Horoscopes for the week of November 23rd
“I did not like what you had to say during my astrology reading because it was the truth. Please, keep telling people the truth.” ~From A Client
The most life changing quote that I have ever come across is by Dr. Maya Angelou: “When people show you who they are, believe them.” The reason why this strikes such a chord is because I have a tendency to see people as I wish they were, and I am often deeply disillusioned when I finally see the real person standing in front of me. This quote reminds me of a conversation I had with an old friend of mine who said to me, “Tracey, people are going to disappoint you, and you are going to have to accept that.” As soon as he uttered these words, I knew that it was also his way of telling me not to be so hard on others when they don’t measure up to my expectations. I know that the acceptance of people, and circumstances, is necessary to prevent hurt, upset, or whatever feeling surfaces when something doesn’t go the way I imagined. I know better than to try to change a person, and I know when to stop forcing an outcome. As I get older, I get better at calling a spade a spade – it is what it is. What I still struggle with is what happens after the acceptance of things.
What to do once you have reached a place of acceptance depends on the situation. For example, I accept that racism exists, and so I choose to be a participant in whatever exercises are available that can help eradicate what has become ingrained in our society. I accept that my grandparents have passed on from this life, and so I often must recall a memory that makes me smile when I find myself missing them. But what do you do once you have accepted a group of people, or a person, that may be different from you? Someone who may have harmed you? Someone who has different beliefs, struggles, or opinions? The only answer I can think of is to show them compassion. I realize that this can be difficult, but showing compassion has the effect of deepening the love in our hearts – a deepened love that is necessary for doing good in this world one spirit at a time, starting with you.
The Sun and the planet Saturn are scheduled to meet up in the sign of Sagittarius. In Astrology, the Sun represents our conscious self, Saturn represents limitations and restrictions, and Sagittarius represents wisdom and knowledge. We are currently being called to accept what “just is” in our lives, and in the world at large. It may require the removal of what restricts us from seeing the truth, and the whole process will, for lack of a better word, suck. But it will also undoubtedly lead to a shift in perspective – one that reflects truth. The beauty in all this (yes, there is beauty here) is that the energy of Sagittarius is benevolent; what is revealed will be the lesson and message we need, encouraging us to take up arms with compassion and love to create a new reality, and maybe even save the world. Did I mention that Sagittarius is also optimistic? Check your horoscopes to see what’s in store this week ahead, and don’t forget to read for your Ascendant sign.
On the day you were born, all of the planets were positioned in the signs of the Zodiac – not just the Sun. To find out more about your full astrological make up, email Tracey for a personal Astrology reading at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Aries: As wanderlust sets in, and you begin to set your sights on new territories and philosophical wisdom, you can expect a hard truth to be revealed as well. Maybe you decide to change your lifestyle completely, starting with healthier living. But first, you must shed a few pounds. A reality check this week will immediately follow a sudden burst of motivation to pursue whatever inspires you. When the smoke clears, you can ground your efforts, and steadily manifest what you envision. As a certified Life Coach, my job is to empower you to live an empowered life.

Taurus: You may not want to go deeper in to a situation than is comfortable. The pragmatic Bull tends to stick with what makes sense, which is why you are so sound and reliable. But at this time, you might be feeling pressured to take a risk and go all in, whether for business or pleasure. If you can stay grounded, you’ll be fine. Be open; don’t be a fool. State what you need as reassurance; don’t dig in your heels to get what you want. It’s a delicate balance, but you stand to gain much in the end. As a certified Life Coach, my job is to empower you to live an empowered life. Visit traceylrogers.com for details.
Gemini: Should I stay or should I go? Or maybe, the question is will they stay or will they go. Relationships are front and center this week, and it’s a make or break time that sees you committing, or going separate ways – for good. This could be in a business setting, or with regards to a romantic partnership. Either way, you won’t have the luxury of putting off a final decision. If you do decide to dive all in, be ready to sacrifice a piece of you for the sake of union with another. As a certified Life Coach, my job is to empower you to live an empowered life.

Cancer: Let’s face it, Cancer – you can’t do it all. You can’t keep going at this pace. Something has to give. Whether you are on overdrive with a new health regimen, or piling on all kinds of extracurricular activities, know that everything will come to a screeching halt if you don’t get better with time management and conserving energy. This week is a good week to slow down. Give thanks. Get some rest. Spend time with the people who matter; only do the things that really matter. As a certified Life Coach, my job is to empower you to live an empowered life. Visit traceylrogers.com for details.
Leo: Romance, children, and creative projects heat up as we near the end of the year. However, you will have to get serious in your pursuit of such things. If you are involved in a budding new romance, expectations should be expressed upfront. If you are trying to finish a creative work, discipline and focus are necessary. If you would like to have a baby, there may be a few challenges. This is what it is, Leo. I realize you prefer things to be easy; but alas, extra elbow grease is required. As a certified Life Coach, my job is to empower you to live an empowered life. Visit traceylrogers.com for details.
Virgo: The next few weeks may prove somewhat difficult for you, Virgo, emotionally speaking. I know a few Virgos and Virgo ascendants dreading the holidays with family, but you can’t get out of being present at home and with your kin. If you are experiencing any anxiety, it would behoove you to nurture your emotions more intently, putting boundaries where necessary in order to keep your sanity. Creativity peaks on the career front, so it might be worth using this energy as a distraction. As a certified Life Coach, my job is to empower you to live an empowered life. Visit traceylrogers.com for details.
Libra: The holidays might see you taking a few short trips to neighboring cities and towns, as you pop in for a visit with friends and distant relatives. However, you would be wise to ensure that your mode of transportation is reliable, and that the people you set off to visit are ready to welcome your company. There may be some tension that takes the fun out of a road trip, or, it could just be that your flight is delayed. If you know you are in dire need of an oil change, don’t put it off until 2016.

Scorpio: Many Scorpios may experience moments of low self-esteem and decreasing self-confidence over the coming weeks. This will most likely come up due to financial strain, the loss of an important possession or opportunity, or the end of an affair. It will be easy to play the victim as a result, so you will have to go easy on yourself and watch your self-talk. There is always a lesson to be learned – this might stem around what you value, and how to feel personally secure on your own. As a certified Life Coach, my job is to empower you to live an empowered life. Visit traceylrogers.com for details.
Sagittarius: An important shift is in store on the relationship front – a culmination of activity, if you will. There’s a chance that you might be left feeling a little vulnerable and maybe even sad, but whatever happens will be necessary as you continue to work on your own personal goals. If a client backs down, or a lover must go, try not to assume the worse. A new door will open – one that leads you to an experience you never envisioned. Until then; call on your optimism to guide you through. As a certified Life Coach, my job is to empower you to live an empowered life. Visit traceylrogers.com for details.
Capricorn: It will be important that you remember not to be too hard on yourself as you come into greater awareness of your inner workings. While what bubbles to the surface may very well come as a surprise, you can take comfort in knowing that you have the tools to lean into what is revealed, and address what needs to be addressed. An activity in your daily life seems to be ending, freeing up more time and space for such reflection. It would be wise to get still, and listen to your intuition. As a certified Life Coach, my job is to empower you to live an empowered life. Visit traceylrogers.com for details.
Aquarius: If you really want a new dream and inspiration to manifest on this Earth plane, you need to reach out to as many folks as possible – friends, contacts, associates, etc. I recommend this approach because you might have some trouble finding supporters; even those you just knew would be on your team may be hard to reach. In fact, when it comes to a creative project, or even a romance, something will shift. It will be imperative to seek company with those you can count on. As a certified Life Coach, my job is to empower you to live an empowered life. Visit traceylrogers.com for details.
Pisces: Work matters will take up much of your time and headspace over the next few weeks, Pisces. In fact, as your days become more hectic through the end of the year, family matters may need to be put on hold. Whatever is distracting you emotionally from doing a job well done needs to be examined and released – which is possible around the time of the Gemini Full Moon this Wednesday. Once all is cleared, focus, drive, and initiative will begin to increase on the career front. As a certified Life Coach, my job is to empower you to live an empowered life.
