Thanksgiving Moon


Thanksgiving owes much of its context to the months that occurred before that autumn meal, months that the pilgrims spent tossing the stormy sea to come to a strange land that they were not prepared to survive. Under the Aquarius moon, we're reminded that this holiday is as much about mercy and compassion as it is about gratitude.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Spending time with loved ones is a pleasure even though you're very busy through it all. Few will help out more than you. You'll apply your strength and stamina and pull off huge feats.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Fate proves to be a thoughtful friend, bringing you surprise gifts. Nightfall will be especially nice. There's a romantic theme pulling you into the evening hours.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are so interested in what others are all about that you may not even notice how interested they are in you. Your insouciance about the matter makes you all the more irresistible.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Family dynamics are fascinating — more so when the family you are observing is not your own. There will be 10 sides to every story and very little agreement between the different versions. That's what makes things so interesting.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Don't go on wondering; just ask. Assumptions lead to unnecessary problems. But if you communicate well, you'll have a beautiful day and contribute significantly to other people's happiness.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Because you ask for what you prefer (instead of declaring what you don't like), you will be given all kinds of sweet offerings. Everything you learn from others helps you to be more fully you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The food is important, but you're focused on what really matters: togetherness, the people you care about and the many blessings that fill your grateful heart.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll be with the ones who like to hear what you're thinking and will enjoy creating a dialogue. Go easy. Most of this sharing is just opinion, and those can always change if you're not holding on to them too tightly.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your mind needs food, too. A muse will surface unexpectedly as your nearest and dearest inspire you with just the right mental nutrition to set your wheels in motion again.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A sweet, laid-back mood prevails. The bottom line is, people want to be around you.

You'll field an over-the-top offer from someone trying a little too hard to capture your attention.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It's not always easy to catch people up with what you've been doing. With so many creative outlets, you may feel that you're progressing too slowly across the board. Stop the worry. The only one pressuring you is you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Being with people you've known for a long time makes you realize how much you've changed. Your entire self-concept is different. Because you see yourself in a new light, they will, too.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 27). You have more to do this year, and somehow this brings out the superhuman in you. December shows you with a prize. Partnerships evolve into a new arrangement in January that is invigorating to all. Your personal life settles into a happy groove once a work issue clears up in February. Capricorn and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40 37, 25, 20 and 30.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I'm an 85-year-old Pisces, and I have a granddaughter who is a 5-year-old Aquarius. Her parents give her so many things that it seems to take a lot to impress her. As much as I would like to, I don't have the financial means to travel with her to a theme park or buy her fancy toys. I want her to remember me always. What can I do with her that will create the most impact?"

The experiences you create with her do not have to be expensive to be memorable. As a soulful, creative Pisces, you shouldn't doubt your ability to make a deep familial connection. You naturally put your heart, soul and imagination into your interactions. Your loving presence alone will create a memory. And you can enhance that memory by giving it some sensory impact. Do you like to cook? The smells, tastes, textures and sights of what you make together will stick with her for a lifetime. Pisces people are also quite musical. Playing music, either on an instrument or playing recordings of music, will engage your Aquarius in lasting ways, especially if you sing and dance along. Also, consider exchanging special nicknames for each other, because Aquarius loves the whimsy of this!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: The course of rock 'n' roll was altered by the early licks of Jimi Hendrix. A tragic childhood led Hendrix to quest for freedom, personal expression and artistic liberation through his love affair with the electric guitar. Hendrix was born when the sun, Mercury and Venus were in the passionate and adventurous fire sign of Sagittarius. "Excuse me while I kiss the sky." — Jimi Hendrix
