Week of: November 18-24

“A marriage always seems like a good idea when you’re about to commit one.” Martin Warshaw in Bruce Sterling’s recent (and quite good) novel, “Holy Fire.” [NY: Bantam, 1996. p. 9]

Aries [3/23-4/20]: This whole work-money-fishing thing that you’ve got going on gets pushed more and more this week. There is an incredible pressure coming from the heavens which would indicate this is a good time to ask your boss for a raise. I mean, with the approaching holidays and all, you sure could use that extra cash, right? Better yet, even with all the credit card business in such disarray, you will probably get a new cad in the mail this week. Don’t tear it up, either, just remember that it’s only borrowed money.

Taurus [4/21-5/22]: You start out the week with a strong concern for family obligations, and you end the week with much better perspective on what is going on. In fact, you will feel like some sort of weight has been lifted. Sort of like a friend showing up to help carry your emotional baggage. There, I hope that’s good news because the week really does have many positive twists to it. Got your T-Day stuff all lined up? I hope so.

Gemini [5/23-6/21]: Gemini is not usual associated with being a stubborn sign, however, this week, it really feels like you have a stubborn streak which is going to show itself. Something about family obligations gets on your nerves. I wouldn’t worry about, if you could just flip back to being the adaptable person that you are, then this little familial obligation won’t bother you so much. Besides, what is family for in the first place? We’re here to irritate you.

Cancer [6/22-7/22]: Clarity and single-mindedness of action, direction, all those good words which make you sound like you really know what you are doing this week — that’s what comes to mind. The only thing I would warn you about, and this is a trite expression from the old rodeo days, but “getting off the bull is a lot harder than getting on the bull.” As long as you maintain you sense of direction, you won’t feel too bad when you hit the dirt this week.

Leo [7/23-8/23]: This is a good week to argue. Now, before giving away information like that, I maybe I should explain: The lawyer star, the planet which benefit rhetoric (the art of persuasion) is lined up in a really nice way with you this week. So pick your words carefully, and then watch as you win all the arguments. Just remember that this is guaranteed, like I would like to make it for every Leo, it’s just that you have a fortuitous arrangement in the sky right now which lends you all kinds of good stuff. It’s like having a shiny new pick up truck!

Virgo [8/24-9/23]: There are certain things that you need to learn about, like: what’s the difference between strong-minded, and being stupidly-stubborn? The old saying goes, “Walk softly and carry a big stick.” The problem started out last week, and it gotten to the point where many people feel like it is way out of hand right now. Relax. Chill out. Step back and look at the big picture. Get some focus here. Where’s your perspective? Can’t you see what is really going on? If you answer no, I would have to wonder if you were just being stubborn.

Libra [9/24-10/23]: Your are just no wrapping up a big project at work. That’s one thing which is going on. The good news is that this brings in some cash. Now, the other thing which is going on is that you you an increased ability to communicate with siblings and family members. Looks like a party atmosphere, and you will find that your creative expression is is much favored. In plainer words: think about a new paint scheme for your beloved boat. Or plant some flowers in that old empty tire out in the front yard.

Scorpio [10/24-11/23]: You get some much needed lifts in your energy level this week because Venus comes boot scooting into your sign towards the weekend. This means nice things are going to happen to you. I would look for small conflict of wills, though, as some other fixed signs (Taurus, especially) makes a little bit of trouble for you. Of course, under the loving light of Venus, you aren’t quite so hostile this week. I don’t recommend handguns, though, as a form of resolving differences.

Sagittarius [11/24-12/21]: What a wonderful way to begin a birthday month! There is a great deal of “out with the old” attitude going on this week as the Sun and Pluto do a little tango. It’s less of a tango that some highly ornate (and unrecognized) new jangled dance step which is a cross between break dancing and the Texas-Two step. Cement some new bonds this week, but be careful that these new bonds aren’t like cement over shoes, if you know what I mean.

Capricorn [12/22-1/20]: Intuition, those little voices in your head, are much sharper this week. Be careful, though, because if you get too many little voices in your head, or if you try to tell someone about the voices in your head, then you get to make a trip to see the head doctor, and all that doctor does is give the funny pills which make everything okay. You don’t want to lose yourself, just because you were trying to tell some folks about he voices in your head. It’s our secret and I won’t tell.

Aquarius [1/21-2/18]: Now, conventional astrology, which rarely applies to Aquarius, would have it that you starting out the week with a big bang, I mean, even late Sunday night you find your Monday morning is already here. Then it just progresses into a natural rhythm of where the cycles of love and hate get really close. It’s like this: imagine yourself sitting in a bass boat with a good friend and fishing partner. Imagine that in less than 30 seconds this person has had the temerity to really piss you off. Now, in another 30 seconds, you feel nothing but love and compassion (in a platonic, fishing buddy way) for this person. Quite the cycle, isn’t it? But wait, this just gets more pronounced throughout the week. Have a safe trip.

Pisces [2/19-3/22]: I hate talking about these difficult times, but a few months ago, I told you to “get on the stick” about taking care of some important arrangements for the upcoming holiday. As usual, you didn’t listen. If it wasn’t for some (insurance calls it an “act of God” clause) heavenly help, you would be a in world of hurt right now. Actually, you are due for a long lost friend to show up and bail you out of this one. I wouldn’t worry about it all. Not one little bit.
