THE EN­ERGY THIS WEEK is com­pe­tent and forth­right but also an emo­tional roller coaster. Feel­ings are raw as Venus con­juncts Pluto, tact­less­ness abounds with ver­bal Mer­cury in out­spo­ken Sagittarius, and our com­pet­i­tive streak is strong as feisty Mars trines ex­pan­sive Jupiter at the end of the week.

Venus con­juncts Pluto the day af­ter Thanks­giv­ing, and we are made aware of how hard it is to love in the face of loss, be it political or per­sonal. Loss, op­pres­sion, em­pow­er­ment, and re­birth are all as­pects of Pluto — and we can choose which one we tune into with our Venu­sian hearts.

Thanks­giv­ing week­end ac­ti­vates the annual Sagit­tar­ian fam­ily minis­eries abound­ing with the break­throughs and dif­fi­cul­ties that are cre­ated when peo­ple speak their minds; with gen­tle hon­esty, we can get down to a place of true grat­i­tude. Feel­ings are ten­der, opin­ions are en­trenched, and hope is oxy­gen. Let’s think care­fully about our goals if we’re deal­ing with friends and rel­a­tives.

As Mer­cury pulls away from a con­junc­tion to Saturn over the next week, we still have as­tro­log­i­cal sup­port to be ef­fi­cient and can feel a sense of ur­gency about our work or com­mu­nity in­volve­ment.

The moon heads to sharp-edged Scorpio for the week­end; ev­ery­one will need some time alone in their own cor­ners. If poked, peo­ple may reach out and sting. On Monday morn­ing, let ev­ery­one catch up on emails and get ori­ented, and then be­gin to re­con­nect in the af­ter­noon.

Tues­day starts a fresh chap­ter with an en­er­giz­ing new moon in Sagittarius. We crave dif­fer­ence and travel and want to feel hope­ful about the future: It’s time to launch new plans and keep the con­ver­sa­tion go­ing. As the sun squares con­fus­ing Nep­tune later in the week, we can un­der­stand what’s hap­pen­ing to­day very clearly; the future, though, is murky. The best way to build the future is to work here in the present, one foot in front of the other.

FRI­DAY, NOV. 25: The Libra moon helps us get along, but we can feel a weight on our souls as Venus con­juncts Pluto. We need to find a way to love no mat­ter what. Large waves of emo­tion swell up and down, but we can choose where we steer the ship of our heart.

SATUR­DAY, NOV. 26: The moon en­ters a soli­tary Scorpio, and con­ver­sa­tion grows more pointed. Mer­cury trines Uranus and sharp­ens de­bate. Fo­cus on solv­ing prob­lems rather than defin­ing dif­fer­ence.

SUN­DAY, NOV. 27: Morn­ing can be ir­ri­ta­ble as the moon squares Mars; we may dif­fer on pri­or­i­ties and need to trust one an­other to find our way. Af­ter­noon of­fers more warmth and ac­cep­tance.

MONDAY, NOV. 28: Give peo­ple a chance to re­turn from their “va­ca­tion­mind.” Af­ter a wan­der­ing morn­ing, we grow rest­less and want to ac­com­plish some­thing as the moon en­ters Sagittarius in the af­ter­noon. Re­con­nect to­day; ini­ti­ate to­mor­row.

TUES­DAY, NOV. 29: Start a new chap­ter un­der this morn­ing’s new moon. Cre­ative Venus trines Uranus and in­spires us to shift gears and change ev­ery­thing. Don’t throw out what’s work­ing; in­stead, turn this rest­less­ness to­ward what’s not. Bond over travel sto­ries and a ruth­lessly hon­est sense of hu­mor. WED­NES­DAY, NOV. 30: Get to know a stranger. Peo­ple are open to new pos­si­bil­i­ties and crave in­for­ma­tion from the out­side world but can project their hopes and fears onto one an­other. Rein in pro­jec­tion and con­firm facts; do per­sonal home­work first. THURS­DAY, DEC. 1: Get back to work as the moon en­ters am­bi­tious Capricorn and feisty Mars trines ex­pan­sive Jupiter. Keep an eye on the big pic­ture. De­ci­sions will be made; let’s stay in­volved.
