November 23 through 29
Stuffed? A sensual, earthbound Taurus moon in force through Friday can help you satisfy each of your physical desires. However, youd better be on your toes Saturday when unpredictable Uranus, the mad genius, flips out of retrograde and into direct mode. Whatever youve been ruminating on since the summer solstice will officially end with the Gemini full moon this weekend. It may take a few days to reorient yourself, but the artistically inspiring, romantically satisfying trine between loving Venus and idealistic Neptune early Monday can do wonders for your heart and your soul.
Aries: Mar. 20 - Apr. 19
Solar Sagittarius is traditionally a fun time for the Ram. Not only do you get on particularly well with your stable of frisky Centaurs, but as the sun passes through your zone of higher education, your hopes (for a festive and profitable holiday season) rise as well. Theres nothing like a gathering of fire signs -- dont forget to invite the Lions -- for raising hell. Meanwhile, magnetic, amenable Venus continues to reign over your Libra partnership house, so youre liable to experience more interaction on that score than you have in a while.
Taurus: Apr. 20 - May 20
Sex, death and other peoples money could become readily available after the sun enters Sagittarius and activates your mysterious eighth house. However, even if left to your own devices, but this week, thanks to a full moon in Gemini, your individual earning power can also grow. You might benefit as well from having Mercury in your Scorpio house of life and business partnerships until Dec. 1. If theres an agreement on the table, now would be a good time to go over it with a fine-tooth comb and, if it all reads well, to sign.
Gemini: May 21 - Jun. 20
This weekend the full moon in your sign might shower you with more attention than you want. Its enough that youll have to deal with kooky Uranus in your Pisces midheaven flipping out of reverse and screwing with what you thought was your career path. But if its not about your career, then a surprising development in the family circle could follow from the directional switcheroo. If you flew somewhere else for Thanksgiving, be sure to ascertain that things at your house are how you left them before boarding a return flight.
Cancer: Jun. 21 - Jul. 22
Many a Moon Child has a natal planet or two in Gemini, so the full moon in the sign of the Twins might pack more of an emotional punch than you anticipate. Not to mention that, this being Thanksgiving weekend, youll probably get your fill of leftovers as well as of family and their bellyaching. Because Uranus rules the skies, while the unpredictable planet is turning direct in your house of long-distance travel, best to play it safe and come up with an alternative plan for getting home, if thats where you want to wind up. Carpe diem.
Leo: Jul. 23 - Aug. 22
As soon as the critical opposition on Saturday between the informative Gemini moon and the hopeful Sag sun has passed, and youve learned what you needed to know, you may feel its finally time to put your workload behind you. You could even accept the fact that your sun ruler has crossed over to fire-sign friendly Sagittarius and the season to be sociable is upon us all. Further confirmation should come when affable Venus invites impressionable Neptune in your house of partners to play and youre asked to join in the fun.
Virgo: Aug. 23 - Sep. 22
Just when you think youre finished, they add another item to your to do list. Fulfilling everyones request is not only taxing, but because erratic Uranus does a complete turnaround in your house of significant others this weekend, it could be genuinely exhausting. Not to mention confusing. Knowing in advance that the people who matter may act nuttier than usual is reason enough to bury your nose in a research project that should benefit from your Mercury rulers last week in Scorpio. Come the 1st, its on to Sagittarius and the endless party.
Libra: Sep. 23 - Oct. 22
The Gemini full moon this weekend can bring a project thats dear to your heart to a satisfactory conclusion. After two weeks of plotting and planning, you may actually get what you want, but you could also get what you didnt even know you needed. Although this lunation illuminates your house of sexual desire and other peoples resources, its having your Venus ruler in your own sign thats making you more attractive than a lovable Libra has a right to be. Add the mystical aura Neptune in your house of romance is projecting and youre practically irresistible.
Scorpio: Oct. 23 - Nov. 21
Its primarily the Scorpions who celebrated their birthdays earlier in the week wholl feel the full impact of the Gemini full moon on their close relationships. Remember that the Twins are of two minds, and thats what you could expect to hear from your partner: a yes and a no. Tricky as it may be, try to make the necessary adjustments without asking too many questions. While curious Mercury is still in your sign, keeping your own counsel, especially about matters concerning the house and family, cant be easy.
Sagittarius: Nov. 22 - Dec. 21
Most Centaurs wont be as strongly affected by the full moon in their opposite sign of Gemini as they will by Uranus flip from retrograde to direct this Saturday. Because the planet of uncertainty has been docked in your Pisces zone of domesticity since March 2003, by now you should be an old hand at dealing with yet another unexpected development regarding the family or the house. Happily, the disruption could have an upside for any Sag celebrating this week -- a successful surprise party thrown by neighbors and friends.
Capricorn: Dec. 22 - Jan. 20
Isnt it romantic? Well, with a full moon in Gemini, the atmosphere can be recreational as well as lovey-dovey. Pure creativity is also a distinct possibility, especially since Luna is casting her rays on your productive Saturn ruler. How money flows from this lunation, however, is not readily apparent, but there is an indication that other peoples resources are becoming more available than they were last week. Also other peoples approval, specifically from an artist or a well-known woman who shares your ideals and/or musical tastes.
Aquarius: Jan. 21 - Feb. 18
Its a good weekend for air signs, what with the full moon in Gemini on Saturday and an incredibly romantic connection between affectionate Venus in Libra and fanciful Neptune in Aquarius exact on Monday, but in effect as early as Friday. So if you concentrate on the positive vibes flying about, you might be distracted enough to miss any weirdness stemming from your Uranus rulers about face. Changing gears from reverse to direct can feel like youre caught in a scene from The Day the Earth Stood Still. Dont make any sudden moves for a while.
Pisces: Feb. 19 - Mar. 19
Beware the gossipmongers! A full moon in chatty Gemini may seem harmless enough, but the Twins typically have a lot of information to convey. And since Mercury, their ruling planet, completes a challenging square aspect with Neptune, your ruling planet, even a disinterested observer can surmise that no good can come from the relationship. Add the flotsam from erratic Uranus change of direction in Pisces early Saturday, and you could be surprised as we are by your behavior. On the other hand, the loving is extra special.
