Your Horoscope: Week of Nov. 25- Dec. 1, 2009
This Week: Welcome the sunny sign of Sagittarius, when all of our hopes, dreams and ambitions can come true. Manifest your goals and allow room for your every wish to come true. This is the best time to start a new business or shift your work into a new realm of possibilities. The universe is open for suggestions.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—A large gathering of people creates fabulous business opportunities for you in the weeks to come. You’re able to network with those of like mind and heart. You may be collaborating with another on a creative project. Try to explore the visions within, and release them out into the real world. You will be amazed at the reaction this creates.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)-—An annoying neighbor or so-called friend could begin to get on your last nerve this week. It may be time to set a firmer boundary with this individual. He or she just doesn’t seem to “get the hint” on his or her own. Taurus tends to take everything in, then explode when push comes to shove. Don’t allow this person to get the best of you. He or she is not the brightest bulb in the box, and is not aware of his or her own ignorance. The weekend allows time for a getaway. Take advantage of this aspect.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—Support the decisions of a loved one this week, especially regarding home and property. He or she may feel a little nervous about changes, and needs you to encourage him or her to come forward. Your financial sector is improving with leaps and bounds. Your hard work and determination is finally paying off “big time.” This would be a good time to look at your long-term goals.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—Watch your tongue a little closer this week. You may not be aware of how sharp it has become recently. If you can dish it out but can’t take it, you may be put in an awkward position shortly. Somebody you’ve been poking at may give it to you with both barrels. Midweek provides you with a new business opportunity. Take advantage of this upgrade, and follow through with all of your leads.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—If it feels like you’re going through a grieving process. Try not to stifle these feelings. Just allow them to flow and move through your system. This will not continue to plague you forever; this is only a temporary vibration. By week’s end, things begin to lighten up a bit. Friends and loved ones find humor in the strangest ways. This becomes highly contagious, and it definitely lightens the load in the near future.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—You’re finally back on track financially. Slowly, but surely, you’ve reached your goals and removed restrictions from your life. Your social calendar begins to fill up. You’re trying to balance business and pleasure in the weeks to come. Try not to beat yourself up over everything you don’t get done. Instead, focus on what you do accomplish.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—You may be worried about a female friend or co-worker this week, and for good reason. A loved one around you feels as though he or she is slipping into a dark place. You can see this, but you don’t know exactly what to do about it. Count on your spirit guides to give you the right insight. After the full moon, you will see improvements in all sectors of your life.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—You are very aware of how the past has affected your present state of mind. You have come to the conclusion that you will no longer allow the same pattern to affect the present. This is a huge accomplishment for you. Now, you can receive the benefits of your hard work and efforts without complications. Midweek brings new opportunities for finance. Take advantage of this growth and development.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—Over the past week, you may have felt like you’re wearing a sign on your back that says “kick me hard.” This is a spiritual test. The message? Stand up for yourself! You don’t have to please all of the people all of the time. The most important thing you need to do now is please yourself. Opportunities pour in for business. Make sure you’re setting time aside for activities that release tension and stress. The weekend provides you with plenty of time to relax and enjoy your surroundings.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—Things begin to simmer down in the workplace this week. After the past few weeks of overdramatic pressure, this is a welcome sign of relief. This is a good time to consider booking a trip and getting away. You have had your ears filled with nonsense, and you’re exhausted with it all. Family is on board for a little adventure as well. Humor is the best medicine.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—News from family may start off as a bit of a shock until you get the full story. Don’t jump to conclusions just yet. Listen and gather all of the information. Then, you can come up with a plan to resolve this unusual issue. The weekend may bring some unexpected guests to your home. At first, you may feel a bit annoyed by it. But as the weekend begins to progress, you find yourself surrounded with fun and laughter.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—Shocking news that arrives midweek may have you rethinking your life and your long-term goals. It’s amazing how short life is and how much ground we can cover when we are put to the test. You will be in a position to help an older female out with a dilemma. By week’s end, you will see how much of a positive influence you have become.
