Weekend Forecast: The careful Taurus often fears change, but now is the time to embrace new experiences with open arms. That’s because energizer Mars shifts into Capricorn and your expansive and worldly ninth house for six weeks. You’ll find yourself eagerly seeking fresh encounters that could involve international travel or in-depth study (just wait until Mercury retrograde ends on November 26 before doing anything that requires significant financial investment). For now, read guidebooks and travel magazines, immersing yourself in the cultures of faraway lands. Research different programs, whether for certificates, self-study or advanced degrees. Share your enthusiasm with a close friend on Saturday, and don’t worry if your excitement has your mouth moving a mile a minute; that’s the sun meeting loquacious Mercury in your interpersonal seventh house. Another way to channel that talkative energy is by spilling the beans on your feelings. Don’t let the cat get your tongue. If someone’s been making your heart skip a beat, it’s time to make a love confession. Don’t worry about wounding your pride; be proud of your courage instead. That same energy may come in handy if someone is overstepping bounds. A person who’s been pushing it might need a polite but firm put down. On Sunday, you’re focused on structure and long term goals as the Aquarius moon shines light on your tenth house. The last few days left you bubbling with exciting ideas, but now’s the time to see which ones truly suit you. Beware of being overly pragmatic. Realistic and adventurous are not mutually exclusive.
