November 2 through 8, 2007

General Forecast

An in-between sort of week as we adjust to Mercury’s shift out of retrograde on the 1st and Venus’ shift into Libra on the 8th. A burst of energy on Sunday as the Scorpio sun trines Mars in domesticated Cancer, the last surge we’ll see because Mars flips into reverse on the 15th not to face forward again until January 30. Get ready for a long family trip down memory lane.

Aries: Mar. 20 - Apr. 19

It might seem as if things have stalled, a condition you could normally attribute to Mercury’s change of direction on Nov. 1. But more likely it’s because your Mars ruler is marking time before it comes to a complete standstill and turns retrograde on Nov. 15 at 12 Cancer, the degree it’s at now. This family-centric trip down memory lane lasts until January 30, by which time the Warrior will have you schmoozing with school chums or reprising scenes you acted out with a neighbor or sibling back in September.

Taurus: Apr. 20 - May 20

Beware the green-eyed monster! Even sweet-tempered Bulls may find that for one day this week they are crazed with jealousy. If you’re blowing something totally out of proportion or consumed with an urge to do serious damage, simply blame suspicious Pluto for challenging your romantic Venus ruler. That power-hungry Pluto is in your house of sexual desire and Venus is happily at play in the recreational zone only compounds the intensity of their testy square. Fresh energy from the Scorpio new moon is your escape valve.

Gemini: May 21 - Jun. 20

Read for Taurus. You’re not immune from the eruption of deep-seated emotions that may rise (as from a dead sleep) when loving Venus is at odds with demanding Pluto in your Sagittarius house of partners. Give the ruckus a day or two to subside; by then Venus will have moved on to harmonious Libra and you won’t have to pay that piper. Further shifts in attitude and atmosphere arrive during the Scorpio new moon and your Mercury ruler’s return to that sign and whatever you were into before the Messenger went retrograde on Oct. 11.

Cancer: Jun. 21 - Jul. 22

Moon Children need to sit back and take stock of what’s been accomplished since the Libra new moon, plus what needs to be finished before the Scorpio new moon on Nov. 9 initiates an entirely new agenda. Has Mercury’s turnaround brought you completely up to date or is important data still missing? If need be, give your sources a gentle nudge; time is running out. More than any other time of the year, it’s the Scorpio lunar event that zooms in on your recreational and romantic pursuits, so that’s the direction in which you should head.

Leo: Jul. 23 - Aug. 22

An opportunity to attain domestic bliss might elude you if you aren’t protective of your family’s reputation and their traditions. While militant Mars in your house of friends is on favorable terms with your sun ruler, you might as well notify the troops and stock the larder. You could be in for a longer siege than expected because unpredictable Uranus has invited himself and his generous attitude to the table. So don’t be surprised if there’s a knock at your door weeks before the guests are due to show up for the Thanksgiving feast.

Virgo: Aug. 23 - Sep. 22

Let’s hope you enjoyed the popularity Venus brought to Virgo because the goddess leaving your sign on Thursday may be trailing a juicy scandal in her wake. Nothing smacks of sexuality more than a Venus-Pluto connection, but when the relationship is a challenging square, the stink raised can be difficult to diffuse. Nonetheless, we trust that the Virgin will marshal resources, a colleague here or a plumber there, and deal with the unpleasantness before your Mercury ruler gets back to Scorpio and its suspicious frame of mind.

Libra: Sep. 23 - Oct. 22

Magnetic Venus enters your sign with a flourish, a devoted suitor in hot pursuit. You could inherit a trickier situation than you’re willing or equipped to deal with, so before you accept a casual invitation or an email forwarded from a friend of a friend, take time to check out the source. There’s nothing inherently dangerous about the matter, but if the Scales confront a jealous or possessive person, it’ll be difficult to maintain any semblance of fairness. Better to avoid a scene and the unbalanced people involved.

Scorpio: Oct. 23 - Nov. 21

As you pick up the bits and pieces of business left hanging during Mercury’s retrograde trip, try to take some alone time for yourself. An entirely new cycle begins with the Scorpio new moon on the 9th, one that can clear away old emotional baggage as well as introduce a fresh, purely personal concern. But if you’re worried about a fragile romance, and don’t want it to blow up in your face, then you’ll have to show a modicum of patience, not fiery passion while Venus and your Pluto co-ruler test each other’s resolve. Happy Birthday! 1
