Welcome to November, Libra! At the end of last month, you found creative ways to express your softer, more Venusian qualities, perhaps through a new artistic endeavor. Since the middle of October, communication planet Mercury has been retrograde, and it was important for you to find such an outlet during such a confusing time. Mercury finally goes direct in Libra on Tuesday, November 3, and communication gets back on track.
As Mercury is now in your sign, you may even feel calmer than expected, given the fact that this date is also Election Day. You care greatly about everything that is at stake right now, Libra; you are the sign of justice, after all. If you feel like your anxiety is mostly under control, reach out to loved ones who may need a rock amid all the chaos. If you’re the one who needs some extra support, try to express your needs to those who understand you best.
A day that may be stressful for you is Friday, November 6, as Mercury, which is in your sign, squares restrictive Saturn in strict Capricorn. To put it simply, people may become stubborn on this date and refuse to hear opinions that differ from their own. If a friend or a partner starts building up walls, just step away from the conversation. When Mercury re-enters emotional Scorpio on Tuesday, November 10, communication should become more open and fluid.
Mars, the horny god of war, has been retrograde since September, putting a damper on your sex life and ambition. When this fighter planet goes direct in bold Aries on Friday, November 13, your libido returns, and you may also feel motivated to take on meaningful projects or pick back up anything you’ve pressed pause on for the sake of self-care. However, you may want to wait until after the weekend to go full steam ahead. Take the new moon in Scorpio, the sign of rebirth, on Saturday, November 14, to be still and process the events of this year. If you have any favorite self-care rituals, indulge in those and emerge from the weekend anew.
When firey Sagittarius season begins on Saturday, November 21, you’ll start to find the balance you crave. Together, fire and air bring stability to both relationships and mental health. This is a great time to add some depth to a relationship. During the holidays, since many of us can’t travel as we normally would, seek comfort in your chosen family. When your ruling planet, Venus, enters intense Scorpio on the same date, you may feel some pressure (or even fear) about your financial situation. Recognize that many of your peers are in the same boat, and remind yourself that you’re not alone. Lean on those around you and talk out your concerns. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
