Week of Nov. 26-Dec. 2, 2014
This Week: With my mother’s passing — Ruthe I. Swenson McNiff, Nov. 20, 2014 — I have dedicated this section of my column to those who helped me care for her in the past four years of our journey: the wonderful people at Fair Oaks Rehabilitation Center in South Beloit, who went above and beyond to make her last days comfortable; Andrew, Carol, Tina and Donna, among the many who worked as a team to provide the best care; as well as Family Centered Hospice care (especially Miss Vickie) for allowing her to pass with dignity and love. I would like to take this moment to thank everyone who reached out to me and offered their condolences in our family’s time of need. Love and light to you all.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — You may find that the more you try to push an issue, the more resistance you will face. Sit back and allow another to come to you with an issue of importance. By week’s end, the perfect opportunity will present itself to resolve this conflict or upsetting situation for them. Get out and about and catch up with friends and family. This will do you a world of good.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — You are finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel for a legal issue and financial gain now. There is no way this will be delayed any longer. Decide where your priorities are with your long-term financial elements and goals. You may need to take some time away from the home front to clear your head a bit. This will charge up your batteries, and you can start the new week with crystal clarity.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — You’re beginning to understand your loved one’s erratic behavior better now than in the recent past. Extra TLC is needed to help them through a difficult time. Perhaps a weekend away would do the trick, or a night out on the town. In either case, this will be recognized as a giant step forward with your romantic sector. Finances are on the upswing, and referrals for business are spreading like wildfire.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — A pleasant weekend with a loved one reveals some truths about a long-standing mystery. You no longer feel as though you are on the outside looking in. You have enough information to keep you going for quite some time. A positive turn of events is arriving. You can see that this was definitely worth the wait.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You’re relieved with some new activity that had been a worry to you in the recent past. Others are considering you for a job opportunity or an upgrade in your current status. You will find you have found your niche in life and that your dreams are coming to fruition. All of those efforts did have value after all.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — You’re seeing progress with your physical activity and your home environment. This is a time of celebration and determination. Expect the universe to support your dreams, goals and ambitions. Understand that the powers that be will not allow you to fail. You have support from above and below (the earth itself, and those who inhabit within it). A special spirit will be joining you shortly. You will learn a tremendous amount from this little being.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Back off and away from an agitated individual this week. You can’t help them until they are ready to help themselves. Once you see they are in a place to hear what you have to say, then calmly lay out the game plan. The weekend turns out to be a very productive time for family and friends.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — This weekend, you will have the hidden advantage when it comes to love and sexual activity. Your magnetic charm will soothe the savage beast. Once you’re able to see what’s really going on with a friend or family member, you will be in a better place to help them resolve a problem. Be kind, patient and helpful. This will be recognized by another as a job well done.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Take one step at a time, and try not to overwhelm yourself. If you need help, ask for it. Don’t expect others to be a mind-reader; clarify your thoughts and feelings. Finances are expected to come in a big way this month. You will be working overtime to keep up with your goals. If you have found yourself on your last nerve, reach out for professional help — there is no shame in that. You may need your energy aligned at this time.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — As things begin to simmer down in your home front, you are able to complete some mundane tasks that your time clock has not allowed you to finish earlier. That nagging sensation in the back of your mind over this has gotten on your last nerve. Now, your “to-do” list is back in a reasonable place of comfort for you. Take some time off midweek just to do a little shopping or possibly looking for some home improvement items. A bargain may be just around the corner.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Be conscious of the work you’re putting out this week, and pay close attention to what is “not” being said. Otherwise, another may feel as though you may be beginning to gang up on them. This is not what your heart intends to do, but it could appear this way to another. Try not to approve of inappropriate behavior. Call another on the carpet.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You’ve been a little confused with this hot-and-cold behavior from another, and you’re not sure exactly how to read this situation. Try not to take this personally. They are finding their way through a difficult spot, and they will have some resolution with this sensitive matter shortly. Midweek may be a good time to lie low. This will help you avoid conflict.
