Moon Alert: There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions today. The Moon is in Virgo.
Happy Birthday for Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022:
You are intelligent, creative and idealistic. Because you are naturally enthusiastic, you are an excellent motivator for others. This is a year of learning and teaching for you. You might renew your spiritual or religious beliefs. Perhaps you will explore philosophies or different belief systems.
(March 21-April 19)
Roll up your sleeves, because you’re getting ready to work! Naturally, you want results for your efforts, which is why you’re prepared to work efficiently, quickly and effectively. One reason you are motivated to work is you want to travel somewhere. Sounds like a plan! Work hard, then escape somewhere special! Tonight: Re-energize!
(April 20-May 20)
This is a good day to goof off and have fun, because you feel playful! Accept all invitations to party. Enjoy sports events, fun activities with kids, social outings and anything to do with the arts. Get out there and fly your colors! Tonight: Cooperate.
(May 21-June 20)
You continue to have a lot of energy with fiery Mars in your sign. (It’s going to stay there for the rest of the year.) And with both Mercury and Venus opposite your sign, you are eager to communicate to others. Nevertheless, in the next two days, home, family and your private life will be your priorities. Tonight: Work hard.
(June 21-July 22)
When talking to others today, you want to get down to the nitty-gritty of things. You want to know what’s happening. You want to know what someone else is feeling. You don’t want to waste time on superficial chitchat about the weather. “Just the facts, ma’am.” Tonight: Enjoy yourself.
(July 23-Aug. 22)
Today and tomorrow, you will identify emotionally with your possessions more than usual. Perhaps you feel a strong attachment for something in particular. Because of this, today and tomorrow are not ideal days for big expenditures, because you could talk yourself into anything. Tonight: Relax.
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Today and tomorrow the Moon is in your sign, which will make you more emotional about things. However, it also can give you a slight advantage over all the other signs. That means this is a good time to ask for something that you want. (“I want a pony and I want to be a ballerina.”) Tonight: Talk to someone.
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
For the next two days, you’re happy working alone or behind the scenes, because you prefer to withdraw from the busyness of the world around you. You want some privacy. You want a chance to catch your breath and take it easy. Coffee and a sweet? Tonight: Money ideas.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
A conversation with a female companion might be significant today. This person might be a friend or a member of a group to which you belong. Either way, you will feel that you’re making a connection with this person. In fact, this discussion might lead to a change of your goals. Tonight: Re-energize yourself.
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Today and tomorrow, you are high-viz, which means people notice you more than usual, especially people in authority — parents, bosses, teachers and the police. Be aware of this in case you have to do some damage control. Be mindful, alert and careful. Tonight: Enjoy solitude.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Indulge your urge to do something different today, because you want to escape from your everyday, ho-hum routine. You want to do something different! Ideally, you would like to travel someplace you’ve never been before. Tonight: Set goals.
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Today your feelings are intense. This might trigger feelings of possessiveness about someone close to you. “This person is mine, get it?” You also might have strong feelings about shared property and how something is divided or shared. “This stuff is mine, get it?” Tonight: Be modest.
(Feb. 19-March 20)
For today and tomorrow, the Moon is opposite your sign, which swings your focus to your closest relationships. Certainly, conflicts with others will be more emotional. Therefore, guard against knee-jerk reactions. Be patient, calm, collected and cool. Tonight: Learn something new.
