Horoscope: Nov. 17

November 17, 2009|By Holiday Mathis

Aries (March 21-April 19): A seemingly irreconcilable problem begs for a new approach. This is a case where changing the way you see a situation will be the same as solving it.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): You are one of those people for whom good work is its own reward. But isn't it nice to have it recognized once in a while? Someone will pay you a well-deserved compliment.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): Determination is key. These momentary setbacks will be over soon enough. It's a testament to your fortitude that you have persevered.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): You're so likable that you will have strangers making up excuses just to talk to you. Is it your disarming smile? Your easy way with words? The answer: all of the above.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Taking the bad with the good isn't as easy as it sounds. Fortunately, the good you gain today will vastly outweigh the bad you must put up with.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): If your day had a theme sound, it would be the sound of a cork popping open from a bottle of champagne. This is a day to celebrate.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): The application of preventive measures in the here and now will reap myriad benefits in the soon to come. Be bold, be steadfast, and you'll enjoy a moment of glorious reward.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): When asked by well-meaning Western disciples whether they might join her efforts, Mother Teresa would often reply: "Find your own Calcutta." Opportunities to help those in need are everywhere.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): There will be many obstacles to doing good work today. You'll be able to turn more than one into an opportunity. So when someone says "no," take it as your cue to ponder exciting options.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It doesn't feel as though the work before you is inspiring enough to cultivate your talent. Go walking, and you'll come back with a new attitude.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Eat steak for breakfast, pancakes for dinner. Take out your ruled paper and write perpendicular to the lines. Turn the equation on its side and see if you can't solve it that way.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Make the most of your social time. You'll like the way it feels to have your friends around you. They will provide support, security and style.

Today's birthday (Nov. 17): You will care for yourself better than ever this year with efforts to stay fit and positive. Changes to your diet improve your vitality. You select just the right attire and decorate your physical environment in such a way as to make a stellar impression on others. A love connection inspires you to create in January. Pisces and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 44, 33, 18 and 50.
