Astrology forecast for Nov. 21-Dec. 4



    By Cortney Litwin/Staff Writer

    A romance or financial endeavor that may have stalled around Oct. 10 when Venus went retrograde will finally progress after the 21st, when the planet of ardor and luxury turns direct. Furthermore, the red-hot pairing of Mars and Venus through all of December in the sultry, possessive sign of Scorpio is sure to make things interesting in the relationship department.

    The New Moon in Sagittarius on Dec. 3 brings spirituality, education and foreign relations to the forefront. Communicative Mercury combined with secretive Pluto and upstanding Jupiter around Dec. 1 will bring hidden agendas into the open in both world events and your personal life.

    Gemini (May 21-June 21)

    You’ll uncover what you need to know when your Mercury ruler dances with Pluto, the planet of subterfuge. Remove unhealthy people/activities from your life. The New Moon brings in a partnership of professional or personal significance to your future.

    Cancer (June 22-July 22)

    The rendezvous between Venus and Mars in passionate Scorpio heats up a romance as well as your creativity. Just don’t let the green demon, jealousy, get the better of you. The New Moon in your health area dispatches you to the gym.

    Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

    The passionate pairing of Venus and Mars makes your home a romantic haven. Stay in and play. Redecorating your abode may also be satisfying. The New Moon highlights the activities of Aphrodite as well, with some storms thrown in for interest.

    Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

    A little detective work will reveal a secret. In the romance arena, a love affair may begin with a letter-or e-mail. The New Moon says it’s time for a fresh start with a family member and a cleansing of any bad vibes from your home environment.

    Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

    Balance is thrown to the winds with the entanglement of your gentle Venus ruler with aggressive Mars. Perhaps it’s time to go after what you want and speak your mind. The New Moon also emphasizes straightforward communications.

    Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

    Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

    An unfinished emotional tie from the past may spark a secretive encounter. Or perhaps a past life issue with your present partner is revealed. Take some quiet time to recharge. The New Moon in your sign indicates a new cycle in your personal life.

    Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

    You’re a magnet for fundraising for a good cause. In the social arena, powerful friends influence your actions and may bring an opportunity. The New Moon, however, urges you to take time from worldly activities to listen inwardly for guidance.

    Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

    Use your personal power and enhanced creativity to advance your career. Recognition should come your way if you don’t let a dominating superior or client throw you off track. The New Moon brings opportunities through social activities.

    Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

    The Venus and Mars in Scorpio combo brings out your creativity and an urge to travel, perhaps with a romantic partner. Education is also highlighted. If you keep your eyes open, the New Moon will reveal a new career path.
