Weekly Astrology Forecast for Creatives | Week of November 16 - November 23, 2020 - relationship challenges, one more surprise, consequences for going too far, reality checks



It's forward ho folks - note although Mars is direct now, it will take him a few days to get back up to speed. If you have anything near the middle of the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Cappy) - you will probably feel the push/pull of this the most!


We have Venus (home in Libra for just a few more days) hitting those last minute squares with the Cappy pile-up - reality checks - and opposing fiery Eris (me vs we) before diving (headfirst or maybe she will need to be dragged) into intimate Scorpio. Mercury will oppose anything-can-happen/future focused Uranus bringing one final bit of shocking news (!) and the Sun leaves Scorpio for the wider skies of Sagittarius. Keep in mind as Venus squares first Jupiter and then Saturn that something might appear better than it actually is for a bit leading to dashed hopes/a reality check/consequences later. 


Stay grounded. Do the right thing. Although direct now, Mars will be at the same degree until November 24th. Don't take too big a bite just yet.

MONDAY - Venus squares Jupiter and opposes Eris

TUESDAY - Mercury opposes Uranus (3rd time)

THURSDAY - Venus squares Saturn, Sun sextiles Saturn

SUNDAY - Sun into Sagittarius, Venus into Scorpio


On MONDAY - Venus in Libra squares Jupiter (in Cappy) and opposes Eris (in Aries) at 26 degrees.  If you have anything near 26 degrees in the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) - you will probably feel this strongest. 

Venus/Jupiter contacts are usually positive - even the frustrating square. But we can take something too far/expand too quickly/spend too much/want too much. With Venus set to hit restrictive Saturn after she gets past Jupiter (here's our lonely Thanksgivings in the U.S. folks) - something (relationship/career?) might seem to expand and then pull back. Overdoing might have consequences later. Stay grounded. Have hope. Have faith. But, keep one eye on that road block up ahead. Don't bet the farm. Don't overspend. Don't over-promise or depend too much on anyone else's.


Her opposition to fiery Eris - Goddess of Discord - at the same time speaks of the need to bring everyone to the table (even if the table is virtual and the faces on the screen stuffing themselves with cranberry sauce). Aries/Libra is a me vs we aspect. With an opposition from the firey "me" - we could be seeing someone else as selfish now. Keeping in mind the 'mirroring' structure of our relationships, there could be some important final lessons in Venus's last days in her home sign.

On TUESDAY - Mercury in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus at 8 degrees. Surprising news/information. Abrupt/unsettling conversations/announcements/decisions. This can also be a breakthrough/breakdown. Liberation. Due to Mercury's recent retrograde - we are still walking old degrees and not quite out of the woods here - this is their THIRD opposition. Third time's the charm/three strikes we're out. We had the first on October 7th and the second (retrograde - where we were going back over whatever came out near the 7th) on October 19th. This is the #unexpected, #notunexpected news/information coming out. This will have its feet in our Scorpio house theme or the collective themes of - other people's resources, other people's values, intimacy, other people's money, spouse's income, merged resources, loans, debts, taxes, inheritance, sex, reproduction.


On THURSDAY - Venus in Libra squares Saturn in Cappy at 27 degrees while the Sun in Scorpio sextiles Saturn. With the square to Saturn, maybe the answer is no. Or we say no. Or we say yes, but there are consequences/limits/conditions. Here's those consequences we talked about earlier.

The Sun's sextile to Saturn is opportunity. But it can feel heavy because of the square and also because, well, it's Scorpio/Capricorn. There are responsibilities here. A certain depth that needs to be plumbed. Something to be merged/purged before any payoff can be received later. With Venus squaring Saturn and restricting what we get, the solar sextile speaks of whatever this is being somehow manageable/necessary. We have to kind of acknowledge what we cannot have right now. The reality of a situation can't be ignored. We come back down to Earth. Big girl pants on. 


On SUNDAY - when TWO personal planets change signs on the same day we are sure to feel it. Venus leaves her home sign of Libra for the deeper/more intimate sign of Scorpio just as the Sun leaves Scorpio for the wider horizons of Sagittarius. 

Venus themes - women, love, money, our values and self-esteem - become more intense.

Scorpio Suns and Ascendants (Scorpio on the cusp of the first house of your natal chart) become more attractive - making them both easier on the eye and it easier for them to attract what they want.

For all of us, our Scorpio houses get more attractive, too ... and more complicated. Although the theme of whatever house is ruled by Scorpio in our natal chart is naturally complicated!

Honesty is recommended for the next few weeks because we will all be feeling our way through everyone's bullshit. While Venus is in Scorpio (through December 15th) we are charged with figuring out what we really want and why we want it. Much of this work will be done unconsciously.

Does the other person/situation make us stronger or more vulnerable?

We could be merging our resources (ruled by Venus) with other people's resources (ruled by Scorpio) - this could take the form of relationship commitments, sex, reproduction, mortgages, financing, cooperative ventures. Things along these lines that we might not normally consider we could be attracted to for the next month.

These attractions could easily lapse into obsessions, so stay frosty.

We could fill hours looking at expensive houses on the internet or other people on Tinder. If something begins to feel like, "we must get this NOW" we will know we have slipped over the edge. It will be time to ask ourselves what we are really looking for. With Venus (and let's not forget Mercury) visiting our Scorpio house the answers will be available to us if we seek them ... and maybe even if we don't.


The Sun moves into "bigger is better" Sagittarius.

Our beliefs, faith, travel, places outside our comfort zones, foreign issues or people, education, 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. Just keep in mind not everything is as real as it seems with Sagittarius - there is a reason much of the season belongs to Santa Claus! 

With Jupiter (Sag ruler) in his detriment in Capricorn this year, and currently sandwiched between Pluto and Saturn (hang in there Sags, this squeeze is almost over) and with Jupiter ruling the South Node - his move into Sag might not feel as good as it has in other years, but -


bolder/expansive future potentials will become more and more visible as the Sun continues his journey through Sagittarius (until December 21st - "the day the world starts back up"). 


Hang in there.

xo all
