Horoscopes (Nov/Dec 2023)By Lee Suksi
ARIES (March 20 - April 20)
Who do you feel loyalty to? Prove it, even if they already trust you. Offer your service, your attention, your love. This isn’t a moment for retreat, for diminishment, noncommitment or even self-reliance. Even if you insist on relying on yourself, don’t force that value onto others. Show up, and bring something to share.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21)
Falling madly in love can be one of the loneliest experiences. Whether it’s with an idea or a person, your world narrows to the circle of obsession, casting everyone else out. You’re at risk of obsession this month. Allow your new devotion to be expansive, helping you explore the world through one person or idea instead of cutting you off.
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21)
There’s so much that you wish you didn’t know, just to keep your mind still. The way to get really, really still, is to give yourself a moment to let everything you know exist. The total weight of all you know – every family secret, every moral evil, every conflicting rumour – can exist at once, making its noise. Make time to hear it all.
CANCER (June 22 - July 22)
When you try something new, it doesn’t have to be major. You don’t even have to tell anyone about it. Begin a secret novelty this month, and see how it serves you.
LEO (July 23 - August 22)
It’s hard to be totally honest in a world that we can’t understand in one lifetime. Our notions of honesty are partly developed by where we recognize lies. When we pay attention, we can see the ones we tell ourselves by accident. Even little lies will be more pesky this month.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)
When we put precision first, we lose consistency. When we zero in on the finest details, there are swathes of life that go unattended to. Perfectionism is the fear that we will get it wrong, but there are many mistakes in any life worth living.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 23)
Sometimes you find yourself speechless, able to watch but not converse, dream but not interpret. Get out your camera, your wallet, your chisel. Find your brushes, your binoculars, your boots. Put on some music and shake your whole body. Find your body, however you can.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 22)
Happy birthday! Time to seduce. When are you at your most persuasive? Most people say one-on-one. This month, bring your most intimate convictions to the public sphere. Apply your charm, your interest, your loveliness to the widest audience possible. Invite the world to what they are responsible for. Use your powers wisely.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 22)
Happy birthday! Who are you? You’re human, and you tend to morph and bend to other peoples’ ideas of you, making everyone come to your party. This flexibility gives you good ideas about who you are. However, during your busy birthday season, I want you to spend some time in solitary self-reflection. Remember, whoever you find in the mirror doesn’t have to exist forever.
CAPRICORN (December 23 - January 20)
You have a central toughness that’s only getting tougher. Offer this toughness in service of protection. To protect well, you have to ask people about their boundaries and desires. That will force some cracks in your armour. You’ll have to trust that this is mutually beneficial.
AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 20)
Think of your first memory, the one you always tell people about when they ask. Now, begin to imagine your life backwards. What precious information is hidden in the time between your birth and the beginning of your memory? Is there something you’ve forgotten that you can access?
PISCES (February 21 - March 20)
Generosity can be a power grab, a way we assert that we’re in control of a relationship. Gifts can be patronizing, an offering that can always be taken away. Can you give and fully surrender what you lose? What can you sacrifice, without knowing who you’re sacrificing to? What can you sacrifice without being thanked?
