This intense week begins with a dramatic solar eclipse in Scorpio on November 13, when secrets are revealed! As retrograde Mercury slips back into Scorpio, also on November 13, consider returning to old contacts and conversations. Then, when Saturn and Uranus form a quincunx aspect on November 15, events out of your control take center stage. And finally, invest in your goals once Mars enters Capricorn on November 16!
November 13: Solar eclipse in Scorpio
All solar eclipses mark an especially dramatic and important beginning. Use this time to make a fresh start and put everything you've got into furthering your goals and dreams. As you invest in your future, let go of anything that isn't working or has outlived its usefulness, whether it's an attitude or life situation that no longer fits who you are today. No sign is more intense and driven than Scorpio ... and few signs hold as many secrets. You won't be able to hide much, however, as this eclipse shines a big spotlight on what's hidden. For the most positive results, allow Scorpio's considerable passion and strength to inspire you to devote time and energy to anything you want to see become more important in your life. At the full Moon later this month, you'll have a chance to stand back and see what you've accomplished!
November 13: Retrograde Mercury re-enters Scorpio
On October 5, Mercury, the communication planet, entered intense Scorpio. Then last week, on November 6, Mercury turned retrograde in Sagittarius. Now, retrograde Mercury slips back into Scorpio, and you return to old conversations, ideas from the recent past and communication breakdowns that need to be resolved. You won't be able to move forward with your plans until the past is addressed. Information is available, but you'll have to dig around to find it. If you need help, enlist the support of others with insight that could help you. Most of all, don't make rash decisions based on deep feeling and little information. Once Mercury turns direct on November 26, you'll have all the information you need to move forward.
November 15: Saturn quincunxes Uranus
Something's got to give! No matter how strong and powerful you are, you can't control people who refuse to be controlled. Although you may be tempted to clamp down and enforce your rules, you can't stop the changes occurring all around you. Life always has a few curveballs for you, and the more you pay attention and work with -- rather than against -- change, the better off you'll ultimately be. Keep a level head today and you'll make good decisions!
November 16: Mars enters Capricorn
If you have a goal that requires loads of discipline, energetic Mars in the achievement-oriented sign of Capricorn will give you the drive and resourcefulness to make it happen! Don't delay, though, since next week Mars will tangle with the Uranus-Pluto square, an aspect that's sure to create a few bumps in the road. This week, make a to-do list and get going on it! If you commit to your plan and make any necessary tweaks and changes between now and November 26 (when Mercury turns direct), you'll get a great deal of things done!
