It seems as if the cosmos is handing each of us a Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free card. The New Moon in Sagittarius on November 29, 2016, urges us to respond to nearly any opportunity with a hearty "YES." Every New Moon contains a gift that is wrapped in a promise. Since Sagittarius is the zodiac sign associated with optimism, we are now being offered the possibilities that hope brings. Instead of seeing a situation as it is, we can envision the potential contained in the present moment. Luckily, five planets in Fire signs supply the enthusiasm needed to pull off our great escape.
Meanwhile, lovely Venus dynamically squares wild Uranus at the time of this New Moon, prompting radical behavior as we attract eccentric people and innovative ideas. We're less interested in comfort than we are in pursuing the thrill of a new experience. Nevertheless, we're willing to work hard for our rewards since Venus is in ambitious Capricorn. Success is within reach if we are diligent in our preparation and consistent in our efforts. However, this is not a Karmic-Free Zone and we must answer to austere Saturn if we take our freedom of expression too far.

Taurus Horoscope (April 20 - May 20)
It's only natural to set your goals higher when you are sure you can reach them.

Instead of trying to control the external flow of events, focus on improving your inner game.

Roman philosopher Seneca wrote, "Everything that exceeds the bounds of moderation has an unstable foundation."
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Although you Goats can be extremely goal-oriented, joy is patiently waiting in the present moment.

Rather than fighting against these cosmic forces, give yourself permission to retreat from the serious business at hand and enjoy the magic of your imagination.
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Like everyone else, you probably have a lot on your plate. Nevertheless, set aside some time to revel in the camaraderie of your family and friends while the high-spirited Sagittarius New Moon empowers your 11th House of Community, reminding you of how much you enjoy this time of year. Although this exhilarating lunar influence sounds great, the noise may be a bit too much. You can still kick up your heels, but the fun and frivolity will last longer if you know when to stop.
