In the Stars
Your Horoscope: Friday, November 20, 2009
-Margaret Santangelo and Kitty Raymond
Scorpio: You are in nurturing-caretaker mode on Friday and throughout the weekend. If a sick friend needs chicken soup or your vacationing sister’s dog needs walking, you’re right there. Good karma is its own reward, but you may also reap the benefits of your generosity next time you need a favor.
Sagittarius: Spend Friday reflecting on the past month and what you’ve learned about your own psyche. On Saturday night, the sun enters your sign, and you’ll kick off a new phase with fresh motivation. For the next few weeks, it’s all about you. (Well, and turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. But mostly you.)
Capricorn: With the moon in your sign all day Friday and straight through to Saturday night, you’ve got plenty of energy for weekend fun, as well as to catch up on half-completed projects. Bringing some work home doesn’t cramp your weekend style; rather, it’ll help you relax during your remaining downtime.
Aquarius: After an exhilarating week, you’ll most likely want to take time out on Friday to recharge your batteries. Though friends may call with invites to socialize, you’d rather hang out with the Real Housewives. But on Saturday night, the moon will enter your sign, reinvigorating you for the rest of the weekend.
Pisces: Friday, it may fall to you to organize a getaway with friends or a meeting with your professional-networking group or book club. Don’t be afraid to lay down some ground rules. People will be impressed when they glimpse your leadership ability, which could increase your career prospects over the coming weeks.
Aries: A burst of Friday productivity helps you greet the weekend with a sense of accomplishment, free from any nagging anxieties about to-dos hanging over your head. You have a seriousness of purpose but retain your sense of humor. Even with so much on your plate, you’re still carefree and up for an adventure this weekend.
Taurus: Your significant other is kind of needy this weekend, and may insist on, essentially, being babied. That doesn’t mean you have to play Susie Homemaker and run around cooking and cleaning, though. Offer a pat on the head and some moral support, and the whining will stop. (Hopefully.)
Gemini: Loose ends need to be wrapped up at work on Friday…unless you can figure out a stealthy way to delegate the responsibility to other people. If you play it cool, they won’t even know what hit their in-boxes. The vibes are perfect for a romantic night out on Saturday or Sunday—or both.
Cancer: You’re playing a maternal role this weekend, whether it’s to your own kids, the niece who’s visiting you, or your Maltipoo puppy. Patience and acceptance are key qualities in this regard. (Unless, of course, the Maltipoo chews your Jimmy Choos—not even the most loving mother would tolerate that behavior from her baby.)
Leo: You may or may not be the boss lady by profession–but on Friday, you’re doing that job regardless of whether you’ve got the business cards to back it up. Although barking out orders can be, frankly, kind of fun, you’ll be relieved to take off that hat and just have fun this weekend.
Virgo: Being a Virgo, you get a sense of satisfaction from making sure things run smoothly. On Friday, you’re happily conducting the orchestra of various virtuoso players that is your workplace. This weekend, you’ll apply the same principles of organization to your household…though you may not have as much luck getting it in order.
Libra: The eternal teenager in you might still think of Friday night as party time, but that’s not in the cards this week: You’ve got family matters to attend to, and your loved ones are counting on you. But take heart—the rest of the weekend will be free and clear for leisure and lazing around.
