Another day in which we can feel motivated. We can really apply ourselves to projects that we believe in or that offer us opportunities to think outside of the box. Watch for overestimating our capabilities.
- The Moon is in Pisces all day (until Monday, November 3rd, at 1:54 PM EST).
- The Moon is waxing, and is in its First Quarter phase.
- Mercury has ended its retrograde (on October 25th) and is currently in its shadow until November 10th. Begin projects cautiously, weighing all angles carefully.
You are enthusiastic but have a tendency to go to excess today. This can manifest as defending a belief or opinion, or becoming frustrated at a potential problem, for example. It’s important that you avoid overreaching and taking on more than you can reasonably handle. Focus on long-range plans, and take some extra time for yourself, if possible, to recoup. It’s a time for taking it easy so that you can prepare for a new lunar cycle that begins tomorrow. Even so, pay extra attention to your interactions today, as you may gain new understanding of your relationship situation.
You have a tendency to jump to defend your convictions, someone, or something today when it may be better to tone things down a little. You are usually one who prefers not to rock the boat, but today, you may be feeling too strongly about an idea to much care if you disturb the equilibrium. While a relationship can have you feeling a little caged in, there is nevertheless good energy for bonding with someone special through openness and willingness to listen, learn, and improve. Your best qualities seem to be emphasized now.
Relationships can be a bit strained today due to impatience and restless energy. It’s most important that your interactions with friends are encouraging and empowering. They shouldn’t leave you drained and frustrated, at least not most of the time. Regardless of your motivation, there may be plenty of distractions so that prioritizing makes the most sense. Later today, you’re more ready and willing to embrace a greater sense of peace. Tonight brings warm energy for learning from someone, and for putting faith in someone.
There can be some frustration today, as you can feel as if some plans are not coming together as you expected. Aim to be as patient as possible, because your perceptions of the matter may be skewed by a feeling that things should be completed more quickly than they actually need to. Don’t push. As the day moves forward, opening your heart can help to strengthen a bond. Insecurities expressed now can be worked through. A pleasing, flowing, healing energy permeates the final part of the day.
While there is good energy with lovers or love interests today, there can be some tension and indecision in other areas of life. You value familiarity in love these days, and can sometimes feel a little off center if schedules change or plans are disrupted. Today, expect the unexpected. Avoid overreaching with work and health endeavors. Bringing peace, harmony, and beauty to your home environment can be a strong need, and tonight you should find it easier to do so. You are magnetic and charming, and an optimistic attitude serves you well. While it can be an indulgent day, you’re also in a generous mood.
Your manner is warm and approachable today. It’s best to avoid making executive decisions, as you’re better off teaming up with someone special when considering your options. Underlying tension and discomfort with the status quo can lead to an attraction to impractical ventures, or might cause you to make rash decisions. Take a deep breath, and wait until a better day to commit yourself to something important (tomorrow is better). Detach yourself enough to observe and learn from your interactions today, but don’t go so far as to miss the intimacy of connections made. Verbal rapport is most important for engaging your heart, not only your mind. This could be a good time for financial decision-making.
The desire to take action is strong today, but if it’s not paired with a viable plan, you could simply feel frustrated or restless. An important player in your life could be similarly tense, demanding, or otherwise on edge. If you team up and aim to direct excess energy into constructive channels, you can go far. Keep yourself busy today. Tonight you may be opening your heart and putting fears behind you. People are appreciating your unique qualities. While you should watch for overindulgence, some self-pampering and tending to your comfort needs can do you well right now.
People in your life can be erratic, demanding, or confusing today, but this shouldn’t distract you. In fact, insecurities identified and shared can lead to greater bonding. As well, circumstances seem to magically conspire to put you in a favorable light these days, and today is no exception. There can be good negotiating and partnering experiences now. Your powers of attraction run high today and tomorrow. It’s an easy kind of energy that doesn’t demand attention, but gets it anyhow. Expressing yourself creatively also comes naturally. What you should consciously work on avoiding today is impulsiveness in speech and judgment.
With your ruler, bountiful Jupiter, in difficult aspect with fiery Mars today, the major key to success is to know yourself. Tap into what you truly want, as impatience or restlessness can lead you to make decisions that you may regret later on. Use the extra energy that is available to you now for something reasonable and productive. An epiphany of sorts along romantic and creative lines is likely to come to you tonight. It can be a private one, but be open to sharing something of yourself. Don’t take on too much for tomorrow just because you think you can handle it today.
There can be a lot on your mind and on your plate today. You may need to stretch your energy and attention in order to accomplish everything you need and want to do. There can be some level of disorder in your personal life that distracts you from the tasks at hand. Opinions can clash, and others seem to interrupt you at every turn! However, by tonight you recognize that camaraderie is more important to you than being right, and this is in fact a good time for building faith in a relationship through acceptance and appreciation. There can be healing powers to your words.
You can experience some oversensitivity to what you might perceive as criticism today, even if none is intended. Inner restlessness can lead to overindulgence. Later today, business or career connections can offer social opportunities. There could be good news about money for some of you. Especially when it comes to people you do business with, be as open to learning as possible now for best results. Today, appreciating what you already have may be difficult, but will go a long way towards feeding your spirit and feeling both happy and satisfied.
There can be some moodiness and possibly poor judgment when it comes to possessions, valuables, or money today. Avoid too-quick decisions that would be better made while in a more reasonable frame of mind. There is an urgent and restless energy to the day, and this is especially so surrounding friends and goals. This can put you off a little, but as the day moves forward, you feel more in your element. Later tonight and into tomorrow, you do best when you are moving outside of your usual boundaries.
If Your Birthday is November 2nd, the year ahead is one of generally good judgment, opportunities, exploring your options, and engaging your imagination. If Today is Your Birthday full horoscope here.
