The New Moon in Scorpio occurs on November 4 and is going to shake up our lives. The same day, rebellious Uranus, who is retrograde in Taurus, opposes the Sun, awakening our wildest sentiments. Mercury enters Scorpio on November 5, awakening our deepest desires and intuition. Tender Venus enters Capricorn on November 5 (Venus will be in Capricorn until March due to the upcoming retrograde). Mercury and Venus gently connect on November 6, heightening passions and sensualities.
This week demands TLC, as your power and desire may make you say things to those you care about that aren’t nice and kind. With impulsivity buzzing in the aether, it’s important that you think before about what you’re wanting to express before bluntly stating it to avoid intense confrontations.
It’s time to turn over a new leaf with those you care about. This means letting go of past issues and starting fresh. Allowing others the chance and opportunity to prove themselves to you will have positive effects on the relationship, as it will take you both to amazing heights.
Your mind is racing a million miles per minute and you are focusing on all of the things that need to get done instead of taking care of yourself. Don’t get too caught up in your own world that you forget to smell the roses — that’s important to do.
Romance is in the air, but this tender feeling may be short lived if you don’t let go of your relationship fears. You’re the one holding yourself back from your happily-ever-after ending. Instead of dwelling about past issues and arguments, focus on the present and lean into the good vibes.
Negative sentiments may hold you back from attaining your visions. If you are able to let go of the gloomy outlook, you’ll be able to change the way you feel. Don’t hold onto old fears and ways of thinking, they are only holding you back. Bring in a positive mindset.
Think of your heart as a garden that needs to be tended to regularly. The more love you give, the stronger this muscle becomes. However, it can easily be depleted of energy if it’s not cared for. Instead of giving unconditionally, make sure you’re receiving to balance out the energy.
Your confidence will be heightened, due to the fact that you’re shedding the fake exterior you put on for others to see and being true. Living from an authentic place and space will allow you to appreciate all the fabulous and unique things about yourself — which others will love.
Emotions are high this week, which is why it’s best to lower the flame and simmer down before confronting someone about a situation that upset you. Giving yourself time to chill out before asserting yourself will be helpful in allowing you to not elevate the energy on a combustible matter.
Biting your tongue in silence is hard for you to do, especially when you’re feeling as though others are being salty to you. This week, the words you choose as a defense mechanism can come out extra harsh, which is why it’s ideal to ignore all the haters and negativity.
Your reflective nature is making you look back at the past with a cynical heart and mind. Remember that what’s done is done. Let the lessons you’ve learned help you to become the best version of yourself, rather than using it as a crutch to not move on and grow.
Tensions in relationships will escalate, creating roadblocks that will require work. Instead of trying to break down walls to get through to others, try a little tenderness in your approach. You’ll be surprised by how far you can get if you change the way you handle yourself in emotional situations.
The pressure that you put on yourself to be perfect is causing you to experience burnout. Rather than taking on more projects, allow yourself to have some time to rest. If you’re exhausted then the quality of work you produce won’t be up to par and neither will your mindset.
