I know that these last few weeks have felt a bit heavy. As well they should have been. We had a couple of eclipses that were in a stressful aspect to Pluto or Mars. You probably feel like something’s been pushing you where you just want to rebel at times but can’t identify what that something really is! There is relief this week as transiting Venus enters Libra (which she loves) on Wednesday November 8 and transiting Mercury enters outspoken Sagittarius on Friday November 10. Both these planets bring a modicum of relief to the heavy pressures of Mars in Scorpio running with the Sun in Scorpio. You may take some time to think about taking a few days off to visit old friends or going away on a little staycation because you’ve done the work – now it is time to balance it out with a little more fun.
Over the course of these last two weeks Mars and Jupiter have been opposing each other which may count for some overspending on your part. Overindulgent behavior shifts as Mars moves past the opposition to Jupiter. The positive side of this recent opposition is that some inspiring visions may have appeared and then the quandary as to how to attain them faces you. This is where Friday’s ingress of Mercury into Sagittarius helps. Mercury is the cosmic salesperson. In the sign of Sagittarius, whatever you need to pitch for your business, requires an element of fun and gamesmanship as part of the pitch. People are tired of being sad and depressed. Mercury in Sagittarius conveys more optimism and wit.
What thoughts or ideas can you offer to inspire or teach or frame someone’s thinking in a new and unique and fun way? As Mercury enters Sagittarius on November 9, it begins a square to transit Saturn in Pisces remaining active through the first of next week. The combination of Mercury in Sagittarius and Saturn in Pisces affords an opportunity to focus on an idea that has a vision but also needs legs. The few days going into the weekend might be an exciting time to hammer out some ideas on how to make things work that weren’t able to work in the recent past.
