The 26th is a big day this year in the US, as families/ those we love congregate to share a meal; sometimes this is the warmest of gatherings where gratitude truly reigns, and sometimes tensions building not just through the year but through a lifetime surface, bringing what was known on ‘Seinfeld’ as ‘the airing of grievances’. Whether you celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday or not, are in some other part of the world or right here in the good ol’ US of A, it’s important to express our thanks to each other and the Universe on a regular basis. So what will tomorrow’s get-together hold? A reality check, and an almost miraculous chance to change long-time upsets, to spin that resentful straw into relationship gold.
Saturn perfects a square to Neptune, suggesting that fantasies won’t be sustainable in the face of reality–and that’s a very good thing, as the more clear we are on What Is, the more accurately we can shape and respond to events. This aspect also shows us what may be inhibiting our creativity, and what blocks may stand in the way to realizing spiritual ideals. Be open to the realizations the tension between these two can offer; to ignore (Saturn) our need to materialize (Saturn) our creative nature, our ideals, and the better world we visualize (all Neptune) is to miss the opportunity within the conflict.
Relationships will benefit by taking an approach that quite deliberately puts the Other first. I’m not talking about deferring to others so much as refusing to think in terms of ‘I want’; think instead in terms of ‘what we like together’. For those dealing with finances on the ‘morrow we may see erratic, spur-of-the-moment choice or rebellion against obligations incur unexpected costs–so avoid taking the unexpected (or even innovative) option where money’s concerned, and this even and most especially if someone else urges us to (Venus in Libra contra-parallel Uranus in Aries)
Where we put our attention will be the place we can discover effective means of changing the course of things. If a relationship needs improvement, if resentments need burying, if bad blood needs purifying, it can be done tomorrow–just as long as we accept that we actually have the power to do it (Sagittarian Sun novile and parallel Pluto in Cap)
The 27th holds some minor contacts that hold major pitfalls: Sag Mercury sextiles Black Moon Lilith and semi-squares Juno, both in Libra. This suggests that our minds will be on all those things long ignored or denied in relationship, or that have enraged us–possibly prompted by those changes of the 26th–and the tendency may be to feel things are repaired in such a way that we can honestly speak our minds about our feelings and the way these affected us–but we would be wrong. We may damage our just-repaired relationships and psyches by dwelling on and repeating, like an incantation, the negative. Think about it, but don’t share it, and realizing it no longer is, let it go–that’s the only way to reclaim the personal power that was lost to anger and bitterness, and to move forward, rather than sliding back into a mire, in those just-rescued relationships.
Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it, and wishing a delightful end to the week for all.
