November 2011 Leo Horoscope

Mix and mingle

Your mood turns more playful this month as planets move into your 5th House of Fun and Games. The action starts on Nov. 2, when communicative Mercury and captivating Venus enter extroverted Sagittarius to get the party started. Your inhibitions may fade when Mercury and Venus form spirited trines with unconventional Uranus on Nov. 3, and optimism could lead to foolishness on Nov. 7 when active Mars opposes phantasmagoric Neptune, tempting you to wear yourself out chasing fantasies. If you do wander off the beaten path, reality will call you back quickly with the Full Moon in sensible Taurus on Nov. 10.

Your balloon of optimism begins to inflate again on Nov. 20 when the Sun squares Neptune, sending hopes high with little regard for the facts. The Sun's entry into enthusiastic Sagittarius and your romantic 5th house on Nov. 22 warms your heart and attracts a spotlight and an audience for your delight.

You may have to put on the brakes when Mercury turns retrograde on Nov. 24, and prepare yourself for some backtracking during the next three weeks. The Sagittarius New Moon on Nov. 25 is a Solar Eclipse that connects with extravagant Jupiter, sending another signal that you need to exercise self-restraint.

Keep in Mind this Month
Maintain emotional balance to avoid being shaken by the extremes of unrealistic expectations and crashing disappointments.
