Our Pledge To You


Horoscope for Friday, Nov. 16, 2018

Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The moon is in Pisces.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today Mercury goes retrograde, which will create delays, glitches and frustrations to travel plans. Likewise, it might bring confusion to schedules at colleges and universities. This will go on for the next month, so just grin and bear it.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your relationship with a female acquaintance will be significant today. Meanwhile, Mercury goes retrograde in the part of your chart related to shared property, inheritances, insurance, taxes and debt. This means the next month is a great time to clear up old business in these areas.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Holy moley! Your ruler is Mercury and today it goes retrograde, which means you will feel confusion and craziness in the next month. Expect to run into ex-partners and old friends from your past. Hey, maybe this is a good time for closure? (Or maybe you want to run in the opposite direction?)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today Mercury goes retrograde. No doubt, you’ve already noticed silly errors, delays and glitches taking place in your work or at your job. Lost paperwork, misplaced mail, missed messages, canceled meetings and delays are maddening. But you will be able to finish old business!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today Mercury goes retrograde in the part of your chart connected with romance, vacations, love affairs and financial speculation. This means if you want to speculate with your money, try something you explored before. Meanwhile, old flames will come out of the woodwork. Yikes!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Mercury is your ruler and today it goes retrograde, which means that now and in the next month, you will be in contact with relatives and family members you haven’t heard from for a while. It is, however, an excellent time to tackle home repairs you’ve been avoiding.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Brace yourself because today, Mercury goes retrograde in the part of your chart where it “lives.” This means you will encounter transportation delays in the next month (missed buses, car breakdowns) and you will also suffer from confused communications. Oh yeah. (Sorry.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Mercury retrograde begins today and it can help you financially or on your job because it will help you finish old business quickly. On the other hand, it will be difficult to get a new business off the ground. In fact, for the rest of the year, it’s a terrible time to start a new business.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Mercury goes retrograde today in your sign. In fact, it occurs at 13 degrees, which means people who are born in the first eight days of November will feel this Mercury retrograde the hardest. Expect delays, computer problems, car problems, misplaced items and just silly errors. Fortunately, it’s small stuff.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Although Mercury retrograde times are maddening for most people, this particular Mercury retrograde will help you do research or study the past. Therefore, make the most of this advantage in the next month!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Because Mercury goes retrograde today, you can expect to hear from old friends over the next month and run into people from groups to which you once belonged. You’ll like this. You love running into old contacts. More networking!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Mercury retrograde starts today right at the top of your chart, which means issues with bosses and parents from the past might be back on the table again. Or, you might run into bosses and parents you have not seen for a while. Look sharp.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal (1977) shares your birthday today. You are independent, inquisitive, practical and energetic. Your positive take on life attracts people to you. This year it’s time to take a rest. It’s a more slower-paced, wait-and-see year. Learn how to cooperate with others. Look for ways to practice kindness and be helpful to others. Be relaxed and easygoing. Focus on business and personal relationships.
