THE WEEK­END BE­GINS with an ex­cit­ing, if con­tentious, in­ter­ac­tion be­tween the sun and moon, both in Mars-ruled signs on Fri­day. If all goes well, we’ll just have ex­tra en­ergy; if we get cross­wise with one an­other, we can say things we’ll re­gret.

We may feel in­spired to work to­gether, but may be so ready to wran­gle about our philoso­phies that it’s chal­leng­ing: Feisty Mars is now in col­lec­tive, the­o­ret­i­cal Aquar­ius. Venus en­ters de­ter­mined Capri­corn on Satur­day and en­cour­ages us to re­con­nect with old friends or com­mu­ni­ties. To­gether they can help us, loaded with opin­ions as we may be, to or­ga­nize and build new work­ing part­ner­ships. With Venus in Capri­corn for the next few weeks, we may want to love our work even though we feel emo­tion­ally con­strained by it.

Mer­cury en­ters out­spo­ken Sagit­tar­ius Satur­day night, en­cour­ag­ing us to be hon­est, shoot from the hip, and tell it like we re­ally see it for the next few weeks. This free­dom-lov­ing Sagit­tar­ius Mer­cury can help us see a big­ger pic­ture and bal­ance out an in­tense Scor­pio pos­ses­sive­ness — a ter­ri­to­rial edge that helps us de­fend our wa­ter rights and re­la­tion­ships — that peaks early next week un­der an earthy Tau­rus full moon.

The as­tro­log­i­cal en­ergy set­tles into a more de­ter­mined groove af­ter Mon­day’s full moon and en­cour­ages us to work to­ward our long-term goals. We may feel a bit fuzzy­headed to­ward the end of the week as Mer­cury squares Nep­tune.

FRI­DAY, NOV. 11: The mood gets twitchy if our to-do list is too long; pol­i­tics in­flames tem­pers. Main­tain healthy bound­aries rather than bite back. Deal with one is­sue at a time, and don’t pile too much on the plate this af­ter­noon. Re­cen­ter and pri­or­i­tize tonight as Venus en­ters Capri­corn. SATUR­DAY, NOV. 12: Mer­cury en­ters Sagit­tar­ius this morn­ing and brings fresh hon­esty. Af­ter an un­set­tling or busy morn­ing, our en­ergy man­i­fests in spo­radic bursts. Fo­cus re­turns af­ter the wax­ing moon en­ters earthy Tau­rus this evening. It can feel good to be em­bod­ied: Feed the senses but keep clean bound­aries. SUN­DAY, NOV. 13: A stubborn full moon in Tau­rus this morn­ing ramps up all our bi­o­log­i­cal needs and de­sires and our stub­born­ness — but it can also help us plant our roots and ap­pre­ci­ate the patch of earth on which we live. En­joy a slow dance mid­day, a med­i­ta­tive spin­ning in place. MON­DAY, NOV. 14: We may be busy but still have trou­ble ac­com­plish­ing any­thing. Our minds are nervy or en­er­gized, while our bod­ies feel the post-full-moon en­ergy drain. Ac­tion picks up and the con­ver­sa­tion gains trac­tion tonight as the moon en­ters Gem­ini. TUES­DAY, NOV. 15: Let’s go ex­plor­ing but pace our­selves. Pre­pare for a shift in the plot line or odd twists of fate. Jug­gle the shift­ing bits and don’t lose track of what’s im­por­tant. Spirit is strong, but or­ga­ni­za­tion may be weak. Af­ter­noon brings clearer de­ci­sions and en­gaged con­ver­sa­tion, though we can be eas­ily dis­tracted as Mer­cury sex­tiles Mars.

WED­NES­DAY, NOV. 16: Morn­ing is busy, though it still brings more words than ac­tion. Old mem­o­ries arise and dis­tract us, while un­fin­ished wisps of karma tar­get us. Track care­fully if a spe­cific project needs to be ac­com­plished. Tonight, we need to re­turn to some­thing cozy and fa­mil­iar as the moon en­ters Can­cer.

THURS­DAY, NOV. 17: Don’t be sur­prised by mo­ments of so­cial awk­ward­ness as the Can­cer moon op­poses Venus; our in­ner de­ter­mi­na­tion or dis­com­fort can make us less diplo­matic. Check for mis­un­der­stand­ings be­fore feel­ings get hurt.
