Mercury in Capricorn is the master planner, ticking off to-do lists, organizing costings and timelines, taking care of this week’s business. It can be over-serious though, so remember the Ministry of Fun mantra: Don’t do it unless it’s fun, and if you have to do it, make it fun. Here’s your weekly horoscope November 27- December 3, 2023.
Sagittarius, Nov 23 – Dec 21
This week’s combustible combination of Sun and Mars in your vibrant sign fires up tremendous end of year momentum and a dynamic energy boost for organizing festive game plans. Its renegade energies are right up your boulevard, though a note to self to try and not break the bank won’t go astray.
Capricorn, Dec 22 – Jan 20
Continuing all through the first fortnight of December, Mercury in your sign offers an excellent executive assist, which savvy Capricorns will take full advantage of to lock in holiday plans, bookings and activities before the silicate planet’s mid-month reversal rackets up seasonal pressures and tension.
Aquarius, Jan 21 – Feb 19
Aquarians are the zodiac’s premier exponents of communitas or group flow, and this week’s in need of your expertise. Your signature blend of the experimental and sensible is essential for the creative pivots required when expectations go haywire – although it is advisable to wait until asked before offering them.
Pisces, Feb 20 – Mar 20
With nebulous Neptune approaching the end of its long retrograde in Pisces, life comes more clearly into focus. Refreshed from the oceanic planet’s cycle of soul-searching with new clarity and realizations, it will be easier to practise not being overwhelmed by the annual.
Aries, Mar 21 – Apr 21
Aries want what they want, and want it now: probably even sooner with the current planetary power surge. But rushing into something based on the fear of missing out could have unwelcome repercussions. Press the pause button: think this week’s plans and decisions through before making a commitment.
Taurus, Apr 22 – May 21
Your most helpful ally entering December’s hectic end of year countdown? Taurans’ patron planet Venus in her most negotiable and agreeable placement. As the seasonal frenzy picks up the pace, be guided by the principal of graceful behaviour: take your time, be kind, play nice, do things right.
Gemini, May 22 – Jun 22
Full moons tend to bring completions or turning points, so if you’ve been waiting on news, annual Gemini full moon on 27 November in your sign could bring a clear sign or answer. And Mercury’s placement recommends having that air-clearing talk now, before the season of unreason sets in.
Cancer, Jun 23 – Jul 23
For you lunar creatures, articulate full moon on 27 November in the sign of kindred spirits shines on interactions in your local neighbourhood. Full moons often highlight where people’s paths are diverging, so if your heart’s no longer in this or that, be honest and make the break.
Leo, Jul 24 – Aug 23
The dominant celestial energies at this week’s negotiating table could seem unreasonably urgent, so if someone is behaving like a ticking time bomb (hopefully not you), don’t force issues. Give them space. Dial down the drama. Don’t over promise or assume anything. Try not to let minor mistakes escalate into dealbreakers.
Virgo, Aug 24 – Sep 23
Master strategist Mercury, your ruling planet, in the sign of executive organization for the first half of December has you zipping along blissfully in top gear planning the final act of the year. Service is Virgo’s love language, and your practical magic makes a crucial contribution to this week’s merry mayhem.
Libra, Sep 24 – Oct 23
Seeing both sides of any equation can complicate decision-making for Librans. As your prima planet Venus tugs you this week between head and heart, you already know the answer’s a balance of both. Get as much as you can done this week while Venus in Libra has charm on your side.
Scorpio, Oct 24 – Nov 22
Action-master Mars behaving like a runaway train while Mercury’s in stubborn mode could have you looking for the emergency exit this week. But calm down. Relax. Be patient. Splitting hairs is wasted energy, so just retain what’s sane. Channel vixen Venus in glamour puss mode: dress up, enjoy the social whirl.
