Just as you think your financial situation is balanced and under control, unexpected expanses crop up which cannot be postponed or ignored. In the weeks to come, if you are very careful, and budget your income honestly you should be able to ride out the storm. Not all the people who call themselves your friend really are and this is the time for weeding out those who are toxic and jealous.
HINT: Take some time to finish a project that has been sitting on your desk for far too long.
Not everyone understands your motives and drive, but that should never stop you from working toward attaining your goals. You know what you wish to do and at this stage you also know what is missing. When dealing with family members try to remain objective as this week you will want things done your way.
HINT: Lately you have felt a need to reconnect with people living far away and in the coming months you will begin making serious plans to travel.
You work best on your own right now and will have to find a balance between your professional obligations and your personal needs. During the middle portion of this week try to get out a little as you are beginning to feel stifled and confined. Money and finances are always on your mind, but this week things are finally moving in a positive direction.
HINT: Before you sign any important papers, ask someone you trust to go over your answers.
This week you must pay close attention to the needs of your partner and/or mate as together you work on a very special project. This time you are going to have to put everything else out of your mind and concentrate on the job at hand if you are to meet your deadline. Money and finances are, once again a subject which needs careful consideration and now is the time for getting some sound adv ice from an expert or two.
HINT: You may have a problem making up your mind this week, so be prepared.

Problems from the past are beginning to ease up and miraculously disappear. Trust yourself and you won’t go wrong.
HINT: When dealing with a water sign take a stand but do it gently— tough love and a velvet glove will work wonders.
SAGITTARIUS (FIRE) NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21 Finally you feel free to simply be yourself. For far too long you have been dancing to everyone else’s tune and now is the time to stop and say ‘Enough’.
