Thanksgiving Survival Guide

Thanksgiving Survival Guide
Not that you need a Thanksgiving survival guide, but because you're grateful for your family -- grateful they don't live with you all year round! So here's something to think about that will help you keep your attitude of gratitude -- and maybe also your sanity.

ARIES: Circulate your blood.
That's what keeps it from boiling, you know. It's easy to forego physical activity as you tend to the meals, clean-up and extra needs that come with family gatherings. But you'll be in better spirits if you remember to prioritize your workout.

TAURUS: Be a master of focus.
Not your own focus -- rather, that of your guests. You have more control over it than you think. Need we remind you that you're the Earth sign grounding influence for your group? Bring their focus to the wonderful food, the lovely scent of pumpkin pie and how lucky you are to be with your loved ones and enjoy it all together.

GEMINI: Get trendy.
You're always in a good mood when you're trying something new. Whether it's an offbeat centerpiece that's more leafy vegetable than floral, or green chilies in the turkey stuffing, you get a thrill from seeing everyone's reaction when you pull it off!

CANCER: Get mushy.
Your awareness of other people's boundaries and adherence to good manners sometimes creates a more reserved atmosphere than is necessary. Try bridging the gaps instead. Err on the side of sentiment. Give too many hugs and kisses. Say "I love you" too often. Magic will spring from your marvelous mushiness.

LEO: Go all showbiz.

You're the sign of entertainment, so take charge. Can everyone see a show together? Or watch a movie? Perhaps a holiday comedy that everyone can enjoy will melt any tension and replace it with laughter and love.

VIRGO: Take the help.

Yes, you're more than capable of doing most -- if not all -- the Thanksgiving gruntwork yourself. But if you tackle everything on your own, it'll be counteractive to the spirit of sharing. When people offer, let them do it. Even if it seems like too much. Even if you're not sure you'll like it. Even if you're not sure you need it. Just say yes and take advantage of every bit of assistance you're offered.

LIBRA: Throw out the magazine picture.
You're a perfectionist who wants your table to look just like the glossy loveliness in the magazine. News flash: The gravy had motor oil in it, and the turkey was browned with shoe polish. Yes, that's what it takes sometime to get food looking good under the lights. Enjoy the real-life loveliness of your own creation.

SCORPIO: Skim the surface.
You experience your environment on such a deep level, it's difficult for you to ignore the more profound undercurrents of interaction going on around you. But try, just for one day. Mom says something crazy? Smile, giggle and blow it off. Sometimes it's appropriate, even fun, to play in the shallow waters.

SAGITTARIUS: Serve up factoids.

Your worldly curiosity makes you the perfect one to collect your favorites and lob the most interesting bits into conversation for spice and diversion. For instance, did you know that turkey has more protein than chicken or beef? (Perhaps you can find something more interesting than that, though.)

CAPRICORN: Be a topic cop.
You know the hot topics that will set off certain people in your group. Create a plan for switching the subject whenever you sense someone is nearing a danger zone. Instead of issuing tickets, lead potential offenders to safety via cute kid stories, YouTube videos about kittens, your favorite movies ....

AQUARIUS: Empty their pockets.
Not for you, but for others who are less fortunate. Many of your loved ones don't even know how to get involved in helping, so it's up to you to show them the way. Provide an opportunity for everyone to contribute to your favorite charity -- maybe via a canned-food drive or Toys for Tots -- and you'll open their hearts.

PISCES: Create a spiritual buffer.
You're so sensitive, especially around the holidays, that you tend to easily adopt the vibes and moods of others -- and it's not always a good thing. Imagine yourself stepping into a bubble of white light that is to a spiritual funk what Germ-X is to bacteria. Do this visualization three times throughout the day.
