Weekend Forecast: Meow, Gemini! On Friday, hot-blooded Mars begins a six-week tour of Capricorn, your eighth house of intimacy and soul connections. Mars lingers here until Christmas day, setting you up for a holiday season filled with scintillating surprises. Some Geminis will get engaged, others will get pregnant, while others will finally see their relationship status advancing to a new level of intimacy. One word of caution, though: the flipside of Mars is its warrior nature. Deep discussions could also reveal areas of lingering discontent. While you work through them, guard your tongue. Stay in a “No-Snark Zone.” Your comments will be perceived as especially incisive during this transit, and the last thing you want is to break up over something you wish you hadn’t blurted out. The eighth house also rules wealth and long-term finances. Again, Mars’ influence can cut both ways. You may find yourself receiving unexpected sources of income like commissions, bonuses, dividends or even inheritance. That said, holiday shopping could put you in serious debt if you’re not careful, especially if you need to make a large and unexpected purchase between now and December 25. Offset that cost by pinching pennies in other places. The best way to save is to share, so see if you can organize some friends into a communal-resources pool for the holidays. Instead of hosting the party, plan a potluck, and for friends who are the same size, see if you can organize a rotating closet for holiday clothes. A secret Santa is more cost-effective than buying separate gifts for everyone. Reconnect with the holiday spirit by sharing rather than spending. On Sunday, the Sun and Mercury meet up in your house of well-being. Organize your socializing around healthy endeavors. Meet friends for yoga and a vegetarian brunch, or rally everyone into heart-pumping spin class. With all those sexy endorphins rushing through you, you’ll whistle your way to workweek preparation. Who knows? You might even get asked out while you’re pushing your cart through the grocery store or returning a ceiling fan to Home Depot.
