Scorpio has a dream-like presence; a certain allure that is hard to resist. Once you are caught by this fixed sign it is hard to resist no matter how challenging the experience may become. Scorpio does not change his mind quickly. Once they have an opinion, they have an opinion and that is that. They are strong-willed, and because Scorpio is a fixed sign it is hard to change anything about them.
So if you happen to be the type who likes to reform lovers or friends then stop right now and look for another sign. The lessons will be challenging and almost impossible.
Anyone born this week thinks, “Take me as I am or leave me alone.” And the wonderful thing about this feeling of they have is they really mean it. So if you find yourself in a fantastic relationship with a Scorpio just remember what you see is what you get.
It can be a wonderful experience as long as you mind your own business, because, above all, Scorpio likes his privacy. You try and find out everything about them you will absolutely hit a stone wall.

We are now headed for a Mercury retrograde period which starts on November 24 at 2:21 a.m. EST and ends on December 13 in the dark of the night. Make plans accordingly.
The best day this week to get the best results will be on Friday and the next best day would be Saturday when the moon is in Sagittarius.
We turn the clocks back to standard time on November 6 at 2 a.m., so get ready for darkness to fall earlier and earlier. Don’t you love it when the days are long and you seem to be able to get more done in the daylight hours? Thanksgiving falls just the day before the final solar eclipse of 2011 which will occur on November 25, Black Friday.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) With Uranus at zero degrees of Aries you can be sure you will be thinking change. It would be wise now to slow down before you make a move because if you follow your history you will jump into a new and unwanted challenge. The answer is knowing about the change and taking it slow and easy. Then you win.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) It would appear you have outgrown a few things in your life and it is now time to let them go. So with Jupiter moving slowly through Taurus it is the time to discover what you would really like in your life. You could consider a second job or some new classes that could lead to more responsibility. The door is open; all you need do is walk through it.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) A new way of life is unfolding and you could start to feel it by November 10 when Mars moves into Virgo for a long stay. Mars offers us the energy and opportunity to make changes if that is what we want to do. The fun is in the chase so get ready you are going on a great adventure.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) It might be time to break free from the ties that bind. You need to change the way you look at some of the negative events in your life right now. If you can look at them as positive learning experiences you will find a rainbow at the end of the road. You need to just try a little patience and plenty of perseverance and you will be the big winner.
Leo (July 21 to August 20) Life will slow down some by mid-November when Mars moves out of Leo and into Virgo. You will find yourself in the midst of making some improvements in you life that need to be reviewed and then dumped. Without the review you will not be able to figure out what needs to be done, so the best thing is to start the review and then get some BFF to help.
Virgo (August 21 to September 20) There will be a major breakthrough in your life as Mars moves into Virgo from November until July 2012. Look for more responsibility and discipline and you will reap the rewards of a job well done. In the real world that means more power and money. So stay in the routine you already know and get things done.
Libra (September 21 to October 20) If you sometimes feel isolated that is necessary as you develop a new method of dealing with your life. A lover may leave, a friend may not help, but you are strong and able to do what needs to be done. Once you are through this you will be a different person – strong and able to stand strong and alone if necessary. It will be fun.
Scorpio (October 21 to November 20) The more you are able to review your needs and look into the life you really want for yourself the better you will feel about what is happening now. A new way of dealing with others will turn you around and make you more money and offer you more excitement that you have ever had in your life. Just keep smiling and don’t listen to negative noise.
Sagittarius (November 21 to December 20) What fun you face as you shift from one attitude to another and enjoy the entire process. There is no need to worry because you are headed for a good time. If you are an early Sagittarius you can be sure the person of your dreams is on his way. Just open your arms to a new attitude and a good time. Get out where the action is and wait for the results.
Capricorn (December 21 to January 20) A new look at life and good times is exactly what is in store for you this week. A new friend could really be the best thing that could happen to you now. Just keep in mind your goal of success at work. But also remember all work and no play makes for a dull experience. Once you have your new direction there will be no stopping you as you go for the gold.
Aquarius (January 21 to February 20) This could be a week of learning how to wait. There is change coming but it is slow and easy and in this world of instant satisfaction it may be hard to wait. But that is what is needed now. Otherwise you will attract the wrong experience and be sorry. New people and a new relationship are just around the corner.
Pisces (February 21 to March 20) An idea you have will develop as you work on your new project, which is just what you need this week. If you can make sure it involves using your mind that is good otherwise you will be working two jobs. A new relationship could make you smile and bring you new happy times. So watch for new faces in your social circle. It will be good.
