THE PLAN­ETS SEND US BACK IN­SIDE for per­sonal home­work. Thought­ful Mer­cury is ret­ro­grade, and both Mer­cury and Venus en­ter in­tro­spec­tive, re­served Scor­pio this week­end. This can pull us in­ward and ask us to re­view the woes of the world. We feel deeply but may not show it. Mer­cury ret­ro­grade can model our think­ing, and this, with the strong Scor­pio pri­mal emo­tions, can stir the specter of jeal­ousy and re­venge. Ac­ti­vat­ing Mars, now in gen­tle Pisces, can make us less likely to act upon it. Scor­pio calls us to pro­duc­tive soli­tude, but that doesn’t mean iso­la­tion. This week’s mood is great for re­search and ther­apy; let’s give our ob­ses­sive fo­cus a healthy place to go.

Fri­day be­gins on a rel­a­tively up­beat note, though a low-level worry can nag us. On Satur­day a so­cia­ble Libra moon brings our at­ten­tion to re­la­tion­ships, but let’s not over­load them with any on­go­ing ex­is­ten­tial angst. On Sun­day and Mon­day, play ex­tra safe as the sun squares Mars and in­creases our ir­ri­tabil­ity and propen­sity for ac­ci­dents. A brood­ing Scor­pio moon Mon­day through Wed­nes­day sharp­ens our fo­cus, sharp­ens tongues, and could re­veal se­crets from the past.

While our imag­i­na­tion cooks, a fog of con­fu­sion and mishaps could thicken on Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day. Re­mem­ber all good Mer­cury ret­ro­grade sur­vival skills: Con­firm all ap­point­ments and ask for clarification if some­one’s words are con­fus­ing. Check di­rec­tions and en­gines. Find the amuse­ment in mi­nor mishaps. Med­i­tate of­ten. Mer­cury turns di­rect on Thurs­day and en­ters up­beat Sagit­tar­ius the week af­ter; our win­ter ebul­lience re­turns.

FRI­DAY, NOV. 30: The mood is rest­less and cre­ative. The Virgo moon sharp­ens our cri­tique and anx­i­ety. Put re­la­tion­ships on a good foot­ing. Tonight, it fur­thers to in­dulge in the arts.

SATUR­DAY, DEC. 1: While the mood is gen­er­ally pos­i­tive, our minds may want to per­se­ver­ate on some un­fin­ished busi­ness. Mer­cury ret­ro­grades back into sus­pi­cious Scor­pio un­der a friendly moon in Libra. If some cer­tainty melts, don’t in­vest in the doubt.

SUN­DAY, DEC. 2: We can have a real chip on our shoul­ders by the end of the day as Venus en­ters Scor­pio and Mars and the sun square off. Be­cause Mars is presently now in Pisces and con­juncts Nep­tune, ag­gres­sion can come out pas­sive-ag­gres­sively. Some prob­lem that arose in Septem­ber or Oc­to­ber now needs work.

MON­DAY, DEC. 3: Peo­ple give the side-eye but don’t al­ways tell us what the prob­lem is as the moon en­ters Scor­pio. There is a lot go­ing on be­hind the scenes. It may take a while to see what’s brew­ing. This fo­cus helps where we have a clear goal and work to do. Lis­ten for dif­fi­cult news that will be heal­ing in the long run.

TUES­DAY, DEC. 4: We may still be in a snarky mood, but we can make steady progress with on­go­ing work. Morn­ing is pro­duc­tive but the af­ter­noon sleep­ily glazes us over. It’s best to avoid any place where speed and clar­ity are needed.

WED­NES­DAY, DEC. 5: Mul­ti­task­ing in­creases our risks. Have pa­tience. Fo­cus on per­sonal home­work and make progress on one thing at a time. When con­di­tions are con­fus­ing, slow down and con­cen­trate. The mood can lighten tonight as the moon en­ters Sagit­tar­ius and ap­proaches Jupiter.

THURS­DAY, DEC. 6: Place no or­ders to­day. Mer­cury turns di­rect this af­ter­noon and ap­pears to hold still this morn­ing. En­joy ca­ma­raderie. Take it slow and easy to­day, and feel the mo­men­tum pick up over the next few days. Be­gin to straighten out mis­un­der­stand­ings and get the ducks back in a row.
