Week of: Nov. 13 - 19
Monday the 13th. Astrology is tied to Numerology. And, as luck would have it, 13 is a not a good number, or so they tell us. Friday the 13th is often laments as being unlucky, but let's face facts here: any week which stars with Monday, the 13th is got to be off on a bad start. With that happy thought...

Aries [3/23-4/20]: It's not like I'm superstitious or anything, but a week which commences with Monday the 13th can bode no well. But once you manage to make it through Monday, the people at work will seem to experience a sudden transformation, and the rest of the week is good. Really. Almost like an overnight alien abduction -- and everyone is back on Tuesday, like nothing ever happened. I hope this doesn't spook you.

Taurus [4/21-5/22]: You realize, of course, that Taurus is not known for its problem solving ability. The reason why I talk about you gift with an inability to solve problems is because that's going to show up this week in a big way. You've got the ideas and the creative drive going, and you WANT to share your opinions, but no one seems willing to listen. Problems? What problems?

Gemini [5/23-6/21]: Talk about your frustration level! I bet you are just about as high as a kite (hackneyed phrase) with anxiety because of the upcoming holiday. Too many relative showing up for dinner? Don't know what to do about it all? In the words of one famous British author, "Don't Panic!" Well, on second thought (a good Gemini always has a second thought), maybe a little panic would behavior right now.

Cancer [6/22-7/22]: if you're a good Cancer, and there's no reason to suspect that you have fallen in with a bad crowd, then you are going to get sick of reading this stuff about how bad everything is right now. It's not that life is being unfair, no that's not it per se, it's just that there are large number of minor obstacles you have to overcome in order to move ahead. If it's not one stupid piece of paperwork, then it's some moronic person stuck in front of you at a traffic light. I hope you get the picture. Fortunately for both you and me, this clears up by the weekend.

Leo [7/23-8/23]: Don't you just hate it when your emotions keep bubbling up to the top? It's even worse when those emotions aren't what you want to feel right now, isn't it? A little sadness and a little melancholy are okay, but there's got to be more this mild form of depression. Perhaps you're just into the holiday mood, yet. And if you are in the holiday cheer already, forget me for a little while.

Virgo [8/24-9/23]: I love Virgo's. No one else is so attentive to details, so painstaking about making sure everything is perfect. Virgo's just give and give and give. Which is nice, I suppose, especially if one had a birthday coming up in the near future. You're feeling magnanimous this week, my Virgo friends, and if you want, this would be a good time to consider getting something for your Sagittarius friends who all have birthdays coming up. It's merely a friendly reminder, you know?

Libra [9/24-10/23]: It's not like I'm superstitious or anything, but a week which commences with Monday the 13th can bode no well. Except for the bad numbers on the beginning of the week, though, you should be experiencing a new growth pattern. That's the good news? The bad news? It could mean more work.

Scorpio [10/24-11/23]: Life couldn't be just a whole better, now could it? The way the sky lines up right now is definitely in your favor. You've earned a nice long rest, and now you're chance to take it. Get out to movie this week, go out and play. If you can, weather permitting, you might want to go fly a kite.

Sagittarius [11/24-12/21]: Watch out for wedding bands, unless, of course, that's what you're really looking for. In any case, the idea of romance and relationships is further exacerbated this week, just for you. Look for at least one maybe two or three proposals of marriage. The usual caveats apply.

Capricorn [12/22-1/20]: It's not like I'm superstitious or anything, but a week which commences with Monday the 13th can bode no well. Just wait, though, because the week unfolds a little bit better, if only by degrees as time slips past you. There is a certain quality of clarity that you have been seeking, and now is the time finally achieve what it is that you have been looking for. If that sounds like too much new age speak, then try it this way: Bubba, you've been lookin' fer a new girlfriend. By the end of the week, she'll be in yer arms.

Aquarius [1/21-2/18]: I've been worried about you and that Sagittarius you've been hanging around -- they're not very dependable, you know. Still, with an adequate sense of adventure, there's always some place to know that a good Sagittarius can promise to take you.

Pisces [2/19-3/22]: Okay, Pisces friends, the deal is this: there is a celestial battle going on, right now, over your head, and the control of your fate is in the planets right now. Who is going to win? In one corner, there is a comical Disney character who calls himself a Martian. In head to head, hand to hand combat with this fellow, there's a dog with long ears and silly smile. Who is it going to be? And which direction will it take? My prognostications indicate the force of good and right win out, but I'm always an optimist.
