Your Weekly Horoscope: November 28th to December 4th, 2021
·11 min read
The last red shreds of November and the beginning of December offer different Earthly climate conditions depending on where you are, but the astrological weather is a shared one. On Sunday the 28th, the Sun in Sagittarius makes a conjunction to Mercury in Sagittarius and it’s a good time to say our goodbyes to visiting family members and tenuous connections lest we finally say what’s been percolating for days yet never lands well. Of course, conjunctions are not a bad time for the right conversation, especially when it comes to making new connections and agreements with like minds. So make a date, a phone call, an inquiry with someone who you regard highly, or someone who knows how to make sense of all your inklings.
There are two trines on November 29th, Mars in Scorpio to Neptune Rx in Pisces and Mercury in Sagittarius to Chiron in Aries. Both of these trines involve Jupiter and Mars (Mars rules Scorpio and Aries; Jupiter rules Sagittarius and Pisces), so both of these trines activate our desire to enact our will and to expand on what we have already learned and/or experienced. The ideas and inklings, the fortuitous conversations and synchronous emails, they gather around these days asking us what we mean to do with our “wild and precious life” (Mary Oliver, Mars in Scorpio).
November 30th features several sextiles and supportive aspects. Mercury in Sagittarius makes a sextile to Saturn in Aquarius and if you mean to put discipline behind your big plans, you’ll find that there are more ways to move forward then you could have predicted. And they have always been here. The Sun makes a trine to Chiron and it’s a good reminder that you couldn't be who you are, know what you know, without having lived through what you lived through. It’s a gift to be able to see that in yourself, it’s a doorway toward empathy if you walk through it. Speaking of empathy, Venus in Capricorn makes a sextile to Neptune Rx in Pisces and while Venus persists in her retrograde shadow, there’s space today to be supportive of each other even if we don’t understand each other’s methods, even if support means stepping back. The independent Sun in Sagittarius echoes this influence, forming a sextile to well-boundaried Saturn in Aquarius.
Neptune stations direct on December 1st, giving our mutable signs a little relief and our ships better sailing weather for the moment. Both Mercury and the Sun make a quincunx aspect to Uranus on the 1st and 3rd respectively, maintaining that while certain discomforts are behind us, we take ourselves wherever we go and are highly prone to recreating old dynamics with new twists. These insistent desires to move forward, these troubling realizations that there are no versions of ourselves left behind, these faithful steps toward the unknown lead us toward the new moon on December 4th, which is a solar eclipse in Sagittarius. Like the heat around a light bulb switched off, or the hum of an idea taking shape, the night is electric and generative.

Russia is considering buying the currencies of "friendly" countries such as China, India and Turkey to hold in its National Wealth Fund (NWF), having lost the ability to buy dollars or euros due to sanctions, the central bank said on Friday. The bank said it was sticking to the policy of a free-floating rouble exchange rate but highlighted that it was important to reinstate a budget rule which diverts excess oil revenues into the country's rainy day fund. In a report on its monetary policy for 2023-2025, the central bank said various options on how to return to the fiscal rule and replenish the NWF are now being discussed, taking into account the Western sanctions against Russia over its actions in Ukraine.

Unifin's shares were down 7.21% in late trading Friday.

Even if Mazda's direct suppliers were Japanese and European companies, they still had parts coming through China, said Takeshi Mukai, the automaker's senior managing executive officer.

The Canadian dollar edged lower against its U.S. counterpart on Friday as oil prices fell, but the currency still notched its biggest weekly gain this year as signs of U.S. inflation peaking eased worries of aggressive tightening by the Federal Reserve. "The market has less angst," said Greg Anderson, global head of foreign exchange strategy at BMO Capital Markets in New York.

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) -The Bank of Mexico hiked its benchmark interest rate by three-quarters of a percentage point to a record 8.5% on Thursday, mirroring the U.S. Federal Reserve's most recent policy decision as inflation surged to an over two-decade high. The five board members of Banxico, as the central bank is known, voted unanimously for the second 75 basis point hike in a row, saying the board would "assess the magnitude of the upward adjustments in the reference rate for its next policy decisions based on the prevailing conditions." Analysts said that language gave its forward guidance a slightly dovish bias, moderating the tone of its prior monetary policy statement on June 23 when it said the board intended to continue raising rates and would "evaluate taking the same forceful measures if conditions so require."
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Samsung's de-facto leader secured a pardon Friday of his conviction for bribing a former president in a corruption scandal that toppled a previous South Korean government, an act of leniency that underscored the tech company's huge influence in the nation.
