That was Vanessa Villegas’ reaction after finding out what Ellen had in store for her family on “The Ellen Show.” Ellen invited the Villegas family to the show after a video featuring Vanessa’s daughter, Ellie, went viral. In the video, you see Ellie receiving a teddy bear for her birthday. Ellie is told to press a button on the teddy bear, which plays a voice recording of her father, David, a soldier who was in the middle of Army basic training in South Carolina. Ellie’s reaction is priceless.
After playing the video on the big screen, Ellen invited Vanessa and Ellie onto the stage, which was the first surprise — they had no idea they were going to appear on the show. Ellen then presented Vanessa and her daughter with a second surprise: David Villegas, Ellie’s father, appeared on the screen via satellite. In complete shock, Vanessa was brought to tears. Ellie couldn’t stop smiling. Ellen brought out a third surprise: a check for $25,000. The surprise brought both Vanessa and David to tears. They couldn’t thank Ellen enough. Just when the Villegas family thought the surprises were over, Ellen brought out a birthday gift for Ellie, a set of her favorite dolls, complete with accessories. At the end of that segment on the show, Vanessa was able to leave with the joy of seeing her husband and receiving a $25,000 check to help her family financially. Ellen comes through, again.
It’s that time again when Venus is in retrograde affecting most of our personal relationships. See how much drama is coming into your life this Wednesday.

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.
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.
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.

Don’t retreat too deep into that shell because greater things are on the horizon for you, my cangrejo!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
