Your Horoscope: Week of Nov. 23-29, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Nov. 23-29, 2011
This Week: Happy Thanksgiving, and happy Mercury retrograde Nov. 23-Dec. 13. Please be cautious with travel, e-mails and messages. Have a backup plan to spare yourself emotional difficulties. Nov. 25 is a solar eclipse in Sagittarius. This should ease some of the stressful elements that may have arrived the day before. Enjoy this little break in the monotony. Let others know how much you care.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — A change in job or residence has you elated. The powers that be will be offering you the opportunity of a lifetime. This will be a wish come true for you now. If you are not aware of what is to come, expect this to manifest by the end of January. An unexpected windfall arrives in the nick of time.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Legal documents and paperwork fall into place this week, allowing the benefits of your hard work and energy to shine through. You will feel a sense of relief aligning these aspects for the power of greater good. Midweek, set time aside for romance — you will be pleasantly surprised with the reception you will receive.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — You may be grieving a loss of some kind. Expect emotional backing from an unusual source. Someone understands exactly how you feel and is willing to help. By week’s end, you have a competitive edge within your field, and all eyes are on you.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Make your feelings known regarding a loved one or friendship this week. Others are not mind-readers, and your behavior may be confusing them as to what you really need from life. After a long heart-to-heart talk, you realize you are both on the same page. From there, the rest is history.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You are overwhelmed with love and energy. Finally, you are able to receive the support you’re entitled to without feeling as though the “other shoe is going to drop.” You may be concerned about the health or welfare of a female friend or family member. Keep your eyes and ears open for clues as to how you may be able to remedy an overexaggerated problem.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Travel is on your mind this week, and you’re hoping to put everything into place before you need to “head out.” Check and double-check scheduling as well as making sure your home-front responsibilities are secure. Once you have everything in alignment, you can enjoy time with friends and family.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — A competitive Earth-sign female may set out to make your life miserable early on this week. Rise above this petty emotional element, and carry on with all of your responsibilities as scheduled. Do not get sucked into this lower form of behavior. By week’s end, you will see he who laughs last, laughs best.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — An unexpected phone call provides an opportunity to improve the quality of your life. An upgrade in pay or a new responsibility with your current employment finds you “high as a kite.” Romance falls into a deeper level of commitment. Grab the brass ring and go for it.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — A past loan or debt due to you will magically take shape and form. This may be completely unexpected, but will definitely put a spring in your step this week. Many of you may have found as of late your energy lacking or anxiety at an all-time high. Expect your lackluster emotions to kick into high gear. You will pull it together by Christmas.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — A chance meeting with an old friend or family member provides unexpected information that will benefit you in the months to come. Many are working behind the scenes to help you obtain your goals. You are surprised at the amount of love and energy you receive this week. Don’t be — you deserve it.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Interesting artifacts appear as you begin to remove clutter from your home environment. You may find an emotional attachment to many of these items as they bring back beautiful memories from long ago. Stumbling across these aspects allows you to heal old wounds that you have tucked away. At week’s end, you are filled with boundless energy as a result of this time frame.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You are putting heads together with those of “like mind” to improve the quality of your life and career. You are past the point of impressed with how easily this flows, allowing you to expand your thinking process for the greater good of all. Seminars and workshops will influence your life. You will be in a position to offer an abundance of helpful information that is valuable to all.
