November 18: Moon in Leo square Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio
Listen First, Listen Second
Internal or interpersonal tensions that have yet to bubble up to the surface are likely to boil as Mars spends his final day in tropical Libra and the moon squares retrograde Mercury. While there is a desire to connect with others, it’s more likely that communication snafus, over-personalizing our differences, or aggressive forms of communication will make it harder to sort everything out. If you brave the interpersonal waters, practice radical listening as if your life depended on it. Sometimes it’s hard to get our own point across, and we’re better off receiving the thoughts and feelings of others.
If there are arguments you need to craft, though, take your time and be sure to cover all of the angles. Then sleep on it.
Mercury is in position to set us up for a wacky week of miscommunications and miniature snafus, and he’ll borrow from the internal heat Mars is generating today just to laugh at how readily we’re willing to lose our cool.
