Horoscopes for Nov. 28, 2012

By
From page B7 | November 28, 2012 |

The full moon in Gemini and the penumbral lunar eclipse introduce a good point. Our lives are ordered around stories. Stories are rides better than roller coasters. Stories are rocks that outlive generations. Stories are always different depending on who is doing the telling. What’s your story?

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You won’t go down without a fight, and you won’t go up without one, either. There’s nothing wrong with your fighting mood. It’s a sign that you’re very much alive!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The one who thinks of you isn’t always the one who should be thinking of you. You would do well to steer clear of people whose interest is not aligned with yours.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are a role model whether or not you think it’s what you signed up for. Even if you don’t intend for others to copy you, they will. Being aware of your influence will be crucial to your success as a human.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you ask the fire, the lake is an enemy. But if you ask the frog, the lake is home, nourishment and the source of all goodness. You will qualify things according to your need for them.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your needs may currently seem to clash with the needs of another, but this state won’t last forever. You could become partners again sooner than you think. This game can have two winners.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You could use a bit more faith. Instead of working hard to clear a path, believe that the path before you is already being cleared and move ahead with your main goal.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have a “friend” who surpassed you in some regard. Sometimes you wonder whether you’re ever going to see this person get their due comeuppance. You will. Stay focused on your own scene. Keep taking action.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The effect of your words and deeds will be as real as the ripple caused by the rock thrown into still waters. You will immediately see the way you move people.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Mine fields just look like fields until something blows up. Steer clear of temptation. There is a point at which your confidence can harm you. A false sense of security could lead to unnecessary danger.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If you have grasped at something that hasn’t grasped back at you, the time has come to let it go. When you’re on your highest path, the petty concerns will melt away.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Since memory has a way of reordering events, being first or last won’t matter, only what you do with your turn. Play it well, and today becomes a story you’ll often repeat.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People want to be around you now. Perhaps it’s the perfume of victory to which they are responding. Your sign mate Elizabeth Taylor once said, “Success is a great deodorant. It takes away all your past smells.”

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll live thoughtfully. Next month, you’ll be the strong leader of an effective organization. In December, you’ll join a group, make friends and increase your influence. Love grows gradually through January. February financial shifts favor you. Work gets complex, pays better and provides entertainment, too. Leo and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 2, 14, 38 and 33.

CURRENT ASTRAL BACKDROP, URANUS IN ARIES: Uranus was named for the god of the sky, husband to Mother Earth. Though he was an amorous husband, he had one problem with his wife: He couldn’t stand the children she bore him. To be fair, they were unusual. Some were giants with a hundred arms. There was that one-eyed monster. And then there were the Titans: huge, strong and the start of the first pantheon of gods and goddesses. As comparatively “normal” as the Titans were, they would eventually be instrumental in Uranus’ undoing. I’ll spare the gory details. Let’s just say there was a sickle involved, and it wasn’t used for farming. The dysfunction among gods was the “Boardwalk Empire” of the Geometric period.

As a planet, Uranus is about as large and complicated as the god who bears his name. Add “impulsive,” ”surprising” and “revolutionary” to its list of descriptors, and it’s easy to see why astrologers pay such close attention to its every movement. Uranus signifies action.

Already strong-willed, Uranus doesn’t need the extra influence of youth and vigor that comes with Aries. Though radical, many of the changes Uranus brings between now and 2018 will be for the best.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Sagittarians are known for their strong worldviews. Sagittarian comedian Jon Stewart illustrates the point as he turns political drama into punch lines and global events into comedy sketches. A leader in political humor, he provokes thought while offering one of the greatest tools for processing the pain and frustration involved in watching a world that seems out of our control: laughter.
