Written in the Stars: Horoscopes for the week of Nov. 3 – Nov. 9

After consulting a Ouija board during a prairie thunderstorm, Moonbeam and Asteroid were struck by a powerful cosmic lightning bolt and subsequently blessed with visionary astrological powers. They became vehicles for prophetic celestial wisdom, under one condition: that they share their insight with the Knox universe.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

With a little planning, you will be super productive this week, so long as you aren’t afraid to ask for help. Did you lend someone your bikini bottoms when they ran out of clean underwear? In exchange, ask them to help by quizzing you for your physics exam.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Get started on your Knox gossip blog, as Mercury has your communication skills set on high. Just make sure the Knox celebrities you create don’t get a big head. We don’t need a Knox Kardashian family.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This week, you could benefit from working with a spiritual guide, like Robin Metz, as your creativity achieves almost psychic proportions. Don one of his African masks and channel Hemingway for inspiration.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Do you have an idea for a corn-people and train-sound inspired art installation? Go guerilla. Drink a five-hour energy, stay up until four and do your work in the wee hours. When students and professors enter Borzello Hall in the morning, they’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)

Your go-with-the-flow water sign tendencies may be set aside this week as Mercury enters your house of ambition. This means you’re the one organizing the events and delegating the tasks. Assign your suitemates roles in your newest play, “Fiddler on the Roof of Post,” for a staged reading in the lobby.

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)

Venus has you attracted to exotic people this week. Is there a certain international student you’ve had your eye on? Brush up on your elementary German and go for it! It might be too early in the season for making gingerbread houses and drinking gluhwine, but talking over a couple of beers could get quite cozy.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)

You may be feeling a bit impulsive this week in both the love department and business ventures. Maybe you and your new significant other just had a great idea to start a nighttime shuttle from campus to Buffalo Wild Wings. But make sure you get everything in writing to prevent chaos and divide assets if there’s a spicy breakup.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

As the sign of the twins, you love dynamic duos. But be sure to remain realistic when it comes to relationships. The woman from Monmouth who found you on Facebook and claims to be your long-lost sister might be hiding something.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Mercury and Venus are moving into Sagittarius — and your sixth house of efficiency and health. Now is the perfect time to start training for the Jingle Bell 5K in Bloomington. Keep your eye on the prize, though, as the smiley face potatoes will prove tempting.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Treat yourself.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your creative powers combine with your nesting instincts now, making interior design the perfect outlet. Order those sky chairs, or that beanie baby hammock, you’ve been eyeing. Your roommates will appreciate the new aesthetic.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

If you’re having trouble making it to class, you might consider the work-from-home approach — could you double your GPA from your dorm room? Ask your professors if you can have a classmate Skype you the lecture and turn in assignments electronically. Just make sure you move every once in a while so you don’t get bedsores.
