Weekly Horoscopes for each Sign are listed below after the overview:
|Full Moon in Gemini. Gemini is ruled by Mercury.|
The Magician is ruled by Mercury in the Tarot.
Venus, the ruling planet of Taurus, stands directly across the sky from Uranus in Aries on Monday. Bringing more calm, equilibrium and love to any irritations or sudden situations can greatly diffuse the energy. It’s quite likely that conflicts in relationships can wake you up to realizing where you need to bring more love to the lives of others and yourself. You don’t want to be irritable or mean to those you love. Life can change suddenly, so bring peace and harmony to others and honor their life. Life is short, and that truth speaks to much of what we’re learning this week.
Mars in Libra connects positively with Saturn in Sagittarius on Tuesday. This inspires us to look at our karma, look at our challenges and to use our time wisely so we can make the most of life. This can bring a “You can do it” attitude to many of us so we have the drive, courage, determination and willpower to make something meaningful out of our lives.
Mercury is also in Sagittarius and meets up with Saturn on Tuesday as well. This has us asking ourselves what we’re doing with our lives. Are you really living up to your potential? Are you focused, determined and in the right frame of mind to meet your challenges so you can live with purpose? Are you focusing on joy, enthusiasm and happiness, or are your thoughts leaning more towards fears and limitations?
Mercury and Saturn are both squaring Neptune this week. First, fast moving Mercury zips by Saturn and takes the lead in speaking with Neptune early on Wednesday. I spoke much more on Neptune in last week's horoscope here.
Mercury is the ancient “messenger of the gods” and so this speaks to higher thought and wisdom, which Neptune rules, so although these two planets are in square to one another, there is a rapport between them, an underlying link. Everything is connected.
There is an ancient philosophy about the world and the universe, that All is Mind. There is much depth to this philosophy, but in essence it means that all that exists is consciousness, and that reality is manifested by thoughts. It's all energy and it's all directed by consciousness. Whether you believe this philosophy is true or not is not the point, but what we do know in mundane terms, is that what we think leads the way to what we manifest in the world. Choices and decisions lead to what happens in the world as cause and effect.
Mercury is very logical, left brained thinking. Mercury likes things to make sense and relay a message that people can understand. With Neptune, we are in a whole other sphere where imagination, emotions, and right brained creativity and fantasy takes precedence. Now, that these two are at odds, we can find that it’s not so easy to make sense of the world. This can be confusing for many, and at such times people are known to turn towards faith and spirituality to try to come to terms with facts and reality. Emotions can take over.
On the same day, Wednesday, Mercury and Mars are in harmony. This gives us more drive to make sense of life and to find purpose. It can be quite a philosophical week where many questions arise about what the meaning of life is. It can be difficult to find concrete, direct answers thanks to the Mercury-Neptune square but Mars reminds us that no matter what you think or feel, honesty, equality and fairness want to be known and acted upon.
As mentioned last week, Neptune stationed direct. Momentum is now building in the higher-minded thoughts and feelings. Compassion for life is asking for our attention in many ways. We can find ourselves being faced with experiences that wake us up to this need for a more loving, compassionate connection to the world and to all of life. When Neptune changes directions most of us feel it as a shift in our emotions.
All of this is accompanying our Full Moon in Gemini.
It’s officially a Full Moon in Gemini on Wednesday, November 25, 2015 at 5:44 p.m. ET.
We get to to see how far our way of seeing the world has come. This is colored by acknowledging the need for more compassion, and more love for life and the life (in all its forms) that exists in this world. With Neptune connecting with this Full Moon, it can be challenging to raise ourselves up to that level of consciousness as so many of us will be foggy brained. You could feel like you’re drowning in emotions and don’t have the answers in how the world has gotten to where it is or how to make the world a better place. It just may feel too complicated. Well it is. You certainly can’t take the issues of the entire world on your shoulders, but you can take small steps to bringing this energy of love and compassion into the world in your day to day life with those in your immediate circle.
All the answers to all your questions won’t show up, but trusting the process definitely helps. Neptune is mystical and Mercury is magical. The ancients believed that the power of thoughts and words were able to manifest change in our reality, and they were right. It all starts with a thought. That’s what gets the ball rolling towards what follows.
Because there is much magic involved with this Full Moon pay attention to synchronicities that show up in your life that point the way towards an improved way of seeing the world. Messages could show up as coinciding with number sequences that are too uncanny and coincidental to ignore. Deja vu is highly likely. If you’re feeling scatterbrained and all over the place, which is highly likely with Neptune in the mix with Mercury, try writing down your thoughts, ideas and philosophical perspectives. Writing has also been deemed a magical practice by ancient philosophers.
Allowing yourself to brainstorm and follow the stream of consciousness wherever it may take you can prove to be a valuable practice and experience now. A change of mind can literally change your life. Consequently, your new perspective can change the way you live your life and thus impact the lives of others. The butterfly effect takes on more meaning now. Thoughts are things. They affect reality. They affect how we experience reality, and they lead to choices and actions that affect the world around us.
This Full Moon in Gemini asks you to reflect on whether you've been using your time intelligently up to this point or not.
On Thursday, Saturn so close to this Full Moon also reaches out to Neptune. Saturn reminds us that time is valuable and it is meaningful. We each have a chance to use the time we have here to do something important, that has lasting consequences. This is a very karmic week. Take a look at how far you’ve come in your life. How much further do you want to go? What do you have to contribute? What do you have to share, give and create? If you don’t have a mission or a philosophy on life, this would be a great time to brainstorm. Is it aligned with compassion, love and making the world a better place for all? Neptune reminds us to put our egos aside and to focus on the bigger picture of reality. We are all here together, at this time, for a reason.
Forgetfulness is highly likely now as well. The most profound, life changing, life purpose ideas and concepts can show up out of the blue now but leave just as quickly like dissipating fog. So again, write down your ideas so you can expand on them and philosophize about them further. Write down the synchronicities that leave you most baffled and curious as to how undeniable the coincidences are.
This can be an evolutionary time for ourselves personally and globally. It is the emotional changes we are going through now that impact our frame of mind most, and thus our way forward. A change in the way you view the world, philosophically, culturally, spiritually and ideologically is the gift this Full Moon has the power to bring now.
Finally, at the end of the week the Sun squares Neptune in Pisces and meets Saturn in Sagittarius. This further emphasizes what’s mentioned above and sheds light on how important the time you have to live really is. You are here for a reason. Use your time well and let your soul shine through you, into the world.
For those of you who have addictions, whether it’s drugs, alcohol, food, video games, sex, television, cigarettes, or whatever it may be for you personally that has become a habitual form of escape from reality or being present, this is a great time to choose to let that go. Work with the power of your mind and imagination to make your life more magical and more meaningful. The Full Moon is on your side and it's meant to wake you up.
I hope you all have a wonderful, abundant week. Thank you for reading and sharing. I am so grateful for being a part of your routine. Enjoy the Horoscopes for each sign below. Namaste.

Weekly Astro-Tarot Horoscopes for each Sign - Insights and Advice for November 23 to 29, 2015:
Aries: Your presence matters. You are the first sign of the zodiac and declare, “I am.” You are the initiator. So who are you? What are you bringing into the world? You’re likely to feel love from another in a new light this week. It can suddenly dawn on you how much value you place in another or vice versa. Peace and harmony in your relationships can calm you. Talking about your views on life and the world this week can help you realize there is a master plan bigger than your own ideas. Overcoming the needs of your ego has a way of making more room for inventive, creative interactions. Your words have the power to light up a room, but if you find it difficult to find the right words, just listen.
Taurus: Irritations can subside this week to allow for more disciplined action. If you’ve been feeling ups and downs you’re not alone. The tide of emotions is changing for many. A change in your daily routine with a more spiritual perspective can help you feel good in your own skin. Something as simple as starting your day with a cup of tea to reflect is enough to inspire your creative best. Paying attention to your health and how you're honoring your body, eating right, and taking care of yourself is important for your balance and well being. Your work is also in focus. Ideas on how to be more prosperous are likely to arrive. Sharing your ideas can bring light bulb moments. You have more resources than you think and tapping into them, especially the resource of time is a great way to be at your best. If you don’t feel like strong emotional connection is happening this week with others, it’s likely that you need to change your own point of view.
Gemini: The Full Moon in Gemini this week feels particularly potent for you. Of course, it’s in your sign! Who have you become over the past 6 months? Hopefully you’ve accomplished some of your important goals you’ve had in mind, and if you haven’t, that’s ok. Life is a process. The key is to see your Full Moon as a signpost reminding you about fulfilling your mission. Standing right across the sky is Mercury (your ruling planet), the Sun and Saturn in Sagittarius. Career matters and ambitions may not be so clear right now, but they can remind you of how important communication and spending time in your relationships are. If you’re feeling at all disillusioned, reach out to others that care. Karmic bonds are likely to be made now.
Cancer: This Full Moon puts the spotlight on how you are living your day to day life in alignment with your higher self - that spiritual, soulful part of you that feels united to all things. The day to day grind of getting things done isn’t alway fun. In fact, it can feel downright heavy at times. You may be wondering what the mundane reality has to do with your spirit. Well, pretty much everything you do in this world plays a role in your growth. In every experience there is a lesson you have the opportunity to learn so you can live more fully and abundantly true to your calling. When you set your intentions on making your most mundane acts as magical as possible, you come out ahead. Using your talents in the service of others, takes you closer to your most visionary and artistic qualities. There is goodness in humanity, enjoy the dream.
Leo: You should feel right at home with this Full Moon. The Sun is in fellow fire sign Sagittarius and that helps bring out your creative potential. Saturn in Sagittarius can give you a heads up on the creative qualities you need to work on so you get better at expressing yourself more fully. Friends and colleagues can be your inspiration and help you think in innovative ways. Good chemistry can show up between you and another this week and point the way to resources you could benefit from. Joining forces and cooperating on an endeavor from a respectful, unselfish place can help bring a moment of clarity that benefits you for a long time to come.
Virgo: Your relationships, business, romantic and otherwise can be going through an emotional shift now and could impact your experience at home. Much of the discussions you’re having these days with family or those close could be about your career or ambitions in life. Details, facts and figures have a way of helping you out in life, but lately you may feel more confused than sure. The remedy will be to use your time wisely and focus. Whatever has been distracting you from reaching your goals needs to be put to the side for now so you can be sure you’re on track. To make sense of what you’re reaching towards and why, you’ll need some me-time. Past errors can be fixed, just give yourself some time to seek solutions.
Libra: We all have positive and negative qualities. It’s the yin and the yang of reality. You know how to balance these qualities and accept your humanity. There is an active and passive quality with you now. You may feel right at home in your own skin, but you still feel the urge to push forward to do something that has an impact. You are not likely to be very lazy lately, but instead want to make a difference. You can. Your personal philosophy on life is highlighted by the Full Moon this week. You will likely realize how much you’ve learned up to this point. Confidence in expressing yourself among the personalities of others and being true to you is important. But do be careful about holding strong convictions, as ruffling feathers goes against the grain. Standing up for your principles is important, you have a mission in life, but remember that others won’t always hold your values. You can master the balancing act communicating demands, and have a more profound impact by gauging who is more receptive or not.
Scorpio: You have nothing happening in your sign now, but that doesn’t mean nothing is happening in your life of course. The planets are still making shifts and dancing in different areas of your life. Money matters are highlighted for you this week, both in the work you do and the money you may have loaned or borrowed. If you have debt, this is a great time for you to take a closer look at it and make sure that the payments are being processed correctly. Did the money you borrow go to good use and work to your benefit? Taking stock of your finances and how secure you feel is important. If you’re spending too much at random on fun and entertainment and don’t know why your wallet is wearing thin, it’s time to reign it in a bit. Responsible money choices now gives you more power. Money is energy. It is a concept. The way you think about it and relate to it is important. The material and the spiritual are not diametrically opposed, they are interconnected. How you perceive and deal with money can be part of a spiritual perspective on life.
Sagittarius: There’s lots happening in your sign this week. The Sun, Mercury and Saturn in your sign are making themselves heard and reach out to the Full Moon as well. This could be a good reprieve for you, especially if you’ve felt the weight of Saturn on your shoulders. The Sun and Mercury pick up the pace and give you a switch in perspective. You likely won’t find all the answers thanks to Neptune, but there is cosmic support in flushing out what you don’t need and bringing in more creative, inspiring elements into your life. How you see yourself in relation to another or others is highlighted. Thinking more highly of others helps you to recognize your own value and can improve your esteem. Share with others your best thoughts and you’re likely to receive a useful, intelligent response. Gather facts from far and wide and enjoy the search for meaning. Confidence helps you find better solutions. Compromises can serve you well in the long run.
Capricorn: The Full Moon is a wake up call to your lifestyle, routine and habits. Capricorns are one of the most goal oriented signs of the zodiac. It’s the practical work that matters. It’s an excellent time to take a look at how far you’ve come in terms of getting your life organized in the way you want it so you can accomplish your goals. Are you doing satisfying work? Don’t beat yourself up for not getting everything on your to-do list done perfectly. Without flexibility, life can become tyrannical. Go easy on yourself but acknowledge what is working and what’s not. It’s likely that you’re at a crossroads spiritually and the desire for escapism is possible. A better choice is to talk about the issues you want to work through and give yourself a plan of action. You have the power to take your thinking in an all new direction. Focus on the skills you want to shine.
Aquarius: What’s next? Well the simple answer is the future. The more complicated answers and the specifics unveil themselves in time. It is time that is of the essence in life. We only get so much time to work with in this lifetime. This Full Moon is about enjoying living your life. If you haven’t been enjoying your life you can certainly change your mind. The power of the Full Moon is that it wakes us up to how far we’ve come, and thus, how far we haven’t. This Full Moon is about you expressing yourself, sharing yourself, and enjoying the creative process of life. Have you been doing that? Social status really doesn’t matter when it comes to enjoying life. Enjoyment comes from within you. It is the joy you share and give that matters. Though you may be feeling emotional and sensitive these days, the point is to remind you that enjoying life while you can, and helping others enjoy there’s, really is what matters. No matter what your differences of opinion or philosophy on life, bring it back to joy and you’ll be in the best company.
Pisces: Neptune in your sign is a long journey, one where you learn a lot about yourself in profoundly personal ways. This week Neptune is reaching out to your career sector and having you feel your way through the goals that matter most. Neptune is such an ethereal force that information can get lost. Misunderstandings can arise this week that remind you of the need to make more thorough and responsible choices. It is the challenges that we face when we are climbing the mountain that teach us the most. If you have miscommunications this week, bringing your compassionate side forward, to others and yourself, helps make life feel a bit smoother. If you’ve had any issues with family or those close, it could come up with this Full Moon to be worked through. Bringing serenity to your communications helps give you better energy to work with. Where you’re going in life is best supported by turning your emotions towards the light.
