Up, up, up the ladder you go. This Wednesday, the energizing Sun lends its beams to Sagittarius and your tenth house of career. Your ambitions will be supersized during this monthlong phase, pushing you towards unprecedented professional growth. While everyone else is heading over the meadow and through the woods youll be burning some midnight oil, perhaps utilizing the long weekend to pull ahead on an outsized mission. (But no BBM-ing your boss while the turkey is being served, please.) Your meteoric rise is a long time coming, so revel in the recognition thats heading your way. No need to wait for the talent scouts and executive recruiters to come sniffing for you, although they might just. Draft a press release, light up the Twitterverse with a 140-character buzz, host a launch party or focus group. Getting the word out yourself gives you control over image and message, an added bonus. If your career feels stalled at the gates, harness the gambling instincts of the Sagittarius Sun and make a bold, proactive move. Sign on for a one-day-per-week volunteer apprenticeship with a prominent industry player, enroll in a training seminar, cold-call a potential dream client, or request an official performance review to draw the bigwigs attention to your accomplishments. Note that Mercury will still be retrograde until November 26, so this week is more about preparing any behind-the-scenes materials for your big ask so you can pitch away next week when the messenger planet resumes direct motion. Working with men will be quite fruitful during this monthlong phase. Take your rightful place among the fellas, glass ceiling be damned. A guy who plays a leading role in your personal life may become a central focus of the next thirty days; perhaps youll even join forces on a work-related project, artfully mixing business and pleasure. TMI alert? Loveplanet Venus decamps to Scorpio and your honest-to-a-fault ninth house from Wednesday till December 15. Wearing your heart on your sleeve is fine, but relationships could unravel if you go spinning one too many yarns. Bare your soul, but do so selectively. Rehashing every detail from your past could turn your lover du jour cold. Does s/he really need to hear about the time your ex left you stranded at a Marrakesh airport or other tales from the vault marked The Insecure Years? No, Pisces, so stop painting pictures of yourself that downplay the confident, sexy badass you are today. Cultural barriers were meant to be broken, especially when it comes to love. With Venus in Scorpio, you could be swept off in an overriding attraction to someone from a different background or part of the world. Vacation romances sizzle with strong potential, but these arent merely of the fond memory ilk. Venus in Scorpio creates deep and abiding bonds. Who knows, Pisces? Someone you meet in your travels over the next few weeks (or a tourist cruising through your hometown) could become a real-deal romantic possibility, which might even lead to one of you relocating. Coupled Pisces, plan an early getaway from family festivities. Although retrograde Mercury can cause snafus with your itinerary till the 26th, hightailing it to a known vacation spot could be the sweet escape you need this weekendeven if you DO have to work on that report between romps in the sheets. With the moon in Pisces for most of Thanksgiving Day, youre the veritable Pied Piper of playtime. Bundle up and take the kids, nieces and nephews to the citys parade or other turkey-day themed events. Make sure there are toys set up for both the wee ones and entertainment for the adults (Glee Karaoke Revolution on the X-Box, anyone?). Take the lead in the thankful toasts around the table. Youll break the ice and help everyone relax into an emo groove. Pass the tissues!
