If you’ve got plans to start your weekend early, cancel ’em, Aries. Friday’s Capricorn new moon in your ambitious tenth house opens a window for you to lay important groundwork in advancing your career over the next six months. Don’t sit at your desk drumming your fingers waiting for five o’clock to come rolling around. Start mapping out that big pitch you’ve got scheduled for next week; craft a thoughtful email to that big-name client you want to land; make a point of chatting with higher-ups over break time. And be sure you’ve got a list of the goals you aim to accomplish by next June to keep you on track. With the tenth house ruling the fellas in your world, identify those influential men who can lend an assist or pave the way to the VIP room, and strengthen those bonds. On Saturday, adopt a “more, the merrier” attitude and inject your current crew with fresh faces. Rally your peeps from the different factions in your life and keep the guest list open for friends-of-friends. It might be tricky to get a table big enough at your favorite bistro to accommodate everyone, but don’t stress. The vibe will be even more entertaining doing something active. Think: coed touch football in the snow, a sledding party or a group snowboarding lesson. Roll with the good times on Saturday, because on Sunday a moon-Mars alignment breaks the spell. Differing perspectives and conflicting beliefs could culminate in a stormy war of words. Don’t try to play mediator. Sit this one out and wait for tempers to cool. On the flip side, you’ll be driven to share for sharing’s sake. Throw a lifeline to a family member in need, or devote a few hours to support a charity that hands out blankets, boots and hot meals to people living on the street.
