Back into the fray again this week starting off with Mars conjoining Pluto in Capricorn on Monday and squaring Uranus in Aries on Wednesday. It is vital to remember Mars is very controlled and focused in earthy Capricorn, so people may not be obviously angry. Mars conjunct Pluto acts very much like Mars in Scorpio and one thing Mars in Scorpio is good at is biding its time to exact revenge. Play nice and treat others with kindness and consideration. If you have the Sun, Mars or Ascendant from 11° to 13° in Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn, you may need to exercise more restraint than usual because in the heat of the moment you could take matters way too far.
Another less than fun aspect is Venus in Scorpio conjoining Saturn on Wednesday. Saturn has a way of taking all the fun out of life and when sweet Venus conjoins him, relationship choices can seem very dreary. Those of you who are celebrating your birthdays between November 10 and November 15 will have this conjunction in your Solar Returns. You may find yourself learning towards safe but boring choices in your love life which can destroy relationships from the get go. Thankfully Venus moves quickly and by Sunday, she will leave Scorpio behind for Sagittarius . . . much more optimistic place for Venus to play.
It’s not all gloom and doom this week. Mercury in Scorpio has returned to the degree it went retrograde and is trine compassionate Neptune in Pisces. Perfect aspect for finding the right words to express empathy and caring. By the way, Neptune is preparing to station direct on November 15-16 at 4° Pisces. But unless you have personal planets or Ascendant at 4° in the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) you probably won’t notice anything.
I suppose the square between the Scorpio Sun and Jupiter in Leo on Thursday can go either way. Sun-Jupiter aspects often promote extreme positions and this one is no exception. Some will feel like the economy is picking up and others the opposite. What there will be very little of is middle ground!
Good time to make a concerted effort to practice kindness and forbearance along with generous amounts of tolerance and patience. We may also see the reemergence of issues we dealt with in April or variations of those themes. Be careful and play nice!
If you know your Rising sign, please read the horoscope for it too. 😀
You are a force to be reckoned with this week, Aries, and anyone who is brave enough to cross you will know it. Think long and hard about your long term goals and what you are willing to do to achieve those. Please do your best to avoid being irritable and arbitrary.
Taurus, there are times when you have been known to settle for a less than ideal partnership because it makes you feel safe and secure. This week could be one of those times. Please give yourself plenty of time to consider all of your options. Who knows? Next week you may feel differently.
The atmosphere this week is far from ideal for you, Gemini. It is far too dark and contentious. You may want to focus on making adjustments to your work habits and think about how you can improve your health and wellness routines. Just so you know, there are better days ahead starting next week.
Dealing with your one-on-one relationships could be quite interesting in a rather scary way this week, Cancer. Power struggles are possible bringing anger management issues to the fore. The first half of the week looks especially dicey so tread carefully. You probably won’t be in the mood to play either.
You might run into problems with your coworkers the first part of this week, Leo, that could take some careful handling on your part. If you have home improvement projects you are working on and they seem stalled out, practice patience for now. Next week looks more promising.
The role of mediator may fall to you this week, Virgo, because you have the best chance of coming up with the most workable solutions. Whatever you come up with will probably be simple, practical and firmly based on real world values. Your ability to focus is quite good now.
Striking a balance between argumentative family members and your partner could be very challenging now, Libra. You probably won’t be too thrilled about it either. Control issues are the most likely source of contention and those may not be easily resolved. Drat! Be patient, brighter days are just around the corner.
Like Taurus, Scorpio, you need to be careful about choosing relationships that offer more security than passion. The thing is you know that won’t work for you in the long run. By the way, your words could have an extra edge to them this week, so take care not to slice and dice your nearest and dearest.
Here’s the thing, Sagittarius, you have another week of sitting on the sidelines and watching before you get to have a little fun again. While there are fewer distractions, you might as well sit down and review your financial situation. This is not the best time to take gamble either.
The first part of this week, Capricorn, may drive home to you the need to accept with how angry you end up feeling when you have dealings with some of your family. This has the potential to turn into a major obsession, so you may want to think long and hard about your choices.
Once again, Aquarius, choosing your words with care could be critical, especially midweek. If you are unhappy about the lack of progress in your chosen profession right now, please be patient because this situation won’t last forever. Keep slogging away for now. Next week your interest in socializing may revive.
As much as you may like to do some traveling now, Pisces, it may not be possible. Unexpected expenses midweek may prevent you from attending a social function with your associates much to your regret. The feeling of being put on hold begins to ease over the weekend.
