Forecast for Nov. 20-Dec. 3

A powerful cosmic shift begins this week when Pluto enters Capricorn, a 16-year influence that will shake up and transform the status quo of governments and businesses. On a personal level, it helps eliminate/heal issues that keep us stuck. In the near-term, financial markets will benefit from the stabilizing Jupiter-Saturn trine from the 21st to the end of the month. Optimism prevails when the sun enters fun-loving, philosophical Sagittarius on the 21st, followed by Mercury on the 22nd and the New Moon on the 27th. Uranus accelerates innovative ideas and projects when it turns direct on the 27th. Communications are energized by the Mercury-Mars conjunction on the 28th. Romance turns serious during the Venus-Saturn trine on the 29th, but love gets livelier from the Venus-Jupiter conjunction on Dec. 1.
