THIS IS A WEEK TO RE­OR­GA­NIZE, to see what’s re­ally im­por­tant to us and get on with the work. The sun and Mer­cury in Scor­pio give us fo­cus. It’s not that we for­get the past, but the plan­ets beg us to take the wis­dom and com­pas­sion we’ve gar­nered and use it to im­prove our present sit­u­a­tion.

Fri­day and early Satur­day the moon ap­proaches Pluto in Capri­corn and nudges us to worry about whether we are be­ing or do­ing enough. But laced through this dis­cour­age­ment is a new spark. We may even feel flashes of hope for the fu­ture as Venus in Sagit­tar­ius forms an ex­cit­ing trine to Uranus, which brings a sense of pos­si­bil­ity as it makes us dis­con­tent with what is ugly, un­fair, or dis­hon­est. We may dis­trust se­crecy just as Mer­cury and the sun in Scor­pio en­cour­age pri­vacy, which is a para­dox.

This rest­less­ness, this de­sire to leave what is only OK and search for some­thing bet­ter, can get us in trou­ble ro­man­ti­cally — but it can also help us re­al­ize that we need to be part of the so­lu­tion. With the cre­ative cu­rios­ity of the Venus-Uranus trine, we may want to try on a new look, re­ar­range the fur­ni­ture, paint with a new medium, or ex­plore a dif­fer­ent role for women in the cul­ture.

The moon in Capri­corn on Fri­day and Satur­day brings us back to our per­sonal work and keeps us in­dus­tri­ous. Mars spends the last few days of the cy­cle in Capri­corn over the week­end, so let’s use that pro­ject­man­age­ment fo­cus to take care of ne­glected per­sonal busi­ness.

The sun sex­tiles Pluto on Mon­day and asks us to both tend our longterm goals and get a bet­ter pic­ture of what’s been go­ing on around the world. Mars en­ters Aquar­ius on Tues­day, turn­ing our at­ten­tion to­ward the com­mu­nity — to what our fam­ily, tribe, or team needs — and ask­ing us to bal­ance this with a resur­gence of per­sonal feel­ings as the moon en­ters sen­si­tive Pisces.

FRI­DAY, NOV. 4: Stay on tar­get this morn­ing; strike while the iron’s hot, but avoid con­trol­ling be­hav­ior. By din­ner­time, we will need a hu­man con­nec­tion to wake up our non-work selves.

SATUR­DAY, NOV. 5: Emo­tions swing as the moon con­juncts Pluto and in­ten­si­fies our hopes and fears. Venus trines Uranus and asks us to open our hearts and seek the way of beauty. To sup­port a re­la­tion­ship, take the beloved off to ex­plore new ter­ri­tory.

SUN­DAY, NOV. 6: Kick back, re­con­nect, and build com­mu­nity as the moon en­ters Aquar­ius. We may have a strange ap­proach-avoid­ance con­flict around re­la­tion­ships; try to bal­ance the needs of the col­lec­tive and the per­sonal. MON­DAY, NOV. 7: Poignancy hov­ers and the deeper is­sues in life linger as the sun sex­tiles Pluto and nudges us to make the most of our­selves. Para­doxes abound: we may feel lonely for par­tic­u­lar peo­ple or emo­tions but may not re­ally want to get too close to the peo­ple around us. TUES­DAY, NOV. 8: Reach out this morn­ing while peo­ple are feel­ing so­cia­ble. We grow more sen­si­tive as the moon en­ters Pisces mid­day and may get touchy by af­ter­noon. WED­NES­DAY, NOV. 9: Con­tact dis­tant friends and strangers and honor a de­sire for new in­for­ma­tion and ter­ri­tory. Ex­pect mixed mes­sages within and with­out, and ex­plore that am­bi­gu­ity. Bal­ance in­ti­macy and free­dom, re­la­tion­ship and pol­i­tics. THURS­DAY, NOV. 10: We can use de­tailed work to help us shift through free-float­ing emo­tions. The mood grows more so­cially awk­ward and antsy this af­ter­noon as the moon squares Venus and en­ters Aries. Tonight, new ideas per­co­late and old tem­pers boil quickly.
