Daily Horoscope for Monday, Nov. 13, 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 third of three sets, which runs through Friday.

Aries (March 20-April 19)
Temptation is calling you from a distance. So is the need to walk the straight and narrow path. I suggest you go for the straight and narrow path of temptation. Life at its best is always about balancing responsibility and pleasure. The fact that you're being presented with opportunities to express both is neither a paradox nor a contradiction but rather the usual state of affairs, made plain to see. Of the two, however, authentic pleasure, in particular the kind shared with others, is the more rare and precious right now. If you're being offered something good, yes is a reasonable option.
Taurus (April 19-May 20)
You may feel too heavily invested in the needs and desires of another person to recognise that you're in the perfect position to meet some deep needs and desires of your own. If you're feeling overwhelmed by how much is possible, forget it. When life is abundant, it's always a matter of sticking the teaspoon under the waterfall. The water keeps coming, no matter how much spills over the sides; the important thing to do is taste it. Nothing but a little reality will go further toward helping you let go of your hesitancy.
Gemini (May 20-June 21)
Even when you walk in the front door backwards, you still wind up in the house. So walk, dance or sing your way through the opening you have today, which may feel like diving through a window in the universe. In any event, you stand at the threshold, and you do so at a time when you've finally come to understand something about yourself on the deepest level, in a way you can hardly express. But nobody is asking you to explain yourself. You're under no pressure to succeed, or for that matter, to fail. All you need is a healthy appreciation of miracles.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Making a five-course meal, you don't necessarily prepare the dishes in the order they're served. Generally you start with what requires the most preparation. A cake may be served last, but requires five distinct steps. The main course may be served third, and actually take 10 minutes to prepare. The key to preparing a meal is timing, and the key to your life right now is timing. Certain things are about to come to fruition right away; others are going to take longer and will require your continuous attention till they are done. Keep this in mind this week.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23)
There seems to be some kind of struggle for security in your life. Some days you think you're making progress; other days, you have serious doubts. At the moment, you must do something that may be a little tricky: balance your faith that everything is going to work out fine, with the effort and awareness that it'll take to make sure things really do turn out the way you want. In the end, what you do may have little in common with the specific results you get, but by keeping your attention on what needs to happen, you will open the door to progress and see your opportunities when they arise.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)
Mercury retrograde seems to be creating more questions than answers. Because those questions take work to resolve, it may seem like you're trapped in a cycle of diminishing returns. But consider this: Some questions have direct answers. Others are there to provide guidance and information. No matter how you look at it, the questions you're raising are a resource. They all have something to offer. And before long, one or two of the more challenging ones is going to yield a rather surprising result.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23)
Part of the problem, indeed, the whole problem, with money is that often it becomes the tool for control dramas. When energy is converted into cash, it becomes a form of power so potent that with a little of the stuff, you can quite literally get someone, somewhere, to do anything at all. And, when people hold the power of cash, you can be sure that most of the time they're perfectly aware of what that represents. Your mission today is to see through all this madness, and if you do, there will be substantial rewards -- and some brilliant intangible ones as well.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
The universe is not an orderly place, but as the saying goes, there are patterns in the chaos. Life itself would seem to be one of those patterns, when you think of how unlikely it is that we actually got here at all; that clay has taken up life, makes movies, does the marketing, scrubs the dog and hopefully has plenty of awesome sex. Be on the lookout for the unlikely today, indeed, for the impossible. Read things right to left, and from the bottom up. Look at pictures upside down. Go home a different way than you went. The random chance factor is currently piled high in your favour.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22)
Much remains hidden from your view. It will not be this way for long. Concentrate on what you can see, what you do now, and what you know, and what your hunch tells you. This won't be your average hunch, by the way -- and it will be the kind that even you, who lives by your instincts, might miss. It's a slippery one, but here is a clue: you're inclined to do something you fear might create additional complication. It's likely to have the opposite effect, for reasons you will only believe when you see. I'm not saying go against your intuition -- I'm saying go deeper.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20)
Someone who thinks they're pulling a fast one is about to hand you the ball. You'll need to be alert. You'll need to be listening carefully and reading between the lines. And most of all, today you need to treat life a little like a mix between a game and a cosmic joke. Take it light, and put your childhood interest solving puzzles to work. But the cue will be unmistakable, or at least, like every other riddle, it will seem so in retrospect. But the more you laugh today, the better of a chance you have getting it in advance.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
You have more influence than you think today, so you had better over-estimate. What occurs may be more dependent on what you don't say rather than what you do; more dependent on what you hear rather than what you say; and that, in turn, hangs on whether you get a message that may not be intended for you, but which sways your opinion or captivates your awareness. In any event, odd circumstances will prevail, so keep your antennae up, and remember that what seems like an off-hand chance one moment can seem like a miracle the very next.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
It is not often that people actually agree with us -- in heart and soul, not just in mind. It's taken someone a little time to come around to your point of view. They didn't get there using the same logic you did, or referencing the same facts -- but they are arriving. I suggest you welcome this with open arms. And if it happens to change one way or the other the next few days, be open to all change as progress, because one is not possible without the other. And both are, in fact, developing rather nicely for you.
