Weekly Horoscopes


 

NOVEMBER 26 – DECEMBER 2

 

Aries

Move over Eve and Severine; there’s a new Bond Girl in town. Mercury powers forward in Scorpio this Tuesday, effectively ending a three-week retrograde (backwards) phase, and restoring your charm to maximum potency. Sex appeal? You’ve got it in spades, so don’t underestimate your powers of attraction. This could be a five-star week for your love life, with a mind-body-soul connection in the offing. A relationship that cooled during the retrograde could heat up again, making you want to lock out the world beyond just the two of you. But you’ve also got bigger fish to fry than making your suitors fall to their knees or practicing positions from the Kama Sutra in lieu of attending that end-of-quarter planning meeting. Since November 6, retrograde Mercury has brought a skyfall of drama into your world. From dealing with jealous friends to alternatively fending off and trying to figure out mischievous exes, to sorting out sticky contract negotiations, you’re bound up in miles of red tape. Freeing yourself will be a delicate matter and one that requires a good deal of your attention this week. Take back your power, Aries, and get your hands on the wheel. If that means adopting some of Mercury in Scorpio’s “all or nothing” attitude, so be it. This is not a matter that will allow for fifty, or even five shades of grey. Some figures from your past simply don’t belong in your future, and you must extricate yourself from these entanglements…particularly if they keep you up at night in fits of insecurity and anxiety about the future. Your sanity is worth more than wondering and waiting for that someday, maybe moment when everything will be blissful. Buh-bye. As you don your 007 chapeau, you’ll have an easy time drawing secrets out of people, finally cracking the case on a mysterious or troubled situation. People have been less than forthcoming with the information these past few weeks, but now you’ll charm them into giving up the goods. Here’s hoping that what you discover is simply amazing (and it could be!) rather than agonizing. No matter the case, do what’s in your power to put all the in-fighting and spy games to rest. (But do keep the Bond Girl catsuit for sexy time, if you wish.) Then, you can get on to the business of making deals and finalizing those power mergers in the name of progress. Make sure that you’re sure about anyone you ink a deal with now. These contracts will practically be signed in blood. Are you ready to be “extended family” with these peeps? If not, you’d best be bolting in a different direction, Ram. If so, well, say hello to the proverbial Mob Wives. Thursday brings a moment of truth to yet another friendship or dynamic duo situation. On that day, a lunar eclipse in Gemini reveals hidden information in bold 72-point type that you simply can’t ignore. Is this two-person venture one that you want to continue developing? Can you truly count this person as a real friend and ally? You’ll have major clarity once this eclipse passes on Thursday, so don’t ignore your insights. On the plus side, this eclipse could portend a major milestone moment for you and your partner-in-crime. Pull in for a shining finish, tag-team style, or make your casual alliance something truly official. If you’re a writer or media maker, this eclipse could get your work in prestigious hands. Got something to market? You’ll light up the Twitterverse, making a huge splash with just a little 140-character effort and a few well-timed Instagram shots. Aries entrepreneurs might send out a Groupon or special offer to customers. Just get ready for a tidal wave of response: this eclipse could bring hidden fans out of the woodwork.

 

Aquarius

With Public Enemy’s 1989 anthem “Fight The Power,” ringing in your ears, you’re verging on becoming a card-carrying rebel these days, Aquarius. Since November 14, retrograde Mercury has been slicing through your tenth house of authority figures making anyone from teachers to bosses to the cop on the corner seem like the force that’s been holding you down. Fact or fiction? You could hardly tell. The truth is, Mercury’s backward spin has left you feeling a bit out of touch with your own power. As such, you may have mistaken people’s confident swagger for egomaniacal domination, seething at the perceived injustices you’ve witnessed. Breathe, renegade, breathe. On Tuesday, Mercury bolts forward once again, getting you back in touch with your own power and authority. Suddenly, that “complete jerk who is holding me back from my dreams” becomes “just my boyfriend” once again. Here’s hoping you didn’t burn too many bridges, especially with the men in your life, who may have gotten the brunt of your Mercury-driven frustration. This week, set about the task of repairing these relationships, even if that requires a little begging for forgiveness here and there. Thanksgiving was last week, but the attitude of gratitude remains ultimate way to bring back the love. What have you overlooked or failed to appreciate about the people you’ve pegged as your nemeses? Look for the light, not the shadows this week, Aquarius, for the sake of your own inner peace. Not that you have to put your revolutionary nature to bed completely. Just put it in its proper place. You’ve seen situations that are in need of an epic transformation. Could you change the system from within, so to speak, rather than rallying to tear it down? Your cooperative, collaborative spirit returns, illuminating ahead-of-the-curve solutions for bringing people together. Your own career may ascend swiftly this week, putting you in the position of the boss. My how different it feels when the tables are turned and YOU have to be in charge. Being on the other side of the coin will definitely give you empathy for the people you railed against. But you also get to lead YOUR way, which is definitely out-of-the-box. Grab the wheel and steer, O’ Captain. On Thurdsay, another spike in your popularity comes, courtesy of the lunar (full moon) eclipse in Gemini and your starpowered fifth house. The spotlight that’s been searching for you since the corresponding solar (new moon) eclipse this past May 20 could hone in. Are you ready for your close-up, Aquarius? There will be plenty more eyes on you than you’re used to, but don’t worry: you’ll perform like a pro. This eclipse could throw your hidden talents into sharp relief, surprising even you. Who knew you had a knack for THAT? A situation that requires you to improvise could usher forth one of your slumbering skills, so don’t overthink it—just act. Romantic developments also fall under the spell of this eclipse. A flirty attraction that’s been building since May could explode in a hot-and-heavy makeout sesh; or, if you’ve been putting love on the back burner, you could be pushed out of hiding and into the unexpected arms of love. Eclipses have been known to speed up results, and with the fifth house ruling fertility, many Aquarians may become preggers this week or give birth to a creative venture that rocks the world.

Cancer

Wardrobe! Styling! Put in a call to the glam squad this week, Cancer. On Tuesday, messenger Mercury wakes up from a three-week retrograde through your house of style, romance, and creativity. If your self-expression has waned since early November, fear not. Fading in with the wallpaper is not your fate; in fact, you’re due to make a brilliant emergence again this week. Ta-da! Mercury’s direct turn calls for theatrical flourishes: big hair, bouncy waves, paillettes, the just-right shade of red lipstick, statement-sized accessories. So what if you feel a little bit like Celine Dion Live In Vegas? Being a showstopper is what Mercury is calling for, and besides, with your measured approach, you’ll be more LA chic than over-the-top. There’s something to be said for the elementary notion of “when you look good, you feel good.” Pampering yourself wakes up the slumbering goddess, and think about it: which of these she-deities isn’t pictured draped in accessories? Awaken your divinity by adorning yourself this week…in a style that suits you, of course. It’s like letting the world see your insides turned out—a beautiful sight to behold. Romantically, the past couple weeks have been, er, interesting. Retrograde Mercury may have lured a wayward ex or two out of the woodwork, sending you spiraling back into that old, familiar abyss. Or, you were pumped up with hope, believing that perhaps s/he really DID overcome that flaw you found so fatal last time around. Well, Cancer, the jury is still out. You’ll have to wait until the smoke clears in the coming week to label this relationship as “born again” or “bad romance.” Coupled Cancers may have descended into drama during the retrograde, bickering, sulking, and sniping over god-only-knows-what. Retract your pincers and call a truce. You’ll have to make some concessions in the name of love—not too many—but a few. But really, isn’t having someone around to keep you warm at night worth the compromise? We think so, Crab, so don’t take your sweetie’s gifts for granted. On Thursday, a lunar eclipse in Gemini rockets through your twelfth house of closure, completions, and help from above. A guardian angel type could enter your world; or a mentor who you met near the corresponding solar eclipse on May 20, 2012 could emerge as a powerful figure in this week’s events, ushering in an incredible opportunity for you, or taking you under his/her wing. Got any addictive habits to break? For Cancers, emotional eating and tippin’ back the moonshine can be the big ones. These lures could be exacerbated during the eclipse, so keep your supportive sponsor-types on speed dial when the urges get strong. It’s possible that you’ll be celebrating a six-month anniversary, free from the toxins you’ve sworn off, as the May 20 eclipse may have prompted a healthy change. If you’ve made notable progress, be careful not to slip. “It’s only just this once” are famous last words for many. Steel your resolve, Cancer, and avoid the first proverbial sip from that chalice of temptation. Eclipses are known for speeding up events, so you may be waving buh-bye to a situation that you knew you’d be letting go of soon. Farewells are rarely fond for your sentimental sign, but when you’ve gotta go, you’ve gotta go. Don’t cling, even if this expedited eclipse energy pushes you out of the nest before you’re sure you can fly. Even if you hit the ground, you’ll do so running. Out with the old, in with the new!

 

Capricorn

There is strength in numbers once again, as communicator Mercury effectively ends a three-week retrograde this Tuesday. It hasn’t been all roses on Team Capricorn, especially since November 14, when retrograde Mercury slid back into Scorpio and your house of collaborative efforts. You’ve likely weathered some infighting since then, or maybe witnessed a perfectly cohesive unit of peeps start to unravel at the seams. Before you dismantle the group of bail for greener pastures, take the reins on peacemaking efforts. You might call a summit (with clear ground rules, like one person holds the talking stick at a time and no personal jabs allowed) giving everyone a chance to air feelings and chime in about solutions. All is not lost here, Cap, and there’s a good chance you’ll all be back in sync like a finely tuned machine before the week is through. That said, Mercury’s direct turn signals the need to recruit some fresh blood. Holiday parties will double as networking events for the next couple weeks, so keep the little black dress at the front of your closet. Go easy on the brandied eggnog and socialize with the added purpose of scouting out prospective collaborators. With Mercury powering forward, a stalled online venture could take flight again. If you have a website, blog post, or other techie project that’s ready to share with the world, it’s safe to hit the launch button after Tuesday. Still in the development process? Do a little crowdsourcing and let the general public (or at least your Twitter followers) give you their candid feedback by sharing a link or tossing out an idea for critique. You’re strong enough to take whatever comes back at you. Even if the reviews aren’t all glowing, consider this a golden opportunity to sharpen your angle and perfect your next pitch. Plus, you’ve probably just saved yourself a pile of money with this “focus group.” On Thursday, tape this note to your forehead: the only thing constant is change. Your carefully crafted Capricorn routines could get a mighty shakeup by the lunar (full moon) eclipse in Gemini. You may be forced to think on your feet, scrambling for a solution for a situation you thought you had locked down. As irritating as this process may be, it’s an incredible opportunity for you to mine the reserves of your own slumbering creativity. What you dream up in the last minute will be pure genius. Have faith in your ability to improvise! If you’ve been slacking on self-care, this eclipse could bring a wakeup call, and even a bout of unexpected anxiety. Man cannot subsist on espresso alone. Overindulging in coffee or sugary foods could leave you shaken or skittish under this lunar spell. You may realize that you’ve pushed yourself past your natural limits with work and other commitments. Scale back and simplify, STAT! The two weeks following the eclipse would best be used for streamlining your schedule, restocking your fridge with healthy, warm food ingredients (think stews and soups), and getting back into a regular groove with your fitness routine. On the flip side, this eclipse could also herald a “best shape of my life” moment for some Caps, especially those of you who have been working hard in the gym or yoga studio since the corresponding solar (new moon) eclipse in Gemini this past May 20. The same holds true for work: if you’ve been busting ass to prove your mettle since May, stellar results may come, courtesy of the eclipse. Hello, holiday bonus, promotion, or offer of a dream job!

 

Gemini

You can resume your regularly scheduled programming this week, Gemini (insert audible sigh of relief). On Tuesday, your celestial ruler Mercury wakes up from a three-week retrograde and plows forward in Scorpio and your sixth house of healthy habits and daily routines. Your best attempts at living a scheduled, disciplined life were foiled by Mercury’s backward spin. As teetotaling pledges gave way to irresistible temptations, you might be feeling a little helpless in the face of the holiday season lures. Wipe away the fruitcake crumbs and lock your credit cards in the safe. Life returns to a manageable groove again this week, making you more in the mood for Pilates than pink champagne. As the week bodes on, you’ll be kicking ass and taking names. Coworkers who suspected you were slipping will have another thing coming. You may have to burn some midnight oil in the name of bringing back the wow factor Geminis are known for. Coasting is not your energetic sign’s M.O., so step up your game and remind your team that you’re still in it to win it. If you’re feeling on-the-job ennui, take it upon yourself to devise a challenging project. No, you might not be rewarded with immediate pay or praise but there’s no greater hell for a Gemini than watching the second hand of the clock tick by at an agonizingly. Slow. Pace. Your added efforts will not go unnoticed, so consider this work a deposit in the professional reputation bank account. Are your systems up to snuff? Efficiency is the buzzword in Geminiland this week, and after Tuesday, Mercury green-lights the purchase of gadgets that can help speed up your processes. (Cool-kid factor notwithstanding, don’t you need that iPad Mini for making presentations and reading notes during your commute? Totally justified, Gemini!) When it comes to your health, adhere to the “no means no” principle again. Admit it, you can be a bit of a pusher, nudging friends to indulge in an entire bottle instead of just a glass or insisting on the shared dessert when everyone is beyond the point of stuffed. What comes around goes around and now you’ll have to face down the peer pressure of overindulging when you know that a second margarita will disrupt your sleep and make your morning presentation feel like a zombiewalk. Be a bit more rigid with yourself this week, thinking of it as a bit of a detox. You’ll get your treats again soon, but they’ve become a bit too “main course” for you. Schedule doctor appointments and get a second opinion on any diagnoses that didn’t jive with you while Mercury was retrograde from November 6-26. A holistic remedy might be the solution, or one that combines Eastern and Western medicine modalities. The other epic news of the week centers around Thursday. On that day, a beaming lunar (full moon) eclipse in Gemini brings your talents straight into the spotlight. Flip your date book to May 20, 2012: this eclipse is the harvest of seeds planted under the spell of a corresponding solar eclipse in Gemini on that day. You’ve definitely reached a milestone moment of sorts. Now the question is: should you stay or should you go? If there’s more to discover and explore in the opportunity, don’t let your fidgety wanderlust take you off course! Instead, use the next two weeks to build yourself up even higher. This is a potent window for personal progress. You’ll have to work independently (or as a strong and authoritative leader) for the most part. Don’t stress: you have all the muscle you need to pull this off, Gemini. In all areas of life, this is a day to shine, revealing hidden parts of your personality to the world, just as the eclipse will illuminate the shadow of the Earth on the moon. Is there a pressing personal matter that you’d prefer people NOT discover on their own? Like a good publicist, take matters into your own hands. Don’t wait for this information to be revealed. Break the story yourself, spinning it with your own clever twist and ensuring that people get the version that YOU want them to hear.

 

Leo

With Mercury retrograde in your domestic sector, last week’s Thanksgiving celebrations may have left you more grated on than grateful, but there’s no need to excise yourself from the family tree. This Tuesday, the communication planet resumes forward motion, bringing back the love between you and your inner circle. Maybe it was just one close friend or relative who got under your skin—those competitive comments aimed at your clothing choices, the underhanded digs at your lovingly prepared tableside toast. This week you can finally rise above her Mean Girl schtick; last week, not so much. Instead of fueling the fire, step back and cool down. This drama really IS beneath you, Leo. The best way to fight this battle is to step out of the petty ring. Don’t forget that actions speak louder than words. By refusing to be thrown off course by someone’s provocations, you gain the upper hand and win respect. Quiet strength is what you’re aiming for here, so instead of being the Venus Flytrap, try on the Steel Magnolia role. As Mercury barrels forward, turn your attention towards a new flock of amigas. The affable vibes you’ve been feeling with a new crew could be the foundation for a beautiful friendship or three. Take it upon yourself to organize a get together: brunch, a movie, a spa day. You may soon become a permanent fixture in a new tight knit crew. Is it time to rally on a home décor or repair mission? With Mercury direct, you’ll have your wits about you when it comes to pulling paint colors and selecting the perfect swan neck faucet to replace the leaky one in your kitchen. Some Leos may even be spurred to flip through the real estate listings and relocate to a more suitable space in the days ahead. There’s no need to put up with a crappy roommate or shabby rental anymore, Leo. Break that lease and learn from your mistakes. You’ll choose more wisely the next time. A team effort hits a high note this Thursday, when a lunar (full moon) eclipse in Gemini lights up your eleventh house of groups and collaborations. This eclipse is the culmination of six months of hard work that began with the corresponding solar (new moon) eclipse in Gemini on May 20. If you’ve been wondering who among your crew had your back, you’ll know for sure this week. And what about your own loyalties to the team? Eclipses reveal shadows and you might get a glimpse into your own hidden desires. Maybe you’re ready to hand in your badge and join forces with people of a different ilk. Don’t force yourself to stay with a group out of misplaced loyalty. Of course, the complete opposite could be true. You may find a stellar way to combine forces and grow even stronger with your posse. Pool your resources. There’s more than enough to go around if you all share what you have. This eclipse is the perfect date to hit the “Launch!” button on a web-based venture or at least put up a splash page to announce your presence on the virtual map. The two weeks following this eclipse could bring an influx of brilliant ideas for how to make money on the web. An e-commerce or network marketing site, even a blog have the potential to become serious revenue generators for you. If you’re inspired to learn a new software program or digital skill, let this eclipse prompt you to enroll in a training course so you can boost your earning power, 21st Century style.

 

Libra

Money talks, Libra, and with Mercury ending a complicated three-week retrograde this Tuesday, you’re due for some straight-shooting discussions about the almighty dollar. Is there a sticky situation that needs sorting out, someone you owe a bundle of cash—or vice versa? No more sweeping these matters under the rug or hoping they’ll magically amend themselves. With Mercury pushing forward in direct motion after Tuesday, handle these matters with a “just the facts ma’am” M.O. Maybe that means working out a payment plan or clearly delineating which member of the household covers the electric bill and who’s handling cable. Put it in writing and have all parties sign off on the terms. Verbal agreements are not binding—not the way you need them to be. Direct Mercury could herald progress in the job search/client wooing departments. If a promising work opportunity stalled at the gates for the past few weeks, expect a turnaround. Reach out midweek: a successful follow-up call could finally get things off the ground. Overall, you’ll have an easier time expressing yourself after Tuesday. Free your throat chakra by singing, chanting, or cheering at the top of your lungs during a Thursday Night Football game (potentially a great way for single Libras to snag a date this week, in fact). Touchdowns aren’t just happening in the NFL this Thursday though. On that very day, a lunar (full moon) eclipse in Gemini bursts wide in your ninth house of travel, higher education, entrepreneurial ventures, and yes, sports. This lunar eclipse is the culmination of a corresponding solar (new moon) eclipse in Gemini that happened last May 20, so check back to see what seeds you planted then. A long distance relationship—for romance or finance—could be a sealed deal, one that might just prompt you to hit the “Buy Now” button on a Priceline deal or prepare Chateau Libra for the arrival of a very special guest. Libra business owners could reach a milestone moment. You may be invited to teach or speak to an audience about what you know. If there’s a seminar you’ve been eyeing that will take your skills from good to great, enroll this week! As quickly as the world is evolving, you’ve gotta stay on your stilettos if you want to keep up. Athletic Libras might be swept off for a ski lodge weekend or confirm for that south-of-the-border surf camp excursion during your holiday break late December. Your sporty spice returns with a vengeance, so warm your blood for the winter with a new form of physical activity. Eclipses reveal shadows and can sometimes ink out one opportunity, forcing us to look in a new direction. Don’t panic if the door seems to close temporarily with regards to someone living far away or an aspect of your entrepreneurial dreams. Instead, search around for a suitable substitute. Your Plan B could wind up being far superior to your Plan A…even if Plan A comes back around a couple weeks from now.

 

Pisces

Open mouth, insert Manolo? Your truth has packed some bite these past few weeks, thanks to the sting of communication planet Mercury in retrograde (reverse motion). What was intended as well-meaning advice may have cut someone to the quick, your keen observations didn’t quite bring the round of “ahhs” you anticipated. You thought you were giving a compliment, but you wound up striking a nerve. And now, you and your so-called BFF are barely speaking. What the…? Here’s some news you’ll be happy to hear. On Tuesday, Mercury effectively ends its retrograde, powering forward in direct motion once again. So maybe Thanksgiving toasts got bungled or Mercury threw your GPS off so much that you arrived to dinner as people were polishing off the last slice of pumpkin pie. The rest of the holiday season will be night-and-day different (phew!) and you’ll slowly iron out the creases in your most precious unions once again. Think of these blowups as important learning experiences. Your caring can cross the line sometimes, especially when you get more invested in people’s lives than they do. And from now on, it’s probably best to wait until people ASK for your advice before you proffer it. Everyone will be much freer and happier with these boundaries in place—especially you! As Mercury takes flight once again, you’re in the clear to book an exquisite holiday getaway for yourself without regret. Join friends at their ski house or head to the tropics to regale your inner mermaid, in true Pisces style. A cross-cultural connection could heat up undeniably between now and December 10; so too can a long-distance relationship. Who knows, Pisces? You may be entertaining a visitor from abroad this Christmas, or sipping cheer on another continent. An entrepreneurial venture could hit its stride, just in time for holiday shopping season. Do you have the perfect stocking stuffer to market…one that will simultaneously stock your bank account? Get the word out, STAT, as this forward-moving wave of Mercury energy could bring a flurry of customers to your online shopping cart. On Thursday, a lunar (full moon) eclipse in Gemini and your fourth house of home could bring developments to Chateau Pisces. Eclipses are harbingers of change and by the weekend, things might look quite different under your roof. You may finally get going on that renovation project (yes, it’s okay to paint your office ballet slipper pink) or put that errant roommate’s belongings on the curb (buh-bye, rent-shirking succubus!). If a relocation has been in the works—especially since the corresponding solar (new moon) eclipse in Gemini this past May 20—this eclipse could shove you out of the nest and on to greener pastures. Even if you don’t literally pack up shop this week, plans could get underway for a future move, one that brings the promise of a much happier lifestyle. A family member or close female friend may suddenly need an assist. Jump in for the save, Pisces, as you’re the one who can make things right. Besides, this person has been there for you through thick and thin and you don’t want to bail on the payback moment. Financial security is another big theme of this eclipse. If you’ve been living beyond your means, you could get a bit of a wakeup call. Let this be your motivation to scale back and simplify. But beyond tightening your belt, how about some creative financing? Put on your brainstorming cap, as some out-of-the-box solutions for earning more cash or wooing a new type of client could arise. This may even translate into a home-based business, or one that allows you to provide a product or service to your circle of friends and family.

 

Sagittarius

“To err is human, to forgive, divine,” wrote 18th century poet, Alexander Pope. Three hundred years later, this kernel of eternal wisdom seems pointed right in your direction. This Tuesday, communication planet Mercury ends a rigorous three-week retrograde. You’ve been misheard, misinterpreted and misunderstood more than Miley Cyrus (a Sag) since November 6, particularly since Mercury first sliced its way through Sagittarius, then, back into Scorpio on the 14th. On more than one occasion, you’ve been tempted to go on a mad de-friending spree; but, wait before you deactivate your Facebook account or tell your sister to lose your number. With Mercury’s direct turn, the healing vibes drift down and blanket your inner circle, helping you see the messages in the madness. No, maybe you weren’t able to hug it out over Thanksgiving. But as this week bodes on, you’ll sign a few peace treaties and realize that holding onto anger and resentment is only burning YOU up inside. Recanting the same tale of the friend who did you wrong will taste like bitter acid on your tongue this week. Icing out a frienemy makes your own shoulders cold, and even the thickest wool sweater won’t warm you now. There’s only one thing to do, Sagittarius: embrace the f-word and forgive. And if you really want to be radical, be the first one to say “I’m sorry.” Somebody’s gotta get the party started here, and it looks like you may be it. This doesn’t mean you have to invite all of the people in question back into your world. But adopt a mantra of “live and let live.” They’re on their journeys; you’re on yours. Accept your differences and funnel your energy towards people with whom you can actually make progress. Retrograde Mercury may have stirred up old fears or fogged your creative lens. From Tuesday until December 10, face down the monster under the bed. You might even take a self-defense class if you feel helpless to protect yourself. Just a reminder that you can kick ass and take names—literally—can reconnect you to your inner and outer strength. If there’s a song, painting, even the next great American novel burning in your psyche, circle the next two weeks as prime production time. You might lock yourself away in the proverbial studio for hours at a time, channeling the muse and getting your brilliant visions down on paper, canvas, or sculpted into form. On Thursday, an important relationship reaches a milestone moment under the spell of the lunar (full moon) eclipse in Gemini and your seventh house of partnerships. Who came into your orbit near May 20? That was the day of the corresponding solar (new moon) eclipse in Gemini, and a relationship that was born that day could find its groove, becoming “officially official.” Eclipses DO reveal shadows, so brace yourself for some surprises. You might realize that the uber-helpful coworker or the friend whose shoulder you’ve been crying on for months is actually (duh!) The One. Or, you could tap into the very reason you’ve been so frustrated with your current relationship—and if you do, look out! You’re not one to mince words, Sagittarius, but you’ll want to hold your fire and vent to a levelheaded third party before you unleash a tirade on your boo. It’s easy to forget that it takes two to tango. How have you participated in this dynamic, Sag? Yes, it’s time to make a change…and a big one…but you can do so without bringing the relationship to its knees. Let this eclipse turn your attention towards proactive, cooperative solutions. They do exist! Business partnerships are swayed by this eclipse, which could herald an exciting contract or end one that you’ve honestly outgrown. While there can be temporary turmoil as you scramble to find a replacement, the next two weeks will shed light on options that are bigger, better, and more likely to take you where you truly want to go.

 

Scorpio

Lift the gag order! Since November 14, communicator Mercury has been retrograde (backwards) in Scorpio, making for some “open mouth, insert Manolo” gaffes you wish to high heavens you could take back. First and foremost, stop being so hard on yourself! Slip-ups happen, Scorpio, and joining a brigade of silent monks need not be your fate. But here’s a little news worth celebrating: on Tuesday, Mercury goes direct, powering forward through your sign and blessing you with gift of gab until December 10. Talk about a turnaround! You could sell chocolate Santas to St. Nick himself, so get your materials in order and go pitch like the wind. People will finally get it, their quizzical stares replaced with looks of complete wonder and awe. Pick up that LBD from the dry cleaner and stock your beaded clutch with business cards. Holiday parties double as networking events and an opportunity to cleverly bend the ears of some VIPs in your network. A sidelined personal project picks up steam again, and you could pull in for a fantastic Q4 finish! If you’ve been using Mercury retrograde for its best purposes these past few weeks—researching, reviewing and revamping—you can stun with your big reveal in the days ahead. That behind-the-scenes work will really pay off, Scorpio. Nicely done! The coast is clear for any makeover magic you wish to sprinkle into your life. If you’re still feeling that Sailor Jerry tattoo design by Sunday, book the appointment for your inking. Dying your hair Katy Perry (a Scorpio) blue or taking other daring measures to revamp your look will either seem like temporary insanity or the best idea ever as Mercury turns direct. Let the shadow of Mercury retrograde subside this week, then, forge ahead in a clear direction next week when your inner stylista has her head on straight again. On Thursday, a lunar (full moon) eclipse in Gemini brings some seal-the-deal energy into your universe. This eclipse is the culmination point of a corresponding solar (new moon) eclipse in Gemini that happened this past May 20. Discussions about a merger—for romance or finance—that began this spring could get superserious this week. You might just put a ring on it, or sign some form of joining-of-assets contract. This eclipse could bring a big sale, so if you’ve had property on the market or are looking to invest in some yourself, the process will be expedited, moving things along at a faster clip than you may have expected. Your sexual energy is off the charts under the spell of this eclipse and you might just prove every one of those rumors about Scorpios to be true over the coming two weeks. Embrace your magnetism, but turn it on selectively so you don’t wind up stuck with someone who was only there to pump up your ego. There’s an all-or-nothing vibe to this eclipse too, so if you’ve exhausted yourself stressing, obsessing and enduring fits of jealous rage in the name of “love,” harness this lunar power to set yourself free. Cut the cords of a toxic entanglement and free yourself up for a connection that buoys your soul instead of sinking it.

 

Taurus

Lift the gag order! Since November 14, communicator Mercury has been retrograde (backwards) in Scorpio, making for some “open mouth, insert Manolo” gaffes you wish to high heavens you could take back. First and foremost, stop being so hard on yourself! Slip-ups happen, Scorpio, and joining a brigade of silent monks need not be your fate. But here’s a little news worth celebrating: on Tuesday, Mercury goes direct, powering forward through your sign and blessing you with gift of gab until December 10. Talk about a turnaround! You could sell chocolate Santas to St. Nick himself, so get your materials in order and go pitch like the wind. People will finally get it, their quizzical stares replaced with looks of complete wonder and awe. Pick up that LBD from the dry cleaner and stock your beaded clutch with business cards. Holiday parties double as networking events and an opportunity to cleverly bend the ears of some VIPs in your network. A sidelined personal project picks up steam again, and you could pull in for a fantastic Q4 finish! If you’ve been using Mercury retrograde for its best purposes these past few weeks—researching, reviewing and revamping—you can stun with your big reveal in the days ahead. That behind-the-scenes work will really pay off, Scorpio. Nicely done! The coast is clear for any makeover magic you wish to sprinkle into your life. If you’re still feeling that Sailor Jerry tattoo design by Sunday, book the appointment for your inking. Dying your hair Katy Perry (a Scorpio) blue or taking other daring measures to revamp your look will either seem like temporary insanity or the best idea ever as Mercury turns direct. Let the shadow of Mercury retrograde subside this week, then, forge ahead in a clear direction next week when your inner stylista has her head on straight again. On Thursday, a lunar (full moon) eclipse in Gemini brings some seal-the-deal energy into your universe. This eclipse is the culmination point of a corresponding solar (new moon) eclipse in Gemini that happened this past May 20. Discussions about a merger—for romance or finance—that began this spring could get superserious this week. You might just put a ring on it, or sign some form of joining-of-assets contract. This eclipse could bring a big sale, so if you’ve had property on the market or are looking to invest in some yourself, the process will be expedited, moving things along at a faster clip than you may have expected. Your sexual energy is off the charts under the spell of this eclipse and you might just prove every one of those rumors about Scorpios to be true over the coming two weeks. Embrace your magnetism, but turn it on selectively so you don’t wind up stuck with someone who was only there to pump up your ego. There’s an all-or-nothing vibe to this eclipse too, so if you’ve exhausted yourself stressing, obsessing and enduring fits of jealous rage in the name of “love,” harness this lunar power to set yourself free. Cut the cords of a toxic entanglement and free yourself up for a connection that buoys your soul instead of sinking it.

 

Virgo

Say, say, say. Scrambled signals and communication breakdowns will soon be a thing of the past—can we get an “Amen!” Virgo? This Tuesday, your ruling planet Mercury resumes forward motion after a grueling three week retrograde. Communication, transportation, and the travel of information are all Mercury’s domain, but since November 6, they are areas of life that have recently seemed foiled by the stars. Over the meadow and through the woods may have taken you on an aggravating detour before you landed on grandmother’s doorstep for last week’s Thanksgiving celebrations. Butting heads with a sibling, neighbor, coworker, or close friend may also have disrupted the grateful vibes. And oh, how ugly the gossip may be, with you finding it difficult not to be lured into the he-said, she-said cesspool. Enough of that whole “rumor has it,” mess Virgo! De-friending may be the best course of action with a few people, or at the very least, going to your respective corners to cool down. But with Mercury forward flowing once again, you might actually laugh off a ridiculous (because admit it, it really was) blowup or forge ahead with a stalled partnership before the week is through. If you’ve been using retrograde Mercury for its best purposes all November—which is anything with a “re” associated with it, such as research, revisions, and reunions—you may be bursting with excitement, ready to present your findings to the world. Come on out of hiding! Schedule the pitch meeting, make your presentation, invite your stay-at-home-mom/high-school-pal to brunch with the cosmopolitan crew you’ve collected since graduation (a weird mix, sure, but variety is the spice of life). Drive off the dealership lot with an eco-chic hybrid, as retrograde Mercury’s “lemon-factor” is a non-issue after Tuesday; or, get your stereo system updated so you can easily play music from your iPod while you drive. Mobile gadgets of all manners are Mercury’s domain, so chuck the old school cell phone for one that actually has a keyboard. If you take public transportation, treat yourself to an e-reader to make your commutes more enjoyable. Your on-the-go lifestyle can still be enjoyable, Virgo! On Thursday, a lunar (full moon) eclipse in Gemini and your tenth house lights the way to a brilliant career opportunity. Just as Earth’s shadow will only be visible on the moon for a short spell, this prospect could come and go in a near flash. You’ll have to throw your Virgoan caution to the wind and trust your intuition. If your gut says “Go for it!” don’t waste time opinion-polling every friend who will pick up her phone. Make an autonomous decision and leap! Eclipses can black out one option, forcing you to look in a new direction. Should one door close (even temporarily) on Thursday, forget about fiddling with the lock. Search for a window, as there is something beyond your current scope that is calling you. A helpful man may be part of the picture: the tenth house is the cosmic boys’ club, so tap the guys in your circle if you need a boost up the ladder this week. Your relationship with one man in particular could reach a milestone…or watershed…moment, which will play out over the next two weeks. This eclipse is the culmination of a corresponding solar (new moon) eclipse that occurred on May 20, 2012. Look back to what was happening then for clues about what might be wrapping up—or ascending to the next level—this week. Have you climbed as high as you can together, or is there further for you and this fella to go, with love or your shared work? Eclipses reveal shadows and hidden potential for the two of you may be illuminated (thank goodness you didn’t write him off in a hotheaded huff!). But if you’ve known for a while that you’ve reached the agonizing end of the road, utilize this eclipse to say your farewell with love, opening up the space for an even better replacement to walk in.
