Important dates: November 1, All Saints Day; 7th, Election Day; and the 23rd, Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving Day is one of the most traveled holidays of the year and it is any wonder that it is? This day signifies being with family and friends whom you love and want a relationship with even though you may be separated by distance throughout the year, whether for college reasons, a new career or a spouses job change, we all try to come together during the holidays to be with the people we love.
Being through personal difficulties since December 28th when my father passed from pneumonia, then my brother unexpectedly died of a stroke while I was having hip surgery in January, a very good friend passed on St. Patrick’s Day and a woman (my first astrology teacher, Freda Flood who had been like a second mom to me for 48 years), died on Memorial Day, I now fully understand what Thanksgiving is all about. Its about being surrounded by those who make you who you are. Its being around the people who have always supported you when perhaps no one else did, or those who were always there no matter what the circumstances. Its about people loving you for you and not for your accomplishments, your status or how much money you had in the bank. It is about unconditional love between the two of you that no external force could change.
I encourage you to be with your relatives and friends during this holiday season and be grateful for them, even if you think theyre strange or odd! Embrace them. Because once theyre gone, you will no longer have their wisdom, knowledge, love, compassion and friendship to guide you through the rest of your life. I miss my family and friends a great deal, but they will always live on in my heart. My sincere wish for you is to have all those people whom you love with you on Thanksgiving Day and for the rest of the holidays. Show them your love; its important.

ARIES – March 20 April 18
Get ready for many family discussions about the holidays and other matters that keep you on your toes. You thought a lot of this madness was behind you; however, you have a little bit more to go. Deal with issues as they happen and dont respond as you always do react instead. The calmer you remain, the calmer the situation will be. This is a great time to get things settled with siblings and family members in general. If having the holidays at your home, be prepared ahead of time and dont let others tell you what you should have or who you should invite. It is time to set some boundaries. Finances may be too confusing now to make a final decision on what needs to be done, but start the process going.
TAURUS – April 19 May 19
You are surprised, but family life seems to improve. You are getting your way about holiday plans and are deciding whether or not to have the Thanksgiving dinner at your home. If not practical, you may be deciding what you need to make for the occasion and take it to another family members home. For a holiday season, you tend to be a bit under the weather or somewhat depressed. Maybe its the holidays, but it seems as if you need to get things decided in your life and you may even have to move on with or dismiss plans that you have already made. Career gets crazy and you feel as if you are overburdened with stress and continuous questions from people who could not possibly know what you are going through.
GEMINI – May 20 June 20
Love issues may be stirring and you may have to make some difficult decisions about your romantic future. Being too sensitive now will not help you decide what you need to do to be happy. Handle your concerns with intellect and logic and you will make perfect decisions. Your creativity and artistic abilities are proven over and over again. You get into so many different areas of expertise that you sometimes even amaze yourself. Asking what you could make or bring to a family gathering will be very much appreciated, but if you are too busy, stopping at a gourmet bakery or fruit shop will keep you in good graces. Its the thought that counts.
CANCER – June 21 July 21
Even though you may be invited out or having a special get together at your home for the holidays, make sure you have plenty of alone time to spend with the one you love. You may need some special time together to get over any disagreements or things that have not been settled. Partnerships are going well. Different viewpoints need to be considered and a compromise that will benefit both of you would be best. Career is going well and there may even be some interesting changes that you will be quite surprised with. This is a good time to stand up for yourself and let others know that you now have boundaries which they may not cross.
LEO – July 22 August 21
Be efficient, effective, and organized this month. People are depending upon you. Money issues can be dealt with properly and easily if you just realize that some habits may have to change. You can be the most delightful host/hostess when you want to be, so put on that smile, make the best dinner you could possibly make and if there are any negative people at your gathering, ignore them for the sake of the holiday. There’s always one to bring everyone else down, but it is not going to happen to you this year. You are prepared, you feel energized and ready for anything. Keep the peace within the family and especially keep an eye on your partner.
VIRGO – August 22 September 21
Many new positive changes will affect you and your partner. Money issues may really start to annoy the both of you as it is being spent without thinking what your partner would say. Some compromise and good conversation are all that is needed to deflate the possible explosion of emotion. If money is tight during the holidays, you can always ask family and friends to bring a side dish or dessert (as well as their favorite drink) to your holiday dinner. Many people do this, so join the club so you do not have to get stressed out. Your creativity and innovative ideas will help get you that promotion or more responsibility for more money that you’ve been dreaming of.
LIBRA September 22 October 22
You seem to be very sensitive and overly emotional now. Nothing is as bad as all that and you know you can handle life if you take care of things one thing at a time or one day at a time. Handle the responsibilities and obligations you were meant to. The holidays should actually make you feel more confident about your life; getting into the spirit with decorations and gift giving will be an absolute joy for you. Partnerships confuse you and you just need to be more self confident and gather up your inner strength and courage to make important decisions. Do not procrastinate too long on important decisions because some of the opportunities will pass you by. Traveling for the holidays is a possibility if you can find the money and decide on where you would like to go.
SCORPIO – October 23 November 20
There is much intense energy going on in your life especially in career. Good opportunities are on their way and there may even be a raise or promotion in the near future. If having any festivities at your home, be sure to do a little each day so that you are not overwhelmed at home. You need to clean the house one day, prepare food on the next day and then cook everything on the third. You will be so organized that you will amaze others with your organizational skills. In this way, you may also join your guests because everything will be ready ahead of time. There seems to be an abundance of good luck and interesting decisions that will lead you into new beginnings and new ventures. Be open to change.
SAGITTARIUS – November 21 December 20
Think of inviting friends to your home that may not have anywhere to go during the holidays. Even if you are fortunate enough to have family and friends around you, not everyone does, so count your blessings. Friendships will be very important now, so be prepared to know who is or is not your friend. When new people come into your life that seems as if they want to be your new best friend, be very careful about telling them many secrets. Deception, secrets and talking behind your back (gossip from jealousy or envy) is very probable. Stand up for yourself and dont pretend you dont know it exists. If you dont stand up for yourself, it just gets worse. Saving more can help you long term. Just buy what you need and not what you want at this time.
CAPRICORN – December 21 January 18
There seems to be a total change in the way you perceive things; you also want to change what you are not happy with. Your personal style, wardrobe and perhaps even holiday decorations or traditions are all equally on the chopping block. Caps want to looker younger, thinner, and healthier and so you start many new regiments of a healthier you from exercising to eating better. You are also trying to be calmer and may even want to study meditation or learn how to contact your angels for whatever blessings you need in your life. As far as the holidays, it depends on what you want to do now. It seems like a small intimate dinner for Thanksgiving is on the agenda. You are getting tired of too many people around you, especially those who are always needy and asking you for favors.
AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17
You are so good with money and you are doing even more in budgeting what you have and trying to get the most of your funds. The holidays are going to be a bit more frugal this year (as with most people), but you are going to shop at sales, auctions, flea markets and thrift stores and will do very well. If having the Thanksgiving holiday at your home, be decisive and ask others to bring the things you will need to make your generosity go a little bit further. A bottle of liquor or appetizers are always a nice way for others to participate in the holiday. Do you want to start your own home-based business? Many decisions need to be made so you can move forward without any interruption in your routine. You need to leave the stress behind.
PISCES February 18 March 19
Your finances seem to be going in a much better direction if you dont do something ridiculous like gamble or play the lottery. Keep extra funds in a bank so you can save to have whatever it is you need. This is not the time to buy anything that you want now and you can get those items by just putting them on your Christmas list. If Thanksgiving is at your home, why not make it fun by having an early afternoon buffet lunch and then having finger foods later in the day with coffee and desserts. This type of set up will keep the pressure off of you and will allow others to mingle and chat with one another. You may want to learn many different religions or metaphysical subjects or just may want to take new classes that will help you on a spiritual level.
