Your Weekly Horoscopes: November 28 to December 4, 2021

Though this week has its share of calmer influences, the total solar eclipse (a supercharged new moon) in Sagittarius on the 4th ties things up with a bang. Eclipses bring revelations, as well as both beginnings and endings. The final eclipse in the archer’s sign until 2029, this lunation is for closing one chapter and beginning another. Sure, it might be easier to keep our options open, but the story begins when we make a choice. As born-on-a-Sagittarius-new-moon Natasha Bedingfield sings, “The rest is still unwritten…”

(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)

12 Aries  

This week’s solar eclipse on the 4th brings a difficult chapter in your education, travel and long-term planning sphere to an end. For the past few years, you’ve had your vacations derailed, your grad school plans put on hold and your family’s next steps waiting in limbo. These setbacks have of course been pandemic-related, but they’re also a result of shifts in your values and beliefs. Though this eclipse might bring one final disappointment, take comfort knowing that moving forward, you’ll only be working with what’s actually possible.

This week’s mantra: “I am what I believe I am.”

1 Taurus  

The solar eclipse in Sagittarius on the 4th delivers a final verdict on an ongoing debt, tax or loan situation in your life. If you’ve been avoiding speaking with an accountant, have lingering divorce paperwork to sort out or need to double check the status of your student loans, now’s the time to get on top of that. Working with this eclipse ends a long period of financial instability for you. As painful as it is, it’s time to take a close look at all that mess you swept under the rug.

This week’s mantra: “I can’t fix what I can’t see.”

2 Gemini  

The solar eclipse on the 4th might mean a breakup but it could also signal a relationship breakthrough for you, Gemini. Since early 2020, you’ve let go of so many close friends, business partners and lovers. Some of these losses were tragic while others were the result of a connection running its course. This week’s eclipse ends this difficult chapter, allowing you to take stock of the partnerships that survived this stormy time. Sure, you’ve only been dating your new boyfriend for a couple months but you know you love him, why not let him know?

This week’s mantra: “I am worthy of love and respect.”

3 Cancer  

You’ve got so much to do this week, Cancer, but with everything building to an intense solar eclipse on the 4th, remember to find time to relax and stay hydrated. With this eclipse falling in your health and daily grind sector, there’s high probability for burnout or even an unexpected doctor’s visit for you or your pet! Though you love doing all the holiday shopping and party planning yourself this time of year, it doesn’t hurt to delegate a little. Exhaustion doesn’t have to be the norm.

This week’s mantra: “I am calm. I am well-rested. I am hydrated.”

4 Leo  

The solar eclipse on the 4th brings a rough chapter in your dating life or artistic practice to a close. Both art and romance require desire, eros and a spark to get going but you’ve been lacking fire. Think back to June 2020, December 2020 and May 2021: What did you really want at those times and why didn’t you pursue it? Was it futile or were you just unsure of what you really wanted? If there’s anything you’ve learned over the last 18 months, it’s that denying yourself pleasure isn’t the answer. Let yourself thrive.

This week’s mantra: “I desire, and that’s OK.”

5 Virgo  

Whether you’re in the midst of a (yet another) move or mediating a tense fight between your siblings, this week’s solar eclipse on the 4th concludes a dizzying chapter in your home and family life. For the last 18 months, you could never quite settle down. There was always something else to fix. Comfort was an illusion. Though you’re still in the throes of the final hurdle in this story, there’s a breakthrough waiting on the other side. At the very least, you’ve learned to love being alone.

This week’s mantra: “Alone isn’t lonely.”

6 Libra  

Your immediate surroundings have changed dramatically since June 2020. You’ve moved to a new neighborhood and switched up your coffee shop. Friends and family members who were once your emergency contacts have become people you catch up with once every six months. Perhaps more than anything, you’ve learned that as much as you want to, you can’t fit everything and everyone into a day. The solar eclipse on the 4th wraps up this cycle and gives you a sense of clarity about what you need to feel good in your environment.

This week’s mantra: “There’s always time for what really matters.”

7 Scorpio  

The solar eclipse on the 4th falls in the part of your chart that deals with money, income and your personal values. Think back to June 2020, December 2020 and May 2021: How are the money choices you made then impacting your life now? Do you have more clarity about what you actually need to survive? It’s not selfish to do something that benefits only you. In fact, leaning into the pleasure of self-expression is your medicine for this week. Ask for what’s yours.

This week’s mantra: “What I have doesn’t define who I am.”

8 Sagittarius  

You’ve been through a lot since June 2020, Sagittarius. You’ve changed your style, redefined your boundaries and embraced the pixie cut of your dreams. This week’s solar eclipse on the 4th is the last eclipse in your sign until 2029, so enjoy this final week of playing a reluctant main character in a thriller. Your speech at this year’s birthday party is going to be especially sappy, you have a lot of people to thank for their support along the way.

This week’s mantra: “I am enough.”

CAPBANNER  

This week’s solar eclipse on the 4th ends a difficult chapter of isolation for you, Capricorn. A lot of the work you’ve been doing since June 2020 has been behind the scenes, unappreciated by your usual admirers. It’s important to do this kind of shadow work, but you can’t stay in the dark forever. You may want to close this era with a quick solo retreat or a long, luxurious bath. You’ve let go of so much but also gained clarity.

This week’s mantra: Comfort in solitude is strength.

10 Aquarius  

The solar eclipse on the 4th concludes a stressful era for your social life. Think back to June 2020, December 2020 and May 2021: What changes were occurring in your friend groups, coworker relationships and community commitments at that time? Do you miss those people who you stopped seeing because of your disagreements over COVID compliance? Or are you happier now that they’re gone? Your social commitments might be lighter now, but all are authentic.

This week’s mantra: Choose quality.

11 Pisces  

The solar eclipse on the 4th brings clarity on a major decision you’re making in your career. Though you want to do it all—have all the jobs, make all the money—you can’t do everything at once. Priorities must be identified. Though you might have to give up on a project or put a goal on the backburner, this choice gives you time to focus on something that might be less glamorous but equally necessary.

This week’s mantra: Nothing wrong with a slow ascent.
