November 20 – 26, 2013
For All Signs: Mercury, ancient messenger god, is unusually busy throughout this week. This suggests that most of us will be preoccupied with communication of one form or another. There may be many phone calls, messages, letters, quick conversations, rapid decisions, and/or papers to write. The period is favorable for probing into causes and finding the bottom line to any matter. Beware of the tendency to jump to conclusions or act before all the facts are clear. Remind yourself of how the old "gossip" game is played and don't take what you hear seriously unless it is verified.
Aries: There are circumstances over which you have no control related to the resources of other people, investments, inheritance issues, or concerns about those who are very ill. One or more of these issues may be distracting. Therefore your reflexes are not at their best right now. Use caution with tools, machinery, and driving.
Taurus: Your mood is positive but also business-like this week. You want to get things accomplished, particularly if you have a need to study or write something. Involvements with the Internet may prove worthwhile, so research whatever is needed. You may be mixing business and pleasure in a pleasant combination.
Gemini: This is a good time to get down to some serious organizing. You know what is in disarray, whether it is closets, files, drawers, or the basement. Now is the time to do it. Putting things in order is a good way to create order in our minds. It will help you recover from the recent Mercury retrograde.
Cancer: Early in the week your mood is steady and life flows pretty much in accordance with your plans and wishes. As the week moves toward the end you begin to anticipate something that you know will be fun and entertaining. This may include your children or a creative arts event.
Leo: You may be surprised to discover something about yourself or your money/debts that you have been avoiding. We are all in denial sometimes. Don’t waste time on a guilt trip. Now that you know, it is time to face the facts and collect the threads of a solution. This is not a good time to have a sexual encounter with someone unknown to you.
Virgo: There is quite a lot of activity in the area that includes siblings, roommates, car repair, and transportation challenges. A few other features include communications of all types, languages, teaching and/or learning. Everything seems like a priority. Take your time, breathe deeply, and trust that things will work out in their time.
Libra: This is a good time to consider your financial picture. Your mind is steady and less inclined to denial than it sometimes is. What factors do you really need to spend money on? What items are “wants” or those things that could be dispensed with until you feel more stable on the money front?
Scorpio: Circumstances in your life may be topsy-turvy right now. Perhaps you are moving or changing jobs. Maybe you are moving a roommate in or out of your home. Everything will require two or three tries before it is accomplished. Take a deep breath, calm yourself, and know the fray will soon be over.
Sagittarius: The sun returns "home" to your sign this week. You likely will find it to be energizing. Now is the time to focus on new plans for this next year of your life. Take a fresh look at where you want to direct your energy. Use this month to let go of old issues and take a deep breath of healing energy.
Capricorn: You are probably dealing with a fair amount of responsibility now. Even so, things flow smoothly and you are at relative peace with your world. This week is a good one for organizing a community group to accomplish some mutual goal. If you are not doing this, you are probably active in something akin to it.
Aquarius: Those of you who are happy in your careers have been given increased responsibility this fall. These days the money doesn’t always follow such increases. However, if you do the best job you can, it will follow in a year or so. If you are unemployed, now is the time to use your energy to create something brand new.
Pisces: Developments in your career or life direction may cause you to feel ineffective this week. Don’t allow this one experience to alter your sense of self-identity. You are an intuitive person who can almost always assist others to feel better. But you cannot accomplish this goal if the Other does not want to feel better.
