Weekly Horoscopes for each Sign are listed below after the overview:
Right before this week began, Neptune stationed Direct in Pisces on Saturday, November 19, 2016 at 11:38 pm EST.
This indicates a reality check, a shift of karma and a change in our spiritual, cosmic understanding of the universe from a standpoint of higher consciousness. What we believe in and put our faith in is changing. As more is revealed, and secrets are unveiled, the truth will wake us up.
Love leads the way, as Venus connects with Neptune a few hours before Neptune stations direct on Saturday. I talk more about Neptune stationing direct in Pisces in the weekend horoscope here and in last week's horoscope here.
Before Neptune was discovered, Jupiter was the planet most associated with Pisces. Jupiter is the ancient ruling planet of Pisces.
Jupiter is a strong focus this week, which I talk a lot more about below...
The Sun enters Sagittarius on Monday, November 21, 2016 at 4:22 pm EST. This brings attention to Jupiter as well, as Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius.
As you’ve probably noticed for the past couple of months I’ve been talking about Jupiter in Libra as indicating a growing focus on the media and bias in journalism, and particularly the search for truth.
What really is the truth? To know the truth we must look at all sides of issues. We see in the media where strong bias has been creating a lot of problems, and Jupiter is acting like a wide angle lens for much to come out in the open and many questions to be asked.
A quick look at bias with the thesaurus and we get a list of terms: favoritism, inclination, intolerance, leaning, preference, prejudice, bigotry, narrow mindedness, one-sidedness, tendency, tilt, unfairness, disposition, chauvinism, preconception, predisposition, spin, viewpoint... sound familiar? These are all subjects that are getting a lot more of our focus these days.
Since Jupiter has been in a tough position to Pluto in Capricorn, politics and propaganda in the media is also a big focus. Haven’t you noticed?
It is important to question where you are getting your information from and what bias does that particularly outlet have a vested interest in promoting.
Trust can only be gained through demonstration of being trustworthy time and again. Many people were wrong in their prediction or assumption of the recent election, including the most seemingly confident of astrologers, tarot readers and psychics. The question is, how is that possible unless personal bias was heavily involved in skewing the information in the direction of personal preference? Such cases naturally bring the question of trust, faith and belief in what others have to say. Of course, hindsight is 20/20, so now we see many backtracking in one way or another to excuse and cover errors.
When personal bias clouds information, especially when it’s intentional, it creates a disservice, because it is not the truth that is in focus, it is not neutrality, it is an intended point of view that is propagated for an intended effect. Unfortunately, on the same side of that coin of untruths, are lies - the furthest from the truth one can get.
I remember someone in business told me little white lies are okay. But, as my mother has taught me well, no lies are okay.
Difficulty in trusting information is becoming the norm and so the source of information is being put into question. Many are having difficulty knowing who to believe now. Just who is really telling the truth, who isn’t and why not?
Marketing also comes in the fold with Jupiter in Libra. Marketing after all is a means of swaying opinion to make the sale and rake in the money from the trusting, sometimes gullible, customer. Just because someone puts on a smile and is good at convincing you to believe what they are saying, it doesn’t mean they are really telling you the truth. In fact, it is the sneaky salesmen that usually have the most calculated marketing tactics and agendas, with the bottom line being big bucks in their pocket.
Since Mercury and the Sun had been in Scorpio over the past month deeper inquiry and questioning had been indicated, with the archetypal sleuth/detective in focus. The detective and investigative journalist sees through lies, asks lots of questions, and wants to discover what’s really true.
Now Mercury and the Sun will be in Sagittarius this week. More focus on journalism, the integrity of information and those who are sharing it are sure to be in focus.
Naturally, we’re’ seeing more distrust in the media on all sides, as biased opinions become an area of greater focus and exploration. Again, when bias is involved, we don’t get the whole truth, we get a version of reality that is intentionally decided to be propagated.
Now, we’re seeing stories about “fake news” in the media being an issue in social media. However, the slippery slope is if large corporations that have sway in propagating information are going to start pushing to suppress what people share, we need to consider just how far away are we from entering a future realm of censorship?
These are the types of considerations that a Jupiter in Libra will bring about as we seek balance, truth and equality, especially as Jupiter is in tough position to Pluto in Capricorn, which I speak more of below.
As mentioned, Mercury, the ruler of communication and the media is now in Sagittarius.
Mercury connects with Jupiter on Tuesday, then Mercury conjuncts Saturn in Sagittarius on Wednesday.
This indicates further discussion on what is true, fair, biased, right and wrong. How the voices of people, groups and cultures on all sides are being socially suppressed is up for consideration. An open dialogue is difficult, but to understand the truth, more discussions are required. Suppressing voices on any side of issues, only creates blockages.
We also have to look at ourselves. Which side of a story do we side on, and why? How does our own bias disconnect us from seeing the whole picture?
The big question is in how to get correct information. What is truly objective? Is all information simply subjective?
Jupiter is in difficult aspect to Pluto in Capricorn on Thursday, November 24, 2016. Indicating more focus on the power structure of leaders, governments, authority figures and corporations have over communications and media. What is true? What is fair? What is right and wrong? How are those at the top that call the shots in society emphasizing an imbalance.
What is the story that is being told that leads to what the majority believes? Who is swaying public opinion? What is their larger objective in the grand scheme of things?
These are all things I’ve been discussing in the horoscopes the past couple of months, and it is becoming more obviously manifested in our collective consciousness.
What we are learning is that better critical thinking is required of each of us. If we don’t consider more sides of issues, we risk simply falling for the story line being told to us. If others are doing the thinking and deciding for us, we risk slipping into a world that is being shaped for us, rather than by us.
Venus meets Pluto in Capricorn and connects in difficult aspect to Jupiter on Friday, November 25, 2016. Money matters are of course going through a transformative time as well. The economy will increasingly become an area of focus.
With Jupiter we get the big picture, and Pluto in Capricorn politics take center stage. On a more personal level, this can be a turning point for careers. Are you doing what you love? Does your life feel out of balance? How can you look at the long term goals and start to create changes so you get away from the difficulties and move towards balance? Take some time to consider what changes you want in your heart. Accepting the truth can be challenging, but eventually it can set you free.
As mentioned last week, with The Full Moon in Taurus and Venus in Capricorn, valuing and appreciation the physical world, nature and our bodies are an important focus now as well.
Mercury and Uranus are in positive connection on Saturday, November 26, 2016. We are all going through a personal transformation. Who we understand ourselves to be, and how we interact with the world is changing.
Overcoming perceived limitations earlier in the week can be the stepping stone towards personal power later in the week. Positive affirmations about self worth can lead you to a deeper understanding of yourself leading to more freedom.
If you are an entrepreneur, or beginning any project, make sure that it is something you really want to do and that it is aligned with your philosophy on life. Be true to yourself.
And remember, with Neptune now direct in Pisces, it's time for a new direction in living your higher truth.

Thank you so much for sharing this site with your friends online. I'd love to reach a wider audience. Thank you for your help.
Aries: Taking charge of your social life is a good way to feel empowered. Having something to look forward to in the future can make your life feel more exciting and give you a boost of vitality. Exposing yourself to a wider variety of people and cultures can change your perceptions of the world and yourself. Discovering where you are closed minded can help you make a great leap towards a larger, happier point of view. Think about the broader vision you have for your life this week.
Taurus: What you want to manifest and create in life is good place to focus this week. How will you have to change your lifestyle? How can you take a leadership role in reaching for your dreams? Inadequacies and inefficiencies in your day to day lifestyle routine can be your wake up call to getting yourself on track. You won’t be able to get from point A to point B without thinking bigger. If you know you’ve been holding yourself back, it’s time to take charge and get unstuck. To change your life, you need to be willing to change what you’re aiming for. Whenever Venus is in an earth sign, it's a good time to tap into your creative roots to reach your goals. Letting go of something by the end of the week can transform your life.
Gemini: Connecting with people that are creative will expand your worldview. Enjoying a wide variety and keeping yourself open to new ideas will serve you well. Try to look at all sides of situations before you make your final decision. If people in your social circle are changing, it could change you, in a good way. Decide who you want to relate to most and you can step away from limitations and toward greater freedom. If you’re the creative type, try not to overspend on supplies as what you want to manifest may change.
Cancer: Relationships can change in a heartbeat. If you have control or power issues, they may surface this week and create a shift in the dynamic. But, if you focus on enjoying the pleasures of life, sharing, loving and giving, you can manifest good changes. If there is tension between family and a love interest, try not to blow things out of proportion. Look at all sides of the issues to be fair. Putting energy toward paying off debt can give you a better sense of security and more excitement for the future.
Leo: If you want to relax and someone else is full of energy, you may need to find your own space to get the rest you’d like on Sunday. Accessing your creativity and expressing yourself as the week begins should feel enlivening. Laughter and entertainment are a great way for you to lift your spirit and give your personality a nice boost of energy. Wherever you have inhibitions to expressing yourself, you will become acutely aware of them. In conversations, be open to more ideas to expand your mind, and don’t allow opinions of other dictate how you live your life. Overcoming what holds you back will lead to a winning personality that shines.
Virgo: A home based business can work out well for you to expand your income, but you’ll need to take a look at how your location and habits in the home environment can hold you back. If you’re looking for a loan, or getting a mortgage, how you think about yourself inside will create an impression with lenders. Travel can give you a perspective on where you’d want to live in the world and may feel like a new beginning and a new identity. Your place in the world is in focus this week. Explore your options and be honest about your limitations. An objective look at where you stand will help you make best decisions.
Libra: People are always changing, and family dynamics can change in a heartbeat. Leadership, power roles and ego can impact your feelings this week. Working on yourself is priority now, so if family issues get in the way, you may need to consider where you stand and what you want. The question is, “Who am I and who do I want to be?” If money is the issue, take a wider look at your options to create the stability you want.
Scorpio: Your work and financial situation could use your attention this week. The way you think about yourself impacts how you can manifest the life you want. If you focus on your limitations and what you are lacking, you are going to have to get over that hurdle and step into a grander way of thinking. It could take time, but what you learn this week, can give you a new perspective that aligns you with higher consciousness. Discussions about love and money have great impact on you now and can change your goals and priorities.
Sagittarius: Your frame of mind can have its ups and downs this week, but if you accept your personal power and your truth, and you surround yourself with supportive people, you could glow bright. Though self doubt is a long term trend for you, sometimes the light comes on and reminds you of how your faults are blessings in disguise. As the week progresses and you overcome inhibitions that may feel like a burden, a shift in your personality can give you an internal sense of freedom. Be creative and work through your limitations and you will come out a winner.
Capricorn: Self love has the power to transform life in endless ways. It is your self worth that is in focus this week. When you love yourself life feels more magnetic. If you’re having trouble in career and don’t feel like you’re being treated fairly you could have a transformative breakthrough that takes back your personal power and esteem. Maybe you just need a bigger and better career and now you’re ready to realize you’re worth it. Take note of your most potent dreams and daydreams this week. You could make your fantasies a reality if you set your mind to it.
Aquarius: Talking about issues in your social life will help you realize what is worth your energy and what is not. If you’ve been feeling like you don’t have the right people in your corner, take a closer look at that so you can identify the types you want to connect with most. Smart individuals with the ability to see beyond limits are your best allies now. Choose those that shine bright, have lots of energy and aim high. What you believe you can manifest requires that you have a change of heart this week. Exercise that requires stamina is a good route to boosting an empowered mindset.
Pisces: Neptune is now going direct in your sign. A less introverted approach to life will do you well. All that you have discovered about yourself would do well to be shared by example. Your empathy, compassion and understanding of the world from a place of higher consciousness can impact reality. Be the change you’d like to see in the world. If you are rethinking your career lately, perhaps you’d like a larger salary, you may have to ask to get what you want. Speaking up will serve you better than staying silent when it comes to getting what you feel you deserve. Your social life transforms when you put your heart into it.
I am so glad you enjoy these horoscopes. My hope is that you find them useful for your life.
