This week's horoscope (Nov. 16-22) 

Scorpio The Phoenix (Oct. 23-Nov. 20)

Habit patterns of negative thought will be brought to the surface and eradicated. Long-held beliefs require a fresh examination in order for you to move forward. It is time to add new management skills to your life. Language and communications with others will be affected, and you will acquire greater power in this area. Apparent losses bring blessings in their wake.

For All Signs: I have frequently written about Pluto during the last two years because it is making such prominent aspects to other planets. Pluto was reduced in stature to a "dwarf" planet by the world's scientists. But for astrologers, this planet is the most powerful symbol of life, death and transformation that we know. Whatever sign it is in represents a backdrop of our lives, both personal and collective, for many years. It entered Capricorn in late 2008 and will remain in that sign until 2024. Capricorn is the sign of business, capitalism, banks and all traditional institutions. The havoc is clear on the globe. In this article I will present how it affects each sign. Read both your sun and rising signs for greater clarity. This is a keeper article because it lasts so very long.

Aries: The Rams will be focused on improving and applying leadership skills. Your personality profile includes natural leadership, so that is not really new. But you will be focusing attention on adding a more profound layer of management to this operation. Many will be building their own businesses and rubbing elbows with people of power.

Taurus: You will be changing your life through education, the law or possibly international work (Internet included). Your associations with formal bodies, i.e. religious or college institutions, will alter your perspective and your outlook. Many have decided to refresh their formal education or even begin anew in a different track. Major life changes evolve through partners.

Gemini: Circumstances are changing concerning income that is generated through investments, partner's resources or inheritance. This includes whatever income is outside of salary. It is important that you educate yourself in each of these areas. Some will begin to manage resources for other people. You must adopt a longer range perspective on your life.

Cancer: Many Moon Children will experience changes within their marriages. The unwritten "rules" are up for grabs. Be wary of circumstances that might lead singles to believe you must marry or take on a partnership. Others may be contemplating divorce or separation from partner(s). One or more relationships will not continue as you have known in the past. Your perspective will be completely altered in this arena.

Leo: It is important to allow your job skills or your work environment to change. This is inevitable. The circumstances may be altered to the point that how you do your work is totally modified. You need to access new abilities. Giving better attention to your health routines will be required. Inherited physical weaknesses may be recognized so you can resolve or prevent problems.

Virgo: Those of childbearing age will feel pressed toward the next decision. Do you want a baby in your future or do you not? If babies are not the subject, then personally creative births of other kinds will beg to be noticed and experienced. For either of these areas, it will feel as though it is imperative to make something happen.

Libra: You will be making important decisions concerning property, security and family. Circumstances beyond your control may change your perspective altogether on how or where you want to live in the future. Your need to create security may pressure you to redefine your identity. You will be pressured to know yourself far more deeply than ever before. Family secrets may be uncovered.

Sagittarius: The source of your self-esteem and personal values will change in major ways. In the Western world, we measure self-esteem by income and what we do for a living. This pattern of thinking will deepen and broaden for you. Some will become wealthy and others paupers. It depends upon what "lessons" you need.

Capricorn: Pluto will be traversing your sign until 2024. During that period you will come to know yourself more deeply than you might have thought possible. Many will concentrate on growing their personal power and influence. You must maintain your high-minded principles, lest powers greater than you send you toppling.

Aquarius: Truths of your history that you may never have known or acknowledged will bubble to the surface to help you mature. Some may encounter old family skeletons that make a lot of difference in how you perceive your life story. Old mysteries and shadows will come to light and shift from unconscious enemies to far more conscious friends.

Pisces: Your perspective will alter dramatically concerning your sense of community and contacts. You will prefer to seek out the relationship(s) that have the potential for depth. Beware of overly intense persons or organizations who want to take over your life and use your energy. The Fish, who always think they are invisible, will be surprised to discover they have more influence than they ever imagined.
