And the Season begins…..
It’s November and the holiday season begins!
I’ve been thinking about my grandson, Teddy, and what I want to get him as a gift. I know it’s a bit early, however, he’s always in my thoughts. He’s four this month and next month is Christmas. Pleasant, loving thoughts, for sure.
I am so grateful for his being in my life along with his daddy, my son, and Teddy’s mom as well. My little family brings me such joy all the time.
You’ve been taught and told to appreciate what you have always…and that’s true. And now is the season that we put even greater focus on gratitude, appreciation and thankfulness.
I appreciate my family, my Dancing Divas, my Zumba family, my friends, my home that I love, my car that gets me wherever I want to go, my body that keeps moving, my bank account that has money in it (I still imagine many more zeros at the end of the number!), my being able to take care of myself without help from caregivers (I still need a lot of help!), my being able to drive to Miami from Tallahassee to see my Teddy Bear, to Orlando to visit my cousin and family, to the beach to visit my friend and most of all, I am thankful that I am ME!
Yes, that’s right! I am thankful for ME!
This may seem a little selfish on my part and I’m here to own it. If I’m not thankful for me first in being able to just be ME than I can’t be, do or have anything else.
When was the last time, if ever, that you said, “Thank you, (your name)!”? And even create a list after your name such as, “Thank you, for taking care of my body” or “Thank you for being the loving person that you are.”
YOU are where the love begins in order to share your big heart with others, and create the life that you desire, and bring joy into your life.
Let’s put more light on YOU by creating a few positive affirmations, first, for you, and next for you to share with others. Change the word YOU to I whether sharing others or speaking to yourself:
You are AMAZING!
You are CREATING!
You are POWER!
You are LOVED!
You are CAPABLE and CONFIDENT!
You are APPRECIATED!
You LOVE and APPRECIATE OTHERS.
You are LOVE!
Now go out and celebrate the holidays in whatever way makes YOU happy!
NOVEMBER HOROSCOPES AND YOU!

GEMINI: You could end up retracing a few steps on the job this month until the 20th as your ruling planet, Mercury, is retrograde in Scorpio. Go over everything with a fine-tooth comb. You may be receiving some personal praise mid-month. Smile and say, “Thank you”. When the Sun moves into Sagittarius, you’ll be in the mood to party. Enjoy the holiday gatherings!
CANCER: Family is always your priority and even more so this month. You may need to act as the referee in a few encounters. Mars leaves Libra and Mercury direct will ease the tension (19th). Be careful in overdoing in eating and spending. You’ll be tempted! After the 25th, show off your talents and check out that raise. People in charge will be more cooperative at that time.
LEO: With the emphasis on Scorpio and your domestic sector, family members may be a whole lot more intent on getting their own way. Angle for compromise! The Full Moon on the 12th in Taurus will have you entertaining the whole gang at your house. Celebrate! At the New Moon on the 26th in Sagittarius, you’ll be on the move and ready to take that trip…. maybe time to go “home”?
VIRGO: Venus in your domestic sector until the 25th inspires you to turn your home into a cozy, warm nest for friends and family. You may feel like decorating or redecorating or even renovating. After the 20th, and Mercury direct, any misunderstandings in communication will clear up nicely. Some long-distance news may your change plans. Consider all options including your involvement.
LIBRA: With Mars on duty in your sign until the 18th, you’ll be energetic and restless. Maybe a bit cranky! Your words carry a lot of weight this month so be careful in your communications. If aggravated, put distance between you. Confusing financial issues will resolve after the 20th and Mercury direct. Get serious about finances and relationships. Ask for help!
SCORPIO: If you’re going to do anything this month, take a level-headed chaperone with you! Jupiter and Venus in your 1st house of YOU and you’re feeling extravagant and generous. Fiery Mars will be in your sign for 2 months after the 19th. Heaven help anyone that fires you up! The New Moon on the 26th inspires you to mend any fences. Work things out for the holiday celebration!
SAGITTARIUS: Talk about attractive! Venus will spend most of the month in your sign and you’re quite charming. A few new admirers may come on the scene including new friends. You’re finishing up an assignment, but take breaks, make free time to spend it with people you love and care for.
CAPRICORN: You’re used to being in charge, Capricorn, and life has given you plenty of responsibilities for the past several months. You’re looking for a break! Mid-month, you’ll be resolving any matters that have taken your attention from the first. Put all the pieces together, avoid drama and see the surprise at the end of the month for a delightful holiday.
AQUARIUS: You love your circle of friends and social groups. And now with Venus in your social house, you might find yourself in even another circle of friends. Don’t pass up invitations. Go along with acquaintances and enjoy! All this spontaneity may find you saying things you may want to take back. It may be time to pull in the reigns a bit. Enjoy yourself without hurting others!
PISCES: Being sensitive to outside influences, you may want to avoid negative people or potential tense situations at the beginning of the month. If your intuition says it’s time to put some distance between you and another, take heed. You’ll have plenty of chances to go out and have fun. Around the holidays, you may find yourself spending time with someone from outside your location. Nice!
