It’s time to get to the root
of a situation or deal with something that’s swept under the rug. We’re ready for change and may feel impatient about some facet of our lives as movement oriented-Mercury and action-packed Mars conjunct in Sagittarius and both square change-agent Uranus. It is tempting to leave, run for office, or make some other irrevocable change, but think it through first.
It’s easy to jump to conclusions under this aspect. We are impulsive, with occasional sprinkles of generosity. On a good day, this Mercury-Mars fire energy makes for some wild parties or long, spirit-filled rambles in the wild. Last-minute plans fall into place, and a refreshing honesty breaks through stuffiness.
Because impulse control is low, consider drinking less at parties. Although the mood can be generally cheerful if impatient, if we start ranting and belligerence kicks in, walk out temporarily and return with a more considered approach. While it may be tempting to quit and seek a geographical cure, do so only if needed; otherwise channel this urge into constructive changes.
This aspect gives us enthusiastic fuel once we know where we’re going but can leave us cranky or anxious if we feel blocked. Old family problems are easily brought to the surface; if someone we love triggers these, we should cut them some slack.
As the weekend begins, we have a chance to dream our storylines as Mercury sextiles Neptune. Make the most of a temporary spirit of compromise, but watch a tendency to compete for attention. Early next week, we want worthy challenges as muscular Mars squares Jupiter and increases our pugnaciousness. Midweek, get ready for a push at work as Venus enters intense Scorpio and Mercury enters industrious Capricorn. All week, we need to listen for the soul humming underneath the static.
Friday, Nov. 26:
Be generous as the Leo moon’s operatic quality heightens the profile of all ongoing stories. Evening is sane, interesting, and social; groups take the pressure off individual relationships. If alone, dream healing visions.
Saturday, Nov. 27:
A lovely sextile between Neptune, Chiron, and Mercury scatters fairy dust if we’re subtle enough to listen this morning. Later, we need a change of scene as Mercury squares Uranus, but put safety first. Evening is a great spontaneous party night if we don’t engage in belligerent comments.
Sunday, Nov. 28:
Attend to details that recenter our lives under a Virgo moon. Afternoon is empathic; if evening gets irritable, stand back. A fighting spirit combines with relationship obsessiveness for a volatile brew — direct it kindly.
Monday, Nov. 29:
We intensify as Mars squares Jupiter and Venus re-enters Scorpio. If we have worthy challenges to sink our teeth into, we won’t sink them into one another. We accomplish things in the afternoon and are irritated in the early evening as the moon squares Mars; later we can better analyze the situation.
Tuesday, Nov. 30:
Cooperate early on; later, let go of details and plan strategically as Mercury enters Capricorn. A weight on our soul reminds us what matters.
Wednesday, Dec. 1:
A thoughtful morning asks us to get involved in making serious decisions. There are positive negotiations midday as Mercury sextiles Venus; share from the heart this afternoon. Tonight, check teams and dreams to make sure all are on track.
Thursday, Dec. 2:
Being secretive and serious is not necessarily bad; it can be a way to pull in our energy and focus as the moon enters Scorpio. Psychic splinters may be working their way up to the surface and need gentleness as Mars sextiles Neptune.
