Your Horoscope: Week of Nov. 21-27, 2012
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Nov. 21-27, 2012
This Week: Mercury goes direct Nov. 26, taking all of its discombobulated energy with it. Remember, it can be just as mischievous going out as it is coming in, so use caution during travel and with communication. Nov. 28 brings the answers to the lunar eclipse (Nov. 13) when the sun eclipses in Gemini. This is a powerful but erratic activity that can create a “knee jerk” reaction to elements that require thought and patience. In other words, don’t jump to conclusions and do or say something you will regret. Carefully lay out a plan to resolve conflict, and count to 10. When this activity clears, there will be breakthroughs in each and every one of your paths.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — You may feel like you need to get in for an appointment with your favorite psychologist or healer this week. It appears as though everyone around you has gone stark, raving mad. Retreat into your own realm, and take some time to yourself. Physical activity will remove the stress you have recently dealt with. Others give you the space you need. A love from your past returns.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — With the full moon eclipse Nov. 28 in Gemini, your energy will begin to lift and emotions are shifting for the better. You have had some losses and challenges, and your heart has been heavy. Expect a change for the better now. Romance is blessed with passionate aspects this week. Take advantage of this emotional windfall.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — With the full moon eclipse in your sign Nov. 28, you will be hit with some very powerful emotions you have been stuffing down over the past six months. Whenever we choose to avoid or mask these symptoms of grief, eventually it will come back to haunt us. If you have been one of the luckier Geminis and have done your work, you will find this is a time to celebrate. In either case, your personal life is taking a big step forward now in the right direction.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You may be curious as to why you have not heard from a certain individual as of late. Try not to assume it has anything to do with you. They may be overwhelmed with personal issues you are not aware of. When they are emotionally prepared, they will surface as though nothing has happened. Leave it alone and move forward. A work aspect is about to change for the better. Expect the best.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You’re beginning to feel like yourself again. Take an opportunity to make connections with friends and family. A new birth on a personal or professional level will remove the heaviness from your heart. Exchange energy with pure individuals. A boys’/girls’ night out may be needed soon. This will help you blow off some steam.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Feeling spread a little thin appears to be an emotional issue at this time. You’re hanging on the edge, and it isn’t a comfortable place to be. Expect a situation to work out as the universe intended. Sometimes it doesn’t always go the way we envision it. A romantic situation takes on a new form now.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You may need to offer some emotional or financial support to another this week. Either way, you end up on top as a result of this action. You’re hearing from a love from your past at this time. This helps to tie up loose ends for the future. Your new focus in love may have you questioning the motives of this individual. Let it be for now. Focus on your long-term goals instead.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — A self-employed or self-contracted work aspect opens new doors for you. Embrace your confidence levels, and allow them to work in your favor. Try to get out and about over the next weekend. Enjoy the company of those whom you have not had time for recently. This will do you a world of good in the long haul. An unexpected windfall arrives this week. At the 11th hour, you’re back on track.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Try not to take the behavior of another too personally now. Remember, this has nothing to do with you, even if another tries to project it on you. Don’t take this emotional baggage on; you have enough of your own to contend with. Activity with legal aspects provides a light at the end of the tunnel. A breakthrough with career is evident. Grab the brass ring.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — You have felt sensitive and insecure recently. Your intuition has played a major part in this situation. You may be worried about another’s health or emotional state. You will see a major change in this aspect shortly. A friend from your past will surface at this time. You will be delighted with the information you receive.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — A family member may be helping you align your romantic sector. Try not to fight this so hard. It takes more energy to hide and block ourselves from companionship than it actually does to embrace and enjoy it. This isn’t as complicated as you’re making it out to be. Career moves and upgrades are on the forefront.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Take stock in what you have, count your blessings and own your responsibilities. Looking at loss will do you no good now. An upgrade in your career sector is evident at this time. Take advantage of this opportunity, and let the powers that be know you are up for the challenge. You will find a great amount of satisfaction with this new endeavor.
