After a very rough start to November, this week’s astrology at least has a sense of humor. Mercury and Venus enter jovial Sagittarius on the 16th and 17th respectively, breaking up the harsh gridlock we’ve been experiencing in fixed signs over the last few weeks. Mercury in Sagittarius is the communication planet with very little filter so expect chaotic texts, meandering conversations and blunt (but hilarious) feedback at work and from friends. Venus in Sagittarius brings more freedom and levity to our connections. To channel the spirit of Scorpio Season with Mercury and Venus in Sagittarius, think: the gives zero fucks attitude of Jamie Lee Curtis who was born with these placements.
Despite the generally improved vibes though, Mars retrograde squares off with hazy Neptune yet again—the last time was October 12th—on the 19th, bringing the confusion, overwhelm and uncertainty we’ve been feeling all month to another uneasy peak. This influence remains in effect through early next year so it’s best to ride the wave, take it slow, and remember the anxieties and worries you’re feeling are likely temporary.
