Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st)

As your sign’s patron, Jupiter, prepares to go toward more watery pastures in Cancer, this week is a good week to steel yourself and prepare you for it. Steel might seem like a strong word for this, if only because it’s not like I’m talking about something that’s potentially dangerous or bound to be terribly uncomfortable. It’s just that over the next month you may be a little more caught up in your feelings and mulling your relationship to caretaking. Let’s be clear: I’m not saying that you don’t give a damn about anyone or anything. Or you’re only committed to being care-free as astrologers often describe you.  We all know that’s (mostly) not true. But caretaking is a different beast and it means sitting with the dreariness of standing still long enough to deal with upkeep, maintenance, and sometimes messy after-effects.
