圣诞的party季可能在今年要来得早一些。这周我们都在海王星打滑的紧握里，所以费不了多大劲就会庆祝过多，由于耐耗性的原因最终收场时甚至会更糟一些。有点狂欢过度是一回事－ 一粒止痛药及一晚上的好睡眠就能解决问题 －但是倘若轻信并非看上去如此的情境的话，其全然不同的本质所产生的后果可就让人痛苦了。

如果事情没有进展，避免草率得出结论。 可能有一个完全正当的理由，为什么有人以奇怪的方式行动，或者某事发生了意想不到的转变，如果你变得有攻击性，情况可能会恶化十倍。 显然，你不能盲目地只看到一个红旗，就进入完全战斗模式，这不是必要的。

The Week Ahead
28th Nov 2016 - 4th Dec 2016
As soon as December comes in the count-down to Christmas intensifies. The cities of the world switch on their Christmas lights, the stores and high streets team with frenzied shoppers and the party crowd is out in force. It should be a happy time, but it is hard to forget the desperate plight so much of the world is in.This week’s influences seem to emphasize that dichotomy - Mars and Jupiter are generating good fortune and good times while Uranus and Neptune are creating turbulence.
My “hellos” for the past few weeks have focussed on how best to deal with disappointments and hard times because we all have them, no matter how rich we are in real or figurative terms.
So, if you are reading this and feeling the world and his wife are against you, continue to remind yourself that it won’t always be this way.Enjoy your good fortune and suffer your distress. In time all things change.
＊＊＊The Week Ahead for Aries ＊＊＊
Hold that thought.
Changing your mind is your prerogative, but please be careful of making a snap decision that would reverse a previous decision. It may turn out that your instincts are correct but there is an equal chance you are basing your actions on a false impression. Neptune, the deceiver, is in the mix blinding you to a reality or two and causing you to doubt your convictions.
Neptune isn’t all bad, of course, and if you’re newly in love or pursuing activities and interests that take you out of yourself, enjoy the experience to the max. Life is full of responsibilities and realities so time spent in la-la land has its values. Just don’t fool yourself that you’re there to stay.
＊＊＊The Week Ahead for Taurus＊＊＊
Impulse actions may cost you. On the one hand, making a purchase without due thought could turn out to be an expensive mistake and, on the other, being pressured into committing yourself to a long-tem financial plan may prove unwise and costly. This is not to say you shouldn’t buy anything this week or sign an agreement that has been in the pipeline for a while, but it does mean that you should thoroughly examine an investment.
False dawns are often a product of such influences. In week or so this trend will fade so if you can place something on hold for a short while why not do so.
＊＊＊The Week Ahead for Gemini＊＊＊
A sprinkling of fairy dust.
A new moon in the area of relating ushers in a new season for love and relationships. From now until New Year you can meet people who will open up your life horizons and certainly wake up your ideas. And if you’re ready to turn a love affair into a long-term commitment the timing couldn’t be better. The problem with making finite decisions this week, however, is that Neptune is in the mix and although this planet gives us some of our greatest spiritual experiences is can also prevent us from seeing an important reality.
Allow your heart to open and the magic to happen but keep your feet on the ground when it comes to anything of a material nature.
＊＊＊The Week Ahead for Cancer＊＊＊
Sudden and unexpected.
The Christmas party season could be starting a little early this year. Neptune has us all in its slippery grip this week, so it won’t take much to overdo the celebrating and end up a little worse for wear. A bit too much good living is one thing - a painkiller and a good night’s sleep will fix the problem - but buying into a situation that is not quite what it seems could have painful consequences of an altogether different nature.
Love and relationships could be subject to the sudden and the unexpected whether you are bowled over by someone new or events impact a long-term union raising the prospect of the end of a beautiful friendship.
＊＊＊The Week Ahead for Leo＊＊＊
An edit but not a complete re-write.
Of all the fire signs you tend to be the most prudent and resistant to change, and your innate caution could stand you in good stead this week. Should changes already be in motion then the astrology is simply underwriting them and urging you to go with the flow, but if a situation arises that trips your fight-or-flee mechanism, avoid making a knee-jerk response.
You may only need a couple of hours to rethink your strategy but that could be just enough time to prevent you from making a mistake. When Neptune is in pride of place misunderstandings and disinformation are par for the course. Someone may be sending mixed messages or you have got the wrong end of the stick.
＊＊＊The Week Ahead for Virgo＊＊＊
Appearances are deceptive.
Just when you think you’ve got a handle on Neptune, this planet performs another magic trick leaving you spell-bound. What you see is not what you get, whether you’re making purchases or investing time and your heart in someone or something you believe in. It may be that you are receiving the truth and the whole truth, it may be that a certain decision is the right one, but even the discerning Virgo could be vulnerable to believing what you want to believe at this time.
So, take your time. Home, family and property matters are in the frame and in the event that someone changes his or her mind or something fails to come through, do not panic. The situation has room to change.
＊＊＊The Week Ahead for Libra＊＊＊
Not on the agenda.
Expect some amendments to the agenda, whether you re-think your plans or circumstances and other people change them for you. Libra is one of the most unflappable signs of the zodiac but on this occasion you may need to remind yourself that there have been times in the past when things changed without your say-so and the outcome was a great improvement on the original.
Arguments could spring up out of nowhere and people you normally bank on could let you down, so do your level best to forgive and forget. And if this sounds like a week you already want to forget, hold the phone, there is just a sprinkling of sugary magic to help the medicine go down.
＊＊＊The Week Ahead for Scorpio＊＊＊
Turn the other cheek.
If things are not adding up, avoid leaping to conclusions. There may be a perfectly good reason why someone is acting in a strange way or something has taken an unexpected turn, and if you get confrontational you could make a situation ten times worse. Clearly, you cannot turn a blind eye to a red flag, but going into full battle mode may not be strictly necessary.
Many people are dealing with the unexpected at the moment, which is why you may be left dangling and disturbed. Indeed, a patient and giving attitude when presented with the unwelcome and inconvenient could put you in very good odour with certain people.
＊＊＊The Week Ahead for Sagittarius＊＊＊
Rowing your way out of the weeds.
Recognizing you are in the weeds is the beginning of clarity. And this week could mark the point at which you realize you are digging yourself even deeper into the mire. Often accused of being unfocussed and lacking commitment it may be that you have done your absolute best to remain true to your intentions even though the going has been largely discouraging.
The best solution could be to cut your losses before you incur further drains on your physical, emotional or financial resources. Helping you row your way out of the weeds is bountiful Jupiter, whether you experience a sudden stroke of good fortune or your actions meet with success and certainly relief.
＊＊＊The Week Ahead for Capricorn＊＊＊
Avoid making too much of a minor change or a communication hiccup. While you may not want to overlook a serious anomaly fussing and fretting over a small incident will not only dampen your spirits but could prevent you from otherwise making good progress. Plus, if your attention is solely focussed on something you cannot immediately resolve, your concentration will suffer and mistakes will be made.
And with Venus hooked up to Uranus computer glitches and mechanical break-downs can easily happen. If you press the delete button, please ensure you have back-up - and we’re not just talking technology here.
＊＊＊The Week Ahead for Aquarius＊＊＊
Back off for now.
Mars is roughly half-way through your sign so already you may have experienced a success with one or more of your endeavours. However, if these past few weeks have appeared to produce one conflict after another, it is time to change your strategy. Someone appears to have misunderstood the situation or is operating on incorrect information - and that someone could be you.
Retrace your steps and make sure that you received all the information you required and that you acted in the appropriate fashion. If this does not reveal an error it may be that the timing is off. Whatever the case, this is not the week to go on the attack. Wait and see what the weekend brings in terms of resolution.
＊＊＊The Week Ahead for Pisces＊＊＊
A new moon on your Mid-heaven begins a fresh phase for your aspirations in general and career in particular. A new job is on the horizon for some Pisceans, a promotion for others and in a few cases a change of course could come about in a strange and surprising way. Be mindful of the comments you make to people in positions of authority and take note of any rumours.
Rumours may prove unfounded but it is always a good idea to run through a few plan Bs in case they turn out to be true. Romance is also to the fore and a love affair begun at this time could prove life-changing, although not necessarily long-lasting.
