Nov. 30-Dec. 6, 2007
A serious turn of mind as the bullish Sagittarius sun conflicts
with bearish Saturn in discerning Virgo on Friday, but that mindset could be easily
dispelled over the weekend. Mercury enters wise and witty Sag on Saturday; sociable
Venus and jolly Jupiter sextile on Sunday. Venus leaves genteel, judicious Libra
on Wednesday for a 25-day trip through sexy, secretive Scorpio. By Thursday, you
could be in shock or in awe, a reaction to the difficult square between destructive
Uranus and the fiery Sag sun.


You won't be doing as much wishful thinking about your future as thoughtful
planning. While the spirited Sagittarius sun brings lifelong aspirations back
into focus, even an impulsive Aries could spend quality time evaluating what you
have yet to experience. Don't be surprised if you finally figure out how
and when you can visit your own idea of Shangri-la. Until the winter solstice
blows in, Rams, especially those born in mid-April, are in an excellent position
to achieve whatever they bloody well want.


While it might not be a graceful segue, as your Venus ruler moves from sociable
Libra to your Scorpio marriage house, you could become even more possessive than
you are at this very moment. Don't think that's possible? Wait and
see what happens midmonth when you're torn between being more attentive
to an attractive partner or accumulating more riches. The heady aroma exuded by
money and power is particularly intoxicating this holiday season. Which is why
you should not leave a vulnerable mate unprotected.


The power lies with the partner. How close to the power source you get depends
in part on just how shaky things are with the people your significant other works
with or the authority figures who claim to be in charge. This week, the disruptive
sun-Uranus square could test your partner's response to swiftly changing
circumstances. If asked, you would gladly help; however, if you volunteer, you're
likely to be rebuffed. It's a matter of who will maintain control during
a crisis, even if the chaos is confined to the kitchen.


Let's assume that Venus' foray into your Scorpio house of romance
and risk will attract some pretty interesting offers. What a Moon Child does with
them depends on how the freewheeling Sagittarius new moon on the 9th will affect
you. To find out, you should probably wait until affectionate Venus forms a rewarding
connection to horny Mars in your sign on the 11th. However, that's also
the day that a powerful astrological event, the merger of Jupiter and Pluto at
the Galactic Center of the Milky Way, takes place. Major distraction.


Although it may seem like you're in control, while your sun ruler is frolicking
in your Sagittarius house of pleasurable pastimes, things could easily get out
of hand. Especially around the 6th, when the sun heads toward a challenging encounter
with erratic Uranus in Pisces, the sign without boundaries. Should you wind up
in hot water, it would help to have an excuse on hand, e.g., a compliant companion,
a doctor's note, to bail with. Nonetheless, the urge to see just how far
out there you can go might be too tempting to resist.


Out of the frying pan and into the fire. Such is the Sagittarius saga, a storyline
you've been hooked on ever since unpredictable Uranus entered your Pisces
partnership house in March 2003. It's one thing when the Virgo sun tests
your ability to handle whatever a nutty partner comes up with for your birthday.
But the conflict engendered by the Sag sun involves everyone in your household
and takes place anytime between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Since there are bound
to be heated discussions and power plays, try to chill.


The party, as you've come to know and love it, is over once your Venus ruler
leaves your sign on the 5th. While the goddess descends into the lower depths
ruled by the Scorpion, a sweet, aboveboard Libra may find that you're spending
a lot more time figuring out how to get people to give you what you secretly crave.
That is, after you find out what it is you secretly crave. Don't be surprised
if that turns out to be a meeting with a wise and powerful wizard or mega-mogul.
Who knew you were so ambitious?


It's your month for hauling in the big money. And this year, because gigantic
Jupiter is merging with your plutocratic Pluto co-ruler, the haul should be huge.
Or at least, bigger than before. It's possible that your love life might
suffer in the transaction; that is, if you have one. But if you don't, then
the result of the Sag sun questioning the boundaries rebellious Uranus insists
upon breaking through might create a situation you're totally unprepared
for. This is why office parties are dangerous.


You've been told all year long that 2007 is your year. Well, not only is
“your year” almost over, the opportunities that have been or shoulda,
coulda, woulda been knocking on your door are about to end as well. On December
18, your expansive Jupiter ruler abandons Sagittarius, not to return for another
12 years. Of course, having the planet that bestows wealth and good fortune in
your Capricorn money house for the next 12 months might not be such a tragedy,
especially if something huge happens during the cosmic coupling on the 11th.


Jot down your dreams; they may be telling you something you need to know. While
prescient Jupiter finishes up its yearlong transit through your Sagittarius 12th
house, the place your unconscious calls home, you could get a clearer picture
of what 2008 will bring. Despite all the holiday parties, try to spend some time
alone, meditating, daydreaming or simply napping. And while you may treasure all
your friends, you'd be wise not to listen to what a few are saying. Or,
more to the point, boasting about.


Once again, it's your idiosyncratic Uranus ruler that is setting the tone,
as unpredictable as it may be, for the holidays. You'll get a taste of the
wildness and weirdness to come around the 6th as the sun tests Uranus' proclivity
for creating shock waves. If you find yourself ordering bizarre novelty items
online to give as Christmas presents, attribute that behavior to Uranus occupying
your Pisces money house. However, the upside to all this astrological action is
the attention being paid to you and your wish list.


Your prospects for a happy holiday season should improve as soon as affectionate
Venus enters sexy Scorpio, another simpatico water sign, on the 5th. With one
small change in the heavens balancing out whatever surprise erotic Uranus in your
sign is creating, a Fish can feel a sense of well-being returning. Add retrograde
Mars mellowing out in your Cancer house of romance and recreation, and you've
got the makings of a soulful sexual encounter waiting to dominate your life in
another week. Be patient; don't push it.
