Before you can escape the clutches of what has been a rather cosmically uncomfortable last seven days of November, it is important to run through today's gauntlet of challenges without losing your cool. While the Moon in Cancer forming a supportive, 60-degree link to Jupiter in Virgo (12:05AM) sounds fortuitous and encouraging, the lunar orb continues on to square Venus in Libra (4:47AM) and begin a 12-hour void-of-course Moon cycle that lasts until 4:48PM. This disconcerting lunar miasma may be the least of your problems since the Sun squares off with frequently illusory and deceptive Neptune (6:51AM) and then makes its yearly conjunction with often unforgiving, rules-of-the-road, ultra-responsible Saturn at 8 degrees of Sagittarius (4:17PM).
The combination of a void lunar uncertainty zone with two potentially shadow-producing solar misalignments reminds you to avoid any signings and agreements. Pull away temporarily from the psychic cacophony and socially-stressful, madding crowd to re-evaluate business, artistic, and educational objectives. The Moon's entry into fiery, heart-centered Leo (4:48PM) can be one firm step in the right creative and assertive direction.
However, the red planet Mars -- which hasn't been too celestially obnoxious and volatile during the last four days --- adds a touch of inflammatory behavior across the board via a square of 90-degrees to knowledge-holder and wisdom-keeper Pallas (10:10PM). Apply your genius to playing games like chess and backgammon rather than attempting to solve difficult familial problems that could leave you mentally exhausted and emotionally drained.
