Have you had enough time to look around and make some fun, foolish mistakes? (read your last week's forecast for reference) Great! So now you know that there is no more walking back, reversing, or turning around for you because it's time to drive ahead, dahlings! I hope today you'll be able to decide and plan for a fresh, new beginning in your life. It’s gonna be a bumpy ride, but don’t lose hope yet!


(Kylie getting it right.)
 
This week we will meet our usual lunation, New Moon in Sagittarius, on November 29th to enlighten us on a new direction to aim further. (Yes, it is that time of the month again.) We don’t know what’s going to happen next, but with a jolt of optimism, everything will seem a lot more possible. But a change of flow will not easily happen without any disruption. The Universe will pressure us from every direction to make sure we start changing our habits and our ways. It seems as if there’s only one way to be alive, which is to face our greatest fear as whichever way you prefer will only bounce you back to the intended path.
 
A new moon lunation may signify a fresh start, but with the feeling of uncertainty shivering down your spine by the time you walk your first step, it would be difficult not to stay pessimistic. But don’t worry. With Sagittarius as the host of the month, just remember that optimism will rule any doubt you'll have in mind and keep you afloat.
 
During the lunation, there will be a strong sextile between Saturn in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Libra. As the ruler of Sagittarius, Jupiter's harmonious aspect with the Saturn as the guest reminds you to play nice with your allies and to stay in contact, in case things don’t work out while you carry out your personal mission. The Saturn is also in a harmonious sextile aspect with Mars in Aquarius, while Mars forms a beautiful trine with Jupiter. Expect a significant change carried by new friends and networks which will broaden your mind and fill it with innovative ideas.





However, we should also pay attention to the stubbornness caused by Uranus retrograde in Aries when it opposites Jupiter in Libra because that’s the one thing that will prevent us from growing. A part of us wants to be a lone heroine, although we understand that a significant change can’t happen without a support system. Skepticism in accepting a different opinion from others will also more likely to happen through the trine aspect of Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Sagittarius, along with Mercury’s entrance to Capricorn on December 3rd. Mercury in Capricorn is a tough cookie, making our communication flow almost impossible without facts and figures, while Saturn in Sagittarius brings out our inner skeptic in search for a greater truth.



But you see, if we are not open-minded enough to see a situation from another perspective, we might not move towards a progressive change at all. Our nation, for example, has had enough of a one-sided discourse, and both conservatives and liberals need to get out of their bubble and start a healthy conversation. We may not be able to reach an agreement about whether Ahok committed a blasphemy or not, but agreeing to disagree is better than conversing only with someone with a similar perspective as ours.
 
However, at the end, we shouldn’t hold grudges over disagreements. This week’s forecast gives you the idea that a stronger bond and a better outcome will likely to happen out of a clash of energy. Keep calm and stay positive, guys! Changes are inevitable. But why dwell in the negative when you can turn everything into a positive experience?
 
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
Knight of Wands
 
You can't fight fire with fire, Sagittarius. You have done your best, but sometimes there are things that we can't control, although we refuse to give it up. If the situation won't let you win, maybe it's time to surrender yourself. If you decide to accept defeat, it doesn't mean that you have failed or betrayed yourself. It only means that you have assessed your situation carefully, and understand not to fall into the same trap twice. Don't be a Jon Snow and send yourself into an impossible Battle of Bastards. Retreat, come up with a stronger strategy and prepare enough energy to fight another day.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Knight of Swords
 
Just like swallowing a bitter pill to get cured of the flu, we have to appreciate the bad with the good. All good things come with a learning process, although the process can be excruciating or brooding for us. What you want to happen in love or career may take a lot of hard, dirty work. But as long as you can endure the bad, you're fine to reap the goods. May the odds be ever in your favor!
 
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Ace of Disks
 
Try to find solace in the comfort of self-company, Aquarius. It's like being alone, but not lonely. Your source of inspiration can only come into sight if your mind is calm and ready to receive it. If you're a creative worker, you need a break to find the breadcrumbs once again on your trail. Meditate, have a walk in a park and have a nice breath of fresh air as a start.
 
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
The Priestess
 
Ignore the uncomfortable feeling if you have to, Pisces. The most logical decision that you can make to advance your career or study may require you to swallow your emotions. If I were you, I wouldn't succumb to it. I would endure the feelings and let myself make a decision that will benefit me. What's a successful life without an equally challenging sacrifice?
 
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
The Empress
 
Under your leadership and protective nature, you’ll be tempted to lend a hand. If you have the time, go ahead and be of help to them. However, you always have to put yourself first, before everything else. You can't patch someone's wound if you're out on a limb. Avoid making rash decisions that will cause you to be on the losing side. Selflessness is not meant for you this week, Aries.
 
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
Two of Cups - Love
 
You can't expect others to understand you if you haven't put that much effort to educate them. A relationship is a two-way thing, Taurus. Without a balance of trust and understanding between two lovers, there are no pillars to sustain your relationship. Everything must be shared equally including mutual support and respect. Tell me, do they know you like you know yourself?
 
Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)
Four of Wands - Completion
 
We can’t analyze someone solely based on their mistakes, as we have to count their good deeds too. It may be easy to look the other way, but how would that make you feel to know that you have judged someone so wrongly? Nobody's perfect, Gemini. Some people indeed has two extreme sides of the coin. But that shouldn't make you give up on looking at someone's brighter side.
 
Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)
Five of Wands - Strife
 
One day you’ll be thankful of your younger-self for saving up your salary. You know things haven’t been doing well with your expenses, particularly with extra payments that seem to appear out of nowhere every month. So let's try to keep the finance going by saving some extra coins into your piggy. If you can't commit to it yourself, sit down with your loved ones and make a plan for your monthly finances.
 
Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
The Chariot
 
If you don't act now, you're going to miss your chances, Leo. The world moves faster than you think, making it difficult for you to stop and smell the roses. Start working and less daydreaming. If you feel that now is the right time to make an investment, do it. If a company finally offers you a good spot with a good paycheck, take it. You can think twice, but don't wait until the offer is gone.
 
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Five of Disks - Worry
 
Every problem will sound like music to your ears if you are ready to listen between the lines. If your problem sounds too complicated, that might be because the way your brain perceives it. That's also likely to happen if an opportunity sounded too good to be true. Sharpen your intuition, find a method to listen to someone's intention, to avoid wasting your time and energy.
 
Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)
Ten of Wands - Oppression
 
We don't play by the rules this week, Libra. The situation and your environment might tell you to stop pursuing something you love. But you know that someday things are going to be okay. Even though that someday does not mean tomorrow, your strong belief and passion will show you the way. Make some mistake, piss some people off, if that's what it takes to climb that success ladder.
 
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Six of Cups - Pleasure
 
If you want to know how everyone around you seems to get their shit together, try doing your thing the way they do their business. Find a balance between pleasure and work with the help of those who had been in your mess before. Don't succumb to the voices in your head that's been telling you to nap before 1 p.m. Play hard, but don't forget to work hard too!
