Pasatiempo - - STAR CODES -

as the week­end be­gins and the moon con­juncts talk­a­tive Mer­cury in out­spo­ken Sagit­tar­ius. A help­ful and warm­hearted trine be­tween Venus and Mars in chatty air signs helps us to open lines of com­mu­ni­ca­tion and make plans for the fu­ture. Just watch for a ten­dency to get com­pla­cent in those opin­ions.

But we don’t just talk about it — over the week­end, a won­der­fully com­pe­tent Capri­corn moon en­cour­ages us to fol­low through and do the work. Sun­day and Mon­day, we feel the de­sire to pick up our work where we left off a few weeks ago as the sun sex­tiles Pluto. Some peo­ple may wres­tle with the grim mood, but most of us can feel sat­is­fac­tion as we make progress.

Mid­week is good for team meet­ings and co­or­di­nat­ing plans for the com­ing hol­i­days. The Aquar­ius moon en­cour­ages co­op­er­a­tion, but our opin­ions may still be en­trenched. We may need to step away from na­tional and in­ter­per­sonal pol­i­tics and come back to our own emo­tional pro­cesses to­ward the end of the week as the moon and Mars en­ter sen­si­tive Pisces on Thurs­day.

Mer­cury ret­ro­grades from Nov. 18 to Dec. 7, so let’s work that into our hol­i­day prepa­ra­tions. Buy tick­ets and send out in­vi­ta­tions, but keep plans flex­i­ble to man­age un­ex­pected events. We may al­ready no­tice a whiff of con­fu­sion and un­cer­tainty as men­tal Mer­cury moves into a square with in­tu­itive, con­fus­ing Nep­tune at the end of the week. Peo­ple may feel like they have been jug­gling too much. Let’s choose those things that are most im­por­tant, and keep our eyes on them in the com­ing weeks.

FRI­DAY, NOV. 9: The mood is clear and so­cia­ble, but a sleepy spell looms. Look for in­ter­est­ing con­ver­sa­tions about old re­la­tion­ships and a chance to share in­ter­ests. Weave con­nec­tion as Venus and Mars trine in vol­u­ble air signs un­der an ad­ven­tur­ous Sagit­tar­ius moon.

SATUR­DAY, NOV. 10: It’s a good day for day trips, first dates, and good con­ver­sa­tion as the moon sex­tiles Venus and Mars. Honor the need to do things a lit­tle dif­fer­ently. If grumpi­ness seeps back in tonight, rest now and talk later.

SUN­DAY, NOV. 11: Don’t take grim­ness per­son­ally; many peo­ple are in a mood. But we can make that mood pro­duc­tive if we ask great ex­is­ten­tial ques­tions and then ap­ply the an­swers. Watch for is­sues about the chain of au­thor­ity as the sun sex­tiles Pluto.

MON­DAY, NOV. 12: We may need to come to terms with con­se­quences as the moon con­juncts Pluto. By af­ter­noon, the en­ergy can shift into a prac­ti­cal fu­ture-fo­cused ap­proach. Ask what is the next con­crete step that can get the ball rolling.

TUES­DAY, NOV. 13: Take a good in­ven­tory this morn­ing, re­assess the sched­ule, and see what needs to be changed based on re­cent shifts. A spate of ef­fi­cient ad­just­ments now will save time later on. The en­ergy level may drop; peo­ple need time to catch up with each other and get on the same page this af­ter­noon as the moon en­ters Aquar­ius.

WED­NES­DAY, NOV. 14: Peo­ple may be cheer­fully en­trenched in their opin­ions. Fuzzy think­ing be­gins to seep in as Mer­cury ap­proaches the square to Nep­tune; while this feeds our imag­i­na­tion, peo­ple can cling to their fa­vorite delu­sions and won’t ap­pre­ci­ate a wake-up call.

THURS­DAY, NOV. 15: Feel­ings may be ten­der and soft on the in­side and guard­edly prickly on the out­side as Mars en­ters Pisces and Mer­cury squares Nep­tune. Speak up for the dis­pos­sessed and help oth­ers man­age their fears. Take care of per­sonal vul­ner­a­bil­ity with­out at­tack­ing oth­ers. Put this avail­able ac­tive imag­i­na­tion to good use.
