ARIES (March 21-April 19) ***** You hit Friday with a great flourish and desire to approach life, the holidays, and the moment in a new way. Taking off for sudden vacation might be out of the question for the majority, but the ram will come up with an exceptional idea, given time and space. Ride the whirlwind of freedom Friday night and Saturday. Others will be watching to see if you go for it ... whatever it looks like!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) **** The bull might be more social than usual but just the same will want a special person by them Friday night and Saturday. It cannot be just anyone. Your deep resourcefulness chimes in with a high level of animal magnetism. Go forth and find that special person, and see what could unfurl. No one will wonder why you vanish Sunday.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) **** You are such a playful sign yet you face a very sour, difficult partner or loved one. Fury occurs should you decide to spin free for a fun few days. Your biggest issue is how to liberate yourself yet remain close to this strange moody person. Know you can do it. You are the twin. You will turn a difficult situation into a fun happening this weekend.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) **** Face facts, water is not compatible with fire, and as this weekend begins there is a lot of fire. Rather than blow off steam, take a few days off just for you. Or at least a few hours. When you appear all relaxed and magnetic, a key person not only notices you but also is drawn to you. Look for this event late night Saturday. If one moment can make up for a sour weekend, this is it. A new moon involving relationships provides a new beginning.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ***** You simply cannot contain your naughtiness. That is the way it is, like it or not. Others love it. As TGIF appears you lead the gang into the weekend. The party animal that lies within rises. Do what you want, feel free to carol, dance, and play one of the elves ... or stay up all night if you meet a like elf. Sunday you will crash, but with dreams.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) **** Home is where the heart is, but Friday night you just might not want to head home and vanish. Invite some friends over and then head home and vanish with your guests or guest. What starts out a little strange or awkward becomes a rip-roaring fun night that could go on and on and on. By Sunday, Cupid appears with his arrow as you meet several new people. You know what you want - go for it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ***** You start doing the Christmas party rounds and love catching up on everyone's news. Wherever you are, there is a party going on. You relish every moment of this weekend as you collect business card after business card and cell numbers galore. Try to put the faces to the numbers. Sunday you fall into a slow, drowsy mood. At least you have thoughts to pique your fantasies.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) **** You could go haywire dealing with various issues involving Santa's visit. Yes, finish up your shopping or stop shopping in time to join your friends at TGIF. Catching up on news and perhaps meeting a new person or two might make you wish for more than Santa can bring. Sunday you decide to act on one of these wishes. Good feelings surround you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ***** You beam cheer Friday and Saturday. You radiate caring to all. Your aura draws many people to you, some known, some not. At a party or anywhere where people gather, you seem to have an opportunity to meet a new face or potential loved one. Make the most out of the next few days.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ***** You know what's happening even though you might not be sharing with others. The twinkle in your eye suggests holiday mischief and perhaps more ... only you know for sure. Come Sunday, you emerge with the solstice New Moon blessings. Yes, you can have it all. So, what is stopping you?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ***** Friends surround you on this pre-holiday weekend. You could be visiting and sharing holiday tunes. You sparkle with energy and excitement. Understand what is happening with a dear friend. He or she might need your friendship. Sunday you vanish, hopefully with some glee and a special person.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) **** You take charge this weekend whether at home or at the office. You run the show - but that is not to say that someone you like will not appear. In fact, you notice more than one person of interest. Sunday is yours to take action and draw someone in closer. People are working with you. All is possible.
