It’s Thanksgiving week in the US, usually a quiet time as businesses close early and people head home to spend time with their families. But the cosmos has a lot in store this week, so don’t expect it to be nothing but eating and watching the football game on TV.
The fiery Sun enters Sagittarius on Monday, your eighth house of intimacy and bonding. This is where we connect on a deep level with a lover, sharing our bodies and our minds. As a result many Taureans will be having “the talk” this week—about getting engaged, having a baby, meeting the parents, moving in together and so on.
Wednesday is major with a Mercury-Saturn conjunction. Considering that Saturn is the planet of planning long term, talks could become quite serious. If you or your partner is reluctant to move forward, you may sense it now. Avoid the desire to try to ram things though for expediency’s sake, a mistake with a tense Jupiter-Pluto angle on turkey day.
As a matter of fact, Thanksgiving isn’t a good day to push anyone’s buttons. Naturally people like to spout their opinions about the state of the world (or the family) as they sit around the dinner table, but differences of opinion could get heated, Taurus. Grab the mashed potatoes, pour some gravy on them and chow down in silence.
It appears from your chart that people around you may feel threatened by a newfound sense of independence on your part. Metamorphic Pluto is blazing a path through your adventurous ninth house, encouraging you to live a bigger life. A wonderful Venus-Pluto conjunction on Friday will make you even more determined to follow your own path, wherever it might lead.
Saturday could bring a sweet surprise: a loan from a family member, landing a bonus or new client at work, or finding out that someone is warm for your form. This energy lasts into next week, so see what happens!
