Free Weekly Horoscope for your Sign
Aries: The plot thickens as Mars joins the Sun and retrograding Mercury in your house of secrets. Honesty is the best policy, and no matter how wary you might be of bringing something into the light, it is best in the long run if you do. You also need to demand the same of others. There is a very transformative element to your cosmic picture right now, so the best advice is to accept that sometimes things aren’t meant to stay the same. It’s probably not that relevant whether it’s you or a situation that needs to change; what matters is that you are willing to allow something to go so that something better can emerge.
Taurus: As Mars moves into your relationship zone, the tempo rises slightly (or greatly), potentially making this a tempestuous time in your personal life. If you can remember the importance of honest and open communication without using anger, you might be able to turn Mars’s warlike energy into something more positive, such as working together toward a shared goal. If you find yourself or others in an argumentative mood, you can be sure that Mars is revealing your frustrations; this is a clue that you need to channel your energy into a more productive direction. Look at how you can work with others rather than against them, but with Mercury still heading backward in this area, you’ll need to make a really conscious effort to keep things on an even keel.
Gemini: Progress and harmonious flow might still be lacking as Mercury continues its reverse motion, but the arrival of Mars in your daily life sector should be a big help, giving you more energy and motivation to get things done. Combined with retrograde Mercury, this could be a good thing if you’re ready and willing to sort out the mundane stuff. It might not feel very inspiring, but the more you can get done and the more organized you become, the better you will feel. It is less about making big progress and more about ironing creases and straightening crooked edges. This could relate to your health, work, routines, and habits, or your living space. Your life will function more effectively, which in turn will free up more energy and inspiration to do the things you really want to do.
Cancer: Fun, creativity and self-expression become more pronounced as Mars joins the Sun and Mercury, encouraging you to do more of what you love and less of what you don’t. Now is the time to commit to a creative project, generate more romance in your life, or simply do more of what you enjoy. The drive to express yourself in a more authentic manner will increase, so anyone trying to squeeze you into a box had better watch out. If something no longer fits – a job, relationship, situation, or way of being – it will be difficult to keep pretending. The good news is that the more you embrace your true self, the happier you’ll be.
Leo: The domestic theme continues as Mars enters the fray. The good news is that you will have greater motivation and energy to focus on whatever needs to be done, but you might need to watch out for things becoming heated. Mars could unleash some suppressed anger in relation to home or family, and it would be easy to overreact. Digging down deep to unearth certain truths about your home, your past, or your family could be time well spent, since you’re in an introspective phase when it pays to better understand yourself and your place in the universe. Questions such as these are relevant now: “Where do I feel rooted?” “What makes a house feel like a home?” “What is family to me?” “How can I move on from childhood issues?” Ask whichever question has the most relevance for you, and work with it.
Virgo: Your desire to be busy and get moving could face impediments that seem hell-bent on thwarting you. This could be a week high on frustration, and you might need to watch for bursts of irritation and anger. You will likely have a lot to say, and this is a good time to communicate, especially if you have a message to get across. However, with the potential frustrations, it would be wise to watch your tongue. Remember the old Arab proverb: “When you shoot an arrow of truth, dip its point in honey.”
Libra: The financial theme continues but the good news this week is that Mars enters the picture, giving you a whole load of motivation and enthusiasm to change things for the better. Now you can easily earn more, create more opportunities for money to flow your way, or resolve any outstanding financial issues. In more good news, Venus edges closer to lucky Jupiter, suggesting a stroke of good fortune is on its way. Harness this positive potential by expecting good things and adopting a can-do attitude regarding money and material matters. Perhaps you need to find better ways to utilize your talents. As Pablo Picasso said, “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.”
Scorpio: The good news this week is that Mars enters your sign on November 19, making this the beginning of a much more dynamic and proactive phase. If there’s anything you want to do, now is the time to do it, but Mercury is still backtracking through your sign until November 20, so the time to spring into action isn’t quite yet. Perhaps the best use of these conflicting energies in your sign is to think, plan, and wait until it feels right to start pressing forward. This will be in another few days, so use this week to get clear about where you want to head, and make any necessary tweaks and adjustments to your trajectory. Once you start moving, there’ll be no stopping you.
Sagittarius: As Mars joins the Sun and retrograde Mercury in your house of quiet contemplation, you could hardly be blamed if you’re not firing on all cylinders. If tiredness creeps in, the solution is to rest and do less. It might also be worth looking at whether your activities inspire and excite you, for Uranus in your work and everyday-life zone suggests your health is not great if you’re not excited to get out of bed each morning. Find whatever makes you zip with enthusiasm and go do it, but discovering that could be easier said than done. This is where turning within comes in. Pay attention to the messages in your dreams, the places where your imagination leads you, and the responses you feel in your body when you think about certain things. If you think about an aspect of your life, for example, and your energy drops, you know it’s time for a change.
Capricorn: Life is about to get interesting. Jupiter hovers on the edge of your sign preparing for its grand entry, and Mars joins the Sun and Mercury in your zone of the future. Giving attention to what you would like to happen in your life will be time well spent, because it’s unlikely things are going to stay the same for much longer; it’s better if you are in the driver’s seat rather than a passive passenger. Whether you realize it or not, your power is increasing, and the decisions you make now and over the coming weeks and months will be vitally important. Think about how you would like your life to be, and start to put a plan in motion.
Aquarius: As the planets stack up in your career zone, it’s time to consider what success means to you. It might help to find a quote that resonates, but here is a good one particularly for Aquarius: “To freely bloom – that is my definition of success.” What’s the point of success and achievement if you feel burdened or trapped? What’s the point if you’re not free to come and go as you please or do your own thing? You have the power now to make some big changes and forward movements in your life, but you need to make sure you move in the direction that feels right. Don’t be afraid to make changes that resonate with your heart and soul. It will be worth it in the long run.
Pisces: The adventure theme continues as Mars joins the Sun and Mercury in your zone of expansion. Now is the time to bust out of your comfort zone and to be courageous in your attempts to be more than you were before, but with Mercury still retrograde until November 20, problems might require you to go back and dot the I’s and cross the T’s. Don’t be deterred, though, because this is an important time to break free of your previous limitations and soar in the skies of possibility. An optimistic spirit is dawning, showing you that life can be much more than it was before.
