(or stay up late) and com­mune with our plan­e­tary neigh­bors, Venus and Mars, now waltz­ing just be­low Jupiter in the east. They’re to­gether in Li­bra, the sign of ro­mance, art, and so­cial jus­tice, and they ask us to cre­ate beauty wher­ever we go.

Al­though this is gen­er­ally a fo­cused and hard-work­ing month, with the sun and Mer­cury in in­tense and scrappy Scor­pio, we can feel a more ide­al­is­tic un­der­cur­rent seep in this week and re­mind us that friend­ships can blos­som and small groups of ded­i­cated peo­ple can make a dif­fer­ence.

Venus and Mars to­gether can heat up both our ro­man­tic thoughts and our per­sonal expectations. But with Mer­cury now in Scor­pio, it’s tricky to ex­press our vul­ner­a­bil­ity. We may ex­pect an­other per­son to make the over­ture while they wait for us, and both can be dis­ap­pointed. Be direct and con­sid­er­ate, be­cause that Scor­pio also can make us un­usu­ally pas­sive-ag­gres­sive if we feel dis­re­spected.

The week­end be­gins un­der a friendly, out­spo­ken Sagit­tar­ius moon. Let’s laugh more and work less, or take the work out­side and re­fill our wells so our health stays strong in this in­dus­tri­ous month. Early next week we can feel some tension be­tween our work and our need to so­cial­ize, be­tween prag­ma­tism and beauty. Let’s just watch that we don’t take the stress out on one an­other.

FRI­DAY, NOV. 13: The mood can seem deceptively sim­ple, but we’re work­ing on so many lev­els. Frank and con­fi­dent hon­esty clar­i­fies some mis­per­cep­tions, but do not tell se­crets; trust is para­mount. Enjoy a friendly ca­ma­raderie.

SATUR­DAY, NOV. 14: Over­work may catch up with us; no­tice where we’re overex­tended and un­wind to recharge. More than rest, we need to play. Tonight we may get more se­ri­ous, but the evening may be en­joy­able if we pri­or­i­tize ex­pe­ri­ence and not per­fec­tion.

SUN­DAY, NOV. 15: Talk about up­com­ing plans, whether for the hol­i­days or for life as we know it un­der this in­tel­li­gent, or­ga­nized Capri­corn moon. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion can snag with our dear ones; lis­ten and prac­tice great re­la­tion­ship skills, which will ac­tu­ally save time in the long run.

MON­DAY, NOV. 16: The mood is a bit grim and fo­cused, but with an un­der­ly­ing friendly vibe. We’re driven by our goals and called to work to­gether; or­ga­nize and team-build si­mul­ta­ne­ously. If peo­ple have a slightly fran­tic look in their eyes, do not dis­miss their tension; find out what’s press­ing on them and ad­dress con­cerns.

TUES­DAY, NOV. 17: Our thoughts trans­late into ac­tion eas­ily as a con­ge­nial Aquar­ius moon trines Venus and Mars. The day brings po­lit­i­cally savvy but in­ter­per­son­ally awk­ward mo­ments, as if we can see far away but not up close. Watch a ten­dency to use charm to ma­nip­u­late for per­sonal gains.

WED­NES­DAY, NOV. 18: Some il­lu­sion or un­cer­tainty be­gins to clear up as Nep­tune turns direct, but watch for stalling storm sys­tems and philoso­phies. We may find it un­usu­ally chal­leng­ing to walk our talk and tempt­ing to take shortcuts, but in­tegrity brings re­wards.

THURS­DAY, NOV. 19: Pay at­ten­tion to dreams to­day as the moon en­ters in­tu­itive Pisces. We may feel too sen­si­tive to deal with any­thing else but our art sup­plies. Rad­i­cal acts of kind­ness and com­pas­sion need to be our art form.
