General Horoscope for November 25, 2018
Working harder might not be the smartest way to reach our goals today because the more we push, the more resistance we encounter. The reflective Moon sinks into cautious Cancer at 1:37 am EST, tempting us to retreat from external conflict. However, her smooth trine with energetic Mars indicates there is a balance point where we can gain momentum if we move slowly at first. Gradual progress, even if it’s hard to measure, is better than none.
Aries Horoscope — March 21 to April 19
You can’t figure out whether you feel more comfortable at home or on the job, especially if family responsibilities demand your attention today. Although you might experience cabin fever, thoughts of returning to work leave you feeling restless and uninspired. You need a dramatic change to your surroundings now. Search for fresh art work or new ornaments to decorate your office or house. If this beautification project doesn’t ease the tension, use the standoff between the sensitive Moon and indifferent Saturn to plan a vacation with a spiritual bent. Finding a place of peace starts within your heart.
Taurus Horoscope — April 20 to May 20
You might be confronted with the disconcerting experience of recognizing how little you know about something today. This realization often rears its head when you learn a skill or subject more on your own than in a formal manner. You end up learning as you go along, making rookie mistakes that slow your progress. Unfortunately, you may not grasp how much knowledge you still must acquire. Maybe someone who is more astute on the topic crustily puts you down. But a bruised ego can rebound with humility and a resolve to grow smarter and stronger. Consciously choose to be on a path to transformation.
Gemini Horoscope — May 21 to June 20
You may be fretting too much about your finances now. The greatest challenge with money is how your net worth has a hold on your self-esteem. However, the celestial civil war between the nurturing Cancer Moon and miserly Saturn in Capricorn could play out in your heart. Although you’re keenly aware of your blessings, you crave more if you become overly concerned with what a colleague or neighbor owns. Every person has his or her own journey, with or without riches. Instead of longing for something different, create the life you want. Theodore Roosevelt said, “Comparison is the thief of joy.”
Cancer Horoscope — June 21 to July 22
Achieving the kind of intimacy you desire could be a struggle now. Perhaps you want a longer hug from your children before they run off, or a little more snuggle time with your partner. However, there’s a solid chance that you can find the affection you seek from someone who loves you, if you’re willing to ask. The Cancer Moon’s delightful trine with Mars and Neptune indicates that a visit to a museum, theatre, or your favorite restaurant will take your mind off your troubles and offer the solace you need. Giving away what you want the most often brings it back to you.
Leo Horoscope — July 23 to Aug. 22
Although nothing seems to be good enough today, including your efforts, it’s just not true. It doesn’t necessarily matter who is playing the role of the tough critic. But it certainly hurts more if someone with authority delivers withering disapproval of you or your work. Unfortunately, you’re still prone to be insecure now, even if no one dispatches a harsh edict. Of course, there’s always room for improvement. But when standards are set too high, it’s more reflective of a profound self-doubt rather than a certain truth. Starting from a place of compassion immediately changes the dynamics.
Virgo Horoscope — Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
It might be up to you to play the disciplinarian with your colleagues or friends. It’s never an enviable role to be the person who always must stick to the rules or enforce them. Unfortunately, you could be accused of not knowing how to have fun today, but the criticism you receive isn’t likely to be fair. Chances are, you’re doing the right thing, and others secretly admire your conviction and courage. Standing up for principle instead of surrendering to peer pressure demonstrates your moral authority.
Libra Horoscope — Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
You may need to pull rank with a family member before someone does it first to you. Perhaps you believe you must assume the mantle of older sibling to a younger one who needs unsolicited advice. On the other hand, maybe an elder feels compelled to have a serious talk with you about your lifestyle choices. Instead of reacting defensively, navigate with respect for authority. Considering how your approach or reproach looks from the other person’s perspective prevents close bonds from fraying. Walk a mile in another’s shoes and you will see the world differently.
Scorpio Horoscope — Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
Honoring the current circumstances teaches you many valuable lessons now. Unfortunately, one of the biggest mistakes you can make is believing that how you feel in any one moment is permanent. The tough opposition between the mushy Cancer Moon and somber Saturn highlights serious feelings or memories. Nevertheless, like trees, the power of now roots deep into the past while also branching out toward the future. Choose where to focus your attention and grow in that direction.
Sagittarius Horoscope — Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
Thinking about what you don’t have reflects a certain lack of gratitude and is also a recipe for putting yourself in a foul mood. The stare-down opposition between the reactive Moon and stoic Saturn in your 2nd House of Resources suggests that money — or the scarcity of it — is defining too much of your self-worth. Gather your thoughts and remember what keeps you full. Norman Vince Peale wrote, “Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that.”
Capricorn Horoscope — Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
Deciding whether you want to be alone or with others is tricky today. It’s not that you’re suddenly turning into a misanthrope; it’s just that the face-off between the watery Cancer Moon and dry Saturn in your sign heightens your search for secure land amidst your own stormy feelings. You’re already apprehensive around people who are very emotional, and you don’t need to have a party of two or more drowning in a sea of misery. Instead, reach out to one of your more surefooted friends for comfort rather than spending the day moping in solitude.
Aquarius Horoscope — Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
You have more control over current circumstances than you realize, no matter how overwhelmed you may feel today. The likely way to stay afloat while a heavy Saturn’s opposition weighs down the emotional Cancer Moon is to swim straight to the shores of productivity. You can build self-confidence by using short strokes instead of long ones to get across the pond. Making choices that allow you to see small results motivates you to keep moving toward your target. Focusing your vision on the land right in front of you enables you to reach your destination in record time.
Pisces Horoscope — Feb. 19 to March 20
No one person can be down for everything you enjoy and want to do. Sometimes you must go it alone or find another more willing accomplice. Unfortunately, you might have a tiff with a friend because you’re at cross-purposes over pursuing a particular activity. You may be inclined to cajole, guilt-trip or manipulate him or her into capitulation. However, the deeper issue isn’t about someone else’s reluctance; it’s about you. Don’t let anyone else’s judgments drag you down. Madonna said, “Poor is the man whose pleasure depends on the permission of another.”
