Weekly Horoscopes

Nov. 28th-Dec. 4th


 ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Out of this world.
The good thing about Neptune influences is that they take you out of yourself. You enter a world of nuance, magic and romance. As long as you remind yourself that what you are experiencing isn’t real in the sense that you can bottle it and put a label on it, you’ll be fine. The danger is that you will believe in situations that and people who are not what and who they seem. There is a lot of smoke and mirrors to deal with at the moment, so avoid putting your signature on anything that isn’t grounded in reality and you have the paperwork to prove it. Go gently on the cool aid.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
If it’s real, there are no ifs ands and buts.

November goes out in much the same way as it came in – in a whirl of confusion and uncertainty. It may still be impossible to get dates in diaries and rock-solid answers to important questions, so be patient and go with the flow. The problem is Neptune-shaped. This planet blurs the edges of life so that you cannot draw conclusions or, indeed, see the best way ahead. If you can put a situation on hold and give people more time to reach their conclusion, you will be helping yourself. On the other hand, you may be enjoying the otherworldly aspects of this planet of mystery, in which case immerse yourself in the experience but with the knowledge that it Isn’t sustainable in the long term.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Be true to yourself.

Planets have tiers of meaning – some positive and others negative – so, with Neptune in high profile at the moment, you could be thrilled with developments and on a high, or completely baffled and in a dip. The thing is, with Neptune in particular, you’re never seeing the whole picture, just a part of it, and even then, that may be clouded, often by your hopes and fears. So, step back and look at what you know to be real and leave all the rest to reveal itself at the appropriate time. Maybe someone’s behaviour doesn’t make sense or what you were told a while ago appears no longer to be the case so knowing where you are and keeping your integrity in tact is all you can do.


CANCER (June 21- July 22)
Confusing.

You may have heard me say this before, but when you don’t know what to do, do nothing. It’s the advice I always give when Neptune’s in high profile and we do not know what to make of developments or who to trust. November has been largely volatile so it is going to take a while for the mist to clear and we can see where we are. The area of work and wellbeing is in focus at the moment, so there could be confusion in the workplace and/or health issues to resolve. Trust nothing and no one until you have information in black and white.


LEO (July 23-August 23)
Magic.

The start to December raises the prospect of Christmas to come. In times past this would be a happy prospect, but over the past couple of years compromises have had to be made and it hasn’t been quite the same. However, there is magic in these stars, which could make you feel a whole lot more, well, Christmassy! Neptune is master of ceremonies, bringing out the best of us in terms of compassion, empathy, kindness and consideration, so an act of generosity and selflessness performed now could make a positive difference to your outlook. On the other hand, Neptune is a confusing influence, so if you face a disappointment of any sort, reboot your confidence and faith in the future.


VIRGO (Aug 24-Sept22)
Not everything is real.

There’s a whole lot of Neptune going on! This planet of the divine and the deceptive remains in your seventh house, which is why some of you have been taken to the stars and others plunged to the depths. However, it’s all a matter of perception. Maybe someone has let you down, but is it that you ignored the signs; you wanted to believe in that person or that situation? Perhaps, what is revealed at this time doesn’t inspire joy, but had your desires been fulfilled, they would have been detrimental to your future. Always with Neptune, there’s something we missed or, more important, something we’re missing. Look closely at situations, do backchecks on people and don’t believe word of mouth.


LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)
Deceptive.

At best, this 2stro-scape is deeply romantic and highly inspiring; at worst, it is confusing and hazardous. In part, any confusion may lie in recent events, which could have thrown a plan or two into the shredder, but it could also have to do with the information you are receiving or not receiving. This is no time to jump into the deep end with both feet: you need to be anchored and on firm ground. Perhaps someone has not kept their word or something you were hoping for cannot happen, however, there is a good reason behind any delays or disappointments. Not every Libran is going to be in a puddle of confusion, and some may be having a dream of a time. Even so, don’t lose sight of reality.


SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21)
A time of transition.

November may well have left its mark on your life, whether for wonderful reasons or quite the reverse, but November is over and a new month and a new order is beginning. Don’t worry if you can’t see any bright prospects ahead, Neptune is spreading mist and murk making it very difficult to see what is right in front of you. Acts of kindness are needed now, as is faith in the future. Sometimes, of course, Neptune hands us a gift and instead of being let down or confused, we are elevated and inspired. Accept your joys with humility. You have deserved them. And if you are sad and lost, a way forward will soon appear.


 SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21)

Trust only what you know to be true.
We’re adrift in the wonderful world of Neptune at the moment. Distracted. Unsure what something or someone means and at a loss as to what our next move should be. There could be a variety of reasons for your confusion: you could be madly in love, in receipt of the most marvellous news or trying to get your head around something that simply doesn’t make sense. I’d say, this will all pass, and it will, but standing still in the middle of nowhere is hard. There are some misconceptions to resolve, whether in relation to the bigger global picture or your personal world. Trust only what you know to be true.


CAPRICORN (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Wandering and wondering.
Not only are most of the personal planets moving through the deeps of the twelfth house, but Neptune is in high profile making life and love even more confusing. Plus, there’s a chance you’re not quite the full shilling, so to speak. Everything will become clear soon, and you will feel on firmer ground, but for now you should treat information with a degree of scepticism and make decisions on the basis that things may change. Even you may decide on a different course of action in the future. You cannot control certain aspects of your existence now any more than you can control the weather.


AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18)
Doublecheck everything.
If you’ve got a funny feeling that something isn’t quite right, you’re not. Neptune’s misty tentacles are all over this week’s astrology, making it difficult to see the true picture. Don’t be surprised if something goes missing and, after hours – even days – of fruitless searching, there is it is hiding in plain sight. With this in mind, avoid dashing off an email or filling out a form without going through it again and again. Indeed, with Neptune turning direct in the money zone, you have to be particularly careful of financial transactions. It might also be prudent to make sure you are still in good odour with certain people.


PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20)

Not quite what you thought.

When Neptune is in high profile, you can never be sure whether you’re going to get magic or mayhem, but it’s probably better to assume something isn’t going to be quite what you thought it was. That can mean a task you believed was plain-sailing turns into a complicated and confusing exercise or that a date/meeting is a bit of a disappointment. Things go missing under Neptune, they get distorted, and you can feel let down and disrespected. Even if you get the best side of this planet, and it seems as though a dream has come true, at some point you’ll have to come back down to earth.
