Horoscopes: Monday, November 20, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There's this little trap that happens - an unhelpful habit of mind. It has to do with thinking of happiness as a "then" or a "later" thing when happiness is pretty much always a "now" thing.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There's a time to think carefully and thoroughly, but this isn't it. Don't take your thoughts too seriously. They're not who you are. Move more.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Inner peace, evenness, satisfaction - it all comes from physical challenge today. Engage your muscles, and your mind and spirit will get just what they need to help you feel right with the world.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You want to show up strong. Perception is important, and it does impact what opportunities you get. Sometimes you make the strongest impression when you don't care so much about how you're being perceived.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There's an opportunity in everything. For instance, miscommunication is an opportunity to get to know what another person really wanted or expected to hear. It's also a chance for better understanding.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The restlessness you feel can be positively interpreted. Let restlessness be a leader that points you toward a more successful path.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don't like what's going on, so start right away with the change. Don't worry too much about what to change. A tweak of any degree to any part of the equation will make a difference.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are very few people out there who can work everything out in their minds before they begin. Most people learn as they go. Don't worry if you don't know what you're doing.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Much good will come of an attempt to assess and manage expectations. Yours aren't the same as theirs. Where are the discrepancies? What's not matching up?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Good interviewers don't worry too much about seeming smart and letting everyone know they did their research. What makes for a quality interaction is honest curiosity.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). No one likes to misplace things. But if you find yourself losing the items of your daily life, it's a chance to get organized, downsize for simplicity's sake or determine what is truly important to you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The difference between people you want to be around and people you don't want to be around will be immediately apparent in the way they deal with the annoyances of daily life.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 20). A financial opportunity in the next 10 weeks will be your cosmic birthday gift. Nothing is holding you back from adventure in early 2018, so go on and fly. Your family members will cheer you on. Later, they'll also give you a new direction. Someone who loves you wholeheartedly will make a wish for you that comes true. Cancer and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 38, 12, 7 and 49.
