Your horoscope for November 16 to 22, 2017

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Intense days continue, but look to Thursday’s Venus/Neptune and Friday’s Mercury/Neptune to finish the workweek with ease and profit. Aim for money, productivity, entertainment, a close encounter, or deeper understanding; both days deliver the goods. Invest your time, your money, your heart; the more you put into it, the more you’ll get out of it. Hold a conversation or negotiation with yourself or another. What’s spoken, created, or undertaken holds significant impact.

      Whether you feel it in an obvious or subtle way, Saturday’s new moon in Scorpio and Sunday’s Mars/Pluto fuel the next get-on-it wave. USA Thanksgiving, Christmas around the corner: the holidays and all that they entail are soon upon us.

      Sunday’s Mars/Pluto begins the last quarter of a cycle that began in October of 2016 and ends in April of 2018. This cycle has set a reality into play. What has been built serves the evolutionary mandate in one of two ways: as a platform for further development and growth or as experience to learn from. It has outserved its usefulness; there is no purpose to extending the contract.

      Mars/Pluto are now at a critical-evaluation, move-it and/or shift-it phase that will extend through the spring. The best you can do for now is to feel your way along, to keep monitoring what’s happening out there—and inside of you, too.

      The week ahead is an opportune one. Putting everything on the upswing, the sun enters Sagittarius on Tuesday night. On Wednesday, Neptune ends its five-month retrograde tour. You may feel Neptune as a clearing-away or clarifying transit.

      March 20 - April 20

      Creativity, conversation, and/or a juicy prospect keeps you going strong through new-moon weekend. Shifting the momentum, Sunday’s Mars/Pluto places you at a psychological turning point or actual move-along. Aim to stay a step ahead; it is time, energy, or money well spent. Thursday/Friday and Monday/Tuesday are optimum for hitting it full-swing and making the most of it.

      April 20 - May 21

      The next few days are ideal for getting your sexy on. You won’t be sitting on the sideline for this one. Thursday/Friday sets you up for a deeper dive. Everything you say, do, witness, or get drawn into creates a significant impact or impression. Listen to your intuition; go with what is most compelling. Now through next week, aim to seize every advantage.

      May 21 - June 21

      The work or working it out could be all-consuming, but you can rely on Venus/Neptune and Mercury/Mars to keep it on a productive, lucrative, and fluid track. Creative solutions are your best bet. The stars help you to stay quick on the ball, to be an astute shopper and decision maker. Monday/Tuesday, you’re off to a great start.

      June 21 - July 22

      Through Saturday, passion and/or obsession is written all over you. You have extra sway; make your power play. Something to convey or someone to charm/convince? By all means, put your heart and soul out on show. The new moon supports you to launch it or to get a better hold over it. A full-to-the-brim, mostly smooth-running week lies ahead.

      July 22 - August 23

      Wrapping up the week, playing it smart, making the most of it, your next power play: the stars keep you all-consumed. Family, finances, a home or personal renovation project occupy time, heart, and mind too. The whole week ahead is opportune for setting wheels in motion. Go by feel; watch for each moment to take on a life of its own.

      August 23 - September 23

      You’ll take it in much deeper now. Your radar, focus, and ability to retain information are at peak. You’ll read folks and situations, and home in on it, with great precision. Thursday/Friday is optimized for studies, tests, negotiations, number-crunching, and problem-solving, for building up the sexy or the intrigue. Mutual attraction is very strong too. Sunday onward, it’s onto next, pronto.

      September 23 - October 23

      There’s no place better to be than right where you are. The stars have signed you up for the total-immersion program, especially Thursday/Friday. Is it a health obsession? So long as it is in your greater-good interest, let that compelling drive, desire, or objective serve as your power tool. Now through next weekend delivers the best the stars have to offer.

      October 23 - November 22

      Go subtle; go strong; go sexy; go smart. Right feel, right touch, right time. Thursday/Friday, you are a dynamo in action. Make the most of it while the getting is optimized! Your ability to say, sell, convey, captivate, or persuade is at peak. Sunday brings a momentum or attention shift, but the stars continue to keep the goods going strong for the week ahead.

      November 22 - December 21

      Hiding out, out of sight, or away from it all suits you well Thursday/Friday. Take quality time to conjure, explore, create, heal, or relax. The end of the week is also optimized for intimate bonding, soul-searching, and planning. Saturday onward, you’ll be in the mood to resurface and to plug into something fresh. A full-to-the-brim, smooth-going week lies ahead.

      December 21 - January 20

      Stay the course, or make a change; Thursday/Friday, wherever you go, whatever you do, it’s a great fit. Research, a conversation, negotiation, meet-up, or trial run gives you plenty more to go on. A penetrating insight or an advantage is a springboard to more. Sunday through Wednesday keeps you going strong and hitting it just right.

      January 20 - February 18

      Thursday/Friday could pile it on you but, overall, you should feel/find that you can keep it under good control. In fact, go by feel; follow intuition; do what turns you on and you will master the moment. Saturday’s new moon and Sunday’s Mars/Pluto are good for starters. The new week sets you onto a fresh upswing.

      February 18 - March 20

      Something special to look forward to? Moving, travel, or a happy-making prospect on your mind? The stars keep you consumed with looking and planning ahead. Thursday to Saturday keeps you wrapped up in it. Sunday, you’re onto the next phase or item on the checklist. It’s all good. For the most part, the going is easy.
