Weekend Artoscope — Predictions and Picks for Nov. 23-25

A Full Moon in Sagittarius this fourth weekend in November reminds us to make space for emptiness so that we can fill ourselves anew. The day following the great feast provides an opportunity to reflect on our gratitude, feel the weight of our indulgence and reset the scale as we move through the holiday season. Sometimes the food coma can obscure our will to stay strong against negative energies and distracted thinking, but in this particular moment, the stars are stacked in our favor. It is pulling us towards opportunities to find intentional, dynamic ways to be creative with our material wealth, that are community-based, community building, and won’t necessitate a financial audit from a qualified third-party or anti-neighborhood zoning variances.
