Thanksgiving falls on November 24th this year. Here is wishing everyone a wonderful holiday! With a little foresight and knowledge of the transits ahead of time we can avoid holiday pitfalls and problems.
November 23, Mercury conjuncts Saturn at 16 degrees of Sagittarius. It looks like many people will be finishing up work projects, and attending to serious matters this day.
This can indicate a cautious mental outlook, worry or anxiety and a heavy workload. There could be delayed communication, transportation issues or issues with relatives. Don't let heavy responsibilities or too much work or negativity affect your holiday spirit-plan ahead now.
By late afternoon, Thanksgiving Day, Venus conjuncts Pluto at 15 degrees of Capricorn. Venus rules money and women and combinations like this can get too intense. This can indicate very intense emotional experiences which can either demean or uplift. Go for the love! Drama and family drama may play out with this.
Romantic relationships especially, can be affected by too much intensity or jealousy. As the Moon is in Libra this is indicative of a desire to be with loved ones, but early evening hours can get intense as the Moon (women) squares Pluto.(power struggles-issues) Let go of heaviness, save that for another day, and enjoy the day.
November 25, is black Friday in the US and with Venus still conjunct Pluto I would avoid the malls/shopping centers at any cost. That is, unless you are ready to defend yourself against another shopper who is ready to fight over the same item. Venus conjunct Pluto=a desire to acquire at any cost. It wouldn't surprise me if we don't see riots in the stores. Maybe not literally, but then again..
Hope you have a great holiday and remember what Thanksgiving really is: Thanks giving. After all, we all have so much to be grateful for!
