The sun on Mon­day en­ters Sagit­tar­ius — gre­gar­i­ous, rest­less, pos­i­tive, gen­er­ous, and grate­ful. It’s ap­pro­pri­ate that the most trav­eled hol­i­day — Thanks­giv­ing — oc­curs un­der its watch, fol­lowed by mad shop­ping, char­i­ta­ble do­na­tions, and wild hol­i­day par­ties. Sagit­tar­ius en­cour­ages out­spo­ken hon­esty, so it’s the time for bru­tally frank com­ments and philo­soph­i­cal wran­gling over the fam­ily ta­ble. It also pours pre­vi­ously avoided facts into the head­lines.

Hol­i­day travel flows best at the be­gin­ning of the week. On Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day the Can­cer moon calls us home to fa­mil­iar faces and com­fort foods, but watch the ten­dency to say too much and clash with a ten­der de­fen­sive­ness as Mer­cury and Mars con­junct this week and square Uranus to­ward week’s end. Keep de­bate warm­hearted and make sure the au­di­ence can lis­ten first. If peo­ple seek de­bate on a ten­der topic, let them know of its sen­si­tiv­ity.

Breathe deeply while cook­ing, and chop nuts and carve turkey with calm grace, as ac­ci­dents and ar­gu­ments in­crease when we hurry. If travel is nec­es­sary, ex­er­cise safety and co­op­er­a­tion. Pay ex­tra at­ten­tion at hubs and in­ter­sec­tions or any­where en­ergy con­verges from many di­rec­tions.

Fri­day, Nov. 19: Re­la­tion­ships need at­ten­tion; praise where they work, be pa­tient and com­mu­nica­tive where they don’t as the moon waxes in Tau­rus. Cheer­ful di­rect­ness wants to set­tle con­flict quickly and cleanly but can meet with a pas­sive-ag­gres­sive re­sponse un­less we lis­ten first. Ask ques­tions but keep the edge out of the voice if you want real an­swers. Tonight, look for cozy ca­ma­raderie or a good de­bate.

Satur­day, Nov. 20: It’s easy to fight as a mi­nor sun-Saturn chal­lenge raises lim­i­ta­tions while Mer­cury-Mars rails at the lim­i­ta­tions and the Tau­rus moon en­hances stub­born­ness. Keep chips off the shoul­ders and han­dle op­po­si­tion gen­tly. Mid­day, work the body, as mus­cles know more than brains. The mood light­ens af­ter sup­per as the moon sex­tiles ex­pan­sive Jupiter.

Sun­day, Nov. 21: Un­der the full moon in Tau­rus, let’s clar­ify what we want and take re­spon­si­bil­ity for the next step. Con­ver­sa­tion opens as the moon en­ters Gem­ini mid­day and un­sticks sit­u­a­tions. Words flow, but make sure we mean what we say.

Mon­day, Nov. 22: At­ten­tion goes out the win­dow, but our abil­ity to jug­gle mul­ti­ple fac­tors im­proves as the sun en­ters Sagit­tar­ius. Time speeds up and last-minute de­tails need at­ten­tion. Co­or­di­nate and save time mid­day as the moon trines Saturn. Don’t drop the ball on long-term work as short-term ur­gen­cies are dis­tract­ing. We need pa­tience through a cranky, clumsy spell tonight as the moon op­poses Mars.

Tues­day, Nov. 23: A sweet con­fu­sion can soften our feel­ings but make us lose track of time, place, and keys. Later, new in­for­ma­tion needs to be di­gested; ob­serve but post­pone un­nec­es­sary de­ci­sions. Learn, talk, and mull in­stead. Travel flows; just pay at­ten­tion and don’t snag on crinkly com­ments.

Wed­nes­day, Nov. 24: Morn­ing brings mem­o­ries of Thanks­giv­ings past as the moon op­poses Pluto; let it be melan­choly, not mo­rose — a re­minder of what is im­por­tant. Mid­day, tech­ni­cal dif­fi­cul­ties and missing sup­plies com­pli­cate mat­ters as the moon squares Saturn. When peo­ple are crabby, be help­ful. Work with pa­tience even when re­sults aren’t vis­i­ble.

Thurs­day, Nov. 25: Travel is best be­fore noon; keep safety first as Mer­cury squares Jupiter. Opin­ions are ripe but recre­ational, so take wild state­ments as ec­cen­tric­ity rather than at­tack. Op­ti­mism grows mid­day. A warm and funny af­ter­noon brings serendip­ity as the moon trines Uranus and Jupiter. All we need is com­fort­able com­mu­nion; let the heart be a hearth fire. ◀
