ORGANIZE: WE HAVE WORK TO DO. Even though this next month is laced with hol­i­day prepa­ra­tions, we need to make good use of an un­usu­ally com­pe­tent and in­dus­tri­ous time. Work can be ther­a­peu­tic, but it may not cre­ate the most emo­tion­ally in­ti­mate en­vi­ron­ment. Mars in col­lec­tive Aquarius keeps us fo­cused on pub­lic or shared goals; Venus in Capricorn can leave us de­pressed if we feel use­less but may loan us courage and de­ter­mi­na­tion if we’re work­ing to­ward a clear goal.

There will be a lot of “truth” slung about with Mer­cury now in out­spo­ken but not in­tro­spec­tive Sagittarius, where it en­cour­ages us to be hon­est, di­rect, and sen­si­ble — and po­ten­tially tact­less. What we see as truth may only be a par­tial pic­ture.

We may not be not think­ing too clearly as Fri­day be­gins and may feel vul­ner­a­ble as thought­ful Mer­cury squares sen­si­tive Nep­tune un­der a Can­cer moon. The moon heads into more ex­tro­verted, out­go­ing Leo through the week­end. We may be­gin to let go of some of the ten­sion of the last few months and ram­ble, gos­sip, share notes, laugh, or pray to­gether; we may also re­mem­ber some­thing key about who we are and where we want to go in the fu­ture.

On Mon­day the en­er­giz­ing sun joins thought­ful Mer­cury in Sagittarius and be­gins the hol­i­day sea­son. Mid­week we may have too many pots boil­ing on the stove, with in­ter­ests spread far and wide. A Mer­cury-Saturn con­junc­tion can help us hold on; we just have to be care­ful about what we hold on to. Our brains per­se­ver­ate, and while this en­cour­ages us to fin­ish re­ports, it can also make us worry deep into the night.

Though we’re work­ing to achieve our goals, we may feel those goals tested as Jupiter squares Pluto this week, high­light­ing a wran­gling for power. We have the po­ten­tial to make great changes in the weeks ahead but need pa­tience to get the tim­ing right.

FRI­DAY, NOV. 18: Peo­ple may feel cranky and tired of mak­ing adjustments un­der a self-pro­tec­tive Can­cer moon. We need to talk out our feel­ings but be­ware of in­ap­pro­pri­ately pro­ject­ing them on oth­ers as Mer­cury squares Nep­tune. Watch for spilling liq­uids and fact-check all as­sump­tions. Re­lax tonight. SATUR­DAY, NOV. 19: We’d love some magic to­day as Venus sex­tiles Nep­tune. We may feel un­usu­ally warm­hearted and ad­ven­tur­ous and me­an­der spon­ta­neously into in­trigu­ing gath­er­ings. Keep the sched­ule loose and en­gage in heart-open­ing or vista-ex­pand­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties. SUN­DAY, NOV. 20: Revel in con­nec­tions and in­sti­gate ways to make the fu­ture bet­ter as the moon in Leo forms a grand trine with Saturn (sta­bil­ity) and Uranus (trans­for­ma­tion). Be the source of change. MON­DAY, NOV. 21: We’re called back to work, but it can be hard to con­cen­trate with new plans and re­ac­tions ex­plod­ing like pop­corn. We may feel dis­tracted by too much in­for­ma­tion and that can make us ner­vous un­der an in­dus­tri­ous Virgo Moon. Pri­or­i­tize and stay on track. TUES­DAY, NOV. 22: Lines of com­mu­ni­ca­tion open up as Mer­cury sex­tiles Jupiter. Many fac­tors bounce off one an­other; and a nervy, wor­ried edge can bring out stress-re­lated hu­mor. WEDNES­DAY, NOV. 23: Make de­ci­sions as Mer­cury con­juncts Saturn. We may feel ner­vous in the morn­ing but have the where­withal to crunch num­bers and catch up on emails. This af­ter­noon a Libra moon stirs a de­bate on what is fair, eq­ui­table, and le­gal. THURS­DAY, NOV. 24: We make progress this morn­ing but may see ev­i­dence of new plot twists and strange power trips as Pluto squares Jupiter. Mid­day can bring an emo­tional roller coaster; let’s be there for one an­other.
