The natural ruler of Sagittarius is Jupiter, which offers anyone born this week, who is looking to grow spiritually, mentally and sometimes physically, the opportunity to do just that.
This fire sign always tries to see the bright side of life and love. Sagittarius is a talker and a born entertainer. Sagittarius is usually able to start a conversation on any subject under the rainbow. They enjoy politics and certainly need plenty of space to live and be free.
Sagittarius is usually upbeat with a fine sense of humor and a love of the outdoors. Many athletes are born under this sign and will stay in sports well into their golden years.
If you want a person born this week in your life, give them plenty of space and never try to control them. That could end any chance of a longtime relationship if you try to keep them tied to you.
People born this week are: Howie Mandel, Nov. 29, 1955; Clay Aiken, Nov. 30, 1978; Bette Midler, Dec. 1, 1945; Lucy Liu, Dec. 2, 1968; Julianne Moore, Dec. 3, 1960; Jeff Bridges, Dec. 4, 1949; Walt Disney, Dec. 5, 1901; and Dave Brubeck, Dec. 6, 1920.
There is a new moon in Sagittarius on Monday, Dec. 2. That gives us a great day to start thinking seriously about holiday shopping. Since both the sun and moon are in Sagittarius on Monday, start making shopping lists and schedule a big shopping day on Friday, Dec. 6, before dark and you will get plenty done. The best day this week is naturally Friday. Next full moon is on Tuesday, Dec. 17. Everyone will be looking for a party around that time.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) This is a good week to start dealing with any anger issues you may have. Otherwise, you will find yourself in arguments, since Mars is entering Libra on Dec. 6 and it will cause plenty of action in your life. It will not be dull. So, if you have anger, you have not handled it and you have from now until mid-July to deal with it and the accompanying problems.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Your patience may be tried right now, but if you handle your life calmly, everything will turn out in your favor. You are the one to empower yourself to obtain exactly what it is you want. So move yourself in the right direction and your daydreams will start coming true. Otherwise the minor frustrations will continue.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) You have some new goals and if you continue to work toward them as you have in the past, look for success. A new friend could become more than a friend if that is what you want. Just check the relationship out before it gets too serious. You will be glad you did. A good friend could need your help. Find out.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) It is time to really appreciate your good fortune now. After all, Jupiter, the planet of good luck and expansion, will be in Cancer until mid-July. This gives you plenty of time to reorganize your agenda. So, get started and don’t take on more than you can do. Pals are willing to help you with any challenge you face.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) No matter what might be happening to you now, it is time to understand that this too shall pass. This is no time to get caught up in the problems facing you. It is time to find an answer and work toward it. A new relationship will develop into a BFF if you allow it. Try to relax and let good things happen to you now.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) You may realize that all work and no play is not what you really want. It is time to let new people enter your life and enjoy the entertainment. But as you are enjoying this lifestyle, remember your life actually requires plenty of work and responsibility. It may be time for a longtime pal to leave your social circle. Think about it.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) Mars, the planet of unlimited action, is about to enter your life and remain until mid-July. That means you need to get your life together and face some issues you may have been ignoring. It might be wise to discover exactly why you are holding on to anger and get rid of it fast. Eliminate negative people and it will help you.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) If life is calm and cool now, you are one lucky Scorpio. With Saturn floating around you may feel some stress and tension. If that is the case, reorganize your schedule and ignore the negative folks in your life. You need a strong positive influence this week. So avoid settling for any less by considering a new social circle.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) It might be time to understand your deep need to be in charge of yourself – and that is in your best interest. But remember, when we want freedom, we need to give it to others. Celebrate your birthday by letting yourself develop a new agenda that includes more space for you alone.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) With Mars about to move into Libra, you would be wise to expect excitement. With that in mind, look at your life and whatever is not working in your favor and consider a change. Otherwise, you are going to be challenged until mid-July. All you need is what comes natural – discipline.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) Life is blooming if you are making a move or two toward a new goal. Remember, you are a fixed sign and so it is mighty hard to make any change. But after the success of last week, you will be happy with whatever adjustments you make. Starting at the end of the week Mars will be making great aspects to your sun sign.
Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) Your creative life and love life could be improving tenfold. If it is not, then try a new approach to relationships and it will work. A single phone call next week could make you think change and force plenty of progress. So if you meet new folks, make sure to collect their names and numbers. You will be glad you did.
