Despite whether you're in a festive mood, you'll be delighted to learn that Nov. 26 will be a good day, especially if you’re one of the zodiac signs who will have the best Thanksgiving 2020. While you shouldn’t completely lose sight of the true meaning of this day — as there are people both in the U.S. and around the world who don't celebrate the occasion — looking at this time of year in terms of your harvest blessings while cozying up to a warm fire with someone you love on a chilly night can evoke a feeling of gratitude.
As you know, whichever zodiac sign the moon is traveling through can help you determine the overall mood, and with the moon traveling through hot-headed Aries, having a short fuse and acting on impulse is a given. Since we're talking about every foodie's favorite holiday, now would be a good time to tell you that eating fast and eating with your eyes instead of your belly is quite common when the moon is in Aries. Don't bother telling any of your relatives this, especially not while they're mid-bite.
Something else that's important to consider — and I hate to be the bearer of bad news here — but the moon will be squaring off with Saturn. This astrological transit is equivalent to the idea of a Debbie Downer. For instance, the moon is symbolic of one's emotional world, but Saturn is the planet of boundaries and limits. Naturally, this creates a feeling (moon) of restriction (Saturn) and, at times, isolation. So make sure to take full responsibility for your feelings instead of projecting them onto someone you love. Keep in mind, we're still in the middle of eclipse season, as there will be a full moon lunar eclipse on Nov. 30, so there's no escaping the feeling of tensions rising. So, if you find yourself feeling triggered by a relative's political preference, it's best to just walk away from the situation.
Chatty Mercury will start to build toward a powerful sextile to taboo-loving Pluto amidst its journey through Scorpio. You'd think aspects involving the lord of the underworld are supercharged and penetrating enough as it is, but Mercury’s transit through a Pluto-ruled sign (Scorpio) will simply fuel this aspect's potency.
For those of you wondering if Thanksgiving is doomed this year, it's not. Astrology tells a story, but in the end, it's really up to you to decide what you're going to do with that energy. More importantly, if you have the opportunity to get together and spend quality time with the ones you love — via FaceTime, Zoom, and/or in person — I hope you make the best of it.
On that note, and despite the astrological chaos swirling all throughout Thanksgiving Day, here’s why Sagittarius and Aquarius are in for a treat:
Sagittarius: You’re Beaming With Birthday Season Charisma, And You’re Full Of Pizzazz
It's a good day, Sagittarius. Sure, the moon will square off with Saturn, but you're one of the luckier ones in that the moon will be lighting up your romantic fifth house of passion, pleasure, happiness, and children. So if you feel like bringing your crush along to Friendsgiving, or perhaps introducing them to your relatives at dinner, don't second-guess yourself. Saturn in your second house of values may or may not challenge your confidence levels, but you are not your thoughts.
Aquarius: You Have A Lot To Say And You're Talking Up A Storm With Your Relatives
Easy on the heated debate sessions, Aquarius. With the moon in your third house of communication, it's easy to get riled up and word vomit your thoughts without thinking, so make sure you're being mindful of the people around you and more importantly, that you're waiting your turn. Other than that, you'll be doing what you do best, and that's making a dazzling impression on your elders, peers, and relatives.
