AF­TER THE THANKS­GIV­ING FEASTS ARE OVER

and the last guests wob­ble away, we’re left with left­overs, fam­ily, and some soul work to do. De­cem­ber looks to be a tricky month astro­log­i­cally, so let’s take a mo­ment to pause on this in­ward-turn­ing week­end and re-cen­ter be­fore we dive in again.

An in­tro­spec­tive Can­cer moon high­lights fam­ily re­la­tion­ships and a sense of se­cu­rity over the week­end. Feel the need to be at home and cozy, and of­fer com­pas­sion for those that don’t have this lux­ury. Beloveds may be feel­ing ten­der and there­fore strangely de­fen­sive. Ev­ery time we see a prickly edge, we know we’re skat­ing near some emo­tional vul­ner­a­bil­ity.

Venus and Mars run to­gether in Li­bra this week and keep the level of emo­tional fer­vor high. Venus is com­fort­able in its own sign and sup­ports friendly in­ter­ac­tion, com­pas­sion­ate acts, and artis­tic en­deav­ors. Mars, on the other hand, is un­com­fort­able in Li­bra and leaves us prone to con­vo­luted deal­ings with con­fronta­tion. We need to deal with con­flict in a straight­for­ward and diplo­matic man­ner, no mat­ter what scale we’re work­ing on.

If old is­sues get trig­gered, it may help to step aside, ad­mit our frus­tra­tions, eat that ex­tra dose of cran­berry sauce and pump­kin pie, and get back in there to make healthy mem­o­ries.

The back­drop for all this year’s tran­sits is a ma­jor Saturn-Nep­tune square that can leave us flooded or haunted with un­cer­tainty; it peaks this week. This com­bi­na­tion dis­solves bound­aries and con­tain­ers, for bet­ter or for worse. By next au­tumn we may find river­banks ad­justed, the world’s pop­u­la­tion re­ar­ranged, and a clearer sense of our own healthy bound­aries.

FRI­DAY, NOV. 27: Deal with the flurry of phone calls and com­mu­ni­ca­tion early on, as peo­ple step into their emo­tional co­coon mid­day when the moon en­ters in­tro­verted Can­cer. Di­ges­tion can get del­i­cate. Let ev­ery in­ter­ac­tion be an op­por­tu­nity for heal­ing.

SATUR­DAY, NOV. 28: It’s easy to project dis­com­fort with larger is­sues and get miffed. Strange emo­tional un­der­cur­rents lay­ered with mem­o­ries of the past can in­spire in­tro­ver­sion and make this day tricky; let go of expectations and let loved ones get a minute alone.

SUN­DAY, NOV. 29: Fuzzy think­ing or de­pres­sion can leave us feel­ing old or as if we should work harder. We drift, dream, and feel per­me­able, but we can’t see very far ahead. Tonight we need to be ut­terly our­selves.

MON­DAY, NOV. 30: Reach out and make con­tacts about projects for the com­ing month; stir the pot, it’s a good day to make things hap­pen. Some of us who haven’t been feel­ing heard act out; we just need to tell our story clearly.

TUES­DAY, DEC. 1: The cre­ative process kicks into high gear, in­spir­ing rad­i­cal ideas and a fresh release of in­for­ma­tion, though we can also spout off with­out think­ing. Feel the im­pa­tience, surf on its waves, and move for­ward. Later, ev­ery­body needs ap­pre­ci­a­tion and nur­tur­ing.

WED­NES­DAY, DEC. 2: We feel stretched thin as the moon en­ters nervy Virgo. Pri­or­i­ties shift dur­ing the day as new in­for­ma­tion comes in. The mood soft­ens af­ter din­ner; it helps to ex­press grat­i­tude for any sup­port.

THURS­DAY, DEC. 3: Short-term pos­i­tive as­pects ease the work­load and let us han­dle the many sim­mer­ing pots. Peo­ple don’t re­ceive crit­i­cism eas­ily; keep it short and spe­cific. De­cem­ber’s chal­leng­ing as­pects be­gin to kick in. We see what’s com­ing and need to pace our­selves.
