Watch for communication snafus, misunderstandings, confusion and deception this week, for anything that transpires will take time to unravel! First, profound disagreements cause arguments as the Sun quincunxes Jupiter on November 6. Later that same day, Mercury turns retrograde, when communication glitches and indecision cause problems. Neptune then turns direct on November 10, at which point you'll have difficulty separating fact from fiction.
November 6: The Sun quincunxes Jupiter
This is an aspect of social discord. The Scorpio Sun is powerful, secretive, intense and wants to transform existing conditions. Jupiter in Gemini is interested in ideas -- a data-collector with lots to say. Today, you may feel as if you're witnessing two different universes with nothing in common. Some will try to strong-arm others into believing what they believe; others will seek ways to bridge gaps. Either way, this is not a calm, harmonious day.
November 6: Mercury turns retrograde in Sagittarius
Whenever Mercury turns retrograde, misunderstandings are plentiful. Equipment related to communication -- such as computers, phones, even voting machines -- have a tendency to break down. When Mercury retrogrades in Sagittarius, people argue about ethics, morals and who's right and wrong. And when Mercury changes direction on the day of a USA Presidential election (as it did in 2000), things take time to sort out. Since this is an infamous time for people to make mistakes, carefully weigh any pros and cons before making important decisions or signing contracts. If possible, avoid buying communication-related products; if you do make a purchase, be sure to keep your receipt. Traveling today? Be sure to double-check your reservations. If you know which house or houses in your birth chart through which Mercury is traveling, apply this review to that area of your life. Mercury turns direct on November 26.
November 10: Neptune turns direct
Confused? Neptune rules not only your dreams, but also your fantasies and illusions. Whenever Neptune changes direction, logic goes out the window and imagination is emphasized. Make sure right now that you don't accept anything you hear without double-checking facts. This is often a time when it's difficult to see things clearly, so naturally, this makes you vulnerable to deception. That said, this is a good time to invest in your goals! On June 4, Neptune turned retrograde in Pisces on the day of a dramatic lunar eclipse in Sagittarius. Your beliefs and ideals were highlighted then, and you were urged to strengthen your spiritual foundation and invest energy in attaining your dreams. Hopefully you have used Neptune's retrograde period well and are now ready to turn your dreams into reality!
