Trust is key. There are two distinctly different lunar influences this weekend. Friday finds the Moon in enthusiastic Sagittarius, which is perfectly suited for taking risks and having fun. High hopes, big promises and an irresponsible sense of adventure can be exciting, but also just a little bit dangerous. Sagittarius’ expansive ruling planet Jupiter’s tense 90-degree square with extremist Pluto stirs up some provocative behavior. Bluntly honest remarks may hit below the belt as judgments might grow harsh and hurtful. Desires could exceed reasonable boundaries, pushing individuals to overindulge in life’s pleasures or plunge to despair with unreasonable doubt. Continue reading
The bouncy Moon in lively Leo starts Friday off in a playful manner but the mood is likely to turn a bit more serious before the day is done, due to Luna’s move into practical Virgo in the evening. Still, love can flourish in this meticulous and analytical sign as long as emotional extremes are avoided. Virgo values reason, organization and tidiness, and encourages us to shine by demonstrating our competence and reliability. Sloppy thinking, being tardy or acting inappropriately can be major turn-offs and interpreted as disrespectful and rude. But don’t get the idea that we’ve got to be so uptight that we can’t have any fun now. Instead of searching for the next party, we can enjoy ourselves working on personal projects, developing our skills or by helping others. 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
