Horoscopes for Nov. 27, 2012

By
From page B7 | November 27, 2012 |

Power means different things to different creatures. To a whale, it might mean plankton; to a tree, the sun. To humans, it often means the ability to do something in a preferred way. Mars and Pluto conjoin, reminding us that when those ways are impeded, we can either struggle or look for a new way. There almost always is an alternative.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Transitions can be rough, but you’re so ready to move on that the change will be relatively easy. It helps that you feel good about what’s happened so far and can look back with a smile.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The people in your inner circle deserve to be there. You wouldn’t keep them there unless they proved trustworthy. You’ll give your best to the ones who have seen you at your worst.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your favorite responsibilities will be the ones you can execute quickly if not automatically. Your least favorite require so much effort and figuring out that you’ll wonder why you volunteered in the first place.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). How can you be unaffected by the desires and fears of the visible world around you? This seems impossible, and yet you’ll prove that it’s not so hard. You quiet your mind, and a higher purpose takes hold.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Stay cheerful, if not because you genuinely feel like smiling, then because it’s good practice. There will come a time when your positive attitude will make all the difference in the world to someone.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You like to hold the remote, but you’re also the first to admit that total control can be overrated. You’ll submit to the fates and be pleased and surprised by the outcome.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Happiness based on reasons is not true happiness at all because it’s based on a fragile set of circumstances that could change at any moment. True happiness – the kind that cannot be taken away – has no reason.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Tranquility may seem like a stretch, but you’re willing to try for a greater sense of harmony in your world. Paring down your schedule will help. With a few items off of your plate, you can relax and embrace the moment.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will never want for creativity. Inside you exists a wonderful well of ideas you’ve toyed around with and also a deeper reservoir of ideas that have not even been born yet.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Knowing that you’ve done something that helped others is so important to you that you really don’t need much else. Once you see that you’ve had a positive impact, you’ll move on.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Keep to your course. One day you will be victorious. The person who realizes that the journey is long and the road not always smooth and still doesn’t give up is well deserving of success.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have a strong instinct for what’s important, and to the rest you don’t give too much energy. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter, and if it doesn’t matter, then why would you mind?

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Love plays the starring role this year. December brings more questions than answers, and you’ll love being a student of life. After a stint of smart, diligent work at the start of the year, finances improve. Be slow to commit in January because February brings better offers. A June proposal starts an adventure. Aquarius and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 1, 38, 28 and 50.

CURRENT ASTRAL BACKDROP, NEPTUNE IN PISCES: Since Pisces is ruled by Neptune, when the dreamy outer planet inhabits this part of the sky, there is comfort and a sense of being at home. Pisces energy is considered healing, and Neptune touches the medical world with special luck during this 13-year transit. Medical breakthroughs seem to happen on a daily basis these days, and the astounding melding of biology and robotics seems torn from the science fiction of yesteryear.

Neptune has only had one complete orbit since its discovery in 1846. Neptune moved into the feminine sign of Pisces in 1849, which happens to be the same year in which Elizabeth Blackwell became the first woman to receive a medical degree in the United States.

Pisces energy also governs spirituality and art, suggesting shifts in the way people express and identify with these parts of life. A surge of spirituality within and also separate from religion is to be expected; for some, the two areas will seem to have little to do with each other. Many will find or create rituals that heighten a feeling of connectedness to a divine source, or will return to known traditions with new reverence and devotion.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: The course of rock ‘n’ roll was altered by the early licks of Jimi Hendrix. A tragic childhood led Hendrix to quest for freedom, personal expression and artistic liberation through his love affair with electric guitar. Hendrix was born when the sun, Mercury and Venus were in the passionate and adventurous fire sign of Sagittarius. “Excuse me while I kiss the sky.” — Jimi Hendrix
