Weekend Forecast: Expand, explore and experience: this weekend is all about taking the long view of life. From Friday through Sunday, the moon is in Cancer, your optimistic and worldly ninth house. Suddenly, you’re the most cheerful and sunny-side-up person in the room, and the Grinch has stolen your cynicism. How did THAT happen, Scorpio? No matter; just enjoy this bout of buoyant spirits. On Friday, the moon’s trine to imaginative Neptune in your passionate fifth house could bring a creative breakthrough, or perhaps romantic sparks of the cross-cultural variety. Love, amore, amour…take it however it’s served. This would also be the weekend to relax a few of your own self-disciplined codes and indulge, whether in a delicious party spread or at the holiday sales. Drop the rigid rules and just spoil yourself a little. You’ve earned it! On Saturday, your co-rulers Mars and Pluto meet in your communication house, making it a read-between-the-lines (and then some) kind of day. Prepare for subliminal messages, penetrating insights and conversations that can feel like CIA interrogations. Keyword, Scorpio: perspective. As in, don’t lose yours in your quest to get to the heart of the matter. Sunday gives you the urge to splurge, but before you head out on a shopping spree, make sure there aren’t some larger expenses looming. Or at least, check the return policies. You may come down with buyer’s remorse before you’ve even reached home with those festive, gift-wrapped packages.
