Predictions for the week of November 25
All Signs: The Full Moon in Gemini on Wednesday the 28th looks pretty smooth. However, the day before (it’s always the day before when the tension is strongest) looks scary because Mars and Pluto are lined up. (Ouch.) This will be harsh, especially for societies dealing with war-like situations. However, for the average person who is fortunate enough to be free of this strife, it just threatens power struggles and conflicts with others. (“Just?”) The week starts out tough but after hump day, things will mellow out beautifully. It’s like doing your work before getting your reward. (The ultimato where you have to eat your vegetables if you want dessert.)
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Be careful. The build-up of energy before the Full Moon on Wednesday will create an accident-prone influence. This could be stubbing your toe, a fender bender in a parking lot or a verbal blunder. “I can’t believe I just said that.” But what you really have to watch out for is a careless word or thoughtless action that might get you in trouble with an authority figure. And I hate to say it but this is likely. Then you’ll find yourself in a power struggle with a parent, boss, teacher or the police. (They say if you have bad manners you have to have fast reflexes.) Be mindful of what you do at the beginning of the week so you can enjoy the sweet times later in the week.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The Full Moon this week will bring something to a head related to cash flow, earnings or perhaps even something you own. You might have disputes about money or possessions. Or you might have disputes about earnings. It could even relate to your belief about something because, at the beginning of the week, you feel righteous and zealous about religious issues, politics or even racial matters. In fact, you feel so strongly about this, you won’t back down. But where does that get you? Will it solve the problem? If you are immovable and rigid, what’s the point? Fortunately, after the Full Moon peaks on Wednesday morning, it’s smiles all ’round, especially with partners and close friends.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Well, the only Full Moon in your sign all year is taking place this week. Of course, it’s not something you notice at precisely a certain moment. More likely you will have difficulties with others, especially partners and close friends, at the beginning of the week because of tension that is building up within you. Disputes about shared property, inheritances, insurance matters, taxes, debt or anything you own jointly with others are likely. You might be upset if someone breaks or uses something you own. Be reassured that by Thursday, things look much better and you’re getting along swimmingly with everyone at work and in bed. (In some cases, this is the same person.)
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The beginning of this week will be challenging because the alliance of Mars and Pluto occurs directly opposite your sign, which means that you will be at odds with partners and close friends. (At odds is putting it mildly.) In fact, avoid dark alleys and crime-ridden areas because there is the potential for violence. In your personal life, you might say or do things you regret. Keep this in mind. Fortunately, after the Full Moon peaks on Wednesday morning, your life will become much smoother! In fact, romance with someone older or of an age difference is likely. (And as we know from the Petraeus scandal, the e-mail of the species is more deadly than the mail.)
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
The energy building up to the Full Moon on Wednesday will play havoc with your romantic life. Expect increased tension and misunderstandings. (“Her huff arrived and she left.”) This same tension could create difficulties with your children. Try to minimize this because the fallout is often worse than the cause. Remain on good terms with loved ones. One of the reasons, you might be short-tempered or impatient is you’re working so hard at the beginning of the week. The demands on you will be overwhelming, but you will pull through because you always do. After Wednesday morning, your home life will be much happier, although Friday will have a few rocky moments.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Difficulties with parents, teachers, bosses, the police and authority figures are likely this week because of the Full Moon on Wednesday. You’ll feel the tension building up by Monday. On Tuesday, you’ll be aggressive about getting your way in creative matters, sports, anything to do with children, the entertainment world, the hospitality industry and vacations or social outings. It’s as if you are obsessed. You’re driven! By Wednesday afternoon, you’ll feel a breakthrough and relations with others will be much sweeter. Expect a few detours Friday afternoon. Later in the week, look for ways to earn money from writing, teaching, acting and talking. (Others will be impressed with your wisdom and your good advice.)
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Until Wednesday this week, it’s an accident-prone time for you. Pay attention to everything you say and do. More than any other sign, you are affected by your surroundings. (Lighting, smells and the general vibe.) Since it appears there’s a lot of insane chaos and increased activity where you live, this will upset you. No question. Although you’re not always super-neat, you like to have a beautiful ambience. You like physical and visual comfort and when your surroundings are insane, that’s how you get. Just tough it out because by Wednesday afternoon, things look so much better, financially as well. (It’s always darkest before it gets pitch black.)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
The Full Moon this week sharply defines your financial scene. Make friends with your bank account to find out how much money you don’t have. Your concerns will be financial, or about earnings, or about shared property, or about something you own. Whatever the case, arguments on Monday and Tuesday could be nasty (and for some, even violent). Keep in mind that anger serves no purpose other than to make everyone miserable. (Including you.) Even if you have to plot your greatest revenge, anger will only cloud your mind. Anger is not the answer. And remember that you see life in black-and-white terms. By Wednesday afternoon, you’ll feel great and you’ll look great. Just hang in there.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
The only Full Moon directly opposite your sign all year is taking place this week. That’s why partnerships and close friendships will be strained. To make matters worse, on Monday and Tuesday quarrels about money and possessions could arise, especially with authority figures. This calls for your breezy Sagittarian charm! What’s the point of having all that lighthearted, bon vivant optimism if you don’t use it? Resist becoming totally fixated or obsessed about financial matters (or possessions) at the beginning the week. Be accommodating and ready to compromise. When things get easier later in the week, you’ll be glad you didn’t make a big fuss.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Many of you will be gripped with a desire for power at the beginning the week. You might become downright pushy. (You’ll want to take things over and run them the way you want.) Some of you might even encounter violence as a result of this. (Heavy-duty, yes, I know.) Ironically, you can use this same strong energy to your benefit. Jogging, working out at the gym, or doing any kind of physical work that tests your endurance will blow off some of this steam and, at the same time, allow you to improve your health, your body and get a lot done. Obvious choice, isn’t it? This way you can avoid steamrolling over others. By Wednesday afternoon, friendship with someone of an age difference will be heartwarming. (Could even spark into a romance.)
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
A vague disgruntled feeling might set you on edge at the beginning of the week. You might not know why you feel this way, although some of you will. The point is it sets you up to be ripe for quarrels with others, especially in group situations, as well as power struggles with your kids. Who needs this? Not you. Once the Full Moon peaks on Wednesday morning, everything rapidly changes! The Sun comes shining through the clouds, at least metaphorically. In fact, people in authority will praise you and be impressed with your efforts. And some of you might even develop a crush on your boss or someone of an age difference. (Could go either way.)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
The energy at the beginning of this week leads to difficulties with bosses, parents and authority figures by midweek. More specifically, you will feel pulled between the demands of career and your external world vs. the demands of home and family. It’s very tough to keep it all together. As you feel the tension increasing, you might take it out on a friend or act out in some kind of a group situation or even quit a club. Guard against hasty action in the beginning of the week, because you might feel obsessed (you know who you are) and then later, regret saying or doing something. For example, don’t ask people what sex they are. When in doubt, just try to guess.
