Weekend Forecast: Rome wasn’t built in a day, but on Friday it’s time to lay the first few bricks. Getting started is the hardest part, so if you need encouragement, reach out and ask your friends to help. Maybe they provide encouragement, or perhaps they arrive with the mortar, eager to get their hands dirty with you. An object in motion stays in motion, so once you get into a groove, it’ll be easier to keep going. You’ll be lured by the siren song of Black Friday sales, and if you can afford it, go ahead and indulge. Check online for circulars and comparison-shop to make sure you get the best deals. Remember that Mercury is in retrograde until November 26. If you have any expensive electronics on your shopping list, make sure your purchases come along with a good return policy, just to be on the safe side. On Saturday, your motto can be “The more, the merrier,” but nix plans to bring those disparate factions of your friendship circle together. You just won’t have the energy to bridge the vegan-yoginis with the buttoned-up business types. Flock with the “birds of a feather” instead and you won’t waste hours trying to find a restaurant or club that suits everyone’s random tastes. While the communal table was perfect for Saturday, you’ll prefer an intimate setting for two on Sunday, when the Taurus illuminates your partnership zone. Your perfect playdate companion? The stimulating intellectual type who knows how to carry a conversation. Meet for brunch, and then feed your inner culture vulture with an obscure museum exhibition or artsy film.
