BNN presents a weekly horoscope for 2 – 8 November…

#Aries: your family wants to control your actions. Although it’s nothing new, don’t expect to convince them otherwise too easily. You will be faced with a dilemma – your duty vs. your personal freedom. If you plan your time well, you will do both.

#Taurus: life requires balance – if you spent the last week working, you should consider slowing down a bit for this week. You should definitely try something new this week, especially if you want changes in your life.

#Gemini: regardless of the weather, you have to get out of your home and breathe some air. Be generous this week even if someone is against you. A truth will be revealed to you that will change your opinion about current events. You definitely need to let go this week.

#Cancer: if you have been fruitlessly following a dream that has been eluding you for years, it is a sign that you have been doing something wrong: stop and think for a second. Things that seem bad to you actually protect you from things that are much worse. Keep that in mind.

#Leo: count your money, always be aware of your financial state – you can expect unexpected expenses in the near future. If you manage to concentrate on a single thing, you will be able to find solutions to all of your problems.

#Virgo: hardships may force you to give up. In reality, however, it is all a mere test before reaching your goal. You will have time to rest and enjoy some peace and quiet this week. Spend weekends the way you see fit.

#Libra: gather your strength and do what you have been planning to for years. Otherwise the thought will never go away and you will not be able to move on. Conflicts with colleagues or friends are possible. If you want to avoid that, distance yourself from them.

#Scorpio: you have earned a rest and you need it. Use the time given to you to think about yourself and your relationships with others. A person from your past will re-enter your life. You will be surprised how much things have changed over the years.

#Sagittarius: others will want to interfere with your plans; it will test your patience. Fight against your desire to shout at someone – it’s not worth it! Focus on what is dear to you. Admit your mistakes if you want to overcome them and become better.

#Capricorn: look around you – it’s already November, but where is the progress in your work? Time to pull yourself together. First impressions are important, especially this week, when you meet someone you will play a major role in your career.

#Aquarius: don’t think how things could have been – everything is the way it should be! You haven’t yet noticed the good things in your life. When relationships don’t go the way you’d want, simply look at everything from a distance.

#Pisces: this week will start off peacefully, but because you have no intention to argue, everything will be resolved easily. The stars will inspire you this week – you will feel overflowing with energy, but where should you use that energy?
