes to yourself, please.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23)
What has lately seemed a kind of ordeal can transform itself into an adventure -- it's all a matter of how you perceive things. Adventures are like that, and taking the bitter with the sweet helps a lot. Here is what I can tell you for this part of the trip: people have more in common with you than you may have suspected recently. But that fact is secondary to the lights coming on about how much you have in common with yourself. Being in harmony with yourself is a great skill, and it's one you're learning now.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
Ideas are little use without a means of expressing themselves, and this you now can do. Some would say that the creative process is a luxury, however this seems contrary to the history of humanity: creativity is a matter of survival. Since you have your basic survival needs taken care of, you can go to the next level: shaping your world the way you need it to be, be it for comfort, or advancing the cause of your own existence. You may experience what feels like the hand of fate guiding you today, but it's just cosmic guidance in the direction of your own fulfillment.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22)
If it seems that someone else is doing all the moving and shaking, and having all the fun, give it time. You can benefit from their actions, choices, discoveries and mistakes. You can indeed get used to the basic fact that someone you care about has an entirely different approach to life than you do, and because you are who you are, that doesn't need to bother you at all. Remember, anything you learn now, including from observing others, is vital information. In your life, anyway, today's trivia is tomorrow's precious pearl of wisdom.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20)
Ask for the help you need, and ask for it soon. A close partner, loved one or associate has more than enough of what you seem to temporarily lack. They may seem to be taking no interest in you at the moment, but all you need to do is reach out. Then, pass the good karma along the next opportunity you get. The cosmos is like a repeating station today, and what happens will have the tendency to happen again. So the more you circulate the good vibes, the wealth and the sense of hope, the more it's going to come back to everyone.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
Time to sum up what is happening. Are other people transforming into something else, or are you doing so? Is the mirror effect at work, where you take a step and others seem to respond in kind, or are others radically altering their point of view and allowing themselves to be a little more spontaneous and energetic? I assure you, it is both. And it is more than that. We have lived through an unfortunate half-decade where the doors to reality have seemed to slam shut. These days they are gradually opening. This is definitely a cause for gratitude.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Try this on: someone you care about is just getting to know you. In fact, it may feel like everyone you care about is just getting to know you. Hey, you're just getting to know yourself, but the two processes are going a little differently. You are not so exotic as others may think, but that's a function of their life and experience more than it is of yours. Be patient with this whole process and you will notice that people are drawn to you, they want you, and they need you. This is a privilege, and it's one that you are free to indulge at the moment.
