Sagittarius is the sign of big, bold, wildly adventurous leaps of faith. It's also the sign of joy and uproarious laughter -- just the kind of boost you really need when your family shows up for the holidays. This sassy sign could be your saving grace when faced with any family dysfunction at Thanksgiving, as it rode into the cosmos last week on November 21!
Say your uncle starts spouting some absolutely ludicrous conspiracy theory he discovered on the Internet. If the Sun were in serious Capricorn or aggressive Aries, you might not be able to endure it without flying off the handle. Give thanks for Sagittarius, because it helps you to cleave to your sense of humor even when you're totally questioning how you could be related to this guy. When he sits across the table from you, looks you in the eye and declares his allegiance to a political theory that you abhor, at least you can have a good laugh instead of throwing the turkey at him.
Note that Sagittarian energy can make strident people seem even more strident, and it has a tendency to expand whatever energy is present. So if you're harboring underlying emotional issues, secrets or passive-aggressive feelings toward family members, they can be exacerbated now. Mixed with too much imbibing (excess is a Sagittarian signature) this can be a not-so-great combo.
So remember: laughter is your best medicine this holiday season! If you're feeling dread and angst, tune into your inner comedian and the ice will be instantly broken. That, and a second helping of pumpkin pie will smooth out any potential bumps in the road -- fast!
