Stargazing with Elizabeth Joyce
Mercury retrogrades September 17 through October 9. The November 11th new moon in Scorpio brings a cosmic coincidence in that the new moon occurs on Veteran’s Day and is ruled by Mars, the planet of war. Every new moon represents new beginnings, but this one is synonymous with crisis and transformation, which will take on a more serious tone than usual. Be brave and courageous, and use this energy to overcome boundaries and open new doors. The November 25th full moon in Gemini ushers in Thanksgiving Day. The next two weeks are the best time to wind up projects, decrease clutter and reduce whatever has gone flabby. The December 11th new moon in Sagittarius brings the time of the month to begin anew. It’s holiday time but remember that too much of a good thing may bring some problems. If you’re having fun, be sure not to overspend or go so far out of bounds that you cannot find the way back. The December 27th full moon in Cancer brings a Christmas super moon, with a gentle, magical glow. Also, Uranus in Aries wakes up from a five-month sleep. This shift means an increase in sudden or unexpected changes that will affect us all on a personal level. These changes could come from science/technology, which Uranus rules.
ARIES (MARCH 21 TO APRIL 20)
November asks you to broaden your horizons and open your mind. Whatever you choose—education, travel or new experiences—you’ll enjoy every minute of it. Also, it’s time to have a chat with someone who isn’t pulling his or her weight financially. You may need to deal with taxes or inheritance. December brings another trip, perhaps of long distance. Your passion is kindled, and you may ignite an old flame. Whatever evolves, you should enjoy a warm and loving holiday season.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 TO MAY 20)
Lots of new acquaintances and talking more than usual is November’s gift, Taurus. As the holiday season opens you can expect some delightfully interesting company to keep your mind, and perhaps your body, occupied. You’re ready to make some creative financial changes at month’s end. The holidays will make this a particularly wonderful time for you, Taurus. Love gives you the inspiration you need to make some major changes. Pass out lots of hugs and be sure to linger under the mistletoe. ’Tis the season!
GEMINI (MAY 21 TO JUNE 20)
The full moon in your sign teams up with Mars to see to it that you bring a relationship issue to an end. If you need to, have a heart-to-heart talk, then put it all behind you. If you’re thinking about making an investment, now is a great time to do so. Just don’t risk what you don’t have. December brings you every reason on earth to indulge in holiday gatherings and lighthearted social events. Enjoy yourself but don’t go overboard with rich foods and heady drinks. Stop worrying about money and enjoy your good feelings.
CANCER (JUNE 21 TO JULY 22)
There’s a lot of pillow talk as you enter November, and this feels delicious. The good news is that your sweetie whispers sweet nothings in you ear as well. Also, you will be able to iron out all those money problems with a family member whom you will find extremely cooperative. You may not see it coming in December, but a bonus, promotion or pay raise is on its way to you. Talk over any holiday disputes with your partner. You may have to hold your ground and stick to your guns, though. The moon is full and in your sign on Christmas Eve. Check your temper and smile.
LEO (JULY 23 TO AUGUST 22)
You’re a happy camper over the Thanksgiving holiday, Leo. Spend whatever free time you have with those who love recreation as much as you do. Time to discuss matters and make nice with family members. They will offer you the same courtesy. Just be sure to get your share of hugs and laughter. As December opens you may need someone unbiased to sort out right from wrong on the home front. You may be dealing with someone who is a bit tough on you. That person’s own problems are clouding the picture, but it all works out. Allow yourself to be spoiled at holiday time. You deserve it.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23 TO SEPTEMBER 22)
Your career has been right on track lately, Virgo, and now it’s time for some
financial rewards. You may become embroiled in a dispute. Although clearing the air is positive, don’t allow yourself to explode. Stay in control. You may feel pulled in two directions over the Thanksgiving holiday; however, you are pretty good at multitasking. December brings in extra funds for you. You may plan to remodel the house right after the holiday season.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 TO OCTOBER 22)
In November you have a way of making others feel special, Libra. You won’t be lonely this month as your already strong magnetism gets turned up a notch or two. You’ll have several offers to attend the Thanksgiving feast with others. Choose carefully and, above all, don’t just settle. December brings a bit of jealousy from your lover or partner. When it comes to shopping, don’t get crazy to “prove” your love. You may need a friend, or need to be a friend. Whatever transpires, enjoy the holidays.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 TO NOVEMBER 22)
You feely chatty and are able to let go of whatever you’ve been keeping inside, Scorpio. Is it love? You could feel pretty sure around the Thanksgiving weekend. Others come to you for love advice, and you offer them positive solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems. December brings warmth in all of your relationships, especially family and friends. It’s going to be a great holiday. Enjoy it—and be sure to pass those feelings around.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21)
As November opens, a long-term project you’ve put your mind and heart into comes to an end. What a feeling of accomplishment! It will be time to celebrate, and since no one has seen much of you, you’re the star of the show. Joining the Thanksgiving holiday fun will be passionate and lovely. December energies see to it that you are feeling warm and wonderful over the holiday season. Hugs, laughter and lots of sentimental stories abound. On New Year’s Eve you’re ready to come out and play, big time.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 19)
You find yourself at the helm at work, as the rules of the game change. Time to follow some protocol. Someone you’ve recently thought of as a higher-up may suddenly appeal to you for reasons other than just his or her business skills. Over the Thanksgiving weekend you find the need to be blunt and honest, no matter what surfaces. December brings someone you may be seeing a bit casually closer into the family circle. This will be especially easy and can’t help but go well. Hugs, gifts and longlost loved ones are everywhere. Enjoy!
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 TO FEBRUARY 18)
Any issues you’ve had with your kids or sweetheart can be put to rest in
November, Aquarius, with very little effort on your part. This has been a long time coming. A serious talk ensues midmonth, more than likely about finances. Be sure you’re totally honest and speak your peace. Don’t allow anything to stop you. December brings many, many holiday invitations and not enough time. A lucky break comes mid-month, as well as a financial reward. Next year brings education, travel and boldly going where you’d never thought you’d go.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 TO MARCH 20)
November brings a social schedule that will pick up some speed. Sleep may be hard to come by. Prepare yourself for some drama in your close, personal relationships. Just be sure this is enthusiasm, not anger. If you have a chance to start a new business, you should think seriously about it. There may be some administrative snags, but they’ll work out. Thanksgiving brings you a schedule change, but people will understand. December brings a possible job change, but you’re after something that will really fulfill you. The holiday season looks very positive. Gather the whole gang around the fire and enjoy the warmth and sharing. Talk about a merry old time!
