Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st)
Although the eclipse this week may spur you on to concentrate your attention on pleasures and delight again, you shouldn’t pass up on the energy and focus that comes with Mars going into Virgo this week. Mars in Virgo is a good handyman and “intern,” especially when it comes to your career and work. He’s great, symbolically, for cleaning up messes, straightening up chaos and jury-rigging nearly anything. It’s great for making the tactical changes you need to make, but you could have trouble with long-term goals. So don’t confuse a quick fix with something that you could fashion into more. For instance, take on a pet project at work, but do it because you want to stretch your muscles and build up your skill set, not because you think it will translate into a raise or new job immediately.
