We need psychic space this outspoken weekend; let’s be as compassionate as we are honest. Don’t try to contain the family in small spaces. The mood is great for energetic games or group projects if the family is so inclined, but too much togetherness produces sparks. Drop the agenda; instead, start something fun and invite others.
As the weekend progresses, a Taurus moon brings a cozy note, making it easier to deepen our reconnections. Talkative Mercury sextiles expansive Jupiter, which helps us communicate and brings us closer to the radical acceptance we all could use. A Taurus moon also brings us an acquisitive streak; kids leave with leftovers and maybe a few favorite things. Bargain shopping for Christmas can get fierce. We tend to debate policy intensely, whether it’s family politics or healthcare reform. Change is in progress and needs our attention but not our arrogance; if the debate gets too intense, take a deep breath and celebrate any recent improvements together to unlock our understanding.
Midweek, Venus enters the sign of the traveler, Sagittarius, under a full moon in Gemini. This can change our minds or make us want to shake off our shackles and run. Relocation or travel tempts us. People are ready to try something new, and we can be the ones who open the door. Friday, Nov. 27: A rough dawn burns off quickly into a creative day. Volatile energy fuels funny, action-packed times if we’re free to be expressive. The vibe is generally humorous and enthusiastic, but impatience can make us careless. Saturday, Nov. 28: We are spontaneous, confident, and competent in short bursts but low on patience. We need to laugh at ourselves and accept others exactly as they are. We won’t tolerate criticism, guilt-tripping, or being ordered about, which could put a dent in family conversations. Give kids a place to run. Ask elders about their history to direct thoughts away from contentious topics. Sunday, Nov. 29: A Taurus moon stabilizes our stamina and temperament. Communications improve even if opinions are still fixed. The moon trines Pluto— let feelings flow. Travel early in the day; we are more accident-prone late afternoon as Mars sesquisquares Pluto. Steady efforts win. Monday, Nov. 30: Be kind— post-holiday times can be tough. Unsettling news or interrupted communications make the situation ambiguous as Mercury squares Uranus. A shock helps us wake up. Nervous worries and outrageous comments should be taken as smoke, not fire— the situation may change tomorrow. Opportunities are found in mishaps and changes in plans. Tuesday, Dec. 1: Kids get silly and minds open up as the moon enters Gemini, Venus enters Sagittarius, and Mercury sextiles Neptune. Invitations, messages, and negotiations are on the table; keep talking and consider all possibilities. Brisk mental tasks succeed, but don’t expect rigorous logic. Sleep is hard to come by tonight, so let’s gather together and talk rather than toss and turn. Wednesday, Dec. 2: An early full moon may leave us tired and wired but can really blast open lines of communication. Everything is a work in progress. Enjoy the flirtatious buzz and good storytelling, but check the facts. Look for a potential breakthrough in long-distance communications. Thursday, Dec. 3: Stay involved. Some doors close so others can open as the moon enters Cancer and opposes Pluto midday. We are melancholic, but our concentration returns this afternoon in time to deal with structural and administrative challenges. Grumpiness is ambient and can hurt tender feelings.
