Horoscopes for the week of November 17th   

I write because I can. I sing because I can. I love because I can.

Liz Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love) was recently featured in an article on Huffington Post that discussed why she was “against balance,” i.e., the notion of seeking balance in life. The author and spiritual warrior explained how seeking balance can be detrimental to simple living, and that the goal shouldn’t be for balance, it should be for presence wherever we are at any given moment in order to embrace the beautiful chaos that makes life worth living. I couldn’t agree more.

The mindful practice of being present is what makes the ebb and flow of life more manageable. We become more willing and able to take the good with the bad, and in the process, we get better at being more grateful for all the good. Life was never meant to be anything but lived; as we are all spiritual warriors, we have the capacity to create our own idea of what that entails along the way. Of course, it’s not always going to be easy. But you may be surprised with how much easier it gets once you can let go of the need to keep things balanced.

We’re in for an upswing this week with the Sun’s entry into Fire sign Sagittarius on Saturday, which coincides with a New Moon (and thus, a new beginning). Venus has entered the mix too, moving through the sign of the Archer until the end of this month and into the second week of December. Sagittarius represents optimism and hope for all that is true, so this is quite timely given the dense emotional energy that Scorpio tends to stir (all necessary for discovering our own deep and profound truth, but dense nonetheless). We can expect to embrace the good again, especially as we prepare for 2014’s grand finale!

Check your horoscope below to see what’s in store, and be sure to read for your Ascendant sign too.
