The Archer: (Nov. 22 – Dec. 20)
The sun returns "home" to your sign this week. Now is the time to focus on new plans for this next year of your life. It is appropriate that your attention be directed toward yourself right now. But while you are doing this, be sensitive to the needs of those around you as well. You will be tempted to hold forth all weekend.
For All Signs: The prominent aspects over the holiday weekend are quiet and subdued. It appears everyone is ready for a rest. However, in the background, Venus, goddess of love, and Mars, the warrior, have been squared off for battle. Minor skirmishes may occur now, but most will keep irritable thoughts to themselves for the next three months. Generally, relationships are up for review and the basically firm ones will be tweaked and fine tuned. Those not worth the effort will probably be scuttled by the year end.
Aries: You may feel somewhat edgy and irritable this week. Parts of your mind are scattered in so many directions that it is hard to pull everything together. It might help you organize your thoughts if you diagram their connections. Another way of working with it is to write each on separate pieces of paper and then look at how they may fit into each other.
Taurus: A new friendship or romance that begins now may be really exciting. Unfortunately it is not likely to be stable or long-lasting. The relationship comes along to snap you out of a rut and open your eyes to new possibilities. You have favorable aspects concerning co-workers and job conditions.
Gemini: The full moon in your sign over the weekend suggests a full house for you! Aspects suggest a good time for the holiday. However, you will be prone to tell yourself what you want to think this week. Seek confirmation from others before you draw conclusions.
Cancer: Your physical cycle is in a dip. You need extra rest. The virus of a few weeks ago may be over, but your energy level is not quite recovered. You need more time to think about an issue concerning close friends or family. Your heart says one thing and your mind another. Table the conclusion for now.
Leo: Your attention is shifting into the areas of children, recreation, personal creativity and romance. You are ready for playtime and likely to be thinking about what fun activities you can generate for the holidays. You may be dealing with an issue concerning family-sharing this week.
Virgo: You may feel as though you came from another planet this week. Communications may be misunderstood, snarled or lost altogether. Compensate for this problem by concentrating on speaking the truth as you know it, and listening very carefully to what the other tells you. Then double-check.
Libra: You have a desire to break loose of routine now. You may be more forward and inventive than is your norm in personal relationships. Unusual twists may develop concerning artistic interests. For those who are single, a romantic fling is possible. Keep things light and playful.
Scorpio: Watch the temptation to draw judgmental conclusions about anyone at this time. It is possible the information is erroneous. Give special attention to keys and other small items, such as tickets. It will be easy to lose almost anything. Your tongue may be like a razor. Think before you speak, lest you regret it.
Capricorn: You have no new items to occupy your attention now, so you are left to deal with the usual routine. That is comforting for an earth sign. If you sense a huge change approaching in 2008-09, believe it! Capricorn does not change readily, but the one that comes will be a mountain mover.
Aquarius: Give wide berth to allergens this week, lest they overcome you. Favorable news comes your way from a distant person, the Internet or a romantic interest. Love and social life are generally enjoyable. You have positive aspects related to travel, legal or educational interests.
Pisces: In your shadow is the temptation to draw conclusions too quickly. This week you are especially susceptible. Be cautious about believing yourself unless you have confirmation from someone else. If you are open to the new and different, your love and social life is spicy this week.
