ASTROLOGY FOR WEEK BEGINNING NOVEMBER 20, 2003

By Alice Price

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) Friends are full of ideas and advice. Do not listen to them. Work out your own solutions. Avoid both over-optimism and the urge to splurge and you will be all right. All is not sweetness and light on the home front because someone has some really wacky ideas they are trying to put across. A good friend helps you put a popular idea across. A child is acting strangely and needs attention. Some restriction is put on vacation plans.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) Somebody is ready to party and the stars say it is you. You and a partner are gradually coming to a meeting of the minds. Youíre very much inclined to concentrate on a special someone. Good luck is with you now. But at the same time you have to resist overdoing and overspending. Take time and think before you wear yourself out or buy what you donít need. You may experience the recurrence of a former ailment. Otherwise, health looks good.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) If you can, avoid dealings involving money. Either someone tries to cheat you, or you do not understand what is going on around you. Wait until you know exactly where you stand before acting on any deal, no matter how profitable it looks for you. Be sure what you say is understood by others. Do not tell others your plans. Good luck is yours if you keep your mouth shut. You can have an extra lively social life combined with travel

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) It is too late for goblins and ghosts but they will surely get you if you try to deal underhandedly. Putting on a mask wonít help you, either. Be upright and honest at all times and you will sleep better. You would like to make a commitment to someone but they donít really share your important views. Partnership financial situations fare well. If you donít have any, start looking for one. Give health issues immediate attention.

PISCES (Feb. 20 to March 20) You are stronger than you think whether the situation is a physical or mental or emotional one. Do not let it get you down. "Speak softly and carry a big stick" is good advice for you now. Whatever battles you fight, you will win. You can make money if you have a strong grasp of the market. Your potential for a happy relationship is outstanding. Never mind why you think "it canít be". Just trust in "believeóreceive".

ARIES (March 21 to April 20) The Sun moves into Sagittarius at mid-week joining Mercury, Venus and Pluto. Guaranteeing the start of holiday fun and/or travel for you. All but Pluto move fast, so take advantage of invitations and parties immediately. Firmly avoid arguments over money this week. Jupiter in your house of work and health will be a plus for your overall state of mind and well-being. Of course overindulgence is a possibility so curb your appetites.

TAURUS (April 21 to May 21) Lots of love and marriage potential is in the stars for unattached Taurus. A relationship that has been moving along at a snailís pace may suddenly come to life. Or someone new could sweep you off your feet. Be careful about quarreling with someone you deeply love as a separation that occurs now will be permanent. There is a lot of stress where money is concerned. Be very alert to problems concerning joint funds or a business partnership.

GEMINI (May 22 to June 21) You are just full of ideas on how to bring it about if you are in a marrying mood. Avoid over-optimism or taking someoneís love for granted. A continuing emphasis on joint funds can relate to marital or partnership resources. Creative work, yours or anotherís, will be well- received. Vitality, energy and resistance to illness are high. Guard against excesses or taking any needless risks with your health or safety. Begin a program to improve your health,

CANCER (June 22 to July 23) On going relationships continue as usual. If you are unattached you may meet a new person and/or make arrangements for a residential move and feather a new nest. Joint funds are also accented, and there is potential for advancement in your job and getting a raise, too. Be on guard against eating favorite Ďnot good for youí foods, Be extra cautious in travel. After the 22nd you will be upbeat and energetic as a reward for diet and exercise in the recent past.

LEO (July 24 to Aug. 22) As usual, your dominant thoughts are on love, romance, children, creativity and glamour. Any partnership action is subject to responsibility and permanence, however. That is better than flitting from romance to romance. Financial prospects depend on your own efforts, study and hard work and advertising. These will be rewarded. The money is there, work for it. Take extra precautions in health matters. Avoid anger and worry.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 23) Look in your own neighborhood or friends of your family for developments that are romantically interesting. Home is truly where the heart is these days. Avoid sudden financial decisions and donít honor "lucky feelings" as they are worthless just now. As long as you take care of yourself and follow the rules your health will be good. Do nothing to rock the health boat and stick to routine. And guard against impulsiveness and over indulgence.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) Keep up with your correspondence this week if you want to have a happy week. Others are waiting to hear from you before telling their good news or issuing invitations. Your guardian angel remains in the background. Take care of money matters before Saturday as the emphasis will be on travel and communication after that. Do not be too quick to commit yourself to any financial obligation. Be on guard against addiction. Good week for a health exam.
