You may not know if you're coming or going this week as Venus enters Capricorn (where Venus will retrograde next month), Jupiter turns retrograde, and Mercury goes direct! First, you're ready to make a commitment as the love planet, Venus, enters serious Capricorn on November 5. Then, Jupiter begins its backward motion on November 6, when all those ambitious ideas you have for your life need a thorough review. At least some of your plans get the green light, however, as Mercury turns direct in Scorpio on November 10!
November 5: Venus enters Capricorn
Are you ready to stop wasting your precious time on people who aren't ready to commit? As the love planet leaves freewheeling Sagittarius to enter earthy Capricorn, it's time to make important decisions about who you want to invest in ... and who you need to let go. But, pace yourself! Venus will turn retrograde in Capricorn on December 21, returning you to unfinished conversations and people from your past. So, be prepared to have those serious conversations; just don't make up your mind quite yet, as plenty will be revealed over the coming months. You'll be ready to move forward with your decisions next year, when Venus turns direct on January 31 before finally entering Aquarius on March 5.
November 6: Jupiter turns retrograde
Are you thinking of fixing up your home, buying a new house, or expanding your family? When Jupiter entered Cancer on June 16, your attention turned to personal matters, family issues, and the security of your home and loved ones. Now as this big planet turns retrograde, you'll need to backtrack and review these very personal areas of your life. Expect momentum to be slowed -- or even halted -- during this retrograde period, set to last until March 6. Still, don't worry about plans and projects being delayed, as whatever is held back could turn out to be a blessing in disguise. In general, this is a time of curtailing excesses.
November 10: Mercury turns direct
Mercury turned retrograde in Scorpio on October 21, when your plans and agreements suffered delays. If you used the power of Scorpio to look into whether people have been giving you accurate information, you'll be in good shape now to make progress on your revamped projects. Over the next week, be ready to put the finishing touches on your plans and move forward with confidence!
