For All Signs: Mars, the red planet, was known in ancient times as the god of war. Within ourselves this planet represents our need for psychological and physical boundaries. We draw on our Mars energy when we feel angry and want to "protect" our territory. Sometimes this goes too far. We also access Mars energy for physically heavy work. This week there are multiple aspects involving Mars, so the adrenaline is immediately available and can be overwhelming. Use care when driving and using tools.
Aries: See the lead paragraph because Mars is your ruling planet. You are likely to be the leader of the pack throughout this week. Hopefully you have a task that is good for all involved and for those who are in need of your help. You hold the big picture in your heart and can convey it to everyone.
Taurus: Relationships take on an increased depth over the next few weeks. Even long-term partnerships will be sharing more intimately than usual about feelings. Positive influences and opportunities or gifts come your way. Money owed to you will be paid. Resources grow over the next month.
Gemini: For the next three weeks you will want to experiment with and try on multiple points of view. You probably will be taking polls among friends and associates. Make a special effort to keep up with keys, tickets, and other small items. You and partner may have a misunderstanding. Talk it through until you both feel clear.
Cancer: Watch your diet this week. You may overdo on some food or drink that could cause you to feel off in the belly. You have favorable aspects concerning romance, social and family life with husband and children. The arts and all things of beauty are of a special pleasure to you now.
Leo: Before the holiday you may feel completely burned out. By the end of a week your energy will return. You will take on a project that involves learning something new that brings you power. You will find a way to protect yourself from disillusionment.
Virgo: Here we are at Thanksgiving, just as your planetary ruler moves into the sector involving home, hearth and family. It looks as though you are the designated hostess, although given your nature, this may happen every year at this time. This year it may feel like herding cats as people shift gears and change plans.
Libra: Your ruling planet is Venus, goddess of love and the arts. "She" draws your attention to parties in neighboring areas and with those of your usual environment. Those with siblings may enjoy improved relationship through this period. You'll be inclined to add luxury items to your vehicle, or maybe even purchase a new one.
Scorpio: You are pressured by circumstances to find a new means to take care of yourself. Therefore now is the time in which you must pull together all your internal resources to find solutions. You have far more than you believe buried in your tote sack of talents and gifts to offer.
Sagittarius: Mercury travels rapidly through your sign between November 27 and December 16. During this period there likely will be greater emphasis on communications, errands, and other short distance travels. Your mind will be quick and your attitude persuasive. This heralds a time of leadership for you and may represent a time of celebration.
Capricorn: You have a challenging aspect that requires that you to work really hard to hold onto your personal power in the face of circumstances that are not at all conducive to your use of it. Even if you feel really alone in the world there are helpers in the background who are there for support. Will power is your ally.
Aquarius: There are fears lurking in the back of your mind that may cause you to feel discouraged and prone to quit. Make an effort to shine a bright light upon them. Are they real or imagined? Is there any way to bring them out of the darkness so you can engage them directly?
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.
