YOUR ZODIAC SIGN
ARIES (MARCH 21 TO APRIL 20) Your ruler, Mars, is in Aquarius, making you feel independent. On November 16 Mars moves into Pisces and you are likely to have an abrupt change of mind. A person from the past suddenly comes back into your life, making you very happy.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 TO MAY 20) The planet Uranus brings many surprises as it retrogrades out of Taurus back into Aries. This brings past situations back into focus. Venus, your ruler, goes direct on November 16, promising invitations and gifts that are just what you’ve been wanting. Enjoy the holidays!
GEMINI (MAY 21 TO JUNE 20) Mercury, your ruler, is in Sagittarius for most of November and December, a favorable indication for happy times. The first two weeks of December, however, can be hectic, so try to get things done ahead of schedule. You are apt to have good, new ideas and meet new people who have a lasting effect on you. Good dates for you are December 7 and 13.
CANCER (JUNE 21 TO JULY 22) Special people will be giving you good news or gifts that you have been hoping for on November 16 and 25. December 7 and 13 are both good days to meet up with friends and family for a happy holiday feast. You love Christmas and will have a great time. Scorpios, Pisces and other Cancers all make great friends.
LEO (JULY 23 TO AUGUST 22) Be sure to plan lots of jolly good dates with the people you love best. You are often the life of the party and expected to make everyone happy. Since Christmas is one of your favorite times of the year, get your shopping done early and plan some holiday fun.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23 TO SEPTEMBER 22) Mercury, your ruler, goes retrograde on November 17, so it’s wise for you to plan your holidays and do all your Christmas shopping before that date. On December 7 when Mercury goes direct everything should suddenly be the way you want it to be. Happy holidays.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 TO OCTOBER 22) With your ruler, Venus, in your sign through November, you may be getting most of your Christmas presents early. November 16 is a special day when you may want to let everyone know what you want. The auspicious planet Jupiter will be giving you Librans whatever you want for Christmas. Celebrate!
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 TO NOVEMBER 22) Things are changing for you Scorpios. Look for new people and new interests in the coming months to bring excitement into your life. Learning something new that intrigues you is always a good idea. Pisces can bring romance into your life.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21) Jupiter, your ruler, the planet of good luck and cheer, enters your sign on November 8 and stays there all year. That is a wonderful gift for the holidays. It brings the best of everything and makes your wishes come true. It’s known as the expansive planet, so do try not to gain weight.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 19) Saturn is in your sign and is good for you. Make the most of it. It’s especially a career-building planet and will help you if you choose to do something serious, especially like starting a business. It’s a time to work hard on things that matter. Other Capricorns, Virgos and Taurans help you.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 TO FEBRUARY 18) You Aquarians are apt to have a very good holiday season. You have the ability to concentrate, so make sure to do that when you’re learning something new. You are unpredictable to others and sometimes yourself. Look around for new things to learn and do. Others look to you for ideas and direction.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 TO MARCH 20) You are more settled down than those around you. Pisces are often psychic and have faith in what will happen. This can make you difficult to understand. On November 25 your ruler, Neptune, goes direct, solving puzzles, clarifying misunderstandings and clearing away confusion.
