Friday gets off to a slow start with the Moon in cool Aquarius and the Sun forming a stressful square with strict Saturn. But the environment softens in the afternoon when the Moon joins imaginative Neptune, inviting fantasies that wash away barriers to romance. The Moon enters compassionate Pisces in the evening, aligning in a potent relationship with loving Venus to stir the heart’s desires. These conditions are ideal for losing ourselves in a magical world where worries fade as dreams of amour make even the most unlikely partner seem interesting. This fascination is really about an urge to merge that can undermine discrimination and lead to regrets if we’re not careful about the person on whom we project these feelings. It’s fine to sacrifice reason for a romantic ride as long as no one is counting on this interlude as a solid foundation for a lasting relationship. Continue reading →
Don’t wait for Friday night to put pleasure on the menu because a divine mood can be set early in the day. The earthy Taurus Moon connects with Astrology’s lovers Venus and Mars first thing in the morning to start the day with delight. Taking it slow is the fast track to pleasure in this easygoing sign. Good food, evocative music, gentle massage and sweet smells arouse the senses and open hearts. It’s a time to relax and create a stress-free atmosphere where fancy clothes and extravagant events can be appreciated but are not necessary to stir romantic feelings. Continue reading →
We could be in for some very strange experiences this weekend. The Moon is in quirky Aquarius through Saturday morning, which favors more experimental and unconventional approaches to love. Surprising a sweetie with an unexpected event or stimulating yourself by doing something entirely out of character could provide an enlivening shock to the system and make life more fun.

There are two distinct emotional speeds to this weekend. It starts out slowly with the love planet Venus catching her breath after turning direct on Thursday, November 18, and the Moon’s move into sensual Taurus on Friday, November 19. This earth sign enjoys the tactile delights that life has to offer, so delicious that food and drink, good music, lovely scents and the power of nature can arouse desire. However, it’s essential to pace ourselves because the Bull doesn’t like to be rushed. In fact, any pressure to act quickly is likely to be resisted with the Moon in this most stubborn of all the zodiac signs. Subtle seduction and gentle persuasion are much more reliable motivators than demands, ultimatums or aggression.
One of the gifts of the Taurus Moon is the ability to enjoy being in our bodies, which makes pleasing ourselves relatively easy. Continue reading →
There’s a cool breeze this weekend that can make it hard to find the emotional heat we usually associate with romance. The mood-giving Moon is in chilly Aquarius where the needs for space, friendship and mental stimulation take precedence over the moist, messy intimacy that typifies our ideas about romantic love. Appealing to sentiment is not going to work now, so it’s wiser to enjoy the company of others without expectations beyond the companionship of the moment. If you feel crowded or start pressuring someone to do what you want, comfort can dissipate quickly and trust might be broken. An independent and innovative attitude makes it possible to enjoy someone as a lover without strings attached or a spontaneous pal who can show up unexpectedly and leave without warning.

The New Moon occurring in passionate Scorpio on Friday, November 5, sets the tone for an emotionally charged weekend. There’s little room for mixed feelings in this super-heated environment as attractions are either magnetically strong or just don’t spark at all. Slowing down to spend time on one activity or with just one person is a way to tap into the concentrated power of Scorpio’s desire and allure. Intelligent conversations are sexy with the Moon in this brainy Air sign, with seduction coming from bright ideas more than flattery or fancy moves.
If your attention wanders, the object of your affection may feel abandoned, so stay close to the one you’re with to maintain the connection. This subtle but powerful sign touches the deepest parts of people, leaving fast talkers and blithe spirits looking like lightweights and removing them from the romantic picture. Letting go of a past emotional wound can be an issue now, making it essential to recognize when you are holding onto a memory that keeps you from living in the present.
The sultry thickness in the air lifts on the morning of Sunday, November 7, when the fun-loving Sagittarius Moon turns hearts and minds toward fresh adventures. Yesterday’s interests can appear dull in the bright light of Sagittarian feelings that do not engage in nostalgia but serve as a beacon of hope about what the future can bring. Having fun without commitment matches the freedom loving spirit of this sign and is a wise way to sidestep the complications of retrograde Venus traveling through the mysterious depths of Scorpio.
