Aries

Starting in November, you’ve got the whole world in your hands, my powerful Aries. But before we get into more on that later in the month, you might experience some surprising financial news this week involving any shared money or benefits with a partner. This blow will force you to reassess how you’re going about handling your funds and you may need to help out a friend in need after they experience an abrupt change. Venus retrogrades in your relationship sector on Wednesday, causing you to have to have pay attention to whatever needs repairing in your love life. Just remember, you got this!

Taurus 

Expected the unexpected this week when it comes to your love life. While you’ll see much stability and career success later in November, this week sees Uranus in your relationship sector opposing Venus, which is still in retrograde. You might see a curveball in your relationship on Wednesday, by way of either a sudden breakup or a reconciliation of a past relationship, even though you know it will probably continue to be unstable. Hold on, bull! You can work through this.

Gemini 

Throughout Venus’s retrograde, you’ve had to do some major rewriting to your stories of love and money, Gemini. This Wednesday when she retrogrades in your personal relationship sector, you’ll feel this blow even harder. Remember that everything comes in cycles, though, and this won’t last long. Maybe you’re hung up on an ex or not feeling the passion with your current paramour. This too shall pass. Whatever you’re currently feeling will be amplified come November, for better or for worse.

Cancer

Sorry to say it, Cancer, but this week could be all about drama, drama, drama. You might learn of a secret that will affect your relationship on Wednesday and experience an abrupt breakup. We’re sorry for whatever betrayal you may feel, but know that your Cancer dignity will be intact, something you’re always good at. Hold on to that confidence and come out of this week stronger without losing faith in love. Come the rest of November, it’s all about a jumpstart to your career. Don’t retreat too deep into that shell because greater things are on the horizon for you, my cangrejo!

Leo

The second week of November is going to you bring you all the luck in the world, Leo, but in the meantime, you will find yourself fixated on that irritating Venus retrograde that’s been occupying your brain so much lately. It’s going to be pretty impossible to focus on anything else as past experiences dwell on your mind, but that doesn’t mean it’s set in stone. Whatever you’re reeling over, you will be given the opportunity to make things right and settle your soul.

Virgo 

I swear, it’s truly unfair what a lucky Venus retrograde you Virgos have been granted, but considering how calm, cool, and collected you are as a sign, I guess you deserve it! You may hear some positive news from a family member this week that will be a cause for celebration. Congrats! Whatever the circumstance may be, it will help you and your partner to remember to focus on the good over the bad and further be thankful for each other’s honest love for one another.

Libra

With Venus retrograding in your personal sector on Wednesday, you’re definitely not feeling confident this week, Libra. In fact, you may be internalizing things so hard that you think everything going wrong is entirely your fault. While this may be what you feel, it’s definitely not what’s truly going on. In fact, your feeling this way means the complete opposite — that you care enough to think the blame is on you. Let this remind you of how beautiful and great you really are and keep up the hard work like you’ve been doing. It’s paying off.

Scorpio

It’s really hard to read the barometer of your love life this week, Scorpio, but know that November will essentially be providing you with a reset button from the universe. For right now, it’s hard to tell what the truth of your love life is, with you feeling passionate and hopeful one day and ready to walk away from it the next. Come Wednesday, expect a past situation to come back knockin’ on your door, and not necessarily for the better. Hold on tight and stand your ground, scorpion!

Sagittarius 

This week brings you the clarity you need about overcoming a love situation that just wasn’t serving you, Sag. You’ve dwelled on this for a while and while I know we keep reiterating how important self-love and care is for you right now, we’re delighted that you’re finally about to see the light. You’ve had the power to overcome this situation for some time, and now you’re realizing it. November is going to present lots of new directions for you, but that’s cherished information I’m going to have to save for you until next week!

Capricorn

Hmm, this week could be a weird one, Cap. Your chart is showing that a fiesta could present some odd turns in your relationship sector. Remember, we’re still in Venus retrograde, so either a past love or someone you turned down once before pops back up and you give them a second chance? Or maybe you’ve got a hunch a friend of yours is going for your significant other. This all goes down in your sector on Wednesday, which happens to be Halloween, so whatever party you attend is bound to bring you some…interesting new developments. Godspeed!

Aquarius

November is about to show you just how important your friends are for your personal growth in joy, and it starts as early as this week. Stay social and agree to any invites to parties where you’re bound to make important new friendships or happen upon a promising new love relationship. If you’re already partnered, you and your love just might throw the best Halloween party that you couldn’t be more proud of — because it was spent with each other and the friends you value the most.

Pisces

Be wary of saying something you might regret this week, Pisces! November is about to bring you some major career successes you’ve been eagerly awaiting and definitely deserve, but for right now you might have to tend to your significant other and their financial situation. Perhaps they’ve made a career change and have taken an unforeseen pay cut. Make sure not to harp too much on them and their decision, because having their back is all they need right now and your love will be better for it. Starting next week, expect wonderful news in your professional life that we’ll have to hold off on telling you for right now!

Update: According to TMZ, Naya Rivera’s body has been found in Lake Piru after she went missing last week. Rivera’s disappearance has sent shockwaves of grief throughout the entertainment community as days passed and authorities combed the lake.

TMZ is reporting that the body found in Lake Piru is Naya Rivera.

TMZ was the first source to confirm Kobe Bryant’s death before the family could be contacted. They are now reporting that the body found is Rivera and that they were told by law enforcement contacts within Ventura County. A press conference is happening at 2 p.m. local time by law enforcement to address the discovery.

Last week, the sheriff’s department told the public that it was unlikely Rivera’s body would resurface because of debris.

At a press conference, Ventura County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Kevin Donoghue said that the debris of trees and plants under the water could cause the body to be entangled under the surface. Coupled with the poor visibility underwater, Office Sgt. Donoghue was not optimistic about the department’s chances of finding the body.

“We’re putting our best foot forward to try and locate her. We’re using all the assets that are available to us. We’re using technology like sonar,” he said at the press conference. “We have experts who have dove this lake who know it inside and out, where debris pockets might be, we’re relying on their expertise to help us in that endeavor. We’re going to do everything we can to find her.”

Original: “Glee” star Naya Rivera is presumed dead after going missing in southern California. The actress was on a boat in Lake Piru with her 4-year-old son when she went missing July 8 in Ventura County.

Authorities are searching for Naya Rivera after going missing.

Naya Rivera is presumed dead after her young son was found alone in a boat in Lake Piru. The lake is in Los Padres National Forest in Ventura County. Rivera’s son was found asleep on the boat three hours after Rivera rented the boat for the mother-son outing. According to officials, the son said that he and Rivera went for a swim and that she didn’t get back on the boat. CNN reports that the child was wearing a life vest while an adult life vest was found on the boat.

The search was paused overnight between Wednesday and Thursday and resumed as a recovery mission.

Fans do not think that Ventura County Sheriff’s are doing enough in the search for the actress. Emotions are high as fans share their grief and shock at Rivera’s sudden disappearance. According to Deputy Chris Dyer, the water where the boat was found is about 40 feet deep and that wind is a big factor in that part of the lake.

Authorities have classified the search as a recovery in a signal that they believe Rivera to be dead.

A recovery mission means that authorities are looking to recover a body from the lake. The news has devastated Rivera’s friends and family who want her brought home safe. Her son is reportedly doing well and is with relatives as authorities search for his mother in the lake.

Celebrities are sending messages hoping for Rivera to be alive.

Rivera wrote a memoir titled “Sorry, Not Sorry,” which gives an intimate look into her life during and after “Glee.” The actress was open and honest in her memoir bringing up some of the darkest and toughest times she endured and how it shaped her in the years that followed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Rivera’s loved ones.

Family Sets Up GoFundMe To Help Paletero In Chicago Retire

Family Sets Up GoFundMe To Help Paletero In Chicago Retire

Every now and then there is a video or some news that bubbles up through the noise that makes you feel good. There’s another one of those stories coming out of Chicago thanks to a family helping a local paletero.

A viral video shows a family buying a paletero’s entire cooler of paletas.

The family wanted to help the paletero finish his work for the day because it was Father’s Day. After buying him out, the family decided to go one further for the older mand and set up a GoFundMe to help him retire for the life of selling paletas. Don Rosario, the paletero in the video, is 70 years old and is a staple of the East Side community in Chicago.

A GoFundMe for his retirement is raising a lot of money to help him out.

Selling paletas is exhausting work. Walking around all day long in the heat while trying to sell paletas is a demanding job. This family is taking it on themselves to help Rosario finally retire from the work so he can rest and enjoy his golden years.

There was so much love for Rosario that the fundraiser had to be closed and then reopened.

The family who set up the GoFundMe closed the fundraiser at one point, according to an update. This is because they were waiting to get his contact info and the fundraiser has exploded to more than $40,000. Then, after getting the info and enough interest to keep donating, the fundraiser was reopened. If you want to add to Rosario’s growing pot, you can click here.

The act of kindness that started on Father’s Day is still going and giving people hope.

These are dark times. We are still battling a virus. The U.S. is being forced to finally confront centuries of racial inequality. There are so many things happening that can make us mad. However, stories like these remind us that there is still so much good happening out there.

This is a ray of light in a world that is often so confusing right now.

“We’ve been left speechless, there were people from all over the states donating,” Michaelangelo Mosqueda, the GoFundMe creator, told Block Club Chicago. “It has been really eye-opening to see that when we all come together we do some great things for others.”
