Happy Thanksgiving!

As our Moon sign reflects our emotional nature, it illuminates what we find nourishing and nurturing. This can color our attitudes as well as what it is that we seek to derive from different experiences, including the Thanksgiving meal.

Aries Moons love the beginnings. They may be more interested in the appetizers and any pre-meal hors d'oeuvres than what later follows. Enthralled by pioneering experiences that help them to keep things fresh, they're the ones magnetized to the first-time guests, from whom they love learning new things.

Lovers of the sensual, Taurus Moons are enchanted by the expansive offerings of a delicious meal filled with fragrant smells and delightful flavors. Creatures of habit, they find comfort in the Thanksgiving rituals -- whether it's the turkey carving, parade watching or college football viewing.

Gemini Moons are all about variety. Serving (at least) two choices of entrees, fixings and even cranberry sauce will keep their interest piqued. Yet, while they may enjoy the food, it's the conversation that likely keeps them nurtured during this holiday gathering.

With a strong connection to family, Cancer Moons are especially nurtured by a meal that features numerous generations as well as recipes that have been passed down from their relatives. They love sitting around the table, talking of feelings as well as times past.

Enlivened by celebration, Leo Moons enjoy a gathering that is fun, festive, and lets them shine. They enjoy food that reflects a creative flair, and if they are the host, they will sink their heart into the cooking, to create an event of which they can be proud. Music played during the meal will enhance their happiness.

Virgo Moons appreciate a Thanksgiving meal that offers vegetable and/or whole grain dishes that allow them to maintain their health-conscious commitment. Lovers of craft, they appreciate any DIY touches involved, including the handmade decorations, uniquely folded napkins, and desserts made from scratch.

Libra Moons love beautiful food that's presented elegantly. A table decorated with fine china, crystal glasses and candles will go far to nurture their aesthetic spirit. They find pleasure in the social aspects of the holiday, the opportunity for delightful dialogue and relationship building.

Gathering around the table with friends and family provides Scorpio Moons an intimate environment where emotionally rewarding experiences can be had. When it comes to the food, they appreciate complex dishes that offer deep flavors that are not apparent upon first blush.

Adventurers at heart, Sagittarius Moons are open to trying new things and may quite appreciate a Thanksgiving meal that features foods from other cuisines. An upbeat gathering with conversations that involve philosophy and travel suits them quite well.

Capricorn Moons are traditionalists and love a meal that features all the time-honored dishes for which Thanksgiving is commonly known. They don't mind the work that the holiday often requires -- whether it's driving a great distance to attend or the numerous hours required if they're the host.

With their unconventional spirits, Aquarius Moons get a buzz out of innovative takes on the Thanksgiving meal, whether that it be vegan, an international theme or a potluck. They appreciate a gathering that features a unique array of people, perhaps even an assortment of friends, family and community members.

Sensitive Pisces Moons may be less focused on the food than on the opportunity to be with their loved ones and feel a great sense of connection. With a high reverence for gratitude, they're the ones you can count on to the suggestion that everyone at the table state what they are grateful for on this Thanksgiving.
