Your Horoscope: Week of Nov. 30-Dec. 6, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Nov. 30-Dec. 6, 2011
This Week: Not much planetary activity this week, other than Mercury retrograde continues to monkey around with us for another couple of weeks — through Dec. 13. At least by now we are getting used to this mischievous vibration, and we can adjust accordingly. Romantic elements can bring up past relationships or force us into running into a “love from our past.” Just giving you a heads up is all. It doesn’t always have to be a bad thing — sometimes it just is what it is.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Gatherings with friends and neighbors provide some interesting information regarding your long-term goals. You are in a position to expand and explore the unknown. What you find out will benefit you and those around you in the long run. Grab the brass ring. Every effort you make causes a positive rippling effect.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — You need to connect with your past to influence your future in the best possible light. Those who have been “on the back burner” in your life will now become a prominent influence. No hard feelings, just conflicting schedules and overwhelming obstacles have set a distance between you and your loved ones. Now is the time to reconnect. You will feel inner peace with the information you receive.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — You may have “shot your mouth off” one too many times, and this week you may need to pay the piper as a result of your behavior. When all is said and done, would it have been too much for you to acknowledge the love that was provided for you unconditionally? As you find yourself on the outside looking in, pay close attention to the lesson that has been aligned for you now. This may come in handy in the years to come.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Romance is key this week, and all eyes are on you! Accept the fact you have a lot to offer those within your circle as well as those who admire you from afar. Pay close attention to a “certain someone” who has been tracking your whereabouts for quite some time. As you roll into the new year, it will be evident who your friends and allies are.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You need to rest this week. You have been “under the gun” with stress and strife the last six months. Take it easy, connect with friends, and keep your holiday celebrations simple and stress-free. You are being transformed into a beautiful being of light. Take note with the universe’s gifts that are provided to you now.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Concerns regarding a family member’s health may have you on “red alert” this week. Pay close attention to the signs that have not been brought to light, and follow up from there. Your intuition is running high, and you’re in the best place to “see the things” others may not be able to see. This could be a lifesaving event.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You may be feeling a bit under the weather early on this week. Stress and strife could be creating physical concerns for your long-term health. Take a step back, and put your own priorities first, at least for now. There is no reason you can’t take a time out at this time. When all is said and done, you have the clarity to move on.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You are becoming extremely concerned about the health and welfare of a female family member. Dreams and premonitions have you “spooked” beyond words. Know this: she will find her way through her darkest hours and come out shining like the sun. Until then, lend the emotional support she may need to get by. Your romantic sector is looking up.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Slowly and methodically create your “exit plan” out of a dead-end situation. No need to blow bells and whistles off and “alert the media” — you have been treated unfairly for the past six months or longer. The generous Sag has been taken advantage of to the limits. I pity the fool who has played with you in this realm. Karma has its bloody paybacks.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Lucky at work and lucky at love this week. Someone from your past whom you have had an eye on magically becomes “free” from the shackles of an unfulfilling relationship. Go slow and allow this person plenty of time to heal from the disaster they allowed to become a part of their life. In the end, you will be the hero.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Get on a plane, pick up the phone, do something to alleviate your loneliness for friends and family. You can no longer withstand this overwhelming grief. You are in a position to heal your life and those around you. By week’s end, you receive the recognition you deserve.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Celebrate your winnings this week. You are in a position to expand your financial sector to its fullest potential. Midweek, you may be a bit frustrated with a friend or co-worker. Try to see life through “their eyes.” If you can, you will be able to heal the world.
