Mitú Weekly Horoscope Nov 5 – Nov 11

Aries

Welcome to a brand new month, Aries! Venus is still retrograde in your romantic sector until the 6th, but its effects weaken with each day, so don’t feel disheartened about love as you think you should be. You’ll feel sparks flying with a potential new someone when out with friends this week, and although they may be new, you definitely feel like you’ve met them before. Since Aries are known for their impatience, you don’t trust any connection that doesn’t have immediate chemistry. Good thing this is it! If you’re already in a relationship, expect fresh new sparks with your steady mate, and even some grand financial news that benefits both of you. This week will bring you new ambitions and the means to make them happen. You love staying on the move, so take the progressive action for new knowledge and skills on the 7th and 8th to continue making yourself unstoppable!

Taurus

This is a great time for you to strengthen your work and romantic relationships, Taurus! Venus is still doing that retrograde dance until the 6th, but her power progressively wanes each day. Remember that when Jupiter moves into your 8th house of regeneration and sex on November 8th! This is all about basking in the joy that is your current relationship and seeing your connection and commitment to one another get even stronger. Things will get more serious, but only in the best way. As a Taurus, your steady bull nature makes you the most loyal sign of the zodiac. Single Taureans should spend this time to focus on loving themselves. You work for everyone else, so put that effort back on yourself!

Gemini

It’s all about your goals right now, Gemini! With such dual personalities, you definitely have a lot! On November 7th, the Moon begins a new phase in intense Scorpio, encouraging you to work on those ideas you might have left sitting on the backburner for far too long. Remember to set aside some time to work towards those goals each day and before long you’ll be amazed at the progress you made. It’s all about time management. You’ll really begin to see it pay off later in the month! Jupiter moves into your relationship sector on the 8th, so make sure to place yourself in the center of attention as best as you can. It’ll be well-received!

Cancer

We know Cancers have great taste and love their creature comforts. Make that crab shell of yours even more comfortable and beneficial to your well-being by giving your schedule and living situation an overhaul. Get more sleep, eat better, and get more sunshine to make sure you’re keeping yourself at your best. This focus on personal rest and rejuvenation will payoff when Mercury goes retrograde on November 16th. Single? Wednesday’s New Moon is smack in your romance sector.

Leo

Leos already seem to have everything work out for them, right? As a regal lion with a commanding presence, it’s hard not to. Expect to see a positive and light energy surrounding you from through the end of the year when Jupiter moves into your 5th house of pleasure on November 8th.

Virgo

Things might start to feel slow at work this week, Virgo, but don’t let this get you down. Take the opportunity to reboot before Mercury goes retrograde on the 16th. Make sure to spend more time at home or with loved ones who can offer good life advice. A deep conversation with your partner will only bring you closer together as you feel safe enough to reveal some of the darker facts about yourselves neither of you shares with just anyone. Single? Any connections that don’t feel deep enough aren’t. Only focus on genuine humans now, but that’s also your nature, Virgo!

Libra

November will feel a little haywire for you, Libra, and it all starts going down this week. On the 4th, you’ll feel a stroke of bad luck when Mercury goes wonky in your sector before it goes fully retrograde on the 16th. You’ll be able to express yourself better when you come out of the stress and shock on the 8th and Jupiter has your back in your 3rd house of communication. On the bright side, that pesky and heartbreaking Venus retrograde is losing her power with each day until she’s completely gone on November 6th. This week, you won’t even feel her anymore when your romantic sector is nothing short of glowing, glowing, glowing! Those butterflies and sweet connections are on full blast this week, Libra!

Scorpio

Focus on the home this week, Scorpio. Now that Uranus has migrated from your relationship sector and into your work one, you’ll finally get the breathing room you need and can finally relax and watch things fall into place for you now. This may sound weird for you, a sign of passion and transformation, but in order for you to receive the pleasure you seek, you must first sit still for a moment and appreciate the life you do have. Focusing on your base helps to center you before work and relationships speed back up again. Such as on the 8th, when you can expect some great new financial prospects with the help of lucky Jupiter!

Sagittarius

Your ruling planet Jupiter is on the move this week, Sag, which means it’s all about you and focusing on finding yourself again. That pesky Venus retrograde offered you a dose of heartbreak but has her power decreases each day until she turns direct on the 6th, you’ll be feeling that aggravation less and less. I guess all I can really say about this week and the rest of the month for you is luck, luck, luck! It’s all thanks to that Jupiter and its good fortune, which will have you feeling victorious in every aspect of your life right now. Take advantage and strike while the iron’s hot!

Capricorn

A New Moon in Scorpio on the 7th will help calm any relationship problems you’ve been fretting over, Cap. Venus ends her stressful retrograde on the 6th, so at this time you’ll be able to better communicate what’s on your mind without the messages getting crossed. You’ll feel a sense of renewal this week as your spiritual planet Jupiter makes his moves on the 8th. You’ll be able to see everything that was hazy and uncertain in your love life much clearer now and feel a calming sense of relief that if things are meant to work out, they will. If they don’t it’s for the best. What’s wonderful is that you’ve been through enough to be fine with whatever outcome. You’ve had the time to balance yourself.

Aquarius

Funny to say this with Thanksgiving just around the corner (and maybe you’re still finishing up those Halloween clearance-priced candies, as well!), but this week you’ll be thinking about ways to improve your health. Maybe all those sweet treats have started to take their toll and making your body feel out of whack. A healthy body is a healthy mind, so focus on getting yourself in the condition that makes you feel your best and stick to this plan. After spending so much time focusing on your career, lucky Jupiter moves into your 11th house of friends on the 8th, making you want to spend more time with those you enjoy instead of long hours at the office. Rightfully so! Tis the season for being with people we love.

Pisces

Don’t let your financial worries get the best of you, my anxious fishy. Whatever money frustrations you’ve been experiencing are about to see an easier resolution. Perhaps you accrued a debt without realizing its depth or have to help out someone close to you who’s stuck in a bind. This week will show you the light at the end of the tunnel, so don’t point fingers or play the blame game, because this is a time of realizing healthy solutions and knowing how to make wiser choices moving forward. Mercury will retrograde next week on the 16th, but having everything in place before this transition should make this a smooth one, especially with Jupiter in your 10th house of career on the 8th, so seize this moment to make the professional leaps you’ve been waiting for!

Radical Feminists Have Seized Control of a Federal Building in Mexico in Protest of the Government’s Apathy Towards Rampant Femicide

Radical Feminists Have Seized Control of a Federal Building in Mexico in Protest of the Government’s Apathy Towards Rampant Femicide

Last week, Mexican feminist activists took over the National Human Rights Commissions federal building in a move to bring greater awareness to the scourge of gender-based violence and femicide that has racked Mexico for decades.

According to the federal Interior Secretariat, the statistics in Mexico have recently taken a turn for the worse.

Domestic violence against women has became an even more acute problem since the pandemic has forced women to stay insider with their abusers. Emergency distress calls reporting domestic violence have risen by 50%.

The occupation of the Human Rights building is just another chapter in the saga of the “Ni Una Menos” (Not One More Woman) movement, an anti-femicide collective born in Argentina that has steadily been gaining steam in Mexico since 2019.

In recent years, anti-femicide demonstrations have been sparked by various heinous crimes against women or girls that have been largely overlooked by law enforcement officials.

Unfortunately, the government of Mexico has appeared to be apathetic to the wave of femicide that is overwhelming the women of their country.

Recently, when President Andrés Manuel López Obrador was asked to address Mexico’s gender violence epidemic, he demurred, stating that he didn’t “want femicide to detract” from the raffle his administration was holding for the sale of the presidential airplane.

As for the feminist activists at the heart of Ni Una Menos and the federal building occupation, the government’s failure to respond to anti-woman violence is the primary fuel for their anger. 

“We’re here so that the whole world will know that in Mexico they kill women and nobody does anything about it,” said Yesenia Zamudio to the LA Times. According to Zamudio, she is still seeking justice for the murder of her 19-year-old daughter four years ago.

The women of Mexico appear to be fed up, grasping at any and all tactics that have the potential to incite change on a grander scale.

Their tactics may seem dramatic to some, but it’s undeniable that they are no longer being ignored. As of now, the radical activists are pulling attention-grabbing stunts like decorating a portrait of Mexican Revolution leader Francisco Madero with lipstick and purple hair.

They’re also making headlines for vandalizing the federal building’s walls and splashing paint on the doors of the presidential palace.

One thing is for sure: something has to change. Otherwise, thousands of innocent women and girls will continue to be raped, abused, and murdered while their perpetrators escape with immunity.

Joe Biden Speaks Alongside ‘Fearless Fighter’ Kamala Harris In First Appearance And Recalls Her Family’s Immigrant Story

Joe Biden Speaks Alongside ‘Fearless Fighter’ Kamala Harris In First Appearance And Recalls Her Family’s Immigrant Story

After weeks of speculation and anticipation, presidential candidate Joe Biden announced on Tuesday that he has officially picked his running mate.

In a history-making announcement, Biden revealed that he had tapped California Sen. Kamala Harris to be his VP Pick.

“I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate,” Biden announced in a tweet.

On Wednesday, Biden held his first campaign event alongside running mate Kamala Harris in Delaware.

During their speeches, the two candidates wore masks and kept their distance in keeping with COVID-19 standards.

Speaking about his VP pick, Biden described Harris as coming from an “America’s story.” Biden described Harris as “a child of immigrants” who “knows personally how immigrant families enrich our country as well as the challenges of what it means to grow up Black and Indian-American in the United States of America,” he explained. “And this morning, all across the nation, little girls woke up, especially little Black and brown girls that feel overlooked and undervalued in their communities, but today — today just maybe they’re seeing themselves for the first time in a new way as president and vice presidents.”

In a speech of her own, Harris emphasized the importance of family and urged citizens to vote.  “We need a mandate that proves that the past few years do not represent who we are or who we aspire to be,” she said. “Joe likes to say that character is on the ballot. And it’s true,” she explained. “I’ve had a lot of titles over my career and certainly vice president will be great. But ‘Momala’ will always be the one that means the most.”

Harris’s nomination makes her the first Black and first Indian-American woman on either major party’s presidential ticket.

Harris is a former prosecutor from California who challenged Biden in her own presidential bid last year. Her nomination makes her the fourth woman to appear on a major presidential ballot. Before her, Geraldine Ferraro ran as a Democratic vice presidential nominee in 1984. In 2008, Republican Sarah Palin ran as a vice presidential nominee, later in 2016, Hillary Clinton became the Democratic presidential nominee.

Biden’s choice was one that has long been in the works. In March of this year, he revealed that he would make a point to have a woman as his running mate and in July he announced that he had narrowed his picks down to four Black women.

Kamala Harris was elected to Congress in 2016.

This has been Harris’ first term as a senator. Before, she served as the California attorney general. During her time as AG, Harris formed a lasting friendship with Biden’s late son Beau who was attorney general at the time in Delaware. Writing about Beau’s death, in her memoir The Truths We Hold, Harris recalled that “there were periods when I was taking the heat when Beau and I talked every day, sometimes multiple times a day,” she wrote in her memoir. “We had each other’s backs.”

Biden’s son Beau died in 2015 from brain cancer. Harris attended his funeral.

During his announcement, Biden mentioned Harris’ friendship with his son.

“I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse,” Biden tweeted. “I was proud then, and I’m proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.”

So far, it seems there are quite a bit of Harris x Biden supporters.

Fans were quick to give their support and applaud her candidacy.

In a tweet acknowledging her nomination, Harris wrote “@JoeBiden can unify the American people because he’s spent his life fighting for us. And as president, he’ll build an America that lives up to our ideals. I’m honored to join him as our party’s nominee for Vice President, and do what it takes to make him our Commander-in-Chief.”

Here’s to 2020 y’all. Get ready to make history.
