Astrology Forecast for Creatives | Week of November 18, 2019 - our actions get more focused, Mercury is out of retrograde, clarity, optimism is attractive, Jupiter and Venus get rebooted, that luckiest day of the year thing, shocking developments

With two planets changing signs, Mercury stationing direct and our two benefic planets crossing the Galactic center AND meeting each other - we know this is a powerful week!

Personal and collective change and MEGA creativity is coming, folks.

TUESDAY - Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center, Mars into Scorpio
WEDNESDAY - Mercury stations DIRECT (11 degrees Scorpio)
FRIDAY - Sun into Sagittarius, Sun trines Chiron
SATURDAY - Venus conjunct the Galactic Center
SUNDAY - Venus conjunct Jupiter, Mars opposes Uranus

On TUESDAY, Mars moves into Scorpio (a sign he once ruled) until January 3rd. FINALLY out of his detriment in Libra, he (as us) moves into a much stronger position now.

Because Scorpio likes to pre-meditate, with Mars (action, initiative, passion, anger) here we will think about what we are going to do before we do it. And, yes, that sounds slightly criminal and mostly devious, but this is Scorpio we are talking about! Our actions become more focused. More intimate. No more Libran fence sitting.

This energy works pretty well with the wrap-up of Mercury's retrograde energy in Scorpio we have been dealing with since Halloween - re-do, re-visit, re-think, re-vamp, re-define.

We could be doing things in secret now, too. Shh!

Mars here can be good for our physical energy since Scorpio is continually re-generating itself. So, maybe we go to bed exhausted and drained, but somehow we still wake up ready to give the world another go. Or maybe we finally get used to the time change! WTH it makes me crazy.

Because Scorpio rules our 8th house of compulsions and obsessions we could find our actions driven by our impulses. If you find yourself caught in a loop - STOP - ask yourself - why am I doing this again? why am I so mad? why do I want this so badly? what am I really trying to do?

We can get alot done with Mars in Scorpio, let's just make sure it is stuff worth doing.

Scorpio is our fixed water sign. It's job is to strengthen our emotions. But fixed water is well, kind of fixed. Think frozen. Think concrete. Think quicksand. It can make it hard to change course if we get too emotionally wedded to whatever it is we are focused on. Stay flexible somehow.

This is a good time to take action with Scorpio ruled themes - other people's resources, debts, loans, inheritances, mortgages, taxes, insurance payments, intimacy, sex, reproduction, death issues, stuff that is dead in the water (or caught in the quicksand). With Mars blasting through this collective area we will have more energy, initiative and control over these subjects than we usually do.

Keep in mind we will also be more passionate about them and easier to anger. 

Mars in Scorpio moves toward an uncomfortable inconjunct (rock and a hard place) with Chiron in Aries - exact on Thursday. Old wounds around standing up for ourselves, being able to take care of ourselves, stuff that is outside our control, our wounded male warrior energy are triggered by our actions and those of other people. Intimacy/the merging of resources etc will come at a cost. Standing up for ourselves will come at a cost. No easy way through this (in play for a couple days).

Jupiter - making his way over the Galactic Center (seat of creation) reaches exactness now. And Venus will meet him here this week - what do we really believe is possible? Our beliefs are shifting as a brand new Jupiter heads toward his own conjunction with Saturn (in game-changer Aquarius) at the END of 2020.

On WEDNESDAY, Mercury stations direct - YAY!

Here is clarity. Forward momentum.

The final message of this retrograde season is delivered (or maybe it was delivered on Monday).

What has happened since Mercury first started covering her/his retrograde degrees in the middle of October - what resources have been co-mingled, what uncomfortable conversations were had or information/truth uncovered? what have we be going back and forth over? what death/rebirth?

We finally start moving forward again from this older and wiser position - keep in mind Mercury won't be covering entirely new ground until December 7th.

On FRIDAY, the Sun moves into "bigger is better" Sagittarius.

Travel, places outside our comfort zones, foreign issues or people, education (higher than what we have now), anything we are taking to a higher level, politics, religion, legal issues, weddings, the media and marketing -this is Sagittarius territory, Jupiter territory, our Sagittarius house theme will also get a great big fiery spotlight.

What we believe becomes much more important than what we know now.

There is a reason the season belongs to Santa Claus!

Jupiter (Sag ruler) at the Galactic Center as the Sun moves into Sagittarius is BIG news. What does our truth look like now? What do we really believe? So much has happened on the planet to show us that anything is possible.

But is that what we are seeing? Or are we seeing everything falling apart?

Remember so much inside us has changed since 2012 and the outer world has been struggling to catch up with us (yes, I know it looks like it is the other way around, but looks are deceiving here).

With the Sun in Sagittarius we will all be needing a little more freedom to wander and explore beyond our comfort zones into unknown places and spaces. The path we find ourselves on during these travels could be inhabited by unicorns and rainbows or stone throwing orks - either way we will need the faith to know that no matter what happens we will be OK.

The Sun in Sagittarius (we are all burning Sagittarius fuel now) truly makes that possible.

Now that the Sun has moved into Sagittarius he starts to trine (brakes off) Chiron in Aries. This is the warm healing balm we need for the pain triggered by our actions earlier in the week. Sag is the cure here - what house does Sagittarius rule in your natal chart? What is the theme of that house? A collective Sag theme will work, too - see the list under Friday.

On SATURDAY, it is Venus's turn to conjunct the Galactic Center. Creativity, love, money, our values and self-esteem are being re-activated/re-set - and then on

SUNDAY - Venus catches up to Jupiter. Some astrologers call this the luckiest day of the year. We are encouraged to have faith. We attract (Venus) what we want by our beliefs/enthusiasm (Jupiter). By stretching outside our comfort zone. MEGA-POTENTIAL. Happening in Jupiter's home sign immediately after both planets are recharged by their journey over the Galactic Center only powers this one up (plus we no longer have Jupiter's draining square to Neptune to deal with).

The fly in the ointment on Sunday is Mars moves into his opposition with Uranus. Power shifts. Financial disruptions. We will have to take care with this one and will talk about it more as we move through the week.

Back tomorrow with a deeper look at Tuesday as we factor in the Moon (void from 4:11PM EST to 8:54PM EST when she moves into practical Virgo).
