hurs­day/fri­day, the full moon in Aries keeps the in­ten­sity dial turned right up. Aries is an in­sti­gat­ing, as­sertive, and ac­tion-driven archetype. Known as the har­vest moon, it is a time to reap from what has been earned or learned.

The full moon is spurred to ac­tion by Pluto in Capricorn’s di­rec­tive to get it un­der bet­ter con­trol. Take the ini­tia­tive and cre­ate the change you want to see. Sub­stan­tial gain and re­ward are the car­rot.

A full moon can be a po­lar­iz­ing in­flu­ence, but Mars, ruler of the full moon in Aries, and Venus, ruler of the sun in Libra, are at work on samepage ac­cord. Teamed up in Virgo, they have just com­pleted a two-year un­cover-it cy­cle and now launch the next two-year im­prove­ment, heal-it, and up­grade pro­ject.

Fri­day can start un­der bet­ter con­trol than it fin­ishes. Ex­pect to deal with more than you’d pre­fer. The long week­end is ideal for tak­ing a break, but the stars call for some ex­tra push, pull, or stay­ing on top of it on Sun­day and Thanks­giv­ing Mon­day.

Tues­day’s stars pile it up on us too. The go­ing should get smoother as the day ad­vances.

The big news is Jupiter’s exit out of Libra and into Scorpio on Tues­day morn­ing. Once ev­ery 12 years, Jupiter, the abun­dance planet, re­vis­its a sign. Al­though no two passes are the same, think back to 2005-2006 and you’ll get a sense of Jupiter’s po­ten­tial im­pact for this next year. The tran­sit is an ex­cel­lent one for all power-play ini­tia­tives, for do­ing what­ever it takes to make the turn­around you de­sire and de­serve.

Happy Thanks­giv­ing!

ARIES

March 20–April 20

Thurs­day’s full moon puts added fire­power be­hind all fresh fix-it, heal-it, im­prove-it ini­tia­tives. A new job or train­ing pro­gram, helper, agent, or spe­cial­ist gets a thumb’s up. A new pet sparks a sense of “des­tined to be”. Sun­day to Wed­nes­day, there’s stuff to get through. Seek money, em­pow­er­ment, emo­tional union, sex­ual union, or spir­i­tual ful­fill­ment; Jupiter into Scorpio is a wealth-gen­er­at­ing tran­sit.

TAURUS April 20–May 21

You are about to pierce through a sound barrier—per­haps theirs but more likely (and more im­por­tantly) your own. A fresh take on life, work, and love is in a bud­ding stage. See those new wants, yearn­ings, and de­sires for the pos­i­tive cat­a­lyst they are. Co­in­cid­ing with Thurs­day’s full moon, Venus and Mars be­gin a new two-year “do it your­self” pro­ject.

GEMINI

May 21–June 21

Whether it’s cho­sen or thrust upon you, what’s fir­ing up now hits a more rapid Go. It’s a big ad­just­ment, but that’s no rea­son to hold your­self up. Thurs­day’s full moon marks the start of a new two-year build-it­bet­ter cy­cle. Sun­day/mon­day calls for you to tough it out. Jupiter into Scorpio loans you added re­source­ful­ness and helps you to fig­ure it out bet­ter.

CAN­CER June 21–July 22

Thurs­day/fri­day, life hits go in some dy­namic or hot-stuff way. No mat­ter how the full moon in Aries un­folds for you, you are wise to tem­per your emo­tions and to take it one step at a time. Venus and Mars are in ex­cel­lent shape for talk­ing it out and work­ing through it. Jupiter in Scorpio, start­ing Tues­day, greatly en­hances prospects and op­por­tu­nity.

LEO

July 22–Au­gust 23

A can-do at­ti­tude looks great on you. Thurs­day/fri­day, get there first: jump into it; go for it. Be spon­ta­neous; try some­thing or some­one new. The long week­end is ide­ally timed, but still, you may have to force your­self through it. Venus/mars be­gin a new two-year bet­ter-your-best cy­cle. Jupiter into Scorpio, start­ing Tues­day, is ideal for a home-base renovation pro­ject, start­ing with you.

VIRGO

Au­gust 23–Septem­ber 23

Look­ing for a fresh start? It’s yours! Thurs­day/fri­day, you’ll hit Go in some dy­namic way. Venus/ Mars in Virgo now launch your next two-year self-im­prove­ment ini­tia­tive. They put head and heart on the same page. Re­la­tion­ships hit the same wave­length too. Sun­day to Wed­nes­day calls for added ef­fort or work­ing it out. Jupiter into Scorpio en­hances in­tu­itive smarts and keeps you re­source­ful.

LIBRA

Septem­ber 23–October 23

Out of sight or be­hind the scenes, you are a busy one. Take time out to re­plen­ish if and when you can on Thurs­day/fri­day. A quiet place to work, think, or heal is ideal. Watch for a fresh spark to light. Heed warn­ing sig­nals; tend to nec­es­sary re­pairs. Sun­day through Wed­nes­day can add pres­sure. Jupiter in Scorpio loans you added strength, sway, and re­solve.

SCORPIO

Some­thing new or added could prove to be a great fit or fix Thurs­day/fri­day. A new job, pro­ject, or piece of in­for­ma­tion fills the gap quite nicely. Even so, there’s work­ing-out to do over this com­ing week. Venus/mars are set to take you to task re­gard­ing so­cial in­volve­ment, self-im­prove­ment, or your health. Jupiter in Scorpio, start­ing Tues­day, am­pli­fies drive, mo­ti­va­tion, cause, and op­por­tu­nity.

SAGITTARIUS

Thurs­day/fri­day, it’s hot stuff; you are too. Spark­ing some­thing fresh and new, the full moon can be a mon­ey­maker or it can light up a so­cial or ro­man­tic op­por­tu­nity. Start­ing a new two-year cy­cle, Venus/mars stage a time-is-ripe mo­ment to face what’s nec­es­sary and to do what must be done. To­day’s sac­ri­fice is to­mor­row’s gain. Jupiter in Scorpio strength­ens in­ner re­solve.

CAPRICORN

Be­gin the search or sign the con­tract now. Dive in; go for it. Thurs­day/fri­day pushes the re­fresh but­ton in some timely, non­nego­tiable way. It could be a new home or fam­ily cir­cum­stance, an ed­u­ca­tion or mar­ket­ing track, or a new plan for your fi­nan­cial fu­ture. Jupiter in­creases your in­flu­ence, sway, and prof­its (emo­tional and ma­te­rial).

AQUARIUS

Feed­back or news lights a fresh spark Thurs­day/fri­day. Im­pulse, in­stinct, and spon­tane­ity do too. As best you can, keep your­self a step ahead; al­lot ex­tra time; keep ex­tra pro­vi­sions on hand. The full moon fast-tracks or short-lists you. Venus/mars hit cut-to-the-chase re­gard­ing nec­es­sary cor­rec­tions and up­grades. Jupiter brings ben­e­fit to ca­reer and fi­nan­cial un­der­tak­ings.

PISCES

February 18–March 20

Thurs­day is bet­ter than Fri­day for work­ing it out with some­one or some­thing, but ei­ther is good for tak­ing it on. Aim for qual­ity over quan­tity this long week­end. Sun­day through Wed­nes­day calls for ex­tra ef­fort or pre­serv­ing. Re­gard­ing mat­ters of heart or wal­let, as of Tues­day, Jupiter be­gins a one-year stack-it-in­y­our-favour cy­cle.

October 23–Novem­ber 22 Novem­ber 22–De­cem­ber 21 De­cem­ber 21–Jan­uary 20 Jan­uary 20–February 18
