Nicols' weekly here. She writes like she knows you.
to Nov 23rd
This week the Sun
moves into Sagittarius, which means that in the month ahead, we will
shift from Scorpion energy into Sagittarian energy. A considerable
change! Scorpio is intense, willful, passionate and secretive.
Sagittarius loves to travel is freedom loving and optimistic. Everyone
will suddenly want to blow town. ("Give me sunshine and white sand!")
Since Sagittarians are future oriented, people will start making plans
for the next year.
